"Make no mistake about this, Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am 
to be vice president of the United States of America. Let's get that straight. She's easily 
qualified to be VP and quite frankly she might have been a better pick than me."

Isn't it odd that we live in a country where 
nobody talks about WHY 9-11 happened?

It happened because the Bush bastards got greedy for Arab oil.
When you invade a country under pretend circumstances,
why are we surprised when that country fights back?

Obama and the Lipstick Flap


Obama addressed the controversy (widely regarded as contrived) over his "lipstick on a pig" remarks 
on Wednesday, accusing McCain of childish distortion and deliberate distraction from more substantive issues.

"I want to address the latest made-up controversy by the John McCain campaign," Obama said. "What their 
campaign has done this morning is the same game that has made people sick and tired of politics in this country. 
They seize on an innocent remark, throw out an outrageous ad because they know it is catnip for the media. 
It would be funny except for the news media decided that was the lead story yesterday. The McCain campaign 
would much rather have a story about phony and foolish diversion then about the future."

The counter attack - both against the media and McCain - was quintessential Obama, positioning himself on 
the high ground while bemoaning the fact that political history is littered with examples of senseless and 
counterproductive attacks. For some Democrats, it may not be enough.

But why settle for that when you could make McCain suck on that so hard
that he'd think twice about pulling this kind of stunt a second time?

Obama has painted himself into a corner with this "high road" crap 
and now his options to smack McCain back hard are very limited.

Seems like every day, McCain kicks Obama down the steps and Obama replies by saying
"McCain kicking me down the steps is old politics and it's counter-productive,"
which is true, but Obama is at the bottom of the steps, bloody and with broken bones.

One thing he could do is cancel his schedule for the next day, then fly to wherever McCain is
and announce "I'm here to confront McCain the Big Liar," and then confront the son of a bitch.

Once word got out that Obama was flying to wherever McCain was to confront him about lying,
I predict the major networks would cut into their soap operas to cover the confrontation.

McCain's options would be to run like a school girl or face the music.

With all the reporters as witnesses, (not tho mention a live feed on all networks) Obama could 
corner McCain and force the room to watch his complete statement in context and then hand the mic 
to McCain and ask him to explain exactly where Obama called that Alaskan moose a pig.

I'd imagine Obama would get an overnight, 10-12 point boost in the polls,
but he'd have to stop being "Mr. Polite" to pull something like that off.

If Obama did this ONE TIME, McCain would be forced to stop such horseshit lying,
but since Obama only wants to win a certain way, he's handcuffed.

Bullies will bully you until you make them bleed.

One punch could turn this race around.
Is Obama willing to throw that punch?

"Spare me the phony outrage. Spare me the phony talk about change. We have real problems

  not diversions, not manipulations. They want real answers to the real problems we are facing."

Bart, it sure seems that an awful lot of your readers are cozying up to that lying pig from Alaska, 
Sarah Pailin, which leads me to believe that more repuglicans are reading you than demos.

 I don't recall printing any pro-Palin letters so on what basis could you assert 
 that my readers like a right-wing Republican? 

 Subject: Palin mail

Perhaps Obama should retract the pig statement and call Palin by what she referred to herself as, 
a Pit-bull, which, since she happens to be female, the proper term for her is BITCH !!

 Who can argue with that?

Sex & Drugs between Big Oil and Interior 
  Who knew they were screwing each other? 


As Congress prepares to debate expansion of drilling in taxpayer-owned coastal waters, the Interior Department 
agency that collects oil and gas royalties has been caught up in a wide-ranging ethics scandal - including allegations 
of financial self-dealing, accepting gifts from energy companies, cocaine use and sexual misconduct.

In three reports delivered to Congress on Wednesday, the department's inspector general, Earl E. Devaney, 
found wrongdoing by a dozen current and former employees of the Minerals Management Service, which collects 
about $10 billion in royalties annually and is one of the government's largest sources of revenue other than taxes.

"A culture of ethical failure" besets the agency, Mr. Devaney wrote in a cover memo. oes 

In other words, "business as usual" for the Bush bastards and their oil cronies.

Very very tired of you beating up our OBAMA - get over it - Support him, you abandoned 
Kerry very early and for 4 years have been shoving Hillary up our ass, saying you would 
support the Democrat - well either support this ticket or go away! 

I blame you for attacking MY party constantly - Obama has been counter punching like a pro, 
he picks his fights - he has more chance to win then Gore or Kerry 

If you don't like Obama, shut your site - and again - FUCK YOU!

Al, you seem to think Obama is running a great campaign.
Did you see yesterday's poll that shows Obama down 20 points with women?

Sure, I could watch Obama hit the iceberg and scream, "He's the greatest" as he sinks,
but I'm trying to wake him up BEFORE he hits the iceberg, that is if you don't mind.

If Obama was running a great campaign and pulling away from the WPE's older twin,
do you think I'd be screaming at him to wake up and start fighting back?

"If McCain can win this election race with a 50-pound ball called "George W. Bush" wrapped around 
one ankle and a 50-pound ball called "The U.S. Economy" wrapped around the other, then he deserves 
to represent America in the next Olympics in any race he wants - swimming, cycling or track - I don't 
care how old he is. He would be the Michael Phelps of politics. Whoever slipped that Valium into Obama's 
coffee needs to be arrested by the Democrats because Obama has gone from cool to cold."

How big is your Obama tax cut?

Jon Stewart gets it Right
 So why can't the MSM bastards do better?


Absent from the fawning media coverage of "The Daily Show" is evident self-awareness that the 
elaborate praise is a tacit form of convoluted self-loathing - in professional terms anyway - among 
the likes of, say, Times journalists. Their own media institution is so circumscribed and so lumbering 
in its daily incarnation that they're apt to be amazed and envious at the incisively documented 
presentations on "The Daily Show."

That's the way it goes in medialand. What isn't conspicuous is apt to be insidious. The tick-tock of 
US media hypnosis may be passably good at looking back - reexamining some aspects of propaganda 
for the Iraq invasion, for instance, years after it occurs - while now helping to mesmerize the country 
into escalation of the war in Afghanistan. But let's not quibble. Everybody has a job to do.

Jon and his staff do a better job - by  far - than the DNC.   The DNC wrings their hands in hopeless 
despair while Jon Stewart digs up an old clip of Bush saying and doing exactly whatever he accuses 
the Democrats of doing - so why can't the DNC hire a few of Jon's researchers and comedy writers?

Why are Democrats always so f-ing helpless?

How weak is a party when some low-IQ Okie proves he can do it better every day?

"Republicans are playing hardball and winning. Just more evidence that their side 
  plays the game far better than ours. Politics is a contact sport, which puts us at a 
  huge disadvantage when only one side seems to grasp the rules."
     -- the great and powerful Kos,   Link

 Kos thinks his man can't play big league politics?

 Maybe things would've been different if Kos didn't constantly run fake polls
 that the whore media quoted and echoed as "proof" that Hillary couldn't win.

Subject: Palin birth records 

Check out this:
This link is for the hospital for births that day and place  Trig supposedly was born.
Awfully quiet that day. 

Plus there's no public record of Trig's birth  

You'd think there'd be alot of publicity for little Wasilla, heh?  but it seems it was all handled
with a cloak and dagger way, since for something so easy  its awfully convuluted.

Aren't births public records? 
Since she put this out for public consumption and its dubious at best, CAN'T  we call her on the BS? 
There's 2 things any self respecting politician can do: 1. tell the truth, 2. not say anything. 

yeah, right, what did I expect?

If you have the right birth date, that is suspicious.

Right now Trig is the most famous baby in the world and if there's no record of his birth, 
that should send out alarm bells to our whore media but they tend to report allegations
about Democrats while helping Republicans cover up the facts.

She's Clueless, He's Worse


Ignorance is bliss, which perhaps explains Palin being so confidently wrong about the root cause of 
the federalization of most of the nation's mortgage market. But what is Sen. John McCain's excuse? 
She, at least, may not know any better.

Distracted by congressional earmarks for which she, as a small-town mayor, had hustled piggishly 
at the federal trough, Palin made the mistake of dealing with an unscripted subject.

Referring to the government's bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Palin opined that the two had 
"gotten too big and too expensive to the taxpayers," displaying abysmal ignorance of the fact that only
now will those privately owned banks become a huge taxpayer obligation."

We've just been thru 8 years of incompetence.
Will America vote to continue that trend?

Palin's National Enquirer Problem 
 Do we have another Edwards on our hands?


John McCain's campaign is threatening a lawsuit against the National Enquirer over a print edition story 
they ran today alleging that Sarah Palin has had an extramarital affair with her husband's business partner.

The allegation would normally be dismissed except that the paper has built up a reservoir of legitimacy 
following its earlier reporting on the John Edwards affair.

"The smearing of the Palin family must end. The National Enquirer allegations are categorically false. 
It is a vicious lie," said McCain senior adviser Steve Schmidt, hoping that they're false.

 Subject: Obama's ground game 

Bart, you asked how Obama could still win when he is being beaten in the polls
and savaged in the media and still won't 'fight' like you want?

You have probably seen the map of the electoral votes state by state where his is ahead by 
a substantial number and the ever important Vegas odds that are still 60-40 in favor of Obama. 
Ever wonder why those numbers got that way? 

It's all about the ground game. The foundation for the ground game was Howard Dean's "Deaniacs" 
and sites like and the much demeaned DailyKos. The 50 state strategy and Obama's 
experience as a community organizer. Obama's people have collected millions of e-mail addresses, 
millions of cell phone numbers and millions of dollars. Not to mentioning registering more people to 
vote than have ever been registered before, especially first time voters.

I agree that Rove is a junkyard dog and needs to be beaten and that he is chewing up Obama on 
the airwaves. McCain and Palin control the news cycles right now, but that won't last.

Obama's careful building of a foundation and a well thought out end game will win in the end. 
Hail Mary passes are exciting and all but it is the ground game that eats up the yards and 
puts you is scoring position.

Anyway that's how I figure.
 billy lloyd

 billy, I hope you're right.

 Subject: Biden

Either Joe Biden needs to come down with a health problem or Obama 
should simply admit he fucked up royally and replace him with Hillary. 

While I don't wish any health problems on Biden, that would be a better cover story.

I'm starting to wonder if Democrats just can't resist losing.

They're running against a mob of shameless thugs who are nothing but a political crime wave.
In fact, f-ing Charles Manson should be able to run against them and win in a landslide.

Yet, Democrats can still figure out a way to lose.

We haven't lost anything yet.
We just need some good luck and a quick flash of spectacular-ness from Obama.

Subject: Is this fighting back hard enough for you?

 Joe Biden, today:

"A few days ago I said that John McCain was a good man, a friend, a guy that I, heck, had worked 
alongside for many years. Well, I'm here to tell you that I was wrong (and it won't be the last time in my life). 
A good man doesn't run a sleazy, deceptive ad accusing his opponent of forcing sex ed on kindergarteners 
and suggesting -- hell, that was the single sleaziest ad that I have ever seen in a Presidential campaign. Ever.

I was shocked and disappointed when I heard at the end that John Sidney McCain had approved that ad. 
A good man doesn't run that ad. A bad man does. And that is what John McCain has become. A man who 
has hired the same dirty trick artists who slandered his own daughter 8 years ago when he was running 
against George Bush. Can you believe that?

Barack Obama never called Sarah Palin a pig but I will call John McCain one now. And if he has a problem 
with it he knows where to find me. I will be on the Senate floor fighting the most obstructionist minority party 
in history to pass S-CHIP -- we call it Meds for Kids -- over the opposition of John McCain."

Nick, that'd be OK, but it never happened.


Our side doesn't believe in fighting back.

 Subject: change? 

People have become comfortable with compassionate fascism, 
and are not ready to exchange that for a left wing boot in the face.

It might help if Obama actually starts outlining this Change he keeps talking about. 
Dumbass America assumes when a black man talks about change 
he's talking about reparations, and kill whitey.

Maybe he could state he will repeal the Military Commisions Act, 
the Patriot Act, and he will indict Bush and Cheney.

 Subject: Sex lies and sex in Kindergarten

Dear Bart

I recently picked up a CD for my 4-year-old daughter at the library (in Germany). 
It is a very gentle way of teaching girls about their bodies and about unpleasant "uncles" 
and that they can say no. I was amazed. And of course saddened. 

As a man, you feel really shitty because so many males abuse kids. I don't know if 
or what this is all about with Obama and the sex ed to kindergarten kids. I agree with it, though. 
And to teenagers, and even to some adults. 
The puritanism that guides Americans has produced more deviants than anything else.

Because Republicans abhor and fear sex, they know the subject will rattle other Republicans.

Obama was (and should be) for "age appropriate sex ed," which includes telling kids 
that adults should be reported if they try to do any nasty stuff with them.

Of course, the GOP turns that into "Mandatory masturbation for kids."

...and I lose readers and subscribers for not being nicer to these animals?

Zombie Feminists of the RNC


In this strange new pro-woman tableau, feminism -- a word that is being used all over the country with 
regard to Palin's potential power -- means voting for someone who would limit reproductive control, 
access to healthcare and funding for places like Covenant House Alaska, an organization that helps 
unwed teen mothers. It means cheering someone who allowed women to be charged for their rape kits 
while she was mayor of Wasilla, who supports the teaching of creationism alongside evolution, who has
inquired locally about the possibility of using her position to ban children's books from the public library, 
who does not support the teaching of sex education.

 Subject: current graphs

Hello Bart,

I realize you're not the national library (they probably are forbidden to keep such things - truthful), 
but do you have any current graphs representing jobs / surplus' / etc comparing the repubs vs. dems? 

The ones I've found stop at 2003 or 4. 
My fathers getting all repub loony and I think graphical representation would be a great message. 
Can you help?  Thanks in advance
 Dennis in Portland

Dennis, I have two recent graphs - I hope this helps.

I suspect this last graph gives Der Monkey too much credit.

I don't remember him creating 5 million jobs in the last 12 months.

Obama says "Jobs are at a 5-year low," and remember, it's important that we compare
Bush to Bush because you see what happens when you compare Bush to Clinton.

 Iraq pumped 3.5M  barrels daily before Bush invaded
 and then they got their big Halliburton upgrades

Bush is stealing up to 6 million barrels of oil per day.
Since oil sells for $125 or more per barrel,
Bush is stealing $750,000,000 every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,
It's the biggest theft in Earth's history but our
whore media is too busy investigating
if Britney wore panties today.

4,155 brave men and women are gone.


All because of Bush's oil greed
