"It helps erase a stigma against people of
African descent that has lasted more than 500 years and included some of the lowest moments in
our supposedly modern and enlightened age -- Jim Crow, apartheid, slavery. It allows people
of all colors around the globe to point to Obama and feel as if their struggle may not be a
dead end after all, and that someone who shares at least some of their experiences and perspectives
can offer genuine respect and perhaps even empathy to millions who have so frequently been overlooked
and despised. It is a sign to humanity that the United States can walk democracy like
we talk it. This is no small thing."
-- James Hannaham, Link
Excerpt: Diva palin said Friday McCain campaign aides
who pushed negative stories about her
after the election are "jerks."
Citing unnamed McCain campaign sources, media
reports said Palin did not know Africa
is a continent and did not know that the United
States, Mexico and Canada are parties to
the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Reports also characterized Palin as a "diva" and
described her throwing tantrums
in reaction to negative campaign news coverage.
I don't get why they are doing this.
First, it makes the McCain people look super-stupid for picking somebody
The McCain loads are saying "We were such
idiots to pick that stupid woman."
Second, it's killing her chances to be the Fascist nominee in 2012 -
why do that?
Why not keep quiet, let her rise up and take control of the Reich,
can claim he was the "genius" who discovered this "hidden gem?"
But hey - don't stop stabbing each other - please continue.
I find Fascist-on-Fascist wars immensely entertaining.

Excerpt: The financial world was fixated on Capitol Hill
as Congress battled over Bush's request for a
$700 billion bailout of the banking industry.
In the midst of this late-September drama, the Treasury
Department issued a five-sentence notice that
attracted almost no public attention.
But corporate tax lawyers quickly realized the
enormous implications of the document:
Administration officials had just given American
banks a windfall of as much as $140 billion.
The sweeping change to two decades of tax policy
escaped the notice of lawmakers for several days,
as they remained consumed with the controversial
bailout bill. When they found out, some legislators
were furious. Some congressional staff members
have privately concluded that the notice was illegal.
But they have worried that saying so publicly
could unravel several recent bank mergers made possible
by the change and send the economy into an even
To this day, nobody mentions this missing money was f-ing STOLEN.
Nobody wants to talk about that like they refuse to mention Iraq's
oil pumps with no meters.
Why does the whore media refuse to mention the big crimes?
But Oh, if O.J. says "Stay in this room"
it's worldwide news we need to know about.
Excerpt: Whatís the purpose behind these attacks on Sarah
Palin from Fox News? Itís not a secret that
Rupert Murdoch donated to Hilaryís campaign.
Itís not a secret that 81% of Fox News reporters
and employees donate money to the Democratic
party - thatís a crazy high number for an allegedly
conservative TV channel. Itís no secret to the
gay community that Shepard Smith is 'one' of them.
Itís no secret that Fox News has really hot chicks
and Iím tuning in just to look at them!
Weíre on our own as conservatives and we need
to be prepared for the next couple of years.
I love it when Fascist dogs go after each other.
And who knew Shep played for the Rangers?
Excerpt: Despite Obama's dominance nationally, Democrats
are reeling in conservative Oklahoma,
where McCain made his strongest showing and the
GOP snatched control of both houses
of the Legislature for the first time in state
McCain got 65.6 percent of the vote in Oklahoma,
the highest state percentage for him in
the country, even though Democrats hold an edge
in voter registration by about 300,000.
McCain swept all 77 counties, repeating Der Fuhrer's
feat four years ago against Kerry (D-Quitter).
No Democrat has won a presidential race here
since Lyndon B. Johnson's landslide in 1964.
Oklahoma puts the "S" in stupid and they're f-ing proud of their stupidity.
"I believe that the media had their thumb on
the scale. Maybe if the media had been fair, we still would have lost. But there
were two different standards of scrutiny for us and Obama. I take nothing away from Obama; they
ran one hell of a campaign. But the press became another one of the environmental disadvantages
we had." -- McCain aide Mark Salter (R-Sour Grapes)
Dude, your problem was you had no candidates.
Rudy was a cross-dressing, pro-abortion gun grabber.
Romney wears "magic underpants" and has 6 wives.
Thompson was too lazy to campaign.
McCain was hated by your party when he won the primaries.
Sure, the press was biased, but they were biased for your side
the last eight years so why don't you go suck on that?
Oh, and could you run that crazy swimsuit model again in 2012?
"I would like to congratulate President-Elect
Barack Obama, ladies and gentlemen. Without Senator Obama, we would still

I watched President Elect Obama's first press
conference and I was particularly impressed
with him defining himself as a "mutt like me".
We are a mutt nation and we as a nation have
turned our backs on our muttiness.
Perhaps in these times of uncertainty it's time
for us to be a mutt nation again
and identify with our mutt leader.
"Kissyface runs all around the country talking
up McCain and trashing Obama, and Obama's share of the Jewish vote
goes up? Maybe the real hidden story of the 2008 election is this: Even Jews
are sick of Lieberman's shtick by now." -- Mike Madden, on Obama winning 78 percent of the
Jewish vote Link
Excerpt: It's impossible to exaggerate the special significance
of this election.
In so many ways, the election of Obama is nothing
short of revolutionary.
It represents a 180-degree change of direction
for American policy and politics.
At least for the next eight years -- do Republicans
seriously believe they can dislodge
Obama with Sarah Palin? -- we won't have to fight
the White House any longer.
The White House will actually be fighting for
We will soon have a president who supports all
the issues we have worked so hard to achieve:
civil rights; women's rights; gay rights; workers'
rights; universal health care; protecting the environment;
and making our schools, again, the best in the
world. And, of course, we'll welcome a president who
believes in protecting our basic freedoms and
respecting the important limits on executive power enshrined
in the Constitution. Not to mention the joy of
having a president who doesn't mangle the English language.
Plus, Obama isn't afraid of science, so we can actually move forward
again instead of backwards.
I heard someone say on FOX News that the same Americans who were booed
the last few years are now being cheered when they enter a room.
It's like that all over the world.

"The Republican idea factory has dried up.
And weíve got to catch up on the key issues of our times -- health
care, renewable energy and education." -- Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty,
Hey Tim, I have some free advice for you:
Stop being super-Nazi pricks on every issue.
Stop borrowing money to give to the super-rich and
stop pretending affordable health care means we're all "socialists."
And what do you have against education?
You tell kids to stay in school - why?
So they can get a degree and be called "egg headed Harvard elites"
by uneducated dirtbags like Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh?

that hammer for so long and EARNED it!
Bart, you've run my favorite site in the whole
wide world for so long.

You've spent years excercising your rights for
exactly the reason our Founders defined those rights,
to voice dissent against an out-of-control government.
You stuck by your candidate, as any good
citizen should. When it came time, you put the
country first when your candidate had to step aside.
That makes you a true patriot as our Founders
envisioned, on all counts.
And you had an effect. You took an active part
in one of the most important historical periods in our
history, even in world history. We won. We all
finally won. You can be especially proud. I'm not

rifts once again. Well, some accountability is in order, too.
And we've shown we can do that, and much much
Great fight, Bart, keep swingin'.
"It is of course a great thing that we are...electing
a black President. It's just a crying shame it had to be this shallow, empty man, who
has never shown a flicker of interest in wealth creation, whose head is stuffed with all the vapid nostrums
of 1980s student leftism, and who seems not to mind the brazenly thuggish tactics of his
supporters." -- John Derbyshire again, trying to be the biggest asshole in

McCain, it will at least be nice to finally see a black American become President.

the GOP is.

Excerpt: While there continue to be many blogs, including
a lot of very good ones, it seems to me that one
would be hard pressed to make the case that there's
still a "blogosphere." That vast, free-wheeling,
and surprisingly intimate forum where individual
writers shared their observations, thoughts, and
arguments outside the bounds of the traditional
media is gone. Almost all of the popular blogs today
are commercial ventures with teams of writers,
aggressive ad-sales operations, bloated sites, and
strategies of self-linking. Some are good, some
are boring, but to argue that they're part of a
"blogosphere" that is distinguishable from the
"mainstream media" seems more and more like
an act of nostalgia, if not self-delusion.

Jack, thanks for that.
I'll fix you up with some BCR to help pass the time
until Obama can repair Bush's failed economy.
Thank YOU Bart for making me laugh in the aftermath
of Kerry's defeat and helping me keep the faith
with Hillary and with Obama. For years I wondered
why the common sense wisdom of Dr Martin Luther King Jr,
of Cornell West and of so many other intellectuals
was being drowned out by platitudes and sound bites and
arguments about patriotism. D'Souza had the nerve
to write an editorial on Dr King's birthday about how
Booker T Washington was more praiseworthy than
Dr King. Like, who the f--- was he to choose who
our heroes should be. I was proud that my red
state turned blue (Virginia.) I knew the writing was on the
wall after Webb's election to the Senate but
the results were slow in coming. At the risk of being called
unpatriotic, I've got to say I'm so proud of
my country again for doing the right thing!
Just wanted to say that I sent you $100 Ė for
the steady, intelligent support through the last 10 years,
the countless times Iíve taken refuge in Bartcop.com
when I thought the world had gone crazy,
and my appreciation for you, Mrs. Bartcop and
