"When she walks in a room, folks just explode."

"Just after William Henry Harrison had passed away thirty days into his term from pneumonia 
and before Polk took the oath of office, Melvin Irving, a White House butler, was placed in charge 
of the Republic for fifteen minutes until Polk got back from the bathroom due to severe colon distress 
over his sudden and unanticipated rise to Commander in Chief."

Will Obama Stay the Course?
  by Robert Scheer idiocy 


I do so want to believe that Barack Obama is on the right track.  Indeed, he's downright inspiring 
when he defends constitutional restraint on the presidency and shuns torture. Bush is so yesterday, 
but imagine how panicked we would now be if McCain and Palin were about to take the wheel.

Yet, it all does hang on him. Yes, Obama. The superstar, and not that supporting cast of retreads 
from a failed past that have popped up in his administration in the making. Now that we have the list 
of his top economic and foreign policy picks --we've got to hope that it's Obama who is using them, 
and not the other way around.

Retreads from a failed past?
That's what he's calling Obama's cabinet?

Who do the complainers want in Obama's cabinet - Kerry?   Kucinich?

One Note Horn


One of the clearest signs that the Republican brand is in for a long stint in the woods is the fact that 
Republicans continue to shill for the same policies that got us into the financial hole we find ourselves in. 
George Bush spent eight years making the argument that for any ill that ails the country, the answer was 
a tax cut, usually for the wealthy. When gas prices soared higher and higher, he said, "Pass my tax cut." 
As he started a second war after his first one and deficits mounted ever higher, his response was, 
"Pass my tax cut." Short of stemming the rising waters of New Orleans' Ninth Ward, if there was 
a problem, a tax cut was the solution.

The best news is the GOP reigns of power are, apparently, being given to Sarah Palin.

America on Food Stamps

Food stamps, the main U.S. antihunger program which helps the needy buy food, set a record 
in September as more than 31.5 million Americans used the program -- up 17 percent from a year ago.

The number of people using food stamps in September surpassed the previous peak of 29.85 million 
seen in November 2005 when victims of hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma received emergency benefits, 
said Jean Daniel of the USDA's Food and Nutrition Service.

"It's a disturbing trend," said Ellen Vollinger, legal director with the Food Research and Action Center. 
She expects more people will turn to food stamps as unemployment rises and the economy remains weak.

One in 10 Americans were participating in the food stamp program as of September.

More new stuff in the BartstoreHOT

When will we Liberate Iraq?

I know, I know, Bush liberated the Iraqis. But when will we liberate them from Bush's liberation? 
Well, ideally, the American people will rise up tomorrow and force Congress to cease funding the 
occupation and to vote an immediate and complete withdrawal with a veto-overriding supermajority, 
not to mention impeaching Bush and Cheney. I raise that possibility not so much because I've been 
drinking as because long-term movements for systemic reform require awareness of what we're missing. 
If we ever replace a Congress dominated by money, media, and parties with one loyal to us the people, 
it will be because we tragically realize what so very easily could have been.

Obama Backs off Windfall Profit Tax
 by David Sirota


Obama is not planning to implement a windfall profit tax on oil companies because 
prices have dropped below $80 a barrel, an aide said on Tuesday...

Between this move and the move to wait to repeal the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, 
it seems like the Obama team is buying into the right-wing frame that raising any taxes
- even those on the richest citizens and wealthiest corporations - is bad for the economy.

Does Sirota not get that things change?
Don't we want a president who adjusts his thinking when the facts change?

Last summer, gas was $4 a gallon, BIG OIL was making $100 million a day
and the economy, while not robust, was at least alive and kicking.

Today there seems to be no bottom to the price of oil and the economy 
is all but dead - and David Sirota feels cheated - again.

Is David Sirota the new Andrew Sullivan? (Not a compliment)

 Subject: Special Carping Award

I'm getting nearly as tired as you of all the carping criticisms of Obama (I'm glad you are putting them
down at every opportunity; you are truly following thru on your pledge to support the nominee). 
Way too many are not.

Anyhow, what about a special award for the worst example of gratuitous carping?  
You could call it the "Golden Carp Award." 

Could provide some fun.

The problem is everybody seems to be attacking my president.

What web sites can I go to and not read a litany of complaints?

Gimme Some Twos


In the early stages of one of the nightly poker tournaments I used to deal a hand came up where 
a bunch of people were calling to see a flop. The blinds at this point of the tournament are very low 
and allow for people to see flops cheaply compared to the amount of chips they have. The action got 
a younger looking fellow who looked at his hand, thought about his action, and then said "I don't think 
anyone here would fold this hand, except me." and then confidently pushed his hand into the middle 
of the table. He then added "Well maybe you would." to me, as if he knew I was going to one day 
be writing poker columns on the internet and wanted to flatter me.

The Threat of Realism


Still some 50 days out from inauguration, it's far too early to jump to conclusions about how the 
Obam administration will handle war on two fronts, but if you think war on two fronts is a bad idea, 
there's some writing on the wall that doesn't bode well.

While there is ample grist for optimism, only a fatal optimist or a militarist could fail to be concerned 
about the rough sketch emerging for Iraq and Afghanistan.

Of all the gifts left to Americans by Bush, the two wars he started are most troubling. The presidency 
is an extraordinarily difficult job under any circumstances, but to inherit the job with two botched 
wars-turned-quagmires underway sets a whole new standard. 

Think how much easier it would be for Obama to deal with these problems if he knew 
his party was standing with him instead of carping and stabbing him in the back.

Nice to see you picking up the torch and pushing back against the religiofascists of the
Uhmurrrkkkun Fambly Assoseration.  What a gin-you-wine gang of knuckle-walkers!

In last night’s show, I read the entire headline list those creeps put together, and there wasn’t
a Koreshdamned WORD about the poor guy in Valley Stream, New York who got squished
to death by a mob intent on getting big bargains to celebrate the birthday of the “Prince of Peace.”
Not.One.Word.  But they’ve got their well-closeted panties in a twist over Costco.

I hope lots more of your readers push back, too.  It’s fun!
It’s even more fun to get on their mailing list (use a separate e-mail addy) and use THEIR servers
to send “Action Alerts” talking about what gang of goobers they are to your elected representatives.

 Subject: What's wrong with Marc Rich

Dear Bart,

The pardoning of Marc Rich can be considered to be one of the last acts in the Iran-Contra coverup.
Although the pardon of Rich became a favorite soapbox issue for the Republicans, properly it should
offend OUR side much more than theirs.

Rich made his billions in pursuit of a Reagan administration policy, namely; the supply of US made weaponry
to Iran through US-allied third nations (mainly Israel and Britain) in return for dirt-cheap illegal Iranian oil.
It is well-known that the Reagan administration policy was to keep the Iran-Iraq War going as long as possible
by secretly defying the UN ban on weapons to Iran. To quote Allen Clark, the UK Defense Minister at the time,
"The interests of the West were best seved by Iran and Iraq fighting each other, and the longer the better."

It is not hard to trace this policy from its origin in the Reagan/Bush 1980 October Surprise, through the early
secret pro-Iran policy, to Iran/Contra, to the subsequent panicky pro-Iraq shift that brought the war to a (close).
But the legacy of the Iran-Iraq War continued in the 1990-91 Desert Storm, the starvation of Iraq under the
US/UK/UN sanctions regime, to the most recent and comprehensive destruction of the potentially strongest,
most progressive Arab State, which is being transferred from the imperial control by the US to the imperial
control of - guess who? - Iran.

For those few Americans who truly understand the history of US Middle East policy, the Marc Rich pardon
is highly offensive. Why did Clinton do it? He said he did it for the Israeli Prime Minister, and I believe that
to be pretty close to the truth.

John, from your writing I can't tell what's fact and what's opinion.
All these years we've been getting oil from Iran?
Also, I read your third paragraph 4-5 times and I have no idea what it says.

And yes, I think I remember Clinton saying he pardoned Rich as a favor to Israel,
so why is our whore media crucifying Clinton for doing Israel a solid?

 Subject: The vulgar Pigboy

 Bart, you mentioned Rush saying, "Appointing Hillary is a brilliant stroke by Obama"

Get real!  This is such bullshit...Rush trashing Hillary....

I agree.

There's no way anyone would challenge a sitting president from their own party,
Hillary certainly wouldn't...if she as loyal a democrat as you say then it's bullshit....
the last person to serious challenge a sitting president from their own party was
Ted Kennedy against Carter (1980) and Kennedy got his ass whuped and handed to him!!

You are correct!

Both Bill & Hillary knew if Hillary didn't get the Democratic nomination and Obama won
the presidency, her next shot wouldn't be until 2016.

So far, you're making sense...

This is a slap in the face to a fine loyal democrat Hillary Clinton, and Limbaugh jumped on it....
because of his hate....and you being such a guidable follower of the pigman agreed with him...
You are shameless & uninformed and the word integrity also comes into question as well.

I have no idea what you thought you read.

BTW, what is a "guidable follower?"
Did you mean "gullible?"

If so, how could you accuse the guy who started Rush Limba - Lying Nazi Whore
of being gullible when it comes to believing anything that lying rat bastard says?

I said it was crazy for Rush to claim he had some major insight into the 2012 race because,
like you just said, Hillary certainly is not going to challenge a sitting Democrat president.

You and I agree, so what makes my opinion shameless & uninformed?

Jesus, I have 2256 issues online, which is maybe 120,000 topics over 13 years
and you misread one partial sentence and bring my integrity into question?

What excuse could you have for such a boneheaded blunder?

Saving the Big 3 for You and Me
 by my good friend Michael Moore


My Chrysler is four years old. I bought it because of its smooth and comfortable ride.
More than a dozen times in these years, the car has simply died. Batteries have been replaced,
but that wasn't the problem. My dad drives the same model. His car has died many times, too.
Just won't start, for no reason at all.

A few weeks ago, I took it to a Chrysler dealer and the latest fixes cost me $1,400.
The next day, the vehicle wouldn't start. When I got it going, the brake warning light came on.
And on and on.

You might assume that I couldn't give a rat's ass about these miserably inept crapmobile makers.
But I do care. I care about the millions whose lives and livelihoods depend on these car companies.
I care about the security and defense of this country because the world is running out of oil -- and when
it runs out, the calamity and collapse that will take place will make the current recession/depression look
like a Tommy Tune musical.

So, here's what I propose:

Mrs Bart drives a Honda.
In almost four years, it hasn't had a single problem.
It runs perfect - smooth and quiet and it's still in perfect condition.

The Bartmobile is a Toyota.
In over three years, I've had one problem - a bad battery.
It runs perfect - smooth and quiet and it's still in perfect condition.
Oh, and the paint is still on both cars.

I wish things were different but the facts are the facts.

 Subject: The Rude Pundit is with you, Bart.

But let's just say this as Barack Obama introduces his national security team and people huff and puff 
about whether they're hawks or not progressive enough or problem children or disappointing or whatever: 
Ultimately, the cabinet does the bidding of the president. Sure, they offer ideas and guide the departments. 
But they are policy implementers. Nothing less and nothing more. You have to be willing to go along with 
the boss to do the job, or you don't take it. And it's all a political game. If we know anything at all about 
Barack Obama, it's that he's one crafty mother-effer in the realm of politics.    Link

 Subject: mistaken or lying about scooter libby


You claimed that Libby was found guilty of "serous crimes" but he wasn't.
He was convicted of being dishonest to the feds.

The guy that "outed" the never in Valerie Plame was a Democrat named Richard Armitage.
Have you considred finding out what is actually going on by doing some fact checking
or are you too busy writing down what you "feel" is the truth?
 Carson, the patience on trial monkey

Monkey, as usual, you have it all wrong.
Libby effectively blocked the investigation with false answers and eventually 
fell on his sword knowing that this crooked president would pardon him.

As far as Plame not being a real secret agent, the CIA said she was.
They asked for the leakers to be punished, remember?
