Turning reality, truth inside out


Last week, Bush said the Middle East is a freer, more hopeful place today than when he took office. 
He said the threat from terrorist groups like al Qaeda has been curtailed and that Iran faces greater 
pressure from the international community than ever before. Mr. Bush described his Mideast policies 
as 'ambitious in vision, bold in action and firm in purpose.'...

Bush's vision may have been ambitious and his plan bold, but history will record that he utterly failed to meet
those objectives. He emboldened America's enemies, put Israel's security at greater risk, mired our military in 
an endless occupation and diminished our prestige around the globe. No pixie dust can change that reality."

But the whore media will back him up. 
The newspapers and the networks write the first draft of history.
History will say Clinton was one scandal after another and that Bush protected us from al Qaeda.

Owning the whore media gives the Republicans a tremendous advantage.

A Whitewash for Blackwater


The federal manslaughter indictment of five Blackwater security guards in the horrific massacre of more than 
a dozen Iraqi civilians in Baghdad may look like an exercise in accountability, but it's probably the opposite
-- a whitewash that absolves the government and corporate officials who should bear ultimate responsibility...

As with the torture at Abu Ghraib, Bush is deflecting all scrutiny from the corporate higher-ups who employed 
the guards -- to say nothing of the policymakers whose decisions made the shootings possible, if not inevitable...

Did the guards who were indicted yesterday have any reason to believe they would be punished for the rampage? 
Or were the shootings considered acceptable inside the Blackwater bunker? Company executives should have to 
answer these and other questions -- under oath...

But a real attempt to establish blame for this massacre should go beyond Blackwater. It was Bush 
who decided to police the occupation of Iraq largely with private rather than regular troops

On exposing the idiocy of Z.D. Billingsley. 
He's been polluting the opinion page of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for years. 
His most notorious was a column blaming the Katrina victims for depending of the government. 

I've been reading your site for years, it truly got me through the Bush years.  My late mother 
who always voted Rethuglican actually voted for Kerry because she'd watch along when I'd

Small Isn’t Beautiful
 by Bill Kristol, wearing no pants


Obama and a Democratic Congress are about to serve up a supersized helping of big-government liberalism. 

So, Kristol got a Magic 8 Ball for Christmas?
How does he know what the future will bring?
And why hasn't he moved to Vegas if he has this gift?

Conservatives will be inclined to oppose much of what Obama and his party cook up. And, I believe, rightly so.

But conservatives should think twice before charging into battle against Obama under the banner of 
'small-government conservatism.' It's a banner many Republicans and conservatives have rediscovered 
since the election and have been waving around energetically. Jeb Bush, now considering a Senate run in 2010, 
even went so far as to tell Politico last month, 'There should not be such a thing as a big-government Republican.'

Really? Jeb Bush was a successful and popular conservative governor of Florida, with tax cuts, policy reforms 
and privatizations of government services to show for his time in office. Still, in his two terms state spending 
increased over 50 percent -- a rate faster than inflation plus population growth. It turns out, in the real world 
of Republican governance, that there aren't a whole lot of small-government Republicans.

Oh, so Republicans are really about spending our tax money like crazy?
Who knew?

More new stuff in the BartstoreHOT

What do the Clintons have on Obama?
 Seriously, somebody asked a question that stupid?
  by Camille Paglia


I must admit to puzzled disappointment with his recycling of Clinton era veterans, who reek of déjà  vu. 
Surely we might have expected a better mix of fresh faces and progressive voices? Obama's team may 
have underestimated the labyrinthine personal interconnections and habit-worn loyalties of that cliquish crew.

As for Obama's appointment of Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, what sense does that make except 
within parochial Democratic politics? Awarding such a prize plum to Hillary may be a sop to her aggrieved 
fan base, but what exactly are her credentials for that position?  The secretary of state should be a more 
reserved, unflappable character -- not a drama queen...

As I mentioned in BCR 147, there's a new law, apparently, 
that you can't mention Hillary without mentioning the word "drama."

I'll bet this horse never questioned Kinda Sleazy's qualifications, 
but it's acceptable, no, it's the DUTY of all Lefties to harrass Hillary.

BTW, who is Camille Paglia?
All I know about her is that the vulgar Pigboy likes her.
That's really all I need to know, right?

4200 dead soldiers in two quagmires and still
our national clown continues to play the fool.


"Kos is angry that somebody in the press has the temerity to be shrill about Obama’s 
  continuing failure to provide anyone in his inner circle who represents the Democratic 
  wing of the Democratic party. Obviously, the kingmaker who didn’t actually make the king 
  is fretting that someone might observe the fact that the left-wing blogosphere is currently 
  being used by the Democrats the same way the socons are used by the Republicans." 
      -- demimondian     Link

 I don't quite get what's going on there but Kos does seem to think of himself as a kingmaker.

 I wish I had a dollar for every time Kos says, "This is not about me."

 Kos - his taxes are going up under Obama.

Why I Hate Obama
  by David Sirota (D-Whiner)


Hildebrand is firing up the whaaaaaaaambulance to whine and cry and moan about "the left." 
Really, what is with top Democrats explicitly attacking "the left wing of the Democratic Party" 
in Fox News-style talking points? Why is every substantive, non-partisan, non-ideological 
question of pragmatism from progressives almost automatically portrayed as some sort of 
super-Trotsky-ite, ideological and wholly inappropriate demand for Obama to be a president 
"just for those on the left?" Can anyone even ask a non-ideological question of Obama without
being attacked as some sort of raving left-wing lunatic? 

David, why do you think people see you as a raving left-wing lunatic?

Could it be because you are?

Right now, you can get a lot of exposure by attacking Obama for not being "Left" enough.
Arianna and Kos and other sites will eat that shit with a giant spoon.

The same handjobs who screamed "racist bitch" at Hillary are now screaming at Obama.
What is Obama's crime?  Winning, I suppose.

And notice Hildebrand is using "Fox News-style talking points?"
Well of course he is - he works for Obama!

Our Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 group operated by President Phillip Kellerman
and a Board of Directors with over 80 years in migrant education and human services.

As of September 27, 2007, the Harvest of Hope Foundation has distributed over $582,000 
to migrant farm workers and families around the country for repairs to vehicles, housing, 
utilities, medical services and bills, food, clothing, funeral expenses and tuition for migrant students. 
The Foundation has issued small grants to migrant-related support service organizations.



"It remains a mystery to me why Obama would want to bring in the Clinton circus, 
  which frequently features excessive spin, backstabbing, leaking and messy melodrama. 
  Sen. Clinton is a smart woman with globetrotting experience. But as health-care czar 
  in her husband's administration, she set back that cause by nearly two decades."
     -- Davod Corn, who I used to like, getting it all wrong    Link

 Health care was set back two decades by the Republican screaming 
"Health care is too big to fix and Hillary is a Stalinist/Leninist"
 and the scared-as-bunnies Democrats who agreed with them.
 That's how we lost the Congress in 1994, remember?

 The Clintons are the only people I've ever seen who got blamed for trying.

 Subject: BO writer gropes Hillary's cardboard cutout

Bart, for some testosterone-soaked notion of acceptable behavior, one that feeds, nurtures,
fuels mindless misogyny and sexism, the very monstrous streak of inhumane rights perpetrated
by falsely designated "entitled males"--designated "entitled" by the tacitly condoned psychotic
perspective of patriarchal religious madness that demonize The Feminine" essentially out of
jealousy and fear of the Awesome orgasmic and creative power of the female body that
control-freak patriarchs have wished for thousands of years shackle and whip (either physically
or via emotional Humiliation and societal ganging up on women (see Stoning in the Street),
into a controlled subservient sex-slave mode and therefore tacitly condones all actions that
serve the undermining of female empowerment, female intelligence, education and pubic power,
and orgasm (cliterectomy, "moral" "good" women who practice "celibacy" to be "pure" of that
"evil thing--sexuality that terrifies man")--as the Psychotic patriarchal practice of demeaning,
crushing power of the brighter females of our society, and in some way either shut them up,
steal their power, demean, humiliate, slander, excoriate, publicly stone (emotionally if not
literally) to take them own to the level of groveling silence--categorically kicking them to
the curb with nary a look back.

If you think this "boys will be boys" messing with the Hillary cutout is just normal maleness,
then see how "OK" it would be if the cutout was of Michelle Obama.  Here's what that looks like:

           Saw it on http://guerillawomentn.blogspot.com/
 "Boys Will Be Boys: Obama Speechwriter Groping a Cut-out of Michelle"

To all the naysayers who argue that Obama's head speech writer Jon Favreau is just
having fun with his "little joke" about sexual assault and Hillary: Is it still a harmless joke
when the object is the wife of Barack Obama? Or is it suddenly a horribly offensive act
because now it harms Obama?

Looking at the cutout of Michelle Obama being violated by 27 year-old men (an act that looks
remarkably similar to what one expects of pubescent boys),  I felt should that be really happening,
the American BObots would rise across America waving torches and clubs to Mob hunt-down the
despicable twerps who dared so disrespect Michelle.

Good men need to not condone this crap any longer.  So take it back, Bart.
It's not a Boy's Will Be Boys OKAY thing to do.  It's fucking NOT okay.

Palin can't get anything right
How can we miss her if she won't go away?


Sarah Palin seems to know a thing or two about Canada.
The failed VP candidate said her home state and Canada have a lot in common.

“We have our love of hockey, our love of the great outdoors and hunting and fishing 
and all those things that really attract us to this northern part of our globe,” said Palin.

She mentioned a more practical reason for Alaskans to know something about Canada,
“... we drive through your country to get even to our own state capital.”

RJ (D-world traveling pillar) tells me you can't drive to Juneau,
that it is accessible only by car boat or plane.

I believe this proves RJ is right, which begs the question: 

How stupid is Sarah Palin?

She's Alaska's governor and she doesn't know you can't drive to the capitol?

 Subject: Let's bash Obama!

Hey Bart,

Thanks for the bartcop radio, it's great; I've never had a chance to listen before and am really enjoying it. 

I wanted to sound off on these guys who are suddenly bashing Obama because he's not [fill in the blank] enough. 
I agree wholeheartedly with that guy who said "he can't even get a tuna melt at the White House yet and already 
he's a failure?"  Especially obnoxious to me is Avarois at AmericaBlog; as you said he all but committed murder 
for Obama, and suddenly he's turned on him because Obama can't produce magical unicorns for all? 

I stopped reading AmericaBlog when he was hating on Hillary; after the election I tried it again but that only 
lasted a couple of days and I deleted him.  As my old Oklahoma-born mother (Tupelo, 1908; it's no longer there) 
would have said, "he'd kick if he was in swimming."

I loved the Dick Cheney duck hunt, though!  See, some people do follow the linked pages.

Keep hammerin!  I was hoping you could take a break, not that I'd want you to, 
but it looks like we'll need you more than ever!
