"The invasion of Iraq was a bandit act, an
act of blatant state terrorism, demonstrating absolute contempt for

Excerpt: Cheney's interview with wanker Chris Wallace
was filled with significant claims, but certainly among
the most significant was his detailed narration
of how the administration, and Cheney personally, told
numerous Democratic Congressional leaders --
repeatedly and in detail -- about the NSA warrantless
eavesdropping program. And, according to
Cheney, every one of those Democrats -- every last one
-- not only urged its continuation, but insisted
that it be kept secret.
CHENEY: Regarding the terror surveillance
program. We did brief the Congress. We brought in the chairman and the ranking member, House and
Senate, and briefed them a number of times up until late '01 up until '04 when there was additional
controversy concerning the program.
At that point, we brought in what I describe
as the big nine — not only the intel people but also the speaker, the majority and minority leaders
of the House and Senate, and brought them into the situation room in the basement of the
Not that I'd ever believe anything Cheney said, but it explains a lot.
Why else would Pelosi take impeachment off the table?
Excerpt: It's no upset, and it certainly doesn't compare
to the vice-presidency, but Sarah Palin didn't come away
from the 2008 campaign empty-handed: she's been
named "Conservative of the Year" by the right-wing
magazine Human Events. And, in an extra-special
honor for Alaska's governor, the announcement was
made by no less a personage than the She-Thing
herself, Ann Coulter.
'Sarah Palin wins HUMAN EVENTS’ prestigious “Conservative
of the Year” Award for 2008
for her genius at annoying all the right people.
The last woman to get liberals this hot under the collar
would have been … let's see now … oh, yeah: Me!'"
Remember how Ann Coulter got free McDonald's French Fries for life?
When I was loaning money for a finance company, we almost always
"controlled the checks." That means if Bob Smith wanted to borrow
$15,000 to buy a car, we'd make the check out to the seller instead
of Bob Smith. That way we knew where the money was going.

You have to. If not, they'll beat and belittle you,

The nicest thing I can say about the current crop
of GOP ideologues is that they're consistent.
With America currently in the shape of an ER
patient on a crash cart, Republican politicos still spew
their psychotic Bizarro World views; sort of
a fragmented funhouse mirror reflection of their already
distorted priorities. Up is down. Right is wrong.

in an Ohio federal court regarding

Here's a kick in the ass for ya... I went to Fox

Excerpt: Hannity has been a prolific and influential purveyor
of conservative misinformation. But never has he
so enthusiastically applied his talents for spreading
misinformation as he did to the 2008 presidential race,
focusing his energies primarily on Obama. Day
after day, Hannity devoted his two Fox News shows and
his three-hour Hate Radio program to "demonizing"
Obama, starkly explaining in August: "That's my job.
... I led the 'Stop Obama Express.' " Hannity
promoted and embellished a vast array of misleading attacks
and false claims about Obama. Along the way,
he uncritically adopted and promoted countless Republican
talking points and played host to numerous credibility-challenged
smear artists who painted Obama as a
dangerous radical. When he was not going after
Obama, Hannity attacked Obama's family, as well as
Hillary and other progressives, and denied all
the while that he had unfairly attacked anyone.

Excerpt: Obama's first appointments to the Justice, State
and Defense Departments mark no radical change.
Rather, they return to a centrist consensus familiar
from the Clinton years. But pragmatic incrementalism
and studied bipartisanship will do little to
undo the centerpiece of the Bush/Cheney era's legacy. At its heart,
that regime was intent on forcing the Constitution
into a new mold of executive dominance. Obama enters the
White House in a slipstream of forces that will
hinder attempts to abandon this constitutional vision. He may be
a careful constitutional scholar, but we can't
rely on Obama alone to reorient the constitutional order. It will be
up to progressives to insist on fundamental repudiation
of the Bush/Cheney era.

I have two questions...
1 - Did Kerry's Skull and Bones association help
him decide to abandon any recounts
and investigations in Ohio? Surely he is
not so dumb that he could not see that this
christian/gop/deathcult wacko being the sole
vote counter in Ohio was suspicious.
2 - Why didn't they steal it for McCain this year?
I like Obama... and I really get a good feeling
from Michelle... but damnit - I can't shake the
feeling that if he wasn't playing ball he'd have been
Wellstoned, JFK'ed, Lennon'ed, Reagan'ed, etc,
I really hope Obama is a trojan horse and he forces
all the manufacturing back to the US,
and he repeals all the spying, wiretapping, renditions,
torturing, and restores all our freedoms and rights.
I hope the unions grow stronger and the middle-class
makes a come back. But the longer Obama
isn't a target of these scumbags, the more I
think I'm watching pro wrestling.

Excerpt: The tragic and suspicious death of Karl Rove's
election thief in chief should send a clear message
to Al Franken and other key liberals: don't be
riding in any small private planes.
Death by air crash now seems to be the favored
means of ridding the Rovian right of troublesome characters.
The most recent is Michael Connell, who died Friday
night when his private plane crashed near
his northern Ohio home. Connell was the information

the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections, along
with a few in between---possibly including the

the death of Paul Wellstone.
