Quote of the Day

"Obama has just become president 
  and the ball is in his court. There are 
  severe limits to what the GOP can do 
  over the next couple of months. In fact, 
  Republicans might be better off doing 
  nothing at all."
      -- Bill Kristol, just fired from the NYWTimes,   Link

  Bill, no need to worry.
  The backstabbing Democrats will block
  and attack Obama so you don't have to.

"If you think about liabilities for Obama, Joe Biden’s up there, but Michelle Obama’s right there. Michelle Obama's
got this Stokely Carmichael-in-a-designer-dress thing going. If she starts talking, as Mary Katharine suggested,
her instinct is to start with this 'blame America', you know, 'I’m the victim'. If that stuff starts to come out people
will go bananas and she’ll go from being the new Jackie O to being something of an albatross."

Palin, Misunderstood Intellectual?


The two things about Sarah Palin that I don't think have been adequately appreciated are, number one, she really
wasn't that different than Barack Obama in terms of experience and time in office, and [things] like that. The real big
difference between the two was she hadn't campaigned non-stop for two years, and had she campaigned non-stop on
the national stage for two years she'd have been just as polished as Barack Obama. She's a phenomenal politician and
there's no better retail politician on the planet than Sarah Palin with a microphone in front of a crowd. So I think the big
experience gap was the one that is about running on a national ticket - he had a lot more experience there and it showed up.

I love it - keep thinking that way, you nutty, Fascist dogs.

The biggest difference between Palin and Obama is that Obama has a brain.
That crazy bitch couldn't even name the newspapers she reads - did she forget the name
of the only major newspaper in Alaska?  Can someone that stupid really be president?

Palin's idea of campaigning was to mock people smarter than her.
If you want to run her in 2012, I might even donate to that cause.

I live 30 miles south of Pitttsburgh, this place is going nuts, Super Bowl fever is well underway,

Bart,  did you see Dick Armey on Hardball last night?

Total fucker, as per usual.
It's amazing how these disgraced fucktards get commentator jobs on these shows.

I may not totally agree with you about the whore press, I actually do respect aspects of MSNBC
and love NPR, but to give Dick Armey a sounding board and the way he insulted Joan Walsh was
breathtaking even for a colostomy bag like Dick Armey.

I trust you survived the icestorm that paralyzed 2009 United States infrastructure.

Take care, buddy.

Gene Lyons: Closing Gitmo


All but the most far-gone adepts of the Chicken Little Right have long understood the need to shut down the notorious
prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The damage done to U.S. prestige has been incalculable, enabling its enemies
to portray America's vaunted commitment to democratic values, human rights and the rule of law as a sham.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates long has advocated closing Guantanamo. As Obama signed the executive order last week,
he was surrounded by 16 retired admirals and generals who'd urged the action. Major Gen. Paul Eaton, who has a son on duty
in the Middle East, told the New Yorker's Jane Mayer that "torture is the tool of the lazy, the stupid and the pseudo-tough."
It's also perhaps the greatest recruiting tool that the terrorists have.

This last point can't be stressed enough. By turning tyrant and bully, placing itself outside and above the Geneva Conventions,
which outlaw cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, the Bush administration forfeited the moral high ground, no doubt creating
a hundred Islamic extremists for every one incarcerated at Guantanamo.

 Subject: Republicans oblivious to economy crisis

After 8 years of a Republican spending orgy and looting of the treasury Republicans are now posing as if they are
fiscally conservative by being obstructionists. When the Republicans were in power Vice President Cheney declared,
"Reagan proved deficits don't matter". Their solution to the current crisis is the same things they did to get us into this
financial mess - more tax cuts for the rich. But with even the rich losing close to half of their wealth in the last few months
even the rich have turned against the Republicans. There is no longer an excuse for Republicans to show up in Washington
and collect paycheck and not be part of the solution to the problems the Republicans created.

"Wow, that is quite the disgusting display. One only wonders what threats compelled his fealty to Lord Baal.
Notice he never explicitly states exactly what he’s apologizing for. With conservatives, what’s unsaid is always 
at least as important as what’s said. Sometimes more important, like when you’re lonely in a bathroom stall."

It's Up to Us


Obama really is the president of the United States. Not only was our eight-year national nightmare over; but
we now have a leader both worthy of being admired, and cool enough to be on a pop art poster in a hip café.

And we had elected him. Enough people - nearly 70 million of them - for whatever mix of reasons,  (hatred of Bush)
had risen above ancient selfishness and prejudice to do the right thing.

Not loathing the leader of your nation is a very wonderful thing, especially if you still have some of that old love of country.
That doesn't mean we won't disagree with him, or that he won't make mistakes. What it means is that it is our country again.

You may think I have far too rosy a view of Obama, and you may be right. That doesn't matter much. This does:
No matter what we think of our new president, there is a mistake it is essential to avoid — expecting him to fix things for us.

Honeymoon ended before it began


Even though the country is behind Obama as he starts - he has the highest approval ratings on record - the sense Inside the Beltway
is rather fizz-less. There are a number of reasons. Obama essentially started governing the economy weeks ago, so his “honeymoon’
was over - at least among the political and chattering classes here in Washington - before he was even inaugurated.

And though the country is hurting, badly, the president is in the odd position of having to convince voters that the situation is about
to get much, much worse. It’s a task F.D.R. didn’t have in 1933, when unemployment was near 25 percent when he was sworn in.

Obama’s plans are themselves part of the problem: they are not sufficiently radical to blow up the familiar, paralyzing partisan axis
of argument about the role and size of government in our lives.

It’s not so much a matter of the plan’s size - though some economists do think it’s not big enough - as it is the lack of imagination
and shrewd strategy. In haste to spend, he and his aides in too many cases simply looked for programmatic spigots to turn on.

Too pragmatic?

What idiot wrote that - Oh, Howard Fineman.

It figures.

 Subject: Interesting article in San Francisco magazine

Dear Bartcop,

The current issue of San Francisco magazine has a very interesting forum of people credited with helping
to bring about the election of Barack Obama (http://www.sanfranmag.com/obama).  Although they forgot
to include you, one quote, by none other than Markos Moulitsas, reminded me of things I've read on your site:

"Traditional progressives act as if politics is a high-minded debate about ideas. No!
  Politics is politics, you have to win to make a difference, and you can't bring a spork to a gunfight."

Perhaps BartCop and DailyKos have much more in common than they have differences?
I love your site; keep up the good fight!

"The John Thain news just further reinforces the notion that to be a CEO at a major corporation requires one
to be part psychotic, part sociopath. These people are so often removed from everyday reality and can tell a lie
better than Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct -- it's not all that surprising when hearing about the details of Thain's
reprehensible actions. If it was any of us, you wonder how you could face your neighbors or acquaintances in town,
but these people don't come into contact with mere regular folk so they have nothing to worry about when it comes
to shame or embarrassing encounters. And I'm willing to bet the people Thain does hob-nob with will likely forgive
him or worse, understand and empathize with his apparent motives."

The Arizona Cardinals, threat or menace?
  by Mike the Dealer


The Cardinals come into Super Bowl 43 with a load of anger and hatred directed and them and what they stand for in the NFL.
In a season of insanity, we have witnessed  the #1 seeds of both conferences beaten in their first playoff games. We’ve seen an
11-5 team, that in 2001, used an 11-5 record to secure itself a bye week in the playoffs, miss out on the playoffs outright.
We watched a team that won one game the previous year, win 11 and it’s division. We saw the Atlanta Falcons, who were
supposed to go nowhere with a rookie QB and a Head Coach nobody thought was worth hiring, end up making the playoffs.

All of that pales in comparison to the story of the Arizona Cardinals who as we have been told time and again, were a putrid,
loathsome, horrible 9-7 this season, and through the corrupt seeding of the flawed NFL playoff format, managed to host two
games against teams with better records on their way to a Super Bowl.

Child Rape: Mahony under federal investigation



Authorities are applying a legal theory in an apparently novel way. One federal law enforcement source said prosecutors 
are seeking to use a federal statute that makes it illegal to "scheme . . . to deprive another of the intangible right of honest services."

In this case, the victims would be parishioners who relied on Mahony and other church leaders 
to keep their children safe from predatory priests, the source said.

After the thousands of child rapes,
after the decades of "priest rape" headlines,
after the billions of dollars paid to buy the victim's silence,
who in their right mind would trust a priest with their male children?

Also, why is it when a bank fails we expect the CEO to step down
but after their decades-long rape party, the top Catholics get to keep their jobs?

Driven by Revenge?


Hardly had Bush slunk out of Washington before his apologist Ross Baker, the Rutgers political scientist,
defamed those seeking his prosecution as motivated by "revenge." They "should let their hate 'die away,'"
Baker advised in his January 27th USA Today article. Bush's critics are mere low types "possessed of
a kind of legalistic blood lust that can be satisfied only by criminalizing conduct of which they do not approve."

Nowhere does Baker credit the Bush posse now forming up with seeking justice after the frightful firestorm
of death and destruction Bush called down upon Iraq. No, as far as Baker is concerned, Americans should
make "allowances for errors in judgment" by the lying imbecile that killed a million human beings, drove four
million from their homes, killed four thousand of our sons and daughters and wounded thirty thousand more.

If a man robs a bank, and rapes and tortures and murders the tellers and customers,
is it "revenge" to want that bastard brought to justice?

Bart, you have to read Russ Baker's "Family of Secrets" just to get a taste of how truly evil they are, and how truly venial W is. 
By Koresh, I thought I knew, but the farther I get into this book the uglier it is and the worse the family is.  

I knew when I looked at him in 1999 that I didn't want him to be president, but good lord. 
All he needs is a higher body count and he'd be on a par with Hitler.
