Excerpt: Bush issued a license to the CIA to torture and
kill. The Justice Department was offering assurances that there would be
no prosecutions. A prosecution would likely
have resulted in disclosure of many uncomfortable details - how the Bush
approved not only techniques, but even specific
Of course they did.
Torture is right-wing Viagra.
A prosecution might have brought the truth close
to the surface. Can’t have that. Is there any chance that this process
will be reversed by the Obama Administration?
So far, signs run in the opposite direction. Panetta offers absolution:
“Officers who act on guidance from the Department
of Justice - or acted on such guidance previously - should not be
investigated, let alone punished. This is what
fairness and wisdom require." He adopts the "go forth and sin no more"
What if Bush told Blackwater that rape wouldn't
Would Paneta, Holder and Obama stand behind that
illegal order, too?
Leon Panetta’s promise of absolution is being
implemented - by way of cover-up.
And (Obama's) Department of Justice is complicit
at every step along the way.
I hate to see *my* president involved in this shit.
When Reagan was president, the hijackers would say,
"Give us tons of weapons and we'll let this
Reagan would agree (he loved dealing with terrorists) but then those
pro-Iranian bastards would
grab another American hostage - so Reagan lost and America lost
and the kidnap victim lost,
but Reagan's terrorist friends won and Iran won and BIG OIL won - but
that's all OK because
America's whore media always portarayed Reagan as "tough
on terror" and, of course,
the idiots Democrat agreed - every f-ing time.
Ask any handjob Republican what he liked about Reagan and he'll probably
"He made us proud to be Americans again."
Under Obama, we got the kidnap victims back and the bad guys
took a dirt nap.
Yeah, Reagan was soooooooo great at combating terrorism.
Reagan was great - why are you dissing a great man?"
"After 9/11, what’d they do? They pointed at
Bill Clinton and said, "why didn’t he do more about catching Bin Laden? Why didn’t he take further steps to prevent
this eventuality, this possibility?'"

Tom Juan, stay on their side - we don't
"I don’t believe President Bush ever said that." -- Fox News’s
Bill Hemmer, to Tom Juan Williams, Link
Bush never blamed Clinton?
So who did he blame - his father?
Did he blame Saint Reagan?
It won't help to blame Carter because Reagan/Bush
created and funded Al Qaeda after Carter left office.
Bill Hemmer - are you saying Bush took responsibility for his
(at the time) biggest failure?
Excerpt: It’s sad. Several generations of college students
learned their grammar from the uninformed bossiness of Strunk and White,
and the result is a nation of educated people
who know they feel vaguely anxious and insecure whenever they write “however”
or “than me” or “was” or “which,” but can’t tell
you why. The land of the free in the grip of The Elements of Style.
So I won’t be spending the month of April toasting
50 years of the overopinionated and underinformed little book that put
so many people in this unhappy state of grammatical
angst. I’ve spent too much of my scholarly life studying English grammar
in a serious way. English syntax is a deep and
interesting subject. It is much too important to be reduced to a bunch
don’t-do-this prescriptions by a pair of idiosyncratic
bumblers who can’t even tell when they’ve broken their own misbegotten
"Watching Glenn Beck of Fox News rant about
“progressive fascism” – and muse about armed insurrection – or listening to mainstream pundits
prattle on about Barack Obama as the “most polarizing President ever,” it is hard to escape the conclusion
that today’s U.S. news media represents a danger to the Republic.
-- Bob Perry, talking like the old Bob Perry - before he caught Hillary
OK, so the world's a violent place.
Did the Democrats finally figure that out?
If you're going to travel on the high seas you can't be caught alone.
If, ...say, ...there are a dozen handjob pirates trying to board your

they're going to OWN YOU until they're BORED with robbing and raping
Oh, really? Is that reality? Is that what pirates do?
Yeah, lady, and Johnny Depp won't be one of them.
If you're caught alone ... and you're being threatened with bodily harm
or death by a person
or persons ...(don't get me started on that English Major crap) ...anyone
who boards your boat

Why don't all Democrats get the non-surrender thing?
Gee, it's almost like you'd be stupid to be caught alone without
Why does "prepared" mean "evil" to most Democrats?
The characture that the smart people are millstoned with is,
"I don't believe in violence to solve a problem."
Well, that's liberal horseshit.
Face the facts, there are times when ass must be kicked.
Ever see the old TV series Kung Fu? Every episode, he'd explain to the bullies:
"Dudes, let's all chill, because
violence is a ...language that's primarily best spoken by the duck... ...something"
...I don't know
And then he'd kick the bad guys in the teeth - end of show.
Why are Liberals so against defense?
You wacky liberals - we all live in the same world!
When you awake to breaking glass,
when your ship gets boarded by pirates, it's all the same thing.
Granted, if you live in an upper-East side townhouse with a doorman
who wears a fancy top-hat, maybe YOU
don't need personal protection.
But what about the other 309,900,000 of us?
Why is self-defense a clear priority on water - but not on land?
Excerpt: NASA earlier held an online contest to name a
room (or "node") at the international space station.
With write-in votes, the name "Colbert" beat
out NASA's four suggested options: Serenity, Legacy, Earthrise and Venture.
On Tuesday's "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central,
astronaut Sunita Williams announced that NASA
— which always maintained it had the right to
choose an appropriate name — would not name the node after Colbert.
Instead, Node 3 will henceforth be called Tranquility,
the eighth most popular response submitted by poll respondents.
The node's name alludes to where Apollo 11 landed
on the moon — the Sea of Tranquility.
All in good fun - but why hold a contest and then
give the award to the eighth-place finisher?
We have broken the $2,000
level! Thanks to all who have been so generous.

Excerpt: WILLIAM K. BLACK: To know everything. To know
who committed the frauds. Whose bonuses we should recover.
How much the assets are worth. How much they
should be sold for. Is the bank insolvent, such that we should resolve
it in this way?
It’s the predicate, right? You need to know the
facts to make intelligent decisions. And they’re deliberately leaving in
place the people
that caused the problem, because they don’t want
the facts. And this is not new. The Reagan Administration’s central priority,
at all times,
during the Savings and Loan crisis, was covering
up the losses.
BILL MOYERS: So, you’re saying that people in
power, political power, and financial power, act in concert when their
are in the ringer, right?
WILLIAM K. BLACK: That’s right. And it’s particularly
a crisis that brings this out, because then the class of the banker says,
“You’ve got to keep the information away from
the public or everything will collapse. If they understand how bad it is,
they’ll run for the exits.”

Just Google "super thermite WTC" for some

I'm terribly afraid there's no other conclusion
to draw: the collapses of those buildings
that day were engineered, and the entire
plot had to be an inside job.

Excerpt: Newt Gingrich, who fancies himself something
of a futurist, recently prophesied : "If the Republicans can't break out
of being the
right-wing party of big government, then I think
you would see a third-party movement in 2012." Conservative ideology, see,
cannot fail, it can only be failed. In Gingrich's
fevered imagination, principled conservatives vigorously objected to George
profligate ways; they deserted the administration
in droves after Cheney reportedly said that Reagan "proved that deficits
Of course, that rebellion never actually happened.
Most Republicans rediscovered the evils of deficit spending only after
Notwithstanding the fact that 90 percent of the
existing national debt was created under Reagan and the two Bushes, many
are running around
with their hair on fire about a proposed tax
increase of 3.6 percent on income over $250,000 - a tax increase Obama
needn't cause to be
enacted, but merely wait for George W.
Excerpt: Anna Nobili, 38, spent 20 years performing in

Again, the reason they have so many listeners is because Facsists fear

"beaners" are lazy,

rich's little dogs.
Bart dude, I'm not exactly sure what your message
is here. Are you saying that we progressives shouldn't
voice our disagreement over policies which we
find objectionable because a progressive is in the big chair now?
If I'm getting all the information correct I
have to agree with Olbermann on this one.
This issue isn't something I would've expected
from the Obama admin.
P.S. Simon Bros. corn and heirloom tomato
seasons is coming! WOOHOO!
If Olbermann had acted like an adult in 2008, instead of a giddy schoolgirl
with a crush,
he'd look far less stupid now.
Remember, MSNBC had to take away his anchor duties on election night
because it was so embarassing to see him gush over Obama.
Or was it that he just hated Hillary so f-ing much?
I'm ready for some good corn, too.
I figure we got about 60 days to go.
Excerpt: Stevie Nicks is throwing a hissy on reports that
Lindsay Lohan wants to play her on the big screen.
"Over my dead body," Nicks barked at The
New York Whore Times when asked about it.
Adding, "She needs to stop doing drugs and
get a grip. Then maybe we'll talk."
Isn't it sad when fading stars can't get in the news unless they attack
somebody who is?
Last week, Faye Dunaway attacked Hilary Duff, saying she wasn't a "real"
Gee, Faye, how many Oscars had you won by the age of 21?
And Stevie, you were drug-free when you were 22? Really?
When you were 22, if you were famous enough to have hundreds
of paparazzi following you 24/7,
how many of your personal, embarassing secrets would've screamed from
the tabloid headlines?
I'm not Lohan's biggest fan, but she's as pretty as any woman in Hollywood
and for someone who
never grabbed the brass ring in the looks department, Nicks ought to
be thrilled to have someone
as good-looking as Lindsay immortalize you on film - but I guess those
sour grapes taste sweeter?
Hey, I know an actress who'd be a better fit - Courtney Love!
Sidebar: Human nature is a funny thing.
I'm going to get 5-10 e-mails saying that I'm crazy, that Lohan
