"Republicans make it sound as if America's stature is so fragile, it is easily weakened by casual courtesies at an 
international forum. President Obama, in contrast, acts as if America's stature is strong, and can withstand a handshake 
with a foreign head of state. Since when does the GOP find it useful to promote the idea of American weakness?"

Pigboy Bullies Congressman
 If you make him mad, he just might eat you


Just last week, I wrote that Kansas Congressman Todd Tiahrt had been asked at a Kansas City Star Editorial Board meeting 
whether the vulgar Pigboy was the de facto leader of the Republican Party. "No, no, he's just an entertainer," replied Tiahrt, 
who's running for the U.S. Senate in 2010. 

Whoah. Those are fighting words for dittomonkeys and knuckldragging supporters of Limbaugh.

The Methane Factory alreadyy has gone after people who have refused to crown him king of the GOP -- or, to be fairer, 
at least as a powerful spokesman for the ultra-conservative cause...The money quote from Tiahrt spokesman Sam Sackett to 
the newspaper's editorial board: 'The congressman believes Rush is a great leader of the conservative movement in America
- not a party leader responsible for election losses. Nothing the congressman said diminished the role Rush has played and 
continues to play in the conservative movement.'"

The Democrats pounced.

Add Congressman Todd Tiahrt to the list of spineless Republicans who can’t stand up to their party’s leader – Rush Limbaugh. 
Just days after claiming Rush is “just an entertainer,” Congressman Tiahrt is now singing a different tune. Fearful of Pigboy's retribution, 
Congressman Tiahrt’s office quickly issued an apology praising Limbaugh stating 'The Congressman believes Rush is a great leader.'

 Subject: Gay judges in Miss USA contest?

Miss USA beauty contest judge Perez Hilton, a gay activist, proves the point of the people who voted for California Prop 8 
that there is a difference between the gay world and the straight world. When it comes to Miss USA beauty contest, I don't see 
how it makes sense to have a gay man be a judge any more that a straight man should be a judge at a gay male beauty contest. 

It is just plain wrong for Mr. Hilton to impose his gay values as a test question for gay political correctness in a female beauty contest. 
It is also unprofessional in his role as judge to go on national television and call her a bitch and a c**t.    So as far as I'm concerned 
Carrie Prejean won. I don't recognize Mr. Hilton's vote. If he can't control himself he has no place in a position of responsibility.

GOP Beauty Queen Losing Friends


Former Miss USA Shanna Moakler, who is now the director of the Miss California USA pageant, 
spent the last few weeks in Las Vegas actively promoting her pageant princess, Carrie Prejean.

But Moakler and her business partner, Keith Lewis, a strong activist against Proposition 8, were so infuriated 
over Prejean’s answer to Perez Hilton’s gay marriage question during Sunday’s crowning, they refused to make 
contact with the San Diego native after the show.

"This is why we have judges at Miss USA, so we find the girl to rep us ALL," Moakler Twittered after the pageant.

"I don’t know how you can call a gay man or woman your friend and not want them 2 have the same joys as yourself. 
In my family we believe in equal rights for all, I am sad and hurt, I agree with Perez 100 [percent]. It's one thing to have 
an opinion I am very opinionated n have dealt with backlash from it, it's another to alienate people who cared about u."

Why drag politics into something as stupid and lightweight as a beauty pageant?
Can't a girl wear a bikini without having an opinion on gay rights, guns and abortion?

And why the hell is Perez Hilton famous enough to be a judge for Miss USA? I wish all the people who hate
Paris Hilton would throw a little rage towards this asshole.  All he's ever contributed to society is publishing
pictures of movie stars at the beach and writing "Fat Pig" on their thighs. 

He makes Paris look like the hardest-working woman in America.

Obama Stands Nuremberg on Its Head
 ...but he corrected his mistake soon after


Obama’s decision to spare CIA torturers from prosecution stands the Nuremberg principles on their head. 
“Good Germans who were only following orders” are not exempt from the bar of justice. Individuals must be 
held responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity. 

Justice Robert Jackson, chief United States prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials, declared in his opening statement to the 
tribunal that the men charged “represent sinister influence that will lurk in the world long after their bodies have returned to dust.
They are living symbols of racial hatreds, of terrorism and violence, and of the arrogance and cruelty of power.”

The arrogance and cruelty of CIA officers who torture and brutalize helpless prisoners are not expunged just because, 
as Obama said, they “carried out their duties relying in good faith upon legal advice from the Department of Justice.” 
Attorney General Eric Holder says it’s “unfair to prosecute dedicated men and women working to protect America for 
conduct that was sanctioned in advance by the Justice Department,” but he fails to note these very CIA agents requested 
said authority in order to engage in what all but the most insidious parsing of legal thought recognizes as torture."

 Subject: Pirates 

When you say, 

> "Plus, I don't want to hear any talk of "international law prevents us from taking action."
> "Fuck that. " 

That's pretty much the Bush Administration's attitude toward the Geneva Conventions and international laws against torture.

I thought of another analogy yesterday. 
"There's absolutely no legitimate reason for a black man to be running along Lake Shore Drive in Grosse Pointe, 
 so if one is seen, he should be shot down before he can cause trouble.  I don't want to hear any talk of human rights, 
the rule of law or habeas corupus.  Fuck that."

Obama Lets Loose the Hounds HOT


In a move sure to accelerate the push for a wide-ranging investigation of Bush bastard misdeeds, Obama today said he is 
not opposed to some sort of "further accounting of what took place during this period," as long as it doesn't get "so politicized 
that we cannot function effectively and it hampers our ability to carry out critical national security operations."

He also said that, while he has ruled out prosecution of the people who followed the legal guidance provided by 
Department of Justice, he wasn't taking a position on what should happen to people higher up in the chain of command. 
"With respect to those who formulated those legal decisions, I would say that that is going to be more of a decision 
for the attorney general within the parameters of various laws, and -- and I don't want to prejudge that. I think that 
there are a host of very complicated issues involved there."

Hey Barack, why were you so slow coming to the correct conclusion?
If I had been on your staff, we would've avoided this mess you created for yourself.

First, you had Rahm on Meet the Whore saying the Bush bastards would remain untouched for their crimes.
Monday, you had Gibbs saying the same thing and then Tuesday you (very clumsily) reversed yourself.
If you get things right the first time, you don't have to reverse yourself, your Chief of Staff and your press secretary
don't end up looking stupid and uninformed AND you don't look like MoveOn.org's puppet.

We expect some newbie mistakes - but on something this simple?
Your staff does have IQ's higher than 64 - right?

 Subject: Obama not prosecuting torture

Hi, Bart,

Oresident Obama is a professor of law, correct? 
If so, there is no way that he can ignore the treaties we’ve signed or the rule of law. But…

This is a man who can’t save a baby from a fire without being vilified by the repuglican smear machine. 
What would happen if Obama said that he intends to charge Bush and Cheney with war crimes? 
The right would go ballistic. It’s not Obama’s job to decide what the justice department does, 
it’s Eric Holder’s responsibility, and I believe he will appoint a special council very soon.
 Mike in Mooo Hampshire

After a false start, Obama has reversed himself and says IT IS up to Holder.
I say we put the spotlight on those torture-for-fun bastards and let everyone get a good look
at what they did with our money and in our name, all the while swearing they weren't doing it.

They wanted Torture


The following is a quote from Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen:

Critics claim that enhanced techniques do not produce good intelligence because people will say anything to get 
the (torture) to stop. But the memos note that, "as Abu Zubaydah himself explained with respect to enhanced techniques, 
'brothers who are captured and interrogated are permitted by Allah to provide information when they believe they have 
reached the limit of their ability to withhold it in the face of psychological and physical hardship."

In other words, the terrorists are called by their faith to resist as far as they can -- and once they have done so, they are 
free to tell everything they know. This is because of their belief that "Islam will ultimately dominate the world and that 
this victory is inevitable." The job of the interrogator is to safely help the terrorist do his duty to Allah, so he then feels 
liberated to speak freely. This is the secret to the program's success.

Hear that, everyone? Muslims are allowed to confess and give up information once they're tortured to their breaking point. 
So, really, the poor Muslims we had in our custody wanted us to torture them so they'd finally feel free to speak their minds 
about all the bad stuff they did!

Feingold Unloads On Piggy Noonan
 "Never Heard Anything Quite As Disturbing"


Senator Russ Feingold, one of the harshest critics of Bush torturing, says he cannot bring himself to 
support Obama's apparent decision not to investigate or prosecute illegalities from those years...

That got reversed Tuesday.
In a slightly weasel-like move, Obama now says it's up to AG Eric Holder.

And maybe Robert Gibbs is a good guy, but he sure sounds like a weasel, too.
Did you hear him Tuesday?
He didn't answer a single question reporters asked him.
If our side is innocent, why can't Gibbs answer simple questions?

"If you want to see just how outrageous this is, I refer you to the remarks made by Peggy Noonan this Sunday," he said, 
referring to the longtime scumbaggette on ABC's This Whore with Judas Maximus. "I frankly have never heard anything 
quite as disturbing as her remark that was something to the affect of: 'well sometimes you just have to move on.'"

"Some things in life need to be mysterious," Noonan said on Sunday about the release of the torture memos.
"Sometimes you need to just keep walking...It's hard for me to look at a great nation issuing these documents 
and sending them out to the world and thinking, oh, much good will come of that."

So, when a Rethug president commits crimes, we should look the other way?
You mean like the GOP did when they suspected Clinton had a girlfriend?
That's the kind of "look the other way" Piggy supports?

Hanging out with thugs


So how stomach churning was it to have our president lectured to by the likes of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez 
or even that Nicaraguan pipsqueak Danny Ortega? For this Barack Obama had to go to Trinidad?

The Summit of the Americas, a Bill Clinton invention in 1994, has turned into a thug-fest, a showcase for the 
hemisphere’s bullies to express their contempt for their big, bad neighbor to the north. You know, the nation 
that values such things as human rights and economic freedom.

Human rights and freedom?
You mean America?

The country that spent the last eight years torturing suspects?
The country that spent the last eight years raping suspects?
The country that spent the last eight years kidnapping suspects?
The country that spent the last eight years murdering suspects?

They say about 130 suspects were homicide victims while in American custody, 
people who didn't survive the torture that the right says is so innocent.

We're just lucky the biggest thug in the hemisphere was retired.

"Peggy Noonan said about torture and war crimes: "It’s hard for me to look at a great nation issuing these 
documents and sending them out to the world and thinking, ‘Oh, much good will come of that.’ Sometimes in 
life you want to keep walking."...Some of life has to be mysterious." Isn't that exactly what the church authorities 
said when uncovering evidence of child abuse and rape among their own clergy?...And it's the same reasoning: 
your loyalty to an institution requires covering up its crimes, not exposing them. But there is one difference: 
child abuse was not the actual policy of the Vatican. Torture was the actual policy of the Bush White House."

 Subject: Prison guards prefer pot to booze

Prison guards in the big lockups, especially Federal Penitentiaries, prefer pot to inmate-made hooch! 
I worked with prison inmates at a federal prison, and I had to laugh when I discovered that on weekends, when 
inmates would go to the prison theater to watch a movie, within minutes of the lights going out matches were flickering 
all through the audience, and inmates would be lighting up weed and hash or whatever was smuggled in. 

The guards can clearly see the smoke cloud and smell the weed, but they leave it alone. They know that after the flick 
the majority of inmates will simply return to their cell blocks, hit some munchies and crash. Next time you look at one 
of those little plastic spoons from the DQ, imagine it being filled with some weed and leveled off even with the rim. 
That's $10.00 in prison!

One of the worst prison riots took place in New Mexico in 1980. Inmates broke into the protective custody block
and slaughtered every rat.  Several guards were not spared.  The cause was home made booze. About a dozen inmates 
got drunk on some high octane liquid and the fuse was lit. 

You can't beat Mother Earth's flower, and all the bullshit and fairy tales spread by the DEA is really sickening!
