The Supreme Court pick of Obama's dreams
 by Joe Conason


Every Supreme Court nomination is not only a strategic presidential opportunity but a clear measure of the nation's
current political dispensation. For Barack Obama, the anticipated chance to replace Justice David Souter has arrived
at a time of massive political and ideological shifting that this decision can underscore. Glancing over the latest list of
potential nominees, there is at least one highly qualified jurist whose selection would emphasize change -- and might well
lure the Republicans into yet another of the foolish mistakes that have done them so much damage.

The name of that particular nominee would be Sonia Sotomayor, daughter of a working-class Bronx family
from Puerto Rico, who now serves on the Second Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals.

Sotomayor represents everything that a president choosing his first justice in his first term could desire. As a female
her elevation would begin to bring gender equity to a forum where historically men have exercised far too much
unchallenged power over the lives of the women. As a Latina, her rise would symbolize the next stage in the full
enfranchisement of immigrants whose language, status and poverty have too often turned them into scapegoats
for the cultural and economic costs of globalization.

 Subject: Specter

Dear Bart:

Specter is the sole inventor of the single bullet theory.  As a lawyer working for the Warren Commission, 
Specter demonstrated a long and consistent pattern of distorting and/or concealing all of the evidence that 
disproved the official lone assassin story.   He was instrumental in the entire fabrication and is no possible 
explanation for his behavior that does not involve his active participation in the cover-up.  Specter was clearly 
a willful co-conspirator in the JFK assassination cover-up.  I don’t want him in the Democratic Party.

Maybe a non-traitor Democrat can beat him in the primary.  If so, look for Specter to run as an independent.  
He would rather switch to independent coming out of a Democratic primary instead of a Republican primary.

But seriously, we need Specter like we need Bush.  
The Democratic Party should tell him that it doesn’t want him.

Jeb Bush: Time to leave Reagan behind


Jeb Bush said Saturday that it's time for the Republican Party to give up its "nostalgia" for the heyday of the Reagan era
and look forward, even if it means stealing the winning strategy deployed by Democrats in the 2008 election.

"You can't beat something with nothing, and the other side has something. I don't like it, but they have it,
and we have to be respectful and mindful of that," Mr. Bush said.

Jeb, often mentioned as a potential candidate in 2012, said President Obama's message of hope and change
during the 2008 campaign clearly resonated with Americans.

"So our ideas need to be forward looking and relevant. I felt like there was a lot of nostalgia and the good old days
in the [Republican] messaging. I mean, it's great, but it doesn't draw people toward your cause," Mr. Bush said.

ha ha

That's what the GOP needs in 2012 - another Bush.

Specter Blames GOP for Death of Jack Kemp
 Kemp was known to shower nude with O.J. Simpson


Arlen Specter upset pro-life advocates again over the weekend. He blamed the death of Jack Kemp
on pro-life policies that he claimed are anti-science.  Kemp died over the weekend about a bout with cancer.

Now, Specter has, as some pro-life advocates say, "shamefully" used the occasion of Kemp's death to justify his political switch.
"Well, I was sorry to disappoint many people. Frankly, I was disappointed that the Republican Party didn't want me as their candidate,"
he told the dogs on "Face the Whore."

"But as a matter of principle, I'm becoming much more comfortable with the Democrats' approach. And one of the items that I'm working on,
is funding for medical research," Specter added. "If we had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would
have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alive today. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine."

What's keeping every gay couple in America from getting married?
I think there are four states now where it's legal - so what's holding them back?

Hi Bart,
The reason we don't run off to one of the states that have legalized gay marriage is simple, it wouldn't count 
in our state when we returned home. If you got married in Vermont, your marriage would still be recognized in Oklahoma, 
mine wouldn't so why bother. I don't think anyone has run any statistics yet on New York, but I do know personally several 
couples who did run off and get married when the Gov. there said the state would recognize them. If my state of North Carolina 
said they would recognize gay marriages from another state, my girl friend and I (we've been living together for 12 years now) 
would be on the next plane outta here.
Thanks for asking, I'm sure there are lots of your readers who are wondering the same thing.

I love it how republicans are now referring to themselves as independants or libertarians. 
They are so completely ashamed of their party that even in so obviously a partisan letter, they still can't call themselves a republican.

Average Americans and the GOP


Speaking of Joe the Plumber ... the conservative faithful continue to manufacture evidence to support a charge
once aggressively advanced by the McCain campaign: that liberal Democrats and NBC News have an elitist's
disdain for ordinary people like Joe.

Next to pictures of Joe the P, Miss California, and a couple of teabaggers, Fox Nation yesterday asked :
"Why Does NBC News Attack Average Americans?" The question linked to a short post that links to a
muddled Newsbusters rant -- parsed nicely by News Hounds -- accusing David Schuster of advancing an
"attack campaign" against Carrie Prejean, the "average American" who recently expressed her support of
"opposite marriage" to Miss USA judges and a broadcast audience.

John Hawkins at Pajamas Media similarly complains of the "intrusive, public scrutiny" given to Joe the Plumber,
"a private citizen who merely asked an inconvenient question to Barack Obama." Ordinary Joe and Average Carrie:
icons of the real America who are unfairly attacked by liberals. Come again?

The GOP has gotten away with "We want tax cuts so the average guy has more money in his pocket." for years.
It's always been a sham because the tax cuts always went to the super-rich.

But it was the poorest people who voted to give the super-rich more money - people from MS, OK, AL and UT.
I blame the Democrats for refusing to list the facts.

Clueless GOP - Out of Touch


The incredibly clueless stewards of the incredibly shrinking Republican Party would do well to recall that it was
supposedly Abe Lincoln, a Republican, who said you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.

Not only has the G.O.P. spent years trying to fool everybody in sight with its phony-baloney, dime-store philosophies,
it’s now trapped in the patently pathetic phase of fooling itself.

The economy has imploded, the auto industry is in danger of being vaporized and more than half of all working Americans
are worried that they may lose their jobs in the next year. So what’s the Republican response? To build a wall of obstruction
in front of efforts to get the economy moving again, and then to stand in front of that wall chanting gibberish about smaller
government, lower taxes, spending cuts and Ronald Reagan.

It’s not a party; it’s a cult. I’m no fan of Arlen Specter, but if I were a Republican, I wouldn’t be shoving him out the door
and waving good riddance. This is the party of Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, and the dark force
who can’t seem to exit the public stage or modify his medieval ways, Dick Cheney.

The Republicans refuse to admit there's anything wrong with being whores for Bush.
As long as they continue to fight for torture, 2012 should be a cakewalk for our side.

Whose "Day of Reckoning"?


Here's a question to ponder this morning. It's one I've been pondering for some weeks now:

Is it worth your time and effort trying to engage in rational discussions with the increasingly nutty and frantic mouth-breathers
on the political right? Or are were they all genetically wired at birth to become hybrids of Grandpa Simpson and Mr. Burns?

The only reason I mention this is that last night, as is my ritual, I settled in with the Wall Street Journal for my daily recon-mission
into conservative "Neverland," - a blame-free zone where the words, "Wow, we were sure wrong about that!"are never uttered.

I was doing fine, until I reached Neverland's dark heart, the WSJ Editorial Page - a vortex of swirling nonsense where cocksure
neo-cons rhetorically goose step in a tight clockwise circle - much like that roiling red spot of hot gas on Venus that roils madly
but never seems to move or change.

In yesterdays editorial the editors were wringing their hands over all things Obama, in particular his budget and related
economic rescue spending. Here's how they ended that piece:

"Mr. Obama is more popular than his policies, and sooner or later the twain shall meet. For now, we are living in
another era of unchecked liberal government. The reckoning will come when Americans discover how much it costs."

The sheer chutzpah of it staggers the mind of anyone not on heavy doses of anti-psychotic drugs.

Churchgoers love their Torture


The more often Americans go to church, the more likely they are to support the torture of suspected terrorists, according to a new analysis.

More than half of people who attend services at least once a week - 54 percent - said the use of torture against suspected terrorists is
“often” or “sometimes” justified. Only 42 percent of people who “seldom or never” go to services agreed, according the analysis released
Wednesday by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life.

How can they believe Christ was crucified AND support torture?
And wouldn't Bush's crooked lawyers have found a way to crucify people legally?
