Excerpt: Obama named federal appeals judge Sonia Sotomayor
as the nation's first Hispanic Supreme Court justice on Tuesday,
praising her as "an inspiring woman" with both
the intellect and compassion to interpret the Constitution wisely.
Obama said Sotomayor has more experience as a
judge than any current member of the high court had when nominated,
adding she has earned the "respect of colleagues
on the bench," the admiration of lawyers who appear in her court and
"the adoration of her clerks."
Plus, she was first nominated by Bush the Smarter so she seems like
an easy confirmation.
I would've preferred a more radical Leftist, but she'll do.
The biggest problem is she's been nominated by the party of Spineless
If any Rethug says, "Boo," look
for several stab-in-the-back Democrats to vote against her.
But if the Democrats really want to win (Should I bother to finish
this sentence?) they'd answer all
complaints with, "The Rethugs hate her because she's a woman and
because she's Hispanic."
So you have every talk radio Nazi and every cable Fascist and the whore
Times and whore Post screaming insults at her,
but we should always reply with "They hate her because she's a Hispanic
woman," and stay on that point.
Not only would that strategy prove to be a winner, but the Thugs would

Excerpt: Two top Bush-era officials on Friday rejected
Cheney's scathing criticism of Obama,
saying the country's national security was not
Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who served in
the same post under Der Fuhrer Bush, and Tom Ridge,
the former head of homeland security, both voiced
disagreement with Cheney a day after he attacked
Obama's performance as the new commander-in-chief.
Gates said in an interview that opponents of Obama's
decision to close Gitmo were engaging in "fear-mongering,"
a reference to Cheney's stance on the issue.
Defending the president's decision to shut Gitmo, Gates said the prison
was damaging America's image and served as a
propaganda tool for Al-Qaeda.
No surprises here.
Apart from the fact he's out there flailing about
in hopes of winning over at least some public opinion,
but more so some possible future jurists, what
we're seeing now is what we've known all along: who
was really running the country from 2001-2008?

You have Cheney now attempting to protect and
defend his legacy (ass?), not necessarily their legacy.

Does anyone know the story of the Great GM Paint Scandal?
Excerpt: The New York Whore Times, which helped sell Bush's
Iraq War with a bogus story about aluminum tubes for nuclear centrifuges
and withheld evidence of illegal spying on Americans
for more than a year, is again mishandling a story that panders to the
The Times lead story on May 21 was headlined,
"1 in 7 Detainees Rejoined Jihad, Pentagon Finds," and starts out saying
that a Pentagon study has concluded that “about
1 in 7 of the 534 prisoners” transferred out of Gitmo "returned to terrorism
or militant activity."
But that is not what the Pentagon can possibly
know. Beyond the weaknesses in the Pentagon’s evidence, which is
deep inside the Times article, there is the unsupported
assertion by the Times that the detainees have "returned" to violent activity,
thus assuming that the freed prisoners had previously
been engaged in terrorism or other extremism.
Even assuming that the study is correct about
one in seven engaging in militant activity after release, the evidence
is lacking about
the prisoners previous acts of terrorism because
– if such evidence existed – the Bush bastards presumably would not have
In other words, the most that the Times should
have reported is that the Pentagon study claimed that one in seven engaged
militant activities after leaving Guantanamo.
It is entirely possible that some ex-prisoners became radicalized and joined
extremists because of their sometimes brutal
treatment in U.S. custody at Guantanamo.
Plus, if ONLY one in seven "rejoined" their terror networks,
isn't it possible that six out of seven were innocent to begin with?
How many goat herders were tortured for 6 years because they "might"
have known something?
"You simply MUST be vocally and passionately

arguments by changing the definition of words, Link
"Luntz aims to confuse voters about which party
wants reform. He warns Democrats that they risk seeing their message co-opted
and a health overhaul die this year unless they aggressively confront Luntz's tactics. Because
they know they cannot win the argument honestly, Republicans are resorting to being
lying assholes. Democrats must not let them
get away with it." -- Paul Begala,

I'm using my channel-flicker to flick through

named "Dick Cheeny" giving a speech at the "American

about to slide off the side of his face and expose
his skull, so I stop and watch.
He isn't speaking about enzymes at all. As far
as I can tell, he's talking about torturing people -- namely,
that President Obama, who is president, which
means he is in charge, which means he decides American foreign policy, which means everyone
else can shut up, isn't doing enough of it.

Excerpt: Conservative radio asshole Eric "Mancow" Muller
(sample quote: "Obama can keep his "hope", the rest of us would like
to keep our money, guns, and God!") decided to
prove that waterboarding isn't torture by subjecting him self to it on
Of course, getting waterboarded for a limited
duration under circumstances you control is nothing like being waterboarded
as a prisoner. Still, the experiment was interesting:
"The average person can take this for 14 seconds,"
Marine Sergeant Clay South answered, adding,
"He's going to wiggle, he's going to scream,
he's going to wish he never did this."
With a paramedic on hand, Mancow was placed
on a 7-foot long table, his legs were elevated, and his feet were tied
Turns out the stunt wasn't so funny. Witnesses
said Muller thrashed on the table, and even instantly threw the toy cow
he was holding as his emergency tool to signify
when he wanted the experiment to stop. He only lasted 6 or 7 seconds.
"It is way worse than I thought it would be, and
that's no joke," Mancow mooed, likening it to a time when he nearly
drowned as a child. "It is such an odd
feeling to have water poured down your nose with your head back...It was
instantaneous...and I don't want to say this:
I haven't seen this Mancow asshole for years,
but I remember writing in a back issue that he made Rush the
vulgar Pigboy seem reasonable by comparison.
I saw him on TV, probably CNN, and he was such a screaming,
f-ing loon, CNN turned off his microphone and
he stood there flailing him arms and screaming with no audio.
But at least he told the truth about waterboarding - as if he had a

it could only be that his torturers got off on torturing him.
Remember that 24 when they tortured
Jack to death, only to bring him back and torture him to death again?
I give you my Nancy Grace Guarantee that's what they
did to Khalid just because he had no way to stop them.
"Mancow had the guts to put his mouth where
his mouth was, and the guts to admit he was dead wrong. As you saw, he not only said it is torture
and that he would have admitted to anything to make it stop. So the offer to the coward Hannity - a thousand
dollars a second he lasted on the waterboard - is withdrawn. Hannity, you are now unnecessary." -- Keith Olbermann,
"From the very first--the notion that those
who oppose his policies saw 9/11 as a 'one-off'-- Cheney proceeded to mischaracterize, oversimplify and distort
the views of those who saw his policies as extreme and unconstitutional. This is the habit of demagogues. Cheney's
snarling performance was revelatory and valuable: it showed exactly the sort of man Cheney is, and the sort of advice
he gave Der Fuhrer Monkey. I hope he continues to speak out. We need his voice to remind us what we've
-- Joe Klein, Link
"If there is another terrorist attack on America,
Cheney has ensured that rather than uniting behind the sitting administration –
as conservatives insisted we all must do eight years ago – this country will be torn in two.

Excerpt: There's a chance that the substance of Cheney's
Thursday speech could have swayed Americans, could have changed
the minds of some of those who've come to trust
President Obama on national security issues. But as is so often the case
when Cheney is involved, the messenger -- and
his tone -- made that an unlikely prospect.
Cheney came off as bitter and angry, lashing out
against those who challenge what he and the Bush bastards did during
their time in office. The speech was peppered
with caustic attacks on Obama and other opponents of the Bush bastards'
"For all these exacting efforts to do a hard
and necessary job and to do it right, we hear from some quarters nothing
outrage based on a false narrative," Cheney said
at one point. "In my long experience in Washington, few matters have inspired
so much contrived indignation and phony moralizing
as the interrogation methods applied to a few captured terrorists ... people
who consistently distort the truth in this way
are in no position to lecture anyone about 'values.'"
Later, he said, 'The administration has found
that it's easy to receive applause in Europe for closing Guantánamo.
But it’s tricky to come up with an alternative
that will serve the interests of justice and America’s national security.'"
Cheney continues to be the best guy on our team.
After eight years of the Biggest Fuckups Ever,
he's a constant reminder of how good it feels to be done with them.
I hope he continues to spew that Nazi hate with
his best buddy, the vulgar Pigboy, until the next election.
At some point, the majority of the GOP will tell
them to shut up.
What is the point of giving broadband time to
these whack-job conspiracy theorists?
We know for sure that the Bush bastards
are lying about the events of 9-11.

As I came up the elevator, which faces away from
NYC, I saw all these people looking across the river and up at the WTC.
When I got to the top of the elevator, I turned
around and saw the fire in WTC1. People were speaking of seeing
the first plane fly into the building (my immediate
thought was small prop tourist plane, but people said it was an airliner).
There's a clear view of the WTC area from across
