"You know, I think that Wall Street seems to
maybe have a shorter memory about how close we were to the abyss
than I would have expected." -- Obama, getting mean about
Wall Street calls to 'get government out of the economy'
Excerpt: Der Simian Fuhrer fired a salvo at Obama on Wednesday,
asserting his torture policies were within the law,
declaring the private sector, not government,
will fix the economy and rejecting the nationalization of health care.
"I know it's going to be the private sector that
leads this country out of the current economic times we're in,"
the idiot said to applause from other idiots.
"You can spend your money better than the government can spend your money."
Repeatedly in his hourlong speech and question-and-answer
session, Mr. Monkey said he would not directly
criticize Obama but he would hurl his own feces
at him from time to time. Several times, however, he took
direct aim at Obama policies as he defended his
own during his eight torturous years in office.
Excerpt: Obama was elected with perhaps the best chance
in a generation to reform America's unjust and grotesquely inefficient
health care system. To do so, however, he'll
have to conquer not only entrenched special interests like the insurance
pharmaceutical industries and the American Medical
Association, but his own sentimental rhetoric about bipartisanship.
According to David Broder, "The president has
told visitors that he would rather have 70 votes in the Senate for a bill
gives him 85 percent of what he wants rather
than a 100 percent satisfactory bill that passes 52 to 48." That kind of
gets a certain kind of Beltway pundit purring
like a house cat on a windowsill.
It's a mistake anyway. As the source for this
heartwarming anecdote presumably was Sen. Charles Grassley R-Iowa,
who recently dispatched a peevish Twitter message
complaining about Obama's "sightseeing" while visiting France to
commemorate D-Day, perhaps it needn't be taken
In a column for politico.com, our bipartisan friend
Grassley recently wrote that should it be enacted, "as many as 119
million Americans would shift from private coverage
to the government plan." That, in turn, would "put America on the
path toward a completely governmentrun health
care system. . . . Eventually, the government plan would overtake the entire
Translation: The public plan must be stopped because
it would be too good; private insurance companies simply
couldn't compete. Really, could they be any sillier?
One minute they're yelling that Medicare costs are busting the
budget; the next they're freaking out about how
controlling costs will lead to rationing."
Why are doctors fighting to keep this broken system?
I know why BIG insurance and BIG Pharm are fighting it - they're making
while screaming "Poverty," but what's the doctors' excuse?.
Here's a closeup of that pesky fly
Obama swatted during his interview.
Subject: Can right-wing
hate talk lead to murder?
Normally when someone like Limbaugh dips his pail
further into the cesspool than usual,
and is subsequently criticized, the wingnuts
begin to loudly blat and bleat about Freedom of Speech,
which is all well and good, but there are still
questions that should be asked.
An example would be when does the repetition of
an accusation presented as fact become less an "idea"
than a subversive brain washing technique?
What is the difference between healthy "debate"
O'Reilly is (typically) refusing to accept any
responsibility for this Tiller murder and had Glenn Beck
on his show to discuss the situation.They both
concluded that it was the guy who "pulled the trigger"
who must bear responsibility for the killing
and him alone.
Following this logic,we must also admit that Hitler,
who although given to some *cough* "curious" ideas,
never actually personally laid a hand on anyone
during WW2, and therefore must have been innocent.

David Letterman, comedian, talk show host and
part time liberal apologising repeatedly
as he falls on his sword while eduring the slings
and arrows of unending criticism for doing his job
while conservative political analyst, and Fox
News filth prop Ann Coulter wears the outrage regarding
her "they would have ended up posing for Playboy"
comment about the Jersey wives like a "badge of honor."
So what is the worst trait of our liberals?
Their unwillingness to fight or their tendency
to stab their own in the back?
"I come from Minnesota. Weíre still in a recount
with Coleman and Franken. Coleman won the race on election day,
but that was challenged repeatedly, over and over, with what we feel may be fraudulent
vote [sic], and weíre very concerned about what comes forward."
-- Michele Bachmann, blaming Coleman's loss on ACORN, Link
If I call Bachmann "a crazy whore," why do some women claim that
I just insulted all women?
I get hate mail saying when I run a picture like this...
I'm really insulting ALL women but I can't understand that.
If YOU think Palin's not a whore, then we disagree on that.
When I run a picture like this...
am I calling all men, and thus myself, a whore? Of course
not - so stop pretending
that I think all women are whores when I call Palin a whore.
I'm not David Letterman.
I'm not going to let anyone else tell me what I mean when I publish
Obama may be on his way to being the most hated
president in history.
The scorn and vitriol of the right-wing
nutbags is nothing compared to what
will be heaped upon him by liberals and moderates
if their hopes for change are dashed.
I hope Obama knows he's skating on very thin ice
with the people who stepped up to support him.
If he fails to keep his promises - or at
least explain why he cannot - he will end up being 'most hated.'
His only consolation will be that Bush will still
hold the record as 'worst president ever.'
Joanne from Wisconsin ...
You make a good point.
That illogical gushing over Obama last year could turn to illogical
hatred in a heartbeat.
To this day I don't understand what happened to the Democrats in 2008.
I saw Harry Shearer on the Tonight Show and my first thoughts were about
what a total
bastard and piece of shit he was towards the Clintons last year - and
I always liked the guy..
The Clintons didn't deserve any of the illogical hatred that was spewed
by Randi, Schultz,
Maddow, Olbermann and the other pillars of the Left
Richard Belzer is another one - we drove from DC to Baltimore in 1998
hoping to get
his autograph on the set of Homicide, now I can hardly stand
the son of a bitch.
He sat in for Randi last summer and his hateful anti-Clinton rants
sounded just like Randi's.
Bob Parry, one of the best guys on our team, went completely bat-shit
insane last year
Who can explain what we went thru in 2008?
The Clintons stood in the way of Obama getting in the White House so
they had to be destroyed.
They had to be made into racists for Obama to get to the White House
so at this point, let's hope
Obama never becomes a victim of that craziness from which he benefitted
Excerpt: Barney Frank, one of the nationís leading gay
rights champions, blasted Obama yesterday over a
controversial anti-gay marriage court filing
and is calling on Obama to explain himself.
"I think he made a big mistake. The wording they
used was inappropriate," Frank said of a brief filed by Obamaís
Department of Justice that supported the Defense
of Marriage Act. The DOJ brief, which has touched off a firestorm
of anger in the gay community, argued that states
should not have to recognize same-sex marriages from other states,
just as states donít have to recognize incestuous
marriages or unions involving underage girls.
When will Obama catch up to Ted Olson on gay rights?
Excerpt: Like Rasputin, the unhinged "Mad Monk" whom they
sometimes seem to have adopted as an intellectual role model,
the neoconservatives who brought us the Iraq
war refuse to die. Although they have been figuratively stabbed, poisoned,
shot, garroted and drowned, they somehow keep
standing, still insisting that history will vindicate Bush's glorious crusade.
In a world governed by the Victorian moral code
conservatives claim to uphold, they would be shunned, shamed and forbidden
to appear on television or write Op-Ed columns.
But because Beltway decorum apparently requires that disgraced pundits
given a permanent platform to bray their discredited
theories, the rest of us are condemned to listen to their ravings.
What caused the neocons and their fellow travelers
on the right to sit up in their coffins this time is the almost certainly
Iran election and the massive unrest that has
roiled the country in its aftermath. Outraged that Obama has not behaved
their hero Bush and begun loudly rattling his
saber, the neocons have denounced him as -- you guessed it -- an appeaser.
In a piece titled "Obama's Iran Abdication,"
the Wall Street Journal's editorial page, that bastion of unreconstructed
lunacy, attacked Obama for not supporting the
Iranian protesters more vigorously and derided his "now-familiar moral
in citing the 1953 CIA-backed coup that toppled
Iranian leader Mohammad Mossadegh. In an Op-Ed two days earlier, the paper's
Visigothic editors, who have been calling for
the U.S. to bomb Iran for years, took the opportunity to climb into the
Machine to pay homage to one of George W. Bush's
greatest hits. "It turns out that the 'axis of evil' really is evil --
as liberal sages would have it, merely misunderstood,"
sneered the editors, suggesting that the crackdown should make
Obama rethink trying to strike a grand nuclear
bargain with Iran.
Hey Bro, of all the graphics youíve put up over
the years that one of those GOP staffers
raising hell at the Florida vote recount is the
one that makes my blood boil the most.
Every time I see it I think of how many Union
halls had members sitting and waiting for a call, any call, to action.
I can only wonder what may have been if pansy
Al Gore told a staffer to call down to the local Ironworkers,
IBEW or Fitters for a little counter balance.
Sometimes a royal ass kickin goes a long way.
God I hate being in the pussy party.
Yeah, thinking he knew what he was doing, Gore
called on all democrats to stay away.
That means every protestor in Florida was a Rethug
so the TV cameras showed "the public"
chanting for "sore loser Gore" to conceed.
How did a couple of fighters like us end
up in this party of quitters?
I actually think Letterman's joke was pretty funny.
Palin's pissed off because she knows that her
underage daughter got pregnant right under her nose.
Palin is a conservative 'abstinence only' idiot
whose daughter got knocked up at 16 - and then she
tried to turn the whole thing to her political
Letterman's joke did not, in my view, promote
underage sex or pregnancy, or suggest that it would be funny
if Palin's daughter got pregnant. It skewered
two famous people for their questionable morality and character.
If either of the Palin parents had taught their
daughter about birth control and had paid attention to what she
was doing instead of advancing their careers
and snowmobiling or whatever, there would be no joke.
Now, Sarah is making a big show of protecting
her daughter, but when Bristol was sixteen and having sex,
that protection was nowhere to be found.
I hated it when John Lennon retracted his "more
popular than Jesus" remark.
I hated it when the Rolling Stones changed the
words of "Let's spend the night together"
to satisfy the overweening
moralists of the Ed Sullivan Show.
I hated it when Bill Clinton said "I did not
have sexual relations with that woman."
I hated it when Phelps ate humble pie over his
I hate it everytime someone knuckles under to
self-righteous moral authority -- it was
someone who refused to knuckle under who put
an end to the McCarthy disgrace.
I hate it now that Letterman felt he needed to
apologize to Palin. He should have said
"Get off your moral high horse, the joke wasn't
aimed at your 14 year old daughter."
The world would be a better place if 10% more
people had 50% of your moral courage, Bart.
Johnny "Fuck the Pope" Rojo
God Bart, I don't get it.
I've always been a huge fan of Letterman, but
why did he take this lying down?
He made a joke about an adult girl, his writers
just got screwed up about which
ignorantly named girl was at the ballgame.
Why not have his writers scour other
comedy shows for quotes about the daughters that
Palin never protested?
And where was all this outrage from NOW and protests
in front of
Limbaugh's studios when Rush was calling Chelsea
Clinton a dog?
Kevin in Texas
Maybe Dave's confused about why the whole world caved in on him over
a dumb joke.
He's been telling dumb jokes for 30 years and suddenly everybody

How sad would it be for Palin to end Letterman's career?
Excerpt: Pope Benny the Rat deplored priests who were
unfaithful to their vows and called Thursday for a
"frank and complete acknowledgment" of the Catholic
Church's weakness in a letter to priests around the globe.
The letter was the first public statement from
Benedict since that Irish commission issued a report last month detailing
"endemic" molestation and rape at church-run
boys' facilities and ritualized beatings at girls' schools from the 1930s
until they got caught in the 1990s.
Benedict didn't specifically address the clerical
sex abuse scandal that has convulsed the church in the United States,
Ireland and elsewhere. But he was clearly referring
to the scandal in saying there had been 'situations which can never
be sufficiently deplored where the church herself
suffers as a consequence of infidelity on the part of some of her ministers.'
What a fraud this Pope is.
*I* am more Christ-like than he is.

Subject: Why are you obsessed
with Left vs. Right?
Man, some of the stuff on your site is good, but
why are you so hung up on the left vs. right paradigm?
It just doesn't make sense. If seeing Obama act
like the Dubya term 3 does not help you figure it,
then I guess your clueless or an operative.
I saw some comments you posted from Bill Maher
questioning what is up with Obama - good, good - but then
you dive right into the BS of how H. Clinton
may have governed from the left more. Get over it, there is no left
and right in politics. They just keep us arguing
with eachother about that stuff. The country is run by offshore bankers.
Bush started the bail outs and Obama has put the
program on steroids. Why are you not freaking out about the outright
looting of the nation by banks. Didn't Obama
promise no lobbyists? His entire cabinet are lobbyists and Wall Street
Where has all of the money gone? Why are we taking
over coporations and sestroying personal business - the GM fiasco
as example. Only those that are politically connected
get favors to keep their dealerships.
This is insane. And now upwards of 30,000 more
troops going into "war" and the introduction of "prolonged detention"
for Americans that the government does not have
enough evidence to even bring to trial!!!? This is your idea of change?
You have a good website to wake up people that
you may refer to as being on the "left."
How about we all join together to save the real

Excerpt: In the first episode, Joe Buck become the butt
of his own show's jokes.
Artie Lange "hijacked" Joe Buck Live, according
to the New York Whore Times.
When Buck announced that celebrity gossip site
TMZ was his favorite website, Lange shot back:
"Joe, TMZ is your favorite website?
What's your second, suckingcock.com?"
It was super-stupid for Buck to say that and Lange's
comment was off-color - but it was damn funny.
Lange's used to working in an atmosphere
of freedom - which once included HBO.
In a move decried as homophobic, (That's
an opinion, that's not accurate reporting.
I saw the tape - if you saw a more inclusive
tape than the one I saw, then say so.)
Lange then let his wrist fall limp, put on an
accent, and said,
"I'm on TMZ constantly, did you see what Angelina
was wearing today?" What the fuck, how about going to a sports website
for Christ's sake?"
Oh no! A comedian said something that somebody didn't
like? And how dare Lange suggest that Joe Buck concentrate
on sports instead of bullshit celebrity gossip?
Lange even admitted to being a homophobe, to which
Buck responded, "clearly."
Lange "admitted" that he was a homophope the way Jack Benny "admitted"
he was cheap.
F-ing Christ - am I the last sane man on the planet?
"As a Giants fan, and a well-known homophobic,"
Lange said, "it's like a white trash gift from god
that the fucking Cowboys have a quarterback whose
last name rhymes with homo."
I didn't see the live version but HBO censors
Artie Lange in their repeats - why?
I like Lange and I thought his remarks were funny.
I don't think Artie is really homophobic,
but he thinks "fag" is funny and his goal in
life is to let everyone know he's not gay.
I'm guessing it's a Brooklyn thing, like calling
They allowed Brett Favre to say "shit," but Artie
can't say the f-word?
Was HBO purchased by Pat Robertson or something?
And why ask Artie on the show if everyone has
to behave like there's nuns in the room?
Maybe Joe Buck should stick to safe comedians
...like Rich Little.
"I thought that spending time on a treadmill
felt long. That was like 8 or 9 minutes that turned
into an eternity. Do I think it went too far? Yes. Will
he be back? If it's up to me, no." Link
Joe Buck, guardian of middle-American virtue,
might be the most boring person in America.
Before Artie came on, the show was on a pace
to win an Emmy for "most boring show ever."
The show was so bad, Artie Lange saved it and
got people talking about it.
Hey Joe, better ban Chris Rock and Wanda Sykes.
They might say something that offends your virgin
And nobody is saying that the audience was laughing - they had a great
even if Mr Boring thought the comedy lasted for an eternity.
I watched the offensive show again last night.
Artie picked up a cigarette and Joe Buck had
a f-ing cow.
"Stop! You can't do that!"
...and Artie said (my words) "I'm
not going to f-ing light it. It's just for show"
My first ever memories of HBO include the movie
That movie included a very graphic man-on-man
I don't mean to differentiate a man-on-man-rape
scene with a "regular" rape scene,
but as a man, I have no other reference with
which to frame it.
Anyone remeber OZ?
HBO has no problem with man-on-man rape, but the smoking of cigarettes
will NOT be tolerated.
So my question is - why is man-on-rape rape more
acceptable than Artie Lange's language
or the smoking of a goddamn cigarette - and I'm
no friend to f-ing cigarettes - it makes no sense.
What does make sense is there's some anti-Stern
handjob at HBO who wants comedy suppressed.
Isn't that sad?
When HBO lables comedy unacceptable for
us to see?
HBO - We broadcast what Bush and Rove think
Last thing - somebody is lying.
Artie said Buck hugged him after the show ands said, "Great
job - thanks!"

I've never been addicted to cigarettes so I can't say
but sometimes I just feel like a lung-full of smoke, and I can get
that from pot.
If a lung cancer smoker craves a lung-full of smoke,
what's so wrong about a lung-full of smoke that will make him happier?
If there's a reason why pot is bad, why can't some body list it?
It can be useful, depending on role cigarettes

After that, the desire to smoke is a combination
of habit and atrophied stress management skills. Smoking a joint
of a cigarette is about the smallest adjustment
you could ask for. But it may weaken resolve - so I wouldn't recommend
for anyone who is quitting reluctantly. For
those people, I'd recommend mixing progressively smaller amounts of
into your pot until you're happy with none. Or
forget you like smoking, whichever comes first.
Bart, I stopped smoking cigarettes two months
ago, when the price went up yet again. I've smoked for a lot of years both
cigarettes and weed. The weed is getting me though
it so far. I put them down, (cigarettes) and haven't cheated
When I really want to smoke one I do, but its
not tobacco. It takes away the craving and makes you feel like you haven't
really given up everything. I smoke a little
more weed but I can afford it because I'm not paying for cigarettes.
When out in the world, I chew gum.
Bart, I quit smoking cigarettes in 1977 after
fifteen years of a pack a day habit. I continued to smoke pot however.
By smoking pot, I was able to quit cigarettes
cold-turkey. I finally had to quit smoking pot when I lost my job in a

Excerpt: There goes the theory about the truth being funny.
As we all remember, it was not an overgrown ball player

There is a fine line between a hockey slut and

From the first whiff of this story, I thought
Letterman should have kept quiet. Clearly this woman was just egging him
for a little airtime. Had he not responded to
her accusations, he would have deprived her the attention she so desperately
Instead, he lamely copped to her allegation.
You can almost pinpoint the exact moment where Lettermanís soul dies as
this absurd apology. Itís ugly to watch someone
who has made a career out of irreverence cow towing to a congenital idiot.
If anyone should be demanding an apology, itís
Letterman, who was slandered by the attention seeking governor when she darkly insinuated that Letterman
was some sort of child-diddling pedophile, a claim not at all based in
reality, unlike Lettermanís joke. Thatís
the sort of statement that spurs lawsuits, as it is rather damaging to
