going on over there. We can't meddle until we see what the outcome is." And we didn't meddle. And, of course, then
Ahmadinejad comes out and says, "You owe me an apology for meddling in our affairs." Obama: "I'm not going to
apologize. Why should I apologize to you, you little twerp?" In Honduras, though, we meddled. In Venezuela, we had a

Excerpt: The 2012 primaries are far away, but if they
were starting today Sarah Palin would enter with the
highest net approval ratings among self-described
Republicans, according to a recent Pew poll.
According to Pew, her GOP popularity, as measured
by her net approval-minus-disapproval ratings,
is +56, with Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich a
bit further back, at +39 and +33 respectively, and
Tom Michael Steele trailing far behind that trio
with a +14 and 58 percent of Republicans asking "Who?"
Romney is benefitting from a perception of a steady-as-he-goes
maturity and scandal - or blunder-free
eights months since the 2008 presidential election.
Wait - it could be that he has no testicles and thus no sex drive.
(I've heard rumors about Romney for years.)
Is this why Romney has no girlfriend or boyfriend?
"Who does a better job handling the threat
of terrorism - Obama or the Rethugs in Congress? Obama 55% - Republicans in Congress 34%."

"On health care, 51% of indys trust Obama,
and 26% trust GOPers in Congress. On the economy, 51% of indys trust Obama,
and 31% trust the GOP. On the budget deficit, 52% of indys trust
Obama, and 30% trust the GOP."
-- New Poll, Link
Obama seems to handle the Rethugs pretty well.
Now if he could just get his own party to stand with him...

Dereliction of duty is far more serious than lying.
If every politician that lied was impeached,
with whom would we be left?
Sanford should be removed from the very office
he abandoned during his sexual escapades
down south, not for the actions of the affair
or adultery, but for his leaving the post.
What would have happened if South Carolina
faced a state emergency during this time?
At best, Sanford is an adulterous hypocrite...
At worst, his disappearance is treason and betrayal
of his constituents.
Excerpt: Sarah can warm up the Republican base like a
hot toddy in a duck blind.
But further inside the party organization, the
air is a little nippy.
What happened? In a word, bungling.
Everyone seems to have a Sarah Palin story of
ignored calls, mishandled invitations
or unanswered e-mail. Disorganized is how one
might charitably describe the Palin operation.
“Basically, it’s just rude,” says one political
operative, who is a Palin fan. “They’ve been running
the great snub machine. That’s the reason the
boys in the Republican Party are unhappy with her."
Palin still can’t shoot straight. Unless something
changes dramatically and soon, “Missed Opportunity”
should be the title of her memoir.
Her popularity and fundraising ability are second only to Obama’s.
She was drowning in speaking requests. Boxes
and boxes of invitations stacked up — and went unprocessed.
Without any effort on her part, 80,000 fans around
the country organized pro-Palin groups. Said a frustrated
Palin promoter: “All she had to do for them was
hold an electronic town hall, and she couldn’t get around to it.”
Sarah's problem is the same as it was a year
ago. She isn’t ready.
I'm getting to like her more and more as the GOP's
best chance in 2012 (snort)
I wish she'd pick a fight with me like she did with Letterman.
Haven't had the pleasure of seeing the band, but
just watched "Kill Bill 2" - if you have a copy,
look at the "special features" for the band on
opening night - Rick DelCastillo is listed.
The band Del Castillo also appears on the album
"Once upon a time in Mexico"
(Robert Rodriguez composer) and Mexican Spaghetti
Western by Chingon (the band on KB2).
If you look for Robert Rodriguez, scratch the
surface a bit and you'll find Chingon and perhaps Del Castillo.
Sometimes the really good ones have two or three
incarnations to keep themselves busy - Rick Del Castillo
seems to be one of these.
Rick did the guitar parts for Antonio Banderas in "Mexico."
Maybe Antonio plays - just not that well :)
Also, I believe Del Castillo + Rodrigues = Chingon.
And go figure - Robert Rodriguez is no slouch

Hi Bart, just a quick reaction to this sentence
from the LA Times story posted at Bartcop:
"Al Sharpton was right to remind crowds that Jackson
and his family broke a color barrier
- the Jackson 5 were beloved by teenyboppers
of every race and, at his height, Jackson’s fan base was international."
Uh, that’s nonsense: Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Nat
King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Little Richard, Chuck Berry,
Fats Domino and others had broken the color barrier
before Jackson was even born, and they paid a much harsher
price for it than The Jackson Five ever did.
Those guys back then had to put up with segregation and abuse in many
parts of the country while Jackson was still
Also, a friend has an interesting theory I agree
with that the only reason for the over-the-top post-death Jacko media hype
was to beef up the sales of his CDs, videos,
etc. (After all, many of the same big media corporations that own the news
have a piece of Jackson in one way or another.)
If so, it’s worked — sales are soaring and, like
Elvis, he’ll probably earn more dead than alive.

But we have to give credit where it's due:
For some reason, MTV was all-white when Thriller
MJ's record label said,
"Play Billie Jean or we yank every video,"
so MTV caved.
I doubt they did it for racist reasons - maybe
MTV considered themselves a "rock" channel
but you must admit MJ insipired a couple of generations
with his music.
They say the last night of his life they ran thru the whole London show
for the first time - and filmed it. I'd buy a ticket to see that.
Excerpt: Mark Sanford admitted Tuesday that he saw his
Argentine mistress more times than previously disclosed,
including what was to be a farewell meeting in
New York chaperoned by a spiritual adviser soon after his wife
found out about the affair.
In an interview with the Whore AP, the governor
described five meetings with Maria Belen Chapur over the past year,
including two romantic, multi-night stays with
her in New York before they met there again intending to break up.
He said he met her two other times, including
their first meeting in 2001 at an open-air dance spot in Uruguay.
"There was some kind of connection from the very
beginning," he told The Whore AP, though he said
neither that meeting nor a 2004 coffee date in
New York during NaziCon 2004 were romantic.
Which means what? He left his Viagra at home?
Hey Gov, you're giving out a little TMI.
Nobody needs to know the days and times you banged her.
Nobody needs to know that you banged her on Trips 1 and 3, but not
Trips 2 and 4.
Did you write that? It seems unlikely, you
are usually very good with your facts.
But if you google "gun deaths in America", the
latest information says it's about 30,000 per year,
which is 5 times the number given in this post.
I'm a liberal but I also believe in a persons'

Can you help out a confused reader?

Excerpt: Even in a year of financial stress, Detroit carmakers
outpaced the industry in quality gains, says J.D. Power and Associates.
The initial quality of Chrysler, Ford and General
Motors 2009 brands increased 10% over 2008, beating the industry's 8%.
The initial quality study polls new car buyers
90 days after they've purchased their vehicles and asks them to grade their
cars on repair
problems — things that have broken — and design
issues — such as whether the radio is easy to use.
"Even in the face of unprecedented challenges,
the Detroit automakers are keeping their focus on designing and building
high-quality vehicles, which is a precondition
for long-term success," said David Sargent, VP of auto research at J.D.

When I read that, the first thought that came
to my mind was:
It didn't stop some religiously-insane prick like
W from stealing an election, and nobody knows,
how many people were crushed by him because they
were alleged terrorists.

Let's talk about what's possible.
It's possible that the Bush bastards were behind the scenes with
Ted Olson was a Paula Jones lawyer, remember?
It's possible that the Bush bastards planned the Iraq invasion
during Clinton's term and had
him impeached to make it so f-ing ugly that we'd never want to go thru
that kind of mess again.
It's possible that the Bush bastards could get away with that
because they ran/run the CIA and the
jackpot was controlling the entire world for eight years so they could
loot it dry - which they did.
I think they got lucky when Gore chose not to fight.
Or, maybe they had a good enough psychological profile on Gore (or
they read bartcop.com ) and
knew that the Democrats always refuse to fight, which led to
certain victory for W in 2000 and 2004.
When you're planning a multi-trillion dollar, worldwide eight-year robbery
spree with the help of
the taxpayer-financed CIA, there are very few things truly evil men
can't or won't do.
If 5,000 soldiers have to die for this robbery to work - that's OK with

Subject: Bixby corn
Bart, I probably saw you at Conrad Farms yesterday,
but we were all distracted by the Golden Goodness.
Moving back to Oklahoma was something I dreaded.
This is the state, after all, that considers the center-right Tulsa World
But now I'm eating fried chicken and Bixby corn.
Hell, even my country's soccer team looked good last week.
(BTW, being an American Soccer Fan is like being
an Oklahoma Democrat. Other countries who love the sport
hate our team because we're not a "real football"
nation, and we even get crap from people here who hate the sport.
Oklahoma Dems hear it from others in the country
for not being liberal enough, and locals loathe us for not giving in
to their vision of theocracy)
Are you telling us that if a cop entered your
house late at night to search it, you would shoot him?
Do you have the green light to kill government
agents simply because there are 300,000 other armed Americans?
If I'm in a hotel or somewhere besides my property,
I'll wait to see if the intruder has a gun and a badge.
If it's inside my home,
if Mrs Bart is behind me, anything taller than a cat is in real trouble.
Ahmadinejhad has followers as well as detractors.
Armed response to people in the street is not solely an
Iranian phenomenon. How many times have
we seen our own police tear gas, shoot and stomp protesting Americans?
As always, I was typing shorthand at 90 MPH.
What I meant was, if there were 20M gund in Iran, the government would
have to fear
one million people in the streets - figuring the angry ones would be
the ones armed.
That's why it's a phony charge to say, "Obama's
going to take your guns," because I'm sure there
are several million people in TX and OK and other states who would
say, "I'd like to see you try."
This is about the feds realizing up-front that they can't storm
10M or 20M homes.
Word would get out: "They're storming
homes on 55th St." So men with guns from
50th to 59th St would come to 55th St's aid and the feds would always
You can be for or against guns, but you can't deny that with 20M Iranian
sending 50 government goons into a crowd on motorcycles is a suicide
Excerpt: "What it looks like to me she’s trying to do
is try the same formula that got her the governorship," John Bitney says.
"You sort of start off with a conservative base.
The right-wing base is obviously out on the far end of the spectrum,
but it’s a very motivated base. They show
up, they’re committed. It gets you that political beachhead. She
get started with the blessing of the Republican
Party. She started with a dedicated corps of sort of right-wing true
believers who killed themselves for her, and
got her going. And then she began to build on that, and after she crossed
the primary hurdle, she moderated her message
on some points."
When I ask Bitney what he makes of the whole Palin
phenomenon, he sighs. "What do I take away from this?" he asks.
"Oh, I don’t know. I don’t know. It’s just a
lot of emotions and stuff. I find it’s frustrating dealing with Sarah,
seems we’re always dealing with emotional crap
and we never seem to be able to focus on the business at hand that needs
to be done. I don’t know whether
to blame her or pity her for all this emotional upheaval that we always
get from her.
Now we all get to listen to Levi and Bristol.
Check my feet for horseshoes if I have to sit there and listen to another
I got involved in helping her become governor

why I waved signs for her."
