on my inner thigh the whole time.

And, of course, he won't say who that senator was because it's

the weirdo Rethugs.

Excerpt: "If this were the democracy that the Founding
Fathers thought they were creating, word from CIA Director
Leon Panetta that his agency had lied to Congress
and specifically that it had lied repeatedly from 9-11 through
the end of 2008 concerning an as-yet undisclosed
secret program, would have virtually every member of Congress
in a state of rebellion, demanding answers.
After all, the CIA is required by law to report
to at least the majority and minority leaders of the House and
Senate Intelligence Committees and to the majority
and minority leaders of both houses of Congress about such things.
But not only did the spy agency not report on
what it was up to; it lied about what it was up to.
is everyone making such a big deal out of nothing?"
"There’s this big piece in the Wall Street
Journal this morning that says that it was a number of different concepts for ways that we could
capture or kill al Qaeda leaders in the days after 9/11. I am really surprised that the Democrats decide
that that’s what they want to fight over. If they want to go to the American people and say that
they disagree with the notion that we ought to be capturing and killing al Qaeda leaders, I think it’s
just going to prove to the American people one more time why they can’t trust the Democrats with our

Reminder: Under Clinton, we had eight years of peace and prosperity.
Under Bush, we had eight years of hell, bankruptcy and death.
Your side was so pathetic - you lost to a Black guy with little experience.
Excerpt: Court societies invariably expend amazing amounts
of time and energy squabbling over arcane matters of order and degree.
Decaying aristocracies become obsessed with hierarchical
minutiae: who outranks whom, and for precisely which reasons?
So it is among the lords and ladies of Washington's
beleaguered press corps. Preoccupied with status issues in the best of
many appear to find today's economic turmoil
doubly unnerving. Will metropolitan newspapers survive in anything resembling
their present form? If not, who will populate
the capital's fashionable drawing rooms? Have they made their way into
antechamber to find peasants in muddy boots putting
their feet on the furniture?...
Meanwhile, what makes Milbank scream? A breach
in decorum: a commoner treated as a member of the Beltway peerage.
During President Obama's recent press conference,
he invited a question from one Nico Pitney, a blogger with Huffington Post,
a liberal-leaning Web site. Somebody at the White
House had noticed that Pitney was in regular contact with Iranian protesters...
Milbank was nevertheless infuriated. A mere blogger
had been recognized at court. In a column that neglected to quote
Pitney's question or Obama's answer, he railed
at the impropriety: "Reporters looked at one another in amazement at the
stagecraft they were witnessing ... The use of
planted questioners is a no-no at presidential news conferences, because
sends a message to the world -- Iran included
-- that the American press isn't as free as advertised. But yesterday wasn't
so much a news conference as it was a taping
of a new daytime drama, 'The Obama Show.'
Did Milbank have a problem when Bush called on
a male prostitute for a planted, kiss-ass question?.
Excerpt: The Obama Doctrine is finally coming into focus.
It’s been hard to glean its form because for so
long it seemed the president’s most obvious guiding principle was “not

so much you can't stand living here.
...particularly when it came to the Iraq War.
Indeed, his anti-Bush stance has led him to stubbornly refuse to say the
has been won or to admit that he was wrong to
oppose the surge. In the past, this unthinking reflex has caused Obama
take some truly repugnant positions. In July
2007, Obama said that he would order U.S. forces out of Iraq as quickly
possible, even if he knew it would lead to an
Iraqi genocide. This makes Obama the first president in modern memory to
have suggested that causing a genocide would
be in America’s national interest."
Yeah, that's right - blame Obama for Bush's quagmire in Iraq.
Why don't you push Jeb for 2012 if you love the Bush bastards so much?

Liz, don't worry.

Excerpt: Palin's surprise resignation, amid negative press
coverage in Vanity Fair and elsewhere, suddenly revived dormant feuding
among campaign operatives and conservative media
figures -- notably between Steve Schmidt, the former campaign manager,
and Bill Kristol, the Weekly Standard editor
and Fox News commentator.
In ordinary circumstances, all their bitchy backbiting,
spinning and fabricating would be of little interest except as comic
entertainment for political junkies. Who first
called Palin a 'diva'? Who insinuated that she might suffer from postpartum
depression? Who searched computer files to find
out which staffer was leaking these bilious tidbits to the press?
And who cares now, eight months later, except
for these losers?
Plainly there is no reason why anyone should care,
except for one small nagging concern. It is worth remembering that these
are the same people who chose Palin, a manifestly
unqualified and incompetent politician unable to string together a series
coherent sentences, as the potential presidential
successor to a 72-year-old cancer survivor. So it would be refreshing and
salubrious to see the perpetrators of that contemptuous
and cynical tactic held accountable for endangering the country.
McCain was an old, unstable man and a cancer survivor.
The odds of Palin taking over for him were as high as 50-50.
How dare McCain endanger this country with his foolish gamble.
Why are people questioning you and others who
tell the truth about Palin?
She deserves every critique she gets.
SHE is the person who drags her family out in
front of everyone at every chance
she is in front of a camera. She is one who speaks
without making any form of sense.
She called the media out to interview her Tuesday
while she “fished” with her “family business”.
In full makeup no less. This after blasting the
media because they will not leave her alone!
She has an addiction to the spotlight and will
do anything to stay in it.
Keep hammering away,
BobbyLee in Iowa
When Sarah Palin pushed her family into the spotlight,
they became targets as did she.
When any comedian can take your words as a politican
and repeat them verbatim and get laughs,
you may want to either rethink what you are going
to say, or, get in another line of work.
Palin's idea that she had foreign policy experience
because she could see Russia from Alaska
is also a total fabrication. If you stand on
the West side of a small uninhabited island off the
coast of Alaska, you can see a large, uninhabited
island off the coast of Russia.
As for seeing Russian bombers, this is also total
BS. Having seen many B-52 strikes in Vietnam,
I can tell you this, you do not see the bombers,
just the dust from the bombs going off.
She knew or should have known she was not ready
for the major leagues, but she went anyway.
She wanted the glory, and this is the price that
HAS to be paid for that glory.
Keep swinging the hammer.
She got a million dollar book deal by putting America at risk.
