Why we love Abu Ghraib torture
 An Editorial in the Wash Whore Post


The Washington Post Editorial Page -- keeper of all establishment Washington wisdom -- today advocates 
that low-level CIA interrogators who went beyond John Yoo's torture guidelines, and only them, be criminally
investigated and prosecuted by the Justice Department:

We reject the distorted interpretations that underpin the OLC memos and that serve as legal justification
for harsh interrogation techniques that either border on or constitute torture. But those who relied on the 
memos and shaped their behavior in the good-faith belief that they were following the law should not be 
subject to prosecution.

That, in a nutshell, is the twisted Washington mentality when it comes to lawbreaking:  when political crimes become 
so blatant and extreme that they can no longer be safely excused (Watergate, Iran-contra, Abu Ghraib), then it's 
necessary to sacrifice some underlings who carried out the crimes by prosecuting them, but -- no matter what 
else happens -- the high-level political officials responsible for the crimes must be shielded from all accountability.

Obama, the Great Wealth Creator?
 by Robert Parry


In early March, as the Dow sank to about 6,500, CNBC stock analyst Jim Cramer blamed Obama for
“the greatest wealth destruction” ever, citing declines in “all indices, since the inauguration of the President,”
an attack theme that resonated across the right-wing and much of the mainstream U.S. news media.

The numbers were hard to refute. When Obama became President a little over one month earlier, the Dow was
at about 8,000, meaning Obama had presided over a decline of nearly 20 percent. But Cramer’s analysis was
unfair and – from the perspective of only four months later – clearly wrong.

Indeed, if one wanted to label Obama a “great wealth destroyer” for the stock market slide early in his presidency,
it would only seem fair to call him now a “great wealth creator,” because the Dow passed the 9,000 mark last week,
representing almost a 40 percent rise from the March lows.

Marine and wife's brutal murder


Terrorized and tortured, allegedly by four fellow Marines, Sgt. Jan Pawel Pietrzak and his wife
were on their knees in their ransacked home when one intruder handed a loaded gun to another.

"Do them," Lance Cpl. Tyrone Miller told Pvt. Emrys John, a former Marine testified Wednesday.

"They had them kneel over the couch and they placed a seat cushion over his head and shot him,"
22-year-old Justin Weissinger told the court. "They shot his wife in the same manner, twice."

Weissinger, who was kicked out of the service in February for flunking a drug test, said Miller
gave him that account and even boasted about how they sexually assaulted Pietrzak's wife, Quiana.
A homicide investigator said the Marines spray-painted racist remarks in the home.

When they lowered the standards for military recruits, why did they 
go all the way down to white supremists with criminal records?

I never heard of this case until today and I ran into it by accident.
I assume it's because the wife was Black and we all know Black doesn't sell as well as white.
If she was a blonde white girl, Larry King might stop talking about Michael Jackson.

       "Dat's right!"

We live in a crazy, fucked-up world.

What if we got the news without any mention of race?
What if Sgt. Crowley was Black and arrested a white Harvard professor?

Would Obama have said the Black officer "acted stupidly?"

Subject: Gates and over reaction

While I think Gates and the cop over reacted, you don't arrest someone
for "disorderly conduct" when they are in their own home.
This is just further evidence Amerika is becoming a police state.
 Jon in Ohio

Subject: Gates and over reaction

Bart, I agree that the Gates incident was a case of over-reaction. But one man in the incident just got back
from one of the longest flights you can take, and was being accused of robbing his own home.

I think his over reaction was completely understandable.
I'm so old I remember when police were judged by how well they could DE-escalate a situation.
The charge of 'disorderly conduct' is a blank check for bullies with badges to arrest civilians.
Republicans continue to prove their hypocrisy. They make excuses for nutjob David Koresh,
but when a black man is involved they are on the side of the police!

Wish I had money to contribute. I'm a long time (1999 I think) fan.
I hope to be able to contribute/subscribe again in the future.
Thanks for all you've done.

Our problem is we don't know whose version is closest to the truth.

On a Plane Ride Home From Paris
 by John Tully


Schmuck David Brooks, perpetual mealy-mouthed defender of the Bush administration throwing out his shoulder
shrugging off the incident at Haditha in front of two shocked Marines: Mark Shields and Jim Lehrer.

Remember when columnist Tony Blankley said the war protests were organized by the communist party and
the Press corps labeled Al Gore as Crazy for his pre-war criticism about invading Iraq.

How about when war hero Max Cleland was derisively compared to both Osama and Saddam in a TV ad
by his republican opponent, Saxby Chambliss during their Senate race? Mr. Cleland lost his legs and an arm
during Vietnam but the republican claimed the democrat was soft on National Security.

Chambliss sat out the war with a bad knee.

Subject: Blue Dog Dems

Bart, Bob Somerby recently pointed out that even though the Democrats have a 60-40 majority,
it is not at all like the former Republican majority.  In the last presidential election McCain won
something like 30 states, most having few electors.  But many of the Democratic senators come
from those states, so they must be pretty far right to have been elected from those states.

That doesn’t change simply because they can, for the next year and five months, run roughshod
over the Republican faction.  Bush’s Senatorial majority was solid; Obama’s isn’t and may not ever be.

US politics will for the foreseeable future, inflict blue dogs on us.   It’s time for the art of politics
to rear its head.   The blue dogs have to have something to take home that makes sense to the
myriad independent businessmen (farmers) that are their constituencies.

What does Tequila Boy do with that paradigm?
Your ideas usually seem spot on; this one’s tough.

Those farmers should be demanding the health care mess gets cleaned up.

The current system is broke and the GOP is demanding we not fix it because
the super-rich don't want to pay for fellow Americans health care.

It's the same is taxes - ther super-rich are tired of being asked to pay more,
but how many people are super-rich?  Why is that tiny minority calling the shots?

The majority, the poor, refuse to vote themselves a raise - why?

Subject: Blue Dog Dems

The confusion over Blue Dogs continues.  Back in 1994, the year before the "Blue Dog Coalition" was formed,
I said that President Clinton had essentially created a new party covering the center, with traditional Democrats
on the left and traditional Republicans on the right.  (I threw the "Christian Right" into a minority status party,
similar to the Orthodox religious party in Israel -- to my surprise the "Christian Right" now is the Republican party).

This "new party" was supposed to be the "New Democrats," who want to "fix and revitalize" the Democratic Party from,
as the Democratic Leadership Council describes it, the "cutting edge of the vital center."  Bill and Hillary Clinton both fall
into this category.  The Blue Dogs, however, supported bipartisanship (in some ways like Barack Obama).
That gave them a lot of power under Bush, and got several new Blue Dogs elected.

Basically, the Blue Dogs are the party the Republicans should be, with traditional and "new" Democrats being the more
progressive party.  Indeed, if the Republicans were to drop their infatuation with the extreme right and follow what they
claim to stand for, most of the Blue Dogs could easily change their voter registration.  Well, except for one thing--something
you've commented on--the fact that the strength of the Republican party is their ability to keep their members on message.
All Republicans will vote the way they are told; they don't permit individual thought.

So, basically, Blue Dogs are the core of the "real" Republican party, the ones that are willing to think for themselves.
That makes them an opposition party for President Obama; he needs to remember that they are the ones he should
consider bipartisanship with, not the Republicans.

So Fitting to See Palin Quitting
 by Mike Lupica


Sarah Palin quit Sunday night, talking about leadership as she did. She clearly imagines herself as our next president,
getting to tell guys like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad where to get off, yet leaves whining about a bad joke from David Letterman.
You rarely get political farewells this funny outside of New Jersey.

Palin doesn’t actually leave the stage now, just goes off at intermission to write a book and get a TV gig on FOX News.
Once there, she'll try to find a way to drive Newt Gingrich, another presidential pretender, right through the boards.

Sarah Palin hadn’t even served two full years as governor when a desperate John McCain, picked her out of the chorus.
She effectively stopped being Alaska’s governor that day. When she quit this weekend, it was just bookkeeping.

Mike Malloy Live

Inhofe: Kill Health care, make huge gains


Appearing on Janet Parshall’s radio show yesterday, Senator Inhofe (R-Pissquik) argued that the defeat of Clinton’s
health care reform “started the demise of Bill Clinton that led to the 1994 Republican takeover of the House and the Senate.”
He then added that he is now “tracking the demise” of Obama’s health care plans and it is making him “optimistic”:

He's right about that.
The idiot/cowardly Democrats caved in and stabbed Clinton in the back.

The Democrats agreed that Clionton was a crazy man doing crazy things and they convinced
voters that he needed to be kept in check and who could do that better than the Rethugs?

INHOFE: They ought to know, they ought to know from history. This is a losing proposition for them.
And for those out there who believe, that would like to have something optimistic to look at, we are plotting
the demise on a week by week basis of where Bill Clinton was in 1993 and where Obama is today and his
demise ratio is greater than Clinton’s was in 1993. So, he’s trying to do the same things, except more extreme

Why can't our idiot/cowardly Democrats shove this down the GOP's throats?
They're fucking BRAGGING about killing health care - that should be suicide for them
but it's only suicide if our idiot/cowardly Democrats call them on it.

Subject: the death of professionalism?

While the article is spot on, the headline is not. Professionalism in journalism died long ago.

My belief is that it died in the 1980's when we had the Alzheimer's president.
They called him, among other things, the Teflon president because nothing bad stuck to him.
Of course that's the exact time the right wing corporate media took over and fawned at his every word.

Perhaps Gene was saying Cronkite was journalism and now that he's gone,
we've got nothing but Fascist dogs and teleprompter monkeys..

Subject: Liberals don't understand how conservatives think

Liberals don't understand how conservatives think.
Conservatives believe that big government is bad.

So conservatives run for office to prove that government doesn't work.
And they succeed in making their point by being a failure in office.
For Republicans, failure is the new success. The more they fail the more they succeed.

It's just like Sarah Palin proving she's not a quitter by quitting.
By not being a lame duck she's taking 4 years of failure and accomplishing it 19 months sooner. 
She's showing that she ready to be President because can create
the kind of failure in 5 years that took Bush 8 years to accomplish.

Those liberal intellectual elitists, they just don't get it.

Tiger Woo   needs to clean up his act

                        "Goddamn, f-ing lame-ass f-ing putter!!!"


Tiger Woods has outgrown those Urkel glasses he had as a kid. 
Outgrown the crazy hair. Outgrown a body that was mostly neck.

When will he outgrow his temper?

The man is 33 years old, married, the father of two. 
He is paid nearly $100 million a year to smile for the cameras. 
He is the world's most famous and beloved athlete.

And yet he spent most of his two days at Turnberry last week doing the Turn and Bury. 
He'd hit a bad shot, turn and bury his club into the ground in a fit. 
It was two days of Tiger Tantrums -- slamming his club, throwing his club 
and cursing his club. In front of a worldwide audience.

A whole lot of that worldwide audience is kids. 
They do what Tiger does.
