"Here's the party that lost and the conservative movement that was discredited over
the last 8 years, setting the agenda for a Democratic
Party that controls the White House, the Senate and the
House. Something's wrong in that." -- Bill Moyers, Link
What's wrong is the Democrats have no Bartcop in them.
They're all-surrender all the time.

Like to write about beer? Professor Good Ales wants
"I suspect this will be an emotional day for
the senator's widow." -- the impossibly stupid
Wolf the Whore the afternoon of Ted's funeral,
Gee, Wolf, ya think?
CNN is the largest "news organization" in
and Wolf the Impossibly Stupid Idiot is
the best they can do?
it got worse...
At the burial, the Catholic DC Cardinal
(don't correct me) read a letter Teddy wrote
and asked Obama to personally deliver to
the Pope. (Today we're calling him the Pope.)
Sidebar: It was so weird - they were running behind
and it was getting dark.
The pool camera was forced to show other
visuals while the audio played.
So after he read Teddy's letter, after he
read the Pope's response, after the service was over.
Wolf Blitzer, who makes more gaffes in
15 minutes than I've made in a lifetime (and I drink a lot) said,
"John King, I guess it would be accurate to
say even after his death, we heard from Ted Kennedy today."
And then there was 15-20 seconds of ...dead
silence, ...as if John King was thinking,
"I don't care how much
CNN pays me - I can't work with this f-ing moron one more day." But no, John King is only slightly more
intelligent and only slightly less a whore the Blitzer.
The Worst Part: As a Democrat and a human being,
it was sad to watch the celebration of the passing of a man who gave so
I felt guilty lauighing at the CNN morons
who couldn't have behaved worse if they were farting altar boys at a
Anderson Cooper, who I only like when he's
being humiliated by Kathy Griffin, gave Wolf a run for his dumbass money.
I don't have any AC quotes for you, but
trust me, Ol' Bart on vodka has more dignity than Wolf and AC at
a damn funeral.
Plus, CNN kept talking about all of Teddy's
"flaws," how Teddy "gave up" being such a slug to eventually reach for
Candy Crowley (R-Butter Queen) told a story
about back in 1980, when Teddy ran against Jimmy Carter, which was a stupid
move guaranteed to fail. I wish
Ted had asked me my opinon before he decided to challenge HIS incumbent
Crowley said, "One
person in the crowd would say, "I love you, you're going to make a great
president," while the next would say, "You
that girl, you need to wirhdraw from this race and go home."
Thanks, Butter Queen, for making his lifetime
of service into an "either-or, maybe he's a murderous bastard"
Leave it to Crowley, who can't get hired
at FOX even tho she's qualified in every way but TV-looks, to constantly
viewers that Teddy was controversial ---
but it makes me wonder why they never play the same game for the Rethug
No, of course they didn't.
The whores at CNN have to keep pumping
that Reagan myth so the Bush bastards can steal more money.
Meanwhile, over at FOX News they were saying,
"Today, the flag flies at half-staff, there
no politics as we celebrate this man's life of service." (My words, but FOX and Chris Wallace seemed
to give a lot more respect to Teddy than whore CNN.)
Like Michael Jackson, it's entirely possible
Teddy was 100% innocent back in 1969.
Playing Devil's Advocate as far as the evidence
suggests, perhaps Ted had a tummy-ache and decided
to go easy on the alcohol at the
party that night.
Who's to say all bridges were well-lit and
clearly-marked back in 1969?
Who's to say Ted didn't hit his head in
the crash (steel dashboard, no air bags, no padded steering wheel) and
I'm so old, I remember when the presumption
of innocence was a right we had under the Constitution, but noooooooo.
My wild guess is the same as most people's
assumption - that he was too drunk to talk to the cops that night, but
if he'd had a cell phone (not yet invented)
and called the cops the second his feet found footing in the dark, murky
who believes the cops would've made it
there in time to save poor Mary Jo?
Rethugs have said for forty, long f-ing
years, "Why didn't he dive into the dark
ocean waters to save her?" I've never dived in the ocean at night.
I have no idea what that's like.
*I* don't know what happened that night
and Naomi Judd, who was in the car at the time, refuses to talk.
I'm just saying it's possible Teddy was
1000% innocent, except for making a driving mistake, but we'll never know.
The rethugs will always call him "that
f-ing murderer," while those of us who
depend on evidence will always wonder.
Excerpt: Predictably as always, the Republicans in Congress
and in the conservative media are berating Attorney General Eric Holder
for deciding to investigate the CIA’s use of
abusive interrogation methods on terror suspects.
They warn that probing this sensitive history
will compromise intelligence operations and endanger the nation. They insist
these techniques have, in the words of
Dick Cheney, saved thousands and perhaps hundreds of thousands of lives.
They suggest that the attorney general should
simply ignore the evidence of illegal conduct and "investigate the terrorists
as if the Justice Department cannot do both.
But as those politicians and pundits ought to
understand by now, the American system of justice was always meant to do
- that is, to apprehend and prosecute criminals,
and to ensure that those who apprehend them do not violate the law in doing
That system routinely investigates law enforcement
officials who use excessive force because we recognize that the credibility
and authority of the law depends on universal
As for the argument that we cannot protect our
security while upholding the law, that is an old canard that reappears
but not always, in the mouths of Republicans
- whenever intelligence abuses require investigation and possible prosecution.
Many of the same people, including Cheney, uttered
the same warnings back in the 1970s and ’80s, when Congress and
federal prosecutors probed lawbreaking by the
But those landmark investigations were followed
not by a diminishing of American security and power, but by the fall of
the Soviet Union. It is the past eight years,
when the Cheney outlook prevailed, that have seen a ruinous reduction in
prestige and influence - and perhaps our future
security, as well.
I’m in the middle of 157 and I must say that the
radio shows are much improved.
There’s much more political and media content,
and some very interesting observations.
I really enjoyed the segment about how the dying
faithful fight to hang on to their fading lives longer than the “clueless”
My mother was a life long Catholic until she walked
away in her middle age.
She fought cancer for years until she just said
“enough, no more treatments”.
On her death bed she was paid a visit from a priest
that was not requested. The visit was private and short.
My father wanted to know what was said, but my
mother was a ball buster to the end. After repeated pleas
for the information from my father my mother
looked at him with a straight face and said “he told me I was going to
Maybe I have a warped sense of humor, but I crack
up just thinking of that look on my father’s face.
I wondered how you felt about your last few shows.
Bill from CT
Bill, by the time a show is released I've heard it so many times I can't
That's why I appreciate the feedback - because I can't tell what works
and what doesn't.
When I read those comments about Ted Kennedy,
But then I remembered how happy I was when that
fascist, racist, murderous, misogynist Jesse
Helms woke up in hell beside Nixon and Reagan
and I thought, "OK, fair is fair." Paul in NC
But it's not the same.
Ted Kennedy was born super-rich and spent his whole life helping
the little guy get a bigger slice.
Helms and Reagan were racist bastards who got rich and powerful by
the poor and the helpless.
Keep on going and telling it like it is. Nil
And someday Reaganomics won't be the way the country
but the greed is good crowd hasn't sucked the
public teat dry yet,
so they are going all in for one more round before
that staggering cow dies.
The real market crash is coming, and shortly.
Keep the hammer flying,
But we just had a market crash.
Shirley we're not due for another one...:)
Excerpt: Muntadhar al-Zeidi, who threw two shoes at President
Bush is set to be released early due to good behavior while imprisoned:
He was initially sentenced to three years after
pleading not guilty to assaulting a foreign leader, then the court reduced
to one year because the journalist had no prior
Defense attorney Karim al-Shujairi said al-Zeidi
will now be released on Sept. 14, three months early.
"We have been informed officially about the court
decision," al-Shujairi told The Whore AP in a telephone interview.
"His release will be a victory for the free and
honorable Iraqi media."
Indeed, I think this can be considered a victory
for Iraqi journalists. The boneheaded traditional media in the United
could use some of that shoe-throwing spunk, actually
showing some passion for investigative journalism rather than just repeating
the talking points of the Bush bastards.
I'm not saying anyone should be throwing shoes at politicians, but it would
be nice for
journalists to sometimes reflect the general
mood of the populace as al-Zeidi did when he shouted:
"This is your farewell kiss, you dog! This
is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq."
Excerpt: Imagine how difficult it would be for an outsider
to install explosives on about every third floor
on these well secured buildings. In contrast
we note that it might not have been a very difficult task
for an insider, as Marvin Bush, brother
of George Bush, had earlier been a director of Securacom,
the company in charge of security.
I'm no expert on the 9/11 conspiracy.
It's a little like Israel - it's so complicated and it would take years
to get up-to-speed, but if a
Bush bastard was in the mix you can bet there's a global conspiracy
to commit crimes and make
a profit and they don't care how many thousands of innoccent people
are killed in the process.
I sent my Dad a link from your site.
It was the youtube video about cutting out all
the socialistic programs we now enjoy, i.e. clean water, firemen, policemen,
His response is below. He is very conservative,
in poor health, and from Texas. Typical, right?
I want him to understand that HCR is beneficial
to all. Any advice on how to answer?
"One such person who gave us information was
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed...And I am told that we have captured Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the professionals
believe he has information necessary to secure the country. So I ask what tools are available
for us to find information from him and they gave me a list of tools, and I said are these tools deemed to
be legal? And so we got legal opinions before any decision was made."

torture crimes against humanity, Link
I wish someone would crush Rush's nuts with
a shop vise while he is "on the air".
I'm surprised someone hasn't done this already
to the nasty sweat hog.
Do we not have a deranged person on our team?
This is sooo unfair.
I thought of that during Teddy's funeral, how all the psychos are on
JFK, Bobby and Martin were all murdered by right-wing handjobs.
Nobody murders a Republican because all the violent crazies play for
"Harry Reid's only problem is that he is a
Democrat, which is another way of saying, "coward." Don't forget that this mealy-mouthed, spineless, wimp is the
supposed "leader" of senate Democrats...All hail Harry "The Jelly-Spine"
Reid!" Democrats deserve to have their hats
handed to them in 2010. America today: Your choice is between a party of
lunatics or a party of cowards." -- Taylor Doose,
Excerpt: What is at stake in the debate over health care
is more than the mere crafting of policy.
The issue is now the identity of the Democratic
By now we know that Democrats can bail out traditional
Republican constituencies like Wall Street,
but can they enact a convincing version of their
own signature issue, health-care reform?
At this point, it's fair to ask whether Democrats
remember why health care is their issue in the first place.
As health-care debates always have done, this
one has pushed to the fore all the big questions about the
rightful role of government, and too many Democrats
have sought to avoid them with mushy appeals to
consensus and bipartisanship. The war is on and
if Democrats want to win they need to start fighting.
Excerpt: Suddenly the disgraced and demoralized Republican
Congress has an unearned future, thanks to the superhuman clumsiness
of a man who has made himself indispensable to
the Obama administration and insufferable to the Democratic Congress,
chief of staff Rahm Emanuel.
The GOP always knew that Emanuel was a problem
that could not be solved and could only be endured while he served
three tempestuous terms in the House. But now
the beleaguered Democratic majority is learning painfully that Emanuel's
for bullying, whimsical favoritism, cheerful
power-grabbing, and self-congratulatory earthiness have transformed the
days of the Obama administration's seamless accomplishment
into a second hundred days of blame and gloom.
First, Emanuel used frontman Senator Max Baucus
(D-Mont.), the Finance Committee chair, to ditch the health-care public
while sending Obama to speak softly at dinner
at the home of that prick Charles Grassley (R-Grant Wood). The latest Emanuel
co-authored ploy--forcing health-care legislation
through in the fall with Democratic-only votes--underlines that the White
has become deaf, daring, and driven. 'We suck,'
a blunt Republican partisan reports, 'but they suck more right now.'"
When will Obama grab health care by the horms
and get something going?
To celebrate the 14th anniversary of our first
date, my wife and I went to Downstream Casino in Quapaw, Oklahoma
to see Kenny Rogers. Kenny was doing a
bit where he threw $10 bills at some guy in the front row for each hit
the guy recognized (he joked he would PAY the
guy to become a fan). Near the end of the show Kenny asked the fellow
how much money the guy had collected. The
man said $70 and this seemed low to Kenny. Mr. Rogers pointed and
"You missed some over here... but I guess that
belongs to Obama".
At this point the audience roared with laughter
and there were hoots from the audience.
Kenny Rogers then said "no, no, now....I LIKE
the guy". Suddenly the audience turned and boos erupted.
Bart, directly around us were chain smokers drinking
beer and most were overweight. They looked like they might
have trouble making the rent this month.
These people booing were the EXACT people that need a public option.
I hope we can save them from their own ignorance.
You just KNOW that if we get true health care reform
they'll be holding signs 20 years from now screaming
"Get your government hands off my public option".
-Tony in Fayetteville
I hope the dems wouldn't legitimize her by trying
to debate her. Obama shouldn't stoop so low.
Why doesn't he debate someone in the repugnant
party who has some knowledge of legislation
- one of the old time Senators who are busy flapping
their jaws about knowing what WON'T work.
Palin changed the health care debate and she's got a shot at being president
because this idiot country has a habit of voting for the dumbest load
on the ballot.
"For every idiot that keeps screaming “Chappaquiddick”
in their cartoons, I have two words for you - Laura Bush." -- Marmel,

affected the families and was very painful for all involved, including the community at large. To
this day, Pickles remains unable to talk about it.''

her boyfriend in the other car, Link
Excerpt: PBS's Bill Moyers issued a tough critique of
the Democratic Party on Friday night on HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher."
Moyers, talking health care, said that "too many
Democrats have had their spines surgically removed."...
The problem is the Democratic Party," said Moyers.
"This is a party that has told its progressives - who are the most outspoken
champions of health care reform - to sit down
and shut up. That's what Rahm Emanuel, in effect, the chief of staff of
the White House,
told progressives when they stood up as a unit
in Congress and said, no public insurance option, no health care reforms."
Moyers said that, over the years, the Democratic
Party "has become like the Republican party - deeply influenced by
'I think Rahm Emanuel, who is a clever politician,
understands that the money for Obama's reelection would come primarily
from the health industry, the drug industry and
Wall Street, and so he is a corporate Democrat who is destined, determined
that there would be something in this legislation
- if we get it - that will turn off those powerful interests.'
Maybe he wouldn’t be in trouble if he had paid
taxes on the million dollars he won on Survivor.
Apparently, he thought no one would notice he
won, so he didn’t pay. (also, he sexually harassed
a woman on national TV. The guy’s a scumbag.
If his home confinement included getting permission
from the Bureau of Prisons to have interviews,
perhaps he should’ve.)

Subject: Blue Dogsh*t Democrats
What we need to do is get it out there, and let
it be known exactly who those Blue Dogsh*t Democrats are
so that they are voted out of office next year.
I've compiled a list. Please post this on your website and get
the word out as much as you can. No matter
how much the health industry gives money to Dogsh*t democrats,
they can always be voted out by enough voters.
True democrats will be angry knowing those dogsh*ts are
behaving exactly like repulicans (a.k.a republic*nts)
and will likely vote them out. Also, those dogsh*ts need
to know that the word is out on what they are
doing...let's get them scared.
I've been sending the list to other organizations,
Here are the dogsh*ts against public option health
care as well as a link showing
which democrats accepted lobby money and how
much from the health industry:
