Excerpt: Last week at a town meeting, Republican Congresswoman
Lynn Jenkins called for a "great white hope" to emerge from
the Republican Party to defeat Barack Obama's
agenda. Let this sink in: in front of a small crowd of rabid supporters,
already in full froth about "death panels," she
called for a "great white hope."
Her examples of "great white hopes" were congressmen
like Eric Cantor and Steve Ryan, both of whom are white.
Later, her spokesperson Mary Geiger may have
made it worse by saying, "There may be some misunderstanding there
when she talked about the great white hope. What
she meant by it is they have a bright future. They're bright lights within
the party." Yes, white is "bright" while Obama
brings the "darkness."
Team Obama, per their usual posture on the nuts
of August, refused to stand up to this racist idiocy.
His spokesperson Bill Burton said, "We obviously
give Congressman Jenkins the benefit of the doubt." This has become Obama's M.O.: take a right hook
to the face and just smile through your bloodied teeth.
Is Obama going to stand there for the next 40 months and take it without
Is Obama going to "nice guy" his way to being the second worst president
When will he learn that "nice" doesn't work against rabid dogs?
Remember how during President Bush's time in the
White House, any time former President Clinton or VP Gore
said anything negative about the occupant, Republicans
would all went their panties about how it was supposed
protocol for the former President and VP to STFU.
Well, fast forward to today and Darth Cheney has
diarrhea of the mouth when it comes to slamming President Obama
and staff. Funny how you don't hear from
those Republicans anymore, eh? I guess IOKIYAR (It's OK, if you're

Excerpt: I got an e-mail from a prominent Republican asking
why I am so anti-Republican these days.
Since many of my friends ask the same thing I
thought I would share my reply:
I think the party got seriously on the wrong track
during the George W. Bush years, as I explained in my Impostor book.
In my opinion, it no longer bears any resemblance
to the party of Ronald Reagan. I still consider myself to be a Reaganite.
But I donít see any others anywhere in the GOP
these days, which is why I consider myself to be an independent.
Mindless partisanship has replaced principled
conservatism. What passes for principle in the party these days is
"what can we do to screw the Democrats today."
How else can you explain things like that insane op-ed
Michael Steele had in the Washington Post on
I am not alone. When I talk to old timers from
the Reagan years, many express the same concerns I have.
Excerpt: Retrospectives on Ted Kennedyís life mention
his regret that he didnít accept Nixonís offer of a bipartisan health
The moral some commentators take from that regret
is that todayís health care reformers should do what Mr. Kennedy balked
at doing back then, and reach out to the other
But itís a bad analogy, because todayís political
scene is nothing like that of the early 1970s.
In fact, surveying current politics, I find myself
missing Richard Nixon.
No, I havenít lost my mind. Nixon was surely the
worst person other than Dick Cheney ever to control the executive branch.
But the Nixon era was a time in which leading
figures in both parties were capable of speaking rationally about policy,
and in which policy decisions werenít as warped
by corporate cash as they are now. America is a better country in many
than it was 35 years ago, but our political systemís
ability to deal with real problems has been degraded to such an extent
I sometimes wonder whether the country is still

Excerpt: If the Bush administration's policies really
did keep us safe for 7½ years, then it stands to reason that the
may be endangering us now. Certainly that is
how the public would see it in the event of another terrorist attack.
If that happens, heaven forbid, Obama will be
seen to have failed in the most basic presidential duty, and the Bush administration
will be vindicated. As inconceivable as it may
seem today, the 2012 election may end up turning on national security.
would be wise to nominate someone with both toughness
and experience. Under such circumstances, it's hard to think of a better
candidate than Dick Cheney.
for the liberal virus by that piece of shit Pat Boone
Excerpt: As I remember it, the medical research world
feels there's some virus that infects otherwise healthy cells, and chemically
or corrupts their DNA. Those cells go on living
in the organ, and reproducing Ė but now controlled by a different blueprint.
They have become outlaws, renegades and as they
grow they disrupt the functions of the organ, contaminate and ruin it;
and they can eventually spread through the body,
using the bloodstream, and cause death.
There's something fearfully like that going on
in our body politic. A deadly virus has been loosed throughout our system,
and wherever it takes root, it changes the functions
and the structure that gave us the grandest, strongest, freest system
of government.the world has ever known.
First, Teddy claimed he had dived back into the
water, but couldn't find the car -- not really surprising considering how
dark it was.
But the coroner claimed that Mary Jo Kopechne
lived about two hours after the crash; if police divers had gotten there
in that time,
they might have been able to save her (the diver
who eventually recovered the body wasn't too sure -- he said that if he
able to get to the girl in 25 minutes, like
he did when the sun was up, he might have been able to save her).
The big problem about Chappaquiddick was not the
crash itself--Teddy was trying to give a couple campaign workers a ride
girls who might have had a problem getting home
otherwise--but that Teddy didn't go to the police until after they found
Mary Jo's body
(and then he went immediately). The circumstances
tended to exonerate him, which is why he got only a two-month sentence,
which was suspended. He had concussion
and shock -- to see how that affects you, watch two episodes of House:
and "Wilson's Heart." In these, House gets
a concussion, and it takes finding blood on his head to make him realize
It takes days for Dr. House to recover enough
to remember who was in the bus with him.
If a TV doctor takes that long, how long will
it take a politician?
Russ, thanks for that.
That might be the only Chappaquiddick defense I've ever read.

"I guess the other thing that offends the hell

"After John Wilkes Booth, there were no other
successful assassinations of President Lincoln." -- Lincoln's Secret
"Cheney thinks it was a sterling success when
it came to national security and counter-terrorism. Perhaps there's something to this. After all,
except for the catastrophic events of 9/11, and the anthrax attacks against Americans, and terrorist attacks against
U.S. allies, and the terrorist attacks against U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Bush's inability to capture
those responsible for 9/11, and waging an unnecessary war that inspired more terrorists, and the success
terrorists had in exploiting Bush's international unpopularity, the Bush/Cheney record on counter-terrorism was
awesome. After the previous administration established a record like that, President Obama didn't ask Cheney
for tips? The nerve." -- Steve Benen,
"Bush and Cheney sent thousands of America's

If you said, "Oklahoma is full of racist handjobs,"
agree with you.
I grew up in St Louis, so I had reason to hate the Cowboys long before
(the thug who raped the woman in the wheelchair) wiped his shoes on
the Cardinals pennant.
I went to school in Fayettenam so I had reason to hate the Longhorns.
Then I moved to Oklahoma where we chow down on Longhorn beef most years.
But you know who I really blame? The whore announcers.
Even when Dallas is losing 35-0, the asshole announcers still
