Excerpt: These birther handjob protesters do not look
to politicians for leadership. They look to niche media figures like Rush
and Glenn Beck
and their scores of clones behind local and national
microphones. Because these figures have no responsibilities, they cannot
Their sneers may be false and hateful -- they
all routinely liken the President and the "Democrat Party" to murderous
totalitarians -- but they
are employed by large, nominally respectable
corporations and supported by national advertisers, lending them a considerable
institutional prestige. The dominant wing of
the Republican Party is increasingly an appendage of the organism -- the
tail, you might say,
though it seems to wag more often from fear than
from happiness. Many Republican officeholders, even some reputed moderates
Senator Chuck Grassley, of Iowa, have obediently
echoed the foul nonsense.
Excerpt: "The president does not think (the birther
handjob movement) is based on the color of his skin," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters.
Well sure, that explains why they hated Clinton, too, but did the anti-Clnton
handjobs take to the streets?
No, this is a special kind of hate: "Them
niggers just stole America and we decent white folk gotta steal it back ...and if a price has to be
paid, I know God is on the I-hate-them-niggers side."
Excerpt: Only one in four Oklahoma public high school
students can name the first President of the United States, according to
a survey released today.
The survey was commissioned by the Oklahoma
Council of Public Affairs in observance of Constitution Day on Thursday.
"They're questions taken from the actual exam
that you have to take to become a U.S. citizen," Dutcher said.
One thousand students were given 10 questions
drawn from the Idiot File.
You must answer six questions correctly in order
to reach "dumbass" status.
About 92 percent of the people who take the citizenship
test pass on their first try. However, Oklahoma students
did not fare as well. Only about 3 percent
of the students surveyed would have passed the citizenship test.
Dutcher said this is not just a problem in Oklahoma.
He said Arizona had similar results, which left
him concerned for the entire country.
"It points to a real serious problem. We're not
going to remain ignorant and free," Dutcher said.
Of course they'll remain ignorant because Okies are PROUD of their ignorance.
Bush, Palin and Beck taught us you can make it to the top by being

Easy. Money. Train wrecks make boatloads of money
just like car wrecks attract the blood thirsty voyeur.
Such attention often creates even more cash sucking
train wrecks. It also doesn't hurt that it makes mile high
piles of money for corporate masters like GE,
Murdoch, Clear Channel and Disney who think it's OK to trade
true patriotism for cash, corporate "personhood"
and off, shore/tax free, addresses.
It's time to return when there was no such thing
as "corporate personhood,"
and if you're not serving the public good, you
lose corporate status.
Plus, I sure would like to see the actual death
penalty applied to a few CEOs
whose decisions have lead to the deaths of many
Excerpt: Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds dropped a
bombshell on the Mike Malloy radio show,
guest-hosted by Brad Friedman (audio, partial
transcript). In the interview, Sibel says that the US
maintained 'intimate relations' with Bin Laden,
and the Taliban, "all the way until that day of September 11."
These 'intimate relations' included using Bin
Laden for 'operations' in Central Asia, including Xinjiang, China.
These 'operations' involved using al Qaeda and
the Taliban in the same manner "as we did during the Afghan
and Soviet conflict," that is, fighting 'enemies'
As Sibel has previously described, and as she
reiterates in this latest interview, this process involved using
Turkey (with assistance from 'actors from Pakistan,
and Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia') as a proxy, which
in turn used Bin Laden and the Taliban and others
as a proxy terrorist army.
Of course he did, and he might still be
working for the Bush bastards.
Without bin Laden, where would Bush have gotten
the excuse to expand presidential power
and spy on us and spend extra trillions on defense
and destroy the damn Constitution?
Osama and the Bush bastards are the best thing
that ever happened to each other.
Before Wilson shouted out, there were other instances
of booing, which is allowed, during Obama's speech.
I'm betting several Repigs were going to shout
out along with him but chickened out.
People like this backbencher don't have the guts
to do something like that alone. That's my guess.
Also, Jan Schakowsky said several Democrats sat
on the Repig side of the aisle and clapped
and jumped up during the speech just to piss
them off. Ha ha. Sounds like high school days.
"The weirdness of the Wingnut summer isn't
over. The anger has metastasized into the body politic, and it's going to get a lot uglier
from here. Obama Derangement Syndrome is able to rally tens of thousands of citizens to the Washington
Mall after Glenn Beck's call. Joe Wilson's outburst isn't an embarrassment of incivility to these
folks; it is a rallying cry for an army of useful idiots. But Republicans will soon find that they cannot contain
or moderate this strain--while Democrats won't understand what hit them. -- John Avalon,
"I started thinking opponents were blackening
Obama back in July, when poor oppressed Caucasians like Sens. Jeff Sessions, Tom Coburn and Lindsey
Graham made it sound like it was open season on white guys. Then came the screaming of the Birthers, the
angry gun-toting town-hall haters, the shrieking of Palinites over 'death panels.'...Finally, when Republicans
began objecting to Obama's speaking to schoolkids, you couldn't ignore the racism: Listening to some
parents' expressing actual fear of having Obama beamed into their kids' classrooms, it was hard to imagine
such hysteria being inspired by a white president. It would never happen." --

Why does reading the news in September feel like reading
Excerpt: In an unprecedented but symbolic reprimand, the
House on Tuesday voted to condemn racist Joe Wilson,
South Carolina Republican, for exclaiming, "You
lie," during President Obama's address to Congress in a vote
that highlighted how fractured debates have become
on Capitol Hill.
Amazingly, 179 Republicans voted it's OK to screamg
lie" at a president addressing congress on live TV.
The resolution of disapproval capped a week in
which Mr. Wilson refused to apologize publicly for his outburst and
in which he and a potential Democratic opponent
raked in the campaign contributions from partisans on both sides.
Racist Joe Wilson has become famous for bad bahavior,
like Charlie Manson and Chris Brown.
Excerpt: Think about it this way...
Imagine your brother-in-law came to you and said,
"Send me $18,000 per year, and I'll keep it for you. Whenever you need money to spend, just come
to me, and I'll pay the bill for you ... as long as I approve of the item you plan to buy. Then, at the
end of the year, whatever you haven't spent, I get to keep."
Would you take that deal, or would you laugh at
him and suggest to your wife that he be committed?
I like that because it's an idea those toothless rednecks can wrap their
tiny brains around.
Of course, Glenn Beck will tell them to go ahead and give their brother-in-law
And they'll do whatever he tells them to do.
My hubby and I lived in Columbia for 3 long years
(seemed like three decades) and during that time he was laid off
and had to apply for unemployment. The

that unemployment was just "Democrat welfare".
Most of the population is military or retired
military (Ft. Jackson, nearby Shaw Airforce Base) and RACIST to the core.
Most of the native born have never been out of
the state and thought we were "Yankees" since we are from Tennessee.
They had Blue Laws that had been in effect since
the Civil War, you couldn't shop on Sunday except for groceries and
even then you couldn't buy anything that might
cause you to "work" on the "Sabbath"......no laundry detergent,
no dishwashing liquid, no brooms or mops. It
was INSANE. Those have been repealed since that time, but it was
turning you calendar back a hundred years when
you crossed the state line. Oh yeah, one other thing, the liquor
all closed at SUNDOWN. EVERY DAY.
Hell, we're from a RED STATE that caused Gore to lose, (Tennessee)
but we look downright LIBERAL next to those jerks)
So, yeah, folk there are hateful, ignorant, and
of course REPUBLICAN of course.

to a "Commie".

Excerpt: Last Wednesday, Racist Joe Wilson shouted “You
lie!” at Obama when he said that the healthcare bill
would not cover illegal immigrants. “The supporters
of the government takeover of healthcare and liberals
who want to give healthcare to illegals are using
my opposition as an excuse to distract from the critical
questions being raised about this poorly conceived
plan,” Wilson said the next day in a campaign fundraising video.
However, in 2003, Wilson voted to provide federal
funds for illegal immigrants’ healthcare. The vote came on the
Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization
Act of 2003, which contained Sec. 1011 authorizing
$250,000 annually between 2003 and 2008 for government
reimbursements to hospitals who provide treatment for
uninsured illegal immigrants. The program has
been extended through 2009 and there is currently a bipartisan bill in
Congress to make it permanent.

I began reading your site before Bush2.
Through your site I leaned of Al Franken on Air America.
When Al left Air Aamerica, I started listening
to Thom Hartmann.
Thom's show has lead me to so
much more QUALITY information. Since I
live in a Neo-Con resort called Peoria, the only way I
can hear Thom is to buy his podcasts. (I
am glad you graciously accept an occasion donation).
The point is:
Much like yourself, Thom's show is one more great
source of knowledge for us progressives.
He provides links to many sites like you site.
He regularly brings in the right wings for a debate.
Those debates provide information that I use
to discuss the facts with my right wing friends and coworkers.

He answers questions from ordinary American's.

Thanks for your efforts!!
Bart, I have followed politics for nearly forty
years, and I covered them for ten.
EVERY Rethuglican politician who is for
“traditional family values” is a crook or a pervert,
every goddam one, without exception. This
goes from city councilman up to Preznit.
So many times have I seen this happen, that I
believe it like I believe in the rotundity of the earth.
When someone says that Joe X is a Rethuglican
and for “traditional family values” I set him down
as a pervert or a bribe taker or both.
And the more he tries to prove he is not, the more I am certain he is.

Hey Bart, it appears you need to learn a little
about probability theory.
That would not surprise me.
It sounds like Phil Ivey was betting 50K at even
odds on events that were equally likely to occur,
without any house percentage at all. If I remember
Nick the Greek's rules, blackjack is the best game
- if you can keep track of the cards a little,
the percentage actually goes in your favor (keep track of them
a lot and you'll be invited to leave the casino)
Faro was second, but no casinos offer that anymore.
Baccarat/chemin de fer I think was next, and craps
was fourth with a slim 1.6 percent in favor of
the house, but only if you play Pass/Don't Pass and take the odds.
In reality, Phil was taking the same odds
as a coin toss, where heads will come up the same amount as tails.
Compare that to the twelve bet in craps which
should occur once out of every thirty six rolls
BUT the house only pays thirty to one.
I must've missed the lesson you were going to give me.
My point was and is - why bet $50,000 on a coin toss when you're sometimes taking 90 seconds to think about a
$3000 decision based on skill and probability?

Of course it was planned.
Joe Wilson is a right wing poser but he is not
Unlike the riff-raff teabaggers and birthers who
are whipped up in a mob frenzy from Limbaugh, Hannity and Beck,
Wilson knows better. He has also learned
from Glenn Beck (and Caribou Barbie) the more outrageous and outspoken
you are about an issue, the more nutjobs you
have throwing their support behind you.
Soon you will be seeing the wingnuts with signs
saying Joe Wilson For President.

that Obama's health care reform plan will lead to death panels. Said the pollster: "That's a minority,
but it's a pretty sizable one, and that could spell trouble for the White
House. -- Political Wire,
I can't say for sure, but Obama seems to think his presidency
is not in trouble.
If 41% of voters think you're promoting death panels, you've
got a huge f-ing problem.
Is Obama wearing blinders?
Or does he have a problem relating to reality?
Why can't he see what the low-IQ Okie sees?
Why do YOU think Obama fails to see this house on fire?
Excerpt: In eight states, getting beaten up by your spouse
is a pre-existing condition.
Under the cold logic of the insurance industry,
it makes perfect sense: If you are in a marriage
with someone who has beaten you in the past,
you're more likely to get beaten again than the
average person and are therefore more expensive
In human terms, it's a second punishment for a
victim of domestic violence.
In 2006, Democrats tried to end the practice.
An amendment introduced by Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.),
split the Health Education Labor & Pensions
Committee 10-10. The tie meant that the measure failed.
All ten no votes were Republicans, including
Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyoming), a member of the "Gang of Six"
on the Finance Committee who are hashing out
a bipartisan bill. A spokesman for Enzi didn't immediately return a call
