"It's a very easy temptation for a presidential
advisor to think, Oh, we'll just give a wonderful speech and solve all the problems. You see
that happening with Obama now. A speech isn't going to solve anything, especially when you give them a dozen
times a week. People just stop listening." -- Matt Latimer,
Excerpt: Readers asked who I think would be a successful
Republican candidate in 2012...
My somewhat uninformed guesses: David Petraeus
and Colin Powell (who’d have all kinds of difficulty winning the primary).
You can say that again.
Cheney said Powell isn't even a Republican.
These accomplished generals share one related
trait: deep credibility as men who are serious about national security,
ha ha He said Powell has credibility?
Surely not with people who've heard of Bush's
"Powell's got no credibility with us..."
enabling them to run as sane, experienced stewards,
ha ha Stop it!
My sides are starting to hurt!
rather than bellicose idiots so desperate to seem
toughest on terrorism that they spend the primaries
calling for “doubling Gitmo” and competing to
see who would torture in more contrived ticking time bomb situations.
They’re also both post-partisan figures of the
kind that Americans seem to like, haven’t got long voting records
to be picked apart, and can nevertheless credibly
claim more executive experience than President Obama."
"Obama believes the Republican Party is a party
when in fact it’s a mindset, like Hitler Youth, based on hatred - religious hatred,
racial hatred. When you foreigners hear the word 'conservative' you think of kindly old men hunting
foxes. They’re not, they’re fascists."

Subject: Clinton didn't do shit
for the gay community
> "I think gay people and people who strongly
support gay rights should remember that Bill Clinton > caught a lot of hell for trying to give
gays more equality and when he got hurt in that battle, a lot of > people (like Rosie) turned their backs on
With all due respect, I have to disagree.
The only thing Clinton even attempted to do for the gay community was
the half-assed "Don't ask, don't tell," which
actually increased witch hunts against gays and lesbians serving our country
(in which we're still second-class citizens).
He didn't even try to get ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act) passed,
even as an amendment to the Defense of Marriage
Act, the first specifically anti-gay piece of legislation to be passed
American history, which, in a moment of extraordinary
cowardice, he signed at midnight so that there wouldn't be any
coverage of it on the news. When David
Mixner (a gay activist), a loyal Clintonista up to that point, complained
about it, the Big Dog called him and begged him
(like a Big Pussy) to stop.
Clinton didn't do shit for the gay community.
Period. I don't expect Obama to be any better,
beholden as he is to the notoriously homophobic
(and anti-gay violence promoting) African-American churches.
If I was Randi Rhodes, I could probably run off
a list of things Clinton did for gays. She's great at that.
But I know one of the first things he did was
TRY to get "Don't ask" in the military and gay-hater Sam Nunn
said that would only happen "over my dead body,"
which is a horrible thing for a Democrats to do to his
brand-new Democratic president, but that's what
Democrats do - they stab our winners in the back.
I'm straight, so I can't see the issue the same
way you do, but it's possible you're comparing Clinton
and Obama to that mythical "perfect president"
who never existed.
Clinton tried to take a big step but his own party
made him settle for a half-step.
Maybe you could direct some of your anger to
the Democrats who stopped him.
Excerpt: The Republicans are having one of their patented
hissy fits because Alan Grayson said that the Republican Health Care Plan
is to "not get sick" and "die quickly." The party
that has been claiming the Democrats are planning death panels is actually
insisting that he apologize to them. And George
Earlier this year Republican Representative Virginia
Foxx said on the House Floor that the Democrats had a plan to
"put seniors to death by their government" and
the mainstream press didn't say they deserved an apology. Republican
Representative Ginny Browne-Waite said the Democratic
healthcare plan "essentially tells seniors to drop dead" and
nobody sanctioned her. Why should Grayson be
singled out for telling the truth when their lies were deemed perfectly
Grayson is being targeted by the Republicans and
the mainstream press because he isn't afraid to tell it like it is.
They hope to silence him and defeat him in the
You can let him know you have his back by donating
to his reelection fund today.
In a clear sign that the left will not hold back
from targeting fellow Dems in the final stretch of the health care wars,
MoveOn is slamming the "centrist" Dem Senators
who voted against the public option amendments yesterday.
The ads will target Senators Kent Conrad, Blanche
Lincoln, and Max Baucus in their home states. All three voted
against the public option amendments pushed by
Senators Rocky and Chuckie in the Senate Finance Committee yesterday...
Some high-profile Dems have called on liberal
groups to hold their friendly fire. But as MoveOn’s spot reminds us,
there’s something of a split in the pro-reform
movement between the big liberal groups who are willing to hold their fire
and those who think the best way to affect real
long-term change is to continuously demand that Dems hew to core principles.
#1. you're STILL CRYING FOR HILLARY
- that _____ would PUSH THE BUTTON to NUKE
Tehran in a NY second.
Hell, she'd FIGHT Lieberman, Bolton,
Emanuel, Safire and all the other Likudniks for the honor, if you
let her within 100 feet of it.
Do you have a certificate that says you're sane?
Yes, one of us has a serious problem with America's
Secretary of State.
Why do you feel qualified to predict the future
and speak for others?
#2. you SCREAM and RAGE and RANT about
MATT TAIBI being "A BULLY" for sayin' nasty things about
the previous pope -
Matt Taibbi is a slimy, lying dog.
You're going to hold me responsible for speaking
... while YOU go APESHIT for the CURRENT
"Benny the Rat" pope!
The Vatican said what the Vaticam said.
I found enormous humor in their clumsy attempt
And as far as the old pope being on HIS DEATH-BED
?? TOUGH SHIT, Bart - as you know damn well, some of
ghoulish Catholics - like the ENTIRE catholic
contingent of the US Supreme Court (certainly alito and SCALIA)
BRING BACK THE INQUISITION in a New York second
if they could - and would GLOAT at the "auto da fe"
BURNING of victims at the stake, young, old,
men, women, mothers and fathers, whatever.
Have those headaches returned?
I'm having trouble figuring out which side you're
but WAH WAH WAH, bart
CRIES that mean ol' Matt showed no class, WAH WAH WAH !!
A slimy, lying dog is a slimy, lying dog.
What do you want from me?
You're not making any kind of case I can reply
ol' bart CASTIGATED the PREVIOUS
pope for RUNNING A SERIAL, SYSTEMATIC PROTECTION RACKET for
RAPIST Priests, too....
The facts are the facts.
but THE SAME ol' Bart GETS
ALL INDIGNANT about Matt Taibi reaming out that same
pope?? W T F?!
True, I have a problem with the Catholic Church running a worldwide,
organized rape ring.
I think everybody should have a problem with that, especially Catholics
who give the Church money.
Having said that, who wants to be associated with a crude and vulgar
lying shit who write things like...
52. Pope pisses himself just before the end;
gets all over nurse. 51. After death, saggy, furry tits of dead
Pope begin melting like Sno-cones under the sun.
I'm just glad everyone got a good look at what kind of "man" Taibbi
Recently, someone said we don't gave anything like a Pigboy or a Glenn
Beck on our side.

Excerpt: "A CBS News employee is accused of trying to
extort $2 million from David Letterman, forcing Dave to admit
in an extraordinary monologue before millions
of viewers that he's had sexual relationships with female employees.
Letterman said that "this whole thing has been
quite scary." But he mixed in jokes while outlining what had happened to
seeming to confuse a laughing audience at Thursday's
taping about whether the story was true.
The network said the person who was arrested works
for "48 Hours" and has been suspended.
The suspect is Robert J. Halderman and he was
arrested yesterday shortly after Dave tesified before a grand jury.
When Dave talked about it, he was kinda treating
it as a joke - but there was no apology.
Dave, you've been married less than a year.
Don't you think your wife deserves an apology?
" Notice: This site is parody/satire.
We assume Glenn Beck did not rape and murder a young girl in 1990, although
haven't yet seen proof that he
didn't. But we think Glenn Beck definitely uses tactics like this to spread
lies and misinformation.
Read the last sentence again. That's the point.
Read it a third time and ignore the name of the site itself,
because anyone who believes that we're trying
to actually get people to believe Glenn Beck raped and/or

Excerpt: Instead of working on a healthcare plan that
uses funding wisely, the Senate Finance Committee showed its proclivity
for wasting taxpayer money in order to prop up
flagging conservative ideology this week.
Not only have they refused to embrace measures
that would cut the costs of healthcare while expanding coverage
(public option, single payer, closing the donut
hole), conservative committee members voted to spend $50 million a year
on a program that has proved not only that it
does not work, but it does the opposite of what it is supposed to do.
Working late into the evening on amendments to
the proposed America's Healthy Future Act Tuesday,
the Finance Committee took the time to undermine
President Obama's request that the $50 million a year that goes
to support state programs offering abstinence-only
education in public schools be redirected to a program that offers
a more comprehensive approach. The amendment
reinstating abstinence-only education funding was presented by
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), but it got two crucial
votes from Blue Dog Democrats on the committee, Kent Conrad
of North Dakota and Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas,
passing by a narrow 12-11.
Everybody - even the GOP - knows it doesn't work.
I think they're trying appease the Invisible Cloud Being again..
Excerpt: We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve,
which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has "loaned" two trillion
dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the
past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms.
That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is
three times the $700 billion we all argued about so strenuously just this
September. Who has this money? Why do they have
it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized
I thought this was a government of "we the people,"
who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.
We have spent two or more decades intentionally
de-industrializing our economy.. Why?
Excerpt: It's too soon to tell, but there's a good chance
that Representative Alan Grayson, he of the "Die Quickly" Republican
health care plan, will end up fucking your shit
up. Too rich to be bought off, Grayson's been fucking with the powerful
for a few years now. As an attorney, he represented
whistleblowers, going after the hundreds of millions of dollars in
fraud committed by contractors and others in
Iraq. He told CNN in April 2006, "The development fund of Iraq was
looted by war profiteers and war whores." Check
out the huge ass article on him in Vanity Fair from 2007 (and check out
that goatee). He went after Halliburton and KBR;
he fucked with Dick Cheney. You think a man whose name is a
homophone with "boner" is gonna trouble him?
Excerpt: The 2016 Games are going to Rio de Janeiro.
In a vote of high drama, the bustling Brazilian
carnival city of beaches, mountains and samba beat
surprise finalist Madrid, which got a big helping
hand from a very influential friend.
Chicago was knocked out in the first round — in
one of the most shocking defeats ever handed down
by the International Olympic Committee. President
Barack Obama's last-minute hop to Denmark didn't
swing the games Chicago's way. He came, saw,
charmed but did not conquer.
It was assumed that the White Hpouse had insider good news - which is
why Obama went.
For him to go and give his sales pitch and then be turned away is embarrassing,
to say the least.
Known liar Lou Dobbs said Chicago spent $100M to TRY to get the Olympics.

billions of dollars
