Quote of the Day

"I’ve not been very happy with 
  the White House’s Obama's lukewarm 
  support of the public option." 
      -- Tom Harkin,    Link

  If we end up with a good health care system, 
  Obama will be the hero and he deserves that.

  But if he fails, won't it be due to sheepish inaction?

  How is it "leadership" to tell Reid and Pelosi to
  "figure it out and call me when it's over?"

"For Rush and Glenn and Balloon Dad, the allure of media attention is too powerful to be curbed by 
  a sense of social responsibility. When a troubled soul with nothing to offer craves the national spotlight, 
  he builds a balloon and tells an outrageous story. When a political party with no good ideas thirsts for power, 
  it outsources its message to those who manufacture fear and incite anger."

Journalists Defend Fox News
 by Dan Froomkin

The Obama administration's recent characterization of Fox News is a long overdue acknowledgment of the obvious: 
Fox News is not a legitimate news organization -- indeed, after many years of serving as the research and messaging wing 
of the GOP, it has now gone beyond even that, to become the electronic evangelist of an ultra-partisan and non-reality-based world view.

Historically speaking, White House criticism of the media has often been unseemly and defensive, with the president's ire generally 
provoked by journalists who excel at their work -- by asking cheeky questions, exposing important things that the president would 
prefer be kept secret, holding the powerful accountable and playing host to a vibrant and informed exchange of a wide range of political opinions.

But in this case, the critique is something else entirely. The Obama White House is not upset at news gatherers for doing their job. 
What Obama and his aides are correctly pointing out is that the people working at Fox News are doing another job altogether.

The White House "attack" on Fox is being derided as bad politics, as ineffective and as a distraction from more important issues 
-- all of which may be true. But doesn't it kind of matter that, when it comes to the substance of what Anita Dunn, David Axelrod 
and Rahm Emanuel, and now even Obama himself have said, they're exactly right?

I'm with the "fight back" crowd.

We've been the surrender party since 1980 and I'm tired of it.

"We may be No. 1, but there is sort of an insurgent quality to Fox News. And that's kind of 
  our attitude:   'Hoist a Jolly Roger, pull out our daggers and look for more throats to slit.' 
  This is tremendous fodder for us.  My lord, we've been living on it."
   -- Brit Hume, calling FOX News a bunch of murdering pirates,

"Fox News shows should probably carry a warning: Contact your doctor 
  if you have rage lasting more than four hours."
    --  Louis Menand

 Subject: Bush and New Orleans

I don't know where to start on this. It sounds like he is having twinges of a guilty conscience 
and his non-action in the face of the destruction of New Orleans.
So he is wondering if he should have send in the troops to save the day? If he hadn't dismantled 
Clinton's excellent FEMA program, he would not be left to wonder how to respond in an emergency.
I hate him as much now as when his incompetent, lying, murderous self was in the White House.

 Subject: Bush and New Orleans

Sending in the National Guard to New Orleans was against the law?
Is this the new spin?
How did we survive 8 years of this prick?

4,500 soldiers and 8,000 drowning victims didn't.

One ‘No’ Too Many?


The "party of no" just might have gone one vote too far this time.

By now most Americans have heard about the 30 Senate Republicans who voted against an amendment 
that would have prohibited government contracts with companies that use mandatory arbitration clauses 
to deny assault victims the right to have their cases heard in court...

Whose bright idea was it to unify against something like this? 
Surely opponents are already dreaming up campaign ads for the next election cycle.

It would appear to be common sense for members of Congress to overwhelmingly support legislation 
that helps rape victims, not add salt to their emotional wounds. But the words "common sense" do not 
describe what has been taking place inside the GOP lately...

Even John Cornhole of Texas recently acknowledged: the GOP is no longer a national party.

Newsflash: Republicans, formerly known as the "tough on crime guys" aren’t going to regain 
national status by voting against legislation that further hurts rape victims.  The party has truly lost its way, 
and this 'No' vote against Franken’s amendment might just be one 'No' too many."

The Republicans have nothing to worry about.
The Democrats are too polite to list the facts during a political campaign.

If *I* was running against a senator who voted to protect gang rapists, 
you'd fucking damn sure would hear about it, again and again.

I'd run a "pro-rape" commercial 500 times and then force the Rethug to admit 
it was a mistake to vote that way - then you question his lack of judgment.

But the Democrats don't listen to my advice.  

They don't reach for victory.
They'd rather wait and see if victory floats over to them.

Mike Malloy Live

Pee Bush goes for the Purple
 How else could any Bush win an election?



Lt. Junior Grade Pee Bush, 33, joined the Navy Reserve in 2007 as an intelligence officer. Seriously.
That's what you can get when your cousin is an unqualified Commander in Thief.   The Navy recently 
told him that the two ongoing wars required him to go active-duty overseas, potentially in Iraq or Afghanistan. 
"They said that it's not a question of 'if,' it's a question of 'when,'" Bush told The Daily Beast. "It's just a matter of time."

Bush, who claims he was inspired by his grandfather H.W. Bush getting shot down at sea, as well as murdered NFL star 
Pat Tillman, signed up for an eight-year term in the Navy Reserve in 2007. When word got out about his enlistment, 
Pee told Politico that he was "disappointed" as he'd intended to keep it under wraps, saying, "I was hoping to keep this 
as confidential as possible. I'm not doing it for political purposes or anything along those lines," he said with a straight face.

"Surely Obama and his advisers don’t really think that their feud with Fox News 
  will do anything but enhance the cable network’s viewership."
    -- Clarence Page, telling Obama to just lie there and take it,    Link

 If you're on a long flight, and the snot-nosed nine year old behind you kicks your seat, you take it.

 But after 100 kicks you turn around and talk to his parents.

 After 200 kicks you take your case to the flight attendent.

 After 300 kicks, you turn around and smack the little bastard yourself.

 No, Clarence. "Taking it forever" is how we've always done things.
 I'm with Obama on this one.

 The entire media spectrum treats FOX with respect and dignity - that's horseshit.
 They should be laughed at and ridiculed until everyone understands they are clowns.

Subject: Re: Swine flu

You're smarter than this, Bart:   

(I hate it when they start off with a personal attack.)

You wrote:

>"Why not insist/demand that every school and every public building have Purell 
> or some kind of anti-bacterial tissues at every entrance and in every classroom?"

If you meant this in general...okay, fine, whatever.  If you meant it specifically for the swine flu...

Swine flu is a virus, not a bacteria.  Anti-bacterial crap does crap to viruses.  (As, for that matter, 
do antibiotics, but antibiotics don't have the cleaning industry marketing them.)

So, NOT washing your hands is a better idea?

You do what you think is best, Mr Smart Ass.
 I'll stick with the CDC:

"Wash your hands often with soap and water. 
  If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub."

Subject: swine flu being a national emergency


You asked why the government inst doing anything if its a national emergency. You also asked 
why call it a national emergency and not ask the nation to take any action? I think you have a Bart's Law 
that may answer this question, I am not sure which number, but find the entity that's making money off of 
our president declaring the swine flu a national emergency, and you will be closer the why question.

Hope all is well with you and yours!
<nice U2 review, thanks>

I don't think that's even possible.

Rude Pundit: Snowe has "mad fellatio skillz"

 Link  to listen

Yes, the Rude Pundit did say that Olympia Snowe had "mad fellatio skillz" on national radio. 
The discussion of the subject between the Rude Pundit and Stephanie Miller is merely a pretext, 
of course, for a groin-throbbing dance of projected lust.

"There are conservatives who know perfectly well that Beck is an unhinged buffoon who traffics in crude, 
  ridiculous ideas. But unlike the hapless GOP, he’s popular and effective in the political war against Obama. 
  So these conservative cynics adopt a 'no enemies to the right' approach to Beck, even though he’s mainstreaming 
  the ooga-booga worldview of a crank prophet who believed, with the John Birch Society, that Eisenhower was a 
  closet commie. This is foolish. Not every enemy of Obama is a friend to conservatism."

Subject: Getting flu shots

Last week I went to my VA and every person entering had to get a hand disinfectant, 
and they are placed on walls everywhere. Two nurses giving flu shots, I waited in line. 
  ole vet

I paid $25 for my flu shot and it made me angry.
I know America is broke, but charging $25 for flu shots means lots of people won't get them.

Isn't in everyone's best interests to have a healthy population?

Bush gave the super-rich trillions in tax breaks
but we make the poor pay $25 to stay healthy?

If the people with some money are the only non-infectors,
don't we have millions of carriers spreading this deadly disease?

'Glenn Beck Day' expensive 
 for small town of birther handjobs


Glenn Beck Day in Mount Vernon was an expensive lesson for this small town.

It's on the hook for $17,748, mostly for 239 hours of police overtime.

Isn't that a little steep for a one-day event?

"Honestly, I'm a bit surprised at how big the cost was," says Alicia Huschka, the town's finance director.

They acted without thinking of the costs?
How do the extra-stupid keep winning elections?

Subject: sleeping pilots

Hey Bart,

I have read Patrick Smith's Ask the Pilot column in Salon for several years.  He has detailed the long hours, 
the crummy pay, and other abuses that pilots have endured since the Republican deregulation of the airlines.  
I suspect that these pilots were napping because they were both completely exhausted.  I hope that the Obama 
Administration investigates the entire situation instead of merely scapegoating these pilots.

We have reached the unbelievable place in our Country where the pilots have little or no influence over the airlines, 
the teachers have little or no influence over the schools, the farmers have little or no influence over agriculture, 
and the doctors have little or no influence over health care.  

How did our supposedly-free Country find itself in such a situation?
Best regards,

A pilot friend of mine said those sleeping pilots missed their chance to change things.

Maybe they should've said, "Yes, we fell asleep because we're working three jobs,
trying to make a decent living because you've cut our paycheck so many times."

Pilots on food stamps is a bad idea.

CIA Still Cagey About Oswald

For six years, the CIA has fought in federal court to keep secret hundreds of documents from 1963, when an anti-Castro 
Cuban group it paid clashed publicly with the soon-to-be assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. The C.I.A. says it is only protecting 
legitimate secrets. But because of the agency’s history of stonewalling assassination inquiries, even researchers with no use for
conspiracy thinking question its stance.

The files in question, some released under direction of the court and hundreds more that are still secret, involve the curious 
career of George E. Joannides, the case officer who oversaw the dissident Cubans in 1963. In 1978, the agency made 
Mr. Joannides the liaison to the House Select Committee on Assassinations — but never told the committee of his earlier role.

Was Prescott Bush a German Jew?
 If so, why did he help Hitler murder millions of them?


"Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners 
into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the Commander in Chief of the American 
army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen."
    -- John Jay's letter to George Washington, presiding officer of the Constitutional Convention (1787).

George W. Bush (German Jewish name George Scherf III):

"I don't know if you know this or not, but my great-grandfather built a home right here in Columbus, on Roxbury Road," 
Bush told the National Association of Home Builders in Columbus on Oct. 2, 2004. My grandfather was born in this city 
back in 1895, so I hope a month from now the Ohio voters will send a homeboy back to Washington." (source)
