Paranoia Strikes Deep


Last Thursday there was a rally outside the U.S. Capitol to protest pending health care legislation, featuring large signs 
showing piles of bodies at Dachau with the caption "National Socialist Healthcare." It was grotesque - and it was also ominous. 
For what we may be seeing is America starting to be Californiafied.

The key thing to understand about that rally is that it wasn’t a fringe event. It was sponsored by the House Republican leadership
- in fact, it was officially billed as a G.O.P. press conference. Senior lawmakers were in attendance, and apparently had no problem 
with the tone of the proceedings.

True, Eric Cantor, the second-ranking House Republican, offered some mild criticism after the fact. But the operative word is "mild." 
The signs were "inappropriate," and the use of Hitler comparisons by such people as Rush Limbaugh, said Mr. Cantor, "conjures up 
images that frankly are not, I think, very helpful."

What all this shows is that the G.O.P. has been taken over by the people it used to exploit.

The state of mind visible at recent right-wing demonstrations is nothing new. Back in 1964 the historian Richard Hofstadter published 
an essay titled, "The Paranoid Style in American Politics," which reads as if it were based on today's headlines: Americans on the far right, 
he wrote, feel that "America has been largely taken away from them and their kind, though they are determined to try to repossess it and 
to prevent the final destructive act of subversion." Sound familiar?

But while the paranoid style isn’t new, its role within the G.O.P. is.

THANKS for the mention of Kimberly Munley.  The news items I watched
didn't mention her at all, Bart, I had no idea.  Why wasn't she mentioned more?

AND DAMN STRAIGHT that if conservatives had their way, she never would have been there.
Thanks for saying what nobody else has.

Women can be as deadly, aggressive, brave and passionate as any man, Bart.
Remember the old argument?  "Well, if a woman can't carry a 250 lb man out of harm's way,
she has no business being:  (a policeman) (in the army) (a pilot) (serving in combat)(a fireman)."

Sgt. Munley just shot that theory all to hell.  Two shots of Chinaco, I say.
That was more than just "doing her job."

Mike Malloy Live

You didn't get mad...

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when VP Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy Policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA Operative was revealed.

You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act was passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded Iraq looking for WMD'S that didn't exist.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 Billion dollars(and counting) on Iraq War.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn't get mad when Bush was illegally wiretapping us at home and work.

You didn't get mad when Bush borrowed money to give to the oil companies.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible Conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let New Orleans drown.

You didn't get mad when Bush got 4,500 soldiers killed.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when---- The government decided that people in America
deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.

Illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, giving your tax dollars to super-rich, are all OK with you?
But helping other Americans is the last straw?

Seven presidents have tried to pass a Health Care Plan of some sort and
have failed. None have had the "hate filled" opposition of this president.

GOP Threatens Rep Cao
How dare he agree to give people health care!


Rep. Joseph Cao (R-LA) was solely responsible for dashing the Republican leadership’s hopes of having all 177 
of its members vote against historic health care legislation on Saturday. Cao broke with his party and voted with 
Democrats after speaking personally to President Obama and pressing for more federal funds for his district, 
which is still struggling after Hurricane Katrina...

The reaction to Cao from the right wing has been swift and fierce, with some comparing the only non-Hispanic 
minority in the GOP caucus to Mao Tse Tung and calling him racial epithets. Rep. Don Young (R-AK) - who has 
defended Cao’s vote - had to stand beside him during Saturday’s roll call, "fending off his GOP colleagues who 
might have twisted Cao’s arms." Last week, RNC Chairman Michael Tom Steele made clear that moderates who 
don’t walk the Party line have no place in the GOP...

Obama's Learning Curve


Is Barack Obama's cool style of governing fundamentally incompatible with the furnace of modern politics? 
Bipartisan conclaves, bringing industry to the table(s), relative transparency, accommodation and consensus meetings 
are all ornaments of the Obama brand. But political parties, built around existing alignments of interests, tend to get excited 
about fighting. Base-tending is crucial to political husbandry. Obama has a gourmand's disdain for populism and picking fights.

This is, in some ways, a presidential sickness (or salutation, depending on your point of view.) Der Fuhrer Bush fashioned himself 
above politics in early 2001. His tax cut aside, he spent much of his time before September pushing his party to accept a massive 
new education entitlement, No Child Left Behind. He was a uniter, not a ... etc. The Bush political machine was focused on 
broadening the Bush coalition from 2000, which consisted of, among other constituencies,  conservative Democrats, Hispanics 
and a healthy measure of true independents. The tax cuts had not forestalled the onset of a recession.

After 9/11, the brass knuckles came out. Karl Rove's instincts were unleashed. The base furnace kindled; the world become 
"us" versus "them," and the Democratic Party was too loyal and not enough opposition. The Bush White House picked fights, 
and razzed conservatives. Bush's political strategists succeeded in pushing independents to make a choice between parties 
and helped to reduce the partition of unaligned independents to about 8% of the electorate by 2004.

But Democrats aren't scared of the Obama White House. Republicans, after 2002, were very scared of the Bush White House. 
The price of being independent -- especially in these times -- is worth the disapproval of the White House. 
That the DNC/Organizing for America organization didn't score upset victories on Tuesday night 
will probably persuade other Democrats that they don't need too much help.

CIA agents guilty of Italy kidnap 


An Italian judge has convicted 23 American CIA agents for the 2003 kidnap of a Muslim cleric.

The agents were accused of abducting Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr, known as Abu Omar, from Milan 
and sending him to Egypt, where he was allegedly tortured.   The trial, which began in June 2007, 
is the first involving Cheney's "snatch and torture" program. 

So, do these men have an international bounty on their heads, like Roman Polanski?
If they travel to Europe or the Far East, will other governments grab and hold them to be sent to Italy?

Or is that kind of kidnapping only done by the US, because we have the biggest military?

Keeping your pants on is tricky?

Subject: GM & Ford

The clunker program helped a little bit, but the big help for GM has been the infusion
of tax money that has helped them update their plants and buy out the well-paid old timers.

That and the fact that more people are realizing how harmful it is to our economy and personal
well being when they buy the overrated, overpriced and under performing Honda’s, Toyotas and Hyundai’s.

Dude, you are confusing loyalty and logic.
If the Ferrari beats the Chevy five races in a row,
how can you continue to insist the Chevy is faster?.
It's not un-American to face the facts.

Keep plugging away, and hopefully your Honda will break down soon
so you can buy American and see what you’ve been missing for 25 years!
 Danny Detroit

Dude, you know I applaud loyalty, but you can't ignore the facts.

If you choose to ignore the "Japanese cars are better" facts, I can see why,
but how can you ignore the "America thinks Japanese cars are better" facts?

It's not disloyal to say "German tanks were faster than US tanks."
It's not disloyal to say "Japanese zeroes turned tighter than US planes."

The facts are not our enemy.

 Of course that's a fake because back in the sixties,

 I give you my official Nancy Grace Guarantee that nobody could have

Obama's Greatest Mistake
 His Afghan Plan: Sending 40K More Troops


Tonight, after months of conferences with top advisors, President Obama has settled on a new strategy for Afghanistan. 
David Martin reports that the president will send a lot more troops and plans to keep a large force there, long term.

The president still has more meetings scheduled on Afghanistan, but informed sources say he intends to give 
Gen. Stanley McChrystal most, if not all, the additional troops he is asking for.
McChrystal wanted 40,000 and the president has tentatively decided to send four combat brigades plus thousands 
more support troops. A senior officer says "that's close to what [McChrystal] asked for." All the president's military 
advisers have recommended sending more troops.

But they also have warned that troops alone will not win the war unless Afghan President Hamid Karzai cleans up his government. 

So Obama is going to travel the same road as Johnson, Nixon and Monkey Bush.
He's going to try to conquer mountains and goat herders with military force.

How will he know when he's achieved victory?

We both know eventually the public will demand that we get out, so why not get out now 
and save the lives of the thousands of soldiers that will die between now and, say, the summer 
of 2012 when he brings the troops home just before the election?

bart, you wrote:

> "So far we could use a little more LBJ with Obama - threatening, cajoling...

>     -- Doris Kearns Goodwin, on Obama's nice-guy leadership style

Doris seems to have forgotten that LBJ served in the House from 1937 - 1949 and in the
Senate from 1949 on.  He knew where the badies were buried, hence could twist arms like no other.

Obama, OTOH, was in the Senate for two years, he barely knew where the cloakroom was
let alone the bodies, buried or otherwise.

Doris is usually spot on but on this while her sentiment is sound, the logic of his learning
in 1 year that which took LBJ 20 years is a tad lacking, no?

Keep up the good work buddy.
 Bob in Orlando

Granted, Obama doesn't have LBJ's mid-20th-century cunning, but maybe he doesn't need that.
I'm not asking Obama to be another Machiavelli, tho that would be nice.

I'm just asking him to come to work and do the job he promised he'd do.

Why fight so hard for a job if you don't want to come to work?

Bart, you run that cartoon of Jonah Goldberg's mom blowing LBJ.
What's up with that?

Well, John, I wasn't there like Naomi Judd was when evil Bill Clinton ravaged the innocent virgin Monica,
but history suggests that Lucianne Goldberg was LBJ's "Monica" and I chose not to engage in that cover-up.

I realize that the facts aren't in Jonah Goldberg's favor, but maybe he'd draw less fire if he
wasn't such a lying Nazi whore, paid for by the super-rich to steal from those with nothing.

Steven Tyler quits Aerosmith?


In a piece published by The Las Vegas Sun on Friday, Perry said that Tyler had quit the band following
a recent concert in Abu Dhabi, though he didn't seem to know the reasoning behind the decision.

"Steven quit, as far as I can tell," Perry told the newspaper. "I don't know anymore than you do about it.
I got off the plane two nights ago. I saw online that Steven said that he was going to leave the band.
I don't know for how long, indefinitely or whatever. Other than that, I don't know."

Perry's comments were in reference to an interview Tyler gave to British magazine Classic Rock,
in which he said that he had canceled all remaining Aerosmith dates and was focused on pursuing a solo project.

Regardless, things haven't been rosy in the Aerosmith camp for some time. In August, the band canceled the
remainder of their tour while Tyler recovered from injuries sustained after he fell off a stage in Sturgis, North Dakota.
And just last month, Perry told MTV News that the band was on "indefinite hiatus."
