 I'm starting to feel sorry for the guy.
 This is NOT a murder, but we haven't seen a big star in this much trouble since O.J.
 The cops think a crime was committed. That's the basis for their search warrant
 His career is in trouble and his marriage is in trouble.
 His image with the public has changed, perhaps irrevocably.

 And on top of all that, he can't even open his mouth to defend himself
 because defending himself probably requires throwing his wife to the wolves.

 Tiger's in a box and I can't see a way out.

Junkie named top conservative
 The vulgar Pigboy "most influential" Rethug


By a wide margin, Americans consider Rush Limbaugh the nation's most influential conservative voice.

Those are the results of a poll conducted by "60 Minutes" and Vanity Fair magazine and issued Sunday.
The radio whore was picked by 26 percent of those who responded, followed by Glenn Beck at 11 percent.
Actual politicians - Cheney and Palin - were the choice of 10 percent each.

Asked to choose from among seven presidents, Americans tapped John F. Kennedy as the one they'd like
to see added to Mount Rushmore. Kennedy polled 29 percent, with Ronald Reagan second at 20 percent.

Judge blasts crooked bankers
Socks them with $525,000 in penalties for stealing


A Long Island couple is home free after an outraged judge canceling their debt to ruthless bankers trying to toss them out on the street.
Suffolk Judge Jeffrey Spinner wiped out $525,000 in mortgage payments demanded by a California bank, blasting its "harsh, repugnant,
shocking and repulsive" acts.

The bombshell decision leaves Diane and Greg Horoski, owing no money on their house in East Patchogue.
Spinner pulled no punches as he smacked down the bankers at OneWest (R-Crooked) who took an $814.2 million
federal bailout but have a record of coldbloodedly foreclosing on any homeowner owing money.

"The bank was so intransigent that the judge decided to punish them," Greg Horoski, 55, said
about Spinner's scathing ruling last Thursday against OneWest and its IndyMac mortgage division.

I applaud the Horoski's for fighting back.  The greedy Rethug bastards will steal until you tell them,
"Stop, ya bastards," which is what I've been telling Democrats since the Bush bastards stole power.

  "Nobody listens to you, Bart."

 Subject: Gregg Craig

 Hey Bart,

 I was a high-school (Exeter, dontcha know) classmate of Craig's, and there's something odd about him:
 At our 40th reunion in April of 2003 he addressed us, and when I asked him about duhbaya's insane, criminal invasion
 of Eye Rack, he defended it vigorously as a very savvy move.

 I knew right then that he was either irrevocably corrupt, or just plain loony.
 Either way, it's no great loss...
   Bob in Prague

 Back in 1998, Clinton was in trouble so I offered to help.

 I wrote that Clinton's impeachment had all the credibility of Sheriff Cliff Barnes
 arresting J.R. Ewing for murder without a body, a witness or a murder weapon.

 A few days later, Craig made that same argument in the Senate floor.

 But yeah, anyone who spells Gregg with 3 Gs needs to be watched closely.

Obama's big Tuesday speech


I thought about doing a live chat room thing for this speech,
but things could get out of hand so I wanted some buffer.

How in the world is he going to sell America a bigger, second war?
Why in the world is he going to sell America a bigger, second war?

It's possible he'll lay out a logical, finite, winnable plan with an exit strategy
but if those plans were easy to come by, we'd see them all the time, right?

Obama's going to give his speech and then pundits from both sides will Google 
each sentence so they can say Obama is "just like" previous mistaken presidents.

How can he avoid that?

I wrote this at 10 PM Central Monday night.
Twenty four hours from now, we'll be in a different era.
If Obama does what they say he's going to do, he'll be Obama the Hawk.
The Right will hate him no matter what and now the Left will say "He sold us out."

His decision is huge, but all things consider, why not gamble 
with the option that guarantees thousands fewer dead Americans?

That would be coming home.

Non-Thought out Sidebar:
Maybe we should consider changing the way we wage war the way the NFL changes their plays.
What if, instead of full-blown wars, we only did strategic strikes?

If some country gets out of line and needs to be punished, why can't we drop 3,000 Marines
in their capitol and have them go "Tarantino" on their major assets - and then we're gone.

I like that idea a LOT better than I like what we're doing now.
Maybe that's our way out of Afghanistan.

We withdraw our troops, but when the satellites tell us we have "activity," we drop 1500 Marines 
on their hyper-surprised ass and, one would hope, maybe 1490 of our guys go home alive.

Ten dead solider is a terrible thing, but I'm talking one-time operations. 
The way we do things now, we lose a few soldiers a week - but we're coming up on a decade.

We live in a dangerous world.

Strong will always beat weak, 
but smart will always beat strong.

There's no question that the film is an enormous achievement in terms of its every resource
--art direction, color, sound, cinematography--being pushed to new limits for the greater glory 
of telling an American story as fully as possible. Vivien Leigh is still magnificently narcissistic, 
Olivia de Havilland angelic and lovely, Leslie Howard reckless and aristocratic. 
Clark Gable gives one of the most vital, masculine performances ever committed to film.

Mr. President, We Need a Fighter
 by Bill Moyers


So here we are, wallowing in our dysfunction. Governed -- if you listen to the rabble rousers -- by a black nationalist
from Kenya smuggled into the United States to kill Sarah Palin's baby. And yes, I could almost buy their belief that Saddam
had WMDs, only I think he shipped them to Washington, where they've been recycled as lobbyists and trained in money laundering,
which turns an old-fashioned bribe into a First Amendment right.

Poor Obama. He came to town preaching the religion of nice. But every time he bows politely, the harder the Republicans kick him.
No one's ever conquered Washington politics by constantly saying "pretty please" to the guys trying to cut your throat.

This health care thing is make or break for your leadership, but for us, it's life and death.
No more Mr. Nice Guy, Mr. President. We need a fighter.

Seems like every Democrat ('cept the Blue Dog backstabbers) wants Obama to come to work.

Why does our side go on vacation in the middle of a life-and-death struggle?

Behind every great fortune is a crime



Following his car "accident" Woods's agent said that it is unclear whether he will attend his foundation's Chevron World 
Challenge Golf Tournament. In 2008, Chevron entered a five-year relationship with Tiger Woods' foundation under the 
guise of philanthropy. But if Woods had a shred of social conscience, this partnership would never have existed. Lawsuits 
have been issued against Chevron for dumping toxic waste all over the planet. Alaska, Canada, Brazil, Angola and California 
have all accused Chevron of dumping. Even worse, Chevron has a partnership with Burma's ruling military junta on the country's 
Yadana gas pipeline project, the single greatest source of revenue for the military, estimated at nearly $5 billion since the year 2000.

Ka Hsaw Wa, co-founder and executive director of EarthRights International, wrote in an open letter to Woods, "I myself have 
spoken to victims of forced labor, rape, and torture on Chevron's pipeline--if you heard what they said to me, you too would 
understand how their tragic stories stand in stark contrast to Chevron's rhetoric about helping communities." Chevron is underwriting 
a dictatorship but Tiger Woods apparently sees them as upstanding corporate partners.

Bin Laden was 'in our grasp'
 But Cheney needed him 'at large' to scare us 


Osama bin Laden was unquestionably within reach of U.S. troops at Tora Bora when those Bush bastards 
made the crucial and costly decision not to pursue him with massive force, a Senate report says.

The report asserts that the failure to kill or capture bin Laden at his most vulnerable in December 2001 has had 
lasting consequences beyond the fate of one man. Bin Laden's escape laid the foundation for today's reinvigorated 
Afghan insurgency and inflamed the internal strife now endangering Pakistan, it says.

John Kerry has ineffectively long argued the Bush administration missed a chance to get Bush's former partner
when they were holed up in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan in December 2001."

A clear majority want the Democrats to pass a health care bill with a public option, even if this means it would get
no GOP votes--a striking result, given the sentiment Americans generally display toward bipartisanship in all its forms.

All of these results suggest that the Democrats' biggest obstacle on health care reform is not a fundamental lack of
public agreement but public weariness with the endless legislative grind. Vulnerable congressional Democrats may have
individual interests in establishing their moderate bona fides by challenging their party leadership. But they have a far
stronger collective interest in passing a bill.

The second, broader Republican goal is to essentially delegitimize Obama's presidency. . . . 'If the president--opposed by
a majority of Americans, with almost no support from the other party--imposes an ideologically divisive health reform,
it will smack of radicalism, reinforce polarization and may cede the ideological center to Republicans for years to come,'
cries former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson. Democrats 'know this legislation is. . . . possible only because of
temporary liberal majorities,' complains a Wall Street Journal editorial.

How, you might ask, does this differ from George W. Bush ramming through unpopular regressive tax cuts?
Well, those were temporary conservative majorities. The other difference, of course, is that Obama out-polled his
opponent by eight-and-a-half million votes, a margin that exceeded Bush's vote edge by nine million votes.

So, America WANTS health care reform AND the Democrats have the power to deliver it.

If only we could get Obama to join the fight and lead his party to the Promised Land.

Catholics buy Rape Insurance


The Archdiocese of Los Angeles agreed to pay $660 million to settle lawsuits from hundreds of sex-abuse victims.
About $250 million will be cash; $60 million will come from other religious orders and another $123 million from litigation
with orders that chose to sit out the deal. Insurance companies will pay the remaining $227 million.
Hold onócan churches buy insurance for sex abuse?

Yes. Like any business, religious organizations purchase insurance to protect themselves from lawsuits, like discrimination
claims or negligence charges against officers. Since the spike in sex-abuse lawsuits in the mid-1980s, churches have also
had the option to take out extra liability policies for damages related to sexual misconduct. These policies don't come cheap,
and they protect just the institutions, for the most part. Insurers will mount a legal defense for accused individuals, but the
support extends only so far: Perpetrators are on their own if they're found guilty or choose to settle out of court.

So the question becomes: What insurance comapny is crazy enough to bet against priest rapes?

Subject: Afghanistan

Hi Bart,

I sent this email to Mike Malloy and he read it on his show yesterday, then proceeded to go off on
one of those tirades that makes him so great to listen to. You may like it for your site. Best wishes and
I hope to be able to make another contribution more substantial than words once my writing work picks up.
Reprint it in any manner you choose if you want to.

Mike, I donít think there can be a middle ground in Afghanistan. An increase of 34,000 wonít ďwinĒ the war.
It will only lead to more body bags, more wounded, intensify the resistance and the end result will be the same - defeat.
Obey has the right idea about everyone sharing the burden, but he doesnít go far enough.

I think there are only two options, complete withdrawal (which I favor) or letís go all out and win it
so we can end it and can get the troops out. Obama should withdraw our military and let the corporations
hire Blackwater to fight it for them if they want to reap the energy profits. These companiesí ventures
would no longer be profitable without taxpayer subsidized military help.

If Obama canít withdraw and end the war, then letís go ALL OUT. 500,000 troops would be needed to
pacify the country, and since we donít have that many, letís bring the draft back. And no deferments for
undergrad students this time around. Everyone goes, everyone contributes. Iíd love the speech, ok congress,
right-wingers, you want a real war that we can win, now you have one. Take your pick, thereís no middle ground.
Youíd see how fast this war would end with either of these options. Of course both you and I know that would never happen.
 Greg in WI

It's possible Obama will say something Tuesday night to change my mind,
but I hope he doesn't feed us a load of crap to justify this (I think) very bad decision.
