"These things happen in such small numbers.
It's marvelous when you think of the hundreds and hundreds of priests and how very few have ever
been accused, and how very few have even come close to having anyone prove anything. Claims are one
thing. One does not take every claim against a human being as a proved misdeed. I'm interested in
proved misdeeds." -- New York Cardinal
Edward Egan, in a deposition for 23 lawsuits against seven priests,
He seems to be saying Catholics should feel "marvelous" that
more rapes didn't occur.
Or is he ordering his priests to film their rapes as they occur?
Excerpt: Obama should have declared victory in Afghanistan
and begun a withdrawal.
I agree 100%.
That would've made both wars Bush's wars and
Obama's hands would have been clean.
His escalation of the war may achieve its goals,
but at too great a cost - and without making
our nation meaningfully safer from the threat
of terrorist attacks...
I have no idea why he wants to round up cave-dwelling
goat-herders in a country the size of Texas.
What's he going to do with therm?
Look at what’s necessary for the surge in Afghanistan
to succeed. Karzai has to forswear corruption
- which will require more than a stern lecture
from Obama. And a nation known as the “graveyard
of empires” for its legendary resistance to foreign
occupation would have to experience a sudden change of heart.
It never made sense to think of the fight against
terrorism as a "war" because it’s not possible
to defeat a technique or an idea by force of
arms. Obama should have taken a different course."

As I analyze the economic performance of Presidents,

I just updated my job loss figures, public and
private and they're terrible, no doubt.
But I noticed something:
August preliminary employment -201,000 revised
down to -154,000 for the final.
September preliminary employment -263,000 revised
down to -139,000 for the final.
October preliminary employment –190,000 revised
down to –111,000 for the second preliminary.
In other words, for three months, the Bureau of
Labor Statistics has made headlines with big job loss numbers,
then quietly revised them. Instead of 654,000
jobs lost, there were 404,000 jobs lost in three months.
Given that the average revision has been plus
83,000 jobs, I now expect the latest figure, -11,000 to turn positive upon
Previously, such revisions had been random errors,
sometimes positive, sometimes negative.
Could they now be manipulated? The first preliminary
is always the newsmaker.
"I think the public rightfully is still making
it an issue. I don't have a problem with that. I don't know if I would have to bother

-- all of that is fair game." -- the Alaskan publicity whore, on Obama's birth certificate,
Palin is all for full disclosure - when its about somebody else.
"Palin has never produced Trig's birth certificate
or a single piece of objective medical evidence that proves he is indeed her biological
son. A child with Down Syndrome must have a pile of such records, tests, assessments and ultrasounds
that conclusively prove that he is Sarah's biological son. It seems bizarre to me that neither
the public nor the campaign has ever been given one of them." -- Andrew Sullivan, hay Rethug,

Excerpt: Coburn and Vitter are vehement opponents of the
public option, and they're hoping to prove themselves right by
showing that no senator who's in his or her right
mind would want their healthcare covered by it. They've gotten a
surprise, though: Genuine support for their amendment
from someone on the other side of the aisle -- and a proponent
of the public option, at that -- Sen. Sherrod
Brown doesn't have any illusions about why Coburn
and Vitter decided to introduce the amendment.
"It's clear they just want to score political
points. They hate the public option...they want to introduce

said in an interview with Salon on Friday.
But Brown's a strong supporter of the public option,
and he's decided to co-sponsor Coburn and Vitter's amendment.
Left vs. right is BS. Why pretend to be
Instead of pretending in a fairytale, try to
fight the VULTURE with two wings (left and right),
instead of trying to fit your square peg into
a round hole by always saying BS crap like
“Why do I belong to a party of spineless losers”?
The common man, no matter how strong he vocalizes
his loyalty to a party or to a “wing”,
is a laughable pathetic joke of a used and propagandized
sleeper. There is THEM and there is us.
Get it together dude. Your Eisenhower-era
dream ended a long time ago. You need to rail against
the vulture, not pick some fucking political
wing fable which they keep alive by finding and using sheep like you.
Life is too short to be fucking involved in fables.
Why is it wrong to be involved in religious fables,
but you have no problem with your passion for
the right vs. left political fable?
You think one is more intelligently rigorous
than the other??
HAHA fucking HA. Come off it.

Excerpt: It may well be too late to purge 'teabagger'
from our discourse, certainly from discourse controlled by liberals.
But I'm for giving it a try: for running 'teabagger'
out of town, even at this late date. It is really a lowdown term.
'Tea partier' is a neutral term. 'Tea-party patriots'
is a positive term, used by some of the protesters themselves.
'Teabagger' - not so positive, and not so neutral.
ha ha Maybe you should have thought about what the
word meant before you proclaimed to be one?
It could well be that liberals at large are recognizing
this too. In a discussion at Slate, Sam Tanenhaus wrote,
"Even today the right insists it is driven by
ideas, even if the leading thinkers are now Limbaugh and Beck,
ha ha and the shock troops are tea-baggers and anti-tax
demonstrators." As he told me, he subsequently learned
that 'teabagger' had this vulgar meaning, and
was used as a pejorative. So he changed his text to 'tea-partiers':
'tea-partiers and anti-tax demonstrators.' Much
better, don’t you think?"
No, you guys are tea-baggers until you stop with the birther-handjob
Excerpt: Obama’s escalation of the Afghan War has upset
many rank-and-file Democrats who had hoped for a
more peaceful strategy, but Obama’s order to
dispatch 30,000 more U.S. troops is being welcomed by
neoconservatives, a group that has long favored
U.S. military interventions in Muslim lands.
After Obama’s West Point speech on Tuesday, the
neocons gloated over their success in turning the Obama
administration’s deliberations on Afghanistan
toward an Iraq-like “surge” and away from negotiations aimed at
winding down the eight-year-old war...
To read the neocons celebrating how they had turned
Obama into a more articulate version of Bush in less than
a year in office makes one marvel at both their
remarkable arrogance and their genuine influence in framing the
debates of Washington’s opinion circles...
It also is one of the bitter ironies that the
same geopolitical thinkers who persuaded Bush to enable Osama
to escape and al-Qaeda and the Taliban to rebuild
– now are celebrating their victory in getting Obama to
send 30,000 more U.S. troops to that same country.
Bob, all things considered, wouldn't it have been better to stick to
You spent 2008 mis-reading Hillary's mind, and now Obama is governing
from Hillary's right.
Don't ask, "How did this happen?"
It happened because people like you made it happen.
Excerpt: Obama is not the type of guy who agonizes over
sending soldiers into battle. This isn't Lyndon Johnson, after all,
who paced the Oval Office night after night,
quaffing Bushmill's and dreading the next troop deployment to Saigon.
Obama is more in the George Bush "What-me-worry"
mold. He has no problem clowning around with the same
cadets he'll ship off to the Afghan killing fields
just weeks later. No worries. Maybe, that's why this week's speech
at West Point was such a bust; it lacked the
empathy that one expects from a leader who's sending his fellow
countrymen into war. Yes, there was plenty of
the usual rhetorical fanfare, but nothing that vaguely resembled
genuine concern or--dare we say--compassion.
That's just not part of Obama's repertoire.
Nobody else is saying it so I guess I'll have to: What if Obama knows what he's doing?
There always is that chance, you know.
I admit, I don't see where he's going but he HAD to know his base would
turn on him if he
kept his word about beefing up our forces in the original country who
attacked us, kinda.
But the idea that Obama is giggling in the White House while yelling
"Let the bloodbath begin!" makes everyone who voted for him into a moron and I refuse to go there.
I'm going to stick with Obama until there's nothing left to stick to.
Besides, do you think McSame and Palin would've been a better choice?
People are still comparing Obama and Clinton to mythical "prefect presidents"

Excerpt: A Harvard professor says CNN whore Nancy Grace's
relentless questioning of a Florida mother three years ago
contributed to her suicide, according to a filing
in the family's wrongful death case.
Grace launched aggressive nightly coverage of
2-year-old Trenton Duckett's case shortly after he disappeared in 2006,
usually with a collection of analysts. When the
boy's mother, Melinda Duckett, appeared by telephone two weeks into
the case, speculation was beginning to narrow
on her possible involvement.
Dr. Harold J. Bursztajn, a professor of psychiatry,
wrote that Grace "struck a highly accusatory tone."
The professor saw "a distraught young woman who
is subject to repeated and increasingly sharp questioning
by a hostile interviewer who displays increasing
suspicion and anger towards Ms. Duckett."
The next day, the 21-year-old Duckett shot herself
in the head.
"Her apparently unanticipated public humiliation
on the nationally televised program in question
was a substantial contributing cause of her suicide,"
But CNN gets higher rating with this insane bombtrower and they don't
care who gets hurt..
