It Didn't Have To Be This Way
 ...but with Democrats, failure is all we can expect
   by Chris Weigant

      "We're the worst and we're so damn proud of it!!!"


The epic struggle for healthcare reform is entering its final days in Washington. And the Democrats (being Democrats) 
have managed to snatch political suicide from the jaws of legislative victory. But, I keep thinking, it didn't have to be this way. 
If we had had some real leadership from two key Democrats named Obama and Reid, we wouldn't be where we are now.

A shot of Chinaco for Chris Weigant for telling the plain, simple truth.
Obama has refused to come to work and Reid is a total failure at everything.
Obama could've used his influence to shape this legislation and he could've used his 
presidential powers to force it thru - but he went on f-ing vacation, instead - Kerry style.

Democrats have now positioned themselves so that they will lose politically, no matter what happens in Congress 
in the next few weeks. Well, I should qualify that by saying there's a slim chance for a better outcome than the one 
that appears inevitable at this point, but that chance is rapidly disappearing as the calendar dwindles between now 
and the real deadline for a signing ceremony -- President Obama's State Of The Union address next month.

The storm of stupidity
Climate change deniers fight against science
   by Gene Lyons


So what's next? A series of essays by Sarah Palin about the Large Hadron Collider and the mysteries of dark matter? 
An MIT lecture series by Rush Limbaugh regarding the thermodynamics of black holes? A Festschrift of Sean Hannity's 
scholarly articles on plate tectonics and volcano formation? Glenn Beck performing live heart-lung transplants on Fox News?

Everybody understands that these things couldn't happen. That when it comes to serious scientific endeavor, years of study 
and professional apprenticeship are required. In a word, expertise.

Ex-beauty contestants, drive-time DJs, TV sports announcers, hairstylists, newspaper columnists -- basically anybody 
whose math skills topped out in the 10th grade -- rarely have anything substantive to add to the sum of technical and 
scientific knowledge. That's what they most resent about it.

It's not impossible that such persons could educate themselves sufficiently to have an informed opinion, but it's rare.

But once again, the Democrats - with the facts on their side - can't figure out how to debate.
When the Rethugs say, "the poles are not melting," the Democrats say, "I respect your opinion."

If the Dems had half a brain cell between them (should I bother to finish this sentence?) they could
at least carry this picture around and flash it when they say, "Global warming is a hoax."

A hundred years ago, Robert Peary discovered the North Pole.
Rethugs would tell you he sailed there in a fucking boat - but he didn't.

This is how Peary got there but today you can take a Carnival cruise there.
So why can't the idiot Democrats win this argument?

Because they have no Bartcop in them.

Subject: the Afghan threat

Losing control of the oil pipeline that runs through Afghanistan is the threat.

The power that comes with control of that pipeline is way above Obama's pay-grade.  He's doing what he's told to do.
The only question would be - is Obama an unwitting stooge... is he a willing participant...
or is he simply caught between a rock and a hard place?  I don't suppose it matters - he's doing what he's told.
The only thing I'm sure of is that he is smart enough to know what the hell is going on here.

Those are facts that need listing too.

This is more than a compromise.  This is collaboration on a deal that kills more soldiers, and more civilians
to protect an asset of the Global Elite.  This is an outrage - and would be from a Republican President as well!

To hell with Obama coming to work.  When are the people going to come to work and demand that our
representatives represent our best interest - instead of the interests of thieves?

Bart - I've written you this many times, and I'll say it again.  Poppy Bush wrote NAFTA...
Clinton signed NAFTA.  Dumbya stole the land for that pipeline... and Obama is protecting it.
This is professional wrestling Bart.  The Big Dog and poppy are pals.

There you go again - comparing Clinton to some perfect, mythical president.
And what's wrong with two former presidents not being openly hostile to each other?

Christian Handjobs go Postal
O'Reilly defines Koreshmas for the ditto-sheep


If it's December, then there must be frost in the air, gingerbread in the oven, and ... right on time, Bill O'Reilly and the
other defenders of Christmas bemoaning the prevalence of "Happy Holidays" - rather than "Merry Christmas" - greetings.
There's a war on Christmas, O'Reilly recently reminded viewers, driven by those who "loathe the baby Jesus."

This season, a holiday-dÉcor company is marketing the CHRIST-mas Tree, a bushy artificial tree with a giant cross
where the trunk should be. And Focus on the Handjob is continuing its Stand for Christmas campaign to highlight the
offenses of Christmas-denying retailers. The campaign was launched, according to its website, because "citizens across
the nation were growing dissatisfied with the tendency of corporations to omit references to Christmas from holiday promotions.

Democrats can't even win this non-argument.
The GOP is so devoid of any substance, they plant their flag on 'They-Hate-Baby-Jesus' hill

Seriously, couldn't a drunk Okie with an IQ of 64 do better?

Democrats' Blues Grow Deeper
 Are Dems unfit to govern?


Less than a year after Inauguration Day, support for the Democratic Party continues to slump, amid a difficult 
economy and a wave of public discontent, according to a new WhoreStreet Journal/NBC News poll.

The findings underscored how dramatically the political landscape has changed during Obama's first year. 
In January, despite the recession and financial crisis, voters expressed optimism about the future, the new president 
enjoyed soaring approval ratings, and congressional leaders promised to swiftly pass his ambitious agenda.

In December's survey, for the first time, less than half of Americans approved of the job Obama was doing, 
marking a steeper first-year fall for this president than his recent predecessors.

Also for the first time this year, the electorate was split when asked which party it wanted to see in charge 
after the 2010 elections. For months, a clear plurality favored Democratic control.

The survey suggests that public discontent with Mr. Obama and his party is being driven 
by an unusually grim view of the country's status and future prospects

I saw a poll last week that said 44% of Americans want Bush back.

...sure would be nice to see Obama come to work.

Wouldn't it be great if this toon wasn't true?
Why has Obama turned his power over to Kissyface?

Subject: Politics or Treason?

People like to describe what the Republicans are doing as politics but that's not the word I would use.
I call it treason.

All they are proving is that it's easier to destroy America than it is to fix it. All one has to do is
look around at the way the country is today and know that it was the Republicans that did it to us.
I think it's time to call it like I see it.

When you are out to make America fail, it's treason.

Subject: Pokerfest Breckenridge


Due to my financial circumstances, I could never make any of the previous Bartfests
despite especially wanting to go to Chicago and Vegas.

Breckenridge is almost at my back door...within driving distance. Count me in if you would have me.
I will likely bring my own booze and food (others may want to as towns are expensive),
and of course I will try to bring some flowers of my own. I look forward to finally meeting folks
with a similar mindset as myself.

Also, I loved the mention on Olbermann.
I recognized the reference right away. Kudos!

At these Fests, that feeling of being with like-minded people is great.
You can speak freely without worring about "being caught."

Plus there's the poker, the legal herb, the Chinaco etc.

Subject: Majority of 51

Hey Bart,

Please address the issue of passing progressive legislation in the Senate with a majority of 51 votes!

The Dems won the 2008 election and have clear majorities,, why can’t the majority rule with 51? 
Why does the minority GOP still dictate legislation?
 Jack in Alabamastan

Jack, basically you're asking, "Why does the bully take their lunch money every day?"
and the answer is "because he can."

The Democrats have no desire to win - they just don't have the fire in their bellies.

When Bush was brealing ther law and killing thousands of soldiers, every Democrat told us,
"They have the majority - we can't stop them."

When Obama won, the Rethugs slammed the brakes on everything (that Kissyface didn't block.)
We found out in 2009 that ANY senator can block ANYTHING he wants, but the Democrats 
refused to use that same veto power under Bush because they're scared bunnies.

The only time the Democrats find a spine is when they're attacking each other.

Sickening, isn't it?

 Subject: Congratulations for being on "Countdown"

Hey BC,

Finally, somebody in the mainstream media was polite enough to quote you while they were stealing from you.

So in 13 years, w/sometimes 60 subjects perday, I said something worthy one time?
In 2000?   :)

I'm sure you know by now that (yesterday, I think) Keith Olberman quoted your long-ago response to the
old wingnut whine that the media is 'liberal' and that poor widdle conservatives can't get their message out.
It was great to see Keith use your words and style, and even greater to se him actually gave you the credit for them.

But how long must KO or his staff have been reading to just now use something from long ago?
Have they been perusing back issues?

One thing is for certain:
We don't have to wonder anymore whether TV pundits are reading your page and stealing from you.
We now have first-person proof.
You ought to be flattered when a writer as good and a democrat as passionate as Olberman
turns to YOU to hear his feelings expressed. I'm sure proud of you.

Now, if we can only get the Democratic Party as a whole to listen to you.

Not gonna happen - they enjoy losing too much.

I worry that the effort and pressure and creative demands (and small returns) of continuing to put out
your page and your radio shows are eventually going to burn you out. I can't stand that thought.
That's why I hope you quickly become better known, more influential,
more listened to and much wealthier from doing what you do.

That way, I'll be pretty sure you'll...


Congratulations! You EARNED your way onto national TV!

P.S. I'm up for a Colorado PokerFest, if one happens.

Ray, I think a Breckenridge Pokerfest/Tequilafest is a done deal.
It'll be great to see you again.

I had some experience with legal weed, but the story didn't fit on BCR 160.
The idea of legal weed blows my mind.

Pissed Off About Health Care Reform
 by Bob Cesca


I'm pissed off.

I'm pissed off at health care reform. I'm pissed off at this endless process of emotional highs and lows 
and exhilaration and dejection and history and infamy.

I'm pissed off that Obama "thanked" Kissyface even though he nearly killed health care reform this week. 
I'm pissed off at Joe Lieberman. I'm pissed off at his childish, vengeful, opposite-day hackery. I'm pissed off 
at his giant pie-shaped head and his passive aggression. I'm pissed off that he enjoys government-run Medicare 
benefits while opposing government-run insurance for the rest of us.

I'm pissed off at the Senate. The whole Senate. The rules, the senators, the color of the walls, the fact that a doof 
like Chuck Grassley can actually be elected to it. Multiple times. I'm pissed off that even though we finally have a 
60 seat supermajority, it's dysfunctional and Harry Reid is in charge of it. I'm pissed off that senators of both parties 
receive government-run primary care from the Office of the Attending Physician, while denying it to everyone else.

I'm pissed off at cable news and the establishment press for focusing more on Tiger Woods than health care reform.

I'm pissed off at Rahm Emanuel and I'm pissed off at the "scary profane a-hole" mythology that's built up 
around him, and how he only seems to use his powers of intimidation to bully the left.

Every story has the same angle:
We lose because we're scared and stupid and we fight each other - not the enemy.

How did I get stuck in a party of lame-ass surrender monkeys?

Feingold: "Obama Blew It"


Russ Feingold announced that he would support the Senate's final version of health care reform. But in doing so 
he cast blame for the loss of a public option for insurance coverage partially on the president's shoulders and urged 
congress to re-insert the government-run plan back into the legislation during conference committee.

"I've been fighting all year for a strong public option to compete with the insurance industry and bring spending down. 
I continued that fight during recent negotiations, and I refused to sign onto a deal to drop the public option from the Senate bill. 
Unfortunately, the lack of support from Obama made keeping the public option in the bill an uphill struggle
Removing the public option from the Senate bill is the wrong move, and eliminates $25 billion in savings. I will be 
urging members of the House and Senate who draft the final bill to make sure this essential provision is included.

A shot for Russ for telling the truth.
