"I didn’t campaign on the public option."

A few Senators lied to us


We didn't win the public option campaign was because a few Senators lied to us. 

Back on May 21st, there were only 28 Senators in support of a triggerless public option.  
Through your tireless participation in a whip count effort, by October 8th we raised that number 
to 51 when Jon Tester came out in support.  By October 30th, when Evan Bayh said he wouldn't 
filibuster, we were up to 56 Democrats for cloture on health care reform with a public option.

From that point, the only four Senators we still needed all lied to us in one form or another.  
Both Mary Landrieu and Blanche Lincoln signed a document stating that they supported a public option, 
only to reverse their positions.  Blanche Lincoln's website still comically claimed she supported a 
public option even as she was declaring her opposition to one on the Senate floor.

The liars should be punsihed, but we don't punish the backstabbers in our party.
That wouldn't be nice, and Democrats are all about being nice..

"I don't know that there's a senator that doesn't have something in this (HC) bill that isn't important to them.

Subject: Chris the Screamer and Unka Dick Cheeeeeney

I saw the show when it first happened. It was about a month ago. 
He started pronouncing it that way and then told a guest the reason for doing so 
was that he just found out that's the way it's actually supposed to be pronounced. 

He also stated that he will be saying like that from now on because it's the correct way. 
I'm guessing he's right since he made such a big deal out of it. 

Hope this helps. 

Tom, you did good, but Matthews is an idiot.
He can't decide how Cheney pronounces his own damn name.

Subject: Chris the Screamer and Cheeeney

In an interview several years ago, as well as on his show once some time ago, 
Lynn (Stepford) Cheney told him that the way the family pronounced it for years 
(according to old grandpa) was "Cheeney".  After he came to Washington, the elites 
who are so well educated started calling him "Chaney", and it stuck.

There is video.

Liz lies to make Mathews look bad, as he is a "liberal" (HA!).

Andy Williams, teabagging whore 

Seems like for 50 years I've heard Andy Williams sing,
"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and I liked it.

But then this year we find out that Andy Williams is a birther-crazy religio-handjob.
Yeah, he said Obama was a Muslim fraud, out to destroy America, something like that. 

Why would an entertainer say something so false and so stupid?

When Natalie Raines of the Dixie Chicks said "I'm ashamed of Bush," that was a fact.
Nobody on the planet can say Natalie Maines lied when she said she was ashamed that 
America's president caused the deaths of thousands (some say a million) innocent people.

But Andy Williams is totally lying when he says Obama is a destroy-America Muslim.

So, after 50 years of  "I like the guy," now it's become 
"Fuck you, Andy Willams, teabagging birther whore."

Aim for March.  By April, the snow gets dicey.  
If you're lucky, you'll snag March just after the rates drop but with a good snowfall to boot.  

What about the week after Spring Break?
Or maybe the first week after the prime Winter rates drop?

Only problem is all the damn families up for Spring Break.  
Last I was in Breckenridge, it was March, but everyone was from OK or Dallas or something.  
Hanging out in the hot tub was still a rush, and if God's flowers were part of the deal, I'l probably never had made the flight home.

You can go for April; I know you're a bettin' man, but these aren't the best odds.  
Pretty soon you can saddle up for skiing in Argentina instead.

Mike Malloy Live

Subject: Clinton 

He signed Gramm, Leach Blilley into law.
He signed NAFTA into law.
He got rid of welfare as we know it not for corporate America, but for poor, struggling people.
He let sanctions continue to slaughter hundreds of thousand of Iraqi children during his two terms.
He rushed back to Arkansas to watch Ricky Rector be put to death.
He was watched like a hawk by the right wing crazies yet he had sex with "that woman" which got
him impeached and destroyed what was left of his presidency.
He was so weakened he could barely campaign for that wimp Al Gore and the rest 
is the sad, pathetic history of the last decade.
If he would have stood up to the lunatics who beat him up for nominating Kimba Wood 
and not caving he might have shown them that he had a spine...but n-o-o-o-o! 
He's a Dem and a wimp.
Hillary has much more testosterone than he ever had!

You're missing the point.
Until you can point to a more successsful modern Democrat, he's the best.

You want a president who does everything the way you'd do it.
That's not going to happen.

Blackwater $$$ in Afghanistan 
 Weren't we promised change?


Obama just can't quit Blackwater.

A Blackwater official told the Commission on Wartime Contracting Friday that the company has contracts 
for security as well as for training Afghan police and a "drug interdiction unit."  They are also in the running for 
more work in Afghanistan. The comments of Blackwater President Fred Roitz were first reported by the Virginia Pilot...

Now, the Pilot reports on the potentially expanding role Blackwater will play for the DoD in Afghanistan:

Blackwater is also is one of five pre-qualified companies competing for a new DoD contract to train Afghan police.

Bart, you wrote:

> What's wrong with two former presidents not being openly hostile to each other?

Were you kidding when you said it was OK for Clinton to be act like buds with the leader of the BFEE? 
GB is the scummiest of scum, the lead psychopath of a large family and group of international psychopaths! 
Clinton shouldn't allow himself to be seen on the same CONTINENT with these dark creatures! 
I'd rather have the dead come to life and chase me down to eat my brains than to allow the world 
to consider me anything close to friends of these monsters. 
The Bushies are actually as close to Nazis as we have seen anytime before or since Hitler, 
and I believe they were actually a part of the NAZI crime and that war as well. 
And it's OK for decent men to chum with them like buds???
I hope you regain your mental balance long enough to have a nice Christmas!

"Former presidents" is probably the smallest, most exclusive club in the world.
They have four members, and you think they should be more hostile to each other?

If Clinton wants to say, "Wassup my nigga?" to Poppy Bush, what's the harm?

"I worry that a lot of the (HC) reforms won't go into effect for five years. A lot of it, it turns out, 
isn't just because big reforms take a long time to enact but largely because the delay is helping keep 
the cost down within Obama's promise of a deficit neutral bill. That strikes me as a potentially 
disastrous tradeoff since that will leave Dems running in 2010 and 2012 on reform legislation 
that hardly anyone's got any benefit from."

 Is there a way to place bets on the Democrats screwing things up?
 It's more certain than death and taxes - why does our side bungle things so constantly?

 And if you have shit insurance or no insurance now,
 what good is it knowing in the coming years things might get better?

 All it takes is another sleepy, bungled Demo campaign and President Palin will erase every gain 
 we've made, gains that never went into effect because Obama said, "Let's wait five years to begin."

 How did I get in this party?

 This is 100% Obama's fault.    He has failed to lead, A, then he went on vacation in August, B, 
 which allowed this year's Swiftboaters to turn the nation against the Democratic agenda, and C, 
 turning his administration over to the likes of Glenn Beck, Kissyface and Max Baucus.

 I may have to stop saying, "Obama is a smart man."

Oklahoma Crazies Blocked 
 Private medical records won't be online


Oklahomans who believe in a little thing called the "right to privacy" can breathe a big sigh of relief, for now. 
Late Friday, a judge extended a temporary restraining order against a bill that would publish online extensive 
details about women's abortions. Now, enforcement of the law will be set aside until a February 19 hearing on 
its constitutionality, thanks to a lawsuit by the Center for Reproductive Rights. In a press release, staff attorney 
Jennifer Mondino said the organization is "very pleased with today’s ruling" because "women in Oklahoma 
should not have to jump through hoops to access legal medical care."

The loathsome law, which we've written about before, requires women to fill out a highly personal 10-page 
questionnaire before they terminate a pregnancy. In particular, the cross-examination focuses on the reason 
for the woman's decision to have an abortion.

Hey Bart!

Due to my current financial circumstances, there's no way I should be thinking about such a risky financial venture.  
Except I remember that a pokerfest (even if you're not in the actual tourney itself) is a great event to socialize with 
fantastic people, and in the end just about the cheapest vacation there is.

So - sign me up, dude!  When are you planning on doing this?

(: Tom  :)  the Pillar in Pontiac

Tom, good to hear from you.

If Obama Was a Liberal...

If Obama was a liberal he would have embraced mandates from the beginning, understanding that they go 
with the public option, which is the only way to offer choice to people while cutting costs. He didn't. 

If Harry Reid was a liberal we'd have a better bill, because he wouldn't have played Let's Make a Deal host, 
with the biggest winner the insurance companies. If Speaker Pelosi was a liberal she wouldn't have invited 
religious leaders into the room to craft language that takes rights away from women we won through the law decades ago...

If we had a liberal in the White House who understood the middle class at all, maybe we wouldn't be giving the 
insurance companies a guaranteed new group of customers without any choice at all. If we had a liberal Congress, 
they would surely know that once the insurance monopolies have their new Fish Meet Barrel customers there 
really is no incentive for them to do anything for them.

You can't shoot for greatness if you won't use all of your powers.

Prayers For Byrd To Die
 Christians are crazy, who said it first?  


Our small tea bag group here in Waycross, we got our vigil together and took Dr. Coburn's instructions and prayed 
real hard that Sen. Byrd would either die or couldn't show up at the vote the other night," the C-Span caller said.

"How hard did you pray because I see one of our members was missing this morning. Did it backfire on us? 
One of our members died? How hard did you pray senator? Did you pray hard enough?" he continued, his voice breaking.
