"There seems to be a disconnect within the right-wing worldview. They insist that 
  the threat posed by violent is the existential threat facing the West in the 21st century. 
  On the other hand, (they claim Obama-care is the real danger.) It can't be both."
     --  Steve Benen,    Link

 Good point.
 Terrorism is such a threat, we had to sacrifice the Constitution to survive.

 ...but the Democrats' health care plan is worse?

Howard Dean's 2012 Challenge 


Dean can publicly criticize Obama's health care bill as not worth voting for. He's not tied in any way 
to this administration which is looking more and more like the S.S. Titanic-Obama.

That's why Obama spin-meisters immediately struck back hard at Howard Dean after his comments on the senate bill. 
Press secretary Gibbs and others in the administration even went so far as to invoke the Dean-is-crazy theme 

That's a mistake - a BIG mistake.

Dean's having a 'temper tantrum' they have complained in language that calls up images of an unstable Dean...

That was probably the worst non-Clinton slur the media has put on somebody in the last several years.

Why has Obama treated Dean so differently than Lieberman?  Because the Obama-Rahm team 
has never ever, even remotely had any common cause with progressivism or with progressives...
Dean, of course, is a progressive. The Obama White House also recognizes that Dean could be a political threat. 
If Dean wants to, he could primary Obama in 2012.

He'd have lots of advantages. Dean has national name recognition. He can crank up a campaign quickly and attract 
the best people. He's a Washington, D.C. outsider since Obama-Rahm did him the favor of not letting him in on their gig. 
He has the backing of most progressives and liberals, the very people who worked hard to win the White House for Obama.

Is Obama trying to be a one-termer?

They say being president is one of the worst jobs in the world.
But being an ex-president is one of the greatest jobs in the world.

Is Obama auditioning for the world's greatest job?

Tom Steele: Rethugs can't Win 
 He's trying to sell his whore book



GOP Chairman Michael Tom Steele thinks Republicans have "screwed up" for the most part since Reagan. 
And, he says Rethugs won't win back the House in fall elections and might not be ready to lead even if they do.

That forecast of failure sparked a pushback Tuesday at the GOP and delight the Democrats.

Winning back the House would be difficult for Republicans, who are in a 256-178 minority with one vacancy. 
Steele's book, "Why I Hate Being Black," offers his blueprint for the party's resurgence. 

Asked Monday by handjob Hannity if Republicans can regain the House, Steele said, "Not this year." 
He added: "I don't know yet, because I don't know all the candidates yet. We still have some vacancies 
that need to get filled, but then the question we need to ask ourselves is, if we do that, are we ready?"

Steele said: "Our candidates have to be anchored in these principles ... because if they don't, 
they'll get to Washington, and they'll get drunk with power and throw the steps out the window."

ha ha

This Tom guy is fun to slap around.

How long can he keep his job?

Subject: Iran

I agree that Iran would be a major threat if it had nukes.  
I'm just not sure a blockade would be the answer.  

You mean there's a chance I'm not Dick Cheney?

US Customs, as far as Iranian imports go, has sanctioned Iran for years.  

It would be my guess we've asked our allies to deal less with them - that hasn't worked.

The only things that can be legally imported from Iran are carpets, pistaccio nuts, and some other damn thing.  
In fact, wealthy Iranians here import carpets to get their money out.  
So, we could stop that, but what will happen when a ship of a country that does business with Iran gets stopped by our ships?  

Like a lot of "debates" we have, we never got to explore the idea because most people chose to attack.
We never had the torture debate, either, because of all the knee-jerking.
We stopped doing live debates because a majority of responders agreed with 
some guy who said there was no difference between our soldiers and al Qaeda.

Why do liberals often argue with their jerking knees?
Why can't our side debate instead of scream insults at our friends?
Why can't we have adult debates on these subjects?

I don't know much about war or blockades, I was just floating an idea.
At first glance, I'd say let the rugs and nuts go thru but not the giant oil tankers.
If we disrupted their oil shipments by 1/3, that would cripple them financially.

Also, Russia has been doing business with them for years, and we couldn't close that border.  
Stopping their access to materials is a good idea, I just don't know if it is feasible.  
We might just have to rely on our new heavy duty bombs on their nuke facilities.

That's what I'm trying to avoid, but yes, it might come to that.
Thanks again for the radio.

Thanks for the fresh air.

"We are not safe. We are in much greater danger than we were a year ago. The North Koreans 
  had an additional year to build missiles. Iranians had an additional year to develop their nuclear 
  weapons and keep paying for terrorists. Al-Qaeda had an additional year." 
     -- Gingrich, who knows we didn't have those problems until Bush created them,   Link

 Those countries weren't building nukes when Clinton was in office.

 But Bush's military contractor contributors couldn't make much money in peacetime
 so they financed the war-monger's campaign and look at the billions they made since.

"Get well soon, Rush!"

Why do Rethugs Hate Avatar? 
 They hate everything - why should this be different?


To say that the film has evoked a storm of ire on the right would be an understatement. Big Hollywood's John Nolte, 
one of my favorite outspoken right-wing film essayists, blasted the film, calling it "a sanctimonious thud of a movie so 
infested with one-dimensional characters and PC cliches that not a single plot turn, large or small, surprises.... Think of 
'Avatar' as 'Death Wish' for leftists, a simplistic, revisionist revenge fantasy where if you freakin' hate the bad guys 
(America) you're able to forgive the by-the-numbers predictability of it all."

John Podhoretz, the Weekly Standard's film critic, called the film "blitheringly stupid; indeed, it's among the dumbest
movies I've ever seen." He goes on to say: "You're going to hear a lot over the next couple of weeks about the movie's 
politics -- about how it's a Green epic about despoiling the environment, and an attack on the war in Iraq.... The conclusion 
does ask the audience to root for the defeat of American soldiers at the hands of an insurgency. So it is a deep expression 
of anti-Americanism -- kind of. 

That's why 35 million Americans have paid to see it in three weeks
 - in Bush's horrible recession, no less - because it's anti-American?

When Mel Gibson was raking in all that socialized church money with his boody mess of a film,
you guys said it was "the marketplace at work," but this much-bigger movie hates America?

Subject: RE: Healthcare American style 

This is old data, but seeing as none of the right wing talking heads will so

Mike Malloy Live

Whore CNN Strikes Again

Watching CNN "American Whore Morning" Wednesday, they're making a BIG DEAL 
out of the allegation that the AARP has lost 150,000 members over health care.

The bastards got a swirling, fiery graphic that spelled out 150,000
and they want you to think that's one goddamn big-ass number.

"People are angry about this health care bill," John Roberts whined.

So I did some checking (seriously) and it turns out AARP has 35,000,000 members.

Then, to pretend to cover their ass, as they were closing out the story, after your heard 
the shocking headlines and went on about your day, the sons of bitches said, 
"Actually, AARP has GAINED two million members."

You lying, crooked whores!

CNN is in the business of lying to their viewers?

After screaming about the tremendous losses AARP had suffered, 
after showing some angry tea-bagging handjobs screaming at the TV cameras, 
after giving out the false impression, after the story has done the damage
after making a BIG DEAL out of the "serious loosses" AARP has suffered,
you admitted in closing that AARP is up 1300% in new members
compared to the "hit" they took from the anti-science, tea-bagging handjobs.

Why scream about the lost 150,000 members, 
then whisper that they're up 2,000,000?

Fuck CNN, you lying sons of bitches.

Their goal is to destroy our chance for better health care.
We must assume Time-Warner is making a profit off the mess we have for health care now.

Glenn Beck - 2009's Biggest Douchebag 
 Palin must've been a close second 


Beck falsely claimed "only 3 percent" of stimulus plan would be "spent in the next 12 months. 
Beck aired false claim that a union needs only 30 percent support from employees to be "established."
Beck falsely claimed average UAW worker makes $154 per hour.
Beck falsely asserted that U.S. does not fingerprint foreign visitors or collect rapists' DNA.
Beck falsely claimed Iowa marriage ruling "is actually about going into churches.
Beck echoed falsehood that ACORN received stimulus funds.
Beck falsely claimed Obama said he doesn't want health reform protesters to "do a lot of talking."
Beck reported fake murder story from ACORN video as fact. 

Funny he'd want to touch that since Glenn Beck raped and murdered a girl in 1990. 

“Glenn Beck murder” and “Glenn Beck rapist” are now the top finds

Kathy Griffin Banned From CNN  
 She's too honest for that whore network 


Kathy Griffin has lost her visitor's pass after dropping the f-bomb on this year's show. 

Following her semi-sort-of F-bomb-dropping New Year's Eve hosting gig, whore CNN has decided 
Kathy Griffin will NOT be getting a 2011 invite. "She was a total embarrassment to the network. 
Even Anderson Cooper, her co-host thinks it's time to say goodbye to Kathy," a CNN insider tells me.

Not only did she semi-sorta drop the F bomb on live TV, she also made not-so-funny jokes about 
needing a "bump" of cocaine and asked Cooper if he pleasured himself while looking in the mirror. 
As sexy as the Silver Fox is ... that's just too much, Kathy.

She was funny as hell and CNN knew what they were buying when they signed her.
Besides, Kathy made it to the top of the heap by being banned - that makes her dangerous
and that makes her funny and daring and that's why people watched CNN on New Years Eve.

Like whore ABC banning Adam Lambert "for life," this ban might last a few months.

Subject: Iran

Why is nuclear war guaranteed should Iran get the bomb?  

I think it's obvious.
So does Israel.
So does this White House.
I think everybody sees it as a slam-dunk - except those who don't like Israel.

How can Iran test a nuke without tipping it's hand?

You test it in Tel Aviv, silly.
If it doesn't go off, you haven't tipped anything.
If it does go off, they all get their virgins

If Iran is suicidal enough to attack Iran, (Did you mean Israel?) why do they need nukes?  

Oh, I dunno - to pay them back for 6,000 years of perceived oppression?

Your arguments are entirely unconvincing, Bart,

I fully understand that it's a nobody-wins argument 
which is why I ussally avoid the senseless, friendship-killing trap.

The GOP's Tea Party Challenge
 They split the Rethugs into two lesser parties


Tea is the new Kool-Aid for Republicans. And a lot of candidates and officeholders on the right are drinking 
from it like a fire hose. And they tend to be some of the bigger media magnets in the party - like Sarah Palin and 
Jim DeMint, who’s hitting the headlines over his bid to block a Transportation Security Administration nominee.

Much of the media and most Democrats are dismissive of what is truly a grassroots movement. But the Tea Party 
has shown remarkable energy in its short life span - dating back about a year ago, when CNBC commentator 
Rick Santelli went on a live-TV rant about mortgage policy and suggested a Chicago Tea Party.

The Tea Party crowd is unlikely to actually become a third party. But their ability to leverage energy
behind candidates and policies could be very similar to what has accomplished on the left.

But it's not the same - has sane people.
The bigoted, religiously-insane tea-bagging handjobs can't even explain what they stand for.

Breckenridge could inspire other ski towns
 to legalize pot and make a ton of extra money


While Pitkin County and Aspen have long had a reputation for a casual approach to drug enforcement, it may be Durango 
that is the next Colorado ski town to legalize adult possession of up to an ounce of pot and the paraphernalia used to smoke it.

A group called Sensible Durango is preparing to put a ballot question in front of Durango voters in November 2010.

"We're pretty confident it will pass like it did in Breckenridge," said Corey Chavez of Sensible Durango. 

That Durango-Silverton train is a lot of fun when you're baked.
