Bill Clinton on Haiti relief
  by Joe Conason


Officially, Bill Clinton is the U.N. special envoy to Haiti, and in that post he is already deeply involved in the
international relief and reconstruction effort for that devastated country. Unofficially, Clinton is the global
"master of disaster", a position he has occupied ever since the Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina.
So if he is suddenly appearing everywhere again in the wake of the earthquake, that should come as no surprise.

Behind the scenes, however  -- or at least when most Americans were paying no attention to Haiti -- Clinton has
been working  steadily to improve conditions in Haiti for a long time. Over the past several years, his Clinton
Global Initiative has served as a platform for the most effective development and rebuilding projects on the island.
When the current crisis abates and reconstruction resumes, Clinton’s foundation is certain to remain at the center
of efforts to bring sustainable  water, energy, education,  health and  economic resources to the Haitians.

Hey Rachel, why would a rich racist spend so much time helping poor Black people?

Subject: Iran and tall tales

 of their alleged nukes;

You have backed off noticeably from the Iran nuke meme in recent pages, thanks,
I did think you may give this a read for further depth on the topic.

I haven't backed off of anything.
It's my opinion that all sane people are worried about Iran getting nukes.

Can you name someone we all know who's certain they aren't close?

Wait, let's make that anyone within 700 miles (striking distance) of Iran.
It's easy to say, "There's no problem" when you're 11,000 miles away.

Maybe Pat Robertson is right


Haiti was forced to pay France for its freedom. When they couldn't afford the ransom, France (and other countries,
including the United States) helpfully offered high-interest loans. By 1900, 80% of Haiti's annual budget went to
paying off its "reparation" debt. They didn't make the last payment until 1947. Just 10 years later, dictator François
Duvalier took over the country and promptly bankrupted it, taking out more high-interest loans to pay for his corrupt
lifestyle. The Duvalier family, with the blind-eye financial assistance of Western countries, killed 10s of thousands of
Haitians, until the Haitian people overthrew them in 1986. Today, Haiti is still paying off the debt of an oppressive
dictator no one would help them get rid of for 30 years.  The rest of the world refuses to forgive this debt.
So, in a way, maybe Robertson is right. Haiti is caught in a deal with the devil, and the devil is us.

Subject: Diff between CNN and FOX

I was at the gym and watching the TV's reporting on Haiti this morning as I worked out.

At one point on FAUX they had a banner that said "What is the Death count?"
at the exact same time on CNN they had a banner that said "How many can be rescued?"

I couldn't believe the radical difference in views.
I thought that is exactly the difference between a Rethug and just about anybody else.

Subject: Obama is very clever

Hi Bart,

The events in Haiti are devastating, and our hearts go out to the Haitian people.

Obama is amazing.  He has actively directed the American response, and I am pleased
to report that he has assigned two representatives to work on providing aid to the people of Haiti:
William J. Clinton and George W. Bush!


By making a point of assigning our two previous presidents to lead the relief efforts,
a perfectly natural thing to do, Obama has made both of them part of a single issue, inviting comparison!
Now the world can see the difference between a true, intelligent, caring statesman and a debauched frat boy.
This kind of leadership is what makes Obama special.

Never on the attack, he is deep and intelligent enough to let nature take its course,
with an occasional tweak here and there. Who knows how this will turn out?
Have either of them learned from Katrina?
Let's keep an eye on the Giggling Murderer's efforts to help the people of Haiti.
Kindest Regards,

"I want to say to the kids out there watching, you can do anything
  you want in life ...unless Jay Leno wants to do it, too."
      -- Conan, attacking Leno on Wednesday night's show

 Why is Conan attacking Leno?
 Leno doesn't decide NBC's schedule.

 I heard that they were feuding, but why?


 When you get fired from a job, there's a reason why they escort you out of the building.
 You can't have a disgruntled employee answering the phone and stuff because you
 never know what they'll say or do to get revenge for being fired.

 But, NBC signed a contract that says Conan gets $40M if he
 doesn't get to host The Tonight Show, so NBC is stuck with bad options.

 Too bad NBC didn't have the brains to accept victory.

 Watch Letterman discuss the Leno-Conan problem.

Pigboy: Obama will use Haiti
 to boost credibility with ‘dark-skinned’


"In the Haiti earthquake, in the words of Rahm Emanuel, 'we have another crisis simply too good to waste,'"
the child rapistt remarked. "This will play right into Obama's hands, humanitarian, compassionate."

"They'll use this to burnish their, shall we say, credibility with the black community, in the light-skinned and
black-skinned community in this country," Pigboy added. "It's made to order for them. That's why he
could not wait to get out there. Could not wait to get out there."

Why is the child rapist mocking Obama's willingness to help?
Doesn't it remind everyone how Bush ignored the drowning "darkies" in New Orleans?

"You could just wait a few days – Rush – until
  you know you can run your fat mouth about it then."
     -- Imus

"Very large Haitian community in South Florida. You would assume
  he’d have a little more compassion about all of this." 
     -- NBC's Chuck Todd, expecting compassion from the vulgar Pigboy?

"The insensitivity is stunning, the words are deplorable...It's indefensible." ."
    -- Joe Scarborough (R-Dead Intern)

"Rush's words are deeply insensitive, no doubt about it. I think the President speaks
  for the country when he stands up there...I think Rush’s comments were cynical." ."
     -- Pat Buchanan

"They will be apologizing to Limpballs by this afternoon. You don’t dare
  cross the boss of the repiggie crime syndicate without retribution." 
     -- evanenital

"Someone should tell Rush that the Dominican Republic is right next door to Haiti.
  Without his favorite Dominican under-aged male brothels he’ll have to go to Hawaii."

James, is that the best you can do?  Grunt a "fuck you" at me?
Why am I not allowed to have an opinion?

Are you claiming she didn't lie about Clinton?
Or are you saying she told the truth and the Clintons are racists?

I usually like Rachel, but she was a lying little shit in 2008 - you can't pin that on me.
If she can lie about our only double winner and slander him with phoney charges of racism
then I'm allowed to tell the truth about her.  Shame on Rachel Maddow for lying.

Chuck Norris, wacko handjob


“I have no doubt that Interpol will become Obama’s secret vault for terrorists’ criminal records and evidence
- and whatever else he and his Cabinet want to place in there,” Norris concludes. It is, he adds, “just one more
example of the way your federal government has got the backs of those who are attacking our country, abandoning
our Constitution and dissolving America’s sovereignty,” said the former bad actor.

Now for a little reality check:

The Interpol office in New York does indeed get an exemption from the Freedom of Information Act under Obama’s order.
But there is nothing sinister about that. The office has files on suspected terrorists provided by the law-enforcement agencies
of its member countries—and those agencies would be loath to share them if they thought their internal reports (including the
names of informants, the transcripts of wiretaps, and other confidential evidence) might be made public. (If you think that’s
unusual, try filing a FOIA request for FBI or DEA files on their current criminal suspects.)

Of course, Norris had no problem with Bush shredding the Constitution, but then, Bush is white.

Subject: Say it ain't so, by Dan D

Dear Bart,

Enjoy your column, but was disturbed to find Dan D's bizarre and
anti-Semitic letter with only a very brief comment by you in response.

The brevity of your response lends an air of affirmation to what are
very inflammatory and discriminatory statements by Dan D.
If that was your intention, then I am surprised, indeed shocked....

Maybe you're a new reader, but I don't get into that never-ending mess.
Both/all sides over there would rather fight than live so I don't get involved.

Paranoid Palin vs Beck


Beck: She said, 'I’m just preparing now.' And I said, 'What do you mean?' And she held up her BlackBerry,
and she said, 'Oh I, I’m wondering why you have me here at the Statue of Liberty.' And I said, 'Cause it’s a symbol of trust'...

And she said, 'So you’re not going to ask me about the 25 windows?' And I said, 'The 25 windows? What are you talking
about the 25 windows?' She said, 'The 25 windows, come on, don’t play with me. 25 windows, they stand for the different
minerals.' And I said, 'You could be making that up right now, I have no idea'...

And she said, 'So the seven points?' And I said, 'What points?' She said, 'The ones on her hand. You know the crown.'.
And I said, 'No, we’re not going down that road.' And she just looked at me like, 'Um hm.'

And I turned around and I walked out for a minute and I come back and she’s still Googling.
Now she’s googling, now she’s googling Ellis Island. Her shields were so high.

Worrying that Glenn Beck might "go off" is the smartest thing I've heard about Palin.

Subject: GOP bastards

This pretty much makes it official.

If there were any doubts that so called "conservatives" have become the sworn enemies
of the human race, the titular head of the GOP, Vulgar Pig Boy Limbaugh, has dispelled any doubts.

How low has the GOP sunken?

What kind of sub-human garbage has infiltrated this formerly venerable American Political Party
and turned it into nothing but a cesspit for the most deranged, venal and demented vermin in society?

It's like I've said many times.
The Republican Party is no longer a political organization.
It's a diagnosis for an appalling character defect.
It's an organized cult that attracts the lowest criminally insane filth into a coordinated
phalanx of ignorance, hate and delusion spewing psychotics who wrap themselves in our flag.

Good people have been doing nothing in the face of this grotesque disease for too long.

Subject: Douche Blitzer

I was just watching CNN. What an asshole Wolf Blitzer is.
As he was talking to an on the scene reporter in Haiti, Wolf asks;
"Are you hearing any screams or cries for help from the rubble of the buildings?"

Yeah, Wolf why don't you get some microphones in the rubble
so you can broadcast the "screams and cries for help".
What a jerk!
 Jon in Ohio

Subject: Douche Blitzer

TV news just disgusts me. The night of the earthquake, CNN was doing their best to cover the breaking story.
I figured I'd check the other stations. There was Bill O'Reilly putting the moves on Sarah Palen, pundit,
and over on MSNBC somebody was gushing over Nancy Pelosi. I went back to CNN and soon to bed.
The next night, I turn on this idiot Wolf Biltzer. He's interviewing a reporter live on the scene and Wolfie
interrupts the reporter to remind us that CNN has more reporters on the ground than any other network.
Thanks Wolf, I was wondering. He interrupted virtually every report to remind us that CNN is numero uno in cable news.

Next Wolfie went to a piece from Anderson Cooper, up in a helicopter. The screen filled with a still closeup picture
of Anderson Cooper in the helicopter wearing a headset. You're in a copter flying over  an earthquake and you don't
point the camera out the window?? Cooper's picture stayed on the screen for most of the report. If you had a digital
camera capable of transmiting that picture, why didn't you transmit a few of the scene below? Anderson Cooper
reminded me of George W. Bush on the aircraft carrier.

How about this Sanji Goopta nut....or whatever his name is. He had the president of the country live on camera.
It was probably the first time the guy has been seen alive and Goopta starts chatting him up about where he's
going to sleep tonight. No mention of the thousands of other people who have nowhere to sleep tonight.
No questions about where people might go, is the airport open, is the government running?
What do you need? Do you want to say anything to the world? No....where are you going to sleep tonight.

I'm stuck watching CNN but it's terrible. I can't watch FOX and MSNBC always seems to be interviewing
Pat Buchanan about health care or some other boring crap.  If my life is ever ebbing away, I hope CNN is
not there to ask me questions and remind me that they have the most reporters on the scene.
