Bush rescued the economy?
 Sometimes the best defense is pure horseshit


George W. Bush rescued the economy from collapse, according to Karen Hughes.
She attacked Obama on NBC Sunday, defending the record of her former Fuhrer boss on the economy.

Speaking about Obama's successes, journalist (ha ha) Mark Halperin praised Obama's handling of the economy.
"He's done, I think, an extraordinary job running the government under difficult circumstances. He managed the
economic crisis, kept the world from going into depression," said Halperin.

But Hughes quickly took objection to Halperin's assessment. "I have to disagree with you, Mark, about rescuing
the economy," she said. "I think that happened before President Bush left office when they took the action that they
did on TARP and the banks have now repaid much of that money but that's what stabilized the economy and
prevented the collapse of the financial system."

That crazy ho knew David Gregory and Meet the Whore was the best place to spew that crap.

Will NBC be as radically right-wing under Comcast?

I disagree.
It's not back-stabbing when you have no choice.
Leno had 5 million viewers, Conan lost 60% of them

Red Massachusetts?
 by my good friend William Rivers Pitt


The nature of modern American politics has been off-the-wall weird for a dozen years now.
We've seen a president impeached for lying about sex.

He was accused of that but found Not Guilty by a jury.
It was a jury of whores, to be sure, but the verdict stands.

We've seen another president who was selected instead of elected in an orgiastic festival of Florida
and federal fraud. We saw an administration use the darkest day in our history as an excuse to scare us,
spy on us, steal from us and start false wars in our name. We've seen a vice president go on national
television and advocate the benefits and blessings of torture. We came within an eyelash of seeing the
first woman president elected in this still-misogynist nation, and did see the first African-American
president elected in this still-racist nation.

Those are just the big-ticket items. It is almost impossible to quantify the political mayhem that has
broken loose during the last several years, and after all of it, you start to think that maybe you've seen it all.
How much more deranged can it really get?...

The open US Senate seat for Massachusetts, held since 1962 by Ted Kennedy, could be filled
on Tuesday by an outrageously hard-right Republican named Scott Brown if the voting breaks his way.


If Ted's seat goes Nazi right, will Obama finally get the message?
Will that get him to come to work?
Will that get him to join the fight and stop trying to be nice to the rabid dogs?

"Actually, 'never let a crisis go to waste' should be the Republican motto these days.
  They have been relentless in politicizing every single issue which has made the news.
  And if there is no crisis, they invent one.  Republicans have shifted so far to the right
  they now exist in a world where paranoia is the norm and where demons and bogeymen
  inhabit every nook and cranny of their demented minds. Pathetic does not begin to

Who do you trust?
Not the "Game Change" authors
 by Gene Lyons


After two weeks of manufactured hysteria over the Nigerian "underwear bomber," our esteemed
national political media happily returned to their primal missions: inane partisan bickering, phony racial
controversies, sexual innuendo and adolescent backstairs gossip.

I refer to the ubiquitous publicity attending the release of Mark Halperin and John Heilemann's book "Game Change,"
reportedly an insider account of the 2008 presidential campaign by the largely anonymous aides and consultants who lost it.
Observing virtually the entire "Gang of 500" -- as Halperin's clubby Internet rumor sheet The Note calls its audience
-- going ape over the fool thing you could almost hear them emit an audible sigh of relief.

Enough tedium about healthcare, jobs, taxes, financial regulation and foreign affairs. Back to what really matters to
these fops and courtiers: what Newsweek's Howard Fineman called "tweetable nuggets." As so often happens, Fineman
speaks for them all: "A long analysis of the demographics of the electorate is not going to get you an HBO movie," he said.
"But the tawdry psycho-drama of the Edwards's and a racist crack by Harry Reid will."

Hollywood gossip columnists Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons had nothing on these two.

 Hey, shit for brains, let me explain the difference to you.
 Afghanistan is an ongoing war - what did you want Obama to say about it?
 Ft Hood was a mass shooting - what did you want Obama to say about it?
 The underwear bomber is in jail - what do you want Obama to say about him?

 But in Haiti, every minute counts.
 You have 2M people with no water, no food, no homes and no hospitals.
 That calls for immediate action that will save lives.

Is Sarah Palin a Natural Fox?


Only after Fox News announced that it had hired Sarah Palin as an "news analyst" did I realize that I've been
subconsciously calling her Sarah Fox, Fox Palin, or Sarah Palin-Fox for a while now. She seems to be both
the face that Fox wants to project and the audience it wants to capture: Palin represents the natural next stage
in Fox's evolution from talking heads who pretend to know things that aren't true to those who sincerely
believe things that aren't true.

You could even reverse the order of that old illustration of evolution, that row of amphibian, monkey, and
human figures walking increasingly upright out of the water, to show Fox's development, starting with Shepard Smith,
who really is some kind of journalist, to Bill O'Reilly, then gently moving down through Sean Hannity to Steve Doocy
to Glenn Beck (an amphibian if ever there was one), and ending in Palin, who's all fish.

That strikes me as a smooth progression, or at least it did until I watched her debut last night on O'Reilly.
Her halting and deferential appearance--she even called Bill "the big man on campus"--may actually undercut
her usefulness as a propaganda tool. She seemed nervous with Papa Bear, who was rather snappish.
Opening with a video mash-up of TV personalities calling her an "ignorant rightwinger" who "doesn't know anything"
--meant to outrage her fans, but demeaning nonetheless--O'Reilly then weighed in with direct and often rapid-fire
questions about 'the perception...that you're not that smart.'

If Sarah Palin had a brain she could hold a press conference and answer unsdcripted questions.
But she has no brain so, like Bush, she sticks with her 4-5 sound bite answers and only talks
to people who want her to be seen in the best possible light.

Subject: Grrrrrr

Bart, I'm enjoying BCR Show 161 and I can confirm that only certain teams are allowed to bear arms on a military installation.
You are correct that a bunch of 18 and 19 year old enlistees carrying weapons around is inherently foolish.
When the average GI has live ammo, it is only on the firing range.

It is an odd sight to see two officers and two enlisted men on alert carry two M16s and two side arms into the theatre.
They get special parking by the fire exit and are required to sit as close to that door as possible.
Usually in the rear of the theatre.   It is equally strange to see that on the golf course.
Nobody is going to stop them from their mission.

The reason that I was moved to words is the attached email that is circulating.
It didn't sound right to me so I googled Congressional Pay Raises.
There has not been a vote to increase their pay since 1989.
Their salary increases have been automatic since GHW Bush signed the bill.
  Carl, thrown into a Mexican jail with Bart in 1973

Your  U.S.  House & Senate have voted themselves $4,700 and $5,300 raises.
They voted to not give you a S.S. cost of living raise in 2010 and 2011.
Your Medicaid premiums will go up $285.60 for the 2-years and you will not get the 3% COLA: $660/yr.
Your total 2-yr loss and cost is -$1,600 or -$3,200 for husband and wife.
Over 2-yrs The  House & Senate each get $10,000 raises

Maybe we should demand Amendment 28

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply
equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the
Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."

Election Angst
 by Bo Obama


There's a lot of anxiety at the White House.
People who usually greet me with a smile don't even seem to notice me. I have to keep a careful eye
on humans or they're likely to trip over me. The grumpiest people are those closest to Master, including
David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett and Robert Gibbs. All three of them usually can't keep their hands off me,
but now they're as likely to kick me if I get in their way. As far as I can tell it's all because of some kind
of big election going on in Massachusetts tomorrow. I know it's not the end of the world, but they're acting like it is.

Roger Ailes - Out at FOX News?
 Murdochs said to be "disgusted" with him

     Even his photos are crooked.


Rotund, bald and ferocious, the Fox television boss Roger Ailes is said to have two speeds Ė attack and destroy.
Every night under his watch, millions of Americans are enthused, engrossed or appalled by a lively diet of angry
rightwing rhetoric served up on Fox's rolling news channel. But the heady mix of hectoring, finger-pointing and
liberal-bashing may be proving too spicy even for the strong stomachs of his employers, the Murdoch clan.

Last week, Murdoch's son-in-law, Matthew Freud, delivered an astonishingly public broadside against Fox News.
Freud, a media-savvy London public relations supremo married to Murdoch's daughter, Elisabeth, told the New York
Whore Times that members of the Murdoch family had become embarrassed by Fox's output:

"I am by no means alone within the family or the company in being ashamed and sickened by Roger Ailes's horrendous and
sustained disregard of the journalistic standards that News Corp, its founder and every other global media business aspires to."

So, after 15 years of pure hate, some Murdochs want change?

Democrats, one year later


 If you read this, it will make you angry and it should make you angry.

Obama is becoming politically toxic. The Democratic partyís new icon is the biohazard symbol.

 You'll be tempted to write and tell me, "Bart, that's not the kind of news I like."

 Sure, I could be a brainless cheerleader and say, "Everything is fine, Obama knows
 what he's doing and we're winning" but head-in-the-sand Pollyanna doesn't win wars.

 If we lose Teddy's seat Tuesday, the press will scream,
"Obama is a one-term lame duck president" for the next 30 months.

 Has Obama and his backstabbing Democrats gone so far they can't come back?

Cowboys - Pants on the Ground
 NFL's "best team" scored one field goal


Numb. Shocked. Humbled. Devastated.
That's just a sample of the myriad emotions that enveloped the Dallas Cowboys
during and after their 34-3 smackdown Sunday afternoon by the Minnesota Vikings.
Dallas was yearning to make it to the conference title game for the first time since 1965.

Cowboys coach Wade Phillips later said the abrupt end to the season felt like being in
an elevator that reaches the top floor and then suddenly plummets to the bottom.

Angry Brooking goes after Favre
 He didn't like that fourth touchdown pass


Did the Minnesota Vikings run up the score on the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's ass-whooping?
Keith Brooking thinks so. A late Brett Favre touchdown pass infuriated the crybaby whiner,
who charged over to the Vikings' sideline to voice his displeasure.

If Brooking didn't want Minnesota to score then maybe the Cowboys should have done something about it.
Just because the Cowboys quit doesn't mean the Vikings needed to also.

Aw, poor baby!
Was the winning team not nice when they kicked your ass?

I did a shot of the good stuff when Favre threw that fourth touchdown.

But now Favre has to find a way to get passed New Orleans.


"Whupping the unbeaten New Orleans Saints was greatness.
  Finally, beating the Philadelphia Eagles three times in a season
  was almost as good a Super Bowl win.
     -- Jeff Prince in the Fort Worth Weekly, trying to pretend yesterday wasn't so bad,   Link

 Dallas only scored three more points than I did, and I was in my La-Z-Boy partying.
