"I'll never stop fighting for you.  
I'll never stop fighting to bring jobs back to (Ohio). 
I'll never stop fighting for an economy where hard work is rewarded, 
I'll never stop fighting for policies that will help restore home values, 
I'll never stop fighting to give our kids the best education possible;
I'll never stop fighting to give every American a fair shake. 
I'll never stop fighting to protect you from the kind of deceptive practices... 
I'm fighting for a tough Consumer Financial Protection Agency. 
I'll never stop fighting to open up government. 
I'll never stop fighting to cut waste and abuse in Washington;

I'll continue fighting for reform that will hold the insurance industry accountable."

Karl Rove & Jeff Gannon - lovers?


Gawker suggests that with his wife out of the way, Rove “can finally gay marry Jeff Gannon, in Argentina.”

Gannon was the fake reporter who was mysteriously given a pass to sit in on White House press briefings 
to ask right-wing softball questions for two years. He was eventually unmasked as a Republican plant — which 
would have been filed away as business as usual for the Bushies, except that this plant had a second career as 
a male prostitute whose nom de ho was Bulldog. 


Looks like the Bush administration was all homosexual lovers all the time.
Was there no straight sex in the White House for eigth years?

"Air America is gone. I got a lot out of AA during the dark Dubya years. But they switched 
  to an all-Obama, all-CDS format, and that's when I said adios. If I want to hear endless chants of 
  'Clinton bad, Clinton bad, Clinton bad' I'll turn on cable news. They alienated much of their audience. 
  Now they're gone. The lesson: Clinton-phobia can be a fatal disease."  
      -- Joseph Cannon,    Link

 Air America told thousands of Clinton lies in 2008.

 Maybe theye were owned by the right-wing, after all.

Subject: Obama 

Obama never was a leader, he's a facilitator. Read his book "Dreams of my Father". 
His entire career as a community organizer was based on representing the weak against 
the strong and never having leverage. He had to compromise constantly to get a park here 
or a job training center there. 

Now he has a hammer but has no idea how to use it. 
He can be taught but this takes a lot of time grasshopper.
 Joe in Hawaii

I could teach him how to say, 
"Blow me, that's not going to happen.
  And if you challenge me on this I'll cut your legs off" in mere minutes.

Paul Harvey, FBI Tool

He was an FBI target whose network bosses fretted about whether he should be fired.

Paul Harvey's FBI file shows how his relationship with the bureau evolved from perp to pen pal. 
The file illuminates how the FBI cultivated one of the nation's most perverted horse molesters by not 
only providing flattery from its most prominent officials but also by secretly putting words in his mouth.

Harvey frequently gave the FBI advance copies of his scripts and columns, seeking information and advice. 
The FBI obliged, even writing portions of Harvey's commentaries for him.

I always knew he was a crooked bastard and a liar in a party of liars.

Coakley won the Hand Count 
 But those Diebold machine say Brown won 


You have a right to know that Coakley won the hand counts there.

That's right.

According to preliminary media results by municipality, Martha Coakley won overall 
in its hand counted locations,* with 51.12% of the vote (32,247 hand counted votes) 
to Brown's 30,136, which garnered him 47.77% of hand counted votes. Margin: 3.35% lead for Coakley.

Massachusetts has 71 hand count locations, 91 ES&S locations, and 187 Diebold locations, 
with two I call the mystery municipalities (Northbridge and Milton) apparently using optical scanners. 

Coakley spent who knows how many millions trying to get Ted's chair
but her team didn't bother to see if the vote would be counted correctly.

Democrats - we can't learn.

Note: Best thing ever happened to GOP voting is Bev Harris, the "Democrat" 
who acts so crazy when she says they rig elections - but she can't say how.
This might be coming from her so who knows if it's true.

"Mr. Gibbs and I had quite a conversation off the air the other night. I told him he was full of shit

Subject: Pigboy's ratings 

While Rush may be one of the most listened to individuals, a look at the numbers shows some interesting things.

In Fresno, Rush typically has 9-11% of the 25-54 year old Average Quarter Hour radio audience, 
which is more than any of the other 75 plus radio signals reaching the Fresno market.  However if you look 
at the inverse of that number, you'll see that Rush has about 90% of the radio audience that does NOT listen to him.

Also. here is a set of typical ratings  numbers.

Age group      Percent listening to Rush
12-17                  0.05
18-34                  3.6
25-54                  10.1
45-54                  13.3
50-64                  18.3
55-64                  19.5
65-74                  22.0
75+                     31.8

Meaning the closer you are to senility or death, the more likely you listen to Rush.

It's like religion - as you get older, you get more scared so you look for someone 
who can constantly reassure you about the things you know deep down aren't true.

Subject: New Israel?

I live in southern Arizona.  It is a beatiful place.  
We have lots of racial diversity, mostly between whites and latinos.   

The one thing we don't need is a bunch of hypcrite jews coming in here 
and taking over in the name of their false god, jehovah.  

They can stay where they are, over there in Palestine, 
where they can go on killing and being killed until the end of time.  

Please leave southern Arizona out of it!
 Arizona Native

Wait, let me get this straight:
You're OK with Mexicans (who are Catholic, mostly)
but you draw the line at Jews with their false God, Jehova.

So Arizona is for those who believe in the real God?
And people worshipping all those other false gods should stay away?

What about Blacks - are they allowed in?
What about Krauts and Wops? Or, Koresh forbid, the Irish?
What about Haitians?
What if you're a Mexican Jew who no longer believes?

Then we have the gays - is there room for them?
What about stupid people, or people with too many freckles?

What about a gay Mexican with a Jewish wife who passes for Italian?

Do you have a heirarchy chart?
I'd love to see where you put the Puerto Ricans.

Subject: just one more thing

Dear Bart,
Bubelah.  I sense I touched a nerve, and then a quick internet search let me know (at least 
according to the bastion of learning; Wikipedia) that you are an ardent anti-Zionist and tend to 
piss off your liberal Democrat Jewish readers by suggesting that the Israelis all move to Oklahoma.  
Oye, if only that opportunity had been offered to them earlier. 

Wikipedia doesn't say that - it says, "Bart criticizes Zionist Jews for putting 
a higher priority on their "sacred sand" than on the lives of their children."

Look here - wikipedia got it sorta right.

I didn't criticize "Zionist Jews."
I criticized anyone who'd chose religion over their child's safety.

 "I'm not going to have sex (She means AGAIN) until I'm married.

Twelve hours driving alone...

That's why Friday's page was kinda short - I had a lot of driving to do.
Being alone on the road gives you lots of time to think about things and I, 
as you'd expect, came up with a bunch of good ideas!

Obama's numbers are still falling and he still seems to not get that he's in serious trouble
but if he ever gets it, I have an idea that could be a game-changer for him, and us.

Obama should announce that he's going to do three town halls and the only people 
allowed to attend are crazy-ass teabagging handjobs and right-wing Rethug fuckstix.
Oh, and every fourth question would be from a FOX News pundit.

Make the town halls long, too - maybe three hours each.
Give every ass-wipe teabagger a chance to ask his idiotic question.

Here's the trick:

Obama is a cool and calm guy and he can answer any question they ask.
But you just know it's going to devolve into a wild, screaming monkeyfest.

They'll scream "Fuck you, nigger, get out of our WHITE House" and bedlam 
will break out and the Secret Service will have to whisk Obama away to safety

Once that happens, America will see that the violently anti-Obama handjobs
can't be reasoned with and he'll gain some sympathy points from sane folk.

Plus, he can then announce that the next two town halls are cancelled because there's 
no pleasing a pack of screaming, crazy teabagging handjobs and he has a new platform 
from which he can dismiss all this bi-partisan crap because now, as everybody knows, 
you can't reason with a pack of barking, rabid dogs.

It's another fool proof idea from Bartcop.

At worst, the teabaggers will act polite, and ask polite questions and Obama will 
reply with true and accurate calmness and they might actually learn something.

But you just know it's going to get out of hand and that's where he scores BIG.
It will prove to the national TV audience that it's the crazies who hate him.

Winning is easy - you just have to try.

...ain't nothing to it.

How Obama lost his way
 by Bob Parry


Obama spent his first year in office trying to reassure the Washington/New York establishments that he 
was not going to upset their apple carts too much, that they shouldn’t panic, that he would – despite all 
the speeches – be more about continuity than change.

And he succeeded. The big banks were pulled back from the brink; the auto industry survived; the stock markets 
rebounded; a new Great Depression was averted; the national security elites praised Obama’s more nuanced rhetoric 
as he continued many of George W. Bush’s war policies..

Yet the first major political judgment on Obama’s “responsible” behavior came from Massachusetts 
when a little-known right-winger was chosen by the voters to fill Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat.

It turned out that what Obama had accomplished politically in his first year was to associate 
himself and the Democratic Party with the widely despised national establishments.

Discount Airline Tickets

Let's try this again because I need to raise some money:
It didn't work before, probably due to my ineffective salespitch.

This would be perfect for two people needing a sudden, expensive flight.
If there's two of you and your flight is sudden and expensive this is perfect for you.

If you're in Los Angeles and you have to take a sudden trip to New York
even Southwest is going to slam you for $1900 and I could save you, say, $500.

If you're in San Jose and you have to take a sudden trip to New Orleans
Southwest is going to slam you for $1700 and I could save you, say, $400.

I've given/traded tickets before so I know this works.
But it's only for a sudden, long trip for two.
If you're in Austin and need to get to Dallas for Cinco de Mayo, this deal's not for you.

Somebody's going to suddenly have a need for a pair of tickets.
I can help and save you money..

Manchurian Candidates
Court allows China, others stake in US elections
 by Greg Palast


The Court's decision is far, far more dangerous to U.S. democracy. Think: Manchurian candidates.

I’m losing sleep over the millions - or billions - of dollars that could flood into our elections from ARAMCO, 
the Saudi Oil corporation’s U.S. unit; or from the maker of “New Order” fashions, the Chinese People’s 
Liberation Army. Or from Bin Laden Construction corporation. Or Bin Laden Destruction Corporation.

Right now, corporations can give loads of loot through PACs. While this money stinks (Obama took none of it), 
anyone can go through a PAC’s federal disclosure filing and see the name of every individual who put money into it. 
And every contributor must be a citizen of the USA.

But under today’s Supreme Court ruling that corporations can support candidates without limit, there is 
nothing that stops, say, a Delaware-incorporated handmaiden of the Burmese junta from picking a 
Congressman or two with a cache of loot masked by a corporate alias.
