It is NOT an insult to question the Bush bastards about 9-11.
They did everything they could to de-rail the 9-11 Commission.
They even appointed Lee "WhiteWash" Hamilton to cover things
up and they got
worthless slugs like John Kerrey to ditto every lie the commission

Excerpt: David Broder, perhaps the biggest douche at the
Whore Post, had a devastatingly unremarkable assessment of
Sarah Palin the other day. Her speech at the
Tea Bagger convention in Nashville "showed off a public figure at
the top of her game - a politician who knows
who she is and how to sell herself." She used the televised occasion
to "display the full repertoire she possesses."
Palin is not only "the most visible Republican in the land," she has also
"locked herself firmly in the populist embrace"
and mastered "a pitch-perfect recital of the populist message that has
worked in campaigns past." Broderís conclusion:
"The lady is good."
"I'm such a worthless
Broder wasnít analyzing Palin's positions or accusations,
or the truth or falsehood of her claims, or even the nature
of the emotions that she appeals to. He was reviewing
a performance and giving it the thumbs up, using the familiar
terminology of political journalism. This has
been so characteristic of the coverage of politics for so long that it
seem in the least bit odd, and itís hard to imagine
doing it any other way. A couple of weeks ago, the Times ran a piece
by its lead political reporter, Adam Nagourney,
about a Republican strategy session in Hawaii: "Here in Honolulu, the
strains within the party over conservative principles
versus political pragmatism played out in a sharp and public way,
especially as the party establishment struggled
to deal with the demands of the Tea Baggers."
The structure of the sentence, and of the article,
puts the emphasis entirely on tactics and performance. This kind of
prose goes down as easily and unnoticeably as
a glass of sparkling water, with no aftertaste. Readers interested in
politics drink quarts of it every day without
gaining weight. And Broder and Nagourney are at the top of their game.
The Washington Whore Post and David Douche Broder exist to excuse Republican
mistakes and crimes.
The same is true for the New York Whore Times and the networks, talk
radio and the cable bastards.
The Democrats (and the people) are not represented in the media and
This whole thing with Cheney basically admitting
he authorized torture reminds me of Iran/Contra
and how our whole concept of justice has been
eroded. I was just out of high school when Iran/Contra hit,
and although I was very politically naive then,
I remember at least being encouraged that Congress was
holding hearings and investigations, and for
a while there it seemed like the bastards might actually be held
accountable for their crimes.
But then reality set in, and although the Reagan/Bush
thugs were clearly guilty of numerous high crimes
they pretty much all got away scot-free. Now
most of them are back in positions of power and/or are
FAUX news paid propagandists. But hey, at least
we had hearings, right?
Nowadays we get nothing- big surprise. Not feeling
so naive anymore.
But keep swinging that hammer anyway!
Maybe someday someone in power will take a lesson

Excerpt: It's possible that Sarah Palin's best quality
is that she has none at all. She exists for her friends and enemies
as a fantasy figure. For the left, she is a harbinger
of the hard-right government takeover they fear is coming.
And for the right, she is the leader -- all instinct
and no sophistication -- that they knew would someday lead
America out of its current socialist wilderness.
The pity for them both is that in reality, not to mention the polls,
she sorely disappoints...
The lady from Alaska is a phony. She has
sold out for money, quitting office so that she could cash in.
She asserted her small-town bona fides, her antipathy
both to the establishment and the mainstream media
-- and then got herself a ghostwriter, a booking
agent and a (Fox News) network contract. She is rich, famous
for the metaphorical 15 minutes Andy Warhol allotted
us all and, elbows swinging, is forging her way to oblivion.
She was neither a threat (the left) nor an opportunity
(the right), but just a fantasy -- until the American people
turned the lights on.
A Palin presidency would be a Bush-sized disaster for America but it
sure would be
a never-ending gold mine for people who make their living mocking the
Excerpt: Conservatives love to bash academia as little
more than an elitist welfare state, a plush cushion to soften
the landing for people who canít cut it outside.
Tenured radicals and left-wing nuts don't want to work,
so they sit around sipping chardonnay and lounging
among dusty old volumes by Chairman Mao.
Itís easy to forget, then, that there is also
a right-wing academia, to which fallen conservative stars of various
sorts retire. A reminder came over the long weekend,
with news that former Grand Inquisitor -- ahem,
Special Prosecutor -- Ken Starr has taken a new
job as president of Baylor University.
Starr, who has been dean of Pepperdine Universityís
law school since 2004, is a long-time star of the
right-wing legal firmament. He was appointed
to the DC Circuit Court of Appeals by Ronald Reagan,
and became solicitor general under Herbert Herbert
Bush. Baylor, where heís now moving, is a very
conservative Baptist institution. (Rather ironic,
isnít it, that its new president is possibly most famous
for authoring a quasi-pornographic legal brief?)
Ken Starr never had to pay a price for his crimes - spending $100M trying
to try to come up with
a crime they could poin on Clinton. Since Clinton committed no
crimes, Starr was unable to do so.
They're lucky the Democrats are too scared to invetigate the REAL criminals.

Excerpt: The consensus of the Washington press corps,
following the abdication of Evan Bayh, (D-Quitter), displayed the unreality
of "objective" reporting -- and showed again
that the fruits of bipartisanship are bitter. Nearly every mainstream news
or analysis echoed Bayh's claim that he valiantly
represented the sensible center in a capital where the "extremes" dominate
both parties, preventing needed compromise and
frustrating his profound urge to "help people." In other words, the far-left
Democrats and the far-right Republicans, marching
lockstep against the middle, are the enemies of progress, decency and
the American way.
But is it true, as Bayh suggested, that Senate
Democrats have rejected the counsel of moderates and centrists with the
same partisan ferocity as the Republicans? No,
it is blatantly false --and journalists who have observed the politics
Obama administration's first year ought to have
realized that instantly -- and said so.
Did the "strident ideology" of the left dominate
the crafting of the Senate healthcare reform? Not unless Sen. Max Baucus,
Bayh's fellow centrist and friend of insurance
lobbyists everywhere, is now to be considered a socialist. The White House
legislative operation, overseen by Rahm Emanuel,
a deep-dyed blue dog and Bayh's kindred spirit on the DLC, entrusted the
president's healthcare promises to Baucus. As
a result the public option was duly jettisoned, with the collaboration
liberal and progressive in the Senate, down to
the only actual socialist, Vermont's Bernie Sanders. If that alone was
sufficiently "pragmatic," the Democratic leadership
then sold out to conservatives on reproductive rights, solely to ensure
that Ben Nelson (D-Backstabber) and Rep. Bart
Stupak would be happy. The entire healthcare reform effort by Democrats
in both houses was shaped by the imperative of
placating moderates, conservatives and any Republican who might sign on
(although none did).

Excerpt: Sen. Kissyface nearly became the first person
in history to be the VP nominee for two different parties,
but it turns out, he claims one reason he embraced
McCain in 2008 is that no Democrats asked for his help...
Heilemann and Halperin write:
"New Hampshire is going to be everything for me,"
McCain whined. "And a lot of independents are going to
vote in the primary. I want to ask if you'd think
about giving me your support. If you can't, I'll understand.
You're in enough trouble with your party already,
but I know it would help me out a lot," McCain begged.
"Give me a couple of days to think it over," whore
Lieberman replied. "It's a big step, but you know how I
feel about you. We've been through a lot together
and particularly on the war."
Lieberman talked with his friends, family and
staff and one person told him he was crazy, but added that
McCain's campaign would not last very long so
it would be a short endorsement, according to the book.
And here's the kicker:
No Democratic candidate asked for Lieberman's
endorsement, not even his fellow Connecticut senator, Chris Dodd.
For all the distance between him and his party,
Lieberman still found that level of ostracism surprising - and painful,
Number One, nobody asked you for help because
you're the Kiss of Death.

Excerpt: In a country where more than eight in 10 people
regard themselves as religious, it takes more than
a little guts to preach about a world without
God. But that's the message that is creeping across America,
spreading ripples of dissent in its wake.
From Tampa to Sacramento, billboards have been
cropping up with messages that run across the grain
of America's normally devout discourse. "Don't
believe in God? You're not alone!" were the first posters
to be put up. "Being a good person doesn't require
God," read another.
The billboards are the work of a national group

Excerpt: "I was a big supporter of waterboarding,Ē Cheney
said on This Whore Sunday. He went on to explain that
Justice Department lawyers had been instructed
to write legal opinions to cover the use of this and other
torture techniques after the White
House had settled on them.
Cheney picks out the banks he wants to rob, then
orders the "justice" Department
to rule that bank robbery is perfectly legal
at certain times and in certain locations.
Section 2340A of the federal criminal code makes
it an offense to torture or to conspire to torture.
Violators are subject to jail terms or to death
in appropriate cases, as where death results from torture.
I believe the number of murdered Gitmo detainees
is between 100 and 200.
Prosecutors have argued that a criminal investigation
into torture undertaken with the direction of the
Bush White House would raise complex legal issues,
and proof would be difficult. But what about cases
in which an instigator openly and notoriously
brags about his role in torture? Cheney told Jonathan Karl
that he used his position within the National
Security Council to advocate for the use of waterboarding
and other torture techniques. Former CIA agent
John Kiriakou and others have confirmed that when
waterboarding was administered, it was only after
receiving NSC clearance.
Hence, Cheney was not speaking hypothetically
but admitting his involvement in the process
that led to decisions to waterboard in at least

Excerpt: I first heard the idea of John Cougar Mellencamp
running for the Senate in Indiana when The Nation
advocated this on MSNBC, and I wholeheartedly
agree. This is a truly inspired idea. John Mellencamp
would make an outstanding and even brilliant
United States senator and represents exactly the spirit and
soul the Democratic Party should stand for.
John Mellencamp is one of the great artists of
our age. And John Mellemcamp is one of the great advocates
of small-town America, of the kind of "square
deal" for Americans that Teddy Roosevelt once championed.
He is a voice for working people and a champion
of farmers who puts his talent, his body and his money
behind his words. Mellencamp has long been a
great champion of the Farm Aid cause and concerts,
along with the extraordinary leadership of his
friend and a truly great American, Willie Nelson.
Indiana has many fine Democrats who would make
good Senate candidates, but John Mellencamp
is unique, one of a kind, a voice for the people
who believes America needs a new brand of politics
and new kind of leadership in the Senate.v
I like the idea, too.
He doesn't have to worry about getting his name out there and if someone
if he qualified all he's gotta say is, "I'm
way smarter than Sarah Palin."
