   Hannity is one of those guys who, if his

"Just to get the left all wee-weed up and to get their heads spinning, I'm going to keep doing it."
     --  Sarah Palin, on why she writes on her palm,     Link

 The bottom line is, Sarah Palin is dumber and more classless than Bush.

 Each time she does something super-stupid, like writing her speech on her hand, the GOP is going to say
"That's proof that she's real people like you and me" but deep down they know she's a meth head.

MMA Rumors

Obama pleads with Democrats
 That's probably his single biggest problem


Support from his own party in doubt, Obama summoned more than a dozen Backstabbers to the White House,
pleading and begging like a terrified child, trying to get them to put aside their qualms, seize a historic moment and
vote for his massive health care overhaul.

It's the opportunity of a generation, he told them — and a chance to revive the party's agenda after his rough first year in office.

In back-to-back meetings in the Oval Office and Roosevelt Room, Obama urged these Backstabbers to focus on
the positives rather than their deep disappointment with parts of the bill. The Backstabbers said Obama assured them
the legislation was merely the first step, and he promised to work with them in the future to improve its provisions.

It's official - he hasn't learned a thing after 13 months in office.
Repugs and Dems both realize he's a pushover and they now they've begun to feed off of him.

I'd say at this point it's safe to assume he's not going to change.
Since last summer I've been saying there's still time to turn things around - but now I don't know.

Obama is still unable to wrap his brain around the idea that he's the President of the United States.
He's taken the role of a drunk girl at a frat party and now they're passing him around.
They're using him while he smiles and says, "What else can I do for you?"

Obama is our "pretty please" president when we need a president who says,
"We ARE doing this and I'll f-ing crush you if you try to stop me."

Oh, this is ugly and we have no choice but to watch it happen.

I need a drink and it's not yet 9 AM on a Friday morning.

Why I defend Toyota


With the outbreak of hysterical media lynch mobs now blaming Toyota for just about everything except fat cops,
there is a strong temptation to just wait out the madness.  After all, I don't own Toyota stock, they don't give me
any advertising money, and I don't work for their lobbyists.

If there is one thing that occasionally bothers me about driving a 14-year old Lexus is how MUCH attention and
fussing is lavished on the owner/driver.  "So THIS is how the rich live," I would marvel when I first got mine.
There is no human on earth who deserves to drive such a car--including me.  The IDEA that Toyota doesn't have
sufficient concern for their customers is literally beyond absurd.  The IDEA that they would deliberately endanger
their customers is beyond

I got to thinking... what about those Black Boxes on each Toyota?

Toyota keeps tight hold on its ‘black box’ data
 by a writer without a name, published by the Whore AP


Toyota has for years blocked access to data stored in devices similar to airline "black boxes” that could
explain crashes blamed on sudden unintended acceleration, according to a review of lawsuits and interviews.

ha ha
That reminds me of the old National Enquirer... "Close friends of Brad and Angelina are saying..."

The Whore AP found that Toyota has been inconsistent — and sometimes contradictory — in revealing
what the devices record, including data about the brake or accelerator pedals in a crash.

By contrast, most other automakers allow much more open access to information from their
event data recorders, commonly known as EDRs.

Since it's the Whore AP and since a feeding-frenzy is underway, questions need to be asked:

From whom is the data blocked?

If that data is subpoenaed, I assume Toyota complied.
If it wasn't subpoenaed, the judge must've ruled that the data had no value.

So from whom is the data blocked?

Why is the Whore AP painting Toyota as uncooperative?
Because Toyota doesn't want to share their data with GM and Chrysler?

Does McDonald's share in-house data with Burger King?
Does CBS copy their internal memoes to ABC?

Then there's the inconsistent and contradictory accusations.
The Whore AP wants you to come away from this thinking Toyota is guilty.
Does the unsupported allegation that other companies allow more access make Toyota guilty?

The whore AP also found that the evil Toyota:

Has frequently refused to provide key information sought by crash victims and survivors.

Oh really?   They told a judge to fuck off?
You'd think that would've made the papers.

I wonder what the truth is?
The Whore AP is waving some McCarthy papers in their right hand.
I wonder what they have hidden in their left hand?

Uses proprietary software in its EDRs. Until this week, there was only a single laptop
    in the U.S. containing the software needed to read the data.

I'll bet they have enough laptops in America to please every judge in every suit against them.
If they are defying the orders from multiple judges, why haven't we heard about it?

How could the Whore AP know - for a fact - that Toyota only has one laptop?
If they heard that from a Toyota official, why didn't they quote him by name?

Why is the Whore AP working so hard to make Toyota look guilty?
Why can't they just list the facts and let the indictments fall where they may?

• In some lawsuits, when pressed to provide recorder information,
Toyota either settled or provided printouts with the key columns blank.

What a crock of shit.
That sentence is written like the writer learned his trade at FOX News.

In SOME lawsuits?
That suggests in SOME others that they didn't settle.

When GM settles a lawsuit, is that proof of their guilt?
When Ford settles a lawsuit, is that proof of their guilt?

No, but when Toyota settles a suit, it's because they're guilty.
At least the unnamed Whore AP ghost-writer didn't call Toyota officials "dirty lying slants."

Why is the Whore AP working so hard to make Toyota look guilty?
Do you see any facts in this story concerning Toyota?

Deep Throat taught us to follow the money.
If the American whore media is successful at bringing down Toyota,
who will gain financially from this wild feeding-frenzy of non-facts?

Buried deep - in the second last sentence of the story, we finally get one fact from the Whore AP:

Lawsuits in California and Colorado accused Toyota of
withholding key information in accident cases, but no
judge or jury ruled against the company on those allegations.

Well, what do you know?

I'll bet they were gambling that you'd only read the first few paragrpahs or maybe half
the article because if you stick aound long enough, you see their get-out-of-jail card.

They tell you a dozen lies and - as they're closing - they whisper that it was all bullshit.

And even if you're the top man at the Detroit Autoworkers Union,
aren't you insulted that the Whore AP is lying to you this way?

If everyone agrees that Toyota is guilty,
can't we skip the investigation and skip 
the trial and just start the executions?

Subject: Is Obama eliminating the competition?


The Obama administration is also enforcing food and drug laws (and other consumer protection statutes)
after 8 years of them being ignored.  Do you think he is on a crusade to destroy, say, Nestles Foods?
 Mike in Cheney

If Obama took control of Kraft Foods and if Nestles was the biggest and most respected food company
in the world that suddenly had a lot of quality control problems, we would at least have to ask, right?

I don't really think Obama is doing that because it's too bold a move for a man that polite,
but if someone else made that charge against him, I wouldn't know how to defend against it.

Tom Steele on damage control
 Is this an excuse to fire the Black guy?

   "This is a high-tech lynching..."


Rethugs scrambled Thursday to control damage caused by an internal party document that
caricatures Obama as the Joker and stokes fear of socialism to raise money in a critical election year.

The presentation reveals the blunt appeal to emotion that both parties use to motivate donors and prefer
to keep private. But its release online and consequent cable chatter became an unwelcome distraction for
Republicans, because the strategy it outlined fit squarely with Democrats' portrait of the GOP as the party of "no."

Wait - if they got caught, why does the story need the OPINION that Democrats do it?

"Cheney was arrested today for robbing a bank and everyone
  knows how much Democrats like robbing banks."

Too bad we can't get straight, honest news from America's whore press.

Subject: Republicans counting on voter's short memory

The Republicans seem to be counting on the voters having a short memory this election year.
They don't want you to remember that Republicans were the ones who crashed the economy.
They don't want you to remember that Republicans started two wars that we are still paying for.
They don't want you to remember that bank bailouts (TARP) happened on their watch.

Republicans are now going to start using fear to distract voters from the fact the the Democrats
are succeeding in turning America around and reversing the damage of the Bush administration.

The question for the voters this year is, "Do you really want to bring back the same party that
caused the recession in the first place?"   It doesn't make sense to return power to the party of Bush.

If only the Democrats would list the facts.

The teabagging handjobs are insane with rage over that blue ink
but they have NO PROBLEM with Bush's ocean of red ink.

Bush borrowed $1.8 trillion dollars from China
and the Saudis to give the super-rich more money
and that ended up crashing the economy.

Obama's trying to create jobs and they f-ing
hate him for being "loose" with their money.

Thanks to One Citizen for the graphic.


"There are two good signs for the Democrats: One is all this blowup happened 10 months
  before the election, not 10 weeks before the election. Two, the average American believes
  that better times are ahead. Those are two important indicators. Now, there are plenty of
  indicators that aren't so good, but I think a month is a huge lifetime in politics, so I think
  we're actually going to do a bit better than people are predicting."
     --  Howard Dean, saying there's still time for Obama to realize that he's the president,    Link

 Do you think he means it?

 Or is he just trying to give us hope?

Subject: How gay is Bush?

You forgot Bush had a roommate in college Victor Ashe also gay and Skull & Bones as well.
(They say the S&B initiation entails lying in a coffin naked with a fellow bonesman???)
Ashe was appointed Ambassador to Poland.

Funny, when Obama appoints a gay ambassador, assholes like Inhofe always block it.
Why did they allow Bush appoint his gay lover?

And don't forget Jeff Gannon the male prostitute who sat in on many Bush press conferences pretending
to be a journalist asking "easy" questions and who visited the WH over a hundred times.
  J D

I believe Gannon visited the White House over 200 times, but since Bush is a Republican,
the whore press covers up the truth and fabricates lies about the Democrats.

"Every election in America this fall will be a referendum on this issue. You ignore the overwhelming
  desires of the American people at your own peril. This is politically toxic in the extreme."
    -- Mitch the Bitch, offering advice to the Democrats on how to win in November,   Link

 Hey Mitch, shove your advice up your ass and then go sit on a steeple.

 You guys are in a panic because Obama just might get some health care reform passed.
 If we get that and America realizes you bastards did all you could to protect insurance companies
 at the expense of American families, the next election might look a lot like the last two.

Another Vatican Gay Sex Scandal
  Can't they stop for five minutes?


The Vatican was today rocked by a sex scandal reaching into Pope Benedict's household
after a chorister was sacked for allegedly procuring male prostitutes for a papal gentleman-in-waiting.

Angelo Balducci, a Gentleman of His Holiness, was caught by police on a wiretap allegedly negotiating
with Thomas Chinedu Ehiem, a 29-year-old Vatican chorister, over the specific physical details of men
he wanted brought to him. Transcripts in the possession of the Guardian suggest that numerous men may
have been procured for Balducci, at least one of whom was studying for the priesthood.

The explosive claims about Balducci's private life have caused grave embarrassment to the Vatican,
which has yet to publicly comment on the affair.

Gee, just think if Toyota was 1/1000 this guilty.

 This will make headlines for a day and people will say, "It was just this one time,"

Subject: sports analogies...

Bart, I love your sports analogies. Here's one.

It's the end of the first quarter and we are getting slaughtered.
That's because Obama keeps handing off to Joe Lieberman who then runs it back into the end zone for a safety.
His other go-to guy, Harry Reid, keeps handing the ball to the nearest opponent every time he gets his hands on it.

Obama seems flummoxed because the opponent always seems to be 2 steps ahead of him. But that may be because
Obama handed his playbook over to Karl Rove before the game with the promise that he wouldn't take a peek at it.
What a loser!

By the by, did you see that Obama just recently renewed KBR's contract in Iraq for billions of dollars?

I thought we were done in Iraq!!!!
Didn't he make a campaign promise about Iraq? Never mind....

Keep up the good fight. Will send some cash when I get a chance.

Shannon's Story: Health Care
 and Our Need for Cultural Healing  by Cynthia Boaz


Just over one year ago, my then 37 year-old sister-in-law was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia
called AML (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia). Her subtype carries an especially poor prognosis and her only hope,
we were told, was a bone marrow transplant. Fortunately, her brother was a match, and on September 3rd of last year,
Shannon had the procedure at Stanford Medical Center. On December 17th, we learned she was in remission and she,
my brother, and their two young sons ages 1 and 4 had the best holidays imaginable.

Then on June 25th, after just a few days of her feeling a bit under the weather, we got the news that knocked the wind
out of all of us- Shannon's leukemia was back in full force. They gave her 1-3 weeks. That was seven weeks ago.

Shannon listened patiently as they spelled out the two very bad choices (die at the hospital or die at home),
then said without a trace of hesitation, "I don't like those options. What else do you have?"

Bart, we thought this might of interest to your blog:

50 young people have camped outside Senator Coburn’s office for 7 days, bearing  the extreme cold,

and terrorizing people in Africa.   The organizers have a website with details and live video at

it must be something that will help good people.

I am so ashamed to live in a state represented by this heartless prick.

Grayson (D) Leads GOP Primary
 Voters like a man with balls


Republicans like a politician who stands up for what he believes -- even if he believes the GOP
is populated by a bunch of "knuckle-dragging Neanderthals."

The candidate leading the Florida GOP primary to determine who will take on Rep. Alan Grayson, (D)
is Grayson himself, according to a new poll. Grayson is a freshman congressman who has drawn scorn
from the GOP and has quickly built a nationwide following of progressives.

The poll has Grayson leading the 13 Republicans -- among Republicans -- with 27.8 percent of the vote.

You see the rewards of listing the facts and telling the truth?

Subject: Re: Nader was right about Obama…?

Who cares!  He was also dead WRONG in running flat-out against Gore in 2000.
As far as I am concerned Ralph Nader gave us Iraq, Afghanistan, national bankruptcy and
the death of a national energy policy, health care reform or any other reform necessary to grow
this country for another generation, buried under an avalanche of right-wing thuggery and lies!
Nader could not have done worse than if had been an RNC plant!

Ralph Nader typifies exactly what is wrong with American Politics today,
ironically the one thing Obama otherwise appears to be striving against,

I have no doubt that if Gore had taken the White House as he was lawfully entitled to do
that we would still be facing problems today, but the survival of The Republic would not be one of them!

If Gore had fought back a little in 2000, we'd still have the World Trade Centers, we'd still have
5,000 soliders living with their familes, we'd have a budget surplus and we wouldn't be trillions in debt
so the super-rich could have an even more luxurious life.

But Gore choose to lay down like a good Democrat always does.

Subject: Does unemployment keep people from working?


The Repubs insist that "unemployment compensation is a disincentive for them to seek new work."
Obviously, Sen. Kyl has never received unemployment -- which is so little that, when I lost my job,
I didn't even bother applying.

I have a proven compromise solution, though.  Extend unemployment benefits, but start giving a bonus
for people who find a job quickly -- for example, give them one week's equivalent unemployment check
for each two weeks less than 26 it takes them.  (Sorry for the math -- basically, get a job after four weeks
and you get 11 weeks bonus; after eight weeks you get 9; etc.)
