"There is a real shot we are going to get slaughtered
in elections this fall if we aren't leading the efforts to reform Washington.
We campaigned in '06 and '08, and if voters don't see that change, we haven't lived
up to that promise." --Steve Hildebrand, deputy campaign manager for
Barack Obama's presidential campaign,
Hey Steve, we all get that - you don't need to tell us,
you need to get word to your former boss that change is what
we voted for.
Excerpt: Brian Ross' "World News" report showed him driving
a Toyota with Gilbert that was rigged to quickly accelerate.
Briefly during the drive, ABC cut to a faked picture
of a tachometer with the needle zooming forward. The impression
whore ABC meant to give was that the tachometer
was documenting the ride Ross was taking. Instead, that picture was
taken from a separate instance where a short-circuit
was induced in a parked car.
ABC said they faked the report because it was
impossible to get a good picture of the tachometer while the car
was moving because the camera was shaking. The
camera shot was steady when it was taken in a parked car.
"The tachometer showed the same thing every time,"
claimed ABC News spokesliar Emily Lenzner.
Toyota spokesman John Hanson disputes that, saying
tachometers react much more dramatically when
short-circuits happen in a parked car than a
car that is moving. Tachometers measure engine speed.
It all points to problems that are created when
whore journalists try to alter reality in order to get a better picture.
Subject: Democrats need to lead
polls, not follow them
There's a difference between being a follower
and a leader and the Democrats haven't figured that out.
Many Dems are trying to decide of health care
reform based on polling or the number of people calling their office.
What Democrats should be doing is what is right
for America. If they fail to pass the Senate health care bill next week
we will never see reform in our life time and
insurance premiums will skyrocket. I can't imagine the Democrats wanting
to get reelected after failing to pass health
care reform. It seems to me that if they don't know what to do they should
just do the opposite of want the Republicans
want them to do.
I just can't get my mind wrapped around a Congress
that thinks it's just peachy keen for a
very few chosen to make a killing off of the
physical miseries of their (allegedly) fellow human beings. Sick.
At least here in Prague it's just a misdemeanor
for an aging, arthritic old fart veteran to own a half ounce of weed,
with every reasonable assurance of never being
brought to court for anything. And at my advanced age (64) medical

What did O'Drone-o-bomber mean by "Yes we can!"?
Did we (Gasp!!!) buy the proverbial pig in a poke?
What is so hard about delivering decent health
care to a country? Every other "developed" country in the world does it.
But what do I know? I always thought that the
hippocampus was some place like Berkeley,
or Cambridge, or Ann Arbor, or, even, yes, Austin.
Just a hay-seed ex-pat in Prague,
Yesterday I asked, How can the 2005 & 2010
models screw up now? Mrs. Bart came up with an idea:
The electronics - every time they "sync" a 2005 Toyota
with the main Toyota diagnostic computer,
maybe it infects the 2005 car with the 2010 virus.
That would explain the rash of events, but that
only holds water if the crazy 2005 cars had recently
melded with Toyota's computer
Suggestion: Check Toyota owners who've not recently taken their car
back to the dealership for repairs.
So far, there's no evidence that Toyota has a problem beyond the terrible
PR, but if there
is a problem, something has to explain why great cars for 5
years are going crazy.
"The fact that Wal-Mart is carrying this movie
- a movie that specifically exposes Wal-Mart’s past practice of taking out secret “dead peasant”
life insurance policies on its employees and naming itself as the lone beneficiary should
the employee meet an “untimely” early death - need you any further proof that Corporate
America is so secure in its position as the ruler of our country, so sure of its infallible power
that, yes, they can even sell a movie that attacks them because it poses absolutely no threat
to them?" -- Michael Moore, on Wal-Mart selling his “Capitalism:
A Love Story” DVD,
I have no idea who's telling the truth, just wanted
you to know there is another side to the story.

I like Olbermann (when he's not lying about Hillary) but between the
two I'd believe Ventura.
Olbermann gives several reasons why MSGOP dropped their top-rated show
and I don't believe him.
You don't kill your top-rated show - if nothing else you use it as
a loss leader to build other shows.
Also, Olbermann is flat-out calling Ventura a liar, but it's on MSGOP
to explain why they wouldn't
let Jesse on the air but sent him a monthly check for three years which,
coincidentally, kept Jesse
from doing any other talk shows.
Sure looks like they wanted all anti-war voices silenced.
Remember, MSGOP was owned by a war machine.
One other thing: Did you see last Monday on 24, the

"The Beltway media has been doing its darndest
to liken the ethical problems facing the Democrats today and those faced by
the Republicans in recent years, but the differences could not be more stark. In the case
of Eric Massa, for instance, within about a week of allegations of his misconduct coming
forward into the public sphere, he resigned. Yet when you look at the scandals affecting
the Republican Party, the response is very different. David Vitter, Mark Sanford and John
Ensign are all still in office years and months after it became clear that they were worthless
scumbags." -- Jonathan Singer,
Excerpt: A senior cardinal has called for priestly celibacy
to be re-examined in the light of sex scandals sweeping the Roman
Catholic Church. Cardinal Christoph Schönborn,
conservative Archbishop of Vienna and a protégé of Benny
shocked the Vatican by suggesting that it should
carry out an “unflinching examination” of causes of the scandal.
These included “the issue of priests’ training”,
he wrote, “the question of priest celibacy and the question of personality
development. It requires a great deal of honesty,
both on the part of the Church and of society as a whole”.
The Vatican said the remarks had been misinterpreted.
What else can they say?
In the Church you're not allowed to have independent thought.
“Priestly celibacy is a gift of the Holy Spirit,”
Cardinal Claudio Hummes said with a straight face.
Yeah, and what about your little gift to a six
year old's rear end?
Between celibacy and the Devil, you guys are going
with the Devil excuse on this?
Why doesn't the Devil tempt any straight guys into blowing a dude?
Could it be because the straight guys don't swing that way?
I'm paid each month in that I don't have to pay
to have our cars repaired. We're approaching 100 months
on the two cars, one Toyota, one Honda, and I'm
a busy man with shit to do, so waiting at a Pontiac
dealership for them to repair my damn car AGAIN
is something up with which I will not put.
So you are correct - I speak highly of them because
they have saved me tons of money.
Excerpt: My Chrysler is four years old. I bought it because of its smooth and
comfortable ride. When it would start!!
More than a dozen times in these years, the car
has simply died. Batteries have been replaced, but that wasn't
the problem. My dad drives the same model. His
car has died many times, too. Just won't start, for no reason at all.
A few weeks ago, I took my Chrysler in to the
Chrysler dealer -- and the latest fixes cost me $1,400.
See? That's like getting a check from Toyota for
- without the hassle!
The next day, the vehicle wouldn't start. When
I got it going, the brake warning light came on. And on and on
And as much as Michael Moore loves his home state
I assume Michael now drives a Japanese car and
I'll bet it starts every damn time.
Excerpt: Two sources in the golf community say that Ari
Fleischer, the former forked tongue of The Bush Butcher
has been huddling with Woods, plotting a strategy
for his return to golf — starting March 25 in Orlando, Fla.
“They were in his living room this week going
over a strategy for how to handle Bay Hill in two weeks,” claims one source.
This is a good move for Eldrick.
After that disasterous "press conference" where
the press was gagged
he's going to need some expert advice on how
to screw up less next time.
People are used to hearing Fleischer tell the
clumsiest lies in White House history, lies about rape, kidnapping,
stolen elections, invasions, grand theft, torture
and murder, and Eldrick isn't guilty of any of those crimes - probably.
It's like having a big-time mob lawyer help you
with your parking ticket.
The best Tiger Woods could do is hire the guy
who orchestrated Mark McGwire's bungled
re-entry into baseball? The guy who shills for
the galactically stupid and indefensible BCS?
The guy who counseled the Green Bay Packers on
how to deal with their Brett Favre divorce?
And now Ari Fleische, is overseeing Woods' return
to golf and all that comes with it? What a mistake.
From Fleischer's Web site: Let us help you
gain control over the way you deliver your message with comprehensive instruction for each point
of contact with the media.
Yes, that's what Woods needs right now. He needs
to be programmed more!
Let's load him up with comprehensive instruction
and deliver him to America.
You won't know whether it's Tiger or an Audio-Animatronic
at the Hall of Presidents.
When is Woods going to realize that he's in this
hot mess because,
(A) He had zipper-control issues and
(B) He was disconnected from reality and thought
he was bullet-proof?
Rehab for sexual addiction has begun to address
but solving the B part comes from within, not
from a PR firm.
Poor Eldrick - the tide keeps pulling him farther
and farther away from the shore.
...but you can bet I'll be watching his comeback
"Hex on thee, Tiger, Hex on
I expect the fans, mostly women, will be hurling
When the news hit that Tiger cheated once, *dozens*
of other girls came forward to say
they had also affairs with him in the past.
Plausible enough. But what we have thought if
those girls said they all started their affairs
with him right after the broadcast? We'd think "Bullshit".
Well, unless Tiger was a Toyota - in which case
we'd apparently marvel
at the amazing luck of those hard-working reporters.
I think I see where you're going - but it's one
thing to keep an affair quiet.
How do you keep the news of your 90-MPH-runaway
Excerpt: Democrats enjoy a gaudy 75-seat majority. Wait.
Scratch that. The Democrats suffer the affliction
of a 75-seat majority. That's a joke, except
not really. What is going on right now in the lower house
vis a vis healthcare reform is a stomach-turning
sight to behold – a saga of preening, duplicity, pomposity,
self-interest and, most of all, cowardice that
is worthy of Holinshed. The players in this drama are participating
in the destruction of their own party. They know
this. And they persist.
What's happening right now, of course, is that
Nancy Pelosi and Obama are trying to round up the votes
in the house to pass the Senate's health bill.
Exactly 216 are needed. Right now they have 194. Or 202. Or 210.
Or something. But not 216.
Lots of Democrats – 49 of them, in fact – represent
districts where John McCain defeated Obama.
They live in fear of being tarred by a future
Republican opponent of having abetted the march of "socialism."
So they voted no on the most important piece
of social legislation in probably 40 years.
The safest bet in the world is that the cowardly Democrats will stab
their president in the back.
Excerpt: Years ago, the Majority Leader of the Utah House
took a nude hot-tub with a 15-year old employee,
then paid her $150,000 and had her pledge to
keep quiet, he admitted yesterday.
The incident occurred in 1985, when Kevin Garn
was 30, and married. In 2002, when Garn,
a Republican, was running for Congress, the woman,
Cheryl Maher, began contacting reporters
prompting Garn to pay her $150,000 and have an
attorney draft a non-disclosure agreement.
With his wife by his side, Garn told reporters:
"I expect to suffer public humiliation and
embarrassment. Some lessons are hard to learn."
