"My over Obama's negotiating tactics. In February, he cleared the way 
  for more nuclear power plants. Today, he opens up coastal drilling.  In other words, 
  Obama has already effectively given Republicans what they wanted on energy. 
  What is he getting in return?"
    -- Steve Benen,     Link

 They tell us in 2008, Obama played a lot of poker on the campaign plane.

 My question is - did he ever win?

 He makes Jack trading the cow for magic beans seem clever.

HC Repeal could backfire on GOP


Top Republicans are increasingly worried that GOP candidates this fall might be burned by a fire 
that's roaring through the conservative base: demand for the repeal of Obama's new health care law.

It's fine to criticize the health law and the way Democrats pushed it through Congress (without a single
GOP vote) these party leaders say. But focusing on its outright repeal carries two big risks.

Repeal is politically and legally unlikely, and grass-roots activists may feel disillusioned by a failed crusade. 
More important, say strategists from both parties, a fiercely repeal-the-bill stance might prove far less popular 
in a general election than in a conservative-dominated GOP primary, especially in states such as Illinois and California.

Democrats are counting on that scenario. They say more Americans will learn of the new law's benefits 
over time and anger over its messy legislative pedigree will fade. For months, Democrats have eagerly 
catalogued GOP candidates who pledge to repeal the health care law, vowing to make them pay in November.

Republican leaders are stepping cautiously, wary of angering staunchly conservative voters bent on repealing 
the new law. In recent public comments, they have quietly played down the notion of repealing the law while 
emphasizing claims that it will hurt jobs, the economy and the deficit.

It's one thing to fight the law getting passed, taking health care away from 40M people is another.

Can the Democrats once again find a way to screw up a sure thing?

"If Sarah Palin ends up as the Republican nominee, she'll get independents, because the Sarah Palin 
  who ends up as the nominee will have figured out how to win independents.  (What?)  I think the idea 
  that our pseudo-intellectuals get to define for us who is "the authoritative voice," having repudiated 
  Goldwater and Reagan is kind of funny."  
      -- Newt, saying the best and brightest of the GOP are fools,    Link

 Newt, Goldwater was a little before my time but we all know Reagan was a complete idiot.
 Reagan was Bush without the take-over-the-world crime spree.

 Why do you consistently nominate the dumbest hammer in the bag?
 What do you have against people with brains?

 And who's going to play Cheney to Palin's Monkey Fuhrer?

Subject: Willow Avoids Criminal Charges


Willow Palin and her friends allegedly broke into an empty house and partied, 
causing more than $20,000 in alleged damage to the house which was for sale.

Was Willow charged with a crime? Not exactly. 

According to sources close to the Alaska State troopers there was a secret meeting. 
This meeting took place between the Palin and the juvenile justice department. 
Directly after this secret meeting, word came down to the juvenile justice probation officer, 
Chris Evans, that ONLY the boys who had participated would be charged with the crime. 
The girls would only be identified as “witnesses” and face no criminal penalties.

How is this being received by some of the “Law and Order”-types up in Alaska?

This has made the State Troopers and the juvenile justice department very unhappy. 
But there was nothing they could do because the Palins had connections..

Obama and offshore drilling
 Another broken promise - why?


Obama announced he was opening up over 500,000 square miles of US coastal waters to oil and gas exploitation 
for the first time in over 20 years.

The move, a reversal of Obama's early campaign promise to retain a ban on offshore exploration, appeared 
aimed at winning support from Republicans in Congress for new laws to tackle global warming. 

Has our guy learned nothing?
Why does he always give in and surrender his lunch money before the bully asks for it?

Why does he think the bastards will ever agree with him on anything?
Why is he still trying?

It seemed like he gave up trying to please them when he made those recess appointments,
and then the very next week he goes back into insta-surrender mode - why?

 Their mistake was taking these handjobs to court.

Lesbo-bondage Quotes

"The D.C. GOP 'leadership' has been a problem for a long, long time. 
  Michael Steele is the symptom. Beltway-itis is the disease."'
    -- Michelle Malkin, (R-Batshit),     Link

 "At a time when regular Americans are struggling, a little humility and discretion 
  are in order on the part of Republicans, especially those serving as party leaders."
    -- Carol Platt Fibber,     Link

"How much will this Steele chairmanship cost the RNC in lost donations?" 
    -- Allapundit,     Link

"Has this kind of thing been approved by RNC officials in the past?" 
    -- Penny Nance, president of the conservative Concerned Women for America,     Link

 No, this is what happens when you give power to the Black man.

 Before Michael Tom Steele, there was no corruption in the GOP.
 There was no theft and there was no sexual perversion, either.

 It alllll happened after the Black guy took power.

 Moral of the story?  Rush is right.
 Them niggers will fuck you up every time.

Inquisition for the Pope?
 Dragon Lady claws at the Pontiff


The Catholic Church is spending Holy Week practicing the unholy art of spin. Complete with crown-of-thorns imagery, 
the church has started an Easter public relations blitz defending a pope who went along with the perverse culture of protecting 
molesters and the church’s reputation rather than abused - and sometimes disabled and disadvantaged - children. 

The church gave up its credibility for Lent. 
Holy Thursday and Good Friday are now becoming Cover-Up Thursday and Blame-Others Friday...

In his blog, Archbishop Dolan blasted church critics while stating: "The Church needs criticism; we want it; we welcome it; 
we do a good bit of it ourselves," adding: "We do not expect any special bring it on." Right.

Demonize gays, as Karl Rove did in 2004.

In an ad in The Times on Tuesday, Bill Donohue, the Catholic League president, offered this illumination: 
"The Times continues to editorialize about the 'pedophilia crisis', when all along it’s been a homosexual crisis. 
Eighty percent of the victims of priestly sexual abuse are male and most of them are post-pubescent. 
While homosexuality does not cause predatory behavior, and most gay priests are not molesters, 
most of the molesters have been gay."

Donohue is still talking about the problem as an indiscretion rather than a crime. 
If it mostly involves men and boys, that’s partly because priests for many years had unquestioned access to boys.

I don't get that part that's underlined.
Donohue keeps saying 80% of the victims are older kids or adults?
Then why aren't they kicking the priest's ass when he tries to fondle them?

If these priests want to play grab-ass with each other, it's a mockery of the vows 
they claim they believe in - but it's not a crime.   Molesting kids IS a crime
so Donahue changes the subject every chance he gets.

Bill, when you little, did you ever think you'd grow up to be the guy on TV
who explained why child rape isn't really as bad as the victims say it is?

And if there is a God (for the sake of argument) how's He going to feel
about your efforts to protect and defend these ruthless child rapers?

I understand this God has a temper worse than Bugsy Seigel.

Drilling Quotes

"Caving in on offshore drilling is presumably meant to get conservative support 
  for climate legislation.   ...because that worked so well with the health-care bill?"  
    -- Monica Potts,    Link

"I don't understand this at all. Increased coastal drilling would be a small price to pay 
  in exchange for actual congressional votes for an overall energy package that shifts us 
  to a low-carbon economy over time. But any price is too high a price to pay in exchange 
  for nothing at all. This isn't the greatest environmental crime in human history, but it 
  sure does seem like poor legislative strategy." 
    -- Matthew Yglesias,    Link

"The LA Times refers to this as a bargaining chip in the climate bill debate, but I see it 
  more like showing your cards before the end of the hand. Why would you let Republicans 
  know about a pre-compromised offshore drilling regime, so they can push for even more? 
  This won't garner one Republican vote any more than compromising the health care bill 
  garnered any Republican votes. If this was the result of a negotiation, fine, but this comes 
  BEFORE the negotiation."

"I haven't given up on Republicans. I do believe that there are Republicans of good conscience
  who want to work together on issues, we want to continue to do that...our view is to keep plugging away 
  and ultimately I believe more and more Republicans are going to come to the conclusion that, that it is 
  better politics to work on our problems than it is to work on the reelection process every single day." 
    -- David Axelrod,     Link

  Is Axelrod the reason Obama keeps trying to make friends with the dogs that bite?

 How can Axelrod possibly think there are "Republicans of good conscience who want to work together
 on issues" when the bastards vote against their own bills to deny Obama a single Republican vote?

 The sons of bitches vote against their own interests so they can go back home and say,  "Obama did this 
 on his own - without our imput. He's ruining America and Armageddon is just 24 hours away"

 Obama thinks he can reason with these peoiple?

I always ask the question: “How much would I have to pay you to be black for the rest of your life?”

A college prof who used to ask this in a class got an average of $1million as the discrepancy 
between being white and being black in America. (If I can find the ref, I’ll send it.)

Telling, that Shirley’s kind of whites claim there’s no inequality, or that the blacks get all the breaks, 
and yet you can’t pay white college students less than a million bucks to be black.

Who's  the  top?

Vanity Fair: Is Eldrick Lying?


Last week, Tiger Woods assumed all blame and indicated that he had no assistance or enabling from his inner circle.

It was an interesting claim, given that Woods was the embodiment of a multimillion-dollar corporation and that dozens,
if not hundreds, of people had a vested interest in keeping his image pristine. How could someone as visible as Woods 
commit all the "transgressions" he did, without some assistance, or at least some people willing to look the other way? 

Now, Vanity Fair asks that very question, casting doubt on Woods' honesty and forthrightness.  

Obviously Eldrick had help setting up these get-togethers.   What's he going to do - call airlines 
and hotels and use his Tiger Woods American Express card card for these girls?

When he did that first non-press conference, they say the first guy he hugged afterwards
was the guy who wrangled the girls - is that how a contrite man acts?

Keeping his enablers in his inner circle is like trying to quick coke or meth
while living with your drug dealer - it's just not going to work.

I'll bet Eldrick gets back to cheating inside a year.
He knows all he's got to do is wink to his buddy and he's all set up.

Subject: Peggy Noonan

If there has ever been a more irrelevant person in politics than Peggy Noonan, 
I cannot think of them yet here she is again.

This time Peggy writes that the mood of the country is bad, and everyone should stop 
stirring up angry people.  Then she goes on to declare the Democrats are very bright,
but not bright enough to understand they are stirring up the “beehive” as she puts it.

Why does anyone read this woman? She does admit there were “problems” before 
President Obama took office, then says he should stop doing the peoples’ work 
because that makes them angrier.  

Can anyone explain to me what the point of her article is? Except another 
“I am concerned for everybody, no really I am” post that always, 
always hints that it really is the Democrats’ fault.

Peggy Noonan, American Princess and ultimate “Concern Troll”.

Judge: Bush/Obama wiretaps illegal


A federal judge on Wednesday ruled that the NSA's warrantless surveillance program was illegal, 
rejecting the Obama administration’s effort to keep shrouded in secrecy one of the most disputed 
counterterrorism policies of der former Monkey Fuhrer.

Judge Vaughn R. Walker ruled that the government had violated a 1978 federal statute requiring court 
approval for domestic surveillance when it intercepted phone calls of Al Haramain, a now-defunct Islamic
charity in Oregon, and of two lawyers who were representing it in 2004. Declaring that the plaintiffs had been 
"subjected to unlawful surveillance", the judge said that the government was liable to pay them damages.

The ruling delivered a blow to the Bush administration’s claims that its warrantless surveillance program, 
which Mr. Bush secretly authorized shortly after 9-11, was lawful. Under the program, the NSA monitored 
Americans' e-mail messages and phone calls without court approval, even though the FISA, required warrants.

Obama is a Constitutional scholar - he knows these wiretaps are illegal.
Maybe he had to keep using them for political purposes?

If he ordered the wiretaps shut down, and a bomb went off somewhere in America,
the gasbag Right would say, "Obama refused to take the necessary steps to protect us."

Cowards who target Congress
 by Gene Lyons


Media-stoked paranoia on the far right is definitely reaching epidemic proportions.

Many are simply sad sacks, like the Alabama "militiaman" urging people to break Democrats' windows 
and prattling about "civil war" on his Web site. Interviewed by the Washington Post, 57-year-old Mike Vanderboegh 
turns out to be a retired warehouse manager suffering from congestive heart failure, diabetes and hypertension and living 
on $1,300 a month disability checks from, yes, the federal government. In short, a classic adept of right-wing talk radio, 
an unsophisticated, easily manipulated shut-in.

As a young man, he belonged to the extreme left Progressive Labor Party. Unfortunately, one needn't be consistent or 
even coherent to be dangerous. The arrests of those apocalyptic "Christian" militiamen in Michigan proved that. Experts 
say their motives were more religious than political, but when your goal is to foment insurrection does it matter whether 
it's cops or congressmen you're targeting?

Quick now, which is crazier: President Obama as the antichrist, or as Hitler? Both forms of madness flourish in an 
atmosphere of manufactured hysteria being daily fomented for partisan and commercial reasons on "conservative" 
talk-radio and TV, while supposedly respectable figures in the Republican Party pretend not to understand.

Will it take an "unthinkable" tragedy to bring them to their senses?

  before our president wakes up?"
