Bart, the winner of the Knock Out Pool is Jim F.

Congrats Jim. Harass Bart for your prize,
thanks to everyone for playing, and better luck next year.

Wow, that means five people lost last weekend?

Denver was the favorite against Oakland
and the Raiders ended up winning by 45 points!

What did we promise to the winner - who remembers?

Subject: corporate TV ads

Hey Bart,

I am seeing a secondary effect after the Scalia Court's decision to allow political advertising
by our Corporate Overlords.  Under Federal law, broadcasters must give politicians their lowest
advertising rate if the candidate's voice appears in the ad.  This law keeps broadcasters busy
during election season but doesn't tend to maximize profits.

Because they aren't  (openly) sponsored by a candidate, these (strictly Republican) political ads
by our Corporate Masters don't qualify for this minimum rate.  This gives broadcasters a profit motive
to encourage political controversy and directly improve their own bottom line.  Of course, many
broadcasters have done this for years to improve ratings, but that profit is more indirect. 
Right now broadcasters are really cleaning up!

And here in Seattle, at least two TV stations are flogging our Senate and House races beyond
any reasonable justification by concentrating on polls that show a tight Senate race and ignore
polls that show a Democrat in the lead.  Here. we are debating whether Senator Patty Murray
will beat her greaseball opponent by single digits or double digits.  But you would never know
that by watching Seattle television.

Best regards,
 HWD in Duckabush WA



"The Tea Party cannot be claimed as credit by anybody. Nobody can say, "I am the Tea Party."
  Nobody can say, "I started the Tea Party." Nobody can say, "I saw the Tea Party coming, and I steered it."
  Nobody who makes a living generating political support, generating political donations, nobody in that
  business can point to the Tea Party and say, "I did it." So it's a threat."

Subject: thought crimes

On Richard Cohen's "thought crimes," here is the point that argument doesn't consider:
Our laws, rules and practices are designed to protect those that are especially vulnerable to crime.

I think a good parallel would be laws we have to protect children. We have special laws and extra
fines for drug dealers who are near schools, because our society has decided that peddling drugs to
kids is worse than peddling drugs in general. Or how about laws that protect abused women?

Most cops lock up suspected wife-beaters even if wives refuse to press charges, something we do
only in that siutation to protect a "special" kind of victim. How about those doubled traffic fines
for speeding in a work zone, or for not moving over for a disabled vehicle?
So I see "hate crimes" against gays and other minority groups the same way. When a class of people
is in particular danger of being victim through no fault of their own - whether it's because they're gay,
an abused woman or a 6-year-old, we take extra care to protect them. But the Cohens of the world
only bitch about the laws that protect gays and coloreds. Wonder why that is?

Andy - I agree - thanks.

"When it comes to voting, when we only have two choices, you got to grow up and realize there's a big
  difference between a disappointing friend and a deadly enemy. Of course the Democrats are disappointing.
  That's what makes them Democrats. If they were any more frustrating they'd be your relatives. But in this
  country they are all that stands between you and darkest night. You know why their symbol is the letter 'D'?
  Because it's a grade that means good enough, but just barely. You know why the Republican symbol is 'R'?
  Because it's the noise a pirate makes when he robs you and feeds you to a shark."

“Mike Palecek reminds me of Socrates the gadfly who asked unwelcome questions,
Diogenes with his lantern looking in vain for an honest man,
Chekhov the man with the hammer challenging the complacent family to share their meal,
Kerouac the ever on the move, somewhat hysterical searcher, and he reminds me of many
Americans who as children were so blasted with propaganda that they’re devoting the rest
of their lives to challenging the lies and all who tell them. In this land where babies are
brought by storks and buildings collapse due to unpatriotic bricks, we need the gadfly
because no leader, preacher, guru, or saint will wake us up, though the Doomsday clock
is ticking close to twelve.”
— David Ray, American poet, author of “The Endless Search”
and “The Death of Sardanapalus and Other Poems of the Iraq Wars”

"I love that characterization, that my marriage is an 'upgrade'."
-- the vulgar Pigboy,

 Butt Rush, "upgrade" means you had a wife, then got a better one.
 That's not true - all three of your previous wives dumped you.
 You must be real shit to live with if all those millions can't convince a woman to stay.
 How much did you pay this latest one to stay and for how long?

Cowboys’ season is broken beyond repair

Dallas is 1-5 and trending toward 4-12,   ha ha
  but they'll be Superbowl contenders next year.


Subject: The Democrats are catching up

As we get closer to election day the Democrats are pulling ahead of Republicans.

I think as people get closer to actually voting people are looking at the Republicans and realizing
the Republicans aren't going to solve Americas problems. Republican haven't learned a thing from
the last two elections. In fact the Republicans have gotten worse. They not only want to go back
to the Bush policies, they want to do things like eliminate Social Security and Medicare. And these
new Tea Party Republicans are just plain crazy and crazy people don't tend to solve complex problems.

What people are remembering is that we used to have a surplus under President Clinton and it's
the Democrats who are the ones who are fiscally conservative. They remember it took Clinton 5 years
to turn the economy around. I think the voters are coming to the conclusion that they are going to stay
the course and give the Democrats more time to fix what the Republicans destroyed.

Hey Bart Man: I'm still alive but have had to avoid ALL politics because it was really affecting my health.

Rob, thanks for that!
Obama broke a lot of hearts and many Dems are having a tough time getting over that.
