A longtime Bartcop fan has published her first Young Adult Novel:
"Adventures of a Teenage Muse".
It's about a dragon and the muse he works for, not politics, but couldn't
you use a distraction from the looming threat of Romney & Ryan?
Besides, the author is a liberal and wants Bart to keep on swinging that hammer!

"Adventures of a Teenage Muse" is available

"I've always tried to be a "we" person. I think that our president is
  an "I" person.  He speaks as tho he killed Osama bin Laden himself."
       --  that doddering old man who argues with empty chairs for long periods of time    Link

  Clint, you're just lying and that's kinda sad.

  Obama has NEVER said "I killed bin Laden" and you know that.
  So you accuse him of "speaking as tho..." yet you fail to quote the words that offended you.

  Why can't you give us the date where Obama said, "I killed bin laden," Clint?
  You can't because he never said that - you're lying.

  The closest he's ever come is to say, "We" killed bin Laden, meaning the US military.

  Do you just hate Black people?

  I ask because there are FACTUAL reasons to dislike the president, but you don't attack with facts.
  You make shit up and then accuse Obama if being guilty of that.

  I'm NOT accusing you of covering up for a child molester, but you remind me of Joe Paterno.
  You've had a LIFETIME of popularity and now you're doing your best to throw it all away.

  Because of your stupidity, half of America will always remember you as that sour,
  confused old man who attacked the Black guy with shit he made up - and that's sad, Clint.

NY Whore Times Protects Romney
Cheney's favorite paper loves the GOP


On Wednesday, the New York Whore Times published a provocative story bylined by David E. Sanger
and Ashley Parker, leading with the news that Mitt Romney had personally approved the blistering
Tuesday night statement on the attacks in Libya and Egypt that landed his campaign in trouble.

But hours later, the newspaper wiped the story out and replaced it with a significantly rewritten piece
bylined by Peter Baker and Ashley Parker.

The Times also originally quoted "an adviser to the campaign who worked in the George W. Bush
administration" who said that Romney “had forgotten the first rule in a crisis: don’t start talking
before you understand what’s happening.” That is missing from the later version.

TPM's Josh Marshall suggested the changes to this piece "would seem to require some explanation."

The New York Times was once reverently referred to as "The Old Grey Lady."

Now, it's just an aging whore that nobody will pay for.

RNC Needs Diversity Makeover
  by Donald D'Heane


Republicans could take a paint-by-number lesson from our own play book. Let me explain.

Fifteen years ago, Reform Party of Canada leader Preston Manning attempted to change his image.
He even had laser eye surgery so he could ditch his owlish glasses. Maybe he took my advice.

The previous fall, my acting agent called and asked me to send my head shot to a production company.
They were looking for different "looks" for a print shoot for the cover of their Reform Party brochure.
As an in-joke (I know -- I'm bad), I also sent a photo of myself with my then-partner, an African-Canadian.
Since political affiliation wasn't a determining factor, I figured sexual orientation wouldn't be either.

Guess what? We were both chosen for the shoot!

Good story - if you have time, read the whole thing.

Why Obama Must Go
A Rebuttal to Newsweek's Idiocy


In Niall Ferguson's piece, "Why Obama Must Go," he mentions the stock market is up 74% since
Inauguration Day 2009. If this kind of market gain was achieved by a Republican president -- during
a tumultuous time when we were in the throes of what looked like a global financial meltdown, we'd
never hear the end of it.

Republicans would be doing non-stop victory laps and Fox News would be reminding us of this impressive
advance 24/7. I mean after all, if there's one thing in this country which reflects the free market system in
all its unfettered glory it's the stock market, and a 70+% rise is not too shabby for a Kenyan socialist.   ha ha

Especially when you compare it against GW/Cheney's eight year stock market return of near minus 40%
(1/31/01 - 1/31/09). But this shouldn't be too surprising since it's documented fact that the stock market
fares much better under Democrat presidents than Republican.

Al Gore's Greatest Mistakes

A week ago, Bill Clinton gave one of the best speeches of his life.

First thing I thought of was he could've given a speech like that for Gore,
but Al wasn't thinking very clearly back in the summer of 2000.

First, Gore rightfully said Clinton had been a great president (I forget the exact words)
but then some on the Right mocked him for saying that, even tho Clinton tripled the
stock market, created 23M new jobs, balanced the budget and, perhaps his greatest
achievement, never sent a man into battle who didn't come home alive.

But Al Gore wanted none of that.

Al Gore wanted to "be my own man," but what was Gore without Clinton?

Then he chose Kissyface for VP and pundits saw that as a slap at Clinton because
Kissyface was Clinton's most outspoken Democratic critic during impeachment.

Gore ran a horrible campaign, almost as bad as John Kerry's disasterous campaign.
There are a hundreds of reasons why Gore lost (to an idiot who couldn't form sentences)
but most people point to the fact the he lost his home state, Tenneesee, and Arkansas.

If Gore had allowed Clinton to campaign for him, maybe in just those two states,
he would've won but, he wanted to be his own man more than he wanted to win.

The the shit hit the fan in Florida and Gore surrenedered AGAIN, telling Democrats
to stay away from Florida so all the TV viewers saw were angry Republicans who
demanded that Der Monkey Fuhrer be installed against the wishes of the voters.

Al, you made one stupid decision after another and that nearly destroyed America.

But, you got to be your own man and that's what's important, right?

Paul Ryan doesn't need Facts
by Gene Lyons

Is it more laughable or embarrassing that Paul Ryan made inflated claims about his athletic prowess
in the seeming belief that nobody would know the difference?

Ryan's boast was no idle slip of the tongue. It came during an interview when asked about his distance running.
Here's the transcript:

HEWITT: But you did run marathons at some point? What's your personal best?

RYAN: Under three, high twos. I had a two hours and fifty-something.

HEWITT: Holy smokes!...

Faced with an interlocutor who knew that he'd claimed an elite time, Ryan should have backed off immediately.
Instead, he doubled-down. It wasn't until Runner's World documented that his actual recorded time was
four hours and change that the candidate had to admit he wasn't so fast, but distinctly average.

It was, of course, an accidental "misstatement." His brother was said to be teasing him about it.

I'll bet he was.

I wonder if they also talked about their hometown GM factory
whose closing was announced before President Obama's election?

McCain's Flash of Sanity on Libya


We caught up with John McCain to talk to him about Libya. His tone could not have been
more different than those of that braying jackass, Willard the Shithead. Firstly, McCain offered
a moving tribute to Ambassador Chris Stevens, who he got to know well on his trips to Libya.

"Chris Stevens is one of the finest people I've ever known in my life," McCain said.
"He loved the Libyan people. They loved him. He and I were down there on election night and
people were saying, 'Thank You America.' Chris Stevens did not want us to abandon Libya."

As for the Obama administration's handling of the crisis, McCain was almost entirely positive.
"I think it was fine. Hilary Clinton gave a marvelous statement today," said McCain.
He did not offer such praise for the braying jackass who's leading his party to defeat.

 Subject: Mitt Romney Disgraces America

Mitt Romney made the world a more dangerous place today when he made stupid comments
about the murder of our ambassador in Libya. Romney reminded the world that America is just
one bad election away from going back to Bush, or even worse.

That undermines the world's confidence in American leadership.
Even Bush knows to keep his mouth shut until he at least figures out what's going on.

Hey Bart, regarding today’s submission by “Andrew in Kansas”, in a fairly heart-felt
and complimentary note, he typed “…how much do you shill out…”
And your response is  “… "Shill out" has such a negative connotation.”

Srsly dude?  With all the typos you produce in a single day’s post,
you couldn’t determine that he meant “shell” out???

Today's Mystery Car Photo 


 Subject: last issue's Mystery Car    Link

Today's mystery car is a 1973 Pontiac Grand Prix - '73 was the first year for
the federally mandated energy absorbing bumpers, and the first year for the
colonnade body style on GM intermediates (this body style ran through '77,
then they downsized the intermediates for the 1978 model year).
A couple of issues ago, you ran a comment from Witkowski - would that be
Bob Witkowski from Prescott, AZ? 


I remember that he had a weekly television show that I watched in Phoenix called "At Wits End",
along with an older gray haired gentleman.  He also had a radio show for a while on Phoenix radio,
and he used to mention your website, which is when I first started reading - is he still in AZ?

I believe he's in Florida now.
I thought of you when I was reading the paper at breakfast this morning - I didn't know that
Hobby Lobby was based in Oklahoma - after reading this, I have no need to shop there again:
Yeah, Obama stuck his big giant boot down their throats by giving the poor health care.
I need to check my finances - just about time to send you a PayPal contribution for your fine work.

Hi Bart, last issue's History Mystery is naturalist and writer Ernest Thompson Seton.

You are correct!

Seton is the guy who told Teddy Roosevelt to designate Yellowstone a national park.
