"Our enemy is listening, and I cannot help
but wonder if they aren't shaking their heads
in amazement at the thought that anyone
would imperil such a sensitive program.
How can anyone conclude that it is
not appropriate to intercept al Qaeda phone calls?"
-- Tortureboy Gonzales, pretending
they're only listening to terrorists
Hey TBG, if you're only listening to terrorists, why did the FISA court
turn you down?
They approve 99.99 percent of every request they get, but they
That's proof you're spying on Americans for no valid reason.
Texan' Means Lyin' Big
by Richard Parry as seen on consortiumnews.com
George W. Bush told an audience at the Grand
Ole Opry that he would explain his warrantless wiretap program
in "Texan," presumably straight-shootin' talk.
He then proceeded to give a fictional account of how his special
spying program only targets Americans who are
calling al-Qaeda operatives. The reality is much different, with
vast amounts of data from Americans being mined
for leads that almost invariably turn out to be worthless.

President Bush said in his State of the Union
address, ''we strive to be a compassionate, decent, hopeful society."
The next day, he and his fellow Republicans ambushed
the poor...Bush said that we strive for a compassionate society.
But the Institute of Medicine report concluded,
''we cannot excuse the unfairness and insufficient compassion with
which our society deploys its considerable healthcare
resources and expertise." The rich get compassion and tax cuts.
The poor get no compassion. They just get cut.
Hmmm, this guys seems surprised that Bush would tell a bald-faced lie
and then kick the poor people in the teeth because they were powerless
to stop him.
Maybe he's new.
Rep. John A. Boehner (R-Tobacco Whore), who was
elected House majority leader last week, is renting
his Capitol Hill apartment from a veteran lobbyist
whose clients have direct stakes in legislation Boehner has
co-written and that he has overseen as chairman
of the Education and the Workforce Committee. The relationship
between Boehner, John Milne and Milne's wife,
Debra R. Anderson, underscores how intertwined senior
lawmakers have become with the lobbyists paid
to influence legislation. Boehner's primary residence is in
West Chester, Ohio, but for $1,600 a month, he
rents a two-bedroom basement apartment near the House
office buildings on Capitol Hill owned by Milne,
Boehner spokesman Don Seymour said yesterday.

of Saying Nothing
We thought President Bush's two recent Supreme
Court nominees set new lows when it came to giving
vague and meaningless answers to legitimate questions,
but Attorney General Alberto Gonzales made them
look like models of openness when he testified
before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday about
domestic spying. Mr. Gonzales seems to have forgotten
the promise he made to the same panel last year
when it voted to promote him from White House
counsel to attorney general: that he would serve the
public interest and stop acting like a hired
gun helping a client figure out how to evade the law.
"There is no excuse for violating the rule
of law. You can listen to [suspects] and get the warrant afterward.
Not to do that appears to be an expression
of contempt for the idea of warrants."
-- Grover Norquist, (R-Nazi) saying Bush is breaking the law,
"I always really admired her. I liked
the way she maintained her dignity in the face of all the
difficulties she faced. One of the most vivid
things to me, although most nobody has mentioned it,
is less than a week after he was shot, she
and her children went to Memphis and led that march
that he was down there to lead. And you know,
she would have been forgiven, I think, by everyone
concerned if she had chosen just to be a mother
and to focus on her own life. Instead it was her cause,
too, and she continued it and broadened it."
-- Bill Clinton, America's last elected president,
Subject: are Democrats being
On one hand, we know that Little bush has been
illegally spying on people
and was embarrassed/ashamed/too sneaky to even
ask for a warrant.
On the other hand, we have a bunch of Beltway
Democrats who seem
to be scared of their own shadows, or something.
It sure looks to me like some of these Democrats
are being blackmailed.
Or is it just me?
HW, they can't all be vulnerable to blackmail.
Recently, I said that *I* can't be blackmailed,

is Lying' Quotes
"Previous Presidents have used the same constitutional
authority I have,
and federal courts have approved the
use of that authority."
-- Dubya, lying like always in his State of the Union address, Link
Do you know of any other President who has authorized
warrantless wiretaps outside of FISA?
Um, none come to mind, Senator. I can’t give you an answer.
Did Feingold follow-up with, "So
why did your president lie last Tuesday?"
That was a dumb question on my part.
Subject: Kerry & Alito filibuster
Bart, if “Kerry [is], always the meekest, mildest
and most cautious tutu in the room”
why was he the one to start the filibuster?
Clearly, he was shamed into it.
In 2003, he said (my words)
"I vow to block any anti-choice nominee Bush sends up."
Instead of doing that, he jetted off to Switzerland
for a skiing vacation.
(Don't tell he he was there for a "conference.")
Once the bigger websites (not bartcop.com) started
rubbing his nose in his "vow,"
he said, "Whoops,
my bad" and came running home to do the
job too little, too late.
It's like he wants to be Dick Clark, but
he always has "other plans" on New Years Eve.
He can't be bothered with work - he just can't
f-ing be bothered with saving this country..
Whichever it is, it seems that at least this time
he was not “the meekest,
mildest and most cautious tutu in the room.”
Doesn’t mean he has real brass ones (Helen Thomas,
call your office.)
Keep the hammer going.
True, on the SAC scale, Kerry was a three this time instead of a zero.
We still lost, because "leader Kerry" went to sleep - AGAIN.
He knew Alito had confirmation momentum when he left the country - the

"My criteria for judging this stuff is what

And if I'm troubled by what she would

even though I have more trust in Bush
than I do in Hillary."
-- Paul M. Weyrich, (R-Nazi) saying
Bush is breaking the law,
They seem to think Hillary is going to win.
That being the case, it's the smart move to stop Bush's crimes
before Hillary talkes over and has unlimited Presidential
powers for two terms.

for Wiretap Inquiry
She's the Repub who oversees the NSA
A House Republican whose subcommittee oversees
the National Security Agency broke ranks with Bush
and called for a full Congressional inquiry into
the Bush administration's domestic eavesdropping program.
The lawmaker, Representative Heather A. Wilson
of New Mexico, chairwoman of the House Intelligence
Subcommittee on Technical and Tactical Intelligence,
said in an interview that she had 'serious concerns'
about the surveillance program. By withholding
information about its operations from many lawmakers,
she said, the administration has deepened her
apprehension about whom the agency is monitoring and why.
Subject: Monkey at Coretta's
I see that the “liberal” media is piling on regarding
the overt and subtle criticism of Monkey during
the Coretta Scott King funeral. Not unexpected
from the same bunch of scumbags that feigned fake outrage
over the Wellstone funeral leading to the election
of AbNorm Coleman. The fact that the Democrats will
likely stand by and let it happen without a peep
is no surprise either. (I expect
them to apologize.)
President Weak and Stupid’s very presence at the
funeral was a complete mockery that would be easy for
the Democrats to exploit if they had a brain
or courage.... (never mind.) The “leader of the party of racists
who has done everything he possibly could to
marginalize darkie while in the White House (not to mention
the New Orleans debacle!) is allowed to stand
there and spew disingenuous platitudes about this great
woman and her husband with no recourse?!
Not only does a lack of fighting back by the Democrats allow
the right-wing nut jobs to position him as the
victim they actually help give him cover from any accusations of racism.
I’m not sure if the sound I hear is the Bush family’s
plot in hell being stoked even hotter
or the spinning of the Kings in their graves.

"There were eight of us that served together.
Six of my friends are dead."
She looks healthy, but Sterry is a very sick
woman who has no idea how much longer she will live.
"I've had three heart attacks, two heart surgeries.
I have chronic headaches, chronic upper respiratory infections.
I get pneumonia two or three times a year," she
said. "I have chronic fatigue, joint aches, muscle aches.
I have a rash that migrates all over my body."
Sterry figures the initial symptoms began in Saudi
Arabia in September of 1991 while she was serving with the
National Guard. Three years later, the symptoms
were still there, but much more severe.
State Sen. Gayle Slossberg said one of the sources
of the diseases may be depleted uranium.

Democrats are heading into this year's elections
in a position weaker than they had hoped for,
stirring concern that they are letting pass an
opportunity to exploit what they see as widespread
Republican vulnerabilities. In interviews, senior
Democrats said they were optimistic about
significant gains in Congressional elections
this fall, calling this the best political environment
they have faced since President Bush took office."

defeat with grace and dignity.

Bush be without Terrorism?
Where would the Bush administration be without
terrorism? Like the Cold War before it, the "war on terror"
is a conveniently sweeping rationale for all
manner of irrational governance, such as the outrageous $2.77 trillion
budget the president proposed to Congress on
Monday. Without terrorism, how could Bush justify to fiscal
conservatives the whopping budget deficits that
he has ballooned via his tax cuts for the wealthy that he now
seeks to make permanent?...In order to pay for
the money pit that is Iraq, the Bush budget demands draconian
cuts in 141 domestic programs, led by a $36 billion
cut in Medicare spending for the elderly over the next five years.
This from a president re-elected after promising
to expand rather than curtail health-care services to seniors.

Mariah Has Momentum for Grammys
In less than a year's time, Mariah Carey managed
to escape pop's most dreaded fate - faded superstar -
to become its reigning queen, ruling the record
charts with the year's most popular single and its best-selling album.
Carey could also become queen of the Grammys if
her momentum carries in to Wednesday night. The diva, who won
her only two Grammys 16 years ago as a multiplatinum
newcomer, has the opportunity to win a record-setting eight trophies,
including the categories of record, song, and
album of the year. No woman has won more than five Grammys in one evening.
I saw something this week about Mariah's great
"sense of fashion," which made me gag.
I think she thinks she's in great shape but she's
always coming out of her less-than-ample clothes.
Mariah's not my favorite, althought she can
sing, but I gotta salute this comeback.
Forget that "faded superstart" crap - a few years
ago, the attack bastards in the whore press ran
a new story each day about how she was
"crazy" and "unbalanced" and "unable to cope with reality."
Can you imagine what it's like to be that
famous, and every time you walk in a room you hear
people whisper about the state of your sanity?
I'd rather see Kanye and U2 and others win some
awards tonight, but if Mariah wins, that's OK,

just crazy," to me, is a bigger comeback
