In case my enemies are interested in knowing what I look like, I’ll be on Seattle Voices with Eric Liu tonight at 8:00 PM, on The Seattle Channel, channel 21.

Or so I’m told. I don’t actually have cable.

    Harry Tuttle spews:

    Man, the enviousness of these wingnuts is really kind of poingnant.

    After a decade and more of Limbaugh, O’Reilly, and Hannity nationwide conjoined with the local Wilbur/Carlson zoo at KVI, an entertaining, intelligent and popular local voice comes out of the left and they are sore afraid (in a biblical sense, see Numbers 22:3).

    Of course they don’t recognize this fearsome quality they cower from in Goldy, having been desensitized by the n’eer do wells from the right. Those losers who couldn’t make it elsewhere in media.

    It’s called talent.

    # 14:

    Funny, the Texas redistricting opinion is a two-edged sword for the Republicans. First, they will, indeed, have to redesign two Congressional districts, under court supervision, because the Court found the redistricting in those areas to be racially motivated.

    Secondly, the SCOTUS decision says there is no prohibition against redistricting at any time, not just after the decinial census. So when the Democrats win big in 2006, they can redistrict to their heart’s content! Suddenly a lot of those Republican seats don’t look so safe anymore – everybody is in play!

    So, Florida will not prosecute Limabaugh. Big surprise (not). As I mentioned in another post (I think on the day he was detained by U.S. Customs), if it was me (or just about anybody else), we would still be in jail, under investigation or while being charges.

    But while the Florida authorities don’t see anything wrong with (a) traveling outside the U.S. while on supervised release under a deferred prosecution, and (b) being in possession of drugs not prescribed to a Limbaugh, while Limbaugh is on deferred prosecution for using others to get drugs for him; the REAL investigators are hard at work, trying to find out exactly WHAT Limbaugh was doing in the Dominican Republic that required him to carry at least 29 Viagra pills with him (the amount left over AFTER he returned to the U.S.). No word so far of where he was staying or what activities he was engaged in, but The Smoking Gun has compelled the release of the passenger manifest, showing that Limbaugh was on an airplane owned by Premier Radio Networks (his syndicator), and that the “stag party” on board included two crew members and five passengers (including Limbaugh), and two of those passengers were executive producers of Fox’s “24” series.

    Of course, nothing illegal or improper about any of that. But it still begs the question: what did Rush need with the Viagra pills on the trip, that he was willing to go to considerable trouble to have prescribed to him in such a risky way, and to take them on a trip with him which would require him to cross international boarders twice with them in his possession?

    Stay tuned, kids, more info is sure to follow.

    Harry Tuttle spews:

    Amy Chua in her book World on Fire does an excellent job tracking the corruption involved in supposedly democratic countries where appropriation of wealth by market dominant minorities and the disproporionate political power they gain as a result disenfranchises the majority. This, she says, is what accounts for the violence and unrest in the developing world.

    In a great deal of the cases she outlines, the accumulation of that wealth starts with crime, usually drug running. She cites examples in Indochina, Russia, Sierra Leone, Bolivia and the Middle East.

    Her overall point is that globalization is a bad deal for developing countries, because it stirs up ethnic strife by creating tiny oligarchies that prey on the less well off.

    I think she pulls her punch, though, when she asserts that the redistributive mechanisms, like Social Security, we have implemented have staved off similar violence and divisions.

    That may have been so in the past, but we are headed for the same fate.

    From a small note in today’s P.I.:

    “U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert takes listener calls on “Weekday” at 9 a.m. Friday on KUOW-FM (94.9)”

    Now, I’m sure that Reichert will not have agreed to take calls on the radio without having Republican operatives already lined up to flood the call boards with “Doing a GREAT JOB, Dave….!” and “Why are the Democrats such fools….” sort of calls. He may even have a few set to call in on a back line with calls designed to allow him to talk about his rehersed “messages”, such as “Tell us about your “suburban gang initiative”, Sherriff Dave…”.

    But what if a couple of hundred of us called in, asking him some truely substantive questions: like asking him to explain why he publically stated that he only votes the way the Republican Congressional leadership tells him to?

    Roger Rabbit spews:


    For the last year, we’ve been forced to listen to Dino LOSSI’s fans rant about King County votes they claim magically appeared out of nowhere to put Gregoire over the top.

    If they were consistent, they would be ranting this morning about the apparent robbery down in Mexico, where that Obrador guy and his supporters are complaining about 2.5 million “votes” they claim magically appeared out of nowhere to bring his opponent from behind into the lead.

    But wait! Obrador is a lefty who wants to help the POOR! That makes everything different! Our resident trollfucks are willing to wail and gnash their teeth only when the rightwing candidate is perceived to be getting fucked over — in which case they shamelessly shill away, with no evidence, no facts, no reality to back their assertions.

    But when it comes to a lefty candidate and his supporters getting fucked over — no matter how compelling the evidence — they’re shameless apologists for election fraud and theft.

    Why? For many reasons:

    They’re dishonest.
    They have no morals.
    They only care about power.
    They want power for selfish ends.
    They’re liars.
    They’re thugs.
    They want to bring back slavery.

    and, above all, they’re


    “When you cut right through it, right-wing ideology is just ‘dime-store economics’ – intended to dress their ideology up and make it look respectable. You don’t really need to know much about economics to understand it. They certainly don’t. It all gets down to two simple words. ‘Cheap labor’. That’s their whole philosophy in a nutshell … cheap-labor conservatives are defenders of corporate America – whose fortunes depend on labor. … The more desperately you need a job, the cheaper you’ll work …. If you are a wealthy elite – or a ‘wannabe’ like most dittoheads – your wealth, power and privilege is enhanced by a labor pool, forced to work cheap.

    “Cheap-labor conservatives don’t like the minimum wage, or other improvements in wages and working conditions. … Cheap-labor conservatives like ‘free trade’, NAFTA, GATT, etc. … (b)ecause there is a huge supply of desperately poor people in the third world, who … will work cheap. … Cheap-labor conservatives don’t like unions … (b)ecause when labor ‘sticks together’, wages go up. …

    “Cheap-labor conservatives support every right-wing authoritarian hoodlum in the third world. Cheap-labor conservatives support foreign assassinations, covert intervention in foreign countries, and every other ‘black bag’ operation the CIA can dream up, even against constitutional governments, elected by the people of those countries … cheap-labor conservatives have a peculiar definition of ‘freedom’. I mean, just what do these guys consider to be ‘tyranny’…. Take a look. ‘Social spending’ … (w)hile they don’t mind tax dollars being used for killing people, using their taxes to feed people is ‘stealing’. Minimum wage laws. Every piece of legislation ever proposed to improve working conditions…. Labor unions, who ‘extort’ employers … public education … (c)ivil rights legislation … (p)ublic broadcasting…. See the pattern? Cheap-labor conservatives support every coercive and oppressive function of government, but call it ‘tyranny’ if government does something for you ….

    “Even here, cheap-labor conservatives are complete hypocrites. Consider the following expenditures: 150 billion dollars a year for corporate subsidies. 300 billion dollars a year for interest payments on the national debt – payments that are a direct transfer to wealthy bond holders, and buy us absolutely nothing…. That’s all in addition to the Defense budget – large chunks of which go to corporate defense contractors. Is the pattern becoming clearer? These cheap-labor Republicans have no problem at all opening the public purse for corporate interests. It’s ‘social spending’ on people who actually need assistance that they just ‘can’t tolerate.'”


    So why are the CHEAP LABOR CONSERVATIVES worried about who wins in Mexico? Why, because of cheap labor, of course. If the government there actually does something for poor people, Mexico’s masses of poor might want to get paid more than $1.25 a day for making cars that used to be made by American union labor. The American appliance manufacturer who closed his plant because the governor of Michigan refused his demand that the state pay his workers’ wages also is using cheap Mexican labor now. These guys don’t want a socialist government in Mexico. They only want a socialist government in America (limited to corporate socialism, of course).

    Yes, folks, the wingers are interested in Mexico’s election — and will steal it if they can — because they want Mexico to remain a corrupt corporate playground where anything goes and above all labor is CHEAP. They can’t stand the idea of a Mexican economy without serfs. That’s why they’ll fuck with the Mexican election if they can get away with it.

  12. 13

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Why should liberals care if rightwing thugs steal Mexico’s elections? Here are some reasons why:

    Because liberals ought to care about exploited poor people, wherever they are, on general principle.

    Because if rightwing thugs can keep Mexico’s masses poor, so they have a large pool of cheap labor right next door, they will eliminate American family-wage jobs and move the work to Mexico.

    Because if rightwing thugs succeed in keeping Mexico’s masses poor, in order to have access to serf labor, desperate Mexicans will continue pouring over the border into the U.S. in order to survive, bloating our population and straining our public services.

    Because they’re assholes, and we ought to despise them for being despicable, on general principles.

    There’s more reasons, but this should be sufficient to get a discussion started.

    Douglas MacArthur was a megomaniacal cocksucker who nearly started a nuclear war with China. Harry Truman had the guts to fire him.

    As for Patton; he was a Nazi sympathizer after the war and a committed racist. He thought blacks could never be soldiers and said this about Jews:

    “We entered a synagogue which was packed with the greatest stinking bunch of humanity I have ever seen. Either these Displaced Persons never had any sense of decency or else they lost it all during their period of interment by the Germans…My personal opinion is that no people could have sunk to the level of degradation these have reached in the short space of four years.”

They are so self-absorbed that they think that posting on a blog with a fake name is actually courage, and that their half-baked Marxist drivel actually makes a difference. Their heroes are traitors like Cindy Sheehan and Lt. Watada; real heros like Patton and MacArthur,who gave them their right to spew anti-American trash on blogs, are considered racists and warmongers. They are so consumed by guilt and self-hatred that their prime target is not the enemy in Iraq and Afghanistan, but their own country. That’s their idea of courage.

    Nope, that’s not enough to pay for these Progressive dreams….
    Let’s see, GasTax pays for roads for cars. That makes sense….it’s just a matter of how much is fair and accountability for the WSDOT.
    But Bikers are getting a FREE-RIDE!
    How fair is that?
    Perhaps we could put a surcharge on ALL bikes purchased, all Bike Parts etc. About a 100% tax would be fair….don’t you think?

    Mr. Cynically Irrelevant doesn’t enjoy anything.

Because they pay their infinitessimal share? Road funding comes from a broad array of sources, and yes, most cyclists are also tax paying motorists, but that’s beside the point.

    Why do some assholes think they own the road, why are they allowed behind the wheel, and given the very reasonable fear of harm prompted by all the bodily threats they make, are we entitled to pull them from their vehicles and beat them to death with our Kryptonite bike locks?

    Wow, talk about a nonsense argument, even as irreverant sarcasm. It’s not the USE of the roads that folks are paying for, it’s the UPKEEP. You could ride thousands of bikes a day on any normal paved road for years and never have to perform any maintenance on that road. Semis,huge suvs and regular cars (in decreasing order of severity) cause 99.9+% of the degradation of the roads. SO, if u want bikers to pay for 0.01% of the upkeep that’s only fair, but it’ll probably cost more in paper work than it’s worth.

    Hey Irrelevant, I am a bike commuter and I’d be happy to pay a tax on my bike and get off the road – if all those taxes were used to build bike trails that I could commute on. Bikers shouldn’t have to pay for the roads that autos use. You are lucky we are riding bikes because there are that many fewer cars on the road causing traffic jams, pile-up and pollution. I hate riding with traffic because its people like Irrelevant who make it dangerous and I would vote to ban all non-commercial auto traffic from the city center. That would fix congestion, road maintaice and a host of other problems all at once.

    You guys complain about your treatment in traffic and part of that is justified. HOWEVER, which of you guys can answer some simple questions:

    1. When a bike is going to stop or turn, what are you supposed to do?

    2. Do stop signs apply to you?

    3. When there are people on the sidewalk, is it OK for you to ride there — especially at full speed?

    4. When there is no sidewalk and traffic is at a standstill, should you: a) ride between cars, b) stop like everyone else or c) ride on the packed dirt side of the road?

    5. Are you financially responsible when you scratch or dent cars while trying to weave in traffic? In the even you do bump into a car, should you stop, talk to the car’s driver and see if you’ve damaged the car in any way?

    Maybe one of the things that you can talk about on the show is how in this election, all the traditional right wing dirty tricks didn’t work? No matter how much the right wing spin machine lied, distorted or manipulated, it wasn’t enough to win. This gives us hope for a better America. When all the right had to do was lie in order to win, they were natural liars so they naturally won. Now that it America expects more, they don’t have a chance.

    Hey folks, it’s NOT a “bike lane” project. This bridge is over I-90, and requires trucks to exit the interstate to get around it. Primary reason for the project is freight mobility.

    Secondarily, the new bridge will have sidewalks fro pedestrians, and a bike lane.

    Roger Rabbit spews:


    I’m with you on that one, Cyn. Bicycles should be required to have license plates, for which a user fee is charged, for two reasons:

    1) So pedestrians injured by bicyclists can get a license number if the bicyclist hits-and-runs or refuses to identify himself.

    2) To require bicyclists to help pay for the public rights of way they use.

    Bicyclists also should be required to have liability insurance.
    Big fines for no license or no insurance.

    There is absolutely no reason to treat bicycles differently than motor vehicles, or to treat bicyclists differently from motorists. Hell, nowadays, many bicycles ARE motor vehicles. I’ve seen gas engines on scooters and skateboards, too.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    I have an idea … instead of spending $800,000 on a bike bridge over I-90 in Moses Lake, let’s shitcan the bike path and spent $1 million on stop lights and a crosswalk across I-90 in Moses Lake. That way, we can (1) spend more money, (2) create a traffic bottleneck, and (3) kill more bicyclists. Three birds with one stone. This plan should appeal to those whose thinking is characterized by a total lack of logic and reasonableness.

    “Secondarily, the new bridge will have sidewalks fro pedestrians, and a bike lane…”

    Read the fine print on the project site:

    “Funding from the 2005 Transportation Budget for a bicycle and pedestrian bridge is combined with this project, dependent on the outcome of Initiative 912.”

    The original reconstruction of the bridge was already planned. The bike/pedestrian after thought is funded through the 9.5 cent increase.

    Roger Rabbit spews:


    There’s two sides to this story. First of all, we spend a LOT of money on roads to move commerce and get people to work with motor vehicles. Motor vehicles are necessary to the economy, bicycles are not. It’s unreasonable for bicyclists to expect they can hinder or hold up motor traffic on expensive roadways built for motor traffic because they feel like riding a bicycle.

    Secondly, all bicyclists aren’t innocent, either. There are motorists and bicyclists who, frankly, deserve each other. Undoubtedly there are cases of motorists harassing bicyclists; but I’ll bet the majority of bicyclists who bike in car traffic and get hit, got hit because they did something stupid, like cutting off a moving car. CARS CAN’T STOP IN 6 INCHES! DRIVERS CAN’T SEE BICYCLISTS TO THEIR REAR OR RIGHT. Bicyclists who endanger themselves by expecting drivers to get out of THEIR way are asking for what they all too frequently get.

    Roger Rabbit spews:


    You’re missing the main point, Larry. Bicycles take up space on roads. Practically speaking, as much space as a car, because the driver behind has to allow as much following distance as he would for a car.

    The pavement space occupied by the bicycle costs big money. The largest expense is putting the pavement there in the first place. Maintenance costs are not solely due to motor traffic; roads weather, and would degrade even if no motor traffic ever traveled on them. Frost heaving, ground swelling, moisture, heat and cold — all take their toll on pavement.

    Bicyclists seem to assume that since the roads are there anyway for motor traffic, their use by bicycles imposes no costs on the public that pays for building and maintaining roads. This would be true only if there is excess roadway capacity. However, when roads are at full capacity, and accomodating bicycle traffic requires widening the roadway to add a bicycle lane, or building more lanes to accomodate the cars displaced by bicycles, the cost of providing space for bicycle traffic on paved roadways is extremely high — and bicyclists pay nothing for it. Look at all the bike lanes in Seattle — every one of them required either widening an existing roadway or eliminating a car lane — and the cost of building or marking the bike lanes was millions of dollars. Cyclists paid nothing. It was all subsidized by those who pay taxes on motor vehicles and fuel.

    Some of these PINHEADS try very hard to rationalize all these FREE bikelanes saying they also drive cars????? THAT DOESN’T MATTER YOU CLOWNS!!! The GasTax is from vehicles and should be used for VEHICLES.
    The next fallacy is that the Bike Lannes really don’t cost anything! What a crock of shit! They aren’t riding their bikes on AIR are they???? It sure looks like those wheels are on pavement….FREE PAVEMENT that they didn’t pay for with their sweat glands. So how much have these Bike Lanes COST gas users???? MILLIONS!!! How much have bike users paid??? ZERO!!!!
    The other fallacy I read was that Bike Lanes require ZERO maintenance. What a bunch of shit that is. I see bikers tossing garbage and having shit fall off their bikes all the time. PLUS the huge cost is the CONSTRUCTION COSTS!!! It’s not FREE Construction CLOWNS!!!

    I ride a bike. Bikers need to start paying their way….starting with the Moses Lake project.

    I don’t know but I suspect an unlighted bicyclists riding at night trying to sue a driver who he ran out in front of would be treated exactly as a pedestrian tryin to do the same thing when being hit jaywalking. ‘Gee I am sorry about that whole in your lungs, but that really was your fault.’

    Bamajenk @ 5

    Interesting point. How does Tim Sheldon get to serve in TWO ELECTED OFFICES at the same time? He is State Senator from District 35 (elected as a Democrat in 2002) and County Commissioner from Mason County (elected as an Independent in 2004).

    Unfortunately, state law doesn’t prohibit HOLDING two elected offices at the same time. It only prohibits someone from RUNNING for two elected offices in the same election.

    We should change this. If someone holds an elected office, and gets elected to another office, their first office should automatically be vacated when they are sworn into their second office.

    Or we could do even better, like they did in Florida. If someone holds a state or local elected office, and runs for a different office, they automatically forfeit their existing office when they file their candidacy papers for the second office. Unless their existing office would otherwise be up for election in the same election in which they are seeking another office.

    It is bad enough that someone in Washington can run for a second office, and hold on to their existing office, simply because the election years for the two offices are different. It is completely ridiculous that someone like Tim Sheldon can hold two elected offices at once (and with different party affiliations to boot).

I’ve seen them weave in and out of car traffic, weave out of the bike lane into the car lane, cut off cars. And if you tried to say anything, what do you think would happen? The cyclist will get angry and hostile, that’s what.

If a candidate is going to ask the public to commit to them for the full term, they should be willing to offer the same commitment.

    The thing is, just as motorists who fly through crosswalks need to be ticketed, and pedestrians who jaywalk need to be ticketed, bicyclist who break the law should get tickets. This is enforcement of existing laws that doesnt happen.

    Geeez, what is it with conservatives and child pornography? Why to they insist on writing about children in desperate circumstances being forced into the sex trade?

    Hindsight being 20/20, is there any doubt now why the Christian Right and the rest of the conservatives were so infatuated with Ken Starr’s report about Clinton’s sexual affairs?

    ” * Filmmaker Michael Moore insists that corporations are evil and claims he doesn’t invest in the stock market due to moral principle. But Moore’s IRS forms, viewed by Schweizer, show that over the past five years he has owned shares in such corporate giants as Halliburton, Merck, Pfizer, Sunoco, Tenet Healthcare, Ford, General Electric and McDonald’s.

    * Staunch union supporter Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) has received the Cesar Chavez Award from the United Farmworkers Union. But the $25 million Northern California vineyard she and her husband own is a non-union shop.

    The hypocrisy doesn’t end there. Pelosi has received more money from the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees union than any other member of Congress in recent election cycles.

    But the Pelosis own a large stake in an exclusive hotel in Rutherford, Calif. It has more than 250 employees. But none of them are in a union, according to Schweizer, author of “The Bushes: Portrait of a Dynasty” and a regular contributor to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and other periodicals.

    The Pelosis are also partners in a restaurant chain called Piatti, which has 900 employees. The chain is – that’s right, a non-union shop.

    * Ralph Nader is another liberal who claims that unions are essential to protect worker rights. But when an editor of one of his publications tried to form a union to ameliorate miserable working conditions, the editor was fired and the locks changed on the office door.

    * Self-described socialist Noam Chomsky has described the Pentagon as “the most vile institution on the face of the earth” and lashed out against tax havens and trusts that benefit only the rich.

    But Chomsky has been paid millions of dollars by the Pentagon over the last 40 years, and he used a venerable law firm to set up his irrevocable trust to shield his assets from the IRS.

    * Air America radio host Al Franken says conservatives are racist because they lack diversity and oppose affirmative action. But fewer than 1 percent of the people he has hired over the past 15 years have been African-American.

    * Ted Kennedy has fought for the estate tax and spoken out against tax shelters. But he has repeatedly benefited from an intricate web of trusts and private foundations that have shielded most of his family’s fortune from the IRS.

    One Kennedy family trust wasn’t even set up in the U.S., but in Fiji.

    Another family member, environmentalist Robert Kennedy Jr., has said that it is not moral to profit from natural resources. But he receives an annual check from the family’s large holdings in the oil industry.

    * Barbra Streisand has talked about the necessity of unions to protect a “living wage.” But she prefers to do her filming and postproduction work in Canada, where she can pay less than American union wages.

    * Bill and Hillary Clinton have spoken in favor of the estate tax, and in 2000 Bill vetoed a bill seeking to end it. But the Clintons have set up a contract trust that allows them to substantially reduce the amount of inheritance tax their estate will pay when they die.

    Hillary, for her part, has written and spoken extensively about the right of children to make major decisions regarding their own lives. But she barred 13-year-old daughter Chelsea from getting her ears pierced and forbid the teen from watching MTV or HBO.

    * Billionaire Bush-basher George Soros says the wealthy should pay higher, more progressive tax rates. But he holds the bulk of his money in tax-free overseas accounts in Curacao, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.

    Schweizer writes: “Liberals claim to support affirmative action but don’t practice it. They support higher taxes but set up complicated tax shelters to avoid paying them. They claim to be ardent environmentalists but abandon their cause when it impinges on their own property rights.

    “The reality is that liberals like to preach in moral platitudes. They like to condemn ordinary Americans and Republicans for a whole host of things – racism, lack of concern for the poor, polluting the environment, and greed.

    “But when it comes to applying those same standards to themselves, liberals are found to be shockingly guilty of hypocrisy.

    “The media and the American people need to hold them accountable.”

    Your living up to your “freep” legend. You post an article about a pedophile and somehow that has something to do with “democrats” and “democratic thinking”. Have you ever heard of Jim West?

    The LA Times article has a similar disconnect. A hospital’s dysfunctional policy on liver transplants? Huh?

    Last but not least a plug on whacko tin-hat journalist propagandist, Richard Miniter. Here’s a quote from an Amazon review:

    Before I buy a book like this I like to read one chapter that I covers a topic I know something about. Then, if that chapter is accurate I can be realtivley assured the rest of the book is accurate. In this case I read the chapter about “100,000 Iraqi dead.” The author tries to dispute the Johns Hopkins study that found it most likely that at over 100,000 Iraqis have been killed in the recent war. Unfortunately the author is clueless about the study and relies instead on comments from other media personalities to pad his dispute. In fact, the study was done by a group that has done several other studies in war zones and for which the results have been widely accepted. Since they used the same standard techniques in the Iraq study, it is not likely he got less accurate results. A few illustrations of the authors attempt to discredit the study will suffice to discredit the author. 1) The author claims the study included the massive deaths in Falluja, so skewed the results. If he had read the study himself, he would have found this is not true. But he relied on a media personality for that morsel, so he just repeats that disinformation. 2) He claims the study authors did not see death certificates for those who died, and just trusted the surviors for the facts. In fact, the study says they saw death certificates for over 70% of the deaths recorded. 3) He takes issue with the study methodology, escpecially the way the researches used smaller or larger areas (still random, however) to get enough reponses to make the data reliable. If he knew anything about statistical methods he would know this is a non-issue.

    In short, based on this disinformative chapter I do not believe the rest of the book will be reliable and is most likely simply other disinformation to push the authors political agenda. Don’t waste your money on this trash.

    Primarily financed by private-sector and public-employee unions, the opposition was so afraid of the governor’s initiatives, that they spent $150 million to defeat them. (Schwarzenegger spent $7 million of his own money on the campaign.) This had to be a pyrrhic victory for his enemies.

    You guys gotta make up your mind (note the singular). Is GWB the evil mastermind running the Far Right Machine or is he a simpleton and puppet?

    Personally, I think he’s a guy who says WAAAYYY too much and lacks an understanding of subtlety and nuance. He also has too much of a frat boy attitude and ends up going along with the crowd when his frat brothers (the Far Right) come up with some crazy scheme. Loyalty is good, but unquestioning loyalty is bad — especially in a leader. Great to delegate to “experts,” but I fear GWB doesn’t ask enough challenging questions of said “experts.”

    Another example… I liked Rummy at first because he appeared to shoot straight and didn’t take any crap from the media. Turns out he was WAY more arrogant and myopic than was healthy for the country. Going into Iraq wasn’t the mistake. Going in with no contingency plans was.

And, no doubt about it, if David “the mother beater” Irons did pass a Republican Detector Test and I called the Carlson show, I would have been put right through to the top of the caller list to make my on-air apology on the day before the elections. And that’s the truth, because you know and I know Carlson would have been salivating over that call of contrition from a Liberal.

    Two bad cell phone connections? C’mon! Did your dog eat your homework, too??? Were you abducted by aliens from outer space??? Did you get lost in some time/space continuum??? Geeez, you’re starting to sound like John Belushi in the scene form the Blues Brothers when they’re down in the sewer and they get confronted by Cari Fisher with an M-16.

    KVI has a toll free number, you could’ve called from any landline phone. A man of his WORD would have done so in meeting his obligations. Your honor was on the line and instead of keeping your promise, and your integrity, you’re now making excuses. That’s the bottom line.

    On top of that, you want me to validate the veracity of your efforts with one of THOSE champions of the Culture of Corruption at KVI. Haahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Puuuuhhh–leasssse, don’t insult your own intelligence, let alone mine. That lying son of a bitch would’ve lied just like Bush, Cheney, Libby, Rove, DeLay, Frist, Limbaugh, Hannity, O’Reilly, and any one else that considers themselves to be a “conservative.”

    You said you KNEW John personally and could arrange it. Did you not?

    In the end, you over promised and under delivered. Is that how you service your clients? Of course not. But when it was your honor on the line you should have gone the extra mile just like you would’ve done for your clients.

    Now you’ve revealed your true self, another pawn in the Culture of Corruption that is conservatism. It’s a shame, too, I thought maybe, just maybe, you were different from the rest of the dishonest conservatives. Turns out, you’re not. You’re all cut from the same evil lying cloth that drapes Satan.

    Oh, well. I wonder what PacMan has to say about a fellow conservative not keeping his word? He’ll be an apologist, too, just like the rest of you who keep apologizing for Bush’s lies. Like firing anyone in his administration for being involved in leaking the identity of a covert CIA operative.

    60% of Americans believe that Bush is not honest. ’nuff said.

Call him GBS, and when he corroborates my story what will you say next? I did everything as I SAID I WOULD! You need to “make the call”. Dream on GBS, as I did fulfill my obligations!!!

    Yes I have seen the latest poll. The Independents have turned on him lately. But the reasons are more complicated than you identify in your latest entry. See the Fox News Opinion Dynamics Poll. It’s not biased toward democrats like the ABC-WaPo or CBS-NYT Polls.

    ChristmasGhost: I was in LA land last week and even the LA Times did mention the teachers taxes oops… teachers dues will have to be raised to pay off their union imposed problems.

    Regarding the slur I thought Thomas Jefferson said this: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal”. I guess in donk land they use handicapped people to make their worthless points. What’s next; the donks saying we act like that German guy who had 4 children with his handicapped sister? Naah, he was one of those free love fringie types who support the donkocratic party!

    GBS: Whatever you say man. Next to DJ, you are the brains of the ASS here so why argue. You didn’t call Matt so The Prosecution Rests.

    GBS spews:


    You’re not the prosecution, you’re the defense. Remember? You didn’t go on-air to fulfill your obligations.

    You can still make this right, Puddybud. All you have to do is call Carlson, arrange the time to make your on-air rebuke of David “the mother beater” Irons for not taking the Republican Detector Test, post the date and time on HA at least 48 hours in advance, we’ll tune in and listen, then your honor will be restored.

    Now what’s wrong with that idea?

    Afterall, if I tried to call in but got a “bad” cell connection, wouldn’t you want me to do the same?

    Of course you would.

    Now be a man, and live up to your obligations.

    See? No arguement, just resolving the problems by finding common ground. Then, we can go back to arguing politics.

    Cynical and all righties: Whenever Lucite thinks he is saying sumtin pithy and colorful, it always backfires.

    Hey Lucite, since LEFTIST PINHEADS don’t support children with a mom and a dad (Janie and two mommies, Eric has two daddies) how will they know any better? If LEFTIST PINHEADS taught the inner city kids not to procreate early, the abortion industry would be low. If LEFTIST PINHEADS taught inner city kids to practice procreation with a rubber, the abortion industry would be broke. If you taught the inner city kids anything, they would be educated for a life besides flipping burgers. If abortions were not the law of the land, maybe Al Gore would be the president in his second term. Stiffman Gore, what a Bore!!! I pity the fool … BA Barracus.

  17. 251

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    These LEFTIST PINHEADS could give a flying fuck about these poor inner city kids. All they care about is to TALK about how mistreated they are and do whatever it takes to keep these poor kids beholdin’ to LEFTIST PINHEADS.
    I think more and more educated blacks in America are seeing that the LEFTIST PINHEADS could care less and take them for granted….and their votes. I see a huge reversal in the Black==Democrat trend over the next 10 years.

    The Bush-dolt and his ‘Pube masters worked SO HARD to steal all three branches of govt. – and they really didn’t get much done !!

    Country bankrupt = no more tax cuts.

    Bush weaker & dumber every day = ‘Pube agenda derailed.

    Discount Army led by airheads = crisis in enlistment.

    Starved FEMA = two swift, brutal kicks below the bible belt.

    Arrogance & ignorance = no international deals or friends.

    Feeble, incompetent cabinet = approval rating dropping daily.

    fleischer, rove, delay, ashcrack, powell, etc. = bye bye.

    Rabid desire to destroy democracy = govt. size grows by 1 million people.

    Saudi Prince cock in Bush’s mouth = SUV clowns crying as their precious tax cut is pumped into their silly gas-tanks.

    Fatty foods & mental retardation = no gains on the Supreme Court.

    Thinly disguised bigots = no progress with Black voters.

    so many failures, so many conservative buffoons & god-lickers …

    I’m totally delighted, totally !! Can’t believe it – but they actually succeeded in inserting their own heads into their own rectums. Other than the smell – I really don’t see much damage !

    If this is the best they can do when in total control — we don’t have much to worry about.

    9/11 handed them a golden goose – and they killed it !!! hahahaha wow

    I always knew their dopeyness would defeat them eventually – but I had no idea how quickly and completely they’d crash.

    Normal people always have to remember that the ‘conservative’ disease is self-defeating. They can’t help but fail.

    When we return to power (sooner rather than later, apparently) we won’t have much trouble sending them to the back of the bus for another 50 years, just like last time.

    God is definitely a Democrat !! No doubt about that. We always win.

    Look at the last three oafs the ‘Pubes have given us: a Gimp, a Wimp, and a Simp.

    Now we have three more years to watch them roast like swine on a spit, and we don’t have to take responsibility for anything that happens. We can piss on their heads any time we want. Can his ratings actually go negative? Will he start drinking again?
    I don’t know – but it’s all good.

    Cynical: While in Atlanta recently I was listening to the radio as I was traveling to the gig. An articulate, college educated, Gulf War I veteran black woman from Georgia came on, (I said um, um, uh) and discussed how educated middle class blacks are fed up with the Jesse/Al garbage and her whole family from her and her husband, their siblings up to her grandmother voted Republican and gave five major reasons why. The two I remember were do nothing donks and continual class warefare rhetoric. Where’s the beef lefties, What are your plans?

    Byron York said on the radio last night as I drove home from the airport. If DeLay is convicted and the evidence is awfully flimsy he said, the Donks have nothing as an alternative to the Repubs. Their poll numbers are not higher because the populace remembers 40 years of do nothingness.

    Black America is fed up with being pandered to by phoney’s like rujax….they do nothing, create race warfare that results in nothing positive.
    These LEFTIST PINHEADS honestly believe they have done something positive for Blacks….when the statistics on illegitimate births is skyrocketing. It’s really sad. Jesus has done way more for Black America than Jesse, Al and feel-good, power-hungry LEFTIST PINHEAD like rujax.
    I’ll bet Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson look at pandering, pathetic whitey LEFTIST PINHEADS and say to each other

    Where have you been???
    I have REPEATEDLY said over the past months that this is a modified version of Brad Paisley’s song.
    Hard to imagine a LEFTIST PINHEAD like yersef listenin’ to Country Western…..if so, perhaps there is a glimmer of hope. The vast majority of Country-Western singers are unabashed Republicans. They support our troops 100%….instead of pretending to like the Peter, Paul and Mary crowd. I don’t consider it support when the LEFTIST PINHEADS say our mission is murder….but we support the troops! Gimmee a break. A bunch of pansy-asses who willingly jeopardize the future and security of our Country to make points with the LEFTISTS, MARXISTS and other members of the fringe lunatic LEFT.
    Yup, Country Western is where it is at. Gun rack and cooler of Bud in the back of a Dodge Ram…..and willing to fight for freedoms.

    Axl-Rod spews:

    no one should support anything 100%, obviously.

    The last 6 people returning from Iraq (that I’ve talked to) have said the same thing – they don’t think we’re making progress, they don’t know why we’re there, they don’t think the Iraqis are capable of democracy, they feel abandoned by the Bush administration, they feel underfunded and underequipped and 4 of them are leaving the Service, one after 17 years, another after 10. They feel in danger all the time with no way to fight back. One guy had movies on his computer and showed me how terribly exposed they are. The equipment is constantly jamming from the sand. They have a million stories about the incompetence of their commanders. Their biggest fear is being crippled and winding up in some VA hell-hole.

    None of them said anything about Dodge Rams or C&W music. Nobody blamed “the Left” for the failures of this mission. Does anyone bother to ask them, or is it just me?

    This is patriotism to you?
