Road map of the highway to hell -

"[Israeli]Defense officials told the JPost last week that they were receiving indications from the United States that the US would be interested in seeing Israel attack Syria."

The giant dead eel tossing contest has been cancelled.

Makin' progress!
Gunmen wearing Iraqi security forces uniforms kidnap 25 people at a Baghdad company, and 4 more US Marines are killed as violence continues to rage across Iraq.

The "Iraqi Interior Ministry may be replaced because things are so bad. Everything is falling apart in Iraq. Bush would call this an opportunity." - John at AmericaBlog.

Bush, Bush supporters, and the judgment of history
Incompetent, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

And the worst part: We twice allowed this incompetent, boorish ("Yo! Blair!") national embarassment into the position of power from which he now subverts our ideals and endangers world stability.

If there's a Bush supporter out there who can name one useful thing he's done, foreign or domestic -- one positive effect he's had, or is ever likely to have, or that will not backfire on us with the impact of an Israeli air strike -- I long to hear it. Because it is starkly clear that history will judge this ill-bred, malignant narcissist to be not just the worst American president, but a force for evil in the world unseen since the glory days of fascism and Communism. And judge those who voted for him to be entirely responsible for the worldwide calamity known as George W. Bush.

- Steve Horowitz.


Excuse me, Mr. Lieberman?
You egotistical Bushhumping sack of shit?

Michael Schiavo righteously rips into the pompous repuke-enabling panderer.

Kiss of death
Bad enough he crossed the aisle to tongue-kiss an incompetent preznit. Kissing up to a failed war preznit's "unmitigated fiasco of the highest order" is even worse. He must pay...

The Democratic electorate is obligated to send a message to its leadership. The war in Iraq was a colossal mistake, it continues to be a colossal mistake, and it will and should cost any and all congressional supporters their jobs if they continue to support this harebrained and thickheaded emasculation of American democracy.

That starts with one Joseph Lieberman. {...}

Things are looking so bad that he has vowed to mount an independent bid in November if he loses to [challenger Ned] Lamont. Doesn't that sound oh-so-statesmanlike?

- the Chicago Sun-Times.

Wehhhhhh! You can have my Senate seat when you pry my cold dead fingers off Bush's shriveled little weener!

Known unknowns, and known assholes
Darth Rumsfeld, space cadet -

"If I were running against conservatives, I would make up a campaign commercial almost entirely of Donald Rumsfeld’s press conferences, because the man is looking - I mean, it’s not just that he seems like a bad Secretary of Defense. He seems literally in a parallel universe and slightly deranged. If you listen to what he said last week about Iraq, he’s living in a different world, not a different country."
-Newsweek editor Fareed Zakaria.

US risking major backlash in Mideast

"We are FUCKED [T]his will just drive up anti-Americanism to new heights." - Richard Haass, Bush's former State Department policy director.

Haass laughed at the president's public optimism. "An opportunity?" Haass said with an incredulous tone. "Lord, spare me. I don't laugh a lot. That's the funniest thing I've heard in a long time. If this is an opportunity, what's Iraq? A once-in-a-lifetime chance?"

Yet another Republican under investigation for yet another stupid, possibly criminal action
Florida rethug candidate for governor in hot water over ethics lapse. Gee.

There is probable cause to believe that gubernatorial candidate Tom Gallagher violated ethics laws by owning stock in two insurance companies while he regulated the industry, the state ethics commission determined Friday.

Rove blasts journalists' role in politics
This is rich - professional smear merchant, enabler of rightwing hate radio and founding father of the swift boaters attacks journalists for their "corrosive role" in politics and government. I wonder which journalists he's {not} talking about.

In a related story...

Sliding into fascism

"The time is coming for us to pull back from the brink again. This must happen before the government gets so strong that it can completely demonize opposition, gain complete control of the media, and develop dossiers on all its citizens. By then it will be too late, and we'll have ourselves to blame."
- from a StarTrib editorial.

But... but... 9/11!

"It’s true that Mr. Lieberman has fallen in love with his image as the nation’s moral compass. But if pomposity were a disqualification, the Senate would never be able to call a quorum."

In a beautiful bitchslapping editorial, the NY Times tells "the Republicans' enabler" to go to hell:

[Quisling Joe Loserman, whiny-ass titty-baby] has shown no interest in prodding his Republican friends into investigating how the administration misled the nation about Iraq’s weapons. There is no use having a senator famous for getting along with Republicans if he never challenges them on issues of profound importance.

If Mr. Lieberman had once stood up and taken the lead in saying that there were some places a president had no right to take his country even during a time of war, neither he nor this page would be where we are today. But by suggesting that there is no principled space for that kind of opposition, he has forfeited his role as a conscience of his party, and has forfeited our support.

[T]his primary is not about Mr. Lieberman’s legislative record. Instead it has become a referendum on his warped version of bipartisanship, in which the never-ending war on terror becomes an excuse for silence and inaction. We endorse Ned Lamont in the Democratic primary for Senate in Connecticut.

A thing of beauty is a joy forever.

Bill Clinton explains the facts of life to harpy skank mAnn Coulter:

W ould Jesus have called someone "sugar tits"?
The passion of the drunken, bigoted a-hole

A blitzed Mel Gibson launched into an obscenity-laced tirade when he was busted on suspicion of drunken driving early yesterday, threatening an officer and making anti-Semitic and sexually abusive remarks, according to a police report.

"My life is f----d," Gibson repeatedly told LA Deputy James Mee, then he embarked on a belligerent, anti-Semitic outburst when he realized he had been busted.

"F-----g Jews. The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world," Mee's report quotes him as saying.

"Are you a Jew?" Gibson asked the deputy, according to the report.

The actor also berated the deputy, threatening, "You motherf----r. I'm going to f--- you," according to Mee's report.

The actor also told the cop he "owns Malibu" and would spend all his money "to get even with me," Mee said in his report.

Gibson noticed a female sergeant on the scene and yelled at her, "What do you think you're looking at, sugar t--s?"

Deputy Mee then wrote an eight-page report detailing of the incident, but higher-ups in the sheriff's department felt it was too inflammatory to release and would merely serve to incite "Jewish hatred."

Saddam look-alike Mel "gznphtb!" Gibson.

It's a pretty sad state of affairs when you can read something like this and actually believe that it's true:

The widening crisis in the Middle East took on graver proportions today when President George W. Bush indicated that if the hostilities continue, they could threaten his traditional August vacation at his Crawford, Texas, ranch...

"For that little twerp to claim I didn't recognize death and suffering -- he can just bite me, for all I care." - Michael "heckuva job" Brown, in an interview for Playboy.

"Brown is an incompetent fool, and everyone in South Mississippi knows it." - Mississippi Rep. Gene Taylor, in reply.

Look, shiny...
Supine whore media responsible for the end of civilization -

"[O]ur media has collapsed. They’ve questioned no one. One of the reasons Bush and Cheney are so daring is that they know there’s nobody to stop them. Nobody is going to write a story that says this is not a war, only Congress can declare war... Nothing makes any sense, and the people are getting very confused. The people are not stupid, but they are totally misinformed."
- Gore Vidal, in the new issue of Duh! magazine.

"Al Gore -- total fag"
Syphilitic attention whore gets carte blanche to spew her bigoted comments on air, with moist, blowfish-like host applauding and creaming his underpants.

Last night on Hardball, pandering moron Chris Matthews asked hateful harpy skank mAnn Coulter, "How do you know that Bill Clinton is gay?"

Coulter responded, "I don't know if he's gay. But Al Gore -- total fag."

And you -- total cunt.

F*ck you guys, I'm going home
Yeah, whatever: SecState Rice to return to the Middle East "when it is right." She's doin' a heckuva job.

Bush's 'regular guy' mode can backfire
... but not with us!!!, the USA Todayhole gushes.

Amid tensions in Iraq and the Middle East, President Bush meets Friday with a special delegation: Taylor Hicks and the American Idol finalists.

Visiting with the most recent stars of the Fox TV show is the latest example of Bush being a regular guy, exuding a down-home style that has been both a blessing and curse to the greatest president evar.

Well, somebody's exuding something.

America's attorney general: moronic mouthbreather with a crush on the president, or goosestepping fascist? Uhhhhhhhhh, yes.

Alberto Gonzales is achieving something remarkable, even miraculous, as attorney general: He is making John Ashcroft look good.

There is no polite way to put this: Gonzales doesn't seem to have an adequate grasp of what's happening in his own department or much influence in setting administration policy. [T]he most disturbing aspect of Gonzales's tenure: his lack of independence from the president.
- Ruth Marcus, the WaPo.

Simmering rage within the GOP
They're mad as hell, and they're going to keep taking it up the ass.

Everything the White House does seems to be aimed at pleasing only one section of the Republican coalition -- the religious right. {...}

I first became aware of the spreading discontent on the right in visiting with people in the church social hall after the funeral this spring for Lyn Nofziger, Ronald Reagan's longtime press spokesman and adviser. The comments about the Bush White House people -- who were notable by their absence at the service -- startled me.

But since then I have heard the refrain over and over: They never reached out to us. They never thought they needed our help. Now they're in trouble. To hell with them.

Whether or not the complaints are justified, they are epidemic.

- David Broder.

Remember: vote republican. Because your best chance of staying alive in these troubled times is to keep a bunch of ineffective, incompetent, uncaring hypocritical assclowns in office. 9/11!

Marching on Lord Lieberman’s castle
Why do blogofascists hate America?

Irving Stolberg, former speaker of the Connecticut House and a longtime Lieberman ally, recently endorsed [challenger Ned] Lamont in the Hartford Courant. He wrote that Lieberman’s “blind support of the Iraq war, begun illegally and a continuing catastrophe, is monstrous.” Stolberg added that Lieberman’s “defense of an incompetent president, a vice president who fits the dictionary definition of fascism and an extremist administration that has perpetrated torture, illegal eavesdropping and a general shredding of the Constitution is insulting to the people who elected him in the first place.”

No sex, please - we're republicans
Won't somebody think of the children?

Cops catch Norm Coleman Sr., the agile 81-year-old father of Minnesota's Senator Coleman, playing escaped convict and the French nanny.

A police report said officers were called to Savoy Inn at 7:40 p.m. to investigate a report that two people were having sex in a car. The police report stated a woman, Patrizia Marie Schrag, 38, also was cited for lewd and disorderly conduct.

Sen. Coleman issued a statement after learning of the citation against his father: "I love my father dearly. I do not condone his actions or behavior, and I am deeply disturbed by what I have learned."
"He clearly has some issues that need to be dealt with," the senator said through a mouth pursed up like an inflamed anus. "And I'm personally going to see that he gets all the help he needs, from his new nursing home in Barrow, Alaska."

"We don't talk to bad people"
Maybe if we ignore them, they'll go away?

The Bush misadministration became "so preoccupied with Iraq that it has no credibility whatsoever with the Arab people,'' said Mehdi Noorbaksh, an international affairs professor at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology.

"This president has a very firm world view that is not about to be changed by facts or realities." And that's a good thing how exactly?

Stick a fork in her
"In only three months, U.S. Senate candidate Katherine Harris has lost almost half of the Republicans who planned to vote for her, according to a new poll."

So what?
Syphilitic attention whore whoring for more attention.

Harpy skank mAnn Coulter says former President Bill Clinton's behavior shows "some level of latent homosexuality." Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I wonder if she gives any thought to how she appears? Ahhh, probably not. C*nt.

Vote us in to keep us out - of jail!
Found this at RimJob's this morning - it's from a Moonie Times editorial. There's no link since I would've had to register first:

If congressional Democrats acquire subpoena power by capturing a majority in either the House or the Senate in this fall's elections, the last two years of the Bush administration will be a nightmare for the White House.

Yeah... mwwwaahahahahaha! If they don't pussy up, anyway.

Today we look at the House, where Democrats must gain 15 seats in November. That would enable them to install Nancy Pelosi as speaker; Alcee Hastings as chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence; Henry Waxman as chairman of the Government Reform Committee; and John Conyers, who is running for re-election on an "impeach the president" platform, as chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

The horror of having the House in the control of these crooks and incompetants is a sure way for this country to fail.

And we know what that's like, believe me.

Citizen diplomacy
Please don't hate us 'cause our president is a dumbass!

With anti-American sentiment at unprecedented levels around the world - a trend that has accelerated sharply under the 'unilateralist and arrogant' reign of King Gropie McStupid - Americans worried about their country's low standing are pushing a grassroots campaign to change foreign perceptions of the United States "one handshake at a time."

"Hey, lookit this! If ah shake this thing hard enough, it makes noise!"

"That's what is so frustrating about watching him deal - or not deal - with Iraq and Lebanon. There's almost nothing to watch. It's not even like watching paint dry, since that, too, is a passage from one state to another. It's like watching dry paint." - Maureen Dowd, July 26.

I'm eating lead paint!

Hmmm, OK, let's try THIS one
Bush's new, new plan to help end Iraq violence -

We're makin' progress, but it's hard work. Terrists hate democracy. We got to stay the course. We got to fight 'em over there. An' obviously the violence in Baghdad is still terrible, and therefore there needs to be more troops. Ah'm the decider, you see. Ah've decided. An' we're makin' progress.

It's all over for Joe Lieberman.

Heckuva job
First you're called a "political imbecile" - then you find out you're being sued for "bungling the evacuation" of US nationals from Lebanon.

{No, not him. One of the other imbecilic bunglers.}

{No, the other one.}

Olbermann to O'Reilly boss: ORLY?
Keith Olbermann responds to humorless asshole Roger Ailes:

"'Over the line?' Where was Roger when O'Reilly defended the Nazi SS stormtroopers from Malmedy in World War II? The SS shot 84 American POW's there in 1944, and three different times in the last year, Bill called has called those dead Americans war criminals. I guess there is no line at Fox News."
Link goes to newsbusters, another site for mouthbreathers. Yuck.

Keeping it in the family

The Bush administration is moving to eliminate the jobs of nearly half of the lawyers at the Internal Revenue Service who audit the tax returns of some of the wealthiest Americans.

IRS deputy commissioner Kevin Brown said that he had ordered the cuts because far fewer people were obliged to pay estate taxes under Bush's legislation.

But six lawyers whose jobs are likely to be eliminated said during interviews that the cuts were just the latest moves to shield people.

Sharyn Phillips, an IRS estate tax lawyer in New York, called the cuts a "backdoor way for the Bush administration to achieve what it cannot get from Congress, which is repeal of the estate tax."

"Now watch this drive."

Biggest baby in the world
No, the other one.

Fox News' humorless CEO Roger Ailes called Keith Olbermann's pranking of crybaby Bill O'Reilly at the Television Critics Association meeting last weekend "over the line." The Dem-bashing Ailes said Olbermann, a "notorious smear merchant," picks on the sweet, helpless O'Reilly just to boost his ratings. What a meanie. Really, what nerve. Someone should just turn off his mike.

Fun fact: Fox News will mark its 10th anniversary with a "Thank You America" tour this fall. Live shows hosted by O'Reilly, Shepard Smith, Sean Hannity, Alan Corpse, and Neil Cavuto will be broadcast from 10 cities around the country. Line up your Hannidate and get your tickets now!

Syphilitic skank shitcanned from second paper

The Augusta Chronicle has become the second newspaper to drop mAnn Coulter's column this month, explaining that her "stridency" had crossed the line.

"We're a conservative editorial page," editor Michael Ryan said, but the vile harpy was "becoming kind of a broken record". "[B]iting commentary is one thing. A personal attack is another -- such as when she slammed 9-11 widows for backing Democrats and allegedly milking the tragedy for political purposes. That charge alone isn't necessarily unfair, but to suggest they were 'enjoying' their husbands' deaths and calling them 'witches' -- well, that's where stridency crosses a line."

The Gazette of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, also dropped Coulter this month. And the Times of Shreveport, La., is considering dropping her column as well.
