Yesterday, the incredibly irrelevant and jism breathed quisling Joe Lieberman(R-Tel Aviv) strongly suggested that we would be hit by a terror attack in 2009 -- and that this should make us pull the lever for McSame......you know because he would continue the strong policies of Chimpeor Maxixmus that have been so successful in making us safer as we learn that Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda is back to pre-9/11 strength and is capable of another large-scale attack.
Just as it had on the day before 9/11, Al Qaeda now has a band of terrorist camps from which to plan and train for attacks against Western targets, including the United States. Officials say the new camps are smaller than the ones the group used prior to 2001. However, despite dozens of American missile strikes in Pakistan since 2002, one retired C.I.A. officer estimated that the makeshift training compounds now have as many as 2,000 local and foreign militants, up from several hundred three years ago.AIPAC Joe should know. It WILL happen and will all be the fault of Obama/Clinton/Carter.
We must elect another republican or it will mean our destruction. The "liberal media" is playing this old song every chance it gets and is also starting to beat the drums for war with Iran.
Heckuva job, fuckwipes.

We had to stay shut down yesterday due to the threat of thunderstorms -- they kept popping up all over the place. When your house gets zapped no matter how many lightning rods you have, you learn the hard way to keep everything unplugged. Stupid thunderstorms. Stupid head hurting.

Joe Lieberman predicts that the new president will face a terror attack in 2009. Maybe he should have used his crystal ball to tell him that every single justification he gave for Iraq was false.-- from fark.com. Fucked fact: the rethug-gargling yambag at politico took the insufferable quisling's comment to be an endorsement of Saint McMaverick. Which it probably was, but still...

Weird sect-member, dog-abuser and chronic flipflopper Mitt Romney tops the vice-presidential list for John 'pancakes' McCain.
“Romney as favorite” is the hot buzz in Republican circles, and top party advisers said the case is compelling. But lack of personal chemistry could derail the pick.Dawg!
Campaign insiders say McCain (R-Sainthood) maverickingly plans to name his running mate very shortly after Sen. Barack Obama does, as part of what one campaign planner called a bold, manly “bounce-mitigation strategy.” The Democratic convention is in late August, a week ahead of the Republicans.

What a fucking whore... With all the posts going around blogtopia (y!sctp!) last week regarding the media and how it reported "personal wealth" in the John Edwards (always) and John McCain (... crickets ...) campaigns, what does wHoward Kurtz choose to cover in his latest column? Saint Timmeh Russert. Who's still dead.
Oh, by the way, the much-better-written aftermath-of-the-death-of-Saint-Timmy piece can be read here.

Cry me a fucking river. Maybe most of you had nothing to do with the "nastiest of campaign smears," but now you're whining about it? Maybe beating the unholy snot out of the cretins responsible might do loooooads to restoring your reputations. And their pathetic, knuckledragging enablers in cuntserva turd media who are even now using the term and/or are asking where all the swift boaters are (malkin, fretardia, politico, powerline, andrew sullivan, american'thinker'...). Just a thought.
In a related story, those
professionals fucking repuke-lapping nincompoops at CNN are accusing Gen. Wesley Clark of "swiftboating" -- for saying McInsane's time as a POW doesn't automatically bestow upon him any magical presidental powers. I was a prisoner in a bad marriage, but that doesn't qualify me to run for dogcatcher, much less the presidency. Well, you know what I mean.
My head hurts.
Anyway, good luck with that, guys. Because now the right is swiftboating Wesley Clark. And don't believe all the bullshit that he "attacked" McSaint or "blasted his record," because that's all it is. Complete and utter bullshit. Rethug manufactured outrage as usual. Read the transcript here and see for yourself. Because you won't hear about it on cable news.

Seriously, WTF? I would've killed for plates like this:
The Division of Motor Vehicles in North Carolina issued 10,000 license plates that began with "WTF" before someone spoiled the fun by complaining.Humorless poopers! (Thanks to reader Catherine for the link!)
DMV officials got word of the plates last July when a 60-year-old technology teacher from Fayetteville complained about the plate after her teenage grandchildren clued her in.

What did he even mean by that??

My friends, the Senate's most absent member is working for you!
How often has John McCain been away from the Senate? Well, let's put it this way: At this point, he has missed more votes than even South Dakota Democrat Tim Johnson, who couldn't work for almost a year after suffering a brain hemorrhage in late 2006.

Who says irony is dead? It's like some bizarre twist of 'Opposite Day.' An actual quote from the corpulant antichrist:
“[T]hey’ve got a very callous view about our nation’s security and interests... [T]hey put our country at risk when they reveal the details of a program that saved America from attacks."Shit on toast. The fucking nerve... Why he didn't instantly get struck by lightning will forever be one of God's little mysteries.
In other irony-related news, Satan's porcine handmaiden is still trying to label Obama as 'arrogant.' Why isn't he in prison yet??

Defeatocrat b HUSSEIN Osama really should go to Iraq to see how remarkably well things are going. The liberal media won't tell us, but I'm sure we've turned another corner somewhere.
Oh, and in CommanderGuy McCodpiece's other fiasco, a bomb hit a US-led patrol near the Afghan capital on Thursday, killing three.

The White House refused to open pollutants e-mail in one case, tried to silence the EPA in another.
The Bush White House refused to accept the Environmental Protection Agency’s conclusion that greenhouse gases are pollutants that must be controlled, telling agency officials that an e-mail message containing the document would not be opened, the big poopyheads, and they can't make them.I am so glad the grownups are in charge...
White House officials sought to stop the Environmental Protection Agency from submitting a proposed rule that would limit greenhouse-gas emissions from new vehicles, agency sources said Wednesday. And upon learning that EPA had hit the "send" button just minutes earlier, the White House called again to demand that the e-mail be recalled.Swell. Its gotten so bad the guys that are supposed to be helping to keep us safe are quitting in disgust:
A high-ranking political appointee resigned from the Environmental Protection Agency after concluding there was no more progress to be made on greenhouse gases under the Bush misadministration.Government for the people... where did I read that again...

'So since the Republicans have been beating the drum on Obama's alleged presumptuousness and lack of respect for the seal of the President, when's the GOP going to take down its seals for the National Republican Senatorial Committee's Republican Presidential Task Force, Republican Senatorial Inner Circle, and Republican Presidential Roundtable?'He's funny. Doesn't he know IOKIYAR?

Via Alternate Brain:
On June 20, 1996, Senator John McCain allegedly assaulted a family member of a Vietnam War prisoner of war (POW) who was missing in action (MIA), as a group of about 15 family members of POW/MIAs watched in astonishment. Within about one month, five ethics complaints had been filed with the Senate Ethics Committee by five eyewitnesses. But the Senate Ethics Committee refused to investigate the matter.Holy shit...
"He went from a smiling, congenial, happy face to a beet red, totally enraged face in an instant," she said. "I have never seen a senator act in this way. We were all dumbfounded how this happened. He threw his arm up, and she goes flying and Jane [who was in a wheelchair] gets pushed aside as he brushes by her. All I see is people flying and I'm behind him [McCain]... This was assault."

Senator Obama's communications director Robert Gibbs brushes off Satan's porcine handmaiden on Morning Joe:
OK, the last bit was mine. Meanwhile, the pudgy, sweaty Rove, who was probably bullied as a child for being such a pudgy, sweaty, obnoxious twerp, only wishes he could be one of those tall, cool, thin suave guys instead of the disgusting bloater he is, a vast bag of phlegm desperately picking the stained seat of his fraying undies out of his itching, rashy asscrack.

Gee. Another day, another rethug doing something sleazy.
A Republican congressman has sort of apologized for posting a speech on his website without acknowledging that most of it was written by someone else.
Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Naturally., says he did nothing wrong in delivering the heavily borrowed address -- which fellow Republican Sen. John Isakson wrote for his son's high school graduation and has delivered more than 100 times since.Honor and accountability!

From the Duh! Institute and NoShit Daily:
George W. Bush's Justice Department improperly injected politics into hiring programs, a department investigation released on Tuesday found.Let's see that again:
Justice Department officials over the last six years illegally used “political or ideological” factors to hire new lawyers.The Justice Department. The fucking JUSTICE Department. Honor and integrity.

A couple of quivering mouthbreathers at fullfrontalfellatio.org can barely contain themselves as they discuss Saint McSame --
John McCain may be the underdog in the presidential race but you wouldn’t know it from his campaign’s bold stance on energy policy.Oooohh, lip-prints! Bold, greasy lip-prints!
Last week, McCain [-- who lives in landlocked Arizona --]There, fixed it for you. Next week, he'll pledge to send a man to Uranus to drill for oil, just as long as its not psycho aide Charlie "boom boom" Black.
pledged to endflipflopped on ending the 1982 moratorium on offshore gas and oil drilling in the continental United States.
This week, he proposed offering $300 million [of his wealthy wife's beer money!] to any individual that can develop a better car battery.Well this week I'm proposing offering a brazillion to anyone who can develop a flying car that runs on your mom. Fuckwits.

Nearly 40,000 travelers will remember US King George the Insipid's vanity trip to London. Their flights were canceled or delayed at Heathrow Airport to accommodate him, according to British Airways, who is still getting angry calls in the middle of the night insulting their mum.
"The decision to allow that egotistical cowboy and his fleet of aircraft to fly into Heathrow rather than a military base was one all of Heathrow's users could have done without," British Airways' chief executive said, dropping his monocle. "I am very angry that this was allowed."Yeah. We feel your pain.

Update from yesterday's attack: Two U.S. soldiers were killed and three were wounded when a council member opened fire on them after a meeting in a small town south of Baghdad, the U.S. military said.
Above: 2 utter nimrods putting our troops at risk.

My Head is Spinnin'
Is it possible that the American people are so stupid and easily manipulated that they would fall for this steaming pile of Rovian Bullshit?
ABC News’ Christianne Klein reports that at a breakfast with Republican insiders at the Capitol Hill Club this morning, former White House senior aide Karl Rove referred to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, as “coolly arrogant.”Fun Fact: Due to the color of his skin,
“Even if you never met him, you know this guy,” Rove said, per Christianne Klein. “He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by.”
Oh, yeah, the guy who worked as a community organizer, university lecturer in Constitutional law, State Senator, who just paid off his student loans, an elitist, unlike the Straight-talkin Maverick™.
Nice try, Smegmabreath.
