Of all the fucking nerve... Bunnypants' pet AG, who turned the US Justice Department into an international joke, is now writing a book "to set the record straight."
"What is it that I did that is so fundamentally wrong, that deserves this kind of response to my service?" the torture-loving wiretapper said during an interview Tuesday.Right. Guess the fucker really can't recall.
During a lunch meeting two blocks from the White House, where he served under his longtime friend, Preznit Fuckwit, Mr. Gonzales said that "for some reason, I am portrayed as the one who is evil in formulating policies that people disagree with. I consider myself a casualty, one of the many casualties of the war on terror."Jeebus. THIS is a casualty of the war on terror:
And THIS, you son of a bitch:
Fucking shameless pathetic dirtbag. Go to hell.

People getting divorced these days are still fighting over who gets the house, but not like they used to.
With nearly one in six homes worth less than the mortgage owed on it, according to Moody’s Economy.com, divorce lawyers and financial advisers around the country say the logistics of divorce have been turned around. “We used to fight about who gets to keep the house,” said Gary Nickelson, president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. “Now we fight about who gets stuck with the dead cow.”As a result, divorce has become more complicated and often more expensive, with lower prospects for money on the other side. Some divorce lawyers say that business has slowed or that clients are deciding to stay together because there are no assets left to help them start over.

Never forget the true Bush legacy, says a righteously pissed off Bob Herbert in this doozy of a NY Times op-ed:
Word. But where was the Times and the rest of the press while all this was actually going on? Oh yeah: five miles up the collective asses of the misadministration. And while demonstrations are a damn good start, I'd rather hear a 'great hue and cry' to stick their miserable lying buttholes on a plane to the Hague. Fuck.

Should we send hugs and flowers??
I imagine New Orleans residents, who never recovered from Bush, are giving him a resounding one-finger salute right about now.
Even topping ignoring a certain PDB, then reading "My Pet Goat" during the 9/11 attacks. Or lying about WMDs. Or illegally wiretapping American citizens. Or sitting in his secret fort playing Pokemons while the economy tanked. Or

Vice President Dick Cheney warns that he and his wife plan to divide their time between their homes in Jackson, northern Virginia and Hades after Cheney thankfully, finally gets his walking papers next month.
Cheney says he has no desire whatsoever to return to
the dictatorshi elected office. He says he's loved his career in politics and torture, but there comes a time to step aside and shoot at people full-time.
Cheney spoke from his home in Jackson, where he's been spending time ripping the heads off puppies and drowning bunnies.

The men's room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport where Republican Sen. Larry Craig was arrested in a sex sting is losing it appeal as a tourist stop, an official said.Yeah, that worked well.
Craig was accused of soliciting hot hot hot gay sex in the bathroom in June 2007 and pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in August 2007.
One person had offered to buy the restroom stall for $5,000, a spokesman said, but airport officials "don't sell fixtures for novelty purposes."
The gay not-gay gay Craig — who has maintained his innocence and heterosexuality - said he only pleaded guilty to keep the embarrassing situation quiet.
His spokesman said in a press statement that Craig was "glad he could finally put the situation behind him."

In their efforts to win over notoriously fickle warlords and chieftains, the CIA has offered up some solid incentive to get them to thrust into the battle and offer some stiff resistance
The Afghan chieftain looked older than his 60-odd years, and his bearded face bore the creases of a man burdened with duties as tribal patriarch and husband to four younger women. His visitor, a CIA officer, saw an opportunity, and reached into his bag for a small gift.Talk about hard intelligence.
Four blue pills. Viagra.
"Take one of these. You'll love it," the officer said. Compliments of Uncle Sam.
The enticement worked. The officer, who described the encounter, returned four days later to an enthusiastic reception. The grinning chief offered up a bonanza of information about Taliban movements and supply routes -- followed by a request for more pills.

Reich wingnutosphere has preditable majos pissyfit over b. HUSSEIN
Osama Obama's plans to use the Koran Lincoln's Bible for the swearing in.
On January 20th, President-elect Barack Obama will take the oath of office using the same Bible upon which President Lincoln was sworn in at his first inauguration. The Bible is currently part of the collections of the Library of Congress. Though there is no constitutional requirement for the use of a Bible during the swearing-in, Presidents have traditionally used Bibles for the ceremony, choosing a volume with personal or historical significance. President-elect Obama will be the first President sworn in using the Lincoln Bible since its initial use in 1861.The real question is, which prominent Reichwingnut wackoff will TAKE CREDIT for pressuring Obama to not using a Koran?
Or maybe it's just that the Koran will be hidden INSIDE the Lincoln Bible.

Though most republitards thought he was almost as awesome as Sarah Failin could have been, six out of 10 independents and eight in 10 Democrats gave dick Cheney a rating of 'poor' or 'worst ever' in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll. Wtf?
"On the Sunday talk shows, Cheney took on the job of making an affirmative case for the Bush legacy," said Pete Holland, CNN polling director. "But the messenger got in the way of the message as soon as his snarling, blood-splattered phiz came on screen."

Obama should not pursue war crimes prosecution because it would be a partisan attack, says partisan attacker Mort "cornhole" Kondracke:
Blowjob. National unity my ass. And you can blow me, you hypocritical motherfucker. Accountability for war crimes is not "vengeance," you chickenshit little fuckweasel. Remember this? Rule of law! Rule of law! Shoe's on the other foot now, isn't it, you smarmy little shit. I sincerly hope all your neocon pals and their fucking retarded POS monkey-puppet are fucking called to the Hague, you cumdribbling bastard. Fuck you.

A moran actually named "Moran" writes in the ironically-named American Thinker that Der Chimpleton is an unsung fucking saint because he reportedly "sent personal letters to the families of the more than 4,000 troops who have died" in his two clusterfucks, one of them being his vanity/revenge war against "the guy who tried to kill [his] dad."
Right. And I'm up for a fucking Pulitzer because I write stuff. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to feed my unicorns.

Winning hearts and minds:
A White House spokesman said Monday it was up to Iraq to handle the journalist who threw his shoes at beloved nincompoop Preznit CrashTest Dummy, after his brother alleged he had been tortured in custody."See, its a democritude, an' if they decide to torture him, they're free to do so thanks to me," Bush was reported as saying, before returning to his coloring book.
What phenominal progress! Democracy's on the march! It's another defining moment in our successful endeavor. So why does Muntazer al-Zaidi hate America, our troops?

Oh, that's right: he's republican. Of course somebody gave him air time.
Actor and failed presidential candidate Fred Thompson will bring his special brand of dynamic charisma to talk radio in March. His show, "Snoozin' with Fred," will be replacing "Shut Up! Shut Up, I'm Talking! With Bill O'Reilly."
In his show, Thompson "will share his conservative views on politics, topical issues and pop culture stories" -- because God knows there aren't enough damn rebooblitoads on the air doing just that already, and hell, because we all care what Droney McSleepersons thinks. More than that, we... need... to... know. We wait with bated breath to hear what yet another bloviating repuke douchenozzle has to say about the new Dem administration. Ditto-snores, Fred! Fuck.

Gee. Go figure. After 8 years of doing NOTHING to hold the disastrous, lying Bush misadministration accountable for anything, tiny-dicked rethug congressman Darrell Issa is already gearing up to investigate the Obamastration. Which isn't even in office yet, the hypocritical shit.

Sorry for the light posting: we've waited until practically the last minute to do anything holiday-related and now we're rushing around like loons.

As the destruction of the middle class continues, let's just Destroy What the UAW Built:
The UAW not only built the American middle class but helped engender every movement at the center of American liberalism today -- which is one reason that conservatives have always held the union in particular disdain.How much would Bubba and Joe-Bob be making while working Hyndai, Toyota/ whothefuckingeversaki foreign automaker be making if it weren't for the anti-capitalism, anti free market UAfuckingW? About 10 bucks an hour, working as a temp. Without bennies. Of course, it wouldn't last......some guy named Hoolio down by the school yard would end up taking his job for 5 bucks an hour.
Over the past several weeks, it has become clear that the Republican right hates the UAW so much that it would prefer to plunge the nation into a depression rather than craft a bridge loan that doesn't single out the auto industry's unionized workers for punishment. (As manufacturing consultant Michael Wessel pointed out, no Republican demanded that Big Three executives have their pay permanently reduced to the relatively spartan levels of Japanese auto executives' pay.)
Let's get real. The executives helped cause the present meltdown. The UAW did not.
Fun fact: $28 an hour would just about be the right amount for one parent to make while the other stays home and raises the kids, like my parents were able to.
25 million a year for the CEO is ok?
Jebus Hussein Christ.
The last action of a dying empire is to loot the treasury.

A giant star on a Macy's store shines as heavy snow falls late at night Saturday, Dec. 20, 2008, in downtown Seattle, which rarely sees such major snow levels. Very few cars were on city streets at night, but there was heavy pedestrian traffic as people took in the sights and sounds of the winter storm. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)

Because such good things like almost getting hit by a shoe are things that happen in a free society. And the American/God given gift of liberty produces change that surrenderdefeatist b. HUSSEIN Obama could never deliver like THIS:
Iraqi police say attackers have decapitated the leader of the women's league of the Kurdish Communist Party.And then of course, there's the old inconvenient truth of just how grand freedom is:
A police officer says gunmen on Thursday stormed the Kirkuk home of Nahla Hussein al-Shaly and shot and beheaded her.
The Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at President George W. Bush during a news conference was beaten afterward and had bruises on his face and around his eyes, a judge said Friday.The war is over, we have won, tyranny has been defeated and Iraq is
Ain't spreadin freedom grand?

The year in media errors and corrections. Includes such beauts as "We have been asked to point out that Stuart Kennedy of Aberdeen, who appeared at Peterhead Sheriff Court on Monday, had 316 pink, frilly garters confiscated not 316 pink, frilly knickers," "Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Democratic vice presidential prick in 2000," and "[Bob] Novak has been a columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times for decades. He announced late last month he has a brain."
This one is so mindblowing I may actually co-opt it to use in the future:
