…About that alleged “Liberal Press”

In January 2008, Hamas TV came out with an ad that spoke poorly about George W Bush, saying he was the anti-christ.

The right wingers went insane and huffed: “How dare they?!” The right wing nutjobs over at Little Green Footballs said:

Hamas TV continues churning out sick, weird, genocidal propaganda; here’s their creative effort to welcome George W. Bush to the Middle East, featuring a comic book villain voice ranting in broken English for some reason. We’ve been hearing from the mainstream media about the poor children of Gaza who can’t afford batteries for their hearing aids, but nobody wonders where Hamas is getting the money to produce this kind of evil incitement—or asks why they aren’t buying children’s hearing aids instead.

And meanwhile, they crab about our alleged “liberal media”. So when CNN runs this…

…Things are just fine with them.

They’re all hypocrites. The media, the right wingers, the entire lot. Hypocrites.

On the Little Green Footballs site, there are some four hundred comments that have been left. Recalling that the original post was on January 14, 2008 – Comment #136 says:

MSM would love nothing better than an aging, cranky McCain go against a young, vibrant Obama. That is the stuff Landslides are made of.

Excellent instincts, really crappy prediction.

Update:

Media Matters is running a story about CNN who’s just announced their newest line-up of “Top Political Reporters”. These people will get tons of face-time on camera and the entire CNN staff will regard what these people say as being “gold”. Who are these new “Journalistic Prodigies”?

I’m glad you asked:

CNN has added five more top political reporters and commentators to its deep bench of political contributors and analysts.” CNN’s new “top political reporters and commentators” that “span” the “spectrum” include reported McCain adviser Alex Castellanos, former RNC official Tara Walls, Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody (A Pat Robertson patsy!)— who once described a male blogger as Fred Thompson’s “angry girlfriend” — and Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank.

Emphasis’ are all mine.

Sounds like they’re aiming right for the “center” and “unbiased” look! I’m guessing they’ll start with that breaking story in Ohio where Republicans are caught trying tor suppress voter registration and absentee voting under a brand-new law they themselves penned and ran through the courts in the first place!!

Secret Young Republicans training compound located!!

First photos are emerging from behind the enemy lines, where their nefarious indoctrination techniques corrupt the innocent minds of America’s youth and prepare them for a life committed to espousing Republican ideology that runs counter to their own self interests!

We all owe a debt of gratitude to the Democratic operatives that have risked their lives to bring us this first haunting photo:

Elephant Slide

Here we can obviously see a seemingly innocent piece of playground equipment that has been twisted by the right-wing propaganda masters into some sort of sick political metaphor…

Undercover operatives for the Democratic Party have told us that Republican parents force their unwilling children up the molded plastic stairs into the GOP’s “Indoctrination Machine.” These children remain inside for up to 48 hours until they are fully processed. The children, once they are completely transformed into a smelly mass of waste material, will eventually tumble down the chute behind the Indoctrination Machine fully prepared to carry-on the Neocon Agenda.

Said one Republican mother after her child was expelled from the Indoctrination Machine: “Oh, he’s still the little stinker he always was….” where she snickered and waddled away.FruitFly

UNICEF, Save the Children and Sally Struthers have begun nationwide media campaigns to save these poor little children before they’ve become indoctrinated into the little GOP shit’s that’s expected of each and every one of them. So please: If you can give anything, please give to Sally Struther’s Christian Children’s Fund. Because Jesus, and only Jesus could love these little Turds.

I found it on Bartcop Nation… So it must be true!

MOrning CoffeeLost and Found

In 1994, The Clinton Administration was subpoenaed by Congress for billing records from Hillary’s Rose Law Firm. The Clinton’s didn’t respond because they said they couldn’t find the records anywhere. Then in 1996, the records were found in a room next to the Oval Office. The newly controlled Republican Congress rolled their eyes in dramatic fashion and even Rush Limbaugh said: “oh puuuh-leeeeze”.

Fair enough! Record keeping that bad deserves a good kick in the teeth. This is the office of the President of the United States, not some half-wit hacks running the country.

But little attention is noted to the White House who, when subpoenaed by the newly controlled Democratic Congress demanding documents related to alleged illegal wiretapping. The White House told Congress that they couldn’t find the documents until yesterday

But where they stuffed underneath a few boxes? Behind the bureau? Nope! They were in Vice President Cheney’s office the entire time!! That’s the good news!

The bad news? Cheney’s office isn’t handing the documents over to Congress. Cheney has decided that claiming Executive Priveledge is a right bestowed up on the Office of the Vice President. (Even though he’s really not in the Executive Branch two months ago to the day.)

All together now: “OH PUHH-LEEEZE!!”

Liberal blogger kicks Fred Thompson in thegroin kick ‘Nads

The guy who leaked the story about Mark Foley (R-FL) has once again shown to the world that he has a spine. Congressional Democrats are stunned to learn that kicking a Royal Republican is not only possible, but quite fun!

Lane Hudson has filed an FCC Complaint against Fred “Lazy-Ass” Thompson for, well… being a lazy ass!

“[Thompson] has been presenting himself as a candidate for President, he has been raising large sums of money beyond what would be required to explore a possible candidacy.”

Hudson’s blog entry continues:

and he has signed a long term lease on a headquarters for his campaign. He has even spent advertising dollars, which are specifically prohibited by the law.

Thompson spokesperson has confirmed: Fred Thompson’s balls have been kicked pretty hard, but they’re still pretty red.

Metal BatDon’t take your metal bat love to town

President Bush’s original White House Press Secretary, Ari Fleischer is running a new political spin game. He’s campaigning to lift a city-wide ban on metal baseball bats in high school games. Fleischer’s “Don’t Take My Bat Away” campaign states that he thinks metal baseball bats are perfectly safe and keeping them out of the game is completely unfair. He thinks the city managers aren’t qualified to make such a decision and thinks it would be better to let “his experts decide” such matters.

Oh! I forgot the best part! The name of the town is “Pound Ridge”, New York.

Bugle BoyToot my own horn

August 1st, I was the first to break the story about Minneapolis’ I-35W bridge collapse and to point out Republican Tim Pawlenty was running this state “on the cheap“. Four hours after the bridge collapsed, I blogged the fact that the Democrats knew there was a problem with our roads and bridges and Tim Pawlenty vetoed the DFL bills to begin a plan to fix these transportation problems. I was pummeled by right-wing nut jobs demanding that I shut up, and that I was a complete A-Hole because of politicizing such a tragedy.

From The Nation magazine to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, I was the first one to speak up about this horror and accuse the Republican Governor of negligence and his arrogance for his DFL legislature. And I was told to shut up.Granny Smith

Yesterday, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune has published a story that stating that MinnDOT knew about the bridge’s weaknesses and they were told to ignore it.

Internal MnDOT documents reviewed by the Star Tribune reveal that last year bridge officials talked openly about the possibility of the bridge collapsing — and worried that it might have to be condemned.

But five weeks later, all those preparations stopped. In a single conference call on Jan. 17, the same consultants who said reinforcement plates were needed to strengthen the bridge cautioned MnDOT that drilling for the retrofit could weaken it.

“That was the turning point. That’s where we turned the ship 180 degrees,” said state bridge engineer Dan Dorgan.

Republican arrogance caused this bridge to fall. And it was Republican apathy towards our infrastructure that caused the senseless and horrible death of twelve 13 Minnesotans.

Today, Bush is in town for a fund raiser for Republican Senator Norm Coleman’s utterly failed re-election campaign. Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty asked the Republican President to up the ante of money the Feds could give Minnesota by making it a an official disaster site. Fourteen minutes ago from the time of writing: Bush declares federal emergency at Minn. bridge collapse.

The city and state became eligible for more federal assistance for the recovery from the interstate bridge collapse on Tuesday when President Bush declared an emergency exists in the state, the White House said.

This Governor’s administration team knew this bridge would collapse. Governor Pawlenty, his Lt Governor Carol Molnau, or quite possibly both of them knew it was only a matter of time. Bush’s appearance for a fund raiser, giving more money to Pawlenty for the collapse, and the overwhelming support from this Republican White House stinks to high Heaven.

The Star-Tribune’s craziest lunatic for a “journalist” is conservative Katherine Kersten (a.k.a. “Rita Skeeter”). Her Sunday’s column is entitled: Bridge collapse ought to unite us, not divide us.

They’ve been dividing us since the days of Reagan who demonized our government. They’ve insisted our government doesn’t work and isn’t worth saving. They’ve vetoed our plans, and then complained Democrats have no plan!

FruitFlyHow can we be united when they hate our country? Where’s the unison when anybody that disagrees with these Republicans are immediately shouted down?

They won’t let us use stem-cells to look for cures for our children. They have a higher regard forBlue Light mega health insurance companies than they do for our children. If our kids do survive and grow up to healthy young men and women; they’re lured and bribed to go fight for their global oil wars. How can they govern while our families are dead at the bottom of a river underneath hudreds of tons of crumpled steel?!? These Republicans govern like they have a coupon to a Blue Light special special, and you’re “the Special”.

ditch trashMark Cherry has new plans for Desperate Housewives

Openly gay Mark Cherry, creator and producer of the wildly popular television show “Desperate Housewives” has a revolutionary new idea for his show: Add a desperate gay househusband!

Marc Cherry, (right with Teri Hatcher), creator of Desperate Housewivesmark cherry terry hatcher revealed during the ABC Press Tour that Wisteria Lane will become home to its first gay couple in season 4. “We’re going to have the first male desperate housewives,” said Cherry. “They will move into the old Applewhite house and one of the gay men will just have a fractious, hateful relationship with Teri Hatcher. We just started writing the episodes so I probably won’t start casting for another few weeks.”

Will the lucky gay couple have their Massachusetts wedding license framed on the wall as the practice of most legally wed Gay/Lez couples?

Will all of the heterosexual couples’ marriage fall apart as guaranteed by the religiously insane? Oh wait…that’s already happened in seasons 1, 2 and 3, long before the Queers showed up!

It should be a blast to see. I can only hope the gay couple will be protrayed as professional gay people. Because if one of them is a “female impersonator” so some dumb crap like that, I ain’t watching it.

Fred (Fredrick of Hollywood) Thompson’s numbers are extremely low

The Republican Party, extremely disappointed with their current gaggle of Presidential hopeful contenders, have secretly habored a personal hope in Fred Thompson. Thompson however, continues to ride the fence on whether he really wants to run for the Presidency or not. And he seems to have taken a beating with his money laundering raising.

The amount Thompson raised for his committeeSimpsons to “test the waters” of a presidential bid lags the original $5 million goal backers set for June, the first month in which he set out to raise money.

Thompson did, however, collect more than several other Republicans did in their initial fundraising months as prospective candidates. Still, Thompson’s take doesn’t even compare to the stunning $6.5 million haul that Mitt Romney collected on a single day in January as he was exploring a bid.

Let’s recall that Mitt Romney, the GOP’s Golden Boy, has funding problems of his own and has been keeping his campaign floating with his own money.

Thompson apparently doesn’t seem to have enough of his own cash to chip into his campaign otherwise none of us would be seeing these kinds of headlines. Therefore, it’s safe to assume that he wasn’t paid that much when he served as a lobbyist for an abortion rights group. Thompson’s candidacy presents other problems as well: When he announces, all of the Law and Order episodes will have to be pulled off the air, including all of those that are currently in syndication. This move also has an effect on all of those fellow cast members including camera crews, make-up artists, casting directors and walk-on actors who will loose royalties for the more recent episodes.

Minnesota GOP Fund Raising Woes

Dunce…And while we’re talking about the financial woes of the GOP, it seems local statewide GOP teams have their own financial problems.

On another note, [ed.] said he got a call from GOP fundraisers for the special election and he refused to give any money because he did not trust the financial stewardship of the state party. And also because the caller was an asshole, he said.

Minnesota’s GOP has problems internally anyway. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (a.k.a. Bagdad Bachmann) has turned out to be even more bat-shit insane than the voters of MN Cong Dist 6 originally Bagdad Mall of Americarealized. Think Progress has a great piece on Congreswoman Bachman’s comparison to visiting Bagdad, Iraq to a trip to Mall of America in Minneapolis.

Eight-term Representative Mark Olson from Big Lake, MN has been dumped by the GOP Caucus after a jury cleared him of battery, but guilty for terrorizing his wife. While the trial was going on, it was revealed that this “GOP American Family Values” man would beat the shit out of his wife with a Holy Bible. In turn, she would defend herself by using her own HolyLesbian Patty Bible and beat him with it. Don’t believe me? Check out the audio of his confession…

The best part of this story is that Representative Mark Olson is extremely anti-gay marriage. You can check out a YouTube of him bitching in the Minnesota House yelling about his religious views about gays getting married.

Are you still interested in giving your money to these Minnesota GOP political-hacks?!?

US Senator Ted Stevens’ home raided: Underwear, lubes and Internets discovered

This needs no introduction because the story speaks for itselfAshamed Blog

The longest-serving Republican in U.S Senate history, who is known for delivering billions of federal dollars to his home state, Stevens in a statement said: “My attorneys were advised this morning that federal agents wished to search my home in Girdwood in connection with an ongoing investigation.

“I continue to believe this investigation should proceed to its conclusion without any appearance that I have attempted to influence the outcome,” it said.

Old FruitfliesHas anybody set up a webpage that keeps count of all of these GOP Senators and Congressman who’s lives are being invaded by FBI agents? Oh well – who cares about this one. Let him rot with the salmon spawn up river.

Have you heard about his son Ben Stevens? He’s an Alaskan state senator and he’s also under investigation for all kinds of mischief. It’s all of that “family values” that gets me warm and fuzzy on the inside, you know?!

Scary Mary (Poppins) re-cut trailerMe

Andrew Sullivan found the most horrifying film on the YouTube to date. It’s a remake of Mary Poppins, only four times the scare. I was so terrified, I was peeing in my trash lid full of rotten fruit and I screamed so hard, I scared the neighboring maggots back to pupa-stage.

More Rotten Fruit

Fleecing America for each and every vote available, the Dems have begun looking at the “Homo voter” and and makingRotten Fruit sure we know how gay friendly they are. <barf! puke! barf!> For example, Hillary Rodham Clinton (HRC <- did you get it? HRC?) has set up her own GLBT LGBT Steering Committe so to make sure all of us Queers know how PFLAG she can be. (Yup…even in Hillary’s world – “Lesbians” are listed before the “Sodomites”.)

She’s decided to pick and choose some “prominent” GLBT, err… LGBT high society members to be on the her… ehem… “Queering Committee”. Those that get picked of course, gush and pee their panties at the opportunity as if it will garner more respectability with all of us “lower homosexual life forms” <more barfing and puking>

“I’ve seen how Hillary Clinton’s experience, commitment, and leadership have made a difference for the LGBT community,” said New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn in a statement released by the Clinton campaign.

But “HRC” still isn’t willing to throw up her right-hand and vow to support the equality for Queers everywhere to enjoy the same tax-shelters, hospital access and legal represenation that our heterosexual neighbors and families call marriage.

Her campaign also said Wednesday that she would make sure that all Americans in committed relationships have equal economic benefits and rights, work to end discrimination in adoption laws and would sign the Employment Non-Discrimination Act if elected president.

Clinton has opposed amending the Constitution to ban same-sex marriage but not voiced support for legalizing gay marriage.

Recognizing the L-GBT voter, admitedly, is a giant step for Queers everywhere. Please don’t misunderstand me. The fact that Hillary would sink campaign funds into the Queer sub-culture is impressive. Much for impressive as when she and Bill were hanging out with gay friendlies like Harry and Linda Bloodworth Thomason, producers of Designing Women. It’s an astounding and bold move for her; HRC has gone from “hanging out with gay friendlies” to actually “hanging out with Gays Lesbians!!!”
The entire move is, in my opinion disengenuous until she and the rest of the Democratic leadership come clean and admit that sexual orientation is just as completely irrelevant as skin color or left-handedness. Quit trying to bullshit “The Gays” by pretending to being gay-friendly and come out of the political closet and yell it from the rooftops:

I AM HILLARY CLINTON…AND I SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE!!!

You see? Now that wasn’t so difficult, was it? You’d be suprised how many more queer people would get all excited about your “HRC campaign” girlfriend.

But HRC does better than her liberal counterparts. John Edwards throws drama into his views about gay marriage by stepping back when confronted with the question and pulls off something like this:

Edwards indicated that this issue was the “single hardest social issue” for him and that he had engaged in a lot of “personal struggles” over this issue. He believes that same-sex partners in committed relationships should have civil rights and should be afforded the dignity and respect to which they are entitled. He struggled with the question of “how we achieve this?. Whether it is through civil unions or partnerships.”

He indicated that he is certainly for all of the non-discrimination and equal benefits provisions.

However, he said that it was a “jump for me to get to gay marriage? I am not there yet.”
He said that this was a “great conflict for him” and that he continues to struggle with the question internally.

<blah blah blah… puke vomit..blah blah>

vomitWhy should expect anything more from the Southern candidate? Southern politics have pretty much controlled this country since 1994. And it is hasn’t been Southern politics, it’s been the Southern Baptists and the Southern Good Ol’ Boy Network. So it would be logical that the Southern politician in the 2008 Election to be the one who doesn’t want to piss off The Gays Lesbians. Instead he throws sand in the air and show how concerned he is about this inequality.

<more barfing and puking and turning into the dry heaves>

Edwards’ drama, at this point is nothing more than patronizing the GLBT communi… aww, shucks – the LGBT community. Edwards continues his thought by noting this:

He ended by alluding to the fact that his daughter (and most in her generation) support marriage equality. (The crowd applauded after this last statement).

…Well now, there you go. John Edwards doesn’t listen to his own children. When Edwards hears Whitney Houston singing “Greatest Love of All” he just plugs his ears and goes “BLAH BLAH BLAH! I CAN’T HEAR YOU!”.

How hard would it be for Edwards to simply throw open his own Closet and step out and say::

I AM JOHN EDWARDS…AND I SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE!!!

But recently, the Edwards campaign must have been tipped off by HRC’s Queering Committe idea, so he sent out the Big Gun from his camp…his wife Elizabeth. She shows up at the Alice B. Toklas Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Democratic Club and in front of a crowd of 300 where and said in the middle of 2008 Gay Pride in San Francisco:

“I don’t know why somebody else’s marriage has anything to do with me,” she said. “I’m completely comfortable with gay marriage.”

Ahhhhh… Now this is what we have to call:Fresh Fruit

FRESH FRUIT!!

The article also pointed out that Ms. Edwards comments became…

… the first major Democratic candidate or spouse to openly support gay marriage.

Yummy!!

Ms. Edwards also goes the extra mile to apologize for her husbands “country bumpkiness” by saying:

“John has been pretty clear about it, that he is very conflicted,” she said. “That’s up against his being raised in the 1950’s in a rural southern town. I think honestly he’s on a road with a lot of people in this country are on….They’re struggling with this. Most of the gay and lesbian people I know… have seen their friends and family walking down that same road.

“It’s frustrating, I know,” she added, “but it’s a long distance from where we are now to the pews of a Southern Baptist church. So, John’s been as honest as he can about that.”

Ohh crap….now we’re back to more ROTTEN FRUIT.

rotten fruitSo Presidential hopeful John Edwards has a hard time shedding his small rural Southern Baptist 1950’s feelings he has towards gays and lesbians? Has he managed to share his small rural Southern Baptist 1950’s feelings he’s had towards blacks? How about them Jews? Does he struggle with those small rural Southern Baptist 1950’s feelings towards Jewish people?! How has he changed his rural Southern Baptist 1950’s feelings towards a woman’s right to chose?! Has John Edwards’ rural Southern Baptist 1950’s feelings hampered him in any way when it comes to his feelings towards interacial (heterosexual) marriage?!

Can he possibly explain exactly why it’s always The Gays who are denied unequivable-and-across-the-board-same-rights as The Str8′ enjoy?

It’s all just more Rotten Fruit.

Oh. And Wonkette is spreading the rumor around that Republican Prsidential hopeful “Hollywood Fred Thompson” is gay. He’s as queer as a three-dollar bill and he apparently has a cock that looks like a beer can and loves the man-meat. Shame on that mean oldMe Wonkette for saying such horrible things against a Republican wanna-be candidate!!

I know this information is nothing but gossip and conjecture. But it’s better than that rotten shit the Democrats are throwing out there.
