Kerry Double Speak - Could it be the Botox?

@ 10:56 PM (106 months, 6 days ago)

John Kerry:  "This debate is not about an artificial date for withdrawal ... the United States Senate had a vote, a Republican resolution and a Democrat resolution and neither sought to seek an artificial date for withdrawal," Kerry said. "What it did, on the Democratic side, seek to do was set an estimated timetable for success, which will permit the withdrawal of our troops."

Hmmmm....which resolution passed?  Hasn't Kerry learned anything from the election?  Is the botox seeping into his already challenged brain?  Perhaps Kerry, the military stategist contacted someone like say Hannibal telepathicly during a nap.

Spin Free Reality Zone....Reality in Iraq

@ 12:21 AM (106 months, 8 days ago)

Some actual news, not negative fluff:

Iraq is unlikely to need coalition forces to maintain their current troop levels for very much longer because the functional capabilities of the Iraqi security forces are increasing, according to U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. In a series of television interviews, she points to examples of that increased capability, including holding territory recently cleared of insurgents and maintaining the security along the Baghdad airport road.

What do "A Progessive Too", "Seeking Judicial Sanity" and "Sheehan Rocks"  all have in common?  First of all they are all deep cover moles controlled by Ronnie Reagan of course.  Second all of their remarks were totally tongue in cheek and bogus.  Third....Shalana is gullible and so desperate to find a "fellow traveler" that she will fall for anything.

Accordingly, once again Shalana receives the coveted and in this case well deserved "Clown of the Day" award.

Yet Another Liberal Fraud Unmasked...this time Murtha in Consort with his Pal Pelosi

@ 04:17 AM (106 months, 13 days ago)

While the big story right now is about Rep. John Murtha's call for a pullout from Iraq within 6 months, it appears Murtha is going to have some big problems soon...

Republican lawmakers say that ties between Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) and his brother’s lobbying firm, KSA Consulting, may warrant investigation by the House ethics committee.

The calls come as Murtha, a former Marine and pro-military Democrat, has made headlines this week by coming out in support of a rapid withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

According to a June 13 article in The Los Angeles Times, the fiscal 2005 defense appropriations bill included more than $20 million in funding for at least 10 companies for whom KSA lobbied. Carmen Scialabba, a longtime Murtha aide, works at KSA as well.

KSA directly lobbied Murtha’s office on behalf of seven companies, and a Murtha aide told a defense contractor that it should retain KSA to represent it, according to the LA Times.

In early 2004, Murtha reportedly leaned on U.S. Navy officials to sign a contract to transfer the Hunters Point Shipyard to the city of San Francisco, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. A company called Lennar Inc. had right to the land, and Laurence Pelosi, nephew to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was an executive with the firm at that time.

Murtha also inserted earmarks in defense bills that steered millions of dollars in federal research funds toward companies owned by children of fellow Pennsylvania Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D).

House Republican Joe Wilson of South Carolina said, “If there is a potential pattern where Congressman Murtha has helped other Democrats secure appropriations that also benefited relatives of those Members, I believe this would be something that merits further review by the ethics committee.”

Another GOP lawmaker, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Murtha “is playing footsie with his brother’s lobbying firm using taxpayer money.”

This Member said Republicans have considered filing an ethics complaint against Murtha, although the preference among GOP insiders is for the ethics committee to look into this issue on its own authority, as it did in the previous Congress in initiating an investigation into former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas).

Even some Democrats privately acknowledged that a preliminary probe of Murtha by the ethics panel is possible next year, although the chances of a full-blown investigation are still unclear.

Of course, a Pelosi aide was quick to blame this whole thing on Republicans.

Jennifer Crider, a Pelosi aide, dismissed the allegation that the Minority Leader was involved in anything improper as “absolutely ludicrous, and an attempt to divert from the real issue that Mr. Murtha is attempting to engage in debate on a critically important topic — U.S. policy in Iraq. The real story here is the Republican strategy to try to discredit at Congressman Murtha” while he is pushing for a U.S. pullout from Iraq.

Republicans acknowledge that Murtha’s Iraq statement — coming from a Member with strong military credentials — is driving their renewed focus on the ethics questions surrounding the veteran Democratic lawmaker.

It certainly does put his past hawkish stance in perspective...

Larry Flynt: Hillary Turning Me Republican

Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt is so miffed at Hillary Clinton that he's thinking of becoming a Republican.

On August 25, the celebrated pornographer donated $1,000 to Mrs. Clinton, according to the third quarter filing by the former first lady's Senate campaign.

But less than a month later, Hillary returned the check.

"It's unbelievable," Flynt told Newsday. "But I'm used to this kind of hypocrisy."

"I've been a lifelong Democrat," the widely acclaimed smut peddlar said. "But I guess I'm going to have to find a third party or maybe some Republicans."

A Typical Democratic Losing Platform...remember Mary Carey?

@ 02:24 AM (106 months, 17 days ago)

The Mary Carey Platform:

The most important issue facing California right now is our $38 billion deficit and 6.7% unemployment rate. California needs a governor who will get our finances in order! As a "political outsider," I have fresh, original ideas for helping the state generate revenue and reduce its deficit. Here are just some of them:

1. Legalize gay marriage in California. This will generate a tremendous amount of revenue for the state as a honeymoon destination.

2. Tax breast implants. From Beverly Hills alone, we should bring in millions in tax revenue. (Note: I am all-natural and I personally discourage the use of implants!)

3. Make lap dances a tax deductible business expense. This will help grease the wheels of business in California and stimulate our economy.

4. If I’m elected Governor, I will wire the Governor’s Mansion with live web cams in every room. We will create a pay site, and all money collected will go toward reducing the deficit. Californians will get to see their government in action - literally! (Also, we will have people from around the globe helping to pay off our debt, so it doesn’t all fall on the shoulders of Californians.)

5. I will create a "Porn for Pistols" program to take handguns off the streets. Dealing with the violence and injuries associated with handguns is a huge drain on our state's resources.

6. As Governor, I will recruit fellow performers from the adult video industry as ambassadors of good will. These ambassadors will be a great help to California when it comes to such things as negotiating rates for buying electricity from neighboring states.

7. I will coordinate the state’s unemployment and jury systems, so that anyone who applies for unemployment will instantly be called for jury duty. This will save California state and local governments millions of dollars, because we won’t have to pay for jury duty. It will also relieve those with jobs from the stress of serving on lengthy juries.

8. I will fight the federal government's attempts to harass the adult video industry. Adult video is an $11 billion industry that creates more than $23 million in taxes each year for the state of California. We can't afford to lose this tax base!

9. If elected, I will support legislation to allow bars throughout the state of California to remain open until 4am. It will generate extra revenue, give additional hours of employment to the working class, and have a positive chain reaction throughout our economy.

10. I will address the HIV/AIDS epidemic that is costing our state millions of dollars and an incalculable toll in human lives.

Wouldn't it be great if anybody who speaks out against this country, to kick them out of the country? Anybody that threatens this country, kick 'em out. We'd get rid of Michael Moore, we'd get rid of half the Democratic Party if we would just import that law. That would be fabulous. The Supreme Court ought to look into this. Absolutely brilliant idea out there.

Democrats Know Nothing

Over the weekend, the Chairman of the Democratic Party was on "Meet the Press" where he was gently and politely asked, by the liberal host, about how it is that the Democrats have no positions at a critical and pivotal time in human history? The Chairman acknowledged that it was quite true about not having any positions yet, but he added that they were working on it and when they came up with something it would be based on honesty. When gently pressed about whether they would let us know their honest positions this year, the Chairman replied, "in 2006." The liberal host quietly, quickly, and politely moved on to the next question.

Terrorists and Their Ilk and Maybe Even Their Liberal Supporters Deserve Whatever They Get....The Geneva Convention Does NOT Apply....End of Story

@ 11:13 PM (106 months, 20 days ago)
"Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001? Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was "desecrated" when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet? Well, I don't.  I don't care at all.

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia.

I'll care when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi tells the world he is sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

I'll care when the cowardly so-called "insurgents" in Iraq come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

I'll care when the American media stops pretending that their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank that I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed "special" food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being "mishandled," you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts that I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled "Koran" and other times "Quran." Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and ---- you guessed it - - - I don't care ! ! ! ! !

George Bush Calls Out Democrats for the Backstabbing Flipfloppers They Are....And THATS the real deal

@ 01:18 AM (106 months, 25 days ago)

“When I made the decision to remove Saddam Hussein from power, Congress approved it with strong bipartisan support,” Bush said. “While it’s perfectly legitimate to criticize my decision or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began.”

Being the statesman that he is, W chose not to use the more apt "liar liar pants on fire" when describing the former Iraq supporters who are suddenly Monday morning quarterbacks in the worst sense.  If there was truth in advertising the Democratic Party would become the Expedient party.

Let's Start a Barbara Boxer Canned Goods Drive!

@ 10:35 PM (106 months, 27 days ago)

While grilling some corporate executives during a typical US Senate Hearing aka grandstanding session, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., cited multimillion-dollar bonuses — atop multimillion-dollar salaries and stock options — the executives are getting while “working people struggle” to pay for gasoline and face the specter of soaring home heating bills.

“People are concerned about fairness and justice at a time of sacrifice,” Boxer told the executives. “Your sacrifice appears to be nothing.”

Needless to say, Boxer failed to mention ANY sacrifice on her part.  One can only guess she may have reduced the tip she gives her beautician (not that THAT does wonders for the scarey looks....is it possible that when Boxer stands next to Hillary, Hillary's looks actually improve.  Hey...what about a Boxer/Reno beauty pageant with the proceeds funding the "sacrfices' Boxer refers too.  The only rules are:

Bill Clinton....Erstwhile TV Critic/Foreign Policy Guru wants U.S. Borders Open to Terrorists

@ 12:25 AM (106 months, 28 days ago)
Ex-president Bill Clinton is arguing that tighter immigration laws are hurting America, saying the new restrictions aren't worth it even if they stop the "one out of a zillion [foreigners] who might have a bomb."

"I'm very worried that one of the consequences of our tightness on immigration and visas as a result of 9/11 and terror, has led to a drop in many places of the number of foreign students coming to the United States to study and be graduate students," Clinton told an audience at the University of Minnesota on Saturday.

He said the U.S. needed foreign students because "we are nowhere near graduating enough scientists and engineers to maintain, given the size of our economy, a leadership role in the global economy."

Clinton said the terror trade-off wasn't worth it.

"When we got real tough on visas - because one out of a zillion of them might have a bomb - we lost a lot of brains. We might have dodged a bomb but we lost a lot of brains."

On another subject, the former president also praised actress Geena Davis, star of the new ABC Show "Commander in Chief."

"I did see one episode of 'Commander in Chief'," Clinton told the crowd. "Geena Davis is good for two reasons. She looked tough but not macho. She didn't look lion-tough. And she spoke Spanish. So I thought those two things were good."

The doctor advised him to come to his office immediately. After an examination, the doctor mixed a concoction of brown liquid, gave it to Jesse and told him to drink it all. Jesse did and replied, "That tasted like bull shit!"

The doctor replied, "It was, Jesse. You were a quart low."

A college teacher reminds her class of tomorrow's final exam.  "Now class,
