The ACLU, one of the most dangerous, if not the most dangerous non-governmental organization in the United States, is at it again, working to make sure that terrorists have their rights protected, while at the same time trying to get state funds so that some anti-American nutjobs can travel to terrorist states.
ACLU raps new law banning state-paid travel to terrorist nations
A civil rights group criticized a new law, signed Tuesday by Gov. Jeb Bush, that restricts colleges and universities from using state funds for travel to countries classified as terrorist states by the U.S. government.
Legislators passed the bill in May. The countries on the terrorist list are Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
"This will be another embarrassing mark on Florida's reputation," said Howard Simon, executive director of the Florida American Civil Liberties Union.
The law will stifle research in countries that Americans need to know about in order to improve security, Simon said. He said it also could get in the way of academic and humanitarian projects in other countries.
So, there it is.
We need to have pro-terror Americans travel to North Korea, the Sudan, and Syria because they may need to study "security techniques" or to work on "academic and humanitarian projects" in those countries.
There you have it. The government should pay for people to go to Syria to get an academic lesson on what it means to be an Islamic nutcase, or to go to North Korea to watch a country hell bent on destroying the world while at the same time starving its entire populace.
Only the ACLU and their leftwing psychobabble membership could find fault in this law.
Here is the contradiction in the world: when the United States grabs terrorists out to slaughter millions of people by any ways necessary, and holds them in more than humane conditions in Guantanamo Bay, every leftwing do-gooder group and/or "human rights organization," as well as Euro-peon nation, all fall over themselves to condemn America.
However, when Palestinians murder those who they merely "suspect" of helping Israel - no proof, merely a suspicion - the world goes silent and even manages to call Israel a brutal nation. And then they ask for a boycott against Israel. You ask of these liberal idiots, "isn't this brutality on the part of Palestinians?" and they either laugh it off or refuse to answer.
This is the world run by liberals: the sky is black, and the night is blue.
Al Aksa kills suspected collaborators
Masked Al Aksa Martyrs' Brigades gunmen on Tuesday publicly executed a Palestinian man and woman they suspected of having spied for Israel.
The man was shot dead in the main street of a refugee camp, with a large crowd looking on. The woman was later shot to death by her relatives in the courtyard of the West Bank's largest hospital.
But wait! The best part is yet to come - a clear and unblemished look at what Islam wants to do to the rest of the world where that sick cult does not rule the roost:
Abu Mustafa, a mother of four, was shot by gunmen and male relatives on grounds that she shamed her clan. More than 15 people took part in the execution, witnesses said. It took place in the courtyard of Raffidiyeh Hospital, the West Bank's largest.
The mob originally planned to kill her in the street but were swayed by a man who pleaded with them not to carry out the killing in the view of little children could. She was then taken into the courtyard of the hospital, said Yousef Mahmoud, 18, who witnessed the killing.
"One of the gunmen said 'where is her brother?' and when he stepped forward they said to him 'you know what you need to do,"' he said. "The brother took out a gun and shot her in the head with one bullet."
Mahmoud said the brother then emptied the entire clip into the body of his sister, while the surrounding gunmen fired into the air. He said that the woman remained silent throughout and did not resist her captors.
Now, show us anywhere, anywhere, in the world where normal people live and Islam is not in evidence or is in the minority, and find where a brother kills his own sister, a mother of four young children, with glee, emptying a gun into her.
Islam: a sick, sick cult of fucking lunatics. And to allow any other explanation is not possible.

If you listen to the sickening paranoia of the American Left (the foreign left is a whole other bunch of psychos), you can find a plot behind every major event. The Hindenburg? The right did it. Picasso died? The right did it. Bin Laden? Really, he is a friend of the CIA, and to George W. Bush. In short, the right is responsible for all of the world's ills.
Now imagine that the Left has come up with the granddaddy of psychoses: that President George H.W. Bush, better known as "Bush 41," was behind the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Psycho, right? But there's more - that George W. Bush, who wasn't even President in 1999, murdered JFK, Jr.
How Bush 41 did it (he and Oswald took turns firing the Mannlicher Carcano?), and how Bush 43 did it (he secretly went to the airport and tinkered with JFK Jr.'s plane, right?), is not stated...but, wait: they have evidence that they wish to present to a jury in Texas.
"A thorough, documented, criminal indictment of George Herbert Walker Bush,establishing beyond a reasonable doubt his guilt as a supervisor in the conspiracy to assassinate John F. Kennedy. If we could present this evidence to a jury in Texas, he would pay with his life."
Oh, man. It's thorough, it is documented, and it is crap. All in one massive lump of horse manure and cow flops.
The question here is: Where do these leftwing sickos come from? Who is raising such human refuse?
Nancy Pelosi (D-Nutjob) is one of the most frightening politicians who currently serves in a position of true power. Just watch her - every time she speaks, either she makes the most ridiculous, inane statements, or she says things with her eyes twitching, as if she is about to explode. She looks like a deer caught in the headlights, with our apologies to the deers of the world, who do not deserve to be lumped in with this, well, lump.
So, with that storied introduction, we present Ms. Pelosi in all her deluded glory, in an interview in which says not one thing that anyone not in a straitjacket can understand:
Nancy Pelosi Speaks
Our intention is to establish a record so that we can go forward with public policy that has the support of the public and they know why certain decisions are made. The public is...they’re beautiful - they’re optimistic, they’re positive, they’re concerned now about the direction of the country.
We have to show that to the public. [inaudible] …whoever prevails in the future. They know they can’t get away with it. They’ve done serious damage to the country, and we have a responsibility to have the record show that.
And also to take people to a different place. This is an old way of thinking -- the rich get rich and the poor get poorer. You know, it’s an old idea and it’s not a good one. They have to see that there is a concerted decision made to do these things, and so, let the chips fall where they may.
Democrats are just so wonderful. We have such a perfectionist drive and if our leaders don’t agree with us 100 percent … the Republicans don’t act that way.
So we have to do what we have to do. I’m not about whining, I’m about winning. Whatever it is we have to do -- we have to do it to get our message out there. It was important to us to spend time building unity in the party because that has its own appeal. We’re united around core principles.
We have to have a strategy and we have to have priorities. What we do has to have consensus but it has to be bold. I’m not here for any milquetoast politics. [inaudible] Go home and criticize us, but don’t slow us down. Don’t slow us down. This is no convoy, this is a bandwagon. It has to have consensus and it has to have clarity. In order to have to have that clarity, we can’t have every issue in the book. We can bring it around the frames of fairness, of responsibility, of community, of real security...
Let me just say this and you’ll understand. If I said, “a microphone is on the table is the message,” 10 Republicans around the table would say a microphone is on the table, a microphone is on the table, a microphone is on the table. Ten Democrats around the table would say a microphone is on the table, it’s next to a glass, there’s all these people sitting around, it’s in a room with a chandelier, there are windows in the room… Now why are you doing that? Just say what we’re going to say! Just say it! This is what we want them to know! But I think if I said it that way, they would understand it better, there’d be more context… They have this much time for us - you got to get in before the window closes. The microphone is on the table!
Well, there it is, in all its marvelous...incredible...well, shit.
Let's take a closer look at "the program" that Madame Loonytune says she and her silly party will run on in the midterm elections:
1. "The public is beautiful." How beautiful, is anyone's guess...but can you win an election based on kissing someone's great looking ass?
2. "They know they can’t get away with it." Who the "they" is, is not specified...wanna guess?
3. "They’ve done serious damage to the country." There's that unknown "they" again. Who could it be, we ask? Al Qaeda? Saddam Hussein? Bert and Ernie? The Fuller Brush Man?
4. The Downies want "to take people to a different place." Are they opening a travel agency? Orbitz, anyone?
5. "The rich get rich and the poor get poorer." Marxist boilerplate at its finest. Did Ms. Nutjob get a new edition of "Das Kapital" recently? Maybe she wants it autographed by the author, and can't find a way to contact him.
6. "Let the chips fall where they may." First a travel agency, now a casino. Maybe its a secret plan to hire all those illegal aliens the Downies want to keep invading the country!
7. "Democrats are just so wonderful." We agree...especially when they are making our enemies feel better about themselves.
8. "We have such a perfectionist drive." Well, the public is beautiful..so why can't Downies be "perfectionists"? Do me a favor, Nancy - when you get through kissing your own behind, wipe that shit off your face, okay?
9. "I’m not about whining, I’m about winning." Actually, Nancy dear, you are about whining. And it is making the rest of us who are not leftwing nutjobs throw up everything we ate in the last 2 years.
10. "We have to have a strategy and we have to have priorities." We think that that is the most important thing. However, there are no specifics...what IS the strategy and what ARE the priorities? Selling out this country to terrorists? Jacking up taxes on everyone who ever worked and is still alive? Oh, and jack up taxes on the estates of people who died? Making the economy be based on corn chips and sugar cane?
11. "What we do has to have consensus but it has to be bold." Aw, come on...be bold, Nancy. But keep away from those of us with brains when you do. Your disease could be contagious.
12. "Don’t slow us down. This is no convoy, this is a bandwagon." We are impressed: first a travel agency, then a casino, and now a chuckwagon. What an plan for increased employment! Maybe Nancy can operate her own calliope for laughs.
13. "Let me just say this and you’ll understand. If I said, “a microphone is on the table is the message,” 10 Republicans around the table would say a microphone is on the table, a microphone is on the table, a microphone is on the table." Because, Nancy, a fucking microphone IS on the table, you complete imbecile. What would Downies say - that there is a kangaroo on the table?
Well, there it is - 13 statements by Der Dumbkof sure to make even the most rabid American-hating liberal take pride in their party of incredible jerkoffs.
But if the regular thinking American people buy into this mound of unadulterated manure in November, then this country is finished.

The NY Times has become a joke of a paper, as their stock value slides down and down. Now, the stock has been downrated to its lowest level ever - lower than the rating for crapped-up toilet paper.
Moody's downgrades New York Times' debt rating
NEW YORK, May 25 (Reuters) - Moody's Investors Service on Thursday cut its debt rating on the New York Times Co., saying leverage has risen and will not likely fall much until the publisher completes its new headquarters in mid-2007.
Earlier share repurchases and the acquisition of About.com have also significantly increased leverage, Moody's said in a statement.
The company, which publishes The New York Times, International Herald Tribune and the Boston Globe, said last month, its first-quarter profit fell 69 percent from a year earlier when it took a large gain, as higher newsprint costs and weak results from the Boston Globe outweighed strong Internet revenue.
The Times' message? "Hey, our paper doesn't suck - our sales do!"

The BBC, one of the triad of journalistic evil (see our explanations for this elsewhere on this blog), is at it again.
If the US arrested a terrorist, can that arrest be questioned? If the UK arrested a terrorist, can that arrest be questioned? Yet, somehow - especially to Yassir Arafat apologist and BBC correspondent Caroline Hawley - it is a downright mystery why Israel would bother to arrest a Palestinian terrorist wanted for committing terrorism against Israel.
Israel captures Hamas commander
Israeli forces have captured the leader of Islamic group Hamas' military wing in the West Bank in a raid in Ramallah.
Israel accuses Ibrahim Hamad, 41, of masterminding a string of suicide bombings, including attacks on cafes and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
BBC correspondent Caroline Hawley in Jerusalem says it is not clear why the Israeli army has moved against Hamad now.
As Yul Brynner's character King Mongkut of Siam said in "The King and I," "is a puzzlement!"

Catherine Seipp, a blogger from California, pens an open letter to "The Piece of Shit Mom," Cindy Sheehan, who does not have time to put a stone on her son's grave but does have time to write leftwing fantasy books.
Seipp nails Marxist Cindy:
Dear Useful Idiot
My teenage daughter, who is a more sympathetic person than I am, thinks baldly calling Cindy Sheehan an idiot is a bit harsh, so I'll amend: Cindy Sheehan is a useful idiot, a rattle-headed tool of everyone from Not In Our Name, who even as the Twin Towers were still smoldering worried more about retaliation against the poor Taliban than about women oppressed by the Taliban; to pro-Palestinian terrorist apologists; to your friendly neighborhood Stalinists at various branches of International ANSWER, whose objectives range from freeing Mumia to putting a bright and happy spin on daily life in North Korea.
And yet the most idiotic statement in Sheehan’s new book, Dear President Bush, comes not from Sheehan herself but from Howard Zinn, who writes in the introduction: “A box-cutter can bring down a tower. A poem can build up a movement. A pamphlet can spark a revolution.”
A box-cutter can bring down a tower. By now, I suppose, we should be used to the hard Left’s extending underdog status to the worst of mass murderers; still, the sheer gall of beginning a series of David-and-Goliath metaphors with that one is breathtaking.
As they say, "Read the whole thing."

The BBC and their anti-war and anti-capitalist crew have joined with the likes of fellow leftist MASH writer Larry Gelbart in producing the wonderful drama entitled "Abrogate," which seeks to see what would happen if Hillary Clinton were President, right now.
If it were not hilarious, it would be pathetic.
Hillary Clinton is in the White House and a congressional hearing is sifting through the substantial and varied debris of the post-Bush regime to investigate what went right and, if anything did, how it could have possibly happened.
Yep, we need to know what "President Hillary" would do.
Suck the life out of Americans and their wallets. Give millions to the poor. Raise the taxes of everyone. Surrender to our enemies.
Speculate on that one, BBC assholes.

International psychopath and master thief George Galloway, who colluded with Saddan Hussein and stole millions in oil futures, is at it again: in an interview, he said that a suicide bomber could be "justified" in murdering UK PM Tony Blair because Blair sent troops to Iraq.
The question remains: why is George Galloway not in some prison somewhere? Why is he still holding a seat in Parliament?
Galloway says murder of Blair would be 'justified'
The Respect MP George Galloway has said it would be morally justified for a suicide bomber to murder Tony Blair.
In an interview with GQ magazine, the reporter asked him: "Would the assassination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber - if there were no other casualties - be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?"
Mr Galloway replied: "Yes, it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq - as Blair did."
The Labour MP Stephen Pound, a persistent critic of Mr Galloway during previous controversies, told The Sun that the Respect MP for Bethnal Green and Bow in east London was "disgraceful and truly twisted".
He said: "These comments take my breath away. Every time you think he can't sink any lower he goes and stuns you again. It's reprehensible to say it would be justified for a suicide bomber to assassinate anyone."
The Stop the War Coalition criticised Mr Galloway: "We don't agree with Tony Blair's actions, but neither do we agree with suicide bombers or assassinations."
It is stunning that even the whacko far left anti-war crowd sees Galloway as a loon.
Read the rest of the story - Galloway heaps praise on fellow Marxist dickwad Fidel Castro.
It is no wonder Little Georgie loved Saddam. Galloway sucks the dicks of leftwing dictators worldwide on a daily basis.

Imagine planning a rally for Hillary Clinton, who is all but considered to be the Downies' candidate for President in 2008 - you book only 200 people, a small crowd, to rally for her and raise some money.
Problem no. 1: Only 20 people show up.
Problem no. 2: You are rallying for Hillary Clinton.
'Hillary for president' rally draws 20 instead of hoped-for 200
A Hillary Clinton rally drew critics of President Bush, nonpartisan voters looking for a strong leader, and people who want to elect a female president.
About 20 people attended the Tuesday event, the national kickoff for Hillarynow.com, a grass-roots group pushing to draft the New York senator and former first lady to run for president in 2008.
"I've been fired up about her for a long time," said Mary Sneed, 64, of Pegram. "I think she can get things done. I admire what she's done in upstate New York. If she can win over New Yorkers, she can win over anybody."
Organizers hoped to have 200 people at the event in Nashville, a city selected to show that Democrats can win in Southern states.
They were disappointed but said they are not focused on numbers.
"We can build something from this," said E. Gayle O'Hanlon, president of Enchanted Gingerbread, who cooked for and helped organize the fundraiser.
If you have a rally and only 20 people show up, all you can do is "build on it." You certainly can't get much of a worse turnout next time. Or you could hold a rally for John Kerry. Now that is depressing.

Harry Reid, the Really in the Minority Leader of the Downtrodden Party in the US Senate, was once allegedly a moderate in his home state of Nevada - which, as a western state trending more and more Republican, will refuse to send liberals to Washington.
But Harry has moved further and further left since being sent to DC, and further left since winning his second term in 2004.
How do we know? Because a journalist in Reid's home state is saying so - and linking Minority Harry to Nancy Pelosi, the San Fran nutjob who could become Speaker if the Downies somehow win the House in November.
SHERMAN FREDERICK: When Harry met Nancy
In 50-plus months, Nevada voters will march to the polls and replace Sen. Harry Reid, thus ending one of the longer, more powerful political runs in state history.
When it happens, political wiseguys will remember that Sen. Reid's undoing came early in his last term when he became a big shot in the Democratic Party and quickly morphed into someone Nevada voters did not recognize -- his political girlfriend in the House, uber-liberal Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California.
Now, I know that some will take issue with this scenario. They will suggest that because the Review-Journal has been a periodic (some will say constant, but they would be wrong) critic of Nevada's senior senator over the years, I, as publisher of that "conservative rag," am therefore unable to clearly see the future.
In other words, my prediction of Harry's political demise is more hope than insight.
For those who want to see it that way, be my guest. But before putting your head back in the sand, let me first point out that the Review-Journal has endorsed Sen. Reid every time he has run for the U.S. Senate. And second, I find Harry, as an individual, magnetic -- by that I mean I am very attracted to one side of him and very repulsed by the other.
This man who knows politics in his state is warning Reid now. Our bet is that Dimwit Harry doesn't want to hear that message. But he will hear it in 2010 - when the voters of Nevada do to him what the voters of South Dakota did to Tom Daschle in 2004.

Little Johnny Downwards, the simpleton who thought that with less than one term in the US Senate under his belt (and with a record of doing absolutely nothing in that single term) that he should be elected President, has told ABC News that President Bush is "the worst President ever" - even worse than Richard Nixon.
Now we realize why Little Johnny didn't run for a second term in the US Senate: he is so dumb that he would've lost that seat. By retiring, he looked like a winner.
What a winner.
Edwards: Bush Worse than Nixon
May 21, 2006 — - Former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., says George W. Bush is the "worst president of our lifetime," and "absolutely" worse than Watergate-tainted President Richard M. Nixon.
In an exclusive appearance on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," the former presidential and vice presidential contender said of Bush, "He's done a variety of things -- things which are going to take us forever to recover from.
"You have to give Bush and Cheney and gang credit for being good at politics -- you know, good at political campaigns," Edwards added. "They're very good at dividing the country and taking advantage of it. What they're not good at is governing, and it shows every single day in this administration. And the country is paying a huge price for that."
That's right - George W. Bush not lying under oath, not assaulting women, not selling our technology to Communist China, as Johnny's hero Bill Clinton did - is "worse than Nixon."
Of course, Little Johnny's priorities, including ripping off companies and shaking them down for millions of dollars, have always been down in the mud.
Now, check out the photo of Little Johnny from ABC News:
And this man nearly became the Vice President of this country.
We wouldn't trust him to clean airport urinals.
The BBC, one of the "triad of journalistic evil," along with CNN and al-Jazeera, all of which utilize sickeningly leftist ideology, anti-American and anti-Semitic rants, and plain out-and-out lies to indoctrinate their audiences, has a problem: a light bulb blew out on the sign outside their London headquarters.
So what? you ask.
Well, when you take a Marxist organization endowed with billions of pounds of taxpayer funds, you get the following story: how the BBC is spending money hand over fist to get the bulb changed, something which should have taken, at worst, an hour.
Just how many people does it take to change a BBC light bulb?
The sorry saga of a broken light has illuminated the scale of "bureaucratic waste" at the BBC and cost licence fee payers thousands of pounds.
For more than a month the iconic sign at BBC Television Centre on Wood Lane, west London, has been out of action.
But what should have been a simple job, to repair a light illuminating the second "i", has descended into farce.
For where once it would have been a job for a couple of in-house technicians with a few hours to spare, the project has sunk into confusion involving outside contractors and spiralling costs.
So far two outside companies have been hired to fix the problem. One has been tasked with erecting a series of hydraulic platforms to reach the sign, 50 feet up in the air. The other is evaluating the damage.
It is estimated that it costs the corporation £1,100 each time this procedure is carried out. Only once a full assessment is made will the BBC's own staff decide what course of action to take before handing the repair work to one of the "outsourcing" contractors.
Imagine: approximately $2,000 US dollars each time a "study" on how to change the bulb is done.
If a taxpayer-funded organization in the US were doing this, the whistle would be blown.
However, if it was PBS doing the spending, the rest of the liberal media would probably be loathe to make their fellow leftists look bad.
So, the question remains: how many liberal morons does it take to change a lightbulb?
The world may never know.
The "fighting" and "killing" amongst Palestinians - the "attacks" that the MSM worldwide refuse to call a "civil war" - has now claimed a Jordanian, caught in the crossfire between psychotic terrorists from Fatah and ultra-psychotic terrorists from Hamas.
Gaza: Jordanian killed in crossfire
An employee of the Jordanian embassy in Gaza was killed Monday in gun battles between Palestinian police officers and members of Hamas’ newly-established security unit.
Jordan has demanded that the Authority investigate the embassy staffer’s death.
Palestinian sources said the Jordanian citizen, who worked as an embassy driver, was killed in exchanges of gunfire near the Palestinian parliament building in Gaza.
Earlier it was reported that fresh clashes erupted between Hamas and Fatah gunmen, leaving a Palestinian man dead and six injured. Eyewitnesses said members of a special security unit recently set up by the Hamas-led government in defiance of Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Fatah-faithful Palestinian Authority policemen exchanged fire Monday afternoon.
But, as the liberal media likes to say, this is NOT a civil war.
However, when the same thing happens in Iraq, it IS a civil war.
That's called "liberalspeak."

We here at Joobo have been covering the disgusting criminality - not alleged criminality, but the criminality - of Rep. William Jefferson, Downie of Louisiana, who sold his office and position wholesale to obtain bribes. Now we see that the US government has the thug on tape taking payoffs.
Nancy Pelosi (D-Nutjob), who usually has what to say when politicians are caught with their hands in the cookie jar, had no comment, because Jefferson has a "D" after his name, not an "R."
Filing: Tape Shows Lawmaker Taking Money
A congressman under investigation for bribery was caught on videotape accepting $100,000 in $100 bills from an FBI informant whose conversations with the lawmaker also were recorded, according to a court document released Sunday. Agents later found the cash hidden in his freezer.
At one audiotaped meeting, Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., chuckles about writing in code to keep secret what the government contends was his corrupt role in getting his children a cut of a communications company's deal for work in Africa.
As Jefferson and the informant passed notes about what percentage the lawmaker's family might receive, the congressman "began laughing and said, 'All these damn notes we're writing to each other as if we're talking, as if the FBI is watching,'" according to the affidavit.
Jefferson, who represents New Orleans, has not been charged and denies any wrongdoing.
As for the $100,000, the government says Jefferson got the money in a leather briefcase last July 30 at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Arlington. The plan was for the lawmaker to use the cash to bribe a high-ranking Nigerian official _ the name is blacked out in the court document _ to ensure the success of a business deal in that country, the affidavit said.
All but $10,000 was recovered on Aug. 3 when the FBI searched Jefferson's home in Washington. The money was stuffed in his freezer, wrapped in $10,000 packs and concealed in food containers and aluminum foil.
The questions now are twofold: how long before this scumbag is indicted and removed from office, and how long will it be before some blackjob leader - Jesse Jackass, Al Sharpton, etc. - march to DC and call this a racial prosecution?

Fidel Castro, the bloodsucking Marxist dictator loved around the world by sickening leftists as a man who has built not a dictatorship of hell for his people but a "socialist paradise," is not sick, says his doctor - in fact, Castro could live to be 140.
Of course, this is 20 years longer than any recorded human being, but for a deluded Marxist who has lied his entire life, what is so hard about adding 20 years to your lifespan?
Castro healthy enough to live till 140 years old: doctor
Cuban President Fidel Castro, who turns 80 this year, enjoys vibrant health and will live to 140, his chief doctor said.
Doctor Eugenio Selman-Housein, who heads Castro's medical team, denied that the longtime leader has Parkinson's disease, as the CIA reportedly believes.
"Every day they invent a new one," Selman-Housein said. "He will live 140 years."
Castro's health, once a taboo subject in the communist-led island, has become a topic of discussion since he fainted in public in 2001 and slipped and fell before television cameras in October 2004.
Castro, who quit smoking his trademark cigars in 1986, has led Cuba since 1959. He turns 80 on August 13.
Of course, it is not hard to believe that leftists in America and elsewhere pray daily for Fidelito's continued good health. If he lives 20 more years they are happy with that kind of longevity for a Marxist scumbag.
When a program on television is canceled, usually because its ratings suck, it is taken off the air, and its unaired episodes are just put into the can and never aired.
Not so for the leftwing drama/crap, "Commander-in-Chief," starring oddball Geena Davis as the first woman President. The show's ratings dived within the first few episodes, and the program was canceled by ABC.
But, alas alack! The liberal ABC cannot just let a show about a female President die, can it? Of course not!
ABC says that it will produce a 2 hour telefilm for the show!
Wait a second...a film? For a show which has been canceled?
You heard right - only for the left.
ABC May Revive Cancelled 'Chief' in Telefilm
NEW YORK -- "Commander in Chief" wasn't picked up for next season but ABC may give it a brief revival in the form of a two-hour movie.
The one-hour drama about the nation's first female president (Geena Davis) didn't catch on in the ratings, having been pulled off Tuesdays earlier in the season and failing to get traction Thursdays at 10 p.m. It was yanked off the schedule weeks ago and wasn't on the ABC 2006-07 primetime schedule announced early Tuesday.
But ABC Entertainment president Steve McPherson said at a meeting with reporters that "Commander in Chief" wasn't completely retired yet. McPherson said he had been pitched an idea for a two-hour movie by creator and former executive producer Rod Lurie, and was considering it.
Lurie would write and direct it. It isn't clear how many of the cast members would return.
"We're still debating it (whether to go ahead) and will decide over the summer," McPherson said.
We are waiting for NBC to comment on whether a 2 hour "Manimal" telefilm will be aired sometime in the near future.
Imagine for a moment having to deal with the silly left on a daily basis in your town - that is surely a hell that one must bear regularly these days.
Now, imagine that these leftwing psychos sue the local newspaper for not publishing leftwing psychosis which they believe is news.
Don't believe it? Check out this story from Colorado, where a leftwingnut is suing the local newspaper because - get this one - the paper is refusing to report on the fakery of the 9/11 attacks, and as such is part of the cover-up.
Oh, and the nut is suing for money to pay for their personal investigation into the attacks, which they say prove that there was a cover-up.
You can laugh, but you cannot make this stuff up. It is truly incredible.
Durango woman sues Herald for 9/11 cover up
A Durango woman issued a court summons to The Durango Herald, its publisher and its chairman on Thursday, demanding the newspaper compensate her for her attempt to uncover what she believes is a conspiracy to suppress the truth about the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Judith Pfeif, representing a group called Caring for Our Community, obtained a summons requiring the Herald to appear in La Plata County small-claims court on June 1.
Pfeif wants $7,500 compensation - the maximum allowed in small-claims court - for expenses incurred researching the attacks and publicizing her view of what happened.
Pfeif wrote in her petition, "The defendants are guilty of complicity in covering up the truth about the 9/11 tragedy, thus making every one of them accomplices in the greatest crime of this century."
Pfeif could not be reached for comment because she did not have a listed phone number.
Publisher Richard Ballantine responded to the summons Thursday, saying "I don't think the Herald is withholding anything that pertains to a conspiracy.
"The newsroom has the right to select the news and photos it thinks is of interest to its readers," Ballantine said, adding that he will represent the newspaper in the court hearing.
"The whole idea that we're being sued for not running a story is very unusual in the newspaper industry," he said.
You know, in a strange way maybe this leftwingloon has a point.
After all, maybe we can sue all of the American media for ignoring the story that the Downtrodden Party is run by imbeciles and is infested with pro-terror anti-Semites and American-haters.
The Europeans, left to their own devices, would be on the forefront of appeasing Hitler again, as they fumble to try to find a way of dealing with Iran. But their ways of going about it are pathetic if not hilarious, sad to say, when the subject - a nuclear-armed Iran - is so downright frightening.
The Iranians have decided that their best bet is to somehow continue to wave off the world, and that the US and/or Israel won't do anything to them.
Here is hoping that the Iranians choose wrong.
Iranian president ridicules European nuclear offer
TEHRAN (AFP) - Iran's hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ridiculed a European Union plan to offer trade and technology incentives in exchange for his country agreeing to halt sensitive nuclear work.
"They say they want to give us incentives. They think they can take away our gold and give us some nuts and chocolate in exchange," Ahmadinejad told a rally in the town of Arak.
In a confident speech carried live on state-run television, he also vowed the Islamic regime would not bow to demands it freeze uranium enrichment work -- at the centre of fears the country could acquire atomic weapons.
Aw, please! yell the Euro-peons.
Hey! If we cannot offer Iran a large amount of goodies, perhaps we can wave some airplanes at them!
America? Want to give Iran some airplanes they can use as weapons?
EU asks US to consider plane sales to Iran
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Europeans have asked the United States to consider selling new commercial planes to Iran as part of a proposed package of inducements and penalties aimed at resolving the nuclear crisis with Tehran, diplomats said on Friday.
The Europeans have also proposed a regional security dialogue that some hope could eventually draw Washington and Tehran, adversaries for more than 25 years, into direct talks.
In looking back, it is amazing that the nuts who ran Europe in 1938 did not offer Hitler 2 refrigerators and a moustache trimmer to placate him from invading Czechoslavakia.
Then again, maybe they tried, and it failed. Never put it past dumb liberals in Europe to try a failing idea twice.
The Islamic tactic of using violence to protest the smallest thing - first cartoons of Mohammed - is growing, as some Muslim asswipe decided to kill a judge because the judge ruled against someone wearing a headscarf in school.
My God! Slaughter them all for this apostasy! No headscarves?!? What next - no prayer rugs allowed on board airplanes?
Judge shot dead in Turkish court
ANKARA, Turkey (CNN) -- A gunman has killed a prominent judge and wounded four others in Turkey's highest administrative court in an attack he said was in retaliation for a recent ruling against a teacher who wore an Islamic-style headscarf, officials said.
One of the judges, Mustafa Yucel Ozbilgin, was shot in the head in Wednesday's attack and died later in hospital, officials said.
Four of the judges -- including Ozbilgin -- had voted in February against the promotion of a school teacher who wore an Islamic-style head scarf outside work. The fifth had voted in favor.
The judges' pictures were published by the pro-Islamic Vakit newspaper.
Turkey is on the frontlines of the war against having people worship Islam if they wish and those who wish to have Islam be forcibly recognized with all of its ridiculous cult-like motions.
How long before this kind of violence comes to America - on a daily basis - is anyone's idea. But it will be here sooner rather than later.

When you ask people what their rights are under the US Constitution, they come up with the usual doofus answers, showing their disdain, and equal lack of knowledge of that document which in effect runs our country. Ask someone if they can shut their phone off in a movie theater, you might get someone claim that "having a phone on is part of my rights," despite the fact that this is written no where in law, much less the Constitution.
Toward this end, we found this (read:stupid) story in the Constipated New York Times, which decided to ask people about their dogs and how having them makes them feel better about life. Nice - of course, Joobo loves animals, too.
But, check out one of the people in the story - she just found a new right in the Constitution:
Wagging the Dog, and a Finger
One 30-year-old woman, a resident of Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y., said she does not see a psychotherapist but suffers from anxiety and abandonment issues and learned about emotional-needs dogs from a television show. She ordered a dog vest over the Internet with the words "service dog in training" for one of the several dogs she lives with, even though none are trained as service animals. "Having my dogs with me makes me feel less hostile," said the woman, who refused to give her name.
"I can fine people or have them put in jail if they don't let me in a restaurant with my dogs, because they are violating my rights," she insisted.
Uh, sorry, lady - no such right to have your dog sit with you in a restaurant exists.
If the restaurant tells you no dogs, you have to follow that rule. And if they haul your ass off, be prepared to have a lawyer tell you that you do not have a leg to stand on.

Despite the fact that Hillary Clinton is as far left in the Downtrodden Party as Wuss Feingold and other simpleton leftists, the far far far left finds her incompatible with their sickening and twisted thinking.
Towards this end, Susan Sarandon, one of the most disgusting leftists in Hollywood - a town larded down with disgusting leftists - has thrown her "support" behind Hillary Clinton's far far far left opponent, Jonathan Tasini, who has more of a chance of being elected Pope than of beating Der Hillary in the Downie primary in New York state.
Actress Susan Sarandon Endorses Clinton Opponent In Senate Race
Actress Susan Sarandon, a longtime liberal political activist and outspoken opponent of the Iraq war, endorsed an anti-war Democrat challenging Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's re-election bid Tuesday.
Sarandon is backing Jonathan Tasini, a labor advocate and former president of the National Writers' Union, who has based his longshot campaign on Clinton's vote in 2002 authorizing military intervention in Iraq.
Clinton, who is widely considered the front-runner for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination if she chooses to run, has sharply criticized the Bush Administration's handling of the war. But she has also refused to call for American troops to be removed from Iraq.
Sarandon has been a harsh critic of Clinton's vote on the war, telling a British television interviewer last month that Clinton had "crumbled under the pressure of the moment." She also told ITV1 that she wasn't enthusiastic about a Clinton presidential candidacy.
Announcing Sarandon's endorsement, Tasini called the 59-year old Academy Award winner a "passionate advocate for human rights, justice and civil liberties" and said he was "honored" to have her support.
"She has never wavered when the call has come for people to stand on the front lines in support of progressive principles that affect the lives of so many people in our country," Tasini said.
It is amazing that the Left finds Hillary Clinton objectionable. She is farther to the left than 95% of this country. Yet somehow the delusional leftwing finds she is not leftwing enough.

The Saudi king, Abdullah, has told newspapers in Saudi Arabia that they need to stop showing the faces of women in their papers, because it could cause young men to do bad things.
Shoot - and here we thought that Islam caused them to do bad things.
Saudis Nix Pictures of Women in Newspapers
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - King Abdullah has told Saudi editors to stop publishing pictures of women as they could make young men go astray, newspapers reported Tuesday.
The king's directive, made in a meeting with local editors, caused surprise as the monarch has been regarded a quiet reformer since he took office in the ultra-conservative country last August.
In recent months, newspapers have published pictures of women — always wearing the traditional Muslim headscarf — to illustrate stories with increasing regularity. Usually the stories have had to do with women's issues. The papers have also started publishing a range of views on causes that are not generally accepted in Saudi Arabia — such as women having the right to drive and vote.
The king told editors on Monday night that publishing a woman's picture for the world to see was inappropriate.
"One must think, do they want their daughter, their sister, or their wife to appear in this way. Of course, no one would accept this," the newspaper Okaz quoted Abdullah as saying.
That's the morals of a cult like Islam. Pictures of women: bad. Muslims strapping explosives to their bodies and blowing up innocent men, women, and children: good.

"General" Wesley Clark, the former commander of NATO who nearly got the US into a nuclear war with Russia, ran for President in 2004 but was less successful than the rest of the dim bulbs running in the Downie primaries that year.
Clark is still shooting his mouth off, making ridiculous statements - now he says that we should "talk" to Iran to avoid a military clash.
Clark: Make words, not war in Iran
NASHUA – Former Democratic Presidential hopeful Wesley Clark says President Bush should be pushing for words, not war, with Iran.
Clark told a firefighters' convention yesterday that it looks like the President is lurching toward a conflict with Iran over the country's nuclear plans. He said he favors direct talks instead.
"Right now we're being led down a path to nowhere," Clark told the Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire, who had gathered for the final day of their biennial convention. The group also received visits earlier in the week from Sen. John Kerry and Sen. Joseph Biden.
Clark called for a special prosecutor who would be empowered to go beyond the Justice Department in following the ramifications of the lobbying scandals that have engulfed the capitol.
Clark emphasized the importance of improving U.S. foreign relations, including dialogue between the United States and Iran. "We need a dialogue with Iran. I'm told we had opportunities to have that dialogue," he said. "It's been rebuffed three times.
And what does the "lobbying scandals" have to do with Iran?
Wesley Clark wants to have it both ways - he wants to have "talks" with Iran, but if Iran gets a nuclear weapon it is a sure bet that Clark will blame President Bush for not doing anything.
In short, its the old leftwing playbook.

The NY Times has become the "Paper of Record" of some of the most poorly written, poorly researched, and poorly documented stories in the United States, if not the world, which is why their stock price and circulation continue to plummet.
In a story about the funeral of a soldier killed in Iraq, the Times made some of the egregious and hilarious mistakes ever seen in an alleged major "newspaper."
Check this out:
Corrections: For the Record
An article and a picture caption yesterday about the funeral of Sgt. Jose Gomez of Queens, who was killed on April 20 in Iraq, referred incorrectly to the Army representative who comforted his mother. She was a sergeant first class — an enlisted woman, not an officer. The article also misstated the name of a service medal that a general presented to Sergeant Gomez's mother. It is a Purple Heart, not a Purple Star. In some copies, a picture of the coffin being carried out of a funeral home carried an erroneous credit. The photographer was Ozier Muhammad of The New York Times.
Wait - the writer, Michelle O'Donnell, could not lift her lazy ass to find out what kind of military person was at the funeral?
And what is a "Purple Star"? Is this writer a numbskull? Is she 12 years old? A "Purple Star"? What the fuck is that?
And this fishwrapper of a newspaper could not even get the photo credit correct.
The New York Times: They have immature, lazy leftwing liberals writing mistake-laden articles for them.
The Times is not a newspaper. It should be renamed garbage.

Tubalard Ted Kennedy, the murdering thug of Chappaquiddick fame, was nearly killed Saturday when his plane was hit by lightning.
Mary Jo Kopechne, his 1969 victim who has not gotten any measure of justice, was unavailable for comment.
Sen. Ted Kennedy's Plane Struck By Lightning
BOSTON — A plane carrying U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy from western Massachusetts to his home on the coast was struck by lightning Saturday and had to be diverted to New Haven, Conn., his spokeswoman said.
The eight-seat Cessna Citation 550 plane lost all electrical power, including communications, and the pilot had to fly the plane manually, according to spokeswoman Melissa Wagoner. No one was hurt.
The Democrat had just delivered the commencement address at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams and was on his way to his Cape Cod home when the plane was struck around 4 p.m., she said.
The jet landed safely at New Haven at 4:11 p.m., said Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Murray. A report was filed with the agency, which will look into the incident, she said.
Imagine what would have happened had Tubalard Ted's plane crashed...the Left would have claimed that President Bush had the lardass killed off.
After all, the Left claimed this in the accidental air crash deaths of Mel Carnahan and Paul Wellstone.
But let us wait - after all, the Left might claim that President Bush ordered the lightning to strike Tubalard's plane. He can do that, you know.

The Downies in the US House want to take control in November - and with the MSM telling the American people each day that the Republicans are responsible for everything from bird flu to high gas prices to Barry Bonds not getting his 714th home run, it may happen. The MSM can just taste it, and they will report every lie and half-truth to make it happen.
But, alas, the MSM has a problem - the horse they are backing, the Downtrodden Party, has a reputation of shooting itself in the ass when the opportunity presents itself. In 1996, when Downies looked poised to take back the House, Bill Clinton's phunny munny scandal shocked the country, and although Clinton was re-elected the Downies didn't win the House. In 2000, 2002, and 2004 the Downies lost seats because they thought running on "George W. Bush is the devil incarnate" is some sort of platform to vote for.
So, with this in mind, the Downies are trying to get those 217 seats to make Nancy Pelosi (D-Nutjob) the Speaker. But when fellow nutjobs John Conyers and the rest of the bitter Left crowd tell the MSM that if they win control they will impeach President Bush and open investigations, the MSM can only say, "Vote for the Downies! After all, they mean well!"
The Downies are starting to see 2006 slip away - because Nancy Shmancy Pelosi is telling the MSM that "impeachment is off the table."
Democrats Won't Try To Impeach President
Seeking to choke off a Republican rallying cry, the House's top Democrat has told colleagues that the party will not seek to impeach President Bush even if it gains control of the House in November's elections, her office said last night.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) told her caucus members during their weekly closed meeting Wednesday "that impeachment is off the table; she is not interested in pursuing it," spokesman Brendan Daly said.
Daly said Pelosi never considered impeachment a priority. Republicans "are in such desperate shape," he said, "we don't want to give them anything to grab on to." He said Conyers agrees with Pelosi's thinking.
And now the MSM can tell everyone that nice Nancy and smiling Johnny Conyers are against impeachment, so they can continue their "Let's elect Pelosi as Speaker" campaign for 2006.
And if Pelosi is somehow elected Speaker, and she breaks her promise, which network will call her on it? Maybe Fox - but CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, and NBC won't bother, because by then these phony baloney liberals dressed as journalists will be on the "let's impeach George W. Bush" bandwagon.
Howard "Aaaarrggggh!" Dean, chairman of the dismal and disgusting Downtrodden National Committee, went on the Christian Broadcast Network in a vain attempt to woo Christians who will not vote for candidates of a party who stand for raping the American people through high taxation, who stand for illegal aliens to have amnesty, who stand for abortions to be paid for by the taxpayers of this country, and who use their every breath to fight any attempt to fight terrorism here in the US and around the world.
However, Howie has a problem - he told a huge fib. He said that the party's platform says that "marriage is between a man and a woman" - in short, that the party somehow is against gay marriage.
Unfortunately for Howie, either he is a liar or is stupid, because the party's platform actually stands FOR gay marriage.
And Howie got caught lying. And Howie looks again to be the imbecilic fool that he is.
Interview: Howard Dean: Democrats Have Much in Common with Evangelicals
He added, “The Democratic Party platform from 2004 says that marriage is between a man and a woman. That's what it says. I think where we may take exception with some religious leaders is that we believe in inclusion, that everybody deserves to live with dignity and respect, and that equal rights under the law are important.”
Notice what he said - that the party platform says this - not that he is unsure about what it says on the issue.
As one "gay" site states, Howie is a "bit foggy" on this issue.
No, folks - Howie knows what the party platform says. And when he says that it states the opposite, he is a liar.
Howard Dean Foggy on Gay Marriage
WASHINGTON, DC -- In a Christian Broadcasting Network interview aired on Wednesday, May 10, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said the following in response to a question about gay marriage:
"[On] gay marriage: the platform said marriage is between a man and a woman. That's what it says. I think where we may take exception with some religious leaders is we believe in inclusion. That everybody deserves to live with dignity and respect and equal rights under the law are important. I'm not saying we'll agree with everything between the more conservative evangelicals and Democrats but I think there's more common ground and we're willing to work with the evangelical community." [CBN, 5/10/06]
Dean today issued the following statement:
"I misstated the Democratic Party's platform, which does not say that marriage should be limited to a man and a woman, but says the Party is committed to full inclusion of gay and lesbian families in the life of our nation and leaves the issue to the states to decide. The Democratic Party remains committed to equal protection under the law for all Americans. How we achieve that goal continues to be the subject of a contentious debate, but our Party continues to oppose constitutional amendments that seek to short circuit the debate on how to achieve equality for all Americans."
In short, Howie went from telling one audience one thing, to telling another audience another.
That's called pandering, on top of his lying.
Howie is not having a good week.

You have to hand it to The NY Times. Here is a paper once esteemed in the nation and the world, now reduced to a pile of steaming cow flops because it is run by a pack of sickening anti-American and anti-Semitic leftists who, at the same time, hired a staff larded down with people who are also anti-American and anti-Semitic leftists. If it is against America, if it makes Israel look bad, if it praises Muslims or Palestinians, it shows up in The Times.
Once again, the veritable old rag of shit proves that change is not coming anytime to this corner of Far Far Left America anytime soon.
Now, they have reported a story that the video outtakes of Abu Musab Zarqawi, the cross-dressing simpleton Muslim who hacks off heads yet seems to be praised as a "simple man," make him not to look like the utter fool that he is, but - according to several "war veterans and intelligence experts" - makes him look good.
Only in The Times.
Not All See Video Mockery of Zarqawi as Good Strategy
An effort by the American military to discredit the terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi by showing video outtakes of him fumbling with a machine gun — suggesting that he lacks real fighting skill — was questioned yesterday by retired and active American military officers.
The video clips, released on Thursday to news organizations in Baghdad, show the terrorist leader confused about how to handle an M-249 squad automatic weapon, known as an S.A.W., which is part of the American inventory of infantry weapons.
The American military, which said it captured the videotapes in a recent raid, released selected outtakes in an effort to undermine Mr. Zarqawi's image as leader of the Council of Holy Warriors, formerly Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, and suggested that his fighting talents and experience were less than his propaganda portrays. But several veterans of wars in Iraq or Afghanistan, as well as active-duty officers, said in telephone interviews yesterday that the clips of Mr. Zarqawi's supposed martial incompetence were unconvincing.
The weapon in question is complicated to master, and American soldiers and marines undergo many days of training to achieve the most basic competence with it. Moreover, the weapon in Mr. Zarqawi's hands was an older variant, which makes its malfunctioning unsurprising. The veterans said Mr. Zarqawi, who had spent his years as a terrorist surrounded by simpler weapons of Soviet design, could hardly have been expected to know how to handle it.
"They are making a big deal out of nothing," said Mario Costagliola, who retired as an Army colonel last month after serving as the operations officer for the 42nd Infantry Division in Tikrit, Iraq.
An active-duty Special Forces colonel who served in Iraq also said that what the video showed actually had little relationship to Mr. Zarqawi's level of terrorist skill. "Looking at the video, I enjoy it; I like that he looks kind of goofy," said the Special Forces officer, who was granted anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly on military matters. "But as a military guy, I shrug my shoulders and say: 'Of course he doesn't know how to use it. It's our gun.' He doesn't look as stupid as they said he looks."
The release of the captured video reflected the dueling public relations efforts between the American-led forces fighting in Iraq and the terrorists and insurgents. It also reflected increasing interest by the military and civilian strategists in trying to ridicule Mr. Zarqawi.
"In Arab and Muslim societies, pride and shame are felt much more profoundly than they are in Western culture," said J. Michael Waller, a professor at the Institute of World Politics, a graduate school in Washington. "To find video like this that can cut him down to size and discredit him is a real way of fighting terrorism." A paper written by Professor Waller advocating the use of ridicule against the insurgents has been circulating at the Pentagon and among military commanders with experience in Iraq recently, according to several military officers.
But the retired and active officers said the public presentation of the tape did not address elements that were disturbing, rather than amusing: the weapon was probably captured from American soldiers, indicating a tactical victory for the insurgents. And Mr. Zarqawi looked clean and plump.
"I see a guy who is getting a lot of groceries and local support," said Nick Pratt, a Marine Corps veteran and professor of terrorism studies at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. "You cannot say he is a bad operator." He added, "People should be careful who they poke fun at."
Let's examine the statement "was questioned yesterday by retired and active American military officers."
Who did the story quote?
1. Mario Costagliola, an Iraq veteran.
2. "An active-duty Special Forces colonel who served in Iraq."
3. J. Michael Waller, a professor at the Institute of World Politics, a graduate school in Washington.
4. Nick Pratt, "a Marine Corps veteran."
The story reports that the video's release was questioned by "retired and active American military officers."
Well, we found 4 names mentioned. One was a "retired officer." One was mentioned, but not by name. One person mentioned was a professor - not a retired officer he. And a fourth is a "Marine Corps veteran" whose status of fighting in Iraq is not mentioned.
Now, if a story says that "retired and active American military officers" have something to say, do you mention one by name?
So, the story should read:
An effort by the American military to discredit the terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi by showing video outtakes of him fumbling with a machine gun — suggesting that he lacks real fighting skill — was questioned yesterday by a retired and American military officer, although the move was praised by at least one professor.
Of course, The Times wants you to believe the video's release was bad. The reporter's story proves that they think it is bad, and found one schmuck who served in Iraq to say it was.
The NY Times: a newspaper too awful even to wrap fish in, because the fish say the paper smells like shit.
In the 2004 election, the American Left was thoroughly discredited when "their" candidate, Howard Dean, was shown to be a screaming fucking lunatic - and he won no primaries despite the fact that the Left pumped millions of dollars from their welfare checks into his campaign.
Now, what Howard Dean did with those millions, is anyone's guess.
But is our guess is that Ducky Dean went nowhere, and the Left had to "swallow" (bad word for Downies - we know) the leftwing, but not leftwing enough, John Kerry, who flipped and flopped his way to an electoral defeat.
One of the Far Far Left's favorite bloggers is one Markos Moulitsas, better known as "Daily Kos," whose site is a mixture of far Left fantasy, paranoia, and handwringing about the uselessness of the Left's minority status.
Well, The Washington Post felt the need to give this nut some space in their paper - and he paints a bad picture for another Far Leftist whose is not far left enough for the Nutsy Crowd: Hillary Clinton.
Read this...it is too funny for words.
Hillary Clinton: Too Much of a Clinton Democrat?
Hillary Clinton has a few problems if she wants to secure the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. She is a leader who fails to lead. She does not appear "electable." But most of all, Hillary has a Bill Clinton problem. (And no, it's not about that.)
Hillary Clinton leads her Democratic rivals in the polls and in fundraising. Unfortunately, however, the New York senator is part of a failed Democratic Party establishment -- led by her husband -- that enabled the George W. Bush presidency and the Republican majorities, and all the havoc they have wreaked at home and abroad.
Dean lost, but the point was made. No longer would D.C. insiders impose their candidates on us without our input; those of us in the netroots could demand a say in our political fortunes. Today, however, Hillary Clinton seems unable to recognize this new reality. She seems ill-equipped to tap into the Net-energized wing of her party (or perhaps is simply uninterested in doing so) and incapable of appealing to this newly mobilized swath of voters. She may be the establishment's choice, but real power in the party has shifted.
Our crashing of Washington's gates wasn't about ideology, it was about pragmatism. Democrats haven't won more than 50 percent of the vote in a presidential election since 1976. Heck, we haven't won more than 50.1 percent since 1964. And complicit in that failure was the only Democrat to occupy the White House since 1980: Bill Clinton.
Understand the logic? As far as the Far, Far Left is concerned, the fact that Howard Dean ran means they won; if Hillary runs and wins, they lose.
Day is night, night is day. Just another moment from the textbooks of Far Left America and their delusions.

Anderson Cooper, whose silly "AC360" show on CNN is more painful than watching Keith Dimbulberman (and that takes some doing), is getting worse ratings than the man he replaced, Aaron Brown, who was replaced because his ratings were in the basement.
May 4, 2006 -- IF Anderson Cooper isn't just a little embarrassed, he should be. Sure, he made the cover of Vanity Fair - but inside is a creepy photo of the CNN dandy in a mama's-boy pose with real-life mother Gloria Vanderbilt that has media types snickering. Worse, Cooper was sucker-punched with his April ratings that had his prime-time show down about 36 percent with younger viewers he's supposed to attract. Aaron Brown, whom Cooper ousted, was actually doing better this time last year.
Wait - Anderson "Cooper" is really Anderson Vanderbilt?
Then again, the "Anderson Vanderbilt Show" doesn't sound good on a leftwing network like CNN which hates wealthy people.

A dictator is defined as "a ruler with total power over a country; an autocratic person."
Well, Boss Hugo Chavez of Venezuela has decided that being an elected dictator is not enough.
Now he wants the people to elect him to office forever.
Chavez Says He May Seek 'Indefinite' Re-election
CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuela President Hugo Chavez said he could seek "indefinite" re-election through a referendum if the opposition boycotts upcoming presidential elections.
Chavez made the remark late Friday, saying if the opposition pulls out of the Dec. 3 vote or makes false claims of electoral fraud to the Organization of American States, "I would call a national referendum to have the people decide if I can continue here indefinitely or if I have to go after six years in 2014."
Venezuela's constitution allows a president to be re-elected only once in immediate succession. That limit would give Chavez six more years in office if he is re-elected.
Chavez, giving a speech in the central state of Lara, said he would ask the nation "if I can or cannot continue presenting my name" in subsequent elections.
Polls indicate Chavez is likely to win the elections, and international observers have signed off on recent votes as fair.
Jimmah Farter, er, Carter, has been one of the "international observers" (read: dunces) who have called Boss Hugo's elections "fair."
And Jimmah criticizes the United States while making nice with a dictator. Figures.

Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), son of "Tubalard" Ted Kennedy, better known as "Chappaquiddick Ted," has been a bad boy again - and apparently has been driving drunk and got into an accident.
And the Capitol Hill police covered it up - because they were ordered to.
Patrick Kennedy cited for 3 traffic violations in wreck
WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Patrick Kennedy was cited for three traffic violations after his early morning car crash near the Capitol, according to a police report.
The report by a U.S. Capitol Police officer said Kennedy, D-R.I., drove his green 1997 Ford Mustang convertible into a security barrier near the Capitol shortly before 3 a.m. Thursday, and that Kennedy had red, watery eyes, slurred speech and unsteady balance.
Kennedy said in a statement he had taken a sleeping pill and another drug that can cause drowsiness, but had not been drinking alcohol before the accident.
Kennedy, 38, told the police officer he was "headed to the Capitol to make a vote," the report said. He was charged with failure to keep in the proper lane, traveling at "unreasonable speed" and failing to "give full time and attention" to operating his vehicle.
Kennedy spokeswoman Robin Costello acknowledged that the police report was filed, but said "we have no knowledge of any citations." Kennedy aides received the accident report Friday morning at his congressional office, said Costello, who is Kennedy's spokeswoman in Rhode Island.
Yep - it was those pills.
Unfortunately for Teddy's little drunkard, er, son, it appears he was boozing it up in the hours before the crash:
Pat cites pills in car wreck
WASHINGTON -U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy insisted yesterday that he had consumed “no alcohol” before he slammed his Mustang convertible into a concrete barrier near his office, but a hostess at a popular Capitol Hill watering hole told the Herald she saw him drinking in the hours before the crash.
“He was drinking a little bit,” said the woman, who works at the Hawk & Dove and would not give her name.
Patrick, Patrick, Patrick...
However, this appears to be Rep. Kennedy's second wreck in two weeks (in PDF form):
Operator Information Sheet
As someone likes to say, "Oopsy!"
This is also not the first time that Mr. kennedy has had a brush with law enforcement - in 2000, he slugged an airport guard at Los Angeles International Airport.
L.A. airport officials release videotaped incident involving Rep. Patrick Kennedy
LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Officials from Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday released a video of a March 26 altercation between Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-Rhode Island) and airport security guard Della Patton.
In the video, Patton is seen telling Kennedy that one of his carry-on bags is too big to fit through the X-ray machine. He then grabs one of his smaller bags and attempts to rush through the metal detector, but she blocks his path.
As he tries to pass, he grabs her shoulder and appears to give her a quick shove, shaking the arch of the metal detector.
They argue for a few moments before he picks up his bags, turns around and leaves.
The video was released a day after city officials decided against bringing charges against Kennedy over the encounter. The congressman, son of Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Massachusetts), attended a hearing last week to answer allegations he committed battery against the guard.
So, let us sum up: in 5 short years, Mr. Kennedy has accosted a guard at an airport, and has been in at least 2 accidents where alcohol was probably involved.
Now, if this were a Republican, that person would be asked to resign. Nancy Pelosi (D-Nutjob) would call this part of "the culture of corruption" and demand something be done about it, and now.
But, because Kennedy is a Downie, and is Ted Kennedy's son no less, nothing will be done.
This site has covered the corruption of Rep. William Jefferson, Downie of Louisiana. He is a crook, despite the lack of coverage from major media outlets.
Now, one of Jefferson's cronies has pled guilty to bribing the congressman.
Nancy Pelosi (D-Nutjob) had no comment.
Kentucky man pleads guilty to bribing lawmaker
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Kentucky businessman pleaded guilty on Wednesday to bribing Louisiana Democratic Rep. William Jefferson in an African Internet venture, the Justice Department said.
Louisville technology executive Vernon Jackson has pleaded guilty to bribery and conspiracy to commit bribery, and will help investigators as they examine Jefferson's dealings with Jackson's company, iGate Inc., the Justice Department said.
Jackson, 53, faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000.
The plea deal could prove embarrassing for Democrats who have made corruption scandals involving Republicans a central theme of their campaign to take back control of Congress this November.
A former Jefferson aide pleaded guilty in January to bribery charges for his role in the deal, and seven Jefferson staffers told the House of Representatives in March that they had been served with subpoenas.
In a statement, Jefferson denied any wrongdoing.
"I have never over all the years of my public service accepted payment from anyone for the performance of any act or duty for which I have been elected," Jefferson said.
How soon Jefferson is indicted is anyone's guess. But it should be soon - so this baloney "culture of corruption" charge against the GOP can be thrown right back into Nancy Pelosi's and Howard Dean's faces.
Roe v. Wade, that monstrosity of a Supreme Court decision on par with Plessy v. Ferguson and Dred Scott, is becoming more and more unpopular with the American people, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Support for Roe v. Wade
Hits New Low, Poll Shows
U.S. support for Roe v. Wade is at its lowest level in decades, according to a new Harris poll.
For 33 years Harris Interactive has been measuring attitudes toward the landmark Supreme Court decision that made abortions legal during the first three months of pregnancy.
The latest telephone survey of 1,016 adults indicates Roe v. Wade is supported by a slim 49% to 47% plurality, compared with 52% who favored the decision in 2005 and 57% in 1998.
The poll says that while most people do not think that Roe will be overturned soon, the make-up of the US Supreme Court give one hope that that day is coming.

Liberals love to tax the shit out of everyone - from ordinary people to businesses, they just cannot help themselves to money that does not belong to them, earned from hard work. Give liberals power, and they tax everyone to death.
This includes the oil industry. When they make $7 billion and pay $6 billion in taxes, the liberals scream for a "windfall profits tax" because earning $1 billion in after tax profit, to liberals, is insane and proof of some crime.
We wait, however, for the cries from the Left to increase the windfall profits taxes on media corporations - especially when Time Warner announced today that their profits are up 60% over last year.
Wait - what is that? Time Warner is a friend of Downies? They own the Downies' personal "news" network, CNN?
My God! We can't tax them - that would be, well...heresy! And a violation of free speech, to boot!
Time Warner profits climb 60 percent in first quarter
NEW YORK -- Media conglomerate Time Warner Inc. reported today that its first-quarter profit climbed nearly 60 percent, driven by growth in its cable TV division and gains from the sale of its book group and other assets.
The New York-based company, whose holdings include Warner Bros., the Time Inc. magazine publisher, CNN and HBO, earned $1.46 billion, or 32 cents a share, in the first three months of the year, up from $915 million, or 19 cents per share, in the same period a year ago.
Revenues rose 1 percent to $10.46 billion from $10.36 billion a year ago.
Excluding unusual gains and other one-time effects in both periods as well as the results from its book group, which it has agreed to sell to the French media and defense conglomerate Lagardere SCA, earnings rose 32 percent to $1.2 billion from $908 million in the same period a year ago.
$10 billion in one quarter? Obviously, Time Warner is gouging its customers.
Something needs to be done here, and quick. We say, tax the fuckers. That'll teach them.
The Downtrodden Party likes to pride itself on making nice with homosexuals - they say the right things, and scream loudest in support of the gay lobby, but when it comes to actually fighting for them, the Downies cringe because the homosexual agenda is pretty much hated by 70% of the American people. So when issues like gay marriage and gays in the military come up, Downies pound their fists and make nice speeches but move quickly out of the way when the people have their say against these initiatives.
Now, Howard "Ducky" Dean, chairman of the Downtrodden National Committee, has fired the party's "outreach" (bad word - we know) director on gay matters, in what appears to be a slam at the man for having his male lover criticize Der Ducky.
Homosexuals who believe in their heart of hearts that that party stands up for them are coming to realize the whole thing is a sham.
Dean fires Dems' gay outreach chief
Democratic Party Chair Howard Dean on May 2 fired the party's gay outreach advisor Donald Hitchcock less than a week after Hitchcock's domestic partner, Paul Yandura, a longtime party activist, accused Dean of failing to take stronger action to defend gays.
Dean immediately hired gay former Democratic Party operative Brian Bond to replace Hitchcock, according to DNC spokesperson Karen Finney, who called Bond a "proven leader."
Bond served from 1996 to 2003 as executive director of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, a bipartisan national group that raises money and provides training to help elect openly gay candidates to public office.
"It was not retaliation," Finney said of Hitchcock's dismissal. "It was decided we needed a change. We decided to hire a proven leader."
Hitchcock declined comment Tuesday night except to confirm that Dean informed him May 2 through a surrogate that he had been terminated. He said he was considering consulting an attorney to decide whether to contest the firing.
"This is retaliation, plain and simple," said Yandura. "This shows what they think about domestic partners."
Yandura said Tuesday night that Dean was using Hitchcock as a "scapegoat" for problems of Dean's own making.
"All I did was ask questions about what the party and Dean are doing about its GLBT constituency, Yandura said. "I have yet to see any answers."
Ducky Dean has been an unmitigated disaster for the Downtrodden Party. The fundraising amounts have dropped off the map, he cannot get good candidates to run, and now this.
And people wonder why that party should not be in power. With this as a chairman, would you want them in power?
The Left in the US believes, truly, that George W. Bush and an evil cabal of CIA officers were behind 9/11 - and that they "set up" 19 Muslims to "take the fall" while the US government murdered 3,000 Americans to somehow start wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Are you following this loony logic? Because it fits right in with the left's latest delusion: that Zacharias Moussaoui is "innocent." Not that he shouldn't be put to death...he is innocent.
That's the Left: psycho as usual.
"moussouai is innocent!">
it should be obvious that moussouai was nothing more than a stand alone dupe who knew nothing.
he was not connected with the 9/11 plot in any way, shape or form and knew absolutely nothing.
consider that he was arrested BEFORE the 9/11 event, yet the plot went ahead anyway!
if you were going to rob a bank with several accomplices and one of the accomplices is arrested before-hand, you are going to cancel the heist. you don't know if the arrestee is going to sing like a canary and if the police will be waiting.
yet here we have a plot of mind-boggling complexity (remember, the hijackers had to learn to fly before hand) that went ahead DESPITE the capture of one of its members.
do any of you really believe that al-qaeda, or anyone else for that matter, would have employed a clearly deranged person like moussouai to be part of the 9/11 plot?
or did al-qaida know it was completely protected by elements within the american government establishment?
several years ago the cia stated that it would not have been able to pull off 9/11. despite its nearly limitless resources. yet an organization that was under the gun and monitored throughout the world was.
think about that.
Yep, we thought all about it - and this sicko needs help, and fast.
And the responses? Similarly psychotic:
"I think it's probly much more likely that the hijackers had inside help from PNAC than any other part of this diary being all that relevant."
There's the modern American left for you. All in its crazed glory.

Some time ago, we focused a story on how the administration of Canadian scumbag Prime Minister Paul Martin was doing its utmost to harm and hinder America in fighting the war on terror, or to stop missiles from North Korea from hitting us.
Well, Paul Martin has been retired from office and has gone back to selling used coffins, but his replacement, conservative Stephen Harper, has done a 180, and is helping the United States.
Tories quietly expand NORAD
OTTAWA—Stephen Harper's government has quietly committed Canada to "indefinite" participation in NORAD and agreed to give the military alliance new responsibilities to watch for a terror attack by sea.
Fresh off his softwood lumber truce, Harper's government yesterday gave another boost to Canada-U.S. relations when it signed off on the renewal of the landmark North American Aerospace Defence Command treaty.
Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor and David Wilkins, the U.S. ambassador in Canada, signed the new pact at a "ceremony in Ottawa," according to Janelle Hironimus, a spokesperson with the U.S. State Department.
Yet in Ottawa, officials with the Harper government tried to keep word of the renewal under wraps.
There was no notification of any signing ceremony.
Officials at both the foreign affairs department and defence department initially refused to confirm that a deal had been signed.
But after persistent questioning, defence officials finally acknowledged that the two nations had brokered a new defence agreement.
"The text of a renewed NORAD agreement was signed in Ottawa on April 28 by the Minister of National Defence and the U.S. ambassador, which signals the end of the negotiating process," O'Connor spokesperson Étienne Allard said yesterday afternoon.
Harper is keeping this mum because the liberal shit in that country will crucify him for cooperating with their mortal enemy, George W. Bush.
However, cheers to Harper. He is a refreshing change of pace.

When someone is murdered in Iraq, every US media outlet announces the story with, "Iraq is coming closer to civil war with each new murder." That civil war has not broken out after 3 years of such murders, some in the hundreds at one time, escapes the dunces who run the MSM in America.
However, when those peaceful Palestinians* elect a government run by terrorists for terrorists, and murders and chaos reign, the fact that a civil war might erupt is never even mentioned in the circles of the liberal media.
So, leave it to The Jerusalem Post to mention the unmentionable.
PA on verge of bankruptcy, civil war
Asked to sum up the achievements of his cabinet one month after entering office, embattled Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said he was confident the Hamas cabinet would successfully complete its four-year term in office.
"We're always optimistic," he said. "Our optimism stems from our belief and determination that we must continue the process until the liberation of our lands."
Haniyeh's optimism, however, does not seem to be shared by a growing number of Palestinians, who believe they are now closer than ever to civil war and bankruptcy.
Boycotted by the international community, Haniyeh's cabinet is still struggling to raise funds to pay salaries to more than 140,000 PA civil servants. They have not been paid for March and many of them say they can't even afford to travel to work.
Hamas has thus far failed to raise enough funds in the Arab and Islamic world. True, its leaders have been promised tens of millions of dollars by Iran, Libya and a few Arab countries, but the money has still not been transferred to Ramallah and the Gaza Strip. A drive by Hamas to collect donations from Arabs and Muslims has also failed because of the failure of Arab banks to cooperate.
Even if the promised money does arrive, Hamas officials note, it would hardly cover the amount required to pay March's salaries.
In addition to the financial crisis, the Hamas cabinet is also facing a political and diplomatic boycott by most of the world. Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar, who has just wrapped up a tour of a number of Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Libya, is about to return home with a suitcase full of promises and little cash.
The challenges facing the cabinet from home appear to be worse. Some cabinet ministers living in the West Bank are forced to use public transportation to get to work in Ramallah. Unlike their Fatah predecessors, the Hamas ministers are not equipped with Israeli-issued VIP passes enabling them to drive through IDF checkpoints without delay.
One minister was forced last week to walk through wadis and hills to avoid IDF checkpoints. His journey from Nablus to Ramallah lasted more than seven hours.
In the month that it has been in power, the cabinet has not been able to meet in its entirety around one table. More than half of the ministers live in the West Bank, while the rest, including Haniyeh, live in the Gaza Strip. Many Palestinians are jokingly referring to the Hamas cabinet as the "video-conference government," as that is how it conducts its weekly meetings.
Hamas officials are openly accusing PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and his senior aides of conspiring with the US and Israel to bring down the Hamas cabinet. The allegations have resulted in increased tensions between Hamas and Abbas's Fatah, with both sides spreading rumors about the other.
While Fatah leaders have accused Hamas of hypocrisy and incompetence, Hamas spokesmen say they are the victims of a US-led conspiracy to oust their democratically elected government. Leaflets distributed by Hamas-affiliated groups in the Gaza Strip have specifically implicated Fatah operatives Muhammad Dahlan, and Samir Mashharawi.
The crisis has been aggravated by Abbas's decision to cut the powers of the Hamas cabinet, making it almost impossible for each minister to hire a private secretary or deputy.
Some of the Hamas ministers have also complained that their predecessors literally stole everything from the ministries, including teaspoons, fax machines and couches.
Terrorists, crooks, thieves, mass murderers. Are the Palestinians blessed, or what?
Tim Robbins, fruitcake du jour, who needs to be locked up and not being allowed to make movies, is joining the "Let's impeach Bush" bandwagon, so popular amongst the screwy left these days.
Check out Der Imbecile's reasoning: Bush is committing "high crimes."
And these nuts wonder why they sound stupid. Could it be because they are?
Hollywood star Robbins blasts US media ignorance of 'high crimes' in Iraq
Acclaimed American actor/director Tim Robbins blasted the US government's policy on terrorism -- and the US media's failure to examine it critically -- at a news conference in Athens promoting his stage version of George Orwell's "1984."
"We have right now a media that is willfully ignoring the high crimes and misdemeanours of the president of the United States," the star of Hollywood hits including "Mystic River" and "The Player" told reporters.
"Clinton lied about a blowjob, and got impeached by the media and Congress," Robbins said.
"(Bush) got us into (the Iraq) war based on lies that he knew were lies. ... His war has recruited more Al-Qaeda members than Osama bin Laden could ever have dreamed for ... yet no one in the media is calling for impeachment," he said.
Robbins pointed out similarities between current US policies on terrorism and the authoritarian society described by Orwell.
"Unfortunately, the book and the play is more relevant now than it ever has been," he said. "(It) talks about continuous warfare as a means to control the Western economy, and as a way to control rebel elements within society through the use of fear, constant fear."
The usual liberalhorseshit: Bush is Hitler, Bush is Orwell, Bush lied, Clinton lied only about a blowjob (under oath, no less), blah blah blah.
This is why the MSM in America is dying: because they allow wholesale idiocy such as that shown by Robbins, and Richard Dreyfuss, and Oliver Stone, and Bill Maher, to be pushed into the faces of the American people who find that kind of shit patently offensive.
