From the website "Death by 1000 Paper Cuts," comes this magnificent collection of some of Hillary Clinton's finest comments, mocking the world in that snide way that the Clintons dismiss any criticism of either of them by making the person doing the criticizing as a nut, right-winger, or loser.
Check these out - they are priceless.
Hillary for Dummies: 10 Hillary Clinton Quotes on the Issues

What should we call this? A collection of sayings from a woman deluded by paranoia and years of bullying everyone around her into doing what she wants, and of committing crimes or skirting close to the legal edge and then questioning those who investigate her activities.
Her campaign motto should be "vote for me - or else."

In another blow to the rapidly devolving campaign of Hillary Clinton, it appears that a former general and openly gay member of her campaign posed as a Republican to ask a question at last night's Republican debate.
More bullshit from the Delusional American Left.
Hillary plants question in Republican debate
It turns out that Keith Kerr, retired Colonel., U.S. Army; retired Brigadier General, California National Reserve, who submitted a YouTube question about gays in the military, is actually a member of Hillary Clinton's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transexual Americans For Hillary Steering Committee. He's also part of a film production crew trying overturn the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
Update: In the final seconds of the post-debate coverage, Anderson Cooper acknowledges that CNN messed this up and states that CNN did not know that Kerr has a position within the Clinton campaign and that had they known, they would have disclosed the association.
Imagine the reaction of the Downercrats if someone working for a Republican campaign snuck into one of their debates to pose a question for them: there would be howls, cries of conspiracy and "right wing agendas."
After stories about the Clinton campaign planting questions for their own candidate, this is par for the course. And it is one more piece of evidence that Hillary Clinton is unfit to be President of the United States.

A British teacher in the Sudan had her class name a teddy bear, and they chose "Mohammed." The Sudanese government arrested her, and now she is facing six months in prison and 40 lashes for...get this..."insulting Islam."
This would be a comedy routine if it were not so serious.
Teddy Teacher Charged In Sudan
A British teacher has been charged with insulting religion and inciting hatred after allowing her class to name a teddy bear Mohammed.
Gillian Gibbons faces 40 lashes - and the British Government has shown its anger by summoning the Sudanese ambassador in London as a "matter of urgency".
Prime Minister Gordon Brown's spokesman said: "We are surprised and disappointed by this development."
Ms Gibbons has been charged under Article 125 of the criminal code, the Foreign Office confirmed.
The case will go before a court in Sudan tomorrow and the 54-year-old from Liverpool is expected to appear.
If convicted, Ms Gibbons faces 40 lashes, six months in prison, or a fine.
Sky's Foreign Affairs Editor Tim Marshall said: "We must ask why she has been charged.
"They know that this is not a particularly serious affair, so why have they chosen to do this?
"The Justice Minister of Sudan has taken a personal interest in this affair and he has told the general prosecutor to take a personal interest in it."
This is the new crap that Muslims worldwide want for the rest of us: if you do anything to "insult" Islam, you deserve punishment. Touch a Koran? PUNISHMENT! Say that radical Islam is a danger? PUNISHMENT! Draw cartoons of Mohammed? PUNISHMENT! RIOTS! DEATH!
So, if "insulting Islam" is a crime, we must be criminals.
FUCK ISLAM. There. We insulted it.

When the history of the (Bill) Clinton administration is written, let us hope that the historian(s) doing the writing include a lengthy section on the man's history of lying through his teeth. He just does not know how to tell the truth, as if he were hooked up to a monitor that hits him with an electric shock if he didn't utter a lie.
Now as he campaigns to try to foist his wife into the White House, he is doing it again. Now he says that he was against the war in Iraq from the start.
Unfortunately for Clinton, the media was prepared to show his previous remarks, all of which show his support for the war until recently.
Bill Clinton Flatly Asserts He Opposed War at Start
During a campaign swing for his wife, former President Bill Clinton said flatly yesterday that he opposed the war in Iraq “from the beginning” — a statement that is more absolute than his comments before the invasion in March 2003.
Before the invasion, Mr. Clinton did not precisely declare that he opposed the war. A week before military action began, however, he did say that he preferred to give weapons inspections more time and that an invasion was not necessary to topple Saddam Hussein.
At the same time, he also spoke supportively about the 2002 Senate resolution that authorized military action against Iraq.
Advisers to Mr. Clinton said yesterday that he did oppose the war, but that it would have been inappropriate at the time for him, a former president, to oppose — in a direct, full-throated manner — the sitting president’s military decision.
This story, from The New York Times, certainly is charitable to Clinton, claiming he did oppose the war even though he never said so.
In short, The Times thinks that "opposition" means "thinking about it" and claiming it years later.
Bill Clinton: American Liar Extraordinaire.

The Telegraph of London sent reporters across the US to gauge the feelings of (allegedly) ordinary voters on the US presidential election.
Their verdict? Americans hate Hillary Clinton.
Not dislike, not antagonism. Hatred.
America hates Hillary Clinton and Co
Such support might register in the opinion polls, but could melt away should the former First Lady lose in Iowa. And the frequently expressed nightmare for Democrats is that she will win their party's nomination but lose to a Republican next November when most Americans decide they don't much like her.
"I'm always amazed how we can screw things up," said Steve Ayers, a coffee-shop owner in Hannibal. "Maybe the way we screw it up this time is by nominating Hillary - across the Midwest that would be the only way of unifying Republicans."
Views about President George Bush ranged from vitriolic hostility to mild disappointment. But many seemed to view him as irrelevant in terms of the 2008 election, not least because no Republican candidate is trying to assume his mantle.
Although Mr Clinton is no longer the villain he was for many in the late 1990s, there was precious little evidence of nostalgia for the Clinton years - another alarm bell for the Hillary campaign.
Support for the Iraq war was thin in most places - though far from non-existent - but backing for American troops was strong and, on balance, most people thought Islamic extremism needed to be confronted. When national security dominates an election campaign, the advantage traditionally lies with Republicans.
From this article, we see that the Downies' plan to run against George W. Bush, on Hillary Clinton's "strength and experience," and on the "let's remember those good old days of Bill Clinton" platform are going to flop like a wet noodle.
Happy days may be here again!

Here is the example of what liberalism does to the human mind: it warps it until it does things beyond normality.
This woman got an abortion, and then was sterilized, to save the planet.
Got that? This one woman's selfless deed will save mankind, end climate change, and make us all live until 200 years old.
Yeah! That's the ticket!
Meet the women who won't have babies - because they're not eco friendly
Had Toni Vernelli gone ahead with her pregnancy ten years ago, she would know at first hand what it is like to cradle her own baby, to have a pair of innocent eyes gazing up at her with unconditional love, to feel a little hand slipping into hers - and a voice calling her Mummy.
But the very thought makes her shudder with horror.
Because when Toni terminated her pregnancy, she did so in the firm belief she was helping to save the planet.
Read the rest of the article - it shows the dementia caused by liberalism.
However, perhaps it is a good thing that this woman will not have any children. Who wants her kids and later generations screwing up the world?

When President Bush's job approval ratings were at 30%, all you would hear from the MSM is how "historically low" they are - despite the fact that Harry Truman left office with even lower numbers.
Bush is still at 32%. But Congress, led by Dimwits Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, is at 20%.
The media does not want to have to report on that.
Congress’ Approval Rating at 20%; Bush’s Approval at 32%
Gallup's latest poll finds only one in five Americans approving of the job Congress is doing at this time. The public's rating of Congress had shown slight improvements in recent months, but the current rating is down again and is among the lowest that Gallup has ever measured dating back to 1974. Americans' assessment of the job President George W. Bush is doing is also quite negative and has shown little change over the past two months, with about one in three Americans expressing approval of him.
According to the Nov. 11-14, 2007, poll, 20% of Americans approve of the way Congress is handling its job, while 69% disapprove. Congressional job approval ratings tied their historical low point -- an 18% reading in 1992 -- in August of this year. Americans' ratings of Congress showed some improvement in the following months, reaching 29% in mid-October before falling back again this month.
By historical standards, the current 20% approval rating is among the lowest Gallup has ever recorded. In fact, in the 173 times since 1974 that Gallup has asked Americans to rate the job Congress is doing, Congress' approval rating has been at or below 20% only four times.
So when the MSM tells you that the Downercrats are doing a great job in Congress, let us see how well they do in next year's election.

If an American company or business wants their employees to speak English, the EEOC has deemed this to be discriminatory and against the law. So, Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee introduced legislation allowing businesses to hire English-only employees.
Downies, and their willing accomplices in the Amnesty for Illegals movement, object, and have forced Nancy Pelosi and her Gang of Morons in the House to fight Alexander's amendment.
Downercrats: Working against the interests of the American people.
Mi Casa, Sue Casa; Nancy Pelosi tries to force the Salvation Army to hire people who can't speak English.
It's been less than a week since New York's Sen. Hillary Clinton and Gov. Eliot Spitzer had to climb down from their support of driver's licenses for illegal aliens. Now House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has moved to kill an amendment that would protect employers from federal lawsuits for requiring their workers to speak English. Among the employers targeted by such lawsuits: the Salvation Army.
Sen. Lamar Alexander, a moderate Republican from Tennessee, is dumbstruck that legislation he views as simple common sense would be blocked. He noted that the full Senate passed his amendment to shield the Salvation Army by 75-19 last month, and the House followed suit with a 218-186 vote just this month. "I cannot imagine that the framers of the 1964 Civil Rights Act intended to say that it's discrimination for a shoe shop owner to say to his or her employee, 'I want you to be able to speak America's common language on the job,' " he told the Senate last Thursday.
But that's exactly what the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is trying to do. In March the EEOC sued the Salvation Army because its thrift store in Framingham, Mass., required its employees to speak English on the job. The requirement was clearly posted and employees were given a year to learn the language. The EEOC claimed the store had fired two Hispanic employees for continuing to speak Spanish on the job. It said that the firings violated the law because the English-only policy was not "relevant" to job performance or safety.
"If it is not relevant, it is discriminatory, it is gratuitous, it is a subterfuge to discriminate against people based on national origin," says Rep. Charles Gonzalez of Texas, one of several Hispanic Democrats in the House who threatened to block Ms. Pelosi's attempts to curtail the Alternative Minimum Tax unless she killed the Alexander amendment.
The confrontation on the night of Nov. 8 was ugly. Members of the Hispanic Caucus initially voted against the rule allowing debate on a tax bill that included the AMT "patch," which for a year would protect some 23 million Americans from being kicked into a higher income tax bracket.
Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, a moderate from Maryland, was beside himself. Congressional Quarterly reports that he jabbed his finger on the House floor at Joe Baca, the California Democrat who chairs the Hispanic Caucus, and yelled, "How dare you destroy this party? This will be the worst loss in 10 years."
This is not a "do-nothing" Congress. This is a "Let's Harm America" Congress.
"Lions for Lambs," the huge lump of crap starring Robert Redford, Tom Cruise, and Meryl Streep that is another anti-war vehicle, is dying at the box office.
Good news, good news.
DAILY BOX OFFICE
8. LIONS FOR LAMBS (United Artists)
-40.1% / $345
So, a movie starring three Academy Award winnings is getting $345 a showing, a total of $11 million?
Wow, that is bad. Real bad. But completely deserving for these liberal fucks.

After Wolfie Blitzer's performance at the Downie debate, covering Hillary Clinton's rearend, it comes as no surprise that CNN is out to save her from criticism.
Case in point: after her support for driver's licenses for illegal aliens which she said made sense but now should not be done, CNN did a story on their "political ticker" page on her support for the licenses - on November 4.
Two weeks later, where is the story? Missing...gone...removed.
Clinton Broadly Supports States' Efforts to License Illegals
Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.
Who removes such a story - unless it makes their candidate look bad?
CNN - the Clinton Campaign Network, in full cover-Clinton's-ass mode.

As the UN reports that the world will just end if every country does not destroy its economy and submit to the Climate Nazi agenda, we find another story, this one from the end of October, showing that everything in the future will be blamed on this fraud.
Are you hungry? It's climate change! Can't get a job? It's climate change! Are you missing your family? It's climate change! How about having diabetes? It's climate change!
Yeah - that's the ticket!
Climate change to lift death toll in Australia
MORE Australians will die from heart attacks, strokes and respiratory diseases as the planet heats up, a study has found.
Instances of obesity, food poisoning, and mosquito-borne diseases such as the deadly Ross River fever are also likely to rise as climate change raises average and extreme temperatures.
The Healthy Planet, Places and People report released yesterday, says mental health in rural areas is also likely to suffer from more frequent and more intense droughts.
Commissioned by Research Australia, the report predicts deaths from heart attacks, strokes and respiratory diseases, triggered by an increase in heatwaves, could triple by 2050.
The Left and the Climate Nazis are now in full fraud bullshit mode. They need to press every fear button to get the rest of us to go along with their Chicken Little program.

The Downies ran in 2006 on the platform of "elect us, and we will end the war! We will raise taxes! We will do tons of shit!" And so they got elected.
And, in one way, they have kept their promise: they have done shit.
And now the American people are disgusted with them. Or, as the Gallup people like to say, "disappointed."
That means "we think they suck" in liberalspeak.
Americans Widely Disappointed With Democrats in Congress
Amidst a swirl of public dissatisfaction about the Iraq war, the economy, government corruption, and with President Bush more generally, Americans went to the polls in November 2006 and voted enough Republicans out of office to give the Democrats majority control of Congress. A year later, Americans are as negative about the job Congress is doing as they were leading up to the 2006 midterm elections. And according to recent Gallup polling, Americans are distinctly negative about the Democrats’ handling of several front-burner policy issues.
The latest Gallup Panel survey, conducted Oct. 25-28, 2007, asked Americans to say whether they are “pleased,” “neutral,” “disappointed,” or “angry” about the way the Democrats in Congress have been dealing with seven major issues confronting the nation.
Overall, relatively few Americans are pleased with the Democrats’ performance on any of them. This ranges from 7% for the federal budget deficit to 17% for terrorism. Between 12% and 26% say they are angry about the issues. However, most Americans fall in between, with the plurality generally saying they are disappointed with congressional Democrats’ performance on each.
Ouch. But check the rest of the poll out:
But on four other issues, the public offers more clearly negative assessments. Six in 10 Americans are disappointed or angry with the Democrats’ performance on healthcare and the federal budget deficit. About two-thirds have a negative reaction to their handling of immigration and Iraq.
Iraq is the most negatively evaluated of all -- perhaps reflecting not only the degree to which Iraq is seen as the nation’s top problem today, but also the thinking that a new Democratic-controlled Congress would have been more effective in changing course in Iraq.
Can we all say "former Speaker Nancy Pelosi" for 2009?

Last week, she thought it made sense to give illegal aliens driver's licenses. Then she looked at the polls, and saw that kind of shit won't sell.
Now, she is against them.
Perhaps the Downies should just nominate John Kerry again.
Clinton Says No to Licenses for Illegals
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday came out against granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, after weeks of pressure in the presidential race to take a position on a now-failed ID plan from her home state governor.
Clinton has faced criticism from candidates in both parties for her noncommittal answers on New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's attempt to allow illegal immigrants in his state to receive driver's licenses. Spitzer abandoned the effort Wednesday.
"I support Governor Spitzer's decision today to withdraw his proposal," Clinton said in a statement. "As president, I will not support driver's licenses for undocumented people and will press for comprehensive immigration reform that deals with all of the issues around illegal immigration including border security and fixing our broken system."
Clinton stumbled when asked about the issue during a Democratic debate two weeks ago, and her new position comes the day before another debate where opponents are expected to raise the issue again.
Rival campaigns made clear they were not letting go of the issue.
"When it takes two weeks and six different positions to answer one question on immigration, it's easier to understand why the Clinton campaign would rather plant their questions than answer them," said Barack Obama spokesman Bill Burton, referring to the Clinton campaign's admission that aides had staged a question for her at an Iowa event.
Colleen Flanagan, a spokesman for Chris Dodd, called Clinton's position "flip-flopping cubed. She was for it before she was against it, before she was for it, before she was against it."
As we predicted here, this will be Hillary Clinton's doom. After John Kerry's flips and flops in 2004, anyone who runs that kind of campaign is finished.

The media says that the Iranian police "unveiled" this - a real Freudian slip if there was one.
Iran police unveil 'vice list'
TEHRAN (AFP) — Iranian police have unveiled a list of "vices" -- including makeup, un-Islamic dress and decadent movies -- being targeted in an ongoing moral crackdown, a conservative newspaper reported on Monday.
The list was published in the Jomhuri Eslami newspaper as part of a police drive launched in April which has seen the arrest of "thugs", raids on underground parties, seizures of satellite dishes, and street checks of improperly dressed individuals.
Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei last week urged police to keep up its crackdown on social vices, saying they must "fulfill their duties regardless of some opposition and propaganda."
Some moderates have questioned the need for the moral crackdown but conservatives have applauded police for a drive they say is popular with the public and necessary to improve security in society.
"The list of illegal behaviour against the security and morality of society which will be pursued by police... has been announced," the Jomhuri Eslami said.
Here are some of the things that Iranian police have been ordered NOT to crack down on:
Fucking goats (the national pasttime)
Throwing vomit at American flags
Taking a shit on an Islamic holiday
Beating your wife
Beating your wife AND your girlfriend
Blowing yourself up in a crowded place (as long as Jews and Americans are around)
And so on, and so forth...
Hillary Clinton is finished, one way or another.
This video, courtesy of the Republican National Committee, is evidence of what is coming next year if she wins the presidental nomination:
Ooh, that hurts. Hurts real bad.
The largest voter fraud case in Washington State history led a few weeks ago to three of the seven defendants on trial pleading guilty. Great news, right? This should teach those who abuse our political system.
But who did the abusing? After all, when one side of the aisle or the other commits a crime, they are identified...unless they are liberals.
No word in this story who is behind the fraud, but a small clue lets us know who was involved.
It was the Lyin' Left.
Three plead guilty in fake voter scheme
Three of seven defendants in the biggest voter-registration fraud scheme in Washington history have pleaded guilty and one has been sentenced, prosecutors said Monday.
The defendants were all temporary employees of ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, when they allegedly filled out and submitted more than 1,800 fictitious voter-registration cards during a 2006 registration drive in King and Pierce counties.
No votes were cast in the names of the phony voters. Prosecutors said the defendants committed fraud in order to keep their jobs without actually registering voters.
Hmmm...and just who is ACORN? Are they a right-wing group?
Of course not. They are just another liberal front group.
ACORN says it is a community group, but it is really a multi-million-dollar, multinational conglomerate. Its political agenda is driven by a relative handful of anti-corporate activists. ACORN spends millions of dollars to promote economic policies (like raising the minimum wage), but has admitted that it doesn't always want to abide by them. ACORN advocates for workers' rights and runs two unions, but has in the past fought its own employees' efforts to form a union.
ACORN's history makes for pretty interesting reading. The Clinton Administration found that ACORN was misspending government grants designed to help counsel the poor. Although it seeks minimum wage increases in cities and states across the country -- ACORN sued the state of California to get out of paying its own employees the state minimum wage.
So they are liberals! And the story did not mention that! It figures!

A hairdresser in the UK wanted a Muslim woman, who wanted to work for him, to remove her veil during work so that people could see her hair. Not unreasonable at all. She refused, and he did not hire her.
Now she is suing. For having her feelings hurt.
Hairdresser sued over Muslim headscarf ban
A hair salon owner is being sued for religious discrimination after refusing a Muslim teenager a job as a stylist because she wore a headscarf.
Sarah Desrosiers said she refused 19-year-old Bushra Noah the position because it was an "absolutely basic" requirement that customers could see their stylist's hair.
The 32-year-old, whose "alternative" salon in London specialises in "urban, funky punky" cuts, has already spent £1,000 fighting the case.
Miss Noah wants £15,000 for injury to her feelings plus an unspecified amount for lost earnings.
She maintains that her headscarf is an integral part of her religious beliefs.
Miss Desrosiers, who denies any discrimination, said: "The essence of my line of work is the display of hair.
"To me, it's absolutely basic that people should be able to see the stylist's hair.
"It has nothing to do with religion. It is just unfortunate that for her covering her hair symbolises religion."
She added: "I now feel like I have been branded a racist.
"My accountant is Muslim. I have never discriminated against Muslims. My name is being dragged through the mud and I feel victimised.
"This girl is suing me for more than I earn in a year. I am a small business and have only had my salon a year and a half."
Miss Noah, who is an experienced stylist but has been rejected for 25 jobs, was invited to the salon for a trial day in March after sending Miss Desrosiers her CV.
She claims when she arrived she was discriminated against and treated rudely after it became apparent she wore a headscarf.
Yesterday she said: "When I got there, she looked at me in shock.
"She started making excuses about wanting someone who lived locally but I knew it was the headscarf.
"She kept repeating 'You really should have told me'. She asked if I wore it all the time and I said 'Yes'. She asked if I would take it off for work and I said 'No'.
The teenager added: "Wearing a headscarf is very important for my religion and non-negotiable.
"It is about showing your modest side and being respectful in front of others, particularly males."
"I am British-born and know the urban, funky look," she added: "Just because I wear a headscarf does not mean that I do not follow the latest trends and fashions."
The case is due to be heard over three days at an employment tribunal in January.
Watch as the liberals give this woman tons of money, and put this person out of business, for refusing to kowtow to Muslims.
This must end, or we will all be lessened for it.
The MSM likes to build someone up only to tear them down. They spent the last year telling the American people that Hillary Clinton was the "inevitable" Downie nominee, and, more than likely, she would be the next President. Don't even bother looking at her opponents, they told us. She is a winner; she can do no wrong.
But a really bad debate in which her veneer came off, mixed with additional lapses and the new story that her staffers planted questions in crowds is leading to the new story: Is Hillary Clinton's campaign in free fall? Can she recover? Is she doomed?
No, she is not doomed. Free fall, maybe; but doomed, no.
Hillary Clinton suddenly vulnerable as bruises start to show
DES MOINES - Where did Hillary Clinton's mojo go?
That's what her campaign has to be asking after a rough two weeks. And more importantly, they have to be wondering how to recapture that fading aura of an unstoppable juggernaut.
Top Clinton strategist Mark Penn doesn't own up to his candidate suffering a dip, but he admits it's been tougher of late.
"The opponents went negative, and that created a new dynamic and a different set of headlines," Penn said.
The new dynamic emerged at the debate in Philadelphia two weeks ago, but didn't just spring from sharp criticism by her opponents. Clinton stumbled by offering fuzzy answers to some questions and refusing to take a stance on Gov. Spitzer's license plan for illegal immigrants.
Then Camp Clinton's damage control backfired as she was pounded for suggesting the "boys" ganged up on her. And Bill Clinton brought more scorn when he said the attempt to get an answer out of his wife on licenses verged on John Kerry Swift Boat territory.
Now Penn and company plan to stick to the high road, talking about Clinton's strength, experience and vision for America, fund-raising at a torrid rate and deploying Bill Clinton more.
They're also launching counterattacks, calling her opponents mudslingers.
"I think it's sinking in to the electorate that people who had pledges to not attack Democrats were abandoning those pledges," Penn said.
Clinton remains way ahead in national polls, though some have shown a slip and a survey in early voting New Hampshire out yesterday showed a tightening race there.
The focus for staving off any Clinton collapse, though, starts in Iowa, where the candidates wooed party faithful at the state Democrats' biggest event of the year over the weekend.
Iowa Democrats said they didn't feel Clinton is headed down yet, but many thought the bruises were starting to show over her immigration nonposition and a new flareup over revelations that Hillaryland planted questions in two "conversations" with voters.
"I've turned a little more negative on her because of the immigration issue," said Terry Edwards, a trucker from Waukee, Iowa. "She flip-flops on that. I'd like to know where she stands."
"She's vulnerable, definitely," said Paul Willis of Thornton, Iowa, who said Clinton has what it takes to win, but could also implode. "As people get to know the other candidates, they're saying, 'Maybe there is a second choice.'"
Some Democrats saw damage from the attacks but liked Clinton more.
"I think it is hurting her, although for me, it's made me feel a little better toward her," said Roy McCoy, of Riverside, Iowa. "I don't like bullying."
Yep, it is bullying. Poor, wittle Hillary.
But to see the media now thinking that Hillary is in deep dog shit is great. It will make her easier pickings for the Republicans once she gets the nomination.

Police are trying to capture a rapist in Chandler, Arizona, a small suburb of Phoenix. The victims described the suspect as "Hispanic," and the police followed up by sending out a description of him as a Hispanic male.
Enter the PC Police - a Spanish-language radio station objected to the suspect being called "Hispanic" because that leads to racial profiling.
Perhaps the police should say that he is a white man, so they can capture the wrong person.
Calling rapist a Hispanic irks radio station
Chandler police will not alter their description of the Chandler Rapist despite complaints from a Valley radio station about the department’s use of the word “Hispanic” to describe the attacker.
“I think this is racial profiling,” said Mayra Nieves, vice president of programming for KMYL (1190 AM).
Nieves said Hispanic is an ethnicity, not a race -- and many Hispanics are white or black. She said ethnicity should not be used when describing an attacker. Instead she said she would describe the Chandler Rapist as having “dark skin.”
But Chandler police spokesman Sgt. Rick Griner said his department will stand by its description, saying they release the details the victims give them.
“It would be irresponsible on our part to change or alter that,” he said.
This is another instance of morons running our country's affairs. And this woman has a responsible job at a radio station? Listeners in Arizona should call in and demand her resignation. She is an imbecile, and should be fired if she does not go voluntarily.

More good news from the front in the war on terror! No, we have not yet captured bin Laden, but in a stunning move the leftwing scumbags in Hollywood who have made some of the worst anti-American crappola in years, aimed at an anti-war audience, are falling on their asses as the movies are becoming huge bombs.
We noted this phenomenon just a few days ago, but now we have a reason from the dimwits who like to cover for the American-hating Left: People are so depressed from how bad the war is going that they just don't want to see any more about it. Actually, the reason these movies are failing is two fold: one, they SUCK, and, two, the American people have had it with the anti-American Left and their message of hate.
The wave of recent films set against the backdrop of war in Iraq and post-9/11 security has failed to win over film-goers keen to escape grim news headlines when they go to the movies, analysts say.
In a break with past convention, when films based on real conflicts were made only years after the last shots were fired, several politically-charged films have gone on release while America remains embroiled in Iraq.
Almost without exception, however, the crop of movies have struggled to turn a profit at the box-office and in many cases have received a mauling from unimpressed critics as well.
"Rendition," a drama starring Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal about the CIA's policy of outsourcing interrogation of terror suspects, has taken just under 10 million dollars at the box office, a disastrous return.
Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis's latest film "In the Valley of Elah," about a father investigating the death of his son in Iraq, earned favorable reviews but less than seven million dollars following its release in September.
Even the action-packed "The Kingdom," starring Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Garner, fell well below its 70 million budget with around 47 million dollars in ticket sales.
The poor returns do not augur well for more war films due for release in North America later this month, notably the Robert Redford-directed drama "Lions for Lambs" and Brian De Palma's hard-hitting "Redacted," based on the real-life rape and murder of an Iraqi schoolgirl by US soldiers.
Lew Harris, the editor of website Movies.com, said the films have struggled to be successful because the subject matters of Iraq and 9/11 remain too close to home. And in many cases, the films have not been entertaining enough.
"These movies have to be entertaining," Harris told AFP. "You can't just take a movie and make it anti-war or anti-torture and expect to draw people in.
"That's what happened with 'Rendition' and it has been a disaster," he said.
"People want war movies to have a slam-bang adventure feel to them ... But Iraq is a difficult war to portray in a kind of rah-rah-rah, exciting way.
"And it's just too close to home. The Vietnam war movies didn't start until long after the war was over."
Here's to seeing Hollywood fall on their asses. Let them learn a valuable lesson: never cheer for the other side, or your side will hate you for it and not pay to listen to your worthless message.

The liberals in America believe that Muslim terrorists who wish to destroy America deserve all the rights American citizens deserve, including lawyers, nice prisons, and ethnically-sensitive food.
Here is one of their good friends: Mohamed al-Owhali, who, being jailed in a "supermax" federal prison, does not get the Arabic-language newspapers he wants, and the prison officials took away his Walkman.
And now he is suing.
Hello, ACLU? Your client needs you.
Jailed Terrorist: "I Want My Walkman"
An al-Qaeda operative serving life in prison for his role in the bombing of American embassies in Africa contends that his rights are being violated by U.S. jailers who have denied him access to Arabic publications and religious books, limited his mail privileges, and no longer allow him to use a Walkman. Mohamed Al-Owhali, 32, claims that his incarceration at the "supermax" federal prison in Florence, Colorado has left him so severely depressed that he stopped eating for months, forcing Bureau of Prisons officials to feed him via a tube placed through his nose. In a new U.S. District Court lawsuit, Al-Owhali wants a judge to order prison brass to provide him with expedited mail services, expanded phone privileges, and access to radio and TV news broadcasts and English and Arabic newspapers and magazines. Currently, Al-Owhali claims, he is only provided with month-old copies of USA Today, "with several pages-sections removed." The convicted terrorist is held in virtual isolation in a special security unit at Florence, per Department of Justice guidelines known as Special Administrative Measures. Attached to Al-Owhali's handwritten October 19 lawsuit is a copy of an internal BoP complaint form filed by the inmate (a copy of which you'll find below) and a BoP memo to Al-Owhali detailing the SAM measures governing his incarceration. The Osama bin Laden disciple and three codefendants were convicted in 2001 for their roles in simultaneous car bomb attacks at U.S. embassies in Nairobi and Tanzania. Those blasts killed a total of 224 people and injured thousands of other victims.
Check out the 14 page lawsuit he has filed against the Bureau of Prisons (BOP), alleging that his civil rights have been violated. He's depressed? Depressed? Hurry - make sure his prison stay is a nice one! Order him some new drapes for the bars on his windows!
We can think of several ways that he should be violated. One is with a rusty meat hook right up his ass.
The fucking liberals who defend these pieces of shit are killing us. They are killing us all, and they must be stopped - somehow.

The Left has pinned the hopes of their entire bankrupt movement on Hillary Rodham Clinton. They realize that if they have any chance of winning the White House in 2008, they cannot elect Barack Hussein Obama, who had less experience in government than a pest strip, and Little Johnny Downwards, who spends more on hair care products than most American families do on food in a year, and who talks about poor people and then goes home to his spacious mansion in North Carolina.
Things were going smoothly in Operation God Please Elect Hillary Clinton Because We Cannot Stand to Lose Another Presidential Election for the Left until last week, when Hillary Clinton decided to say in one 30 second period that she was against driver's licenses for illegal aliens while she agreed it made sense to give illegal aliens driver's licenses, even though she never said it made sense.
The Left realizes what she has done - fuck things up real bad. And they are starting to panic.
Hitting A Vain
A full week after the Democratic debate, Hillary Clinton is still flailing on the licenses-for-illegals issue--justifying her position on unconvincing federalist grounds, letting her husband mount an equally specious it's-all-too-complicated defense. Maybe she can keep it going until Iowa Caucus Day! ... Yuval Levin is astounded by this performance. Wouldn't it be better for her just to take the hit for supporting Spitzer's plan and move on? The most troubling aspect of this incident, for Democrats, isn't that Hillary can't finesse an issue as well as her husband--we knew that. It's the possibility that a) she panics in adversity--a point Levin emphasizes or b) she's too vain to let herself be perceived as having given a wrong answer, so she goes back to correct it even when that only compounds the damage.
New polls are showing Clinton's leads nationally and in several states dropping by the hour. What happens if she does a Howard Dean and loses Iowa? Will we see mass liberal suicide if they lose another presidential election to the GOP?

In his last years, Gerald Ford became a drooling and doddering old fool who thought he could get Bill Clinton to admit to lying under oath, and who made derogatory comments about Donald Rumsfeld. If Ford had said that Clinton was a lying prick who should have been thrown out of office, not one media outlet would have bothered to listen to a 90 year old man. If he had bad words for any other liberal, he would be written off.
But because Ford said what the liberals wanted to hear, he got new respect from them - as if that was worth anything. "Ford is a statesman!" they yelled. "He knows of which he speaks!" said the same dolts who once called him "Dumb Jerry" and laughed at Chevy Chase impersonating him as a moron on Saturday Night Live.
Now, from Tom DeFrank, we get a book that Ford allegedly wanted released only after his death. In it, we get this nugget of bullshit: that "senior Republican figures" approached Ford to get George W. Bush to drop Dick Cheney from the Republican ticket in 2004. Wait - who are these "senior Republican figures"? DeFrank won't say.
Book Gives Another Look at Ford's Mixed Feelings About Cheney
He may have been his White House chief of staff in the 1970s, but by 2004, former president Gerald R. Ford harbored serious reservations about whether Vice President Cheney should be kept on the ticket for reelection. According to a new book, senior Republican figures approached Ford about getting President Bush to dump Cheney in 2004 and, while Ford rebuffed them, he seemed sympathetic to their cause.
"Dick has not been the asset I expected on the ticket," Ford told journalist Thomas M. DeFrank in an off-the-record conversation in March 2004. "As you know, he's a great friend of mine, he did a great job for me, but he has not clicked, if that's the right word. God knows he works at it."
More evidence that listening to a doddering 90 year old fool means nothing.
Now, imagine if some high-ranking Downercrat said that "senior Downercrat figures" approached him in 1998 to get Clinton to resign for lying under oath. The first question would be, "what senior figures?" Name them, dammit, the liberals would say. But with this bullshit story, we get no such questions as to who these "senior Republican figures" are.
Bullshit from the Left. It figures.

In a year in power, the Downercrats in Congress have passed an ethics reform bill and an increase in the minimum wage.
That's it. Two things. In a year.
Oh, wait, there has been more: endless investigations of the Bush administration. All of which found out what we already knew: nothing illegal happened.
If the Republicans had done as little as the Downies had done, with as many mistakes and stupid statements, the media in this country would be crucifying them.
But from the dolts in the press we get nothing.
Like we get from the Downercrats.
Frustration Builds for Democrats
The way in which Senate Democrats wavered and then consented to the confirmation of Michael B. Mukasey as attorney general reflects the party's broader struggle to make headway on its national-security agenda, despite President Bush's unpopularity.
On questions such as Mr. Mukasey's stance on waterboarding, warrantless wiretapping and the war in Iraq, Democrats have been stymied by Republicans in Congress and the White House. That has sparked frustration among supporters, especially those on the left, who anticipated that last year's congressional takeover would force some policy changes.
These dashed expectations are one reason polls give Congress an approval rating lower than Mr. Bush's. The difficulties faced by Democrats on these issues look certain to complicate the party's bid to expand House and Senate majorities and regain the White House in 2008, a wartime election in which national security will be a major issue.
Democrats acknowledge the difficulty in speaking up for civil liberties while maintaining a tough stand on homeland security and terrorism.
"On issues of wiretapping or torture or any of the other tools used to fight terrorism, it's a complicated message to sell," says Stephanie Cutter, a Democratic strategist in Washington who worked on John Kerry's presidential campaign. She says Democrats in Congress and their supporters have "faced a bit of an awakening that they're not getting everything they wanted."
On Friday, two senior Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Charles Schumer of New York and Dianne Feinstein of California, rescued President Bush's pick to lead the Justice Department when they announced their plan to vote for his confirmation when it comes up for a vote tomorrow.
Mr. Mukasey had run into trouble earlier in the week after he refused to define waterboarding as torture and was imprecise in answering questions about the White House's assertion of broad presidential powers. As a result, a handful of Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee said they would vote against the nominee, threatening to spoil what had previously been thought to be an easy confirmation.
Liberal groups were stirred to action by the uproar over waterboarding -- an interrogation technique that simulates drowning -- and by President Bush's public statements castigating Democrats for not giving Mr. Mukasey a speedy confirmation. Left-leaning groups and bloggers over the weekend renewed criticism that despite winning the House and Senate a year ago, Democrats were "caving in" to the president.
These liberals are pathetic. Whining, sickening little parasites.
No wonder their "media heroes" are Rosie O'Donnell and Keith Dimbulbermann!

Joobo predicts that while the Downercrats may nominate this woman for President, she cannot win.
Proof? Check out this video - from Little Johnny Downwards, no less.
It is, to put it mildly, devastating.
Every Republican candidate and 527 group should air this commercial sans the Edwards tag. Hillary Clinton will become more unpopular than the clap in 2008.

They want to make it look like Britain's.
So, let's look at Britain.
And then let's cry.
Pensioner spends life savings on vital op after NHS cancels four times
A 75-year-old man was forced to spend his life savings on a vital hip operation after the NHS cancelled his appointments four times.
Edward Crane claims he has nothing left after clearing out his bank account for the £9000 private surgery after waiting more than six months for a consultation at his local hospital.
The pensioner, from Rainham, Essex, said he felt he had "no choice" but to shell out the cash after suffering months of agony.
Mr Crane was told he needed a hip replacement in February this year and was referred to Queen's Hospital in Romford.
But after three consecutive consultations were cancelled, the desperate pensioner looked into paying for the operation himself and discovered it would cost him £8,750.
After the fourth cancellation, he used two insurance policies and pooled his life savings to pay for the operation he needed to end the pain. He had the surgery four days later.
His daughter Polly Taylor, 47, said she was outraged at the way her father had been treated by the NHS.
She said: "It has been heartbreaking. He was in so much pain. He had an x-ray at A&E which showed he had no hip joint at all. If he hadn't had it done privately he would have died of the pain.
"He has nothing left now. It's not fair how the NHS treats old people."
Barking, Havering and Redbridge NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, said the average wait for a hip replacement is six months.
A spokesman said: "Mr Crame has not complained to the trust and we are unable to comment on individual cases due to patient confidentiality.
"It is extremely unlikely anyone would be able to claim back money from the NHS if they had chosen to be treated privately."
In short, the message from the powers that be? Take our shitty care or go fuck yourself.
HillaryCare in action. Wait for it - and then drop dead!

The followers and backers of Iranian President "Mahmoudy the Goatfucker" Iamanutjob like to say that economic sanctions against Iran will only help that Nazi government stay in power.
Of course, as more Iranians see the Iranian economy go downhill, perhaps they will not be so supportive of Mahmoudy.
Case in point: Inflation is running at 22%. Can anyone say "recession"?
Iran bank chief warns Ahmadinejad on money supply
Iran's new central bank governor has warned the government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over money supply growth, urging measures to prevent a further rise in inflation, the press reported Thursday.
"The government, the private sector and anyone who cares about the nation's economy should prevent the increase of liquidity," said Tahmasb Mazaheri, quoted by most moderate Iranian newspapers.
"It has an inflationary impact and it will lead to higher prices," said Mazaheri, who was appointed in September as part of a wide-ranging economic reshuffle by Ahmadinejad.
At the end of May 2007, the central bank said money supply had grown by a colossal year-on-year rate of 39.4 percent.
Mazaheri said money supply in Iran is currently running at the equivalent of 140 billion dollars, double the average for the year 2005-2006 which was 70 billion dollars.
He complained that the central bank in the past had dipped into its reserves to offer credit lines to Iranian banks -- causing liquidity to rocket higher -- and in future would be stricter with allocating loans.
"The banks should not rely on the central bank when it comes to handing out credits since last year it caused the increase in the liquidity."
Mazaheri also cautioned: "The decrease in the liquidity will not happen overnight."
The huge growth in money supply has added to fears over prices in the Islamic republic which have surged in recent weeks, especially for basic foodstuffs and services, hitting the poor hardest.
Iran's year-on-year inflation is currently 15.8 percent, according to the central bank. However, many economists dispute this and Iranian parliamentary research has estimated that inflation this year will be 22.4 percent.
The Iranian economy will suffer even more as cash dries up under withering US sanctions. Here's for seeing the Iranian people overthrow these thugs for destroying their country.
