Take a look at this hilarious clip of Jesse Jackass, noted racist and moron, who is put on the spot by Chrissie Matthews over Barack Obama's wife saying that she was proud of her country for the first time in her life.
His response? Bill O'Reilly said that no one should bring out a lynch party against her, and Jackass says that "He is on the [sic] Fox, on the FCC." Then watch as Matthews actually challenges him rather than kissing his black ass.
Yep, Jesse Jackass is a moron, all right.
If Barack Obama is elected President, we can look forward to having Jesse Jackass installed as Minister of National Stoopidity.

As Barack Obama, the untested and empty suit of a presidential candidate, appears more and more likely to be the Downtrodden Party's candidate for President, we all need to examine this man's record and see what is behind the empty suit.
My, is it empty.
First up, we have The Washington Post - The Washington Post! - listing...wait for it..."The Top Obama Flip-Flops."
This is too rich for words.
Top Obama Flip-Flops
Top Obama Flip-Flops
1. Special interests In January, the Obama campaign described union contributions to the campaigns of Clinton and John Edwards as "special interest" money. Obama changed his tune as he began gathering his own union endorsements. He now refers respectfully to unions as the representatives of "working people" and says he is "thrilled" by their support.
2. Public financing Obama replied "yes" in September 2007 when asked if he would agree to public financing of the presidential election if his GOP opponent did the same. Obama has now attached several conditions to such an agreement, including regulating spending by outside groups. His spokesman says the candidate never committed himself on the matter.
3. The Cuba embargo In January 2004, Obama said it was time "to end the embargo with Cuba" because it had "utterly failed in the effort to overthrow Castro." Speaking to a Cuban American audience in Miami in August 2007, he said he would not "take off the embargo" as president because it is "an important inducement for change."
4. Illegal immigration In a March 2004 questionnaire, Obama was asked if the government should "crack down on businesses that hire illegal immigrants." He replied "Oppose." In a Jan. 31, 2008, televised debate, he said that "we do have to crack down on those employers that are taking advantage of the situation."
5. Decriminalization of marijuana While running for the U.S. Senate in January 2004, Obama told Illinois college students that he supported eliminating criminal penalties for marijuana use. In the Oct. 30, 2007, presidential debate, he joined other Democratic candidates in opposing the decriminalization of marijuana.
And those are the top five The Post wishes to reveal. What about the others? We shall see.
How wonderful, though!
On the polling front, while it is early, we find that Obama's negatives are starting to rise, while McCain's are holding steady.
Second thoughts from the electorate?
For or Against Presidential Candidates; McCain Has Less Core Opposition Than Clinton or Obama
Thirty-four percent (34%) of all voters say they will definitely vote for John McCain if he is on the ballot this November. Thirty-three percent (33%) will definitely vote against him while 29% say their support hinges on who his opponent is.
Barack Obama has the same number who will definitely vote for him--34%. But, more people are committed to voting against him than McCain. Forty-three percent (43%) say they will definitely reject him at the ballot box. For 18%, their support depends on his opponent.
For Hillary Clinton, 32% will definitely vote for her if she is on the ballot and 46% will definitely vote against. Core opposition to Clinton, the best-known of the candidates as the long campaign season began, hovered in the high 40s through most of the past year.
Throughout 2007, support for McCain was somewhat softer than now. As late as December, Rasmussen Reports showed only 22% definitely supporting him, 33% against, and 39% waiting to see the opposition. Between June and November, firm support for him had slipped below 20%.
There was less uncertainty about Obama during 2007. In December, only 28% had a wait-and-see attitude. Obama's support was then 29%, with 36% definitely opposed.
Thus, while the base of strong support has risen for both men in recent weeks, it's risen only slightly for Obama. On the other hand, core opposition to McCain, the least of any candidate's, is the same as in December; whereas strong opposition to Obama has jumped seven percentage points.
What McCain and the GOP need to do is start running commercials, NOW, to bloody Obama as much as possible. Get some of the 527s to do it for them if necessary. They need to make Obama as popular as the clap by Labor Day.

Little Ralphie Nader, the far-left kook who deigns himself as some sort of politician, says he will run for President again.
Downercrats, who believe they can win the presidency this November, are in full throated spew against Little Ralphie.
Nader announces run for president
WASHINGTON - Ralph Nader on Sunday announced a fresh bid for the White House, criticizing the top contenders as too close to big business and dismissing the possibility that his third-party candidacy could tip the election to Republicans.
The longtime consumer advocate is still loathed by many Democrats who accuse him of costing Al Gore the 2000 election.
Nader said most people are disenchanted with the Democratic and Republican parties due to a prolonged Iraq war and a shaky economy. He also blamed tax and other corporate-friendly policies under the Bush administration that he said have left many lower- and middle-class people in debt.
"You take that framework of people feeling locked out, shut out, marginalized, disrespected," he said. "You go from Iraq, to Palestine/Israel, from Enron to Wall Street, from Katrina to the bungling of the Bush administration, to the complicity of the Democrats in not stopping him on the war, stopping him on the tax cuts."
Nader, who turns 74 later this week, announced his candidacy on NBC's "Meet the Press."
In a later interview with The Associated Press, he rejected the notion of himself as a spoiler candidate, saying the electorate will not vote for a "pro-war John McCain." He also predicted his campaign would do better than in 2004, when he won just 0.3 percent of the vote as an independent.
"This time we're ready for them," said Nader of the Democratic Party lawsuits that kept him off the ballot in some states.
Democratic candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton quickly sought to portray Nader's announcement as having little impact.
"Obviously, it's not helpful to whomever our Democratic nominee is. But it's a free country," said Clinton, who called Nader's announcement a "passing fancy."
If Little Ralphie wins even .3% of the vote, especially in key states, he takes votes out of the hide of the Downercrats. And this only helps the GOP.
Thanks, Ralphie. You are the gift that keeps giving.

Chrissie Matthews usually asks softball questions of his liberal guests despite the name of his low-rated show. (He saves the "hardball" questions for conservatives who waste their time showing up.)
But last night, he put a key question to one Obama supporter: Can you name one legislative accomplishment of Obama?
The guy, a Texas state Senator, became flustered and then admitted he could not name one.
And this is news? We have telling folks here for two years that Obama is no hat AND no cattle. He is simply an empty suit vying to be President of the United States with no qualifications.
Obama's people blasted the question, because it makes them and their candidate look really bad.
Someone should make a commercial out of this. It shows how empty Obama truly is.

Barack Obama's wife, Michelle, told an audience that "for the first time" in her adult life, she is proud of America.
For the first time? Nothing done before her empty suit of a husband ran for President made her proud to be an American?
Is this the kind of dimwitted leftwing thinking that we want running our country?
Check out the video...and make your own decision on what she said.
Yep, Michelle Obama is a moron - just like her lying, thieving empty suit of a husband.
Both of them need to be defeated and sent packing back to their stolen mansion in Illinois as soon as possible.

Feeling their oats as Barack Obama leads in the delegate race for the Downie presidential nod, some of his backers are now warning their party that if Hillary Clinton somehow pulls her shit out of the fire and wins the nomination, that they will destroy the party's convention in Denver.
Everyone: pray it happens, and rub your hands in glee if it does.
Wilder warns of convention chaos
Richmond Mayor L. Douglas Wilder warns there will be chaos at the Democratic National Convention if superdelegates anoint a nominee who did not win the most popular votes.
If that happens, the scene at the Democrats' August convention in Denver could be worse than the unrest at the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago, Wilder said today on the CBS program "Face the Nation."
"You know what a mess that was," Wilder, an Obama supporter, told host Bob Schieffer.
"If the majority of the American people" voting in the Democratic primaries and caucuses back either Obama or Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton "and if the superdelegates intervene to get in the way of it and say, 'Oh no, we're going to determine what's best,' there will be chaos at the convention," Wilder said.
"It does nothing to help the Democrats -- and if you think 1968 was bad, you watch 2008," Wilder said. If that happens, "it will be worse."
Considering that their silly party instituted a proportional, rather than winner-take-all, vote in each state, it is possible for someone to get less popular votes but more delegates. Then again, that is the Downercrat system for you.
But the winner gets more delegates, not more popular votes. All Downies knew this going in - and now Wilder is mad? Tough shit, buddy.
Imagine it this way: in the Super Bowl, one team gets more yards, more passes, more interceptions, and holds the ball for more time overall. But the other team gets 7 more points and wins. After all, by Wilder's yardstick, the first team should win, since they got more of the things that allegedly count. But the name of the game in football is points - and the name of the game in politics is delegates. So if someone gets less popular votes but a majority of delegates, they should win, right? Not to Wilder.
We can only wish to see the Downercrats crack up like they did in 1968. Watching their convention dissolve into a bloody mess would result in the salvation of America.
Sharon Stone knows two things: how to spread her legs or show her tits in movies, and to make absolutely imbecilic political statements, because she is a tried-and-true moron.
She can't do the former anymore, so she decided to do the latter. And while in Cairo, Egypt, no less, to an audience which loves to hear foolish Americans bash their own country.
Iraqi Deaths Pain Sharon Stone
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Sharon Stone believes the Sept. 11 attacks should not have been used as a pretext for the United States to launch wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, according to her comments published Monday in a pan-Arab newspaper.
In her interview with Al Hayat, the actress also bemoaned what she called Americans' decision to ignore the deaths of so many Iraqis.
"I feel at great pain when the spotlight is on the death of 4,000 American soldiers, while 600,000 Iraqi deaths are ignored," she said. "War is not a movie, it is a tragedy of dead bodies, victims, the disabled, orphans, widows and the displaced."
Stone spoke in English and her comments were translated and published in Arabic. An English transcript of the interview was not available.
Al Hayat published excerpts of the interview from December, when Stone attended the fourth Dubai International Film Festival in the United Arab Emirates. The paper's sister publication, Leha, is to publish the entire interview Wednesday.
Stone came to the region seeking answers for herself because, she said, the U.S. media has failed to provide Americans with the truth.
"I feel sad when I realize how much truth is being changed or obscured in the American media," she said.
The star of "Basic Instinct" and other movies criticized both Arab countries and Israel for failing to resolve their decades-long conflict. She said she also opposes any military conflict with Iran.
It is so refreshing to hear a dimwit make comments about US foreign policy, while at the same time making up out of whole cloth (Rosie O'Donnell does the same thing) the numbers of Iraqis killed in the war. It is 40,000 (a number far too high), not 600,000. Where did Ms. Beaver Shot get that number? From leftist websites who made it up themselves, with some help from fellow numbnuts George Soros.
Sharon Stone should just stick to making bad films like "Basic Instinct 2" and avoid making political statements. She can't act, and she can't think, either.

More evidence from the UK that nationalized and socialized medicine, as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama want to bring to us by force at the end of a gun, is a failure and should never have been born.
Ambulances in Britain are now waiting outside with patients, as their lives ebb away, so that the ambulances do not have to go back out to get new patients.
You heard that right. They are trying to get people to die away from hospitals and NHS clinics so that there will be no reporting on the time lag getting to them.
Only in socialism can such a thing exist.
A&E patients left in ambulances for up to FIVE hours 'so trusts can meet government targets'
Seriously ill patients are being kept in ambulances outside hospitals for hours so NHS trusts do not miss Government targets.
Thousands of people a year are having to wait outside accident and emergency departments because trusts will not let them in until they can treat them within four hours, in line with a Labour pledge.
The hold-ups mean ambulances are not available to answer fresh 999 calls.
Doctors warned last night that the practice of "patient-stacking" was putting patients' health at risk.
Figures obtained by the Liberal Democrats show that last year 43,576 patients waited longer than one hour before being let into emergency units.
Only seven out of 11 ambulance trusts responded to the survey, so the true figure could be far higher.
Liberal Democrat health spokesman Norman Lamb is writing to health secretary Alan Johnson to demand an urgent investigation into the practice.
"This is evidence of shocking systematic failure in our emergency services," he said.
Labour brought in the four-hour A&E target to end the scandal of patients waiting for days in casualty or being kept on trolleys in corridors.
But a shortage of out-of-hours GP care, after thousands of doctors opted out of treating patients outside working hours under lucrative new contracts, means more and more are going to casualty units, putting them under greater pressure.
Dr Jonathan Fielden of the British Medical Association said: "The vast majority of patients coming into hospital by ambulance are in critical need of care in hospital and therefore delay can worsen their outcome."
Sam Oestreicher of Unison, which represents most ambulance workers, said: "Ambulances should not be used as mobile waiting rooms. They should be freed to do their job.
"These figures show there's a terrible-and colossal waste of ambulance resources."
Read that last sentence again: "These figures show there's a terrible-and colossal waste of ambulance resources."
Anyone who understands economics, and who has studied the system of socialism, will realize that same thing happens across a planned economy. Just look at what is happening right now in Venezuela: shortages, no food, no fuel.
Socialism: the Downercrats wants to bring their failed system to you starting next January. Will the American people be stupid enough to allow it to happen? Or will they resist at all costs?

If you are against Islamic nutjobs, the Left calls you a racist. If you question for a second the fake science behind "climate change," the Left says that you hate the planet earth and want children to die. Now, in a new flap, the Left in Britain thinks that drinking bottled water is a sin against the planet.
Next from the Left: breathing hurts the planet, and people must stop doing it.
Bottled water 'is immoral'
Drinking bottled water should be made as unfashionable as smoking, according to a government adviser.
"We have to make people think that it's unfashionable just as we have with smoking. We need a similar campaign to convince people that this is wrong," said Tim Lang, the Government's naural resources commissioner.
Phil Woolas, the environment minister, added that the amount of money spent on mineral water "borders on being morally unacceptable".
Their comments come as new research shows that drinking a bottle of water has the same impact on the environment as driving a car for a kilometre. Conservation groups and water providers have started a campaign against the £2 billion industry.
A BBC Panorama documentary, "Bottled Water: Who Needs It?", to be broadcast tomorrow says that in terms of production, a litre bottle of Evian or Volvic generates up to 600 times more CO2 than a litre of tap water.
And here is the note from the BBC on that "shlockumentary":
Bottled Water: Who Needs It?
In the UK last year we spent nearly £2 billion buying bottled water, yet a billion people around the world don't have access to safe drinking water.
On Monday Panorama looks at the impact the success of our bottled water industry is having on the environment.
Former BBC Environment Correspondent Tom Heap examines the UK consumers love affair with bottled water.
Sales of bottled water have boomed in recent decades, growing 200-fold from the 1970s.
But a litre of one of the UK's most popular French mineral waters generates up to 600 times more CO2 equivalent than a litre of Thames tap water.
The programme travels to Fiji where some of the more expensive bottled mineral water comes from - yet one in three Fijians do not have access to safe tap water.
Panorama also attended a water taste test undertaken by sommeliers - to see if experts could tell difference between some of the most expensive mineral waters and the liquid coming out of London's taps.
So, the new message from the Left is that by drinking bottled water, you are destroying the planet and, at the same time, denying other people "safe drinking water."
Why can't someone, somewhere, tell these intimidating fucks to go off somewhere and die? Or just leave the rest of us alone already with their baloney?

The BBC tries its darndest to make sure that Islamic terrorists who murder hundreds, if not thousands, of people are lionized as heroes because they fight America and Israel.
Case in point: Imad Mughniyeh, the Palestinian terrorist behind the murders of 283 US Marines in Beirut in 1983, and the hijacking of TWA 847 in 1985 which led to the murder of US Navy Seal Robert Dean Stethem, who was executed and thrown from the jet when his military service was revealed.
This week, Mughniyeh was killed himself in a car bombing in Damascus, Syria. To the BBC, he is a man who was "a top Hezbollah leader" merely "behind a wave of hostage-taking in Lebanon during the 1980s."
As the BBC means, this guy was not all bad, just a little confused. That's what liberalism does to the mind: good is bad, and bad is good.
Bomb kills top Hezbollah leader
The Lebanese group, Hezbollah says one of its top leaders, Imad Mughniyeh, has died in a bombing in Damascus, and has blamed Israel for assassinating him.
Mughniyeh is widely believed to be behind a wave of Western hostage-taking in Lebanon during the 1980s.
He had been in hiding for years and was high on US and Israeli wanted lists.
The Israeli prime minister's office later issued a statement rejecting "the attempt by terror groups to attribute to it any involvement" in the killing.
Mughniyeh, in his late 40s, is variously described as special operations or intelligence chief of Hezbollah's secretive military wing, the Islamic Resistance.
Correspondents say his death is a significant blow to Hezbollah, which battled Israel in the 2006 Lebanon war, and its Iranian and Syrian backers.
So, Israel "assassinated" him. Any note from Israel? Just a denial of killing him. But from his fellow Islamic nutjobs and murderers, we get the following statement:
Later, the Syrian government confirmed Mughniyeh had been killed and said investigations were still underway to find the perpetrators.
"Syria, which condemns this cowardly terrorist act, expresses condolences to the martyr family and to the Lebanese people," Interior Minister Bassam Abdul-Majeed said in a statement.
Iran also condemned the killing, praising Mughniyeh as a martyr and describing the attack as "yet another brazen example of organised state terrorism by the Zionist regime".
Notice: nothing except one sentence that Mughniyeh was wanted for the hijacking of 847 - with no word on Stethem - and nothing on the 283 US Marines murdered.
So, says the BBC, let us mourn this poor man, obviously murdered by bad old Israel.
The BBC: One only wishes that some confused Islamic terrorist would drive a truck bomb right into their headquarters. Would they bother reporting the act if one did?

David Shuster, who was fired from Fox News for lying and who has spent his career at MSNBC caught in one lie or another, has been suspended from The Network No One WatchesTM because he said that the Clintons were "pimping" out their daughter.
Could this be the last time that Shuster
Wow! Now check out the story behind the comment, as we see the continuation of the meltdown at MSNBC.
How long will it be before this "network" is finished? Can it last the year?

Calls are now coming for Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, to resign after he said that instituting sharia law in Britain was "unavoidable."
Bye, bye, asshole. Your days are numbered.
Archbishop of Canterbry `Should Resign' over Sharia Row
A senior Church of England clergyman called today for the resignation of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, over his remarks supporting Sharia in England.
The call, from a long-standing member of the Church’s governing body, the General Synod, demonstrated the strength of the backlash Dr Williams that faces from within his own Church — as well as from political and other faith leaders.
The senior Synod member, who insisted on remaining anonymous, told The Times: “A lot of people will now have lost confidence in him. I am just so shocked, and cannot believe a man of his intelligence could be so gullible. I can only assume that all the Muslims he meets are senior leaders of the community who tell him what a wonderful book the Koran is.
“There have been a lot of calls today for him to resign. I don’t suppose he will take any notice, but yes, he should resign.”
Williams is a moron because the Koran is an evil work of mass murder followed by a cult of fanatics. And if Williams does not step aside, someone should shoot him. Seriously.

Rowan Williams, the dunce who is the Archbishop of Canterbury, has admitted in an interview that to placate Muslims in Britain, the UK will have to institute sharia law.
You heard it here first, folks. The British have surrendered to Islam.
Sharia law in UK is 'unavoidable'
The Archbishop of Canterbury says the adoption of certain aspects of Sharia law in the UK "seems unavoidable".
Dr Rowan Williams told Radio 4's World at One that the UK has to "face up to the fact" that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.
Dr Williams argues that adopting parts of Islamic Sharia law would help maintain social cohesion.
For example, Muslims could choose to have marital disputes or financial matters dealt with in a Sharia court.
He says Muslims should not have to choose between "the stark alternatives of cultural loyalty or state loyalty".
In an exclusive interview with BBC correspondent Christopher Landau, ahead of a lecture to lawyers in London on Monday, Dr Williams argues this relies on Sharia law being better understood.
At the moment, he says "sensational reporting of opinion polls" clouds the issue.
Yep, those pesky opinion polls that show that a vast majority of the British people want British law for Britain, and that the Muslims can go fuck themselves.
Opinion polls! Who cares about them! We Muslims will do what we want, and force everyone to do what we want! And if they don't, we will blow them up!
This is a world-wide war, folks. And now the British, who stood against zeppelins in World War I and Nazi bombs in World War II, have surrendered to some sick Muslims with bombs strapped to their chests and women in burqas.
Pathetic. Simply pathetic.

We noted the other day that the far left loons who run Berkeley, California, want the Marines who recruit there to leave because the Left is filled with anti-American simpletons. The backlash against Berkeley has started to make them nervous, and some of the loons are pushing to rescind the declaration against the Marines.
It is the usually fun watching the Left dissemble as usual when they are caught being themselves.
In Berkeley, push to rescind letter to Marines
A week after blasting the Marines as "unwelcome intruders" in Berkeley, two City Council members want the city to back off the declaration that ignited the wrath of the nation's right wing and inspired a Republican senator to try to sever Berkeley's federal funding.
Council members Betty Olds and Laurie Capitelli on Monday proposed that Berkeley rescind its letter to the U.S. Marine Corps that stated that the downtown Berkeley recruiting center "is not welcome in our city," and publicly declare that Berkeley is against the war but supports the troops.
The City Council will vote on Olds' and Capitelli's two proposals at its meeting next Tuesday.
"I think we shouldn't be seen across the country as hating the Marines," said Olds, who voted against last week's proposals. "If you make a mistake, like we did, you should admit it and correct it and move on."
The brouhaha started last week when the council passed two items condemning the Marine recruiting center on Shattuck Square, which opened about a year ago. The first called on the city clerk to send a letter to the Marines telling them they're unwelcome, and the second item granted Code Pink a parking space in front of the recruiting office every Wednesday afternoon and allowed the group to operate a loudspeaker.
After the items passed, the council was besieged with criticism from right-wing groups and military supporters. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., proposed that the federal government cut off funds for Berkeley, including lunch programs, ferry service and UC Berkeley.
Olds said she heard from hundreds of people angered by the city's action, including many in her Berkeley hills district.
"People are so mad about this. They have relatives in the service, and now they think they're not welcome in Berkeley," she said. "My twin brother was a Marine in World War II. He'd be turning in his grave if he saw this."
The council appears split on the idea of backing down. Some council members said the original proposals inadvertently insulted veterans and those currently serving in the military. Others said Berkeley should stand by its convictions.
"People are used to Berkeley taking a stand for peace, but you have to do it intelligently," said Councilman Kriss Worthington, who voted against sending the letter calling the Marine Corps unwelcome. "You don't want to slap one group in the face and then, the next minute, slap the other group. I think we have an obligation to be thoughtful and sensitive and not be counterproductive to the cause of peace."
Councilwoman Dona Spring said the council should not be cowed by the volume of hate mail and threats.
"I still oppose the Marines recruiting in Berkeley because it's one way of protesting this wasteful war," she said. "Our military policy is a shambles. But we're not in opposition to the Marines; we oppose the policy that directs the Marines."
Meanwhile, the Code Pink protesters said they were disappointed that Berkeley might rescind its letter to the Marines.
"I hope they're not acting out of intimidation," said Code Pink spokeswoman Medea Benjamin. "Berkeley is a city of peace, and a recruiting station does not fit Berkeley's values."
Mayor Tom Bates, a former Army captain, said it probably wouldn't hurt if the council clarified its position.
"It's a symbol, but there are consequences to symbols," he said. "A lot of people think we're anti-Marine, but there's a difference between the warriors and the war. This is an attempt to clarify that."
The Left is just sickening. We here at Joobo keep saying that they are ruining America, and each passing day they prove us right.

To try and keep track of the delusions and psychoses of the Left is a chore in itself. Check out this note from Far Left Nut of 2007 Rosie O'Donnell, as she rants and raves her way to what should be a long stay at the Fruitcake Home for the Insane.
Rosie O'Sixchins says that President Bush almost killed her. You heard right - he almost killed her. But, somehow, he missed. How, when she is fatter than 12 Islamic terrorists?
Burned Up and Burned Out by Politics
President Bush almost killed me. It's true, and I have the scars to prove it -- multiple scars that are part of the public record -- you saw them in magazines and on my show, and you can see them on my blog frequently -- no twelve year wait required.
It was 2000, and the Republican National Convention was on television. The whole affair felt something like a home invasion, with a chronically smirking and arrogant George W. Bush as ringleader. Not wishing to be robbed of my optimism and hope at the time -- or to tumble into depression and despair -- I shut off the TV and decided to go fishing.
I needed gear, so I went to the store and bought a few things, including a knife, which I used to cut the price tags off of the fishing poles.
Now, I could have stabbed myself 100 times in the hand and not managed to do the damage I did with that one poke to the inside of my middle finger. I went all out, though, and got everything -- skin, ligaments, tendons, nerves. Maximum impact, including a particularly nasty staph infection that almost left me dead.
That's my personal war story from the demoralizing Bush years, and probably a minor one, considering the 935 documented lies told by the Bush administration that thrust us into an unjust war, killing thousands of Iraqi civilians and nearly 4000 Americans. One near-death experience probably pales in comparison to the $9 trillion dollar debt heaped upon the collective back of America, or the gross war profiteering by corporate friends of Cheney and Bush, or even the $10 billion dollar third-quarter profit Exxon recently reported.
So, here is Tubalard's idea of "Bush almost killed me": She bought a knife, and because she is a thoughtless turd and "could have" stabbed herself because she is depressed over Bush winning, it is all his fault.
You cannot make this stuff up. It is proof positive that Bush Derangement Syndrome (BDS) is a certifiable disease of the Left.

Britain is slowly becoming a shithole, and it is because of the leftist government and the teachers' unions and other assorted leftwing assholes who are ruining that country.
We noted what is happening in schools with making sure that children know that gay parents are okay, with a word from some freak named Ed Balls. Now, we get a story illustrating just what leftwing education does to children: it destroys their minds.
Quarter of Brits think Churchill was myth: poll
LONDON (AFP) - Britons are losing their grip on reality, according to a poll out Monday which showed that nearly a quarter think Winston Churchill was a myth while the majority reckon Sherlock Holmes was real.
The survey found that 47 percent thought the 12th century English king Richard the Lionheart was a myth.
And 23 percent thought World War II prime minister Churchill was made up. The same percentage thought Crimean War nurse Florence Nightingale did not actually exist.
Three percent thought Charles Dickens, one of Britain's most famous writers, is a work of fiction himself.
Indian political leader Mahatma Gandhi and Battle of Waterloo victor the Duke of Wellington also appeared in the top 10 of people thought to be myths.
Meanwhile, 58 percent thought Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective Holmes actually existed; 33 percent thought the same of W. E. Johns' fictional pilot and adventurer Biggles.
UKTV Gold television surveyed 3,000 people.
So, Sherlock Holmes and "Biggles" existed, but Churchill and Florence Nightengale didn't, right?
Maybe we can ask Americans in ten years whether or not Bill and Hillary Clinton were imaginary. Imaginary nightmares, that is.
The MSM in the United States likes to coyly stay away from the subject, but as Hillary Clinton gets closer and closer to winning the Downie nomination for President, all of the major media outlets who have sided with the Left for years looks into it and finds a real nightmare hitting them in the face: Hillary Clinton is hated across America, and her nomination "may" unite Republicans.
Sorry to inform Reuters, which has been issuing DNC press releases as actual news, but Hillary will unite Republicans. And Independents. And many Downercrats. All to vote against her in November.
Hillary Clinton may unite Republicans
Tom Effertz is 73 and a wheat farmer. Rosie Erganian is 52 and lives in a town on the Missouri River. He's a Republican. She's a Democrat. Both Missourians want anyone but Democrat Hillary Clinton for U.S. president.
"We're tired of the Hillary thing," Effertz said. "We'd had enough of Bill and Hillary."
"I do not like the way they've been kind of nasty," said Erganian, of Rocheport, Missouri. "I don't want anybody in office like that."
Concerns among Democrats about how Clinton might energize Republicans have been voiced in states with large numbers of rural, conservative voters like Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and others in the Midwest and South.
"She gets really high negatives among conservatives and the fundamentalist crowd," said Rice University political science professor Paul Brace. "In some states that is going to mobilize them so much so that they may overlook shortcomings of a Republican candidate."
Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, who has endorsed Obama, is one who has said a Clinton nomination would hurt Democrats. Others in the party agree.
"It is not fair," said Missouri State Auditor Susan Montee. "But the fact is ... she is actually a lightning rod. She will bring people out to vote against her."
Oh, this will be wonderful. How the Left will whine and cry when their darling, Hillary Clinton, goes down to defeat in November and the Republicans win the White House again.

The Left in the United States, which wants to force every American to have to pay for nationalized and socialized health care on par with Canada and the UK (and we all know how well that is working out), doesn't want the following to slip out as the key component of how they will institute their plan:
If you don't want it, the government will just take your money and you can go fuck yourself if you don't like it.
Of course, if you don't believe us, check out the latest from Hillary Clinton, who let this small detail slip out in an interview with ABC News' "This Week."
If a Republican had said something as nefarious as this, every network - even Fox - would carry it. Let's see how many carry what Hillary Clinton said. Or how many mention it in passing.
Clinton health plan may mean tapping pay
WASHINGTON - Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday she might be willing to garnish the wages of workers who refuse to buy health insurance to achieve coverage for all Americans.
The New York senator has criticized presidential rival Barack Obama for pushing a health plan that would not require universal coverage. Clinton has not always specified the enforcement measures she would embrace, but when pressed on ABC's "This Week," she said: "I think there are a number of mechanisms" that are possible, including "going after people's wages, automatic enrollment."
Clinton said such measures would apply only to workers who can afford health coverage but refuse to buy it, which puts undue pressure on hospitals and emergency rooms. With her proposals for subsidies, she said, "it will be affordable for everyone."
Wow! "Automatic enrollment." This means, folks, that when HillaryCare wants your money and you don't want to participate, the HillaryCorps Brownshirts will simply seize your money and tell you to fuck off.
Hillary Clinton: She still thinks bullying people is the way government works. Then again, this is what the Left believes is their way of taking over America.
