Never fear, our former Preznit is still servin’ up steamin’ heaps o’ that deeelicious freedom!
LONDON, March 30, 2009 – Ground Zero for the so-called
‘war on terror’ is a nation where gays and lesbians live in real terror
every day. Among the suffering of gay Iraqis is the regular threat (and
carrying out) of rape and murder. In July, CNN reported on the case of a young gay man abducted for ransom and raped daily for more than two weeks.
Eric Holder better get his ass in gear if he wants a crack at everyone’s favorite war criminals:
— A Spanish court has agreed to consider opening a criminal case
against six former Bush administration officials, including former
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, over allegations they gave legal
cover for torture at Guantanamo Bay, a lawyer in the case said Saturday.
Human rights lawyers brought the case before leading anti-terror
judge Baltasar Garzon, who agreed to send it on to prosecutors to
decide whether it had merit, Gonzalo Boye, one of the lawyers who
brought the charges, told The Associated Press.
Gonzo can’t get a job, so maybe he could do some jailhouse lawyering once he gets to The Hague.
From one of my favorite stops in Wingnuttia - Clown Hall:
Take Michelle Obama…please. Every time I turn around,
there she is on a magazine cover. Now, normally, like the Mafia, I lay
off the spouses, but inasmuch as this particular spouse attended the
same racist church as her hubby for 20 years, I’ll make an exception in
her case. After all, in spite of the fact that affirmative action got
her an Ivy League degree and a $7,000-a-week salary and, moreover, has
sent billions of dollars for no particularly good reason to Africa, she
insists this is a mean country. The burning question in my
circle is: if the First Family gets a female dog, will she be the First
Bitch or will she have to settle for second place?
Wow - you’d think all those professional Christians over at Town
Hall wouldn’t call people names. Would Jesus use language like that?
Naturally, the left-wing media is now trying to convince
us that this James Brown-look-alike has all the allure, glamour and
fashion sense of Jackie Kennedy.
James Brown? Huh?
Shorter Burt Prelutsky: You black kids get off my lawn!
Bush joked that he’d need more such engagements to pay for the house his wife, Laura, bought without him seeing it. “I actually paid for a house last fall,” he told the crowd. “I think I’m the only American to have bought a house in the fall of 2008.”
Writing about the spat with [Laura] Ingraham on her
Daily Beast blog this weekend, [Meghan] McCain wrote that “instead of
intellectually debating our ideological differences about the future of
the Republican Party, Ingraham resorted to making fun of my age and
weight.” “At this point, I have more respect for Ann Coulter than I do for Laura Ingraham because at least Coulter didn’t come back at me with heartless, substance-less attacks about my weight,” wrote McCain.
Ingraham fired back while McCain was appearing on The View.
President Obama lifted the restrictions on stem-cell research yesterday. But suppose Preznit Bunnypants hadn’t put them in place to begin with?
Sure, we know about the dead in Iraq - the people, the soldiers
- and we know about what happened in New Orleans. But how many people
would be alive today if Bush hadn’t put his religion before the rest of
us? How many people would be walking instead of in wheelchairs had
science not been hobbled for the past eight years? How many people
would be enjoying their lives instead of suffering? We’ll never know.
Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), whose career became mired in
the D.C. Madam prostitution scandal back in 2007, and is now headed
into his 2010 re-election campaign, is championing the cause of family values in the omnibus bill, and the need to stop government spending on family planning. Really.
A man held a woman captive in handcuffs and an adult
nappy for three days while he read Bible passages to her in the US
state of Ohio, police said.
Troy Brisport, 34, picked up the woman last Wednesday night in
Detroit after she told him she had nowhere to stay, and brought her to
his home in Toledo, about 90 kilometres away, police told The Toledo
In a telephone interview Thursday from Tampa,
Fla., Daniels said that while [Larry] Flynt had nothing to do with the
“Draft Stormy” boomlet that has drawn her into contemplating the 2010
Louisiana Senate race, “I have reached out to him in the last couple of
days that I want to discuss if he wants to be my campaign manager.”
Can you imagine the possibilities? Can you imagine the embarrassment? Vitter. I want his head on a PIKE!
A Supreme Court decision apparently isn't enough for Tennessee lawmakers in the House. Despite the fact that the Court rejected an effort to contest President Barack Obama's citizenship in a case earlier this year, four Tennessee lawmakers are still pushing a legal action to force the president to turn over his birth certificate and other documents to prove his citizenship.
I'd always assumed that Oklahoma's congressional delegation was the stupidest - after all, it includes Senator Inhofe. Now I'm not so sure.
The American Civil Liberties Union has released
previously classified excerpts of a government report on harsh
interrogation techniques used in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay.
These previously unreported pages detail repeated use of “abusive”
behavior, even to the point of prisoner deaths.
The documents, obtained by the ACLU under a Freedom of Information
Act request, contain a report by Vice Admiral Albert T. Church, who was
tapped to conduct a comprehensive review of Defense Department
interrogation operations. Church specifically calls out interrogations
at Bagram Air base in Afghanistan as “clearly abusive, and clearly not
in keeping with any approved interrogation policy or guidance.”
I know this is what we all surmised, but to see it in print ….
Vitter Reelection Hopes Sag as Daniels Comes on Strong
NEW ORLEANS, LA.- February 10, 2009 – Today, in an online poll
conducted by the Baton Rouge Business Report, potential candidate for
senate Stormy Daniels surged to a strong second place finish against
incumbent Louisiana Junior Senator David Vitter. The final numbers were Senator Vitter 39%, Stormy Daniels 32%, and Baton Rouge businessman Jim Bernhard 28%.
Even more surprising than the early strength showed by Daniels were
the anemic numbers of the incumbent, embattled Louisiana Junior Senator
David Vitter , who polled under 40%. Zach Hudson, a spokesman for
DraftStormy, said he is encouraged by the numbers.
We thought we had momentum last week, but looking back
now, we could never have foreseen the excitement that our campaign to
Draft Stormy Daniels would generate!
As we near 150,000 visits to DraftStormy.com,
we continue to be amazed at the outpouring of support from individuals
united behind a message of honesty, passion and strength of character.
Make sure you are kept up to date on our campaign’s efforts by joining
the DraftStormy Facebook group and subscribing to the DraftStormy YouTube channel.
Stinquers, we need to help this woman any way we can.
Not only was Ted Haggard a busier perv than we thought, he’s not the only perv at his “church”. Signorile:
A Colorado Springs bail bondsman and sometime bounty hunter who has been investigating New Life Church and Ted Haggard for several years appeared on my show
late on Friday and told me that he now has information on ten more
cases of sexual misconduct on the part of Ted Haggard and that three of
these involve minors. He also said that New Life Church had suppressed
from the media an earlier case of a pastor at the church (which has many pastors
under the senior pastor) who was convicted of sexual assault against a
child under the age of 15 and got off easy with help from the church,
only to later have his probation revoked. The convicted pastor then
illegally left the country, he said, and he speculates that New Life
Church may have helped him do so.
Washington DC— Against the backdrop of the annual Washington Mardis Gras, DraftStormy, a non-partisan grassroots movement to draft Baton Rouge native Stormy Daniels into the 2010 Louisiana Senate race, celebrated its official launch on Thursday. To commemorate the launch, DC Mardis Gras attendees were greeted Thursday morning with a complimentary string of Mardis Gras beads featuring the soon-to-be iconic DraftStormy logo in metallic pink on a white medallion. Hours before, the official DraftStormy website went live.
This weekend, not only do we get to watch what should be a good football game, we get to enjoy the demise of Pajamas Media. Via Instaputz:
And so it ends. Pajamas Media, a laughingstock even in the embryonic stage, is no more. Putz, one of the founders, is already attempting to distance himself from the operation, despite spending more than three years driving most its traffic:
I don’t have much to do with the PJM business side...
Today, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 16-1 to approve President-elect Obama’s nomination of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Casting the sole “nay” vote was Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), who was concerned about Bill Clinton’s “multimillion dollar minefield of conflicts of interest.” Vitter has long been a Clinton foe, calling on President Clinton to step down in 1998 because of his affair with Monica Lewinsky. In 2007, Vitter also revealed that he had been a client of the D.C. Madam’s escort service, but refused to resign.
Actually, this post is simply an excuse to post what might be the best YouTube video ever: You're welcome.
As a lefty blogger, I will miss him. Sure he’s a dangerous
sociopath, a pathological liar, and a national embarrassment. But he’s
also The Decider, The Commander Guy, and Commander Codpiece. Think about that as January 20, 2009 approaches. When, I ask you, have liberals had it so good?
Maythem al-Zaidi contacted a judge to ask him if what his brother [Muntader] did is a crime under Iraqi law. The judge told him that he might serve two years in prison or pay a fine for insulting a president of foreign country unless Mr. Bush withdrew the case. “If they manage to imprison Muntader, there are millions of him all over Iraq and the Arab world,” Maythem al-Zaidi said.
Anyone who expects clemency from the Commander Guy should recall his remarks about Karla Faye Tucker.
