Harshing your mellow since 9/01

  1. I wonder if someone w/ LA connections can dig up that bastard’s name? It’s time to turn the racist blowtorch on HIM, and turn it way, WAY UP!

  2. Being Republican these days is like being a DC crack-whore; you poor, misguided, delusioned conservative wanna be’s need to be scared straight…

    …the “religion” of Bush needs to be denounced and vilified at every turn. The viper needs exposure. Satan is among us, in the guise of protective leader. If saving the world means 35 more people of color in the streets of sunny L.A., well, so be it.

    These are tough times that call for drastic measure.

    All praise to Jah for bringing us Jack Abramhoff, who will single-handedly tip the scales back toward peace, love, understanding and the persuit of happiness.

    …can I get an Amen?

  3. Apparently not, Z. Last I heard, it was Fitzmas gonna save y’all’s butts. Before that, you were all excited about Kerry. Before that, it was “no WMDs!” Before that…well, you get the idea. You Lefties keep pinning your hopes, deluded-religious-zealot fashion (“Satan is among us?” “All praise to Jah?”), on each and every new conspiracy theory that the ultra-Left America-hater flavor of the week schleps down the pike, and just like poor old Charlie Brown, the football keeps right on being yanked away from you.

    Meanwhile, the terrorists keep right on running to the flypaper in Iraq, where their bodies keep right on being stacked like cordwood, and our soldiers keep right on helping Iraqis build the first real democracy in Middle East history (other than Israel, that is — another democratic nation your side is utterly sickened by), and Democrats keep right on crying “quagmire” and showing us all just how seriously they take national security by trying to undermine every measure taken to reinforce it since 9/11.

    And now the Pelosi-ites say it is or ought to be illegal to listen in on al Qaeda conversations as they plot the next attack — and all while your side still refuses to even admit we’re in a war.

    Yeah, things are going pretty badly for us delusional Repubs, I gotta admit. Whatever you do, keep right on believing that, ‘kay?

  4. Yes yes…you big strong men. Please protect us all from the Arabs. Protect us from Mexican day-laborers, and save us before we all become Canadian! Oh, yeah…and protect us from anthrax…

    …does anybody remember anthrax? I remember my entire neighborhood being shut down and locked up for 6 hours on Christmas eve (was it 2 years ago? my how time flies!), because of some talcum powder on the sidewalk. Let’s be prudent…let’s be safe.

  5. Kos, as usual is on the money:

    The problem for principled conservatives (and I’m still not sure whether Tucker Carlson is one of them) is that they’ve lost representation in DC. The Republican Party isn’t mired in scandal, it IS the scandal — the system of bribery, kickbacks, and scams that fuel its massive money machine and influence peddling racket.

    It’s great business, no doubt. The numbers don’t lie. But it’s not good for America, and it clearly doesn’t represent honest conservative thinking.

    Ten years. That’s all it took for Republcians to go from outsider reformers to the most corrupt machine in recent history and perhaps ever (the historians can debate that point).

    That is what y’all are up against…being recognized as the biggest bunch of crooks and charlatains in US history.

  6. “Reality”-based: “That is what y’all are up against…being recognized as the biggest bunch of crooks and charlatains in US history.”


    The Clinton Legacy (from those arch-conservative wingnutz at the Progressive Review):

    Our Clinton Scandal Index

    • The only president ever impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance
    • Most number of convictions and guilty pleas by friends and associates*
    • Most number of cabinet officials to come under criminal investigation
    • Most number of witnesses to flee country or refuse to testify
    • Most number of witnesses to die suddenly
    • First president sued for sexual harassment.
    • First president accused of rape.
    • First first lady to come under criminal investigation
    • Largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case
    • First president to establish a legal defense fund.
    • First president to be held in contempt of court
    • Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions
    • Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad
    • First president disbarred from the US Supreme Court and a state court

    Thanks for playing, though.

  7. As you keep reminding me…we’ve got 3 years to go! I’m sure that Dubya will catch up to B.J. But that last one is a non-contest, given that Dubya isn’t a lawyer…but the “MBA President” has failed at two business attempts.

    “Between 2001 and 2004, Abramoff gave more than $127,000 to Republican candidates and committees and nothing to Democrats, federal records show.”

    There is a difference between accepting contributions from groups linked to Abramoff, which is legal and proper, and taking contributions in exchange for official actions, which is illegal, and which is at the heart of the ongoing investigations…which looks like it will bring down at least 6 GOP KongressKritters.

  8. There’s a lot of strange stuff involving Abramhoff, and Florida and gambling and drugs and such (clips and snips from numerous sources):

    “Mohamed Atta made a still-unexplained visit onboard one of Abramoff’s casino boats less than a week before the (9/11) attack.

    The man who owned the flight school favored by Atta and so many other terrorists had his Lear jet surrounded by DEA agents brandishing submachine guns on the runway of Orlando Executive Airport in July of 2000, the same month Atta began “training” at his flight school. They found 43 pounds of heroin onboard. For flight school owner Wally Hilliard, it was a ‘blemish,’ though not as yet one for which he has been asked to go to prison.

    Several of the principals in the Boulis hit also have heroin trafficking backgrounds. What a surprise. Most of the world’s heroin comes from Afghanistan, which used to be known as OsamaLand…

    Could it be that this network is the same one being probed so gingerly today by investigators looking into Jack Abramoff?

    Who owns Florida’s gambling boats? No one is certain. There is virtually no state or federal oversight (they sail in international waters). No one licenses the operators. No one ensures that the games aren’t rigged. No one ensures that the boats aren’t used to launder money. No one investigates whether organized crime is involved…yet.
    Things just get wigglier and wigglier…all this crim, corruption and intrique is better than a “Lethal Weapon” movie!

  9. Zorro: not a single Democrat…not one.


    Mike: Oh, and you might want to be careful how hard you sling that Abramoff mud around, too. Might splash back on ya.

    JM: Among those named by the NRSC as the worst examples of “Democrat hypocrisy” for taking money from Abramoff and his associates are: Sen. Byron Dorgan, (D-N.D.) who received at least $79,300; Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), who received at least $45,750; Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who received at least $68,941 and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), who received at least $6,250.

    Of course, you never have demonstrated that reading comprehension was your strong suit, Zorro.

    Say, what’s that on your face?

  10. Dorgan’s a red herring…he supported the Cost Share Indian School Construction Program in 2001, before Abramoff was on that scene…the money was not “arranged” by Abramoff

    repeat after me: There is a difference between accepting contributions from groups linked to Abramoff, which is legal and proper, and taking contributions in exchange for official actions, which is illegal.

    Then consult the list again.

  11. I really don’t have to do anything…the Repubs are doing it all themselves! Running in fright…returning money “bad” money…Hastert trying to explain himself…it’s a blast to watch!
