It's Official: Bush Admin Saw Iraq As Religious War
Huffington Post - 5-19-09
Little did I know that while I was preparing to go to Iraq, the Bush administration was using Bible passages on cover sheets of security reports, emblazoned on top of pictures of our armed forces. The implication was clear - this was a religious war, and our troops were fighting for the God of the Bible.

I still can't figure out why Jesus was Bush's favorite political philosopher, they're such complete opposites.



"In a reversal of his position, President Obama this week said he now opposes the release of photographs showing terror suspects being abused in Afghanistan and Iraq. Meaning we'll just have to wait for Dick Cheney's Christmas card." --Amy Poehler

"Torture. That is the story that just will not go away in this country, and now with Nancy Pelosi in the middle of it. Yes, Republicans keep changing their story on torture. First it was, 'We didn't torture.' Then it was, 'Okay we tortured, but it worked.' And now it's, 'Nancy Pelosi said we could! She said it was okay!'" --Bill Maher

Wow. Holding People Accountable?


TO paraphrase Al Pacino in “Godfather III,” just when we thought we were out, the Bush mob keeps pulling us back in. And will keep doing so. No matter how hard President Obama tries to turn the page on the previous administration, he can’t. Until there is true transparency and true accountability, revelations of that unresolved eight-year nightmare will keep raining down drip by drip, disrupting the new administration’s high ambitions.




“Cheney, who had five deferments himself to get out of going to Vietnam, would rather follow a blowhard entertainer who has had three divorces and a drug problem (who also avoided Vietnam) than a four-star general who spent his life serving his country.” - Maureen Dowd, NYTimes columnist/plagaririst



Disturbing News


"Newt Gingrich yesterday was all over TV. He called Nancy Pelosi a 'trivial politician.' Pretty strong words from a guy who goes on CNN just to swipe food from the green room. A 'trivial politician,' as opposed to Newt himself, who is a very serious, unemployed fat guy who runs a think tank out of his basement." --Bill Maher



Subject: Nancy Pelosi



I think people are missing the main issue with Pelosi. As a Fed with a security clearance, I think I can speak with some credibility.
For conversation purposes let's say she knew everything. All she could do is write a classified letter like Jane Hartmann did! Anything else and she would have violated her security agreement and could be prosecuted for making public classified information.
The the real issue is that Boehner is stating that intelligence officials have "told him" that Pelosi was briefed and what information was briefed. That information should be available on a need to know basis. What is "the bronzed man's" need to know? Who are these people, they have violated their security agreements?
Why is the press corps not asking these questions.
As a member of Congress he should identify these people who have leaked/violated security agreements, since he has admitted that the CIA has has a security breach on network news shows.

Just my thoughts about Monday's edition, keep up the good work.



Thanks for writing, T.


I think this Pelosi situation is one that has become too convoluted -- due to all the GOP squawking and Pelosi herself.


The press corps should investigate where Boehner got his information from but will they? Maybe a few die hard reporters will. I think there are a few of them left, somewhere.


Pelosi is being treated by the GOP the same way Valerie Plame was. Traitors calling the victim a traitor. Typical GOP strategy. Accuse your enemy of your sins.


I was shocked, I tell you shocked when I saw this GOP Cuban hack, Alejandro "Alex" Castellanos say “if Speaker Pelosi were still capable of human facial expression, we’d see she’d be embarrassed, because, right now, she is in a very Nixon-like position.”  So Alex not only insults Nancy's face but calls her a Republican to boot! Boy, talk about having it both ways.


Here's a great synopsis of the GOP misogyny machine - Yet again, media figures respond to a Pelosi controversy with attacks on her looks


I hope this ends soon, for Pelosi's sake, otherwise the GOP is going to continue to grind her up and spit her out.


Even comedians are making fun  of her looks


"They say Nancy Pelosi was aware, as far back as 2003 that we tortured and didn't raise any questions about it. Which raises the big question: what did Nancy Pelosi know, and when was she going to tell her face?" --Bill Maher


I guess I'd rather people make fun of my Botoxed face instead of my wrinkles!




Ode to Mike “The Poet” Huckabee
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Huck, you’ve no rhythm or rhyme,
And your verse about Nancy’s a crime.
Your ditty ain’t witty.
Your talent is bitty.
Your poetry’s awful. Try mime.

The Shiftless No Accounts


FBI Director Robert Mueller and former Attorney General John Ashcroft cannot be sued by a former Sept. 11 detainee who claimed he was abused because of his religion and ethnicity, a sharply divided Supreme Court said Monday in a decision that could make it harder to sue top officials for the actions of low-level operatives.

"Our governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, wants to 'legalize the marijuana.' He says that taxes on it will help raise money to balance the budget. Now, see, this can go one of two ways. Either California raises some revenue and balanced the budget, or California still goes broke, but everybody is too stoned to care. So, you see, it is a win-win, really." --Jay Leno


Sarah Palin: Crack Ho


Gov. Sarah Palin does not take kindly to being called a crack ho.

The Alaska governor's office has issued a cease and desist order to the owner of crackho.com, a URL that was set up to redirect to Palin's official Web site.

Palin and Hillary? No Wonder It Didn't Work Out


In an unusual attempt to forge an alliance between two of the most prominent families in American politics, John Coale, a Washington-area Democratic donor and onetime adviser to Sarah Palin, urged the conservative Alaska governor to use her political action committee to help retire the presidential campaign debt of Hillary Clinton.



"Donald Trump announced Tuesday that despite the controversy over Miss California Carrie Prejean's stand on gay marriage and racy pre-pageant photos, she will keep her crown. Hmm. Who would have ever imagined Donald Trump would side with the hot lady who likes to take her top off?" --Amy Poehler

CIA Can't Do Their Job And Not Break The Law -- I Guess That's What This Means


Battered by recriminations over waterboarding and other harsh techniques sanctioned by the Bush administration, the CIA is girding itself for more public scrutiny and is questioning whether agency personnel can conduct interrogations effectively under rules set out for the U.S. military, according to senior intelligence officials.

Harsh interrogations were only one part of its clandestine activities against al-Qaeda and other enemies, and agency members are worried that other operations in Afghanistan and Pakistan will come under review, the officials said.
