Obama website's opposition to successful surge gets deleted
Los Angeles Times - 7-16-08
A funny thing happened over on the Barack Obama campaign website in the last few days. The parts that stressed his opposition to the 2007 troop surge and his statement that more troops would make no difference in a civil war have somehow disappeared.


And California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said today he would be interested in serving as Barack Obama’s energy czar. At least, I think that’s what he said. He might have said, “Yeah, I would like to have an energy bar.”

Creeping Militarization


The U.S. military's growing role in rebuilding war-battered nations has fueled concerns about a "creeping militarization" of American foreign policy, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Tuesday.


For the second time in two days, John McCain has referred to current events in “Czechoslovakia” — a country that officially ceased to exist in 1993. Afterwards, McCain said, “The same thing happened the last time I went to Mesopotamia.” - Conan O'Brien

A Humorist’s Lament
Madeleine Begun Kane

A humorist like me sure knows
How tough it is to write, compose,
And sketch satiric toons and prose
And poems. It’s not without its woes.

For instance, Barry Blitt’s lampoon,
New Yorker’s well-intentioned toon,
Is meant to show as crass buffoon
The lie and bias-spreading goon.

The humor quand’ry, if you please:
This toon could fit with equal ease
In any right-wing, racist sleaze
And readily its readers please.

That’s why it draws this fit of pique
For spreading what it would critique,
Confirming to the knowledge-weak:
Barack Obama — Terr’ist Sheik!




perhaps the only way to survive another coronation is a little humor and satire. in the end after the balloons drop and the cheering stops and the lights go out, the extras get sent home. while the ruling class will go about their grotesque lavish lifestyles with our money, while we, (the wage slaves) more divided than ever (which pleases the rulers) are left to ponder, do we buy gas, or groceries?


It's a sad day when Democrats are more concerned about a cartoon than our sinking economy, two wars and the real enemy, John McCain. That's why we lose elections, we lose our focus and obviously our sense of humor.




War On Drugs


Coalition warships seized 30 tons of narcotics over the past five months on Gulf patrols, cutting off possible funds for insurgents in Afghanistan, the U.S. Navy said in a statement Tuesday.


President Bush spoke about the economy today. Did you hear what President Bush said today? He said, “I am not an economist.” Not an economist? He’s barely even a president.- Jay Leno







Republican-Shenanigans News


Today, President Bush lifted the presidential ban on offshore drilling that was imposed by his father, the first President Bush, 18 years ago. But hey, remember Bush’s dad also said invading Iraq would be a huge disaster, and cutting taxes would ruin the economy. So what the hell did he know? - Jay Leno





Bush Liberry Update


Faced Monday with a report that a rogue lobbyist urged an exiled Central Asian leader to support the Bush library to curry favor in Washington, library officials promised that no foreign money will be accepted until President Bush leaves office. On Tuesday, it became clear the public will have to take them at their word.

The foundation isn't promising to identify all donors, or the dates and sums of their gifts.

Impeachment Redo


 Rep. Dennis Kucinich's single impeachment article will get a committee hearing — but not on removing President Bush from office.

The House on Tuesday voted 238-180 to send his article of impeachment — for Bush's reasoning for taking the country to war in Iraq — to the Judiciary Committee, which buried Kucinich's previous effort.

Bill Nye poses on the roof with his solar water heating panel, foreground, and solar electric panels, background, at his home in the Studio City district of Los Angeles Wednesday, May 14, 2008. Nye, the host of the educational series 'Bill Nye, The Science Guy,' and his neighbor actor Ed Begley are locked in a friendly but serious eco-battle of keeping up with each other. The two moderately famous and occasionally geeky environmentalists vie to see who can leave the smaller carbon footprint.
