Let's check our notes...who was it put things off for a while? Oh, yeah, Arlen Specter*

"It appears that partisan stalling tactics have triumphed over a fair and timely confirmation process."
President Tony Perkins (**
Fascist Resluglicon Crybabies)
Washington, D.C. - Today, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman *Arlen Specter (R-PA) announced that hearings on the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito would be delayed until Monday, January 9
. Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins released the following statement:
"We are at a loss to understand why stalling tactics have been employed against Judge Alito's nomination. This does not reflect President Bush's expressed hopes for final confirmation by the end of the year.
"There is no reason for Judge Alito to wait 70 days to begin his confirmation hearings. Following 13 years as a federal judge, Justice Ginsburg was able to begin confirmation hearings 28 days following her nomination. Judge Alito with 15 years on the federal bench should receive the same due process. With many important Supreme Court cases pending, it is imperative that the Senate reconsider its schedule for confirmation hearings. It appears that partisan stalling tactics have triumphed over a fair and timely confirmation process."
We have to repay Iraq for what they "misspent" to Halliburton.
The Constitution wants to know.
The big, bad wolf--formerly known as journalism--is about to huff and puff, and blow Goerge's house of straw down.Excerpts.
Ever since the Democrats briefly closed the U.S. Senate from view earlier this week, to protest alleged Republican foot-dragging in probing Bush administration pre-war manipulation of intelligence, the press has been asking: So what new evidence do the Democrats have in this matter?
Tomorrow, in its print edition, The New York Times starts to answer the question, with reporter Douglas Jehl disclosing the contents of a newly declassified memo apparently passed to him by Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, the top Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
It shows that an al-Qaeda official held by the Americans was identified as a likely fabricator months before the Bush administration began to use his statements as the basis for its claims that Iraq trained al-Qaeda members to use biological and chemical weapons, according to this Defense Intelligence Agency document from February 2002.
It declared that it was probable that the prisoner, Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi, "was intentionally misleading the debriefers" in making claims about Iraqi support for al-Qaeda's work with illicit weapons, Jehl reports.
“The document provides the earliest and strongest indication of doubts voiced by American intelligence agencies about Mr. Libi's credibility,” Jehl writes. “Without mentioning him by name, President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Colin L. Powell, then secretary of state, and other administration officials repeatedly cited Mr. Libi's information as ‘credible’ evidence that Iraq was training Al Qaeda members in the use of explosives and illicit weapons.
“Among the first and most prominent assertions was one by Mr. Bush, who said in a major speech in Cincinnati in October 2002 that ‘we've learned that Iraq has trained Al Qaeda members in bomb making and poisons and gases.’”
A White House spokeswoman said she had no immediate comment on the D.I.A. report, according to the Times.Much, much more.
Now when they get rid of women and queers, too, we'll be ready to rule the world as God wants us to.
He...they...I'm sorry, I'm laughing too hard to type...he's kidding, right? The biggest criminal in American history
, and leader of the biggest and most costly crime wave in American history
, is sending his button men to ethics school? They're going to take "refresher courses" from White House council? On what, how to get away with stealing even more money and rigging even more elections? Oops, I just snorted some iced tea out of my nose. Wait, this is a sketch from SNL, isn't it? Tina Few wrote this. Or was it Al Franken? Is Chevy Chase writing for them again? SNL, not the White House...
Former NPR fascist Tomlinson
is...wait for it
...under investigation for scamming tax money. Well, he is a Goerge appointee and a resluglicon, so what did we expect?
Guess who else is involved? One, two three...Karl Rove
. (Is he going to...snicker
...ethics school, too?)
What if we took charge of the conversation about faith and politics?
Fascist bastards tried to prevent at least 140 people from voting.
This is the work of the "Integrity Project," proving once again that whatever they say
--or call themselves--the opposite is the truth.
At least he isn't queer and doesn't eat babies.Well, with someone like Goerge as our moral leader...
What's the big deal? Resluglicons are supposed to steal.
That's what they do.
And in Cal-ee-for-nee-yah, for Pete's sake.
I argue he never had one. In his life.Excerpts.
How can people who claim to be voting on religious and moral values vote for a man who . . ."
*He supports the death penalty. He claims to be humble and ask for God's guidance, yet seemingly refuses to admit his infallibility or take advice from those who might have helped him avoid dragging us into an unjust war.
*He reversed the civilized world's abhorrence of preemptive war. He sold Americans a war based on lies. He willingly started an unnecessary war that has resulted in the deaths of (now more than 2,000) American soldiers and tens of thousands of Iraqis.
*He, at least tacitly, condones torture. (Guantanamo Bay. Abu Ghraib. And, we learned earlier this week, perhaps a number of secret CIA-run locations in Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia and elsewhere.) He ignores the human race's responsibility for preserving the Earth and its creatures.
*He is against stem cell research. He accuses dissenters of degrading the U.S. troops but does not push to fully fund Veterans Administration hospitals or health insurance for veterans. And he allowed the automatic assault weapons ban to lapse.
"How are these things reflective of a man with strong 'morals?' " Amanda asked. "How does 'morals' get to be defined as the things the right wants it to be? . . . Why isn't being anti-death penalty a moral issue? Why isn't being anti-war a moral issue? Why isn't being supportive of civil unions so that gay couples can, for example, obtain health insurance for each other and their children a moral issue?
Ah, yes, the early 1950s truly were "idyllic" for people like him. Commie witch hunts, housewives in starched petticoats, segregated lunch counters, restrooms and drinking fountains, lynchings...
If he wants to talk about the good, old days, how about my
high school years, the 1960s? Back then, education and educated people were revered, especially scientists. Hell, we went to the dadgum moon!
But that was before we realized, thanks to people like Dobson, that education is unnecessry, and science is anti-God.
If he lied, which we all now know he did.
On with the show! Fire up the tar and feathers.
At least that's what the White House website still says.
What's he been
doing since getting the job?
They now fully understand he'll screw up everything he touches.
Tell me again who supports the troops?
Unless they bow to Goerge.Before it was Veterans Day it was Armistice Day.
It marked the end of World War I. It marked the return to peace. Now it inexplicably celebrates a war based on lies. How is that "supporting the troops?" (Yes, I'm a veteran. No, I don't go to those parades. Never have, never will.)
And that's just what his colleagues say about him.Fascists like Alito care nothing for the law
or the Constitution, save for when they can distort it to their own nefarious purposes. They only care about fascist ideology. They mean to turn our country into a feudal theocracy.
Pay attention, and you'll see I'm right.
"The rest believe Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to church."
Aw, go ahead. They can't threaten us, either.That leaves only Cuba, Iran and Syria to invade.
And many vehicles still
lack proper armor protection against them.
When will somebody hold him accountable for his war lies?
What librulmedia? Where? Show me one.
There still are a few legit news outlets not yet absorbed into the worthlesscorporatemedia. But not for much longer.
Has that wretched place seceded again yet?
Only resluglicon-biased political statements are valid now in the land of the Big Brother and home of the unelected, fascist president.
Plaintiff says "ministry" is "government-based conversion program." We shouldn't be surprised that a scalawag like Colson got caught. We should be surprised it took so long.
And for "the faithful" to pay attention to, you know, actual science.
I just got an email from Galileo. He says, "Better 400 years late than never."
Fascist propagandist Tomlinson quits. Good riddance. But know another one just like him is waiting in the wings.
it was for travel expenses. But does it cost $14,000 for one man to fly from Texas to D. C., and back again?
Take a peek at this guy's blog. He's interesting and thought-provoking both in content and style. He also has excellent taste in other people's blogs:)
ATLANTA - A woman accused of helping her husband kill their 8-year-old to rid her of a demon pleaded guilty to murder Tuesday.
Valerie Carey, 29, was sentenced to life in prison for the Jan. 19, 2004, stabbing and strangling of Quimani Carey at a downtown Atlanta motel.
Carey and her husband, Christopher, were found walking down busy Piedmont Avenue naked in freezing temperatures with their two other children, then 6 and 2, on their shoulders.
Police discovered Quimani on the floor of their motel room. Pages ripped from the Bible were thrown on and around her body, and her arms were broken.
Prosecutors said Christopher Carey had stabbed her with a knife until it broke, while she tried to fight back.
Valerie Carey held the girl while her husband broke her arms, and then she strangled Quimani.
Valerie Carey believed that her family would be transported to a planet inhabited by red dragons after Quimani was killed, and spread out her arms waiting to fly off, according to one of her attorneys, Susan Wardell.
It's what happened to that Padilla guy. What makes you think you're safe?
Well, 11 of them anyway.
ristains pray, God answers them on their cellphones. So if God doesn't call you back, He wants you to burn in hell. (No word yet about what those of us without cellphones are supposed to do. Wait...is this a ploy by Verizon and T-Mobile to sell those little phones?)
Isn't their parallel fantasy universe more like a comic book than Revelations? (Is Oscar-winner Gossett this desperate for money?)
Yes, Jesus did invent librulism.
by Rev. Erik J. Thorson
I am a Lutheran Pastor who, two years ago, resigned from the first two churches I served in rural Montana after half a year of arguing about the Iraq War. I preached fiercely against it both before and after the war broke out and helped lead a small but committed protest movement in Livingston, Montana.
What was encouraging at the time was seeing so many people who felt alienated from the church coming to our congregation. They were so happy they had found a church that saw that Jesus' values are in many ways compatible with and even identical to progressive values. You could even say that Jesus invented liberalism.
What was tragic was the low level of commitment on the part of these newcomers. After I left, they left as well, and once again abandoned the church to it's most ignorant and hard-hearted voices.
If you want to know why conservatives control America, look no further than the churches. The great secret of the American debate is that most people's political opinions don't get formed by Fox News or Rush Limbaugh- the worldview that is closest to the heart of most conservative Americans is formed on Sunday morning at worship, and at weekly Bible studies.
Fire-breathing, warmongering chickenhawks stay away in droves from FOX's show about grunts in Gulf War II.
Forty years ago, ABC's Combat!,
set during WWII, was hugely popular, and still is in syndication and now that it's finally on DVD. Nearly 20 years ago, CBS's Tour of Duty
, a worthy successor to/continuation of Combat!
set in Vietnam, was nearly as successful. But now FOX, part of the White House spokeschannel/lies/fascist propaganda/warmongering/bullshit network, can't even sell their Gulf War II show, Over There
, to people who demanded the damn war in the first place!
The new gubmnt of Iraq
doesn't seem to know they're supposed to be Goerge's puppets and bitches. They'll probably want to hang onto their oil now, too.
Food stamp cuts "on the table" to pay for Goerge's war.
Well, sacrifices must be made if all
tax revenues are to go to resluglicons and their friends where God wants them to go.
They also know how to manipulate the wackos
to the overwhelming detriment of the country.
Who would Jesus torture? Who did
Goergie, you're still doing a heckuva job.
Mary Cheney brought a "guest."How did the Secret Service allow these family-haters in?
Expert says humans shouldn't worry. Meanwhile, Goerge's friends--including Dumsfeld--are making zillions on the vaccine.
They should have included Cheney, too.
Remember when christian presidents actually were christians and actually elected?"White House fixed pre-war intel."
Clinton was 'way more popular when they trumped up that impeachment.The American people are once again (still?) sick of resluglicons and their penchant for crime.

It's catching on. These may be the flower grandchildren we've been waiting for.
And poor people can just be cold this winter.
Serves them right, like the hurricanes.
Why wouldn't the former president of the K
oalition want his minions to know he's a gambler's whore?
Hell, Goerge's dog is probably involved, too. They couldn't stand that someone would tell the public the truth about their war lies. So they punished Wilson by making his wife a target.
Yes, there have been threats on her life.
Ah, freedom under Goerge.
Yet the fascists and theofascists are giddy over him.
Majority support filibuster, Roe v. Wade. Now, that's the mainstream.
But that was before he became a fascist big-shot.
FEMA has done little. National Guard troops have done little. And somehow, it's the people's fault FEMA can't deliver water.
What he needs more is a conscience.
Who would Jesus torture?
Goerge is on record as saying Jesus is his favorite philosopher. Imagine how big an asshole he'd be if he looked up to Hitler or Stalin instead of Jesus.
They write "control" legislation about everything else, why not guns?
Molly has sensible--and doable--ideas. Does anyone else?
They're taking over everything, and it's because people don't stand up to them. STAND UP TO THEM! Or do you want them to turn our country into a feudal theocracy? We're halfway there now. You have to stand up and fight. You.
Nice dog-and-pony show, but we aren't distracted from Treasongate, the war or Scalito. We know who all those people really are.
CIA has set up exactly the same kind of underground prisons the KGB used to run. Aren't we all glad the K
ristians are in charge? Imagine how evil they'd be otherwise...
Or was it a conniption? Maybe both.
Now that the Dems have sprouted cojones
, encourage them to use them.
It's "extreme," too.
Who are these "mainstream"
people, anyway? The 61% who oppose literally everything Goerge thinks, says and does? The 55% who support pro-choice initiatives?The very word is unAmerican.
It assumes (a) there is a mainstream, and by definition (b) those in it are the only people who should be allowed to live here. Nothing is further from the core tenets of a democratic republic, or closer to the fascist tenets of those who would turn our country into a feudal theocracy.
Her reason? To...wait for it
...spend more time with her family. Aw, ain't that sweet?
Resluglicons agree to stop blocking inquiry into Goerge's war lies.
When will Democrats fight back against this fascism? When will they say publicly that kancervatism is pure evil?
White House press corps is politely rude to him because of his myriad lies on behalf of Goerge and the rest of the fascist criminals.
But thanks to the internets, you can still read it here.
This is what's up now. No mention of young Alito, the editor of the paper.
Unions are communists, communists are for peace, therefore unions are for peace, right? Only godless commies want peace. All good K
ristians want war all the time...for other people and their children to fight in.
Senate Dems have grown spines, balls, fangs and claws, have evolved from prey into predator, and are now standing upright in the open instead of cowering in the shadows.
Remember Cipro? Remember plastic sheeting and duct tape? Remember Halliburton?
This administration's right to deceive the public must be defended at any cost.
And those are people who believe Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to church.
Dems threaten filibuster. Or not. Fascists threaten "nucular option." Or not.
Maybe the movie JARHEAD will send young resluglicon chickenhawks and country music (sic) fans flocking to the recruiting offices in time for war with Iran, Syria and Cuba.
Get ready to feel a draft.
Except he'll call it a "nation-building exercise."
Remember when all the resluglicons lined up to tell Clinton he shouldn't do that in Bosnia and Kosovo?Iran, Syria, now Cuba
...where will all the soldiers come from? It sure won't be from the ranks of young resluglicon chickenhawks or Tobey Keith fans.
Big Election Theft In A Small Town.
LBJ told a pack of lies to get his war. Just like Goerge.
We've known this for a long time, but now they finally admit it publicly.
It's an amazing--and frightening--mythology which, by virtue of repetition, has become true. But, hey, it came from K
ristians, so it must be true.
It's just like making a jack-o-lantern.
Then He rewards them with chocolate rabbit eggs, and then--when they're old enough--camouflaged BDUs, MREs and thin-skinned Hummers.
And obstructor of justice.
His dad pulled strings to get him into the Army reserves to avoid the draft...just like Goerge's dad did.
It's amazing how many ways cancervatives have found to justify when assholes treat others like shit.
What gives them the right to rule the world...with taxpayer money and blood? Let them send their kids to fight, then we'll talk.
How can one group claim freedom of speech and of peaceable assembly for themselves and seek to deny those rights for everyone else? Easy: they're fascists who don't care about anyone but themselves.
I hope he doesn't get cold tonight waiting for the Great Pumpkin to show up.
Others who want GIs to keep dying for Goerge's lies were there, too. Why isn't 2016
a big enough number for them?
Which explains why it's such a debacle. Well, except for all the money Halliburton, Bechtel and Carlyle have made.
He thought the Iraqis really would welcome him with carpets of flowers, and let him steal their oil just like that.
I didn't realize they could get any more cynical. But they did. Rosa would have spat in his face.
Read what People for the American Way have dug up on him.
That would be Tom and Ray Maliozzi, of the incomparable "Car Talk."Their homepage
cartalk.comTheir quasi-annual Halloween party.
I'm still working on my opera about them, I MAGLIOZZI
. It's the story of two young Italian boys stolen by gypsies...and given back!
Alito should overjoy the theofascists, meaning the Dems will have to stand up to him. And them.
That's Tom and Ray Magliozzi of the incomparable "Car Talk."
Their quasi-annual Halloween party.

They take electric wires with them into the water.
"He's one of the reason s I came back to Baylor," adds Chad Overby. "He's one of the few pastors I've seen that wasn't afraid to deliver substantive, un-sugar-coated sermons. He showed me how to be an uninhibited Christian."
This is what's wrong with theofascists. They follow preachers who want people to feed their egos. That is not how Jesus did things.
For Halliburton, Bechtel and the Carlyle Group. For GIs and their families...not so much.
45% "Strongly Disapprove."There was no mandate for incompetence, criminal negligence, lying, stealing and committing treason.
Diebold, you're doing a heckuva job.
"Internet evangelist" is a very sick sexual predator.
How far have people gone into the parallel universe that they automatically trust anyone who says all the theofascist buzz words? I wouldn't buy a barbecue sandwich from someone who talked like that.
And if he doesn't, Goerge should make him resign.
Has accomplished virtually nothing since 9-11.
Two guys and one gal likely next fascists he'll nominate for SCOTUS.
Whoever it is, get ready to rumble.
Again hauls out cancervative flag with only nine stripes. New England states no longer matter to cancervatives.
That only Scooter is in the barrel doesn't mean others won't swing for other crimes. It ain't over yet by a long shot.
"And 1/3 think Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to church."
Tina Fay, finally
back on SNL
If you haven't done your homework on PNAC, get with it.
Wants to "hit reset button" on entire junta
in January. That means another war, more tax cuts.
But where do they go to church? Are they for turning America into a feudal theocracy, or are they for eating babies? That's all that matters, right?
Last-minute evidence gave Fitzgerald "pause."
