Because face it.
I'm right, and you're wrong.

Republican congressman Ed Schock is one of the most conservative congressmen in the house. He has a 92% approval rating from the Christian coalition. He cosposnsered the bill making discrimination against gays part of our constitution. Being a former Navy man for 24 years, he was an adamant opponent of the don’t ask don’t tell policy. ''You're in the showers with them, you're in the bunk room with them, you're in staterooms with them,'' Schrock said.

Last night, Schrock announced his resignation from the house, effective immediately. He cited unspecified allegations against him.

Well, let me specify.

He’s gay. And a blog has tapes of him on gay phone chat lines.

Listen to them here.

Thank GOD.

Foghats on our side...

"I have no idea where they got that," Foghat drummer Roger Earl tells PAGE SIX. "Foghat are not supporters of George Bush, and we're certainly not going on the road with him." In fact, Earl seemed downright smitten with the John Kerry-favoring Springsteen tour. "I'd like to see Bruce Springsteen and Bonnie Raitt for president. We'd go on tour with them in a minute!" The Long Island resident also offered up Foghat's services to entertain the troops overseas. "We support the troops 110 percent," he said. "We'd love to go over there and play for them, but no one has asked us yet." ...

Liar Bill O'reilly on liar John O'Neill

"I know he wasn't there. So take it to the bank. You know me. I don't mislead anybody. He wasn't there."

Thats beyond parody.

Angie Harmon?!

The Angie F'in Harmon!

Angie "Agent Cody Banks " Harmon!


In addition to the Bush daughters, the Youth Convention will feature Republican Party elected officials and Hollywood celebrities. The lineup of speakers to appear during the hour and a half long program includes the Honorable Andy Card, the Honorable Rod Paige, Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie, former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, Congressman David Dreier (R-CA), actress Angie Harmon, NFL Cornerback Jason Sehorn, syndicated youth radio host Ben Ferguson, Bush-Cheney '04 Deputy Strategist Sara Taylor, WWE superstar JBL, "Stand Up and Holla!" winner Princella Smith and Michael Mack, Chairman of the Young Republicans.

I learn to love cock.

Pool reports are funny.

Basically they are the daily pool reports by the reporters who are following the candidates on the road. And since candidates campaigning on the road is the most boring thing ever (canddiate shook this hand, then bought corn, then took picture...), the pool reports are just funny. Wonkette reprints the best ones.

Like from Washington post reporter Jim VandeHei:
"Kerry insisted on going to the cattle barn, a massive, smelly barn full of cows witha huge no smoking sign hanging from the rafters. Apparently they don't want to stink the place up. "

"He then posed for a picture with two young girls as a cow took a big dump two feet away. then he left."

Or this older one from when K/E went to the Wendy's after the convention as a Edwards anniversary tradition:
"With guests of this magnitude, the manager himself took the order. "Here or to go?" he said. JE and EE each had a single burger with cheese, fries and a diet coke. They got one Frosty to share between them. Awwww. "

"Affleck caused a stir when he stepped outside of the restaurant. New Yorkers are not shy. "Hey Ben," someone shouted. "Let's go Yankees!" There were some catcalls about his failed relationship with J.Lo and also Gigli, said to be the worst movie ever made."

personally I want to see Ron take over pool reporting for Bush..

George Bush's medals.

I'm too tired and hung over to think of the right joke here.

Tuesday, August 24, 2004


We're screwed.

Bushies say that several performers, including [Lee Ann] Womack, Randy Travis, and even 1970s rock band Foghat have offered to tour to offset Bruce Springsteen 's pro-Kerry tour with fellow performers Jackson Browne, Pearl Jam, Bonnie Raitt, R.E.M., and others.

I think Matthews has been shining Bushs boots for years now, but this is awesome. Right wing asswipe Michele Malkin (the Asian American who just wrote a book entitled "In Defense of Internment") actually suggests that John Kerry shot himself to get a medal. Once Matthews hears this, he literally reaches over and rips Michele Malkins heart out. My favorite "this isn't the kind of show for allegations like that".

When you venture out of freeper land Michelle, prepare to get properly bitchslapped.

Ahh the sound of the twenty sided die rolling a +5 hit to magic resistant armor. It takes me back. Did I ever sound this pathetic? My head says no, but my heart says yes. Luckily I've put those days behind me and now concentrate on dorky computer games.

Happy Birthday Dungeons and Dragons. I sometimes miss you. But the call of Lady Vagina rolled a 20 with a +9 bonus to my penis.

To all the people who think Kerry is being a "flip flopper" or a hyopcrite, or stupid, for recently saying that knowing what he knows know he would still vote "for the war", heres how it is.

The vote was NOT a yes or no vote about going to war. The vote was giving the authority for Bush to go to war. The question is, did Bush use that authorty correctly, or did he, as John Kerry put it so succinctly then proceed to "fuck it up".

Kerry said that yes he still would vote to give him the authority. And on this he has been consistent. Here is what he said in the senate the day of the vote.

Let there be no doubt or confusion about where we stand on this. I will support a multilateral effort to disarm him by force, if we ever exhaust those other options, as the President has promised, but I will not support a unilateral U.S. war against Iraq unless that threat is imminent and the multilateral effort has not proven possible under any circumstances.
In voting to grant the President the authority, I am not giving him carte blanche to run roughshod over every country that poses or may pose some kind of potential threat to the United States. Every nation has the right to act preemptively, if it faces an imminent and grave threat, for its self-defense under the standards of law. The threat we face today with Iraq does not meet that test yet.
Congressional action on this resolution is not the end of our national debate on how best to disarm Iraq. Nor does it mean we have exhausted all of our peaceful options to achieve this goal. There is much more to be done. The administration must continue its efforts to build support at the United Nations for a new, unfettered, unconditional weapons inspection regime. If we can eliminate the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction through inspections, whenever, wherever, and however we want them, including in palaces--and I am highly skeptical, given the full record, given their past practices, that we can necessarily achieve that--then we have an obligation to try that as the first course of action before we expend American lives in any further effort.
In giving the President this authority, I expect him to fulfill the commitments he has made to the American people in recent days--to work with the United Nations Security Council to adopt a new resolution setting out tough and immediate inspection requirements, and to act with our allies at our side if we have to disarm Saddam Hussein by force. If he fails to do so, I will be among the first to speak out.

So. Kerry maintains that the president needed to have the option of force on the table in getting the inspectors to do there job. Thats what the vote was about. It wasn't a "Yes invade Iraq now" "No, let the inspectors finish" choice.

The "ask the president" rallies. One of my favorites is the "I dont have a question I just have 3 thank you's". Also notice the Kerry Edwards clip they show allows anyone, including hecklers.

The transcripts are absolutly jawdropping.

Q Mr. President, you were a fighter pilot, and you were with the 147th Fighter Wing?
Q And flew a very dangerous aircraft, the Delta F102?
THE PRESIDENT: Right. And I'm still standing.
Q I want to thank you for serving our country. (Laughter.)
Q Thank you for serving.

And if John McCain still holds any lingering doubts that he is supporting a scumbag who stands by while people trash a hero's war record, like he did in 200, this will answer his question:
Q On behalf of Vietnam veterans -- and I served six tours over there -- we do support the President. I only have one concern, and that's on the Purple Heart, and that is, is that there are over 200,000 Vietnam vets that died from Agent Orange and were never -- no Purple Heart has ever been awarded to a Vietnam veteran because of Agent Orange because it's never been changed in the regulations. Yet, we've got a candidate for President out here with two self-inflicted scratches, and I take that as an insult. (Applause.)
THE PRESIDENT: Well, I appreciate that. Thank you. Thank you for your service. Six tours? Whew. That's a lot of tours.
Let's see, who've we got here? You got a question?

Notice he lets that vile statement stand without saying a word. In fact, he appreciates it.

Thats bringing honor and integrity ack to the White House all right.

He is a morally bankrupt human being.

This is why I will never run for Office. The internet remembers everything.

Co author of the swift boat veterans for “truth”, the Lying Kerry hate group, is an avowed Freeper. And Media Matters (who I lalready love because they make O”Reilly go insane on a daily basis) tracked down his posts. He is, in keeping with that site, a hate filled nutbag.

Some gems. Be warned, you may encounter spittle flying from your screen as you read these.

"Boy buggering in both Islam and Catholicism is okay with the Pope as long as it isn't reported by the liberal press"

"RAGHEADS are Boy-Bumpers as clearly as they are Women-Haters -- it all goes together"

Anybody ask why HELLary couldn't keep BJ Bill satisfied? Not lesbo or anything, is she?"

Isn't the Democratic Party the official SODOMIZER PROTECTION ASSOCIATION of AMERICA -- oh, I forgot, it was just an accident that Clintoon's first act in office was to promote "gays in the military." RAGHEADS are Boy-Bumpers as clearly as they are Women-Haters -- it all goes together.

According to Talk Magazine, Chubby Chelsea had a very great adventure on 9/11 in NYC and Hell-ary had the details wrong -- oh, it was terrible.

A new wrinkle in scumbag Alexander from Louisiana. Apparently Lousiana has a law in place that says his second filing done 20 minutes before the deadline, is considered a withdrawal of his candidacy because legally once he initially qualifies he is not allowed to change his ballot in any way. And since he waited until the last minute in order to keep the democrats from picking somone else to run, making him unopposed, he inadvertantly may have screwed himself with his own tactics.

I got no problem with someone switching parties, but when you wait until the last minute for the expres purpose of ensuring that no one will run agaisnt you, that’s dirty and low.

I hope he gets what he deserves.

Sleazeball of the year candidate.

Democratic Congressman Rodney Alexander who is up for re-election, waited until 15 minutes before the deadline for registration for the ballot and then decided that he is going to be a Republican. After campaigning for months as the democratic frontrunner with the DNC funding him, campaign donations in the thousands, support from Democratic senators.
Of course by waiting until the very last second, he assured that he will run virtually unopposed, since the Democrats did the silly thing of thinking he had integrity and would be their candidate. And now the RNC is backing him all teh way, and pressuring the original frontrunner, to bow out of the race.

His entire staff, which does have integrity, all quit inprotest the second they found out.

What a real scumbag.

“Had I been reading to children and had my top aide whisper in my ear that America is under attack, I would have told those kids very nicely and politely that the president of the United States has something that he needs to attend to,” Kerry said.

Hells yeah.

I love you Queen Amidala.

Reason number 4,345 why everyone should get a TIVO.

TIVO is god.

The Onion always delivers. Here's their article on Bush's Blog.

Tuesday, August 03, 2004

In keeping with the “lie about everything” motto of this administration, here is the totally off the cuff, in their own words online chat with the Bush daughters. Just because they like, sound totally like a 45 year old speechwriter instead of, like, 21 year old lushes, is like, totally coincidental and stuff.

"As young voters, we definitely understand the many important issues to people our age. We have spoken with many Students for Bush and Young Republicans and have encouraged them to talk with their friends and make sure they and their friends are registered to vote,"

"We understand that young people are already very busy with schoolwork, friends, athletics, and hanging out, but ... participating in elections is one of the most important and easiest ways we can positively change our future."

"Like most kids, we do not agree with our parents on every single issue," they wrote. "Our parents ... have never discouraged us from believing in things that they do not necessarily agree with. One opinion that we do share is that our father is the perfect person to be the president of the United States."
