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

Gotta love that libreal media. HEres the headline on MSNBC:

Alabama Dem’s stance on Holocaust shocks party

Wow! Shocking huh? Then you read the article. He's a fringe nutcase who was a Libertarian until recently and is running 2nd in a primary race behind the leading Democratic candidate.

Whereas the Republican party has people like good ole Strom, Trent "If only segregationists won" Lott, in real and powerful positions within the party.

Tony Snow, who just made a lateral move from FOX news commentator to White House Press Secretary spent his first day in the job emailing news organizations complaining that they are being misleading and biased in their coverage. Yeah, I'm not making that up.

Among many charges leveled at Axelrod, Snow declared that “CBS News misleadingly reports that only 8 million seniors have signed up for Medicare prescription drug coverage. But 37 million seniors have coverage.”

Well Tony that’s two different things. Who ahs coverage and who is enrolled. But you already knew that didn’t you? So when Tony says that 37 million seniors "have coverage" A big chunk of that coverage has nothing to do with Medicare part D or whether they enrolled in it or not. In fact millions of seniors who "have coverage" (which Tony includes in his estimate) have prescription drug benefits equivalent to Medicare but do not receive money from Medicare.

Hasn’t even had a press conference yet and he’s already blatantly lying.

Evidence of the most inept Administration in our nations history example 1,456. Leave aside whether you are conservative moderate or a LIEberal. The real reason Bush is at 29% in a new WSJ poll is because his administration is simply inept at governing at every level. Even the hard-core nutcases are abandoning him at this point. We’re talking the “Clinton murdered Vince Foster” and “AID’s kills fags” bunch. Bush’s core constituency.

Take for example the CIA. Another area Bush has ruined with his mox of ineptiude, naked politics, cronyism, and utter corruption.

Porter Goss resigns abruptly. We then find out that his # 3 man, who also jsut resigned, is being criminally investigated. Soak that in. The third most powerful man in the Central Intelligence Adminstration is being criminally investigated. Now normally this would be, you know, kind of imprtant news. But at this point having an adminstration official indicted or investigated is so commonplace, it doesn't even register anymore. Bush could be caught raping puppies on the white house lawn with a SS uniform on and it would be on page B3, the style section of the Wapo, Arlen Specter would say he was "concerned” and consider opening an investigation, but then decide against it, FOX would talk about how teh puppies were probably Al Queda and then another white girl would go missing and we would all end up concentrating on that.

Worst. Adminstration. Ever.

Richard Cohen's take on Stephen Colbert:

First, let me state my credentials: I am a funny guy. This is well known in certain circles, which is why, even back in elementary school, I was sometimes asked by the teacher to "say something funny" -- as if the deed could be done on demand. This, anyway, is my standing for stating that Stephen Colbert was not funny at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. All the rest is commentary.

Case closed. You see, he said he's funny. Even his grade school teacher thought so for gods sake.

Also, I am smart guy. My mom even says so. So all those scientists that say global warming exists are just flat out wrong. I know because I am smart.

Mary Cheney, the openly gay political operative for her father Dick Cheney, is speaking out in a new book.

"John Kerry didn't 'out me', nor did he offend or attack me by calling me a lesbian," she remarked. "It wasn't a secret that I was gay, and I certainly couldn't be offended by the truth,'' she writes. ``What was offensive was that he was obviously trying to use me and my sexual orientation for his own political gain."

Yes of course. God forbid we should offend an openly gay woman who actively supports the most anti-gay Adminstration in our history. And we all know her father would never be as crass as to use someones situation for political gain.

You picked your sides Mary, don't bitch to us because you betrayed everything you believe in. Also, your dad is a lying sack of shit, and you know it.

THis part was also nice:
"Sitting in the studio audience when Edwards mentioned her sexual orientation, Cheney said she looked at the vice-presidential candidate and mouthed the words 'Go F* Yourself' a phrase her father had earlier employed against Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy," Canada.com adds.

Those Cheneys sure have some great family values. Now go jack off to your moms lesbian porn and shut the F up.

I love it when one of Bush's cronies is confronted with the truth. Rumsfeld looks stunned.
