Her 250% increase in federal taxes on tobacco disproportionately hurts the poor. Does she hate the poor? Was that a rhetorical question? (Yes and yes.)
annystate "No Compromise!" Pugosi loves highly regressive taxes on poor people because she hates them. (Poor people, not highly regressive taxes.)
How much would Regressive Nan's hateful tax hikes against the poor hurt them? According to the nonpartisan educational Tax Foundation,
the burden of the proposed cigarette tax hike on the lowest-earning 20 percent of households is 37 times heavier than it would be if the government raised the money with the federal income tax. Put another way, the proposed cigarette tax hike would hit the poor with the same force as cutting the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) by one-fourth....
Taxing only cigarettes to finance higher spending on SCHIP has absolutely no justification in sound tax policy. Excise taxes on cigarettes should be used to compensate for the costs they impose on society. Taxes levied above and beyond that point may be politically expedient because smokers are unpopular, but they only serve to make the federal tax system less principled and more regressive.
Since rich folks, whom Nanny Pelooni absolutely loves, don't smoke as much as poor folks, whom she absolutely hates, guess on whom she's trying to impose her higher taxes. No. Not rich folks, silly. She loves them. Remember? Poor folks are the ones she hates. So they must pay all her higher federal taxes. A fact they aren't ever likely to forget.
Instead of raising taxes on poor people you hate, Madam Despiser of the Disadvantaged, why don't you compromise and raise taxes on rich folks you love?
A federal excise tax of 61 cents on espresso coffees would force the rich to Pay Their Fair Share™. More importantly, it wouldn't hurt all those poor people you hate.
Pelooni Lied, Kids Died
Ninny Peloopi, a liar? Is that another rhetorical question? (Yes and yes:)
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, said [President] Bush didn't try to work with Democrats on the issue.
"He has not been receptive to that, nor has he made any overtures to us," [Nannystate] Pelosi said.
The House vote will go ahead as planned, she said. Some House Republicans asked for a delay because nine of their members are in California viewing damage from wildfires.
Everything Numbskully Pinheadsi said is an outright lie because President Bush clearly made overtures that show he was very receptive to trying to work with al-Qaedaqrats on the issue. In his statement on appropriations yesterday our president said,
After I vetoed their last SCHIP bill, I designated members of my administration to work with Congress to find common ground. Congressional leaders never met with them. Instead, the House [of Regressive-Tax Hikers] once again passed a bill that they knew would not become law. And incredibly enough, the Senate will take up the same bill next week, which wastes valuable time.
Of course, "wasting value time" is what Nincompoopy Pelazi's do-nothing Qongress does best.
Sneaker Peloseri would rather stubbornly refuse to back down, thus ensuring no bill For The Children® is ever passed, than even try to find any compromise that doesn't hurt the poor she so vehemently hates.
Your overly taxed dollars at work, Mr. & Mrs. America.
That itching was especially excruciating during Sunday night's Republican presidential debate, claims the [junior] senator from New York. So much, in fact, she has decided to file a multi-billion dollar lawsuit against each and every one of its participating candidates for "pain and suffering."
Mrs. Clinton plans to take all the money she hopes to raise from those lawsuits and use it to "pay for at least my least-expensive idea."
As for the remaining 999,999 "ideas," the [junior] senator plans to just raise [everyone's] taxes. "We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good," [Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, and] she said in [1847, 1888, and]2004[, respectively].
When reporters at a recent press conference reminded her of this quote, Mrs. Clintonchastised them for being "stuck in the past" and refusing to "move on.[org]" "I'm out here raising $1,000 and $2,000 maxed-out contributions from the poorest of the poor — dishwashers, waiters, and street stall hawkers — and all you people want to do is try to dig up old dirt [when you have tons and tons of all this new dirt you should get busy burying!]," she explained .
Another reporter at the same conference[, who obviously didn't care about his winding up less figuratively buried,] asked Mrs. Clinton about her attendance at, and apparent tacit approval of a speech by Suha Arafat, wife of the late Palestinian leader, which included accusations the U.S. was helping Israel use toxic gas and "chemical materials" to poison Palestinian women and children's air and water resources. After the speech, then first lady[Sieg]HillaryClinton went up to the lectern and kissed Mrs. Arafat. According to Mrs. Clinton , that embrace "held no more significance than a handshake." She added that the [highly educated and highly paid] official White House translator was "incompetent" and "didn't convey the correct meaning of (Mrs. Arafat's) words." In response to another question about her kiss[ing up to anti-Semites], the [junior] senator told reporters had she known what was "actually being said," she would've been "disgusted" and "most likely" would've "left the stage [quicker than an Arkansas jackrabbita f***ing Jew b***ard]" in protest.
That's so she can tell herself our subsidizing her richer voters' health insurance and pulling our Troops out of Iraq would all be "For The Children™."
dults treated like children by their own government. Middle class workers treated like poor ones in need of handouts.
Welcome to the upside-down, bribes-for-votes, bigger-government, loss-of-freedoms world of Democorruptic Party Nanny-Pelooni Statism. It's where the Dictatorats government will control take care of you if only you'll just consent to their its taking more of your money and power so they it can always do so in practically all matters affecting your life.
It means No-heart Peloopi raising taxes on the poor. Because smokers are, by and large, "persons living below the poverty level," the extra tobacco taxes required to fund the latest Naggy Peloseri Statism Dream — also known as H.R. 976, the 109-page Children's Health Insurance Program ReauthorizationMassive Expansion Act of 2007 — would've hit the poor the hardest. Obviously, Dirtbagorats such as Peloathi hate poor people and want to slap more regressive taxes on them.
The Democorruptic Party Nanny-Pelooni Statism World also is full of liberal demagoguesbirm like herself who use big lies and scare tactics to try to fool or pressure you into letting them have their way with you.
Current law covers "almost all of the 6.5 million uninsured children" below 200% the federal poverty level ($41,228 for a family of four in 2006), according to the nannyist Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured (latest PDF factsheet). It's their parents' job to enroll them in either Medicaid or the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) if those parents want that "hand up." The Bush Administration, using its waiver and initiative authorities, has already expanded SCHIP to include children up to 300% of poverty (in New Jersey since 2003). For parents of the remaining 3 million uninsured children, Republican lawmakers have a plan to offer "tax incentives and breaks for middle-class families without health insurance to level the playing field against those who get tax-protected health plans from their employees."
But that's not "good" enough for Demonannies like Peloseri. She wants everyone below the Top 50% income bracket to be entitled to "free" health insurance for their children 21-year-olds.
(No, that's not a misprint. In Pelooni's dreamworld, all 21-year-olds are legally defined as "children." In her Big Nanny State bill, under section 203,
"(G) CHILD DEFINED.—For purposes of this paragraph [the new, aptly numbered 13th paragraph, aptly titled 'EXPRESS LANE (TO NANNY STATISM) OPTION'], the term 'child' means an individual under 19 years of age, or, at the option of a State, such higher age, not to exceed 21 years of age, as the State may elect."
Are there any states that won't automatically invoke the above option?)
Nabby Peluti's attempt to massively expand SCHIP was only the latest in her party's efforts to enact such extreme form of handouts bribes for your votes. Instead of a one-page bill that says "SCHIP is hereby extended for an additional ten years," she and her fellow statists were hell-bent on loading it down with 108 more, all chock full of vote-buying goodies to benefit just her own party's selfish re-election interests. She was even willing to tax steal from the poor and give to the middle class in order to buy the latter's votes.
Surrender Nan' is always on the lookout for some "political victory" for her party, never any kind of victory whatsoever for the good of us all and our whole country.
Fortunately for every overly taxed American with common sense, today our House of Representatives' sane members, including two true Democrats, ushered out Nanny Pelastic's World Commune-ity of massively bigger SCHIPs GIPs. No telling what bribes or threats she dangled in front of the Pro-Freedon 15 13 — all patriots and Republicans, of course — who refused to be taken in, bullied, or otherwise "peeled away" by her and her party's selfish, vote-buying minions.
Now that it's again The End Of The World for Nanny Pelumpi and her statist Demagogic Party, we have a renewed chance to build for ourselves and our nation an even brighter, better, more beautiful world of freedom.

eing a liberal means always having to say people you openly despise and disrespect must always say that they're sorry for whatever they say. Can you say you're intolerant, Mr. Liberal? I thought you couldn't.
How about ignorant, then? If you're going to attack the religious beliefs of your prey "guest," Mr. Inquisition, how about every now and then cracking open the foremost book on the subject and — now, this is the most important part — reading it so you can conduct something other than a sputtering, foolish sounding ambush "interview." That is, first Know Thy Christian Enemy before you pounce on her, Mr. Bigot.
Realizing no such strenuous work is to be found anywhere in your job description, Mr. Discriminator, and even if it were, you and your ilk would still undoubtedly feel sneering at and denouncing your DeMSMoqrat Party's opponents every chance you get are much more "productive" applications of your alleged abilities, I'll include below the relevant passages from that book:
The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
"For it is written.... wisdom of this world?" see Isaiah 29:14, 44:25.
St. Paul the Apostle, he tells us in Philippians 3:5, was "circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews." This means the author of the "anti-Semitic comments" above was himself a Jew. But he wasn't finished — not by a long shot. Addressing his own Hebraic "community" (i.e., Jews — to those of you in Rio Libland):
For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used. For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
"Then said I, Lo... O God" see Psalms 40:6-8. "And every priest... away sins" Exodus 29:38. "But this man.... his footstool" Psalms 110:1. "This is the covenant... no more" Jeremiah 31:33-34. "Having therefore, brethren... pure water" Leviticus 8:6,30; Ezekiel 36:25. "For if we sin... the adversaries" Isaiah 26:11. "He that despised... three witnesses" Deuteronomy 17:6, 19:15. "Of how much sorer... the covenant" Exodus 24:8. "For we know him.... his people" Deuteronomy 32:35-36. "For yet a little.... in him" Habakkuk 2:3-4.
So if any Jews, as St. Paul clearly hopes they should, believe in the "one offering" (Christ) and become Christians, they are forever "perfected."
In the words of Mr. Anti-Christianite J'urinalistbirm: St. Paul, "don't you see how hateful, how anti-Semitic" that is?! "You're an educated man. How do you not see that?"
But wait, Mr. Biased MSMediotbirm, there's even more from St. Paul's "hateful, anti-Semitic" epistle to his fellow Jews:
And these all, (Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, and other Jews) having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Ooeew, there's that hateful, anti-Semetic word "perfect" again! St. Paul says even the most faithful of Jews "received not the promise." He hopes his fellow Jews "run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith." In other words, "Jews need to be perfected."
St. John the Apostle, a Jew himself, wrote these things 2,000 years before Ann Coulter ever thought about echoing them on your conservative entrapment show, Mr. Closed-Minded Liberalbirm.
Go ahead and call the teachings of our Holy Book "anti-Semetic." No one expects anything else from you intolerant and ignorant liberal bigots (but I overly repeat myself). We already knew liberals feel that no one should believe in anything they don't. Why don't we "put you with the head of Iran"?
You DeMSMoqrat Party al-jazeernalists, politicians, and other liberals constantly alienate Christians. You treasonously alienate our allies.
The only ones you won't dare alienate are our country's enemies.
For those of us you keep trying to, Messrs. and Mss. Treacherous Bunch of Traitors and Bigots, we're receiving these messages of yours loud and clear.

§ 241. Conspiracy against rights
If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

In this chapter:
(8) State.— The term "State" includes a State of the United States, the District of Columbia, and a commonwealth, territory, or possession of the United States.
1. Each State Party to the present Covenant undertakes to respect and to ensure to all individuals within its territory and subject to its jurisdiction the rights recognized in the present Covenant, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
2. Where not already provided for by existing legislative or other measures, each State Party to the present Covenant undertakes to take the necessary steps, in accordance with its constitutional processes and with the provisions of the present Covenant, to adopt such laws or other measures as may be necessary to give effect to the rights recognized in the present Covenant.
3. Each State Party to the present Covenant undertakes:
(a) To ensure that any person whose rights or freedoms as herein recognized are violated shall have an effective remedy, notwithstanding that the violation has been committed by persons acting in an official capacity;
(b) To ensure that any person claiming such a remedy shall have his right thereto determined by competent judicial, administrative or legislative authorities, or by any other competent authority provided for by the legal system of the State, and to develop the possibilities of judicial remedy;
(c) To ensure that the competent authorities shall enforce such remedies when granted.
1. No one shall be subjected to arbitrary or unlawful interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to unlawful attacks on his honour and reputation.
2. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.
1. Everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference.
2. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice.
3. The exercise of the rights provided for in paragraph 2 of this article carries with it special duties and responsibilities. It may therefore be subject to certain restrictions, but these shall only be such as are provided by law and are necessary:
(a) For respect of the rights or reputations of others;
(b) For the protection of national security or of public order (ordre public), or of public health or morals.
[U.S. Declaration] "(2) That it is the view of the United States that States Party to the Covenant should wherever possible refrain from imposing any restrictions or limitations on the exercise of the rights recognized and protected by the Covenant, even when such restrictions and limitations are permissible under the terms of the Covenant. For the United States, article 5, paragraph 2, which provides that fundamental human rights existing in any State Party may not be diminished on the pretext that the Covenant recognizes them to a lesser extent, has particular relevance to article 19, paragraph 3 which would permit certain restrictions on the freedom of expression. The United States declares that it will continue to adhere to the requirements and constraints of its Constitution in respect to all such restrictions and limitations."
Every citizen shall have the right and the opportunity, without any of the distinctions mentioned in article 2 and without unreasonable restrictions:
(a) To take part in the conduct of public affairs, directly or through freely chosen representatives....
All persons are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to the equal protection of the law. In this respect, the law shall prohibit any discrimination and guarantee to all persons equal and effective protection against discrimination on any ground such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
Nothing in the present Covenant shall be interpreted as impairing the inherent right of all peoples to enjoy and utilize fully and freely their natural wealth and resources.
The provisions of the present Covenant shall extend to all parts of federal States without any limitations or exceptions.
[U.S. Understanding] "(5) That the United States understands that this Covenant shall be implemented by the Federal Government to the extent that it exercises legislative and judicial jurisdiction over the matters covered therein, and otherwise by the state and local governments; to the extent that state and local governments exercise jurisdiction over such matters, the Federal Government shall take measures appropriate to the Federal system to the end that the competent authorities of the state or local governments may take appropriate measures for the fulfillment of the Covenant."
Any plan of Wackoman's to form some Qongressional Qommissariat within our government for monitoring discouraging and belaboring the full exercise of free speech rights by one or more of the people, is an intentional violation not only of his oath but of our constitution, our laws, and our very way of life.
It should surprise precisely no one that a top Dictatorat in al-Qongress would so attempt to shred our constitution in order to usher in his personal brand of tyranny.

Description: In addition to its aeronomical effects, scientists consensusly believe this element is responsible for all the so-called "dark matter" in the universe (i.e., an inert form of matter emitting absolutely no light which would, absent countervailing forces, contribute to the universe's reversing its expansion and eventually collapsing in on itself until nothing at all — not even energy — remains). Although not radioactive, liberalium is considered highly dangerous, with even casual exposure causing such a massive accumulation of toxic material in the brain that the organ quickly succumbs to total neuron neutralization, leading to brain death or a Demoqratic Party presidential nomination (six of one, a half dozen of the other and all that). Liberalium exhibits no positive reaction to any of the normal elements. For example, any exposure to bushsonium causes it to explode in a most violent and deranged manner. Otherwise liberalium readily bonds with taxustodeathium, a similarly regressive element, to form the economically corrosive acid Lb4Tx, also known as socialism. Mistaking it for progressivium, ideologues of hate and divisiveness throughout the ages have worshiped liberalium because they feel it possesses magical powers that only they can conjure "for the children."
e the Lawyers of the Atheist Communist Litigation Unit, in order to form a more godless union, establish political correctness, insure no public mention of 'God' or 'Jesus' anywhere (but 'Allahu Akbar!' and 'Mother Gaia' are okay), provide for lawsuits against small towns displaying anything even remotely Christain-looking, promote the intolerance of all similar religious expressions (First Amendment be damned!), and secure permanent injunctions from liberal judges to our courtroom opponents prohibiting any and all such displays and expressions, do select and certify this week's recipient of the ACLU's Godless Public Award.
WASHINGTON (AP) — An Ohio lawmaker on Thursday demanded that Capitol officials change a policy that resulted in the word "God" being removed from a certificate accompanying a flag being sent to one of his constituents.
Republican Rep. Michael Turner urged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to review and reverse a rule followed by the Architect of the Capitol that bans the use of religious expressions on flag certificates.
That policy, Turner said in a letter to Pelosi signed by other Republicans, "puts at risk our religious freedoms and heritage."
Turner said the constituent, Paul Larochelle, and his son Andrew had requested a flag flown over the Capitol on Sept. 11 which Andrew, 17, was to give to his grandfather after being inducted into the Eagle Scouts.
They asked that the certificate of authenticity accompanying the flag read: "this flag was flown in honor of Marcel Larochelle, my grandfather, for his dedication and love of God, country and family." The Architect's office, citing its own rules, returned the certificate with the word "God" excised.
"The word 'God' is carved into the walls of both chambers of Congress," Turner said in a statement. "The Architect is the custodian of the Capitol and currently maintains several religious symbols in the building. If permitted, removing 'God' from the Capitol flag ceremonies will be the precedent for removing 'God' from the Capitol, and this cannot be permitted."
"This week's recipient of the ACLU's Godless Republic Lifetime Achievement Certificate is Dhimm al'Qrat James Al-MqDermott, 'U.S.' Representative of the satisfyingly mega-liberal State of Washington's 7th Congressional District, thus continuing that unbroken lock members of his party have had on receiving this certificate since its inception over three decades ago.
"Congratulations to all of this week's winners and the many [dis]honorable mentions [of the Dhimm al'Qratic Party]."
hat's the first thing Demograbpowerats ask when someone says there's a problem? Is it—
A. Can we blame Bush? B. When do we start calling Republicans racists again? C. Can we bring up The Failed War in Iraq™ also? D. What should government do?
If you said A, B, C, or D, you're right. Especially if you said D.
The huge smelly pile of SCHIP spending which DemoNoTaxcuts! would force you and me to foot the bill for after they've bled dry all working-poor smokers Regressive Tax Martyrs, is just another case of Democynics trying to rob us Peters to pay for Pauls' votes.
Fortunately for us and our freedoms, President Bush shoveled that runny mound of bigger government/regressive tax-increase filth back at the Demostatists' al-Qongre$$, where they can whiningly roll it into tiny little balls and shove each one up those extremely large asshats from whence it came.
rom Michael J. Totten's Middle East Journal comes a firsthand account of this civil affairs mission (partly R-rated for language; small dead animals). It's one of many that's helping extend the progress of freedom and hope among all people of Iraq's Anbar Province, as well as showing for all the world to see just some of the great and positive history the members of our nation's Armed Forces and government agencies are indelibly making there.
If Sorry Reid weren't so hell bent on shutting down his political opposition here, he might instead allow time for the media to cover these brave Americans' numerous successes in Iraq. Then our Troops wouldn't have to again ask another embedded journalist—
"Are you going to bash us or what?" he finally said.
"I didn't come all the way out here in August just to bash you guys," I said. I felt some sympathy for his complaint, but was at the same time tired of hearing it. "I write what I see and hear, good and bad. You won't get bad press from me unless you act badly."
"Thank you," he said. "You'll be the first."
I'm hardly the first. I know several journalists, political liberals as well as conservatives, who write it straight and don't wallow in soldier-bashing. But the soldier-bashing that's also out there sure does make an impression. Every journalist who embeds in Iraq must hear these complaints as often as I did, and I heard it daily.
Her leader in "our" Senate is trying to create a scapegoat for their party propaganda's miserable failures, and she just sits on her wrinkly hands.
ational Socialist German Workers' Party's favorite tactic for diverting the people's attention away from their brutalities was to cast themselves and the whole population as helpless victims of the very citizens they were brutalizing.
What does Her Nibs have to say about her leader's gestapo-like, brutish abuse of his office's powers?
If those crickets would only pipe down long enough maybe we might be able to hear it. Even then I doubt there'd be any noise other than her TakingCackling the Fifth to avoid the severest incrimination of her withering self.
