Best. Smackdown. Ever.

Murtha sticks a jackboot up Cheney ass:
"I like guys who've never been there that criticize us who've been there. I like that. I like guys who got five deferments and never been there and send people to war, and then don't like to hear suggestions about what needs to be done."


Filet o'Bob

The White House and its apologists/protectionists shoulda never fucked with the spooks. Now Big Joe Wilson's got Booby in his sights:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Joseph Wilson, the husband of outed CIA operative Valerie Plame, called on Thursday for an inquiry by The Washington Post into the conduct of journalist Bob Woodward, who repeatedly criticized the leak investigation without disclosing his own involvement.

"It certainly gives the appearance of a conflict of interest. He was taking an advocacy position when he was a party to it," Wilson said.

Go Joe!

Chuck Hagel (R-NE) Lets It Rip

Pimpin' Raw:
"The Iraq war should not be debated in the United States on a partisan political platform," the Nebraska senator remarked. "This debases our country, trivializes the seriousness of war and cheapens the service and sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. War is not a Republican or Democrat issue. The casualties of war are from both parties. The Bush Administration must understand that each American has a right to question our policies in Iraq and should not be demonized for disagreeing with them. Suggesting that to challenge or criticize policy is undermining and hurting our troops is not democracy nor what this country has stood for, for over 200 years. The Democrats have an obligation to challenge in a serious and responsible manner, offering solutions and alternatives to the Administration’s policies."

Chuck uses the "V" word:
"Vietnam was a national tragedy partly because Members of Congress failed their country, remained silent and lacked the courage to challenge the Administrations in power until it was too late," he added. "Some of us who went through that nightmare have an obligation to the 58,000 Americans who died in Vietnam to not let that happen again. To question your government is not unpatriotic – to not question your government is unpatriotic. America owes its men and women in uniform a policy worthy of their sacrifices."

Take that Commander Codpiece.

Widdle Bushie Wushie Isn't Happywappy?

Cry me a motherfucking river.

Fedora Boy reports:
The president’s reclusiveness in the face of relentless public scrutiny of the U.S.-led war in Iraq and White House leaks regarding CIA operative Valerie Plame has become so extreme that Mr. Bush has also reduced contact with his father, former President George H.W. Bush, administration sources said on the condition of anonymity.

“The atmosphere in the Oval Office has become unbearable,” a source said. “Even the family is split.”

INSIGHT: Sources close to the White House say that Mr. Bush has become isolated and feels betrayed by key officials in the wake of plunging domestic support, the continued insurgency in Iraq and the CIA-leak investigation that has resulted in the indictment and resignation of Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff.

The sources said Mr. Bush maintains daily contact with only four people: first lady Laura Bush, his mother, Barbara Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes.

So, Bush is Dickless. Tell us something we don't know!

Guttersnipe? Check.

So Fallafel Bill wants San Francisco blown up. He wants Al Qaeda to kill every man, woman, and child living in San Francisco, and he wants my luxury top floor 1100 square foot condo with a view of the City by the Bay, my home away from home that is across from the Mark Hopkins Hotel and kitty-corner to The Fairmont Hotel, the one place on this planet nearest and dearest to my heart, blown to bits.
O’Reilly said “if Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we’re not going to do anything about it. We’re going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco.”

Now Fallafel Bill sez that far-left internet "smear" sites operated by guttersnipes who have the audacity to repeat his hate-speech will be going on a black-list he's establishing on (no linky for you, cocksucker).

We guttersnipes are going on Bill's big bad scary list.

Pick me, pick me!

Update: Taking a que from Hunter at Kos, here's the email I sent to Fallawful:
Dear Bill O'Reilly: Please oh pretty please put me on your Enemies List. It's "Capitola Banta" bitches!

Why do I want to be on your list? Because I think it'd be great for the GWOT if you had broken fluorescent lights shoved up your ass. USA! USA! USA!"

Thieves, Liars, and Bastards

Republicans. They attack Democrats for not having a plan to clean up the fucking mess Team Bush has made of Iraq, and when the Democrats DO present a plan, the thieving lying bastard Republicans take the Democrats' plan, edit out a paragraph that would hold Team Bush accountable to Congress, and pass the Plan off as their own.

Republicans largely adopted a Democratic-offered proposal as their own, but omitted one paragraph calling for the president to offer a plan for a phased withdrawal of the roughly 160,000 U.S. troops now in Iraq.

Will this be reported by the Talking Heads? I'm not holding my breath.

I watched John Fund on that bi'atch Paula Zahn's show last night, and my blood pressure went through the roof. Lie after lie after spin after spin from Fund's mouth, aided by that insipid cunt repeating the GOP talking points, both talking over the Democratic guest who could barely get a word in edge-wise. It was disgusting to watch. With everything we in the reality-based community know, all of Team Bush's lies and spin exposed, the blood of thousands of innocents on Bush's hands, STILL we're lied to, marginalized, mocked, talked over, and have our good ideas and solid plans claimed by the people we're against. Unfuckingbelievable.

And what of Bush. He attacks 70% of Americans from the safety of military bases and Air Force One? Calling US weak? Fucking pussy. Think he'll ever again hold a press conference? Me neither.

White House Jenga

Fun for the whole family.

Step One: Take series of lies and expose them (slowly) to the world. Hold breath and wait.

Step two: Take turns repeating step one until White House wiggles, wobbles, and finally comes crashing down. The last one to kick Team Bush when they're down is the next POTUS.

Merry Fitzmas. Let the Jenga bells ring.

Donald Rumsfeld Is Batshit Crazy

Seriously. The Pentagon's No. 1 man is certifiably insane.

According to Rumsfailed, the Gitmo prisoners aren't on a hunger strike, they're on a diet.
"There are a number of people who go on a diet where they don't eat for a period and then go off of it at some point. And then they rotate and other people do that."

And his role in TreasonGate? Why, it's just like the kids' card game Go Fish.
"How would I know if I ever spoke about it with the vice president over five years?" Rusmfeld said at a Pentagon press conference Tuesday. "I don't recall speaking with him about it, and I don't recall the department being involved. Is it possible? I mean, my goodness, that's -- that question is such a -- it's -- what is that game? Fish. Give me all your sevens or something. I mean, that's not for me."

See what I mean? Batshitfuckinginsano.

Someone, please, get the hook!
