WASHINGTON, July 27 - Senior military lawyers lodged vigorous and detailed dissents in early 2003 as an administration legal task force concluded that President Bush had authority as commander in chief to order harsh interrogations of prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, newly disclosed documents show.
Rotten goddamned fucking swine: Our President, George W. Bush.
Set Shredders to 'Puree'
WASHINGTON - Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said Sunday that he notified White House chief of staff Andy Card after the Justice Department opened an investigation into who revealed a covert CIA officer's identity, but waited 12 hours to tell anyone else in the executive mansion.
Calling an evil swine an evil swine:
The crime that ought to be considered this week is not that Rove may have whispered something or other to a few reporters. The crime is that hundreds, if not thousands, of journalists and politicians in this country have over the years cheerily honored this vile, scum-sucking pig of a human being by calling him names like "genius" and "boy wonder" and "wizard"—as though the business of Rove's life was somehow cute, quirky and lovably mischievous.
Also, Rove and Libby get purjuration, helped write CIA's public statements during politically dicy times.... "The work done by Mr. Rove and Mr. Libby on the Tenet statement during this intense period has not been previously disclosed."
Why, yes, that is peanutbutter.
Iggy and the Stooges 1970 concert footage.
I recently was talking to someone born sometime in the mid-80s. He had never heard of Lawrence Welk, nor had he seen the Lawrence Welk Show (rerun every Saturday at 7 p.m. on WGVU (check your local listings)). I told him he has to see it, so he understands some of the insanity in rock 'n' roll of the time. In the '60s-'70s, Welk had created a world of pastels, big band watered down with pop hits of yesterday and today, patriotic and nostalgic routines, all done by very white people and one black tapdancer.
What you see Iggy doing in this video is fleeing that world of Welk, where music is just like it was in the good-ol-days and everybody is smiling and being a Yankee Doodle Dandy and supporting the President because, by God, our boys are fighting to help those little yeller fellas get rid of communism.
Anyway, the announcer you see at the beginning of the clip reminds me of the Welk-world. Putting this in correct perspective, one realizes really how insane Iggy was. It's 1970, and the end of Western Civilization...
Rove, an ugly dog?
Johnson, who said he is a registered Republican, said he wished a GOP lawmaker would have the courage to stand up and "call the ugly dog the ugly dog."
Not Bush Republicans.
Song poems. You cannot resist.
I Love Japan
This made me smile. Note the wrapping and the bow -- it really is the ultimate Christmas gift!
I need to find this.

Bush Vows to Fire Anyone Convicted of Leak
And if they're sententced after being convicted, then he's really, really gonna fire them!
Rove Rove Rove Rove Rove Rove
“We will fuck him,” Rove said, “Do you hear me? We will fuck him. We will ruin him. Like no one has ever fucked him!”
That was in a story from, when, late 2002? Here's the latest big overview of Rove.
In a familiar Washington twist of fate, Rove's theory of politics is being turned against him—and he is being forced to deploy the Republican machine, which he built on Bush's behalf, for a more personal task: his own defense.
Again, I keep thinking in the language of Walter in "The Big Lebowski"...
WIDR FM's Go-Go Guerrillas dance party in two weeks... You know who is to be one of the disk jockeys.
"Were did I put them... Oh, there are my balls!"
Michael Moore has press conference with Scotty getting beat on over Rove. Watch it, study it.
So, how pissed could journalists get after being used as patsies and pawn, after being lied to, after being shown in public as a bunch of spineless suckers? Stay tuned.
Rove Rove Rove
Rove (no "-gate" needed, really) continues.
The White House is suddenly facing damaging evidence that it misled the public by insisting for two years that presidential adviser Karl Rove wasn't involved in leaking the identity of a female CIA officer.
Is this the first AP, hard news story that uses "the White House" and "misled the public" in the same sentence?
For two years, the White House has insisted that presidential adviser Karl Rove had nothing to do with the leak of a CIA officer's identity. And President Bush said the leaker would be fired.
Now you can watch it on the web here. It's as if the Adams Family were a bunch of cannibalistic psychopaths.

Peering into the Heart of Slime
1. Before the war, documents show up, BushCo says they prove Saddam was getting uranium from Niger.
2. Guy in the know makes a stink about how they are fake.
3. Guy's wife is outed as a CIA agent, obviously as payback.
4. We get stuck in a dumb-ass war, primarily to keep Saddam from being a threat with his WMDs, which turn out not to exist.
5.Karl Rove, it now seems, is likely to have outed the CIA agent, which is a serious breakage of the law.
6. But who's behind the fake documents? Inquiring minds want to know.
7. Also, in a Zogby poll "more than two-in-five voters (42%) say they would favor impeachment proceedings if it is found the President misled the nation about his reasons for going to war with Iraq." And in a WashPost/ABC poll a majority of Americans think BushCo "intentionally misled the American public" in making the case for the Iraq war and 57 percent think that it "intentionally exaggerate[d] its evidence" that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.
I'm just thinking of this scene from "The Big Lebowski":
WALTER: This is what happens when you FUCK a STRANGER in the ASS, Larry.
(As Walter walks out of the house)
WALTER: Fucking language problem, Dude. Little prick stonewalling me.
(Walter pulls a crowbar out of The Dude's trunk)
WALTER: Maybe he'll understand this. YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS, LARRY! YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS?! THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUCK A STRANGER IN THE ASS! HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS, LARRY! THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUCK A STRANGER IN THE ASS!
(As Walter begins to smash a red Corvette outside Larry's house with Larry watching out the window)
We're All Gonna Die
War of the Worlds, not the dumbass movie starring that spazz Scientologist, but the broadcast that freaked out the nation.
Oh, yeah, and Sandra Day O'Connor is going to retire. We're all gonna die. Enjoy your liberties this Independence Day.
