Who's Calling Who Un-American?

. . . yo pot - kettle calling on line two . . .

Posted September 26, 2006 by Mike

In the process of
delivering a Castro-length lefty screed, Keith Olberman managed to call a respected journalist a monkey, denigrate the time-honored all-American Mail-Order Seed Business, and insult everyone to the right of Hugo Chavez. Hugh Hewitt replayed the whole thing on his show today, and it was just amazing, both in length, and in venom. Hugh has an update on Keith here.
Now I can see insulting a journalist - there's been a few I wanted to apply the ol' verbal smackdown to from time to time. And the moonbat left has been calling everyone to the right of Stalin a Nazi since, well, Stalin. But insulting a respectable American-type business is just wrong. I figure he needs one of our **NEW** Monkey Mail-Order Seed Company Vegan Delight Veggie Mix seed packets (shown at right), so it's in the mail tomorrow.

RadioBlogger has Keith's address for all you mail-order seed purveyors.

The Real Stiflers of Dissent

. . . 1st amendment? . . . freedom of speech? . . . what's that?

Posted February 25, 2006 by Mike

From the party that has brought us speech codes on college campuses, The Fairness Doctrine, the shouting down of any speaker or political rally they disagree with, violent protests in the streets, and who are perpetually whining about "domestic spying", I bring you real stifled speech.

From The Olympian:
House orders news releases edited for forbidden phrases



Move over, George Carlin.

House Republicans say there are “seven dirty words” you can never say when talking about the Democrats’ budget this year in Olympia.

Among the forbidden phrases: “Shell game.” “Lack of honesty with taxpayers.” “Tax-and-spend liberal.” “It’s not truthful to say this money is being put into reserve.”

Carlin wasn’t joking about the words not allowed on TV. And it appears the GOP isn’t joking, either.

Republican news releases using the forbidden phrases were removed from Web sites and edited this week by order of the House Chief Clerk’s Office and its legal counsel.
Some of the forbidden phrases include (hat tip to Stefan, the Sharkman, over at Sound Politics):
“Shell game”

“. . . lack of honesty with taxpayers . . .”

“It’s not truthful to say this money is being put into reserve.”

“Tax-and-spend liberals”

“. . . lack of truth in the majority’s message. . .”

“. . . the majority party does not believe . . .”

What was that document they swore to defend and uphold? Let's hope they never get hold of the reigns of power again, or we may see some real censoring.

In an interview with Chris Wallace, former Senator Alan Simpson talks about his friend, VP Dick Cheney, and the media's response to the hunting accident: From the FOX News Sunday edition that aired on Feb. 19, 2006:
WALLACE: Fair to say that your friend doesn't have much regard for the mainstream press, sir?

SIMPSON: I tell you, no. I think he has a high regard for the press, but he has a dismissiveness to stupidity. And where it started, where it started was when he and Colin Powell and Pete Williams, their press guy, when he was secretary of defense, answering questions on the first Gulf War, questions like when will you attack, where will the attack take place and how many forces.

Now, you've got to have rock for brains to ask questions like that.
Heh - couldn't have said it better myself - see my post "Incredibly Stupid, or Just Plain Evil", below - former Senator Simpson continues . . .
And I think at that time he just thought if they're goofy like that, you know, why not just stay away from them.

WALLACE: So I take it, Senator, do you really miss this place?

SIMPSON: No, I do. I loved it. I did. I loved it. And I loved it because it was fun. And I have a lot of pals on both sides of the aisle. I worked with President Clinton. I enjoyed him. President Bush, President Carter - good people doing good things.

But let me tell you, you'll never find it if you just follow the Washington media. You'll never know the good. All you get is controversy, crap and confusion. (emphasis mine)

WALLACE: Well, there you go. That's a slogan. I've got to put that on a bumper sticker. Senator Simpson, we want to thank you.

Done and Done, Chris!

Incredibly Stupid, or Just Plain Evil?

. . . nobody's that stupid, right? . . . Right? *crickets chirping*

Posted February 20, 2006 by Mike

The reason so many talking heads on the left seem to be so incredibly stupid, is because they are incredibly stupid. They can be nothing less for the positions on any number of political issues they are publically willing to take.

A good friend once told me:
"Hollywood actors are chosen

not for what they can do,

but for what they will do."
In a like manner, talking heads on the left are chosen NOT for their intelligence, common sense, and decision-making ability, but for what they are willing to say in obvious opposition to known facts on any given subject in public and on television.

This may also explain why so many hollywood actors/actresses are also spokespeople for the left - they are picked for what they will do, not for what they can do.

"The Politically-Correct person is so conditioned to saying nothing, so as not to offend anyone, that they attach great significance to the smallest comments made by others.

They presume others to be as closed-mouthed as themselves, and that anything said publically must carry great weight by the speaker.

The politically-incorrect person speaks of the most trifling matters without fear, and in so doing, strikes fear in the heart of the politically correct."

Adult Diapers are Top Seller During Spring Festival Travel Season

Scarce public bathroom availability makes adult diapers popular

January 14 is the first day of the Spring Festival travel season, which is estimated at forty days. The number of transport passengers is expected to reach more than 2.04 billion, more than anywhere in the world. Train tickets are limited in availability, but bathroom availability on trains may be even more limited. Passengers are rushing to buy adult diapers as a solution to the limited toilet availability on the trains.

Supreme Court Justice David Souter probably never expected to be subject to the Kelo decision which he recently voted for. The Kelo decision allowed governments to seize private property for private development, as opposed to the long-standing requirement that it be for the public good.

Via Wizbang, an update by FOX NEWS:
Angered by a US Supreme Court ruling that sided with a Connecticut city that wanted to seize homes for economic development, a group of activists is trying to get one of the justices who voted for the decision evicted from his own home.

The group, led by a California man, wants Justice David Souter's home seized for the purpose of building an inn called "Lost Liberty Hotel."

They submitted enough petition signatures - only 25 were needed - to bring the matter before voters in March.

My Own Pet Troll!
I've arrived! . . I've arrived! I've got my own pet troll!

Posted April 6th, 2005 by Michael A. Morrow

USUALLY a troll attacks one's blog. This one is offended by the posting of an NRA graphic, an Eagle graphic, and a simple line of text saying "remember Sept. 11, 2001" on my commercial site!

Imagine it's heart palpitations if it were to read what I post here on my blog!

Here's junior troll Paolo "Kull the Valusian" Marcenaro's observations in their entirety (appropriately annotated), complete with his rather ... peculiar ... brand of punctuation:
...I have found your website by chance and I must say I have been more than amazed by the display of ultra-right, jingistinc, no-brain-indicators such as your NRA badge ...
Ultra-Right? Jingoistic? No-brain-indicators? The NRA simply carries on a long-held American tradition since "The shot heard 'round the world", the American revolution, which started when the British tried to confiscate a cache of American arms.

Our founding fathers had quite a lot to say about the matter of gun ownership by the way. A few examples -

George Washington, our first American President, the father of our country, and an owner of a collection of over 40 guns:
"A free people ought ... to be armed ..."
John Adams, second American President:
"Arms in the hands of citizens [may] be used at individual discretion... in private self-defense ...".
Thomas Jefferson, third American President, and author of that little-known document (to serfs in other countries) known as The Declaration of Independence who wrote:
"No Free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."
Or how about James Madison, fourth American President, who said:
"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms."
Heh . . . . I guess if carrying on a great American tradition in the spirit of our founding fathers is "ultra-right" and "jingoistic" ...

"... and the mark for 'oh'-remembering the 'innocent' victims of 'oh' Spetember the 11th (as if bombing the Nazi Party Canchellory in 1938 would have been a crime...HA! ;-).
Wow! Comparing the World Trade Towers (with representatives from all over the world) to the Nazi Party Chancellery! Gee. I wonder what world view this troll adheres to.

Clue, calling Paolo/Kull - The Nazis were National Sozialists.

That's the left side of the political spectrum, not the right.

Oh - and I think the troll meant remark, not "mark".
You also gave me great laughs with your stupid questions like:

-if the pop culture was aware of the fact Japan and the III Reich were bent on expansionism why were we unprepared???

I hardly consider leading generals and admirals (the authors and commenters on the articles) "pop culture" ...
Well the answer was that your country TOO was bent on expansionism and since its ruling clique knew to be in charge of a nation of morons they knew they had to present the forthcoming war of extermination and annexation as a 'good' fight where you were the offended part.
Anyone who can read history knows that our country at the time was fervently isolationist and in fact Roosevelt ran and was elected on an isolationist platform.

And annexation? Let's see ... where's my U.S. flag ... mmm ... hmmm ... yep ... there's still only fifty stars on it ... Just two more than before WWII. What? Alaska and Hawaii are the two extra stars? And they were US Territories before WWII? Oh.

So which country were we were supposed to have annexed as a result of WWII?

. . . **crickets chirping** . . . tum-te-tum-te-tum . . . hello?
So they bid their time until the Pearl Harbor attack confident that your industrial system could outproduce its foes even if given a late start (thank my ass, with oceans all around your pissy excuse for a country, big feat!!!!).
The state of our military before WWII was abysmal (something you actually acknowledge with your "...even if given a late start..." comment). We were suffering through one of the greatest depressions our country had ever seen. If it hadn't been for the isolationist position and the socialist policies adopted by Roosevelt, we'd have been in such good shape, the Japanese wouldn't have even thought of attacking us.

And what is it I'm supposed to thank your *** for?
That cripple FDR inherited a fortune his granma's family made exporting opium to China in the late 1800s(the notorious 'china trade') so he was used to think of human lives as expendable.
Wow! Attacking the infirm. For wrongs committed by previous generations. And using the attack to imply inhumanity. All in one sentence. Wow!
And he spared no lives, not japanese lives (by researching WMDs to use aganist them),
Hmmmm . . . conveniently leaves out the fact that the Germans were ahead in nuclear weapons development 'till the Norwegian commando team took out the German heavy-water plant.
... nor german lives (not persecuting ANY of the culprits of the COUNTLESS atrocities committed aganist Wehrmacht prisoners...
Countless atrocities against Wehrmacht prisoners? By all accounts, the Wehrmacht prisoners ran into the arms of the west, rather than be captured by the Russians moving in from the east. Paolo/Kull must have mistaken me for a Russian.

And no nationalities are capitalized, but Wehrmacht is? Whose side is this troll on?
... nor jewish lives (by NOT GIVING A DAMN about the shoah of which he was shown ample proofs),
What part of American isolationism do you not understand? The part about American, or the part about isolationism?

And leaving the isolationism aside for the moment, can you begin to imagine the howling that this troll would be spewing forth if we had made a pre-emptive strike against the Germans for the atrocities against the Jews?

Tell me Paolo/Kull - how do you feel about our little so-called "pre-emptive strike" against Iraq? Are you happy that 25 million people are free? Are you happy that Sadam is no longer killing his own people at the rate of about 33,000 people a month?

What's that? ...*crickets chirping*... nothing to say?
... nor u.s. redneck lives...
Most of our citizens lived in cities, even in WWII, so the actual number of "rednecks" involved in the fighting was quite small (get your dictionary out and look "redneck" up - you sound like an idiot when you misuse the term). However, the so-called "rednecks" had a much higher survival rate than the general citizenry and a VERY large impact due to their proficiency with eeeeeviiil GUNS.
... (by letting his own citizens to go dying in droves in poor tanks like the Sherman...obstinately refusing to research a better one counting on the fact that sheer numbers along with bombings and artillery fire would win the war).
Let's see ... we started from zero in 1941 with the M3 Grant, ramped up to release the M4 Sherman in 1942 only one year later, then three years later came out with the M-26 Pershing, which could slug it out head to head with both the Tiger and the Panther. All in four years. Not too shabby. How long would it take your country to produce a main battle tank to fight against the best in the world?

And by the way . . . which part of the world are you from?

The part whose butt we kicked in WWII,


the part whose butt we saved in WWII?

Or maybe you're from one of those completely irrelevant countries that sat WW II out?

And last I heard, sheer numbers, with bombing and artillery fire was the way you win a war, no?
Welcome to the real world, elmo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kull the Valusian.
Paolo "Kull the Valusian" Marcenaro needs a new keyboard - looks like he's been banging on his "!" key and it got stuck.

Christine "Daley" Gregoire
King County, Washington - the new Chicago of politics

Posted December 23, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

Sound Politics, a web-site that provides commentary on current events in Washington State, has the best and most current review of the shenanigans going on in the Washington State Governors race.

In the hand recount, election officials have engaged in some very questionable activities. One of the most interesting is the one that Stefan Sharkansky, of the Shark Blog, posted about in this post on the Sound Politics site. Here's the relevant bit:

47 votes were "corrected" and awarded to Christine Gregoire.
12 votes were "corrected" and taken from Dino Rossi.

Net result Gregoire: +59!

This is analogous to flipping a coin 59 times and getting tails every single time. In this case, the coin was biased towards tails to begin with. Nevertheless, the probability of this happening, I calculate, is 3.1x10-14.
For those without a scientific calculator, here's what that looks like written out:

(for you democrats, that's a reeeeally small number)

Statistical improbability of this magnitude = vote fraud.

Democrats To Buy Wa State Gov Race!
It's HAND-COUNT time! Let the REAL Cheating begin!

Posted November 3, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

The democrat party has successfully raised enough money for a full hand re-count of all 2.9 million votes cast in the Washington State Governor's race. Helping to put them over the top was a $250,000 contribution from John Kerry's unspent presidential campaign warchest.

This will be the third count of votes in the race. Unable to "find" enough votes to fool the vote counting machines, the democrat party wants to revert hand-counting of ballots, the oldest, most inaccurate vote-counting method in existence. The hope is that enough votes can be "interpreted" in Gregoire's favor to swing the election.

To this end, the democrat party sent a letter to Sam Reed, the Washington Secretary of State.

KXLY News 4 out of Spokane Washington:
The five-page letter apparently threatens legal action if Reed does not "make it clear in (his) hand recount guidelines that ballots previously rejected by canvassing boards or election staff should be reviewed again."
The democrat party is obviously hoping that these improperly voted ballots will be re-introduced into the ballot stream for "interpretation" in Gregoire's favor.

Welcome to Washington State, the Chicago of the New Ukrania.

Dino Rossi Wins Recount in Washington State Governor's Race by 42 Votes!
In spite of an additional 245 democrat 'provisional' votes from King County ...
Posted November 24, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

What was it I said about
'finding' another box of ballots?

Dino Rossi has won the recount for the Governor's race in Washington State by a margin of just 42 votes out of a total of almost 3 million votes cast statewide. This in spite of the democrats 'finding' an additional 245 votes at the last minute in King County, the biggest democrat strong-hold.

The election will be certified for Rossi, and then the democrats have the option to demand a recount (the third count of the ballots) of both their choice of counties, and the method of counting. Most likely, they will choose King County, which voted nearly 58% for democrat Christine Gregoire, and they will choose a hand recount, the least accurate vote-counting method, and the method likely to introduce the most number of errors.

If this results in the election being reversed, then by state law, there must be a mandatory statewide recount of the remaining counties in the state by the same method chosen by the challenger for the recount.

This will most likely take the election decision right through the end of December, and possibly into January of 2005.

The democrats have lost two vote counts now. In the words of Hugh Hewitt, "If it's not close, they can't cheat". Unfortunately, it's close, and they've pulled every physical and legal trick in the book to get the results they want.

Use to be, Chicago's Democrat Mayor Richard Daley was the king of vote fraud, and allowing dead people to vote was the norm. Then Richard Daley's son became an advisor to the Gore presidential campaign, and we got the Florida vote debacle of 2000. Now it appears that Washington State democrats and their cherry-picked judges have become clones of their Florida counterparts. Washington State is about to surpass even the idiocy of the Florida vote count.

It's bad enough that this is already the last major political race in the country to be decided. If it continues much longer, look for Washington State to become the butt of dumb voter jokes and vote fraud jokes for the next four years.

I can hardly wait.

Why Liberals Hate Dr. Condoleezza Rice
... umm...gee - 'cause she's SMARTER than they are?

Posted November 24, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

There's been a lot of mean-spiritedness, lack of class, bigotry, and racism directed at Dr. Rice in the last couple of weeks from our 'tolerant' liberal friends on the left. She's everything they say they're for. Here's a very short version of her accomplishments.

She grew up in segregated Alabama, enrolled at the University of Denver at the age of 15, graduated at 19 with a bachelor's degree in 1974, then earned a master's degree at the University of Notre Dame in 1975, followed by a doctorate from the University of Denver's Graduate School of International Studies in 1981. In 1981, she joined the Stanford faculty where she won two of the highest teaching honors -- the 1984 Walter J. Gores Award for Excellence in Teaching and the 1993 School of Humanities and Sciences Dean's Award for Distinguished Teaching. In June 1999, she completed a six year tenure as Stanford University 's Provost. She served as Senior director of Soviet and East European Affairs in the National Security Council, Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, and Special Assistant to the Director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. She has written numerous books and articles, and was on the Board of Directors of many corporations and foundations. On January 22, 2001, she became the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, commonly referred to as the National Security Advisor, and she's now The Secretary of State of the United States of America, the most powerful nation on the planet. And she's well-rounded. People who do one thing well, usually do many things well, and Dr. Rice is no exception - she speaks 4 languages including Russian and is an accomplished pianist.

So why do liberals hate her so much?

'Cause they're not liberals, they're SOCIALISTS.

And there's nothing a socialist hates more than a conservative minority achiever, because it puts THE LIE to ALL of their political cover issues.

'Nuff said.

Let the Teeth-Gnashing and Hair-Rending begin !

Posted November 18, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

FINALLY. The only Governor's race in the country still undecided has ended. Until the recount starts tomorrow.

Dino Rossi, republican, has won the Governor's office in Washington State by a miniscule 261 vote margin.

I'm still trying to figure out how this happened. Don't get me wrong - I think it's great! But the probability of a republican winning in Washington State is like Teddy Kennedy losing in Massachusetts. The democrats run everything in this state. Corruption is rampant, and ballot-box stuffing is the norm. And if that's not enough, "finding" additional ballot boxes after the election usually does the trick.

If Rossi wins the recount, the gnashing of teeth and rending of hair here will make democrat whining in the rest of the country over President Bush's win look trivial.

Expect waiting lines for jumpers on the I-5 ship canal bridge if he wins.

Don't Play Nice with Democrats
Posted November 16, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

Partisan democrat Paul Berendt, chairman of the Washington State Democrat Party, and head cheese of the democrat vote-counting operation, played local conservative radio talk-show host Kirby Wilbur like a tool the other day. In an attempt to be "fair and balanced", Kirby interviewed Paul Berendt on his show. When Mr. Berendt was asked about verifying provisional voters, Mr. Berendt declared emphatically that "every vote is important".

Unbeknownst to Kirby, Mr. Berendt had previously stated that if they came across a Republican provisional voter, they wouldn't count his vote.

I guess "every vote counts" only holds for democrat voters.

How many times does it take to learn that when you try to play nice with democrats, you ALWAYS get burned?

King County, a county in Washington State that encompasses the cities of Seattle, Bellevue, and Redmond, to name a few, and that is bigger than 15 STATES in the United States isn't satisfied. Early this morning, the King County Council voted along party lines to take away the property rights of rural land owners. The democrat-controlled council voted to prevent property owners from using two thirds of their property without payment for the taking.

This comes just 6 days after neighboring Pierce County voted to do the same thing. These are two of the biggest counties in the state. The article is linked at
Orbusmax.com, and appears here on the Seattle Times web-site. For our out-of-state readers, the Seattle Times editorial slant is only a little to the left of the old Soviet tool, Pravda. You can see this in the article when you read it for yourself.

If you think this kind of thing can't happen to you, think again. The same thing is happening all over the U.S., and there's a reason for it - follow the money.

For government to maintain power requires a reliable source of money. In metropolitan areas, it's called property taxes. Property taxes are invariably tied to property value, so anything that raises property values will be welcomed by government at every level.

The most popular tool to raise property values these days is to reduce supply, and no more effective tool to reduce supply exists than down-zoning and environmental regulations.

Environmental regulations have been used to steal more property in the west than any other method. In Washington State, it came in the guise of two laws.

The first was a massive piece of State legislation called the "Growth Management Act". The second was the Endangered Species Act. Under the cover of these two Acts, both administered by faceless, unaccountable bureaucrats, increasingly restrictive regulations have been passed that have gradually stripped away property rights for individual landowners in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties. The results have been devastating to business in Washington State. The decrease in available buildable land has driven property values to insane values, and completely out of reach for the average person. The only people who can afford to live here are the ones that are already "in the system" - the current property owners, or those that come into the state with some significant equity from another high-property-value area.

Washington politicians avoid this problem by saying they don't want the "low-paying" manufacturing jobs, and are trying to attract "high-wage, high-value industries" to Washington.

They're whistling past the graveyard. The biggest single private employer in the state (an aerospace giant that used to be based in Seattle) moved their headquarters out of state as a shot across the bow. Now it has become apparent to anyone with half a brain that the company's manufacturing jobs are also leaving, and they won't be coming back. The company just cannot afford to pay the engineering doctorate wages required for home ownership, to medium-skilled laborers in manufacturing jobs to build airplanes. The company's short-term response? A public pronouncement that "We will continue to assemble aircraft in Washington State". Unfortunately, most of the parts will be built elsewhere. And that elsewhere will be where they can hire people that can afford to buy a home.

It has long since reached the point where, unless you already live here, you can't afford to live here, or to hire employees that can afford to live here. We've got the Growth Management Act to thank for that, and the democrats that passed it, and who continue to pile regulation on top of regulation.

The Growth Management Act and the accompanying Endangered Species Act have driven more jobs out of the state than can be counted. It is so bad, that the four biggest employers IN the city of Seattle are the City of Seattle, King County, the State of Washington, and the Federal Government. With such massive numbers of governmental employees and all their associated contractors, support jobs, and other hangers-on, it's no surprise that anything that raises taxes in this area passes with a large margin. Relief comes only if an insufficient number of people come to the polls, thus invalidating the result. (It's also no surprise that they continue to elect the most extremist liberals to the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate. Only in Washington State, could a US Congressman be re-elected who had broken federal communications law, left the country to suck up to an evil dictator (Saddam Hussein), and accepted campaign contributions (money) from the same evil dictator .... but I digress).

The end result is always a reduction in buildable property, an increase in existing property values, and higher taxes collected by the government. All without producing a thing.

Can the system be fixed? At the current time, no. It would require either electing a super-majority of conservative republicans in both state houses and a conservative republican governor, or a Supreme Court decision that actually punished takings retroactively, and then massive federal enforcement of those findings. I don't see that in my lifetime.

Are there other solutions? Maybe.

How about a legal solution, i.e., a lawsuit? At the current time, only individual landowners can sue, as they are the only ones with standing before the court. It's very unlikely that a small landowner will be able to afford to fight the county, state, and regulatory agencies all at once. How about the large land owner? Well, it appears that large land owners and developers have enough clout (and money) to grease their way out of state-sponsored land takings. And government at all levels of this state is corrupt enough to allow it to happen.

How about removing the affected properties from county control? There are several ways this could happen.

Rural landowners could incorporate into cities - that would be the ultimate hostile act. In many cases though, it requires permission from the state, and since this state is controlled at nearly every level by big-government statists, it would be very difficult.

Rural land owners could form their own county. In fact, this was attempted several years ago. The eastern half of the county tried to secede and form their own county. That effort ran up against the democrat-controlled state legislature and governor who refused to go along with the idea. As before, it would require a complete takeover of both state houses and the governorship to make that happen. Again, not likely in the foreseeable future.

There could be a national solution.

Imagine for a moment a law passed in the US Senate and the US House that required cities with a population of over a certain number of citizens, say 200,000 people? to be their own counties, and that limited the new city/counties ownership of land strictly to land within the currently recognized city limits. Cities above that size that owned land outside the city limits would be required to divest themselves of it. (Imagine the howling that would elicit!)

The net affect of this proposal would be to break up large counties, and return control of rural areas to those people that are most affected. Laws passed by those cities would only affect those cities, and they could not pass the costs off on surrounding rural areas. They would also be unable to regulate the lives of those in the rural areas any longer.

Currently, most of the King County Council comes from city and suburban Seattle and it's bedroom communities. That type of representation would no longer be allowed to make law for the rest of King County. The net result would most likely be a significant roll-back of urbanite-inspired social engineering legislation, and a true return to real property rights.

For those that are horrified at the increased freedom enjoyed by people living outside of the new city/counties, think of it as a return to the concept of the city-state. With the removal of rural "outsiders" from your governing process, you'd have more of a voice in your own government. That's what you keep claiming you want, right? Right? You just don't want others to have the same right, hmmm?

Could it happen? Only if representatives at the national level went for it. Legal justification would be very straight-forward - a repudiation of legislation without representation, just as our founding fathers argued as a justification for our independence.

It would be a return to true representation of people and their respective lifestyles. Those in power in large municipalities would resist mightily, claiming all manner of hardship, but if matching funds were tied to the new law, they'd have to go along, or lose their lifeblood, federal matching dollars.

Like the idea? Call your representatives and propose it. Can't hurt!

Personally, I don't see a downside. Those that want the convenience of living in the city will pay directly for all the costs incurred. Those living outside the city will pay for their costs. And freedom will continue to exist for those willing to take on the responsibility. However, unless something is done soon, property rights will become a thing of the past, and freedom will become just another one of those concepts that's too much work to hang on to.

North Vietnamese directly steered Kerry's antiwar group !!!

Posted October 26, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

WorldNetDaily has just released an explosive story!

Discovered papers: Hanoi directed Kerry
Recovered Vietnam documents 'smoking gun' researchers claim

Posted: October 26, 2004, 1:00 a.m. Eastern
By Art Moore - © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com

Ever since I found out that John Kerry met with the North Vietnamese in Paris during the Vietnam War "Peace" talks, I suspected he was up to no good. Now it's been verified. Documents have been uncovered that show John Kerry's antiwar group was directed by the communists for the express purpose of defeating the United States in the Vietnam War.

Art Moore, in an article just released by WorldNetDaily, reports:
"The first documentary evidence that Vietnamese communists were directly steering John Kerry's antiwar group Vietnam Veterans Against the War has been discovered in a U.S. archive, according to a researcher who spoke with WorldNetDaily."
If so, these documents rival any of those found in KGB files after the fall of the Soviet Union!
"Jerome Corsi, a specialist on the Vietnam era, told WND the new discoveries are the "most remarkable documents I've seen in the entire history of the antiwar movement."
And these documents are not likely to be fakes! Here's a significant excerpt:
Corsi, co-author of the Swift Boat Vets and POWs for Truth best-seller "Unfit for Command," and Scott Swett, who maintains the group's website, have posted a summary of the discovery on the website of Wintersoldier.com.

Corsi says the documents show how the North Vietnamese, the Viet Cong, the People's Coalition for Peace and Justice, the Communist Party of the USA and Kerry's VVAW worked closely together to achieve the Vietnamese communists' primary objective -- the defeat of the U.S. in Vietnam.

"I think what we've discovered is a smoking gun," Corsi said. "We knew when we wrote 'Unfit for Command' that Kerry had met with Madame Binh and then promoted her peace plan.

"This document enables us to connect the dots," he emphasized. "We now have evidence Madame Binh was directing the antiwar movement ... and the person who implemented her strategy was John Kerry."

July 22, 1971, Kerry called on President Nixon to accept the plan at a press conference in which he surrounded himself with the families of POWs, a strategy outlined in the first document.

The two documents also connect the dots between the Vietnamese communists and the radical U.S. group People's Coalition for Peace and Justice through the person of Al Hubbard, a coordinating member of PCPJ and the executive director of VVAW while Kerry was its national spokesman.

"Al Hubbard and John Kerry were carrying out the predetermined agenda of the enemy in a coordinated fashion," Corsi said. "It's a level of collaboration that exceeded anything we had imagined."

And it turns out that even John Kerry's famous "medal toss" protest was specifically directed by the North Vietnamese:
The second document, captured by U.S. military forces in South Vietnam May 12, 1972, urges Vietnamese officials to promote the antiwar activities in the United States.

Significantly, the fifth paragraph makes it clear the Vietnamese communists were using, for propaganda purposes, a protest described as taking place April 19-22, 1971.

This coincides with the well-known "Dewey Canyon III" protest in Washington, D.C., highlighted by Kerry's Senate Foreign Relations testimony charging American soldiers with war crimes.

The document's description of the protest includes the "return the medals" event in which Kerry and other VVAW members threw their war decorations toward the steps of the Capitol.

"No, WE'RE the most left-wing MSM network"
Gee, ... it's a pretty tough call ...

Posted October 20, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

Amazing. Simply amazing. Now 2 out of the 3 major networks have candidly admitted to, or openly demonstrated massive, blatant, bias.

First, CBS, with Dan Rather's fake
Texas Air National Guard memos, and then refusing to investigate the fake memos till AFTER the election.

Then it was ABC's turn with the Halperin Memo, where ABC's staff was informed that -
"We have a responsibility to hold both sides accountable to the public interest, but that doesn't mean we reflexively and artificially hold both sides "equally" accountable when the facts don't warrant that."
Now Drudge has provided a link to this article where ABC's Peter Jennings, ex-Cannuck, turned rock-throwing-protestor, turned jailbird, turned Chief Newsreader, expressed this revealing little insight into his views on objectivity in reporting:
"I'm a little concerned about this notion everybody wants us to be objective," Jennings said.
He must have felt that the Halperin Memo wasn't enough to compete with Dan Rather's afore-mentioned fake memos.

As an aside, check out the editorialized sub-title of the article:
"Jennings says Aim is Objectivity, Fairness"
Diametrically opposed to Peter Jennings' direct quote!

I can't wait to see what NBC's entry in the "No, WE are the most left-wing biased MSM network" sweepstakes will be.

Both Sides Not "Equally" Accountable ...
We've known this for years - now we finally get to see it in black and white.

Posted October 8, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

Drudge is reporting tonight that ABCNEWS Political Director Mark Halperin has penned a memo in which he says that both Bush and Kerry should not be held "..."equally" accountable...". Here's the money quote:
"We have a responsibility to hold both sides accountable to the public interest, but that doesn't mean we reflexively and artificially hold both sides "equally" accountable when the facts don't warrant that."
...aaaannnnd here's the entire memo:

Halperin Memo Dated Friday October 8, 2004

It goes without saying that the stakes are getting very high for the country and the campaigns - and our responsibilities become quite grave.

I do not want to set off (sp?) and endless colloquy that none of us have time for today - nor do I want to stifle one. Please respond if you feel you can advance the discussion.

The New York Times (Nagourney/Stevenson) and Howard Fineman on the web both make the same point today: the current Bush attacks on Kerry involve distortions and taking things out of context in a way that goes beyond what Kerry has done.

Kerry distorts, takes out of context, and mistakes all the time, but these are not central to his efforts to win.

We have a responsibility to hold both sides accountable to the public interest, but that doesn't mean we reflexively and artificially hold both sides "equally" accountable when the facts don't warrant that.

I'm sure many of you have this week felt the stepped up Bush efforts to complain about our coverage. This is all part of their efforts to get away with as much as possible with the stepped up, renewed efforts to win the election by destroying Senator Kerry at least partly through distortions.

It's up to Kerry to defend himself, of course. But as one of the few news organizations with the skill and strength to help voters evaluate what the candidates are saying to serve the public interest. Now is the time for all of us to step up and do that right.
... wait - does this mean they're going to "spin" the presidential election news??

I'm shocked! SHOCKED, I tell you! Why ... why ... this is appalling !

I NEVER would have guessed they would stoop that low ...

/sarcasm off.

A couple of comments:
"Kerry distorts, takes out of context, and mistakes all the time, but these are not central to his efforts to win."
By their own admission, Kerry lies, lies by ommission, and makes mistakes all the time. However, Mr. Halperin's assertion that
"... these are not central to his efforts to win", is just wrong.

They are exactly central to his efforts to win. He cannot win if he tells the truth about his positions. His assertion that we are fighting "the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time" about the Iraq war alone would relegate him to an also-ran.

"We have a responsibility to hold both sides accountable to the public interest ..."
Boilerplate - if it's important to our cause(s), we'll get right on it, BUT ...
"... but that doesn't mean we reflexively and artificially hold both sides "equally" accountable when the facts don't warrant that."
"...when the facts don't warrant that." - The "facts", as interpreted by ABC NEWS. A fact about Kerry that would show him in an unfavorable light - not reflexively warranted to hold Kerry accountable. On the other hand, a fact that would show Bush in a bad light? We can hold HIM both reflexively AND artificially accountable. What a weasel.
"... by destroying Senator Kerry at least partly through distortions." (highlight mine)
They as much as admit that most of the criticisms are SPOT ON. If they weren't, you can bet that little "... at least partly ..." bit wouldn't have gotten anywhere NEAR this little missive to the party faithful.

"... But as one of the few news organizations with the skill and strength to help voters evaluate what the candidates are saying ..."
Heaven forbid "the voters" should evaluate what the candidates are saying on their own! Come'on - say what you really mean - you've gotta spin this stuff like there's no tomorrow.

Come to think of it, it may not be too long before there IS no tomorrow for you if you loose this one. There may not even be a tomorrow if you do, thanks to the pajamahadeen! Heh!
"Now is the time for all of us to step up and do that right."
Spin, ABCNEWS! Spin like there's no tomorrow! You've got an election to swing!

They've got their marching orders, and in the words of Jim Geraghty, we've got ours:

the blogosphere buries Dan Rather

Posted September 10, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

I've been trying to keep my bandwidth usage down, but this is just toooo good ...

POWERLINE blog broke the story first in a post titled "The Sixty-First Minute" - within mere hours, they were buried with citizen-experts contributing expertise from all over the blogosphere.

Charles over at Little Green Footballs was able to reproduce the forgery using Microsoft Word with the default settings! He overlayed the documents and they matched almost perfectly. And just to rub it in, he then did it again, using a .pdf file, and got an EXACT match!

The best shot so far? This little bit over at Wizbangblog (via Laurence Simon's post 'microsoft hoax 2000' almost made me fall off my chair. I'm still suffering from intermittant fits of snickering and giggling, and the almost uncontrollable desire to waste a bunch of time p-shopping my own "Clippit" pop-up note.

Update - September 11, 2004: Looks like somebody else couldn't resist the impulse to do their own "Clippy" p-shop. Watching this all un-fold couldn't be more fun than if I'd forged the documents myself! .... oops - nobody saw me say that, did they?

Updated Update - Sept. 11, 2004:
...aaaaaaand yet another Clippy...

Al Qaeda and the democrat party Agree . . .
So why am I not surprised . . . again?

Posted August 12, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

From the article
"Bin Laden hints major assassination", By Bill Gertz of THE WASHINGTON TIMES:
"The goal of the next attack is twofold: to damage the U.S. economy and to undermine the U.S. election," the official said. "The view of al Qaeda is 'anybody but Bush.' "
(emphasis mine)
Not only do Al Qaeda and the democrat party have the same goal for the U.S. presidential election ("anybody but Bush"), they both hope to achieve that goal the same way.

What a surprise.

As an aerospace engineer, I'm more than passingly familiar with classified document handling.

As a matter of fact, I can not COUNT the number of times I've heard the phrase

"$100,000 fine and Ten Years In Prison

for every offense"

during security briefings.

When I first heard
THIS report from FOX NEWS of actions taken by Sandy Berger, Former President Clinton's National Security Advisor, I was truly stunned !

"Former President Clinton's national security adviser is under criminal investigation for taking highly classified terrorism documents that should have been turned over to the independent commission probing the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, FOX News has confirmed."
Well, no big deal, right? I mean, after all, they probably weren't THAT important were they?

"However, some drafts of a sensitive after-action report on the Clinton administration's handling of Al Qaeda terror threats during the December 1999 millennium celebration are still missing, officials and lawyers said. Officials said the missing documents also identified America's terror vulnerabilities at airports to seaports." (emphasis mine - and I'm sure the author meant "... and seaports.")
Oh my. I guess maybe they were important after all.

But WAIT ! It gets even BETTER ....

"Berger and his lawyer said Monday night he knowingly removed the handwritten notes by placing them in his jacket, pants and socks, ...."
There must have been a LOT of notes to have to resort to stock-stuffing. Or maybe he just got confused, and thought he was filling Christmas stockings hanging from the mantle. Yea! That's it - he's just old and confused, and thought he was doing Christmas stockings.
"... and also inadvertently took copies of actual classified documents in a leather portfolio."
What? He ran out of room in his shorts and socks?

hmmmm ... what're we up to now? $200,000 and 20 years in prison?

I personally know of people who were FIRED for making real mistakes while TRYING to follow the rules. This guy was the friggin' NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR, and he was stuffing documents in his shorts and socks???

Never mind the fact that the documents that are now MISSING would have made Former President Clinton look REALLY, REALLY BAD if they had been seen by the incredibly inept, lazy, ineffective, and completely partisan 9/11 Commission, of which, the entire reason for existence appears to be covering Clinton's sorry butt.

Whataya mean I'm "just blaming Clinton"?
"Officials said Archive staff specially marked the documents and when the new copy and others disappeared, Archive officials called Clinton attorney Bruce Lindsey." (emphasis mine)
"Archive Officials called Clinton attorney Bruce Lindsey"??????






And prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Anyone who calls someone other than the FBI or the Defense Intelligence Agency after finding out about something like this DOES NOT BELONG WORKING WITH/ON CLASSIFIED MATERIAL.

Thousands of honest, hard-working citizens have to follow rigorous classified document handling rules on a daily basis for fear of not just personal penalties, but also of critical classified information falling into enemy hands.

IF the rules governing document handling mean ANYTHING AT ALL, Berger should spend the rest of his life in prison, and those who helped his actions by not reporting them immediately, should also go to prison.

Anything less would make those rules meaningless.

UPDATE: - Breaking now on Drudge:


Yea? I'll bet people who've been fired for rule infractions don't think it's so funny. And if it turns out you had something to do with it, maybe a few years in a federal penitentiary would be a "non-story" for you too.

And they ACCEPT IT!?!

A few days ago, I posted a ditty about Michael Moore getting an offer from Hezbollah, a known terrorist organization, to help distribute his anti-Bush propaganda flick.

Unbelievably, They have now accepted it!!!

The company distributing filmmaker Michael Moore's Bush-bashing movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" says it won't reject an offer of help from Middle East terrorist organization Hezbollah.

As WorldNetDaily reported, terrorists affiliated with the Iran-backed network last week offered to help promote the film in the United Arab Emirates.

The movie industry publication Screen Daily reported, "In terms of marketing the film, [distributor] Front Row is getting a boost from organizations related to Hezbollah which have rung up from Lebanon to ask if there's anything they can do to support the film." ...
I'm absolutely speechless.

Michael Moore Has Some NEW FRIENDS!

Posted June 18, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

Michael Moore's anti-bush propaganda film "Fahrenheit 9/11" has finally achieved the kind of recognition it deserves! Halleluyah!

Or maybe I should say "Allahu Akbar"? ...

internationally known organization has offered to assist him in his desire to achieve wider distribution of his cinamatic opus of lies:

"... Meanwhile, in the United Arab Emirates, the film is being offered the kind of support it doesn't need. According to Screen International, the UAE-based distributor Front Row Entertainment has been contacted by organisations related to the Hezbollah in Lebanon with offers of help."
(emphasis mine)

With friends like these ... heh-heh.

Yo! Moore-dude! Now that you know who your real audience is, ring up OBL - he's got a ton of cash, and I'm sure he'd be more than happy to pony up for your little flick.

wait - that just sounded wrong - "... little film." - I meant film!

AND several other murdering thugs and their supporters around the world all support the Democrat party,
AND that party's candidate of choice for the next president of the United States has praised a Palestinian terrorist leader as a "role model" and a "statesman",
AND who just happens to be loved by the French;

SMACKDOWN Review - Part II
It's Gonna Be Uuuu-gly, Folks! And HIGHLY OFFENSIVE! ... You've been warned ...
Posted April 26, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow

"Michael Cole here, announcing at ringside with Tazz. Just moments ago before we went to break, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Tom Daschle came to SMACKDOWN to perform a public service and to tell our young people about the importance of voting. Shortly after they stepped into the ring, it all went horribly wrong. We have to warn you, it's really an ugly sight, and a horrible turn of events.

Here’s the tape of what happened while we were away on break:"

Roll tape of what happened on break

"We now return you LIVE to ringside where this horrible turn of events has escalated into one of the worst disasters in wrestling history."

"... Bubba-Ray slides the table into the ring, and follows it under the bottom rope. Devon is already in the ring stalking Hillary. Now Bubba-Ray is setting up the table, and look at this! Eight Secret Servicemen just jumped into the ring and they've formed a protective ring around Hillary. Here comes Paul Heyman! Maybe he can restore order. Oh No! Rob Van Dam has just clothes-lined General Manager Paul Heyman! He just dropped to the floor outside the ring like a bag of potatoes. Now Rob’s giving Paul Heyman a piece of his mind for having him beat during the last episode of SMACKDOWN. Paul Heyman is DOWN, BUT LOOK! Here comes Booker T! LOOK OUT ROB! ...OOOOH! ... That had to hurt! It looks like the Dudley boyz didn’t think much of that. Devon and Bubba-Ray have both come sliding out of the ring feet first to come to Rob Van Dam's aid. Looks Like Booker T’s got his hands full."

"Vince seems to have recovered his composure ... looks like he’s got something to say ... he’s moving towards the center of the ring, and ... WHAT’S THIS?? It looks like a couple of the Secret Servicemen have misstaken him for just another thug! They’re clubbing him into submission! Now they’re dragging the Chairman of the WWE out of the ring! I think they’re trying to arrest him! LOOK! Here come Triple-X and Batista running down the ramp to Vince’s aid. It’s the start of a melee outside the ring, folks! Another Secret Serviceman is jumping out of the ring to assist the two being pulped by Triple-X and Batista. Three agents down, five to go."

"Victoria won’t make THAT mistake - she’s staying well away from the Secret servicemen - She’s in the opposite corner. Yea, she’s not dumb!"

"It looks like Bubba-Ray has gotten a glimpse of one of Hillary’s legs - his eyes are glazing over ... he's walking towards the ring .... Whew! Devon finally saw the look on his face and headed him off before he got back in the ring, and now they're back to tag-teaming Booker T."

"Well, at least Hillary's safe for now, and ... OH NO! Look! It’s Molly Holly! She’s running towards the ring! She’s still got unfinished business with Victoria because Victoria pulled her wig off the other night on SMACKDOWN! Here she comes! Ooooooh! What a shot! Victoria’s running away from Molly - now Victoria’s trying to dodge behind Hillary and what’s left of her Secret Service detachment. Ooooooh! Molly just swung at Victoria and missed! She’s just clocked one of the Secret Service agents and he is DOWN! Two of the agents have now grabbed Molly, and .... WHAT’S THIS! Hillary Clinton is Hitting Molly Holly! Now she’s grabbing Molly’s hair, and ... OH NOOOO! HILLARY HAS PULLED OFF MOLLY HOLLY’S WIG! THAT wasn’t a smart move Hillary! Molly’s Furious, but she can’t do anything with two agents holding her. BUT LOOK BEHIND THEM! Where'd he come from! It’s HARDCORE HOLLY - and HE’S GOT A CHAIR!. WHOOOA! He’s just clocked both the agents that were holding Molly Holly, and they are DOWN FOR THE COUNT! It looks like Hillary’s only got two agents left to protect her." "If I were her, I’d beat a hasty retreat!" "Molly Holly’s loose now, and look at Victoria run!" "Can you blame her after what Molly did to her last week? Victoria’s not up for this - she’s ducking out of the ring in a big hurry! Molly’s furious. She’s storming around the ring looking for SOMEBODY to take it out on!"

"Oh Boy! ... Molly Holly has just spotted Hillary, and Hillary’s still holding Molly’s wig. RUN HILLARY! Molly’s heading for Hillary, and ... What's This? HARDCORE HOLLY is threatening the last two agents with that chair! They’re trying to keep away from Hardcore, and now Hillary’s exposed! OH NO! Molly Holly’s got Hillary by the hair! Come on agents, do something!" "It doesn’t look like they want to get involved with Hardcore Holly, and Molly Holly’s taking advantage of the opportunity! She’s just WHALING on Hillary!"

"LOOK! HERE'S a distraction! It’s Sable!" "WOW! Does she look HOT Tonight!" "She ALWAYS looks hot! Look at the way she steps into the ring!" "And look at Tom Daschle - maybe this is his chance to escape while everybody’s watching Molly Holly beat Hillary." "What’s Sable doing?" "I'm not sure, but it looks like she’s eyeballing one of the agents." "OOOooooh! Sable just stomped Tom Dashle! Now she’s got him in a headlock! Ooooh! Sable just DDT’d Tom right in the middle of the ring! What is it about that guy? Every WWE Diva that sees him, seems to feel the need to abuse him." "Funny, but I feel the same way, Tazz."

"Now she’s doing that come-hither thing with that agent. Looks like he’s up for it. Now she’s leading him off to the corner of the ring, and Ooooh! That’s gotta hurt! Sable just decked him with a low blow, and he just rolled right out of the ring! Hey! Where’s Sable going? She comes in, stomps Tom Daschle, rolls a Secret Service agent, and then just leaves?" "I don’t know. Beautiful women don't need a reason for anything they do - maybe she’s got a date." "Now there’s only one agent left!" "Yea, but he's not doing much to protect Hillary. Molly Holly is really going to town on Hillary for ripping her wig off! Can’t anybody help Hillary?"

"Here comes Rico! It looks like he wants to protect Hillary!" "That’s disgusting! Rico just goosed Hardcore." "Hardcore’s turning away from the last agent - now he’s staring at Rico, and Rico’s smiling! Hardcore looks like he’s backing off and turning away, and Rico’s taking a bow. OH NO! Hardcore Holly just turned back and clocked Rico with that chair - LOOKOUT TAZZ! RUN!"

"Ladies and gentlemen! That was one of the biggest smackdowns I have EVER seen! Rico cleared the top rope and landed on the announcer’s table, and just crushed it! Tazz, I don’t know about you, but I’d feel a whole lot safer announcing from behind the spectator wall!"

"Well that didn’t last long, and Molly Holly is still beating the stuffing out of Hillary." "At least it won't damage her looks any." "That's a TERRIBLE thing to say." "Hey! Just telling it like it is." "Can’t ANYBODY protect her?"

"Waitaminute! What’s that music? Could it be? IT IS! It’s John Bradshaw Layfield! He’s stepping into the ring! What a Great American! And look! He’s gesturing that he’s going to help defend Hillary!" "Well, it’s about time. Molly has pretty well pulped her." "Looks like Molly Holly got her wig back, and Hardcore Holly is escorting her from the ring. John Leyfield has taken up the challenge - he's shaking hands with the last remaining agent, and ... LOOK OUT! It’s the World Heavyweight Champion Eddie Guerrero! He’s sneaking up behind Leyfield! WOW! Eddie Guerrero has JUST NAILED John Bradshaw Leyfield with the World Championship belt, and he is OUT COLD!"

"At least Hillary still has one agent to protect her, and that's ... LOOK OUT! Hardcore Holly's back with his chair! The last agent doesn't see him! Oooooh! Right out of the ring under the ropes with one swing of the chair! Now there's nobody to protect Hillary at all! Hardcore Holly is leaving the ring, now he's walking up the ramp and ... he's waving to the crowd!"

"The crowd has gone NUTS! Eddie Guerrero has got John Leyfield’s $1000 cowboy hat, and he’s strutting around the ring with it. Uh-oh. Looks like he sees Hillary laying there in the middle of the ring." "Whataya think he’s gonna do?" "He’s looking ... you don’t think he’d ... He’s bending over Hillary ... what’s he ... HE'S STEALING HER JEWELRY! HE CAN’T DO THAT! That's a disgrace! And HER WATCH! And HER RING!" "Well, the ring didn’t mean anything anyway." "Yea, but it’s the principle of the thing - ya just don’t steal a person’s ring when they’re out cold." "Who’s gonna help Hillary now?" "I don't know. Is there anybody that CAN help Hillary?"

"Wow! Here’s your answer! Is that who I think it is??? IT IS! It’s THE BIG SHOW! The BIG SHOW's still smarting from being beaten by Eddie recently, and he’s got a score to settle! Look at Eddie! He’s mocking the SHOW! The BIG SHOW is running towards the ring, but Eddie's already gotten into his Low Rider, and he’s driving out the back entrance! And He’s WAVING to the BIG SHOW! Look at the SHOW go! Who’d have thought a guy that big could move so fast. I guess we won’t be seeing him again for a while. Hillary's running out of help. Is there anybody in the locker room ..."

"LOOK! Look up the ramp! Bubba’s gone catatonic! ... What’s he? ... OH NO! I thought she escaped! The Dudleys have caught Nancy Pelosi! They’re dragging her back to the ring! Devon’s pulling out another table and setting it up in the ring! Now Bubba’s dragging her into the ring by her hair! Now he’s dragging her to the ropes in the corner! They're on the top rope! He’s ... OH NO! ... IT’S THE 3-D!!! THEY JUST 3-D'd NANCY PELOSI!!! And the crowd is cheering like crazy! The crowd is sick! Look at that table! It’s totally crushed!"

"In all the mayhem, it looks like Tom Daschle’s trying to crawl out of the ring, and ... WHAT??? Molly Holly has snuck back and she’s dragging Tom back to the center of the ring! What’s she doing?" "Maybe she’s trying to protect him." "That’s a funny way of protecting him - it looks like she’s setting him up for another body slam. OH NO! Here it comes! Ooooooh! Tom’s just been slammed by another one of WWE’s Divas. He’s just not getting ANY respect from the ladies of the WWE."

"I wouldn't worry about Tom! Look! Hillary's coming to! She’s trying to get up! And she's got nobody to protect her! Molly sees her! Now Molly's stalking her! Hillary sees Molly! RUN Hillary! Hillary’s backing away, and ... It’s ... It’s ... It’s Spike Dudley! Where’d he come from? What’s he doing ? It looks like ... He wouldn’t, would he? Hillary’s backing away ... Spike’s looking around ... nobody’s watching ... Hillary doesn't see him! ... Isn’t there anyone to come to her aid? Hillary's staggering around - she turns ... it looks like ... OH NO! He's gonna ... OH NOOOOO! He’s speared her!!! Spike has speared Hillary and she's down in the corner, and ... Molly's walking up the ramp, smiling and waving to the crowd! Nobody's in the ring except ..."

"... OH NO! It’s Rikishi! Where'd he come from! Look at the look on his face! He wouldn’t do that would he!?! Not to a former first lady!?! The crowd is going wild!!! ... Rikishi’s ... NO! ... He’s really going to do it!!! AND ... HILLARY! HILLARY! STAND UP! Oh, the horror of it all! Rikishi’s getting set ... everybody else is down outside the ring! There’s nobody to help her ... where’s the Secret service??? ... NOOOO!!! Here he comes! ... He’s really gonna to do it! ... OH NOOO!!! HE’S REALLY DONE IT! ... HE GAVE A STINKFACE TO THE FORMER FIRST LADY!!! LOOK!!! SHE’S CLAWING AT HER FACE!!! SHE’S ROLLING ON THE FLOOR!!! AND HERE COMES SCOTTY-2-HOTTY!!! LOOK AT HIS EYES!!! OH NO!!! NOT ... HE IS!!! HE’S GONNA DO IT! HOW CAN HE DO THIS TO A FORMER FIRST LADY?!? HERE IT COMES!!! THE CROWD IS GOING NUTS!!! THEY’RE ACTUALLY CHEERING HIM ON!!! IT’S ... IT’S THE WORM!!! The crowd ... they’re going nuts!"

... W! .. O! .. R! .. M! ..

WOO...WOO...WOO ... WHAM!!!

"SCOTTY HAS JUST PINNED THE FIRST LADY!!! THE CROWD IS GOING BERSERK!!! RIKISHI AND SCOTTY HAVE JUST TAG-TEAMED THE FIRST LADY!!! AND ...WHAT ARE THEY DOING ??? ... They’re ... They’re gonna DANCE??!!?? ... AND LOOK!!! IT’S GRAND MASTER SEXAY!!! WHAT'S HE DOING HERE??? He’s supposed to be on WWE RAW! What’s he ... ... He’s got ... He’s got 3 pairs of SUNGLASSES!!! He’s PASSING THEM OUT TO Scotty 2 Hotty and Rikishi ...and ... they’re ... they’re not really going to ... Who turned out the lights??? Look!!! They’ve put a spotlight on Rikishi, Scotty, and the Grand Master!!! THE CROWD IS STANDING ... They’re gonna do it!!! Oh No!!! EVERYBODY’S DANCING!!! HAVE THEY NO RESPECT??? WHATAYA MEAN SMACKDOWN IS OVER??? IT CAN’T END LIKE THIS!!! THE FORMER FIRST LADY IS JUST LAYING THERE IN THE RING!!! EVERYBODY'S LEAVING!!! THEY'RE DANCING IN THE ISLES!!!"

I can't believe it. This has been one of the most terrible ... wait ... there’s some movement outside the ring ... one of the bodies is moving ... it’s Rene Dupree, the Frenchman! It looks like ... It looks like he’s climbing into the ring, and he’s ... he’s picking up Hillary, and OH NOOOO!!! I’M BLINDED!!! DID YOU SEE WHAT HE JUST DID??? HE PLANTED ONE RIGHT ON HER LIPS!!! And now he’s carrying her out, stumbling over the bodies. I can’t believe what we just witnessed!"

"Ladies and Gentleman at home, they might as well cancel the next WRESTLEMANIA pay per view - nothing can top this ... nothing ... it’s just too ... too ... too horrible to contemplate. WHAT??? VINCE!!! HOW COULD YOU EVEN THINK OF SOMETHING LIKE THAT??? Whattaya mean "think about the ratings?" Tazz, that’s just wrong! And besides ... she wouldn’t come back, not after this."

"... How much? hmmm ... You really think she’d come back? ... VINCE!!! THAT’S DISGUSTING!!! And besides ... you wouldn’t actually ask one of our FINE WWE RAW or SMACKDOWN Divas to do that? WHAT??? YOU’D WRITE IT INTO THEIR CONTRACT??? THAT’S JUST EVIL! I’M LEAVING! I CAN”T BE A PARTY TO THIS! YOU ANNOUNCE IT AT THE NEXT SMACKDOWN! OWW! Who left all these bodies in the isle? Somebody turn the lights back on please!"

Smackdown Review - Part II

Hillary and Pelosi to appear on WWE SMACKDOWN!
Have they actually WATCHED an episode of WWE SMACKDOWN?
Posted April 22, 2004 by Michael A. Morrow


Pelosi, Clinton in WWE smackdown
By Hans Nichols

In an effort to capture the elusive youth vote, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) will get into the ring tomorrow with two World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) competitors, superstar Chris Nowinski and the brawny women’s champion, who goes by one name - Victoria.

Joined by Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), Pelosi and Clinton are hosting the first “Next Generation Democratic Summit” for some 250 young leaders on Capitol Hill.

Democrats hope to gain coveted airtime on one of two TV shows - “Smackdown” or “Raw” - that are popular with the 18- to 29-year-old male demographic. Those shows have a combined audience of about 19 million, said WWE spokesman Gary Davis.
I can't wait. If Hillary, Pelosi, and Daschle actually get into the SMACKDOWN ring, you can bet I'll have a tape in the machine!

I've just got one question - Have any of these democrats actually SEEN an episode of SMACKDOWN? If they had, they'd know how risky (how much fun? heh heh!) appearing in the ring on SMACKDOWN might be. The SMACKDOWN audience is the most irreverent audience on television today, and one of the least tolerant of perceived anti-american points of view. Good guys get cheered, bad guys get jeered. Hey - let's just tell it like it is.
They're *GASP* Flag-wavers!

I can see it all now .... roll the tape boys:

Vince McMahon steps into the ring to the usual crowd chant ...

***HOLE, ***HOLE, ***HOLE, ***HOLE ...

The crowd gradually quiets down and Chris Nowinsky steps into the ring. The crowd starts up the chant again ...

***HOLE, ***HOLE, ***HOLE, ***HOLE, ...

Finally, the well-endowed Victoria steps into the ring to cheers, whoops, and hollers from a stadium full of "18 to 29 year old males". After lots of build-up and hoopla, Hillary and Pelosi step into the ring. Hillary takes the mic, and the audience starts another one of their famous chants:

SL*T! ... SL*T! ... SL*T! ... SL*T! ...

An angry Hillary tries to shout the crowd down - they respond with even louder chants. Nancy Pelosi decides to beat a hasty retreat, and slinks out of the ring. Tom Daschle takes the mic, and attempts to quiet the crowd - the crowd changes the chant:

... YOU S*CK! ... YOU S*CK! ... YOU S*CK! ...

Tom tries to talk louder (well, as loud as he can)

... WUSS! ... WUSS! ... WUSS! ... WUSS! ...

The crowd follows with jeers, and the chant changes to

... booooooring! ... booooooring! ... booooooring! ...

This is followed by a rising chant of

... Taaa-ble! ... Taaa-ble! ... Taaa-ble! ... Taaa-ble! ...

Vince backs nervously away from the center of the ring - Victoria looks at Vince - Vince nods, and Victoria body-slams Tom Dashcle to the floor to the cheers of the crowd. Only Hillary is left standing. The crowd continues the "Taaa-ble!" chant, with no sign of a let-up.

Finally the Dudley Boyz tag team runs out to the ring.

Bubba reaches under the ring apron and pulls out a table ....
