What happen to the post about the heckler? Are you going to put that one back on?? Give us the scoop. And comments about the song, lyrics, and picture of the Gerbil? He certainly is an egghead and will have egg in his face thrown at him on his way out from the Oval office as the worst President ever!

Pump up the gas prices too. As for the decider well lets say Scotty wasn't given a choice again Bush lied. When things go wrong the Decider blames someone else. Notice the payback given to the President of China for him visiting Gates first. Bush planned this visit for a year yet one lady broke in now was it a plan or a mistake. We know it was a plan and I'm sure the President of China knows it too.

I just emailed some of friends this parody. Very hilarious.

Many of my Republican friends have switched party affiliations and I am not too far from behind. I may register as a unaffiliated in my state.

Democrats are not better than the GOP

The White House staff shakeup will do nothing to stop the downward spiral of this Administration. Eventually everyone gets caught, thanks to the many good people like our PJF.

The tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, made far worse by government incompetence, stands both as a metaphor and an example of this Administration.

Indict Karl Rove. His new job, at taxpayer's expense, is to keep Republicans from losing Congress. If Democrats win control and thereby get subpeona power, it'll be years before they recover. A good thing for our country, so get the tubby guy OUTTA THERE.

I want to be like SPB in the latest news. Listen up Biloxi:
Fox news poll says Bush is at 33% yes Fox news. Now if Fox news aka Bush station reports 33% you can bet its 10 or 20's. As usual you were right again. Do you have a crystal ball for these insights? I know you guys are under a gag order but I'm not. I'd forget anything I'm told anyway so I'm not threat.

Jackie,

My mother raised me well with keen thoughts. I just pay attention and connect the dots. The Gerbil Administration as predictible to when you have to sneeze... Faux news is trying to do everything that they can to make Bush look good! The mews media is in the back pocket of the Gerbil. BTW, there is no way in hell that I would ever lower my standards to work for a news media like Faux news! My integrity and faith are here on this blog, you fellow bloggers, and Fitzgerald's current and future cases to report the news! And thanks for passing that tip news from Faux news!

I thought I update you about the Enron Trial. Today, the defense attorney are crossexamining Skilling today. Berkowitz may crossexamined Skilling later today. But here are the highlights from Yahoo:

Ex-Enron CEO Skilling Reiterates Innocence

"HOUSTON - Former Chief Executive Jeffrey Skilling, back in the hands of his own lawyer after three days of cross-examination by the prosecution, reiterated his innocence Thursday on charges related to Enron Corp.'s collapse.

Skilling appeared refreshed Thursday after a grueling three days of cross-examination, from which he emerged looking tired. Skilling often simmered with tension as Berkowitz repeatedly challenged his truthfulness. He could face Berkowitz again Thursday after Petrocelli finishes questioning him a second time.

At times throughout Berkowitz's cross-examination, Skilling was prickly but held his temper. On Wednesday he bristled when Berkowitz challenged whether he mischaracterized Enron's true nature as a risky trading company, then blocked the ex-CEO from giving detailed denials.
"We're going to be here all day," a frustrated Skilling said after Berkowitz refused to let him elaborate on the nature of Enron's business and how it managed risk. "We're on fundamentally different planes here."
Several jurors smiled during the dustups, as though amused at the sparring.
The government's specific allegations include that Skilling and Lay pointedly characterized Enron as a stable company with predictable growth rather than a trading company vulnerable to market volatility because Wall Street would be more bullish on the former.
Skilling maintained Wednesday his oft-repeated stance that Enron was indifferent to wild swings in commodity prices because it was an intermediary that packaged services for commodity buyers and sellers.
"I didn't think 'trading company' reflected, in my view, what Enron was," Skilling said.
"And you were communicating that to the marketplace, correct?" Berkowitz asked.
"That's correct," the ex-CEO replied.
Berkowitz asked if investors were concerned about whether Enron made the bulk of its profits from speculative trading in markets "going crazy" in California. "Yes or no," the prosecutor demanded.
"Mr. Berkowitz, I think we tried very hard, very hard to communicate specifically the risk positions that were being taken with our business," Skilling replied. "

In other news: Fitz's buddy, Ms. Harris's poll is plummeting. Those meds are calling her name:

Poll: Nelson Holds Wide Lead in Fla. Race

Nelson was favored by 56 percent of those surveyed, compared to 27 percent who preferred Harris in the poll by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
A similar poll two months ago had Nelson ahead 53 percent to 31 percent.
"It's a tough environment for Republicans now," Harris said Wednesday when asked about the latest numbers. "I'm confident that we'll continue to only go up."

That tune is a great laugh! Thanks poster.

Today we went into our Repugs local reps office-he sent an Iraq war Vet to talk to us. He was from a company that suffered heavy losses in OH.

We all gave him our speal on the war and asked questions-we are trying to force them to debate it on the floor -well, the poor kid could see he didn't know enough to stand down facts brought to his attention.

He said he really appreciated the efforts of military families speaking against the war.

Nobody supports this war except the politicians who refuse to do anything about it-the nice young man told us they fear the Dems will "make an issue of it" and "use it for "political purposes." O-M-G!!!!

We told him to tell the boss man he is a representative and he is not representing the majority view of the voters-the people who sent him to DC to represent them. Geez, the Rove thing is GOOD NEWS! Shoulda seen how subdued that whole office was...

When did Katherine Harris have a lobotomy?
She is more deluded than the whole Bush Administration and the GOP Kool-Aid drinkers.

Blogger Special Prosecutor Biloxi said...

Ms. Harris may have had that lobotomy when she thought she had a chance to win. But, like the Gerbil Administration and the kool-aid politicans, Ms. Harris has inherit the Gerbil's strategy: jump on the wheel, run real hard, and stay the course! But, Ms. Harris' course has been altered that she doesn't a prayer to win!

Hey, I'd love to have a band and hours of studio time to pull this stuff off. But I'm just a street musician with a guitar.

You can build a parody on a single word, but it won't stick for very long. Crafting parodys is something I've done for a long time. These will have more staying power as we move toward the '06 election.

A promotion from Time reporter: Matt Cooper:

Funnyman Named Political Editor of Time.com
"Time continues to bulk up its web presence, following their hirings of blogger Andrew Sullivan and web/print columnist Ana Marie Cox. Today, Time's White House correspondent Matt Cooper was promoted to Political Editor of Time.com, Time's deputy managing editor Steve Koepp announced. The internal memo follows.
—Gabriel Sherman
From: Steve Koepp
Date: Wed, 19 Apr 2006 11:05:00 -0400
To: +TI-TM-ALL_TIME_MAGAZINE
Subject: An Announcement

I am pleased to announce that Matt Cooper will become the Political Editor of Time.com, based in Washington. Matt, who has been a TIME White House correspondent since 2003, brings to this new post his considerable experience in both the medium and the message. Online, he was an early adopter, writing analysis and humor for Slate starting way back in 1998 and since then contributing many prescient stories to Time.com. He joined the print magazine in 1999 as Deputy Washington Bureau Chief, after warming up for the post at the two other newsweeklies and writing the White House Watch column for The New Republic.
A man of many formats, Matt moonlights as a standup comedian--he was once named "Washington's Funniest Celebrity"--and shares our ambition of making Time.com a multimedia experience. In his new gig, he will split his time between writing a regular column, assigning and editing stories, and helping to develop new political features for the 2006 elections and beyond.
Please join me in congratulating Matt on his new role".

Let's see.. Cooper gets promoted, Judith "Looking for Mr. Goodbar" Miller gets dumped by NY Times, Russett still carries on a reporter, Tweety Matthews is still under fire with his GOP propaganda, Novak is in the backpocket of Faux News as a columnist, and Buckaroo McFelon gets the golden boot from the Gerbil and company!

Looks like Grove Norquist didn't pay his taxes on the first half of 2006. Tsk, Tsk, Tsk! I know I did. Why didn't you Grove? From Raw Story:

"Public records suggest that Grover Norquist, president of the conservative Americans for Tax Reform lobby group, has neglected to pay his Washington, DC property taxes for the first half of this fiscal year.

Norquist's 810 Constitution Avenue townhouse is assessed at $858,220. The District has proposed his property assessment rise to $1,009,740 for 2007."

"Norquist is an inveterate critic of government taxation and once famously declared he wanted to get goverment "down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub." Currently, his Americans for Tax Reform group is under scrutiny by the Senate Finance Committee for its role in handling money in the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal."

Now, I did some reseach into the Norquist's neglect of paying his taxes. I went to the property tax information. His parcel number on his property is 0917 0123. Here is the link to his property information. And he is example to others??? Here is the link:

More on the Hu/Geril event:

From thinkprogress:

"Instead of calling for greater freedoms, Bush acquiesced to a Chinese demand to allow no unscripted questions at the press briefing, despite standard protocol."

And my favorite: what an embarassing moment by the Gerbil. He needs to retake a history course:

China Mistakenly Called by Taiwan's Name

WASHINGTON - \
"The meeting between President Bush and Chinese President Hu Jintao began with a gaffe Thursday when an announcer referred to China by the formal name of Taiwan, which China considers a rebellious province.

As Bush and Hu stood at attention outside the White House, an announcer said, "Ladies and gentlemen, the national anthem of the Republic of China, followed by the national anthem of the United States of America."
"Republic of China" is the formal name of the island 100 miles off the Chinese mainland. China is known formally as the People's Republic of China.
Taiwan is a most delicate issue for China. Beijing claims sovereignty over the self-governing island, which split from the mainland in 1949 as civil war ended on the mainland."

There you another "Bushism" caught in the act!

Step Aside, Mr. Mollohan
House Ethics' top Democrat may have ethics issues himself. He should quit while they're sorted out.

Saturday, April 15, 2006; Page A14

FOR THE GOOD of the House, for the good of his party and in the interest -- however remote the possibility at this point -- of resolving the paralysis of the House ethics committee, the panel's ranking Democrat, West Virginia Rep. Alan B. Mollohan, should step aside while legitimate questions about his own conduct are resolved.

As detailed in recent news reports, Mr. Mollohan used his seat on the House Appropriations Committee to get earmarks directing $250 million in federal funds to five West Virginia nonprofits he helped set up. These groups paid generous salaries to Mollohan associates and former aides; one of them, the Institute for Scientific Research, paid its three top executives a total of $777,000 in 2004, according to the Wall Street Journal. Employees of the nonprofits and associated contractors also contributed generously to Mr. Mollohan's campaign committees and a Mollohan family foundation; the New York Times reported that senior employees, board members and contractors donated almost $400,000 to Mr. Mollohan's political committees over the past
