A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Question: Should diplomacy and fence-mending be done by someone who can't even gets verbs and subjects to agree?
President Bush: I got a mandate; 51% of my subjects agree!
Question: Mr. Bush, your No Child Left Behind is drawing critics from both sides of the political spectrum. How will you convince them that your ideas for reforming public education should continue since you yourself attended prep schools and Ivy League Colleges and have little or no personal experience with the public school system othen than marrying a woman who spent 2 years as a school librarian and 20 years talking about it?
President Bush: I think it's unfair to denigrate librarians, prep schools and especially Ivy League colleges by pointing out their failures.
Question: It's been noted that unless you're reading from a scripted speech, you're all but incoherent. That hypcocrisy and irony are totally lost on you. Do you attribute that to the effects of long-term alcohol abuse or the use of illicit drugs like cocaine and marijuana?
President Bush: I don't think you should denigrate reformed alcoholics who may or may not be "dry drunks." Besides, I found Jesus. I mean I found that finding Jesus should excuse all my past behavior. Not like that draft-dodging, dope-smoking, fellatio-recipient Clinton.
Question: The mainstream media has all but ignored the story about Jeff Gannon, the so-called journalist with at best dubious credentials, who somehow managed to get into one of your rare press conferences, and somehow managed to be called upon to ask a question, and somehow lobbed a slow, softball question right into your rhetorical strike zone. Do you have anything to say about this.
President Bush: Yes, thank you. The check is in the mail.
Thanks John For Cleaning Up New Orleans
A MUST READ ARTICLE BY THE NASHUA ADVOCATE
In order to deduct mileage on your tax return, you're required to keep a log of the miles from starting point to destination and back and the trip must be for a particular purpose which the government deems as permissible. If you don't keep such a log, you may lose the deduction during an audit.
Misplace $9,000,000,000 (nine-billion dollars) in Iraq, and you don't even have to memorialize it on a friggin post-it. In fact, you might even get a medal.

How do you separate the fake journalists from the White House?
With a crowbar.
Wednesday, February 23, 2005
I will use www.nchp-1.blogspot.com for longer articles and opinion pieces and will set up a permanent link in the righthand sidebar. If I can ever figure out HTML mark-up language, I'll attempt to link the secondary page directly to the primary page rant. Like waiting for MSM to do their jobs, don't held your breath.
The FBI reported today that Jeff Gannon/Jim Guckert/BullDog was planted in the White House Press Corps for nefarious purposes. They named as their prime suspect Richard Jewell.

If Gary Condit had been given this much slack by the late night hosts, he’d probably still be a Congressman.
Seriously, what is going on here? This story has so much comedic grist, it should be flowing like lies from Rice.
Instead, we get stale Clinton jokes...
Monday, February 21, 2005
Oddly enough, Bill Maher with the help of Robin Williams, Leslie Stahl, and Joe Biden have shown the comedic potential in the story of Jim/Jeff as well as the underlying seriousness of his White House access and apparent access to “scoops” major media did not have.
Unless I’ve just missed them; there have been no jokes by Jay Leno who did a Clinton blow-job joke just last week after this story broke, no jokes by David Letterman who has told some variation of a Clinton blow-job joke almost nightly for over 6 years, no skit on Saturday Night Live or comment during the Weekend Update segment.
I remember when Letterman jumped on the Kerry intern story with both feet before any substantiation had been offered. So please don't tell me they're waiting to find out the truth before they begin their comedic barrage.
The question must be posed: Are these comedic avenues being subjected to some sort of corporate-imposed censorship? If not, explain why such "ripe" material isn't being used.
Unfortunately, humor helps shape perceptions and Leno and Letterman have some influence on the political landscape. Just ask Arnold.
Less we not forget about media manipulation and perception management, remember the RNC Astroturf Campaign.

Memo: From Karl Rove to Andrea Mitchell
re: Hillary Clinton
Andrea, it is important that we frame Hillary Clinton as a self-serving politician whose motives for positions she takes are calculated for her own political future and not for the good of the country. It is important to “suggest” this subtly until such time as this premise is accepted as legitimate and we get others on board. As always, we appreciate the assistance you and Alan have provided in protecting dumbass from himself.
From Meet the Press:
MR. RUSSERT: Andrea Mitchell, you heard Hillary Clinton say that we should not have a withdrawal of troops at this time. There should not be a timetable, that that would be a green light to the terrorists, totally separating herself from Ted Kennedy and other Democrats; quite striking.
MS. ANDREA MITCHELL: Very striking. Hillary Clinton, since she joined the Armed Services Committee, which was her choice and what she wanted when she went to the Senate, has positioned herself very smartly for other own political future, both in '06 and potentially '08. And she has made herself very much a moderate Democratic voice on these defense issues. She spent a lot of time with the military in New York state, but she's also been a couple of times to Baghdad, and she, today, in your interview, very clearly said that we should not be withdrawing, we should not be sending those signals to the insurgency and she is very cautious about positioning herself in the middle of this political spectrum.
Amazingly, Timbo didn't have such a discussion about John McCain's positions and potential posturing for 2008.

Porter Goss, head of Homeland Security, spoke today about the inevitability of another terror strike on American soil as long as incompetent people are in charge. This latest warning came as there was “increased chatter” about Bush’s approval rating falling below 50% and amid rumblings about a major homosexual sex scandal brewing within the propaganda arm of the administration.
Scott McClellan, White House butt-boy, said that despite the urgency of these terror warnings, the president would continue his efforts to create a crisis out of whole cloth on Social Security.
Condoleeza Rice continues to tell other countries what they have to do in order to remain in the good graces of the major American oil companies and the Carlyle Group. All the while, alliances are being formed throughout the world to counter the threat they perceive is posed by the unbridled aggressive posturing of a nation whose foreign policy is dominated by hard-line chickenhawks.
President Bush once again declared he will exhaust all diplomatic options before considering military action against Iran citing the fact that Iran actually has the capability to fight back as a major obstacle. As a result, recruitment numbers for all branches of the military plummeted and many expect this means a military draft is all but certain.
Now that the election is over, the White House has only limited need for the loyalty oaths which American citizens had to sign in order to attend a Bush/Cheney campaign rally. An enterprising “young staffer” has suggested that perhaps the oaths could be used to determine “who is a journalist and who isn’t” when they seek a White House press pass since they seem to be having some difficulty in this area. The normally complacent White House press members, accepted the new provisions with a new found sense of apathy and lauded the administration for its "straight" talk and boldness in dealing with this issue. As usual, all perceptions of irony were negated by warmth one feels when getting a presidential nickname.

Perle was forced by one of the questioners to recast a comment he made on Sept. 22, 2003, in which he predicted that within one year, there would be "a grand square in Baghdad named for President Bush."
"I'd be a fool not to recognize that it did not happen on the schedule I had in mind," Perle said, adding that he did not deny that the administration had made mistakes in Iraq.
But, Perle added, "I will be surprised, yet again, if we do not see a square in Baghdad named after this president." He did not specify a time.
Do you have an idea of what to name this "grand square?" If so, leave a comment. None of my ideas are fit to print...
Okay how about: "Maul of America" or "False Pretense Plaza"
Henry Waxman reportedly has requested an unredacted copy of the 9/11 Commission Report because of the "inconsistent" testimony of Rice and the obvious politically motivated delay in releasing the report.
While they're at it, how about requesting an unredacted copy of the Iraqi Weapons Declaration which hasn't seen the light of day and we only have "their word" for it that Saddam refused to disclose his weapons program, or lack there of, as the case may be.
I'm Shocked. As one of the owners of the Texas Rangers, GWB was oblivious to the "alleged" rampant use of steroids by the players. Of course, winning "fair and square" is for sissies. Besides, did you see how "cut" these guys get?

Ahmed Chalabi who?
Jim Guckert who?
Oh PLEASE! This kind of denial can only cause more suspicion because it simply doesn't pass as plausible especially when today GWB is calling on reporters by name and knows which organizations they work for.
Even at the now infamous press conference where Gannon asked his "divorced from reality" question, GWB was welcoming a newcomer to the group displaying once again that unhealthy sense of familiarity between the press corps and GWB.
First of all, I want to thank Nightline in particular and major media in general for refusing to cover this scandal. The reason I want to single out Nightline is because so far we've had reports on traffic jams and Prince Charles' upcoming wedding. First of all, traffic congestion is not news. Secondly, I personally couldn't care much less about the British Royal Family. Why MSM insists on elevating stories about a figurehead monarchy is beyond me. Anyway, ABC in the last few weeks, has taken an obvious pro-Bush tact from their Iraq election coverage to aiding in this coverup.
It's been reported that Jeff Gannon was present at a White House press briefing nearly a month before Talon News' immaculate conception.
So, when did Jim/Jeff first apply for a press pass to the House and the Senate? The answer to this has some significant implications if the first request was after his first appearance at the White House given what has been stated so far as the White House policy for determining admittance.
Seriously, everyone gets signed in and out. Where's the record. Hopefully, it's not on microfiche somewhere in Colorado.
Anyone still think this White House is beyond "setting up" Dan Rather?
Today, again exhibiting why Q & A sessions are kept to a minimum, GWB made a comment about one of the reporters being "perfect for radio," an obvious put down of the man's looks. What with the comments about Scott Reid and John Edwards, it seems there is a preoccupation with how other men look. Couple that with his affinity for bald heads...

How long will the mainstream media ignore this story? Too busy talking about steroids I guess.
Fox News Hires Dan Senor as Consultant:
- Worked under Scott McClellan at White House
- Covered up Bremer's Incompetence at CPA
- Ties to Carlyle Group
- Looks Gay
Did You Notice Department:
Rush Limbaugh was able to overcome his chronic back pain and play golf in the AT&T Pro/Am at Pebble Beach over the weekend. How nice for him...
PTP: Shouldn't an approval rating of below 50% be called a disapproval rating?
PTP: Are all the criminal complaints against high-profile conservatives being strung out so that GWB can pardon them in the last year of his presidency without dealing with the political fallout?
Oddly enough, the same year I missed all that guard duty, Deliverance was nominated for Best Picture.
Seems "Team Talon" systematically posts bios which sound good, but offer up no substance. For instance, even before I was in high school, I exemplified the American entrepreneurial spirit, unlike the French, who don't even have a word for "entrepreneur." I was in charge of a delivery system for a major local publication. My duties included product procurement and packaging. I was soley responsible for acquiring and maintaining the transportation system used to complete the delivery duties. Like my counterparts in the postal service, I had to brave all sorts of inclimate weather in the service of my customers. Finally, I met with my customers once a month to settle their accounts. In fact, I received an award and a certificate of acheivement based on customer satisfaction. I've always been proud of being "Carrier of the Month."
