LEFTY LOUISE SAYS WHO ARE THESE GUYS? They Don’t Speak for Me.LIEBERMAN says Judge John Roberts is “not one, as far as we know now, that has a record that in any sense can be described as extremist."
Hey, Senator Dumbass Who I Can’t Believe Is a Democrat, get pregnant and live with Roberts’ wife’s views on abortion and what Roberts says about doctors not even being allowed to tell women about them and then come back and tell me who is extremist!
And Senator Ben Nelson? You said WHAT about Roberts? "Everybody ought to cool their jets on this and let the process work . . . . Going in, it looks good"
Yo, Ben, maybe the reason it doesn’t look good to me is this thing about cooling my jets. Women don’t have “jets.” But we do have dorks who we think will represent the fiftyone percent of the population without jets. So start acting like it.
AN UNCAPITALIST SAMPLER [TEAGARDEN/CN TODD]If you have been following the news, you probably know that the future
of India’s tea workers now remains uncertain. You probably also know
that in the past 3 days approximately half a million tea workers
in India’s province of West Bengal have been on strike, crippling the
tea industry in the region, including the famous district of Darjeeling.
[A VENEZUELAN RADIO MARTI/RICHARD BLAIR] How can the U.S. House of Representatives vote to create a broadcast
propaganda outlet aimed directly at destabilizing a country -
particularly one with which the U.S. has diplomatic relations (however
strained) and interconnected economic interests?
[THE SPECTRE STILL HAUNTS/SHANE KENYON]
Tony Saunois (CWI Secretary, London) reported on Monday, July 18th
that a nationwide poll in Britain asked the question "who is the
greatest philosopher of all time." Thankfully George Bush was unable to
vote in the poll given that his answer to this oft posed question is
always "Jesus." Despite significant media pressure by major news
outlets including the lofty Economist magazine, all calling for the
likes of Adam Smith or David Hume (come on - are these guys actually
"philosophers"?), the polls came in overwhelmingly for none other than Karl Marx, winning 28% of the vote.

Hello to All Seven of My Readers, Betty Blogger would like you to know that I call you my magificent seven. Without you, I would be nothing. Or less than nothing. Which is kind of how Joe Lieberman leaves this left leaning lady feeling. Get a load of this bit in The New Yorker.
Lieberman is a study in the dangers of steroidal muscularity, becoming an outlier in his own party. He has edged to the right as his running mate in the 2000 election, Al Gore, has moved leftward. His fate was sealed with a kiss, planted on his cheek by Bush, just after the President delivered his State of the Union address. “That may have been the last straw for some of the people in Connecticut, the blogger types,” Lieberman told me. But he is unapologetic about his defense of Bush’s Iraq policy, saying, “Bottom line, I think Bush has it right.” When I asked if he was becoming a neoconservative, Lieberman smiled and said, “No, but some of my best friends are neocons.” .......................
