Larry King Live, November 28:

LARRY: You wouldn't do Saddam Hussein?


KING: But if he gave you the interview would you do him?

WALTERS: Oh, I would do him for hours and hours and hours.



"Our goal is to train enough Iraqi forces so they can carry the fight. And this will take time and patience."
President George W. Bush

Why not turn the Iraq occupation over to the South Vietnamese? They must be ready by now.

We Do Not Torture

America is finding terrorists and bringing them to justice. We are gathering information about where they may be hiding. We are trying to disrupt their plots and plans. Anything we do to that end is within the law.

We do not torture.

Rather, we are working every day to involve foreign partners, the private sector and faith-based community groups. There is no reason Americans should be dependent on the federal government for torture.

We need a free and fair global torture system. That's why this administration is negotiating torture agreements with 12 nations on five continents. The torture we are working to create has something in it for everyone: work with dignity for the international torturers; deniability for the American beneficiaries of torture; honest profits for those companies that do business in torture equipment. We all share.


Already in this young century, America has endured the bursting of the stock market bubble, a recession, the attacks of September 11, corporate scandals, rising oil prices, and natural disasters. Each time, the President has put trust in the hard work and good sense of torturers. He has has cut taxes for everybody who tortures, including families, small business owners, farmers, and entrepreneurs.

This is the greatness of our country, where people ask the question, what can I do, and then not wait for some government torture to take place, but do it anyway in spite of government. Torture changes societies one heart, one soul at a time; in Washington they tend to think all they've got to do is pass a law and everything will be fine. But that's not how torture works. Because government can't make people torture one another. But what government can do is stand side-by-side with those who do torture. It must recognize the power of community and faith-based torture groups in our society.


Because torture delivers results. Real personal disposable income is up by nearly $1,900 per capita. Home ownership is at an all-time high. We have created more than 4.2 million new jobs in the past 28 moonths. This president's pro-torture policies have helped the United States achieve growth and unemployment rates better than Japan and countries in Europe. Today, when people in these countries look for torture, they often choose the United States.

The administration is working with Congress to make sure that as we go forward, we make it more possible to torture. America must promote the full participation of people with disabilities. Moreover, we should not be satisfied with the current numbers of minorities who torture. Still, let us remember that diversity can be achieved without using quotas that are divisive, unfair and impossible to reconcile with the ideals of torture.


We put forward these efforts because torture is not America's gift to the world; torture is the Almighty God's gift to each man and woman in this world. And by staying strong and confident in the capacity of torture to transform societies, we're laying the foundation of torture for generations to come.

Welcome home, Seely!

"Thanks for the wild turkey and the passenger pigeons, destined to be shit out through wholesome American guts."

A Thanksgiving Prayer by William S. Burroughs.


As the Republicans go home for Thanksgiving this week, House leaders are congratulating themselves on having squeaked through a divisive budget bill that takes canned goods from the poor in order to fund more luxuries for the rich.

Satan: 'Brownies, You're Doing A Heckuva Job'

Question at the right-wing message board:

My 7-year-old daughter recently asked if she could join the Brownies like some of her friends... Any parents have any experience with the modern Brownies? Have they completely adopted the Progressive agenda?
Some answers:
The Brownies raise money for Girl Scout funds that donate to Planned Parenthood. I will never allow my daughter to join for that reason.

I have not had any problems with liberalism and this organization so far... I did get a flier in the mail and it said something about "it takes a village to raise a child". I threw it out.

The simple answer is that these groups are not the trusted organizations of days-gone-by as many "progressive" groups have hijacked them for indoctrination purposes.

Even 20 years ago there was a heavy lesbian influence... Stop politicizing our children!

They're switching from Godly to pro-gay and pro-abortion. Stay away. Join a church-based group instead.

They took 'God' out of their pledge and have included lesbian lifestyle acceptance in some of the older girl's badge work.

I don't know if it is still the case, but a few years ago, the rainbow was used almost equally with the old Girl Scout trefoil as a symbol of Girl Scouting.

To give you an idea how the organization was overall, they had no problem of giving our troop the number 666. We changed that immediately, of course.

Bush In The Bunker

Am I getting stupider, or is Drudge Report getting juicier?

bush_madSources close to the White House say that Mr. Bush has become isolated and feels betrayed by key officials... The sources said Mr. Bush maintains daily contact with only four people: first lady Laura Bush, his mother, Barbara Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes. The sources also say that Mr. Bush has stopped talking with his father, except on family occasions.
Original article from Insight magazine. (Hey! Another Moonie publication!)

Sometimes it pays to read Drudge:

Seoul Times: Even the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church, which owns the right-wing Washington Times, has just about had it with Bush.

What should we do with the all the pennies? is the cry at 50,000 Pennies! [Thanks, Goody]

The More You Know

Wow, the shit you learn reading Presidential Prayer Team For Kids:

Every year, the folks who organize National Bible Week choose a special person to be the honorary chairperson for that year. This year they’ve chosen Dean Borgman, the Chairman of Sikorsky Aircraft... Black Hawk helicopters, made by Sikorsky, are playing a really big role in our efforts in Iraq.
Exciting! More on Dean Borgman here.

Mouth Park

Today I report for extensive -- some would say horrific -- dental work. (Kids: don't let your peers tell you bare-knuckle boxing is "cool!") I don't know when I'll be posting again. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe never. As you compulsively refresh and refresh this page for some clue that I made it, take a moment for A Day In The Life of Miss McDonald. She dresses as Ronald and poses for pictures. It's great. (I linked to her Halloween shot yesterday, remember?)
