Coulter: "Isn't it great to see Muslims celebrating something other than the slaughter of Americans?"
After lauding the elections in Iraq as "one of the grandest events in the history of the world" in her February 3 nationally syndicated column, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter cited reports of Iraqis celebrating in the streets on election day and added parenthetically: "Isn't it great to see Muslims celebrating something other than the slaughter of Americans?"
Coulter's comment came after she quoted Senator John Kerry from his January 30 appearance on NBC's Meet the Press, in which he said, "No one in the United States should try to overhype this election." Coulter wrote: "Apparently, word didn't get out to the Iraqis, who were dancing and singing in the streets. (Isn't it great to see Muslims celebrating something other than the slaughter of Americans?)"
Coulter's February 3 comment is the latest in a string of anti-Muslim remarks. For example:
* From the October 4, 2004, edition of FOX News Channel's Hannity and Colmes:
ALAN COLMES (co-host): Would you like to convert these people [Muslims] all to Christianity?
COULTER: The ones that we haven't killed, yes.
COLMES: So no one should be Muslim. They should all be Christian?
COULTER: That would be a good start, yes.
* From Coulter's April 28, 2004, nationally syndicated column:
Like many of you, I carefully reviewed the lawsuits against the airlines in order to determine which airlines had engaged in the most egregious discrimination, so I could fly only that airline. But oddly, rather than bragging about the charges, the airlines heatedly denied discriminating against Middle Eastern passengers. What a wasted marketing opportunity! Imagine the great slogans the airlines could use:
"Now Frisking All Arabs -- Twice!"
"More Civil-Rights Lawsuits Brought by Arabs Than Any Other Airline!"
"The Friendly Skies -- Unless You're an Arab"
"You Are Now Free to Move About the Cabin -- Not So Fast, Mohammed!"
* From Coulter's September 13, 2001, National Review column, which resulted in her being fired:
"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war."

hello? anybody out there? are all other democrats but me dead? i suspected as such. i know it's depressing, starting out another bush term. but indolence is what got the democrats down to begin with. we used to run the shit, now we're more like a travelling celebrity circus that's out of town during the 3 1/2 years between elections. look at the conservatives. they've done well. they're out there unapologetically thumping and marching and bitching their agenda forward. too bad their agenda is pure evil. we can't stop now. we stop now, we loose again in 4 years.
so in that spirit: off our asses and back to the drawing board!

1) KERRY REDUX? |
first dial this number: (617) 367-1551.
go ahead. dial it. don't be afraid; you'll be directed to the voicemail greeting at john kerry's headquarters in boston. but pay attention to the last thing the lady on the tape says": "we look forward to seeing you again in 2008."
so special K is coming back! ROCK!
2) PRANK THE PREZ?
then dial this number: (202) 456-1414.
it's the whitehouse. sho nuf. no shit. a lady usually answers and says "hello, whitehouse". it's completely frightening. it's not even a taped message, which is unexpected. you can actually talk to people in the whitehouse, 24/7. however, i've never had a friend call it who didn't throw the phone down as soon as the secretary answers. it's chilling.
no, there is no mature or purpose in my giving you these phone numbers. the first is hopeful and the second is just frightening. enjoy.
|» could YOUR child turn into a homosexual sponge? protect your family!|
the following article is not a joke:|

There's something fishy about Sponge Bob SquarePants.
Some conservative Christian groups are sure of it, and they're making waves.
For one thing, SpongeBob is mighty chirpy as he flits around the streets of Bikini Bottom. He's been spotted holding hands with his friend, Patrick, and likes to watch the show "The Adventures of Mermaidman and Barnacleboy." Aaaaaand he vacuums and cooks. He is so masterful at the grill that he whips up the Krabby Patty faster than you can say Squidward Tentacles. Of course, there's one other little detail about SpongeBob: he's a cartoon. As in animated. As in not real.
That doesn't deter conservative leaders like Dr. James Dobson from pointing his finger at Nickelodeon's porous little guy and accusing him of being an absorbent propagandist for the homosexual agenda.
SpongeBob is out to brainwash America's children, Dobson warns. Before you know it, children watching him cavort with his pet snail will squeal, "Oh tartar sauce, I too am a homosexual sponge!" Dobson denounced the sponge at a black-tie dinner in Washington D.C.. He was worked up about a new video where SpongeBob, along with other children's characters Barney, Winnie the Pooh, and Kermit the Frog, sing and dance to the song "We Are Family."
The video will be mailed to 61,000 schools to affirm diversity - that's a code word, Dobson said. It's "a pro-homosexual video."
Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council agreed. "This is being used as propaganda to indoctrinate children to accept a different definition of family," said Spriggs. In this video, Sesame Street's The Count identified family as 89 sisters, 13 cousins, 7 uncles, 14 grandmothers, 15 grandfathers, 261 friends and 1 cousin 5 times removed. He didn't identify them by sexual preference, but then puppets seldom have sex.
There are others, though, who are fascinated with who is sleeping with whom. Which is why everyone from The New York Times to the "Today" show is publicizing attacks on SpongeBob's sexuality.
I repeat: He is not gay. SpongeBob has a girlfriend. Her name is Sandy, a squirrel with a Texas twang. He went several minutes without water so he could woo Sandy in her hermetically sealed bubble under the sea. "Water is for sissies," he chanted as his face shriveled. "Water is for sissies."
Is that a man's man or what?
|» no WMD. [seriously.]|
With little fanfare, Charles Duelfer and his 'Iraq Survey Group', have returned home empty-handed.
Because there are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
Know someone who died looking for them? Oops!
Duelfer ended the official search, citing not only did Iraq not have weapons at the time of the US invasion, but that Iraq has not had weapons since the Gulf War, nor was Iraq capable of acquiring such weapons even if it wanted to. The CIA confirmed that Duelfer has completed the official US search and will not be replaced.
What a waste.
Despite the whole weapons fuck-up, the Iraq invasion puts the Bush administration in control of the world's second largest producer of oil. As the main contracting company in the middle of a country that now needs re-building, Halliburton [run by Dick Cheney] stands to make billions from the war.
How fucking convenient this all is. There can no longer be any question that we were misled.
Sen. John Kerry is collecting signatures to petition the Senate to fire Donald Rumsfeld. This is not some silly online petition; Kerry is using the number of signatures to bolster his arguement to the Senate. So please go here to add your name to the list:

an open letter from michael moore to the U.S. senate:
Tuesday, January 4th, 2005
Dear Members of the U.S. Senate,
Welcome back! The 109th session of Congress has just begun. I'm watching you on C-SPAN right now and you all look so snap-happy and clean-faced. It's like the first day of school all over again, isn't it?
I have a favor to ask of you. Something isn't right with the vote from Ohio. Seems a lot of people didn't get to vote. And those who did, thousands of theirs weren't counted.
Does that seem right to you? I'm just asking. Forget about partisan politics for a moment and ask yourself if there is a more basic right, in a democracy, than the right of the people to vote AND have ALL their votes counted.
Now, I know a lot of you wish this little problem of Ohio would just go away. And many of you who wish this are Democrats. You just want to move on (no pun intended!). I can't say I blame you. It's rough to lose two elections in a row when the first one you actually won and the second one you should have won. And it seems this time around, about 3 million more Americans preferred to continue the war in Iraq and give the rich more tax breaks than those who didn't. No sense living in denial about that.
But something isn't right in Ohio and more than a dozen members of the House of Representatives believe it is worth investigating.
So on Thursday at 1:00pm, Rep. John Conyers of Detroit will rise and object to the vote count in Ohio. According to the laws of this land, he will not be allowed to speak unless at least one of you -- one member of the United States Senate -- agrees to let him have the floor.
A very embarrassing moment during the last session of Congress occurred in the first week when none of you would allow the members of Congress who were black to have the floor to object to the Florida vote count. Remember that? You thought no one would ever notice, didn't you? You certainly lucked out that night when the networks decided not to show how you shut down every single member of the Congressional Black Caucus.
No such luck this year. Everyone now knows about that moment of shame. Thank you? You’re welcome.
But this Thursday, at 1:00pm, you will have a chance to redeem yourself.
Congressman Conyers and a dozen other members of Congress have some serious questions about how the Republican secretary of Ohio (who was also the state’s co-chair of Bush’s reelection campaign) conducted the election on November 2. The list of possible offenses of how voters were denied access to the polls and how over a hundred thousand of their votes have yet to be counted is more than worthy of your consideration. It may not change the outcome, but you have a supreme responsibility to make sure that EVERY vote is counted. Who amongst you would disagree with that?
C'mon Senators! Especially you Democrats. Here is your one shining moment of courage. Will you allow the gavel to come down on our black members of Congress once again? Or will you stand up for their right to object?
We will all be watching.
P.S. My whereabouts this week: I will be on the Today Show Thursday morning, Jay Leno on Friday night. And... the People's Choice Awards are this Sunday night, live on CBS at 9pm! Can we defeat the superheroes Spiderman, Incredibles and Shrek for best picture? A documentary??? Whoa... tune in...
