2004's Final Note from a Madman and a Madwoman
NEW YEAR'S MADMAN
BUSH WANTS A MEDAL
By giving the Medal of Freedom to Paul Bremer and George Tenet, President Bush has glorified his decision to attack Iraq and put on a pedestal two men who failed the American people just as he did. He might as well give a Medal of Freedom to himself. Maybe this is what he meant to do.
BUSH ENDORSED FORRESTER
According to President Bush, Doug Forrester's resume includes:
Sold flags door-to-door
He is a "businessman"
He doesn't like Dan Rather
Well that's good enough for me.
Doug Forrester, Mr. "HEY...I'M OVER HERE"
Hey, when is Doug Forrester going to stop saying things like?
“New Jersey is a great state with a great history and a bright future.”
As long as you aren’t the next governor, that is.
“New Jersey’s reputation is being tarnished by politicians who abuse the public trust.”
So you have met Christie Whitman.
“Political commentators are even saying that New Jersey has a high tolerance for political. corruption. That’s not true and it’s not the New Jersey I know.”
“Who are those "Political Commentators, Mr. Forrester? Sounds like a “Some people say…” moment at FOX NEWS, Doug.
“A healthy, free society requires its public officials serve the public—not themselves.”
Then why did you break campaign finance laws and give more money than is allowed to the Bush-Cheney campaign? We’re waiting for an answer, Dougie-Boy.
“It’s time that we held our government officials at all levels to this basic standard.”
Well, if we’re using you as a barometer, then that level’s gonna be pretty low. Hey… maybe YOU can even meet that level, Doug?
“Our families deserve a government they can be proud of.”
Just like when Christie Whitman left office early in 2000 and New Jersey’s citizens had a group of Republican crooks that took office. They had to resign in disgrace, remember that Doug? I didn’t hear you yelling back then Doug.
“New Jersey doesn’t need bigger government. New Jersey needs smarter government.”
Yet, as President Bush cuts Homeland Security funds to New Jersey, causing us to pick up the tab, you remain silent. Why is that Dougie-Boy? Oh yeah, I remember. You’re a big fan of the “Neglector-in-Chief”.
“ New Jersey needs a government as good as its people.”
New Jersey took the right steps when it elected a Democratic majority in their State Houses. Step one on that right track. We won’t take a step back by electing the likes of you, Mr. Forrester.
Stop the lip service, Doug.
When does the Governor Wanna-Be tell us how he plans to make New Jersey better?
FORRESTER, MONEY AND ILLEGAL STUFF
Doug Forrester and his wife, Andrea, each gave Bush $2,000, the maximum contribution for individuals. At the same time, they used a political action committee funded entirely with their own money to funnel another $2,000 to the president.
The Forresters' individual donations, combined with the money they gave to their PAC, Liberty and Prosperity, which also went to Bush, put them over the legal limit.
"If you give to another committee (PAC) with the knowledge that it's going to a specific candidate, then it will count toward your (personal) contribution."
-Larry Noble, executive director of the nonprofit Center for Responsive Politics and former general counsel to the Federal Election Commission
Perhaps you should know that, Mr. Forrester.
"If Republicans want to make an issue of wealthy Democratic Sen. Jon Corzine's money, they have to keep their own hands clean,"
-Stephen Salmore, a Fairleigh Dickinson University professor and Republican political consultant
Just like when Mr. Forrester ran against Sen. Bob Torricelli for the senator's seat (before Sen. Torricelli resigned in shame, we heard the same rhetoric then that we do now... all style and NO SUBSTANCE.
Its time for Doug Forrester to stop telling us who he isn't and start telling us who he is.
If anybody was still wondering, Bret Schundler, is still the GOP's poster boy for the Christian Coalition.
So I'm watching ESPN2 on New Year's Day. They're showing the top sports controversies of the last 25 years. Guess what number 12 is. Go on, I dare you.
John Rocker, the former relief pitcher for the Atlanta Braves speaking his mind to Sports Illustrated in December 1999.
In case you don't know the story, let me fill you in:
"I guarantee you she's a Japanese woman. "How bad are Asian women at driving?"
"I would retire first (before playing for a New York team). It's the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the [Number] 7 train to the ballpark, looking like you're [riding through] Beirut next to some kid with purple hair next to some queer with AIDS right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It's depressing."
"The biggest thing I don't like about New York are the foreigners. I'm not a very big fan of foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?"
"I talked about what degenerates they (New Yorkers) were, and they proved me right. Just by saying something, I could make them mad enough to go home and slap their moms."
He called an overweight black teammate "a fat monkey."
"I'm not a racist or prejudiced person, but certain people bother me."
John Rocker graduated with a 3.5 GPA from Presbyterian Day High in Macon, Ga., in 1993
Now, I don't know who John Rocker's choice for President, Governor or Senate was. I don't even know if John Rocker votes. But if you had to guess...
WHO DO YOU THINK JOHN ROCKER OF MACON, GA VOTED FOR?
WOW… What an endorsement that could have been.
Now, I'm not going to blame President "G"(lobal) "W"(arming) Bush for the tsunami that hit 11 countries over the Christmas weekend, or the earthquake that caused it. Everything bad that happens to the world is not necessarily the fault of the Bush Administration and the Corporate Communists that they work for.
Maybe "G"(lobal) "W"(arming) Bush is just bad luck.
If President Bush is truly a messenger from GOD, maybe the messenger comes in the form of the Angel of Death?
Today's Stupid Quote
"We (both) married above ourselves."
-President "G"(lobal) "W"(arming Bush on many occasions to various political opponents and captive audiences.
If a woman who killed her ex-boyfriend (Laura Bush), supposedly while operating a motor vehicle, suspecting she is pregnant by that 17-year-old ex- boyfriend who just broke up with her, while she is in a drunken, angry stupor, is "marrying above oneself," than what is "marrying below oneself?"
