Big Dan's Big News Mar 30, 2008

Above: Kindly old man, 72-yr-old John "3rd term of Bush" McCain, George W. Bush's hand-picked successor...poised to steal the 2008 election from Barack Obama...continues to get a HUGE pass from the corporate-controlled media. The corporate media used the "Obama's pastor" story as a test, for when they REALLY "SwiftBoat" him!

The Top Ten Craziest Things John McCain Has Said While You (bd: Should say, while "corporate media" was purposely not covering...) Weren't Watching. Much of McCain's madness has been lost in the fog of the ongoing battle for the Democratic nomination -- so here's a recap of what you've missed.

Among them:

1. And finally, McCain's craziest, coolest, most unstoppable McCain Moment: The senator said, while in Jordan, that it was "common knowledge and has been reported in the media that al-Qaeda is going back into Iran and receiving training and are coming back into Iraq from Iran, that's well known. And it's unfortunate." A few moments later, Sen. Joseph Lieberman, admiringly gazing at McCain until that moment, stepped up and whispered something in the presidential candidate's ear. McCain then blurted out: "I'm sorry, the Iranians are training extremists, not al-Qaeda."

Phew. Glad trusty Joe Lieberman was there to explain to the man of "experience," a man who wants to lead the free world, that Sunnis (Al Qaeda) and Shia (Iran) not only don't work together but are in direct conflict. We have only been at war there for five years, so I wouldn't expect Sen. McCain to concern himself with such trivial matters.

Special commentary by Big Dan: "John McCain will not be held accountable for anything by the corporate-controlled media ANBCBSNNX. Furthermore, this has not, and will not, be pointed out."

Fox’s Chris Wallace Echoes White House Spin, Claims Basra Violence Is ‘Good News’

See my other post, for the "original" White House spin!

Thie LIES about the Iraq War continue, from Gen. Petraus, who's a Republican politician with a uniform on:

TIME: Despite having been initiated by the Iraqi government, the offensive by Iraqi security forces against militiamen in Basra is increasingly drawing in the United States, both militarily and politically. U.S. air power was used in the key port city for the first time on Thursday night in support of Iraqi forces trying to dislodge fighters of Moqtada Sadr’s Mahdi Army, and U.S. troops clashed with Mahdi Army militants in the Baghdad neighborhood of Sadr City on Friday. Despite this U.S. involvement, the Washington Post notes that in September, when lawmakers asked Gen. David Petraeus about the increasing violence amongst Shiite groups in Basra, Petraeus replied it was an “Iraqi problem” with an “Iraqi solution.”

BAGHDAD (AP) - U.S. jets widened the bombing of Basra on Saturday, dropping two precision-guided bombs on a suspected militia stronghold north of the city, British officials said. (bd: Call me crazy, but wasn't there just a "PR" blitz telling us "the surge is working"? Do they think we're stupid?).

Shiite Militias Cling to Swaths of Basra and Stage Raids

How about THIS "chestnut":

Psssssst…..our U.S. embassy in the "secure" Green Zone in Baghdad is under attack!!! "...ordering all employees to sleep inside reinforced structures and to use only armored vehicles when traveling in the Green Zone due to incoming rocket fire." (bd: "the surge" is going great!)

BD: This is entering our 6th year of the war! 3 TRILLION of our tax dollars and countless lives later!!!

Desperate for money to rebuild, you engage in a frustrating bureaucratic process, and after months of living in a government provided-trailer that gives off formaldehyde fumes you finally win a federal grant. Then a collector announces that you have to pay back thousands of dollars. Thousands of Katrina victims may be in the same boat.

Outrage and Controversy at NY Museum Art Show Depicting Police Brutality

While I was digging through the Net looking for the skinny on Sequoia Voting Systems and its mystery contractor Kwaidan Consulting (aka Mike Gibbons), the Bradblog's Brad Friedman was doing the same. He managed to unearth a cached version of Gibbons' MySpace page that's just a wee bit different than the current model. Instead of a photo of Gibbons shaking hands with Bush I, this one shows a good-old-boy leaning against the hood of a pickup. The list of people Gibbons wants to meet has changed too. Instead of Jesus, Einstein, and Newton, Gibbons was looking for “a well endowed blonde nymphomaniac ... that likes to be under the influence of Jim Beam whiskey in a dimly lit room at least 3 times a week.” (Hmm, Jesus or a busty nymphomaniac – that's a tough call.) It's nice to know the gatekeepers of our electoral system go shopping for their code experts in New Orleans bordellos.
