Big Dan's Big News May 9, 2008

Only a Republican would say something this stupid!

New net neutrality bill introduced; let's see if the fascist Republicans vote for US, or BIG BUSINESS! This vote will tell you once and for all whose side the Republicans are on!

Democrats' plans to help hundreds of thousands of homeowners struggling with rising subprime mortgage rates and plummeting house values could be sidetracked by President Bush's threatened veto and the backing of many congressional Republicans. Republicans and Bush had no problem using $30 billion of your money to bail out Bear Stearns, though! Republicans consistently show they are AGAINST YOU, and FOR big business!

Some of the nation’s largest pharmaceutical companies defended their TV advertisements Thursday from Democrats pushing for tougher marketing restrictions. Executives from Pfizer Inc., Johnson & Johnson and a joint venture of Merck and Schering Plough testified before House lawmakers on three discontinued advertisements. All three promotions were criticized by Democrats as potentially misleading consumers.

Republican Senator David Vitter of Louisiana, who admitted committing adultery by fucking one of the DC Madam's prostitutes, is happy that judge dismissed ethics complaint about him. The DC Madam was found dead, hanging in a shed this week...btw...HEY! Isn't that ironic? That both things happened in the same week?

An ethics complaint against Senator David Vitter (R-LA) filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington has been dismissed without prejudice today. The complaint, submitted to the Committee on July 19, 2007, requested that it conduct an investigation into whether Sen. Vitter violated Senate rules by seeking the services of Pamela Martin and Associates, the escort service run by the late Deborah Jeane Palfrey, better known as the "DC Madam."

Below: Vitter on coast-to-coast frown-a-rama mercy tour with his wife, who found out he was fucking the DC Madam's hookers. I think he either said, "Jesus forgave me", or committed himself to alcohol rehab...I forget which one. OOPS! That was Republican Mark Foley who molested pageboys in congress, who committed himself to alcohol rehab...sorry! Gay Republicans commit themselves to alcohol rehab and Straight Republicans say "Jesus forgave them"...GOT IT!!!!!! Meanwhile, Republican Larry Craig is still playing "gay footsie morse code" in the men's room airports......


Cusack slams corporate media, talks up new movie 'War, Inc.' in wide-ranging interview

Official site for the movie, 'War, Inc.'


Hillary says: "I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on,' she said in an interview with USA Today. As evidence, Clinton cited an Associated Press article 'that found how Sen. Obama's support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states (those voting in Tuesday's Indiana and North Carolina primaries) who had not completed college were supporting me."

"There's a pattern emerging here," she said.

Big Dan: "Obama is in the unenviable position of mathematically not being able to lose to Hillary?"


Cindy McCain will not release her tax returns. During the 2004 Bush-Kerry election, corporate media/rightwing pundits & websites/Republicans cried and cried for Teresa Heinz Kerry to release her tax returns! They are silent about Cindy McCain not releasing her tax returns!

Wash. Post, WSJ editorial pages urged release of tax returns by Teresa Heinz Kerry, but have yet to call for Cindy McCain's. Summary: In 2004, the editorial pages of The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal called on Teresa Heinz Kerry to release her tax returns. But both have yet to call on Sen. John McCain's campaign to release Cindy McCain's tax returns or even note that the campaign has refused to do so.
