Battle For Middle Earth

War has broken out in Middle Earth among evil Sauron’s minions. Gollum (James Carville) is attacking the Orc Leader (Howard Dean). Carville has broken out the Rumsfeldian Club from its secret hiding chamber and is proceeding to hack away at Dean. Stay tuned as Frodo (George Bush) tries to stop tripping over his hairy little feet on the way to Mordor (Iraq) with Sam (Dick Cheney) at his side.

Carville Says Dems Should Dump Dean over “Rumsfeldian” Incompetence
( - Wednesday, November 15, 2006, 12:00 PM

Democratic strategist James Carville says his party should dump Howard Dean as chairman of the Democratic Party because of incompetence. Carville, during coffee and rolls with political reporters today, said Democrats could have picked up as many as 50 House seats, instead of the nearly 30 they have so far.

The reason they didn’t, he said, is the Democratic National Committee did not spend some $6 million it could have put into so-called “third tier” House races against vulnerable Republicans.

Carville said the other Democratic campaign committees had borrowed to the hilt. He said he tried to meet with Dean to argue for additional spending for Democrats in the final days of the campaign, but Dean declined and gave no reason why.

Asked by a reporter whether Dean should be dumped, Carville replied, “In a word, do I think? Yes.” He added, “I think he should be held accountable.” He added, “I would describe his leadership as Rumsfeldian in its competence.”

Carville likened the Democratic takeover of Congress to the civil war battle at Gettysburg, which the Union army won but failed to pursue the Confederate army when it retreated. “We should have chased them down,” Carville said. There was no immediate response from Dean or the DNC.

Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day (so far)

If you ask me, this goober is gettin’ closer and closer every day to actually confessing to the murders. Give him time. His conscience will eventually get the better of him ... if he doesn’t go stark, raving mad first. Then again, maybe he is already looney-tunes. I’d put money on it ...

O.J. Simpson To Promote “If I Did It” On Fox
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Tue Nov 14, 2006 11:06pm ET162

imageimageFox said Tuesday it will air a two-part interview with O.J. Simpson at month’s end in which he describes the 1994 murders of his ex-wife and her friend that he says he didn’t commit.

The interview will be conducted by editor and book publisher Judith Regan. On November 30, her Regan Books is publishing a book Simpson wrote with the working title “If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened.”

Fox said Simpson’s book “hypothetically describes” how he would have committed the murders. The special will air at 9 p.m. November 27 and 29 on Fox.

Fox executives declined comment about the show Tuesday. In a statement released Tuesday, executive vice-president/alternative programming Mike Darnell said: “This is an interview that no one thought would ever happen. It’s the definitive last chapter in the trial of the century.”

Fox is a subsidiary of News Corp., which also owns Regan Books. A spokeswoman for Regan Books didn’t return a phone call or an e-mail seeking comment Tuesday.

Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman; he can’t be tried again for those crimes. In 1997, a civil court found him responsible for the slayings and ordered him to pay $33.5 million to the victims’ families.

Not So Fast, Donks!

Now, the generals who were screaming bloody murder and calling for Donald Rumsfeld’s head have suddenly decided we don’t need to hurry up and get out of Iraq. In fact, they think we need to increase troop levels. This has the new Democrat majority somewhat confused as to what to do now. Pardon me while I clap my hands, stomp my feet and cackle gleefully to myself. Lemme hear you all say “QUAGMIRE” one more time! Bwah-hah-ha-ha-ha-ha ....

Get Out of Iraq Now? Not So Fast, Experts Say
WASHINGTON (NY TIMES) - November 15, 2006

One of the most resonant arguments in the debate over Iraq holds that the United States can move forward by pulling its troops back, as part of a phased withdrawal. If American troops begin to leave and the remaining forces assume a more limited role, the argument holds, it will galvanize the Iraqi government to assume more responsibility for securing and rebuilding Iraq.

This is the case now being argued by many Democrats, most notably Senator Carl Levin of Michigan, the incoming chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, who asserts that the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq should begin within four to six months.

But this argument is being challenged by a number of military officers, experts and former generals, including some who have been among the most vehement critics of the Bush administration’s Iraq policies.

Anthony C. Zinni, the former head of the United States Central Command and one of the retired generals who called for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, argued that any substantial reduction of American forces over the next several months would be more likely to accelerate the slide to civil war than stop it.

“The logic of this is you put pressure on Maliki and force him to stand up to this,” General Zinni said in an interview, referring to Nuri Kamal al-Maliki, the Iraqi prime minister. “Well, you can’t put pressure on a wounded guy. There is a premise that the Iraqis are not doing enough now, that there is a capability that they have not employed or used. I am not so sure they are capable of stopping sectarian violence.”

Instead of taking troops out, General Zinni said, it would make more sense to consider deploying additional American forces over the next six months to “regain momentum” as part of a broader effort to stabilize Iraq that would create more jobs, foster political reconciliation and develop more effective Iraqi security forces.

Meanwhile, the new Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, has decided to press President Bush to change strategy in Iraq and is willing to invest $75 billion to increase the war effort. I wonder where that extra money will come from?

OH, wait a minute ... they’re Democrats! We already know where they’ll get the money, don’t we? So they’re not leaving Iraq and are about to spend more money on the war? Money gained by raising our taxes, I’ll wager.

Those of you who voted for the Democrats, please raise your hand if you are starting to feel like you have just been totally hoodwinked. The rest of us will just sit here and snicker ....

Reid Pledges To Press Bush On Iraq Policy
(WASHINGTON POST) - Wednesday, November 15, 2006

Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), who was elected Senate majority leader yesterday, said last night that President Bush still has not grasped the urgent need to change course in Iraq. Reid vowed to press quickly for phased troop withdrawals, a more international approach to Iraq’s problems and a rebuilding of the depleted U.S. military.

In his first extensive interview since the Senate Democrats’ leadership election, Reid also said members of his party will have to think big on the nation’s domestic issues. That includes tackling the budget deficit with strict new rules on spending, exploring an eventual expansion of Medicare to address the uninsured, and examining an increase in tax rates on upper-income Americans.

But it was on the issue of Iraq that he was most passionate. Voter anger over the war swept his party to power with the unlikely defeat of six Republican senators, he said. Democrats must respond to that anger, he added, with hearings to keep the heat on the Bush administration, and with calls for a regional Middle Eastern conference and a revitalized Iraqi reconstruction effort.

To that end, he said, one of the first acts of the new Democratic Congress will be a $75 billion boost to the military budget to try to get the Army’s diminished units back into combat shape.

Democrats will not try, Reid pledged, to play the strongest hand they have—using Congress’s power of the purse to starve the war effort of money and force the president to move. Such an effort would only elicit a veto from Bush. But he said Democrats will marshal their newly acquired power—in hearing rooms and on the Senate floor—to stoke public opinion and drive the debate.

How Sweet It Is

I’m sorry but this is just getting better and better. Sure, Republicans are now going to have to try to work with Democrats and get along but at the same time Democrats have their own little “problem” ... and its name is “Joe”. They’re sucking up big time to Joe Lieberman now. Which I think is absolutely hilarious.

Only a few months back they threw him to the wolves and practically frog-marched him out of the party. Now, he’s the only thing standing in the way of total gridlock in the Senate. If “Jilted Joe” would just flip to the Republican Party, the rest of America could go on about our business without any fear of being harassed by Washington. The Senate would be split 50-50 and peace would reign over the land. Please, Joe! Just do it! For the people’s sake!

Enter, Pariah: Now It’s Hugs for Lieberman
WASHINGTON (NY TIMES) - November 15, 2006

imageimageSenator Joseph I. Lieberman strode into a Democratic caucus gathering like he owned the place or, at the very least, like someone who is a flight risk and could leave at any minute, taking the Democrats’ new majority with him. In other words, everyone was extra-special nice to the wayward Democrat on Tuesday.

“It was all very warm, lots of hugs, high-fives, that kind of stuff,” said Senator Ken Salazar of Colorado. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon marveled, “One senator after another kept coming up and shaking his hand.” And Senator Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas noted, “I gave him a hug and a kiss.”

Mr. Lieberman received a standing ovation at a caucus luncheon after Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, who is poised to become the majority leader, declared, “We’re all family.”

All of which is particularly touching in light of recent history. It was, after all, just three months ago that Mr. Lieberman became something of a party pariah after losing the Democratic primary in Connecticut but continuing his re-election bid as an independent.

Mr. Lieberman won re-election last week without help from most of his Democratic Senate colleagues, who backed Ned Lamont, his Democratic rival, over their “good friend Joe Lieberman.”

These would be many of the same good friends “who were happy to leave my dad by the side of the road,” as Mr. Lieberman’s son, Matthew, put it in an election night speech. These, presumably, would include “friends” like Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, John Kerry of Massachusetts and Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut, all Lamont supporters.

“It’s clear that the Democrats need him at this point more than he needs them,” said Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, whom Mr. Lieberman genuinely does consider a close friend. “How sweet is this?”

Indeed, it is hard to imagine how Mr. Lieberman could have emerged better from last week’s election. He was re-elected comfortably, and the Democratic Party he still belongs to is now in the majority, assuring him the chairmanship of the powerful Homeland Security Committee.

Yet that majority is slim enough, 51 to 49, to turn Mr. Lieberman into arguably the Senate’s most influential member. If he defects, the Senate would effectively be under Republican control because Vice President Dick Cheney would cast tie-breaking votes.

Morale Is Low

I received the following e-mail a short time ago from a fellow conservative blogger and a dear friend in the blogosphere. She is quite depressed about the election as you can see from her correspondence below. I had noticed that she hasn’t been posting much in the last week and was starting to get concerned. Today’s e-mail clarified it for me and I decided it was time to ‘splain to her and all the troops what this war is all about.

Needless to say, the name of the blogger has been changed to protect the innocent ... and no, don’t even ask me to give up her real name. Some of you feel the same way and I’m damn sick and tired of hearing this defeatist bullshit. Read my reply and then get off your ass ....

Hi Skipper,

Hope you’re doing well.  I’m just curious about something. 

With the disastrous results of this past election, and President Bush saying he’s looking forward to working with the Democrat Congress on a guest worker program, have you by any chance felt demotivated about blogging? 

If so, how do you deal with it?  The news these days is very depressing.  Lately I have been unable to bring myself to post much.  On the other hand, I put so much work into my blog and “met” so many interesting people that I think it would be shame to give it up. 

Anyway, I’m all ears.

Betty Boop

Dear Betty,

imageimageLet me quote for you the words of Marine Corps General Chesty Puller when he found his troops surrounded at Chosin Reservoir during the Korean War: “So they’ve got us surrounded, good! Now we can fire in any direction, those bastards won’t get away this time!”

For six years you and I and many other conservative bloggers have been in the unenviable position of constantly defending “the gang that couldn’t shoot straight”, i.e. RINO’s who spent wildly, indulged in porkbarrel greed, took bribes from lobbyists and finally got us into Iraq with absolutely no plan for what to do with that country after we beat the shit out of Saddam’s army and took over the place.

Last week’s election was the best thing that could happen to all of us, the RINO’s and the bloggers who defended them. Now, we bloggers get to play offense for a change. We get to watch the Democrats as they now have a chance to “put up or shut up”. Of course they have no plan and are already proceeding to shove their foots in their mouths at every opportunity.

Voters didn’t vote for Democrats as much as they voted against Republicans disguised as conservatives. Conservative bloggers now have an opportunity to sink our teeth into the Liberals and Leftists’ asses in the Democratic Party with a vengeance. For six years they whined, carped, complained, moaned, bitched and did everything in their power to get in the way of any sort of progress in health care, border security, the war on terrorism, social security, education, etc. Now, it’s our turn. The shoe is on the other foot and we can have immeasurable fun poking the Democrats in the eye and asking, “So ... now you have the power. Fix what you’ve been complaining about. Show us what you’ve got.”

You already know what the answer will be. Nothing. This is going to be like shooting fish in a barrel, sweetie! We are surrounded by Leftists on all sides. We have them right where we want them. So get off your (cute) butt and pick up a rifle, soldier. Start firing in any direction. You’re bound to hit a Moonbat no matter where you aim for the next two glorious years.

imageimageTo paraphrase General Patton, “We’re going to kick the Leftist in the ass and we’re going to keep kicking him in the ass all the way back to Hollywood and Massachusetts!”

All the election did was change the strategy. We’re now the underdogs and we’re on the attack! Screw the RINO’s! This blog war is now about saving America. No more defending idiots who were supposed to be in our camp. Now we can concentrate all of our firepower on the real enemy.

So don’t let me hear any more of this defeatist whining. The more you whine and feel like giving in, the louder will be the derision and laughter from DailyKOS, Democratic Underground, and Huffington Post. They want you to roll over and give up. They think you’re weak and all wrong. Are you going to sit there and tell me they’re right?

BAH! I thought you had a pair, soldier. Maybe you would be better off blogging about interior decorating. After all, frilly lace doilies don’t fight back.

Today’s NY TIMES has a fairly reasonable analysis of the election and why what happened did happen in an editorial entitled ”The Real Message Of The Midterms” (requires subscription) by Andrew Kohut, a nonpartisan pollster and president of The Pew Research Center. According to Mr. Kohut, the election didn’t mark a real about-face in the voters but it did involve a few things that bear looking into.

I was particularly concerned with the third item in the list, which showed that voters with little or no religion in their lives voted for Democrats by a 2 to 1 margin. This bothered me immensely as I began to wonder if America was really becoming a nation of godless secularists.

As if to reinforce this worry, last night when I was channel-surfing I stumbled across a comedy special on HBO with Roseanne Barr live at some comedy club. I tuned in just in time to hear the bloated blimp dressed in a garish, eyeball-bursting muu-muu declare to the audience, “I hate religion. Don’t you? Religious people really suck.” --- and the audience applauded.

I had to turn off the TV at that point. I just sat there in the silence for a few minutes pondering the statements I had just heard. Statements that were disguised as “comedy”? I’m probably not the most deeply religious person in the world. I attend church fairly often but not every week and I don’t go around trying to convert the “heathens” among us. I feel it’s their choice and they can live (and die) with it. What I do believe in is that this nation is “one nation, under God”. After all, if we’re not beholden to The Creator for the good things we enjoy, then who should we thank ... Hollywood?

Leading Democrats Announce Their Plan For Iraq
WASHINGTON (ABC NEWS) - Nov. 13, 2006

Democrats who turned voter frustration with President Bush and the war in Iraq into majorities in both houses of Congress welcomed their new colleagues to Capitol Hill orientation today and said they would respond to the voter discontent. Leading Senate Democrats revived a plan for the “phased redeployment” of American troops out of Iraq, even though the plan did not get unanimous support among Democrats when it was first introduced in June.

What phased withdrawal would mean, according to Sen. Carl Levin, who after January will be the powerful chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, is that the president would tell the Iraqi government that U.S. troops would start slowly redeploying out of Iraq, into an advisory role while they are in-country, and with a lot fewer of them there.

“Most Democrats share the view that we should pressure the White House to commence the phased redeployment of U.S. troops from Iraq in four to six months — to begin that phased redeployment, and thereby to make it clear to the Iraqis that our presence is not open-ended and that they must take and make the necessary political compromises to preserve Iraq as a nation,” Levin said at a press conference on Capitol Hill. “We cannot save the Iraqis from themselves.

“They, and they alone, are going to decide whether they’re going to have a nation or whether they’re going to have an all-out civil war,” he said. “We have given them the opportunity, at huge cost of blood and treasure, to have a nation, should they choose it. But it is up to them, not us, not our brave and valiant troops — it’s up to the Iraqi leadership: Do they want a civil war or do they want a nation?”

Asked what would happen if phased redeployment is enacted, American troops leave Iraq and the country descends into civil war, Levin said there would be no real difference from what is happening with current U.S. policy, since civil war is the current trajectory. Levin said Democrats would wait to hear the suggestions of the Iraq Study Group as well as what he called “scrubbing” of options in Iraq currently underway by ranking military officials.

For his part, Bush implied that Democratic majorities in the House and Senate mean that Democrats have won themselves ownership of a piece of the credit and blame in Iraq. “What’s interesting is they’re beginning to understand that with victory comes responsibility, and I’m looking forward to working with the Democrats to achieve common objectives,” Bush said after his own photo op — this one with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in the Oval Office.

Another Hat In The ‘08 Ring

The horses have just barely been put in the stable from the last race and the next group of jockeys are leading the candidates out in preparation for the 2008 races. First John McCain jumped in and now Rudy Giuliani has saddled up and is examining the starting gate. It won’t be long before Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee jump in too. In my opinion, Bill Frist hasn’t got a chance. Neither does George Pataki. In fact, McCain is probably a long shot too.

On the other side of the aisle, the Democrats are basking in the warm afterglow of the recent election and haven’t come down yet. Don’t let that fool you though. Hillary Clinton and Al Gore are hard at work behind the scenes. John Kerry? Who’s he? Never mind. John Edwards? Not a chance. Anyone who lost to Kerry is a bona fide loser. Stay tuned, the muddled picture will start to clear up in about a year as the front-runners build their war chests and call in favors.

As for the rest of us, let’s just ignore all of the political asshats for a short time. After all, there are only 41 shopping days before Christmas. With any luck, one of you goobers will buy me that Ann Coulter talking doll that I’ve always wanted. No, not the small plastic one - the tall, blonde one. Ho-ho-ho ...

Giuliani Takes Step Toward ‘08 Bid
WASHINGTON (AP) - Nov 13, 11:29 PM (ET)

imageimageFormer New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, a moderate Republican best known for his stewardship of the city after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, has taken the first step in a 2008 presidential bid.

The former mayor filed papers to create the Rudy Giuliani Presidential Exploratory Committee, Inc., establishing a New York-based panel that would allow him to raise money to explore a White House run and travel the country.

The four-page filing, obtained by The Associated Press, lists the purpose of the non-profit corporation “to conduct federal ‘testing the waters’ activity under the Federal Election Campaign Act for Rudy Giuliani.”

The paperwork, dated last Friday, is signed by Bobby Burchfield, a partner at the DC-based law firm of McDermott Will & Emery, a firm that handles political work.

“Mayor Giuliani has not made a decision yet,” Giuliani spokeswoman Sunny Mindel said in a statement Monday night. “With the filing of this document, we have taken the necessary legal steps so an organization can be put in place and money can be raised to explore a possible presidential run in 2008.”

One potential rival for the GOP nomination, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, said Sunday he was taking the initial step of setting up an exploratory committee.

Under federal election law, an exploratory committee allows an individual to travel and gauge the level of support for a candidacy without formally declaring themselves a candidate and adhering to all the federal rules of fundraising. An individual who spends money only to test the waters - but not to campaign for office - does not have to register as a candidate under the election law.

The GOP field is expected to grow with Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Sen. Bill Frist of Tennessee, Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and New York Gov. George Pataki expected to join the presidential fray.

Democratic Gov. Tom Vilsack of Iowa has filed to establish a full-blown campaign committee and will make a more formal announcement of his candidacy later this month.

Giuliani was widely praised for leading the city during and after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He has said for months that he would wait until the end of the 2006 elections to decide whether to embark on a White House bid.

The former mayor is a moderate who supports gun control, same-sex civil unions, embryonic stem-cell research and abortion rights - stands that would put him at odds with the majority of the GOP conservative base.

Making Nice For The Cameras

Battle Royale -by- Cox & Forkum

“Bush, Democrats Pledge to Work Together” (ABC NEWS)

“My attitude about this is that there is a great opportunity for us to show the country that Republicans and Democrats are equally as patriotic and equally concerned about the future, and that we can work together.”

-- President George W. Bush

“The only way to move forward is with bipartisanship and openness, and to get some results. And we’ve made a commitment, the four of us here today, that’s what we’re going to do.”

-- Senator Harry Reid (D-NV)

“I think we can find a way to have agreement on the eavesdropping bill while making clear that would involve changes, such as adding some form of judicial review.”

-- Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)


-- Vice President Dick Cheney

“I have never heard so much horse-shit in my entire life.”

Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
