George vs. Helen

Posted by on March 21 at 10:26 AM

Did anyone catch Bush’s press conference this morning? I guess Helen Thomas beat the shit out of him. I’m sorry I missed that. Any eye witnesses?

Seriously, Dan, how anyone who can intentionally watch a Bush press conference is beyond me. I'd rather run sailmaker needles through my testicles.

Holy crap -- I just read about it on Salon War Room, and it sounds like a doozy. As does the following item, about how the feds are so set on fightin' terrism that many FBI agents can't even get ... email accounts.

Uh, I'm an email administrator, and I hereby offer any FBI agent who needs an email account one at my server. It won't be a "dot gov", but it'll work. Take me thirty seconds to create.
Why can't the government of the most powerful country in the world, facing its supposedly greatest-ever challenge, do the same?

This NEVER happens in a Bruce Willis movie. "Dammit, I'd take out the terror cell, but I don't have an email account".

"Spokeswoman Cathy Milhoan said e-mail addresses are still being assigned, adding that the city bureau's 2,000 employees would all have accounts by the end of the year."

Creating an email account on an Exchange box takes less than a minute. It's even less on a linux box running sendmail. Gimme a few interns and I could have this task completed TODAY. I know they have the servers.

NP -- I've invited them all to Gmail!

There's video posted up on Crooks & Liars:

Let's go down the check list
1)Spying on me
2)Lying to me
3)Getting our fellow citizens killed
4)Still saying I can't get married
5)And using my money to do it

Why do we have a President again?

I heard it. She had the balls to ask questions and hold Bush accountable for the chain of lies he has been creating about going to war. BUT he dodged the question. ITMFA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for all this good stuff -

I really can't stand to see him for more that a couple of minutes. By then my whold body / mind energy is just in crises.

Someone, please, post Helen's email so we can send I Love You - notes from Seattle - via the Stranger - would she be a local Mossbacke, I'm sure she woud be reading it and offering some pithy snarls now and then.

She is a treasure, sure to be missed,
the most of them are yuppie dim wit cowards.

I heard the majority of the thing on my way to work (NPR). It was frickin' hilarious. She kept interrupting him, and he'd say, "Uh, scuse me... huh-... scuse me, may I continue?" It was just precious, picturing that old lady making the Captain of the Universe excuse himself over and over again. Fun stuff...
