BRAVO!!

Rick Ballard

Astrologers fleece suckers.

Stock hustlers fleece suckers.

Hey! Wait a minute - you're not implying that the Kossacks are a bunch of.. Nah, you couldn't be. Obviously Jerome has turned over a new leaf and involved himself in politics due to heartfelt convictions - just like Kos himself.

clarice

If you guys drive Kos and Armstrong out of politics, I'll never forgive you.

Bill in AZ

TM - you gotta put a "put down your drinks" warning at the top of posts like this!! (now, where is my dry keyboard)

Rick Ballard

It's the NYT driving a stiletto between Kos's ribs. They want the nutroots off the porch as quickly as possible.

Besides, there is an 80% probability that the replacements will be nuttier than Kos.

Gary Maxwell

When the moon is in the 7th house and Jupiter aligns with Mars, then peace will guide the planet and love will rulle the stars...

But Cleo could have told you all of this too. He has a direct line to the psychic hotline.

clarice

Riehl says Brooks has an anti-Kos piece in the NYT ...I prefer the nutroots we know guys.

Foo Bar

I wholeheartedly acknowledge that this is extremely embarrassing for Armstrong, and my opinion of him has indeed plummeted further.

I am feeling a powerful urge to bring up the obvious Democrat's retort here, but I am going to stay strong and Just Say No to that temptation.

Rick Ballard

Over $1.1B was spent on the '02 cycle. About $500M has been spent so far on this cycle, which means that there is over $500M yet to be spent.

Could the Times be missing out on its cut? Is this a gentle hit to Dean as to how easy it is for the Times to cut a throat?

richard mcenroe

You mean Armstrong wasted his time back-editing all the astronomy references off his site?

Rick Ballard

Correction - those were totals for both parties - the Dems will spend another $240M - if they can raise another $150M or so.

clarice

Rick, let's dust off those old Che shirts..It's time for new leaders to grab the banners (and the gelt)..

Jane

Well I'm a Pisces; that must count for something!

clarice

It's hard to pick a fav , Gerry, but I really like this:
"I may be totally off on this whole thread of analysis though, just maybe. The aspects of trine from Jupiter to Pluto, and from Saturn to Uranus, are what the media says the debate is about, with a split decision. But these are trines, and trines usually don't protend toward making the tough choices, and this election is a stark choice. So a lot of people will look at the election in terms of these trines, and decide to sit it out; but some will feel this deeper unsettled energy, and will make the effort to vote for a change."

clarice

Rick, Maybe we can throw in a chatchke for those who sign up early..But I like the idea of recycling the TAC logo..Good thinking.

Dan Riehl

Take a look at the Raw Story Brooks piece - he added a link to a quick, dare I say, Gipper-like response from kos. Only he forgot to add that their success depends on his "sign."

We've had Kos' Grapes of Wrath speech, how many business days (hours?) until we get his I shall return speech?

danking70

Through The New Republic and the NY Times (spit!), Hillary has just knee-capped Mark Warner.

I think you guys and gals should just leave Jerome and Kos alone.

clarice

I think so, too, danking, but TM and RB and RM made me do keep picking on Kos. It's their fault.

danking70

Nice to know I've got such pleasant company.

But I am also looking forward to all the Joe-mentum sending Kos to 0-22.

verner

Actually, I want Hillary to kneecap Warner. Nice looking successful Southern governer who doesn't have the baggage of having to vote on any war resolutions--therefore can pick any position the wind blows in. He is their imaginary, mainstream, grassroots candidate. Sheesh. He might actually win.

The more inter-family bloodletting the better.

And cause Hillary has just blown it for Warner, and made Kos and his backers look stoopid and corrupt, they will continue to be very very unhappy with her.

lurker

OT: The Iraqi insurgents rejected the amnesty plan.

But I am going to Just Say Yes to stealing that.

Could the Times be missing out on its cut? Is this a gentle hit to Dean as to how easy it is for the Times to cut a throat?

Geez, if the Times can take down major intel programs, you would think they could take down a couple of bloggers.

Chants

I don't know if this Armstrong thing has legs, or even if it deserves legs.

But it is hella funny, and TM just beat the crap out of him.

Gerry

Depends on what you mean by "has legs." Will it become a big story? No.

But Armstrong is done as a player, and rightfully so. At worst he is a total scam artist. At best, he is the embodyment of the charicatures the left made of Nancy Reagan. And he isn't just a bride, he's a paid consultant for Presidential candidates.

Kos likely won't be impacted, unless he goes to the mat for his friend. Of course, if there was a sweetheart deal going on where there was some pay-for-touting, then Kos just had a planned source of future income evaporate. That is, unless the grassroots left is really that big of a collective sucker. I believe they are so-wrong on politics, but I also believe that most do not like being scammed, so I have faith.

clarice

Well, the koslambs seem to be unshaken in their faith in their non-leader.Great!

Niters.

but I also believe that most do not like being scammed, so I have faith

considering this diary at kos I would calculate that 75% of the kossacks are still BDS infected and thus incapable of realizing they are being scammed...I'd feel sorry for them if my my triple scorpio rising was in retrograde...

And, if you want to see the significance of Varuna at work in the mundane world. Look at it's connections with George Bush, 9/11, and the Republican chart, in event, transit, and progression. Look at Varuna with Kennedy's assassination-- this is a paradigm tipping-point energy at work. Varuna is a body that is on the same 'energetic' playing field as Pluto. Awakening this supra-unconciousness of the trans-Neptunians as their own group, instead of just co-opting Pluto from the bunch and calling it a day, is gonna take some work; but hey, that's where the enlightenment resides.


Jerome Armstrong, author, strategist, shill, and advisor to presidential hopeful Mark Warner.


Sara (The Squiggler)

On the new "leak" from the NYT -- this does not seem logical to me at all. General Casey and Donald Rumsfield held a press briefing on 22 June 2006, just two days ago. In that briefing, they gave broad numbers in terms of battalions, brigades and divisions. They talked about the Iraqis being up to 75% by the end of the year, etc. Is the Times saying that right after that they held some super secret meeting in which they came up with some troop draw down plan. It doesn't wash. Read the transcript of the briefing and see if you don't think the Times is talking about the very same things and trying to make it sound like a leak.

Pam the Reporter asks:

Q General, this week the national security adviser for Iraq laid out what they consider to be a withdrawal plan for U.S. forces. They're operating under the assumption that it will be the end of fiscal year -- or the end of 2007. Has that been coordinated with your office or with you? And is it feasible?

GEN. CASEY: I looked at that article. What Dr. Rubaie is talking about is about this provincial Iraqi control process that we have been working on with him for the past year. And we together built a set of criteria to evaluate the threat in the province, to evaluate the readiness of the police forces, to evaluate the readiness of the army forces, and to evaluate the ability of the provincial security apparatus to coordinate their efforts. And since April, the governors actually sit down with our division commanders and they evaluate themselves on that criteria and they make projections on where they're going to be. And so that's what he was talking about. There have been no discussions between any Iraqi authorities and myself that tied that to U.S. troop reductions.

Reporter Jim asks:

Q General Casey, understanding that you haven't made your recommendations on troop levels, can you say are you still confident -- do you still feel confident that the level of troops that are there now could come down by the end of the year, or has this complex security situation sort of obscured your vision as to what's possible this year?

GEN. CASEY: I'm confident that we'll be able to continue to take reductions over the course of this year, and yet -- it's -- well, it's the security situation and the progress of the Iraqi security forces. And I think I've mentioned the significant progress that has been made in that regard.

Q But last year you said fairly a substantial number --

SEC. RUMSFELD: Wait a second, wait a second, wait a second, wait a second.

Q Is that still true, fairly substantial?

GEN. CASEY: I think so. It looks over time --

SEC. RUMSFELD: (Let him ?) finish answering.

GEN. CASEY: What we've always said, what we've always said is there would be a gradual reduction over time as the Iraqi security forces assumed a larger and larger role.

SEC. RUMSFELD: And I would add something else that it will very likely not be a steady path down. It could very likely be a drawdown with an increase, if you think about it. Look over the last year. General Casey has on at least three occasions -- for the January elections, the October referendum, the December elections, and more recently for the stand-up of the government -- brought in some additional forces, and -- or delayed letting some people go out or accelerated some other people coming in. And the effect has been that the number has -- right now, I think we have 126,900 or something -- it's come down from a high of 160(,000), but it could very well go back up at some point. So it very likely will go down and up and down and up depending on the circumstances and depending on the need.

Q Fairly substantial reductions by this time this year, you said that last year. Is that still the case?

GEN. CASEY: Well, we -- as the secretary just said, we've gone from when the baseline was 138(,000); we're down to about 126(,000) right now. That's -- 12,000 that's -- whether that's a very substantial amount -- enough, I'll leave to your judgment. But as I said, I think there will be continued gradual reductions here as the Iraqis take on a larger and larger role.

Q Over the next year or two --

GEN. CASEY: It'll run over the course of the next year.

SEC. RUMSFELD: Do you want to have your fifth question or do you want to let someone else ask a question? What'll it be?

Q He'd probably take a fifth question.

SEC. RUMSFELD: Should we vote? (Laughter.) Yeah, I'll bet he would.

the song is so clever. a real charm. so i guess that kos is an astrologist too?

i'd say more but i feel my iq dropping just being at this blog.

If you come here and feel stupid, it's not that your IQ is dropping. Rather, it's disorientation from arriving at a high-IQ blog from wherever you were.

and have been watching the last few weeks of American Idol. Does that mean I'm banned from dKos? ;)

fwiw, there's a particular astrologer online (warning: the site has a lot of pop-ups) who I've been reading since she predicted that John Kerry would win the Democratic primary.

This at the end of December, when Kerry's poll numbers were in the basement and it looked like Howard Dean was going to walk away with it. She's predicted that Kerry will win the election and that Bush will have some of the toughest months of his presidency here in June and again in September. I've been relishing the arrival of June for months now. :)

PS: I don't know whether Kos is into astrology, but if so, it might explain his lousy track record supporting candidates.

I don't think so. Consider the difficulty level: as any mathematician will tell you, getting things consistently wrong is just as hard as getting them right. And the odds against picking the loser in 21 races in a row are huge. If each race was a simple two-way 50:50, the odds against picking the wrong one in 21 successive attempts is 2^15, or more than two million to 1 (1 chance in 2,097,152). Kos is bucking some truly astronomical odds, here, which argues for some science in his method.

Jane

So my bet is that Kos soon denounces Armstrong to save his dynasty.

His minions will enthusiastically follow suit, with naysayers quickly disposed of.

Sara (The Squiggler)

Bush, belive it or not, is a cancer. He doesnt seem at all empathic or emotional to me. Cancers are easily influanced by those around them...hmmm...better work up a Bush/Cheney composite chart to see what mojo is a work there.

This is too funny. Don't these people ever watch the President when he is out among the people or especially the troops? He is always tearing up.

I'm really getting a kick out of watching you moronic brownshirt fucks yapping furiously as you spin around chasing your tail. Keep at it - you'll catch it yet!

Cecil Turner

Cecil, shouldn't that be 1:(2^21)?

Yes. Which is 2,097,152--so at least I got that part right--I don't know where that 15 came from. (Stepped on my own punchline though, eh? Mmmpht.)

Cecil Turner

I'm really getting a kick out of watching you moronic brownshirt . . .

Dude, you're not getting half the kick out of this we are. And since one of the best parts is the lame rejoinders by the visiting moonbats . . . pass the popcorn, please.

Dwilkers

I'm thinking no, because I'm thinking there's more here than we know about yet, as in more do re mi money involved.

And the odds against picking the loser in 21 races in a row are huge.

Ah, crappy statistics. Kos mostly chose candidates in races that weren't getting much money from the DCCC. Beyond this, 2004 was not a Democratic year, and the Dems didn't win many close house races. Given these basic facts, that all of Kos's candidates lost was not a 50/50 chance - for each individual race, the odds were highly in favor of the Republican.

topsecretk9

--Astounding. A perfect storm of Denialism--

projecting again, eh?

topsecretk9

I haven't really looked at the astrology site very closely, but it occurred to me ...could the astrology for stocks just be another finance scam...where the "readings" associated with particular stocks?

There are a lot of people who live and die by astrology "predictions" so I just wondered if the Asto/Stock thing was preying on those types?

Cecil Turner

Given these basic facts, that all of Kos's candidates lost was not a 50/50 chance - for each individual race, the odds were highly in favor of the Republican.

Your "basic facts" look a lot like opinions. But accepting them for the sake of argument, your contention appears to be that Kos frittered money away in races the DCCC correctly assessed as unwinnable. And here I was, giving him too much credit.

Terry

Newsweek out today also has a long piece in it that will not make the Mighty Kos very happy. Among other matters,it recounts details of the Kosola mess, and in so doing doesn't paint a very good picture for those Dems who have publicly aligned themselves with Kos.

clarice

Cecil!!!!!!!!!!!

Terry, Looks to me like a concerted attack from the Dem middle doesn't it? What's the leadtime on a Newsweek story?

Rick Ballard

Kos didn't fritter away a dime. The commission for ad placement is as safely banked as any of Trippi's $5M. The main objective has been met.

verner

Didn't Tom at AT write about KOS's new house in Berkeley?

That should give you an indication of how much he's bringing in from SEIU advertising and writing puff pieces for favored Progressive politicians.

The rank and file should know where their dues are going.

I think the leader of the leaderless movement should release his tax return. Hey, what's wrong with being totally open.

verner

And least anyone forget the friend of the people--KOS's backer Mr. Soros:

The crisis had significant macro-level effects, including sharp reductions in values of currencies, stock markets, and other asset prices of several Asian countries. Many businesses collapsed, and as a consequence, millions of people fell below the poverty line in 1997-1998. Indonesia, South Korea and Thailand were the countries most affected by the crisis.

"The economic crisis also led to political upheaval, most notably culminating in the resignations of Suharto in Indonesia and Chavalit Yongchaiyudh in Thailand. There was a general rise in anti-Western sentiment, with George Soros and the International Monetary Fund in particular singled out as targets of criticisms."

Say what you will about G. W. "HITLERMCWALMARTHALIBURTONCHENEY" Bush, but I don't think he's responsible for almost single handedly throwing millions of people in the developing world into poverty.

Oh the IRONY!

Patton

As usual, John Kerry has perfectly bad timing..embracing the loony left blogosphere just as it is imploding.

I am surprised Pelosi hasn't claimed their is a culture of corruption on the part of Right Wing Bloggers.

Patton

I actually sat through most of Meet The Depressed this morning and realized I having missed much in the last couple of months.

Russert still won't ask a liberal a hard question..such as:

Q: You opposed the war with Iraq so if your position had prevailed, Saddam would still be in power, we would still have sanctions on the Iraqi people and they would be dying at a UN confirmed rate of 5,000 - 8,000 a month. How long would you have continued the policy of sarvation and malnutrition of the Iraqi populace?

Q: Do you believe that policy was based on the Clinton adminstration claim that Iraq had and was continuing to pursue WMD?

Q: Do you believe Osama Bin Laden when he said he in 1998 he was declaring war on the United States due to that Iraq policy?

Q: You say after you withdrawal US forces, you would send them right back in if the Iraqis need help? Wouldn't that require them to fight for territory we already control?

Q: Could you point to Oooookinawa on a map?
Would you as President make John Murtha SECDEF?

Patton

Did you know Clinton, Peolosi, Kerry, Edwards, Hilliary, Kennedy, Rockefeller, Reid, etc. were lying when they claimed Iraq had WMD.

Sara (The Squiggler)

I am so incredibly sick and tired of Kos and now Armstrong, I want to take my computer and throw it across the room. Every major blog and now major media outlets are covering these idiots. I have never been to a KOS-kiddie site, not DU, not FDL, none of them. I see enough of their immature, naive, senseless, insane babbling in comments on other blogs. These are bottom feeders, rote readers, and definitely not critcial thinkers. I'm not even sure they are capable of putting a sentence together that doesn't include F**K or some scatalogical reference. Why does anyone give a crap (used here for the benefit of those who don't understand words more sophisticated)? All that is being accomplished is more publicity for them so that more disaffected bottomfeeding rote readers join in. Dumbasses that don't have a clue about life in general, politics and things military in particular, with no common sense, little understanding of history and definitely no concept of words like ethics, honor and integrity.

As usual Specter got Jeffersons quote ALL WRONG. What Jefferson actually said was:

"If I had to choose between newspapers without government and government without newspapers, I'd choose the latter."

So if we had 'government', Jefferson would choose to NOT have 'newspapers'

The never seem to quote what Jefferson said in an actual government document...say The Declaration of Independence.

Patton

OK, so maybe the quotes wrong...who knows...but Jefferson did say:

"""But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.""""

Guess Jefferson never heard of Times Select...

lurker

Thanks for the link to the Steyn article. I love his writings - short, to the point, well-focused, and with interjection of humor and something from the past! :)

I wish Steyn would write something about Feingold's comment that the majority of the Americans stand by him when he speaks of censure, impeachment, or the Iraqi war.
