AS NOTED YESTERDAY, THE SCANDAL IS AMONG US.
TODAY, LEGENDARY CONSPIRACY THEORIST AND ONCE UPON A TIME REPORTER ROBERT PARRY CONFIRMED HE IS WITH CHILD AND THE FATHER OF THE CHILD TO BE?
FADED CELEBRITY BARRY O!
SAID PARRY TO THESE REPORTERS -- MUST CREDIT BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIG MIX --, "I PRAYED FOR A MIRACLE AND I GOT ONE. I AM CARRYING THE HOLY ONE'S CHILD. I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH HIS CHILD. HIS SPERMIES ARE INSIDE ME. ASK NOT THE HOW, BEHOLD THE POWER OF PRAYER!"
PARRY THEN LIFTED UP HIS SHIRT AND INVITED THESE REPORTERS TO FEEL THE BABY KICK.
FOR 20 MINUTES THESE REPORTERS EACH HELD A HAND ON PARRY'S LARGE, PROTRUDING BELLY BUT FELT NO MOVEMENT.
PARRY EXPLAINED THE BABY WAS "WHAT'S KNOWN AS 'SHY IN THE WOMB'."
On the topic of distractions, did you catch Kathleen Miles (Huffington Post) serving up sop yesterday? The queen of the pig sty wanted you to know that if the GOP wins control of the Senate in the November mid-term elections, Senator John McCain will call for ground troops in Iraq.
Oh, good heavens!
Where are the pearls?
We must clutch the pearls!
And fan ourselves!
Oh the shock . . .
It's so unsettling.
And what a surprising plot twist!
John McCain, who has been calling for ground troops in Iraq will, after November, continue to call for ground troops in Iraq.
Yes, that's right.
He's already calling for troops in combat in Iraq.
(And, yes, ground troops -- US ground troops -- are already in Iraq and US troops flying missions where they drop bombs in Iraq are already taking part in combat missions. Don't say it too loudly, though, it might lead Kathleen Miles to piss her panties in public.)
No one's expecting or predicting a huge swing in the Senate.
It's thought that two seats may be in seriously play and could go to the Republicans giving them control of the Senate.
47 or 48 Democrats (we'll count Bernie Sanders in that number) can't stand up to the GOP?
Can't or won't?
If Miles wants to panic, she should panic over the fact that Democrats in the Senate are most likely poised to sell out the American people yet again on Iraq.
And, shocker, that's probably true regardless of who controls the Senate after the mid-term elections.
Shame on anyone who believes the crap Miles is churning out.
Shame on anyone who believes the Democratic Party when it comes to Iraq.
It was, after all, the 2006 mid-term elections that proved the Democratic Party is a craven whore who will say anything -- while doing nothing.
Ahead of the election, Nancy Pelosi (and others) declared that if the voters gave the Democrats control of even one house of Congress, the Democrats would end the Iraq War.
The voters gave them control of both houses: the House of Representatives and the Senate.
January 2007 saw that Congress sworn in and, November 2007, all US forces left Iraq and the war was declared over and . . .
The Democrats did nothing.
The war ground on.
The Democrats did nothing.
Nancy likes to blame Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
I was present when she insisted to the San Francisco Chronicle that she did everything she was supposed to do but Harry Reid refused to rally support in the Senate and, in fact, quashed any efforts to end the war.
I wasn't the only one present. And audio exists of her remarks.
But somehow we're the only site that's ever managed to report what Nancy said, to acknowledge her accusations.
Miles appears to want to use the Iraq War to scare up votes for the Democratic Party.
I believe America bought that game in 2006. I don't think anyone's still wanting to play it today.
The GOP Senate would be a great thing.
It would allow whores like Medea Benjamin and CodeStink and Robert Parry and all the others to rail against power.
They don't now.
They haven't in years.
They are War Hawks in their own silence and in their own refusal to call out Barack Obama who is the President of the United States but for whom they've made excuses for six years now.
It was Hillary's fault and then it was this person's fault or that person's fault (or the conspiracy cabal that loony Robert Parry is seeing yet again -- when he plays like the contra story got him drummed out of the real press, he forgets to talk about his wild eyed, nutty conspiracy tales he presented as fact at Sarah McClendon's home over and over and over and over . . . . I have over twenty letters from Sarah stapled in journal volumes from those years where she documents Parry's 'creative' thinking.).
A GOP-controlled Senate could let these lazy ass whores pretend they're taking on the power again as they railed against the legislative body (while still failing to hold Barack accountable for his own actions).
