Just call me Lucifer ,'Cause I'm in need of some restraint

Listen to the hove beats of the little neorepublicans heading to the door to explain why they can no longer stand with Dubya, with Hastert and the rest of the "Foley Five" or will it end up the "Foley Fifteen"?

The neorepublicans think it could not get any worse, but yet it will. More October surprise is expected for their neo party, still reeling from Foley fallout.

Keep in mind Patrick Fitzgerald is still hard at work on the CIA Leak case, sure to deliver a knock out punch.

GOP Chair Ken Melhman should start making post-neorepublican era plans to "reinvent" the party.

His "values voters" are fleeing the party at a fatal rate. Covering for deviant representatives will have that effect...

Foley is hardly the tip of the iceberg and Ken knows it. Why did Dusty Foggo and Porter Goss resign? Maybe the limo driver can shed some light.

Hmm, whatever do you supposed this could this mean, Dearest Readers?

It appears the limo driver, who also knew Jack Abramoff-is talking about it-you know- the one who drove "Duke" Cunningham and "other important officials" to visit hookers plying their trade at the Watergate Hotel.

Which really leaves Prissy left wondering...how could they tell whom was who?

One more reason to cut down on military aid, some of their doctors experiment on humans.

Particularly repugnant coming from Jewish doctors- kind of like a middle aged pedophile who targets underage youth and then makes laws against predators in his spare time. Four top doctors arrested over illegal human experimentation

According to a report issued by the investigations department of the Health Ministry and exposed by Haaretz, the hospitals in Gedera and Rehovot conducted illegal and unethical testing on thousands of elderly patients for years.

During one of the incidents described, twelve patients died either during the experiments or shortly after they took place, but these incidents were not reported to the Health Ministry or investigated, as is required by law.

Not only that...

According to the report, some of the tests did not even yield any medically or scientifically beneficial results. Furthermore, some of the experiments were conducted despite top doctors' warnings that they were illegal or unethical.

Boston.com GOP gay advocacy group may not endorse Healey

The Log Cabin Republicans of Massachusetts , which endorsed Mitt Romney in the 2002 governor's race, may refrain from endorsing Republican gubernatorial nominee Kerry Healey this year.

With 50 active members, the conservative, gay organization does not pack much electoral punch.

Only 50? Perhaps recruitment could be a post-neo job for Foley and Melhman... Foley can then look for dates his own age.

Khaleej Times Lebanese army has confiscated Hezbollah arms

The Lebanese army has confiscated arms belonging to the Shia militant group Hezbollah in accordance with a UN truce resolution, Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Murr said for the first time on Tuesday.

Asked about unconfirmed media reports about the confiscation of an unspecified number of Hezbollah arms, Murr said: “There were reports in the media about the confiscation of weapons, these reports were true.”

However, Murr declined to give details about how many weapons had been confiscated and was vague when describing the army’s role in disarming the guerrillas.

And...Hezbollah has agreed that the Lebanese army can take possession of any arm “found” in the area, but the group’s chief, Hassan Nasrallah, said last month that his militants will keep their arms but use them only in the event of war with Israel.

Al-Jazeera Weary Afghans 'may opt for Taliban'

Nato's top commander in Afghanistan has warned that the country is at tipping point and Afghans are likely to switch their allegiance to the Taliban if there is no visible improvement in their lives in the next six months.

General David Richards, a British officer who commands 32,000 troops in Afghanistan, said that if life doesn't get better over the winter, 70 per cent of Afghans could get behind the Taliban.

"They will say, 'We do not want the Taliban but then we would rather have that austere and unpleasant life … than another five years of fighting'," he said.

Afghanistan is going through some of the worst violence since the US-led invasion removed the Taliban from power five years ago.

Another Dubya failed attempt at democracy. But then, he never really did care for that form of government...

Reuters China rules out war over N.Korea

China on Tuesday declined to rule out possible U.N. sanctions against North Korea for carrying out a nuclear test but said any military action was unimaginable.

It said it had no information about widespread speculation that the secretive North might be ready to conduct a second test.

Asked what Beijing thought of the possibility of military action, Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao told a news conference: "I think this is an unimaginable way."

Analysts say the Stalinist North's announcement on Monday it had conducted an underground nuclear test was almost certainly a bid to push the United States into ending a painful crackdown on its finances and finally agree to one-on-one negotiations.

Dubya, the Chinese won't give you your armaggeddon, either.

CNN Speaker vows to fire anyone involved in Foley cover-up

House Speaker Dennis Hastert said Tuesday he'll dismiss anyone on his staff found to have covered up concerns about ex-Rep. Mark Foley's approaches to former pages.

Hastert, R-Illinois, said he huddled with his staff last week and in that, in hindsight, the situation could have been better handled.

But he added, "If they did cover something up, then they should not continue to have their jobs."

Speaking to reporters in Aurora, Illinois, said that if there was a cover up, it would come out when his staff members testified under oath before the ethics committee or FBI.

Denny, now is that the kind of "fired" like when Dubya said, "leakers will be fired?"

Radio Free Europe North Korea: Why Shouldn't Pyongyang Join Nuclear Club?

PRAGUE, October 10, 2006 (RFE/RL) -- By announcing that it has carried out a nuclear test, North Korea is laying claim to membership in the world's most exclusive club -- that of the nuclear powers. Its move has caused outrage across the world, but why should North Korea not be let in? For some answers, RFE/RL's Kathleen Moore spoke to Shannon Kile, an expert in nuclear nonproliferation at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute in Sweden.

RFE/RL: The five original signatories to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) -- as well as others -- have nuclear weapons for defense. Why shouldn't others be able to join the club?

Shannon Kile: The original five signatories to the Non-Proliferation Treaty -- the United States, the United Kingdom, China, France, and the Soviet Union, now Russia - signed the NPT with the understanding under Article 6 that they would work in good faith towards general and complete nuclear disarmament. What we've seen in the intervening years is that they have retained and reaffirmed the role of nuclear weapons in their security policies. In some cases they have given new roles and missions to nuclear weapons and they seem to be committed to retaining nuclear weapons for the indefinite future. So there's clearly a double standard here. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's a good idea for there to be a general proliferation, that is for there to be a large number of states with nuclear weapons arsenals. The simple reason for this is that nuclear weapons are uniquely dangerous because they're uniquely destructive, and any time you have more states with nuclear weapons the odds increase that they may be used in military conflict, perhaps not even in terms of deliberately being used, but their use could come about as a result of accident, miscalculation, or the inadvertent escalation of nonnuclear conventional conflicts.

Hat tip to campaign guy Michael-The Athens News (OH)Letter: Padgett follows lead of her patron in dirty, misleading campaign attacks

And that's the real issue. Joy is desperate to distract voters from her recent million-dollar personal bankruptcy filing, her close connection with Ohio's highly unpopular Gov. Bob Taft and his failed policies, and most especially, her close relationship with U.S. Rep. Bob Ney, whose seat she is trying to fill, and who pled guilty to federal corruption charges after months of denials (and open support in those denials by Joy).

Joy's campaign tactics again show her moral, as well as financial, bankruptcy. She cares nothing for the truth, and obviously has nothing but contempt for the voters if she expects them to keep swallowing this bull.

Bob Ney is an admitted liar and a thief. Do the residents of Ohio really want another liar to replace him? Thankfully, the smell of corruption in Columbus and Washington is so strong that even the biggest lies can't cover it up. Zack Space, who is not a professional politician and vows he will put his constituents ahead of any special interests, remains at least 10 points ahead of Joy Padgett in this congressional race, with just a month to go.

Sometimes, good guys do win.

This letter was written by Terry Anderson.(Wikipedia) Anderson is the best known, and longest held, hostage of a group of American hostages belived to be captured by Shiite Hezbollah militants in an attempt to drive U.S. military forces from Lebanon during the Lebanese Civil War.

In December, 2003 Terry Anderson announced his candidacy on the Democratic ticket for Ohio state senate's 20th District. Anderson's opponent was Republican candidate Joy Padgett, who had been appointed to the seat earlier in the term. Padgett ran controversial ads suggesting that Anderson would be soft on terrorism; the ads showed Anderson shaking hands with one of his former kidnappers. He received 46% of the vote in a district that leans Republican; the seat has been held by Republicans since 1977

Google Video Sex Crimes and the Vatican

Investigation into allegations that a secret church directive, issued by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger before he became Pope Benedict XVI, is ... all » being used to silence the victims of child sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests. Colm O'Gorman, who was raped as a 14-year-old boy by his local parish priest in Ireland, travels to America, Brazil and the Vatican City to uncover more.

Prissy thinks they need to read through the New Testament again...you'll notice these sickening pedophiles almost always pick attractive children. Got cute kids? Protect them, teach them about pedophiles. Most are not strangers to their victims. Thank you Patrick Fitzgerald for the bumper stickers Prissy swiped

More later...
