And the appropriate response is?

LONDON (Reuters) - Four years after the Sept. 11 attacks on New York and Washington, human rights are in retreat worldwide and the United States bears most responsibility, Amnesty International said on Wednesday, calling Guantanamo prison "the gulag of our times."

Folks, this used to be our President:


He won the fricking Nobel Peace Prize in 2002, and he not only knew what human rights are, he knew his responsibility as PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA was to fight for human rights around the world. Oh, and he also knows how to spell human rights. (Sorry for the cheap shot, Dubya, but Blue Gal is just a little PISSED OFF at you at the moment. She dug out her copy of Checkpoint she's so pissed off.) And lissen up, you red state lurking iceholes, Blue Gal has not forgotten the Iranian Embassy Hostage Crisis of the 1970's neither has she forgotten that none of those hostages were threatened with electrocution or shackled to a ceiling. Come to think of it, those hostages were Americans, and they were not blown up by a roadside I.E.D. while looking for non-existent W.M.D.'s either.

Okay, so this is the President we have now:


And Blue Gal's response to the whole thing is like when she was shaking a poopie diaper in the potty and some baby poop fell on her open copy of the Oprah Magazine where it talked about "living your best life." Yeah, she feels exactly like that.

Why Blue Gal is against global warming


Blue Gal has been invited by Henry (ooh, is it Baby Henry? I looove Baby Henry!) to join a virtual march against global warming. er. Okay. That way, I won't have to expel emissions by driving to the march. (Well, like most sentient creatures, Blue Gal does occasionally expel emissions on foot, but so far is a fart joke-free zone, so let's keep it that way, kay?)

Any hoo, those of you who want to join me against global warming may do so here. (Thank me for not making a deposit in your email box.)

They asked Blue Gal why she was joining the march. Well, it's not 'cause Robert Kennedy Junior is such a hottie. No, Blue Gal reserves hottie activism for Brad Pitt (see banner ad on the sidebar below), who, by the way, she totally forgives for the leaving that low talent tv actress for the second* hottest soul mama on the planet.

Anti-global warming is a no-brainer, isn't it? Oh, that's why Blue Gal joined. Because, well, so is our President.


*readers of Blue Gal ain't askin' who the first is...

Dammit, Blue Gal likes Ike


"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are...a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 11/8/54

They also happen to be in charge of the whole damn country in 2005.

Blue Gal sends a smooch to David Sirota.

Blue Gal has moved. The new url is

[Bloglet Subscribers will still get their subs at the new addy.]

This way, a certain state board of education will never find her.

Thanks much,

Blue Gal

Oh, all right, one more message to the State Dept of Education:

A peek inside Blue Gal's email...

So Blue Gal's readin her email and these two thangs just caught her brain at exactly the same time and she's thinkin, coincidence?

"Last Sunday, Pat Robertson went on national television to say liberal judges posed a greater threat to America than the Civil War, the Nazis or "a few bearded terrorists who fly into buildings."

And then Blue Gal got an email regarding this pleasant summer read. Mebbe Blue Gal will send a copy to Pat Robertson. [Be sure to read the Publisher Comments, folks.]

Doesn't anyone remember when Poppa Bush told Robertson to put up or shut up during the 1988 primaries?

We must have faith, though. Look at what's happening to our dear friends at ClearChannel. Evil will destroy the money, people.

Now, children, there's no need to get nasty...

Three children who need to be in Blue Gal's time-out chair:

1. Sen. Salazar, when you say Focus on the Family is the antichrist, please don't back down so quickly. You may have been right the first time, and Blue Gal is prone to whiplash.

2. We don't know when you did this, Mr. President, but it was on camera. You're in time out. It was long ago? So were those pictures of Terri Schiavo smiling that were shown non-stop on Fox, Mr. President.


3. Whoever designed this. Yes, I know. Mommy laughed. That doesn't mean it's funny.
