"It’s hard for me to listen to President Bush invoking my father’s memory to attack John Kerry. Senator Kerry has demonstrated his courage and commitment to a stronger America throughout his entire career. President Kennedy inspired and united the country and so will John Kerry. President Bush is doing just the opposite. All of us who revere the strength and … Read More
Total Film magazine’s annual poll of the "Movie Villain of the Year" had an interesting outcome. Was it Dr. Octopus from Spiderman 2? Or the bad guy from Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Or the Alien? Or the Predator? Nope. It was George Bush (star of "Fahrenheit 9/11"). (Source) Heh.
I think the whole meme that "we got bad intelligence" rings hollow when you have a White House that is uninterested in ACTUAL reality, and more interested in ITS version of reality. Check out this article (not online, but reprinted in part here from The American Conservative Magazine): On Sept. 28, at the Vice President’s request, the Agency provided a … Read More
I think Josh Marshall is on to something when he writes: This evening, Wingerdom is all aflutter about what they now see as the New York Times-CBS-IAEA international anti-Bush conspiracy. But they might do better to focus their anxieties elsewhere. Like at the Pentagon, for instance. Who over there is trying to stick it to the president? Look at two … Read More
Get off the subject, George. It’s a minefield. Don’t get all flippity-floppity with the election one week away! Bush Says His Party Is Wrong to Oppose Gay Civil Unions By ELISABETH BUMILLER Published: October 26, 2004 WASHINGTON, Oct. 25 – President Bush said in an interview this past weekend that he disagreed with the Republican Party platform opposing civil unions … Read More
Today, three well-respected political magazines representing very distinct corners of the political spectrum have either (a) endorsed Kerry and/or (b) forcefully rejected Bush. They are: The Nation The New Republic The American Conservative So Bush gets the neo-cons. But as for the greens, moderates, liberal hawks, and traditional conservatives? They can’t they seem to get behind Bush. Why is that? … Read More
Mere hours after Bush unveils an ad using scary wolves, Political Wire is reporting that Kerry has a response ad comparing Bush to an ostrich: Ad transcript: "The eagle sours high above the earth; the ostrich buries its head in the sand. The eagle knows when it’s time to change course; the ostrich just stands in its place. Given these … Read More
It’s odd. Bush says that Kerry is failing to comprehend the war on terrorism. It’s odd, I say, because Bush’s own people, are saying (implicitly anyway) that it is Bush who doesn’t get it. The Bush Administration seems to think that the way to defeat terrorism is by decapitating the leadership of al Qaeda. Capture or kill those AQ leaders … Read More
I am by no means a sports nut. And I don’t understand the "fandom" that comes with many sports. Like NASCAR. How can car mechanics even be called a sport, which (I always thought) had something to do with physicality and the indomitable human spirit . . . or something close to that? No matter. I’m in no position to … Read More
A little late, in my opinion, but the White House realized it is probably not a good idea to have Bush’s bloopers and flip-flops on the official White House website. So they have been slowly and quietly removing them. Not to worry. This guy is on top of it. Gone now are Bush’s "I’m not that concerned about Bin Laden" … Read More

Yes, she’s an easy target, but her Amazon Interview is too priceless to miss. Plus, it’s short. Let’s begin. Amazon.com: How important is this presidential election in the larger context of the Republic and its history? Ann Coulter: Insofar as the survival of the Republic is threatened by the election of John Kerry, I’d say 2004 is as big as … Read More
It’s true, according to this study. For example . . . Even after the final report of Charles Duelfer to Congress saying that Iraq did not have a significant WMD program, 72% of Bush supporters continue to believe that Iraq had actual WMD (47%) or a major program for developing them (25%). Fifty-six percent assume that most experts believe Iraq … Read More
Why doesn’t the Administration want you to read this CIA report until after election day?
Yup. Distant cousins, but cousins nonetheless. As Instapundit would probably say: Ouch. P.S. Then again, Kerry and Bush themselves are distant cousins. Hat tip: Political Wire
