"He's a throwback to our youthful idealism.
Optimistic. Believes in hard work.
No chip on his shoulder. And he considers the Constitution as holy a document as the Magna Carta."
--Chris Heinz, son of Teresa Heinz Kerry, on John Kerry, Attribution
I'm so old, I remember when the Constitution was semi-respected by the GOP
Will we get to vote? Or will Bush delay the vote "to protect us?"
"American counterterrorism officials, citing what they call "alarming" intelligence about a possible Qaeda
strike inside the United States this fall, are reviewing a proposal that could allow for the postponement
of the November presidential election in the event of such an attack, Newsweek has learned.
The prospect that Al Qaeda might seek to disrupt the U.S. election was a major factor behind last week's
terror warning by Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge. Ridge and other counterterrorism officials
concede they have no intel about any specific plots. But the success of March's Madrid railway bombings
in influencing the Spanish elections - as well as intercepted "chatter" among Qaeda operatives - has led
analysts to conclude "they want to interfere with the elections," says one official."
Whatever the reason, I don't think the Illegal Thugs are going
to give up power in six months.
They'll either rig the Diebold machines or they'll mail out more anthrax or explode bombs in the
Lincoln Tunnel for an excuse to delay/deny the people their legal right to vote his crooked ass out.
"It's hilarious that the Republicans are trying
to paint their ticket as the more optimistic one.
Cheney and Bush radiate negativity, even as Edwards and his photogenic blond kids glow for
the cameras. Dick Cheney glowers for the camera, a Dr. No with a dark vision that has resulted
in a gigantic global mess. (When he was stopped by applause at a campaign stop in Altoona, Pa.,
on Sunday, he asked, "You guys want to hear this speech or not?")
Unfortunately for this White House, it
is Edwards's great talent to talk about the class warfare of
"two Americas" in a sunny way. The Breck Girl is already getting under the Boy King's thin skin.
-- Maureen Dowd, she hates everybody - this time it's everybody Attribution
trying to trade liberty for safety
by Walter Cronkite
"We have witnessed the president and attorney general of one of the most secretive administrations in
American history claiming war powers to deny civil liberties protected by the Bill of Rights. We've seen
the creation, in America, of a detention procedure in which detainees have had no recourse to lawyers,
no chance to plead their innocence -- people who simply disappear into a system right out of George Orwell's "1984."
But then, last week, the Supreme Court --
the same conservative court that civil libertarians had begun to
despair of -- told Mr. Bush in a nearly unanimous ruling that "a state of war is not a blank check" and that he
did not have the power to imprison American citizens or anyone else indefinitely, without any ability to challenge
their accusers in a court of law. In other words, he could not suspend the Bill of Rights."
Who can argue with the most trsuted man in America?
Cheney: Kerry Backtracking on Iraq War
Kerry and Edwards reviewed the same prewar intelligence on Iraq that was
given to Bush and both supported the decision to go to war, Cheney said.
"Now it seems they've both developed a convenient
case of campaign amnesia," Cheney lied
during a $500-per-plate breakfast fund-raiser for a Republican congressional candidate.
He said the Democratic senators "are criticizing
the president for looking at the same information
that they did and coming to the same conclusion that they did. If the president was right, and he was,
then they are simply trying to rewrite history for their own political purposes."
Cheney had the CIA tell the senate that Saddam was ready to launch.
Who would vote to take no action after hearing that? Besides reading bartcop.com
how were the senators supposed to know the briefing was a Cheney-Rummy fraud?
"If you're a drug addict on the street, they
say it's a crime,
but if you're a right-wing radio talk-show host, they say it's an illness."
--Julian Bond, on the vulgar Pigboy Attribution
"The Ranks had come to West Virginia because the wife was doing environmental work for FEMA.
On Tuesday, Jeff Rank told some Charlestonians that FEMA had fired her. On Wednesday, a FEMA
official said only that Nicole Rank had been "sent home." What does that mean? Was she sent back to
Texas for wearing a shirt denouncing the president? Has her government job been terminated? The FEMA
official wouldn't say, and we couldn't locate the Ranks in Texas to ask them...
Out in Washington state, the Tri-City Herald
printed a sarcastic editorial titled: "Let freedom ring - somewhere else."
"On a day the nation celebrates its freedom, Bush handlers and Charleston police apparently decided to make an
exception for Bush's event on the state Capitol grounds," the paper said. It added that Americans have a right of
free speech - "Except in Charleston. Except on the Fourth of July. And except for Bush critics."
Someday, a freedom-loving, patriotic Republican
will stand up and say, "Mr Bush - the abuse
We have to wait for the GOP to do it because the Democrats are too scared.

Message from Joe Conason
Thanks to early box office success in New
York and Washington, The Hunting of the President
is about to open all over the country. And I mean literally all over the country, from Sarasota to Pasadena,
from Cape Cod to Minnesota to Seattle. (Not to mention Chicago! Atlanta! Memphis! Kansas City!)
And lots of other cities and towns and malls..some yet to be named, including Philly, Portland, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Cleveland...).
Our trailer is running at many showings
of F 9/11 and the theatre owners are responding to public demand...
But now we have to fill all those seats.
So please check out our website The Hunting of the President, official movie site - Regent Releasing,
where the theatrical openings are constantly updated and you can download the trailer, too.
"America has become a nation without journalism,
for the most part, a place where agenda's are set
by those who are being questioned and not by those who represent the public's right to know what's
really going on. On program after program, the "experts' tend to be those who agree with the individual
or the agency under scrutiny, and together the interviewer and the interviewee just laugh at the thorny
questions that a lot of people are seeking real answers for. There is no appeal, no counter-culture place
for people to go for answers, except of course to the Internet...
What we have are cheerleaders for a
completely corrupt and floundering leadership, and some enterprising
lawyers need to now begin to discuss exactly how the media can be charged with collusion, in this farce that
now passes for American Foreign Policy. During the Nuremberg Tribunals, media types from the Third Reich
were tried right along with the Nazi generals, because their efforts at disinformation were deemed to be just
as critical to the Nazi war effort, as was that of the Nazi General staff."

Drudge Says Moore's 9/11 Is Pure-Drudge!
"On those terms, Matt Drudge, the right-wing Web gossip and longtime agitator of the left, had to
tip his hat to Mr. Moore's film, and to a mudslinger after his own heart. "I give him major props,
as a piece of art. I was filled with steamy jealousy throughout," he said. But while Mr. Drudge
crafted his own right-wing mosaic of American reality out of mere Web links, Mr. Moore was
stitching together sound bites and facts on a much larger scale - 1,700 motion-picture screens!
- and Mr. Drudge was flush with envy.
"This is a totally new level of expertise and
skill and cunning," he said. He even compared Mr. Moore
to H.L. Mencken. "I should stress that I'm not endorsing what his premise was - I couldn't even
follow the premise," he lied. 'It was more the images and the drama.'"
"I ain't seen that movie..."
Thanks for restoring some sanity to the
world of political commentary, namely by your comments
about the Senate Intelligence Commitee report. My mind has been boggling for days over the press
coverage of this report. In addition to the telling observations you made about the report there is also
the argument, made at the time that Bush was arguing for an invasion, that invading a country ready to
go to war with WMDs is scarcely intelligent, especially when it's a country which attacked your allies
with missiles the last time you went to war against it. The reasonable conclusion is that the White House
had accurate intelligence about Iraq's capacity to defend itself, invaded because it knew Iraq couldn't
defend itself, and simply lied about the WMDs.
I was particularly annoyed with the Democrats Sunday, all running
to get in front of
a TV camera so they could say Bush was innocent and the CIA got it all wrong.
Our side wouldn't know how to fight back if they ever decided to.

"Hillary is finally getting some backup on
her vast-right-wing-media charge. The targets are two media giants:
Rush Limbaugh and Rupert Murdoch's Fox News Channel. In Rush's case, he's the only political commentator
on Armed Forces Radio, and Democrats want the organization partly funded with tax dollars to hire a lefty pundit
--or drop him. Murdoch, meanwhile, has committed two sins in liberals' eyes: He owns too much media and has
created a "Fox effect" that supposedly forces other networks to bend conservative or lose market share.
This week, MoveOn.org and the Clinton-friendly Center for American Progress unleash their attack in a
Michael Moore-style documentary called Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism. Its point:
Fox is too cozy with the GOP, and Murdoch forces his righty bias on his staff."

Subject: Fundraiser ruckus
I felt the same way when Kerry caved in
to the big mouth hypocrite Republicans.
When will they learn to go for the effing jugular like Limbaugh & Co? WHEN?
I know Dems are by nature a zillion times
nicer than the money lusting GOP
- but we have GOT to learn to fight fire w/ fire. God damn !!
Somebody get a hold of Kerry and give him
the word and tell him to go for the gold NOW.
Let's hope Kerry doesn't go for the silver the way Gore did.

Subject: Likely reason for suspicious "terror alert"
Tom Ridge's "terror alert" isn't the usual
obfuscation we've come to expect from this administration.
This one is a 3-fer:
not only does it serve to shift media focus
away from Kerry/Edwards, it also was meant to fan the flames
of terror away from the White House and onto the CIA, on this the day that the Senate report comes out
blasting the CIA. But because Ridge has stressed the "disruption of the election," get ready for what must
be the real reason: to prohibit a democratic protest at the Republican convention in New York next month.
They're laying the groundwork now. They must be stopped.

"Our government is selling out the middle class.
It's a disgrace. I haven't talked to one person
- except the rich people - who wants to vote for Bush. A lot of people are not going to vote at all,
and if the Democrats had a good candidate it would be a landslide. My father was a Democrat and
he used to say that when Republicans are in charge even the fishing is bad. You know what?
The fishing around here has been terrible."

Bush's American soldier body count in Iraq
887 dead American soldiers
Two more since yesterday - and they love Bush?
Drip, drip, drip - young lives go down the drain for Bush's illegal
and polls show America favors the giggling murderer over war hero Kerry?
Soon it will be 900,
and sometime before the election, it will be 1000.
Do you have an opinion?
Do any GOP impressions?

'I believe that Congress should do all that
it can to protect the American people from
another terrorist attack, but we must do that without undermining basic constitutional rights.
I find it ironic that, on an amendment designed to protect American democracy and our
constitutional rights, the Republican Leadership in the House had to rig the vote and subvert
the democratic process in order to prevail. This was a very sad day for democracy in America.'"
-- Rep. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) after leading a bipartisan coalition in an attempt to restore protections
to library and bookstore patrons' records which have been undermined by the Patriot Act. The amendment,
facing threat of a Presidential veto, received a majority of votes in the U.S. House when the time for voting expired.
However, the House Republican Leadership then held open the vote twice as long as scheduled, an additional 20 minutes,
as they "persuaded" Republicans to switch their votes. As Democratic members chanted, "Shame, Shame, Shame,"
Republican leaders closed the vote on a 210 to 210 tie. Attribution
The Democrats summoned enough courage to f-ing chant?
Subject: Why do we always apologize?
I just don't get it! I was having
the same discussion with my friend at lunch.
Cheney actually said a bad word (sorry, e-mail at work, gotta watch the language)
to a colleague in his place of employment.
I know what would happen to me if I did that, and it wouldn't be pretty.
Kerry and company didn't say the words.
Why don't they just come out and say that?
They're too afraid to defend themselves
Liked the idea of releasing the tape of
the show when Cheney releases
his energy task force records, by the way.
Nancy, the Cub fan
It's always like this:
Cheney screams the F word and holds secret energy meetings with Kennyboy to split up Iraq's
oil fields before 9-11. They refuse to release the records of that meeting which probably also detailed
their coming-soon, Enron-produced California energy rape and they're just as guilty as they can be.
Meanwhile, Kerry is on the defensive AGAIN because Whoopie Goildberg
Why can't our side think?
Why can't our side negotiate?
Why can't our side do something besides apologize when they're innocent?
The Democrats need some Bart in their damn lives.
