"You know, I play a very smart and impassioned
character on television, but I was fairly
stupid and placid back then. I very nearly did not vote for Al Gore. I almost voted for Nader.
I would have been very upset had I done it in retrospect. I think we were a very placid and
uninterested electorate back then. I think now we're converging on one of the major turning
points in my lifetime, and anyone who remains placid about this election needs to seriously
reexamine where they're at."

Issues Terror Warning for Calif., N.M.
Another distraction from the economy and the mess in Iraq
The FBI warned police in California and New Mexico that it received information about
possible terrorist activity in their states. However, the warning wasn't specific about particular
targets or a method of attack, a federal law enforcement official said Thursday.
The FBI decided to pass along the threat
information but warned that it was considered
unsubstantiated and uncorroborated, said the official, who spoke only on condition of anonymity.
The vague warning was distributed to authorities
in California, New Mexico and some other
Western states the official did not identify.
Be afraid, people.
Be afraid and stay afraid.
Be afraid and trust Bush.
Be afraid, trust Bush, voite GOP and be afraid.
"A fascist is one whose lust for money or power
is combined with such an intensity of intolerance
toward those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions or nations as to make him
ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends. The supreme god of a fascist, to which his
ends are directed, may be money or power; may be a race or a class; may be a military clique or an
economic group; or may be a culture, religion, or a political party."
--FDR's VP Henry Wallace, who never even met the Illegal White House Gangster Attribution
by Arianna Huffington
Anger, and the wisdom of keeping it in check, were the subject of a pair of competing briefings I attended
on Monday afternoon at the Four Seasons hotel, which is the hub of behind-the-scenes campaign activity
away from the Fleet Center. One featured Harold Ickes of America Coming Together, which has now raised
$80 million, a substantial chunk of which will be spent in August taking the whip to Bush's hide. The other
featured pollster Stan Greenberg discussing the mindset of potential Nader voters. "Anger," he said, "is the
defining characteristic of the Nader voter. They loathe Bush but they don't want to cast their vote for the
lesser-of-two-evils. They want to vote on principle." In other words, if Kerry is going to convince them to
pass on Nader and vote for him, he's going to have to show them that he stands for more than just not being Bush.
Kerry's taking a bodacious gamble on the "show no anger" gambit.
Is that the wise move?
Are we playing nice now so we can surprise attack later?
Or are we going to play nice all the way to Bush's inaugural?
Did you see the roaring ovation Wesley Clark got last night?
"Have you noticed that most presidents have
Clinton had Roger; Carter had Billy. You know who the embarrassing

"Teresa Kerry is real. She will be who she
is -- multifaceted, refined yet earthy, cerebral
and sensual, focused and passionate. Even as she plays the role of supportive spouse,
she does it her way -- she spoke last night of her own experiences, making it clear she
has her own identity and is not just the woman's auxiliary of John Kerry. And then there's
Laura Bush. I do not dislike Laura. She's an attractive and gracious woman. However,
she seems ... artificial. I suspect when she's off camera Karl Rove pulls her battery pack
and tucks her away in a pink satin box."
Subject: Ann Coulter's censorship
Bart, I've been reading your site religiously
for the last three years,
and I know about your feelings about Ann Coulter.
Considering her latest screaming and yelling
about how she was "censored"
by "USA Today" because the paper thought that her latest column was
incoherent even by her own usual standards, am I really the only person
who asks "Where the hell are Sigourney Weaver and a forklift when you need 'em?"
Paul, not sure what that means but it sounds funny :)

I don't understand USA Today.
They knew they were hiring a flame-throwing Nazi bitch, and then they're
all surprised that she wrote a

me, who already has a ton of money, a bunch more.
He didn't want to waste that money making sure that everyday Americans could afford health care.
Or properly equipping our men and women in Iraq - who have to buy their own body armor."

Tulsa D.A. refuses to prosecute murder
The killer pursued Howard after he was left stunned and helpless. Howard was attempting to flee
when he was hit from behind. After the victim was rendered unconscious, his killer beat him savagely.
Tavern manager Josh Martin was also severely beaten.
The night of the attack, Terry Badgewell,
a transient with a documented history of violent crime,
fled the crime scene and was later arrested on two complaints of assault with a deadly weapon.
He was covered in the blood of Martin and Howard. Howard's family and friends trusted that charges would be filed.
They were wrong.

Subject: Kerry's space suit
As I understand it, the Kerry visit to the
Kennedy Space center wasn't necessarily for campaign publicity.
He wanted to see the kinds of things that were being done to prevent any further tragedies. He had no choice
but to wear the suit which keeps all dust particles and hair away from highly sensitive scientific equipment.
Anything else would literally risk the lives of astronauts. No pictures where intended to be published from this visit,
but someone at NASA apparently sold one to the "liberal media" who decided to pass it on to the repugnicans.
There is no way one can avoid saying or
doing something that can be fictitiously characterized by the dripping
that has become the republican party. It's quite literally the only thing they are good at. So don't criticize Kerry for
attempting to see for himself what NASA is doing to protect the people we send into space. It's something that Bush
should have done a long time ago. However, if I were Kerry, I would have issued a press release explaining the purpose
of his visit, and asking, "What makes a candidate look more ridiculous? This [displaying the picture of Kerry in his
protective suit] or this [showing the picture of Bush in his flight suit under the sign that says "Mission Accomplished!"].
And then promise the republicans and the
Faux Whore press, that every time they showed the picture of Kerry,
Kerry's people would discuss the propriety of spending millions of taxpayer dollars on a cynical campaign stunt that
was ill-timed and in highly questionable taste. If it were me, I'd also issue a statement that Bush shouldn't put on that
flight suit again, unless he can provide proof that he fulfilled his military obligation.
But, the Kerry people haven't asked me to advise their campaign either.
Jim, my good friend. I agree with paragraphs 2 and 3, but not
Kerry didn't "find himself" (my words) in that space suit.
He put his arms and legs in it and hitched it up.
Doesn't he realize he's in a political campaign where image is
You said, "He had no choice but to wear the suit..."
He can learn all he wants about space after getting elected.
Kerry could learn from both of us.

Bush's search for clean Cuban hookers goes awry
Bush launched an attack against Castro and his alleged promotion of sex tourism in Cuba.
Our fearless leader dug way back to a 1992 speech given by Castro to prove his case.
"The dictator welcomes sex tourism," Bush told
a room of law enforcement officials in Florida.
"Here's how he bragged about the industry," Bush said. "This is his quote: 'Cuba has the cleanest
and most educated prostitutes in the world.'"
As it turns out, Bush had lifted that quotation
not from an actual Castro speech but rather from
a 2001 essay written by a Dartmouth student. Sadly, the student made the quotation up..
All the trouble in the world, and most of it cauysed by failed
Bush policies and screwups,
why is Bush picking a fight with Cuban hookers?

Form of Poison Ricin Found in Baby Food;
Man Being Sought for Questioning
IRVINE, Calif. July 29, 2004 - Poison found
in two jars of baby food purchased at the same store
was not in a deadly form and the two infants who ate small of amounts of the banana yogurt did not even fall ill, officials said.
The contamination of the Gerber brand food
was disclosed Wednesday by police, who are searching for a man
they believe may have witnessed the tampering. Charles Dewey Cage, 47, of Irvine, was "in the area at a relevant time,"
said Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas.

Our nation cannot go on like this - squandering brave young lives and hundreds of billions
of dollars on unnecessary war, losing old friends and creating new enemies, abandoning the
middle class while making the rich richer and saddling our children with unsustainable debt and pollution.
The Kerry-Edwards administration, unlike
the Cheney-Bush agenda, will invest in jobs, health care
and education, not Halliburton and other corporate cronies. We will practice transparency, not evasion.
When trouble comes, we will find solutions, not scapegoats. We will protect our borders without bending our Constitution.

Kerry and War
Needs Firmer Position on Bush's Pre-War Lies
Kerry, as the world already knows, is not a black-and-white kind of thinker, especially when
it comes to foreign policy. That's good - it should give voters a real sense of choice this fall, given
George Bush's tendency to view the world in absolutes. But it's not an excuse for fudging every issue.
Kerry's history on the critical Iraq question has been impossibly opaque. He voted to authorize
Bush to go to war. He voted against $87 billion to pay for extra costs - after offering an amendment
to raise the money by increasing taxes on the wealthy. That produced the infamous explanation,
"I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.''
Mr. Kerry is very, very sorry for that phrasing.
His campaign is well aware that if he had simply said,
"I voted to spend the money - I just opposed increasing the deficit," the Republicans would have been
deprived of one of their most salient commercials.

So Bart Idiot,
I see you now are calling Mr. Nader a "son of a bitch".
You haven't seen F-911 yet?
Will all your questions be this stupid?
It was the Democratic Senators that wouldn't
the papers looking into the Florida Vote Scam.
Nader doesn't have the power you keep ascribing
He's NOT a Democrat Senator!
You are a Total Idiot for being an ostrich on this.
I'm an idiot because I can do the math?
Why do you think the GOP is paying to put Nader on state's ballots?
Why do you want another 4 years of Bush?
You are obviously a Shill for the Democrats,
since you won't concede this point.
I used to be cordial in my letters to you...NO MORE!
My life's over if I don't have your approval...
Nader was working on making your car safe
in the 1960's,
and you slam him? You, are full of shit!
That was in the sixties.
What has he done for us lately, besides deliver Bush into the White House?
You are obviously retarded to be slamming the ONLY consumer protection advocate who still lives!
No, he's Bush's best friend.
Where are your eyes?
All that is left is Corporations, and you slam Nader, who is trying to stop this Fascism.
Nader makes Bush president and you complain
Bart, you are a pathetic, uninformed clown, who really has NO CLUE!
One of us wants to stop Bush, one of us
wants to help Bush.
Keep drinking your BOOZE!
Keep playing your POKER!
Keep believing your delusions about the Democrats saving your DumbAss...
Democrats have a chance to defeat Bush -
They are building their "New World Order",
Hitler did, only he called it a "New Order"
There you are, waving the flag for them!
Democrats have a chance to defeat Bush -
A Royal Fuck You Bart Prick!
Happy New World Order.
Best Regards, (ha
