"Let's not forget what we did in the 1990s.
We balanced the budget.
We paid down the debt. We created 23 million new jobs. We lifted
millions out of poverty and we lifted the standard of living for the
middle class. We just need to believe in ourselves, and we can do it again."
--John Kerry, last night, Attribution
Billion in Iraq Spending Missing
We know where that money went - right to the B.F.E.E.
U.S. civilian authorities in Baghdad failed to keep good track of nearly $1 billion
in Iraqi money spent for reconstruction projects and can't produce records to show
whether they got some services and products they paid for, anew audit concludes.
The Coalition Provisional Authority paid
nearly $200,000 for 15 police trucks without
confirming they were delivered, and auditors have not located them, the report from the
CPA's Inspector General said. Officials also didn't have records to justify the $24.7 million
for replacing Iraqi currency which used to carry Saddam's portrait, the report said.
The report, released in Iraq late Wednesday,
is the first formal audit of contracting procedures
under the CPA, which oversaw billions in reconstruction spending that critics say was doled out
without proper controls. The agency's defenders say it did the best it could given the pressure
of operating in a war zone and trying to get reconstruction going quickly.
The one-star general overseeing reconstruction
contracts in Iraq said in response to the audit
that the lack of documentation didn't prove the money was wasted.
Right - it wasn't wasted - it was stolen
by Bush and his gang of thugs.
Will Kerry mention this - or would that be rude?
"He is her favorite. Ron can do no wrong. I

Case Against George W. Bush
by Ron Reagan
"The Bush Administration cannot be trusted...Does anyone really favor an administration
that so shamelessly lies? One that so tenaciously clings to secrecy, not to protect the
American people, but to protect itself? That so willfully misrepresents its true aims and so
knowingly misleads the people from whom it derives its power? I simply cannot think so.
And to come to the same conclusion does not make you guilty of swallowing some liberal
critique of the Bush presidency, because that's not what this is. This is the critique of a
person who thinks that lying at the top levels of his government is abhorrent. Call it the
honest guy's critique of George W. Bush."
""Why don't they get new jobs if they're unhappy
-- or go on Prozac?"
--Susan Sheybani, Bush spokeswoman, saying American workers unhappy
with flipping burgers should find new jobs -- or pop a Prozac Attribution
Bush wrote Kerry's acceptance speech
"I don't know how much of John Kerry's acceptance speech the candidate penned himself.
I don't know who suggested which lines, how many drafts there were, or who edited them.
But I can tell you who wrote the speech: George W. Bush. The power of the speech, reflected
in a deafening series of ovations that consumed the FleetCenter tonight, came not from Kerry's
biography or the themes he brought to the campaign two years ago. It came from his expression
of widespread, pent-up outrage at the offenses of the Bush administration."

Fla. GOP Advises Some to Vote Absentee
"Jeb Bush has tried for months to persuade Florida voters touchscreen voting machines are reliable.
His own party apparently hasn't gotten the message. The state GOP paid for a flier critical of the
new technology and sent it to some south Florida voters where a primary election is scheduled next month.
"The new electronic voting machines do not have a paper ballot to verify your vote in case of a recount,''
the message states. "Make sure your vote counts. Order your absentee ballot today."
That's what Democrats and a coalition of
civil rights groups have been saying in legal challenges,
trying to force the state to provide a paper trail in case the touchscreen machines malfunction."
The voting machines in rich, Republican precincts will work fine.
The voting machines in poor, Democratic precincts will not work fine.

Democrats are leaders. Democrats are fighters. Our country was attacked. We are at war, our
nation is at risk -- engaged in a life or death struggle against terrorists who are seeking nuclear

Excuse me, Mr. Bartcop but what the fuck is wrong with your values?
Nothing is the fuck wrong with my values.
Maybe you need to explain yourself.
You're better than this.
Better than what?
How can I respond if you fail to say something?
If you're going to get your panties in a twist over something like a completely harmless photo,
You are apparently giving me your Nancy
Grace guarantee that this was nothing,
that the GOP won't turn this into another "Kerry claims he invented the Internet,"
that voters are smart enough to look past the imagery they see and vote for substance,
that Kerry should go on climbing into monkey suits to be ridiculed by the media.
I disagree, ...and I can do it without screaming insults at you.
Don't you remember the year 2000?
Don't you know that the GOP
and their whore media will turn every ant hill into the Grand Tetons?
...then go be a poster child for Democrats
who let themselves be embarrassed over every little thing.
Or go be a Republican - they are the party of juvenile idiots.
Rose, thank goodness you felt comfortable
enough to speak frankly.
Manners would stop most people from being so honest.
...and thanks for the invitation to leave your Democratic party.
"As a matter of fact, that's what they didn't

you should watch "Outfoxed." It's a great movie that says why people like you

Scaife Strategy: Smother Teresa
I thought her name was spelled "Theresa..."
Colin McNickle did not enter the Democratic Convention as an ordinary reporter.
As the editorial page editor for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, a newspaper owned by
eccentric rightist billionaire Richard Mellon-Scaife, McNickle came to Boston as an
agent provocateur. "What happens when a conservative commentator infiltrates DemoCon2004?"
the Tribune-Review asked in pre-convention promotion of McNickle's coverage. McNickle
answered that question on Sunday, July 25 by provoking a spat with Teresa Heinz-Kerry.

Hey there Bartcop,
I just wanted to let you know that I finally found work.
In fact, I managed to get 3 separate jobs offers all in the same week, meaning I can work 7 days a week if I want to.
But in the year and a half that I've been
out of work (while American companies slowly realized that cheap Indian
programmers are quite as good as their industrialized nation counterparts), I've dumped every single charity I used to
give generously to except you. No more money to the DNC or John Kerry (I figured the hundreds I gave to Howard Dean
to help them find their balls would have to suffice), no more money even to the ACLU or other American charities (until Bush's
approval is a lot lower than it is, America hardly deserves my help if they won't even read enough to realize they need it).
But you man, you... You always kept up the
fight. You never cowered in the shadow of the Rovian threats.
You did, frankly, what every American should have done - you saw an undeniable threat to your home country and fought back
with no holds barred. Not by calling a bunch of rich friends, not by pulling on strings of power that you and you alone controlled,
but by employing that uniquely American individual spirit of "Don't Tread On Me" and doing what anyone average Joe could have,
and should have done.
I love all the Liberal writers and radio
hosts; but America didn't gain it's independence the first time because
of the actions of
a few already powerful people who came to their senses. It was guys like you Bartcop, who knew that fighting for freedom when
it was attacked was more important that losing a fixed contest: getting a nice little uniform, and politely lining up in a traditional rank
to face King George's cannons. In 1776 it was a brave man with a musket, in 2004 it's a brave man with a webpage.
I nearly had to cancel my subscription,
my rent was due in 2 days and I only had 7 bucks to my name. But the tide
and I'm very proud to have put the support I could offer behind the most deserving fighter of them all. And I'm very happy to be
able to continue to support you right on into "The Great Kerry Cleanup of 2004-2012".
Rex, thanks for that.

Greg Palast blasts Kerry
They're playing "Johnnie B. Goode" over the loudspeakers.
Democrats are hopping up and down like JFK never went to Dallas;
like Bill Clinton didn't blow it for us; like there's a chance to bring the boys home alive;
like America can crawl out of Dick Cheney's bunker and look at the sun again.
He told us tonight about some poor bastard
in Ohio whose job evaporated when his company
unbolted the equipment and sent it south. Hey, Johnnie, didn't you vote for NAFTA?
We applauded when he said the White House
should stop treating teachers and school kids
like fugitives from justice and help them out. But, Johnnie, didn't you vote for George Bush's
"No Child's Behind Left" assault on public education?
Then there was that little story meant to
show us all he is a Man for All Seasons, above party politics.
"I broke with many in my own party," he said, "to vote for a balanced budget, because I thought it was
the right thing to do." No, John, it wasn't. It was craven political cowardice, going with the anti-government
hysteria that put a knife into the heart of the programs you cried over tonight.
Hmmm, not sure we should blame Kerry for
JFK's murder or Clinton's zipper.
Maybe Greg is having a bad week in Boston?

Nobody gives you a better deal that that.
''Like me, Kerry has laid his life on the line
and bled in battle, and that's going to make
for a better president. He's a man who listens to advice but makes his own decisions.
A man who has the right balance between being able to think through all aspects of a
problem and make strong, effective decisions."

Michael Moore to Film Florida on Election Day
"I am committed. I am coming to Florida," the
South Florida daily quoted Moore as saying.
"Together, we will guarantee to every Floridian that their vote will be counted this year."
Moore's promise comes amid continuing controversy
over the voting system in Florida and
concerns over the accuracy of touch-screen voting machines, which replaced the punch-card
ballots that became notorious in 2000.
Miami officials have admitted that the electronic
records of a 2002 Democratic primary
for gubernatorial elections were lost because of an electronic glitch.
The new machines do not produce a printed record of the voting.
Not sure how Mike is going to cover the
but I know he'll do his best.

"He said he was against nation building.
What I didn't realize was that he meant only our nation."
--Al Franken, on President Pinhead Attribution
of the Trivial
by Paul Krugman, who always hits a home run
"There are two issues here, trivialization and bias, but they're related. Somewhere along the line,
TV news stopped reporting on candidates' policies, and turned instead to trivia that supposedly
reveal their personalities. We hear about Mr. Kerry's haircuts, not his health care proposals.
We hear about George Bush's brush-cutting, not his environmental policies. Even on its own terms,
such reporting often gets it wrong, because journalists aren't especially good at judging character.
Bush's American soldier body count in Iraq
912 dead American soldiers.
Drip, drip, drip - young lives go down the drain
the real flip-flopper please stand up?
by Gene Lyons
Asked if he'd voted to give the president" the benefit of the doubt, "Kerry said no."
Issues of war and peace,"he emphasized," go outside of partisan politics. When the
president of the United States says, "This is the way I'm going to do something,"
you ought to have the right to believe that president. And if there's anything that
makes me more motivated about this [campaign], it is the fact that he went back on
his word with respect to an issue that involves the lives of our young Americans.
Americans know that this president did not go to war as a last resort." By the way,
Bush himself threatened to veto the $87 billion Kerry voted for because it limited
millionaires' tax cuts. What Kerry voted against was financing the war with borrowed
money. Maybe that's too complicated for a 30-second TV spot. It's when Kerry
says these things to Bush's face that they're apt to sting.

Hired Hack Deserved Teresa's Ire
by Joe Conason
A few days after Kerry and his wife celebrated their second Christmas together, the Tribune-Review
ran a column suggesting that Mr. Kerry had been enjoying a "very private" relationship with another woman.
There was no byline on the story and no evidence to support the salacious insinuation. There was nothing to it,
in fact, except pure malice.
When fresh accusations about her husband's
fidelity erupted earlier this year in the right-wing press,
Ms. Heinz Kerry could scarcely have been surprised that the smear's most eager purveyors included
Internet sites financed by Mr. Scaife and his family foundations. Those "news sources" have also impugned
Mr. Kerry's patriotism, maligned his military service and distorted his voting record. They happen to be
operated by the same discredited scribblers who once tried to convince America that Bill and Hillary Clinton
were murderers and drug smugglers.
