Is The Shame?
by Bob Herbert
"Later, at a press conference under the hot Crawford sun, Mr. Cleland told reporters:
"The question is, where is George Bush's honor? Where is his shame?" Mr. Cleland reminded
reporters of the scurrilous attacks by Bush forces against McCain in 2000 and said: "Keep in mind,
this president has gone after three Vietnam veterans in four years. That's got to stop."
In what is surely the most important election
of the last half-century, we seem trapped in the
politics of the madhouse. What is incredible is that these attacks on men who served not just
honorably, but heroically, are coming from a hawkish party that is controlled by an astonishing
number of men who sprinted as far from the front lines as they could when they were of fighting
age and their country was at war."
"I'm the real hero - did you see me on the USS Lincoln?"
Subject: a thought...
A lot of people I talk to these days about
politics are definitely unhappy about things in this country, but keep
Things like "John Kerry isn't telling us what he will do differently" .
Please, don't depend on the mainstream media to feed pro-Kerry information to you, its NOT going to happen!
Take a few minutes and look at the man we need to elect President he has some good ideas that May surprise you!

"One of the most agreeable aspects of the Republican
Party is that there's minimal risk
of running into celebrities. At a Democratic political get-together, the only way to tell who
the senators are is that they're the only two guys in the room you don't recognize: Everyone
else is Meryl Streep, Bruce Springsteen, Barbra Streisand, Ben Affleck, the Dixie Chicks."

Man Burns Marine Van After GI Son's Death
"The father then walked into the garage, picking up a propane tank, a can of gasoline
and a lighting device, police Capt. Tony Rode said. He smashed the van's window,
got inside and set it ablaze, despite attempts by the Marines to stop him, Rode said.
The Marines, reservists who are members
of a military Casualty Assistance Calls Officer team,
pulled Arredondo, 44, from the burning vehicle and extinguished the flames on him, police said.
None of the Marines was injured but the van was gutted, officials said.
"The father was in disbelief, same as any of us
would be after hearing this kind of news,"
Rode said. 'But then the father basically loses it. You can only imagine what this father
was going through. He snapped, to say the least.'"
"Some people have to respect for others..."
"This is his scream that his child is dead.
The war needs to stop."

"Like anybody else in the world who is sane,
I am very much worried about Iran

Path of Arrogance in Iraq
"The independent team rejected the Bush administration's claim that the Abu Ghraib mistreatment
was the work of a few rogue soldiers. The number of military police and military intelligence
specialists who will be charged with criminal wrongdoing may be limited, but the panel traced some
of the blame all the way to the office of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld.
The arrogant "we know best" attitude of
the Pentagon's civilian leadership demands condemnation.
The halfhearted acceptance of responsibility that Rumsfeld offered in his testimony in May before the
Senate and House armed services committees doesn't let him off the hook for failing to provide
consistent guidelines on the treatment of prisoners."
"Arrogance is really ugly in some people..."

i'm so pissed right now- at my own party of placators and WIMPS.
no fight in them at all. they ust
bend over and take it. jesus. i swear.
what would it take to find a democrat with a bit of SPINE?
all this shit floats vets crap, and not
ONCE has kerry just STOOD UP AND
TOOK CHARGE OF THE DEBATE- he has let the media and the repugs like
buchanan and dole just take off and RUN with this story without anything to stop them.
it wouldn't take MUCH besides a couple of
TESTICLES to interrrupt this debate and
replace it with a new one- why hasn't he called bush a coward, a draft dodger, a little
snotty nosed grown child who never fought a day in his life?
why hasn't he said that about all these
damn chickenhawks who weigh in on this topic?
why is he so damned apologetic and/or SILENT in the face of ONSLAUGHT?
why? because he DON'T HAVE IT IN HIM.
i want to take him by the shoulders and shake the living shit out of him-
Tamara, Kerry wants to be polite.
He seems to want to fight this raging fire with good manners.
"The city is drawing the line when it comes
to Central Park. The group United for Peace and Justice,
which is expecting a quarter-million people for its rally on Sunday has been denied use of the park.
The reason cited by the city for shutting off the park to protestors? Concern over the damage it
would to do to the grass. 100 million dollars spent on security, and they're hung up on lawn care?
Honestly, if next week comes and our worst problem is divots, I'll be pretty damn pleased."

"The abuses sadly bear repetition. Forced nudity was common, the generals' report confirms,
and stemmed from the importation to Abu Ghraib of techniques used in Afghanistan and at
Guant namo Bay. "They simply carried forward the use of nudity into the Iraqi theatre of operations,"
General Fay observes. Prisoners were frequently stripped and hooded, then left in extreme heat
or cold for hours. One detainee was handcuffed naked and forced to crawl on his stomach as
US soldiers urinated and spat on him; later he was sodomised. The importation process from
Guantanamo also led to the use of dogs to frighten prisoners. In one case, US military personnel
held an unmuzzled dog within inches of two naked and screaming teenage Iraqis and discussed
whether the prisoners could be terrified into losing control of their bowels."

Can you tell me what they are, and let me
know where to corroborate
the "fabricated lies" that they were supposed to rebut?
Whoa, did we forget the first part of our conversation?
I know that your site is pro-kerry (No,
it's pro-truth) and I'm trying to gather info
from as many sources as possible before the election (undecided libertarian)
I have read Bernie Goldberg's book, BIAS, (Goldberg is a lying whore) but I still think
that the network news business is ratings driven. Naturally the bigger stories take up the
limited time of a 30 minute or 60 minute newscast. So the internet is the perfect place for
those who really want to make an informed desicion.
I was leaning towards Kerry, but since he
made his vietnam service such a prominent part
of his resume, the new charges by his fellow vets are disturbing.
If the Swift Boat Liars said Honest Abe Lincoln was dishonest, would you believe them, too?
I'm sure that Bush loves it and he can take
the high road and ask for the elimination of ALL
the "527's" something that Kerry can't possibly want. But Kerry looks bad trying to shut them down
instead of proving them false, and asking Bush to denounce them when the position of the democratic
party is that Bush can't open his mouth without lying makes it strange that they would seek his
endorsement and protection, especially from the veterans that I thought were Kerry's guys.
It would'nt be very disnified, but it seems
that Kerry could drop his pants and show the scars
to prove what a liar Bob Dole is about "He never even bled..."
I have sometimes given the reporters you mentioned in your challenge the benefit of the doubt
Wait, now I understand - you read Myth of the Liberal media...)
...because they seemed outnumbered and outgunned,
(Sean Hannity is no Dan Rather)
Now I feel I can't trust anyone, and it's up to me to find (or guess at) the truth that is always
in the middle when position are so far apart. Any info you can provide is appreciated.
Glenn, bad assumption that the truth is always in the middle.
If a democrat says Hank Aaron hit 750 home runs, and the Swift Boat Liars
say he never played the game, don't assume 375 is the amount of homers Aaron hit.
Bottom line: Don't trust the Republicans.
The whole reason they want to talk about 1969 is so people like you won't ask
about the never-ending carbage in Iraq and the ruined economy in 2004.

--David Letterman Attribution
it seems every day i get more frustrated at the kerry campaign's lack of any semblance of common sense.
i cannot believe that they do not use the
monkey's own verbal mishaps (which occur daily) against him
in the kerry tv and radio ads. this is the most damning evidence of all that the leader of the free world is
a complete and utter moron. why not have a one minute outtake of the 7 minutes of the monkey sitting there
after being told by advisor andrew card that the second plane had struck the second world trade center
and that we were under attack?
this would be an unbelievably powerful image for the right wing to see in a TV ad.
Apparently the Democrats have a frocus group that told them "attack
ads are bad,"
but the Swift Boat Liars have cost Kerry a lot of ground with their attack ad.
Bush is the most corrupt moron to ever bungle a war that made
his family rich
but Kerry's afraid to point out any of the emporer's crimes or mistakes.
People say they don't like attack ads, but they work.
If we're going to lose again, I'd rather lose fighting than lose by wimping.

<SusanNY> Bart, I'm so glad you hate Nancy Grace - I have always hated her
<bart> Nancy Grace is so screwed, she
made Geragos represent Peterson :)
<bart> because NG hated Peterson, he's going to go free
Strange but true.
I think Peterson will be found "Not guilty," and he has Nancy Grace to thank for it.
If Nancy Grace only hated Peterson a 20 on the scale of 1-10,
If she hadn't stretched every ant hill into the Grand f-ing Tetons,
if she hadn't given her famous Nancy Grace guarantee that he was guilty,
so guilty that a trial wasn't even worth the taxpayer's time and money, Geragos
wouldn't have taken the case and California would've been successful at killing a
suspect with no crime scene, no murder weapon, no forensics, no witnesses and
a half-assed motive than can be explained by simple men-are-pigs lust.
"Thanks, Nancy! Want to get together
and have a drink when the trial's over?
I'll bring roses and some champagne,
we'll light candles and dim the lights
...and I'll thank you for saving me."

Subject: Bush's great economy
Hey, Bart. I love your page.
I haven't written anything before,
but I've just gotten so sick of Bush talking about how we've turned a corner,
that I felt I needed to vent a little.
We have not turned a corner.
Yesterday, the Census Bureau reported that,
during last year, the amount of
Americans living in poverty increased by 1.3 million. The group of Americans
who are uninsured increased even more than that, rasing to 1.4 million.
No, we have not turned a corner. The
car that this administration put our country
in to travel around that corner wrecked badly very long ago. That car was a lemon,
and this administration knew it was a lemon before they sold it to us. And they can
paint that lemon whatever color they like--they can decorate it as nicely as they please,
but the indisputable fact is that when you bite into it, it's still just as sour.
Keep up the great work, Bart.

Swift Boat Liars make Bush's Vietnam years newly relevant.
But Kerry is too polite to use that in this fight.
We were bound to get at least one good laugh
out of Swift Boat Veterans for Humongous Lies,
and what a pip it is. Upon being identified as the lawyer both for the Bush-Cheney campaign and
the Swift Boat Liars, Benjamin Ginsberg bravely offered his resignation to the campaign, which has
said repeatedly it has NO connection to the Liars.
He made the following poignant argument
in a letter to the president, which I know will touch you
as deeply as it did me (emphasis added): "I cannot begin to express my sadness that my legal
representations have become a distraction for the critical issues at hand in this election. I feel I
cannot let that continue, so I have decided to resign as national counsel to your campaign to ensure
that the giving of legal advice to decorated military veterans, which was entirely within the boundaries
of the law, doesn't distract from the real issues upon which you and the country should be focused."
Do you love it?"

Al Franken was on the local sports/guy talk

Last Wednesday's World
Poker Tour was really something.
They did three things I've never seen before.
One guy had to pee REAL bad,
but he had pocket Aces!
He asked the tournament director what his options were and he replied,
"If you leave, your hand is folded," so the guy starts doing squats and
running in place so he wouldn't resemble a senate Democrat fighting Bush.
Another time, a guy said,
"Raise," but then couldn't decide how much.
After a while, the other guy in the pot called "Clock" on him, meaning
he had one minute to make up his damn mind - never saw that before.
The biggest thing was the pot.
This was the biggest money tourney I've ever seen,
with over $4M in prize money - MUCH bigger than the "World Series of Poker."
The giant purse meant the last half hour, almost every pot had a million dollars in it.
Once, head-to-head, one guy got a "7-2, off-suit," the worst possible hand in poker,
and he went "all in" and bluffed the other guy out - amazing.

I'm a Viet Nam vet, and the attacks on Kerry
are the most infuriating thing I've ever seen in politics.
Kerry never did anything but get shot and go home and protest the stinking misbegotten war, which is
so much like the stinking misbegotten Iraq war. I think liberal people generally and Democrats
specifically are sunk up to their hubcaps in trying to be fair, while they are getting screwed.
What Kerry needs to do is forget all about
the Viet Nam horseshit and just give a mocking speech
in which he talks about what Bush said about Iraq and what he has delivered, and how the recruiting
offices of Al Qaeda are booming because of Bush. He needs to really get personal and mock that
smirking sarcastic occupant of the White House. Kerry has the guts and he has the brains, but he's
not using them to best effect.
Kerry needs to pull the wings off the Republican
fly that's in our soup.
That's what I think.
