They sell barf bags at your pharamacy? Last time I tried to pick some up, the pharmacist said he had none, and had no idea where to get them from.

I'm betting they run this last.

And the lead in, "Breaking his silence after 30 years..."

What a lie.

Wow, Robert Duval. I'll have to make sure I watch so I can hear what he's got to say about Spielberg.

I have lived in Austin since 1970 and i can tell you from experience that Ben Barnes, in my opinion, is a truly corrupt politician in every sense of the word. The liberals at CBS who are openly pro Kerry will never tell the whole story. They never do.

Well, when they say Cheney got five deferments, according to the Washington Post, that's what he got: four 2-Ss and then the deferment for the child.

So Kerry got the same damn thing!

While we're waiting....I ordered POISON: The Unauthorized Biography of Kitty Kelley from Amazon ($2.95 + $3.49 s&h) today. The reviews said the author had difficulty tracking down her sordid past, but the dirt included such sleazy stuff as thefts and questionable reasons for leaving multiple colleges.

Re: "Hmmm...the segment on Robert Duval looks interesting..."

One of the great actors of our times... Not sure of his politics, but he was wonderful as Robert E. Lee in Gods and Generals and has been outstanding in each and every role sine his early days on "The Outer Limits" and "The Twlight Zone."

Well, Dan Blather has started the smear...

Off topic but can I ask here...this Larry Korb on O'Reilly right now claims Dan Barlett stated Bush agreed to attend Guard calls in Boston and "now changes his story".

As one who has closely followed this story, I have NEVER heard that before.

Korb claims (GET THIS) that Bush "brought this up" on the Today Show recently by saying he was proud of his service and would have gone to Vietnam if he had been called.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Bush didn't bring it up, the person asking the question brought it up.

GOD GIVE ME THE STRENGTH.

Of course O'Reilly is more or less clueless and sick of the whole thing. (Pesky facts are too much to keep track of so hope both Kerry and Bush service records should just be left alone).

Sorry for the off-topic.

He says that he recommnended a lot of people during that time.

There were 100's of names of people wanting to get into the ANG or the NG, he says. (Lie)

Lloyd Bentsen III, a Texas venture capitalist who joined the Guard at the same time as Bush, said allegations of nepotism are ridiculous, at least in his case. He said he applied for the post of accounting and finance officer in the unit and was accepted on the basis of a master's degree in business administration from Stanford University.

"The short version of the story is that I heard there was an opening in the Guard, and I went and applied," he said. "I was obviously qualified. There were openings for officers, but there weren't openings for enlisted personnel."

Barnes equates going into the National Guard with running away to Canada to escape the draft. I'm done!

Hard to keep up with the rats who are coming out in full force with this lame OLD issue. First we had Matthews discuss this crap and now Larry Korb is on with O'Reilly saying GWB made Vietnam an issue when he told Matt Lauer he served admirably. What the hell is he talking about? You simply cannot win with these sickening people who throw all rationale out the window. Will we survive 55 more days of their gutter tactics? Don't know if I can stand to watch more on CBS so I'll just read the thread.

President Bush cares about people other than himself.

John 'effin Kerry cares about himself, period.

Bush trained in Georgia!

1970, Bush was a celebrity; press release issued in Texas said he was the son of 41.

Barnes was young enough to be in the military during this time. Where's the second-guessing on *his* lack of service?

CBS has found some "new papers."

I don't get any of this, Bush scored more points than necessary, 50 I think, each and every year of his service, every year he was in and everything he did has a paper trail, what is the problem here? I must be missing something.

Dan Barlett on O'Reilly after Korb says years ago he did misspeak about Harvard and Boston service. He made a mistake, did not "change his story".

Back to Sixty Minutes coverage.

Look at Dan Rather, acting like he doesn't know this went on.

Do they REALLY want to go into this "getting people special treatment?"

Kerry had quite a few people; how did HE get into the Naval Reserve? How did he get out early????
