  • Hussein May Be Weapon for Dems

    NY Newsday ^ | December 19, 2003 | Ross K. Baker (PolySci Professor at Rutgers)
    George W. Bush has to restrain himself from running victory laps to celebrate the Saddam Hussein capture. Republican leaders are gleeful about facing a Democratic ticket likely led by Howard Dean. So, it may seem odd, even perverse, to suggest that rooting the Iraqi dictator out of his hole might actually be an ace-in-the-hole for Democrats. For starters, seizing Hussein shifts the focus of the hunt for America's most dangerous enemies from Iraq to the rugged Afghanistan-Pakistan border where Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar, the deposed leader of the Taliban, are said to lurk. As elusive as Hussein was...

    Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair, wrote an amazing editorial in the latest issue of the magazine pointing out some of Bush's most dubious accomplishments during his tenure as president. Here are just some of the many facts Graydon puts forth. 2 - Number of nations George W. Bush has attacked and taken over since coming into office. 10 million - Estimated number of people worldwide who took to the streets in opposition to the invasion of Iraq, setting an all-time record for simultaneous protest. $100 billion - Estimated cost of the war in Iraq to U.S. citizens by...

    MADISON, Wis. - Former Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader called Democrats "chronic whiners" for continuing to accuse him of spoiling the 2000 presidential election for Al Gore. "They should realize that the retrospect on Florida concluded Gore won Florida," the consumer activist told the Wisconsin State Journal on Saturday. "It was stolen from the Democrats. And they should concentrate on the thieves and the blunderers in Florida, not on the Green Party." A media-sponsored review of more than 175,000 disputed ballots found that Gore would have won by a small margin if there had been a complete statewide recount....
  • Gore Blasts Bush for Disbanding Senate Intelligence Cte., Charges Nixon-like Coverup over 911

    Al Gore has charged that the Bush administration is attempting to cover-up the 9/11 investigation by dismissing the Senate Intelligence Committee. In a speech sponsored by the Communist Group, Gore dismissed the partisan Democrat memo advising the committee to use intelligence information for political purposes as "trivial", and accused Bush of over-reaching in his authority, in much the same way as Richard Nixon did when he fired his Chief Investigator during the Watergate scandal. It was reported here that Senator Frist disbanded the Senate Intellignce Committee after the partisan memo revealed it would be unable to carry out its...

    Are we better off now than we were in 2000? When my husband, Thomas, and I voted in the last presidential election, two interesting things occurred. First, Thomas was told his vote had already been cast, which was definitely untrue. "How could someone have gotten away with voting as Thomas Weills?" we asked, since we had to have an ID and voting card and be on the ballot list to vote. In all the time I've been married to Thomas, I have never seen his last name duplicated. The second thing occurred as I waited for Thomas to fill out...

    The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Struggling online magazine publisher Salon Media Group said its chief executive officer, Michael O'Donnell, is leaving the company after seven years. The San Francisco-based company, which has been battling to survive, gave no reason for O'Donnell's departure in an announcement Thursday. A call to O'Donnell for comment was not immediately returned. O'Donnell will be replaced as CEO by Salon founder David Talbot, who is the company's chairman and editor-in-chief. Elizabeth Hambrecht, Salon's chief financial officer, will inherit O'Donnell's title as president. A former software sales executive, O'Donnell joined Salon as president and publisher...

    So you think you accomplished something by stealing another election and putting that dummy goon "Ahhnuld" in as Governor. Well he's an idiot just like that other installed resident George (imbecile) W. Bush. The reason California's economy is so bad is the fault of the white house resident and his moronic economic policies. Also, his Enron buddies screwed California with the energy contracts. So after Ahhnie screws California royally and the nation sees what corrupt fools W and the repuggies are, the Democrats will take control of the nation again for 40 years. Hasta La Vista baybee

Matt will have more on this in the morning, but in the meantime, inspired by a different Texan, I'd like to issue my own personal response: Mr. President, I'm a blogger. I know blogs. Bloggers are friends of mine. And your site, sir, is not a blog.We welcome all readers of this new somewhat blog-like site to use this as an open thread to discuss what you think of it, because the Bush folks aren't interested in...

    Regardless of what you think about Grey Davis, we should all be able to agree that we must now stop this attempted hijacking of the democratic process. Impeaching Clinton ...Florida and the 2000 election ... Redistricting in Texas ... now California... What makes the Right Wing think they can just bully and buy their way into power? If we allow this recall to win, we will be setting a dangerous precedent. In this unfair process, a candidate receiving just 30% of the vote could beat Davis, even if the governor receives 49%. Our governor was elected fair and square just...

    Talk-radio titan Rush Limbaugh is being investigated for allegedly buying thousands of addictive painkillers from a black-market drug ring. The moralizing motormouth was turned in by his former housekeeper - who says she was Limbaugh's pill supplier for four years. Wilma Cline, 42, says Limbaugh was hooked on the potent prescription drugs OxyContin, Lorcet and hydrocodone - and went through detox twice. "There were times when I worried," Cline told the National Enquirer, which broke the story in an edition being published today. "All these pills are enough to kill an elephant - never mind a man." Cline could not...
  • Babs: The Myth of "Big Government"

    What is "Big Government?" We've been conditioned to believe these are bad words - but when Hurricane Isabel ripped through the East Coast last week, leaving many homes and businesses significantly damaged in its wake, Bush told disaster relief workers and governors of the affected states, "If you need help, let us know." This was not Bush showing his "compassionate" side... this is what the federal government does -it helps people in need. Contrary to Republican slogans against "Big Government" or "Tax and Spend Liberals," if you look at the reality, government spending is a key part of what makes...

    NEW YORK--"Have the Democrats totally flipped their lids?" asks David Brooks in The Weekly Standard, quasi-official organ of the Bush Administration. "Because every day some Democrat seems to make a manic or totally over-the-top statement about George Bush, the Republican party, and the state of the nation today." True, Democrats loathe Dubya with greater intensity than any Republican standard-bearer in modern political history. Even the diabolical Richard Nixon--who, after all, created the EPA, went to China and imposed price controls to stop corporate gouging--rates higher in liberal eyes. "It's mystifying," writes Brooks. Let me explain. First but not foremost, Bush's...

Now it's how much he's doing with it By CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER Bill Moyers may have his politics, but his deferential demeanor and almost avuncular television style made him the Mr. Rogers of American politics. So when he leaves his neighborhood to go to a "Take Back America" rally and denounces George W. Bush's "government of, by and for the ruling corporate class," leading a "right-wing wrecking crew" engaged in "a deliberate, intentional destruction of the United States way of governing," you know that something is...

    Q: Political experts say your moderate views would make you a strong candidate against President Bush (news - web sites). But they also say those same views make it difficult for you to win the Democratic nomination because so many party activists are to your left. How do you connect with those Democrats? A: After 30 years in public service, I have a record. I am what I am, I believe what I believe, and I'm going to stand for what I think is right for the country. That's the test of leadership, and it's what the voters are looking...

    Johnny Depp is feeling patriotic - about France. The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star slammed the United States over Iraq in an interview in the German magazine Stern this week. "America is dumb, is something like a dumb puppy that has big teeth - that can bite and hurt you, aggressive," he was quoted as saying. Depp lives in France with the French singer and actress Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children. He said he was delighted when he saw that French fries had been rechristened "freedom fries" in the U.S. Capitol canteen. "Nothing made me happier than...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- In 2000, Bush campaigned upon meaningless slogans and the fact that he was a former president's son. His true vision for America did not appear until after 9-11. Looking at past presidents, those who entered into office with a firm vision of where they wanted America to be when they left became the most successful in achieving their agendas. Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Bill Clinton are just a few presidents in the last century who have been able to dream of a better America before taking office. All of these presidents...
