    If you think Bush brought honor and dignity to the White House simply because he is not getting BJs from interns... then you just might be a Bushbot If you think Bush was upfront, forthcoming and totally honest about his reasons for invading Iraq.... then you just might be a Bushbot If you think it is just a liberal myth that Bush is controlled by big business interests... then you just might be a Bushbot If you think Bush's positions on education, assault weapons, prescription drugs, etc. are just games he has to play and are really good for conservatism...
  • Gore Assails Bush Policies in U.S., Iraq

    Associated Press ^ | Thu, Aug 07, 2003 | RICHARD PYLE
    Emerging from the political shadows, former Vice President Al Gore (news - web sites) upbraided President Bush (news - web sites) on Thursday for pursuing a divisive, ideologically narrow agenda and misleading the nation on issues from Iraq (news - web sites) to the economy. The 2000 presidential nominee delivered the major policy address amid calls from some Democratic quarters for Gore to change his mind and join the crowded field of nine White House candidates. He tried to end that kind of talk with a simple declaration: "I am not going to join them, but later in the political...

    Will the Bush administration ignore the huge, unexpected drop in consumer confidence reported for June? Can it continue to gloss over the struggles of millions of U.S. families? Bush now faces the worst employment growth record of any administration since Herbert Hoover's. And its "tax cuts for the rich will help us all" mantra has an undertone of "who cares about the rest of you?" This administration really hasn't offered any workable strategies to lift the economy. The trickle-down strategy was deemed "voodoo economics" by Bush Sr. The deficit strategy may bankrupt us. Blaming Bill Clinton is just sophomoric. Will...

    Recently, I decided to go back through my website and reread some of the statements I have written and links to articles I have posted. 2003 has been such a tumultuous year already ... Now we have the publicized revelations that the Bush administration exaggerated evidence of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction and falsely implied that there were strong connections between al Qaeda and Iraq. Looking back, however, it is clear that these facts were known even before the war... but the media did not emphasize the story until it was already too late. For example, on March 26th we...

The license plate reads "Movies." Q: Tell me what was your reaction to Michael Moore's acceptance speech at the Academy Awards. Ebert: I heard him give the same speech the day before at the Independent Spirit Awards, where he stood up straight, and looked the audience in the eye, and took his time. It got a good response, although that audience was more receptive than the academy....

    The Techno-Voting Nightmare: Digital Vote Corruption First California-- then the 2004 Elections. Imagine that a rogue programmer gets access to a few networks of computers in the California special gubernatorial election. The programmer manipulates the software to count wrong, making sure that Darrell Issa or whoever is running on the Republican ticket gets 10% more votes than the voters really gave him. This software "fix" will do it's work then delete itself. The program can be made to randomize the bogus numbers so they are a little different percentage at each voting location. Now imagine that this is not some...

    NEW YORK - Kristin Gore, daughter of former Vice President Al Gore, is writing a novel. "Sammy's Hill," the story of a health care analyst working for an Ohio senator, is tentatively scheduled to come out in 2005. Financial terms were not disclosed. Gore, who will be published by Miramax Books, has a background in both show business and politics. She gave speeches during her father's 2000 presidential campaign and wrote for the animated Fox television series "Futurama." At least one child of a famous politician has become a successful author. Margaret Truman, daughter of President Truman, wrote a series...

    New York Observer ^ | Joe Conason
    According to contemporary political lore, the Bush clan exalts loyalty above every other virtue. Other politicians envy that inviolable code, whose power is reflected in the absence of leaks from the White House, in the lockstep obedience of politicians in Congress and around the country, and in the enormous cash donations from hundreds of wealthy "friends." This is how dynasties are built to endure. But at the highest level, in the inner councils, such feudal allegiances often require awful sacrifice and compromise. For those who now work for George W. Bush, loyalty means surrendering professional integrity and accepting public humiliation....
  • Bob Graham's Latest Five Letter Word: Impeachment

    The man can't even count past five, as was evidenced when Senator Bob Graham tried to count the letters in the word, 'deceit'. Now for his new five letter word: 'impeach'. Graham might not be smart enough to count the fingers of more than one hand, but he knows so much more about the articles of impeachment than we do. Oh, yes. He's brilliant. He was elected in Flori-duh, after all. But I have some questions for Mr. Graham: when will he call for the impeachment of his fellow senators who beg campaign fund raisers from someone whom the senate...

    The plain facts are shocking. Nine thousand families are currently homeless in New York City, the highest number on record. Indeed, homelessness is rising across the country as jobs vanish, incomes shrink and families are forced onto the streets. Meanwhile, George W. Bush is spending the astounding sum of $4 billion a month in taxpayers’ money to keep 146,000 U.S. troops in Iraq—troops who are being murdered on a daily basis, with over 70 dead American soldiers since the war ended on May 1 and no foreseeable improvement. This confusion of priorities is an embarrassment to this country and Mr....

    LA Times ^ | 07-06-03 | Ed Stockly
    <p>Call it the curse of the wartime president. Not a single U.S. president who has led the country into a major war has gone on to serve another full term in the White House. Not James Madison after the War of 1812. Not Woodrow Wilson after World War I.</p> <p>Not Lyndon Johnson after Vietnam. And not George H.W. Bush, who won a popular war but was unable to win over everyday Americans a second time. Will the current President Bush, who is expected to raise record amounts of money in his re-election bid, be able to buck this long and curious trend in American history? Every president who has led this country into full-scale war has paid a heavy price politically and personally. Most chose not to run for re-election and, upon leaving office, saw their vision for America rejected by the voters, their party defeated and their rivals elected. Some left office with shattered reputations, fading into a marginalized obscurity and irrelevance. And the few who survived grueling re-election campaigns were swiftly cut down by illness or assassination.</p>

    Salon ^ | July 4, 2003 | Joe Conason
    July 4, 2003 | "Slander" is defined in Bouvier's Law Dictionary as "a false defamation (expressed in spoken words, signs, or gestures) which injures the character or reputation of the person defamed." The venerable American legal lexicon goes on to note that such defamatory words are sometimes "actionable in themselves, without proof of special damages," particularly when they impute "guilt of some offence for which the party, if guilty, might be indicted and punished by the criminal courts; as to call a person a 'traitor.'" So how appropriate it is that in the rapidly growing Ann Coulter bibliography, last year's...

    Kids fear Ann Coulter "Mommy, make the scary lady go away." Those are the tearful words of Kaylee Brodkin, 7, of Gary, Ind., who for the last five days has been awakened in the middle of the night by terrifying nightmares - nightmares featuring television pundit/author Ann Coulter. With the ubiquitous Coulter currently on a national book tour, little Kaylee's sad story is far from an isolated occurrence. "More and more these days, we are seeing small children who have been traumatized by Ann Coulter," said Dr. Harmon Densmore, chief clinical psychologist at the Chartwell Children's Institute based at the...

    When aggression walks where diplomacy belongs, everyone is a loser The first notion that something sinister was happening was when the team led by George W. Bush stunned the world by snatching an election result from Al Gore's Democrats with less votes and with serious questions raised as to the legality of the process, especially in Florida. A strange process, to say the least. Soon after, September 11th occurred, the Pearl Harbor of the 21st century, complete with the Pentagon aircraft collision. Another strange process, to say the least. Then there was Afghanistan, on the crest of the wave. With...

    Was there ever a 4th of July so untimely? Has our national birthday ever fallen on a day that calls for less flag-waving, not more? Or more cries out for sober reflection rather than bottle rockets and Uncle Sam suits? I can't remember one. Still we'll be marching Friday. We'll parade down the middle of Central Street, in our uniform of choice (a visor and T-shirt of a girls softball team) behind the fire engines and ahead of the drum-and-bugle corps. Back home, the national ensign will be hung, per holiday routine, over the front porch. Out back, the Kingsfords...

Available locally, the ‘‘Operation: Hidden Agenda" playing cards are Kathy Eder’s answer to the U.S. military’s distribution of its most wanted list card collection — the Bush administration’s unique and portable list of 55 wanted former Iraqi government officials. Eder’s cards are a little different than George W.’s. There are pictures of U.S. government officials, like the four of spades featuring Central Command Commander in Chief Tommy...
