  • Is This How Straw Polls are won? (Mitt folks buying votes?) [As are the Paultards]

    NEW ORLEANS -- I just wrote about "Evangelicals for Mitt," a group of evangelical supporters of Mitt Romney who are pressing people to support Romney at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference straw poll. Afterward, I spoke to a young female delegate who said she planned to vote for Romney in the poll. I asked her how she had ended up at the conference. She said "Evangelicals for Mitt" had contacted her and offered to pay for her to have a limited-access ticket -- so long as she agreed to vote for Romney in the straw poll. Asked how "Evangelicals for...

    An error with an electronic voting system gave President Bush 3,893 extra votes in Columbus, Ohio. According to Franklin County’s unofficial results Bush received 4,258 votes compared to Kerry’s 260 votes in a precinct in Gahanna. However, records show only 638 voters cast ballots in that precinct. Bush actually only received 365 votes in that precinct. If this had repeated elsewhere in Ohio, it could have affected the outcome of the election. Workers checked the cartridge in the machine and each showed that 115 people voted for Bush on that machine. With other machines the total for Bush added up...

    ( - Bloggers on the liberal Democratic Underground website have overwhelmingly labeled Nov. 3, 2004, the day after Election Day, "more depressing" than Sept. 11, 2001 in a poll of online members. Seventy-two percent of poll takers said they believed the day Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) conceded defeat in the presidential election was more tragic than the day more than 3,000 Americans were killed in the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and on a hijacked plane that crashed in a Pennsylvania field. One member, "Big Blue Marble," said "I have...

    It's tough to be a Republican. It's tough to be a Republican in 2004, because you are expected to somehow believe all of this. Religion George W. Bush is a Christian, and Christians believe that lying is a sin, but it is okay for George Bush to mislead the public. A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying about the existence of Weapons of Mass Destruction to enlist support for an unprovoked, undeclared war, in which tens of thousands of soldiers and civilians die, is "defense". Christians believe in charity toward the poor, but...

    What is a Troll???? I was taught as a young child that a troll is a hideous creature that live under a bridge that wants to harm children. Apparently, there are a few subscribers to Free Republic that consider themselves the Troll Patrol. Some authors of Posts to the Free Republic website are accused of being "Trolls". These people, whom call themselves the Troll Patrol, are trying to intimidate Americans who are wanting to express their thoughts and concerns to keep their thoughts to themsleves. This is an attempt to enforce censorship or pressure someone not to express themselves. I...

Maybe you guys can support your buddies the Republicans by supplying them hankies for when they start to cry. Oh. Your posts sound more and more like "Fagot Republican Bush Supporters" with your silly comments. I guess Kerry's got you boys squirming now. Ha!Ha!Ha! Now the sorry Republicans are trashing Kerry for being friends with Jane Fonda. Kerry could care less what you clowns think of him.

    Dear Saddam, Remember when we first met on that magic night in Baghdad in 1983? You were gassing those wacky Iranians with chemical weapons and having a grand old time, but Ronnie and I just said hey, 'dictators will be dictators' - know what I mean?!! Hahaha. It's a good thing we sold you all those weapons and military equipment that you used in crushing your own people. Lord knows what might have happened if we hadn't stepped in to help you out. What a time it was too! We sold you all kinds of fun things - anthrax, VX...

    KERRY APOLOGIZES FOR "DIAPERS" REMARK (01/18/04) U.S. Sen. John Kerry called U.S. Sen. John Edwards late Sunday night to apologize for suggesting Edwards might have been in diapers when he returned from Vietnam, aides to Edwards said. While campaigning in Iowa Sunday, Kerry was asked how he differed from Edwards. Kerry touted his foreign policy experience and said that when he returned home after serving in Vietnam in 1969, "I don't even know if John Edwards was out of diapers." Edwards responded Sunday evening before a stop in Mason City that drew an overflow crowd. "I honor his service in...

    Despite recent reports of an improved economy, hunger and homelessness are on the rise, according to a study of 25 major cities by the U. S. Conference of Mayors. “This survey underscores the impact the economy has had on everyday Americans,” says conference president, Mayor James E. Garner of Hempstead, N.Y. “The face of homelessness has changed and now reflects who we least suspect.” For example, 61 percent of people requesting emergency food assistance in the cities surveyed held jobs. The annual “Hunger and Homelessness Survey,” released in late December, reports that requests for emergency food assistance increased by an...

I like the way DU is organized so that I can find interesting strings without searching for a particular topic. I also like that they have a breaking News section...

    All the President's votes? 14 October 2003 A quiet revolution is taking place in US politics. By the time it's over, the integrity of elections will be in the unchallenged, unscrutinised control of a few large - and pro-Republican - corporations. Andrew Gumbel wonders if democracy in America can surviveSomething very odd happened in the mid-term elections in Georgia last November. On the eve of the vote, opinion polls showed Roy Barnes, the incumbent Democratic governor, leading by between nine and 11 points. In a somewhat closer, keenly watched Senate race, polls indicated that Max Cleland, the popular Democrat...

    Wisdom of the Father, Folly of the Son Paul Craig Roberts Saturday, Oct. 11, 2003 Americans will regret that Bush II did not read his father's memoirs, "A World Transformed." Written five years ago, George Bush Senior explained why he didn't go after Saddam Hussein at the end of the Gulf War: "Trying to eliminate Saddam ... would have incurred incalculable human and political costs. Apprehending him was probably impossible. ... We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq. ... [T]here was no viable 'exit strategy' we could see, violating another of our principles. Furthermore,...
