    IREY: JUST WHY DID JACK MURTHA VOTE AGAINST THE PATRIOT ACT, ANYWAY? Friday, August 11, 2006 (MONONGAHELA, August 11) -- Washington County Commissioner and Pennsylvania 12th district Republican Congressional nominee Diana Irey -- responding to the arrest in the UK of 24 alleged terrorists, and the arrest in Pakistan of another seven, including at least one who is reported to be a member of al Qaeda -- today released the following statement: "As I said yesterday, the arrests in the United Kingdom -- and last week's and yesterday's arrests in Pakistan -- represent a significant victory in the ongoing war...

    Sen. John Kerry thinks he's the front-runner for the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries. While many Democrats expect Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to emerge as top dog, Kerry's been telling friends the nomination is his.

    First he helped torpedo John F. Kerry's presidential campaign by pronouncing the Massachusetts Democrat "Unfit for Command" in a book, subtitled "Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry," that he co-wrote last year. Now insurance broker Jerome Corsi says he is taking aim at a different target: Kerry's Senate seat.

    BOSTON— U.S. Sen. John Kerry, in some of his most pointed public comments yet about November's presidential election, invoked Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy on Monday as he criticized President Bush and decried reports of voter disenfranchisement on election day. Kerry, Bush's Democratic challenger, spoke at Boston's annual Martin Luther King Day Breakfast. He reiterated that he decided not to challenge the election results, but went on to say that "thousands of people were suppressed in the effort to vote." "Voting machines were distributed in uneven ways. In Democratic districts, it took people four, five, eleven hours to vote, while...

    US Senator John Kerry said Saturday after talks with Syrian President Bashar Assad he is hopeful that strained US-Syrian relations can be improved. Assad in return assured Kerry he is interested in dialogue with Washington. The former Democratic presidential candidate, who arrived in Damascus Friday, met for two hours with Assad before meeting separately with Foreign Minister Farouk a-Sharaa. The talks centered on the situation in Iraq and how to prevent militants from entering Iraq through Syria. "I think we found a great deal of areas of mutual interest, some common concerns and some possibilities for initiatives that could be...

    On Thursday afternoon, when members of Congress will meet to certify the results of the 2004 presidential election, Sen. John F. Kerry will not be among those taking part in a formal protest of Ohio electors. "Despite widespread reports of irregularities, questionable practices by some election officials and instances of lawful voters being denied the right to vote, our legal teams on the ground have found no evidence that would change the outcome of the election," Kerry said in a Jan. 5 email message to supporters.

    Voting irregularities were few in Minnesota this year -- until it really counted. Defeated Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry likely is going to get one less electoral vote nationally than he should have -- 251 instead of 252 -- because of an apparent mistake Monday by one of Minnesota's 10 DFL electors. One of the 10 handwritten ballots cast for president carried the name of vice presidential candidate John Edwards (actually spelled "Ewards" on the ballot) rather than Kerry. "I was shocked ... this will go in the history books," said Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer, who presided over a...

    A few weeks ago in this space I commented on the unlikelihood of Virginia turning into a “swing state” in the 2004 election. Back in August, as the Democrats dreamed of a landslide, they even went so far as to send vice presidential candidate John Edwards to Roanoke. Even persistent polling data showing President George W. Bush with a comfortable lead in the state failed to kill the dream of a “blue” Virginia.In the end, of course, Virginia stayed in the “red” Republican column. Although the election was closer here than anywhere else in the South except Florida, Bush did...

    ...The staggering defeat of the Democratic Party and its ever-accelerating death spiral weren't obvious from the election results. Two factors masked the extent of the party's trouble. Without the innovation of Internet-driven small-donor fund-raising and a corresponding surge in support from the youngest voters, John Kerry would have suffered a dramatically larger defeat.... Mr. Kerry was a weaker candidate than Mr. Gore. He lost so much ground among women, Hispanics, and other key groups, that the millions in Internet money, the most Herculean get-out-the-vote effort in party history, and the largest turnout of young voters in over a decade, couldn't...

    WASHINGTON — Is this another John Kerry flip-flop? Less than three weeks after vowing in defeat to sweep aside partisan bickering, Kerry is slamming the White House for "a right-wing assault on values and ideals that we hold most deeply." In a new four-minute Internet ad on his campaign Web site, Kerry paints a doomsday future based on Bush's recent nods to fill vacated Cabinet posts. "The Cabinet is being remade to rubber-stamp policies that will undermine Social Security, balloon the deficit, avoid real reform in health care and education, weaken homeland security and walk away from critical allies...

    The election is over but the bickering never stopped. Some voters are suffering from "post election stress disorder." Pundits and partisans are stepping up to next face-off: judicial appointments. Yet the country has united on one issue: Vietnam. Ernest Lefever described the American attitude toward Vietnam: "The two diametrically opposed interpretations of Vietnam continue to vie for the American psyche. Until the issue is resolved, we will suffer from a kind of historical schizophrenia." The parade of Vietnam Veterans across the stage at the Democrats National Convention received a standing ovation, the first of its kind from the protesting class....

    Okay, Democrats, here's how you win back the presidency in '08 ... Between now and the 2008 primaries, you promote the candidacy of one Hillary Rodham Clinton. You remember Hillary. She's the wife of William Jefferson Clinton, the pot-smoking, skirt-chasing, two-timer 42nd president of all the United States of America, including Ohio and Florida. Mrs. Clinton, the temp senator from New York, drives the conservatives nuts. She is, as her name implies, a female, and thus, in their eyes, uppity ... if she has the audacity to run for public office, which she does. Conservative men and women alike think...

    Of all the targets of the vitriol and attempted ambushes during the presidential campaign, I most admired John O'Neill of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth for his calm determination to stand his ground on his charges against John Kerry's Vietnam service in the book "Unfit for Command" that he co-authored. O'Neill was called a "liar" to his face on a number of TV appearances, and, on an Oct. 14 "Nightline," ABC-TV's Ted Koppel actually sent a crew to Vietnam to film alleged eyewitnesses in order to disprove one of the accounts — how Kerry won his Silver Star —...

    Early on in his presidential campaign, John Kerry capitalized on his four months of action in Vietnam and proclaimed to the American public that he is a man of courage and valor. The ads were supposed to suggest that having been on the front lines, Kerry is uniquely qualified to offer leadership in the war on terror. A better gage, however, would be the opinions of those who served with Kerry and the track record of weakness and error he accumulated over the past 20 years as a legislator. With regard to the former, a new ad produced by Swift...

    The dead have been used, the admired exploited, and the gay outed. The 2004 election is certainly not the dirtiest campaign in American history - no sexual sleaze or corruption charges, so far - but this week has seen its share of the distasteful. Less than a day after the actor who personified Superman died, John Edwards was on the stump in Iowa: "If we do the work that we can do in this country, the work that we will do when John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going to walk, get up out of that wheelchair...

    But Droz, a key witness in the ongoing debate over Kerry's service record, is missing from it, killed in a rocket attack in Vietnam in April 1969 days after Kerry returned home. While Droz cannot defend Kerry, his widow, Judith Droz Keyes, said she feels she must. She said she is confident that her husband would defend both Kerry's record in Vietnam and his antiwar activism. "John Kerry was a good friend, and a loyal friend to my late husband," she said in a telephone interview from her office in San Francisco. "My husband isn't here to speak, and all...
