    Turnpike Authority drops publicist Firm had worked for anti-Kerry group By Frank Phillips, Globe Staff  |  December 11, 2004 The Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, facing the wrath of state Democratic leaders, yesterday canceled the contract of a Washington, D.C., public relations firm that during the presidential campaign worked for Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the group that attacked John F. Kerry's Vietnam war record. ..... In a statement that reflects the deep bitterness about the swift boat group's tactics, a Kerry spokesman blasted the decision to hire Russell and his firm, calling it ''just the latest breathtakingly stupid decision by the...
  • Why the election was as close as it was

    I would like to make a point about the election that I think has been missed by all the pundits. Why was it as close as it was? The 9/11 attacks have been widely cited as helping Bush. They certainly did give him an opportunity to prove his leadership, but they also hurt him in another very important respect that nobody seems to realize. They sucker-punched the U.S. economy just as we were trying to come out of a recession. The economy is still a very important factor in Presidential elections whether we realize it or not. Had the 9/11...

    The election has been over for weeks, but experts and observers are still pondering the results. Dr. Arthur B. Robinson, the president of the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, comments that "Big media tried some very big lies late in the campaign in blatant attempts to defeat the President before these lies could be countered. For the most part, these efforts did not work. They were countered by the truth¯on the Internet¯in remarkably timely fashion."

    Rumor has it that the results of the investigation into CBS Memogate are going to be released tomorrow. And in a rather ... uh ... curious coincidence, Dr. David Hailey, the Utah State professor who is desperately, quixotically trying to prove the CBS memos are real, has released what he claims as the final version of his shoddy, laughable "analysis". And I'm sure you won't be shocked at all to discover that his conclusion is ... the documents were typed. On a magical typewriter that somehow produced an exact duplicate of a Microsoft Word document, down to the spacing, line...

    George W. Bush ran the most negative presidential campaign in history, and the media never covered the story, an aide to Sen. John Kerry's campaign said last Monday at the journalism department. Marco Trbovich, a United Steelworkers of America employee who advised Kerry on labor policy, told the 20 students gathered at Carter Hall that about 80 percent of Bush's campaign money was spent on negative advertising. "If you can think of a few positive commercials that you saw, you saw all of them that were there," he said. Bush's campaign played upon fear, using patriotic and religious fervor to...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - Most of the presidential election provisional ballots rejected so far in Ohio came from people who were not even registered to vote, election officials said after spending nearly two weeks poring over thousands of disputed votes. The vast majority of provisional ballots have been legitimate, however. Of the 11 counties that have completed checking ballots, 81 percent of the ballots are valid, according to a survey Monday by The Associated Press. Unofficial vote totals show President Bush beating Democrat John Kerry by 136,000 votes in Ohio, and Kerry has conceded there are not enough outstanding votes to...

    By Hunter S. Thompson Page 2 "The Summer is over the harvest is in, and we are not saved." -- Jeremiah 8:20 Well, the election is over now, and I was pitifully wrong on my public prediction about the outcome. George W. Bush won handily; and my friend, John Kerry, lost by three percentage points -- which was every bit as big in a vicious presidential election as it was on the football field last night when the low-riding Indianapolis Colts kicked a last-second field goal to beat Minnesota 31-28. That field goal was just as good for the Colts...

    Did Bush fix the elections? - 11/09/2004 10:54 Why did Kerry throw in the towel so soon? The appearance of Osama bin Laden bang on cue was suspicious, to say the least, as is now the increasing evidence pointing toward election fraud in the United States of America on November 2nd. Exit polls in sensitive districts just don't add up to the official figures. Did Bush fix it? In Ohio, for instance, the sensitive state which gave Bush the 20 electoral college votes he needed, CNN exit polls among women awarded Kerry the vote by 53 to 47% and among...

    The well-dressed disrupter at the recent premiere of "Stolen Honor," a documentary film attacking John Kerry's role as a Vietnam War protester, has been identified as a Kerry campaign and Democratic National Committee staffer who had served time for manslaughter in a fatal shooting. Wayne F. Smith interrupted the question-and-answer session following the Sept. 9 showing in Washington, delivering a long speech assailing the film and defending Sen. Kerry. He did not identify himself, but he recently had joined the Kerry campaign's veterans outreach operation. The campaign told this column Thursday night that Smith worked for the DNC. Although Smith...

    November 4, 2004 - All the “sure signs” for a Kerry victory were there. The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl. The Boston Red Sox exorcised the “Curse of the Bambino.” The Washington Redskins – longtime predictors of presidential races – lost last Sunday, which has always meant a loss for the incumbent. And to add to that trifecta, the stock market was skittish, surely a sign of an incumbent’s defeat at the polls. But … The bin Laden tape backfired, telling the American electorate that the arch-terrorist was rooting for a Kerry victory. The dozens of anti-Bush books...

    November 03, 2004 Ed Bradley Calls Election for Bush on CBS, Rather Objects In a rather testy on-air exchange, circa 12:30am PST, between Dan Rather, CBS anchor, and Ed Bradley, long-time corresponent for CBS's 60 Minutes and an election night commentator, Bradley rather roundly criticized both Kerry and his own network for not accepting the obvious mathematics and calling the election for Bush. Bradley pointed out that Bush leads Kerry by 145,000 votes in Ohio, and even if 250,000 provisional ballots remain (which he considered a high estimate), and that even if all the provisional ballots are valid, Kerry would...

    Calling the 2004 presidential election the beginning of a fresh start for America, Teresa Heinz Kerry asked supporters at a Monday Rally at Scranton High School to "vote often" today. "Do you know how to vote often?" the wife of Democratic candidate Sen. John Kerry asked a crowd of just over 1,000 in the school's auditorium. "You vote once, and then you take one, two, three, four, five people to vote with you. That's voting often, so vote often." Citing the loss of thousands of jobs, rising health care costs, a soaring federal budget deficit and the high number of...

    Horlick voter drive will proceed By Phyllis Sides RACINE - Horlick High School students will still help get out the vote next week, despite the decision to pull the plug on a similar program in Milwaukee. Jose Martinez, Racine Unified's assistant superintendent for secondary education, said students' efforts are part of a service learning project that is nonpartisan. The participating students are part of social studies classes that have been studying presidential elections and the democratic process. Students will spend the entire school day Tuesday going door-to-door, in all of the city's 35 wards, providing information on how people can...

    LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Some Michigan voters have received phone calls falsely claiming that Sen. John Kerry would make gay marriage legal. In New Jersey, some voters have heard a man claiming to be former Army Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf backing the Democrat. Elderly voters in Pennsylvania have been called and told they are ineligible to vote. Republicans and Democrats were furious Monday about the blatantly false, 11th-hour political calls to voters and demanded an end to the messages. Schwarzkopf has endorsed President Bush, but in a recording of a phone call played for The Associated Press, a man identifying himself...

    If you remember the story, Kerry did not want to be seen carrying the dead goose he shot in the photo op. So while exiting the field he had a birdboy run on up ahead out of the camera shot carrying the goose. When asked, he said each hunter shot one, but in all pictures, he is the only one not shown carrying a dead goose. Duckhunters on the website the Duckhunter's Refuge pointed out this was a violation of federal law, it involved not "maintaining field possession" of the game. When this question arose, I emailed the head waterfowl...
