    So what do you think the answer is to the question posed in this DUmmie THREAD titled, “Do you feel any animosity toward the Bush voters?” Do you think the DUmmies have warm, fuzzy feelings towards the Bush voters? Not exactly. Try out of control HATE and RAGE! However, there is one notable exception to this attitude among the Democrats. It has come to my attention that Senator Barack Obama is not only a lurker but also a big fan of the DUmmie FUnnies. From what I hear he gets a lot of laughs out of reading the DUFUs....

    Dan Rather was on the run, chasing big stories from New York to Florida to Texas and back to CBS headquarters in Manhattan. In less than a week: The Republican National Convention. A deadly hurricane. An interview for a blockbuster CBS investigation. Former President Clinton's open-heart surgery. [snip] Rather, 73, recalled somewhat vaguely that he had heard from his star producer that Burkett was a "straight-talking West Texan" with a reputation as a "truth teller." Had he turned to Google, though, the CBS anchorman would have found stories painting Burkett as something quite different: a highly controversial and disgruntled retired...

    WASHINGTON -- Sen. Charles Schumer, fresh in a new leadership role among Democrats, found himself at odds with some of them Thursday, including Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, over a ceremonial counting of President Bush's re-election victory. Schumer, D-N.Y., was tapped late last year to head the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and began the day touting the DSCC's lack of debt heading into the 2006 elections. The achievement was largely overshadowed by an objection to Ohio's electoral vote tallies by Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Ohio, joined by Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. Some Democrats have complained that voting problems in Ohio, where...

    WASHINGTON - The National Park Service has agreed to give thousands of anti-war demonstrators a prime spot along President Bush (news - web sites)'s inaugural parade route that will allow them to protest during the procession. The anti-war group A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition is planning to erect its own bleachers in the space, an open plaza on Pennsylvania Ave., just a few blocks from the Capitol building, said Brian Becker, national coordinator for the group. The bleachers could seat up to 1,000 people and the park service estimates up to 10,000 could fill the space standing shoulder to shoulder. "I don't think...

    If you haven't been following John Kerry closely, get ready to hear of surprising developments. The vote-defrauded, potential president-in-waiting has just indicated through his lawyer that the validity of George Bush's reelection is no longer a given. On 23 December, 2004 Kerry's lawyer confirmed to MSNBC's 'Countdown' that John Kerry will be seeking (likely on Monday 27 Dec.) to expedite court proceedings in an ongoing recount suit by the Green and Libertarian parties. That might sound like just another "count every vote" exercise by the Kerry campaign, were it not for two important details. Kerry's court filing will conjoin him...

Diehard leftists, down-and-out bohemians, and famous performers flooded in from across the nation, as people from Bruce Springsteen to an extra from One Life To Live (I gave him a lift after he’d finished a long day of canvassing) put themselves on the line to keep their idea of the American Dream alive.

"I think Michael Moore actually had a very major impact - a negative impact - on the Democratic Party," Roberts told NBC's "Chris Matthews Show." "I think he exemplified all of the things that people hate about Democrats. And the fact that he was - it was a hate-America-first campaign and that hurts the Democrats every time." Adding insult to injury, Roberts also contended that Moore's "physical appearance did not help."

    And you thought you were done with the 2004 election. Today the electoral college formally meets to reelect George W. Bush as president. Barring any last-minute surprises, the vote should be 286 for Bush, 252 for John Kerry. This ratification will elicit yawns instead of the outrage it did in 2000, when the electoral college went for the loser of the popular vote. But don't think 2000 was such an anomaly. The country barely dodged a bullet this time around. Had 59,388 Ohioans switched from Bush to Kerry, 2004 would have repeated the acidic result of the electoral college winner...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Democrat John Kerry is asking county elections officials to allow his witnesses to visually inspect the 92,000 ballots cast in Ohio in which no vote for president was recorded, a Kerry lawyer said Sunday night. The request is one of 11 items that Kerry is asking for as part of the recount that Ohio's 88 county boards of election will begin this week, according to a letter sent to the boards over the weekend. "We're trying to increase the transparency of the election process," said Donald McTigue, the lawyer handling the recount for the Kerry campaign. Two...

The question just hangs there, unanswered: Why did John Kerry capitulate so quickly, after so many people -- especially poor people -- had braved long lines, cold rainy weather and Republican intimidation to record their opposition...

Reacting to charges that his polarizing activism galvanized Republicans, Moore -- director of the provacative, anti-Bush film "Fahrenheit 9/11" -- contended Kerry lost the race simply because he was "not the best candidate."

    After the 2000 presidential campaign, strategists for President Bush came to a startling realization: Democrats watch more television than Republicans. So by buying millions of dollars' worth of television advertising time, Republicans were spending their money on audiences that tended to vote Democratic. What to do? With the luxury of four years until the next election, the Bush team examined voters' television-viewing habits and cross-referenced them with surveys of voters' political and lifestyle preferences. This led to an unusual step for a presidential campaign: it cut the proportion of money that it put into broadcast television and diverted more to...

    President Bush's unofficial margin of victory in Ohio is safe, after the remaining 10 counties in this battleground state finished ballot certification Wednesday and results showed there were fewer provisional ballots validated than the margin. Ohio's 88 counties reported validating 121,598 provisional ballots from 156,977 checked, according to an Associated Press tabulation. Bush's margin of victory on Nov. 2 was 136,483 votes. He received 2,796,147 votes to Kerry's 2,659,664. Kerry conceded after figuring that he would not get enough of the provisional ballot vote to overtake Bush's total. The state previously reported there were 155,337 provisional ballots statewide. Provisionals are...

"The election has ended, and now is the time for the country to come together to address the challenges our nation faces," the...

    In this edition of the DUmmie FUnnies the DUmmies can’t figure out why people aren’t rioting in the streets over vote fraud. Uhh….Maybe it might have to do with total lack of evidence of vote fraud. However, that minor technicality doesn’t stop the DUmmies from hoping for the coming Revolution as you can see in this THREAD titled, “When and how does the Revolution start?” As usual, the DUmmie yearnings for a Revolution are in Bolshevik Red while the comments of humble counter-revolutionary correspondent are in the [brackets]: When and how does the Revolution start? I'm going for a bike...

    Some critics have alleged that Florida's majority vote for President Bush was flawed. The Herald counted the votes in three North Florida counties and found little discrepancy. BY MEG LAUGHLIN AND DAVID KIDWELL mlaughlin@herald.com LAKE BUTLER - Since George W. Bush captured Florida and the White House again, critics have fixed their sights on northern pockets of the Sunshine State and asked: How did the Republicans win so heavily in counties stocked with Democrats? Some wondered whether Florida's tally was corrupt, with one Internet site writing: ``George W. Bush's vote tallies, especially in the key state of Florida, are so...

The spinning and stonewalling began immediately with a former executive Vice President of CBS news, Jonathan...

    What the Republicans did, cleverly, was to establish effective "memes" in the minds of the public and the pundits... Bush became the "winner" of a dead heat, in the midst of an incomplete recount, when a premature victory was declared on her own unnecessary deadline by his Florida campaign co-chairwoman, who also held the crucial post of secretary of state... [I]t was clearly a shameless ploy to slam the door before the election escaped. A meme was born. The other effective GOP meme was the mantra, "we counted, and counted again, and then a third time." These words were chanted...

Somehow this crowd doesn't seem quite as pathetic as the SorryEverybody folks, though it may be that we judge foreigners by a lower standard. Actually, there's at least one dissenting photo, showing the top half of some guy's head with the following message beneath: What actually makes Kerry so much better than Bush? We know about Bush now, and we know, what to expect. The majority of the American people has made their decision and...

    THE last presidential election in the United States is as American as apple pie. Even till the last second before the event started, nobody in the US or elsewhere knew for sure whether George Bush would retain his job or whether he would be defeated by John Kerry. Characteristic of American presidential elections in recent history, the last one was tough, rough and sometimes acrimonious, although some degree of razzmatazz was also noticeable.Key issues in the run-up to the election were security, the war against terror, the American misadventure in Iraq and the worrisome state of US economy. Generally speaking,...

    You are probably wondering by now why so many editions of the DUmmie FUnnies are devoted to the fantasy that fraud will be discovered with the election results overturned and the inauguration of John Kerry this January. The answer is simple. The VAST MAJORITY of the DUmmie threads, including this very THREAD are devoted to that very fantasy. Yes, I did have a DUmmie FUnnies edition yesterday about DUmmie love for Fidel Castro but, believe me, it was extremely difficult to find a thread NOT devoted to the DUmmie election fraud obsession. Therefore, instead of trying to change the topic...

    Houston Press ^ | Nov 11, 2004 | BY MICHAEL SERAZIO
    Between the end of the Republican National Convention and Election Day, the Houston Chronicle spent roughly 50,000 words on President George W. Bush and his campaign for re-election. Perhaps most impressive, one of its own columnists had major news to break on the race. He just didn't, umm, break it to the Chronicle. Russ Baker, a New York-based freelance journalist and contributing editor at Columbia Journalism Review, had been circling the reporting waters around President Bush for several months, dialing up hundreds of possible sources for material on the commander in chief. "I just didn't think we really knew enough...

    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...
