  • DUmmie FUnnies 01-17-05 ("Do you feel any animosity toward the Bush voters?")

    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....
  • How CBS' Big Story Fell Apart

    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...
  • (Chuck) Schumer: Democrats shouldn't protest Bush win

    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...

    International ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism), a front group for the communist Workers World Party, has released a video that agitates for 'civil war' at President Bush's inaugural parade on January 20 in Washington, D.C.According to reports, the group has received demonstration permits from the U.S. Park Service for at least two positions along the parade route on Pennsylvania Avenue: the Navy Memorial and Freedom Plaza.The release of the video follows on the announcement that Ramsey Clark, a founder of ANSWER and its parent group, the International Action Center (IAC), will be one of Saddam Hussein's...

Why must we endure such a pernicious monster? Deliver us from this monster. Take this cancer from us.

    This is unbelievable .. tune in for a few laughs now or when it's repeated. The Zogby Brothers are taking their Doom and Gloom act out in public ... Their hypothesis: America is turning into a bunch of fundamentalists .. because the Evangelicals made the difference in this election and it's *VERY* frightening. What blather and swill. Just because we love America, value her and our traditions, and are protective and defensive about ANY enemies who dare trample on her or hurt us .. we're so angry and "skeeeery."

    While all the television news outlets are presenting their post-mortems on 2004, there are some issues in waiting that are poised to launch us into the New Year face first. The Feinstein Doctrine Leaking a portion of the 2005 Democrat Playbook, California Senator Dianne Feinstein will propose to the 109th Congress a constitutional amendment to abolish the Electoral College and replace it with a supposed one-person, one-vote system for electing the president and vice president. “The Electoral College is an anachronism, and the time has come to bring our democracy into the 21st century. During the founding years of the...

    And why? Is patriotism something that belongs to the past, or should every citizen of every nation kiss their flag no matter what it represents? If one love one's countries symbols enough, one could easilier be fooled by people flashing these symbols at any opportunity. Has any person in any nation any time wondered if his truth served by media could be coloured, so that he was seeing most of the world through the eyes of others?
  • Kerry Preparing Grounds to Unconcede Election Challenge likely on Jan 6th (Christmas giggle!)

    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...

    The long weekend before Election Day in my home town of Cleveland was like the rushed, nonsensical climax of a dream. 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. Then, on Election Night, just when we all started to suffer our mass rude awakening, De La Soul showed up. These three seminal forerunners of today’s...

    Tuesday night, I went down to the graduate student lounge in my college for an election night “party;” mostly just people camped out in front of the television with snacks and drinks. My idea for this column was to take along my laptop, which I did, and chronicle what an expat election party was like. Advertisement I figured my fellow Trinity Hall students were good for some amusing and interesting quotes, which they were, and that any British students in attendance might provide a different perspective, which they did, and that even if the night didn’t go my way I...

    Recently found this encouraging note at DU:Open Letter to All Election Fraud Hunters: You are a small group with little coverage except negative. You are up against huge obstacles that are trying their best to thwart your work, and their methods are becoming more and more criminal with each day. You are fighting a group of people who think and act like organized crime: Perpetrate the massive crime, hide the evidence, and destroy those who persist in fighting--sometimes professionally and sometimes literally.

    Courtesy of Newsweek, mainstream media’s pet blogger Wonkette takes a cute little slap at the bloggers who broke the Dan Rather fraud story: Fast Chat: The Wonkette. What did you think of the bloggers’ role in the Dan Rather affair?I think they did a disservice to the debate because they made the debate about the documents and not about the president of the United States. There was another half to that story that had to do with verifiable events of what Bush may have been up to. While blogs like LGF were doing a “disservice to the debate” by exposing...

    Former "This Week" host and National Public Radio veteran Cokie Roberts blamed conspiracy filmmaker Michael Moore on Sunday for causing Sen. John Kerry to lose the presidential election. "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."

    HOLLYWOOD has-been Chevy Chase lashed out at President Bush at a liberal love-in Tuesday night, calling the commander-in-chief a "dumb f - - k." Chase was master of ceremonies at People for the American Way's Defender of Democracy awards gala at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. But the organization got more than it bargained for when Chase went off the rails in a potty-mouthed rant, the Washington Post reports. "This guy in office is an uneducated, real schmuck," Chase fumed, "and we still couldn't beat him with a bore like [John] Kerry." He then joked about Cabinet changes,...

    LA Times ^ | December 13, 2004
    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...
