Vice President Cheney said he has never seen Senator Edwards in the senate. Oops.
Regrettably, the Vice President does a better job thinking than his boss does, which, in my opinion weakens the republican party ticket substantially. Additionally, I am disappointed that the republican party still believes that middle America is doing just fine…. He clearly demonstrated his command of facts and that Kerry and Edwards have a plan to reverse the economic downturn of the last 4 years.
(AP) – A 45-year-old woman collapsed and died days after learning her son had been killed in Iraq, and just hours after seeing his body. Results of an autopsy were not immediately released, but friends of Karen Unruh-Wahrer said she couldn’t stop crying over losing her 25-year-old son, Army Spc…. Her husband described it as a broken heart,” said Cheryl Hamilton, manager of respiratory care services at University Medical Center, where Unruh-Wahrer worked as a respiratory therapist.
The Voice in Bush’s Ear This site is a clearinghouse for discussion of whether President Bush uses an earpiece through which he’s fed lines and cues by offstage advisers…. When Bush spoke at D-Day ceremonies in France last June, for example, viewers watching on CNN, Fox and MSNBC, including mediachannel.org’s Danny Schechter, were startled to hear another voice speaking Bush’s words as if to prompt him…. And on the night of 9/11, when Bush appeared on television to address the nation, viewers of one television station in Quincy, Massachusetts heard another voice speaking, slowly and carefully, a few words at a time — words which were then recited by the president.
MoveOn.Org Urges Action Against FOX’s Ailes and Cameron News Hounds have been calling for the dismissal of FOX political reporter “Campaign Carl” Cameron ever since his “jokes” about Kerry got published on FOXNews.com…. Now MoveOn.org is calling for action against FOX CEO Roger Ailes as well as Cameron. Call Roger Ailes now and let him know that a real Fair and Balanced network would fire Carl Cameron for biased reporting.
John Lennon killer denied parole A parole board in New York State has refused to release John Lennon’s killer, Mark Chapman…. His previous applications for parole – in 2000, when he first became eligible after serving 20 years, and in 2002 – were also turned down. On Tuesday the parole board told Chapman: “Your course of conduct over a lengthy period of time shows a clear lack of respect for life and subjected the wife of the victim to monumental suffering by her witnessing the crime.”
Fox News, dismayed that Dan Rather stole the spotlight, decided to make up some more news of their own. The difference between this made up news and their regular made up news is that apparently Fox News employees have been desensitized to the point that they can no longer tell the difference between a leaked memo and a funny forward…. [via] Fake quotes from John Kerry published on the Fox News website include: “Didn’t my nails and cuticles look great?
Timber Profits and a Must-See Movie Published on October 04, 2004 So there I was, five rows from the stage, directly behind Rudolph Giuliani, into whose neck I could have stuck a fork – except I am not that kind of guy…. Bush was a really handsome 20-something in that airman’s photo we see over and over again – but what has he ever done that could possibly, conceivably, under even the most ludicrous of circumstances have qualified him to be the most powerful man in the world?… (Or as Bush himself reportedly put it to a long-time friend when he was first being encouraged to run for governor: “You know, I could run for governor but I’m basically a media creation.
I must admit, Carl Rove is utterly brilliant. He has accomplished the impossible, selling a record of failure with smoke and mirrors, and some people are falling for it.
Bush Campaign Sending Talking Points to Radio Hosts Hannity, Limbaugh, Ingraham, Levin, and Malzberg by spree99 Thu Sep 30th, 2004 at 06:00:36 GMT It is come to my attention that either someone in the Bush campaign or a close contributor has been emailing various right wing radio talk show hosts talking points…. The source has heard that this email has been passed to other talk radio hosts at WABC radio 770 am including Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Rush Limbaugh…. It stated they should link it to America’s war on terror and play up the fear that the next terrorist attack in America could be against a school.

“I used to have this stack of hard-copy journals on my desk waiting to be read,” said Catherine Poling, an assistant principal at Kemptown Elementary School, also in Frederick County, Md., who ran a blog last year when she taught third grade at a nearby school…. While such a question could have just as easily been posed during a classroom conversation, teachers who use blogs say that students put a lot more thought and effort into their blog writing, knowing that parents and others may read their work on the Web…. Debbi Contner, an assistant principal at one of the district’s six schools, Hamilton-Maineville Elementary, who used a blog when she taught fourth grade at the school last year, said that teachers become receptive to blogs once they see how easy it is to set one up.
An interesting little blog post: This years Republican National Convention is being protected by roughly 12,000 police officers. Many of them will be focused on a 20 block area around the convention. Us troop levels in Afghanistan number around 17,900 to help cover a War-lord dominated frontier about the size of Texas.
Did Fox News Photoshop a picture to make President Bush look taller?… UPDATE: Ari sez: “Fox News did not ‘doctor’ a photo to make Bush look taller; they took it untouched from the AP. Bush just happens to look taller in that picture because it was taken at a slightly different time, from a slightly different angle. (Of course, you can still argue that they deliberately chose the photo where Bush didn’t appear dwarfed by Kerry.).
However, I learned that I could reapportion the increase so that the greatest majority of it is used for iDisk (web stuff) storage, which is where I need it…. Under the green “Buy More” button you will see a “Storage Settings” button on which you click…. If you are unfamiliar with them, you may want to play around with them to maximize the full potential of your .Mac account.
