"I care about freedom and liberty. I care about my family. I care about my country. Because I care, I promise to work hard to re-elect, re-elect George W. Bush as president of the United States."
"I care about my freedom to talk dirty, stay away from church and vote Communist, racist, Democrat or Republican if I want to and my liberty to do any damn thing I want to that shouldn't be any of the business of the government. I care about my family, many of them out of work, three of them just little girls who will be paying the Bush debts and living with the disastrous results of the Bush foreign policy for decades. I care about my country, the one that stands for something more than the election of a moron who can't even talk without a wire up his fundament, that was once the beacon of the world and can be again. Because I care, I promise to work hard to defeat George W. Bush and his accursed tendency, not just in this election, but forever."
"Four More Days!" A Two-Minute Warning Pep Talk
It's the two-minute warning, as they say in North American football - (I wanna scream, "Four More Days! Four More Days!") - that moment when the game is about to end but there is still a chance to change its result…
This is the moment to remind us all why we are here and how we are going to win this game.
Kind readers, we are witnessing and participating in the most important presidential election of the past seventy years in the United States.
Not since the 1932 election of Franklin D. Roosevelt have the stakes been higher, not only for United States citizens, but for the entire world.
So gather 'round while I offer a little pep talk about how we're going to go out and win this championship even though the official scoreboard (that is, the Commercial Media, with its corporate sponsors and formulaic pollsters) says we are one point behind.
Four More Days! Four More Days!And there's lots of meat in between, mostly about Al's direct knowledge of Kerry and his political style.
Pay no attention to those Commercial Media-bought pollsters behind the curtain!
Get out there and win that game!
One more point, one more voter, wins the game.
You have more to say about the results than those Commercial Media infected pollsters do.
This is it.
Democracy will be reborn on Tuesday… Or it will die.
That is all.
BUSH EVENT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE: Event workers had been told to fire off confetti pods when Bush said, 'God Bless'... his normal closing line. But 5 minutes before the end of his speech, Bush offered a "God Bless" to Arlene Howard, mother of George Howard a Port Authority of New York/New Jersey Police Officer killed in the World Trade Center... BLAM!!!!! Everyone first ducked -- hard -- then looked up to see confetti falling. Bush looked momentarily stunned, then plain unhappy, then just went on with his speech as the confetti rained to the floor of the Verizon Wireless Arena... Developing...What in the world could develop?
Mackenzie always argued that intelligence work and secrecy went together not so much because the information was confidential but so as to hide the incompetence and bungling of the security services.Like, maybe, the 380 tons of disappearing RDX.

We were tricked by George W. BushOriginal Bush administration/campaign commercial here. Does that spokeslady have a British accent? Note the strong letdown at the end when it gets to "I'm George W. Bush and I approve this commercial."
They told us we were shooting a Greenpeace commercial!
Wolfpacks for Truth
In spite of his position, as the most powerful person on the earth, George W. Bush Jr., was seen to be on a defensive, stammering, searching for right words, and showing his disappointment over some of the responses from his opponent, John Kerry. In this "Truth or Dare" game, he had to repeatedly chose "Dare", instead of saying a truth about the challenges posed to him.
As many of us know, the "Truth or Dare" game is also a western pastime, where kids gather, generally overnight, and throw embarrassing questions at their associates. In response, either a truthful answer is to be given, or the contestant chooses to perform a ‘dare", which is mostly an equally embarrassing action. In the first debate, George Bush had to consistently avoid the "truth", and go for "dares", providing an opportunity of a hearty laughter to his opponents.
Another possible explanation for the president's weird behavior, as evidenced not only in his recent debates, but also in his poorly explained rug burns and illogical pretzel attacks, and even his mountain biking mishaps has occurred to me. Does W have Gulf War Syndrome brought on by a reaction to his supposed vaccination for anthrax? And is that why he has refused to have a physical until after the election?
This report gives the symptoms of GWS and also a strong indication that they are caused by anthrax vaccine:"Symptoms include muscle aches and joint pain, chronic fatigue, headaches, anxiety, depression, dizziness, sleep disorders, rashes, and loss of concentration. Cases of a similar illness have been seen in personnel who were not deployed to the Persian Gulf theater of operations in 1990 or 1991 and also in personnel who joined the armed forces after 1991, though the illness in these patients has not been called GWS."
Finally, from Newsweek 24 Oct 01:It's not clear whether Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney or other administration leaders have received (anthrax vaccine). White House aides won't say. "It's a matter of security," one of them told me.
Wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time.The idea could never have travelled so far if John Kerry had been forced to do all the publicizing himself.
That irresponsibly said, on to some other odds and ends from last night's debate.
When Bush said that Kerry's health plan was "buggy-and-horse", Brother Dave instantly said, "Cart before horse, Mr. President?"
In the previous debate, the Canadian drug peddlers were trying to poison us with their third-world gray-market goods. This time, Bush thinks they might peddle us some flu vaccine.
Bush said that if we had the same health plan senators and congressmen have, it would cost us $7000 for a family. Bush meant that to be shocking, and it was, being a little less than half what I'm paying for health insurance right now. Sign me up. I want that Blue Cross/Blue Shield plan Kerry was taking about.
The media-baiting "joke", halted half-way through with a high-pitched Beavisian heh-heh, now that was a moment for meme-making, perhaps not the meme the president had in mind.
Yes, I watched it all, while Pedro Martinez held the fort.
Any common sense working man or woman
can tell you..."when the boss hasn't been doing his job,
he needs to be fired and replaced."
It’s as simple as that.

Why did the chicken cross the road?
Well I'll tell you, pard
The chicken crossed the road to join the Texas Air National Guard
Mr. Bush, exactly where were you in 1972 when you were supposed to be defending Alabama against air attack?The resulting film clip would be unimaginably rich, don't you think?
What is it with you and physicals? I see you're skipping out this year, just like in 1972.
You sure do fall over a lot. Gerald Ford's got nothing on you, sir.
Don't you think eight trillion dollars of debt is kind of pushing it?
Bill Maher says that with sanctions and no-fly zones, we controlled more of Iraq when Saddam Hussein ran the country than we do now. Your reaction?
Can you name one heavily touted Bush initiative that has unequivocally succeeded? Document your answer.
WASHINGTON — The Bush administration plans to delay major assaults on rebel-held cities in Iraq until after U.S. elections in November, say administration officials, mindful that large-scale military offensives could affect the U.S. presidential race.Asking about that might get his pet goat.
Your eBay account could be suspended!The mystical powers granted me by the great god Emacs-Rmail-Ascii enable me to see that the mail came from an account that included "cheapdomainsuk" in the address and wanted me to dump all my financial information on a purported eBay address in Italy.

I've got you surrounded and you ain't got a chance,
Gonna send you back to Texas, make you work on your ranch,
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah.
Well, I could easily be wrong, but I have a feeling Cheney will crush Edwards tonight. The format is God's gift to Daddy. They'll both be seated at a table, immediately allowing Cheney to do his assured, paternal, man-of-the-world schtick that makes me roll on my back and ask to have my tummy scratched. (Yes, I do think that Cheney is way sexier than Edwards. Not that you asked or anything.)
Blowing up Zarqawi
How the coalition transformed a failed fringe fanatic into The World’s Most Dangerous Terrorist.
What a difference two years makes when it comes to being the 'most evil man in the world'.
Zarqawi, it would appear, remains the petty killer he always was. But by making a myth of the man, the coalition has ensured that his killings have an instantaneous, global impact - surely what every terrorist desires. Why would Zarqawi stop, when the coalition has given him top billing in postwar Iraq?In between, how it all happened, how a man with no connection to either Saddam Hussein or al-Qaida went to a Baghdad doctor as a nobody and came out the linchpin of American strategy.
No president, though all of American history, has ever ceded, and nor would I, the right to preempt in any way necessary to protect the United States of America.
But if and when you do it, Jim, you have to do it in a way that passes the test, that passes the global test where your countrymen, your people understand fully why you're doing what you're doing and you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons.
Here we have our own secretary of state who has had to apologize to the world for the presentation he made to the United Nations.
Let me -- I'm not exactly sure what you mean, "passes the global test," you take preemptive action if you pass a global test.
I mean the global smell test.
