UPDATE: Look for a significant breaking event, situation or information to hurt Kerry within the next week. And don’t think for a minute that some third party veterans weren’t pissed at Kerry having the nerve to invoke his behavior after returning from Vietnam as a positive. He rubbed salt in...

In a startling development The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has joined the Crayola Corporation in denouncing recent Republican slurs being hurled at Sen.

I don’t have time to do an entire post on this. But if this isn’t a would be VP saying he thinks he has more to offer than his boss, nothing is. There must be real trouble in the Kerry / Edwards huggy-kissy tour the country together club. No wonder they’re...

Is John Kerry A Leader?

September 29, 2004
By

One of the questions I have been asking myself is “Can Kerry lead?” Yes, I know he was a Swiftie. But that record is mixed and of extremely short duration. The POTUS is considered the “leader” of the free world and our next President must be a leader. So,...

Bill at the fourth rail elaborates on Israel’s assassination of a Hamas leader in Damascus by making some crucial points that now apply to every nation seriously involved in fighting the GWOT.

I won’t elaborate on all six points of his discussion here but I think the “message” is critical. In short,...

Draft Rumor Confirmed: Bush Playing Defense

September 28, 2004

Citing increased hostilities across the campaign front and significant losses within key battleground states, the DNC and the Kerry campaign have backed away from their commitment to an all volunteer army in their on going struggle against President Bush.

“We’re getting hit hard on all fronts,” said one senior Democrat, “and we...

Boston Globe Online: Print it!

This idiot must be mis-remembering the Bay of Pigs as a weekend at the Compound with his troubled nephew and some broads. The tremendous irony here is that JFK was probably closer to Bush politically than to Kerry, or to him.

The First Ms. Kerry

Everyone loves a mystery, so is it any wonder about speculation regarding John Kerry’s first wife, Julia Thorne? Evidently she has decided to not become a part of the political frey this campaign season … and who can blame her?

She’s anathema to her ex, to his staff, to his new...

NYT – Dem Commercial Inflammatory and Misleading

September 26, 2004
By

Blaster notes a Dick Morris effort to debunk some of Moore’s Fahrenheit 911 mythology regarding Bush’s financial dealings.

Moore gets some mileage about Saudi investment in Harken Energy, the company that a lot of poeple got exercised about regarding a stock sale that Bush made while a director, claiming there was some crime there. There wasn’t

This is also relevant to a new Dem attack add playing in battleground states.

This 30-second commercial attacking President Bush, paid for by the Media Fund, is titled “All in the Family” and began appearing Thursday in St. Louis and on national cable channels, at a cost of nearly $500,000. It will rotate with another spot called “Missing Pages,” which says a Congressional report has a classified chapter linking the Saudi government to terrorists. This is the first set in a series of spots on American-Saudi ties that the Media Fund said would run through Election Day.

This must be Bush’s lucky day as even the NYT’s is debunking this attack and calling it inflammatory and misleading. I guess the ad is right on par with 60 Minutes.

But the spot taints the Bushes with guilt by association. Saudis, not necessarily members of the royal family, have invested in businesses whose boards included the first President Bush. This is not quite investing in “Bush business ventures.” It is true that Saudis invested in and helped bail out Harken Energy, which had bought a little West Texas oil company owned by George W. Bush – but so did George Soros, the wealthy Democratic industrialist who has pledged millions of dollars to defeat Mr. Bush this year. William Jeffress Jr., a partner in James Baker’s law firm, Baker Botts, does represent Saudi officials in suits filed by survivors and family members of victims of the Sept. 11 attacks. Juxtaposing Mr. Baker with the Saudi flag is inflammatory and misleading.

Kerry’s History of Dirty Tricks

My Way – Page Six

Evidently dirty tricks and even criminal behavior is nothing new for a Kerry campaign. The candidate’s brother Cameron was arrested back in 1972 for breaking into a rival’s headquarters. In an additional bit of irony the NY Times did a story yesterday comparing this election to his...

With the PJ’d Pro’s and Semi-Pro’s covering RatherGate, I figured I’d take a look at something different. On Monday, the left’s pin-up blimp, Michael Moore, unleashed his fleshy fingers and meated out a missive to the liberal failthful across the internet.
