Many would like to see the Kerry “less than honorable” discharge story break tonight. Apparently there is some email circulating that says it will be so. If it does break, it better have some meat behind it. For now, I’m wondering if it might “break” but only in the...

This would be the same PA where Republicans had to fight just to get a ten day extension for absentee ballots. Rendell went to court to fight Nader’s being on the ballot. That delay caused the late mailing of absentee ballots, which would particularly impact military voters serving overseas. Also of...

Transcript of Greenberg, Devine, Donilon, Lockhart Call

Simply contrasting these two responses to the recent Bin Laden tape tells you all you need to know about the two men and which one is fit to lead this nation. Kerry is a disgusting political opportunist with terrible instincts and no regard for what...

“Okay, folks.
