The New York Times: Until Successor Is Confirmed, Powell Pledges to Work Hard:

"'It has always been my intention that I would serve one term,' Mr. Powell told reporters in a televised briefing from the State Department early this afternoon.

'In recent weeks and months, President Bush and I have talked about foreign policy and we've talked about what to do at the end of the first term,' Mr. Powell said. 'After we had had a chance to have good and fulsome discussions on it, we came to mutual agreement that it would be appropriate for me to leave at this time.'"

I'd say this was all a rather "interesting" way to phrase is leaving. Hmmm.

Thank You Notes to Margaret Marshall

Margaret Marshall, Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, did more than anyone in America to assure a Bush victory. Despite the wishes of voters in the Commonwealth, Justice Marshall changed thousands of years of human history by asserting that the concept of "marriage" included men who lived with men, and women who lived with women. This issue became a rallying cry across the nation for the many millions of ordinary folks that hold traditional values and reject the idea that a handful of elites can change our culture solely on the concept of political correctness.

Thank you Justice Marshall for reminding us how dangerous you elites are and for reminding us right before an election. Please send your kind and respectful thank your notes to:

Chief Justice Margaret H. Marshall

Michael Ledeen posts a very defensive refutation of the current Pentagon/Israel spy story. He forgets to mention that he is a close friend of the suspected spy. Where are the NRO editors?

The Boston Globe's Ridiculous Headline

Today's Boston Globe features an enormous frontpage headline that reads: "Kerry Vows Freedom Anew".

Freedom for who?
Freedom from what?
Freedom where?
What Freedom was there"before" that we have to "get back"?
What is the Globe TALKING ABOUT?

In the history of incomprehensible headlines, surely, this one stands out. Is it possible that Kerry said so little of substance in his speech that the Globe just didn't know what to write?

It's possible.

Will Laci's Mom Speak at Convention?
The Democrats seem to be scoring some political points on the use of human embryos in scientific experiments, but perhaps the Bush folks could counter with an emotional appeal of their own in the person of Sharon Rocha - Laci Peterson's mom.

Ms. Rocha was a strong supporter of "Laci's Law", a law that recognizes an unborn child as a separate crime victim when a pregnant mom is attacked. She wrote an emotional appeal to Senator Kerry and he refused to take her advice.

Perhaps the speach of Ron Reagan will soon be overshadowed by the determined voice of a would-be grandma fighting for the memory of her grandson Conner.

Something Fishy when Patriot Act is Mentioned

Call me a cynic, but I'm always suspicious when an Internet geek gets caught up in some strange doings and immediately blames the Patriot Act for his troubles.  The Patriot Act is simply a code word for the Left to check their brains at the door and follow blindly the latest alleged outrage.

"And perhaps most disturbing of all, it was later revealed that the FBI invoked a provision of the USA Patriot Act to obtain financial records from his ISP. "

Yeah....right.....check out Boing Boing for the story of an Internet sad-sack.

Don't Forget Carter's Malaise Speech
Here is a snippet from the worst speech ever made by an American President. Imagine coming home from a 10 hour day at work and listening to this garbage?

The threat is nearly invisible in ordinary ways. It is a crisis of confidence. It is a crisis that strikes at the very heart and soul and spirit of our national will. We can see this crisis in the growing doubt about the meaning of our own lives and in the loss of a unity of purpose for our Nation.

The erosion of our confidence in the future is threatening to destroy the social and the political fabric of America.

The confidence that we have always had as a people is not simply some romantic dream or a proverb in a dusty book that we read just on the Fourth of July. It is the idea which founded our Nation and has guided our development as a people. Confidence in the future has supported everything else -- public institutions and private enterprise, our own families, and the very Constitution of the United States. Confidence has defined our course and has served as a link between generations. We've always believed in something called progress. We've always had a faith that the days of our children would be better than our own.

Our people are losing that faith, not only in government itself but in the ability as citizens to serve as the ultimate rulers and shapers of our democracy.

Pro-Choicers Are Not Nice

No explanation necessary - from Orlando Weekly.

As we march down Pennsylvania Avenue, the Christian anti-abortion front get more obnoxious, and thus better protected by barricades and cops. The marchers angrily chant "Pro-life, that's a lie! You don't care if women die!" I glance over at Jennifer, and she looks madder than a wet hen. She's abandoned the group chant and is screaming, "Go to hell and burn your Bibles!" So much for Zen and meditation.

As we pass a group of clergymen holding signs that say, "What about the BABY'S life?" I yell, "What about my life?" One of the men tries to touch me and cries out, "Jesus loves you anyway! Even though you support killing babies, Jesus loves you!" That does it. I put my middle finger up an inch away from his face and scream, "Fuck you!"

Immediately afterwards, a row of about a dozen Catholic priests are lined up, silently passing judgment on all of us sinners. The marchers around me go nuts. Everyone starts yelling about pedophiles and the Pope being an irrelevant old fart. A few of the priests smirk, which makes me ornery as hell. I point at each of them and yell, "Pedophiles! Child molesters! Rapists of young boys! Burn in hell, you motherfuckers!" That's right, I told a bunch of priests to burn in hell. I've dreamt of this day ever since I was a disillusioned 15-year-old Catholic schoolgirl. My catharsis is off the charts.

Terrorists Walk Proud in London

Is Britain a pathetic nation or what? Terrorists flaunt their hatred of Britain, wish for death to thousands and no likely reaction. In America, perhaps these fellows and their friends might get a little visit from some drunk teamsters who might - accidently, of course - take their eyes out.

"As far as I'm concerned, when they bomb London, the bigger the better," says Abdul Haq, the social worker. "I know it's going to happen because Sheikh bin Laden said so. Like Bali, like Turkey, like Madrid - I pray for it, I look forward to the day."

"Pass the brown sauce, brother," says Abu Malaahim, the IT specialist, devouring his chicken and chips.

"I agree with you, brother," says Abu Yusuf, the earnest-looking financial adviser sitting opposite. "I would like to see the Mujahideen coming into London and killing thousands, whether with nuclear weapons or germ warfare. And if they need a safehouse, they can stay in mine - and if they need some fertiliser [for a bomb], I'll tell them where to get it."

Brigham's and Hacks

Some interesting doings at Hub Blog:

Jay takes note of a Herald article by Greg Gatlin that reports the sale of Brigham's to a local investment firm. I agree with Jay that there is a real opportunity here for the investors if they handle the marketing of this asset correctly.

If Brigham's can speak to the inner-child of those who remember the way Brigham's used to be, then they have a chance. I'm talking about no nonsense hot fudge sundaes as the core to its entire ice cream line - the kind served in a pewter sundae dish with the world's best hot fudge dripping down the sides (and, of course, whipped cream and a cherry). If you can get parents seeing Brigham's that way, you'll get them to drag the next generation in too. Of course, you can have all the foolish ice cream stuff available for the kids, but the primary "feel" of the chain should be the simple hot fudge sundae.

When I go to get ice cream I don't want to have to think if "Rain Forest Berry-Nut" is PC this week or not PC. I want to think of the feelings I had when my mom brought me there when I was nine years old - good, safe, happy feelings that I want to share with my own children as they grow.

As for Jay's other entry about Mitt and the Hacks, I have no problem at all with a newly merged and expanded state agency having a COO and a CFO along with an external affairs person and good legal counsel. If an agency is important enough to create and important enough to fund with taxpayer money, then it is important enough to be staffed with professional managers in positions that can really manage.

Without these professional managers, the REAL hacks (legislative friends and family) that have been there for 15, 20, 30 years will run the place in the same old way it always had been.

I say "good luck" to Mitt in his attempt to REALLY change the agency.

CNN Breaking News reports:

Citing inconsistencies in her account, police say they believe there is no suspect at large in reported kidnapping of Wisconsin college student.
The Charade Begins to Unravel

Finally some journalists are waking up to the kidnapping hoax involving Audrey Seiler. The Journal Sentinel asks these questions:

Why did Seiler wait in the lobby of her apartment, then look outside before leaving around 2:30 a.m. Saturday?

Why did she leave her apartment door open and not take any personal items with her?

Where was she for the four days she was missing?

Was she driven away in a car, or did she stay in the marsh, within two miles of her apartment, the entire time she was missing?

What were the circumstances of her first meeting with authorities in the marsh?

Why aren't police saying more?

Come on, Audrey, let's have some answers.

Follow the Money: British Bettors Back Bush

British bookie site William Hill has George Bush the favorite at European odds of 1.53, Kerry at 2.37 and Nader at 101. A bet of 100 units on Bush would get you in return 153 with a Bush victory. Another Brit site has the same spread.

In American betting parlance, this would mean Bush odds at -188 and Kerry at +138, that is if you place a bet at -188, it means that you need to bet $188 to win $100 and a bet at +138 means that you win $138 for every $100 you bet.
Wisconsin Kidnap Hoax?

Audrey Seiler has been found alive. How do I know? Well, CNN, MSNBC, FOXNEWS, and every other TV channel has told me she was found alive four days after being kidnapped.

Of course, I knew she was alive all along because I don't believe she was ever kidnapped and I don't believe she was assualted (as she claimed) in February either. This abduction is a HOAX and it is pathetic to see the news channels treat it as a straight story.

If I am proved wrong, I will happily apologize to Audrey in this space.

Color me: Unimpressed

I am unimpressed by this whole 9/11 commission. With a money-making book deal casting a shadow over the primary "star-witness", I'm feeling more and more that this commission is becoming a joke.

Everything the commission has "discovered" thus far, I knew myself on 9/12: neither Clinton nor Bush took terrorism as seriously as they should have before 9/11 and citizens like us are all culpable in our nation's unpreparedness for that day.

Liberal Blogger: Madrid Massacre Bush's Fault

Ask the 500+ victims and their families of the Spanish train disaster if Bush has made the world a safer place. Unfortunately, with the abysmal state of the world's media, only a few will probably realize that Bush's small, puppet controlled brain had something to do with their suffering. It will take a leader who thinks and leads based on principles, not campaign contributions to show the world a set of examples, to restore the American archetypes of democracy instead of the archetype of violence that Bush has set in motion.

Does Johnny Damon Have a Drug/Alcohol Problem?

A few weeks ago I heard an interview with Johnny Damon on WEEI Sports Radio down at the Red Sox's spring training camp. During the interview, Johnny Damon sounded (to my ears) either drunk or on drugs.

Now I read in today's Globe that Damon was benched during the season last year because the manager, Grady Little, thought that Damon was "engaging in too much late-night revelry".

Damon had this to say, ""Never one time last year was I incapacitated where I was so drunk that I didn't know what was going on...I'm smarter than that. I've been around. I've seen the toll it takes on guys. I'll go out and have a drink, but never was I to the point where it affected my game."

Sounds like what an alcoholic would say.

Between today's story and the interview I heard in February, I'm worried.

More Biased News Stories

This story reports that
"Teens who make a one-time pledge to remain virgins until marriage catch sexually transmitted diseases about as often as those who don't pledge abstinence, according to a study of the sex lives of 12,000 adolescents."
Actually, when the article attempts to explain the study's method it says the following:
The analysis found that in communities where at least 20 percent of adolescents pledged to remain virgins, the combined STD rate was 8.9 percent. In communities with fewer than 7 percent pledgers, the STD rate was 5.5 percent.
Isn't just as likely that kids are more likely to take the pledge to protect themselves in communities where STD rates and unprotected sex are already at high levels and that it is the OTHER 80% of kids that are driving up the teen STD rate?

Instead of "The pledge leads to unprotected sex" couldn't the study just as well be confirming "Where there are high rates of teen sex, many kids will take the pledge"?

Getting Over Race

Interview with Debra Dickerson, author of The End of Blackness , at The Atlantic. She is so correct about new ways of thinking about problems that I'm sure she'll be ignored:

Dickerson: After I finished my memoir I had all these thoughts sort of roiling around. I'd been thrust into this discourse and was trying to figure things out: I had thought I was a liberal and a Democrat. I had thought this and I had thought that. I became more sophisticated intellectually—better-read and better-educated, but I was also sort of lost, thinking such-and-such doesn't sit well with me but then again that doesn't either. So I went to that neglected shelf of books and read. I read The Souls of Black Folk in its entirety instead of those excerpts that you get in college. I read The Miseducation of the Negro and I read a lot of Frederick Douglass. I read the collected speeches of Martin Luther King Jr., and I read Malcolm X.

Before, I had assumed all of those books were very eloquent denunciations of white racism. But when you actually read those books you find that they spend very little time talking about white people. (James Baldwin, I think focuses on white people more than the others. He was an amazing writer and is very key, but I think he got too caught up in this woe-is-me stuff). But you read Ellison, and Frederick Douglass, and Albert Murray—they were so far ahead of their time. Especially Frederick Douglass; this man was a fugitive slave but he's transracial—he's beyond all this black-white stuff. Their thinking was so much more elevated than what our leaders are putting out there today. I felt so robbed, so lied to, so bamboozled—and not by the people I thought had been bamboozling me. I'd been lied to about my moral and intellectual traditions. I had been led to think that The Miseducation of the Negro was about how white people had miseducated us. But that's not what it's about. Those books are really about communal critique. DuBois and Carter G. Woodson—these guys faced lynchings just for being who they were at the time, but here they were talking not about white people, but about what the standards of our community should be!
Globe Sportswriter Whacked

Nicely delivered take-down of self-important Globe sports reporter Ron Borges at BostonSportsMedia. Borges is a flip-flopper who chooses the facts of his arguement based solely on how much it hurts the Patriots. After providing the evidence of Borges' hypocrisy, BSM delivers a final blow:

I hesitate to even bring all this up, because it is so glaringly obvious to most that Borges is a hate-filled, agenda-driven man who is blinded by his dislike of Patriots organization. Some just tell me that I'm validating him just by bringing more attention to him. Somehow though, I don't think he's going to go away by us ignoring him. So it goes.
Well said.

Iraqi Blogger Responds to a Charge that He is "Anti-Bush"

Iraqi blogger Alaa is concerned that some folks think he is trending against President Bush, but in today's entry he makes his view clear:
Regardless of any election campaign, this man has already established himself in our hearts and minds, and forever. And it is one of my cherished dreams that one day his statue will stand in the middle of Baghdad and that all the people realize finally and unequivocally the friendship that this president of America had for them and the great favor that he has done them.

We sure wish that he be re-elected to complete the great work that he started. The job does not need any new experimenting and trial and error. But of course this is not for us to decide and we have to wait for the decision of the American people.

Amen and Salamm!

The Globe is Anti-Semitic

The Globe Ombudsman mails it in with another weak performance today. Apparently she received quite a few complaining phone calls last week when the paper ran a cartoon that poked fun of Steven Spielberg on the 10th anniversary of his motion picture Schindler's List.

The cartoon in question shows a young Steven Spielberg on his newspaper route being set-upon by his hook-nosed local rabbi who grabs at the boys pants pockets in an attempt to get at the boy's earnings. The caption reads, "In his early years little Steven Spielberg gets Jewed-down by Rabbi Bankem Goldman of the Zion Temple of the Sacred Money Grubbers."

The Globe's Renee Loth answered the criticism by saying "We are concerned that a fair number of readers were disturbed or offended by the cartoon...We never intended to insult Jews or rabbis or even Steven Spielberg by running what we saw as a comic take on a cultural subject prominently in the news...We underestimated people's sensitivities to what appeared to us a broadly satiric commentary. I regret that."

In case you missed that last line, I'll repeat it for you. Loth said, "We underestimated people's sensitivities to what appeared to us a broadly satiric commentary. I regret that." You see, the problem was not with a blatantly anti-semtic cartoon, the problem was with "people's sensitivities". And what is more "broadly satiric" than money grubbing Jews, eh?

The most Chindlund can bring herself to say about this hate-filled cartoon is, "Defenders of the cartoon might argue that some readers are always going to read a cartoon literally and that cartoonists and newspapers shouldn't limit their scope because of that. True enough. But when the literal interpretation is both too easy and offensive, it should serve as a red alert."

The editors get off way too easy here, don't you think. Doesn't picking this cartoon to run say something about how the editors feel about Jews? Doesn't their lack of judgment expose a deeper hatred for Jews that we the readers should know about? Why doesn't Chinlund suggest someone resign?....fat chance.

(By the way, I took some poetic license in the above post. For a more accurate reading of what actually happened at the Boston Globe, please replace the words Jew with Catholic, Spielberg with Gibson, Rabbi with Nun, and Rabbi Bankem Goldman of the Zion Temple of the Sacred Money Grubbers with Sister Dolorosa Excruciata of the Little Sisters of the Holy Agony)

Rumor Central: UPDATE

Boston Dirt Dogs (the Matt Drudge of Boston baseball) is reporting a rumor that John Henry Williams, controversial son of the the great Ted Williams, is near death as a result of leukemia. I have no idea if it is true, but I'm passing it along as a rumor only...
The Passion of the Suburban Catholic

The Pharisees and Sadducees at the Boston Globe are already building the crosses they will need to hang high Boston's suburban Catholics. It seems that many healthy and vibrant parishes located in the suburbs are balking at committing suicide in the name of political correctness and, well, if they don't take the poison, it looks like the Globe will stick the lance into the parishes' sides to finish the job themselves.

As most Boston Catholics know, decades long shifts in demographics have left more empty pews in Boston proper and many crowded churches in the 'burbs. At a time of tight finances, fewer priests, and an aging infrastructure, it would seem reasonable to close those parishes with the fewest parishoners, the most hopeless budgets, and the worst physical plants. But the Globe is here to police the process to make sure the big, bad suburbanites don't make any common-sense decsions.

The Globe writes: "In several areas, including Brockton, Charlestown, Milton, Winchester, and the Canton-Sharon-Stoughton area, clusters are recommending that the archdiocese consider closing the parishes with concentrations of poor people, ethnic minorities, or foreign-born residents, again posing a challenge to O'Malley's pledge to protect those populations. In most cases, these parishes also are the weakest or smallest. For example, in Newton, the cluster is expected to recommend the closure of St. Philip Neri, one of the smallest parishes in that city but also the headquarters of the archdiocese's Korean community."

Somehow I doubt that any of these clusters have written O'Malley to say that he should close "parishes with concentrations of poor people, ethnic minorities, or foreign-born residents". More likely, these clusters of parishes have determined that based on the facts and figures provided by reality, poorly attended and bankrupt parishes should be the ones to close, not the well-attended, fiscally sound parishes.

But let's not allow common sense to get in the way of the Boston Globe's political agenda. When the closings come, the Boston Globe will DEMAND some wealthy suburban blood be spilled. No matter how successful these parishes might be, the Globe's obsessive need for quota-based "fairness" will force O'Malley, Pilate-like, to destroy suburban parishes in exchange for a few inches of good ink.

I Just Gave $20 to Re-Elect Bush

Why am I donating to re-elect George Bush? Well, I agree with him on the issues and I think Kerry is a phony:

Bush believes that unyielding strength is the best way to deal with our enemies. Kerry flip flops depending on the day.

Bush has a plan to improve the immigration chaos, Kerry does not.

Bush opposes partial birth abortion, Kerry favors this horrific procedure.

Bush has an opinion on gay marriage similar to mine, Kerry changes his mind depending on the audience.

Bush puts more trust in free trade than Kerry does.

Bush is more likely to take the side of the taxpayer against those who want my tax money.

Bush supports our military, Kerry has tried to cancel many important defense programs.

I could go on, but these tend to get to the heart of the matter. I support the candidates who generally match my believes and priorities...then I give them money Not the most interesting Blog posting ever, but it is twenty dollars well spent.

Some Passion reveiws from "Real People"

Internet movie site Ain't It Cool News is posting reviews for The Passion of the Christ from ordinary folks that have seen it in sneak previews. Pretty powerful stuff and much more interesting than the negative clacking from the NY Times.

The version I saw was not the final cut. It had a shot with the timecode still on it and there was a lot of music used from Last Temptation of Christ (no comment). The story is all too familiar, I’ve read and studied the Gospels hundreds of times and I was blown away at how new this all was to me. -- Douglas Tennapel

This will easily be the most important film released in 2004. It is the most graphic and accurate Jesus film ever made, and every person ought to see this movie when it's released. It doesn't matter if you consider yourself a follower of Jesus or not -- you owe it to yourself to witness this amazing piece of art. Mel Gibson has given us a masterpiece that must be seen to be believed. Really, no joke. I LOVE the Lord of the Rings movies, Spider-Man, the Last Samurai, and all the other great films in recent memory, but "The Passion" is on a whole different level altogether in terms of importance, achievement and raw artistic, cultural and spiritual value. -- Music Prof.

The visual look to this film was one part silent movie, one part mystic awakening and one part nightmare. It places you where you need to be, immediately uncomfortable yet familiar enough to go on. Visually this movie stimulates emotionally like nothing out there right now. It creeps…it doesn’t flash in your eyes, it engulfs. The camera doesn’t just film Caviezel, its star. It embraces and caresses him. Even in his darkest hour he expresses such a sense of knowing. Not the typical righteous stoicism we see in the usual film portrayals of Jesus, but a deep sense of spiritual knowing. So that even if you don’t believe in “the Jesus Story,” you can believe that Jesus was someone who possessed an inner quality of peace and forgiveness. -- Saffy

The Passion of the Christ

I don't know anything about this movie reviewer, but he seems to do a remarkable job in cutting through the storm of puffed-up criticism levelled at Mel Gibson to focus on the movie itself:

"There have been some that have refused to see the forest for the trees, and some will probably never stop viewing it through a fearful paradigm. That stance is as unfortunate as it is baffling. Take, for example, The Mona Lisa. While having a chin in the painting, it is not a painting about a chin. Neither is The Passion Of The Christ about Jews calling for Christ’s death. While those moments are present, the classic Passion story (and this film) is about the willful decision of The Son Of God to die sacrificially. It’s a story of choice, not victimization or murder. There is a guilty party, however, but it is humanity itself.

As the Scriptures made clear and THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST explicitly re-enacts, no man—Jew or otherwise—had the power to kill Christ. But even to the extent of some peoples’ involvement, Christ’s response to his persecutors remains not only one of the story’s most powerful themes, it is also the clearest moral response to assuage any concerns of violent anti-Semitic uprisings. For anyone who uses THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST as vindication for hatred and bigotry (anti-Semitic or otherwise) is as inexplicably—or willfully—obtuse to the film’s message as its critics seem to be.

A Christian who spews hate as a result of this film is an illegitimate, and stupid, one. Salvation is impossible without Christ’s death and resurrection, of which Christians are thankful for, not angry about. Most importantly, Christ’s response to those who enacted the crucifixion is not only contrary to bigotry and violence, it specifically forbids it.

THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST is no more anti-Jewish than World War II films are anti-German. Just as corrupt Nazis didn’t represent every German, neither do corrupt Jewish leaders represent an entire Jewish race. Rather than a “Jews vs. Jesus” framework, director Mel Gibson frames his story in the reality of the day, that Jesus—rather than being hated by all Jews—was a polarizing figure within the Jewish world. Some feared Him, even hated Him, but many others loved Him.

Gibson responsibly depicts this reality as we see Jews defending Christ before the Pharisees themselves, as well as other expressions of love for Christ by many other Jews. One of the film’s (and Gospels’) more fascinating perspectives is that corrupt Jewish leaders aren’t the only ones who deny Christ but some of His disciples do as well. There’s plenty of guilt to go around. A corrupt Jewish leadership may have called for an innocent Man’s death, but the Christian perspective is that they were simply doing our dirty work. And ultimately, it was Christ’s decision—not theirs, and not ours—that put Him there. It was His choice, but our guilt."

Okay, That's It!

Hey, I don't mind having my intelligence questioned by the vultures of Madison Avenue each hour of my waking day. But when they put some corn oil slop in a SPRAY BOTTLE and STILL call it "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter", well, then they've gone too far. Oh, yeah? You can't believe its not butter, eh? Have you ever SEEN real butter it's a stick, dammit... A stick!...

I Hate Stupid People in Positions of Power

Has any NFL or CBS executive ever even watched MTV? Every video on MTV features a girl who is a slut and a boy who is a gangster/rapist. Now the executives "in charge" claim ignorance that an "MTV produced halftime extravaganza" delivers on its specialty of whores and scum? Whoever approved MTV's participation in the halftime show should be fired for gross incompetence.

Dean - Now Totally Unelectable

The Boston Herald joins other news outlets in covering the revelation that Howard Dean suffered panic attacks in the past and suffered one when faced with the prospect of becoming Governor of Vermont.

I ask any Democrat to lay out for me a scenario in which a man with such a psychological background wins a national election at a time of crisis when possession of a steely nerve is demanded by the electorarte as an absolute requirement.

...and as Dr. Dean's receptionist might say, "Next!"

Kennedy Screws Kerry:

It is less than a week to the Iowa caucuses and Senator John Kerry is running for his life. So, what does his good friend Senator Ted Kennedy do? He blasts President Bush on the Iraq War in a major speech - a war voted for by John Kerry.

How can Kerry hope to maintain momentum in Iowa when the Senior Senator from the Commonwealth keeps putting one of "the worst blunders in more than two centuries of American foreign policy" on the front page?

Hey, what are friends for? Ouch.
Lies Ted Turner Told Me:

My fingers weary at that thought of writing about CNN's liberal slant, but again it must be done. Located in their political ads archive CNN links to an advertisment described thusly:

"George Bush used this well-known ad to depict Dukakis as soft on crime. Bush asserted that when Dukakis was governor of Massachussetts, convicted criminal Willie Horton was paroled and went on to commit more crimes. Do we want the same for the entire country?"

This must be the famed "Revolving Prisoner Door" ad, no? Of course not.

Instead, CNN shows the racially provocative "Willie Horton" spot that was NOT one of George Bush's advertisements.

Let's be honest, would anyone at CNN ever say that the NAACP ad against George W. was "an Al Gore" advertisment? So, then, why is it okay for CNN to say a third party ad is George H.W. Bush's?

CNN...lies, lies, lies.....
