Well gol danged them microphones! Never know when they are turned off! Looks like John Kerry mighta taken a baby step towatd me likin' him more with his commenets about the Repubs being crooks and liars...

Ahhh, no that the Dems ain't crooks and liars, also...

But at least someone is callin' it the way I see it, even if it is another crook and liar.....

So, at least for now, Kerry get a gold star. 99 more and I will most likely vote fir him...

Oh, BTW, did those comments ever get the Repubs torqued? I love it!!!

Hastert demands an apology for Kerry's remark even though Kerrys remark had no subject to reveal who he was referring to.

Thought apologies are next.

A woman down the street from me is now facing life in prison for espionage. She actually lobbied to let the UN inspectors do their job and not let the US pull them out under threat of the gun.

She is out now on half million dollar bail. The govenment case against her includes the word peacenik.

Her goes another round of thought crimes punishable by the misuse of our espionage statutes.

I like that typo of Bobert "Rebubs" - I think you should keep it.

Is it considered controversial for Kerry to say that Bush and company are crooks and liars? That's quite mild language really.

Use of words like 'liars' and 'crooks', once let out of the bottle, are too difficult for politicians to control because they puncture the facade they try and maintain.

Frankly, so few politicians aren't liars and/or crooks, I don't see why anyone would bat an eye at the statement.

Now, the woman just arrested for espionage, it will be interesting to see how the Kerry camp spins that one. She will be claiming selective prosecution under the Patriot Act I'm assuming, for her anti-war work. I really can't imagine Kerry coming to her defense in an election year. If he does, he's definitely got my vote. If not, well...at least we'll know where he really stands on civil liberties and the Patriot Act, eh?

Yes, that is the story being discussed. When the woman was shown on the evening news being escorted to the police car, she yelled at the cameras that she was innocent, and being arrested for her anti-war activism.

Heady stuff.

I don't know if it is lag time, or what the reason is, but none of the online left newsites (AlterNet, Common Dreams, Working for Change) is carrying anything about the woman's story today, despite pretty widespread coverage of the story by the mainstream news media yesterday.

She is a second cousin to Bush's Chief of Staff, accordin to one news article which also clarified the charges: Lindauer is not charged with espionage. She was charged with conspiring with Raed Al-Anbuke and Wisam Al-Anbuke to violate a law that requires agents of foreign governments who are in the USA to register with the attorney general. The Al-Anbukes are sons of Iraq's former liaison to the U.N. weapons inspectors.

Good for Kerry for telling the truth and sticking by it. If anyone doubts, be sure to read this breaking article at Salon, in which an Air Force veteran officer explains how the shrubites cooked the books when it came to WMD's, as we all *knew:* click here.

A commentator on this morning's news mentioned that a couple of times Bush has been caught by a live mike making outrageous statements, but his language was "so colorful" that it couldn't be aired on the media. This, along with the fact that the reporters who got him on tape, or their editors, were too damned wimpy (or right wing) to do anything with them. The commentator didn't elaborated on what he meant by "so colorful," but it doesn't take much imagination to figure that it involved the use of the "seven forbidden words" or something close. This by a sitting President could possibly raise the eyebrows of just about everybody and maybe cause some members of one of his main voting blocks, the religious right, to subject good old straight-and-narrow, family-values Georgie-Boy to an "agonizing reappraisal."

Of course, "Give 'em Hell" Harry Truman did it all the time, but he wasn't trying to be a goody-two-shoes for anybody. What you saw is what you got. You always knew exactly what he was thinking, expletives and all. I liked ol' Harry.

I don't think he cared if the mic was on or off. That's what he
believes. It takes courage to make those statements if you are
a front-runner for the presidency. It's no skin off anyone's nose

Kerry's people also want to keep their man in front of the tv cameras on the nightly news. Now that Kerry has the nom all sewn up, America ain't payin' no attention to the race. So in those circumstances, campaigns need to stir a bit of controversy into the mix in order to get back into the news cycle.

I'm quite certain Kerry's "gaffe" was intentional, and done so that the screaming punditry could keep playing over and over and over "those guys are a bunch of liars and crooks".

That doesn't hurt Kerry, it helps him.

Well, I'm gettin' a kick out of the Repubs reaction. One by one they're saying that they aren't crooks or liars and then bringing up their latest lie about Kerry wanting to extract $900B from the middle class.

Question: If you ask a statistican or economist to go about proving a point yopu want to make and he or she figgures out how to rationalize the position, is it a lie to forward the position? Hmmmmmm? Intregrity is certainly becoming a slippery commodity...

That woman arrested for espionage - I don't have a thing to say about her case. BUT:

Her father ran for governor in Alaska in the late 90's in a campaign astonishing for its stupidity and viciousness. He was a Republicant carpetbagger with a vague Alaskan connection running on money provided from his out-of-state wife. I'll never forget his campaign charge that the democrats were based on blasphemy.

The only connection I've noticed between father and daughter is they both have the same shit-eating grin.

And he's right. He did not elaborate... more on that later. The resident's men are conivers. No visionaries need apply. The modus opperandi is bullying and thuggery... stealing and cheating, framing and smearing... war without due process... leadership without accountability...

The last tango with Harris was a perfect example. Oliver North's idea of a necessary coup couldn't be more in synch... These are pushy dudes with guns and info... who would love to dare you into a contest of 'who's got the lower ethical nature'... they will win that. Rats that win the rat race.

We will defeat them in November. America is strong! ...in spite of the Bush residency... certainly not because of it. Remember... being well informed is the basis for being a patriotic citizen of a democracy... Oh, and... voting...

Patriots for Kerry!

The Founders were not democrats and socialists..., but conservatives who had a healthy distrust of political passions and who devised a complex system designed to frustrate the schemes of social redeemers and others convinced of their own invincible virtue. Too bad we could not eliminate the political party system and elect decent politicians like them.

Re: Lindauer, from the CNN:

"She was accused of conspiring to act as a spy for the Iraqi Intelligence Service and with engaging in prohibited financial transactions involving the Iraqi government under Saddam Hussein.

...The government said she accepted payments from the Iraqis for her services and expenses amounting to a total of $10,000, including $5,000 she received during a trip to Baghdad in February and March 2002, where she allegedly met with Iraqi intelligence officers."

She was ordered for psychiatric evalustion and allowed to post a bond.

So the operative word is 'conspiracy' rather than 'espionage'.

Now that ain't 'xactly so, brucie. They're all fir hire, 'cept it seems that the Repubs actually have this little implant that makes pathological lieing like, ahhhh, state of the art.

Has anyone ever watched Bush when he lies? He's pathological. Hey, I don't mean to say that is a bad thing for a politican 'cause its a wonderful quality. Most liars will give themselves away with slight eye movements left or right as they deliver the lie. Not Bush. This means that he has convinced himself that he is telling the truth?!?!?...

That just point to the fact that he way out of the real world. Okay, he talks about his "Now Child Left Behind" education reform as if he was actually paying for it like he said he would. Maybe he doesn't know that it is grossly unfunded????.... I mean, that would allow him to go out and say the dumbass stuff that he says about no child being left behind??? Maybe he just doesn't have a clue... He says he doesn't like to read or watch the news.......

(Bobert, sounds like yer making excuses fir Bush...)

Ignore the last paragraph. Bush is pathological in his lieing...
