Moore of the Propagandist

There's been a lot of screaming on the internet about a newspaper article Michael Moore inserted into F9/11 showing a headline from The (Bloomington) Pantagraph newspaper. Well, now the newspaper is pissed and wants an apology from Moore for faking the headline and manufacturing the date of publication to make it look like Gore won the recount.

This guy is a complete fraud and why people believe anything he does is beyond me. Then again, it's the loony leftists that believe him, so I shouldn't be surprised.

What? No Recession?

The loony left will probably crying foul now that the Commerce Department is saying that the 2001 Slump May Not Have Been Recession at All.

So much for the Bush Recession that the left has been whining about.
Top Ten Ways John Kerry Celebrated Winning The Democratic Nomination

10. Got big "nominee" tatoo on his ass

Conspiracy du Jour -- July Surprise?

The New Republic rehashes its claims about a July Surprise concocted by the Bush administration to grab high value targets in the tribal region of Pakistan. About a month ago, TNR printed the same article, and now they're updating it with this capture. Of course, the article stated that:
a White House aide told ul-Haq last spring that "it would be best if the arrest or killing of [any] HVT were announced on twenty-six, twenty-seven, or twenty-eight July"--the first three days of the Democratic National Convention in Boston.

The arrest was announced on the 29th. I guess they blew it. So much for conspiracies. And furthermore, the TNR claims that the US's pressure on Musharraf just began (to fit into the election conspiracy), and asked this question:
Pushing Musharraf to go after Al Qaeda in the tribal areas may be a good idea despite the risks. But, if that is the case, it was a good idea in 2002 and 2003. Why the switch now?

Well, there was no shift. In fact, the US has been pushing into the tribal region for over 2 years, as reported in the June 28, 2002 edition of the Christian Science Monitor. The article stated:
This marks the first major combat operation inside Pakistan's autonomous tribal areas, and underscores the shift in the war on Al Qaeda from Afghanistan to Pakistan. In May, US special forces and Pakistani troops searched a madrassah in Northern Waziristan.

Well, so much for that conspiracy.

...but You Got Ken Lay

ABC News runs with a story today about Steven Bing, a Hollywood hotshot donor to the Kerry campaign, who apparently has some shady connections. The dem reply is predictable: you got Ken Lay. Of course, Kenny Boy spread his money around to 71 sitting Senators and nearly half of the House of Representatives. As for Bush, he (and Enron employees) gave $700,000 to Bush's various campaigns over 10 years. That pales in comparison to Bing's individual donations of $16,000,000.

In His Socks?

The only time I ever put anything other than my feet in my socks is when I try to hide something like money. It seems that FoxNews is the only one with this angle:
Berger and his lawyer said Monday night he knowingly removed the handwritten notes by placing them in his jacket, pants and socks, and also inadvertently took copies of actual classified documents in a leather portfolio.

It's been since October 2003. How long does it take to figure out if he did something wrong?

Nope, No WMDs Here, Move Along

Let's see if this article, U.S. Removes Iraqi Nuclear and Radiological Materials, makes it onto the news. I doubt it.

We Told You So

The US is pulling out peacekeepers in war zones where our service personnel won't be protected according to Rooters. I've complained about this issue relating to the International Criminal Court and jurisdiction over non-signatories like the US. This is the first time in history that a country would be subject to a treaty it didn't sign. So, the only option is to not put us in a situation where the treaty would come into play. I look at this as a God-send -- the ICC and UN will now keep the US out of forays where we shouldn't be in the first place. Thank you UN and your "one worlders".

Debate Dean that is. USAToday is reporting that Nader and Dean will be debating on July 9th before a studio audience. Among the topics for debate: why should anyone care about this debate? and if a tree falls in the woods does it make a sound?
