KNAVE OF THE WEEK

“After the third presidential debate, Mrs. Cheney, the vice president's wife, had a few choice words for Mr. Kerry after the Democratic candidate slung some campaign mud at her daughter, Mary. Her angry rebuttal — ‘[Mr. Kerry] is not a good man’ — was more than justified. Mrs. Edwards apparently doesn't think so.

“Speaking on ABC Radio, Mrs. Edwards said: ‘[Mrs. Cheney] overreacted to this and treated it as if it's shameful to have this discussion [on Mary Cheney's lesbianism]. I think that's a very sad state of affairs ... I think that it indicates a certain degree of shame with respect to her daughter's sexual preferences.’

“Wrong, Mrs. Edwards. But to explain why you're wrong would bestow a degree of respectability on your comment, which, frankly, speaks for itself. For taking the Kerry-Edwards campaign to a new low, Mrs. Edwards is our Knave of the Week.”

- Washington Times, 10/16/04

WHAT IF THE SHOE WAS ON THE OTHER FOOT?

In response to both Sen. Edwards and Sen. Kerry going out of their way to bring up on national television the fact that Dick Cheney’s daughter is gay - and Mrs. Edwards saying that Mrs. Cheney must be “ashamed” of her daughter - News & Views reader Petty Thomas of Fort Worth raises an excellent point: “What would the Democrats have said if President Bush had noted that obesity is the new serious health danger, and had asked Sen. Edwards what his wife's reaction was to this problem?”

Oh, man! Would the fur be flying on THAT one!

BLAME KERRY

Haiti is a mess. A day without violence there is like a day without sunshine in Las Vegas. Almost never happens. And the head of the UN peacekeepers there blames it on...John Kerry.

You did hear about this didn’t you? It was in all the local papers and on every local news broadcast, wasn’t it? Sure it was.

According to Brazilian Gen. Augusto Heleno Ribeiro, statements John Kerry made about the situation there have given supporters of ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide hope that if Kerry gets elected “a change in American policy could contribute to Aristide’s return.” So the “insurgents” continue to keep the country unstable while praying for a Kerry victory on November 2.

Gee, I wonder if Kerry’s “defeat and retreat” statements on Iraq may be similarly contributing to the violence which continues there, as well? Duh.

KERRY LAWYER DEMANDS EQUAL TIME

In a letter to the president of Sinclair Broadcasting Company on Friday, Kerry-Edwards 2004 attorney Marc Elias is demanding that Sinclair afford the Democrat ticket “equal time” on each and every one of Sinclair’s 62 affiliate stations that dare to air the “Stolen Honor” documentary which chronicles John Kerry’s post-Vietnam anti-war activities. These people are SCARED TO DEATH over the possibility that the untold story of Vietnam veterans and POWs will get out before election day. I wonder why?

THE MAN KERRY WANTS TO SHUT UP

Carlton Sherwood is a Pulitzer Prize winner who produced the “Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal” documentary. Naturally, the Kerry campaign wants people to believe this film is nothing more than a political advertisement for the Bush-Cheney campaign, suggesting it’s just a partisan smear. But Mr. Sherwood tells the Scripps Howard news service, “There’s nothing political about this. It’s personal.”

Here’s how Scripps Howard describes this “partisan” hack: “A self-proclaimed Navy brat who eventually settled in New Jersey, Sherwood attended high schools in New Jersey and Philadelphia, then enlisted in the Marines, becoming a sniper. When he was discharged after four years of service, part of it with the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines in Vietnam, he had earned a sergeant's ranking and three Purple Hearts for wounds to his head, neck and arms, he says.”

Sounds like this man has earned the right to have his side of the story told.

MILITARY REJECTS WAR HERO CANDIDATE

Get this: A study by the Annenberg Public Policy Center reveals that military men and women prefer President Bush over Vietnam war hero John Kerry in the November 2 election by a huge margin of 3 to 1. Go figure.

And now you know why the Kerryites are working so feverishly to suppress the military vote overseas.

EARNING KOCH’S VOTE

“Earlier this year, Edward Koch, the popular former mayor of New York City who once served in the U.S. House, shocked his party with a ringing re-election endorsement for President Bush. Koch has never been anything if not a consistently liberal Democrat. Koch’s sentence of endorsement was: ‘President Bush has earned my vote because he has shown the resolve and courage necessary to wage the war against terrorism.’ He added that John Kerry and all but one of the other Democrat contenders ‘...inspire no such confidence. In order to get their party’s nomination, they must pander to its radical left wing.’ "

THE FAITH-BASED PRESIDENCY

“Bruce Bartlett, a domestic policy adviser to Ronald Reagan and a treasury official for the first President Bush, told me recently that 'if Bush wins, there will be a civil war in the Republican Party starting on Nov. 3.' The nature of that conflict, as Bartlett sees it? Essentially, the same as the one raging across much of the world: a battle between modernists and fundamentalists, pragmatists and true believers, reason and religion.

'' ‘Just in the past few months,' Bartlett said, 'I think a light has gone off for people who've spent time up close to Bush: that this instinct he's always talking about is this sort of weird, Messianic idea of what he thinks God has told him to do.' . . . ‘This is why he dispenses with people who confront him with inconvenient facts,' Bartlett went on to say. 'He truly believes he's on a mission from God. Absolute faith like that overwhelms a need for analysis. The whole thing about faith is to believe things for which there is no empirical evidence.'

“...But faith has also shaped his presidency in profound, nonreligious ways. The president has demanded unquestioning faith from his followers, his staff, his senior aides and his kindred in the Republican Party. Once he makes a decision -- often swiftly, based on a creed or moral position -- he expects complete faith in its rightness.

“The disdainful smirks and grimaces that many viewers were surprised to see in the first presidential debate are familiar expressions to those in the administration or in Congress who have simply asked the president to explain his positions. Since 9/11, those requests have grown scarce; Bush's intolerance of doubters has, if anything, increased, and few dare to question him now.”

- Author and former Wall Street Journal reporter Ron Suskind, New York Times, 10/17/04

CELEBRITY CAT FIGHT

“While in London collecting a song-writing award from Q magazine, pop pianist Elton John launched into a tirade after finding out that Madonna had been nominated for Best Live Act. ‘Anyone who lip-synchs in public on stage when you pay 75 pounds to see them should be shot,’ John said. ‘Madonna, best f***ing live act? F*** off,’ John added. ‘Since when has lip-synching been live?’ “

- James Hirsen’s Left Coast Report, 10/14/04

A SHOCKING UNION POSITION? NOT.

“South Africa has more public holidays than almost any other country. Human Rights Day, National Women’s Day, Youth Day, Heritage Day and Workers’ Day are among the 14 statutory holidays celebrated. The country’s business leaders say that at least one of the holidays has to go, insisting that the country can’t afford the $600 million each of them costs. But the powerful trade unions are fighting back. Not only do they say they won’t allow any holidays to be canceled, but they also are lobbying for more days off.”

I think a better "what if" about Cheney's daughter would be if a republican candidate, responding to the decline in morality evidenced in music, fashion, and the like, talked about the see-through dress that John Kerry's daughter wore to the film festival in Cannes.

I have watched the Democrats become more vulgar and debased as time
goes by, and this current gang from Kerry on down leads the 40-year pack
in vulgar depravity. The Party has become disconnected from any sense of decency, integrity and honesty. It seems to have adopted the Marxist axiom, "The end justifies the means".....do and say ANYTHING that one believes will advance his agenda to gain power over the people.

I called kerry's office today and asked them why Kerry was trying to stop the Viet Nam vets from "freedom of speech"? Her reply was they did not object to freedom of speech, only to the fact they were not paying for their air time and after all if we gave free air time to every poor person where would we be?
CAN YOU BELIEVE??
I reminded her that Kerry had been offered equal time on the station to respond to the Viet Nam veterans and refused to do so and also has repeatly refused to open his military records to the public. I also reminded her that Kerry had no problem accepting money from the rich like George Soros and Moore to pay for his airtime and yet refused the same to men who fought and died for this country.
At this point she got angry and said "no matter what I say you have your own viewpoint and will not change your mind".
At which point I replied "Yep" cause you have not given me any honest answers and I want you and Kerry to know I judge my president on his past and present actions and Kerry has failed both.
