GOOD LORD, EVEN IRAN IS PRIVATIZING ITS POST OFFICE

“The Expediency Council, the top policy making body (in Iran), on Saturday passed another part of a general plan to rescind articles 43 and 44 of the Constitution which advocate state monopoly of the economy. As per the decision made today, all major industries, manufacturing and service sectors will be ceded to the private sector in a bid to 'prevent the governing system from being a big employer'. . . . Foreign trade, banking, insurance, power generation for domestic consumption and export, telecom and postal service, railway, airlines, and shipping have been singled out by the Expediency Council as the areas that the body prefers not to remain under state monopoly.”

- Payvand’s Iran News, 10/2/04

WE WISH YOU HAD, TOO!

“When I look at my children, sometimes I wish I remained a virgin."

- The late Lillian Carter, mother of Jimmy Carter, as quoted by White House reporter Helen “Crazy Aunt in the Attic” Thomas at the N.Y. Women in Communications breakfast, New York Post, 9/29/04

SPLIT PERSONALITY


“If John Kerry is elected, he would be the first president to deliver the State of the Union AND the rebuttal.”

- Tonight Show host Jay Leno

MAN OF THE UNCOMMON PEOPLE

“On the way to the debate yesterday John Kerry stopped to get a manicure. Now that's the way to identify with the common man in America...get a manicure. Nothing wrong with manicures...but my guess is that less than one percent of the people who are likely to vote for Kerry have ever had one. He would have been better off going to sit in a middle class barbershop somewhere.”

- Talk show host Neal Boortz, 10/1/04

JOHN PAUL JONES OF THE MEKONG DELTA

“Smug, vain and blowing hard, John Kerry presents himself as the gaudily bemedaled John Paul Jones of the Mekong Delta, the war hero who fears no foe. Maybe he doesn't. But he can't reconcile himself to the harsh and unforgiving fact that we're at war again, and this time against an enemy more vile, more depraved and more wicked than any America has faced since becoming a nation 228 years ago.”

- Wes Pruden, Pruden On Politics, 10/1/04

A TRULY FRIGHTENING THOUGHT

“I’ve got your back.”

- John Kerry to a crowd on the campaign trail in Florida Saturday

YOU CAN’T

“You can't have it both ways. You can't say (Iraq) is a mistake and not a mistake. You can't be for getting rid of Saddam Hussein when things look good and against it when times are hard. You can't claim terrorists are flowing across the border into Iraq yet, at the same time, try to claim that Iraq is somehow a diversion in the war against terrorism.”

- President Bush, 10/1/04

ALL TALK AND NO ACTION

"I've never seen a meeting that would depose a tyrant or bring a terrorist to justice.”

- President Bush mocking John Kerry's promise in the debate Thursday that if elected he would call a summit to seek more international help for Iraq, 10/1/04

ONE THING IS CRYSTAL CLEAR

“It cannot be said that Kerry fails to offer a clear alternative to the president. When it comes to dealing with ‘the world,’ meaning the United Nations, Kerry would rather be popular than right.”

- James Taranto, Best of the Web, 10/1/04

REJECTING THE KERRY DOCTRINE

“When he laid out the Kerry Doctrine, he said that America has to pass a 'global test' before we can use American troops to defend ourselves. Think about this: Senator Kerry's approach to foreign policy would give foreign governments veto power over our national security decisions.

“I have a different view. When our country is in danger, the president's job is not to take an international poll. The president's job is to defend America. I'll continue to work every day with our friends and allies for the sake of freedom and peace. But our national security decisions will be made in the Oval Office, not in foreign capitals.”

- President Bush, 10/2/04

NO FRENCH VETO

“The use of troops to defend America must never be subject to a veto by countries like France.”

- President George W. Bush, 10/1/04

9 OUT OF 10 CHEESE-EATING SURRENDER MONKEYS AGREE...

“Nearly nine out of ten French people would back John Kerry if they could vote in the U.S. election, according to an opinion poll on Friday which showed deep distrust of President Bush since the Iraq war. The poll, published after Kerry and Bush battled over Iraq in a television debate, came as no surprise in the country which led opposition to the U.S.-led war and whose people were dubbed ‘cheese-eating surrender monkeys’ by American Republicans.”

THE LYIN’ KING - I

“John Kerry in a press conference last week repeated his accusation that Gen. Eric Shinseki was ‘forced out’ as U.S. Army chief of staff because he wanted more troops for Iraq. The trouble is that the Democratic presidential nominee was spreading an urban myth. The bigger trouble is that it was no isolated incident.

“Sen. Kerry last week also said the Bush administration may push reinstatement of the military draft, when in fact that idea comes only from anti-war Democrats. At the same time, he said retired Gen. Tommy Franks complained that Iraq was draining troops from Afghanistan, when the truth is he never did. Over a week earlier, Kerry blamed Bush for higher Medicare premiums when in fact they are mandated by law (one that Kerry voted for).”

- Columnist Robert Novak

THE LYIN’ KING - II

“(John) Kerry misrepresented the facts numerous times (in his debate with President Bush). For example, he charged that Bush diverted forces from Afghanistan to Iraq. Yet, the commander of both the Afghanistan and Iraq operations, now retired Gen. Tommy Franks, has unequivocally stated that is false. Kerry asserted that Iraq has cost more than $200 billion. But that is almost double the actual cost as determined by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. “Kerry disingenuously denied that he had ever accused Bush of lying about Iraq, but on at least two occasions Kerry has said Bush ‘lied.’ One such incident was reported in Kerry’s hometown newspaper. Kerry also asserted the President hasn’t made bridges and subways safer and provided as evidence that ‘they had to close down the subway in New York when the Republican Convention was there.’ But the subway was not closed. I rode the subway during the convention.”

- George Landrith, president, Frontiers of Freedom

BORDER CONTROL

“Another weak moment (in the first debate Thursday night) came when Mr. Kerry promised to shut Iraq's borders, reducing the number of insurgents. That would be a good trick, since we can't even shut our own borders to illegal immigrants.”

- Columnist Cal Thomas

VOTE M.O.T.S. 2004

“In Kerry's criticism of the Bush administration, he uses four words against Bush as if they were blasphemous: More of the same. I guess he thinks the American people don't like consistency. I'm kinda looking forward to more of the same. More bad guys dead or in jail, more tax cuts, more free people in the world, more straight talk. Even when President Bush uses words that aren't in the dictionary, the American people understand him better than they understand Kerry's double talk.”

News & Views reader Kim Reed of Belvidere, TN

SEN. HAPPY PANTS

“John Kerry detests his opponents. He detests his own staff. He detests anybody and anything that interferes with his political ambitions. Since returning from Vietnam, his main contribution to public discourse has been contempt, not courage. He possesses resentment, not hope. He does not inspire. He sulks.”

- Columnist Michelle Malkin

COMMIES FOR KERRY

“In 2000 the Supreme Court disregarded the voters' choice and installed George W. Bush. Now is the time for all Democratic minded people to stand united, march on ballot boxes and vote in massive numbers to defeat right-wing Republican control of the White House and Congress."

- Election Platform 2004, Communist Party USA

BE LIKE TED

“ ‘John Walker Lindh asked President Bush on Tuesday to commute his 20-year prison sentence for aiding the Taliban,’ the Associated Press reports: ‘His lawyer, James Brosnahan, said that Lindh was fighting alongside the Taliban in a civil war against the Northern Alliance, that he is not a terrorist and that he never fought against U.S. troops. Brosnahan said the sentence should be reduced because Yaser Esam Hamdi, another American citizen captured in Afghanistan on suspicion of aiding the Taliban, is being released after being held for three years as an enemy combatant. . . . ‘Comparable conduct should be treated in comparable ways in terms of sentencing,’ Brosnahan said at a news conference.’

“By that logic, Susan Smith should not only be sprung from prison but given a U.S. Senate seat from Massachusetts.”

- James Taranto, Best of the Web, 9/30/04

BEST AND WORST IN CONGRESS

“One annual set of insider ratings I always enjoy reading are Washingtonian magazine's annual review of the best and worse of Congress. A large number of the top Congressional staffers from both parties are surveyed to determine the winners.

“So, you may ask, who are the smartest members of Congress? On the Senate site, it was a virtual three-way tie between Senators Bill Frist (R-TN), Robert C. Byrd (D-WV) and Dick Lugar (R-IN). On the House side, Congressmen Bill Thomas (R-CA) and Barney Frank (D-MA) were by far the top finishers...

“And the dumbest legislators? Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Patty Murray (D-WA) tied for the honor on the Senate side, while Duke Cunningham (R-CA), Kathryn Harris (R-FL), Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), Karen McCarthy (D-MO) and Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) took the prize in the House.”

- Ron Gunzburger, Politics1, 10/1/04
