PROGRAMMING REMINDER


I’ll be on-the-air with talk radio guru Brian Wilson this afternoon at 1:30 p.m. (EST) on satellite radio to discuss tomorrow’s elections. Tune in to ABC-radio on Channel 125 on Sirius or 124 on XM.

MUTH’S TRUTHS

Based on the volume of email I received yesterday in response to my column “An Undecided Decides,” apparently I wasn’t the only one agonizing on the fence over tomorrow’s presidential election. I received a ton of emails in the past 24 hours along the exact same lines as the one below...

“I read your article today and I found it most enlightening,” writes Pastor Dave. “I thank you for helping make up my undecided mind. I, too, have no use for Kerry and thought of using a protest vote because I, too, am a limited government conservative. I will vote for Bush for we must present an united face against our true enemies, radical Islam.”

THE SKUNK AT THE POLITICAL PICNIC

“Because he's on nearly all the ballots - with the exceptions of Oklahoma and New Hampshire - (Michael) Badnarik could siphon enough votes from either President Bush or Democrat John Kerry to shift the outcome in a swing state. That's exactly what the Libertarians want. They've focused their efforts and advertisements on two states - New Mexico and Nevada, where competition between the two main candidates is tight. ‘We were looking for battleground states. We were looking for states where we could make the margin of difference one way or the other,’ operations director Geoffrey Neale said Thursday.”

DEMS GONE WILD

“A college instructor has apologized for kicking a student because he was wearing a Republican shirt. Fort Lewis College student Mark O'Donnell said he was showing people his College Republicans sweat shirt, which said, ‘Work for us now...or work for us later,’ when Maria Spero kicked him in the leg at an off-campus restaurant. . . . Spero, a visiting part-time instructor of modern languages, apologized to O'Donnell in a letter dated Oct. 29. “

PROTECTING POLITICAL SPEECH

Cal Thomas, one of my favorite syndicated conservative political columnists, published an analysis of the two presidential candidates yesterday. He concluded that “George W. Bush should be given four more years as president of the United States.”

Now, here’s the problem with that column. It was published in the Washington Times yesterday, as well as other newspapers. The Washington Times is incorporated. Therefore, according to the legal line of thinking of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), Thomas’ “endorsement” of President Bush is an illegal corporate in-kind donation and should be banned under the provisions of the McCain-Feingold law.

That’s the only conclusion you can draw from the FEC complaint the NRCC has filed against a pair of talk show hosts out in California.

John & Ken of the “John & Ken Show” have been opposing incumbent Rep. David Dreier and supporting his opponent on the air because of what the two consider to be Dreier’s failure to take the illegal immigration issue seriously. And according to an FEC complaint filed on October 14 by the NRCC, since John & Ken broadcast on KFI 640 AM radio...and KFI 640 AM radio is incorporated...all three are in violation of McCain-Feingold. The NRCC maintains that John & Ken’s political speech is “criminal” and urges the Justice Department to prosecute them.

The NRCC should be ashamed of itself. This is DEADLY serious stuff here, folks. This McCain-Feingold crud is getting WAY out of hand. This isn’t about John & Ken. It isn’t about illegal immigration. It isn’t about David Dreier. It’s about free speech. Political speech. The First Amendment.

I know this sort of issue doesn’t get your juices flowing like gay marriage or pork barrel spending...but it should. This is a VERY dangerous slippery slope the NRCC is starting us down. And as Republicans, they should know better.

So PLEASE...take a minute and sign our online petition to NRCC Chairman Tom Reynolds urging the NRCC to immediately withdraw this offensive FEC complaint. And then be prepared in the next Congress to work for repeal of McCain-Feingold. To sign the petition, just go to: http://www.chuckmuth.com/petition


SPEAKING OF PORK: WORST OF THE WURST

“Maxim magazine features Rep. Jim Gibbons in its November issue as one of the ‘worst of the wurst’ for his infamous pork project in Sparks. Gibbons is listed with the likes of porkmeister Robert Byrd for $225,000 given to a swimming pool ‘that Gibbons himself caused to shut down in the 1950s by filling the drain with tadpoles. When asked about earmarking his money for his own special interests, Gibbons replied, 'Who cares about the process? The process is irrelevant.' ’ “
