Guttless


If the Republicans will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them.
— Adlai Stevenson

There are two really great things about being unemployed right now. 1) Able to watch Olympic wrestling coverage without fear of falling asleep at work. (The major-decision win in Greco-Roman (96kg?)by Egypt was stunning.) and 2) I was able to watch Bush barely refer to the Swift Boat Liars ad as part of the 527s that should be dissolved.

But that's just it. When Bush challenged Kerry to give a clear yes or no, Kerry did just that. Gwib and his minions then went about making fun of Kerry. Kerry knew it was a no-win situation, but rather than answer vaguely, "I support the President's role as Commander-in-Chief" or "That vote called on very clear actions by the President that he failed to complete, thus making him vulnerable to impeachment."

Kerry's asked Gwib to say "yes" or "no". Gwib is too spineless to do so.

Instead, he talks about all the money still floating around. Unfortunately, Gwib is actually a member of two of these evil 527s. What gives?

Here's what the deal is: 527s aren't evil. Dishonest ads are. The FTC can regulate product advertisements, but no one can regulate political speech. There were at least seven complaints filed with the FCC about Olympic beach volleyball. What the hell are our priorities?

A Bush apologist claimed that the connections between the Bush administration and the Swift Liars was like playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Jon Stewart did it in two. He then did it in one degree.

The material are lies. The Bush administration is driving it. They have every responsibility to denounce their own actions and the lawyer who fell on his own sword was clearly taking one for the team. He'll be rewarded.

Can you point to one, just one TV ad from the Kerry campaign or a 527 that lies about the President?
Geez, that was a screed. Another benefit of unemployment.
