The DNC would Rather Lie

" Dear (athletic) [Supporter],

Back in February, President Bush sat down in the Oval Office for an interview with Tim Russert and spoke about his service in the National Guard. Bush told us, "I put in my time, proudly so." He said, "And I'm telling you, I did my duty."

But now we know that Bush dishonored the Oval Office by lying to the American people.

New investigations from multiple media sources have revealed the truth about President Bush's service. New military documents show that Bush disobeyed a direct order from his commander to take a flight physical and "failed to perform to U.S. Air Force/Texas Air National Guard standards" -- and was grounded as a result.

Rather: "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!"

RATHER: "Not even discussed, nor should it be. I want to make clear to you, I want to make clear to you if I have not made clear to you, that this story is true, and that more important questions than how we got the story, which is where those who don't like the story like to put the emphasis, the more important question is what are the answers to the questions raised in the story, which I just gave you earlier.

"What's the Font Size, Kenneth?
September 10, 2004, 04:36:14 EDT
After being largely confined to the internet and talk radio yesterday, coverage of CBS's apparent usage of forged documents has exploded into more traditional media outlets with several reports from the Associated Press, multiple stories by ABC News, The New York Times, The Lost Angeles Times, Fox News Channel, a front-page story in the Washington Post and more.

CBS News hasn't been so pilloried in the press since Dan Rather's 2001 keynote speech at a fund-raiser for Texas Democrats. "

I have in my possession
a somewhat passionate letter written in the early '70's by CBS's Dan Rather to the ladies collectively known as "Dawn" (of 'Tony Orlando and Dawn.' fame) offering to be the meat in a "Dawn Manwich". Now, where he got a typewriter in 1972 that used the Century Gothic font I don't know. But as Dan himself might say:
"'Tis not mine to question why,
'tis but my job to smear and lie."
Yeah, I know. I'm goin' to hell.

Keep talkin' T-Bone

"Teresa Heinz Kerry says "only an idiot" would fail to support her husband's health care plan.

If Kerry is elected, Heinz Kerry predicts that opponents of his health care plan will be voted out of office. She says, "Only an idiot wouldn't like this."
Every time that over-bred, faux Romanov, throwback opens her mouth, Bush's numbers go up.

Charles Adler provides A Voice of Sanity
from that revolting little/big country to the north

"EIGHTEEN QUESTIONS to Canadians who have been exposed to the cynical voices of anti-Americanism:
  1. Do you still think the war on terror is a figment of some American right-winger's imagination?
  2. Do you think the capital of evil is Washington?
  3. Do you think that the massacre of the children of Beslan is a logical outgrowth of American foreign policy?
  4. Do you think the three "evil doers" Bush, Rumsfeld and Cheney are behind this?
  5. Do you think that Michael Moore is correct when he implies that the war on terror is just an excuse for American corporate conspirators to profit on the misery of others?
  6. Do you think the CBC will stop calling it the "so-called war on terror" and start calling a spade a spade?
  7. Do you think the CBC and other members of the western media will try to rationalize what the terrorists did by focusing on the cause of Chechnya?
  8. The next time Israeli children are blown up on bus in Israel, will the world understand that those who mastermind the attacks are the political cousins of the assassins in Russia?
  9. Do you think the terror that gripped Russia could not happen in Canada?
  10. Do you think this country can inoculate itself against terror by being as anti-American as possible?
  11. Did that work for the Russians?
  12. If you agree with Vladimir Putin that terror is the consequence of weakness, is it time for Canada to beef up our military?
  13. If terrorists think that Russia's defences are weak, what must they think of our own?
  14. Is it time to stop listening to the stupidity of Carolyn Parrish?
  15. What about the timidity of Paul Martin?
  16. Is it time that Canadians looked for stronger leadership in the war on terror?
  17. Is it time to stop worrying about American warts, and start focusing on terrorist bullets?
  18. Or should we wait for our children to walk a mile in the shoes of the children of Beslan?"

I saw his smile as he killed my friends.

"THE full horror of the Russian school atrocity began to emerge yesterday as traumatised children told horrific tales of stabbed babies and brutal rapes.

It has also emerged that scores of the 323 who died - including many children - had been shot in the back.

While despairing soldiers and rescue workers moved among the growing pile of body bags, it was revealed that an 18-month-old baby had been repeatedly stabbed by a black-clad terrorist who had run out of ammunition....

A shocking account of the siege has come from Indira Dzetskelova, the mother of 12-year-old Dzerase who was guarded by two women suicide bombers during the siege. She said: "On the first day they shot a man before my daughter's eyes. They frightened the kids by saying that water in the tap was poisoned.

"The famished children had to eat rose petals from bouquets which they specially bought for their teachers to mark the first day of term. Parents who were also captured had to feed their kids with all the window plants.

"After they ate all the petals, my daughter said that she started to nibble the rose plants.

"She told me that several 15-year-old girls were raped by terrorists. She heard their terrible cries and screams when those monsters took them away."

Her traumatised daughter Dzerase sobbed as she added: "When the assault started, some of us were running out through the school dining room.

"We had to run across and jump over dead bodies. Can I ever forget it? Is it possible that one day I will forget it?

"The terrorists started to shoot from the roof, then one of them ran into the dining room and started to shoot from the window.

"I saw kids and women falling to the ground. And I saw that vermin's face. I saw his smile as he killed my friends."

Diana Gadzhieva, 14, was held with her sister Akinba, aged 11. She told how the rebels executed all the adult men in a room upstairs and how she was forced to lie face down on the gym floor.

She said: "There was not enough space for us and we were lying on top of each other. The rebels needed paths to walk around the gym. They shouted they would shoot anyone whose arm or leg was across their paths.

"They also said they would kill anyone who looked up.

"We saw groups of men hostages going out and never coming back."

She also told of the moments when the bloody firefight started and how the rebels triggered a series of explosions inside the gym.

Diana said: "There was terrible panic and a few boys jumped out of the windows. My sister and I did not want to run out - we were scared of being shot.

"But then the second explosion happened and something heavy fell down on us. I saw children around me lying in blood and not moving.

"Just next to me there was a woman covered in blood. She was dead. I also saw many arms and legs, torn from bodies.

"All the bombs were connected with cords and started blowing up one after another, getting closer and closer to us.

"I took Alina's hand and we ran to the window and jumped out. We were running as quickly as possible - our backs were terribly hot from the fires."

Zalina Vazagova, 13, also told of the terrifying moment when a bomb exploded in the gym ceiling.

She explained: "I heard a terrible crack above my head and closed my eyes. When I opened them, I thought I was dead. There was so much blood around me.

"One granny was lying with a hole in her head. My PE teacher, Ivan Konstantinovich's body hit my leg.

"All the kids were crying, 'Please don't shoot! Please don't kill us'. But the rebels did not listen to us.

"Then I saw an open window and just jumped out. My little sister Lena was left inside there." And sobbing, she added: "I don't know if she's alive. She was only ten."

Madame Malkin and a host of others are most put out. Let's share that with Delta's Customer Service line, shall we?
"This letter is to the young female soldier from Benton, who I had the privilege to meet this past Friday evening as we were both trying to get home to Arkansas. Returning from a business trip to New Jersey, I was changing planes in Cincinnati when we met. I had just boarded Delta Flight 6281 (operated by Chautauqua Airlines, a Delta Connection Carrier), Delta's last flight of the evening to Little Rock, when you came onboard and sat down in front of me. I, along with other passengers who had already boarded, listened while you shared your story with us. Having spent [more than] six months in Iraq, you were traveling home to Arkansas. While in Iraq, you had been under enemy fire frequently - on many occasions, several times a day. You had lost two fellow soldiers from your post, and just recently (watched) another lose a leg. You were exhausted from two days of travel, having flown from Iraq to Kuwait, from Kuwait to the Netherlands, from the Netherlands to Cincinnati Š but you were excited and happy, because Cincinnati to Little Rock meant you would be home, just in time for your youngest child's second birthday. You had 18 days' leave remaining before returning to Iraq.

This letter is also to the well-dressed, middle-aged woman who boarded the plane late, who through some administrative error had been assigned the same seat as the soldier. Your behavior made it obvious to me and those around me that you had no intention of handling the situation in a mature way. You approached the flight attendant and demanded "your seat." As the flight attendant worked with the gate crew to try and resolve the issue, the soldier was asked to leave the plane. Shortly thereafter, you returned. When I inquired as to whether you were aware that the individual who had previously been in "your seat" was a soldier traveling home from Iraq on leave to see her family, your verbatim response was, "So what Š I'm a victim from Chicago! What's the difference?" All within earshot were dumbfounded. It was apparent that you have no appreciation for your fellow Americans who leave home and family and risk their lives wearing the uniform of the United States military.

This letter is also to Delta Airlines. When I, along with several others onboard, approached the Chautauqua flight attendant volunteering to give up one of our seats for the soldier, she left to ask the pilot if that could be arranged, then returned to inform me that the pilot was discussing it with "ops." I overheard part of her ensuing conversation with the pilot, where he conveyed the message that Delta would not permit a paying passenger to be replaced with a "non-rev" Š so, in the end, the decision which caused the soldier to spend yet another night away from home was a financial one. Why, instead, don't soldiers like this one get preferential treatment from Delta instead of being placed last on the list? I am, and have been for many years, a Delta Medallion frequent flier, and may continue to fly Delta when appropriate. However, in spite of Delta's well-publicized financial difficulties, if it is your corporate policy to prioritize profit margin over principled corporate citizenship, then I will be a vocal opponent of any federal financial aid to Delta Airlines..."
