  • Man.

    You know, Kerry should just kick Bush in the teeth at the debate on Thursday night. Just walk on stage, smile at the crowd and then go all “Oz” on him.

  • Laughing at the image. “How’ja like summa this, Dubya?”

    Of course the Fox talking heads would spin it to Bush’s advantage anyway:

    “The president repeatedly struck Kerry’s fists with his face.”
    “That’s right, Tom. Tomorrow morning Kerry’s knuckles will know they’ve been in a fight.”

  • Powerful article.

    I always feel bemused when people say, “Isn’t the world better off with Saddam Hussein out of power?” Because sure, it’s good he’s not in power, but a) we don’t know if Iraq will be better off, because that future isn’t written yet; and b) nobody ever seems to ask, “But at what price? Would the families of the thousand-plus dead and many more injured agree that this price was worth it, when the measures that were in place obviously were effectively keeping him from being a direct threat to the U.S.? Shouldn’t we have exhausted every other possible measure before risking innocent lives?”

    I hear about how Saddam had the intent and the capacity to go after us, but nobody seems to lean on the fact that *particularly* given that intent and capacity, the fact that we’ve found so little by way of WMD indicates that the short leash we had on him really was effective.

    But I’m preaching to the choir here, I know. Man, I wish we really did have a liberally biased media. Maybe some of these points would be made. Right now it just seems like no one wants to bell the cat (no offense to Zoot, of course).

  • Yes, the famed liberal media. The Republicans’ dirty fighting extends to viciously “working the refs,” to insure that their misfeasance and propaganda isn’t challenged. There’s a piece in Salon today on The Cowardly Broadcasting System, which makes the case that: “CBS cravenly killed a “60 Minutes” segment about Bush’s deceptive case for invading Iraq. What did it contain that was too much for voters to see?” There’s another piece on Yahoo about Texas Republican Joe Barton calling for congressional hearings into TV news operations. Can you imagine anything designed to be more chilling to aggressive news coverage?
