Unbalanced ALP leader Mark Latham used to keep a picture of Richard Nixon in his Sydney office. Maybe thatís the cause of Lathamís Nixon-like paranoia:

Mark Latham today called on Prime Minister John Howard to sack ministerial staffer and alleged dirt-digger Ian Hanke.

The opposition leader renewed an appeal to his political enemies to lay off his family and also made it clear he did not believe Mr Howard's denial of the existence of a government dirt unit digging into Mr Latham's past.

Mr Latham said he wanted Mr Howard to disband the unit and sack Ian Hanke, who worked for Workplace Relations Minister Kevin Andrews.

Tony Abbott responds:

"It seems to me the only person that has been spreading rumours about Mark Latham recently is Mark Latham.

"He goes into a press conference and starts talking about rumours - well, I hadn't heard most of them before."

Mark: Leave Checkers out of this!

And as for Gabrielle, she doesn't have a mink coat, all she's got is a good old Republican cloth coat - so there!

"Mark Latham today called on Prime Minister John Howard to sack ministerial staffer and alleged dirt-digger Ian Hanke."

Is that pronounced "Hank-EE" as in "Mr. Hankey The Christmas Turd" from the awesome "South Park" Christmas episode!?!?!?

"Hi-dee Ho!"

Dirt digging, indeed!

Looks like the beginning of the end for Knacker Lacker.

You can just see the voters in the swinging seats wondering why they should elect a tosser like Latham. The man has been given every opportunity to shine by the biased media hacks and still he can't realise that it's best not show his looniness in public.

I would say that he will completely fall apart during the election campaign.

You want some real dirt !

George W. Bush - Pro Life ??? - Not always it would seem !!!

In the winter of 1971 George W. Bush was dating a young woman (then 15!) named Robin Lowman (now Robin Garner). Miss Lowman became pregnant by Bush and he arranged for her to have an abortion - which in the great state of Texas in 1971 was very very illegal!!!

Not to mention that George W. ran as a pro-life candidate for the Presidency.

The unamed source of this story, was a friend of Robin Lowman's and the girlfriend of the man who arranged the abortion. His name is Robert Carl Chandler.

Chandler is a Bush friend and supporter from way back and he made the arrangements for Miss Lowman's abortion at the Twelve Oaks Hospital in Houston, TX (now the Bayou City Medical Center). The source overheard the call by Mr. Chandler to arrange the abortion and the source visited Robin Lowman at the Twelve Oaks Hospital after the procedure.

The source meanwhile, is afraid of coming forward, saying that she was threatened by Chandler and another Bush friend and supporter named Jim Bath. Bath has longstanding intelligence connections, and played a role in the BCCI scandal.

James Bath is also linked directly to both the bin laden family (as he was the bin laden construction co. representative in houston for years) and George W. Bush who he served with in the Texas Air National Guard. He also helped Dubbya set up his first company Arbusto in which he was a foundation investor.

Robin Lowman (now Garner) is married to Jerry Lee Garner who is an FBI agent.

So how come an illegal back room abortion was arranged by the current President who campaigns as a pro-life candidate ???

What's more why does the Christian right align itself with such a moral void, not to mention a long term alcoholic and ex-druggie???

Maybe its because many of them are more interested in extreamist politics than they are in Christ!

Source: Daily Telegraph, February 18, 2004:

"The pro-life president arranged for the procedure in the early 1970s, according to .... publisher Larry Flynt. ... The controversial publisher of Hustler magazine told the New York Daily News he will make the claims in a book coming out this summer. ... 'This story has got to come out,' said 61-year-old Flynt. 'There's a lot of hypocrisy in the White House about this whole abortion issue. I've talked to the woman's friends. ... 'I've tracked down the doctor who did the abortion, I tracked down the Bush people who arranged for the abortion I got the story nailed.'
