NEWS BRIEFLETS

Arthur Chrenkoff compiles another slab o good news out of Iraq. And the LA Times has more, including opinion from Christopher Hitchens.

John Hawkins interviews celebrity pie-dodger Ann Coulter. By the way, how come nobody ever throws pies at Michael Moore? Oh, wait ...

Religious people are crazy, according to Bill Maher. Guess he won't be voting for John Kerry.

If you missed this anti-Bush ad by Frank J. -- which is unlikely, because it was linked everywhere -- take a listen now. Or don't, just to spite me.

The carefully-cultivated image of blondes as intellectual superbeings may never recover. I first posted something about these dumb broads months ago, and they still haven't fixed their stupid site ...

Vote no to Bush! Vote no to riots!

Anyone tossing pies at Michael Moore wouldn't be likely to miss like they did with Ann Coulter. That would be like jumping out of an airplane and missing the ground.

"Kerry also sided with Bush opponents who believe that the president's firm religious convictions have seeped too deeply into policy and weakened the sacred separation of church and state in US politics."

John boy needs to read Abraham Lincoln's proclamation establishing Thanksgiving Day in the US. He'd probably make the same remark about Abe. At least GWB's Christianity is authentic. He lives it and wears it, even when he isn't wearing his church clothes. I guess that why some people can't stand the guy. Guess they prefer the Clinton view of morality.

"My task, as I see it ... is not to write every doctrine into law. That is not possible or right in a pluralistic society. But my faith does give me values to live by and apply to the decisions I make."

Kerry obviously can't read or hasn't read the Bible. The New Testament is not about pluralism - just read the text. Jesus never claimed to be a pluralist - it is very clear.

Anybody know a login for the LA Times? laexaminer/laexaminer doesn't work any more.

I liked this quote from Maher better:

Johnny Depp said this was a stupid country. And then he made me very mad and he took it back. Well, I say it. I don't take it back. It's stupid. Really stupid. It's about the marketing, don't you know? It's not about what's real. It's about what they market to people.

Well, if anyone would know about marketing turning a pile of crap into a pile of gold, it'd be Bill Maher.

He seems to be well on the way to turning that gold back into crap.

Well, somebody has to take the cheap shot, so it might as well be me...

Judging by the photo at BabesAgainstBush, they definitely have at least one expert on polymer-enhanced breasts.

Vote no to Bush! Vote no to riots!

Well, at least they have the courtesy to admit that Bush voters are grown ups.

I figure that if you tried to "pie" Moore, he's just open up that JabbatheHut piehole of his and swallow whatever was thrown at him and ask, "Thank you sir. May I have another?" So it'd be pointless. Now a hand grenade. That would be interesting.

Now a hand grenade. That would be interesting.

Yeeow...and contaminate everything in a 20-mile radius?

Billions of dollars in no-bid contracts for Iraq were let to Halliburton subsidiary Kellog, Brown and Root, sometimes in violation of Pentagon rules. The chief civilian in charge of making sure such contracts are on the up and up says she was marginalized and ignored by military officers who ignored the rules.

Lefties' Pavlovian reflex, as displayed by Ralphie above: "Here's some good news from Iraq." -- "But...Halliburton!!!!"

More drinking game material.
