If Arthur Chrenkoff could vote in the US election, he'd vote for:

George Bush - an election-stealing cokehead with a layabout wife and alco daughters, whose running mate, a corrupt war profiteer has a leso daughter he's ashamed of.

(according to, respectively: Al Gore's daughter Karenna, Teresa Heinz Kerry's son Chris, Teresa herself (before a retraction), the Deputy Chairman of the DNC Ben Johnson, the Kerry campaign, John Kerry himself, and John Edwards's wife Elizabeth)

Nice people. As Tom Wolfe (see post below) observes: "You are considered twisted and retarded if you support Bush in this election. I have never come across a candidate who is so reviled. Reagan was sniggered it, but this is personal, real hatred." Yet the Democrats complain about a divisive President ...

I saw James Carville and a top Bush campaign aide on the NBC Today show this morning. The Republican was reserved, polite and listed Bush's accomplishments....positive about his candidate.

Carville on the other hand was absolutely fuming with spit flying as he ran down the Democrats preprinted mantra of Bush's failures, I thought he was going to have stroke. Negative. I don't recall his saying a positive thing about his own candidate. It's sad that a party that does have a few good men [somewhere], has let the angry far left take over.

Why exactly is James Carville even on TV? That guy is downright disturbing looking, could they not find conjoined twins attached at the forehead to do political commentary or what?

OMG checkout moore

There he was, OBL, all tan and rested and on videotape (hey, did you get the feeling that he had a bootleg of my movie? Are there DVD players in those caves in Afghanistan?)

Projection is a common trait of the Looney Left. DemocraticUnderground is already cry foul over evidence of voter fraud in Ohio and Pennsylvania -- ignoring that fact that all the evidence points to pro-Democrat groups!

Arthur only left off the Hitler, chimp, and dry drunk compliments.

The funny thing about a rich kid calling Bush a cokehead is that many limousine liberals do coke. They also often unscrupulously cheat and profiteer, drink as if their lives depended on it, come from dysfunctional families, include a lot of trophy wives and indolent playboys, and do the lesbian chic thing. If anything, they should all be voting for a ticket they absurdly claim is much like themselves.

Here is the reason for the anti-Bush vitriol. The Democrats know that they are losing ground. Even if Kerry wins, the Congress will be dominated by Republicans. There is a real rightward shift in American politics, and Democrats are scared and angry. After all, they have ruled America for almost 50 years, and have come to see such preeminence as their right. They have ceased to connect with ordinary Americans, but they don't realize it.

Bit off topic but talking about the loony left I just heard the ABC's David Marr assuring Australia that the Australian Broadcasting Corporation is not biased and anti-American, it's just misunderstood. Apparently us proles just don't understand how ABC journalists express themselves. It seems that the Australian Broadcasting Authority has a similar comprehension problem.
Marr seems to have been on leave from the Sydney Morning Herald an awfully long time, perhaps Henny has refused to take him back?

"...did you get the feeling that he had a bootleg of my movie?"

I suspect that Moore probably sent OBL a copy of F9/11 as a birthday present.

Winner of Melbourne Cup today was overwhelming favourite and 2003 winner Maykbe Diva.

Election: Previous winner and current favorite set to win?

"Diva" ~ "Dubya"!

The 2000 Melbourne Cup augured a Bush win:

1 . BREW (Bush used to drink)
2 . Yippyio (Yeeehaw!)
3 . Second Coming (Born again)

This bitterness is exactly the reason they shouldn't be trusted with power again until they can get things in perspective. They can't face objective facts: the recounts didn't change the outcome, Gore not Bush took the matter to the courts, (When they say Bush was appointed not elected, what they really mean is that the courts should have appointed Gore.) and the Electoral College is still the law. They don't really like to think of the U.S. as a federation of real states. They prefer to think of the states as provinces or colonies of Washington, D.C.

I don't know how many times I've heard Kerry, with a straight face, say that Bush doesn't know what it's like for the middle class. Bush may be rich, but he's far more middle class than Kerry, with his finishing school education, ever thought of being.

I think the most horrible thought for me about a Kerry presidency, aside from the millions of Iraqis who trusted us and got shafted again, is having to listen to that droning, wandering, nuanced voice of his for the next four years.

"Osama bin Laden warned in his October Surprise video that he will be closely monitoring the state-by-state election returns in tomorrow's presidential race — and will spare any state that votes against President Bush from being attacked, according to a new analysis of his statement.

The respected Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors and translates Arabic media and Internet sites, said initial translations of a key portion of bin Laden's video rant to the American people Friday night missed an ostentatious bid by the Saudi-born terror master to divide American voters and tilt the election towards Democratic challenger John Kerry.

MEMRI said radical Islamist commentators monitored over the Internet this past weekend also interpreted the key passage of bin Laden's diatribe to mean that any U.S. state that votes to elect Bush on Tuesday will be considered an "enemy" and any state that votes for Kerry has "chosen to make peace with us."

I concur that Democrats are Federalist Statists that want NO power to the people. They are the Ruby Ridge killers.

Bush won Florida in 2000. Democrats wanted to recount and recount until they got the result they wanted.

This critic shows his silver spooned bigotry by suggesting a house mom is not a worthy profession. My wife will stay home with my children and I'm proud of it. Far more proud of that than the the cop outs who have created a generation of latchkey kids because they want their dream home.

Ten reasons to vote for John Kerry:

1. Osama Bin Laden wants you to do it.
2. Saddam Hussein wants you to do it.
3. Yasser Arafat wants you to do it.
4. Kim Jong-Il wants you to do it.
5. Ayatollah Khamenei wants you to do it.
6. Kofi Annan wants you to do it.
7. Fidel Castro wants you to do it.
8. Mullah Omar wants you to do it.
9. Jacques Chirac wants you to do it.
10. The Guardian (the newspaper, not the tv show) wants you to do it.

This is the September 11 presidential election. John Kerry is the September 10 candidate. In short, the proper American view should surely be ‘anyone but Kerry‘.

If Mr Kerry wins, America will have made a fateful choice. It would be hailed with jubilation as a great victory by all the enemies of the west, at home and abroad.

It would be a terrible blow for those brave Iraqis struggling towards a free society. And it would be a signal to Korea, to Iran -- racing to arm itself with nuclear weapons that would pose a mortal threat to the west -- and every other rogue state with evil intent that it’s once again business as usual.

Tomorrow, American voters decide. They hold in their hands no less than the fate of the entire free world.

Who does the Guardian tv show back, I wonder?


Probably goes for the trial lawyer who reaches out to dead kids...

There was a funny michael moore skit on Dead Ringers the other night. Dead Ringers audio. Audio quality is a little on the poor side. I would post the video but yahoo doesn't accept wmv.

"I have never come across a candidate who is so reviled."

What about John W. Howard? Like Bush, he is someone who has consistently failed to make any sympathetic noises towards the left's sacred cow of the week.
