Meanwhile the speech had no effect on his performance numbers:
Just one week ago, President Bush’s job approval stood at a previous low of 44%—but it has now slipped another point to 43%, despite a speech to the nation intended to build support for the Administration and the ongoing Iraq War effort. The Zogby America survey includes calls made both before and after the President’s address, and the results show no discernible “bump” in his job approval, with voter approval of his job performance at 45% in the final day of polling.

So much for the “Promotion of a Culture of Life” as 37 Republican Senators voted for testing of pesticides on fetuses. The 100% all-star Republican lineup voted against the Amendment (Boxer Amdt. No. 1023 ) S.Amdt. 1023 to H.R. 2361 (Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2006 ) which would allow the EPA "to accept data from human tests on children, pregnant women, newborns, infants and fetuses...Even newborns of 'uncertain viability' could be tested." Included in the “NAY” votes was pro-lifers Rick “man on dog” Santorum and Bill “videotape diagnosis” Frist.

Operation Yellow Elephant, a project which is designed to enlist Young / College Republicans who support the war in
The objective of OPERATION YELLOW ELEPHANT is to recruit College Republicans and Young Republicans to serve as infantry. They demanded this war and now viciously support it. It's only right that they also experience it.
Like our volunteer military recruiting goals, Operation Yellow Elephant is also coming up short. Although the problem is evidently these Republicans have “injuries” which prevent them from enlisting in the military. However, that doesn’t stop asking the Young Republicans over at

Evidently anyone who “attacks” another person can be linked to 9/11. The lies about how “we will fight them” is the new scare tactic. Bush:
Our military reports that we have killed or captured hundreds of foreign fighters in Iraq who have come from Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Egypt, Sudan, Yemen, Libya and other nations.
Where is the old “you are either with us or against us” Bush… oh yeah…
I am sure there will be more to come. So sad to see him insulting the American people again with trying to create new links with the tired old lies. NOTHING about the original reasons of going to war with
Some predictions were right, most were not. He actually did make a half ass called to serve in the military, at least I think that’s what it was, I could be wrong. Overall it was a lot of nothing.Aftermath observations:

Republican Senator from Pennsylvania Rick "man on dog" Santorum blamed the geographic location of Boston, MA as the cause of the priest sex scandal within the Catholic Church. He called the culture of the area "sick" and it is to blame for "infecting" and "affecting" Catholic priests.
Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture. When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm.Somebody tell Santorum that Massachusetts has the lowest divorce rate of any state in the union. Let's only hope this "sick" "man on dog" "liberal" culture does not "infect" the rest of the our country...

John Kerry has send out an email petition to sign an open letter to fire Karl Rove.
Just hours after learning about an outrageous speech delivered by Karl Rove, President Bush's most senior advisor, I went to the Senate floor -- and I spoke from my heart. I want to share those words with you -- not as a Democrat or Republican, not as a liberal or conservative -- but as an American.
I've attached part of my speech to the end of this email. But, before you read what I said, look again at what Karl Rove said:
(P)erhaps the most important difference between conservatives and liberals can be found in the area of national security. Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers.
I hope you will join me right now in signing an open letter to the President urging him to thoroughly reject Karl Rove's purposeful attack on the patriotism of those who dare ask the tough questions that best protect American troops. Sign our open letter to President Bush now:
This isn't the first time that Karl Rove and other White House officials have sought to divide America in ways that make it harder to keep our country safe and our democracy strong. But, it should be the last. That's why I ended my speech with a call on President Bush to fire Karl Rove. It is the only way the President can make it clear that he rejects Rove's effort to distort one of the most unified and patriotic moments in American history into a cheap, divisive, political applause line.
That, of course, is what is most outrageous about Karl Rove's claim that President Bush's political opponents offered "therapy and understanding for our attackers." It isn't true. In the days after 9/11, there were no Democrats, no Republicans. We were all Americans, standing together. President Bush acknowledged that unity in a clear and compelling way at the time.
Now, Karl Rove is purposely twisting those days of unity in order to divide us for political gain. I hope you will act right now to join a growing chorus of Americans calling on the President to fire Karl Rove.
Please act right now. Sign our open letter to the President and pass it on to others. All Americans have to speak with one powerful voice in response to this outrage. I will continue speaking out and I know I can count on you to stand with me.

After Karl Rove's appauling comments, Democrats have demanded him to appologize or resign. Rove said:
"Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers. Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war. Conservatives saw what happened to us on 9/11 and said we will defeat our enemies. Liberals saw what happened to us and said we must understand our enemies. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals."Fuck this guy... and the White House defends this fat pig. Press Secretary Scott McClellan says President Bush's top political adviser was just,
"telling it like it is."Democrats respond, Reid's statement:
“I am deeply disturbed and disappointed that the Bush White House would continue to use the national tragedy of September 11th to try and divide the country. The lesson our country learned on that terrible morning is that we are strongest when we unite together, that America’s power is in its common spirit of democracy and freedom.

Edward Klein’s new book, The Truth About Hillary, has been criticized as “trash” from both the left and the right. Even Bill O’Reilly said that he will not cover it, though his reasoning is that it covers "personal stuff” like Kitty Kelly’s The Family. Klein has even back down from his disgusting rape claim which is not even worth repeating.
The book makes a claim from a single picture:
“Bill mouth-kissing a supporter. Hillary’s aides noticed that Bill seemed to grow even more reckless after his memoir, My Life, became a big bestseller. He was rolling in money—and hubris. Throwing caution to the wind, he started a torrid affair with a stunning divorcée in her early forties.”
Clendenin commented when interviews by New York Magazine:
“I was there. She kissed him on the cheek. Nothing more. Two seconds out of each other’s lives. The pictures speak for themselves. They make the point I was trying to make in the book, which is that he hasn't stopped being a philanderer. This is one of maybe a dozen people who kissed him on the cheek. It’s like being misquoted . . . I believe that the insinuation of intimacy is a misrepresentation of the photo. It misrepresents my work.”
When the publisher Sentinel, a conservative imprint of the Penguin GroupPenguin Group, was asked about the photo, a spokesperson Will Weisser replied,
“It’s not implying that the woman pictured in the photo is the one he’s having an affair with.”Side by side comparison from the discolored pixilated Drudge Report headline and the original taken by Clendenin:

"People are working."
Which contradicts all major news about jobs in which: General Motors will cut 25,000 manufacturing jobs, Win-Dixie will cut 22,000 jobs and close 326 stores in and cease operation in four states, and Ford Motor will cut 2,700 white color jobs.
Sure Mr. Bush, some “people are working” but nearly 50,000 people have or soon will lose their jobs. He went on to say:
"The state of our economy is strong… Americans from all walks of life have got good reason to be confident about the future.
Then does admit:
“I understand parts of our country are still struggling. I know some workers are concerned about jobs going overseas. I know some are concerned about gaining the skills necessary to compete in the global market that we live in. I know that families are worried about health care and retirement and I know moms and dads are worried about their children finding good jobs. So even though the numbers are good, there's still worries out there in the country. And these are the challenges of a rapidly changing economy. And we've got the responsibility in government to take the side of our working families."Funny coming from a man whose official stance on outsourcing is that it’s a “Good Thing.” Instead of admitting there is a major problem when Winn-Dixie us cutting lower paying service jobs, and we really must deal with it, he goes with the old everything is “OK.”
2 + 2 = 5.

The poll says 70 percent of French citizens feel the USA is not a loyal ally, and 56 percent of Americans believe France is not a reliable friend. We are among that 56 percent and are boycotting French goods and services, which is part of the reason the French don't like us. But we'll remember, we'll lift the boycott if French officials can point to one thing they're doing to help the USA in the war on terror. So far they can't, which might be ridiculous. C'est la vie.One thing? Here's CENTCOM (US Central Command) on France's many contributions to the war on terror:
French commitment to OEF has been strong and resolute since the beginning of the operation.Unless Afghanistan isn't part of the war on terror.

After a full day of the original "voice vote" in the US Senate, some Republicans and the only Democrat have joined the majority in co-sponsoring the anti-lynching resolution. Yet still, 15 Republicans have refused to co-sponsor the resolution. What is even more outrageous is Republican Bill Frist vetoed a “roll call” vote, in which each Senator would be recorded in how they voted towards the resolution. This was against the original intentions of Mary Landrieu (D-LA) who wanted an official “roll call” vote. From AmericaBlog:
What’s even more disgusting are the comments by Republican Senator Lamar Alexander who’s staff was told to reply for the reason in not sponsoring the anti-lynching resolution because she already supported "black history month":
She was very polite and read a prepared statement. It started off with a little misdirection: assuring me that he did not oppose the legislation, and that it passed unanimously, and that he didn't co-sponsor "because" he had already co-sponsored legislation celebrating black history month, and that he intended to bring that one up again.

Usually Ford automobile owners are quite happy people. I tend to think of guys hauling around loads of wood (hmmm?) in their F-250s, a soccer mom with mini van, or a gas guzzling SUV. However, that’s not what the American Family Association has to say. According to their site,
If one looks for the company which has done the most to affirm and promote the homosexual lifestyle, he would be hard-pressed to find a company which has done more than Ford Motor Company. While this is hardly known to the general population, it is well known by numerous homosexual organizations.The conservative faction also sited the Ford Motor Company and its subsidiary brand names such as: Volvo, Mazda, Land Rover and others as giving financial contributions to organizations such as GLAAD, 2004 Motor City Pride Weekend, as well as sexually oriented ads.
I guess I haven’t “driven a Ford lately.” Could GMC be next?

Failing New Jersey Republican gubernatorial candidate stands in front of an enthusiastic crowed, the problem is that crowed was originally in a photo with Howard Dean in 2004. I guess there were no pictures of enthusiastic, happy, or even presentable Republicans available so they had to Photoshop one.
Update: Now the media has got ahold of this one

Sen. Kay O'Connor said yesterday that she is seeking the Republican (WOW, big suprise there) nomination for secretary of state next year. O'Connor, 63, has served in the Legislature since 1993.
In 2001, O'Connor received national attention for her remarks about the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified in 1920, which gave women the right to vote.
"I think the 19th Amendment, while it's not an evil in and of itself, is a symptom of something I don't approve of," she said at the time. "The 19th Amendment is around because men weren't doing their jobs, and I think that's sad. I believe the man should be the head of the family. The woman should be the heart of the family."http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2002296142_vote02.html
Now tell me these people don't hate our country...

I was listening to Mike Malloy tonight on Air America Radio, and he came up with the best idea for the Bush administration's stance on stem cell research: (paraphrasing)
Why doesn't the two Bush daughters and the two Cheney daughters donate their wombs to these embryos, you could have 80 snowflakes saved between them...It's funny because its true.

In an upcoming interview with Rolling Stone, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) re-asserts his reputation as an outspoken critic of the his political rivals.
...Here is an excerpt:
RS: You've called Bush a loser.Do you think they want to start talking about the "I" word already?

Geez, a press conference, and then answering questions from the press in the oval office, are those approval numbers lacking... Anyways, no big surprise here to any sane person, Bush commented on whether former deputy FBI Director Mark Felt provided a valuable public service or acted improperly. Bush replied,
"It's hard for me to judge."Yeah, Nixon was a great guy, I mean, those Democrats in the Watergate were just pre W11 thinking...

A group calling itself the Ohio Restoration Project has big plans for
The Stewardship of our Citizenship is crucial to this hour. The Sacred Trust of Freedom has been purchased with a purpose. From America’s beginning, the Mayflower Compact openly declares that our forefathers were birthing this nation for “the advancement of the Christian faith.” All 50 of our state constitutions acknowledge and give honor to the Lord. The declaration of Independence declares that we are "endowed by our Creator, with certain inalienable rights." With only 5% of the world's population, God has blessed the United States with nearly 40% of the world's wealth. Now more than ever, we are convinced that God has blessed this nation with resources to share the light of God's Word with a world lost in darkness. America has had a mission to share a living Savior with a dying world.
With great Republicans such as "CoinGate" and 2006 gubernatorial candidate Ken Blackwell, Tony Perkins, and Phil Burress, I am sure it will be a total success. This is so sick one would think it to be satire:
Teaching creation in our public schools has become a federal lawsuit.
Can you say please revoke these churches 501 tax exempt status…
