Will you be the difference? Or just pee on the bathroom floor again?

Bush recess-appointed William Pryor to the 11th Circuit, and so, a recap: Roe v. Wade an “abomination,” indicted Barnes & Noble for selling art books, became a lawyer to fight the ACLU, supported Alabama tying prisoners to “hitching posts,” against separation of church & state, for executing the retarded, homosexuality = necrophilia and paedophilia. Bush says D filibuster of Pryor is “inconsistent with the Senate’s constitutional responsibility,” as opposed to Pryor’s statement, “God has chosen, through his son Jesus Christ, this time and this place for all Christians ... to save our country and save our courts.” Here’s a link I sent on him last June. This is a test of Kerry, and one I suspect he’ll fail. Will he say anything, and what? Thing is, if Kerry winds up president, he’ll be facing a Republican Congress with very few scruples about undoing elections which will do its damndest not to let him govern, and I’m looking for any sign he’ll fight back.

The wrong member of the Bush family was put to sleep yesterday.

Ireland is passing a bill to make it illegal for police to tell the press about violations of the cease-fire by paramilitary groups and others in Northern Ireland. By coincidence, the IRA just kidnapped a dissident republican.

In a classic instance of getting paid to solve a problem you created, the GM food industry wants to solve the problem of contamination of organic and other non-GM crops by GM seeds by reviving an older evil idea, the sterile GM seed, which would force farmers to buy new seed every single year.

According to The Times, the CIA just removed its senior officer in Baghdad for incompetence.

Sexy urinals.”

The Nigerian state of Kano, run by idiot Muslims, refuses to join a world polio campaign, saying it is a Western plot to make them infertile and infect them with AIDS. The infertile thing doesn’t sound like such a bad idea, really.

Schwarzenegger calls gay marriage “an imminent risk to civil order.” He doesn’t say how, but presumably it’s worse than the stuff he gets up to.

Doonesbury in Monday & Tuesday’s strips will offer a $10,000 reward for info on Bush’s Nat Guard service.

Few scruples, and did I mention no shame? Here’s part of an email the Bush campaign sent my cat:
From: "Georgewbush.com"
To: "Turquoise the cat"

It is the year 2000. In the presidential campaign...

New Mexico hinges on 366 votes, Florida on only 537 votes. Iowa is won by 4144 votes, Wisconsin by 5708 votes. Oregon is decided by 6765 votes, New Hampshire by 7211 votes.

In the closest presidential election in modern history, 24,731 people in a nation of 280 million make the difference for 59 electoral votes. An incredible statistic when you consider just 4 electoral votes meant the difference between a President Bush and a President Gore.

The year is 2004. Another presidential campaign is here...

Will you be one of the people who makes a difference this time?
