    More Republican Hypocricy . . .

    After nearly three weeks of denying that they were responsible for a memorandum that urged exploiting Terri Schiavo's death for political gain, and even trying to claim the Democrats wrote it to sabatoge them, the Republicans FINALLY admit that they wrote it.

    • main man is a complete idiot in "His own words"

      Seems to many in the free world he is one of those "children that were, left behind."

      Here's another beauty:


      "At the time I wanted to fight, yes, and I was willing to train for what-ever experience came my way. I actually tried for what's called a 'palace alert' program from my guard program to transfer on a temporary basis for assignments, and I was too junior to get the assignments."

      -About his joining the Air National Guard, The Boston Globe, March 28, 1999

      REALITY CHECK: According to David Corn's book. The Lies of George W. Bush, "When Bush entered the Guard, he had to say on his application papers whether he was willing to volunteer for overseas duty. He checked the box that read 'do not volunteer."

      "Security is the essential roadblock to achieving the road to peace."

      -Washington D.C., July 25, 2003

      "I think it's very important for world leaders to understand that when a new administration comes in, the new administration will be running the foreign policy."

      -Interview with USA Today, January, 12, 2001

      "Redefining the role of the United States from enablers to keep the peace to enablers to keep the peace from peacekeepers is going to be an assignment."

      -Interview with The New York Times, January 14 2001

      "First, we would not accept a treaty that would not have been ratified, nor a treaty that I thought made sense for the country."

      -On the Kyoto accord, in an interview with The Washington Post, April 24, 2001

      To be continued for DIB's pleasure.

    • Draft Young Republicans.

    • Republican or Democrat, not a lot of guys have the stones to engage the enemy at close range. Perhaps you don't think Kerry bled enough to earn 3 Purple Hearts, but the record shows he requested duty in Vietnam, he sought combat, he risked his own life to save the lives of his comrades in arms, and served honorably. The record also shows that Republicans have lied repeatedly about his service record. They have also lied repeatedly about the strings the Bush family pulled to keep W. stateside.

      If you disagreed with Kerry's politics and didn't want to vote for him, fine. If you think the personal courage of all the chicken hawks in this Administration is inspiring, then I guess you're the one who has to live with that sort of mental illness. But I would prefer it if Republicans, who mouth so many words about honoring our troops, wouldn't make their hypocrisy so naked when it comes to Kerry's distinguished service record.

    • I love folks like you--

      watching your guys outvoted regularly by my guy, your only response: "Look how stupid (... whatever) my guy is," oblivious to the reality that the dumber you prove to yourself my guy is, the more stupid multiplied by a geometric factor your guys are shown to be.

      I can visualize you on your old Huffy, low tires on wobbly rims, paint peeling, seat springs protruding, yelling to the crowd as Lance Armstrong speeds past you: "See, he can't ride a bicycle."

      Holding onto 43 pseudonymns to give the impression you are not lonely.

      Keep it up, you are a riot.

      Or would that be a rut(?)


    • how about this one:

      "I report for duty"


      I even thought he was a real man till I heard the facts, he spent all of 2 months "serving" his country, with a camera, and got 3 purple hearts (never heard of anyone doing this by the way), and out he went back to the good old US to piss on his fellow comrade in arms, unreal....

    • WHOOPS........

      "our SAT scores have improves since I've been governor. You need to get your researchers to do a better job."
      -To Steve Forbes, Republican primary presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire, January 26, 2000

      REALITY CHECK: In 1994, Bush's first year in office as governor of Texas, the mean SAT 1 score in Texas among "college-bound seniors was 990, while the national average was 1003. In 1999, the national average had increased by 13, to 1016. So relative to the rest of the country, Texas's SAT scores actually decreased.

      "There's an old saying in Tennessee-I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee-that says, fool me once,shame on-shame on you. Fool me-you can't get fooled again."
