Kos sums up some of the various Keep In The Vote efforts of Republicans in West Virginia, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Alabama. Remember, one of the big differences between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats want more people to vote, and Republicans want less people to vote. These are the same guys who say they want […]

In response to Rudolph Guiliani’s appearance on Meet the Press today, during which he basically said that no one is allowed to criticize any of President Bush’s decisions during this “war,” there’s this response: To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right […]

Way off course

We’re going in a bad direction here, folks: And now we have local GOP Gauleiters in Florida soliciting oaths of allegiance not to the flag, not to the country, not to the constitution, but to the person of the leader — albeit still an elected one, at least for now. One people, one country, one […]

Kos points out just why you should go and vote for Kerry even if you’re in a state that’s either far into the Blue side of things or far into the Red: There are two battles being fought Tuesday. The battle for the electoral vote — which will decide the next president, and the battle […]

Just in time for the election, it’s the announcement that Osama bin Laden has been captured!!! Oh, wait, actually it’s just another videotape with Osama ranting about things. Aren’t you scared now?

Good advice from always wise Teresa Nielsen Hayden during the last days of this grueling election season: 1. Be of good cheer. If that means not watching the news, don’t watch it. 2. Polls. Don’t trust them. Spread the word. They tell us it’s closer than it is because it exhausts us. 3. Draft. If […]

It’s simple really. If you’re a U.S. citizen, you can go down to your local polling place on November 2nd and vote, or you can sit it out and come up with excuses about how you’re too busy or your vote doesn’t matter. You can tell yourself that you’re making some sort of protest by […]

Maybe this makes up for some of the homophobic and misogynistic crap that’s come out of Eminem’s mouth over the past few years. He’s got a new song and video out called “Mosh,” in which he calls for everyone to come together and vote Bush out of office. One of my favorite bits of lyric […]

So now Gallup comes up with still another Bush over Kerry poll (this time for Florida) which is way off from virtually every other recent poll taken in the state. Why? Once again, it’s that now infamous screwed up Gallup methodology. Why bother? Well, if you’re not one to instantly dismiss all conspiracy theories, you […]

“Bush talks and thinks like Milosevic. He will lose, but the most disheartening thing is the prospect of his religio-nationalist reality-deniers clinging fiercely to the sacred glory of their Lost Cause for the next hundred years. We live under the Confederacy. We’re a podunk bunch of swaggering pious hicks.” — Bruce Sterling [via William Gibson’s […]
