Not far 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 […]

An actual reason to listen to Eminem

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 […]

Gallup is still at it

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 […]

Not a joke

“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 […]

A joke

How many Bush administration officials does it take to change a light bulb? None. There’s nothing wrong with that light bulb. There is no need to change anything. We made the right decision and nothing has happened to change our minds. People who criticize this light bulb now, just because it doesn’t work anymore, supported […]

Hunter S. Thompson on Bush

In a piece written for Rolling Stone, Hunter tells it like it is. I watch three or four frantic network-news bulletins about Iraq every day, and it is all just fraudulent Pentagon propaganda, the absolute opposite of what it says: u.s. transfers sovereignty to iraqi interim “government.” Hot damn! Iraq is finally Free, and just […]

Boing Boing endorses Kerry for President

One of my favorite weblogs, Boing Boing, has made its pick for President: It may seem odd for a scrapbook to endorse a presidential candidate. But Mark, Cory, Pesco, John and I — the people who keep this scrapbook alive — share the conviction that John Kerry is the candidate best suited to lead America […]

Bush not exactly resonating with the conservative base

October 26th, 2004 – 8:42 pm
Tagged as: Uncategorized

From one of the editorials in the November 8 issue of The American Conservative, which, as you might guess from the name, is a pretty right-wing publication: It is, instead, an election about the presidency of George W. Bush. To the surprise of virtually everyone, Bush has turned into an important president, and in many […]

Some good news

It seems that as we get down to a mere 10 days before the election, Bush’s internal poll numbers aren’t looking so good.
