Quote of the Day

"It's easy to complain about the press -- I've been doing it for a good part of my career. It's part of what goes with a free society. What I do is try to focus upon those elements of the press that I think do an effective job and try to be accurate in their portrayal of events. For example, I end up spending a lot of my time watching Fox News, because they're more accurate in my experience, in those events that I'm personally involved in, than many of the other outlets" [emphasis mine] --Vice President Dick Cheney

Five words for you: Out of Touch with Reality
Abstinence makes the Heart grow fonder

I do apologize with my lack of postings this week, my boss and I are trying to close a $22.5 Billion deal so to speak.

Things are looking pretty good for our clients and what we wanted. I would like to say it is all my doing but I think it is another sign that the economy is picking up, at least here.

Which means that if he wants to win, Kerry can't rest on Bush's failures, he has to talk explicitly what he will do differently beyond a line by line program list, ala Gore. Talk about your vision for America. Clark had one, Dean had one, Clinton had one, Bush believe it or not, has one.

I hate to sound like a broken record but Kerry needs to stop talking about Vietnam and how bad Bush is, and starting talking about what will happen after January 20, 2005 if he were to win.

Oh and if you are wondering about the title, there was a big march on Sunday entitled "The March for Women's Lives" which was a linking of arms of liberal and/or feminist organizations (1M+ purportedly). Meanwhile, pro-lifer and "abstinence-only" education supporter/Bush-lackey Karen Hughes indirectly compared these pro-choice warriors to Al-Qaida. That's why.

Taking it

Kerry's team has decided to let Bush blow $50-60 Million these past two months against them in TV ads while camp Kerry mostly travels around quietly raising money ($50M or so).

The ads Johnny's put out are alright, but not nearly as inspiring as his primary ads that were done Pre-Shrum muscle flex (he pushed out the guy that did those ads). Why do campaigns keep hiring this idiot. If I hear one more rich-ass white man talking about the people and the special interests who he trains, I will vomit.

Still, although Kerry is now seen in a less positive light than February, it was inevitable that Bush et al would take him down some notches and make him look wishy-washy, because he is.

But this brings me to the site of the day

John Kerry Is A Douche Bag But I'm Voting For Him This is the ultimate ABB-BKOK (Anybody But Bush, But Kerry's OK) not a glowing endorsement but I think Kerry will be thousands of times better than Bush.

I also think, that Kerry showed some real guts on the Environment, specifically CAFE standards. (We will see if UAW/Michigan will get make him flop on that too).

I just wish he would stop sending me e-mail messages asking for money. I know he needs it but I am going to give my tiny sum when he really needs it-- the fall. That way, he will get matching funds for my contribution too.
