Dennis Hasert is a putz.  Mr. Speaker clearly assess blame on the previous administration for lack of action on terrorist threats.

"The (9/11 commission) report covers eight years of the Clinton administration and eight months of the Bush administration," Mr. Hastert said, insisting at the same time that he did not want to see the report turned into a "political football" during an election year.

Now, doesn't he just act like he lost the coin toss and kicked off for the 'football' game?   Putz.

Two points of internet interest (at least I think):

Fundrace is a completely voyueristic tool (he he...I said 'tool')to see who has contributed to political campaigns - and how much they have given. I am not sure of it's accuracy - as I had given more than $150 to Howard Dean. And they are at least a month behind in posting results. You can also search by zip code to see where your neighborhood lies. And there are detailed maps of some cities and their contribution trends. On another note: of all the people listed w/my last name - 83.3% gave to democratic candidates! YAY!

Outfoxed is available on DVD and VHS (VHS?? Isn't tape dead?)for less than $10. It will not have theatrical distribution ala Michael Moore's films - but still proves to be very interesting. ....that is, IF you can stomach it.

VP Selection

So Edwards it is. I can live with that. Some say that Edwards was the safe choice, but I think Gephardt would have been the safe, if not fatal, selection.

Bill Frist was prattling on and on about how Edwards has no foreign relations and national security experience. I won't argue that point - but except for Saudis, what experience did our dickhead president have as Governor of Texas? What experience does a doctor turned senator from Tennessee have? Just SHUT THE FUCK UP already!

NPR had someone going on about how both Kerry and Edwards are millionaires and they aren't that far from where the GOP candidates are - monetarily or ideologically. Ok. Then how does the GOP make the argument on the Kerry/Edwards being liberal?

I'm still a tad bit scared. I cannot warm up to Kerry. Edwards might help a little. Of course I will vote democratic in Nov 2004. But will enough others do the same?
