The death and damage from Ivan continues to rise. WND
As I mentioned yesterday Imus had an interview with The Talented Mr. Kerry (just like Mr. Ripley he morphs to fit in no matter what) . Imus is a Kerry supporter but seemed nothing but frustrated! From Frontpagemag's War Blog:
Who are our real friends? Well, probably those who aren't advocating a, "strategic alliance between the EU and China to counter American power." Thanks old Europe - thank goodness we spent billions protecting you last century! After we get this terrorism thing knocked down we'll pull the knife out of our back! - Hey Cox and Forkum, how about a cartoon with Lady Liberty with a knife in her back (if they didn't already do one.) BTW, that story is mainly about an EU rapid reaction force - read it - considering the cost, age of their soldiers (who are mostly union by the way - a month off in the summer and all!) , and the fact that they don't have the airlift it makes you wonder why. But remember, as I have warned in the past, as their economy continues to falter they become a danger to us and themselves.
Here’s the entire interview. The Imus-breaking moment might be in this exchange:
KERRY: I mean, what you ought to be doing and what everybody in America ought to be doing today is not asking me; they ought to be asking the president, What is your plan? What's your plan, Mr. President, to stop these kids from being killed? What's your plan, Mr. President, to get the other countries in there? What's your plan to have 90 percent of the casualties and 90 percent of the cost being carried by America?
IMUS: We're asking you because you want to be president.
Er, yes. Thursday, September 16, 2004
Stem Cell - amazingly they are repairing heart disease and growing arteries using peoples own stem cells. As Slings and Arrows point out, "Note: No unborn babies were harmed in the process."
Great rundown of Kerry campaign's Leviathan Syndrome - along with some campaign slogans at PoliPundit. My fav's "I will keep our enemies guessing, too." and these two go together
- "I have three words for George Bush--bring it on."
- "I have five more words for George Bush--call off your on-bringers."
Gen. Richard A. Cody, the Army's vice chief of staff, said that state National Guard officials have known about the deployments for some time and that all units preparing to go for the third rotation into Iraq have been notified. "The mobilization is phased, based on when they have to be there," Cody saidBut the best part is the Kerry supporters quoting the Group Boston:
A senior aide to Murtha, who spoke on condition of anonymity yesterday, cautioned that a new call-up was not a certainty, saying enough reservists may still be mobilized by November to avoid one.
"To quote an old Boston line, it's more than a feeling, but less than a confirmed Pentagon plan," the senior aide said, referring to a song from the rock group.
But they fail to note the rest of the lyrics:
"It's more than a feeling, when I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling) I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)."Obviously they are dreaming!
Now for something really important (kidding of course) Macaulay Culkin busted for pot, pills...
