Porkchop Sandwiches!

Kerry Smear Watch When he wasn't hanging around with Church of Satan founder/Ming the Merciless Anton LaVey or Hanoi Jane, John Kerry was a wicked big baby killer. At least that's the story according to the former assistant secretary of defense and Fletcher School of Diplomacy professor, W. Scott Thompson, who when referencing his conversations with a now deceased man (reliable source there) said, The fabled and distinguished chief of naval operations, Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, told me— 30 years ago when he was still CNO that during his own command of U.S. naval forces in Vietnam, just prior to his anointment as CNO, young Kerry had created great problems for him and the other top brass, by killing so many non-combatant civilians and going after other non-military targets. ‘We had virtually to straitjacket him to keep him under control, the admiral said." What a horribly ironic twist; the Republican camp is backing a draft dodger and shouting "baby killer!" at the Democratic Vietnam Vet. I need a scorecard.

When "Freedom" and "Privacy" Will Become Kitchy Period-Slang Phrases From The Early 21st Century A nice long piece from the Boston Pheonix detailing the major threats to freedom in the United States under cat-phobic John Ashcroft. "Some people believe themselves insulated from all this because Ashcroft's extreme measures have been targeted more heavily at foreigners and citizens of recent foreign origin— people with names like Yaser, Iyman, and Ali, whom native-born citizens with native-born parents could easily dismiss as being "them" rather than 'us.'"
