W Getting Left Behind Like An Evangelical Novel Franchise Peter Cohan, a Wall Street strategist, is casting his lot for John Kerry this election believing the Democratic nominee will be better for the economy than W. Jeez, with a record deficit, an evaporated surplus and a tremendous loss of jobs who wouldn't stand behind our economy's past four years?

"No Chance That This Situation Will Get Better." The United States' equilivant of "Dude, I TOTALLY have black friends!" moderate King Abdullah of Jordan has come out and expressed his "profound pessimism" at the upcoming elections in Iraq.

They Aren't Eager To Get Their Limbs Blown Off By IEDs? "Fewer than two-thirds of the former soldiers being reactivated for duty in Iraq and elsewhere have reported on time, prompting the Army to threaten some with punishment for desertion. Of the 1,662 ready reservists ordered to report to Fort Jackson, S.C., by Sept. 22, only 1,038 had done so, the Army said Monday. About 500 of those who failed to report have requested exemptions on health or personal grounds."

Worst Political Ads Ever. EVER.It's hard to believe that these ads are not parody. Even more insane than the "latte-drinking, body-piercing freak show" anti-Howard Dean ads from the Club For Growth, are the ads attacking Rep. Marilyn Musgrave from Colorado Families First which portray Musgrave as stealing a watch from a corpse in a funeral home and literally picking the pocket of a US soldier (while fighting in combat!) You can view the ads here.
