Farewell Mustachioed, Hindustani Jesse James

At Least They Were Smart Enough To Not Wear Their "Don't Kick Our Fucking Asses" T-Shirts Three Oregon schoolteachers were removed from a speech by George Bush in Medford and threatened with arrest for wearing t-shirts that said "Protect Our Civil Liberties." According to the Bend Bugle, "When Vice President Dick Cheney visited Eugene, Oregon on Sept. 17, a 54-Year old woman named Perry Patterson was charged with criminal trespass for blurting the word "No" when Cheney said that George W. Bush has made the world safer."

Do The John McCain!
It's the latest dance craze that's sweeping right-wingers of conscience! First you take a logical step to Kerry, then you make a gigantic spastic jerk back towards Bush, despite yourself! The latest to join this dance craze is Pat Buchanan, who not long after publicly coming out for Kerry has just come out in The American Conservative for Bush. Witness the display of inner-conflict as Buchanan lays Iraq and the deficit at Bush's feet (who he claims to be seduced with "the Arian heresy of America," neo-conservatism) but still stands against Kerry for short list of petty and irrational complaints ("He protested the war! He would make Hillary Clinton a Supreme Court judge!"). We'll at least I won't have the mind-fuck of being on Pat Buchanan's side anymore...

Post-War Planning Non-Existent
So terrible it requires no sarcastic commentary. "Near the end of his presentation, an Army lieutenant colonel who was giving a briefing showed a slide describing the Pentagon's plans for rebuilding Iraq after the war, known in the planners' parlance as Phase 4-C. He was uncomfortable with his material - and for good reason. The slide said: 'To Be Provided.'"

That's Cool, Smoking Was Too Safe Anyways "A bill that's awaiting President George W. Bush's signature would drop requirements for imported tobacco to be inspected for chemicals and pesticides banned in the United States but allowed elsewhere. In other words, government officials would no longer be required to look for substances such as DDT in imported leaf."

Bullshit Propaganda II: This Time It's Personal
Vladamir Putin is doing his part for the Big Lie: terrorists don't want Bush to win the election. The Russian JV dictator told the press that "I consider the activities of terrorists in Iraq are not as much aimed at coalition forces but more personally against President Bush." I'm sure it's just one big street beef.
