E-Voting Lies From Bush Team

E-Voting Lies From Bush Team:
I was just listening to CNN political coverage, and a lawyer who’s a Bush supporter flat-out lied about electronic voting machines, claiming all the questions have been satisfactorily answered about the machines’ trustworthiness and reliability. Anyone who knows anything about this subject knows that his statements were absolutely false.

Nothing surprises me anymore, but the brazenness of this guy’s lies was really something.

By the way, here’s an easy way to find your voting site. Just plug in your street address and zip code.

Redskins Lose!

Redskins Lose!:

In every Presidential election-year since 1936, if the Washington Redskins lost their last game before the election, the incumbent lost as well. In today’s game, the Packers beat Washington 28 – 14. A late rally by the Redskins in the 4th Quarter couldn’t save them. This is the strongest spurious evidence yet that Kerry’s going to win on Tuesday.


yep, and the viking’s and their bush luvin mike tice got their butts handed to them on a platter. giants 43 vikings 13. support the troops, support john kerry
