IF IT WEREN’T FOR THE HOPE THING THIS COULD BE THE BEST DAY EVER.

Bob Boone and Jim Bowden are gone. Here’s hoping Reds management get’s the best people, not the most loyal people, and that Gammons turns out to be on crack with all his talk of a firesale.
Would have gotten to this earlier but I was at the game today.

THE MODERATE DEMS ARE WORRIED

A group of centrist Democrats who helped elect Bill Clinton to the White House warned on Monday that the Democratic Party will lose the 2004 presidential election unless it can win over suburban voters who feel the party has become too liberal.

Dead at 100.

BERKELEY “SCIENCE”

If you were going to do a psychological study of what makes Conservatives conservative why in the world would you want it to take place at UC Berkeley?

CLINTON’S THOUGHTS ON THE 16-WORD DUSTUP

‘Everybody makes mistakes’

FOR THOSE COMPLAINING ABOUT “ASSASINATING” A FOREIGN LEADER’S SONS

Just a reminder, if we were really targeting Uday and Qusay simply because they were Saddam’s sons then there are 3 other kids we could go after. We were targeting them because they were high-ranking government officials, thus the “Now other nations can kill the Bush daughters” complaint I’ve been hearing doesn’t hold up. They’re college students.

THANK YOU FOR COMING, I’LL SEE YOU IN HELL…

They’re dead.

ISN’T IT IRONIC?

I think it is anyway. Admittedly though my judgement’s been off ever since that Alanis Morissette song.
But anyway, in their new commercial in which they lambast Bush for misleading the country the Democrats mislead us themselves. Dowdifying the quote and leaving out the “The British government has learned that” portion of the infamous 16 words they show Bush saying matter-of-factly “Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.” (A statement by the way that hasn’t been proved false.) I think that qualifies as ironic.
Also, anyone find it odd that they use “evil” Fox News’ feed of the speech?

AND I QUOTE

Before the start of the war.

You are about to make history…
We’re invading not to conquer and subjugate the people. We’re invading to evict a dictator, and we’re invading to protect women and children – our families – back home. Remember who you are because these are going to be the most memorable days of your lives.
–Lt. Colonel B.P. McCoy (via National Geographic Explorer)

BLAIR HIGHLIGHTS

“If we are wrong, we will have destroyed a threat that at its least is responsible for inhuman carnage and suffering. That is something I am confident history will forgive,” he said. “But if our critics are wrong … and we do not act, then we will have hesitated in the face of this menace when we should have given leadership. That is something history will not forgive.”

“there is no more dangerous theory in international politics than that we need to balance the power of America with other competitive powers.”
