Chris Matthews Puts Kerry Flap in Context

Chris Matthews reads from the transcript of Kerry's statement and adds context to the Kerry "end up in Iraq" brouhaha. It's clear that the statement is about Bush. Not the troops. He does not only a better job than the rest of the media explaining it, but better than Kerry himself. Matthews is no liberal, and I wasn't a fan, but am finding him to be pretty fair minded lately.

He also defended Michael J. Fox when Limbaugh mocked him. And senatorial candidate Harold Ford when the RNC ran those subtly racist ads in Tennessee. I could change my mind about him.

Senator John Kerry Responds re: Remarks Made to Students - Part 1

Did you know that if you're a democrat, sticking your foot far enough into your mouth can cause your testicles to descend. Where was this John Kerry two years ago when he was running for president? Where was he when he was swift-boated two years ago? Too little, too late.

The Evolution of Beauty

Unfortunately beauty is not the only thing in our culture that is illusory. Freedom, the basic principles of our system of justice and civl rights, freedom of expression, and I'm beginning to think even Idol is rigged. Not that these things don't exist. But often what people mistake for the real thing is an illusion.

Fight the powers....

Revolutionary QOTD: October 19, 2006

....On this first full day that the Military Commissions Act is in force, we now face what our ancestors faced, at other times of exaggerated crisis and melodramatic fear-mongering:

A government more dangerous to our liberty, than is the enemy it claims to protect us from.

-Keith Olberman in a special comment yesterday (see video below) on the Military Commissions Act. The death of Habeas Corpus and our most essential protection of our liberties as Americans. This is the greatest casualty of terrorism. Not one inflicted upon us by terrorists, but one we've given them out of our own fear. And this is perhaps the most important reason that makes voting in this coming election is absolutely essential.

See you in Gitmo.
