To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

"Roosevelt in the Kansas City Star", 149
May 7, 1918


Do you libs even realize that when Roosevelt said that, HE WASN'T PRESIDENT? That he was in a campaign against the sitting president. SO farking of course he says he can say bad things about the President. You could expect Kerry to say the exact same thing about Bush in 2004. All candidates do. Shesshh.

What the deal with color and ads in MAD?

/back in my day we didn't have things like moveable type.


I wholly agree. The first time I ever saw an ad for a video game in Mad, I honestly wondered if it was a joke or not. Reading the subtext, sadly, I realized that it wasn't.

I remember when MAD went to an ad format. I sat there reading one of the ads not realizing they had switched and was there for twenty minutes before finally realizing it wasn't a joke. I threw that magazine in the trash and haven't looked at MAD since.

That's kinda the problem the Democrats had in the last election. Merely depicting yourself as not being the other guy without positing any original ideas isn't much of a winning strategy. Sure, you can blame your opponent for causing problems, but what would you do to fix them?

So how exactly was it Kerry's fault that there is no quick and/or easy fix for our current situation in Iraq?

SineSwiper:

A Republican National Committee official said the former first lady was "part of today's angry and adrift Democrat Party,"

Angry? Why would we be angry? We have a president that believes in imaginary WMD and an overly optimistic plan to rebuild an entire war-torn nation (which could take up to 12 years, according to Rumsfeld), while a terrorist organization (that our leader isn't bothering to look for any more) is affecting moral across the globe with attacks on the US, India, Iraq, Spain, and most recently in London.

And that's just the president. Our legislative branch is paranoid of homosexuals getting (legally) married, braindead vegetables being youthanized, and non-existant flag burning in the US (psst...it happens in other countries, not here), while it biatches and whines about a few extremist judges not getting passed into the ranks (even though the 100 or so where already let through) and thinks driving our economy and budget into the toilet (for future generations to blame the Democrats on) is a great idea.

Angry? Why the fark would Democrats be farking angry?!?

Nothing. It's a knee-jerk reaction that Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Mann Coulter have trained them to do. They hear the word Clinton, and they spit. My favorite part of the whole "Make America Hate Clinton" campaign was the finale. When the Bushes moved in after the Clintons moved out, the White House "leaked" rumors about how the Clintons had allegedly vandalized the White House before they left. Hannity was going on and on about how he heard that they had left feces on desks and whatnot.

All the while, the White House said nothing, and let the Republican Mouthpieces do their work.

There are still people who believe it, despite the fact that it was COMPLETELY unfounded. Such a powerful propaganda catapult the White House employs!

Hilary should win, because she is a woman.

How would Hillary becoming President change that?

I am well aware of that fact, but that doesn't detract from the relevance of the quote. I firmly believe that regardless of the "party" of the president that resides in the White House and how much he agrees or disagrees with my points of view, that it is my right as a citizen of this country to say what I want about the quality of the job they are doing.

Hillary's Latest Insanity, And It Ain't Mad

Hillary Clinton has received criticism for her remarks comparing George Bush to Mad Magazine's Alfred E. Newman in her speech to the first Aspen Ideas Festival. She accused Bush of avoiding tough issues with the character's famous attitude:
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton went on the attack against President Bush in a speech Sunday, accusing him of damaging the economy by overspending while giving tax cuts to the rich. ...

"I sometimes feel that Alfred E. Newman is in charge in Washington," Clinton said referring to the freckle-faced Mad Magazine character. She drew a laugh from crowd when she described Bush's attitude toward tough issues with Newman's catchphrase: "What, me worry?"
Hillary appears to have a problem with reality. Unemployment has reached its lowest point in years, down to 5%, lower than the average unemployment rate during her husband's terms in office. The economy continues its strong growth, showing an annual growth rate in GDP for the last two quarters of 3.8%. In fact, the economy has continued to gain so much strength despite the effects of energy-price spikes that the Fed has increased its base lending rate for the ninth time to keep the economy from overheating.

That, however, isn't the only example of Hillary's delusional thinking in her Aspen speech. Later, she argued for additional spending on alternative energy sources, saying that this should be the last generation to depend so heavily on foreign sources for our needs. While that doesn't sound like bad advice, her underlying argumentation comes across as extraordinarily ignorant for a Senator seeking re-election, let alone a major White House contender:
"Ours will be the last generation to rely so exclusively on fossil fuels," she said, adding that the "ups and downs of the global oil market cost the U.S. economy $7 trillion last year ... almost enough to pay off our entire national debt."
Spikes in the oil market cost our economy seven trillion dollars in one year? Really? We need to see Hillary's evidence for this assertion, as our records show that the American GDP for all of 2004 amounted to $11.735 trillion (see table 3). Hillary needs to explain how she can calculate that two-thirds of our economy went into oil-price spikes. Energy only accounts for around $250 billion of our current GDP, and total imports account for only $1.5 trillion.

That assertion exposes Hillary as a demagogue and a liar, someone who throws around false statistics to deceive her audience. It may be effective for now, when all she has to do is motivate the overwhelmingly Democratic electorate of New York. But deceptions like this will come back to haunt her when she runs for the Presidency, as expected, in 2008. Spouting these ludicrous notions in 2005 might demonstrate Hillary's own problems with the "What, me worry?" attitude.

Unfortunately that seems to be standard for the federal Democrat leadership these days. I wish they'd get rid of these weenies so we can have a more effective second party and slow the growth of government. Both parties are only interested in expanding the government, and it's best for all of us to have them fighting each other rather than passing more laws.
