…So began the Bush-Cheney campaign to "Floridate" the will of the Venezuela electorate. It didn't matter that Chavez had twice won election. Winning most of the votes, said a White House spokesman, did not make Chavez' government "legitimate." Hmmm. Secret contracts were awarded by our Homeland Security spooks to steal official Venezuela voter lists….

Republican Shenanigans


Dear Lisa,
My donation is just a little something. I've been donating as much as I
can to the Kerry campaign and to almost anything to get Bush and Co.
out of office that I'm spreading my funds a little thin. But I think
think your website is one of the funniest and it keeps me sane in these
times where it makes me crazy that people actually support this
administration that is so corrupt and damaging.

Keep up the great work.

Dear Rose,
Thank you so much for your support.
I personally kiss each dollar.
Thanks for your support, and AHNC is at your service.
Take care and keep that safe room duct-taped tight.


Attitude: Not-so-Curious George (Bush)
President Bush claimed in an interview a while back that he does not read newspapers. His wife, Laura, later told a reporter that the president was fudging and that, in fact, he did actually peruse the press.

In matters involving the Bush family, it is generally wise to take Laura's word. And we were inclined to do so -- until the president's latest pronouncement about the benefits that have supposedly come America's way as a result of occupying Iraq.

The man who more than a year ago declared that the heavy lifting in Iraq was done, only to discover that the fight had barely started, is now back with another over-the-top pronouncement. "Today," Bush said last week, "because America has acted and because America has led, the forces of terror and tyranny have suffered defeat after defeat, and America and the world are safer."

By any measure, the president is wrong. Capital Times Monday July 19, 2004
