“But three Purple Hearts and

Hearts and you're out.
I think Senator Kerry needs to talk about his Senate record, which is pretty thin. That's probably why he's talking about his war record, which is pretty confused.” –- Senator Slime-A-Vet Bob Dole
Bob Dole is sounding as though he is suffering from the sad effects of Viagra abuse.
"But as I recall, it was Terry McAuliffe who made reference to President Bush as being AWOL. They dragged up all the stuff. I think there were 80 stories in the media about the National Guard. There's only been about eight or 10 on the so-called Kerry flap." -- Senator Slime-A-Vet Bob Dole

Kerry spokesman Chad Clanton replied: "It's unfortunate that Senator Dole is making statements that official U.S. Navy records prove false. This is partisan politics, not the truth."

You might be a right wing Republican if...you don't see that "compassionate conservative" is an oxymoron and you don't know what "oxymoron" means.

Group to Air Ad Attacking Kerry's 1971 Testimony washingtonpost.com
“Kerry did serve with distinction in Vietnam when he easily could have avoided that killing field. His service to his country shouldn't be diminished by the same despicable, politically motivated tactics visited upon Sens. John McCain in South Carolina and Max Cleland in Georgia, also Viet vets. This kind of gutter-bashing doesn't belong in American politics, and vets shouldn't allow themselves to be used as ammo for cheap shots at one of their own.” -- Col. David H. Hackworth

Subject: Wish I wasn't so poor so I could send an email to the donate address
I am but a poor college student or this e-mail would go to your 'donate' address, with a monetary amount. Unfortunately, all I can offer are these kind words.
Since I discovered your website in April, I have been a Steady and Constant Reader. I live in the Eastern Time Zone, so I usually wait until the next day after you post to read your well thought-out and easily navigable web site. The 'toons and links that are provided on your page are insightful and show the outward results of the obviously keen and intelligent workings of the inner mind of a thinking Democrat, something which is sorely needed in this time of the NeoCon degradation of thoughtfulness and curiosity. You've also made a convert of one of my professors, a 72 year-old curmudgeon who caught me perusing your site while in class. I was about halfway down your 08/19/2004 page, to the picture of Bush "pulling the lever of off the voting machines" when I was caught. Professor walked up behind me, and he caught sight of that caption. I thought the poor old dude was gonna have a stroke he laughed so hard. First time I, or any of my fellow students, had heard Prof laugh. Hell, he usually doesn't even smile (this semester isn't the first time I've had him).
I thought you might want to know the positive effect that your website has on all age demographics. Thanks for having a free site so us poor college kids can get our daily dose of laughter medicine, and for making my grumpy Professor go easy on us (for a day, anyways).
Your e-mail was worth a million dollars to me. Thank you so much for writing.
The greatest support that can be given to AHNC is spreading the word. Thank you for that.
AHNC is free and balanced.
Keep your nose to the grindstone and party safely.
And for those who aren't poor college students and can afford a buck or two:
