Substance Over Style

Bush Rehearses for Debate: The
September 29, 2004 · Nobody knows how the young girl
mysteriously got backstage at George W. Bush's practice session
for the first presidential debate. Perhaps she's the one who planted
the bottles of Evian water, the ones with "EM KNIRD" written in
reverse letters at the bottom. In any event, Bush and his assistants
apparently all drank from the bottles, and behaved most irregularly.
Satire by Bernard Weiner
Billionaires for Bush
September 29, 2004 · While Bush claims to lower Americans'
taxes, he is really shifting the burden to state and local governments,

Like Dogs in the Night
September 25, 2004 · Karl Rove is out of control.
He has gone beyond the pale and, quite possibly, beyond the law
in leaks and attacks on those perceived to be a threat to the current
regime. It's time for Americans -- both Democrat and Republican
-- to wake up and face the truth -- we are struggling under the
heel of a morally bankrupt, rabid right-wing pre-World War II Germany
facist cult. By Sheila Samples
How is it That...?

September 23, 2004 · Thirty-five years ago, John Kerry
was on the right side of the debate over the most disastrous war
of choice in U.S. history. If there is to be a fresh start for us,

White House. By Raul Groom
Which Was Worse?
September 22, 2004 · It is a good thing the forged

How to Beat Karl Rove on Election
September 21, 2004 · The Rove-led forces have proved

at least another four years. By Bernard Weiner
Young Goodman Bush
September 21, 2004 · On a fair November morn, Young
Goodman Bush bid adieu to his child bride, Laura, for the day. She

be careful and return safely to their cozy little cottage in the
Texan wilderness. Satire by Trevor Seigler
Open SecretUtter Failure
September 18, 2004 · Rove keeps throwing lies-encrusted
bones toward the John Kerry campaign to see if the Kerryites will

My Letter On behalf of Mrs. Niederer
September 18, 2004 · I had the misfortune of witnessing

September 17, 2004 · John Kerry's heroic service in
Vietnam and courageous opposition upon his return from war empower

will not honor those already fallen in Bush's costly misadventure.
By Doug Snider
The Courage to Change One's
September 17, 2004 · Bush's rigidity over the quickly
deteriorating situation in Iraq is resulting in the continued deaths
of American servicemen and innocent Iraqi civilians. Perhaps if
Bush and the neo-cons had not been so resolute in their unilateral
approach to diplomacy we could get help from some of our friends,
if we have any left. By Dan Gougherty
Smashing the Filter
September 16, 2004 · The right-wing have one tactic
left - end the election before it occurs. Demoralize Kerry's supporters

The Great Pall and its Fall: A
September 14, 2004 · Once upon a time, seemingly out

held sway. By Bernard Weiner
Bush and My Old Man

contacted me last week... By Bernard Weiner
Pravda on the Potomac
September 9, 2004 · George W. Bush's administration,
arguably the most incompetent and corrupt in US history, is given
a free pass by the media. Had the current management of the Washington
Post been in charge during the Watergate burglary, Richard Nixon
would no doubt have finished his term, unexposed and unpunished.
By Ernest Partridge
Four More Years

what I can see. By punpirate
Hey, Swing Voters! Truth Is NOT
September 7, 2004 · This surrender to relativism and
supposed subjectivity permits patently absurd notions to masquerade

baseless nonsense. By Thomas P. Straw

our democracy on a field that is rigged against us. By Todd Smyth
