Black Kettle Watch

Yahoo! News - Kerry Vows To Restore 'Truth' to Presidency:
The value of truth is one of the most central values in America, and this administration has violated' it, Kerry said in an interview with The Washington Post aboard the Democrats' campaign plane Friday. 'Their values system is distorted and not based on truth.'
How does any Democrat make this kind of claim following eight years of Bill/Hillary? Incredible.

The last Michael Moore Post

Sullivan on Moore:
Actually, I think Moore may be objectively on the side of the Jihadists. But subjectively, he simply loathes American market capitalism more than Islamist fundamentalism. This mindset is structural. It was the same in 'Roger and Me.' And like all ideologies, it is resistant to any new data. So the threat of Jihadist terrorists using weapons of mass destruction is unimportant to Moore compared with outsourcing or the nefarious Bushes or evil corporate America. Those are his priorities. Nothing changed on September 11 for Moore. He has simply used that tragedy to pursue his ancient objectives. And they are a terrible, cynical distraction from the war on terror. In other words, Moore is guilty of the fundamental charge he has leveled against this president.

More concern about Edwards

Overlawyered confirms I'm not the only one worried about Edwards' trial lawyer background.

Vice-Ambulance-Chaser

John Edwards is the veep candidate with Kerry. Two very liberal candidates, and already the left is talking about how calling this a liberal ticket is the "same old tired rhetoric -- bla bla bla." If it's tired rhetoric, then so's the class warfare garbage the left keeps trying to sell.

More to the point, we REALLY don't want a trial lawyer this close to the presidency.

Weekend update

Best account of our weekend. Better than I could have written, anyway.

Someday, somebody ought to be embarrassed.

DoD News: Secretary Rumsfeld Interview with Roger Hedgecock, Newsradio 600 KOGO:
Rumsfeld:"Now what's actually happened? Right now you have the Iraqi Survey Group, which is a multinational group that's out there reviewing documentation and looking at suspect WMD sites. I was with the Polish minister of defense this weekend in Istanbul, Turkey at the NATO Summit. And in the course of that, he pointed out that his troops in Iraq had recently come across -- I've forgotten the number, but something like 16 or 17 -- warheads that contained sarin and mustard gas.
"Now these are weapons that we always knew Saddam Hussein had that he had not declared and they have tested them and I have not seen them and I have not tested them, but they believe that they are correct that these, in fact, were undeclared chemical weapons -- sarin and mustard gas -- quite lethal and that is a discovery that just occurred within the last period of days. If you think about -- most people remember the image of where Saddam Hussein was captured in that hole -- that pit that he was living in. That pit, that hole in the ground was probably big enough to hold chemical and biological weapons sufficient to kill tens of thousands of people. And therefore, it is not hard to hide things in a country the size of California. It's quite easy to hide things. In fact, we finally found a bunch of jet aircraft that they've buried underground."

Chemical weapons, eh? This revelation probably doesn't warrant a monumental I-told-you-so, but why is Drudge the only outlet making this known? Perhaps because it doesn't advance the mainstream media agenda, which is to make Bush look bad. I've always believed that WMDs were going to be a longer term issue. Here's the difference between basic assumptions of the left and right. When we didn't find WMD right away after Iraq fell, the right said, "OK, where did he put them?" The left said "They're not here so that means they were never here and Bush lied."

In case no one's noticed, the left's track record predicting things like the war outcome, the US economy and other issues has been almost 100% incorrect in recent years. The left deconstructed our military in the 90s, assuming that, since the Cold War was over, there were no more threats. Wrong again. Don't believe ANYthing these people predict, is my recommendation.
