Kerry caught in a lie: "I was startled to read the Aug. 10 issue of the editorial page of The Washington Times concerning the assertion attributed to Sen. John Kerry that he had spent Christmas 1968 aboard his swift boat some five miles inside Cambodia and had been shot at by our Vietnamese allies, as well as the Khmer Rouge.... concerning the assertion that Mr. Kerry was shot at by the Khmer Rouge during his Christmas 1968 visit to Cambodia, it should be noted that the Khmer Rouge didn't take the field until the Easter Offensive of 1972".

Kerry has of course now backtracked about what he originally claimed was a "searing memoy" of his time in Cambodia. Are we seeing early-onset Alzheimer's here? Will his memories of routines abuses conducted by American troops in Vietnam also now be withdrawn? But that would be too decent, I think.

GWB good on John Kerry's Iraq policy: "Now, almost two years after he voted for the war in Iraq, and almost 220 days after switching positions to declare himself the anti-war candidate, my opponent has found a new nuance," Bush said. "After months of questioning my motives and even my credibility, Sen. Kerry now agrees with me." Bush added sarcastically that Kerry still had time to change his position: "There are still 84 days left in the campaign.""

One hundred percenter has a John Kerry Christmas poem that is very much to the point.

Abortion horrifies me but I agree with this: "Britain granted its first license for human cloning yesterday, joining South Korea on the leading edge of stem-cell research, which is restricted by the Bush administration but which many scientists think might lead to new treatments for a range of diseases."

Eugene Rants is getting pretty enraged at some Leftist distortions about the elderly and about health care.

Diary of an anti-Chomsky-ite is worth a look if you have not seen it already. He posts fairly often.

Leftists acclaim "diversity" yet say "All men are equal". Figure that one out.

Why can those who claim to understand the dangers of meddling with a complex ecosystem like the natural environment, not understand that government interference with a complex system like the economy is perilous too?

The conflict between conservatives and Leftists is not usually a conflict between realists and idealists. Mostly it is a conflict between realists and people who will say anything to win applause
