Dennis Prager says that John Kerry's flip-flopping is clever: It convinces even people who violently disagree with one-another that Kerry is their man.

An amusing list here of the people who support John Kerry.

New documents on Saddam's anti-Americanism: "Iraqi intelligence documents, confiscated by U.S. forces and obtained by, show numerous efforts by Saddam Hussein's regime to work with some of the world's most notorious terror organizations, including al Qaeda, to target Americans. They demonstrate that Saddam's government possessed mustard gas and anthrax, both considered weapons of mass destruction, in the summer of 2000, during the period in which United Nations weapons inspectors were not present in Iraq. And the papers show that Iraq trained dozens of terrorists inside its borders".

Halliburton: "A Kerry ad implies Cheney has a financial interest in Halliburton and is profiting from the company's contracts in Iraq. The fact is, Cheney doesn't gain a penny from Halliburton's contracts, and almost certainly won't lose even if Halliburton goes bankrupt." More on the demonization of Halliburton here.

Even Michael Moore was fussier than CBS: "Michael Moore, director of the movie Farenheit 9/11, said Sunday that he was given the same phony documents used by CBS News in its infamous Sept. 8 "60 Minutes" story but that he rejected them for inclusion in his film because his staff did not believe they were authentic."

Leftist Anglicans blink: "Anglican progressives were dealt a crushing blow last night when the church's General Synod rejected a bid to allow the consecration of women bishops. After a long and impassioned debate in Fremantle, delegates at first gave in-principle support to overturning the 450-year-old tradition of male-only bishops. But in a historic vote, the bill then failed to achieve the necessary two-thirds majority in the church's three decision-making bodies - the houses of clergy, laity and bishops. The result underscored the bitter rift between conservative evangelicals, with a large support base in Sydney, and progressive elements within the church. Archbishop of Sydney Peter Jensen said that at the heart of the debate was the battle over how to evangelise a church which, on his estimation, has only 30 years of life left in it."


That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the Kerry campaign. They have put up a man whose policies seem to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though they have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftism is for most Leftists a desire to sound good rather than a desire to do good
