A surprising endorsement from Taxachusetts: "Since the devastating terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, one American leader has maintained an unbending resolve to protect our homeland and interest against Islamic savages and those foreign governments appeasing them. That leader is President Bush. While out-of-touch U.S. politicians and world leaders have attacked President Bush's tactics, they can't question his steely commitment to keep America safe".

Kerry is pro-homosexual: "Sen. John Kerry's presidential campaign offers "GLBT" bumper stickers, a demonstration of his support for "gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered" activism. As WND reported, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Policy Institute has declared the Edwards-Kerry presidential ticket the most "gay-supportive" in the history of the U.S.... "John Kerry believes that same-sex couples should be granted rights, including access to pensions, health insurance, family medical leave, bereavement leave, hospital visitation, survivor benefits, and other basic legal protections that all families and children need," the site proclaims. "He has supported legislation to provide domestic partners of federal employees the benefits available to spouses of federal employees. He was one of 14 senators - and the only one up for re-election in 1996 - to oppose the Defense of Marriage Act.""

Baseball Crank (Slow loading) lists 13 major issues where John Kerry has said the same as the far-Left and the Islamofascists.

Opinion Journal notes today that John Kerry has been dissed by both Poland and Iran. I have always had a soft spot for the Poles so it grieves me to see Kerry mock the Polish contribution to the Iraq war as "bribed". It is a gross insult to the heroic and very honourable Poles. No wonder the Poles are now getting tired of the whole thing.

Mark Steyn: "If I wasn't a conservative before 9/11, I'd certainly be one now. On one side I see decayed, self-absorbed passivity: citizens reduced to junkies with government as the pusher. On the other stand the gun-crazies, the religious Right, the home-schoolers, the flat-taxers and all the rest: you don't have to agree with them on everything to appreciate that, in a new war which not all of the West will survive, they have an advantage over the Swedes and Belgians. A self-reliant conservative citizenry is a better bet than the subjects of an overbearing state."

Islamic morality: "Who are we allowed to seize as hostage? Who are we allowed to kill? For the past few weeks these questions have prompted much debate throughout the Muslim world. The emerging answer to both questions is: Anyone you like!"

Catholics for Bush: "The presidential race is tightening among Roman Catholics, as national polls show President Bush cutting into Sen. John Kerry's lead among Catholic voters in recent months. The trend could help Bush in a tightening race in New Jersey, a state with 3.4 million Catholics. A poll released last week - before Thursday night's televised debate - by the Barna Research Group, which focuses on a Christian audience, showed Bush pulling ahead of Kerry among Catholic voters but it also showed Kerry gaining ground among Protestant voters".

Two of Australia's major newspapers have been sponsoring a Leftist blog run by a Chomskyite. Apparently they have become a bit embarrassed by that -- but not enough to cancel the blog concerned. They now have quite a good conservative blog up as well.

Wicked Thoughts has just put up a set of incredibly funny church announcements. The one I liked best was: "Low Self Esteem Support Group will meet Thursday at 7 PM. Please use the back door."

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
