readies 'significant speech'
stung by the erosion of his lead over Sen. John Kerry in post debate
polls, has abruptly scheduled a major speech for tomorrow in hopes
of halting Mr. Kerry's momentum.
backs off al Qaeda assertions Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld appeared Monday to back off earlier statements suggesting
Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein had links to al Qaeda. He also conceded
that U.S. intelligence was "wrong" in its conclusions
that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

today at an appearance before the Council on Foreign Relations regarding
ties between al-Qaida and Iraq regrettably was misunderstood...
David Hackworth's latest column is quite interesting. He
is proposing that the draft will be reinstated. Hackworth
has been proven to be right so many times that I tend to find
him more believable than the government in general and this administration

Walt is Blow-Dry's spokeswoman. Some of her remarks about the issue
are just plain vapid and silly. From the Houston Chronicle:
Walt said Perry's existing procedure for reviewing death penalty
cases is adequate without having to establish a moratorium.
"The governor looks at each case individually," Walt
"Is there a question about DNA? Is there a question on the
evidence? Is there a question about innocence? These are all questions
he's looking at anyway."
She noted both Green and Miniel confessed to their crimes and
that is "the strongest evidence."
is she living in, believing that confessions are strong evidence?
Search Google for "false
murder confessions" and browse the first 44-thousand
results, Ms. Walt!
Look at the coerced confession in the Austin yogurt shop murders
that resulted in a successful lawsuit against the city. Wake up,
girl! Wake up, Blow-Dry!
Baghdad kid deaths
I listen to your program whenever I can and I think you are the
best talk radio host on the air, on any station I can tune in.
This afternoon you were talking about the children who are being
killed in Iraq and who is to blame for this. Please consider this.
The US started this war in Iraq. We invaded that country. Regardless
of what our intentions were, we started it. It follows that we
are now responsible for all the resulting death, bloodshed, and
destruction which has occurred...
just tuned in for a laugh...i haven't listened to ktsa in a long
time.i drop in on you just like cnn and the rest of the liberals.please
tell the dnc that they ought to get the facts right before spewing
out lies about our president.tuning to ktsa(cbs) is not the only
news outlet out there anymore. don'you get it!

Brad, my rhetorical question for the day: Why do nimrods like
Ed think you must be a liberal if you disagree with the monarchy?
I guess I went from libertarian to liberal this weekend and didn't
even notice. I've got to stop drinking. As always, love the show,
PLEASE keep up the excellent work.
I appreciate your realistic comments about the current President
and about the decisions he has been making for our country. I
voted for Bush in 2000; my distant cousin is Donald Rumsfeld,
so I have always been a supporter of Rumsfeld and thus the Bush
administration, in the past.
However, although I admire the intelligence and ability of Rumsfeld,
Cheney, Powell and others, I cannot say the same about George
W. Bush. Listening to Bush over the past four years, I have come
to see him as the "C" student he actually was during
his school years ... the war in Iraq has been ridiculously tied
to the 9-11 attacks and it seems as if we've all been hoodwinked
into thinking that war against Iraq was actually a good way to
I guess I'm one of the 3 or 4 undecided voters out there. Why
am I undecided? Bush- I like him, I've met him (as governor),
as a moderate conservative he resonates with me, and I want so
hard to believe him. BUT, we have no business being in Iraq. The
decision to invade was based on flawed information. I think that's
why our "major" allies were unimpressed (except England
-and I'm not convinced Blair was excited about the invasion).
Bush's inability to hear opposing voices concerns me. It's one
thing to give a clear and consistent message. It's another thing
to close your mind to opposing opinions and build a "strong
case" on shaky information... if Bush loses, it might have
the Republican party rethink itself. Get rid of the right wing,
hard core conservatives. Good thing- if Kerry wins, it keeps the
Clintons out of the White House for, at least, 8 years OR make
him a one term president and get a common sense Republican in
Is Nader on the Texas ballot?
No, he isn't.
