FLORIDA ELECTRONIC BALLOT Thanks Debbie K

These stories are all essentially accurate but look at the different ways the newspapers' websites handle the ISG report:

WASHINGTON POST (NEVER DID LIKE BUSH)
US 'almost all wrong' on weapons The 1991 Persian Gulf War and subsequent U.N. inspections destroyed Iraq's illicit weapons capability and, for the most part, Saddam Hussein did not try to rebuild it, according to an extensive report by the chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq.

WASHINGTON TIMES (A PRO-BUSH PAPER) THEIR LEAD STORY WAS HEADLINED "BUSH SLAMS KERRY'S PLAN TO 'RETREAT'"
Saddam worked secretly on WMDs Saddam Hussein's goal through the 1990s and until the 2003 U.S. invasion was to end U.N. sanctions on Iraq, while working covertly to restore the country's ability to produce weapons of mass destruction, a report by the chief U.S. weapons inspector says.

SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS (ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORT)
US report: Iraq didn't have WMDs Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction programs had deteriorated into only hopes and dreams by the time of the U.S.-led invasion last year, a decline wrought by the first Gulf War and years of international sanctions, the chief U.S. weapons hunter found. And what ambitions Saddam harbored for such weapons were secondary to his goal of evading those sanctions, and he wanted them primarily not to attack the United States or to provide them to terrorists, but to oppose his older enemies, Iran and Israel.

Andy Borowitz will be on my program at 12:35 today

ANDY BOROWITZ
U.S. FACES SHORTAGE OF BOTOX SHOTS
Angry Actresses March on Washington
Production problems at a key Botox plant in Beverly Hills have resulted in a severe shortage of Botox injections, causing some plastic surgery professionals to fear a significant increase in the number of furrowed foreheads and unsightly crow’s feet at next year’s Academy Awards.

Yesterday I read an article from Andy's BOROWITZ REPORT book on the air, and email makes it clear that many of you appreciated being informed about the deterioration in craftsmanship among aliens who produce crop circles. Andy's interview with the Idaho farmer whose field had been messed up by a poorly-made, unfinished "half-assed" crop circle illustrated the problem. Borowitz was, as usual, miles ahead of the traditional media on yet another story.

email no WMDs
Did you listen to the little bytes of testimony on the news about there being no wmd in Iraq? The Bushidiots are now saying that Saddam had "intent" to develop. The only comment I heard was that scientists in Iraq "ASSUMED" that programs would re-start when sanctions were ended. So we lost over 1000 brave souls because of what someone assumed. It should be enough to make the whole country sick at it's collective stomach. How can anyone who has a heart beating in their chest or a brain in their head support this? Iraq is a monument to stupidity.

email WMDs / undecided voters
I think it's a waste of time to help the undecided voters to decide. I've told you that I was an undecided "Republican." Yesterday's report to Congress about no WMD in Iraq affirmed my earliest suspicions; we didn't need to go to war with Iraq. There's a lot of bad guys in the world that are hurting a lot of people- that's no reason to invade Iraq. Having said that, there is no way I can get myself to vote for Kerry. Call me what you will, I may sit this one out. Bush and Kerry need to focus on getting their Base out and not spend a lot of time on those of us to disgutsed to give a damn.

email Brad is a liar
Brad,
For some reason you continue to lie.
Last night I accidently tuned in to hear you accuse Vice President Cheney of having claimed that Saddam had a connection to 9/11, which is not true as you could verify if you cared about your credibility.
And you might also take time to read the final 9/11 commission report and Stephen Hayes' THE CONNECT for more an ample evidence to refute any claim that Saddam and Osama weren't working together.
But I know you are the kind of person who would rather hear yourself talk than actually learn the facts, which is why I do not listen to your show, or any show where you are spewing your idiocy.
I'm sure Herr Goebbels would be proud of you, however. What I wonder, though, is if you really belive the lies you continue to spew. Unfortunately, I think you are indeed probably stupid enough to believe them.
Regards
PTW

Well, actually, I'm the kind of guy who's tired of your ignorance and negativity. I am now blocking your email, so save your time.

 

email Iraq brain injuries
Brad,
This is a truly horrific result of the war in Iraq and some of the injured troops. How many of them and what will be the eventual cost? Completely unknown, and Bushco doesn't care at all.

email telling truth
Brad,
I am so glad you are a talk show host within my listening range (Temple). You are the only one in Texas within my range that I will listen to. You respect opinions that are different from yours and most do not want to listen to opinions that are not the same as theirs... Thanks for presenting truth and not propaganda.

email dumb Rep. Barton
Brad:
Found this hilarious story in my October 4, 2004 issue of Broadcasting and Cable Magazine. It’s on Page 9, “In The Loop” section. I guess Representative Joe has never seen Fox News. What a jerk this guy is.
Also, KLUP 930 doesn’t think there are enough Right Wing-Nuts on the radio so they changed format to offer us even more of the Hate-Radio Rodeo. I guess they’re preparing for the Kerry/Edwards win. Thanks, Brad, for making me laugh and keeping me sane.

Barton Bullies TV News
Broadcast news has sunk to an "instantaneous gratification, reality-TV scenario," complains Rep. Joe Barton, who oversees the broadcast industry as chairman of the House Commerce Committee. He's so angry he's threatening to hold hearings on Dan Rather's National Guard document fiasco. "It's going to be fair and balanced," says the Texas Republican.
The first subject in his sights: 60 Minutes, although he suspects the same shortcomings exist at other networks. For openers, he wonders why CBS let Rather serve as his own managing editor and worries that there's "no safety valve" to prevent Rather from putting his opinions into news stories.
"If somebody wants to broadcast to every American an opinion, you have the right to do that. Rush Limbaugh does that every day. But if you're going to proclaim it is the news … then there needs to be real safeguards." Perhaps, Barton suggests, too many TV reporters didn't get their start in newspapers—or, as he puts it, "real journalism." Print editing, he surmises, is more thorough.
What happens if lawmakers think it's time for a cleanup? Barton insists Congress won't pass any media restrictions, but does offer the ominous image of Russia, where station owners who anger the government hire "armed guards or pay a big bribe" to stay on the air.

Rationed language!?! This is a great one for spell-checkers!

email dying for nothing
I don't suppose that we Liberals who told the Conservatives two years ago that Bush and his gang were lying about threat that Saddam presented, will be getting an apology any time soon. We were not only shouted down, ridiculed and in some cases made to pay for our opinions with our careers, but we were even called unpatriotic and un-American. The smugness and arrogance of the Republicans is incredible at times. They can lie, steal and cheat and cause a 1,000 young soldiers to die for nothing and still claim it was the right thing to do.
