A Level Gaze

"What effect must it have on a nation if it learns no foreign languages? Probably much the same as that which a total withdrawal from society has upon an individual."
--G.C. Lichtenberg

Dick.

(live)

He looks good. Moves well, good color, fwiw.

Here comes the edwards blow. Matthew got it. Big Media Insider Matt.

Roosevelt twice in two speeches. Hmm.

I totally fricking rock.

Public schools. they are a key to see that every child yadda yadda. Nothing on the charters, the vouchers, religious schools (the one area in which faith-based enterprises has done some considerable good), nothing.

The Bush tax cuts are working. Nothing on the defecit.

Health care, George is working on it. Right. And tort reform is going to get it all solved. How much money are we talking about, here? Hasn't anyone added up the numbers and said even complete tort reform wouldn't make a meaningful dent in medical expenses?

Did I mention I had a new granddaughter?

9/11 -

"We are in a war we did not start." You're talking about Iraq? You can't be serious.

The terrorists never had the slightest inkling that we'd lose the will to defend ourselves, Dick. They were hoping we'd tear ourselves apart in the process. That's the whole point. I figured you'd know that.

"Gathering threat," one that merited full-scale war but had no capabilities.

One wonders what Libya was paid for its cooperation.

Yes, he shut down the network that supplied nuclear stuffs to Iran and Libya. But he didn't know it was there in the first place. And he should have.

Oh, yes, the <$1billion that somehow got spent (out of $18 b allocated), on rebuilding the schools and the roads. Somehow, everyone over there says it's worse off than before we got there.

Why would the repubs consider this the most important election in our history? Projection again?

V. polite applause re: Kerry's service.

Ok, here we go:

Kerry made the wrong calls on national security. Would support military action only via UN sanction. In the 1980s he opposed Reagan's defense initiatives. In 1991, he opposed Gulf War I. Post 9/11, he talked about leading a more sensitive war on terror (like he didn't say the same thing).

Kerry declared he'd forcefully defend America after it had been attacked. Wasn't that exactly what GWB did? He even went overboard about it. Nobody's got anything good to say about either Afghanistan or Iraq these days. Sheesh.

The $87B again. LOL, they're chanting "flip-flop." Joy. Maybe it really is all they've got.

He's calling out Kerry for neglecting American troops and their families? That's pretty rich.

A senator can be wrong for 20 years without consequence to the nation. But a president always casts the deciding vote. Hmm... So, when things are wrong, it's the president's fault, then?

That's right, keep beating on the flip-flop. You all look childish.

A man with a heart for the weak, vulnerable, and afflicted, who apparently likes them so much he wants to increase their numbers.

W's a man who calls evil by its name. It's Lester.

Uh, no. You're not going to win Massachusetts, even if they do have some very dumb cops in the Boston area.

Also, Bush wakes up early because he's a saint.

Thank you. Goodnight.
