AFTER-WORD


  • Reporter Jim Milasqewski on NBC's Nightly News, Monday:
    April 10, 2003, only three weeks into the war, NBC News was embedded with troops from the Army’s 101st Airborne as they temporarily take over the Al-Qaqaa weapons installation south of Baghdad. But these troops never found the nearly 380 tons of some of the most powerful conventional explosives, called HMX and RDX, which is now missing. The U.S. troops did find large stockpiles of more conventional weapons, but no HMX or RDX, so powerful less than a pound brought down Pan Am 103 in 1988, and can be used to trigger a nuclear weapon.
    Kerry says: "Bush was silent." What would Kerry have had him say? I suggest: "When the facts don't fit the model JF Kerry needs to be elected, he or his crew either deny and contradict them or simply invent new ones." Kerry's crew includes the New York Times.

    As has been said, JF "has the wrong strategy for the wrong country, at the wrong time."



  • I had this to say, in part, on Monday afternoon.
    Where are they? Syria? Disappeared.

    Are they certain that they are certain that Saddam had no WMD?

    I think Kerry's mumbling about General Shinseki again.
    He's not going to let this one go. Once it is in the public's head, he can simply say that it's no matter when the material was there. "The simple fact is that this Administration did not send enough..."

    Hopefully, he'll be off the stage by the 1st of the year.



  • This afternoon, I mentioned that the AP was dragging out the President's old guard records and asking why his commanders honorably discharged him, while they were not demanding that JF Kerry sign Standard Form 180, releasing his records and perhaps letting us know why he was not honorably discharged from the Navy until President Carter granted amnesty to him and the other war protestors.

    Here's a press release from 377 Vietnam Special Forces vets demanding that Kerry do just that: sign the form and let us see what is hidden in his records.

    They won't budge JF, but could some of this be ready to leak as an "October Surprise"?



  • This one is off Drudge, from the Hollister Free Lance:
    Sometime between Oct. 12 and Oct. 16 unknown suspects vandalized a large Bush/Cheney campaign sign posted in the 700 block of McCray Street, spraying vulgarities denouncing the president, according to a Hollister police report.
    In a manner reminiscent of Genghis Kahn.



  • My kid sister called this afternoon for a friendly word, for herself and for my brother-in-law. She has some friend who have been hearing that "wrong war" rhetoric and eating it whole. I told her whom I thought would win the election, and she asked for a percentage. I confidently said, "Oh, I'd put him at 95-percent. One never knows, so that's the remaining five-percent."



  • Nineteen-year-old vocalist Ashlee Simpson was "caught" using recorded vocals on last weekend's Saturday Night Live. Her father/manager, Joe, said she has Acid Reflux Disease and this was the first time she had used a backing tape. He said that for her performance at the Radio Music Awards Monday, her doctor gave her a shot of cortisone.

    So in daddy's mind, it's criminal for his daughter to get caught trying to lip-synch, but it is standard procedure to shoot her full of steroids.



  • Tonight, I'm listening to Renaissance compositions from an anthology: Jacopo da Bologna, Baude Cordier, Josquin des Prez, Cipriano de Rore, Claudio Monteverdi, etc. Some madrigals, chansons, motets, and ballades.

    I like it, but now that I think of it, it shows just how musically out of touch I am. What kind of music does this Ashlee Simpson perform? I think I'll purchase one of her CDs and a bottle of Nexium.
