Good morning

  • The Washington Post reports reports that some black Americans, though they want rid of President Bush, can find no reason to vote for JF Kerry. The paper describes this feeling about the Democrat as “festering dissatisfaction,” which term I like, and suggests many will simply stay home on Election Day. One man they interviewed said he might vote but skip the Presidential race.

    Kerry needs everyone who would be considered part of the Democrat, though not his, base.

  • According to the New York Times, Democrats are troubled that members of the military stationed overseas are more likely to vote than expatriates, reasoning that civilians living overseas are more likely to vote Democratic than are those in the services.

    This is blamed on the Pentagon’s voting and advocacy systems, not available to civilians.

  • The Los Angeles Times reports that Carl Cameron, chief political reporter for the Fox News Channel, wrote a goofy story about JF Kerry’s pre-debate manicure. The spoof was accidentally posted to the network’s web site Friday, which prompted an apology from the network and a reprimand for Cameron.

    The network used Kerry’s excuse for saying he voting for the $87-billion before voting against it, which was also Bill Clinton’s excuse for telling some Texans in 1995 that he had raised their taxes too much:

    Kerry: “I had one of those moments late in the evening when I was tired in the primaries and didn't say something clearly.”

    Clinton: “My mother once said I should never give a talk after 7:00 p.m. at night, especially if I'm tired.”

    FOX News Channel: "We regret the error, which occurred because of fatigue and bad judgment, not malice."

    I don’t see the big deal. Kerry was trying to bond with the male voter, as most American men can relate to getting their nails done before a big event, right?


    Oh my, yes! I never debate without at least THREE coats of pearlescent powder pink! It the nail lacquer recommended for debates and A.N.S.W.E.R. rallies by the boys at Queer Eye!
