Blinded me with Science

Goddamn science with all its stupid facts and benefits. If you approve of science and knowledge then you're helping the terrorists. Now stop using that pretty little head of yours for thinking...

Climate Researchers Feeling Heat From White House:
"Scientists doing climate research for the federal government say the Bush administration has made it hard for them to speak forthrightly to the public about global warming. The result, the researchers say, is a danger that Americans are not getting the full story on how the climate is changing."
.... 'cause we'll tell you what to think:

Fake TV News: Widespread and Undisclosed :
"Over a ten-month period, the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) documented television newsrooms' use of 36 video news releases (VNRs)—a small sample of the thousands produced each year. CMD identified 77 television stations, from those in the largest to the smallest markets, that aired these VNRs or related satellite media tours (SMTs) in 98 separate instances, without disclosure to viewers."
“There’s just too many leaks, and if there is a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is.” [Bush, 9/30/03]

Bush authorized leak of Iraq intelligence estimate, indicted ex-Cheney aide says:
"A former White House aide under indictment for obstructing a leak probe, I. Lewis Libby, testified to a grand jury that he gave information from a closely-guarded 'National Intelligence Estimate' on Iraq to a New York Times reporter in 2003 with the specific permission of President Bush, according to a new court filing from the special prosecutor in the case, THE NEW YORK SUN reports Thursday."
"Fight, fight! A black and a white...."
Rumsfeld Challenges Rice on 'Tactical Errors' in Iraq

Here is my religious rant from last week. It was good to see an article that addressed part of my rant:

The Religious Left:
"Lo and behold, there is a religious left. The Catholic Church is helping to lead the fight against immigration restrictions. A week doesn't seem to pass without some group convening a conference on religion and liberalism. Last year, Rev. Jim Wallis' progressive manifesto, God's Politics, became a best seller; now Jimmy Carter's book attacking the religious right is on the list."
Honor the soldiers by voting them into office:

Fighting Dems
There are a special group of Democrats who first sign up to serve their country, often in wars half way around the world, and then returned home and continue to fight for the values they hold dear in the Democratic Party. Right now more than fifty veterans are running as Democrats for Congress and dozens more are running up and down the ticket.
Al Fraken recently debated mAnn Coulter. Al absolutely destroys mAnn in his opening statement. Read the whole thing. It's worth it:

An Evening with Ann Coulter: Opening Statement:
"Let me give you another example.

On page 265 of her book Treason, Ann writes of Tom Friedman, the New York Times columnist. “He blamed twenty years of relentless attacks by Muslim extremists on- I quote – ‘religious fundamentalists of any stripe.’”

This didn’t sound like Tom Friedman to me, so I found the one Friedman column that contained that phrase – “religious fundamentalists of any stripe.” It was from a December 26, 2001 column called “Naked Air,” about an airline where everyone would fly naked. “Think about it,” Friedman writes, tongue firmly planted in cheek, “If everybody flew naked, not only would you never have to worry about the passenger next to you carrying box cutters or exploding shoes, but no religious fundamentalists of any stripe would ever be caught dead flying nude.”"
For the geeks. This is really big news:

Apple Unveils Software to Run Windows XP:
"SAN JOSE, Calif. - Shares in Apple Computer Inc. surged Wednesday after the computer maker unveiled software to help owners of its new Intel-based Macs run not only its own operating system but also Microsoft Corp.'s rival Windows XP system."

Global warming is real?? Yeah, right. Next I expect you liberals will try to tell us that you can't grow dinosaurs out of fossilized amber!
