That is liberal blogger Mike Stark of CallingAllWingnuts getting assaulted by campaign workers from the George Allen campaign. His crime? He asked Allen why he spat on his first wife.
I guess this is Allen's new way of showing he isn't a racist. Now he is just showing that he hates everyone.
I hope Mike takes Allen and his entire staff to court and talks to the police about some assault charges. This should be the end of Allen's career right here, if we weren't in a country run by lunatics like Allen.
In the last few weeks we have heard the right-wing talking heads going on about how the Insurgents, Iran and North Korea are trying to influence the elections. This morning, we have the following as the big story:
North Korea agreed on Tuesday to return to six-party talks on dismantling its atomic weapons just weeks after staging its first nuclear test, and a U.S. envoy said he wanted to see "substantial progress" after a year-long hiatus.
Envoys from North Korea, the United States and China met in Beijing and agreed to resume the talks in the near future, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on its Web site.
So is North Korea still trying to influence the elections? Maybe they are. Perhaps they are hoping this will boost the Republicans chance of winning, because they know it is easier to screw with a Republican controlled America. They didn't have nukes under Clinton. They got them under Bush and even tested them. Chew on that one for awhile John Gibson.
This is a perfect example of how psychotic Jean "full of" Schmidt really is:
This doesn't happen every day: An incumbent member of Congress, in the middle of a re-election battle, says that storing nuclear waste shipments from around the world in her district may be a good idea.
U.S. Rep. Jean Schmidt does say that, and her support for studying the idea has become an issue in her re-election campaign, especially in rural Pike County, in the far eastern end of her sprawling Southern Ohio District, where the nuclear wastes would be stored.
"I'm not advocating for it one way or the other," Schmidt told The Enquirer. "I'm saying it is something we need to look at."
Schmidt said she sees potential to create "hundreds, maybe thousands of jobs" in an economically distressed part of the state, where double-digit unemployment rates are the norm.
That's how thanks her constituents - by wanting to dump nuclear waste on them. I doubt Hamilton county would end up with this. I am more out to think this project would happen in Brown or Adams county. There you go farmers - you can grow corn that glows in the dark. All that compliments of your friendly Republican congresswoman.
Also did you catch that one part of this? "storing nuclear waste shipments from around the world". Yeah that is a great idea. In this "new world of terror", let's invite the key ingredient to dirty bombs to be shipped to our coasts and then trucked across the eastern part of the country into Ohio. Just think of the major areas these shipments would go through.
Please support Duncan Hunter in his fight for the 2008 RNC Presidential nomination. Here is a good look at your new man:
Come on, you can do it. This man needs your support dear Republicans. He proved to the world that we do not torture at Gitmo by simply showing what we feed them. He still believes strong in Rummy, and you never know - maybe he will keep him as the Secretary of Defense. This is the perfect man for you to support. Give him your vote in the 2008 primaries and get your killin' on.
Josh even has some great slogan's for Hunter's run.
One thing is for certain - Bush has used the federal government as a political pawn more than any other President. Here is even more proof of it:
During a whirlwind five-hour trip to bolster an endangered GOP congressman's reelection prospects, White House political guru Karl Rove last week delivered a fiery speech to 500 party activists, then shook every available hand and posed for snapshots like a rock star. He toured suburbs recently trashed by a snowstorm. He also found time to huddle with local strategists.
But the most significant element of Rove's effort to help four-term Rep. Thomas M. Reynolds keep his job may have occurred behind closed doors, when the White House strategist met with a federal disaster relief official contemplating how to respond to the storm. Four days later, Reynolds announced that President Bush would authorize millions of dollars in federal disaster aid for the area.
That is not the key part however. Further down in the article you get to the smoking gun:
Instead, Rove is giving a virtuoso performance designed to prevent the Democrats from taking control of the House and Senate or, if that is no longer possible, to hold down the size of the Democratic victory to make it easier for the GOP to come back in 2008. His plan is three-pronged: to reenergize any conservatives who may be flagging; to make sure the GOP's carefully constructed campaign apparatus is functioning at peak efficiency; and to put the resources of the federal government to use for political gain.
This shows how bad the Majority Leader is:
Rumsfeld's leadership of the bloody mission in Iraq has become a divisive issue in the Nov. 7 elections. Many Democrats and a few Republicans are calling for his resignation, but President Bush repeatedly has defended him. So did House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, during an appearance Sunday on ABC's "This Week."
"I think Donald Rumsfeld is the best thing that's happened to the Pentagon in 25 years," Boehner said. "This Pentagon and our military needs a transformation. And I think Donald Rumsfeld's the only man in America who knows where the bodies are buried at the Pentagon, has enough experience to help transform that institution."
Yeah. Boehner also said that "Medicare was working great" (or his office did) when seniors in his district who could not get medicine called. They also refused to talk anymore about it - well that is until Mort Meier decided to run against him.
So what is happening in Boehner's district when he is out being the little whore for the incompetent Rumsfeld?
A Hamilton soldier has been killed in Iraq.
The U.S. Department of Defense has confirmed that Army First Sgt. Ricky L. McGinnis, 42, of Hamilton died on Thursday from injuries suffered earlier that day when an improvised explosive device detonated near his dismounted patrol.
McGinnis was assigned to the First Cavalry Division based out of Fort Hood, Texas.
That's it. My Town, the town next to Boehner's home, suffers yet another loss soldier in Iraq.
We can still get the idiot out of office. Remember to vote for Mort Meier and send lobbyist loving John Boehner packing.
How long have we been talking about problems with voting machines now? Funny how when an election grows near that could cost the Republicans their control of Congress, the federal government now looks into them:
In the debate about the reliability of electronic voting technology, the South Florida parent company of one of the nation's leading suppliers of touch-screen voting machines is drawing special scrutiny from the U.S. government.
Federal officials are investigating whether Smartmatic, owner of Oakland, Calif.-based Sequoia Voting Systems, is secretly controlled by Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, according to two people familiar with the probe.
In July, a Treasury Department spokeswoman disclosed that a Treasury-led panel had contacted Smartmatic, and a company representative said his firm was ''in discussions'' with the panel. At the time, those discussions were informal. The government has now upgraded to a formal investigation, the two sources said.
Sequoia's electronic voting machines operate in 17 states. In Florida, the machines are used in four counties: Palm Beach, Indian River, Pinellas and Hillsborough.
Miami-Dade and Broward use other technology.
Concerns about Smartmatic are keen on the eve of the Nov. 7 election, given fears that someone with unauthorized access to the electronic system could create electoral chaos. Some critics believe that if the Venezuelan government is involved, Smartmatic could be a ''Trojan horse'' designed to advance Chavez's anti-American agenda.
