The Campaign Scandal Generator.
Just in time for the lightning round of the campaign!
Most of the map is red
but the candidates are still neck-and-neck. Bush has the lead in a whole lot of huge states with small populations. But Gore has CA, NY, NJ and IL. Thus it is with the electoral college.
If they were electing by square mile, Bush would have it sewn up.
Three Strikes - You're out Mr. Bush
OK, so we know about the DWI arrest
but did you know about the hotel theft arrest or the disorderly conduct arrest? Michael Moore does and he is asking tough questions.
Bob Jones 2?
makes another misstep. Regardless of the outcome, the past 24 hours have been satisfying for Democrats
Bush receives more newspaper endorsements.
Also, editors are predicting
a Bush win. While I wince and grimace at the thought of that man in office, I also think the editors are deluded in thinking they have much influence over their readers' voting habits.
This man sickens me.
"When did you graduate?" Bush asked her, as she recalls. She told him. That's when Bush told her that Yale "went downhill since they admitted women."
Your president, America?
Who was that masked man?
And what was he thinking when he put it on?

The Complete Bushisms - Bush Quotables
Lets get the daily Bush Bash started with a bang today. Some of these are just too much. "We want to promote families in America. Families is where our nation takes hope, where wings take dream."
GWB on Letterman
"As executive producer Maria Pope leans over Dave's desk shouting something of importance to Dave, see Governor George W. Bush reaching over and grabbing the end of Maria's shawl. His glasses needed cleaning and everyone knows the shawl of a TV producer makes for a great cleaning cloth. So the Governor cleaned his glasses on Maria's shawl, as if she were a kleenex."
Apparently, Bush and Gore really are the same . . .
While it looks like a brillant AdBusters
culture jamming experiment, this was apparently just a simple 'proofreading' mistake.
Argh, I forgot to watch Letterman
last night. (I still don't have my TiVo.)
The Real Gore/Bush Debate Transcript
-- "The candidates have agreed on these rules: I will ask a question. The candidate will ignore the question and
deliver rehearsed remarks designed to appeal to undecided women voters. The opponent will then have one minute to respond by trying to frighten
senior citizens into voting for him."
The Republicans make character assassination an art form.
Several people have linked to this already on their sites and I haven't had a chance to update my own yet, but Phil Agre's latest piece about Republican dirty tricks is a must-read. "The past ten days will go down as a turning point in American history. This is what it's like when the far right is taking over your country: the people support Al Gore's policies, but the polls are shifting toward George W. Bush because the media is filled with false attacks on Al Gore's character."
Former Russian Prime Minister Suing George W. Bush
The irony is, Bush's statements were probably true
The Internet caused the Columbine massacre,
according to George W. Bush in Wednesday night's presidential debate. Maybe Al Gore shouldn't have been so quick to claim that he took the initiative in creating the Internet
Monkeyfist has some alternate questions
for the two candidates.
George W. Bush "suspended" from Texas Air National Guard.
He repeatedly says he was discharged "honorably", but some government documents seem to say otherwise
Arrggg!!! LA NBC is showing baseball!
I should have figured that people in Southern California would be more interested in watching sports than the debates.
"The vice president says he would rather protect this refuge than gain the energy, but this is a false choice ..."
~G.W. Bush (on Gore's plan to keep the protected status of Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, while Bush plans to open up parts of the protected land to oil prospecters.)
i happened to catch bush on larry king live last night.
what i found to be especially interesting was his body language. talking about women, being popular with women, winning the women's vote - shaking head "no" the whole time...having women in top level govt. positions - shaking head "no"...he shook his head "no" a lot. talking about reagan and what a great president he was - shaking head "yes".
WORLD EXCLUSIVE: GORE MOLE SUSPECTED TO HAVE INFILTRATED BUSH CAMPAIGN; FBI MOVES IN; DEBATE PREP TAPE EXPOSED BREACH
This could be big. I remember when I read about the whole Moncia dress incident on the Drudge Report and look what happened... I hope to god it is not true, I couldn't stand Bush winning because of something like this.
PS, don't yell at me for the caps, it's Drudge. What do you expect?
Will Bush or Gore do anything viable to help the environment?
I can't even believe Bush agreed to submit answers. On the other hand, Al "Earth in the Balance" Gore doesn't have much credibility either.
Bush: 342 / Gore: 224
Bush leads Gore in the number of jokes made about him on late night talk shows.
GW Bush regards Churchill as his favourite historical figure.
Or so he'll say on "Oprah", apparently. Now, given that Churchill was a depressive, bellicose alcoholic
, who ultimately lost by a landslide to a party promising widespread social reform, is this wise? ;)
The lead that Al Gore once enjoyed in most presidential polls in wake of the Democratic convention has all but disappeared, according to the latest Voter.com Battleground 2000 poll released Thursday.
The survey reports that the vice president’s numbers are slipping and George W. Bush is back on top for the first time in weeks.
Dubya gets subliminal?
The connection is a little shaky, but it makes his campaign seem more and more inept...
Yo dawg, peep Bush, he be up and on that whitecrib thang.
Believe it Yo. My pager goin off when I saw this word scribble...
Bush (shaking his head mournfully): "Dude, dude. You must be loaded, Holmes. You're cut off on the bong, ace. Your lameness is of a sameness. If every time you're sippin' on a 40 you start quoting Grouchy Marx, my man, you can't be hanging at Epsilon House. Major league bummer!"
Major league asshole:
Y'all have probably heard about this already, but I'm thinking it'd make for good discussion. While I'm always happy to hear of dirt on Dubya, is this really all that big of a deal?
Last week, Bush was up by 16 points
. Today, Gore is up
. Who are all of these “swing” voters that can't make
up their minds in the face of clear differences
between the candidates?
Craig Kilborn calls for the assassination of George W. Bush on national television.
"Just a little joke, of course. huh huh huh." Yeah, sure, maybe, though not at all funny, and also wildly illegal. CBS and Worldwide Pants have been forced to apologize, and the Secret Service has an active investigation. It should be noted, though, that this aired last Friday, and CBS and Worldwide Pants said and did nothing until this got talked about on a New York radio show yesterday. Why do I get the feeling that if, say, Regis got on his show and made the exact same "joke" about Al Gore, he'd be fired before 10:30 am and be blackballed for the rest of his life?
In polls, the Separation
of Church and State
does not rank as one of the top
for many Americans. However, with recent
Supreme Court rulings on the posting of the 10
to religious schools
, the debate has been very contentious with numerous
. Now as the election
approaches, Bush is for more
Church in our State
and Gore generally is for
the continued separation
Monday morning quarterbacking: Gore/Lieberman '00
I could've sworn it was going to be Massachusetts' own John Kerry. With New Hampshire Gov. Jeanne Shaheen and Missouri's Dick Gephardt removing themselves from the running, this was probably the most courageous choice,
and makes Cheney look even sillier than before. The downside is that the Connecticut senator's disapproval of Clinton during the Monicagate scandal may wind up calling more negative attention to Gore than positive. And then there's the bigotry, both veiled and unveiled, that no doubt is already on the way in ads, whisper campaigns and so on. I wonder to what extent was Gore's choice rushed by Bush's huge post-convention bounce. Did I miss any ramifications? Anyone care to play Dennis Miller here?
Why is George W. Bush the best candidate? Because he can deliver speeches from three hours into the future! When the Associated Press Goes Bad.
Time looks at Dubya's Veep choice.
Here's what's interesting:
"In fact, by (the time of Sen. John Danforth's interview) Bush not only knew he wanted Cheney to be his Vice President; he also knew Cheney would say yes. But that was information that neither man shared with Danforth. He and 10 other would-be running mates had laid themselves bare before Cheney and his vetting team."
Why would Bush continue to put people through an exhaustive
screening process after he already made up his mind... Unless he was digging for dirt on rivals?
J. Edgar Hoover lives.
george bush, beating around the bush.
good news: he's finally said something about GLBT equality issues. bad news: it ain't much. if he wins, i'm ditching my citizenship.
is all talk, yes indeed. Did I mention that I hate my governor?
