FT.com / Arts & Weekend: “Would you take advice on how to vote from the Beastie Boys? The veteran rappers hope so: their new album To the Five Boroughs is full of grammatically challenged but politically unambiguous statements like ‘George W’s got nothing on me, we got to take the power from he’.
The bad news for Bush is that this album is the new number one in the US charts, having been purchased by 360,000 Americans last week – many of them potential voters”
Number one music – Antibush, Number one movie – Antibush
Too many folks are onto the scam – Dixiechickin’ is on the lamb.
The Founding Fathers Meet George Bush – Maureen Farrell at BuzzFlash.com: “Charles S. Beard noted that, ‘You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence.’ “
Daily Kos :: Political Analysis and other daily rants on the state of the nation.: “Washington Post: Despite the end of the occupation
Knight Ridder: Iraqis see hope in end of U.S.-led occupation
Los Angeles Times: end of a deeply divisive American-led occupation
San Francisco Chronicle: the U.S.-led military occupation had formally ended
Miami Herald: ended its occupation of Iraq
Associated Press: the end of the American occupation
Arizona Republic:: the 160,000 foreign troops in Iraq were transformed from occupiers into guests of a U.S.-backed government. “
Anybody but me think this is just another ‘Mission Accomplished’ moment?
The Washington Monthly: “What to say? The argument over the film mostly seems to revolve around whether it’s factually accurate and presents a logical case, a conversation so pointless as to be laughable. I mean, it’s a polemical film from Michael Moore, not a Brookings Institution white paper. It’s like complaining that editorial cartoons are unfair because they don’t portray the nuance of serious policy discussions.”
AMERICAblog: Because a great nation deserves the truth: “Cheney just got booed at the Yankees game
(I was thinking of retitling this: ‘Yankee fans tell Cheney ‘go fuck yourself.”)
I just got a live phone-in from the Yankees vs. Boston game in NYC taking place right now. Dick Cheney just got booed by the crowd!
Even as my friend Michael called me from his seats at the game, God Bless America was still playing in the background. During the 7th inning stretch at Yankees Stadium, they play God Bless America and show on the big screen pictures of anyone famous who’s in the audience that night. Dick Cheney is apparently in the audience, and as soon as his face went up, the entire crowd started booing! As my friend Michael tells it, this is the blue-collar Bronx we’re talking about, and Cheney is still getting booed – not a good sign for the Bush-Cheney ticket. As soon as the camera guys realized Cheney was getting booed, they quickly switched the picture on the screen to someone else.
Michael’s read of the situation, as a die-hard Yankees fan: The election is over.”
One has to wonder how much national exposure this will receive. Story has apparantly
been confirmed by ESPN.
