What if your senator missed 75% of the Intelligence Committee’s hearings?

August 31, 2004

One of mine did.
His attendence record for the regular Senate sessions is damn poor too. 10% is a failing grade no matter how you slice it.

His running mate has a problem showing up to work too.

Remember how the President is elected.

CD Harris points out that CNN now puts President Bush ahead in the Electoral College.

You have to search CNN for the article. For some reason, it’s not on the main page or the politics page…

Protest Warriors on the March!

Outside the Permeter has a couple of posts on them in NYC.

Jeff Goldstein is obviously having a good time.

Double standards

Tony points out that the ACLU has very different standards concerning free speech of leftist vs. anybody else. No surprise there.

Liberal Protester update

August 31, 2004

It’s pointed out that:

Protesters have decided to exercise their “free speech” rights by filling bags and balloons with urine and lobbing them at policemen. This disgusting practice is going on westbound on 35th and Broadway. Stay clear.

In addition, there are groups that are passing out baskets of wirecutters and razor blades to cut the plastic Flexicuffs the police use to handcuff suspects under arrest. The subversive behavior is bad enough but when you equip thousands of protesters who refuse to police themselves with razor blades, that’s a bad scene just waiting to happen.

Hopefully, the police will file concealed weapons charges against those with the razor blades.
