IS THERE ANYTHING WRONG WITH THIS BY-LINE?
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Bush administration issued a veto threat Thursday against legislation introduced in Congress that would scale back key parts of the anti-terrorism Patriot Act.Swallowing the Bushie authoritarian assumptions.
JOHN KERRY AND THE SPECIAL INTERESTS?
The Washington Post says that John Kerry has taken more than twice the amount of special interest money (corporate, labor, PAC money) than his closest Democratic rival. I'm not voting for John Kerry, but this story is worth less than maggot poo. George Bush is the motherfucker who has raised the most special interest money. He is the one who the corporations and wealthy have overwhelmingly flocked to for the preservation of their own interests, fucking over the 99% of Americans who don't have that sorta access.
Here's the stupid shit Kerry's spokesperson says about the issue:
"Senator Kerry has taken individual contributions from lobbyists, but that has not stopped him from fighting against special interests on behalf of average Americans," said Kerry spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter. "If anyone thinks a contribution can buy Kerry's vote, then they are wasting their money."Clean campaigns = clean democracy. Dirty campaigns ain't clean democracy. Kerry's rich, why couldn't he just tell those people to take back their money and just use his own instead?
