President Bush to Campaign With Kilgore on Monday

The Post is reporting that Bush is planning to campaign with Kilgore in Richmond the night before the election.  This is at the same time that Bush's ratings have dropped to an all time low with only 39 percent approving of Bush's overall proformance.  My bet is this isn't going to help Kilgore, and might actually hurt him with independents who he is only at 18%.  Might this actually help Kaine?  Or will Potts pick up some more of Kilgore's 18%?  I have to agree with Chris on this one.  I think Kaine wins this.

"Seldom in my life have I met a dumber man."

This is a must read article!  This is about comments made by Colin Powell's right-hand man at the State Department, Larry Wilkerson.  He finally opened up and discloses his true feelings about this administration extreme failures.

Great quotes include:
"It's hard to sell [manure]," Wilkerson said
"Seldom in my life have I met a dumber man."
he had viewed Condoleezza Rice as "extremely weak."
"we have courted disaster in Iraq, in North Korea, in Iran, and generally with regard to domestic crises like Katrina."

New conservative court and the Right to Privacy

If the Supreme Court overturns Roe V. Wade or it is severally limits a woman's ability to have an abortion what will the public's reaction be?  In most polls I've seen the majority of the people in the country support a woman right to choose, at least in some form.  Will there be a moderate revolt if the Supreme Court swings far to the right?  Thing could get a lot worse if this court goes as right as it seems to be going.  Could this be a chance for the democrats to start winning more races as moderates experience first hand their rights getting striped away?  Is this possible a chance to do what the democrats have needed to do for a long time, mainly take a proactive stance their progressive issues...?

A Woman, At Least... but is that a good thing?

I read this article this morning and I got a bit angry.  I think the kind of sexism depicted by the author of this article gives support to the precieved ugliness of the word feminism.  This article gives almost NO consideration to Miers actual qualifications for a justice!  It argues that her being a woman is good enough.  It seems like reverse discrimantion and quota-ism in its worst form.

But I want to know what the rest of the progressive world things.

Application for employment

So you'd like to work from the Head Start program?
 - Oh yes very much so.

Why in particular are you interested in working in the Head Start program?
 - I love children and I think it's very important that all children have a fair shot at a quality education.  I want to make sure that even those children with less financial means are able to participate in quality pre-school.

Good Good.  You sound like a perfect candidate....  I just have one more question.  You are Christian correct?
 - Well no I was raised and am agnostic.

Oh I'm sorry you are not qualified to help these children...  I would suggest you try looking in to hell.  I think they have a spot reserved for you.
