When is an Election not an Election?
Iraq's interim prime minister and the Bush administration are beginning to talk about the elections scheduled for next January in Iraq. The noise is about the reality that in many parts of Iraq the security issues won't allow elections to take place. Perhaps only three quarters of the country or two thirds of the country, geographically, will be able to vote. This sounds an awful lot like the Bush administration is trying to legitimize a bold move to put their new man into power in the position of the new Iraqi dictator, I mean, president. If only parts of the country will be able to vote, who will say what parts? Here is an idea, maybe the people who can't vote in their own town could come to Florida to vote, we know that always works out.

Rather Vs Dubya
Ok, I get the big stink over Dan Rather cooking the books about Bush's service records, but the guy is only guilty of depending on an unreliable source for the intel, er info he used to produce his news report. It's not like he relied on faulty info, er intel to launch a war or something. As I see it, the score is as follows.
Dead Soldiers -0- 1000+
Dead Civilians -0- 10,000+
Tax Dollars Spent -0- Billions
WMD's Found -0- -0- (OK, that one's a tie)
Worst part? I can't stand Dan Rather.

John McCain, the next president.
No, I'm not off my rocker, yet. Bush is already the president, so assuming Kerry continues to not run,
we'll have Bush another four years, and then McCain can be the next president. I'm sure he'll win,
he could have run as a Democrat and won this time.
