"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties. Truth was never put to the worse in a free and open encounter..."
~ Milton
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
~Benjamin Franklin

Nobody Does It Better

Today's lunch: Baked chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, and cantaloupe

Today's blogging: Light

Josh Marshall illustrates the "probabilism of innuendo" for us with this piece of typical NYPost dreck.

Robert Johnson gives us some more or the Alan Keyes story.

Avedon Carol brings us another chapter in the "campaign finance reform" saga.

Kevin Drum on the growing revelations that at least some of those "Swift Boat Veterans" have been lying, are lying, or were lying.

Via Cursor, we get the story of the co-author of Swift Boat Veterans, Mr. Jerome Corsi.

He's a charmer, too. Look what he's been sharing with the Freepers on their home site:

- CORSI: Maybe while he's there he can tell the UN what he's going to do about the sexual crimes committed by "priests" in his "Church" during his tenure. Or, maybe that's the connection -- boy buggering in both Islam and Catholicism is okay with the Pope as long as it isn't reported by the liberal press.

- CORSI: Let's see exactly why it isn't the case that Islam is a worthless, dangerous Satanic religion? Where's the proof to the contrary?

- CORSI: Islam is a peaceful religion as long as the women are beaten, the boys buggered, and the infidels killed. "

- CORSI: John F*ing Commie Kerry and Commie Ted [Kennedy] discuss their plan to hand America over to our nation's enemies.

- CORSI: Time to FREEP Chris Matthews of MSNBC. MSNBC is beginning to stand for "More Sh*t, Nothing But Communism."

I hope those of you on the Left, in the Middle, and on the Right take note of this. I have to say I pity anyone foolish enough to actually form a political opinion based on the writings of such a lunatic.

If you're willing to go through today's short Salon Day Pass, you can read Unfit for bookstores

The Kerry campaign calls on a conservative publisher to withdraw book after the Washington Post torpedoes the veracity of a Swift boat veteran. [...] Even some uncomfortable Republicans might breathe a sigh a relief if "Unfit for Command" were to vanish from bookstores: "I don't think the Swift Boat Veterans are helping the Republican cause," Rep. Christopher Shays, R-Conn., remarked on CNN Thursday.

And here you'll find an interesting breakdown on "US Public Beliefs on Iraq and the Presidential Election". I got there via who details and discusses some of the findings.
