Quick Political Website Commentary

And to finish off my glorious wireless blogging this lunchtime, a few quick observations on the political web:

Memo To Bush:
Number of times John Kerry's face appears on JohnKerry.com today: 6.
Number of times your face appears: 0.

Number of times John Kerry's face appears on GeorgeWBush.com today: 6.
Number of times your face appears: 0.

I know negative campaigning is endemic these days, Mr. President, but this is ridiculous. Get your face on your homepage and a real message up there.

Bush Hate Site of the Day:
For my readers who just can't get enough inane anti-Bush bile.

Someone at Bush headquarters didn't manage to snag Bush2004.com. Headline on this parody site: "Al Qaeda Bombers Endorse Bush--Terrorists Thank Allah For America's 'Holy Idiot.'"

Personally, I hope this gets as much exposure as possible. This is the kind of thing that makes the rabid anti-Bush folks look... well, speaks for itself, really.


Actually, that was a real story. Right after the Madrid bombings, a group claimed responsibility, and also released a statement saying that they supported Bush, because of the impossibility of finding a leader "more foolish than you, who deals with matters by force rather than with wisdom." By way of contrast, "Kerry will kill our nation while it sleeps because he and the Democrats have the cunning to embellish blasphemy and present it to the Arab and Muslim nation as civilization. Because of this we desire you (Bush) to be elected." Yahoo and Retuers don't appear to have archived the story, but you can find the [url=http://bbs.clubplanet.com/showthread/t-217126.html]full text[/url] around the web pretty easily. The particular group claiming responsibility and making the statement almost certainly had nothing to do with the bombing and probably have no real connection with Al Qaeda, of course -- just a bunch of idiots attempting to piggyback on somebody else's attack.
