They don't count our votes

In case all the latest polls showing Bush's loss of popularity have deluded anyone into thinking we have a chance of wining either or both houses and also a chance of retaking the White House, I remind you that we will win nothing unless we address the issue of vote fraud.

Here's a post about the Ohio votes very much worth looking closely at:

"Democracy Breakin': Ohio's Electric Boogaloo
More on Ohio's Staggeringly Impossible '05 Results"

Found on Brad Blog, includes some disturbing information on vote count strangeness in Ohio.

Thanks to The Sideshow

Keeping our heads in the sand on this issue will inevitably ensure the Republican vote fraud machine will be left to operate smoothly in future elections.

Murtha takes no shit from Cheney

Here's a part of Murtha's speech you don't want to miss. From the NYT

...Mr. Murtha, a 73-year-old Marine Corps veteran of Vietnam combat, lashed back at Vice President Dick Cheney, who in a speech to a conservative group on Wednesday night condemned critics of the Iraq war. "The president and I cannot prevent certain politicians from losing their memory, or their backbone, but we're not going to sit by and let them rewrite history," Mr. Cheney said in an address to the group, Frontiers of Freedom, in Washington.

Mr. Murtha was disdainful of the vice president's remarks, saying that "people with five deferments" had no right to make such remarks. Mr. Cheney, like millions of other young men of the era, avoided military service during the Vietnam war....

The Times just can't print negatives about Cheney without softening the blow. What does this crack -- "like millions of other young men of the era, avoided military service during the Vietnam war.." -- add to the article?

When mentioning Cheney they can't help themselves; they must slide in the obligatory shuffles and bows.
