News: ...
** Late Updates:
* Feds Triple Number of Poll Watchers ... which is needed only because of the Election fiasco we find ourselves in, again.
* Iraq had WMDs and was associated with al-Qaeda? ... if true, this could really impact the election. If not true, 'reporting' it now (with the goal of affecting the election) is very poor form!
* Terrorists execute 11 Iraqis ... and release the video. Prayers and condolences to their families and friends.
* O'Reilly settles harassment case ... which, of course, means we will probably never know the truth ...
* Soros not too confident of Kerry victory
* Germans for Bush
**
from Drudge: WORLD EXCLUSIVE: ABCNEWS TO AIR TERROR TAPE ON WORLD NEWS TONIGHT AT 6:30 EST
* DOW back up over 10k! ... where it belongs! (And Oil down sharply, closer to where it belongs too)
* Civilian death toll in Iraq ... OUCH!
* FBI to investigate Halliburton contracts
* Remember - no more float for your checking account!
* Malvo gets life, no parole
* Iraqi Insurgents take another hostage ... Polish woman (in addition to the Japanese gentleman they also have currently).
* More on ABC's al-Qaeda terror-threat-tape ... UPDATE:Drudge:ABC withholding 15 minutes of the tape from CIA/FBI??
* BoSox Pull It Off in 4 straight - not to win for another 86 years :P
* Outsourcing to India via Canada ... "near-shoring"? ... I hear a song coming on, 'blame Canada' ...
* Delta + Pilots = compromise? ... avoiding bankruptcy (for now, anyway) ((ATA did not avoid bankruptcy))
*Follow-UP:Al-Qaqaa-Gate: Quantity of explosives from Al-Qaqaa may be overstated ... and don't forget the last update from yesterday: almost certain that Russians relocated them ... Aaron has a few things to say about this as well - "Oil for Food cronies played “Three WMD Monty” while the UN stalled" ... more here (some add'l thoughts therein) ... Another update here ... Russians denying any involvement (let's see if we can find the truth, before election day!?)
... Here's a thought - Doesn't this whole issue actually support the cause for war in Iraq?? ... e.g. - Edwards says 'just one pound can bring down an airline' ... so we HAD to do everything in our power to get the madman controlling them out of power.
... Here's another thought - What good does it do the world for the IAEA to seal/lock a facility after inspecting it if they ALREADY KNOW it has a back-door(OK, technically it was a side-door), that they do not seal?? Just another example of the UN failing the world.

Lefties:
* More Dems-stealing-signs action ... can we just call shenanigans and chase them out of town with brooms?
* Politics of Oil ... I disagree with quite a few of the statements therein, but it is worth pointing out that Kerry will be drilling for oil in Alaska, which I am for but LOTS of DEMS are against. I wonder how the Sierra Club feels about that!? (probably about the same way the Humane Society feels about Kerry's stance on hunting :) )
* Hit by Hit - how many lies in the ad? "This anti-Bush radio ad is among the worst distortions we've seen in what has become a very ugly campaign. It states as fact some of the most sensational falsehoods that Michael Moore merely insinuated in his anti-Bush movie Fahrenheit 9/11."
* Politics of Division - "Kerry’s backers use shameful tactics to shore up a faltering base"
* Apparently it is OK to pull your kid out of school to stump for Kerry - "The Democratic Party's hold on the nation's teachers' unions is a solid as ever. It is plain to see that the leaders of the unions and the Democratic Party care less about educating children than they do about regaining their political power."

PPS - If you haven't, you should try out StumbleUpon! ... its free, and is an interesting concept - "interest-based" browsing. My handle is trejrco.
PPPS - Speaking of StumbleUpon, a very interesting politically oriented conversation going on ... requires SU to post, not to read/lurk.
PPPPS - Go here and sign up, give me a chance to win $$
