News: ... and I can't help but point out that Kerry has waffled more. Read his speech form last night criticizing things he voted for and decrying the need for things he voted against. How he has made it this far is beyond belief, to me anyway. If anyone can explain it please feel free to ... I hope he is called on to provide details about his very(!) liberal senate history.

* Some people are like Slinkies . . . not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs
* Procrastination is like masturbation; it's all good until you realize you just fucked yourself
* I'd rather smear my nuts in honey and then tea bag a red ant hill than watch the matrix reloaded again
* heroin should be more widespread. it's like an off button for morons
* That's when I brought up the fact that lesbians are looked upon as "fine", wheras gay men are always getting the complete beat out of them for no reason. She got pissed off at this comment, and snapped at me "What, are you a fag too or something?!"
* I'd really hate someone to have a website containing all the stupid things I'd said.
* i was watching Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon the other night ... and i was wondering where all the tigers and dragons are ... then i realised they're all crouching and hidden
* COUNTER STRIKE CURED MY PORN ADDICTION
* I beat the internet ... the end guy is hard
* death is the ++ at the end of life
* If anyone molests me while I'm gone, take some pictures for my website
* and yet I have NO spelling erros
* i wonder what my dog tries to say to me when he barks ... "stop touching me there"

An article by Ann Coulter has been dropped by USA today ... in other news, she is a leggy Bush bimbo :)
Edwards opens mouth ... amazingly, this time he is not suing anyone (and raising the cost of our medical coverage :).) To those of you who are anti-war - he also says, to terrorists, "You can run. You cannot hide. And we will destroy you." Um, that sounds like a war, no? Oh yeah, and by Kerry decree they skip talking about anything controversial. How quaint.
Kerry to pester old vets ... unsolicited phone calls. How repugnant.

Moore also calls all Republicans 'hate-triots' who 'wake up at six in the morning trying to figure out which minority group they're going to screw today' ... First off - I was up at 4:20am, thank you very much. Secondly - I had no idea I was supposed to hate people and screw minorities. I apparently have almost 30 years of non-hate/non-screwing-of-minorities to catch up on.
