Shock: Press Pro Kerry
— Ace

I know it sounds crazy, but hear the author out:

Sen. John Kerry has gotten the white-glove treatment from the press, garnering more praise from journalists than any other presidential candidate in the last quarter-century, according to a new analysis of almost 500 news stories released today by the Center for Media and Public Affairs.

"It's not just that John Kerry has gotten better press than President Bush before this election, he's gotten better press than anyone else since 1980. That's significant," said Bob Lichter, director of the D.C.-based nonpartisan research group.

"Kerry also got better press than anyone else in the days before the primaries as well," Mr. Lichter added.

In October alone, Mr. Kerry had a "record-breaking 77 percent positive press evaluations," compared with 34 percent positive for Mr. Bush, the study states.

Unprecedented, untrammeled accolades for Mr. Kerry were more than debate-related bounce, however. Since Labor Day, he also had a total of 58 percent positive stories, with just 36 percent for Mr. Bush.

1 I read an interesting article by a local hack that supports Kerry. Unsurprisingly (to borrow a word), the writer admitted that he didn't know where Kerry stood on a laundry list of issues.

But he didn't care. And, he admitted that the Press should have pushed Kerry for answers and/or positions. But the Press didn't.

And he didn't care.

5 Saw a Democrat ad on TV yesterday (Sunday, two days before the election): "George Bush and the Draft."

The ad said that the Army wasn't filling its enlistment quotas, and since Bush was getting ready to invade Iran and North Korea-- well, obviously Bush was gonna...you know...draftdraftdraft!!!

The fine print at the end said the group responsible (now *there's* a primo oxymoron!) was "WinBackRespect.org" (I think, maybe .com).

If I didn't already know the Left's tactics so well I'd be shocked by this. After all, the draft scare--including a bill to resurrect it--was entirely done by Dems, before the GOP finally woke up and forced an open vote that slapped the damn thing down 400 to zip. Even the bill's author didn't vote for it! But this doesn't stop these rat-bastards from using the draft scare to ensure draft-age voters vote Dem.

7 sf: I have a couple of questions, to be certain I understand you:

1. We are or are not meeting the quotas for voluntary enlistments? If we are not, is that responsible for the auditor's conclusion that due to current manpower shortages, 20% of our infantry divisions would be reported as unfit for duty?

2. If we are not able to replenish the armed forces via volunteers, and over 60% of current infantry and Marines have refused to re-up, where are we to get the troops to maintain even a minimal force in Iraq? More "back-door" draft - which has already caught more than 10,000 men and women who thought their tours were finished?

3. Did or did not the bin Laden family fly out as the first civilian flights cleared after 9-11?
Were or were not several of them thus made unavailable even for interview by the FBI?

If you would most kindly post your answers to these few questions, I might better be able to grasp why you believe as you do - although it is quite clear already that you believe things that are untrue, it would be most instructive to find exactly WHAT, other than that the "liberal media" and I are out to screw you - those things are.

8 Conley T. Gwinn,

Do you have references for those assertions? Specifically 1 and 2.

Wait until you see what happens to re-enlistment rates when Kerry is prez.

I hope Kerry wins. I'm going to enjoy watching him get reamed the next 4 years.
