Only in America... the Dixie Chicks album debuts at #1 on the Billboard Album Chart (the whole chart, not the country chart, mind you), and Our Liberal Media claims they've been "Bush-Whacked." :wtf: :wtf: :wtf: Isn't this article a bit of a stretch?? LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Country trio the Dixie Chicks, the darlings of Nashville until their singer criticized President Bush three years ago, opened at No. 1 on the U.S. charts on Wednesday with their first studio album since then, but sales ...

The New York Times article about soldier's families is a must-read.
(Image) A photograph on a memorial card shows Mr. Youngblood holding Hunter before departing for Iraq. How can we allow this to continue in our names?????

Schneider, in his wrap-up of the story, says this story causes serious political problems for the President, even if his authorization of the leak was not criminal. He says it damages his political credibility in every possible way, mainly because he insisted to the press (Sep '03) that he would get to the bottom of "any leak" and that "any leakers" would be fired. Schneider says "the political outlook for the President is grim." He's speaking now of the horribly low poll numbers, and says Bu...

I added this for one reason: Don't miss William Pitt's excellent, original post about Tom Delay's departure, titled, "He's Gone"
I always feel just a little bit better when the big guys fall. Last time I felt this, I don't know, satisfied was when the Clinton impeachment cost Newt Gingrich his job. I think post on this is priceless.

I was just a little kid, living in the suburbs of Dayton, Ohio. It was a gorgeous afternoon, wasn't it? I remember so clearly playing in the front yard, all the neighborhood kids outside on one of the first nice days of spring... And then the sky turned this eery green color. Once you've seen that color, and the clouds which turn into clusters of overfilled, greenish-black pillows, you'll never forget it, and recognize it the next time you see the strangeness of it... It was a terrifying da...

This audience is so cherry-picked... not as bad as some of his other coached crowds, but it still looks like they had to bus them in. Anyone watching? Up now, a question from a Clevelander who wants to know "how we can help you explain your message to the grassroots." :eyes:

Ohio Senate Race: Latest Poll has Dewine(R) 51%, Brown (D) 35%
... northern and central Ohio. Only 23% of those polled reside in southwestern Ohio (defined by the pollster as Cincinnati/Dayton). 77% of those polled live in Cuyahoga, Northeast, Columbus/Southeast, and Toledo Northwest! That's troubling, because you'd think Brown would have done better in a poll that didn't really include southwestern Ohio, where he has no name recognition. It's also shocking that Mike Dewine has relatively high favorables (51%). We're in a heap of trouble, Ohio.

Salon has published an extensive photo and video gallery, along with a timeline accompanied by essays. It's a staggering piece, if you ask me. (Link)/ Today Salon presents an archive of 279 photos and 19 videos of Abu Ghraib abuse first gathered by the CID, along with information drawn from the CID's own timeline of the events depicted. As we reported Feb. 16, Salon's Mark Benjamin recently acquired extensive documentation of the CID investigation -- including this photo archive and timeline ...

Well, this article is sure to stir up some flames. A few paragraphs that really caught my eye: In late November, Hackett got a call from Sen. Harry Reid. “I hear there’s a photo of you mistreating bodies in Iraq. Is it true?” demanded the Senate minority leader. “No sir,” replied Hackett. To drive home his point, Hackett traveled to Washington to show Reid’s staff the photo in question. Hackett declined to send me the photo, but he insists that it shows another Marine—not Hackett—unloading a...

Also here, from outstudent101: (Link) The NY Times is reporting that Paul Hackett has . No word yet on Hackett's possible run for the 2nd District. The Mayor's office . Someone needs to improve communication channels. A toast to Paul Hackett. (Image) May there be peace in the Ohio Forum.

I'm speaking of the vitriol we're engaged in over the Hackett-Brown race, and I'm starting to wonder if we really do live in two different states. Now, I'm down here in the hardcore, conservative, red-state hell of OH-2, Cincinnati specifically, where it appears Paul Hackett retains much of his support. Not all of the posters in this forum have profiles, but in order to gauge where we're coming from, is there any support for Hackett north of Columbus? I get the feeling that the state is prett...

OK, everyone, I just received the most hilarious phone call from one of my friends, KC, in San Francisco. 100% true, and it just happened tonight. KC and his friend decided to get some crab, so they went to Nonna Rose Seafood in Fisherman's Wharf. They wanted one of the outside tables, waited a few minutes, and were seated. Just after they sat down, they heard a gruff man at the table next to them complaining to his waiter. "I thought you said I'd get some privacy here," he complained. "We...

Oh, how exciting!! KEEP IT UP, everyone... we are really, really making waves now! Here's the online version; the print version appeared on the front page of today's Enquirer! Do be prepared for the Enquirer's version, in a sidebar, of why we're all nuts. :eyes: Excerpt: WASHINGTON - You thought the presidential election was over in Ohio? President Bush, Sen. John Kerry, the Ohio secretary of state, and both national and state Democratic and Republican parties certainly think so. But o...

It ended the way it began. There's a lot to be said for being an Ohioan these days. The entire country makes fun of our lone Great Lake, our weather, our location, our sports teams, our perceived hick lameness, and, of course, Cleveland. But, if you're a political junkie, the kind who travels to Iowa in the early winter of a presidential election year just for fun, there was just nothing like Ohio in the fall of 2004. It's about time we felt this pampered by the candidates, this adored, this...

I'm just too high on the new ticket to be upset today. DU can be discouraging and uplifting at the same time... it's de rigeur for the Big Tent Set! Sometimes you have to dig a little deep, but here are a few positive threads (including a few started by yours truly), about the Ohio Kerry-Edwards rallies, that lifted my heart today. Lift your spirits and read on, rene moon!!!!

Hey everyone!! First of all... is my account of our experience at the Kerry-Edwards Rally in Dayton, Ohio yesterday, July 7, 2004. I didn't ask my mom for permission to post this photo, so if she's mad, I hope she forgives me later. :D Isn't her home-made hat the coolest?? Isn't she GORGEOUS?? (Image) Volunteer Carolyn T. of Centerville during the campaign stop by Presidential candidate Senator John Kerry. This photo made the FRONT PAGE of the Cincinnati Enquirer today! That's right, a ...

Hello, DUers! Yesterday, I attended the Kerry-Edwards rally in Dayton, Ohio with my mother, fellow DUer Kukesa. This is my lengthy account, but it was such a wonderful, historic day that I hope I can help interested DUers feel as though they were right there with us! Mom is active in the Dayton Kerry campaign, and secured us spots as official volunteers at the event. Although the Senators weren't scheduled to appear until 4:30, volunteers were to be at the event by noon. We arrived at the s...
