Friday Night FunToons
Pow #1: Cheney's Got a Gun.
Pow #2: Okay, now that you've had your fun, get serious and read Bill Moyer's lastest speech, "Saving Democracy."
Pow #3: Okay, if you're not into reading a long speech right now, just download it for later. Then read this from the Booman Tribune and weep:
The hardline Sunni Clerical Association of Muslim Scholars said 168 Sunni mosques had been attacked, 10 imams killed and 15 abducted since the shrine attack. The Interior Ministry said it could only confirm figures for Baghdad, where 90 mosques were attacked in Baghdad, one cleric was killed, and one abducted.
Officials said at least
110 130200 people had been killed across the country in violence believed triggered by the mosque attack.
Three journalists working for Al-Arabiya television were found dead in Samarra, the site of Wednesday's Askariya mosque attack. Al-Arabiya is viewed in Iraq as favoring the United States.
... The Seattle Times is reporting that
fourseven US soldiers from the 101st Airborne have been killed by an explosive device north of Baghdad.
It's not easy to have fun when our veep is more than quail, our democracy is under constant attack and Iraq is exploding into a savage civil war. We all know this would not be happening if Gore or Dean or even Kerry were president. Think what paper ballots would have meant in Florida in 2000 or Ohio in 2004. Think what paper ballots in every state would mean in 2006 and 2008. You know what to do. Support Vote Trust USA or any other credible election reform organization to support efforts to get a paper ballot measure like New Mexico's adopted in other states. Now.
