LOL. You mean the way Clinton never had sexual relations with that woman?
No, actually "reports" are that the Kerry Campaign SAYS they had nothing to
do with it. The jury is still out and I have a feeling some enterprising
reporter will get close to the truth eventually.
Heck, Kerry couldn't be bothered to attend Senate Intelligence committee
meetings 3/4 of the time while he was a member, so why would he bother with
reading the Iraq info? In fact, he was so concerned with intelligence that
you know how many of the four meetings he attended in the year following the
first WTC attack? That's right...none. I guess he feels it's better to be
able to play dumb in case things go wrong "duhhhh....I was only going with
what the President told me".
IIUC there are two kinds of Senate Intelligence meetings. Closed door
during whihc the Senators have access to classified information and
open meetings which are dog and pony shows for the public. Kerry
missed a lot of the dog and pony shows. His attendence record at
the closed sessions is not publicly available.

Slight quibble with your choice of words. Kerry *refuses* to make his
attendance record at the closed sessions known. The chairman of the
committee has indicated he will make the attendance record public, but
[just as with his military records] Kerry must request that the chairman do
so. As most engineering texts will say, "the conclusion is left to the
My only quibble with yours is that I've read more than a few engineering
texts and do not recall reading that in any.
Do you nkow if GWB's discharge papers, equivalent to a DD218 or whatever
it is, have been posted anywhere on the web?
I turned off the debate when they started talking about
"Making America Secure" as if they were interested...
I did love Kerry's statement about the totally uninspected
cargo areas vs. the overly-inspected person/baggage area
on any given passenger flight. One in 25 or 50 is frisked
which means 24-49 in 50 _could_ be carrying weapons.
I couldn't carry my 1-1/2" pocket knife on board but waltzed
right past all the security guards with a 9" sharpened weapon
(a pencil) sticking out of my shirt pocket. One DHS guard's
eyes were within 18" of my weapon at one point and he didn't
say a word. Who's kidding whom about security on flights?
Strong like ox, smart like tractor.
Actually, our representative (Jim Sensenbrenner) has pretty much that
whole "regular guy" thing going on, no false pretenses. "Here's who
I am, here's what I believe, and if you agree with me more than you
disagree with me, I'd like to get your vote" kind of a guy.
Definately "haircut" rather than "hairstyle" there. Not saying he's
Guy has amazing memory. He comes to our Fireman's Picnic every
year to talk to folks. I ran into him elsewhere, completely out of
context, and he greeted me with "Hi Dave, how are things in (home town)?".
I see the guy once a year, and he's got _that_ good of a memory.
(No, I wasn't wearing a nametag or my home town on my jacket or
So, they're not all fakey like the two trying to become pres & VP
at the moment...
I'm glad I don't have to fly any more on a regular basis.
It's got to be a nightmare for the typical "Road Warrior" these days.
My boat yard is less than a mile from the Los Angeles/Long Beach port,
largest container port on the left coast.
The port security just makes you all warm and fuzzy<G>.
