Looks like Burkett was wooed for certain "documents" by Joe Lockhart:
CONTROVERSIAL TEXAS RANCHER SAYS LOCKHART WANTED DOCUMENTS // The source of a disputed CBSNEWS report claimed Thursday that Kerry adviser Joe Lockhart tried to "convince me as to why I should give them the documents." Texas Army National Guard Lt. Col. Bill Burkett tells the FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM that he has suffered four seizures since being identified as CBS' source and dogged by the media... Developing...I haven't felt this giddy since I was a high school kid and the Washington Post was nailing Nixon!
You'll be shocked to hear this one - Rekha Basu thinks that beauty pageants are bad, bad, bad.
So the Young Women's Resource Center has decided it's fight-back time. It's holding what it calls the Anti-Pageant.Yeah... you get to be the judge... unless Rekha gets her way and the "gov'mint" gets to tax fattening food like they do cigarettes.
On Oct. 22 at Drake University's Morehouse Ballroom you can hear community leaders talk about their personal journeys to love their bodies, imperfections and all. [My God... I'd rather drink molten lead. Ed.] Among the 20 local women who've been invited to share are Lt. Gov. Sally Pederson, first lady Christie Vilsack, KCCI-TV news anchor Jeannette Trompeter, Kitty Weston-Knauer, the principal of Scavo High School, and a few columnists at this newspaper. It's from 7 to 8:30 p.m., and it's free.
They'll talk about resisting the bombardment of ad images and the lure of fad diets. The underlying message, says organizer Joy Esposito: "I get to be the judge of my body."
Oh... and the Register Editorial board stays on it's Kerry-booster monotone, serving as an echo chamber for the the big boy liberal rags. It begins thus:
For a long time, the spin on the news from Iraq was that the American public wasn't getting the full story, that reports dwelling on the daily bombings, ambushes and killing masked all the good things happening.Well... at least the ground where New York Times hacks and stringers are spinning news to chaos to influence the election.
Now it appears that, if anything, the picture Americans got from Iraq was too rosy. The situation on the ground increasingly looks to be far worse than previously believed.
Finally, the same REB is sniffing for more state revenues from the tobacco companies.
What were the Justice Department lawyers smoking that they thought the tobacco-subsidizing, tax-reaping, afraid-to-ban-cigarettes government has any moral standing to complain about the behavior of the tobacco companies?Emphasis mine. The US Government should ban cigarettes???
I know what you REB moonbats are smoking.
