CBS reporter Richard Schlesinger interviewed by INDC about the debunked "bush is going to reinstate the draft" emails.

Schlesinger: "The fact is, they were going around. I know several people that got them, and it's gotten people all riled up. Whether or not there's any reality to there being a draft, is almost besides the point. Do I think there's going to be a draft? No. But it's an issue that people are talking about."
Emphasis mine.

Yep... people are talking about it, and we need to keep 'em talking. We've only got a month after all.

He later said there was it was completely coincidental that CBS did everything they could do to squash the Swift Boat Veterans and pump up the Bush TNG service bru-ha-ha. He then, in what can only be described as a BDS Tourette spasm blurted out: "We will crush that ChimpyBush like the dirty little Nazi cockroach he is!!!

Rekha Basu Pool Anyone?

After reading Rekha's column today, I have a suggestion for Iowa bloggers. It's pretty simple...

Let's predict what lame and debunked Democrat talking point Rekha will use as the foundation for her column. Today it's the silly rumor about Bush's evil plot to reinstate the draft.

But Harkin's press secretary, Maureen Knightly, says it's the path Bush is inevitably heading us down. "If George W. Bush is re-elected, there's no guarantee of what could happen - particularly as the National Guard and reservists are being stretched so thin, and re-extended," she said.

Could it come to that?

If it does, the Iraq war will start to look a lot more like Vietnam. And imagine what that could set off in an America already deeply divided by the war, and just about everything else
Tom Harkin's press secretary - now there's a reliable source. I wonder if Rekha asked a follow up question regarding Harkin's "service" in Vietnam?

Thirty-three days and counting until Basu Baffelment begins in earnest. I can't wait.

redrob, redrob

Borsellino (what a shock) feels a certain kinship with the Communist Party of America and chairman [Sam Webb].
...he compared this election to the 1860 vote involving the end of slavery and - one last time - he blamed large corporations for all the ills of the world.

Overall, he was pretty good at getting his message across.

I left there thinking that it's sad that the Communist Party does a better job than the Democrats when it comes to speaking up for Social Security and pointing out the failings of the Republicans.
Hmmm... looks like Rob wants a real choice.

This was my favorite:

He was careful not to use the word communist - he calls it "socialism."
Just like you Rob are careful not to call it socialist... you call it progressive.

Moonbat Basu in Full Howling Splendor

This may be it. This may be the most lame, sad and weak column she's ever written. Rekha's column today is so confused... so desperate... such a perfect storm of Kerry Campaign talking points fueled by utter ignorance of American history and character.

Last week, Britain's Guardian newspaper ran poll results showing 71 percent of the British - including members of Prime Minister Tony Blair's own party - want a date for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq.
Al-Guardian eh? Makes me wonder just a little bit about the survey methodology. And the "members of Tony Blair's own party..." are liberal Labor party members, for God's sake.

And you know, the British people understand (as do the people in the rest of Europe) that the U.S. is the real hammer in Iraq and in the War on Terror in general. They can afford to be pacifists... no worries, the cop is on the beat.

That's the opposite of U.S. voters, a majority of whom say we should stay
as long as it takes - even though most don't believe President Bush has a clear
Rekha, you have part of it right. The majority of the American people do not want another Vietnam. Specifically, they do not want another "walk away from the job" defeat.

I believe that this is an honest mistake on your part. You'll never understand Jacksonian America. As the child of United Nations aparachiks you just don't have a frame of reference.

We must be so peculiar to you. You know that we're good folks. How can we believe such awful, reactionary things? We must be taught.

And so - away we go - faulty intelligence, no WMD (yeah... right), Abu Ghraib, Richard Clark, Paul O'Neil, should be going after al-Qaida, Joseph Wilson/Valery Plame. It's all about the oil!!!

Pay no attention to the Rathergate. It was an honest mistake. Listen to Kofi... he knows what's best.

Oh Rekha, you poor thing. Maybe on November 3rd, you and Rob will find yourselves in such liberal disappointment and disillusionment that you'll decide to leave Iowa to live in your beloved Europe.

Bush re-elected - Rob and Rekha gone. Man, that would be some twofer!
