Elections coming up and the spin slings

Next week it is, although many have voted already via absentee or early vote procedures.

WorldNetDaily: Mideast terror leaders to U.S.: Vote Democrat is an interview that makes an endorsement worth considering.

Kerry suggests troops lazy, not bright is a brief description of a faux pas that received a lot of attention because it was a clear symbol of long standing ‘attitudes’ and generated a response from the troops that had many rolling on the floor with laughter.

Tigerhawk also notes a New York Times story just out

So, the New York Times is quoting “experts,” apparently approvingly, who say that Saddam Hussein was as little as a year away from building an atom bomb. This is offered in support of the proposition that the Bush administration acted recklessly when it published captured Iraqi documents that describe that country’s WMD programs, because those documents might be used by any other lame-o country to build WMD.

Wait a minute. Iraq had WMD programs?!? Iraq was “on the verge of building an atom bomb, as little as a year away”? You’re ‘shittin’ me! And here I thought Bush lied.

And then there is the FUD mongering over the election. Diebold is protesting an HBO show because of its portrayal of hacking electronic voting machines. WaPo complains about dirty tactics when the public record of performance in office is aired but then seems to enjoy trying to dig up sealed divorce records.

Meanwhile the Rodney Dangerfield economy is showing numbers like a new high in employment while stocks are at record highs (but don’t tell the MSM).

And, in Nevada, a candidate for governor is having trouble finding the right equipment to show security video records to clear him of allegations made.

Trying to get to the bottom of it might seem so difficult but then, a bit of proper skepticism and intellectual integrity in inspecting the whole scene can go a long way.
