A Couple of Observations:
IRS moves on MoveOn; phony Snow
First, the Bush administration is losing the 527 funding battle, so it's siccing its IRS on the groups. It wasn't enough for Bush to politicize the military, the EPA, the Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security... now he's gone and politicized the IRS. This time, it's personal.
Meanwhile, your tax dollars pay Treasury Secretary John Snow to traverse the country and spout pro-Bush nonsense.
More Americans are working than ever before, and keeping what they earn more than ever before... all because of the President's tax cuts.What does that even mean? Listen, you want tax cuts? Cut him.

You Might Be a Batshit Crazy Carpetbagger If...
Do you remember that scene in "Kentucky Fried Movie," in the skit called "Catholic High School Girls in Trouble" where the girl says, "Show me your nuts." And the guy, thinking she said, "Show me you're nuts," does some weird little improvisational hand-gesture oddity and makes some funny noises? Well, it seems that Mr. Alan Keyes has come all the way to Illinois just to show us he's nuts:
Now, you think it's a coincidence that on Sept. 11th, 2001, we were struck by terrorists an evil that has at its heart the disregard of innocent human life? We who have for several decades killed not thousands but scores of millions of our own children, in disregard of the principle of innocent human life -- I don't think that's a coincidence, I think that's a warning. I don't think that's a coincidence, I think that's a shot across the bow. I think that's a way of Providence telling us, "I love you all; I'd like to give you a chance. Wake up! Would you please wake up?"
But wait, the Chicago Sun-Times says that he said that on May 7, 2004. That was literally MONTHS before he was a citizen of Illinois, and, obviously, he wouldn't dare make a claim that Osama bin Laden was acting in full compliance with the wishes of the Lord, would he? No, that's something a lunatic would do.
What distinguishes the terrorist from the ordinary warrior, is that the terrorist will consciously target innocent human life. What is done in the course of an abortion? ...Someone consciously targets innocent human life. As I often point out to folks, the evil is the same.
