These links have already been heavily blogged but it won't hurt to post them again.

More Marines in Iraq are frustrated and question the policy, as much as they can, of Dear Leader.

Abolutely perfect video on the Adminstration goons. Set to very appropriate music and lyrics. You'll laugh if you're not a Repug.

More scary Seymour Hersh revelations of war crimes in Iraq.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch follow-up on some of the participants in the 2nd debate and their decisions, if any.

Pretty fair, I thought, AP article on where the candidates stand.

At the end of last month, I talked to a friend of mine in Arkansas who is a Democratic organiser. He said in so many words that Kerry had abandoned and conceded the state, which is also what I read online. But this poll shows that Kerry and Bush are virtually tied in the state. I hope Kerry reopens the campaign there. The state's basically populist, because so poor, but is suceptible to the Elmer Gantry brand of RR demagoguery, hence the preacher-governor's power. But traditional Repugs aren't much there, except in the Northwest part of the state; and the Republican scion (whose Daddy, to be fair, was great for a Republican), Winthrop Rockefeller, still manages to be a non-entity.

Grover "The Greatest Generation Hates America" Norquist, the face and voice of the True Believer and therefore of "divisiveness", let out one hell of a whopper last year that people are smartly resurrecting. Via The Poor Man.
