If the choice for President weren't already clear, here's a question: How come Michael Moore, John Kerry, and Osama Bin Laden use the same set of talking points, as even The Washington Post was constrained to notice? He even gets in a little dig about the whole Moore/Kerry "My Pet Goat" issue.

Read the statement for yourself. It isn't directed against John Kerry, or even against both Bush and Kerry -- it's directed against Presidents George H.W. and George W. B ush. And then, in effect, Osama Bin Laden offers the United States a non-aggression pact. He says he's angry with us because of "transgressions and the coalition between Americans and the Israelis against our people in Palestine and Lebanon." And that's why the towers came down. So presumably, if we do nothing to anger him, he'll do nothing to come after us. He's asking us to be more "sensitive," a little more like Sweden.

Well, we could do that. We could elect Kerry, and terror could become a second-tier issue again -- a "nuisance," a law enforcement matter. In the meantime, Osama Bin Laden and his henchmen would gather strength and technology, obtain a nuclear bomb, and then be able to dictate the terms of America's foreign policy.

Or we can keep fighting, as President Bush wants us to do. We can keep OBL on the run so that all he can do is keep making these offers from some cave, probably in an inaccessible area of Pakistan. We can continue to prosecute the war on terror as if it is a war.

Ask yourself and your friends: What do you think George Washington would advise? What would Abraham Lincoln want? How would Ronald Reagan proceed? These are not men who were willing to compromise with evil. Nor should we be.

----------------------------------------------------

Yes, the polls look close and the MSM's cheerleading for Kerry is palpable. For a reality check, read this. No one is condoning any Labor Department employee wasting time on political analysis -- but John Kerry is poorly positioned to complain about it, since under his "big government" vision of society, government would be doing just about everything else.

This is also important -- though, again, it's likely to be overlooked or dismissed by MSM, just as the Swift Boat vets (true American heroes) have been. The nub? "Documents have been uncovered at Texas Tech University that show Kerry was following Vietnam War protest guidelines from North Vietnamese communists in the early 1970s." And these -- unlike Dan Rather's documents -- have already been authenticated.

And for a little something different, here's a little something about one of the best journalists out there today.

Carol,

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your work on this weblog. I don't often comment anywhere, but as a now daily visitor I felt I had to tell you how enjoyable and entertaining this site is. Keep up the good work.
