: Technorati just launched Politics.Technorati.com with the latest from bloggers left and right (and I’m gratified to see that I’m both left and right).

    By the way Jeff, you should really answer this already (it’s from another thread, but it spiraled off on tangents, so here it is):
    Jeff, answer the question when you get a chance: Why are you – as a hawk on terror- voting for Kerry, given his dreadful selections of advisors in Berger and Wilson (who would most likely have held positions in Kerry’s govt in the event of election if they hadn’t been exposed)
    Jeff, please tell us why you feel Kerry would do a better job on Terror?

    maybe it’s because Kerry wouldn’t have gone on a month-long vacation after getting a CIA daily report entitled Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US?

    or maybe because Kerry wouldnt have spent $200 billion invading a country that didnt have anything to do with 9/11, or maybe because Kerry isn’t in bed with Haliburton, or maybe because Kerry isn’t trying to finish wars that his daddy started?
    by the way Bush tried to get Kissinger to head up the 9/11 committee, so you can end this business of Kerry being the only person who picks less-than-desireable people to surround himself with. newsflash, Trump: there’s bad people all over DC.
    come november there will be one less in the white house.

    Watch out, here comes that tireless voice of reason tony pierce, answering questions he wasn’t asked. Outlining talking points that have already been dismissed as dribble, but that doesn’t matter to him. Keep up the fight tony, someday you’ll make a quality argument.

  • trump

    Ah, Toony has his F9/11 talking points memo!
    Answer the question Jeff.

  • http://www.tonypierce.com tony

    which of those points were dismissed as dribble? by whom?
    are you going to tell me that kissinger would have done a better job on the 9/11 commission?
    are you going to tell me that Bush *didnt* spend $200 billion invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11?
    are you going to tell me that Bush isnt in bed with Haliburton?
    or are you going to tell me that none of the above has anything to do with “terror”?
    i wait eagerly for your snappy reply.

    are you going to tell me that kissinger would have done a better job on the 9/11 commission
    My point concerns who Kerry chooses as his top advisors. Your point concerns some appointment to a bi-partisian comission. Straw, meet man.
    are you going to tell me that Bush *didnt* spend $200 billion invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11?
    As part of the war on terror, it was a valid target. And as the 9/11 report showed, Al Qeada and Iraq had pretty good ties, even though not regarding 9/11. Afghanistan = avenging 9/11. Iraq= part of the broader war on terror “draining the swamp”. Your 2nd strawman has been duly noted, discredited, and now ignored.
    are you going to tell me that Bush isnt in bed with Haliburton?
    Yes I am. I am also demanding you back up your claim.
    I eagerly await your sloppy reply

    i bow to your rebuttal of shameless ignorance.
    if you are serious that kissinger would have kept the 9/11 report bipartisan, if you can say with a straight face that the $200 billion pricetag to invade iraq despite its lack of involvement in 9/11 was worthwhile, and if you can seriously imply that it was a mere coincidence that haliburton (who Cheney was the CEO of from 1995-2000) was the big profit-winner of the war on iraq thanks to their no-bid contract,
    then maybe you see why jarvis doesnt waste his time with your ridiculous question.

  • trump

    if you are serious that kissinger would have kept the 9/11 report bipartisan,- who cares, it’s not even remotely related to my point, go off on a tangent with someone else thanks if you can say with a straight face that the $200 billion pricetag to invade iraq despite its lack of involvement in 9/11 was worthwhile, I just did. You seem to be having trouble separating 9/11 vs terrorism. Do some reading and get back to me and if you can seriously imply that it was a mere coincidence that haliburton (who Cheney was the CEO of from 1995-2000) was the big profit-winner of the war on iraq thanks to their no-bid contract well, since you offer no proof to show me otherwise, I guess that’s so.
    You see Tony, you are the classic liberal. You spew bile-filled responses to what was a very reasonable question I asked Jeff (JEFF ANSWER THE DAMN QUESTION ALREADY) without any proof to back up what you say.
    Let me know when you’re ready to interact with the adults, ok?

    An on-topic reply, for a change:
    Has anyone noticed that Technorati doesn’t work, at all? It’s always been spotty, but it’s been dead for the last couple hours, at least. You’d think the “re-launch” would’ve meant more reliability, but I guess not.
