Encouraging Signs of Kerry Win

Jesse Ventura endorses Kerry

Former CIA Director Tenet - Iraq War Wrong.

Tom DeLay subpoenaed, aides trial postponed. DeLay and GOP threatening ethics committee (also Bush's War on the Poor in the Daily Progress Report.)

Bush aides call minister Pat Robinson a liar for saying Bush said there would be no U.S. casualties in Iraq.

Latest AP Poll has Kerry with 3% lead

Washington abuzz about a new engaged first lady, more parties!

Bush suppresses damning CIA report, Now postponed with other negative reports of his administration until after the election. Feith outed for exagerating, skewing CIA claims.

More Iraqi insurgents, better strategies, more money, few foreign ties. Encouraging for Kerry in election, discouraging for solving Bush's Iraq mess.

Krugman: Kerry leads, a narrow Bush win depends on disenfranchisement of voters

Dowd: Bush's blind faith makes him blind to casualties.

The 'non-reality states' Study finds Bush supporters suppressing knowledge of basic facts to support Bush They still think there were WMDs, were Saddam links to 9/11, to al-Qaeda, that the world supported the war, more statistics.

"The roots of the Bush supporters' resistance to information," according to Steven Kull, "very likely lie in the traumatic experience of 9/11 and equally in the near pitch-perfect leadership that President Bush showed in its immediate wake. This appears to have created a powerful bond between Bush and his supporters--and an idealized image of the President that makes it difficult for his supporters to imagine that he could have made incorrect judgments before the war, that world public opinion could be critical of his policies or that the President could hold foreign policy positions that are at odds with his supporters."
Truth will come out and seep in.
