74% of Bush voters favor gay marriage or civil unions

DLC: Democrats Loving Corporations
The Democratic Leadership Council's addiction to contributions from Philip Morris, Texaco, and Merck is proof enough that its "centrism" is really a naked corporate agenda.

Molly Ivins - The Reality-Based Environment
Bush denying global warming is another of his delusions.

Swift Boat Liars to Continue
Swift Boat Veterans for Truth raised $27.2 million, Franke said, most of it

election night by a Republican polling firm found that the swift boat veterans'
ads were far more recognizable and had more impact than ads of pro-Kerry groups.
