Catch Up - Some Headlines from Today

Either these guys are scared, broke, or incompetent.

I'm guessing a bit of all three.

Bush website blocked outside US:

Surfers outside the US have been unable to visit the official re-election site of President George W Bush.
The blocking of browsers sited outside the US began in the early hours of Monday morning.

Since then people outside the US trying to browse the site get a message saying they are not authorised to view it.

The blocking does not appear to be due to an attack by vandals or malicious hackers, but as a result of a policy decision by the Bush camp.
And you think Americans have a hard time getting anything out of Bush...

From Sludge:



In the last week before the election, ABCNEWS is holding on a videotaped message from a purported al Qaeda terrorist warning of a new attack on America, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

The terrorist claims on tape the next attack will dwarf 9/11. "The streets will run with blood," and "America will mourn in silence" because they will be unable to count the number of the dead. Further claims: America has brought this on itself for electing George Bush who has made war on Islam by destroying the Taliban and making war on Al Qaeda...
No word if the cloaked "terrorist" in the tape was wearing a wire and telling Rove to STFU.

The attempted GOP theft of the election continues apace:

MIAMI (Reuters) - U.S. Postal Service investigators on Wednesday were trying to find thousands of absentee ballots that should have been delivered to voters in one of Florida's most populous counties, officials said.

The issue evoked memories of the polling problems that bedeviled the Florida election in 2000 and which the state has been trying to address before next Tuesday's presidential election, which is again expected to be a very tight race.

Broward deputy supervisor of elections Gisela Salas said 60,000 absentee ballots, accounting for just over 5 percent of the electorate in the county north of Miami, were sent out between Oct. 7 and Oct. 8 to voters who would not be in town on election day.
Now, can we really blame loss of this election on "bad postal service"? I mean, come on. 60,000 absentee ballots?? You know as well as I do that they're in the trunk of someone's car. And the car has a "W04" sticker on it.

I can't wait until the trials start under a Kerry Administration...
