Gary Comer paid for this full-page ad, which ran in today’s edition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Gary Comer - Founder of Lands’ End wrote:

Undecided Voters of Wisconsin

My credential for writing and paying for this ad are that I created thousands of jobs in three cities in southwest Wisconsin during my tenure as leader of Dodgeville’s Lands’ End. I no longer am an owner of that company, but I founded it.

And I have the greatest respect for Wisconsin people who built that company with me. Together we put it on the list of the 100 Best Companies to work for in America. The values and work ethic and honest of Wisconsin people made Land’s End a success.

Knowing your character I understand the loyalties which conflict so many of you in the Presidential race. I have been a Republican and voted Republican most of my life. But in my opinion, this administration has high-jacked the Republican Party I knew and is taking Wisconsin and the United States in dangerous directions. If Bush is re-elected, you and your children and grandchildren and mine will pay dearly in their freedoms and opportunities long after his term of office expires. I believe that four more years of President Bush and the people who surround him is not in our Nation's best interest.

You could very well be the deciding factor in the electoral outcome of this election. Think carefully, vote your heart and head. I think of the debt that we will leave ourselves and everyone who follows, and I question the judgment that caused the deaths of 1100 U.S. friends and neighbors in a war that we didn't need to start.

Cottonstien. He is pissed and he will get even.

Sorry Bilbo. I never would have bought it if I had known you'd hate it so much.
Though I'm thrilled with the message that Pennsylvania is leaning our way, can anyone tell me what's wrong with this paragraph?
The NYTimes: With only 72 hours until the polls begin opening, Pennsylvania, with 21 electoral votes, appeared to be trending Mr. Kerry's way, with most but not all opinion surveys showing him ahead by about three percentage points. Mr. Bush has failed to dent the four suburban Philadelphia counties, whose liberal attitudes on social issues like abortion and gun control have overshadowed their economic conservatism.

Thanks for the nice comments on my pumpkin expressionism.
I know it's not a perfect likeness but these giant gnats have been feasting on it so, they know who it is.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog in Spin Alley after the 3rd debate, to Karl Rove.

"You're Bush's brain Karl. I was expecting a much smaller man."
Bush quietly signs his own Walking Papers

WASHINGTON - Without fanfare, President Bush Friday signed into law a bill containing nearly $140 billion in corporate tax cuts denounced by critics on both sides of the aisle as a giveaway to special interests.

Bush signed the measure into law aboard Air Force One en route to a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, forgoing a public signing ceremony that would have attracted attention to the tax cuts less than two weeks before Election Day. The bill has been heavily criticized by both Democratic presidential rival John Kerry and Republican Sen. John McCain, among others.

The White House had marked the signing of Bush's other major tax bills with lavish public ceremonies. This one was marked with a one-paragraph statement by the press secretary.

Asked why there was no signing ceremony for the corporate tax bill, White House spokeswoman Claire Buchan said: "There are a variety of ways the president signs legislation."

Yeah, sometimes "G. W." sometimes "George W." sometimes no W at all. But he always puts in a a hefty dose of greed and corruption in everything he signs.
Don't let this go quietly. Tell everyone!

Oct. 22, 2004 | Friday night brings to a conclusion the fiercest media battle of the presidential campaign, when 40 of the Sinclair Broadcast Group's 62 stations nationwide air a special program about the media and Vietnam War POWs. The show is likely to include generous portions of an anti-Kerry attack film, "Stolen Honor," that Sinclair executives had originally intended to air in its entirety just days before the election. In the face of lawsuits by stockholders, loss of advertising, questions about its abuse of the public airwaves and a falling stock price, however, Sinclair quickly cobbled together a revised program.

I know it's not total victory but, I think my e-mail to Corona must have really scared them. In the face of losing my business, they put the screws to SBG, I just know it. Thank you Corona, we're still friends.

Happy Autumn!
Vote Democrat!

Commentator Pam Varkony sounds like a lovely woman and I hope she is enjoying her right to free speech and being able to use it to criticize the President. Since she is voting her fear over her values and morals she should not be surprised when her rights are whittled down and her friends are afraid to stand up for her.

A Ethics Committee made up of 50% Republicans and 50% Democrats unanimously decided that Tom DeLay needed to have his hands slapped publicly, for the 3rd time.
The guy tried to sell his support of a candidate.
He sold his time and attention to the highest bidder under the guise of fundraising.
DeLay is for sale and he pretty much says, That's the way things are done.
"For years, Democrats have hurled relentless personal attacks at me, hoping to tie my hands and smear my name. All have fallen short, not because of insufficient venom, but because of insufficient merit."

So you can buy DeLay's Public Service, like Westar did, and if anyone complains, it's a personal attack.
"He fights hard" says Hastert.
"part of his work" says Mollohan.

There's that "hard work" the prez was talking about.
Ask any prostitute. Whoring yourself is hard work.

I keep hearing that there's no indication that we would get more assistance from other countries (in IRAQ) if Kerry is elected. No President or Prime Minister has come out and said "We're not lifting a finger to help the U. S. out of this cluster fuck until they get rid of that moron Bush." And thank God they haven't because the spin on that would be devastating. But... isn't this a, not so subtle, message to that effect? Come on, the timing couldn't be more pointed!

Poland said that it aims to withdraw all of its 2,500 troops from Iraq (news
web sites) during the course of next year, a major disappointment for Washington
which sees Warsaw as one of its staunchest allies in Iraq.

Of course, I read the news at BottleofBlog, it's not one of the headlines on any of the news sources I have on my homepage, (Reuters, AP, MSNBC, Washington Post, NY Times and the Oklahoman) so who's going to get the message? I know B-o-B has a lot of readers but I don't think many of them are the Republicans that need to know this shit.
