PTS is back !

. . . and boy are we pi**ed!

Back from a little R & R and immediately this piece of awful sludge came to the surface in the

AGN yesterday. CLICK HERE

In reviewing the RNC convention, a cross-dressing of moderation, the AGN says that the 'good' was Texas' delegation behaved, the 'bad' was that Kerry dared to be fed up with Bush's friend's, the swift boat liars (It's Kerry's fault, a fav repub talking point), and the 'ugly' was interrupting protestors (drat that first amendment!).

Get it folks?  All is sweet golden light with the R's. 
Delegates didn't wear purple heart bandages mocking Kerry's war wounds.
Zell didn't froth at those calling American forces in Iraq "Occupiers"
(Even though Bush has routinely described the situation in Iraq as an "occupation").

Cheney didn't use the sensitive laugh line after he himself detailed the need for
"sensitivity" in chechnya-esque Iraq, and Bush didn't rehash EVERY ONE of his
2000 campaign promises even after being in office 3 years and having control of
congress and the supreme court.

In fact, the RNC con job was a litany of easily proven falsehoods. Starting with
Bush's disgusting minions denying they were standing on the dead bodies of OUR
brothers and sisters who died for politics. Bush wouldn't use national tragedy
for political reason. Except for the pictures of Bush on Airforce one on 9-11,
yours for just a $100 donation. Other than that, no sirree.

Why the continuous lying from the right? Because they know they can. Because
they know papers like the AGN no longer do "fact checking." Only Repubs live in
the panhandle anyway, don't ya know.?

This election is between the hate, fear, war, and greed crowd vs. the hope, security,
freedom, and prosperity crowd.

What happens when you call the Bushistas a bunch of liars?

Well, nanny nanny, you are a liar too.
This is what passes for debate in our paper.
