Well, Bush may have gotten a slight bounce after the Republican convention, but there's still eight weeks to go before the election, plenty of time for the adults to do a little fact-checking. Slate's Fred Kaplan wrote an article on the truth about Zell Miller's speech, and the truth is, there ain't much truth in it.
The most important thing in this article is the effort to set the record straight on Kerry's Senate votes regarding defense. All my Republican friends who think defense is important should read this article, and especially click on the link about what is actually going on in these votes. And then, all my Republican friends who think honesty is important should ask themselves why the Republican leaders let Miller tell these lies, and why "Fair and Balanced" Fox News has made no effort to clarify that these are lies. They could also ask themselves why that so-called liberal bastion CNN has made no effort to point out that Kerry's defense record has been so grossly distorted. (Answer: CNN is not liberal. Anyone who thinks otherwise should stop believing everything they hear on "The O'Reily Factor.")
Then, my honest Republican friends can ask themselves what else the Republican leadership might have lied about.
Save the Republican Party! Let them know the truth is important to you! Vote Kerry!
