and some cool quotes

these were all found in today's issue of 'the federalist' (www.federalist.com). any conservative folk out there should definitely be reading it, and any liberals reading this could probably use some news from the other side of the political spectrum.

"Freedom is the right to be wrong, not the right to do wrong." --John G. Diefenbaker

"A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away." --Barry Goldwater

"John Kerry was blasted in a new ad by his fellow Vietnam swift boat veterans. ... They dispute his medal-winning heroism. They say John Kerry phonied up his wounds, which if true, would mean that his dependence on ketchup is nothing new." --Argus Hamilton

and then a whole slough of jay leno stuff:

According to The Wall Street Journal, al-Qa'ida's new strategy is to destroy our financial institutions and bring the nation's big businesses and major corporations to their knees. No wait -- I'm sorry that's Ralph Nader's platform. .... A domestic centerpiece of the Republican agenda for the second Bush term is getting rid of the Internal Revenue Service. They want to do away with the IRS. Whew! So I guess they are serious about going after terrorist organizations. .... The Labor Department reported only 32,000 jobs were created last month. 32,000! The Kerrys have more servants than that! .... I'm sure you heard about this -- you know the Kerrys and the Edwards went to Wendy's the other day for lunch -- made a big deal about it. 'We're regular people going to Wendy's...' But when they got back to their bus, they secretly had a gourmet meal delivered from a nearby yacht club. So I guess there really are two Americas...and they don't like the food of the poor one. .... For the first time, John Kerry has criticized President Bush's reaction on 9/11. John Kerry said if he were reading to children at that moment he would have told them he had something important to attend to. Let me tell you something -- if John Kerry was reading to children, first he would have to wake them up. "Kids, I gotta go now...kids?!...kids?!"
