Now they are tearing up little girls' signs.

Democrats accused of ripping Bush signs

By Robert Stacy McCain

A West Virginia man said yesterday that Democrats stole his family's Bush-Cheney campaign signs at an event featuring Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. John Edwards.
"They just pounced on us," said Phil Parlock, who took his 11-year-old son, Alex, and 3-year-old daughter, Sophia, to the Democratic rally at Tri-State Airport in Huntington, W.Va.
Sophia became briefly famous yesterday when an Associated Press photo showing her in tears after Democrats tore her sign to pieces was posted on Matt Drudge's Web site, www.drudgereport.com. (http://www.drudgereport.com.)

Who takes their 3 year old to a Democratic rally and gives her a Bush/Cheney sign to hold? What an idiot. I don't condone the sign ripping but it was predictable and avoidable.

"Immediately, he said, the family was set upon by supporters of Mr. Edwards and Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry "mostly the painters union guys" "

Predictable indeed. Union goons honing their skills for the next strike.....

Not really political, but a clue why people are turning to FOX news:


Brit Hume had a bit on his "Special Report" last night about a new television ad from Moveon.org, the 527 group financed by that shadowy Hungarian-born international financier who, by the way, hates George Bush.

The television ad shows a picture of an AK47 automatic rifle. The ad says "This ... can fire up to 300 rounds a minute. ... In the hands of a terrorist it could kill hundreds ... But on September 13th George bush will [have] let the assault weapons ban expire."

Hume then points out that this particular gun has been banned in the U.S. since the Firearms Act was passed in 1934. They are banned today. You can't own one without a special and very hard-to-get permit from the feds.

So, Moveon.org lied. But that's not the news here. We already know that Moveon.org lies in their PAC ads. The news here is that you heard about this from Fox News Channel. You can bet your right to Social Security payments (might as well bet something of no real value) that you would never see The New York Times, the Boston Globe, CBS, NBC, ABC or CNN ever report this particular story.

Fox News did, and that's why liberals hate Fox News so much. Just reporting that Moveon.org has an adverse relationship with the truth is proof of bias.

Now Mr. Kerry accuses President Bush of "secret plans". Well, first of all, if they are secret how does Mr. Kerry know of them? I suppose Dan Rather found document stating that the President has secret plans. Stay tuned - it's gonna be interesting to see what they come up with next. Is this the strategy of the clinton team that just came on board? They're out of practice, or they're saving up for hillary in '08.

Kerry Accuses Bush of Hiding Troops Plan

Sep 17, 5:30 PM (ET)


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Democratic Sen. John Kerry on Friday accused the Bush administration of hiding a plan to mobilize more National Guard and Reserve troops after the election while glossing over a worsening conflict in Iraq.

"He won't tell us what congressional leaders are now saying, that this administration is planning yet another substantial call-up of reservists and Guard units immediately after the election," Kerry said. "Hide it from people through the election, then make the move."

The White House called the allegation of a secret plan "completely irresponsible ... false and ridiculous." The Pentagon said troop replacements would include some from National Guard and Reserve units and those expected to be sent to Iraq had been notified.
