We all should care. The Bush Administration is making a mockery of democracy and the Constitution.

Karl Rove & Robert Novak should serve jail time.

How are they making a mockery?  She is not an agent, just an officer.  There was nothing illegal about Karl Rove saying that Wilson's wife worked there. According to sources from the media he only stated that and not her name.  To be against the law he would have to know for fact and willingly give up her identity.

I know several people who work at the CIA as officers.  It is not illegal for me to say they work there.  This is just a way to get people to try to get rid of one of the best political minds for the Republicans.  He was very successful.  I can understand the dislike from the left, but come on you all are trying so hard to make someone so guilty without it even being proven.  The media like they do in most cases where there are accusations tilt the coverage one way or the other.  How can would be lawyers take such sides when it should be objective in the eyes of the law.  How are you going to write law exams and answer questions in class about policy if you are not open minded. 

What if the medie focused on things about progress? 

Chicago will offer more opportunities and it is in a city that is a lot more fun than Ithaca.  Cornell is definitely not as good.  Forget about the lease and start looking in Chicago!  ;D

U Chicago would get my vote.

Welcome JDmaster,

I think that Apple iWork is a stellar program.  I have it on mine.  I would bid on that program because it is at such a low price 51 now at a 79 retail plus tax.  You cannot beat that.  I already have it but I highly recommend it.  I think Apple Comps are AWESOME.

Here is my favorite fact about the election and Bush Supporters:

More rich people in the blue states and they are not friendly to businesses.  Such a shame!

Oh yeah, since we are going to law school for those interested, this website is great for papers and information on tax law.  Not sure if people are interested but it makes for good statistics and empirical data on taxes and tax policy.

Well Florida was over 300,000 votes.  A lot more than the 500 or so from 2000

Oh there was a net gain in Congress and Senate for Republicans.  Getting closer to the filibuster-free Senate.  Republicans took out Daschle (key victory). 

Oh yeah, New Jersey was a surprise at only a 5% victory for Kerry.

Let us not forget that Clinton had a Republican Congress for 6 of his 8 years.  There was good reform including Welfare Reform in those years.  We need to cut out the pork and make sure we get more tax cuts.  Taxes suck!  Look at the growth in lower taxed regions like the South and the shift away from the Northeast Region like New York.

And no matter what people say Bush started his term with a recession and luckily with his three major tax cuts for EVERYONE we are getting back to normal.  It was a bubble just waiting to bust.

Secret Weapon for Bush?
Published: October 24, 2004

To Bush-bashers, it may be the most infuriating revelation yet from the military records of the two presidential candidates: the young George W. Bush probably had a higher I.Q. than did the young John Kerry.
That, at least, is the conclusion of Steve Sailer, a conservative columnist at the Web magazine and a veteran student of presidential I.Q.'s. During the last presidential campaign Mr. Sailer estimated from Mr. Bush's SAT score (1206) that his I.Q. was in the mid-120's, about 10 points lower than Al Gore's.
Mr. Kerry's SAT score is not known, but now Mr. Sailer has done a comparison of the intelligence tests in the candidates' military records. They are not formal I.Q. tests, but Mr. Sailer says they are similar enough to make reasonable extrapolations.
Mr. Bush's score on the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test at age 22 again suggests that his I.Q was the mid-120's, putting Mr. Bush in about the 95th percentile of the population, according to Mr. Sailer. Mr. Kerry's I.Q. was about 120, in the 91st percentile, according to Mr. Sailer's extrapolation of his score at age 22 on the Navy Officer Qualification Test.
Linda Gottfredson, an I.Q. expert at the University of Delaware, called it a creditable analysis said she was not surprised at the results or that so many people had assumed that Mr. Kerry was smarter. "People will often be misled into thinking someone is brighter if he says something complicated they can't understand," Professor Gottfredson said.
Many Americans still believe a report that began circulating on the Internet three years ago, and was quoted in "Doonesbury," that Mr. Bush's I.Q. was 91, the lowest of any modern American president. But that report from the non-existent Lovenstein Institute turned out to be a hoax.
You might expect Kerry campaign officials, who have worried that their candidate's intellectual image turns off voters, to quickly rush out a commercial trumpeting these new results, but for some reason they seem to be resisting the temptation.
Upon hearing of their candidate's score, Michael Meehan, a spokesman for the senator, said merely: "The true test is not where you start out in life, but what you do with those God-given talents. John Kerry's 40 years of public service puts him in the top percentile on that measure."
