Chichester Edits Statements For Accuracy

Rain Man Ron Paul at yesterday's Republican debate:

"The thought that the Iranians could pose an imminent attack on the United States is preposterous (The thought that I don't understand the Iranians hate the United States of America, and would drop a nuclear weapon on a major population center when they have the capability, disqualifies me from being taken seriously as not only a presidential candidate, but as an adult) . There's no way (Is there a war going on in Iraq now, with the Iranians helping to kill our soldiers?) . This is just . . . this is . . . this is just war propaganda, continued war propaganda, preparing this nation to go to war and spread this war not only in Iraq, but into Iran, unconstitutionally (Did something happen on September 11, 2001 that no one has told me about?) ."

SCHIP and Children

This story about the use of a 12-year-old boy by the Democratic Congressional leadership to promote the expansion of the SCHIP program has not received the national media attention it should receive. The boy's family lives a moderately comfortable life in Maryland, which didn't stop Democrats from using him to deliver the response to President Bush's weekly radio address.

Part of what the boy said in the script written for him:

"I don't know why President Bush wants to stop kids who really need help from getting CHIP."

To place this boy in such a raw political setting, using language he is too young to understand, is revolting and shameful.

The Daily Chichester

Governor Richard Milhouse Spitzer on one of his top aides involved in allegedly attempting to ruin Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno's career heading to a lobbying firm.

The Governor-Infant also had another fit tagging Bruno as part of the "rabid right."

The WaPo on the pedestrian presidential debate.

SpeakerTracy Flick Nancy Pelosi comparing SCHIP spending to Iraq war spending. She's got her priorities straight. They're practically the same issue.

Worker's compensation for a stripper injured performing on her pole upheld by Indiana court (there's no video evidence, which is a complete outrage).
