I just saw this petition at whitehouse.gov. Its not getting much action but I think it should. If any one actually sees this posting please take a look and if you agree sign up, sounds enough like a cover-up conspiracy to me that I really wanted to know more.
I read the piece in WSJ today and I had to look up the Democratic congresswoman who apparently co-wrote it with McConnell. I thought it was such a load of hooey I wrote her this note:
It's odd that "Intelligence" is not one of the issues that can be selected, especially since you're a subcommittee chair.
Although I am not someone who voted to put you in office your opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal today addresses every American's future and I feel that all of us should respond in kind.
There are so many hopes that I've had dashed by the Senator's loss, that I don't want to forget that there is no way to check the machines. I've been writing software for over thirty years and after reading the studies on electronic voting machines I can state that our first priority is to demand that voting be transparent: require a paper trail from all voting machines, do not allow any private software to tabulate our votes, the public must have complete access to all aspects of our voting system. The odd pattern of exit polling being much more in error only in those states that didn't have paper trails is disquieting but without recourse
Mr. Williams this morning referred to former Vice President Al Gore as a "loose cannon" for his speech at the MoveOn.org PAC Perhaps he should do a little less editorializing in his reporting and note that the speech delivered a laundry list of facts that added up to a withering indictment of the current administration. He delivered it with eloquence, verve and yes, passion. He also delivered it to repeated applause.
That the type of verbage that is used for Mr. Bush's speeches by the other network that Mr. Williams appears on. Maybe the conflict of working for commercial media is destroying his journalistic integrity. He should save that attitude of deprecating an honest revulsion for the loss of American honor, freedom, prosperity, security and the deaths of hundreds of Americans and thousands of Iraqis for his other job.
