Despite being a liberal commie hippie, I’m gonna download these.  Just like I watch Fox News to get a good laugh, I can crack up as the president tells me everything is ok and that you can indeed win a war against a tactic.  I think I’m gonna go beat the crap out of terrorism’s little brother, sabotage!

Alden, I get the joke, but to win the war against terrorism is possible. Unfortunately, to win a war against Islam, or even a war against Islamic states in the Middle East, is not possible. We just don’t have enough troops. They are already stretched thin, and the adminstration doesn’t have the support to start a draft.

The administration is running the wrong war, and instead of keeping the troops in reserve for a real threat, they used them on one that didn’t exist—no WMDs. I wonder how many people, when asked, would say yes to a religious war. That’s what these nuts have gotten us in. Why vote in doomsday Christians when fundamentalism is precisely the problem in the world?

agreed.  these RNC speeches are good for those who need a good laugh.

Really, how many times must they bring up 9/11?  It’s bordering on lunacy.  We need to move on, that attack was three years ago.  We all felt bad about it, but we need progress, not never-ending sob stories.

No matter which side of the fence you’re on, big ups to Apple for providing this public service.

I’m downloading Zell Miller’s speech tonight. Wow! Homerun.

“We need to move on, that attack was three years ago.”

Tell that to John Kerry who keeps bringing up a war that happened 30 years ago and then I’ll consider your comment.

For those that don’t know, the speeches from the Democratic convention are still on iTunes for free also.

Please Vote

All this whining and liberal name calling from you Americans, who live in a classic liberal democracy, is amusing, but pointless. Grow up. And learn about transferable voting , proportional representation, or choice voting so you aren’t stuck in this dated counter-productive false dichotomy 19th century pseudo-democratic two-party mess!

We’re an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week.

Look what the repubs got…

Exactly what they wanted….

Remember the panic that ensued on this list when the DNC happened and posters claimed that apple wouldn’t provide for the RNC?

Like I said then, Apple’s wanting to follow equal time requirements, so both sides were going to get their speeches for free the second that apple decided to provide this service.

The Electoral College System unfairly gives states more representation! What ever happened to majority rules? We need a percentage based system so that idiots like Bush never win elections again!

That’s right, I called him an idiot! All of you Bush supporters can go f*** yourselves!

Are done with your hissy fit?  You type very well for a three year old.

Are YOU done with your ......

Funny how people don’t look at their own errors before commenting on someone else’s!

Posted by Stylescraper on September 2, 2004 at 5:05 AM (PDT)


Probably another idiotic Bush supporter!

You typed “Funny how people don’t look at their own errors before commenting on someone else’s!”

Thanks for pointing out my error.  Thank you also for admitting that your original post was in error.

Whoa there.  I wasn’t trying to bring the flame war.  Ok, maybe I was.  But still.  Calm down.  I’ll sum it up with a quote:  “Fighting on the internet is like participating in the Special Olympics:  even if you win, you’re still retarded.”
That being said, I think the Special Olympics are great and I volunteer at them.

And thank you for reinforcing the fact that you are what you claim to be:

An Ape!

Bottom line, gang:  Apple has the speeches from the RNC available.

I re-listened to Bill Clinton’s after hearing Cheney.  Give it a shot.  Very interesting contrasts.
