Lieberman Would Name McCain Defense Secretary

I’m a little confused about why Lieberman is running as a Democrat. Being that he supports just about everything Bush does and wants to appoint McCain as Secretary of Defense – why doesn’t he just run as a Republican?

Media Coverage of War protests – October 25th

As I stated earlier – the Bush controlled media deliberately avoids coverage of anti-war protests. And when they do – they always lie about the numbers.
