Behind the Handshake: Some Democrats Still Seethe
Dyke couldn't resist a little RNC counterpunch: "It's unfortunate that John Kerry's supporters have so little regard for the truth that they would spread Internet stories with no basis in fact."
The source of the e-mails could not be independently determined.
Going Both Ways on the Environment
More than a third of Americans say they don't trust President Bush "at all" as a source of information about the environment, according to a new survey of attitudes about the environment by the Global Strategy Group for the Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Sciences. Kerry fares somewhat better, with 24 percent saying they don't trust him on the issue.
But before Kerry's campaign tries to make hay out of that finding, consider the flip side: Although 26 percent of Americans say they trust the president "a lot" for environmental information, only 12 percent say they feel that way about Kerry.
Another survey finding: Survey respondents mentioned environmental concerns (9 percent) almost as often as terrorism (10 percent) as "the most important problem in the United States in the next 20 years." The top-ranking concern is jobs and the economy (17 percent).
You'd Think They'd Be Distracted
A trade organization for adult nightclubs is asking 4,000 owners to register the employees and customers of strip clubs to vote -- and to vote against the president, according to the Associated Press.
"It's not to say our industry loves John Kerry or anything like that," said Dave Manack, associate publisher of E.D. Publications Inc., which publishes Exotic Dancer magazine. "But George Bush, if he's reelected, it could be very damaging to our industry."
Perhaps not what Kerry had in mind, but a vote is a vote.
