Silliest Article of the Day http://www.nytimes.com/2003/09/15/politics/campaigns/15DEAN.html?pagewanted=all&position=
President Bush's statements on almost every issue don't agree with each other or with *reality*. Finally, in the last press conference a few journalists got around to pointing this out, but they still gave him a free pass when he ignored the questions. How about journalists apply to Bush the same dogged scrutiny they're applying to the Dems? Let's start with any of his many claims that there are chemical and biological weapons in Iraq! And don't forget Cheney's statement before the war that the Iraqis had nuclear weapons.

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
