Right after the 9/11 attacks, President Bush delivered a halting, fumbling speech in Barksdale, Arkansas. This fact challenges the popular myth that after 9/11, he was a calm, confident leader. As you'll see later in DIES IRAE, it's listening to this speech on TV that first makes Steve suspicious. Listen to an MP3 of the actual speech here.

Welcome to the White House is a hilarious site that pokes shameless fun at the vicious antics of the Bush Administration. Our personal favorite from the dark days after 9/11 is the Patriotic Poster that reads: "He volunteered for a beer run--he ended up running the world!" Read it and weep, baby.

Michael Moore, everyone's favorite left-wing wiseguy, knows what questions to ask, like: was Bush guilty of desertion in the National Guard? For that alone, Mike deserves the thanks of a grateful nation.

He's the victim of the biggest media hatchet job since George Romney, but let's not forget the great Howard Dean, the man who woke up America. Last year he alone of major American politicians opposed The Death Machine. The shocking way his simple "Yay!" in Iowa was overblown--and overplayed--shows what happens if you oppose media conglomerates. Howard Dean is a real patriot.
