I didn't know you could keep a horse in Berkeley!

Look what showed up in the Entertainment News on Yahoo!:
Wes Boyd and Joan Blades, co-founders of MoveOn, are seen outside their Berkeley, Calif., home on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2004. The Internet political group on Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2004, premieres 10 new anti-Bush ads created by award-winning directors and starring popular Hollywood actors. An independent group formed in 1998 and not connected directly to Democratic candidate John Kerry, MoveOn has promised an unconventional approach to the election.
Nothing to see here, just MoveOn!

More fun "not connected" 527 news at Truth Laid Bear, American Thinker, and an updated Connections chart.

But here's the best 527 fun - Dole Defends Swiftees in Call From Kerry:
"John Kerry called me this morning, which surprised me," Dole told radio host Sean Hannity.

"He said he was very disappointed, we'd been friends. I said John, we're still friends, but [the Swiftvets] have First Amendment rights, just as your people have First Amendment rights.

Dole told Kerry, "I'm not trying to stir anything up, but I don't believe every one of these people who have talked about what happened are Republican liars.

"And very frankly, Bush is my guy, and I'm tired of people on your side calling him everything from a coward to a traitor to everything - a deserter."

Dole said he urged Kerry, "Why don't you call George Bush today and say, 'Mr. President, let's stop all this stuff about the National Guard and Vietnam - and let's talk about the issues."

Dole said Kerry responded, "I haven't spent one dime attacking President Bush."

But the Republican war hero shot back, "You don't have to. You've got all the so-called mainstream media, plus you've got and all these other groups that have spent millions and millions of dollars trying to tarnish Bush's image."

"Don't tell me you don't know what some of these people are doing," he told Kerry.
The emphasis added is mine.
