HJ Heinz Laid Off 3,000-4,000 Over Past Years

Is Bush responsible for job losses? Maybe indirectly. But it sure doesn't help that Teresa Heinz's company has been shedding workers for years (or at least that was the plan announced in 1999).

Apparently the Weight Watchers frozen food division is owned by Heinz. And Whoopie Goldberg is -- wait, was -- a Weight Watchers' pitchwoman.

Were I Michael Moore, I could get a solid 55 minute documentary out of those two facts alone.

Thanks to Tanker.

Tanker also sent along this article, which you probably already saw, but if you didn't, it's worth checking out: Aides: Kerry Didn't Read National Intelligence Estimate Report Before Voting for War.

That's right-- he didn't read the same NIE report he's claiming Bush didn't read. (Bush says he did read it, btw.)

Remember, this is the same man who says we need a President who will get all the facts before taking us to war. I guess we need a President who will get all the facts, but not so much a Senator.


Correction: Jeepers, I didn't read the article's date; it was a 1999 piece. I had to re-write my original post to make a similar point.

Sorry about that. This is the second time I've posted an older article before reading the date on it. Shame on me, but this time, lesson learned.

Thanks to Yaron for pointing that out to me.
