|A client's wife (who I have met) sent me an e-mail reading "Please consider joining the Dean Grassroots Campaign," with a link to the Dean website.
Argh. I'm biting my tongue.
|you should support Dean||gtx|

|If he gets the nomination you'll be set. Then again I had friends who were rooting for Bush because they thought he would discredit and destroy the Republican party once and for all. I guess they could still prove to be right... I mean correct. ;)|
|he annoys me||DougSloan|

|Not sure what it is about him, but he is really annoying. He just seems like know it all jerk. Sorry, but that's my impression.|
|and Bush doesn't?||gtx|

|Seriously? Doesn't he seem like a dumb jerk? Even if he does happen to be on your team...|

|Honestly, to me, Bush sounds like a regular guy who should probably be herding cattle, but in a job that might well be over his head; his saving grace is being surrounded with people smarter than he is and having good intentions.

|Have some fun. Show up at the meetings and mess with them. Ask questions like "So this Iraq thing. Are we for it or against it?" And "We're for legalization of pot, right? I hope so." And "How do you spell Dean?"|

|Sounds like fun. However, I'm not that poker-faced in person, despite Ed and I making a good run of fooling nearly everyone here for an entire day. ;)

|hmm, you may have a point||DougSloan|

|I guess the real dilemma is whether I'd trust the Supreme Court of the United States, or some trial judge in Florida backed up by the Florida Supreme Court. Recall that it was Gore who took the battle to the courts, and it was the Florida courts which would have permitted only selected counties, chosen by Gore, to be recounted, AND that every recount still turned up Bush as the winner.
But this has only been rehashed about 5 million times... This argument is about as tired as the "Clinton lying about sex" argument, isn't it?
|About as tired as the "Where are the WMD" argument too. (nm)||czardonic|
