Democrats fear divided party after nominee chosen
"The president donned his money-colored tie Tuesday to deliver a message to Congress [on screen: video of Bush suggesting the tax cuts be made permanent]. Are you suggesting we take the policies that got us into this mess in the first place and render them irrevocable? Stewart, imitating Bush: 'Here's what I'm saying. We dug a big hole for ourselves, people. What I think we need to do is just keep digging. Because eventually we'll get to China. Apparently, they have all our money'" --Jon Stewart

Shocking Our Soldiers
2004, the United States Army issued an urgent bulletin to commanders across
Iraq, warning them of a deadly new threat to American soldiers. Because of
flawed electrical work by contractors, the bulletin stated,
soldiers at American bases in Iraq had received severe electrical shocks, and
some had even been electrocuted.
"I guess it's good news. Government figures released by President Bush today shows we are not in a recession. Yeah. Unless, of course, you have to buy gas or food or some other luxury item. Then you're screwed." --Jay Leno
history is written, it will be said this is a safer country and more hopeful

Subject: Bush-McCain Challenge
I just took The Bush-McCain Challenge -- an online quiz to see if you can tell the difference between George W. Bush and John McCain. Check it out, and see if you can do any better than I did!
I got three right.
I bet Bush and McCain wouldn't get any right!

"Today also happens to be the fifth anniversary of the day that President Bush stood in front of an aircraft carrier with the huge 'Mission Accomplished' banner behind him. Turned out, unless the mission was to blow two trillion dollars and wind up with four dollar a gallon gas, it wasn't accomplished. ... I'm going to miss President Bush, as a comedian. Not as an American." --Jimmy Kimmel
The GOP's Jeremiah Wright
BORED by those
endless replays of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright? If so, go directly to YouTube,
search for “John Hagee Roman Church Hitler,” and be recharged by a fresh jolt of
clerical jive...Mr. Hagee is not a fringe kook but the pastor of a Texas
megachurch. On Feb. 27,
he stood with John McCain and endorsed him over the religious conservatives’
favorite, Mike Huckabee, who was then still in the race.
Subject: Please show your support
There are less
than eight months until the election, an election that
will decide the next President of the United States. The person
elected will be the President of all Americans, not just the Democrats
or the Republicans.
To show our solidarity as Americans, let's all get together and show
each other our support for the candidate of our choice.
It's time that we all came together, Democrats and Republicans alike.
If you support Obama or Hillary, please drive with your headlights
on during the day.
If you support the policies and character of John McCain, please drive
with your headlights off at night.
Thanks, Paul, I needed that laugh!

Subject: Undecided voter here
I live in Chapel Hill, NC.
I am a black woman and love Hillary and Obama.

Just a suggestion for all the undecided voters out there.
Thank you so much for your website. I sent a donation.
