I agree they should know the rules and I am very disappointed that Perry and Newt did not make the cut. That being said, I think the requirements are wrong.

We know pics like this are not real. it is time we all stop falling for all the UTube postings, internet polls, etc. Most are either old, with dates changed, paid for by the candidates or just plain cut and paste at its best.

I can't be bothered to go fish for it again and I can't even if I try, but that in fact was from a Facebook posting by a Newt supporter, which I just happened to stumble upon. She was proud of the turnout.

I am sure you do, but think of how many believe everything they see on here. If so many didn't, we would not see this stuff posted almost hourly in the past few months.

They seem to be getting some Democratic support for their efforts to get on the ballot.

"Fellow former top Virginia prosecutor Steve Rosenthal said: "This is not a Democratic or Republican issue. If it takes emergency legislation, then we need to do it."

Exactly!
