We should consider ourselves lucky that the Bushies only stole two elections and billions of dollars.
Was the 2006 election rigged when Democrats won control of Congress?
Or are they only "rigged" when Republicans win the presidency or control of Congress?

LOL, no you're already running around and screaming it before the election.

It would be fun to capture our favorite CD quotes... and compile them...
such as mine referring to Barack being a commie since he wrote a paper on RUSSIA (all caps) in college...

About half the members will suddenly disappear since their DEM party jobs to reply/post to the oposition will have dried up. Don't worry though, all the DEM smear murchants will be back in a year or so for the senate appointments (oops I mean elections)

This is intersting! Can you supply a "list"? I for one, would be happy to see an "outside my own head" view of this topic! Or pm me, if you don't want to post it?

I have just read through this entire thread,and seem to detect a general agreement, amoung all posters, as to the inevitable "defeat" of the McCain / Palin ticket. I too have been watching the poll numbers, and agree that a McCain defeat looks very likely, but I am on "the other side"! This phenomena seems a bit odd to me. . . anyone else?
