Now, that's sad.
which part of "Zell Miller, I would vote for him" did you not understand! I dont have allegence to a party I have allegence to principles they just happen to be quite opposite of yours! Hows about you throwing out a few republicans you would vote for!

Well, he had "other priorities" at the time, as he has explained many times, cut the guy some slack.

Actually the saddest part of this statement is that you have to add the disclaimer that you are not a Kerry or Clinton fan if you state a fact that detracts from a member of the current administration.

Not at all. Unfortunately we all have to pay for the stupidity of most. If you don't like the choices when you go to vote than don't vote. You still have a choice unfortunately our politicians(all) are bought and paid for. They are NOT for the people. It has become about money and power.

But beyond that, just on the surface - who the hell wants another Clinton in office - sandwiched in between two Bush's? What has this country come to... when people are willing to stomach a potential 38 year rule - (If you go back to GW Sr.'s VP...) by two families. It all is truly mind boggling how some can passively except this.

Oh... but who knows anymore. The bar has been lowered so much. I think this country has jumped the shark. It's now just the Golden Age of Rust.

It's time to take the fam and head for the hills. Live off the land. Brew my own beer. Maybe start my own religion based on the musings of Hunter S. Thompson.

And, I'm really not a hippie - but this all looks like fun, no?

Ah.

It is a sad commentary that neither party can be trusted; it is all special interests and corruption. People realize this, and it is disheartening.

I was just reminded of a Kurt Weil song about oppression...what keeps mankind alive, its a very brutal truth. Will have to find those lyrics.

Those individuals who voted Bush into the White House must feel like Horse manure right now, particularly about the direction (down hill fast) he has taken not only the United States, but the entire World. Although those voters who put Bush into office seem to always put on a good "game face" in public, they have to be totally humiliated, disgraced and regretful about not only their association with Mr.Bush, but also their decision to put him into office.
I was thinking that those who don't like Bush must be feeling like horse stuff themselves, or at least stepped in it.

In case you haven't noticed, the French have come to his rescue. It won't be long until the rest of the world falls into the line up...

Zell is definetly a cool guy. I would vote for him too. A straight talker with a spine of iron.

My dad's a chickenhawk too; I think it's hypocritical to be a fan of a war you would not yourself go and fight in.
