    Or... let's extend affirmative action to the republican party. Or would that lose the white vote?

    John McCain graduated 5th FROM THE BOTTOM out of a class of 899. He only got in to the academy because both his father and grandfather were admirals. He went on to crash 5 jets, started a fire on an aircraft carrier and while disobeying orders, was captured by the enemy where he was tortured into making propaganda videos.

    George Bush Jr. was a C minus student and taker of much alcohol and drugs. His father got him into Harvard. He eventually became the worst president in history. Letting America's worst mass murderer go free. Invaded the wrong country. When you add in all the deaths from 9/11, the two wars, Katrina, and all the other disasters, possibly over a hundred thousand Americans were either killed or maimed and all directly related to his being president.

    Two examples of rich people's "affirmative action" Republicans and the right wing find totally acceptable, but has caused incredible damage to the country.

    You want more? I have more. Let me know.

    1. it's not based on race

    2. it's not govt mandated.

    That last sentence threw me. Bush himself was america's worst mass murderer.
