    dragging up the swift boat ads. :rofl:

    way to go, al!

    Five years after he put his money behind the Swift Boat ads that helped tank John Kerry’s presidential campaign, Senate Democrats gave T. Boone Pickens a warm welcome at their weekly policy lunch Thursday. Or at least most of them did.

    Kerry skipped the regularly scheduled lunch; his staff said the Massachusetts Democrat “was unable to attend because he had a long scheduled lunch with his interns and pages.” Sen. Al Franken managed to make time for the lunch — but then let Pickens have it afterward.

    i wonder how frankens lips got that rounded look, looks form fitting to me; that would explain why he is so far off track, his head has been down for ages and coming up for air is not to his liking

    I kept telling people that a lot of democratics wanted nothing to do with that meathead....And they didn't believe me.

    Now we can all see why.

    I voted for Bush... twice even but I must say that I would pass if I were given the opportunity to host Dick Cheney for dinner. I would not want that man in my house.

    Now, given the opportunity, I would invite President Obama in a heartbeat or even Nancy Pelosi or Ted Kennedy, all of whom I must say I disagree with in almost everything, but there is not a snowball's chance in hell, I would invite Dick Cheney.

    i don't hear his constituents and supporters complaining...

    and frankly, i wish i had the forum to say the things to him i wanted to.. publicly or privately... publicly would have been better.
