    Dubbyuh's political machine continues to rattle and clank its way across the country trying to prop up sagging support for his "Social Security Reform"...Read as: "Giveaway to Wall Street contributors". Part of this effort includes tax-payer funded "town hall" style meetings. Unfortunately all of the residents, who are tax-payers by the way, of the towns these meetings are held in don't have access to them. Instead, the attendees are carefully vetted by the local Republican Party apparatchiki for their loyalty to the party line. Local opposition is black-listed or ejected from the proceedings if they somehow find their way in.

    <blockquote>Three Denver residents yesterday charged that they were forcibly removed from one of President Bush's town meetings on Social Security because they displayed a bumper sticker on their car condemning the administration's Middle East policies. - <a href=http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A10969-2005Mar29.html><i><b>The Washington Post</b></i></a></blockquote>

    <blockquote>In Fargo, N.D., where Bush held a Social Security event in February, a local newspaper reported that more than 40 residents were placed on a "black list" of people who were not to receive tickets because they had expressed opposition to Bush's policies. - <a href=http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-na-bush11mar11,1,1405055.story?coll=la-headlines-politics><i><b>The LA Times</b></i></a></blockquote>

    With all of this orchestration, I can only wonder if they haven't re-animated the corpse of Leni Reifenstahl, and have her directing the campaign. Either than or they transplanted her brain into Karen Hughes' body.

    Bully, that was old in October. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm not about to start listing all the dirty tricks by Democrats last year.

    Give it a rest.

    Rave on, oh demented one!

    Every time I start to get down on GW about things like lack of border security, lack of fiscal restraint, lack of any coherent energy policy etc, I am reminded of the possible alternative - kerry/edwards.

    That usually puts a perspective on things.

    Actually, Cheech and Chong would be a better alternative to what we have in Washington now. At least they could excuse their disconnect from reality on drugs...Dubbyuh's administration has no excuse.

    Okay, Lizard Lips - tell me with a straight face that kerry/edwards/heinz would have been better.

    Unfortunately, given the short attention span of many Americans, the issue does need to be revisited from time to time in order to refresh memories.
