    The trivia question is this,

    When was the last time a republican won the presidency without either a "Nixon" or a "Bush" name on the ticket?

    I'll save you the hunt -

    1928

    Don't know about the rest of you but I find that interesting.

    -- and, for Pete's sake, lets not blow this excellent record tonight!

    Everything is still Bush's fault. If Obama wins, in his eighth year we will still be talking about how he inherited this mess we will still be in.

    Going into the 2008 election, you had to go back to 1972 (Nixon-Agnew) to find a Republican ticket that did not have the names Bush or Dole on it. Bush "family" record 5-1, Dole 0-2.

    What I do admire about the Bush's is when their term is done they go home and be quiet. The Clintons are like the last drunk at a party that just won't leave. How long are we going to have to see these fucking people?
