Celebrity boxing...Who would you like to see?

It's an interesting story. That should have been the scandal, rather than spending untold millions investigating if Clinton got a little action with an intern.

But I think that we can agree on the fact that we need more than two political parties in this country. It's not doing us any favors. The liberterian party is doing pretty well for themselves, but we need a dozen political parties to really give us really different choices.

Will Kerry be any better than Bush? I don't see how he can be worse. I really am voting Anybody But Bush this year - and before you say that it's a silly thing to say, consider the fact that the expression "anybody but bush" is in itself a tongue-in-cheek play on the "Anybody But Carter" republican campaign of 1980.

I think that the following site sums up my feelings about the next election pretty well: http://www.johnkerryisadouchebagbutimvo ... anyway.com

Dang AA...I thought you had found a good site....until I read this...

If you make *any* profit whatsoever, I ask that it all be donated to a worthwhile cause, such as a charity. Beer, in this instance, is not a worthwhile cause.

:-?

Nice find... ;-D

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

Yes this slogan was used, and that's all it was...a slogan. The reality was that Rebublicans were solidly behind Reagan and the platform he had put forth. Reagan won with 44 states....a landslide in political terms.

Unfortunately for the left, there is little solid support for Kerry. He is not charismatic, he has a platform that offers little in the way of optimism for the country or difference from the Republicans.

You will not see a Kerry landslide this year. :,-(

It should be pointed out that Carter had higher approval ratings at this point in the election cycle than Bush. I'm not predicting a Kerry landslide, mind you, but I am predicting a substantial win for the good guys.

By the way, do you think that Bush will drop his opposition to stem cell research after Reagan's death?

Coulter is a twig and Garafolo could take her I would think. Rush doesn't look like he'd have a lot of stamina, to be honest. re: Savage versus Soros - I don't know what Savage and Soros look like, so I'll just take it on faith that Savage would lose. Because I doubt that his tiny black heart could sustain him for any length of time in the ring.


The right has Arnold......he'll kick anyones ass on the left ;-)

I'm not really sure that you're following the conversation completely.

While that's true that he could, he is awfully... leftish for a republican. Supports abortion, gay rights, and gun control. Calling him part of the right is like calling Zell part of the left.
