    Rule 1 is never vote for an incumbent; it just makes them arrogant. (Remember Richard Nixon?) Rule 2 is that when the incumbent is obviously superior to the challenger, seel Rule 1. What the winner learns is more important than who wins.

    your email friend sounds more desperate than confused, and must have read the latest polls that Kerry is tied with Bush now.

    Anyway here are some fair comparisons between the two candidates in the area of health, science and the environment, put forward by the respected science journal Nature:

    Kerry might be making some kind of argument about Iraq, Chick-Dance, I'll grant you that. But everyone knows we had bad intelligence, and that is why we had to change the reasons for going into Iraq, Condie Rice was admitting that today.

    Fortunately, we can rest assured that Bush is "working hard" on fixing our CIA intelligence. As you can see, we are now hiring people with real criminal investigations experience to be leaders in the CIA.

    Whew, now we can all sleep a little easier at night.

    Actually, Treobk214, there are many flaws in that email you have received. And truthfully, you could find similarities between Clinton and Mao, or Bush and Lenin.
    that email wasnt mine. just offering it here as an interesting tidbit.
    by the way, chickdance. the feeling is mutual. there is a LOT of bs floating around many of your posts, but ive never made such a comment toward you. but go ahead, chick, flame away. if you get your jollies that way, i hope that makes you feel better.

    Personally I do not see anything wrong with what Chick said. The email pushes the envelope to achieve a right wing type of humor, so what? Do we have to pretend that we think it is really funny or really accurate? No we don't.
