Also, Brand Democrat sounds like a fairly good idea. If anyone wanted to do print these out and flyer some area near me, I could be convinced to help.

Here's a decent reason for buying dolphin safe Tuna...
Lifesavers Rob Howes, his 15-year-old daughter Niccy, Karina Cooper and Helen Slade were swimming 300 feet off Ocean Beach near Whangarei on New Zealand's North Island when the dolphins herded them -- apparently to protect them from a shark.

"They started to herd us up, they pushed all four of us together by doing tight circles around us," Howes told the New Zealand Press Association (NZPA).

Howes tried to drift away from the group, but two of the bigger dolphins herded him back just as he spotted a nine-foot great white shark swimming toward the group.

Time to start the ole blog up again. I pretty much shut this thing down when we entered serious campaign mode last year. Now it's all over, my candidate lost the primaries, and my party lost the election.

Well, let's start off by examining why: LESSONS LEARNED ABOUT UNDECIDED VOTERS

I must say, after canvassing for Kerry, I pretty much agree with everything in this reflection. At least it gives me a reason to drink more.

Well, it seems I'm still on the list, so I might as well post this blantant use of racism to further his stance in the polls: Sharpton Calls Dean's Agenda 'Anti-Black'

This is the most pathetic attack I've seen in a while, aside from the "rats" subliminal messages from the last election.

Howard Dean's opposition to affirmative action, his current support for the death penalty and historic support of the NRA's [National Rifle Association's] agenda amounts to an anti-black agenda that will not sell in communities of color in this country,"

Uh... right... because, you know, wanting to make affirmative action based more on poor people of all races rather than based on race itself is such a bad idea....

He said his comments were in response to a news report yesterday that Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) plans to endorse Dean, the former Vermont governor and presumed front-runner for the 2004 Democratic nomination

Ah... it all makes sense now. Jackson, a black man, is supporting a white man, and not Sharpton or Braun. 'Cause, you know, all white people are eeeeeevil KKK members out to kill all black people in some ethnic clensing frenzy.

Fucking racist bullshit. Why is this acceptable in our society? It doesn't make any sense. Doesn't he realize he's furthering BUSH in the polls by attacking his own team?! Is he really THAT stupid?!

Hmm... I don't think I'll make too much of a case about the Tawana Brawley thing, acutally... I don't know if I want to open that "kill whitey" can of worms.

::waits for the 'but white people really are evil' flame messages::

I noticed that there hadn't been a new update in a while from Matt, or from anyone else, and I considered why that might be... I know that Violet prolly isn't coming around anymore, and I usually don't post unless I see a new trend or article that hasn't been done to death, but it's uncharcteristic of Matt not to post for long streches...

Anyhow... yes, I haven't posted in a bit, and I've been looking for new data to share, but I haven't been very lucky in it. Bush is still a dick, the war in Iraq hasn't changed, and people are slowly noticing - at least, from what I can see. I'd like to ask the question, what does that tell us?

For the most part, I think t hat just shows that the media is feasting on the already ripe multitudes that the current administration has sown. I think the new news is old news that's just now getting prime time airtime. I think it's all going to get blamed on Clinton. Oh yes, I've seen the beginnings of that rancid little attempt, but I don't think it will fly. But mostly, I just think that all of the things we've been busy posting these last few months are starting to turn up more often in the media, and we won't have anything interesting to post regarding politics until some of it starts to conclude.
