Yep,it's hard to believe they would print that. I saved it to a file in case some Liberal deletes it. That could never be printed in houston. It doesn't pander to the refugees or the wetbacks.

Re: Itís hard to believe an article like this would be published there.

You know after rereading the article I noticed something, he slams Mccain and Hillary but no mention of her buddy Barack Hussein Obama. I'm not a bigot but the pass this man gets from the media is nauseating.

Oh h..ll maybe I'm just angry at everything any more

So if we take out all the middle gibberish and compare the very first sentence with with the conclusion paragraph, we see that in fact these same Angry White Men can't be trusted to vote responsibly. Or maybe it's possible they were just deluded by all the hype in 2000, but to make the same mistake again in 2004 starts to show that maybe these man's men don't have it all figured out.

Now there is a germ of truth in the article, but there's just as much slant there as anywhere else. They've just tapped into a growing unrest and frustration by losing the PC filter, that's all.

I'm still going for the None of the Above option.

Re: Itís hard to believe an article like this would be published there.

Nice article and thank for sharing it. This upcoming election (campaigning seems like it's been going on for ever, or at least since the last one) has me in a real quandary. Guess it's vote for the lessor of three evils. Hate to vote for what is considered cream of the crap, but what are the choices? None of the above only means that others will have the power of choice. I am registered republican but was pulling for Richardson as he seemed to have the most positive experience. Oh well, got to vote for Mccain.....

+ 1! McCain is Bush--just WAY MORE Socialist (if that is actually possible)! Think of it as an "Arnold" preview. Kalifornia going national (scary thought)!

I'm not sure about the title, however. I would think that your panties might be in a wad if you are a WORKING man, period. Color/race irrelevant.

If we could just keep a smile on our face all the time it would confuse a lot of people....
