Early Voting Locations

Last day to vote Early is Thursday, Jan 32.

(Funny how nobody said anything about January having 32 days)
But if you voted early, good for you. Twice as many people did as ever before. For the rest of you, have fun next Tuesday.

IT'S HARD TO BE A REPUBLICAN IN 2008
Somehow, you have to believe that:
1. Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and
Hillary Clinton.
2. The United States should get out of the United Nations, but
our highest national priority is enforcing U. N. resolutions against
Iraq.
3. "Standing Tall for America" means firing your workers and
moving their jobs to India, Mexico, and China.
4. A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body,
but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all
mankind without regulation.
5. Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless
you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our
prayers for your recovery.
6. The best way to improve military morale is to praise the
troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.
7. Group sex and drug use are degenerate sins unless you
someday run for governor of California as a Republican.
8. If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have
sex.
9. A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time
allies, then demand their cooperation and money.
10. HMOs and insurance companies have the interest of the
public at heart.
11. Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy.
Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.
12. Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk
science, but creationism should be taught in schools.
13. It is okay that the Bush family has done $millions of
business with the Bin Laden family.
14. Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when
Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did
business with him, and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin
Laden" diversion.
15. A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable
offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.
16. Government should limit itself to the powers named in the
Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the
Internet.
17. The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but
George Bush's Harken Oil stock trades are none of our business.
18. You support states ‘right, which means Attorney General
John Ashcroft can tell states what local voter initiatives they have a
right to adopt.
19. What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest,
but what Bush did in the '80s is irrelevant. (Snorting Cocaine)
20. Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist,
but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international
harmony.
21. Affirmative Action is wrong but that it is ok for your Daddy
and his friends to get you into Yale and be a cheerleader, the Texas Air National Guard,
Harvard Business School, part ownership of Harken Oil, part ownership of
the Texas Rangers, the Governorship of Texas, and then have the Supreme
Court Appoint you President of the USA.

There's a "Hard to be a Dem"

There's a "Hard to be a Dem" version of this floating around out there. When it shows up, compare the factual nature of both of them. This one is a bit dated so I guess it's time for a new version of both sides.
