The presidential election is still a dead heat - and now Bush might be pulling ahead. How is this possible? I simply cannot understand it... OK, I'm aware this is the week of his party's convention - but still...
Let's take a look at the "shared burden" in Iraq: We have over a hundred and thirty thousand there, not counting nearly a thousand that have been killed or the many thousands that have returned wounded. Here are the other countries that have sent troops (as of June).
Britain 12,000 <--- That's it?!? Some partner.
Czech Rep. 92 <--- no czech mate here
Dominican Rep. 300
El Salvador 360
Estonia 55 <--- big help there
Italy 3,000 <--- someone has to make the noodles
Japan 1,000 <---and the sushi
Macedonia 28 <--- twenty eight fucking people
Moldova 25 <--- so much for badmouthing Macedonia
New Zealand 60 <--- they weren't busy watching L.O.T.R?
Norway 150 <--- are they on skis?
Poland 2,400 <--- save the jokes. they've heard 'em
Slovakia 69 <--- no comment :)
South Korea 675 <--- now THAT'S ironic
Thailand 443 <--- Mmmmm. Curry.
Does that really balance out our 130,000+ troops? Even a dumbass can tell those numbers don't add up. And yet, the presidential race is a dead heat.
"The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa. Our intelligence sources tell us that he has attempted to purchase high-strength aluminum tubes suitable for nuclear weapons production."
This was quickly proved to be untrue. Worse still, the administration was aware that intelligence was flawed months before that statement appeared in Bush's state of the union speech. And yet, the presidential election, today, is a dead heat.
Here's a quote straight from the mouth of a Canadian member of parliament:
"They (Americans) tortured people in Iraq, they (the Iraqis) have no weapons of mass destruction. Could somebody explain to me whether you think they're idiots or geniuses?"
And yet, the presidential election here is a dead heat.
Nor do people who might some day GET SICK. Or people with kids or elderly parents. ...and speaking of which...
And yet... the presidential race is a dead heat.
But like I said - poor people don't vote. Otherwise, it makes no sense that the candidates could possibly be tied in recent polls.
Well, for starters... I DO.
What about YOU?

You forgot young women. 22 million women between the ages of 19 and 25 didn't vote in the last Presidential election. Maybe if they gave away free lattes or trendy handbags........::::: | September 2, 2004 1:56 PM
