Subject: Bush the criminal
I love your site, but unless I'm mistaken you're missing one of the biggest stories on Bush's criminal past. When Daddy Bush was in office, GW was on the Board of Directors for an oil conglomerate. Days prior to the company reporting a 10 digit loss, GW sold millions of dollars in stock. There's a word for that, insider trading, and its very illegal.
And its morally wrong. When he did that, he was robbing the stockholders of the stability of their life's savings. He was risking a further drop in stock price, manipulating the market and misusing the power and responsibility given to him by the SEC.
Its amazing that this story isn't bigger already, but if you want to know more, check out last months issue of Rolling Stone.
Keep up the good work!
Subject: cover your ass
I can imagine the hassles you are getting.Were it not for the internet and it's partial exposure of the inherent hypocrisy of our elected oalfs Billy boys dead ass would be hanging as a trophy in the horny halls of congrunt. They are running scared and spending my tax money to cut your and your kind throats, ie your access. They spend enough money, mine, on how to control and they have learned any law that says" you can not....." doesn't work any more so they attach their desires to something out in left field to sneak it through legislation and cut your first amendment throat. Attached you will find an example if passed will be a huge leap to cutting you and your kind from a public forum. Sincerely Richard Wilkinson, Ponder, Tx. Dear Senators Gramm and Hutchison,
I am taking a moment to write you with some concerns I have regarding legislation which will be brought under your scrutiny. The Methamphetamine Anti-Proliferation Act of 1999, led by Senators Hatch and Feinstein, would effectively end the protection of free speech on the Internet under the guise of protecting people from methamphetamine. Methamphetamine is a dangerous substance, and its production and distribution must not be tolerated. However, the text of the bill you will be asked to vote on is not specific to information about methamphetamine.
Based on section 9 of the act, (reproduced below)publishing any drug information on the Internet will become a felony, punishable by up to ten years in a federal prison. Simply linking to a web site containing drug information will also become a crime.
Of course we dont want people openly trafficking in drugs on the internet, and there must be some legislation to prevent this, but Sec. 5 of the bill (also reproduced below) should cover such an instance. If this bill becomes law, strictly informational sites such as the Lycaeum (http://www.lycaeum.org) and Erowid will be outlawed in the USA, and the door to further censorship on the Internet and elsewhere in America will be wide open.
In today's society the people depend on accurate information to create awareness that allow us to make informed and wise decisions. The rights of information publishers will be infringed upon by a law that demands they accurately predict the usage of the information that they make available. Whether a reader chooses to break Federal law is not something the publisher should be held legally responsible for. Please consider what similar laws could be passed based on an acceptance of this one. The dissemination of information about guns could be restricted, especially in the light of recent shootings. Medical information about drugs not yet approved in the USA could be stopped.
If this law is passed then even this email could be a felony that would result in me spending ten years of my life behind bars. Why? Because i have included 22 characters worth of information (www.lycaeum.org) that would make me an accessory should you decide to break our nations drug laws.
This bill jeopardizes the right of Americans to be informed.
This is reason enough to make you vote against the current wording of the Methamphetamine Anti-Proliferation Act of 1999.
Thank you for your service as my senators, Warmest Regards, concerned

Republicans are turning into "The Party". I guess they want everyone in jail except "Party Members". Sounds like another failed society to me that the GOP's all-time-hero himself labeled "The Evil Empire" ...

Subject: War on Americans
When the Berlin Wall was torn down and the USSR collapsed, I got a sinking feeling in my gut, knowing that our government's obsession with war and feeding the military-industrial complex would soon find a new enemy - the American people. This is no joke. Fifty million Americans have a criminal record - that means nearly everyone has a family member who is a "criminal". When the State puts a person in prison, the whole family is in prison, too, and the adverse effects are devastating, especially to kids. It just about tore my heart out to read the letters sent to you by the Drug POW's.
Although the Drug War is a disease that is slowly crippling our country, it is in reality only a symptom of a much deadlier malaise - a Federal government that is spinning out of control. Key portions of it are in the hands of people that have no respect for anybody or anything, including the Constitution, international treaties, its own laws, or the American people. I don't see a "Grand Conspiracy"; that would take organization and intelligence, both of which are severely lacking in the way the government behemoth operates. Instead I see a policy drift where government workers and decision makers adopt an "ends justifies the means" attitude in the persuit of dubious goals created to enhance our "leaders" electability.
The FBI's COINTELPRO program of the 1960's and 1970's was largely successful in stamping out organized non-violent resistance to government policies, which is like tying down the safety valve on a steam engine. People in power tend to forget that repression inevitably leads to a buildup of pressure, and resulting explosion usually destroys the entire machine.
Presently the safety valve has developed a serious leak with the rising popularity of the Internet. What an irony that it was originally conceived by the War Department! (I mean, Dept. of Defense) The Internet makes it too easy for people to look below the surface of the propaganda pumped out by the "mass media". The folks in Washington in charge of protecting us from ourselves have to be scared to death of the huge amount of damning material available to anyone with access to a computer.
I predict that many websites hosting "unapproved" material will soon disappear. Of course it won't happen overnight. There will not be a big announcement. The people in charge know how important it is to maintain the facade of freedom. The FEC will adopt requirements that political websites will have to be licensed. Other restrictions will appear in the guise of protecting the Internet from "viruses" and "security threats by terrorists". I expect that a federal agency known as "National Infrastructure Protection Center" will take the lead in protecting us from access to harmful material on the Internet. Their mission is to "perform threat assessment, warning, investigation, and response for threats or attacks against critical infrastructures, including telecommunications, utilities, government operations, and emergency services." You can be sure that "telecommunications" means "Internet backbone" and that they will be responsible for monitoring the traffic on that backbone.
Remember, "freedom of the press belongs to those who own one". Right now anyone can own a press in the form of a website, but not for long.
Oh, by the way, don't believe anything I've written. Do your own research. It will scare you half to death.

Subject: Good job!
I love the "nay" letters on your site, especially when the writers call Clinton and his fellow Democrats "socialists" and how George Dubyah is going to kick their butts come next November. Isn't it interesting, though, that during his tenure as governor of Texas, G.W. has not taken a single initiative to reverse one of the most overtly "socialist" laws in the state -- the so-called "Robin Hood Law," which, for those unfamiliar with the idea, takes money from "rich" school districts and gives it to "poor" ones? Seeing how the plan has utterly failed (the "poor" districts aren't much better off, and the "rich" school districts just get poorer and poorer), you would think the younger GB would jump at the chance to reverse this rather blatantly "socialist" law. But nooooo, he's too busy giving hole-in-the-wall parody websites free publicity through legal threats and authoritarian remarks.
Anyway, keep up the good work on your site. It's probably futile -- the only thing that seems capable of keeping G.W. from the White House would be a plane crash -- but what the hell, it's just plain funny.

Subject: All Things Considered piece
Dear gwbush.com webmaster:
Your site was featured on the national public radio show All Things Considered today (Go to http://www.npr.org/programs/atc/ and choose "archives" to hear it on RealAudio). I visited your parody while listening and read the AP story as well as your comments.
Frankly, I find it amazing that more webmasters aren't familiar with libel law. Any public statement which is demonstrably false and can be shown to be injurious is illegal and subject to damages; the First Amendment doesn't cover libel. All the Bush campaign needs to do is to show that a few potential supporters were confused and deterred by your site, thereby causing him harm, and you will be legally liable for damages. Yes, this is America, but none of our freedoms are absolute. Personally, I feel quite comfortable knowing that the First Amendment makes exceptions for libel and slander.
If I were in your shoes, I'd put something like "the unofficial website" atop the main page with an asterisk to the bottom explaining that it's a parody. However, I have a feeling you're probably going to have to learn about libel law the hard way. Need a lawyer?
Thank you for this site!! I am so sick of the blathering right-wing hypocrites of the GOP. After eight long years of Clinton bashing they are finally getting a well deserved taste of their own medicine. It should be a real circus if THIS clown is ever elected!
And I REALLY loved the negative letters! Wow! Obviously you have touched a very raw nerve! Now, to make the comedy complete, junior should pick that bird-brained quayle for VEEP! Now THAT combination would restore the dignity to the White House, huh?!

I have thoroughly enjoyed your web page and hope you don't have too many major problems keeping it online.
Reading through your email, I noticed that most of the writers in support of the site appear to be reasonably intelligent people who can write a well thought out message. Those who oppose your site seem, for the most part, to be illiterate boors who can't write a simple sentence without using the "f" word. Some don't make any sense at all, and others have never learned the rules of capitalization. The scary aspect of all this is that a lot of them may be registered voters.
The senior Bush was a con man. Just look at the way he campaigned in Texas as a "Texan". His only legal residence in Texas at the time was a Houston hotel suite. It's interesting to see how many Texans have written to complain about "Shrub's" activities as governor.
Bill Clinton is no saint, but are his crimes any worse than the shady financial dealings and drug abuse of the "Shrub"? What do all the self righteous, "shame on you" finger pointers think of that?

Subject: GET REAL
To the so-called defender of our First Amendment rights, Freedom comes with the price of responsibility. Dopes, such as yourself, who take our precious freedoms and abuse them only serve to diminish freedom. Much like the school shootings that have in turn limited the right to bear arms with more regulation, the use of the internet to publish trash will eventually lead to limits on our freedom of speech with more government regulation. So, next time you accuse George W. Bush of wanting to limit the freedom of speech, consider the role you are playing in bringing about the potential limits.

I always find it interesting how those in power get so uptight and want to restrict our personal freedoms, if it interfers with their plans. I think Bush is about the most perfect politician i've seen yet. He's produced, packaged and color glossy photographed. There is nothing real about him.

"But it's just a spoof," you say. Whether or not this is a spoof site is actually rather unimportant because there are a lot of people out there who have not done anything for the public, whether it be as a public servant or even by just voting, that are looking for some new excuse to be cynical and express negative or deragatory opinions that have netiher a base nor a body.

I wrote to this website before, and I am writing again now. I am a resident of Massachusetts which is largely Democratic. I heard that the maker of this site is from Massachusetts also. Well, since you have not written any unbiased information [Even though those who don't like the Right or Left (I commend YOU for being UNbiased) suggested you do], and even after you denied to me you "Were not a liberal," just like Clinton did, in ways, you still did not post any unbiased information, fulfilling the stereotype of the Massachusetts Democrat. Well, let me tell you something Zack you ARE a liberal, deny it or not. In the middle of this letter I just want to commend those who wrote letters in the "August Nays" section [which I might be in soon or now!] excellent writing, and correct ideas all the way! And I am not just saying that because I am a Republican [You've probably assumed]. I stopped visiting this website to see what the opposition was saying because it is just absurd, ridiculous claims, against a good man which attempt to have some meaning, but fail. I hope I haven't contributed to the amount of Internet hits you have had AT ALL. But I HAVE noticed I haven't heard about you in about two months. Is your 15 minutes of fame going down the drain? If it isn't it soon will, maybe some won't think so, but it will. So stop wasting your money NOW ZACK!!! And to those who criticized George W. Bush's attendance at Phillips Andover Academy, and his social class [which is above those who wrote that] I have one thing to say to you: YOU ARE JEALOUS!! You cannot afford or get in to such a fine institution!! And let me just say something to Zack and all the others reading this: GET A LIFE!!! As I said before I can't wait until Bush is President, and you liberals are nothing once again!!

I hope my letters contribute to the "August Nays" section(s)! And what is the comment that Ronald Reagan "ruined our country"?! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! I have a better one: Clinton ruined our country, and our traditional values. If I don't mention your liberal comments trust me I didn't like them either, you people make up the worst lies, just like Bill, to promote yourselves. And by the way a Republican controlled Congress will be a good thing for America! I am surprised to learn that there have been no GOP controlled Congresses and a GOP president at the same time, yet there have been more Republican White Houses. I hope that there were no Democratic presidents and Democratic controlled Congresses, like there was in 1993-1995. That was a disaster! Why do you think that the Republicans won in a landslide in 1994?! And by the way Medicare and all your other liberal programs are bad for the country, and because of Democrats hard working doctors, are getting cheated by the HMOs and getting hardly anything for office visits and surgeries!!! I just KNOW you liberals will resort to stereotype about Doctor's salaries. But hear this: Shut up! I know all about this I have a relative who is a physician (I know big word stupid, I know you don't understand: it means doctor). Some doctors do get a lot of money but most don't!! I am glad to tell you that one of the letters saying that George W. Bush, has been helping doctors in Texas, [It was negative, because this man had to PAY for medical care, a foreign concept to him]. I copied this letter, and had it posted in a hospital. So Zack, and the rest of your left wing followers, I hope that you are happy to know that your liberal trash of a site, is promoting our next president, George W. Bush!

Dear GW: I am a fellow Texan and have left the state on several occasions only to move back when I needed a place to hide out. I think as much trouble as you are in that you should think doing the same, moving the White House to Texas. This may not be so difficult if you were to invite a number of your friends in Washington and the ones in prison, or some of your father's friends, and ask them to come with you. They could take turns staying in the Travis or Crockett bedrooms. No one would come to Austin or San Antonio looking for you or them!
By the way, the other Bush website is a disgraceful mockery of your lofty goals of delimiting freedom and general forgiveness of youthful excess. We have a lot of that in Texas, as you know, except for a few things like murder and mental illness. You could continue the tradition of cheap lethal injection type executions and less and less funding for mental health. I think you knew my grandmother. Well, she couldn't afford treatment for her schizophrenia and was left in a nursing home when they closed the state hospital. With no insurance coverage for mental health, we don't have to have income tax down here. It might be fun to give presidential pardons to all the sex offenders. Ask your Dad about it. Thanks.

The Preamble of the Constitution of the United States of America reads

CENSORSHIP & THE INTERNET
When Luther nailed his theses inaugurating the Reformation to the door of the cathedral at Wuertemburg with the remark, "Hier stehe ich--ich kann nicht anders (Here I stand--I cannot do otherwise)". I submit that if a contemporary writer wishes to nail intellectual arguments to a dozen "bulletin boards" as substitutes for cathedral doors, he must have the same right as Martin Luther. The Internet affords us this right, and must be protected at all cost.While newspapers such as the New York Times might have defended their suppression of "Unabomber's" communications as "journalistic responsibility" (an example of the glittering generality which is vague and undefined), it seems realistic to believe simply that the newspapers (justifiably) did not like "Unabomber"and what he was allegedly doing, and therefore refused to publish his "defense". But from any objective viewpoint, the end result was that a major news story was only partially presented--because the whole story wasn't "fit to print", perhaps. Which introduces the obvious fact that newspapers take sides on political issues, endorsing certain candidates and favoring their own choices. There are two local newspapers where I live--one overtly Democratic, and one leaning toward the Republican party --with distinctively different styles. If one writes a letter to the editor of either paper, it may or may not be published--entirely at the editor's discretion. And the usual "free enterprise" response of journalists to critics of editorial fairness seems to be, "it's our newspaper, and freedom of the press means we can print what we want. Start your own newspaper if you don't like it." We have!! It's called the "Internet".

I have NPR to thank for learning about your wonderful website this week. If you don't fear the consequences certain for opposing the likes of this gw, I would encourage you to get in his face and stay there for as long as possible! He reminds me of his father, whining whenever he is questioned or opposed on ANY front. He seems vindictive by nature like his father, too, and, I'd bet he'll use the government to jail as much of the middle class, expendable pawns all, as possible; however he sees fit to advance himself in the process. Here's an interesting (and in my case, anger-provoking) article to illustrate how privileged this guy is - evidenced by his total lack of regard for the war on drugs/all other baby boomers that his father began. Meanwhile scores of baby boomers have been sent to federal prison for lesser crimes than gwbush has committed, so far, since the early sixties.

I just spent time trying to find contact information at www.fec.gov to put my $0.02 in about web sites and PACs - no luck. I also dropped Mr. Bush and e-mail on his site telling him, as a registered voter, he won't be getting my vote with opinions and attitudes like his!
I can't believe the amount of money Bush has to run! So much for campaign finance reform!
I am glad I found your site and many others like it. Keep up the good work.

Dear Editor, I am afraid of former frat rat Bush- especially now, after the straw poll,it looks like he might actually be a serious contender. It is time to look into his campaign financing, instead of only concentrating on his drug use. Although that is extremely vaild. Sincerely, kate

I have a couple of questions for you? First question-Why do you have to use someone's name other than your own to sell products? Are you not able on your own to do so? And the other question:-How come it is a big deal if Bush has done coke, but not a big deal for Clinton to smoke pot & lie, lie, lie about everything? When Clinton was found out about smoking pot, liberals all over made excuses for him, but IF Bush had done coke, then you all turn it into a big deal. I went to a liberal college & I have never seen so many idiots in my life!!!!. Please let me know where you are coming from? I have attached something for you to read that I found truthful and interesting.
Subject: Bush's Cocaine Use
Fact: Bush Jr won't admit to having used drugs more than 7 years ago. Fact: Bush Sr. was head of the CIA when Air America was transporting drugs from Laos to our troops is Saigon. Fact: The CIA used drug money to fund the Iran-Contra affair.
SO, since the Bushs have been so involved with illegal drugs, who much of Bush Jr's campaign money has come from drug overlords?

I tripped into your website because of a news story about George the Second trying to shut you down.
What a cowardly thing to do. How unAmerican! Unless Dubya has something to hide....
Could it be that he is as obviously devoid of value as his sad old Dad??
Just an intellectual husk, stuffed full of what republicans revere most, money, making him their ideal candidate.
Inquiring minds want to know.
And so do I.
These guys have no moral or intellectual validity. They are tiny people with lots of money trying to sell a cardboard personality with NO entertainment value.
At least Dan Quayle has entertainment value!
Dubya's gutless attack on you puts him well on the way to earning the title, GEORGE OF THE BUNGLE.

Yo, Zack. Don't you think it would be a serious mistake to elect a man who has no interest in serving the public good, no desire to work his way up the ranks and no patience to serve any sort of political apprenticeship at the local, grassroots level of government? Really? Neither do I. I can't bring myself to trust a man who is unwilling to serve his state, country or community until offered the top spot. The "command chair" has to be earned, and Junior has done nothing to earn it. Gore may be boring (Lord, is he ever boring!), but at least he was willing to pay his dues.

Subject: drugs or not?
It is very important to know the truth behind G.W. 'S drug addiction or non-addiction. If he did you drugs and was not a rich boy and able to pay for the drugs. He would be no different then any other drug addict who would do most anything to get the fix. Robbing, killing etc. Does it make him any better because he is rich? No! If in fact he did abuse drugs, he should come upfront with it and take the heat the Washington way. The way I see it At least Clinton acknowledged a lot more than Bush is ever going too. How can you trust a person like this to lead our great nation? He won't the N. R. A. will and wouldn't that be just sweet we'll have a rooten-tooten- shooten -cowboy in the white house wouldn't that be just dandy! George bush is not beyond the bounds of personal interference. It's the price you pay for wanting to lead the country. George Bush is no exception!
Yeh Mr. Bush you are such a hypocrite! I am sure you reveled in the firestorm of Clinton's evasive remarks regarding his sexual conduct and also the alleged fact "he never inhaled". How dare you lead the near middle-eastern draconian state of Texas with your background. How dare you aspire to the presidency? I ardently hope you are finished. Bj
Subject: Perseverance Pays Off!
Very heartened to see truth & justice seekers have been instrumental in causing news hounds to keep sniffing up Gdubyas` leg til he`s forced to make excuses for himself (albeit lame ones). No time to let up now! Keep pressing the issue. The issue is not whether he should be allowed to run for office but rather the hypocrisy involved in locking up others who aren`t connected to a family of influence. He has the audacity to make a demand for a statute of limitations on his own past but not for those locked up in his Texas prisons. Amnesty for all those convicted after 1974. ALL! People, speak out now while you still have the freedom to do so. It`s fleeting fast with the likes of Son Of a Bush around. Persevere, start a website of your own, do whatever is your forte, but DO something. I started mine, I put my money and time where my mouth is just like Zack and a few others, courageous and concerned enough have done. Don`t wait around til Shrub crawls back out from under his rock. He`s on the run now...give it all you`ve got while you`ve got the advantage. And if you`ve got time left over come and visit our site: www.politicalparody.com Power To The People, American Woman

What a great web page! Keep asking the questions that the reporters are afraid to ask. Someone needs to do it and thanks to a very foolish move by Bush Jr., you have been given a wonderful opportunity. Perhaps some of his hypocritical friends such as Lamar and Forbes and Gore can join him in a roundtable discussion on important issues.
By the way, you got a wonderful writeup in the San Jose Metro http://www.metroactive.com may I recommend a great web page that I subscribe to http://prorev.com/indexa.htm
It's written by an ex reporter and definitely worth a look, Short articles that have unusual information , such as Gore draining 4 billion gallons down a river so he could float his canoe properly) Now someone wants to see that the power company charges his campaign.

Subject: these cottonpickin press people.....
Hi Zack Please tell the good Gov hello from a fellow West Texan from Monahans. I have an unsolicited suggestion concerning how Gov. Bush might handle one of these crazy questions from the press....If it were me, I would ask a couple of questions:
1. Is this a substantiated story? 2. Who is your source?
the follow-up is obvious. if the reporter is just fishing to create controversy, chances are that he will refuse to disclose sources(since he probably has none)..
I am a conservative who believes that the media needs to be accountable for their behavior just like anyone else. even if this Coke story gets no traction with American people, ya'll can be sure that the (liberal) media will continue to throw anything and everything at the wall just to see what sticks.
By the way, I appreciate the way Gov Bush handled the question of abortion. Please do not let the hardcore "RIGHT" push you guys into a position that will alienate women. In spite of all the rhetoric about drugs, gun control, health care, etc., I sincerely believe that abortion will be the deciding issue for the election. I can't help but think that if you take a neutral stance(born of conviction) that the next Presidency will surely be yours!!!!
Subject: Great work!
I live here in Austin, TX and Bushleague is a blight on the state and the rest of us REAL Texans. Also, as a person who has recovered from alcoholism >5 years I find his 'do as I say not as I do' stance a joke. He is what we call a two-stepper - admits to having a problem and carrying the message to those who still suffer. Except he has not done the 10 steps in-between and would not know that the Big Book of AA states on XIII, '...we have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body...' and it is too bad because Bushleague has done neither of either!
The Republicans deserve this loser.

How about a satire, "thinly veiled", on papa bush's Contra-Cocaine connections and where the shrub got his blow? If he got elected, we'd have all those maniacs running (ruining) our country again.
Subject: Evidence of a history of Bush crimes
Have you checked out www.copvcia.com ? More incriminating evidence about Bush Sr. and the drug cartels. CIA Inspector General's report part 2 admits to drug running. Bush Sr. is also being sued by Bill Tyree , ex green-beret who worked in Colombia for the CIA. This would make a great link. People need to know about this elitist family and their criminal activity. In the 80's if you research Execitive orders you will find that George Bush Sr.created organizzations that put him in control of every border in the US, and drugs got cheaper. KT
Excellent site! It makes the official campaign site look stupid. Hopefully, with enough information coming forward George W. will be exposed as the shallow, evil person that he is. Here in Florida we're stuck with his dim brother who is dragging down the quality of life to the Texas level while his wife smuggles expensive clothing into the country from France. I like the t-shirt but would prefer a poster showing G.W. with that silly smirk of his and some white powder under his nose. The caption should read: Got Coke?
Subject: GO GO GO!!!
Your doing a great job of allowing George W. to come out of his campaign shell and show everyone how he really will behave if elected to the Oval Office. Your websight may just become his excuse to start drinking and using drugs again. He is in denial about his past... Obviously he is not yet ready to truly be in recovery.
His response to this site verifies that "Compasionate Conservatism" is truly an OXYMORON.

Subject: We need George ...
Yes America needs George W. Bush. We need a fresh face. We need a man whose life has been one of opportunity. We need a man who has been bailed out of every situation by simply stating his name. We need a man who gets corporations to buy his failing businesses for millions. We need a man who is tough on drugs (even though he used them). We need a twice born Christian (God knows we don't have enough of them in politics).
Yes we need George Bush ... to get the hell out of politics and make his own living. Unfortunately, even if he is not the candidate, the power he has with his 37 million dollars in campaign contributions insures him the power to affect the GOP for years. We haven't seen the last of him unless we make sure that a Republican is not elected President in 2000. We all need to work hard for honesty. We all need to encourage everyone to speak out against a man who has no idea what our lives are like and has sold his soul to big business. A George W. Bush Presidency would not feel "fresh as a summer's breeze". It would be filled with paybacks to all his bug business buddies. That's all he knows. He grew up with it and now he knows, "when someone gives you cash, you pay them back".
We need to wake up. He and Steve Forbes are not like the other candidates. Their type of evil would destroy the America that our founding fathers defined, that our brave veterans fought for and that we count on to make our children's lives good.
Come on America, wake up, speak out, get goofballs like Bush, Forbes, Pat Buchanan, Dan Quayle and Gary Baurer out of politics by writing your newspapers, voting, putting up signs and bumper stickers, talking to your neighbors, etc. Let's take this country back from big business. We have the vote and that means we have the power.
Before his current wife, wasn't "the W" engaged very suddenly and then, just as suddenly, disengaged? My understanding is that he knocked up some chick and then got her an abortion.
Another thing I've heard--the Midland police once got a call in the night from a desperate Mrs. George W, begging them to stop her husband from beating the shit out of her.
