<b>There is a real chance that Alpha1 is correct on the "no bounce" because minds are allready set prediction.</b> That's what I'm thinking.

So you'll be ticked off, L-188. Boo hoo. Want a box of kleenex?Jump to post
Refer to me however you want, sir. I'll just ignore your ass whenever you do it, and keep on going.
The thing is, such lables BOTHER you guys. They don't do shit to me. So fire away.
WOOF WOOF WOOF.
The RWAK's pounce in force.
Hey guys-want to make the author stop his incessant, and thrice-daily (at least) threads about Mr. Bush?
Although that's no fun, is it?
Another ignorant statement from L-188. What else is new. Kerry can campaign and still leave the spotlight to Bush. why should the opposition relax because their rival is taking the nomination? Amazing, you seem to condone character assassination as a legit form of campaigning, but you squeal like a ...Jump to post

<b>Their campaign is running scared on all fronts.</b> ROTFLMAO! You make Kerry sound like the incumbent in the fight for his life.

Colin Powell should not have planned to attend anyway. It was an unnecssary politicization of the Olympics.

Tbar, that's one of the thoughts going around-send the defending NBA Champion.

Ok, I think I figured this out! On the overall map, I've moved Colorado, Missouri, West Virgina and Florida to the Bush column, but all as tossups.

Anyone who doesn't follow B757300's extreme, RWAK dogma, and just bow to whatever Bush says, is not a good enough Republican for me. The fact is, McCain is more of a true Republican than B757300 will ever be in his lifetime, because he doesn't just tow the line and nod his head.Jump to post

And you're not taking breaks to put in any facts, either, L-188.
