36. Screw it, I think you are being WAY too naieve
We can't shrink to the low moral ground of the Repukelikins. We need to respect our system of rules and give him the benefit of the doubt - he won within the rules.

So did Gore, but he isn't in the White House

Arnold is a Republican, but he has come out as being rather liberal. I think if we support these positive points of Arnold, it will piss of the right and make them hate him.

You are dreaming. First, Arnold is not even part liberal. He loves money too much. He is a libertarian psycho. And do you honestly think the right will hate him? That would mean they would admidt their failing, which they NEVER do. Plus, most of them have good reasons to hate Bush, but their support for him is still very strong.

Look, we know what we stand for, we know that its right to take the high ground and follow the rules, we know that we belive in every Americans rights.

But the right is full of ravenous, Godless (they say they believe in one, but they are full of shit), hateful, racist, sexist, classit assholes who would kill their own mothers for fifty bucks. Worse off, they are liars. And they tell very appealing lies.

The high ground gets us NOWHERE.

When does the recall start?
