2. The reason why I think their statements may hurt us at least a little is
that, first, they confer a legitimacy on the Diabolical Chimp that is conterproductive to our efforts; and second, they might cause a few people who would otherwise vote Democratic to stay home, thinking "Same old wimp-ass Dems :eyes:".

Beyond that it's just really frustrating to see that politicial figures we look to for leadership still don't get that Bush is NOT OUR FUCKING PRESIDENT, and that he deserves no more respect or deference than he has displayed himself in these past six nightmarish years. :grr:
