93. Hmm, sounds like a politely worded swipe at me-nice "connecting" you've got going on. Not.
FYI-For years on another message board I was on before I came to DU, I tried to "connect" with the rethugs there. Yup, I bent over backwards to try and get them to "understand" us democrats. After the election of '04 was stolen, I finally realized that they were a lost cause and that they didn't give a damn about anyone but themselves. That's why I'm very cynical and jaded about diehards rethugs changing anytime soon.
