76. Karl Rove counts on the Dems to be
nice, civil, and polite. "The Dems are too nice to fight."

I'm like you, itzamirakul, a fighter. Some people aren't. So I ask the Dems....why can't we have both? Let those of us who are fighters, fight. And those who prefer politeness, be polite. What's wrong with that?

But I think we all have to agree that what we've been doing has not worked. And remember a campaign is different from everyday governing. Negativity is remembered THREE times as much as positivity. That's just how it is. We need to fight like there is no tomorrow in this '06 campaign. Cuz if we don't get SUBPOENA POWER with this election, I think we're beyond toast. We'll be fried.

It's now or never.

Lots of us are not afraid to play with Karl on the playground. I enjoy taking down the bully.
