Opposing Bush - A Form of Mental Illness?
It's not the stolen election or the war crimes committed in my name. It's not the fact Bush is a liar and a criminal. It's not the Strausscons in the White House and the Pentagon, plotting multiple wars in the Middle East and elsewhere. It's not Congress, sold out to neolibs, multinational corporations, and Wall Street loan sharks.

It's me......

1. This is surreal!
Worried about republicans hacking the vote makes one mentally ill?

Is he aware that a republican in Florida had a program created to do exactly that? That was offered in sworn testimony. I have seen the video.

Or that Katherine Harris, head of *'s campaign in Florida, lost a lawsuit concerning her gerrymandering in the 2000 election? Not that she would ever be charged by the republican controlled government mind you.

Or the fact that republicans are fighting to NOT have any sort of paper trail in our voting system?

If this were democrats doing any of the above, would Frist be accusing his fellow repukes of being mentally ill?

Or would they be hammering us on every news show, every single media outlet they control, 24/7?

Truly scary stuff.

2. Satire. It's not a real report. It's not true. It's satire.

3. Whoops!
The sad thing is? I can totally picture Frist saying and doing something like this.

4. I know. Me too. And so can a lot of us, which is why this sounds so
believable. (As an aside, I think the satire is not well done--that is, there should be something in it to give it away, the way the Onion does. It shouldn't be fooling people this way. That's kind of dangerous.)

5. I agree.
Perhaps I am just a paranoid idiot, or just numb from the constant barrage of outrageous things the GOP gets away with a daily basis.

But I was seriously ready to start writing letters. LOL

Would have looked the complete fool had I done that.
