I'm so mad...
I don't know if I can even stay at work right now. I work at a radio station in Fairhaven, MA and some moron sheep down the hall said "There's no doubt Bush will win in November. His poll numbers are higher than they've ever been!" I instantly corrected him there and proceeded to ask him if he was high. He then said that there haven't been any terrorist attacks on the states since 9/11. I of course told him that 9/11 could have been prevented if shitfuck numbnuts had been paying attention. THis kid totally fits the profile of a Bush voter. I don't like to pick on physical appearance, but they tend to be scrawny geeky whiye guys with an inferiority complex that don't do any research. I'm so angry right now that I'm almost tempted to go down the hall to debate him. Give me strength! Help me find peace.

You'll just get yourself in trouble. There will be other moments when you can be more effective.

3. Ack! He's at work and he's angry...!

NOT the time to act, unless you want him to possibly get in trouble, imo.

4. Let it slide
Write a letter to your local editor regarding bush or the war, whatever. You will be a source of strength to those who believe as you do and you might even enlighten a fence sitter. This guy at work sounds like a lost cause.

Keep the faith, baby. ;)

5. Thanx for the insight...
I'm just bashing him on my radio show. He works at the top 40 station. I'm at the rock station.

6. Write a letter to the Cape Cod Times
but then again, your colleague probably doesn't read.

I have to agree about the Bush supporters. When Bush was in town here in Boston, the white boys supporting him were definitely the type that got the shit kicked out of them in High School.

7. Are you in a pivotal state?
Choose your battles appropriately...

My parents live in NY and have neighbors who are "children-of-inheritence" repugs. They are always going off on how wonderful *ush is. My Mom smiles knowing that Kerry is going to romp w's ass in NY by high double-digits.

On the other hand, I live in Florida...
