And now today in Florida:

I just received the following email from the Jack Carter camp regarding election fraud, and I thought that I would share it with everyone here:



There are lots of reaaly good arguments by liberals and democratic voters for our candidates on this blog. Using repuke on DU is one thing, but like anything, when it's second nature it slips out in mixed company.

4. And your problem with this is...?
Repukes is one of the nicer terms I commonly use for the fascist sons of bitches.

5. I have a problem with these kinds of names - makes us sound childish
and petty.

We have enough to use against these people without resorting to juvenile namecalling - it brings us down to their level.

9. Why not just call them Republicans - and then say what you think of them?
It would make your message much more effective.

19. You're absolutely correct. I call the "pundits" right-wing gasbags from time
to time, but the cute little nicknames like "repukes" blunt the message, I believe.

21. True - stooping to their level blurs the difference between us and them
to the point that the only apparent distinction between us is the direction in which the bile is being spewn.

11. This use of repukes ended up on an MSM blog where we are trying to
get undecided and democratic leaning voters to vote for Brown, Strickland, Wulsin and Cranley.

These people are hated for a reason.

22. I'm sure the MSM will love your fair and balanced bumpersticker ...
Karl "Rat Fucker" Rove and "Uncle Tom" Blackwell?

Kettle, meet black.

25. It's not a bumpersticker it is a website that only lefties visit. It's on DU...
not on an MSM blog where I behave with the utmost respect but also impeccable grammer and spelling. I would never put the image in my sig on my car, because it would not be helpful. http://bushcheated04.com is about educating about election fraud by using satire. It was never meant for a mass audience.

24. Yeah - let's just behave as childishly as they do. THAT'll show 'em!
And, even better, that will make voters feel SO much better about our side if we prove to them we're as juvenile and petty as the other side is.
