Who's your alma mater? (Cubin gets ridiculous)


By TOM MORTON
Star-Tribune staff writer Friday, October 22, 2004

Wyoming's leading U.S. House candidates dueled with diplomas on Thursday over the significance of where the other was educated.

Voters who live among mobile populations in urban areas may shrug off a candidate's birth, upbringing and education.

But voters in a state that's only a few generations removed from the frontier may perceive pedigree with much more importance.

Incumbent Republican Rep. Barbara Cubin launched into Democratic challenger Ted Ladd's background and its implications during a luncheon for the Natrona County Republican Women.

Ladd, she said, has lived in Wyoming for fewer than three years.

"He has only been registered to vote in Wyoming in the 2002 election; that's the only time he's ever been (here) to vote," she said.

3. So who needs a pedigree?
Her college was in Nebraska!

Any one with a GED or High School Diploma can SHOW UP and do better
than a Republican!

+++

Paper ballots--vote count videotaped--post all ballots on web for examination. You can make it happen! (Impeach the voting machine companies!) Let's inaugurate Democrats in WY, SD and all states, and have our OWN elections every 2 months!

My message is--elect Democrats every 2 months---

Here's how we can paint South Dakota Ultra-Blue! This will work for
any state in the USA--do this in your state- start an UDO group!

After the election, I decided to change things. I decided we needed to have our own elections-- 6 times a year!

Check out UDO!

Wanna OutBLUE people in a Red County? Check out my Yahoo Group--

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sd_democrats_UDO /

Let's start a state wide UDO (Ultra Democratic organization)--

first elections December 2004!

(Anyone can join the Yahoo group)

Thanks!

2. Wolf's (R) ad in VA-10 called Socas a carpetbagger
Granted it is the first time Wolf has been scared enough to buy tv time in the 6 years I have lived in the district. If Socas is smart he will hit Wolf on the fact that the county where most of the district is located happens to get some of the lowest %age of Federal money in the country.
