We made the German Press! Women Leave Bush Waiting!
Here is the link to an article in the German Press:

http://www.blick.ch/news/uswahlen/artikel16291



Frauen lassen Bush warten
WASHINGTON George W. Bush hat etwas geschafft, was bisher nur zwei US-Prsidenten vor ihm fertig gebracht haben. Stolz kann er darauf allerdings nicht sein.

6. That just about sums it up
Rearing up the beautiful sex took two hours against the most powerful man of the world -
Then one announced the final result of the urn course from 2 November 2004. Bush: 268 voices, Kerry 252.

7. It's funny the way this article framed Thursday as "women
keep Bush waiting" for his certification. Shows their sexism, heh?

19. I don't think so
Actually since (as per translation) it says that the beautiful sex kept 'the most powerful man in the world' waiting, I read this as a tip of the hat to beautiful sex for not bowing to the power-mad dick. Referring to the two women as members of "the beautiful sex" in this context was, I think, a tiny prick of German political comedy. Tee-hee.

10. I liked this line:
"Bush is only a third president, whose official re-election lasts somewhat longer, as normal."

stolen election, makes me feel a little better about it all, the mess of Democracy or lost there of it.

16. Hehe, thats good, I like the headline on the side
"Michael of the Moorlands wills do not leave!"

Hehe, an almost biblical statement from Michael Moore, now the Right will say hes a false prophet and stone him :silly:

17. No, the RW will say the lefties are calling Michael Moore
their profit - their false god, and then they will label him the Anti-christ, if they haven't already done so.

imagination.
