Jim McTague on Fox news

Says that the Republicans have more money, ergo they will win.
He says that dollars equal grass roots support.

One word-- Astroturf.

This is entirely about laying the backstory frame for election theft 2006.
Ok, that and giving the deciderer some happy talk video to watch
so he will stop running around his cage and flinging poo at the staff.

7. Indeed I am.
I lost my driver's license after my stroke, (visual deficit, balance problems, vertigo) took a year riding a tadpole bent trike, and got enough balance back to ride a 2 wheeled bent.
That was 4 years ago, and I ride for most of my trips around town, if the weather isn't too cold (my stroke affected side can't handle the cold).

I converted the bent in the photo to above seat steering last spring, and it is my favorite ride.

8. Cool.
I've never tried one yet, I just bought my first bike in 20+ years (Trek SU100) and took to the streets again.

It doesn't seem like exercise, it's more like being 9 years-old again and I'm having a ball. :)

The first 30 minutes back in the saddle were absolutely terrifying, but I guess you don't ever forget how (insert cliche here.)

I had a friend ride the BAK (Bike Across Kansas) this year and report that though the standard bikes would beat the 'bents on the hills, the 'bents would catch and pass then on the flats.

He said they were REALLY moving. :wow:

Anyway...I just had to ask. ;)


Long live the two (and three) wheeled revolution. :headbang:

2. McTague's biased
He's been a Repuglican as long as I've known him, which is since 1975.

4. Even the Faux talking heads
were incredulous. That intro about barron's being reliable must have stung a bit.
