How to decode Republican messages:
It's simple. Just cancel the negations.

Examples:

"I am not a crook" = "I am a crook."

"Trent's departure had nothing to do with a scandal" = "Trent's departure had to do with a scandal"

1. haha.. And when they blame someone, assume they mean
"I" instead of whomever is being blamed.

Examples:
"Democrats spend like a teenager with a credit card." becomes "I spend like a teenager with a credit card."

"Bill Clinton has no morals" becomes "I have no morals"

7. HEY - Iraq has WMD and Valerie Plame is just an insignificant desk jockey
Lurkers could not possibly be offended. They are proud of their ignorance.

HI KANSDEM. I think the Jayhawks should be in the BCS championship game and no one can tell me why they should not be.

9. You got to give the Jayhawks a lot of credit!
I attended KU in the early 1980s, and KU football was somewhat of a joke then. We would ask each other, "Goin' to the KU game this weekend?" (*wink**wink**nudge**nudge*), then break out into guffaws. But their 11-0-0 record before the "big game" has us alumni quite impressed.

No one is winking and nudging any more! ;)

11. I'm rather hard headed on the subject
If one loss is okay for Missouri and OSU and West Virginia, why isn't it okay for Kansas? No one can answer. And OSU is just sitting back waiting for something bad to happen to another team. What a way to run a "tournament." It seems when you lose is more significant then who you lost to. Kansas lost to the number one team in the nation and just barely. OSU lost at home to an unranked team.

Maybe Arkansas and Kansas in the Cotton Bowl. I hope not. We would literally be a house divided although since the prima donna fans ran off Houston Nutt, my alma mater is in my dog house for awhile.

5. President Bush doesn't lie.
Invading Iraq had nothing to do with oil.

Nobody could have imagined....

It works beautifully!
