Fellow Republicans:

Do not respond to this media inquiry.

After you read the law on this subject, you won't want to tell the media anything.

Anon,

Wow. What are you all afraid of? What do you have to hide?

Yeah, because your little journey into election falsification just shows the true colors of your party!

Lets start hearing some names of those who changed parties for the sole purpose of defeating Obama and setting McBush up against Hillary. Those of you who made such a stand let your names be heard, a few of us would like to have the opportunity to sit down and 'talk' with you about your values and party loyalty.

My name is Bill Smith and I voted for Hillbilly on Tuesday.
Since then, Hillbilly's campaign has been slinging mud so I'll change my mind and vote McCain in November.

hey 9:54...did you sit down to talk with DEMS who crossed over for McCain in 2000 to knock out Bush? Of course you didn't...hypocrisy thy name is democrat.
hey 9:16!
Election falsification? HA!
Think Kennedy/Nixon 1960...we R's who crossed over could never descend to the depths of "falsification" as your side does with aplomb.Vote early-vote often...the Chicago DEMS credo.

As opposed to the legions of crossover democrats that tainted the early Republican primaires to prevent Mitt Romney from being the nominee.

Mitt Romney doesn't count, he's not even human. Robots can't be president.

Face it: The vast majority of Americans were turned off by Romney.

I know it's hard for Cincinnati-style Republicans of the Lindner/Farmer ilk to believe that, but it's true.

Does it occur to Howard, a Democrat, to survey fellow Democrats who crossed over and voted for Republicans?

Give no indication to the media & the dems how you voted.
They will see the error in their ways when republicans take control back from the tax & spend & tax some more croud!!

If I need a car I work, I buy it. If I need food , I work I buy it.
If I need a drink, I work I buy it.
If I choose to smoke, I work I buy it.
If I need medicine, I work I buy it.
If I need a boat, I work I buy it.
If I need a lawnmower, I work I buy it.
If I need health insurance, I work I buy it.
If my kid needs schooling, I work I buy it.
If I need gas, I work, I buy it.
If I go to church, I work, I support it.
If I need....., I work I buy it!!!

Notice a pattern??
Is there something wrong with this pattern??
Or should I just turn to some government official, office or service to supply all these needs for me??
If all my needs are met by government::

I choose not to work !!!!

I received this email a couple years ago, it was not credited.

Is there a problem profiling Muslim men in this country??

HISTORY TEST

Please pause a moment, reflect back, and take the following multiple choice test. The events are actual cuts from past history. They actually happened!!!

Do you remember?

-1968 Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by
a.. Superman
b. Jay Lenno
c. Harry Potter
d. Muslim male extremist between the ages of 17 and 40

1. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by

Nope, .....I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?

So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone because of profiling..


As the writer of the award winning story "Forrest Gump" so aptly put it,
"Stupid is as stupid does."

Thank you anon 10:42. Please explain what this has to do with for whom or even if someone voted in last week's primary. Though perhaps you meant to remind us all that it is Chimpy Bush-Cheney-Hitlerburton's Fatherland Security Department that started this profiling and harassment nonsense, which is an unnecessary violation of Constitutional freedoms regardless of who is or is not targeted.

2:21...promise me one thing...you never run for office.your mentality is what will get us all killed.
guess what...the insane muslims couldn't give a rat's rump about your party affiliation...think of that if end up on a hijacked aircraft headed for a tall building.

10:42/2:21 is a fear mongering idiot. A Useless Idiot.

McBush 7 McCheney have made us Americans less safe and more hated around the world than ever. They made Iraq into an Iranian puppet theocracy and terrorist haven. It will take years to undue the damage that these idiota have dome to our economy, military and foreign policy.

John W. McSame is offering 4 more years of McBush/McCheney. America cannot survive 4 more years of fleecing by these GOP criminals.

You know the Repugs are getting desperate when they drag out the fear-the-muslims card. And it's only March. Losing Hastert's seat must have shaken them up bad. With all the Repugs bailing out rather than facing certain defeat at the polls, we're going to end up with a veto-proof house and filibuster-proof Senate, easily. So far, this cycle is going even better for Dems than 2006 did.
