He (Bush) has shown a consistent pattern of making major league mistakes when discussing his pubic-policy proposals

Give this guy a chance. Just because he can't talk good doesn't mean he isn't smart and stuff.

Haha! Just kidding!

I'm sure we'll be a whole lot better with GORE leading the country, I mean, does it matter if he a compulsive lier? Or has the social maners of an impatient 5 year old?

Mheh heh. Pubic policy. Tit for tat. Mheh heh heh.

Look. If we weren't already way past the whole last-straw thing already with these two dinks, ifI wasn't already sick of the insulting mudslinging and you're-dumber-than-me that we'll have to deal with for the next three weeks (we still have three more weeks of this tripe?), if I wasn't already sick beyond words at the new frontiers in boredom that these two pretty-much-identical machines are making us endure, this would be the last straw here.

As it is, though, it's just more mechanical spouting. It's noise, and they're not even bothering to copyedit this crap anymore. A pox on all of it.

If the reason you are voting for GWBush is that you think Gore is a complsive liar and/or has the social manners of a 5 year old I think you need to look a little more deeply into the political issues at stake in this election.

P.S. Go Nader!

Positive blogging? metafilter's own talking about the positives in what we have to say. Although attacks against personal characters aka. "character assassinations" seems big come election time. I simply post this since positive comments certainly aren't abound when Al Gore/GW Bush names are inserted into the topic.

Maybe that was attacks against people blogging about other bloggers no?

Find me an article that points out that politics is more than finding flaws in the challenger and may actually leave you feeling a little respect towards the CIC. I guess what I'm trying to say is, what, if any, are the changes that will lead to a reversal of the cynicism that many if not all feel towards politicians? Here's the chance to show what seperates a "third party" choice from the other two.

Well, at least Yahoo's Daily News isn't.

After all, this is a typo on Yahoo's part, not a Gore staffer making a verbal slip so often attributed to Bush. (that is, unless somebody trumps me with a sound clip proving otherwise)

I predict that the next political conventions in 2004 will feature "The Rain In Spain Falls Mainly In The Plain" as their theme music.

Bah! Gore is a liar? Bush is intellectually-deficient? They aren't your only choices, folks. Harry Browne wants you to be free. Vote Libertarian!

Yeah, yeah, and there's always Buchanan and Hagelin and Duke and even that plant, absolutely. And I do apologize for having nothing nice to say about these two clones.

But I do feel powerless. I don't want to vote out of fear, and yet that's all I'm hearing out of Gore and Bush, their camps or their supporters.

If someone has something genuinely positive to say about Al Gore or George Bush, I'd love to hear it.

I've got something positive: Both Bush and Gore make for good late-night television. So we're assured that whichever one wins, we can look forward to four more years of funny TV! Thank you, Bush and Gore!
