Agreement here ... and we should still BOYCOTT FRANCE for their betrayal of the world (not just the US) by action/inaction with/against Iraq!
* New Site! Republican Films :) ... direct link to a mini-film showing lots of Clinton's quotes about the THREAT IRAQ POSED TO THE US, and to the world; and saying he also believed Iraq had WMDs ... quote from Clinton:"Saddam has spent the better part of this decade ... developing nuclear, chemical and biological weapons" ...

Its actually kinda sad ... aside from the fact that (obviously) I am pretty much Pro Bush, it is a sad state of affairs when something as important as a ballot for an election (especially a national one, for President no less!) has apparently NO QA process. Anyway, let's appreciate the humor in it and just be happy it was a very small sample, and *should* be corrected for the most part.
