America takes its first, fumbling baby steps into the 21st century. There are problems we'd like to avoid, but problems we must face. Courageously, the Republican party confronts us with the key challenge of our age ...
Evidently, a gay Mexican couple plans to sneak over the border, get married, open up an abortion clinic and burn the American flag.

Caught the debate. We're screwed, folks. It's over.
George W. Bush was a twisted combination of righteousness (praise Jesus!) and a bad boy, cowboy attitude (pass the goddamn ammunition!) He's going to win. I knew it the second I saw the fucker.
There he was debating Al Gore. Gore was talking like a boring chemistry professor and saying things that made people feel bad. ("You kids should really clean up after yourselves. I am appalled to see the lab sink is filled with unwashed titration flasks.") Bush came off like Richard Dawson on Family Feud, grinning, shucking and jiving. ("Hey, pops. I got better damn things to do than wash your stinky old bottles.") The camera loved him.
Bush is going to win.
