Cockburn Endorses Barr?

Well, maybe not quite, but I'd say it's close to it. Petrolia resident and writer, Alexander Cockburn, points out that, if Bob Barr gets elected to the presidency, he'd be the first president with a moustache since Teddy Roosevelt.

Good point. Makes me glad I voted for Bob Barr.

Alexander Cockburn's opinions are worth reading, but his shrill tone does nothing to further his causes.

His problems with Senator Obama are legitimate, as is his belief that more voters should support third parties, but most of us mere mortals simply want to put the Bush regime behind us, and the threat of a Bush/McCain packed Supreme Court is just too dark to contemplate.

"the threat of a Bush/McCain packed Supreme Court is just too dark to contemplate.".

As is the threat of a Obama/Biden packed court.

That said, I was reading something some time ago about the Supreme Court where the writer pointed out that the different president's appointees often don't vote as one would expect (and often fear).

I don't recall who the guy was or the examples he gave. If I run in to that piece again I'll post it here.

One recent example of such rulings was the Republican appointed judge who ruled in favor of same- sex marriage.

Reagans's appointments turned out to be some of the more liberal justices.

The Presidents ALL have had mustaches. It's just that they shave them very close to the skin every day - so no one will know.

Zorba the Greek would have me say "most of we"?

OK stranger. Have it your way: "...us want to put the Bush regime..."

Only 80 more days.
