True that. I could swear that I recently saw a video of Hilly here playing GTA with a special hot coffee mod where all the male pedestrians were called Billy and the female ones Monica and where you could cut the male NPCs dicks off and weird crap like that! You could hear the UT-like in-game announcer's voice yell out "killing spree" and "rampage" every three seconds or so… there's peaceful Hilly for ya!

Well, I didn't need another strike against her socialist a$$, but that really blows me away. Obviously while Bill wasn't inhaling, she wasn't busy sucking on a crack pipe.

Edit: re: JemyM's search post.

Edit; Has anybody figured out that I am one of the 2 McCain votes?

I'm just hoping that the Ice Queen is polarizing enough to turn away the moderates. I don't see where the Republicans will be able to overcome all the second guessing on the war, though, so I'd say the Ice Queen is as good a bet as any, which is scary.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Although I'd be sacrificing some good hockey, I'd recommend Mexico. Warmer, the border crossing would be far easier, plus all the Mexicans have moved to Indianapolis.

if the elections were down to just mccain and hillary i'd opt for mccain. i've always respected the guy though i've never voted for a republican (unless you count ross perot in 1996) even though after turning 18 until 2 years ago i was registered one. now i'm registered green. i still think hillary has absolutely no chance unless she somehow has made a pact with satan not that it has any bearing but all 4 votes for her on this poll so far are from people living outside the u.s.

that said i hope barack obama can tackle the many obstacles he faces as i think he would make a fine president.

All you youngsters can skip this one since you probably won't know the reference…

I'd like to teach the World to sing
in detuned harmony
I'd like to buy the World a phaser
And make it reverb-y.

Oh yeah, I've got a glowing future in marketing jingles and international politics.

I was of course, being sarcastic….although I do find myself embarassed by Hillary and all her ilk, (and Britney Spears and Halliburton and a whole bunch of other things which are pretty well expressed by the underwear simile. )
Your point is still well taken. All these rings of the media circus are there to sell papers, or whatever. They have as little to do with real life and what the average american is as a superbowl commercial has to do with sports.

Don't quit yer day job, but that was kind of a catchy rhyme

@Corwin
You have politicians in Oz??? Is that something to do with Australia leading the world in number of poisonous species?

I hadn't ever considered that, but you might just be on to something here; politicians and poisonous species!! I do see the similarities!! Oh, and I didn't think BS wore underwear, or am I missing something again!!

Even though I'm not an US resident, I would like to see Hillary Clinton as the new US president. However there may come some other interesting candidates.

BTW (I know I could look this up somewhere) - would this be your first female president?

Yes - there hasn't been a female Pres or Vice Pres yet.

It will be interesting to see how Hillary gets handled - in the NY Senate race she was given a 'pass' by the press for being the 'former first lady' and got no real tough questioning or investigating … and she has been able to shrug off anything from her past with a simple 'we've already been through *that* before'. I just wonder whether or not those looking at these things will dig deeper and ask tougher questions this time - not that I'm looking to rehash endlessly stupid little things from 30 years ago like happened last time 'round …

Talking about election fever

In june this year wel will choose a new federal governement (yes, we are a lot smaller then the US, but Belgium consists out of two parts. A Flemmish one and I don't know the English word for the other part (Waals -> Welsh doesn't sound right for our UK friends I think)
This will be an important one for us, due to the fact that some parties will try to get more authority (power) to the parts instead of the inclarity we are in now. Sometimes they are 3 ministers responsable on the different levels for the same stuff.
Oh yeah a more or less important fact is that in Belgium it's still your duty to vote not just your right. For me it's a little different cause my firm supports the voting PC's. (I have to work on election day)

so very, very tired (Star Trek XI quote according to the Simpsons)

For who are you going to vote Bartacus?
And how can you vote if you have to work?
I am thinking about voting for Dedecker because he is also for the fraction of Belgium in Flanders and Walonnië.
can't find the points of his party, sadly enough

I find it really sad that I know almost nothing about your government in Belgium. By federal, do you mean president, elected representatives, etc? How many parties do you have?Are you facing any of the difficulties with imigration that the Netherlands and U.S. are? Unless something pretty earthshaking happens over there, we don't hear much.

We get excused early from work-(unpaid of course )to go vote here.
