I know Obama is still trying to fight off that "elitist" BS, but PBR? Has the man no respect for his taste buds and stomach? (Well, he must have some - at least he didn't ask for Genny Cream Ale...)

Genny Cream

Don't be talking smack about Genny Cream, that is good stuff.

Wake Forest won't play us anymore
Michigan last year
LSU - you are next


Steamers and Screamers....summertime's favorite duo in my hometown in Upstate NY. Only the finest for my proud white trash family!

(that's steamed clams and genny cream ale for you limo-liberals out there)

PS....anyone else out there think PBR is getting way too trendy? ; )


is good enough for me. And not way too trendy.

Red Stripe. Hooray Beer! That's too trendy.

awesome. organizer asking, how should we run our campaign, people telling them how to run it, organizer writing it down and responding

- - - - -
McCain - The Third Bush Term

organizer answering tons o questions

this kid is on task, answering everykind of question with respect and knowledge

people asking him huge questions, how do we make elections more democratic, right on down to small ones, what is the best way to leave lit on doors?

someone (potential volunteer) saying that the DMV isn't doing a good job registering people to vote. people think they are, but not. no verification of this, just someone saying so.

How about those perched precariously

on the fence between young and old, cursing with tear-stained eyes at the relentless march of Time, the few remaining memories of youth stained with the regret of lost opportunities...

Sorry. I'm really, really bored. And now I'm depressed, to boot. ;/

Oh fergoodnessake.


We are the generation that was too young to protest the Vietnam war, but we got to watch the whole damn thing on tee vee. That and Watergate, too. And now, we're too busy actually working to leave everything behind to go work full-time for the most exciting candidate who has come around in our lifetime.

But pick yourselves up out of that depression, and for the love of all that is holy, don't watch "The Way We Were". Get ready for a fantastic 4th. If you don't have a parade to march in, come to Carthage, NC and march with the Moore County Dems. We're coming on loud and proud and ain't no one going to bring us down!

Get excited.

Oh Steve!

Hope you're feeling a bit better this morning than you were last night. Make a donation to Graig's page, and c'mon to the party next week.

What a great idea this is! I'll be looking for you, dammit.
