I stand by my original impression:
Marie Claire magazine did presidential election coverage between the two major candidates back when they were both running and Clinton was leaving office.
This magazine is a publication whose focus group is women. It's a women's magazine that covers women's issues monthly along with all of their other content. Not the NY Times, but a decent and fun publication that happens to bring topics like abortion rights, genital mutilation, and the rape and suffering of women around the world to the table for our consideration and enlightenment.
Each candidate was given one full page to discuss why American WOMEN should vote for him.
Al Gore did a fair job (I wasn't a supporter of his, but he tried) and discussed various child care, birth control, abortion, and fair pay issues relevant to women. He used the word "women" or some variation of that over 40 times in one page.
George Bush, on the other hand, neglected to speak about a single relevant topic, focusing instead on military and financial topics. He had not ONE SINGLE REFERENCE on or in his page referring to women, girls, ladies, etc., and did not ONCE even acknowledge a single topic that might be particularly relevant to female voters. He didn't even BOTHER.
He managed to take what was, IMO, a fantastic opportunity to "sell himself" politically and piss it away.
I did NOT vote for him (nor did I vote for Gore, but that's a different subject entirely) and I feel quite strongly that his record speaks for itself.
I would vote for David Duke before I voted for Dubya.
I have to say, though, I LOVE the quotes page. Kind of like that Bush speech generator- have you all seen that?
Also, try this site for hilarious quotes and commentary. It's one of my favorites, and some of the quotes have audio files.
Two of my favorites:
There are a couple of cows waiting for me. You know, when I first got back from Washington, it seemed like the cows were talking back. But now that I've spent some time in Crawford, they're just cows.
