okay okay. I will blame it on the lack of archives. But I thought
you brought up all these points when Bush's intelligence was
questioned so it kind of came off that way to me. I am not sure exactly
your point. I never hear conservatives talk about how smart
liberals are either. Isn't the idea that each think they are smarter.
I will come out and say it though. I do think Bush is pretty unintelligent. If
you want I can pull up this discussion by a person who
closely worked with Bush and helped get him elected.
He listed all of these very common knowledge things that Bush never heard
of---he commented how he thought it did show there was a lack of
curiosity there.

that Onion article is hysterical (everybody check it out
Operation Desert Off!
  "These cowards want to bring down our very way of life," Bush said. "They
have sought to rob us of our ability to leave the house without repellent. But
what they did not count on is the tremendous spirit and resolve of the
American people. No one, be they man or mosquito, will dictate what we put or
don't put on our skin for protection."
