Remember Florida in 2000 when Repubs were defending late arriving ballots....

.....from U.S. Military overseas? This because "Dubya" did well with the military vote. Won't be seeing that so much this year.

1. Irony needs a full body cast.

Dubya (or "Shrub" to Molly Ivins) never went overseas, yet managed to go AWOL anyway.

His two opponents, Al Gore and John Kerry, went to Vietnam and Bush still got the military vote over them.

Also, tough-talking guys like Reagan and John Wayne never served one day (while the Allies were fighting fascism).

And then there's the picture on DU the other day of Fred Trump decked out in full military uniform. Was he a loser, a sucker, or both? Knowing Donnie, Fred was meeting a dominatrix who outranked him.

3. Those tiny bandaids with the little purple heart on them that they passed out at...

....their convention still piss me off. Diminishing John Kerry's service and wounds.

6. As usual, up is still down for those rodents.

Dems were always considered the "Commie pinkos" throughout the Cold War, yet today's GOP (Government of Putin) has collected more rubles than dollars in their campaign war chests.

These are Fascist pinkos who have adopted red for their party's official color.

4. Remember the "Brooks Brothers Protests" because they had flown in party faithful...

.....still dressed for Capitol Hill and told them to protest at the county offices.

5. Yes they were all congressional staffers. Not exactly a legitimate protest.

So we were paying their salaries while they did this. It was infuriating. But it mustíve worked for them
