...until today. My German co-worker walked into the office this morning and triumphantly slapped a movie brochure on my desk. "I saw Fahrenheit 9/11 this weekend, and if you saw it there's no way you'd vote for Bush." Thank goodness I could respond, "I have seen the movie, and I most certainly will still be voting for Bush. You're crazy if you think that movie is going to change my mind." Took the wind right out of her sail. "You've seen it? Oh." Boo-yah.
Heh, check the comments section; my husband cracks me up. As time goes on, I grow more and more amazed that he ever gave me the time of day. I'm the luckiest person in the world.
Sarah - good for you. It's sad that MM is allowed to show that movie as "FACT" when it's mostly distorted facts and half-truths. I'm glad MOST of us know better.

Print this out and slap it on your incredibly gullible boss' desk: http://www.davekopel.org/terror/59Deceits.pdf

Yeah, and if you read Protocols of the Elders of Zion there would be no way you could vote for Joe Lieberman. What a crock!

Joe Lieberman is Jewish?

'Bout time you started checking in, Blue Six! Keep up the good work, and know that this ol' ex squid is 100% backing you up in my thoughts and prayers!
Nuts, Sarah! I guess now I'll have to go ahead and fork over the dough and go watch MM's garbage; of course, I'll do so in Columbia, MO (home of Mizzou, which boasts one of the finest liberal journalism schools on the planet). Might be fun, though. BTW, check out Lt. Smash's latest report. Cool!
Grace and peace,
