Soaring over Georgia
As the campaign manager for the write-in campaign for Mary Beth Guard for President, I must protest this poll. I demand a recount and a Supreme Court hearing.

I'm voting for Mary Beth Guard. If she can keep all the rowdies on this board in line, she'll have no problem keeping Al Quada, the UN, and all the other political enemies of the US in line.

Sorry for leaving you out, Mary Beth. There were too many write in candidates for me to list them all! Perhaps I should have just asked if you would rather have a cat for president?

leaving the cat off the ballot has obviously given Bush a larger lead than if the cat was on the ballot. I demand a recount of the recount.

In recent memory, Republican presidents have had dogs and Democratic presidents have had cats. I wonder at the breakdown over time (all presidents) - what does Kerry have - Bush has a dog. We need to know the answer to this burning question! Does being a cat person vs a dog person have some important leadership effect on our president? What does this mean? Does is provide insight into their personality? Do you think I could get a job at the National Inquirier? HMMMmmmmmmmm...
