Wisconsin and the 2004 election
There are three interesting things to point out about this article.
1. Congrats to President Bush on picking up an Honorary Doctorate of Laws. Well, there is really nothing to congratulate in that, I suppose. So, let me change that to "Congrats to Concordia University for having the good sense to award President Bush an honorary degree."
2. The President lost Wisconsin last time around by fewer than 6,000 votes. That means that if just one more person per ward in Wisconsin would have voted for President Bush, he'd have taken 11 more electoral votes. That's right, just one, single, solitary person per ward. Who out there doesn't know at least one person that isn't planning on voting because they think that their vote doesn't make a difference? If that person lives in Wisconsin, or any other of the other 17 "battleground states," they are sorely mistaken.
3. How do you like Mary Devitt of Glendale, WI? In the article, she is quoted as saying that she is out protesting because "she doesn't want her tax dollars to be used for a war she doesn't believe in." Well, Mary, I'm quite certain that I don't want my tax dollars being used to fund hundreds of the socialist programs that I'm sure you support. But do you see me out there marching around with a sign? No. If I made a sign and marched around bitching about every government program that I didn't support, I've have no time to eat, sleep, or work. Speaking of, what are you doing out marching around on a Friday afternoon, anyway? Don't you have a job?

Don't forget that you can also make a difference by supressing the vote of Dummocrats. Only get out the vote of those who will actually vote for Bush! My evil plans include a birthday party for myself starting immediately after work for all my liberal friends who may possibly vote. Once it hits 8 pm I'll break the bad news to them. ;-)
