       July 26, 2004

    Why is John Kerry wrong for your state? GeorgeWBush.com has a neat little flash thingy that will tell you.

    The interactive application is a neat idea, but I have one suggestion for the flash gurus over there:

    When you click on "Wisconsin," it probably shouldn't say "The Illinois Facts."

    Those of you not lucky enough to be from the Dairy State may not know this, but Wisconsinites are not too keen on their flatlander breatheren to the south. In fact, they've even developed a series of cute little nicknames for them, ranging from the common FIB to slightly-less-common FISHTAB.

    Anyway, my point is : As the campaign staff is well aware, Bush lost Wisconsin by about 5,000 votes last time. Insulting the good people of Wisconsin by confusing them with the Illini is not the way to make up that deficit.

    You think I'm kidding, and I am, for the most part. But there is also a serious streak to what I say. Both campaigns are spending a lot of money to try to look "in touch" with the people. They're duking it out for the so called "swing voter." These "swing voter" people change their minds faster than John Kerry flips to a flop, usually based on a lot less than a simple mix up like this.

    5,000 votes.

    Maybe they figured they'd just kill two birds with one stone since all the FIBS are here all summer anyway?
