    one of the sole highlights of that election :



    my only other positive memory is that i tossed an oreo at the tv during the presidential debate from across the room and managed to hit Al Gore. the viewing party at my house got a good laugh out of that.

    Check out factcheck.org. That should teach you a little on the subject.

    I would think a thread on factcheck's bias would be in the bias forum?.....Oh wait.

    Factcheck.org is a bipartisan site based at the University of Pennsylvania. Hardly the left-wing site that you would pretend that it is. sorry...but big fail.

    do a little research. Educate yourself. Then you won't come across as not having a clue about what you are talking about.

    People on the country's Supreme Court should not be afraid of controversy. It seems Justice O'Connor was wise to resign before her weakness clouded her judgement.
    Wrong. The Florida courts could only decide the vote in Fla.

    Silly game - I'm not playing - some of us actually need a point of interest to enter into debate - we're not interested in challenging the absurdity of those wishing attention.
