    Funny, that's the first time I have seen that joke, of the dozens of times it has been sent to me, with Bush in place of Kerry as the subject of the old guy's inquiry.

    Kerry as President...it ain't gonna happen!!!

    Sure, I just want to make sure that I won't be taking away any $$$$ from your family. But, if you can afford to lose the money, I will be happy to take it from you. I'm just not sure that we will know who the winner is for a long time after the election. I hope it doesn't come to that, just thinking of 2000 all over again.

    Oh it WILL be 2000 all over again, with BOTH sides fighting for the presidency with lawyers

    You seen the lawyers both sides got lined up? Its a veritable who's who of the american bar.

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    Nah, I dont have a family, just lots of horses, donkeys, goats and motorcycles. Oh, and a wife.... Its on then!! $100 on Kerry with lrrs167

    Yes, both sides are lawyering up heavily. My bosses (lawyers) are both going to NH on election day to work for Kerry, they are taking lots of volunteer lawyers......

    At least in Haiti they are civilized about it....you know, with machine guns and stuff.....

    You got it , mang. I just hope it all gets sorted out before the inaguration in January. I remember how embarassed I was in 2000 because of how foolish both sides looked with their lawsuits and recount after recount after recount. I remember thinking that we must look like a bunch of idiots to the rest of the world. Now, coming from me, that is powerful stuff because I generally don't give a fuck what the rest of the world thinks of us, but at the time, we looked pretty stupid fighting amongst ourselves. And, my fear is that we will see more of the same in the coming weeks. I am fearful because I think that terrorists may try and take advantage of the situation because national attention will not be focused on protecting against them but rather the foolish bickering back and forth. It's gonna get ugly...

    Of course, the only way to avoid any sort of litigation would be if one side wins by a very definitive margin. I think it would have to be 5 percentage points or more.

    Drink up, it's gonna be a while...

    I dont know, I dont think its going to be that close. In any case, I think the situation in 200 was pretty unique, and I dont think it'll happen again. (At least I hope not....)
