I have three remarks to add to this (aside from the fact that I don't think "the base" would look at anything objectively even with the aid of a lobotomy):
1) Dear Jerry Fleming of Athens, AL,
Do you know that George W. Bush, religious man that he purports to be, has not joined a congregation in the area of Washington, D.C. where he spends the majority of his time taking up space in the Oval Office? Don't you think that belies his "moral values" rhetoric just a bit?
2) Dear Trisha McAllister of Grenada, MI,
There are actually some politicians out there who go with their instinct over what the polls tell them. Some are great, others are average and a few are genuinely awful. However, these people live in "the reality-based community" that Bushco despises. When are you going to get it through your apparently thick head that Dubya is a corporate shill unwilling to face facts while awaiting "the rapture" and his anticipated ascent to Heaven? He has the blood of almost 1900 of our people on his hands along with thousands of innocent Iraqis. Does that register on your radar at all?
2) Dear Charles Jones of The Brookings Institute,
For you to even imagine comparing Dubya to Harry Truman is a bilious insult.
