Just to let it out... I'm really sick and tired of newspapers every day printing some garbage like "Bush Slams Kerry on Defense" or "Kerry Slams Bush's record."

I don't know why but it is making me very angry. [hulk comes out].

If it's such a slam, then the case is closed? No more discussion is needed?...

All BS in my book. They fight these little battles never getting to the bigger issues. In this way we do not have to examine their records/accomplishments. Instead we argue over military records that are over 30 years old. Nonsense!

I think it would be much more interesting if the newspapers modernized their headlines, such as:

"Bush Tells Dems 'You Suckas Got Served'"

"Kerry Insists Vietnam Record Cool Like Other Side Of Pillow"

"The RNC in Review: Take 'Dat, and Rewind It Back."
-Zell Miller Got the Flow to Make Yo' Booty Go *Clap*-

"Ain't Nuthin' But An RNC Thang"

"New Polls Show Bush Dropping Like It's Hot"

and etc.

Hell yes.

That kind of reminds me of "The Onion" headlines.

Pookdogg, but won't the Politically correct crowd cry and whine if they read those headlines?

Actually, I think the social reactionaries would have more trouble with it.

The word "slams" should be banned.

Slams should be banned along with touts. I can't remember the university that puts out the list of words and phrases tbat should be deleted from the English language every year, but if you know, maybe you should contact them and suggest slams to them. It's always quite an interesting list. I agree, one politician is slamming another, hurricanes are slamming the coast. And the list goes on.......

My favorite recent onion headline has been: Homosexual Tearfully Admits to being Governor of New Jersey.
