    Dear DNC:

    Thank you for giving the opportunity to speak my mind.
    I lost my job this past year. When Clinton was president, I worked in
    a prosperous enterprise. But in the last year, we had to close our
    operations. We simply could not compete with foreign labor. This foreign
    labor worked for low pay under very bad conditions. They worked very long
    shifts, and many even died on the job. This competition could hardly be
    called "fair." I was forced out of the place where I had worked for 34
    years. Not a single government program was there to help me. How can
    Bush call himself "compassionate?"
    Far worse, I lost two of my sons in Bush's evil war in Iraq. They gave
    their lives for their country, and for what? So that Bush's oil buddies
    can get rich. My pain of losing my sons is indescribable. While it is
    trivial next to the loss of my sons, I regret to say that I also lost my
    home. I simply had nothing left. How can Bush call himself a Christian
    when he neglects people like me? I am a senior citizen with various
    medical problems. I'm not in a position where I can begin a new career. I
    was reduced to the point where I was basically homeless, all because of
    President Bush. Mr. Bush, I dare you to look me in the face and tell me
    you are a compassionate man! I dare you to look me in the face and tell
    me you are a Christian!
    If I had any money left, I would donate it to the Democratic party. If
    Al Gore had been elected in 2000, I guarantee I would still have a job,
    a home, and most importantly, my dear sons!

    Even a die-hard liberal can recognize wit when he sees it. That's pretty funny. Now check this out:

    The Dillema...........................

    With all your honor and dignity, what would you do?

    This test only has one question, but it's a very important one

    Please don't answer it without giving it some serious thought.

    By giving an honest answer you will be able to test where you stand morally.

    The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation, where you
    will have to make a decision one way or the other. Remember that your answer
    needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

    Please scroll down slowly and consider each line--this is important for the
    test to work accurately.

    You're in Florida...in Miami, to be exact. There is great chaos going on all
    around you, caused by a hurricane and severe floods.

    There are huge masses of water all over you. You are a CNN photographer and
    you are in the middle of this great disaster.

    The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot very impressive
    photos. There are houses and people floating around you, disappearing into
    the water. Nature is showing all its destroying power and is ripping
    everything away with it.

    Suddenly you see a man in the water fighting for his life, trying not to be
    taken away by the masses of water and mud.

    You move closer. Somehow the man looks familiar. Then you realize who it
    is--George W. Bush!

    At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him

    So you have two options.

    You can save the life of George W. Bush, or you can shoot a Pulitzer
    prize-winning photo of the death of one of the world's most powerful men.

    And here's the question: (Please give an honest answer)

    Would you select color film, or go with the simplicity of classic black and
    white ?

    The above story is a re-work of a similar scenario involving Clinton that was popular among Conservatives, while Clinton occupied the White House. It'll be a lot funnier, when someone adapts the story for Kerry, if he gets nominated by the Democrats.

    But in your scenario, how would you save G. W. Bush from drowning?

    Take your foot off his head.
