Various and sundry
It appears that "twoofer taggers" have come to Memphis! The above was seen on a BP gas station in the local area. Not very good artwork, though. They could probably use some help from these guys, who might share their politics to some degree.
Email is telling me...
The difference between Repubs and Dems:
Fred Thompson and Hillary were walking down the street when they came to a homeless person.
The Republican, Fred Thompson, gave the homeless person his business card and told him to come to his office for a job. He then took $20 out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person.
Hillary was very impressed, so when they came to another homeless person, she decided to help. She walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions to the welfare office. She then reached into Thompson's pocket and got out $20. She kept $15 for her administrative fees and gave the homeless person $5...
Now, do you understand the difference?
I do. But the Robin Hood concept is very powerful.
Last but not least, if Hillary and Freddie get their respective party nominations it will effectively be a rematch from their Watergate days when both counselors were involved in the hearings. Some may try to paint Thompson with a Nixon brush but click the pic for a reminder of Freddie's most famous moment in the fray.
