    Received this bit of instant Americana in the mail yesterday. I will not reveal which party sent it, or the putative `fox' revealed on the flip side of the glossy. What I will say is that I'm tired of being hunted down by all intellectually scrofulous volpines and their attempts to do me good by doing me in (foxes warning me about foxes...).

    Hen doesn't look much impressed, does she?

    I'll go you one, tonight my local REMC called to ask for donations to a certain party............political that is, not a parteeeeeeeeeee

    No wonder my electric bill goes up when they use their time to campaign for politicians.

    Sounds like the REMC folks ought to get out a repair truck and fix that short between their earphones...

    I seem to be getting phone calls from the opposite party that I am registered with ALOT lately. Hey, I live in California - for better or for worse I think the state is pretty much voting democrat. Why pester me???

    No offense, but that ad is kind of insulting in its' use of children's storytale characters. Aren't politics about getting informed about issues? Not about animal analogies.

    Actually, it was this thread that inspired me to post the recyclable scree above :
