I am doing this as my own little protest against the mudslinging going on. It's done all in fun.. but all the same I HAVE to do it. I am not intending on starting an all out war, so please be nice. It's all in fun.. really. If you are going to be mean or attack me or others, please don't respond. I do want to hear from all parties that you all represent. I want to see how many of you can think of some "mud" that has been slung (whether it was proven true or not) or some of the ludicrous statements of our PAST (NOT PRESENT) congress/candidates/presidents/vice-presidents. My favorite ludicrous statements are "Read my Lips, no new Taxes" "It isn't pollution that's harming our environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it." "Those who survived the San Francisco earthquake said, 'Thank God, I'm still alive.' But, of course, those who died, their lives will never be the same again." "I did not inhale" "I did NOT have s e xual relations with that women", and "It all depends on what your definition of 'is' is" Those all make me laugh to this day. (bonus points if you can name the less obvious ones ) What people tend to forget is that every person running office will do or say anything to get themselves elected They make mistakes, they abuse their power AND they hope they can get away with it. So please, be nice, have fun and share with me things from PAST elections/candidates, members of office...etc Please NOTHING about THIS election, I am sick of hearing it, as are others.

Oh dangit you took mine! I love that, read my lips. It always makes me laugh. There's one from the 2000 but I can't say it because he's running this time too. I'll come back in 6 weeks and tell you

The rumor floated in 2000 about McCain being gay when it's been well documented that he has "played the field" often with WOMEN.

That's a shame you excluded this one, cos there's some real funny whoppers, but I understand why you did it. "I am not a crook" is one that came to mind! And of course, there's the "I invented the internet" which wasn't what he said at all but was taken out of context--still, it's funny!

Nixon and his famous "I am not a crook" statement. Although there really wasn't anything wrong with what he did; he just got caught; that's what he did wrong!
