I don't find any rule against that!!!!
I am officially forming the Hawaii Crossroads Super PAC with funding from our chief strategist. Here's a picture of him appearing as a pundit on a key political tv show:



in order to support the candidates that we like.

We accept bribes, I mean contributions, in the form of e-certs and systemwide upgrades.

I approve this message.

I too have hired a political heavyweight - James Carville - to head my campaign. Job #1, come up with a slogan to focus my campaign:

"You're in economy, stupid!"

Ham Rove and Carville might have to go to war, you know!

(BTW, Carol thought it was Spam. Maybe we should rename Ham Rove to Spam Rove?)

Isn't Carville doing some sort of beer commercial now?

uxb has withdrawn from the election. He is a New Yorker who has been significantly impacted by Sandy. He needs to focus his time on his family and relief efforts rather than participating in this discussion. We wish he and his family well.
