Three short months after they tried to table their revisionist Reagan rip-off, they were back at us with their Super-Bowl-Half-Time-Anything-But-Special.
It is a testament to the dignity of George Bush the Elder that in 1992, he refused to make endless fun of the draft shenanigans of Bill Clinton, who skipped off to Oxford after he received his draft notice to blab endlessly about politics and play strip poker with the lasses.
Since this is Black History Month, I thought it might make sense to take a look at the latest controversy surrounding affirmative action - that is affirmative action for rich white people.
According to the president?s annual economic report, sending some service industry jobs overseas can be a good idea. In fact, Greg Mankiw, the chairman of Bush?s Council of Economic Advisors, called offshoring ?just a new way to do international trade.?
Former Sen. Max Cleland is the Democrats' designated hysteric about George Bush's National Guard service.

John Kerry is running as a Vietnam veteran. The Kerry campaign Web site states: "When John Kerry returned home from Vietnam, he joined his fellow veterans in vowing never to abandon future veterans of America's wars."
