It's so pathetic that these blatant attacks on democracy, national security and the economy are lost of the wal-mart, bubba voters. No, to them the important thing is Obama's skin color, religion, whether or not he wears a flag pin, and comments about lipstick on a pig. How extremely ignorant.

We should pass a law that prohibits these NEOCON morons from voting.
