: Now Clabert, Dearie...and Sweet Vincent... Poke fun at the system as a whole, yes. Laugh at the entire process, sartain. EVEN make us Florida voters out to be a few oranges shy of a grove, sure. But please, oh please, let us not get into the shortcomings of the individual candidates at this point. I fear that this Board is probably as equally divided on this particular issue as the rest of the country is. And if you guys are going to Gore-bash, then I might forget the bounds of good taste and tell you what I REALLY think of that squinchy-eyed, no-lipped, ferret-faced congenital IDJIT who's running against him. And then?? Well, there'd be name calling, and yelling, and sign waving, and a counting of Mohicanlander votes, followed by a recount, and then the Supreme Justices of our village would have to gather in Mervin's Meretricious Mercantile (as the only place large enough to handle the angry spectators) and hash out the whole mess, ad nauseum. And we wouldn't want any o' that, now would we? No, I think Mohicanland must RISE ABOVE the rest of the nation, so how about we either bash the whole SYSTEM or nothing at all, whaddya say? Will you consider this?
: Of course, this is just the opinion/suggestion of ONE Mohicanlander. Maybe others disagree entirely. I hope not. I DO have a little Dubya Ditty stored away, but please don't make me USE it.
: FV (No offense intended to anyone, anywhere...well, except maybe that guy in Texas.)
Well, fair Florida voter, a compatriot a little farther north MUST step in and echo your opinions. It's wonderful and good to bash the system as a whole, which obviously has crossed over into Rod Serling territory and WAY beyond, but please, fair gentleman (and ladies!) of Mohicanland, let's not be bashin' on one candidate or the other. For if not, as my Florida compatriot has threatened, Red here might have to expound on her true feelins' for the Ever-Smirkin Chinless Wonder from Texas, and she just wouldn't want to be doin' that. For it's the system with the problems, my friends, and that's what we should be aimin' the funnies at, sartain. I believe (and hope) that we're probably a fairly mixed bag of political Mohicanlanders...so let's all gather round the squeezins' jug and joke about recounts and all, but leave the candidate-bashin' OUTSIDE the door of Bumppo's...after all, we all got much better things to do on the lake today, don't we?
