What do you all think of Fred Thompson? He's already beating McCain in the polls and he hasn't announced a candidacy yet.

Congrats on Emory.  You were never a longshot in my book.  Unless you wanted to be a law sniper. ;)

I like that he at least has some attitude.  McCain, Rudy, Romney...they all seem so stale. 

Paul of course would be best.   :)

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

I think that says more about McCain than it does about Fred Thompson.  :D
It is easy to change the language of oppression without changing the sociopolitical situation of its victims.

Thompson is leading McCain precisely because he hasn't declared yet.  He hasn't had to speak on any issues.  He just rides the wave of popularity w/o having to address anything.  Once he officially enters, his numbers will balance out.

suuuuuuuuuck considering most black people are conservative already on many issues.
The Tragicomic: Itís embodied in the blues, jazz, (HIP HOP, CORNELL <<one slight deserves another!!!!<< REALLY MISSED THE BOAT ON THAT ONE!!!) and the African experience in the New World -- the ability to withstand terrorism, embrace oneís worst enemies lovingly and bear the unbearable in song.

I think he is saying that the black community, while being largely democratic, might be more of the Leiberman type of Democrat...
