That wasn't the point. The one you did find reflects nothing about the state of the 2000 primary season. It was an oddball piece with maybe 4 or 5 posters and 10 or so comments. It means nothing. I remember well the McCain threat and how it caused the rallying effect around GW. A few threads on FR is not indicative of the entire Republican politic.
Do you want me to find another one? "NWO" is usually a good search term to find these kinds of threads.
