vanity | 1/03/2008 | hatfieldmccoy

Posted on 01/03/2008 8:44:02 PM PST by hatfieldmccoy

Free Republic further underscores it's relevancy as a powerhouse political center of gravity with server crashing traffic tonight. The press, pundits, lurkers and Freeps buried the robust Free Republic data center with page requests resulting in server error results and long page request waits. ..YEAH BABY

The lurkers are encouraged to hit the kitty as hard as they’re hitting the servers.

Just saw something on CNN that is vaguely amusing. They're listing the number of votes per candidate, as well as the percentages.

Chris Dodd received 1 vote. I kid you not.

Plugs Biden received 23.

You talking about the hits, or what? Seems everything at this end is the usual. I don’t notice any slowwwwwwwwwwwws at all. Like I said, been here the past three hours and haven’t really noticed anything strange other than Huckabee’s win in Iowa.

Really, that is so cruel of the Iowan’s to lead that poor guy into believing he has a chance, and prolonging his misery...and ours. Perhaps Fred will give him a position with his Administration to make it all better.

Kinda like milk and cookies. Chocolate Chip are my favorites. Wonder what Huck would want.

Not another thread turning into cat pictures.

I know many here love cats and post pictures of them.

However, dogs are better. They are man's best friend, you know.
