FREEPERS LOVE YOU MORE THAN WE CAN SAY!
HEY! HEY! HEY!

We only made it to thread 2?!?!

It was my fundraising vanity, wasn't it?

Which, somehow, I missed (probably because I was over here). codercpc and a bunch of others didn't though.

I can't help but look at this from an election perspective. This tells me the right is energized, and the economy has people feeling they can give some cash up.

That bodes very well.

Yep. I'll point out the ECB has President Bush up 259-169 WITHOUT the leans, and 295-207 with them.

Did I black out for a week, or did you just finish the FReepathon in less than 24 hours?

Under 27 hours, at least (and less than 24 hours since I staggered in).

John Kerry is out jogging one morning and notices Little Hannah on the
corner with a box. Curious, he runs over to Little Hannah and says,
"What's in the box, kid?"

Little Hannah says, "Kittens, they're brand new kittens."

John Kerry laughs and says, "What kind of kittens are they?"

"Democats," says Little Hannah.

"Oh that's cute," he says and goes on his way.

A few days later, Mr. Kerry is running with his buddy John Edwards and he
spies Little Hannah with her box just ahead. Kerry says to Edwards, "You
gotta check this out," and they both jog over to Little Hannah.

John Kerry says,! "Look in the box, John, isn't that cute? Look at those
little kittens. Hey, kid, tell my friend John what kind of kittens they
are."

Little Hannah replies, "They're "Republicats".

"Whoa!" John Kerry says, "I came by here the other day and you said they
were "Democats". What's up?"

"Well," Little Hannah explains, "their eyes are open now."

Someone said up the thread, that it might be sensible to keep the thread going for a time.

Maybe construct a Thread 3 (can you believe that!) something like "Election 2004 Fortification" to build off the evident willingness of old lurkers and newbies to get into the support of this place.

Amazing momentum - don't waste it.
