    It's in my archives.

    Then we can play nice again.

    Btw, I was goofing above and my hat is off to you for being in alt groups when most people had never heard of the Internets yet.

    Wesley Clark for President and Ron Paul for Vice-President (though Hagel would be nice, too)

        Do you know the pig fucker reference?

        It's an old Texas political tale. I know it's a tale because LBJ never ran for sheriff, but this is it:

        LBJ was running for sheriff of Johnson City and was behind in the polls so he started a rumor that his opponent was zoo and loved to fuck pigs. His aides told him no one would ever believe, but people love a good juicy rumor and it spread like wild fire. When someone asked LBJ why he did it, he said, "I just wanted to see the asshole get in front of God and everybody and say, 'I don't fuck pigs.' Because once you deny something, at least 25% of people will always believe you did."

        Same with this newsletter.

        My other favorite LBJ joke goes like this:

        A kid was in Hutto crying his eyes out and an old lady stopped and asked him, "Timmy, why are you crying?"

        Timmy, "My dad came to town last week and didnt come to see me or my mom."

        Old Lady, "But Timmy, your dad has been dead for years."

        Timmy, "But ma'am, just last week he came to town and voted for LBJ!"

        Rimshot.

      If you've got something, you need to show it.  Because what you are saying is inconsistent with what Paul himself later said about the racist newsletter.

      They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.
