    and it went unreported in the media at the time.

    Most folks don't realize that GeeDubya had been Poppy Bush's campaign "religious liaison" in the field and had made contacts of many if not most of the churches on whose parking lots they placed the flyers.

    Wouldn't want to place 'em all on black voters windshields lest they get all "uppity" about it, wouldja?

    The bottom line is that it worked, and the "official" G.O.P. never issued a statement about it that I've found.

    Thanks for the comment.
