    Ah, imagine that ... a coordinated message! Unity! A way to answer the Republicans' abysmal agenda! (I only hope their nomination votes are as strong-willed as they need to be)

    Start growing some cojones and fight! The election didn't mean the end of the Democratic party, but the beginning. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

        Bluto : Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

        Otter : Germans?

        Boon : Forget it, he's rolling.

        Bluto : And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...
        [thinks hard]

        Bluto : the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!
        [runs out, alone; then returns]

        Bluto : What the fuck happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer...

        Otter : Dead! Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

        Bluto : We're just the guys to do it.

        D-Day : Let's do it.

        Bluto : LET'S DO IT!

        And remember... Bluto went on to become a U.S.Senator!

          I just didn't catch it because, believe it or not,  I never saw the movie - too old and sophisticated at the time, I guess ;) But I love it - particularly Boon : Forget it, he's rolling!

            Actually,

            I took it for a Texas Aggie joke, which they often tell on themselves. If you're from down there, you've heard or seen a million of 'em - like the Texas Aggie coffee mugs, with the handle on the inside;)
