Really? I wasn't aware that Nader or McKinney had been elected. Must
have been a massive case of electoral fraud.

For newcomers to Marxmail, let me try to decipher this bit of CPUSA
cant. A "reactionary" is somebody who belongs to the Republican
Party. A very bad reactionary is a "fascist". Meanwhile, a
"progressive" means somebody who belongs to the Democratic Party,
like Barack Obama or Rahm Emanuel.
>CB: So Obama didn't endorse the Israeli attack on Hamas.
I should add that Charles is an attorney by trade and is as skilled
as Bill Clinton in the fine art of parsing:
"It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is. If the--if
he--if 'is' means is and never has been, that is not--that is one
thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true
statement....Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having
any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a
question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would
have been completely true."
