    10. Tell your step mother that it didn't.

    That her information is wrong on this one. :hi:
    On Sunday, the DNC held its first “Interfaith Gathering” in which four community members played official roles in this opening event of the convention. Imam Mohammad Mardini of Dearborn, Michigan gave one of the Abrahamic invocations, Fatema Biviji, who is also a National Democratic Delegate, read an English translation of selected verses from the Qur`an, Dr. Ingrid Mattson, President of ISNA, delivered a speech based upon the theme “Our Sacred Responsibility to Our World”, and Imam Abdur-Rahim Ali of Denver recited one of the closing litanies.

    I guess they didn't watch their own convention!!

    20. Is that the new e-mail rumor then?

    Easily debunked. Hilariously idiotic.
    This from a man with the nickname of a drug addict and pathological liar......

    Take a look at the graphic he used.

    In 1896 the Democrats used fraud, violence and intimidation to suppress voting by poor classes, and regained power.
    With support of the Klan and Democrat Governor Walter M. Pierce, endorsed by the Klan, the Compulsory Education Law was passed with a majority of votes. Its primary purpose was to shut down Catholic schools in Oregon, but it also affected other private and military schools. It was challenged in court and struck down by the United States Supreme Court Pierce v. Society of Sisters (1925) before it went into effect
    Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Democrat icon and orchestrator of Japanese Internment
    - Ex-House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt, former affiliate of a St. Louis area racist group
    - Ex-Senate President Pro Tempore Robert Byrd, former Ku Klux Klansman known for making bigoted slurs on national television
    - Rev. Jesse Jackson,Democrat keynote speaker and race hustler known for making anti-Semitic slurs
    - Rev. Al Sharpten, Democrat activist and perennial candidate and race hustler known inciting anti-Semitic violence in New York City
    - Sen. Ernest Hollings, leading Democrat Senator known for use of racial slurs against several minority groups
    - Lee P. Brown, former Clinton cabinet official and Democrat mayor of Houston who won reelection using racial intimidation against Hispanic voters
    - Andrew Cuomo, former Clinton cabinet official and Democrat candidate for NY Governor who made racist statements about a black opponent.
    - Dan Rather, Democrat CBS news anchor and editorialist known for using anti-black racial epithets on a national radio broadcast
    - Donna Brazile,former Gore campaign manager known for making anti-white racial attacks. Brazile has also worked for Jackson, Gephardt, and Michael Dukakis

    I wonder how many votes DU has cost the Democratic party? Given there's only around 5,000 active DUmmies it's probably not a material number but it's something to ponder.
