    Yeah...tell me again how all those signs at Tea Party Parties were the work of "individuals" and not sanctioned by Republicans in general.

    What's the problem with those signs, other than the fact that you don't like them? All they do is point criticism toward some of the people in power. What's classless about calling Obama a socialist for example? There's nothing terrible about it. Whether such an accusation, or opinion is accurate or not, is entirely different.

    You did not mention the accompanying memo, that indicates that candidates should play on the "fear" of Obama..

    The RNC should grow up. If the republican leadership thinks this behavior will win them support then they're crazy. And what's up with Scooby doo??

    Scooby Doo?

    I know Scooby, work with him often...I guess I'll ask him, but it seems really strange to me.

    I don't see how they're any more offensive than cartoons of the past. Remember the Nixon mask? How about Chevy Chase doing Ford?

    This may be juvenile and silly (which I like sometimes) but it comes nowhere near to being offensive. Bush had a lot worse said about him (by me!). If the Dems want to be taken seriously, then maybe they should thicken up and grow a spine.

    Far worse was done to Bush, the Movie showing Bush being asassinated while the man was still in office can never be topped.

    Political Cartoons have been with us forever but now we have a real live Messiah Christ Like Man in the White House and suddenly the whole world should bow their heads and slobber at the mere mention of The Holy Ones Name.

    Obama is fair game just as all other Presidents were thats American Politics.

    A couple of things. First, why is this even news? Coke and Pepsi have been doing this for decades. I'm not sure what the big deal is here. This has been going on for decades, and it's not going to stop anytime soon.

    Also, I found this a little wierd. Who forgets a 72 page top secret document in their hotel room? Obviously it can happen, but if the cleaning people came in, don't you think they'd have called the owners first? It wouldn't be good business to find something a customer left behind, let their competitor, or opposition have it, and then publicize the the matter of how it was obtained. Sounds a little odd to me. Unless of course, the democrat was observing the pubs, and waiting for them to leave, so he could go through their trash. I totally bet that stuff happens all the time on both sides. These people, Coke & Pepsi, care more about power, than they do the people.

    Death of a President is a 2006 British mockumentary about the assassination of George W. Bush, the 43rd U.S. President, on 19 October 2007 in Chicago, Illinois. By means of actors, archival film footage and computer-generated special effects, the assassination is the thematic beginning of serious discussions about civil disobedience, racial profiling, the U.S. Government's reduction of civil liberties, news sensationalism as agitational propaganda and the theory of Just War.

    The premiere showing was at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival on 10 September 2006, and in the UK, it was broadcast on More4 on 9 October, then on Channel 4 on 19 October 2006, a year to the day before the assassination date in the film. It was broadcast in Finland on 18 October 2007, the assassination date's eve. In Japan, despite governmental interference, the film was exhibited in cinemas on 6 October 2007.

    Yes....(spoiler Alert)

    BUT the most offensive part of the movie was after the assasination of Bush, Cheney is also assasinated...
