A friend sent this to me in an E-mail. I thought I would post it.

I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this

*If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your
grandparents, you're
'exotic, different.'

* Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, a
quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack you're a radical,
unpatriotic Muslim.

* Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a

* Graduate from Harvard law School and you are

* Attend 5 different small colleges before
graduating, you're well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community
organizer, become the first black President of the
Harvard Law Review,create a voter registration drive
that registers 150,000 new voters,spend 12 years as
a Constitutional Law professor,
spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district
with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state
Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years
in the United States Senate representing a state of
13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign
Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs
committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.

* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4
years on the city
council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with fewer
than 7,000
people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only
650,000 people,
then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19
years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant
churches, you're not a real Christian.

* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich
heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next
month, you're a Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex
education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the
fiber of society.

* If , while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no
other option in sex education in your state's
school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're
very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate laywer who gave
up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of
her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your
family's values don't represent America's.

* If you're husband is nicknamed 'First Dude', with at least one DWI
conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until
age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated
the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely

OK, much clearer now

I got this sent to me too...forwarded it on to many in my address book, but am preaching to the choir. Hope things are returning to normal a little more each day for you.

This confusion could cost this country another term of nightmarish governance!

I like the sound track you have playing! What language is that?
