The Boys of Illinois

The Boys of Illinois

I'm sure I'm not the first to consider two men in comparison. The civil rights issue brought to a head by the first Illinoisan President, Abraham Lincoln, who had lost his senatorial election bid and yet because of that, went on to become president. Lincoln had less legislative experience than Barack Obama ... yet went on to be one of the most memorable presidents in US history.

On a side note, showing how some issues never change ... during the Lincoln Douglas debates, Lincoln defends his votes when in the House of Representatives for voting against the war with Mexico (as illegal) and yet supporting the troups by voting for the allotment of moneys to provide them with adequate supplies and equipment.

On a completely different side note ... it's curious that the "conservative" administration is responding to the current financial crisis with its sudden support of a very socialist mindset when trying to head off disaster with its bailout of major financial institutions. This pumpkin headed punster will refrain, at the moment, from deciding whether this is a good move or a bad move, but we sure do find it curious. We guess that socialism is really not so bad if it means helping your wealthy buddies stay wealthy.

Polly The P.O.ed Pumpkin Wakes Up to another Prez Election Year

Oh Yeah! It's Political Pumpkin time again. Since TagYerit's pumpkin pages receive hundreds of thousands of visits during these months ... the world's YOUR stage ... We're putting a call out to all you interested parties, be you pundits, pumpkin carvers, pumpkin painters, or just someone with a promising idea. Send us your pumpkin pics and ideas.

Pumpkins (and TagYerit) are avid environmentalists and are still pissed off and reeling from 8 dismal years of Bush's Reblican REGIME. Now, since McCain has aligned himself with Bush's failed policies 95% of the time, you can just guess where the pumpkin patch votes will go ...

So we're looking for:
pumpkins with strong pro-Obama visuals and statements
pumpkins portraying McCain's record (like his support on issues such as torture; oil drilling; Iraq, etc.)

Even if you're not a pumpkin carver - send us your best ideas and we'll attempt to carve as many as we can

Help us and the pumpkins make this the year of "No more Business As Usual with Greedy good ol' boys in the White House/"
