George W. Bush. He just scares me.

Meghan of Human Wonderful.

Ross Perot. Anyone who is THAT funny and doesn't intent to be frightens me. He's great to impersonate, though. I've been waiting for him to pop out and run again. Oh well. Maybe in 2004. -Kev of kevsummitt@aol.com), October 26, 2000.

George W. Bush. Anyone who has earned the nickname "Texecutioner" doesn't know compassionate conservatism if it hit him on the head. Of course I work in a inner city school district, so the man never had a chance with me.

Newt Gingrich. Pointy-headed little know-nothing, talking all the time. Mean-spirited and proud of it. Shudder.

Tom DeLay. Not as weirdly self-absorbed and un-self-aware as Gingrich, not pretending to be a genius, but still mean-spirited and proud of it.

Bill Clinton. Not for political reasons - I'm sorry, I will never be able to look at him without a little shudder after the whole Monica thing. It was essentially sex with an unpaid, very young, member of his household. Maybe not criminal, but still a special kind of immorality.

The genre of politics itself gives me the creeps and those who open faced admit to being politicians make the whole thing creepier yet. Folly, farce and fibs . . . . . .

George Bush. I have great fears for this country if he is elected. I see us backsliding at least 20 years.
