George Bush, as the Republicans keep saying over and over and over, got more votes than any presidential candidate in U.S. history.

This is certainly true, but who has received the second most votes?

John Kerry.

It's called voter turnout, people, and guess what? More voters means more votes.

George Bush not only got more votes for him than anyone in history, he also got more votes against him than anyone in history besides Kerry.

Bragging about popular votes is like bragging about how the 2004 Superbowl had (guessing here) 10 times more viewers than the 1967 airing.

It means nothing except that you're a dumbass.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
