Lighter side of... politics? Jul 16, 2003

I am sure here at ProZ we respect all views, including politics, and of course including those concerning Mr. Bush. Though, I have to say I loved that "prose that spouts" expression - so accurate!

Have fun,

Ruben

Or very good, or really quite good, or damn good...

Thanks for posting this.
