layout plan to swing voters away from Satan
Metro - 06/30/03
HOLLYWOOD -- Democrats assembled at
a posh beachside resort Saturday to kick off their quest
to defeat the “prince of darkness” himself,
President Bush. Democrats have high hopes of turning
the tide against a string of recent Republican victories.
Today a slate of speakers including
former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo and House Democratic
Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, urged the party to
stay on the attack.
“Under George Bush’s leadership
nearly all of our seniors have died,” said Palozi.
“…and because of the failure of President
Bush to fund more flavorful school lunches, forty percent
of the nation’s 12 year olds may starve before
their 16th birthday,” Palozi added.
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson was
also slated to speak to party members. However, after
listening to Rep. Palozi’s remarks, Richardson
was nowhere to be found.
"Can’t you see that the
Republicans are killing everybody?" Cuomo asked
the audience, playing off the famous Democratic catch
phrase, “What are you, stupid?”
Several of the other Democratic candidates
including Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry and Connecticut
Sen. Joe Lieberman had representatives who spoke at
the dinner and met with activists. Lieberman’s
spokesman used the opportunity to discuss the Republican
plan to euthanize most of America’s household
pets. The Kerry representative spoke about Bush’s
plan to poison the Nation’s water supply.
"These issues matter a great deal
to the American people and it's up to us totheir
eyes," said Cuomo.
During this weekend long event the
state party expected to raise about $15,000.
