Greatest Commercial Parodies Ever [dri] | Main | Cobra Commander's First Campaign Ad - He and Hillary Are In It All The Way To November (chad)
May 24, 2008

The 2008 Republican Congressional District Census (chad)

Removed link to my blog it just seemed like cheap pandering

Today in the mail I received a questionnaire from the Republican National Committee that implies it will be use to formulate the party platform and will also be shared with Republican congressional types to help them address issues.

It seems to me that this is the type of thing where the more answers the better off we are so I thought I would share it with you guys below the fold.

I think that a nice e-mail to your congress person indicating where you stand on each of these items wouldn't be out of line.
