I have been a Republican and voted Republican most of my life. But in my opinion, this administration has high-jacked the Republican Party I knew and is taking Wisconsin and the United States in dangerous directions. If Bush is re-elected, you and your children and grandchildren and mine will pay dearly in their freedoms and opportunities long after his term of office expires. I believe that four more years of President Bush and the people who surround him is not in our Nation's best interest.Emphasis his.
You could very well be the deciding factor in the electoral outcome of this election. Think carefully, vote your heart and head. I think of the debt that we will leave ourselves and everyone who follows, and I question the judgment that caused the deaths of 1100 U.S. friends and neighbors in a war that we didn't need to start.
UPDATE: Apparently, Rudy Guilani had recently come to the Dodgeville, WI headquarters of Land's End to campaign for Bush, so I would imagine Comer's ad is in response to that action.

Kerry's evolved into a very fine candidate: he delivered a strong stump speech, forceful, projecting a lot of confidence. I was a little worried that the crowd's enthusiasm would wane after Bruce Springsteen's stirring introduction (he played "No Surrender" solo on an acoustic guitar), but Kerry didn't disappoint.
5 days to go. I'll be here through d-day, posting updates here when I can and photos to my Flickr blog.
