But there is no way in hell I am doing this again.
Maybe the next incredibly dense (in the scientific way), phenomenally referenced polemic; for now, you'll have to make do with what I did.
Though, to be fair (to myself), I'm not a big advocate of trying to convince anyone with my stuff. There are many better qualified than I to craft convincing, succinct advertisements to sway the undecided. I'm more interested in accumulating the facts for the base.
Since I became heavily involved in the political sphere, I have had excellent experiences as a volunteer and as a conversationalist: having the facts at my disposal has made me the Answer Lady at the Kerry table and at social gatherings. There is no one who can win a pro-Bush or anti-Kerry argument with me. I have too many sources, and I demand too many.
