you forgot a couple...








not that it matters, but it is interesting that celebrities (movie stars, musicians, etc.) tend to lean to the left, but athletes tend to lean to the right... yet ironicly, the two most famous former movie stars turned politicians are both republicans, and the most famous former athlete turned politician is a democrat go figure

The first guy is A Fraud

And I don't see where that msg board really has anything concrete about Curt's political views, but I admit I only had time to quickly skim it.

I did like that letter he wrote

OK, if he is Republican that's one Republican I definitely think is sexy

Not really..at the concerts I went to on his last tour, he was often booed by quite a few people for any anti-Bush statements. Also on Bruce msg boards, there are many Bush supporting fans who criticize him .

And at the one VFC concert I attended, most people there were already Kerry supporters anyway, so it didn't matter .

Diamond, don't let this stop you from posting pics of hottie athletes though, I wouldn't want that.

I haven't seen any proof as to any outspoken support for any canidate, just random meaningless pictures.

If I could I'd give this thread a quarter of a star.

That's understandable BVS, based on your mindset and your location as so aptly put on the left side of your posting profile page i.e.- "Location: in a state of denial"


Here is a letter that was sent to me:

Thanks,
Peace

Open letter signed by 24 Olympians and Professional Athletes]

To our fellow Americans:

We have given much thought to the values and characteristics that make a great athlete. Our lives have been spent trying to run farther, push further, and jump higher than the person beside us, or across the field of our chosen sport. With years of training and exhaustive competition beneath our belts, we have identified the values necessary to compete and win--values like personal strength, determination, a sense of fair play and faith.

The same qualities that make a great athlete make a great President--the determination to do what is right, regardless of the latest polls, the personal strength to bear the weight of the nation on your shoulders, and the faith that a higher power will direct the actions of good people.

We see in President Bush these same qualities.

In 2001, our nation was attacked without cause or provocation. The President's values saw us through those dark days after the terrorist attack. The economy was rocked by the dual blows of the terrorists' cowardly action and the reckless disregard of the rules by a few rogue executives. But President Bush's decisive, principled leadership has moved America forward, and today our nation is safer and our economy is strong and getting stronger.

The fight against terrorism takes decisiveness. It takes continued support for our troops and first responders. But most importantly, it takes courage and inspirational leadership in the White House. In these critical times, our President has had the courage to stand up and do what's right.

For that and for his unwavering character, we choose George W. Bush as our President for the next four years. He is a leader we can depend on to make the tough decisions and the right decisions. Please join us in supporting a candidate of courage, President Bush--a leader who backs our troops defending our nation and shares our values.

Sincerely,
Ernie Banks-MLB Hall of Fame

You see the letter makes more since. But I guess if you posted that first you wouldn't have had all the fun posting pics. I'll bump it up to one star.

But just like Chuck D, it don't mean shit to me.

I hope Kerry Strug told them to spell her name right before she signed that letter
