Let's get rid of what gave them to us

The last straw! Front page headline [in The Washington Post of March 10]: "U.S. SETS PLANS TO AID IRAQ IN CIVIL WAR." So, we are staying around for the Civil War. And people wonder why I am so emotional about eliminating the electoral college, which gave us President Bush in 2000?

And citizens wonder why my career has been dedicated to public financing of political campaigns, the lack of which gave us Bush and [lobbyist Jack] Abramoff in 2004?

The Republicans and the Lobbyists! Bring 'em on in 2006-08.
