____I and the MrsMoMan have not viewed this thing yet however from what info I have gathered from the Web it is very pro McCain and pro Israel.

____Has any one else gotten such a mailing and if so your review?

I got two of these last week. One in an envelope in the mail and the other looked like it was hand
delivered as there was no post. Looked like plain hate speech to me despite the glowing review
quotes on the front. Both went straight to the trash. Don't you love living in a battleground state?

I love the OCDBPAC spot on youtube!

I also love the way NPR doesn't even try to show both sides of an issue. There is no confusing them with "fair and balanced".

Perhaps you would care to present the other side of the issue and explain just how Clarion's DVD, the video from their associated organization and other actions are -not- an attempt to influence the election which would, as NPR points out, violate their tax-exempt status as a charity.

C'mon... show us what "fair and balanced" is all about.
