Does the "Rev" Al Sharpton REALLY think he has a snowballs chance in hell of winning the Predidential election in 2004. Can you say welfare state? How bout welfare entire society? Entire country? I've said it before, I'll say it again. President Bush will win the 2004 Presidential election by the largest margin of votes both popular and electoral in Presidential election history. Sharpton, Gephardt, Kucinich and Moseley....[LOL]

He did this after being trapped under the boulder for five days. He ran out of water on Tuesday and commenced home surgery on Thursday. Wow.
