    OK- tell me this isn’t just a little scary.

    .—”I want you to stand, raise your right hands,” and recite “the Bush Pledge,” said Florida state Sen. Ken Pruitt. The assembled mass of about 2,000 in this Treasure Coast town about an hour north of West Palm Beach dutifully rose, arms aloft, and repeated after Pruitt: “I care about freedom and liberty. I care about my family. I care about my country. Because I care, I promise to work hard to re-elect, re-elect George W. Bush as president of the United States.”

    UPDATE 5:42 p.m.: Billmon beat me to the One People by a few minutes with a much, much better post.

    Oh come on. I went to the link. This is somehow like the silly little oath the bushies were chanting:

    “I swear to thee, Adolph Hitler as Fuhrer and chancellor of the German Reich, my Loyalty and Bravery. I vow to thee and the superiors whom those shall appoint, obedience until death, so help me God.”

    Lets see, I care about freedom and liberty. I care about my family. I care about my country. I also find it amazing that a loser like Hitler could take over a country like he did. And force anyone that wants to play to pledge their loyalty to him.

    That said the silly oath the Bushies were chanting hardly compares to the other oath. Isn’t there some law that states that the first person who refers to Hitler looses the argument?
