Both Bush and Kerry went to Yale University, are considered "old money," and are members of the "secret society" of the Skull and Bones.

Any thoughts on this?

I think it's even more interesting that we've had 5 yalies (Taft, Ford, Bush 41, Clinton and Bush 43) and three of them were Skulls - in fact Ford and Clinton only went to law school there, so they never had a chance at the society.

Pretty weird. Bunch of conspiricy theories out there. But the Libs can't play 'em too much because then Dubya'd have to be smart enough to keep up the conspiricy. They like to paint him as an idiot. I don't believe Dubya's an idiot, nor do I believe there's a conspiricy - anymore than MY housemates and I watch out for each other. I did a recomendation for a guy I haven't seen since school a couple years ago. Even made a call.

Let's not forget that movie with Joshua Jackson and Coach Craig T. Nelson a few years back about the Skulls. Good lord, that was a bad flick.

Wait…if it’s MLK Jr. Day AND Pat Patterson’s Birthday…who gets the token win here?-- Matt "Excalibur05" Hocking on a match between Mark Henry and Rico

MH: What’s a clever way to say that I have a penis?
CJ: Uh…Mark, nobody’s going to buy that shirt.
MH: How about if I say that I’ve got…a…uh…?
CJ: Coming up with T-Shirt ideas is hard Mark, why not leave it to the WWE marketing department.
MH: I know! I’ve got it!
CJ: Got what?
MH: Stank! That’s Mah Stank! I’m gonna make a fortune!!
CJ: “That’s Mah Stank”?
MH: On the front it’ll say “Can You Smell It?” and on the back it’ll say “That’s Mah Stank”. Everybody’ll buy it because they’ll think it’s a Rock shirt.
CJ: You know…you might be on to something there, sad to say.
MH: I can’t wait to show mah stank to Trish.

You know, I have a feeling that Spanky didn’t quit, he was fired. Why? So they could repackage Mark Henry as “Stanky.” Think about THAT!

An actual Constitutional duty of the Senate, and neither party can manage to actually do it. Why? Stupid rules, which are not Constitutional, just rules that they arbitrarily set up for confirming judges. So the solution is to just change the rules....
