Billion Dollar Ball$

Billionaire George Soros is spending his money on an anti-Bush election campaign. He is distributing his pamphlet, Why we must not re-elect President Bush, to 2 million voters. He is travelling to 12 cities to speak with local news and media about why we must not re-elect President Bush. He also plans to run ads in several US papers including the Wall Street Journal.

(From Turkish "This is the most important election of my lifetime," Soros writes in the brochure. "I have never been heavily involved in partisan politics but these are not normal times. President Bush is endangering our safety, hurting our vital interests and undermining American values. That is why I am sending this message."

It's probably not a good idea to get on Mr. Soros's bad side. Dennis Hastert suggested on Fox News Sunday (link here for transcript of show) back in August, that Mr. Soros has been earning his billions through illegal drug activity (link here for Slate article).

What will happen next? Will George Soros run a successful anti-Bush campaign? Will the undecideds (if they actually still exist) issue their one vote for a viable candidate like John Kerry or give their votes to candidates that don't stand a chance in hell of winning like Ralph Nadar or Homer Simpson? We'll just have to wait until November to find out.
