I guess that could work, stephley...though if we're going the Monty Python route, I'm going to want to slap some people in the face with fish, and catapult a bloodthirsty killer bunny or two at them as well :D

Their revolution was nasty bloody Jude, could we just taunt the rich like in Monty Python & the Holy Grail... maybe catapult a farting cow or two in their direction?

Personally, my favorite french word /phrase is "le jambon" and "il est huit heurs"! These words just roll of the tongue beautifully!

Didn't Nader do that last time, too? And I know it's a generational thing, but I think it's weird when people don't know how to use the internet. Even Bush looks at pictures of the ranch on the google!

Cool photo of the planes over the Arc de Triomphe. Nader will debate a dummy. So there will be 2 dummies debating, in other words.

Speaking of France, I would like to suggest a French Revolution-style uprising of our own. Sure, all that would happen is that a new ruling class would emerge after the violent topple of the old one, but at least we could have some fun with guillotines before that happens ;)
