Retrain in a graduate English Class! Obviously they are not that desperate for a job. (actually, I'm jealous--I'd love to go to graduate school--especially in English, but I'm afraid and financially unable to leave my job, which, ironically, is teaching English) In the last week there has been a big surge in jobs; does Bush get any credit for that? The republicans are better at dirty politics these last fifty years because they studied the democratic tactics mastered and practiced in almost every major city in the country from the civil war to the 1950's. James Carville instilled a great fear in republican circles. He is that good. But, as Jay Leno said, "John Kerry probably has Billy Joel driving his campaign bus."
