"Oh Poop: In a fund-raiser the Lodi Republican Women to provide scholarships to children of soldiers killed or severely injured, visitors were asked to buy squares for "chicken poop bingo," where if the chicken leaves its calling card in your square, you win a prize.

But there was a twist to the time-honored tradition - players were to choose a liberal of their choice and place it on their square. So you would not only win the prize if the chicken left its very best on your square, it could be an assault on Hillary Clinton as well. Or Jane Fonda, Johnny Depp or Cindy Sheehan.

Others "honored" by being the chicken's potential target included Jerry Brown, Jimmy Carter, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, Howard Dean, Jesse Jackson, Alec Baldwin, Bill Maher and the American Civil Liberties Union." Grapevine column, Lodi News-Sentinel, 8/21/06.

Imagine the following:

Oh Donkey Poop: In a fund-raiser local Democrats hosted to help raise money for "Operation Helmet," (http://www.operation-helmet.org">http://www.operation-helmet.org attendees were asked to buy poster-size paper for "donkey poop bingo," where if the donkey leaves its calling card in your square, you win a prize.

But there was a twist to the time-honored tradition - players were to choose a right-wing conservative of their choice and place it on their square. So you would not only win the prize if the donkey left its very best on your square, it could be an assault on George W. Bush as well. Or, , Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld or Karl Rove.

Others "honored" by being the donkey's potential target, included Ronald Reagan, Oliver North, Alberto Gonzales, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, the Revs. Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, William Kristol, Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong Il, Mahmud Ahmadinejad, (DeLayAbramoffPombo - a threefer) and Project for a New American Century.

Envision the righteous indignation if these two stories (the first one being true) were reversed.
