Apparently one of the people who forwarded this email is not at all happy that he was called out for it:

Don’t threaten me with what I can or can not forward, truh, half truth, jokes, beliefs. Nothing different than what we see on TV, hear on the radio, read in the paper and what our government tells us. We take it with a grain of salt.
As an independent, I keep my mind open and decide what is relative, reliable and worth ‘filing’
Your pompous, arrogant attitude has settled it for me,Thanks for helping me make up […]

Just look at the body language in this clip and tell me which person’s candidate is doing better:

I obviously like Kyle a great deal. He’s solid and very cool and collected. We’ve only ever met once I think down at ProgressOhio on election night in 2006. He is really well spoken and I think represents our side very well. I actually also like Ben quite a bit. I’m not sure what it is, but he just seems like a decent guy. He’s capable of going a bit wingnutty, but we all have our weaknesses. We do need to […]

We’ve officially hit rock bottom. When asked this question:

In general, are you satisfied or dissatisfied with the way things are going in The United States at this time?

Only 9% said satisfied.

That’s the lowest number EVER on record at Gallup. What is the most important problem they are dissatisfied with?

Net economic problems – 69%
Iraq War – 11%
Government/Politicians – 9%
Healthcare – 5%
Ethics/Moral decline – 4%
Education – 3%
Illegal aliens – 3%
