Letters to the Guardian 
Last week, the liberal English newspaper the UK Guardian obtained voting registration records for one hotly contested Ohio county, and then invited Guardian readers to 'adopt a voter' and write them letters about why they should vote for Kerry over Bush.

The scheme, predictably, generated thousands of letters and emails right back to the Guardian.

This is my favorite:

I suggest that if a particular reader of the Guardian would like to vote in America - would really like to influence the American election, say - that reader should move to America, become a citizen of the United States. Everyone is welcome here. Even the readers of the Guardian. But if you don't wish to be an American, to live in Ohio, for instance, and participate in the American political process, that is too bad. Perhaps there is something wrong with you. Perhaps it is your teeth.
