another one bites the dust...

Paul Newman: 1925-2008
A committed liberal, Newman openly campaigned for several Democratic Party candidates -- which got him onto Republican president Richard Nixon's famous list of enemies in the 1970s.

"Being on president Nixon's enemies list was the highest single honor I've ever received," Newman said in a 2006 interview. "Who knows who's listening to me now and what government list I'm on?"
Really wished he went ahead with his thought of going up against Lieberlips back in '06. 'Course he wouldnt've finished his first term, but even an empty seat is better'n Ol' Joe Lieberlips.

Loved Newman's movies too. Gonna miss the big lug...
