Yes sir, Mr. President, I would like to buy some wood.

Bush got a laugh when he scoffed at Kerry's contention that he had received $84 from "a timber company." Said Bush, "I own a timber company? That's news to me."

In fact, according to his 2003 financial disclosure form, Bush does own part interest in "LSTF, LLC", a limited-liability company organized "for the purpose of the production of trees for commercial sales."

What's really funny is Kerry got this info from factcheck, which Cheney tried to allude to in the VP debate. Cheney mistakenly refered to the site as "" But Cheney cited, a for-profit advertising site based in the Cayman Islands.
The company decided to redirect traffic to the Soros site after it became inundated with hits — about 100 a second after the debate, John Berryhill, a Philadelphia lawyer for, said Wednesday.
"This was to relieve stress on the service and to express a political point of view," said Berryhill, who spoke with the site's administrators shortly after the debate ended.
They picked Soros not only for his political views, Berryhill said, but because the billionaire could afford the costly deluge of hits the site would receive in the wake of the debate. Plus, the site administrators didn't want to point surfers to a candidate's site that was asking for money.

Unfortunately is no longer redirecting to Soros site.
Check the link for bloopers from both the candidates.
