Loyalty Oath program related activities

For a couple of straight-shootin' cattle drivin' cowboy playing politicions, they sure seem to a pretty thin skinned pair. First it was the protest zones, then people tossed out of or not allowed to attend campaign appearances because they wore t-shirts that did not flatter the cry-baby in chief. Now it is a loyalty oath of sorts required to attend a vice presidential event in New Mexico:

Some would-be spectators hoping to attend Vice President Dick Cheney's rally in Rio Rancho this weekend walked out of a Republican campaign office miffed and ticketless Thursday after getting this news:
Unless you sign an endorsement for President George W. Bush, you're not getting any passes.

The Albuquerque Bush-Cheney Victory office in charge of doling out the tickets to Saturday's event was requiring the endorsement forms from people it could not verify as supporters.
Now I thought that these guys were my president and vice president for better or worse, I guess that I have been mistaken. Apparently Smirky and Snarly believe themselves representatives of the elect i.e. republican and preferably rich:

State Rep. Dan Foley, R-Roswell, speaking on behalf of the Republican Party, said Thursday that a "known Democrat operative group" was intending to try to crash Saturday's campaign rally at Rio Rancho Mid-High School.
Better call Ridge, oh wait, he's looking for another job because, ya know, it's damn near impossible to put your kids through college on a 178,000 dollar salary. Waaahhhhaaahhh,
there are known Democrat operative groups coming to crash the party...I feel the vapors...
Here any way is a portion of the oath:
An endorsement form provided to the Journal by Random says: "I, (full name) ... do herby (sic) endorse George W. Bush for reelection of the United States." It later adds that, "In signing the above endorsement you are consenting to use and release of your name by Bush-Cheney as an endorser of President Bush."
What will these nuckleheads come up with next. Boggles the mind.
