    Noone is saying that a democratic representative would be any better. I know it is tough to believe, but it is possible to hold all politicians to the same standard.

    And Mitch is there to exploit such prejudice, while apparently laughing cynically at fundamentalists for believing it.

    The more I read the transcipt, the more this sounds like a frat party

    Judd's voice: I still choose the God of my understanding as the God of my childhood. I have to expand my God concept from time to time, and you know particularly I enjoy native faith practices, and have a very nature-based God concept. I'd like to think I'm like St. Francis in that way. Brother Donkey, Sister Bird. [Laughter.]

    Presenter: Brother Donkey, Sister Bird! [Laughter.]

    Male voice: The people at Southeast Christian [Church] would take to the streets with pitchforks. [Laughter.]

    Their little role playing is downright weird:

    Prejudice??

    They are simply saying that the majority of Kentuckians will not agree with Judd's opinions on religion.

    Role playing?? What the hell are you blathering about now?

    Yes. What kind of insane person thinks nuclear weapons are going to be an effective weapon against an aquatic creature!?

    OK, then why put them on submarines?

    What kind of sane person thinks that Ashley Judd would actually run for office?

    I'm glad we agree what Mitch McConnell is not sane.

    Re: McConnell aides secretly taped ripping Ashley Judd

    this might actually not be eavesdropping in accordance with kentucky law. If one of the participants consents to be taped then the conversation can be recorded. If this was internal then it would have been legal. Unlike some other states i guess kentucky does require all participants to make the conversation private. Though i do doubt that one of the participants is a leak so someone probably committed a felony.

    Of course, i have a problem with this law on both sides. I am one of those people who believes when you enter public service as a government legislator or executive the public has a right to know what you are saying. That goes for both parties and any candidates. I think we all would have a much better idea of both party's intentions if we could hear everything those people said. granted certain things should be redacted for national security reasons, but when politicians are in their private meetings they are making decisions and promises that effect us all, and because of that their words should be very public. If they want more privacy then they can chose another line of work.

    Nothing immoral about trying to personally attack a person based on their past psychiatric history.

    I guess I won't hear a peep about attacking Palin's views based on her kid's history as a 16 & Pregnant reject or her milking of a mentally challenged kid for votes, or whatever other personal history we were told we couldn't use to attack Palin.

    Then again, if this had been Obama's plan or his name was even mentioned in a conversation between two guys in a coffee house plotting something similar, we'd hear about leftist smear tactics or Chicago politics or some other such boogieman.

    Planning to smear someones personality is wrong. So is bugging someones office for political gain. So is the hypocrisy of anyone who tries to make us think only Republicans act this way.
