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.
    This wasn't business though, this was campaign planning. I cant agree that once you think about running for office, the public has a right to every conversation you have.

    I guess you missed the pitchfork reference -- an allusion to ignorant peasants taking up arms in an irrational way. Mitch was laughing at those simple fundies. I mean they are ludicrous, but the cynicism is rather disgusting since he wants them to vote for him

    I seriously doubt that Mitch has to worry about who the members of Southeast Christian Church would vote for. Hell would freeze over before they'd vote for a pro-abortion person who laughed at their religious beliefs like Judd.

    Yeah, hence his cynicism.

    Any cynicism is in your mind only. They were stating facts.

    Confused...are you suggesting that the tape that Mother Jones published is bastardized and bogus?

    OR are you using James O'Keefe's videos to legitimize Mother Jones'?

    I'm saying that Mother Jones didn't report anything wrong. They put up the text that was said. No ripping out of context and all that jazz.

    Full disclosure though, I think those Progress KY guys should face the charges they got coming their way... but I don't see anything that MJ did wrong.
