    This is like cancelling their debates on a UHF Hispanic network. No one watches those channels anyway.

    Plus, it's not as if those represent legitimate news organizations. Viewers there thought Trayvon was a fine, upstanding young man, too.

    Personally, I think if they could get the media openly attacking them out in the open, it would play well for the RNC. People hate the media worse than politicians.

    Well your point must not have been. Also just because I knock Obama for stuttering doesn't mean I am saying he is a poor speaker. So did you assume that **** or what. Is that where you go off thinking for others. As Not one time did I say Obama was a poor speaker. All I have done is trashed him for how he plays you lefties and the un-informed.

    My point was Obvious.....that Bilbo wasn't as intelligent as Obama. Yet he was out doing the same.

    What cracks me up is how those on the left CAN'T Handle when your man gets dissed in anyway. The only thing I can say.....get ready for more of it. That if you those on the left don't like it. Than Deal with it or lump it.

    can't stay, but can we make a deal? ... if you promise to be clever in your dissing, we won't mind - we might even laugh along with you ... (e.g. "he stutters when he speaks" is not clever ... it's dumb) ...

    On Thursday, Cook County Commissioner William Beavers was indicted Thursday on allegations of tax fraud. While the news made a few front pages the following day, the city -- and state -- responded overall with a collective sigh.

    Just last week, Chicago was named the most corrupt city in America according to a study by the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Illinois' Institute of Government and Public Affairs.

    The report cites federal data showing that, between 1976 and 2010, there were 1,531 convictions for public corruption in "the federal district dominated by Chicago," according to the Associated Press

    We rounded up some other local politicians who have been charged with corruption in Chicago, Cook County and Illinois. Since 1,531 slides seemed excessive, we stuck to some of the most recent corrupt officials. And since Beavers has yet to have his day in court, we left him out... for now. .....snip~

    This was just Chicago and the Democrats from 76 to 2010.....375 Democrats would be quite easy. Doesn't even count NY or L.A., Boston, and Detroit. Nor any other bastions of Liberaldom. But you're welcome to certainly try and bring it on.

    Nah 3 times should be enough. But I figured you would.....bet you were surprised about that bit between the check and gum tho. You didnt think he hid the Southern drawl while plying community activist now, just for the hell of it.

    Tell you what......when he can muster up and defend himself with the true diss. Then I'll think about it. Course then that would kinda leave those out who think they know what clever is or should be. <<<<< I guess that's when in the reality of things one pauses, and then looks over the shoulder at those who are standing round.

    Holy ****!! Your link includes Republicans!!



    George Ryan
    William Cellini
    Stuart Levine
    Betty Loren-Maltese
    Arthur "Ron" Swanson
    Scott Fawell
    Julie Starsiak

    ... that's at least 7 out of 26 ... or 1 in 3.7 -- nowhere near your 1 in 15 claim.

    But hey, aside from your miserable fail ... here are some more convicted Republicans ... about 200 Republican sex offenders ...

    Long list of Republican sex offenders....

    And unlike your link, which only identified the political leanings of 27 out of 1531 (the rest being a mix of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents) ... this is a list of Republicans.

    Alright, now you owe me another 3,000.
