    so you like washpo when they talk your talk..
    sad you can't refute the story, but hey, at least you can't blame racism on this one since your guy is a bloated pasty-faced white guy.

    coulda, woulda from a whining elitist Rove/Repup--that's rich
    If believing that people should be self-sufficient makes me an elitist, so be it. I would rather be an alpha than a gamma.

    Well, one Scaliwag down. How many more to go?

    While President Cheney and Vice President Rumsfeld was pissing our national treasures away in Iraq for The United Interests of Halliburton, (as Buttboy Bush was partialing out our national surplus,) while we watched our retirement savings and home values being squandered by a deregulated Wall Street bunch of pirates with flag pins on their left lapels, this guy was neck deep in his own hustle.

    Never forget these ruthless politicians and their types. Yeah, your kneejerk reaction is to think Republican as that is the nature of the GOP beast. But they are ALL crooks IMO. Democrats too. I don't trust any of them.

    Honest politicians never get elected

    Honest politicians never get elected or even close.

    I ran TWICE in the last year on Total Transparency. And came in dead last both times.

    All elections are rigged by the powers that be so only their candidates stand a chance.

    My plan was to video everything and post it on youtube.

    Nope not one politician would stand up to an audit by WatchDogs / WhistleBlowers with a camcorder. They are all bad.

    Name one good one and I'll come do a video audit. Bet you won't find ONE.

    Yeah, the flag pins are de riguere. I remember Obama didn't wear one during his first presidential campaign and the rightwing noise machine went wild. I wish he had resisted their idiotic attack and refused to wear one, ever.

    I'm have tempted to have a rule -- never to vote for any politician who has to be reminded he's in the US by wearing a flag pin.

    I also think there's some kind of law: the more assiduous the politician is about wearing his flag pin, the more likely it is that he's a crook.
