    And this qualifies as breaking news, how? Let's hold people accountable for what they do and worry less about what they say. People say dumb stuff all the time, but really, how much of any of it is really important?

    Well it's obviously important enough for you to post in this thread about how it isn't important. Nobody forces you to read EACH breaking news piece. Don't like it, move on.

    Yes, it is. Yet for someone who thinks this is sooooo unimportant, here you are.

    Except the only way to know if you want to even see what she does, is by listening to what she says. Are you suggesting that one should be elected regardless of what they say? And then the electorate should just live with it, even if what she'd been saying indicated that she was too stupid to be of any use to anyone? How bizarre. But I guess it confirms the idea that Republicans idolize ignorance.

    God!!! I wish I could find a Youtube video of him being asked a question by Chicago reporters and vaulting over the hood of a nearby car only to continue running down the street.
    Oddly enough, no one is running to defend Rostenkowski the way right wingers are rushing to defend Palin and this nutsack

    Are candidates normally asked where they think the president was born?

    When they say they don't think he was born in the US, yes they are

    For sports, I follow things like football and baseball, I haven't turned politics into my sport.
    But if she's not a birther, the question takes one second to answer. "Hawaii." That's not remotely like "have you stopped beating your wife." That question presumes the person is a wife beater. That's the first problem. The second problem is that because of the assumption embedded in the question, it cannot be answered without providing the questioner with a line of additional attack.

    A simple answer to "where was Obama born" presumes nothing. It's a straightforward question. You can ask me that right now and I'll end the discussion right away. Hawaii!

    Or, maybe she's a birther, and lots of voters, me included, want to know before we cast our votes for a birther. Clinging to that conspiracy nonsense tells me something very important about a candidate - IMO they're stupid, or pander to the stupid. But maybe you think the opposite - if they believe Obama was born in Hawaii, there is no question, THEY are the stupid ones. Either way, it's a distinguishing viewpoint.

    There's only 3 of us on this forum who remember him.
