    I'm not offended....just pointing out that it was an incredible stupid thing to say...especially if you have any aspirations of running for higher office. I question the judgement of these people more than the content of the statement.

    Whatever, man. Even Redress - no avid conservative he - knows you are only making yourself look foolish on this one.

    Yes. And the reason why it's a dumb thing to say is because of people like you who will desperately seek to strip it out of context in order to try to offend people with it.

    Perhaps because, by and large, Democrats lack the ability to make fun of themselves, they assume that Republiicans can't, either?
    There is a thought that how one jokes defines a person. I don't really adhere to it, but it isn't really about being offended alone.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I don't know if I'd go so far as to say "defines", but I do like the point that it can sort of describe. Self Depreciating humor, I think, is at least more honest, as well as less mean-spirited.

    On that I actually agree.

    As if there was ever any doubt why the chichen**** Boehner kept these clowns locked up for the last three months not in session with an Akin gag order. Watch R. Priebus put a muzzle on all of them for four more days as they chomp on the bit to kick the barn down .

    Not that the guy had any serious chance at all of ever becoming President....but you would think after Romney's 47% comment these clowns would learn.....Doh!
    So was he making a Republican joke or a gay joke?

    No, I am pretty sure he is making a joke about his homosexuality.

    It is only stupid if people make of it what it isn't, which is what you are trying and failing to do.
