    Oooh...

    Come on petty people. I have supported what I called gay marriage since about 1997, people in my church oppose it. I still like them, although misguided. This "girl" did what nobody this forum could ever hope to do.

    She deserves some respect for that. I mean people were orgasmic when Obama got a Democratic Senate Nomination HANDED to him without lifting a finger...
    Who on this thread has shown disrespect towards her? I've seen quite the opposite in fact. Most comments are along the lines of "Although I disagree with many of her stances, it is great to see someone young get elected." Not sure how that is disrespectful.

    She wouldn't have gotten my vote, but she is certainly cute and will be fun to watch!

    Meh. Nobody on this thread is really showing disrespect towards Blair. If anything, the posters on this thread seem bent on twisting tres borrachos's words to pick a fight. Very few people are directly referencing the OP at all.

    Just another day on DebatePolitics.

    You know, it takes a pretty giant sack of balls to criticize Obama for being too inexperienced when he first ran for president, then turn around and elect an eighteen year old.

    Either a giant sack of balls, or a complete lack of self-awareness.

    A lack of awareness so dense that light can't escape it.

    Not really, she's not an executive and she's one of over 400. I can deal with that. Can't say the same about POTUS, besides look how it turned out.
