    The bald-faced, unapologetic hypocrisy from Hillary...or the lemming-like, thoughtless support she gets from the useful idiots who make up her base.
    Hillary is a politician. If she loses the election, she'll go back to being an annoying private citizen flying around the world and giving speeches for 6 figures. Her devoted supporters will be stupid forever.

    I think the blame for the name should be aimed at those who named it, not for those who speak there. Why not try to keep political discussions on sensible subjects.

    If they had named that event after Benedict Arnold, would Hillary be justified in speaking there? If the event touted a President who is alleged to being an alcoholic, would Hillary be justified in speaking there?

    Or does she get a pass because she didn't name the event?

    Come on...liberals are known to favor style over substance. Stick with the style, eh?

    Yes. No justification required.

    Of course.

    There is nothing to pass. It is a non issue.

    I think that statement is true of politics in general. We need to find a way to stop electing politicians.
