If I do remember correctly the current Vice President got scored by the left for saying Barack Obama was well spoken and some prominent Republicans defended him. Why is it they are asking Reid to step down over this now? Which one is it. Either you defend people for saying the word negro in regards to Barack Obama or you scorn them. You can't have it both ways.
    We know why the conservatives are up in arms over this. It's a chance to bitch at a liberal.

    Not even close.

    You think Juan Williams would have defended him on that if it was a racist comment?
    I gotta say that O'Reilly was unfairly attacked on that one.

    I enjoy when Juan Williams is on The Factor as he seems so fair. He should have a show!

    I do, however feel that both of them are idiots for not having the wherewithal to prevent such inadvertent offense.

    Unintentionally racist? Give me a break! They are both scum

    Right, because liberals would never do that.

    No, Kali, in fact, I am not kidding you, nor anyone else. It's quite possible indeed for something to be tasteless without being racist.

    Yea cause when I'm thinking about what characteristics I want in a politician, the most important one is that he keep it real.

    You've got to be ****ing kidding me.

    Plus he would probably make da green and prostitution legal in all states.
    No, you're not kidding. Wow.

    Not to mention you can bet he would up wages for blue collar workers.
    News flash: Snoop doesn't give a **** about you or other blue collar workers. He is a millionaire who has made his money off of convincing people like you that he's "keeping it real."

    Snoop is very involved on a local level with his childrens schools and have even been a football coach. Do not underestimate this man..
    Oh well ****, if he coached Pee Wee football, we should just skip Congress and elect him President!

    I find it pretty telling that you do not think some normal every day person should be POTUS.
    Setting aside the fact that Snoop is not a "normal every day person," you're right. I don't, because "normal, every day people" are ****ing stupid and should not be in charge of running anything, much less the country.

    I want normal people working at normal jobs. I want exceptional people running my country.
