    I agree, just a bit hard to swallow when Trent Lott not resigning was seen as stretchin it mere yeas ago. The double standard so blatant here, we'll stop calling Reid a racist when the next misquote by a Republican is ignored. Fair?

    I just love the tit for tat attitude of some of our more "partisan" folks. What's right seems to be irrelevant to y'all. Getting in "shots" seems to be all that matters.

    to me it's not a matter of "shots" as you say. it is in my opinion, living up to the rhetoric that is hurled at those on the right in the first place. If what is good for the goose....and so on. But I think that it shows the true thin skinned nature of liberals that are crying so loudly here Cap......

    I concur. Politics a nasty and high stakes game and I don't fear nor should my Republican Party fear, playing it. They want to call you a ridiculous looking comparison making attack dog, then snarl...extend fangs, bare teeth...and wear that collar proudly.

    It's a dog fight, Gentlemen. You've got the Senate and House and President making more midnight deals in this most corrupt of unconstitutional legislative endeaors. They promised we'd see it all on cspan, they now make backroom midnight deals without a single Republican in the room. Their campaigns a mere year ago have turned out to be a campaign of lies and deceit and as if we need another example...Gitmo isn't closing in one year...case anyone still cares.

    I say on a national scale, we forget "shots" and start hurling nuclear weapons. On this forum however, the utmost respect for the other side of the aisle I will continue, the occasional jab or shot just how the game is played.

    It seems that you made your post to riddiclule blacks in a mean spirited nature. When it was done in the movie it was done not to riddicule but to enlighten.

    It seems like sophism to me with racial undertones.

    It seems like you used it like rush limbaugh for race baiting.

    That's only my opinion. Opinions are like butt holes. Everybody has a different one.

    No it was done for comedy, after all the movie was comedy. You take life far to seriously and you are trying to find things that don't exist(in my regard). In my world everyone is green, unlike most in this country who will never know but, will pretend to know.

    I'm not saying you need to stop calling Reid a racist, I'm just saying don't stretch it. Calling for a resignation is really stretching it, and makes you look bad. Stay in the justified position, please.

    Resignation is called for, Reid has violated the trust of the people and violated the constitution that he was sworn to uphold, along with everyone else who is pushing this healthcare bill.
