    Agreed. That's why I ended it.

    Oh well, I guess if we did not have partisan sniping and everybody agreed then there would be no one left to kill and it might get boring.

    Yes, yes they did, and I agree with you that Lott's statement was probably not racist in nature, just as I don't think Reid thought about what he was saying before he let it fly.


    It isn't any different, of course. It's the usual partisan sniping, "your party did it too! Did not! Did too! Your party does it worse than my party! Does Not! Does too! If your party does it, then mine has to too!

    It reminds me of fourth grade a lot.

    As usual Ditto, you make a good point. But precedent is precedent is it not? I would think that the two are comparable, and thus it should be Reid's turn to walk the plank. If not now, he surely will in Nov.


    If one party shoots barbs and makes mountains out of molehills, then the other must do the same. It's a cardinal rule of partisan politics.

    BTW, the p*****ng contest between Gill and Glinda is getting tiresome to say the least.

    One of the rules for radicals from Allenski is to make sure your enemy has to abide by their own words and rules, while you get to break them. Precedent was set when demo's made such a stink with Lott, now we are supposed to turn our heads and not do the same for Reid....This has to be called what it is.

They all belong to the oligarchy that really runs this country behind closed doors.
    I agree but the laws do exist, it's just that we don't enforce these laws nor do we demand it.

    If you honestly believe Reid should resign for his use of racial stereotypes, why do you work so hard to avoid saying Steele should also resign for his use of racial stereotypes?

    Here, I'll make it easier for you: Do you believe Steele should resign for his use/perpetuation of racial stereotypes?

    Yes or no. Pick one.
    LOL, I am not working hard at all in regards to Steele, personally I think Steele should resign he isn't a strong enough leader. Therefor let him resign for what he said no argument here but, whomever makes the case about racial overtones in Steele's case...good luck. If for example Reid called Scott Brown a cracker, whomever would have the same problem making a case about racial overtones. The culture has changed and we have allowed groups of the same race to use derogatory terms in regards to race and when insults are directed at each other this has been considered the norm.

    Yes, let's call it what it is. I believe I did just that: It is silly, childish partisan sniping. In other words, it is business as usual between the two major parties.

    So if I read you right, and I think I do, your saying that republicans that put up with some of the worst political sniping over the last eight years should what? Just take it, and be quiet?

    No, not at all. I would expect them to do exactly what they are doing. What I'm saying is that neither party has the high ground in this matter.

    Should the Republicans take the high road, when the Democrats don't? I'm not sure. I wonder whether the voters would realize that is what is happening, and see only one party as being childish and silly, or whether they would take at face value what the opposition is saying.

    I'm guessing that the Republicans are better off to just snipe back at the Democrats. The voters aren't paying that much attention anyway.

    So, if I read YOU right, you are saying that Republicans should currently act exactly like Democrats did during those 8 years, proving that they are just as scummy, right?

    As exampled by what, the recent Virginia, New Jersey, or Massachusetts elections? Oh, I think they're paying attention, I think the political tsunami that just hit Tuesday night demonstrates voter anger and participation.
