    Which is exactly what they were trying to do.... Oh wait, I forget. They got permission from Landrieu's office, who knew all about it, and who agreed. Right?

    Hear that thump, thump, thump sound, going down the road? It's my ass. I totally laughed it off. Someone please fetch it for me.

    And thanx for playing, even if it WAS in your sleep. LOL.

    I for one am not going to defend this man. He broke the law, and should be prosecuted for it. It is one thing in my eyes to out a corrupt group taking my tax money to undermine this country, and its values. But another all together to do anything of the sort that may be a threat to any of our Senators, Congress people, or President. These people as reprehensible as they are are our elected leadership, and need to be protected from threat. Leave the outing of corruption to professional agencies.

    j-mac, I don't always agree with you but still, YOU ROCK. You bring dignity back to the label "conservative." I'm right with you bro. Maybe, soon, conservative will really mean conservative and us middle of the road conservatives can wear the label again with pride.

    And thank you for doing your part to show that the Conservative movement really does have integrity and values. You are the real deal, and definitely not one of the fringe elements that despoil us. Makes me feel good to know that we are on the same side.

    And, the same folks that want these dudes to get fried would be calling it, "patriotic".

    BTW, I don't think anyone has defended them. Only that this isn't the capital crime that some are making it out to be. Why, there's one poster that is insisting that they actually tapped Mary's phones and that's just not true.

    Personally, in a post 9/11 era, I would worry less about what these guys were doing and more about how they seemed to be able to pull it off so easily.

    Re: Activist filmmaker arrested in senatorís office

    thanks guys and gals.

    I wish you could have heard the expletive uttered while driving home today, and after yesterday of the news speculating that he wasn't there trying to tap the phones, today two of the men with him admitted to it....I mean for Christ's sake! It's hard enough out here trying to hold our own after the the deserved thrashing we took in '06, and '08, but we are starting to rebuild, starting to get it again, and then this kid has to go and do something stupid like this.

    I prefer to win on legal, fair and square basis.


    The Salahi's should be jailed, and so should this guy.

    What's next, some one with a gun and a mental disorder?

    Give the dems time. Their thrashing will soon come. That's politic's for ya!

    It's not Obama so much that's gonna get them in hot water. Most of America still supports him. It's the congress and senate that the people are having problems with (Obama hater's notwithstanding.)
