    It's there sometimes, but not all the time. But you make your own assessment on this.

    I appreciate your defending me against a partisan like jallman. (jallman, I am yanking your chain.)

    I never argued that he was exhibiting professionalism! He's a potty-mouthed pig!

    And I am doing the same thing to you and you know it. We haven't had a brother/sister spat in a long time and we are way overdue.

    Yes she it, but in a cute way.

    I just think it takes away from someone when they speak like that...period. If he's talking to Obama one-on-one, his wife one-on-one, and situations like that with close friends--no big deal. But in any sort of situation where he is acting in his position as Chief of Staff--even in a private setting--I think it speaks horribly about him.

    I think it depends on the expectations of the people he is talking to. Was the meeting formal or informal? Was swearing and off color comments normal or not? A bunch of people sitting around strategizing, I don't have much issue with how they talk.

    This whole thing is Palin overreacting to something that matters not one bit, and a few people trying to use it to score political points one way or another.

    Is it really Palin overreacting? Is Tim Schiver overreacting, too, then?

    I don't care if they bother others. Not my problem.
