    But else yes you are right. The right seems to "forget" the accusations against present and past members of Congress and Senate during the Bush years and before. Tom Delay comes to mind.
    Accusations is not the same as being guilty. Even members of Congress are innocent until proven guilty. If they are found guilty of a crime, then throw them in jail, like what happened to Duke Cunningham.

    For not agreeing with Vader, I'd bet.

    Cheney is responsible for people losing their homes and their lives. Why? So he and his cronies could act on their greed.

    And now they're playing the race card. Should we be shocked?

    Probably when he used his vote to break the tie on the issue of removing regulation of the financial industry. That being the case he and his republicronies are responsible for the recession.

    Sorry bout that, Common Sense came by and slapped me for falling for Vader's, ehm logic.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    About damn time. Corrupt politicians should do hard time in a prison in their home state.


    p.s. Hi Vader! Welcome back!
