    Tell him to throw it in reverse too, make sure this political career is dead. You don't want her hanging around as a political zombie like Palin.

    Yeah, it matters a bit. First, it is stupid, and that speaks to competence. Second, I have to ask is she's stupid or just pandering. Neither appeals to me much. So, I have more trouble with it than the sex silliness.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You won a primary. Libertarians win lots of primaries for their party too. You ain't won the election yet; and I don't think anyone wants these type of rabid religious nut jobs in control. What we need is to restore sanity and install some amount of intellectualism into government; not the exact opposite.

    Personally, I feel basic understanding and acceptance of science is a pre-requisite to anyone in a position as important as United States Senator. I don't know this for a fact, but given her strong faith there's a strong liklihood she doesn't accept the science behind evolution. If she can't accept basic biological facts, I have to wonder what else she might be grossly misinformed on. Say, for instance, basic economics.

    edit:
    CHRISTINE O'DONNELL: Well, creationism, in essence, is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24-hour periods. And there is just as much, if not more, evidence supporting that.
    Oh dear.

    Rove can think for himself without being all over FOX news and talk radio bashing her the way he is. It all sounds like sour grapes to me. He really wanted Castle to win. He's acting like a poor loser.
    Imagine that! A rightie being a "sour grapes poor loser"!!!!



    First time that's ever happened....

    There, fixed it for you. Now it's saying what you really believe.

    No. That is not likely what he or anyone else means.

    A good term for the Republican Party candidate for United States Senate in the state of Delaware.

    Laughable.

    She's just won the primary, and polls before actual candidates are nailed down are pretty useless, so it's too early for me to proclaim she'll never win. Therefore, I must for now consider the possibility that she has a chance of winning. Now it's not so funny. Faith is not a bad thing for a politician. Blind faith is.

    Of course it is. He believes, and you probably do too, that every scientific theory that reinforces liberal goals is correct, while those that don't are only believed by fruitcakes.
