    You know what's really sad? It's the partisan right wing hacks here that would defend Guber on Mayberry RFD if he was a tea party candidate. He's one of us! Riiiiiight. :
    this comparison is unfair to the goober character
    besides being a dim bulb, goober was honest and had integrity
    the latter characteristics are sorely lacking in those candidates endorsed by palin's tebaggers
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    I'm not going to hold what she said on Politically Incorrect years ago, against her. It's a comedy/ entertainment show, and she seems to have succeeded in either being funny or entertaining. Apparenly Maher must have thought so to invite her back so many times.

    Nobody reads the whole posts. You skim a few lines and move one. If someone cannot make proper sentence structures then it is a waste of time.

    WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT?
    What I think is, what do you feel (site specific examples please) Charlie Rangel did that bares him the response from the right who also live in glass houses?

    PostPartisan - Charlie Rangel is no crook
    ~snip
    On his federal tax returns, Rangel failed to declare rental income from a vacation property he owns in the Dominican Republic -- a mortifying embarrassment for the one-time chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which writes the tax code. But certain facts about this transgression rarely get mentioned. For one thing, Rangel’s so-called “villa” can’t be very palatial, since it cost only $82,750 when he bought it in 1987. For another, Rangel has already filed amended tax returns and paid everything he owed, plus penalties and interest.

    The remaining charges are yawn-inducing. Even assuming that the allegations, as presented to the House Ethics Committee, are wholly true, the case against Rangel has a Gertrude Stein problem: There’s no there there.

    Rangel is accused of abusing his office -- using congressional staff, official stationery, and the unique access that his power and seniority gave him -- to raise funds for a Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at the City College of New York. The idea was to create an institution, situated in his Harlem district, that would house his papers and curate his legacy.

    This can accurately be described as hubris. But if it’s a crime for powerful, long-serving members of Congress to hold themselves in abnormally high regard -- and to believe that future generations can learn from their sterling example -- then we’re going to have to build more prisons.

    Rangel apparently was careless in filling out his required financial disclosure forms; he should have known better than to take that important exercise so lightly. And he’s accused of using a rent-controlled Harlem apartment as a campaign office -- which, I suppose, makes him the first New Yorker to look for loopholes in the city’s Byzantine rent-control laws. But where’s the old-fashioned venality? Where’s the out-and-out graft? Where’s even the hint of avarice?

    What’s missing is any allegation that Rangel bent or broke a single House rule -- or even a New York city ordinance -- for his own gain. The Ethics Committee charges make much of a promotional flyer for the proposed Rangel Center that indicated Rangel would have an office at the facility. But, come on, does that really constitute a “personal benefit” under the law? Does anyone think that the legendary Charlie Rangel, after representing Harlem for four decades, doesn’t have a friend or two who would be happy to give him all the office space he wants once he eventually retires?

    Rangel was trying to satisfy his ego, not line his pockets. The real crime would be if such a long, distinguished, important public career ended in disgrace.

    Re: Christine O'Donnell: 'I Dabbled in Witchcraft'

    Oh hells bells, is this seriously the best that the opposition to O'Donnell can do? They have so little real dirt on her that they have to go digging 10 or 20 years into the past?

    How about we focus on, oh I don't know, something more recent? Like the accusations about how she's spending her campaign money?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I'm sick of the type we have now. Millionaires who do everything they can to avoid paying their taxes, to the point they actually cheat on them. I'm sick of the ones who get sweetheart deals.
    Funny liberals scream at the republicans for not caring about the poor. Not caring about the people who can't pay their student loans and have their homes foreclosed on. Where's your compassion for O'Donnell?

    let me make sure i understand you
    your previous post indicated she should not be considered someone to be taken seriously while she was on politically incorrect 22 times
    but now - after she has been found lying about her education, accused of using her campaign contributions for personal purposes, had her home placed in foreclosure, and unsuccessfully sued her former employer, a very conservative non-profit, for $6.9 million, you want us to believe that she has the mettle to be elected a U.S. senator
    what surprises me is that i am even surprised by such an endorsement now, after the shrub, cheney, libby, rumsfeld, and the assortment of reich wing garbage inflicted on the American public

    Dirt! Dig up the diiiirt!

    What else happened a looong time ago for our beloved (or hated?)

    Clinton smoked but didn't inhale.
    Byrd inducted new members into the KKK
    Palin was a beauty-pagent-person
    Heck - 20 years ago clinton was president. . . dayum.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Was she campaigning while on PI years ago?
    I think you should check into Coons shady background and then you tell me who you would choose.
    Second thought, never mind. If you think Obama is doing a good job, you would want a Marxist in the seat no matter what else was in his background.

    Since you seem to know something about Coons background why don't you share with us all?
