    I don't think dozens. Unless you're suggesting that in all government positions state and federal, you can find a dozen. Maybe. But no serious effort by anyone who can actually do that exists. True, you can be silly, or you can debate the actual point. Your choice.

    When talking to me, you're talking to me and not several posters. And I have paved no such road.

    Topics do diviate from time to time.

    In the words of one of our most famous posters: Be afraid my left wing friends. Be very afraid.
    To which Palin replied "I don't believe in the theory of gravitas".

    Thanx to Bill Maher for that joke. LOL.

    Anyway, Rove doesn't need to use Latin to sound smart. He's the guy who still says "nukular" so as to avoid sounding too smart.

    I'm telling you, it's a code word. He's saying Palin is too ditzy to be president.

    You might be surprised at the number of ditzy Americans out there that fall for that Palin smack. She seems to be drawing the whacko base away from the mainstream GOP. Much like the dems traditionally depending on the minority vote, the GOP has come to depend on the Limbaughnuts and FauxNewsters. Distancing themselves from the Palinite types is gonna cost the GOP some significant votes. Good news for the democrats, I suppose, but bad news for the country, IMO.

    You must not have seen the polls. Palin wasn't popular with the RINOs. She was immensely popular with conservatives.

    HOLD ON A SECOND. I think i've underestimated you. See I've always considered you to lack the "gravitas," I use that word because I just got a warning for using a much more appropriate word to insult someone's intelligence but I think, or at least hope, this explanation gets the point across about how I feel about your intelligence.

    Anyway, I always thought you lacked the gravitas to see anything more complex than a binary system, but now I've seen you've moved up to at least a ternary perspective. Now instead of seeing what you want and everything else as "socialist, communist, 6 other ist dictatorship" you've actually acknowledge that there exists something in between. Amazing.
