    Too far a jump. Princesses are real, they exist.

    Good question... Atheist divorce rates are also lower than average.

    They also have some the highest teen pregnancies rates, so that isn't surprising... The parents push marriage on them.

    It's like when Palin announced Bristol's pregnancy and said she'd marry the father... that wouldn't have worked out. Jamie Lynn Spears and her boyfriend weren't doing so great the last time I heard about that...

    Kinda makes me wonder what these republican leaders actually think of their voter base if the only way they think they can appeal to them is by making them afraid of boogeymen.
    I tend to agree. I don't know what these republican leaders are thinking, and I wish they thought more highly of their voter base. Nonetheless, being a person of lofty ideals like compassion, courage, and hope, I take solace in the fact that it could be 100 times worse. Newt could have been a democrat:

    Athiests don't worry me, believers of Islam do.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Hey, Captain Courtesy...

    Could you repost that list of conservative words Newt suggested all Republicans should use again? I want to know if "secular" was among the list.

    You mean Dave Chappelle is a Muslim? When did this happen? Have you seen his shows? No Muslin would dare speak the way he does. But you gotta love his brand of comedy - RAW and honest to a fault.

    It happened in 1998.
