    How was Hillary's health when Slick Willy raped Paula Jones? At least Newt didn't rape anyone.

    Exactly, anybody who dislikes Palin is obviously just threatened by her towering intellect. Not even our North Korean allies hanging out in nearby Russia can refudiate that, I read it in that one newspaper whose name I can't remember.

    You can't reason somebody out of something they were never reasoned into in the first place.

    LOL I don't hate Palin, but I admit I laughed on this one.
    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.

    At least she doesn't think there are 57 states in the union.

He said he'd never met someone who exuded more pure and unfiltered charisma than Clinton did, even out of the Presidency and that much older.

    Some people just ooze Charisma in person, and for whatever reason Slick Willy is one of the tops when it comes to that.
    Ooze is the correct word. Oozing got him into trouble. Lewinski's dress caught a load of his oozing charisma. Hopefully there wasn't any on his hand when your Pops shook his hand.

    Obama admitted to the mistake , he meant States and territories. Palin on the other hand likened herself to Shakespeare.

    You are full of ****. It's not our party that had a race laden primary in 2008. I don't recall a republican president hauling out the race card. When Keyes ran in 2000 there wasn't an incident. No surprise.

    Look at the history of the Republican party and you will find we are not the racist party. Fulbright mentored Clinton. Wright mentored Obama...

    BTW, my first choice in 2000 was Keyes. He was the most eloquent and his positions are clearly unapologetic conservative.

    I wish he would run this time.

    My guess is, he's backing another horse.
    Because it is typical to expect "new" and "different" during every single Presidential election, forgetting that last time was about "new" and "different". I don't know why anyone really buys into that horse crap anyhow. Bring on "old" and "true", please.

    I seriously hate Gingrich. It's not only that I hate his politics, but he's just a miserable excuse for a human being. I really, really, really hope he does not get the GOP nomination.
