For instance, despite Fox News having done a positive bit on "rapper" Common a while back, the current story is that he's a thug rapper who advocated killing cops and President Bush. The Oprah Winfrey of rappers is now a "thug" to the right. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here!
    You and me both, brother.

    And I'm a big dirty "leftist" because I call out Fox News and the Palinites.

    The Far-Right has moved so far away from center it seems like left...

    I would love to see Bachmann on "Are you smarter than a 5th grader?"

    It would seem that anyone who spent time on the internet would realize that people say stupid things here. I was totally unsurprised to hear that some anonymous commenters said some hateful things. Imho, it wouldn't've matter to much what she had said or done--someone one the internet is likely to say something stupid about it.

    I was merely reiterating the sitaution.

    The reason the Teen is really not all that brave nor intelligent is NO Politician outside of local levels would ever be DUMB enough to take them up on such a debate. It'd be political suicide. Bachamann would, regardless of performance, judged badly by pretty much everyone if she took up such a debate.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    My nephew and niece-in-law were co-captains of their high school debate team. Once they graduated, they coached for I wanna say 3-5 years. Anyway, I often wonder how their children are going to survive being teens when mom and dad are so very good at debate.

    Easy -- mom and dad are good, but since the kids are going to grow up in that environment, they'll be even better.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    No, you're a big dirty leftist because all you do is spew forth hatred like you do in this thread. You condemn calling someone names by calling people names.

    You really should just tuck and run, man.

    It's so hard for the far-right base to admit the intellectual shortcomings of their party.

    Newt had one decent idea, and they through him under the bus for Lady Nada.

    You're welcome.
    What I want to know is since when is a presidential candidate required to debate someone who isn't even old enough to vote in the election? She's a child, she should be in school, not challenging public officials. The threatening her was stupid, but so was asking this woman to debate. Who does this little teeny-bopper think she is, anyway?

    Yeah, was just me-tooing because "Welcome to DP" seemed too short by itself.

    I agree with the adage that you can often judge stature by enemies. But I don't think that it reflects on the teen that much at all. If I were the politician, I wouldn't've debated her either for the reasons already stated here.

    I may have reached out and offered her an internship or some other similar gesture. That would firmly establish the nature of our relative statures and made me look like a good guy.
