    If their constituents are still electing them, then they are obviously still representing their constituents.

    Get it?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Well we already discriminate on the basis of age alone for many other things, such as when people are allowed to vote, and when people are eligible for Social Security, and when people are allowed to legally drink alcohol and use tobacco products. So please don't act like this is something that isn't done already.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Or maybe it's the one who doesn't realize that while General Dynamics is a private business who provides jobs General Dynamics gets the money to employ people from money provided by government contracts.

(1 Highway Patrolman per three counties at some times for example)

    But, I understand what she is TRYING to say, she could have said it alot better though.

    Her point is that congress is going to be more focused on getting elected over the next year than fixing what they can.
    This thread is a perfect example of what is wrong with politics today, even though MrV didn't realize it. Politicians cannot even make a simple joking comment like this without dishonest people misrepresenting. On the other hand, people like you, willing to see past your partisanship(which is a positive, it's only when partisanship is taken to an extreme that it is bad) that do offer me some hope for the future.

    If it was a joke, North Carolina Democratic Governor Bev Perdue needs to polish her delivery.

    Newly released audio contradicts the claims of Perdue’s press team that her call Tuesday for suspending Congressional election was a joke or hyperbole. In the recording, her tone is matter-of-fact and her comments are part of a serious speech.

    “Listen to the Governor’s words: She wasn’t joking at all,” North Carolina GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood told The Daily Caller. “The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability.”

    “If it was a joke, what was the set-up?,” Lockwood adds. “What was the punch-line? Where was the pause for laughter? It took them three hours to say it was a ‘joke,’ but when that flopped it became ‘hyperbole.’ We’ll just call it an unconstitutionally bad idea.”

    That doesn't mean ****. It's a private company providing a service and goods. The Government is their prime customer. And? That's weaksauce logic on your part. So your "it's a joke" spin.

    Yes, because a republican says she was, it must be true. I am not sure if you are actually that gullible, or if you are being intentionally dishonest, though I lean towards the latter.

    It may sound serious to you, but then, you're the Sarah Palin of debate politics. What else should we expect?
