    That's great news. When immobilized, being able to get around is everything. Funny how that works, and works every time. So, now you admit you have an agenda. I knew it!

    Since the whole Cincinnati operation was run by a rightwing republican, don't you think conservatives should less about it and not more?

    This whole thing has blown up in Issa's face. It was apparently a set up by a GOP operative who either wanted to promote a false scandal, or who hated the tea party because it was destroying the GOP's electoral chances.

    Take your pick!

    The manager said he was a "conservative Republican" which is meaningless. I was a registered Republican even when I switched and started voting for Democrats. And the the term conservative is subjective. So, don't put much faith in his statement.

    actually, I'm advocating protecting it, not selling it the way you are ... still, enjoy your day ...
