    IMO she is one of those Stepford wives, maybe she is actually full of wires and electronics. Seriously anyone that stares like she does is either doing way too much cocaine or as previously mentioned a robot of some sort.

    Sorry Michele, nothing personal.

    I think reasonable people can differentiate between someone misspeaking occasionally (Biden) and someone who consistently demonstrates they don't really understand what they're talking about. (Palin)

    A fewer and fewer people defend the likes of Palin, that means the country is coming back to reason. Hopefully.
    In other words, my guy makes a mistake, it's an innocent gaffe. Your guy makes a mistake, he/she is an idiot.

    Thanks hazlenut. I can always count on you to provide an excellent example of liberal hypocrisy each and every time I comment on it. I knew I could count on you.

    By the way, you should really learn what a strawman is before throwing it out. If you had bothered to read what I posted, you would know that. Well, on second thought, I doubt you would.

    You know, if we disqualified every candidate who made an error or a gaffe while speaking on the campaign trail, we would have no candidates left for public office...

    Yes, this was a gaffe. But hardly an earth shattering one... and at least it can be said that NH lead the colonies in liberty in that it was the first one to declare indpendence from Britain...

    Last I checked, January was before May. Not only did NH declare independence, but even ratified a Constitution.

    History of New Hampshire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    New Hampshire was one of the Thirteen Colonies that revolted with the British rule in the American Revolution. In January 1776, it became the first colony to set up an independent government and the first to establish a constitution, but the latter explicitly stated "we never sought to throw off our dependence on Great Britain", meaning that it was not the first to actually declare its independence (that honor instead belongs to Rhode Island).

    Declaration of independence was on January 5th 1776... NH set up its own government and actually declared independence... a copy of the declaration is still on display in Exeter...

    Err, no... they did not actually DECLARE INDEPENDENCE.
