    She isn't getting flak because she is a woman. She is getting flak because she is is a hypocrite. She had no problem with the water boarding terrorist until a bunch of pussyfist(pussy+pacifist,yeah I know its just sticking two synonymous words together) started whining how we were mistreating the poor wittle terwowist. Then she jumped on the waterboarding is torture short bus to toss the salad of these pussyfist for cheap votes. This is no different than any other politician who switches sides on a hot button issue for cheap votes.


    Politicians lie about their positions on certain issues for cheap votes all the time and some even slander troops for cheap votes and people in their own district as means of trying to guilt them into voting for a certain candidate and they still get re-elected to office. Voters in general have a short memory or a short attention span when it comes to politics and there is the fear that the other person can do a lot more damage than the candidate they have now.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Why do you feel the need to insult those who think differently than you?

    Dat's da facts, Jack.
    Thank you for so eloquently illustrating the Leftist Mindset!


    In other words, a poll which sparks extensive discussion of the issues is a "waste of space" to the Leftist, who believes that Lesser Mortals should accept what they are told by their Collectivist Betters with acclamation and alacrity, and never with analysis and healthy skepticism.

    You are a credit to your kind. Are you perhaps a clone?

    I believe that the operative term here, might be "think," as in, "that's what Conservatives do, and it makes them awfully lonely in political discussions with the Left."

    Please. If you can name me a single scientific organization that disagrees with AGW, then we can play your little game.

    And here's the torture documents:
    the newest ones:
    Newly released Bush documents detail torture tactics - The Boston Globe
    others:

    Both sides are guilty of it.The pro-gay and tranny crowd falsely labels anyone who disagrees with them as hate moungers,bigots,ignoramuses and homophobes. The anti-war crowd labels anyone who disagrees with them calls them war mongers and fallaciously calls Bush a war criminal and jump on every troops are guilty band wagon. The pro-illegals crowd falsely labels anyone who is actually against illegal immigration as racist,xenophobes, anti-hispanic or nazis/jackboots. The man made global warming fairy tale believers label anyone who disagrees with them as like people who believe the earth is flat or as being bought off by big oil(as though that is some legitimate excuse for dismissing their claims when big oil doesn't give a ****). So please do not sit there like a hypocrite and act like you or your side is so innocent.

    And I don't like any of that. I at least am consistent(usually, except when I screw up). To go with your first example, I am firmly for gay marriage, but understand that people against it can be against it for principled reasons.

    You referred to some one like me, who feels that waterboarding is torture and we should not engage in it as a "pussyfist". Not only is it unfair, as I am niether of the two terms you stick together, but also dismissive in a way that I would not(I hope) do to you.

    Well, as we now know, and is being discussed as I'm writing this on This Week, waterboarding was done to provide cover for the Bush administration's lead up to the Iraq War, trying to add gravitas, by suggesting, falsely, that Saddam Hussein was linked to Al-Qaeda...which we know, for a fact to be untrue. Today.
    Nobody but nobody does hypocrisy and lies better than the right.
    And I wonder if you'd apply that term to anyone who chose not to serve in or support the Vietnam War, knowing what we know today?

    Nothing but left wing Bush bashing conspiracy theorist drivel. Of course we have wackos on the right like the For every Bush Lied to get us into Iraq,Bush stole the elections, Bush master minded 9-11 and other left wing conspiracy theorist nuts the right has the Obama is a closet muslim and Obama is not a natural born American conspiracy,Obama is a Kenyan, Obama lost his natural born citizenship when his step father adopted him making him a Indonesian citizen and other theorist nuts. I am sure that further into Obam's presidency there will be more right wing conspiracy theorist allegations. Then when there is another president there will be diehard bashers making up lies for that person too.

    And I wonder if you'd apply that term to anyone who chose not to serve in or support the Vietnam War, knowing what we know today?
    I have absolutely no respect for any draft dodger and deserter. Generations of men before them were drafted in WWI WWII Korean war and other conflicts/wars and the degenerates in the 60s were the only ones to run.
