    Its not justification that it was a good attack to use. Its a statement saying that you can't compare these two situations in a legitimate way as is trying to be done.
    Has it ever occured to you that maybe, just maybe, the haircut was $50, and he left a $450 tip? Perhaps maybe Edwards was trying to help out someone who makes less than average wage? There are circumstances in which we are unaware, so perhaps your being way too critical?

    Shall he sell his house and move into a trailor park just so he can mingle with little America? She he start finding his clothes at the Salvation Army? Is that what you expect?

    Like I said, gimme a break.
    It seems Russian prostitutes are not the only leaking Donald Trump has witnessed. Sad!

    Gotta agree with Jallman. Edwards is a sissy. It's amazing he's not in the Republican Party, though, since that's where all the closet gays seem to be.

    I agree with Mr. McCain. We need to stay in Iraq for 100 years, then bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb Iran, and that Cindy McCain could be Miss Buffalo Chip. ;^)

    You apparently seem to be arguing against someone while quoting me.

    No, it didn't occur to me...because the whole thing DIDN'T MATTER TO ME. I'm not being critical of him, I'm saying that on the surface you can't compare the two things. Because on the same token, do you KNOW what she paid what these estimates are for all these things? Do you know if she saved up for any time to get those things? Do you know if those things are passed down or a gift or even borrowed or rented? Do you know if she got those before John McCain?

    No, I don't think we should sell his house and make him work in a trailor. And I don't think that Edwards, a politician who realizes that looks DO matter in politics, should not be able to get however expensive of a hair cut that he wants. What I'm SAYING is that the two can't be compared in regards to the validity of the attack as one was about a CANDIDATE whose actual main platform statement seemed hypocritical in the face of the haircut thing on the surface, to the WIFE of a candidate who has no platform and whose husbands main platform point isn't about "two americas" or "being here to prop up the little guy".

    That's all I'm saying. I'm NOT saying that it was a good attack, a correct attack, an issue I care about, or an issue that should've even been brought up. I'm just saying there are too many differences between this issue with Cindy McCain and the issue with Edwards to truly compare them as equal

    This is funny. So many Obama supporters were crying "no fair" when Michelle Obama was attacked for some her comments. Now they are trying to slam Cindy McCain because *gasp* she spends a lot of money on clothes. Do you think Michelle Obama bought her convention outfit off the rack at Wal-Mart?

    The McCains are loaded and if Cindy wants to spend a bunch of money on a nice outfit for herself, more power to her. I frankly don't care if she showed up dressed as the San Diego Chicken.

    And trying to spin it and say that its hypocritical to charge Obama with being an elitist is bull. Elitist isn't about what you wear or how much money you have - its about an attitude of saying "we know better than you." Cindy McCain's outfit didn't say that. Barak's "clinging to guns and religion" comment did.
    Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison - Unknown.

    Me too. In fact, I'm thrilled our Govt has gone another $4 trillion in debt over the past 7 years so that wealthy folks can afford to buy more stuff like that.

    How in the hell are the two related.
    If you build an army of 100 lions and their leader is a dog, in any fight, the lions will die like a dog. But if you build an army of 100 dogs and their leader is a lion, all dogs will fight like a lion.

    Go to the forum section titled "economics" and read the threads about tax policy, revenues and deficits.

    So do you think taxing the beer baroness would help the national debt and all that or do you think it would raise beer prices.

    Given that the price of beer is constrained by the market, the former rather than the latter.

    Right so an across the board windfall profits beer tax to keep that chick in proletariate line, the beer co's would accept a meager living before they raised prices.
