    Rule No. 1: Don't get photographed speaking to Nazis

    You would think a candiate for Congress wouldn't need this advice. And you would be wrong.

    Republican Tony Zirkle, who is seeking the nomination for the Indiana 2nd Congressional District, spoke to a neo-Nazi gathering celebrating the birth of Adolf Hitler (that's April 20, in case you forgot to send a card). To their credit, local Republican party officials have expressed their disgust with Zirkle, and the front-running candidate for the nomination has refused to debate Zirkle, for fear of legitimizing his candidacy.

    Here's Zirkle in action: Jumbo photo here!

    Notice the banner across the front of the table? It's just like a kid's birthday, except the guest of honor is 119 years old, universally reviled, and dead.

    Fringe GOP candidate spends Hitler's birthday with neo-Nazis

    I don't want to cast aspersions on all Republicans or conservatives, but they should be on notice. If you find some nutcase or asshole liberal acting like a dipshit, and insinuate that the moron reflects upon all liberals, I'll be pointing you back to Republican Congressional candidate Tony Zirkle.

    And I will be reminding you of a certain Congressman from New Orleans that thinks bribing people is part of his power AS an already elected and REELECTED Congressman. And to the Democrats NON credit, they rallied round him, tried to promote him and defended him.

    I was laughing at the comments but then I thought there have been times I met people who seemed on the surface normal, friendly, well adjusted, and then off the wall they tell me their particular hate. Humans are weird people.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. There's hyprocrisy on both sides (Rick Renzi). One corrupt individual wipes away the entire systemic organized fraud of the K Street Project and the Tom Delay/Jack Abramoff crime syndicate.

    No one tried to promote Jefferson. Indeed, Democrats removed him from the tax committee and the Ways and Means Committee, both of them bribe magnets.

    I suggest you recheck your facts Pelosi DID in fact want to promote him.
