    a slanted piece taking many statements out of context.....

    a piece that is humorous, perhaps, to those on the right, but one which does very little toward illuminating the issues in the very important debate that faces us.

    it was kinda like watching a piece on George Bush from the Daily Show

    actually...everyone should listen to the entire debate and then listen to the entire republican debate and the next debate and the debate after that - both democrats and republicans...listen to every word of every debate they can find on their TV dials...and drive to attend debates that are within driving range of their homes.... and then, and only then, determine who amongst those men and women debating is the best qualified to lead us.

    Humorous? I don't find anything humorous about those pissant answers.....excuse me, nonanswers. It could be funny if there wasn't a chance of any of these dimwits getting elected, unfortunately November showed that the American public is susceptible to the bullshit all of these clowns stand for, that is scary.

    I can think of plenty of people who are laughing but none live in this country and all have a sworn hatred for us.

    Standard response for the liberal wimp from Maine

    Everytime his lib buds are nailed with what they actually say, he whines how the statements were taken out of context, or the source is slanted

    I knoew on election night once the Dems won power back, they would fuck it up and let their arrogrance rule and be seen in the light of day

    08 is going to be the Dems Waterloo

    I would think the argument that the source is slanted would be rather irrelevant. After all the source of the statement is the individual who is being asked the questions, right? Isn't anyone responding with that argument just insulting themselves?

    As for the statement being taken out of context, I freely admit that happens to people from time to time. Sometimes the statements are purposely taken out of context to malign the individual. However, if that is indeed the case, wouldnt it be wise to explain the correct context of the statement and clarify what they meant when they made the statement rather than simply yell "Out of context!" or "Bias!" Wouldn't that be far more condusive to the marketplace of ideas.

    Anytime I post an article MM bellows how all I do is cut and paste

    A classic a few days ago was when I posted an article stating how two Sargents in Irzq were speaking out against the Dems.

    MM ignored what the troops say (he claims he supports them and respects them) but attacked me

    This is classic Clinton. Attack the messenger and ignore the message

    Look...I am sure that there are troops in Iraq who do not approve of the democrats. I also know for a fact that there are troops in Iraq who do heartily approve of the democrats. YOu post an article about two sergeants and what do you expect me to do? Change my mind about the war in Iraq because two sergeants are upset about my dissent, when I hear from many more over there that approve of it?

    And I don't just claim to respect and support them, I do...in real and tangible ways each and every week. I would bet a lot of money that I spend more time and do more to support our troops each and every week than you have done since the war started.

    Your entire response was to attack me for posting the statements

    Meanwhile you claim to support the troops while spinning and protecting the libs who have smeared and slandered them

    Strange support for the troops MM
