    heh... yeah, i think so. I also find it really funny that the president can be an ex coke freak who is a dry drunk and was arrested for DWI when he was 40, but Obama is a "commie" because when he was in college, different ideas appealed to him (as if that wasn't the case for most people in college... well, except maybe Bob Jones U.)

    Obama's casual link 30 years ago to someone (Davis) who was a member of an "anti-American" organization (the CPUSA) is no more relevant than Sara Palin's current intimate link to someone (her husband) who was a member until 2002 of an "anti-American" organization (the AIP). (Pointing out the links is not attacking unless you absurdly insist that such links mean that the candidates themselves are "anti-American" BECAUSE of the links.) What's good for the goose is good for the gander, especially when Palin's link to a "subversive" is both stronger and more current than Obama's.

    Yeah, we don't want to bother anyone by letting them know that the formation of Obama's entire philosophy comes from his lifelong relationships with a long string of communists, extremists and domestic terrorists, do we? Or what that means for a nation that does not share his leftwing extremism. YAWN.....

    But WOW Palin's husband once got a DWI more than 20 years ago -now THAT is so darn important to know about a candidate that it should be discussed for at least two weeks, isn't it? ROFL

    It probably wouldn't mean much if it were the only one of its kind. Obama's problem -it isn't.
