    I've never looked at this "site" before, but the quote is direct, though the context of the conversation that prompted the response is unclear. Either way, Townsend should have known better, particularly as it was not an off the cuff comment, but a written post in which he had the opportunity to choose his words.

    Never ceases to amaze me how, being cognizant of the world in which we now live, a supposedly relatively savvy political operator can stick his foot in has mouth with such unerring accuracy.

    Those kinds of comments aren't "mistakes". The Republican Party has become a sick party full of hate and anger.
    From the Republican debates:
    Let him die
    Applauding executions
    Education is for snobs
    Fire janitors and replace them with poor black kids because they don't know how to work

    A sick and dirty party. Stupid as fuck and they have no realistic or thoughtful ideas. They are desperately hoping they can bribe rich people into "saving them". Like Mitt says about the housing market, "It will have to hit bottom before it can recover". The Republican Party hasn't yet "hit bottom", but it's close. Hopefully it won't drag down the rest on the country with it. But I'm afraid that might be too late.

    I haven't looked but I might be willing to bet that TDM has started at least four.

    Yes there have... but yours is the only one with the intellect to ask about the full context of the quote.... the rest just went for Full Retard Faux Outrage.

    I started one, Conservative let loose with a string of obscenities. I have never complained to the Moderators, so I do not know how to contact them, thus, the title remained the same. Rep. Hayworth says he was joking, by the way.

    Who cares?

    Only the hyper-partisn nutters even bother to post up such drivel.........as if it is going to benefit them in the bigger picture.

    The economy blows...........'nuff said.
