    To me, spiritualism and belief in the healing powers of pretty rocks are grounds for suspecting intellectual capacity. But if you put away silly 20 years ago, then it is less of a big deal.

    If you did stupid as a teenager in terms of felony, that is cause for greater concern, but lots of folks do stupid and grow out of it.

    Talking to dead people at age 50 is not the same at goofing around with candles and halloween masks at 16.

    So are there any loose and slippery definitions of what constitutes something discuss worthy from 20 years ago. Hard and fast is going to be impossible

    WEll if your not running for public office then normally what you did 20 years ago wouldn't matter a hill of beans.

    However, if you are running for public office then anything and everything you did from the time you got out of diapers seems to appear important.

    There will always be someone out there ready, willing and able to put your whole life on public display.

    Unless, of course, you name is Obama. LOL

    Excuse me? Obama's entire life has been dissected over and over again. They're still discussing where he was born, for heaven's sake.

    Apparently Playing on a Ouija Board is and Being a member of the KKK is not. According to the left it would seem.

    I wasn't real sure what you were talking about until I read a couple of comments. You're probably referring to Ms. O'Donnell's dabble in witchcraft. I also think it's silly to imagine that she continues that practice. On the other hand, it's equally as silly to believe that because Obama admitted to dabbling in marijuana and cocaine a long time ago that he's a "coke head" now (as many accuse him of being, among other selective silly lies).

    It really pisses me off that MSM runs with these moronic stories to the near exclusion of real news. I couldn't care less what O'Donnell did in her formative years.

    What main stream Right leaning news has given any significant coverage to Obama's former drug use, or called him a crack head?

    For that matter who really brings it up here? I do see it happening all the much.

    That's another fave of a few websites. However, how can Obama be the Anti-Christ (who is defined as a smooth-talking person who will bring ALL people to his side), when his popularity has been dropping about 5 points a month?
