    No matter how many idiot presidents/politicans we have there's always someone who takes their side. does that ole say "You can fool most of the people most of the time" ring true?

    The saying goes "You can fool some of the people, all of the time or all of the people some of the time. But not all of the people, all of the time."

    I think it's more like cheering for the home team no matter how sucky they play.

    our identities become wrapped up so much in our political beliefs and candidates that we refuse to accept their actual failures. by doing that then we admit we ourselves are wrong, and thats one of the hardest things to do as a human being.

    If that's true for you, then you are admitting that you're a fucking idiot.

    Because she is a Tea Bagger and hates the fact that people are actually trying to vet loons like Angle and O'Donnell.

    Obama, according to you -- an idiot, became POTUS.

    What did you, a non-idiot, become?

    Something you're eminently familiar with.

    It's like Barney Frank admitted recently in an interview: He opposed some pieces of legislation not because they were necessarily bad but simply because Republicans supported them. He figured if Republicans supported them they had to be bad.
