It takes a Democrat ...

It takes a Democrat to clean up the messes the Republicans leave behind. In this case, the Republican controlled Bush Justice Dept. couldn't even prosecute a Republican without corruption and incompetence; http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/02/us/politics/02stevens.html?ref=washington

It took a Democratically controlled Justice Dept. to cry foul and stand up for what is right rather than what is politically expedient. I'm no fan of Stevens but this seems to be either a case of vindictive political backstabbing or just plain corruption and incompetence on a grand scale. Gonzo's Justice Dept. once again stupidly thought it wouldn't get caught or that, if caught, it was above the law of the land. Either way, it's what we came to expect from the Bushies and Gonzo.

Re: It takes a Democrat ...

I guess I have to take a note from YOUR playbook...

DU? Are they not a hate group? If I linked to the KKK you would rightfully note my source as a problem...why does DU get a pass?

Or you could make a comment saying you too are outraged at what Bush did to our justice system.

Oh, look! I made a funny!

They are not very fond of people who have the KKK website in their bookmarks, does that count? Does that include you?

Tell you what, complain to the moderators.

Re: It takes a Democrat ...

My question was valid...you linked to a hate group! Not a questionable news source like the Times or National Inguirer but an actual hate site...One that bans all dissenting views and removes all posts that do not toe the party line exactly like Stalin made folk disappear.

You could have linked the cartoon directly and avoided the hate site but you didn't, which says something.

Re: It takes a Democrat ...

That makes the Repubicans down ... let's see here ... 70,000 minus 12 ... uh, ... that makes the Republicans down a mere 69,988 voters.

Nice.

At this rate you guys will regain the House in about 2156.

Very nice!

Re: It takes a Democrat ...

Something that would say something about the election would be to compare it to the last Novembers election in the district...The democrat won that one...won it pretty solidly. This election shows a loss of support for the dems there. How big was that change? How big will the final win be...12, 100, 500, 1000. I suspect at least 500 votes.

Edited..I am sorry. I am writing about the NY special election here. I crossed threads. As I wrote in November, Frankin already stole the Minn Senate race so that issue is moot. The Alaska Senate race is also a done deal. One cannot put the egg back in the shell. Stevens lost, perhaps unfairly. There is nothing one can do about it now and the dem who won will serve the next 6 years.

But there are some good trends you can hold dear.

So you have no sense of shame either or regret concerning Bush's Judicial Dept either, eh? I knew I could count on you two.

You call that good news, eh, Commissar? Only someone standing up to their eyeballs in quicksand would look at those numbers and say, "We're not loosing ground as fast as before."

You think the DNC is a hate group.

Stereophile occasionally makes posts disappear. All web pages do. I suppose you'd prefer anarchy.

What am I saying?!

Of course you would, that's why you only operate in the Open Bar section of this forum.

I linked to the most direct spot where you could find the cartoon. That you saw "democratic underground" in the address bar and still you looked and now you're feigning outrage says quite a bit about you.

You really can't win, can you?

Let me reiterate...

The arguments Jan propounds are often elaborately structured and rely upon quotations either misconstrued, taken out of context, or from circumstances which are not subject to any existing law or no law at all.

I just want to apologize to the rest of the forum for purposely trolling Jan. I honestly did not believe he would fall of the edge to such a degree. He was obviously understating his radical element involvement over at Democratic Underground. I'm referring to the very small totalitarian percentage of DU membership that control the entire exchange of ideas or rather lack thereof. Some have mislabeled him as a liberal. Jan is not a liberal. He hasn't a liberal bone in his body. Jan is an anarchist.
