McCain lost my support (and the election) when he suspended his campaign and voted for TARP.

There will eventually be separate special prosecutors for each scandal.
But that will put the news about the scandals underground for awhile. I like seeing it in the public for a few more months like about a year or so.

Good point, although Congress can still hold hearings if they choose.

Who would have thought being bitten by a turtle is such a problem that we need a special code for it?
The courts will be tied up with lawyers arguing over the extent of the bite, the exact species of the turtle, the psychological damages to their client and the monetary compensation their client should be entitled to.

The next group of lawyers will be waiting in line apparently to argue the thickness and height of a pole their client ran into.

If this weren't reality and so unbelievable, it would be hilarious as an SNL skit.

So maybe you can tell me. Why does the left find bureaucracy hand-in-hand with a morbidly obese government so desirable again?

YOU cross the line. You let your temper control you and you went TOO far. I hope TOPIX finds your comment so offensive that they ban your IPS so we will be rid of YOU and all your socks.
Would you like some cheese to go with your incessant WHINING??

I enjoy your selective outrage. Funny you never comment on the foul language used by Fenris, Ed, Shining.

Bit of a double standard here, I see.

Note I didn't use a single foul word in my reply to Lorac. I merely took her comment to Homer and turned it back on her. You just have a perverted mind.

It shut her up for awhile, too.

Continue your whining, little miss.

Exactly what I said earlier. SNL is running out of steam as political parody cannot compete with the current political reality.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) now disapprove.

Have to disagree. I do want anyone to suffer the loss of a loved one to one of those savages.
There was some good news those the sicko who raped and murdered a 10 year old in Florida in 1990 was finally put out of his misery. He had been convicted of sex crimes against minors before he murdered the little girl.

Perhaps the problem is cons need to figure out the new technology first before being able to criticize it. I don't think they've figured out a teleprompter yet!

You're a sick little fraud, lady. Whine like a frightened kitten when a liberal makes a comment, ignore it when a wingnut does the same.

Autombile consumers, not voters.
California motorists buy a significantly higher percentage of foreign cars than the rest of the country, probably because they drive a lot of miles and need efficient and dependable cars.
They're either smarter or they're not.

From PA, you can't tell either, but if they're savvy consumers, it goes without saying that they'd be savvy voters.

Your ignorance leads you to make really stupid observations.

Lawyer: Zimmerman Prosecutor Withheld Evidence

By KYLE HIGHTOWER
Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla.-- A court employee who retrieved photos and deleted text messages from Trayvon Martin's cellphone has been placed on administrative leave after an attorney testified that prosecutors didn't properly turn over the evidence to the defense, an attorney said Wednesday.

Former prosecutor Wesley White said he was ethically obligated to reveal that Fourth Judicial Circuit Information Technology Director Ben Kruidbos retrieved the data that weren't turned over.

Kruidbos was placed on leave shortly after White testified during a hearing in George Zimmerman's second-degree murder case on Tuesday. White said Kruidbos was interviewed by state attorney investigators twice before the action was taken.

White said he wasn't surprised of possible evidence violations by Zimmerman prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda.

"I was saddened by it, but I'm not surprised," he said.

White first learned about the evidence through Kruidbos more than a month ago, he said.

Phone and email messages left at the office of Fourth Judicial Circuit State Attorney Angela Corey were not immediately returned.
