Lautenberg violated election laws to return to the Senate, where he has been a zombie for years.
We can mourn the death of the man while celebrating the departure of a radical leftist from the Senate.

If Christie appoints anyone but a Democrat to replace Lautenberg, he may as well forget about running in 2016, he'll have lost my vote.
I think whomever dies in office should be replaced by a member of the same party.
Here's hoping Christie does the honorable thing.
Homer will vote for Hillary anyway, even if she isn't on the ticket.

Strike three for Christie if he appoints a Democrat.

You are very welcome on last night :)
Seems the deeper this administration digs itself, the deeper they keep digging.

They have to think they're above it all. No other explanation.

Just like Holder expecting the media to come before him and agree with his guidelines on how to report his lies with everything he said being off the record.

I thought the world had stopped spinning when the New York Times stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Fox News in declining his "royal" invitation.

<quoted text>Gang bangers in Chicago are advised that it is against the law to carry a gun because it is illegal. 20 some blacks shot over the weekend, 10 blacks killed-are Jesse Jackass and Al Sharpton busy this week?
Drug dealers and murderers are hardly concerned about gun laws.

Gun laws in places like Chicago and New York are designed to make life easier for criminals.

So you're claiming bushie boy LIED to America and the world about going into iraq then?

We already knew that son.

But now your claim is he was pushing Clinton's agenda and therefore it was Clinton's fault?

Homer would make an excellent juror, as well as a mind reader.

This case will be decided during jury selection.

The evidence is irrelevant.

Only race matters.

She'll be on the ticket and the favorite to win.

You will forgive and forget, just like you are forgiving him for working with Obama, I've read your most recent spin. Just look at the last two knuckleheads you all have nominated.

The general public will not be as forgiving if he does not do the honorable thing.

Meet the journalism professor who says NRA members are treasonous, should be executed

In a bizarre op-ed in The Charleston Gazette last week, journalism professor Christopher Swindell argued that the National Rifle Association “advocates armed rebellion against the duly elected government of the United States of America.”

Stirring words, to be sure, but Swindell was hardly done — not even close. He also said that the NRA is guilty of “treason”“worthy of the firing squad.”

I hope his employer and the authorities recognize the warning signs of someone about to become completely unhinged. If we're really concerned about preventing mass murders, someone will get him a psych eval, stat.
