That mothers and fathers demanding answers web site reeks of Golisano. Convenient how it is registered anonymously in Australia. Not much credibility if everyone wants to hide; makes you wonder what they are hiding themselves.

When you enter into politics you are opening your life to scrutiny... deal with it.
Bonehunter,

I agree 100%. Sad thing is that many people who would be superb in public office were pretty wild in their youth and beyond. Lots of sex, drugs, and rack n roll. They go into the private sector where their wild past doesn't matter. The only thing that matters in the private sector is your ability to deliver results. They didn't call Jack Welch of GE "Jack the Zipper" for nothing. Do you think the board of GE cared one bit about his dalliances when he was delivering results. Imagine a manager like that going into politics....less money....and have your private across the front page of every newspaper? Screw that....I'll take the money. I think that we need to start looking beyond cannabis smoking and who screwed who.

<quoted text>So let's just start something called the liberal "Horndog" Party . Where "anything goes" is the motto. Interns? well just get some hookers for that job which will keep them off the streets anyway.Remember a condom a day keeps the doctor away
Liberal Democrats just make up their own version of "the truth" as they go along.

We all remember expert liar Bill Clinton, "I didn't have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky."

I so agree... I don't care who the heck the President sleeps with, but fix the problems of the country. If sleeping around helps you think... go for it!

Judgment and character are very Important, you liberal scumbags. Maybe Obama should drink, smoke pot and snort coke in the Whitehouse.

Why not make it into a giant PIMP house and paint it black? Every Congressmen gets a whore.

As the son of the Muslim father, Senator Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law as it is universally understood. It makes no difference that, as Senator Obama has written, his father said he renounced his religion. Likewise, under Muslim law based on the Koran his mother’s Christian background is irrelevant.

Of course, as most Americans understand it, Senator Obama is not a Muslim. He chose to become a Christian, and indeed has written convincingly to explain how he arrived at his choice and how important his Christian faith is to him.

His conversion, however, was a crime in Muslim eyes; it is irtidad or ridda, usually translated from the Arabic as apostasy, but with connotations of rebellion and treason. Indeed, it is the worst of all crimes that a Muslim can commit, worse than murder (which the victim’s family may choose to forgive).

With few exceptions, the jurists of all Sunni and Shiite schools prescribe execution for all adults who leave the faith not under duress; the recommended punishment is beheading at the hands of a cleric, although in recent years there have been both stonings and hangings.(Some may point to cases in which lesser punishments were ordered as with some Egyptian intellectuals who have been punished for writings that were construed as apostasy but those were really instances of supposed heresy, not explicitly declared apostasy as in Senator Obama’s case.)

Obama is a joke being perperated by the liberal media and uppity,'white guilt' Hollywood elitist liberal scumbags. The joke will be on hard working, tax paying Americans.

This will prove just how stupid the American public really is and they willl have to suffer the consequences of their blatant ignorance.

You want immorality, Godlessness and socialism? You've got it Jan. 20th 2009.

Like Obama's pastor Rev Wrighsaid, "No, no, no, not God bless America. God DAMN America!"

The Planet of the Apes, coming to a country near you, real soon.

Bend over white man and squeal like a pig, becasue the black man is gonna give it to ya right up your ass.

Obama is a joke being perperated by the liberal media and uppity,'white guilt' Hollywood elitist liberal scumbags. The joke will be on hard working, tax paying Americans.

If the Bills don't start off strong in the first half, they will lose. Look for another miserable non playoff year for the Buffalo 'Butterknives' aka Sabres.

Look for a immoral, Godless, poor judgment inexperienced socilislt to be our next president. God help us.

O-BLAH-MA will ditch than phoney flag pin, wear a dishdasha and swear on the Koran to defeat our military in his Muslim land.

Remember the Twilight Zone and the episode "How to serve man?" Think about it, you stupid, stupid people.

What difference does it make if NY's highly paid part time legislaters are spending so much time drinking and fornicating on the taxpayers dime? With the three bumss in a back room form of state government there's no need for any of them to be doing anything else.

In career political 'ho language that is what call leadership.
