Hey Bill,

Another biased slant again I see. Why not show how the so called "left" or DNC is just as bad as the so called "right" RNC?

Thinking offense is the best defense, Leftists try to skewer reality with another dopey assessment. When they have changed, or tried to eliminate 1/3 of the words in our dictionaries with their atheistic secularism, they think people are too stupid to realize it is the Left, who's changed even the meaning of human life itself. You can't get more offensive than that.

Slight of hand... look over there... don't pay attention to the man behind the curtain...

No, it's not that. I am calling a spade a spade here. I am a political atheist and refuse to succumb to someone's political god.

However, if your going to go after so called "conservatives" and being a form of "media". Then you should be not be biased and do the exact same thing to so called "liberals".

Quick!!! Alert!! Alert!!!!!

Someone call the EPA. I just heard on the news there's a substance all over the earth that causes death to nearly 200,000 children, and around one million total per year. We must rid ourselves of this threat called dihydro-monoxide. Start a petition drive now to ban this killer, this horrible, horrible substance.

Anyone who doesn't think there's extensive and harshly-enforced Rightie political correctness doesn't have their eyes open. They have many, many proscribed words and phrases, and many required ones which must be used toward (or rather, against) liberals and Democrats.

Which is why it's funny when a Rightie babbles about "political correctness." Pot, meet kettle! LOL

Another Rightie dimbulb who doesn't get the point.

The article shows that you who claim others are "biased" are yourselves just as biased, and that you have your OWN political correctness, even though you accuse the left of it.

Duh!:)
