What most of you aren't seeing/hearing/reading is that the bumb got the boot! On the other hand,I never heard anyone slamming John Edwards, who is one of the most sleasy politicians ever! And he could have been second in command. Lordy! Oh yeah, I forgot about Clinton. It just goes to show you, don't cast stones, because they are awfully painful coming back at you!

Who cares about the strip club...a true conservative would say "that is their personal business".

The challenge is that they wrote it off as a political expense. That should be a criminal charge. And then go through the books of BOTH parties to clean up such crap.

Possibly now the lesson of "Pride goeth before destruction; a haughty spirit before the fall" can come into full view.

So first they reimburse him for the strip club expense....AND THEN...fire him after the media reports it. Love those principles.
It certainly isn't fair to steal neo prog tactics right out in broad daylight. How's Charlie Rangel doing?

You didn't? Have you been in a cave? No one has seen or heard from Edwards since.

Except it would never occur because Liberals wouldn't need an expense account. We are better looking and better endowed and NEVER have to pay!
Besides, we don't hold ourselves up as holier than thou, we embrace waving our freak flags - I gotta go, I just came out to the kitchen because we ran out of peeled grapes for our socialist orgy.

Who says liberals don't live fantasy land? The difference of note is that he was fired, as he should of been. There are bad apples in both parties, but we don't abide them, we villify or fire 'em! Take Larry Craig, etc.. Democrats make them the heads of influential, congressional comittees. Kennedy, Rangel, Frank etc.

crusoe, your post shows how delusional truly you are!

I am amused at the irony that you showed that you were holier than thou by claiming you are not holier than thou.

Lots of liberals need to pay, as we know that barney frank's lover was running male prostitution service out of their house.


I can't really speak for whether liberal men are better looking, but take hilary clinton and sarah palin, and that is just the tip of the iceberg... ;)

This republican activist has not recieved the message yet from America.. Republicans are on as thin ice along with the Democrats.

Especially small r republicans that have no respect for the citizens or even their own reputation, so hit the road Jack and dont come back
