Do you have any data to validate that women were going to vote for Akin as 'president', or that women from Missouri were not going to vote for him, or that something has changed since the Democratic National Committee was spouting off about women not voting for a Republican months ago? Or are you just a paid socialist lapdog who consumes the Young Turks dogma orally-hook, line, and sinker?

It’s interesting that you believe you saw a photo of Anthony’s Wiener, but what you actually saw was a photo of his briefs. Gay panic can have that effect.
Don't insult our intelligence. Everyone knows Wiener showed his wennie to the public. Clinton dribbled down a young female ade's dress. Ted Kennedy performed an abortion on one of his secretaries, with fatal results for both mother and fetus, will take a late night swin in Chappaquidick Bay. And then there was wonder governer from Illadnausium who tried to sell a senate seat, even got fired from Celebrity Apprentice, and is now sharing his affections with federal inmates.

No gay panic here.

I’m not the one who’s insulting your intelligence.

By the way, check your facts (and spelling), especially about fascination with Anthony’s Wiener and your Kennedy abortion theory.

Oh geeze! Another grammer cop with a GED diploma.

Don't need to check facts about either one. I have an opinion, and I execised my right to post it. Don't like my posting, or my grammer, eat your shorts and die. You can make it easier on yourself by not eating your shorts,(gag), and just ignore my shortcomings by just going away.

Either way, shorts eating or leaving the building, will work for me.

I never said that he wasn't, nor did I say that I agree with him -- which I do not. I am just pointing out that a lot of people believe what Akin said is true because they have heard it from somebody that speaks with the voice of what they think is scientific authority.

I did some research, and the guy that I heard on TV was probably one Dr. John C. Willke, MD. He has written books that are very popular with the anti-abortion people, and a lot of them take what he says as scientific fact.

Eat my shorts and die? Is that an insult in your neck of the woods?

You chose to respond to one of my posts not directed to you. You disagree with me and you’re angry.

You’re insulting your intelligence. Or perhaps not.

I'm just me ass-wipe. Obviously you don't like that either. And if you think my post is a little wimpish on the insult meter, just say so and I'll retool to how you want to be really insulted.

Go back and read the posts bonehead. Who responded to who will surprize ya.

I am not posting a defense for Jimbo, he does okay on his own. But when you bring up the Constitution/abortion ommission issue, I can't sit still on you post.
The U.S. Constituiotn was being drafted in the late 1770's and ratified in the early 1780's. Now listen very carefully. You would be hanged, drawn, and quartered for even suggesting that a woman abort a pregnancy during that historical time frame. And even if a woman wanted to abort a pregnancy, the medical science was not up to going there-the clash between church and science would have been humongus. But the plain fact is, the early American society was not disposed to aborting babies-it flew in the face of religious beliefs and would have been considered socially criminal.
The abortion issue of today is a product of the late 20th. century, and the last amendment to the Constitution was 60 years ago.
So if you want to know why abortion is not in the Law of the Land, it's because women back in those days took a personal responsib-ility for screwing up, or the punishment for another's misdeed-and those woman took it like a man, not a spoliled, defiant, little femininist, who got brave with burning the bra and protesting every little thing with a bitchy whinning.
In conclusion, the thought of killing an unborn child just out of "whim", as one of the many sorry pro-abortion posters has posted as sufficient reason for an abortion, was unthinkable, ungodly, and hateful.
You do what you want with your individual choice about you and your wife, but quit bashing us pro-lifers and Christians just because we love children and are going to cling to that traditon of loving and protecting them.

What a guy! Thanks for the heads up, Morgana. I’ve added his name to my don’t-waste-my-time-and-energy list of the terminally incorrigible.

Besides, we’re all much to busy to bicker mindlessly with a single unreasonable person. Not with the whole mother “ship load” of ominous folk coming right up in only two days! That’s right — RapepublicanFest2012 promises to be every bit as entertaining as their primary debates, even though many of its faded stars will be conspicuously absent as GOP “leadership” struggles to balance its venue with participants acceptable to both factions, including the Homo Sapiens minority that fears scaring off any independents who may be watching.

Should we provide wall-to-wall (sledge hammer to sledge hammer) coverage of RapepublicanFest2012 “highlights” as they occur fast and furious?

Yep RapepublicanFest2012 should prove to be entertaining!

How is that hurricane doing?

If it hits I wonder how they will justify this act of god?

Will they see themselves as sinners?

Will they blame the devil?

Will they blame the liberals, gays and feminists?

Stay tuned as RapepublicanFest2012 Turns!!:0)

So you say.

Hopefully the people that "you say" are flocking there are all the religious nut cases so we can confine them to one state and throw them out of the union. That would be nice.

Interestingly we had a group of Texans move here and buy a large piece of property that they made into a large camp group and trailer park. They were infiltrated and busted for mass production of Meth, they went back to Texas. We don't miss them at all.

I'm sure there are quite a few decent people who live in Texas. Unfortunately, the religionist kooks who seem to hate the fact that WOMEN have rights and exercise them outnumber the decent folks.

How disappointing!

“DT’s Big Surprise” that had recently been rescheduled to the Monday evening slot when there would be no major network coverage, has now been scratched entirely because of Isaac even though it thankfully missed Tampa. Tough luck, huh Donald? And you had promised it was going to be “really big,” as is his custom when promoting all things Trump.

Those not scheduled include Sarah Palin and primary debates circuit favorites Bachmann and Perry. Oh well, it may still be entertaining to watch the major thrust to rebrand Mitt Romney as human, so to speak, through soft interviews by sympathetic “news” professionals.

I’m still pulling for Palin to crash the party somehow. Maybe she could drive her bus through the entrance gate. It would be unlike her to allow herself be ignored or go unnoticed. She’s a grizzly mom, a maverick, a publicity hound, not a withering rose. Come on, Sarah — we’re countin’ on ya’.
