"mistaken" liberal politicians are a dime a dozen! To replace Ted you have to commit murder, pass along at least one STD and fall down the steps at the Red Lion Inn.

If you're against the death penalty for moral reasons Martha, I assume you are against abortion for the same reason? Ha. What a weasel - and she hasn't made her mind up on the war either - waiting for the great leader to make his strategy known - overall a profile in courage befitting the legacy of our fallen wind-bag Senator.

If she is against the death penalty I will not vote for on that alone. We need this penalty to help empty our prisions of them rotten bastards that deserve it. I say fry the S>O>B>sBring back hanging and the elec. chair that is what they deserve.

No death penalty. Prosecutors and judges are people and people make mistakes. She's learned that.

I think given some work she could live up to that lofty standard - it's easy, just say yes to every tax, regulation and mandate
