Reminds me of an old W.C. Fields movie, "Man on the Flying Trapeze, where he played Wolfinger, a memory expert. When his boss is about to meet a client, he relies on Wolfinger to remind him of the client's details, wife and kids, etc.
"Well", advises Wolfinger, "He has two boys. One's a tennis player, the other one's a manly little fellow."

Democratic-Party is wrong. The U.S. must contract its domestic-demand. The U.S. must decrease trade-deficit.

Republican-Party is wrong. The U.S. must cut military-budget in order to cut expenditure and budget. Don't cut Americans. Tax the rich. Cut military-expenditure.

Both Party are wrong in some way.

Not if the president continues his no compromise stand! 37% may as well be 0% for him!

It's impossible to compromise with unreasonable fools.

Obama is expected to stand on Constitutional Principle and defend with his last breath the Democratic Process. Whether he's liked or not has absolutely nothing to do with defending all things American.

most people of that low intelligence are. such bigotry is almost always a sign of low intelligence.
Liberals love to imagine they are smart.

its easy to make a liberal smart.

give them rat poison, crack, any dope, dried peyote a toad

to lick, some cheap booze, and they will begin to babble

about their mental abilities. Most of them are harmless

but then, there are some however who truly belong in a

strait jacket. The tin foil bat crew loves phaggotry and

Marxism.

I don't know if McCain is really ashamed but he definitely is an embarrassment. He makes Americans feel stupid when he pretends to speak for them. In this case he's right but he's a buffoon to think he's taking some kind of earth shattering position. Even though 95% of Americans think this is the ultimate travesty, McCain still plays like he's invented the argument. He couldn't even beat Obama who is an even bigger jerk than him.
