Oh no, that means he'll have a formidable challenger in Chief Executive Officer of World Wrestling Entertainment, Betty White!



She's got a LOT of good laughs left.

This is great news for the GOP, I'm glad they stuck with him. This now really puts Chris Dodds seat up for grabs, bigtime.

While we are condemning hypocrites lets add you to the list as you routinely come here defending corrupt Republicans.
You completely missed my point. If a Republican does something, anything, the media won't let it alone and usually he has to drop out or resign and his career is done. I don't count phony political accusations that can't be proven, only things the Republican either obviously did or admitted to. A Democrat survives unless he is actually incarcerated, and often comes right back after being released.(Alcee Hastings, Marion Barry, etc..) What Republican would survive his partner running a prostitution ring out of their apartment?(Barney Frank) This media coddling of the corrupt Democrats is why they are so corrupt.

Case in point...a democrat won the seat in PA 12 which was 2 to 1 democrat and the press was all over it. The Republicans won a seat in Hawaii that had been under democrat control for 30 years and there was no mention of it by the media.

Conservatives, if they haven't already done this, should cancel subscriptions to liberal newspapers and stop buying Time and Newsweek magazines. Conservatives are in the majority in this country and should boycott all liberal news sources.

I would like to actually see a Republic STAND UP and DO SOMETHING when something like this comes up. The reason that these FRUITCAKES get away with the things they say and do is that NOBODY ever says anything about the situation. Why do Republicans always say "IF A REPUBLICAN EVEN DARED DO yadda, yadda, yadda....just think of what would happen..........

Well then, why doesn't a Republican have the *alls to say "exactly the same thing" right after that and just see what "happens". I'll bet nothing would "happen". But these Republicans have NO GUTS, they are so WIMPY......they make me sick to my stomach.

War records don't matter all that much to me, it's the "People Record" that matters. Clinton lied a bit about Monica, then Bush lied A LOT, and every turn he could. Cheney and Bush never served, and they acted like the biggest war heros we've ever seen. I'll take the person or candidate that will stand up for the people, if there are any such candidates left out there.

Because the Republicans don't run the MSM. Rush talks about it, Levin talks about it...but the libs in the media won't and therefore Joe Average who doesn't follow politics never hears about it..unlike how they hear every last thing about Republicans.

Democrats blame talk radio, Fox news, Christainity, any thing but their own stupidity for a lack of interest in their beliefs. They have to self sponcer their news shows, because they cannot hold onto viewers, and listeners. They are pitiful, and its never their fault.

In your own mind, you destroyed my credibility.:) And I really don't need radio talk show hosts to tell me that liberalism doesn't work, I can figure that out for myself through reading history and observing current events. Why can't you?:)

"I really don't need radio talk show hosts to tell me that liberalism doesn't work"\

Yet you repeatedly repeat their talking points. These are propaganda artists just as is Obermann and Moore. YOu follow them, you regurgitate them and you don't want to admit it but you get your information and views from them. Other wise you wouldn't be emulating them. You are a follower. Claiming you think for yourself is a joke.

Don't forget that they sent his drunken father back to the Senate several times as well.
