This is what I said:

"These guys have as much of a chance at winning an election as Jerry Springer has for attracting a crowd!!!

Oh, come to think of it, Springer ALWAYS seems to attract very emotionally passionate crowds ... "

Therefore: Sex-scarred pols ARE as popular as Springer and his gang of followers.

True in some cases. However, smaller government and less taxes means less money stolen from the public to buy votes, support of the rich and corporations. I'll take the lesser thieves over the really big ones.
There's no doubt that both parties have been spending us into bankruptcy for years. But voting for the worst offenders with the craziest spending delusions is foolish. The Democrats have already spent your grandkid's money. Vote for them and they'll spend the grandkid's grandkid's money too! They don't even pretend they'll do otherwise.
At least the Republicans acknowledge our spending has gone insane.
The Republicans should acknowledge it since they
are the biggest budget busters in the history
of the country.

Larry Sinclair said it?

Sinclair was offered $100,000 to take a polygraph and pass
it to prove that he was telling the truth about Obama.

He failed the polygraph.

He's a liar and you're stupid enough to believe every word.

Vera Baker is a former Barack Obama campaign worker who is rumored to have had an affair with Obama during his 2004 Senate campaign. Although it was rumored that Michelle Obama demanded that Baker leave, Baker maintains that she moved to the Caribbean because she fell in love with a man who lived there.1 Prior to working on the Senatorial campaign, Baker worked for the Alta Capital Group, Baker-Wambu & Associates, and as the Deputy Political Director for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

The rumors that originally surfaced in 2008 were attributed by some to be part of a smear campaign organized by rival Hillary Clinton supporters.1 The story resurfaced in 2009 when author Christopher Andersen published Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage'.' In the book, Andersen alleges that a "jealous" Michelle Obama "had engineered Baker's departure" from the campaign.2

On April 30, 2010, the National Enquirer released details of an interview with a limo driver who alleges he dropped Obama and Baker off at Obama's hotel at the end of an evening. The driver stated that to the best of his knowledge, Baker did not have a room at the hotel. According to the driver, at about 10:30 PM, he drove them to the hotel and they went in together and that there was no indication she was going to leave the hotel that night."3 The Enquirer article mentions that it attempted to acquire the hotel's surveillance video to validate the driver's allegations.4

Rumors, smears, and slander aren't evidence. I'll assume you haven't got any real evidence, then.

To bad the same thinking was not there when all of the tea party candidates ran in 2010. Destroyed by both progressives and establishment repubs in both the media and political circles alike before the primary and general elections. Over 300 million people and the same odor approved with the stamp of approval by our masters. Born and bred for the elitist agenda or fast tracked if no waves made.

As Bush proves every time he charges $100-150,000 per speech, which has made him over $15 million to date.

Lying and killing people were two of Bush's few strengths.
