“I'm shocked that this was even an issue. This is the first thing I would have thought they would order. Hell, I'd order it. AlQaeda did this? You know where they are? Surgically strike and take them out. If that or what we have now, I"ll take that.”
“Sine when does the word "amazing" imply "something never seen before." The overreaction to these photos is amazing (by which I mean wondrous or astonishing, neither of which imply "never before seen").”
“It's a blocking move, as in chess. Dropping these docs prevents McCain from using this tactic. Believe me, there will be no rift between Clinton and Obama. The docs were leaked on purpose. I wouldn't be surprised if Hillary gave him the docs herfeslf.”

“Why would she give anyone docs that so strongly suggest that she isn't ready to lead? On day one.”
“"How could a woman do this? As doctoral student Lindesy O'Rourke argued in her New York Times op-ed last weekend, women appear to have the same motivations as their male counterparts--"
And she's right. Why ask a question about one's motivation, receive the answer from that person, only to dismiss it and offer a more alluring theory? Oh, that's right (doctoral student).
Here's how a woman, or a man, can, and will continue to do this:
"Do you understand you will become a human bomb?" Menake was asked by the Black Tiger leaders in her interview.
"I told them that I did," she says. "I felt I had no other choice." The LTTE calls its suicide missions thatkodai, Tamil for "gift of self." It made her feel, Menake says, that her life still had a purpose."
To ensure that their life has a purpose. Some become journalists, seeking to inform and foster debate. This is helpful, even necessary in a free society. Doing this job gives her the sense that her life has purpose. Some, on the other extreme, blow up abortion clinics, or get into a car and drive into a crow of Israelis. In every case, the motivation is to feel as if one's life has purpose.”
“Why isn't this guy being referred to as a terrorist? Eric Rudolph has similar aims. This guy is a fundamentalist, his actions were in furtherance of a religious ideology and he used the terror cause by his actions as his message and secondary weapon. Christians can be terrorists too.”
“It hits hard because not too long ago he had the audacity to blame the condition of the economy on Democrats and their policies. Here we seen him admitting that business, investors, Wall Street, banks, etc, "got drunk" and acted irresponsibly leading us to where we are today. He and his kind have been pointing fingers everywhere else, but here the finger quarely point toward Wall Street and it's unregulated greed.”

“Wall street "got drunk", but who has been the bartender for the past 7 years?”
