“not being in MA, can someone give me an opinion of the debate that's as objective as possible ... and demonstrates how and why Warren won (if she did) ... Look, I hope she cleaned his clock, but we're all a bit jaded ... You know how good we all feel when a FOX News poll comes out heavily in Obama's favor?, I'm kinda looking for "that"
in analysis of the debate! Thanks people!”
“well stated ... one minor suggestion. The word democrat, used as an adjective is wrong. It's not by accident. A few years ago, a friend of mine got his hands on a GOP memo (not sure how, but he's been a longtime progressive ad/script writer) ... The theme of the memo (originated by none other than Rush Limbaugh) suggested using "democrat" without the -ic ... making the "crat" part close to "crap" ... When you read the following, notice the harshness ... "democrat policy" vs "democratic policy" ... The intention is to make the party name sound bad. It's subliminal, but it's insidious. Their lemming followers might be ignorant or stupid (or both), but the party leaders, handlers, media supporters are most certainly not. Please be sure to include this (at your discretion, whenever you inform our fellow democrat-IC, progressive, liberal associates friends & family etc.”

“Thanks - I was wondering how that happened. So, Limbaugh started it - I'm not surprised.
“I've been wondering WHEN someone the Kochs have already hurt (e.g. with poisoning water through gas fracking) does something drastic, such as what you mention, libwithaclue ... imho, prison time for the Kochs, for their crimes against humanity, would suffice. While I don't condone any violent action, retribution, etc., I wouldn't shed a tear either, if kharma came back to bit them on their ....”
“from one who was raised as a jew, and has since abandoned it - as more and more jews have aligned themselves with those (evangelicals, greedy corporate repubs, southern racists and bigots far and wide, for example) who've HATED them since time immemorial, I've again been reminded that my decision to abandon "the tribe" was warranted ...”

“Hey, take it easy, willya? Jeez.
You have apparently abandoned Orthodox Judaism. Or Ultra-Orthodox. Because I don't know a liberal Jew who doesn't actively stand against the groups you list and the hate and fear they spread.
So diss the Ultra-Orthodox if you like, but remember that the rest of us--Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist, and countless havurot--are so liberal we're hated as a part of the "far-left." We're the ones who stood by African-Americans in the Civil Rights Era, who agitated for unions, who are prominent among those campaigning for civil rights for LGBT, and who routinely marry LGBT couples in our synagogues.
And we're even kind of funny. (Jon Stewart? Lewis Black? They're members of your evil tribe, too, you know).”

“I could never understand how any Jew could be a support a political party, or organization, whose members believe all Jews are going straight to hell if they don't convert to Jesus.”

“didn't even realized you were gone. good riddens.”
“while your idea is noble, in reality, it cannot be done ... btw, Obama wouldn't need to do what you propose to win anyway ... Obama's a superior candidate, and a superior person who's facing Romney, an unprincipled man, who cares nothing for most of this country. I estimate a 5% national win and 322-347 electoral votes for Obama”
“if Rove was able to successfully use the birther nonsense to bring down Obama, you bet he'd do it ... He doesn't think it's nonsense, just a non-viable attack option ... the man (Rove) is the most unprincipled, disingenuous, and I'll say it EVIL repub to come across the pike in a generation ... you must ALL remember that his family bloodline has NAZI affiliation ... look it up ...”
“While it's good to be on the "winning team" (so long as Obama/Biden crosses the finish line first), Keith's comments have helped make this election cycle a LOT of fun .... I'm thoroughly enjoying this!!”
