“Please go back to your cave!!! You've no idea what you're talking about. You don't know his voting record or his principled positions on wide ranging issues. Don't even bother, you wouldn't even understand.”

“Look, I understand the Nader herd's penchant for baying at the moon and/or screaming at the rain. But if baying and screaming produces nothing, it just remains baying and screaming!!!
I know how the Nader-herd feels about the Clintons but Bill Clinton got a lot more achieved in his 8 year tenure than Kucinich can get done in a lifetime ... or even 2-3 lifetimes ......”
Sibel Edmonds, the FBI whistle-blower who has been gagged for years by the Bush administration over intercepts she translated while at the bureau, was willing to go to prison to get her story told. She spent years trying to get her day in court, but the State Secrets gag against her prohibited her from telling her story even to a FISA judge. After years of trying to fight her way to through the maze of the US court system, Sibel Edmonds finally decided to tell her story no matter the consequences and offered to do so to any interested US media outlets.”

“If there was any truth in her allegations, it would be front page news. She was fired for doing a poor job, and now she's bitter about it. Dumb broad.”
“The truth is: All/most third party candidates got more votes in Florida than the difference between Bush and Gore. So it is ridiculous to suggest that Nader spoiled the election. And there are many more reasons why that argument is dubious at best.
“Watch PBS' "Unreasonable Man" that shows Ralph Nader is far from unreasonable. You'll find your original faith in him was definitely not misplaced. And he absolutely did not lose the election for Dems; the NeoCons lied and cheated.
“This is the ridiculous thing I've heard in recent times. I expect 'facts' in a newspaper not ravings of a lunatic. If Kristol's writings complete the picture for you, I'm ambivalent whether to express my disgust or pity for you.”

“Actually, what I expect on the opinion pages is opinion. Even the opinions of those I don't agree with. Even, sometimes, the raving of lunatics. Kristol's arguments crumble once they are out of the neocon echo chamber. The Times hasn't just given him a column--they've given him enough rope with which to hang himself.”

“Please cite any references before you slander someone of his stature. Of course, he may not be the best family man out there but accusing him of destroying his family is plain ridiculous. He dedicated his entire life for the cause of his country and peace. Have a little respect and try to understand his message. Criticizing his personal life only reflects on your narrow perspective.”

“By current usage I think I'm being a little picky on slander vs libel, so I retract that bit of gratouitous sarcasm.
I guess in this case you're rubber and I'm glue.”

“Try to understand I don't care about his message. When you bring children in the world that's your responsibility. That is my narrow perspective. So I guess you're right. But then, what's that to you?
BTW, you're switching context. Whether he destroyed his family has nothing to do with how great his message was.
I wouldn't have bothered, but it's irritating when people go ga-ga over idols with feet of clay.

“I regret to inform you that it would take a lot of time and effort for someone like you to realize the power and significance of peace. The last biggest(British) empire collapsed because of a peaceful independence struggle.
War may look like a short term solution but peace is the ultimate solution and those who do not understand that are bound to be discredited and forgotten in the course of history.”
“I can agree about Edwards and Obama, to an extent that they may be misconstrued. But Hillary, if she left any doubt about her plans for Iraq and troop withdrawal, it's not misinterpretation but deliberate strategy on her part. Frankly, can you envision a better Democratic equivalent for Dick Cheney?”

“I think that Hillary may still feel that invading Iraq was a good idea that went south because of an incompetent commander in chief. I have no hard proof of this, it's just my own conclusion after reading extensively. It worries me though, because I fear that she might think we should try a similar approach when confronted with a similar challenge, because she will see her own administration as much more competent than Bush II. And I think that the whole strategy - invading and controlling the weaker, non-nuclear countries before they become stronger - is not the right one.
But to suggest that Hillary wants to continue the disaster in Iraq now is inaccurate. We're out of money and troops, and the occupation is failing. HIllary, Edwards and Obama are all listening to the same groups of military personnel about how best to exit Iraq safely. Kucinich is not really taking substantial military advice on this issue to my knowledge. So he has a different approach.
But yes, Hillary's modis operende is to leave doubt.”
“I don't know which *Youth* you are talking about here. Any youngster will abhor the current administration, it's policies and subsequently the ideals (Hatred towards gays, Hispanics, Religious intolerance, Imperialistic agenda, Apathy towards science) of the current Republican party.
And you think they want someone to meet those loonies midway to form a consensus???”
“While you are talking about a third party, I'm still waiting to see a SECOND party after the recent cavein(s) by gutless spineless cowards on FISA, AG Confirmation, impeachment vote,........”

“Right ON! ...
Anyone wishing to view true bi-partisan cooperation need only to look at the support for the Nafta expansion into Peru.
Expect the legislation to be passed in the dead of night, probably this week, much like Cafta. Expect this to be followed by a congratulatory luncheon on K-Street for all.”
