“BESIDES: What possible bearing on the campaign or election, or anything else, could it have? Do you really want to know what Chelsea THINKS (feels), about what her mother THOUGHT (felt), about her father's Oral Office Interview(s)? I mean, pl-eeeeeze, Chels was what -- ten(?) at the time? Does she even remember it? Did her mother talk to her about it? Then? Later? And how about Billy, has he discussed the matter with her? Will he? and if either of them do, will we then prosecute them for Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor? or worse, Kiddie-Porn???
Just WHAT the ---- do you want this kid to say? And more importantly, WHY???”

“Actually, Chelsea was 18 when the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke. She's 28. The scandal broke in 1998. I agree that it was probably rude and unnecessary to ask Chelsea about this, but she's certainly old enough that she doesn't require coddling from unpleasant questions. And the impeachment of her father for lying under oath was a pretty big deal, and one that she should expect to be asked about if she is putting herself out in the public spotlight of the campaign trail.”

“Chelsea is campaigning for Hillary only because she wants to get special favors and access for that hedge fund she works for. I bet she would get a big fat raise for all the insider trading tips she would get from SHILLARY.
“That's right; You Keep telling them to 'piss-off,' Chels. It IS NONE of their business. If they want to know so bad, let THEM balls-up and ask Hilary themselves. (Or Bill, but only if Hilary is there.) Because I know I would be telling them that if they asking me about MY parents sex life. EE-eeu-oooo.”
“NO MORE "RELIABLE SOURSES!!!" If you have the balls to say something to the press, at least have the balls to tell me your name. I have no reason what-so-ever to ever even listen to you, let alone BELIEVE you, IF I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE.”
“It's not a "Sexist" backlash; it is a TRUTH backlash. If she can't figure out how to tell the truth, she doesn't even deserve to be where she is, muchless in the white house. The last 7 1\2 years have shown us that, even if the last four administrations have not.”
“Just too many words -- millions of (bloody) words -- running around in her brain to keep them all straight. First she must learn how to use them, yeah? Get a grip, Hil; just because they come out of your mouth doesn't make them the truth. And if you want to shoot yourself, and your campaign, in the foot, that's fine, but don't split the ticket, you hear me. Because if McCain gets elected because of you, you will never be forgiven. Except by McCain, and his "Spiritual Advisor," Rev. Rod. Hell, next thing you know Parsley will be running for President.”
Leave Bloomberg in NYC. He is for too wishy-washy for anything else. Although he used to smoke pot, so he does have that going for him.
As for Romney: christ, it would be just another example of politicians that we have already said NO to, waiting around in line long enough, until they get the job anyway, "because he's been waiting so long, shouldn't we give him a chance?" Hell no. That's how got GB the !st. And Reagan... Nixon... These weens got to learn (as do the American people) that once we've said NO, that means NO; YOU'RE OUT OF HERE!
Besides: don't we have a vast number of other losers to choose from, without half of them loitering around, waiting for a stolen, or begged, chance at a another round?
Why yes we do.
Maybe we should have "Run Limits," like Term-Limits; you two trys at it, and if you fail, YOU FAIL!”
“I, for one, liked her answer; I wish I'd have thought of it. WHY? Because it IS none of the little #^@&er's business. In fact: it is none of Chelsea's business either, unless her mother chooses to MAKE it her business. Or ours. Or even Billy-boy's. It is Hilary's business alone how she "handles" the affair, or if she lets any of it be public.”

“but the question was did she think her mother is less credible.
what exactly is your point.
if my father cheated on my mother, its my business. its also my mothers. and anyone else who is directly affected.”
“And I do not beieve that he is a "war-hero." WHY? I know lots of guys who went to Vietnam. Most never came home. Because he was in a P.O.W. camp for 6 years? How does that make him a "HERO?" Don't get me wrong; I am glad he made it home, reasonably intact. I'm glad he survived Lyndon Johnson's stupid, dirty little war ("Domino-theory... eat me), and I'm glad he served, so I wouldn't have to. That is why we dropped the voting age, and the got rid of the Draft in the first place. But NONE of that makes him a HERO!!! I see no hole where his chest used to be for throwing himself on a grenade to save his buddies. I see NO prisoners he helped escape. I see no dead prison camp guards that killed in the night in order to escape. And while I was getting my head kicked in by the pigs in Det. and Chi. protesting that war, all I\we got from him when he did get home was "coward" yelled in my face. You may have had to face the North Vietnamese, and the Chinese, over there, Mr. McCain, but I had to face the cops, and government, in my own home town, and most cops back then were not afraid to nightstick your brains in, or shoot you in that back, a la Kent State, Ohio.”
“AN OPEN LETTER JOHN MCCAIN:
Dear Mr. McCain,
I would not have voted for at gunpoint, but now that you have claimed the alleged 'Rev.' Rod Parsley as your "spiritual advisor" I even write you off as a human being. I've seen this clown at work, and if he is a Christian -- really a Christian -- then I'm switching to Buddism. Really. Because this guy perverts the idea of Christianity. I said it about Bush ten years ago, SCREAMED it seven years ago, spell it out now about Parsley and McCain: these two men are to Christianity as bin Ladeen is to Islam.
Reverend Rod Parsley believes America was founded for no other reason than to destroy Islam. Since this is such an outlandish claim, I have to add for the record, that he is not kidding. Reverend Parsley says Islam is an "anti-Christ religion" brought down from a "demon spirit." Of course, we are in a war against all Muslims, including presumably Muslim-Americans. Buts since Parsley believes this is a Christian nation and that it should be run as a theocracy, he is not very concerned what Muslim-Americans think.
That's just great.
And John McCain says Reverend Rod Parsley is his "spiritual guide." .”

“That was a snarky, icky sweet, and puerile production. Best to view it without the sound track.
Really, Bob. I know we're all giddy to see the light at the end of the tunnel (01/20/09) but let's not lose grovel in the sandbox. B.O. is NOT the messiah....”
“And you can STOP making movies that try to get me all gung ho about the war in Iraq. I don't buy it. Never did. Never will. As a part of the enterment industry, I can tell you that for all their bullocks and bragidocio, they are almost as far into the pockets of the government as the military. Phony, lying, mooks, who are out for a buck. NOTHING MORE. Not one iota more.”
“Let's keep in mind, kiddies, that the Clinton's were "NIXON Democrats", and if anyone learned how to play the 'creep' game it was them. How do think Slick Willie got into the white house? By co-opting, and then outright stealing, from Bob Keary (remember him? didn't think so) the National Health Care issue. Then he and Hilary did dick about it, or for it. Played some chin music, then cried about congress for a while, then dropped it all together.
I knew she would shot herself in the foot, campaign-wise, but I did not think she\they would try to shoot the party in the foot. Sorry Hilary, but you've lost me, by resorting to shitty politics, lying, and over-inflating your own importance, not only in your husband's presidency, but in the world in general. Besides: the G.O.P. WANTS to fight Hilary in the fall, and not Obama, therefore I give them Obama. NEVER GIVE YOUR ENEMY THE WAR HE WANTS.”

“Actually thinking about Health Care. It was political cowardice not to go after Universal Health Care in the second term of Bill's presidency. Instead he went for a right leaning agenda on NAFTA and punitive welfare reform lock step with the Republicans. Hillary has kept up that right wing agenda with Iraq, Iran and punitive bankruptcy law that hurts people's ability to keep their homes. Now she wants to push right wing tort reforms in the guise of say it will help homeowners. Give me a break this woman is more Republican than McCain.”
“All that means is that McCain, like Bush and Cheney, is a deaf, idiot, with no cognitive process going on AT ALL. It all means that he is a bloodthirsty ghoul, who thrives, and survives, on the blood of other peoples children.”
“FULLY MORPHED just in time for the 21st.Century (where ARE my flying cars?), it is now The Military-Industrial-ENTERTAINMENT Complex. So much for people, especially of my own age, roughly, that I used to admire, marginally, being a voice. Proof: give'em money (humans) and they will absolutely anything.”

“Yeah. The numbers of books she sold are a strict figment of some media dolt's imagination.
And the numbers on her movies are a fiction as well.
And her publicity and money? All totally made up.
In fact, those books probably do not even exist.”

“WHY ARE YOU GUYS (Newsweek, et.al.) TRYING TO PICK GNAT SHIT OUT OF PEPPER???
You got nothing else to report on? How about McCain's "Spiritual Advisor" one Mr. ROD PARSLEY??? Come on, Newsweek; gives us some news we can use. And if you're incapable of that, at least give us some NEWS!!!
That's an order, son.”

“This is like so many other articles being publised about Obama lately....a waste of space. It seems as if Clinton and her supporters are out of gas, and are trying their best to instill doubt in our minds that Obama is the best candidate for the job. Its a sad situation when you have to search for illigitimate dirt on your competition, rather than informing the public as to what would make us vote for you.... but thats politics for ya. Scrape up dirt on the opposing candidate to make people question their own judgement. This is yet another sad excuse for Obama bashing, just like the articles about his relationship/association with Rezko, and Rev. Wright. He has done an outstanding job at defending his position in each of those relationships, as Im sure he will put people in their place relating to this nonsense as well.
SaddieMccall.... Well stated! I completely agree”
“NOW THIS GUY... is one of the biggest of the big-mouthed, fools to ever come down the tracks. Really. In the tradition of Brother Jim Bakker, Jerry 'Foulmouth-well,' and Reverand IKE, comes Rod Parsley -- sure.... I do try to give all the new "TV holy men' at least one listen, because let's face it: the basic Christian Tenents are sound and good, and some people are better at expounding on that then other. But, come'onnn... Most of these guys are looking for bucks, and power, and this guy has it over McCain. AND, oddly enough, he is the kind of blood-less looking, blood-thirsty, power hungry little prick as McCain. These guys will kiss you, smile at you, as they're twisting the knife around and around the center of your brain. Watch this on TV sometime, if you can, and if you can make it through a whole (or is it "hole") session, and thinnk about HE being the guys who give a president of the Uniterd States of America ANY kind of advise, muchless spiritual.
Careflo Dollar should tell you all you need to know. And NO, I don't care if it is spelled correctly.”
“Just another attempt to steal a leader from his generation, just so the old farts, like me, can clutch their power for a little while longer. And screw things up just a little bit more.
My first concrete memory, practically, as a living creature, is the assassination of JFK; my first "racial moment" was the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.; and my first political moment was the assassination Bobby Kennedy. How do think it effected my opinions, political, racial, cultural, even spiritual and creative? It doesn't take a genious to figure out why most of "Baby Boomer's Baby Brothers and Sisters" think and feel the way they do.
I am not willing, now, to steal from the up-coming generation[s] that which was stolen from us. The leaders of OUR generation were stolen from us: through murder, and lead us down a path of lies, corruption, greed, and dismissal. And now 'Boomer' tries to 'steal,' by dirty, paranoid, partisan, politicing, assassinating character, morals, and frame of mind, of the only real candidate for these generations.”

“Sorry to say, if one hair on Obama's head is damaged, this country will implode. He has called for unity and his church have called out this nation's misdeeds for what they are. That's not un-American, that's the purpose of a minister, to hold the nation to account according to the Bible. He has united people across many boundaries. If he gets a paper cut because of a conspiracy or "lone nut", America is thru.”
“To follow is a statement by Rodger Schlickeisen, president of Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund.
“Senator McCain’s choice for a running mate is beyond belief. By choosing Sarah Palin, McCain has clearly made a decision to continue the Bush legacy of destructive environmental policies.
“Sarah Palin, whose husband works for BP (formerly British Petroleum), has repeatedly put special interests first when it comes to the environment. In her scant two years as governor, she has lobbied aggressively to open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling, pushed for more drilling off of Alaska’s coasts, and put special interests above science. Ms. Palin has made it clear through her actions that she is unwilling to do even as much as the Bush administration to address the impacts of global warming. Her most recent effort has been to sue the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to remove the polar bear from the endangered species list, putting Big Oil before sound science. As unbelievable as this may sound, this actually puts her to the right of the Bush administration.
“This is Senator McCain’s first significant choice in building his executive team and it’s a bad one. It has to raise serious doubts in the minds of voters about John McCain’s commitment to conservation, to addressing the impacts of global warming and to ensuring our country ends its dependency on oil.””
