    "David Lane’s American Renewal Project had asked “100,000 pastors” that it was working with to mobilize Christian voters to also dig up dirt on people connected to presidential candidates."

    These people are so bat-shit crazy that they, literally, said G.W. Bush might have been disqualified had they known Laura Bush would "hint" at LGBT equality and abortion rights "after" Bush's term.

    Umm, GWB was the most conservative president we've ever had in the history of the modern presidency. Far surpassing the relative moderate stance of his father, he single-handedly ushered in the preemptive war doctrine, cut welfare, gave tax breaks to the super rich, failed to fund his (otherwise good) prescription drug bill, pandered to nativist rhetoric, failed to look for Osama in Afghanistan (because he was too busy lying to get us into Iraq...a separate and distinct brown country "over there"), and nominated some of the most conservative Supreme Court jurists to ever be sworn in.

    What the f*ck are these people smoking? GWB would have been disqualified? Oh brother.

    Maybe we're approaching a level of Right Wing crazy so extreme that their ugliness will finally start to turn off some of the mainstream that has been pulled along with their rhetoric. The "Ho"-bashing of Hillary for sport is an example though you could name just about any of the positions taken by the current crop of Republican candidates and trace it to an extreme base that thrives on hatred and fear. Sad.

    I wish I shared your tempered optimism, but the GOP leaders always white-wash the vitriol by saying "yadda yadda yadda, they're fringe and don't represent US"

    Apparently, there is no true Scotsman. The fallacy continues.

    This endeavor to "snoop" into individuals background for any link to LGBT community scares me. Does this not strike a familiar note in history some 80 years ago? icon_question.gif

    My math was off your right. Alto' what happened in WWII wasn't off the mark either, looking for gays, Jewish and so on. The idea, especially in the information age with the internet and whatnot, its easy to find any one who ascribes, identifies or sympathetic with any particular group.
    Just a thought

    ^^Partisan hack. Do you honestly believe that the Iraq war wasn't GWB and Cheney's brainchild? Bush to fix what his daddy didn't, and Cheney for financial reasons (see Halliburton).

    You don't honestly expect us to take political posturing by Dems as an actual agenda to invade Iraq, do you? If you honestly believe anyone would buy what you're trying to peddle, you're sorely mistaken.

    If Gore had been in the White House, we wouldn't have invaded Iraq. Period. Stolen elections have consequences.

    "You don't honestly expect us to take political posturing by Dems as an actual agenda"

    Sorta like all of those Obama 'red lines'? That does wonders for one's credibity.

    To be perfectly honest, this about all the time you're worth, and besides, don't you have to get back to your "hundreds of jury trials" "that you never settle" "preeminent NYC attorney"?

    Ya know, I've known thousands more attorneys than you'll ever know in your life (a couple of people here know how) and most if not all work pretty damn hard. Frankly, after watching your posting behavior on RJ over the last six months or so, and combine that with your 'claimed' activity level at work, sumthin doesn't quite add up so you have little room calling anyone else a liar

    So here, once again:

    Both the democrats and the republicans are equally at fault for the disastrous war in Iraq. The hapless Hillary ho was fully supportive of this quagmire. Both major parties are no damned good.icon_mad.gif

    You keep living in your ultra leftist fantasyland. She is not going to be our next President.

    First, Democrats only supported the war in Iraq because of the false information the Bush Administration gave them about WMD. Democrats were tricked into approving the war.

    Second, calling Hillary Clinton a "ho" just cheapens your argument, and you as well, quite frankly. Is it OK if we start calling the Republican Presidential contenders the "pimps" of their corporate sponsors? I think that's a good idea.

    You are so full of shit but again you a blind sycophant of the hypocritical, incompetent, and corrupt democratic party. Don't even feed me that baseless bullshit that the democrats were pressured into supporting this war because they are just as bloodthirsty and war mongering as the republicans. Their political careers and their paychecks depended on it. Don't give me that fucking crap that they were pressured into supporting the Iraq war. The donkey dorks were pro war all along.

    I can see the hate is strong tonight. I'm a Duke law graduate and prominent NYC atty. Literally, when people see my letterhead they know who they're dealing with. I have nothing to prove to you, so keep dreaming.

    Insofar that your "career" has made you privy to special knowledge of hard hitting NYC/SDNY attorneys, have fun. I'm sure I'll see you at a dinner party or cocktail hour soon.

    ^^Think what you like. I'm on top of my game, doing everything ethically, and nobody can touch me.

    Keep hatin' if you'd like. You wouldn't be the first hater nor the last.

    And I don't do California. Never cared for it, likely never will.

    "I'm on top of my game" " nobody can touch me."

    Really full of yourself for such a wee wittle boi

    About to claim "hundreds of jury trials" again? "never settle"?
