  • Great points, Sam. We're seeing the same abusive treatment of O'Donnell that Palin received.

    If our media could quit obsessing over conservative women and start looking into real stories...like voter suppression and the way the government just dropped the case...they might actually start making money again.

    I guess it's just far more important to figure out what O'Donnell doesn't do when she's alone, or who she dated in high school. After all, no one REALLY cares if the Black Panthers kept a bunch of crackers from voting, right??

    Right??

    Guillermo,

    I thought with your vast study of religion you would applaud Ms O'Donnell for seeking out other paths to Truth. If she decided she preferred Christianity at least you have to give her the credit you don't to posters on this site.

    Molly,

    He used to be Senior Loud, I think the Dr. was just an honorific.

    What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label "Liberal?" If by "Liberal" they mean, as they want people to believe, someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer's dollar, then the record of this party and its members demonstrate that we are not that kind of "Liberal." But if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."

    Kind of a fun quote.

    Guillermo,

    Ease up on the defensiveness, I didn't say you derided O'Donnell, I said I thought you would applaud her.

    "Wasn't O'Donnell a witch for awhile" Followed by: "In fact, I wasn't talking about O'Donnell's religious choices"

    I'm sorry I thought when you referenced her religious choices, you were indeed talking about her religious choices. When you deride Christians regularly for not thinking about their religion and blindly accepting what others say, I thought you would have more respect for someone who thought about religion and decided that one was a better fit for herself.

    I wasn't arguing, why does everything have to be an argument? I was making an observation.

    Not being an rampantly intolerant Christian myself, I can't say for certain. However, I would imagine they would be happy that she has returned to the "True Faith" or some such. For, unlike Islam, there is no death penalty for apostasy in Christianity so for one to wander from the faith then return would be seen as a good thing.

    Benevolent On,

    I'm sorry but I don't think I've ever spoken with you, is it necessary for your first words to be be made in mockery?

    Guillermo,

    "You are assuming that I was disrespecting her religious choice. You are of course wrong. "

    Of course I'm wrong, everything I say is wrong isn't it?

    So is the the one time you aren't disrespecting Christianity? Because as I've seen you haven't had anything good to say about it, I think you could forgive me for thinking that you still hold a negative view of it's adherents.

    I knew you'd have to respond to the Apostasy thing, that's why I love tweaking you.

    @TBO I've seen you reference scopolamine a number of different times. I'm aware of the fact it occurs naturally in the Jimson Weed (A member of the same family as deadly nightshade, scary!) plant of Nebraska. I've also seen the insanity it induces first hand. Just curious why you continue referencing it?

    ""Of course I'm wrong, everything I say is wrong isn't it?"

    Yeah, more or less."

    Oh the paradox makes my head hurt.

    @Mrs Smith This is why people have problems with the crazy O'Donnell lady. Not because of past witchcraft nonsense, because she is a moron.
