    I wonder if this has spread to other states...here in NY, I have been bombarded with Hilary Clinton phone calls, and in my mind I have been almost dissuaded to vote for her in the upcoming election because of thse calls (I was considering it anyway). If this is a Republican ploy to sway votes in their direction, I would not be surprised.

    Talk about fraud...

    So, we're saying Democrats don't employ such tactics?

    I'm saying that this is systematic voter-suppression, run out of the RNC, which already has two people in jail in NH for doing this shit the last time.

    The Republicans wouldn't dump money into the race. They have no chance of changing the outcome. Those calls are courtesy of Hilary, alright. She has the election won without spending a penny, but she has dumped millions (a record $10.1 million in the final three months) from her war chest into her campaign. It hasn't made a dent in the presidential money she'll have left over and she doesn't just want to win this race, she wants it to be by double digits to bolster a presidential run. The way I see it, though, if she was really the caring liberal she claims, she could have made a $20 million or so donation to charity and still remained Senator from NY. Would have even won someone like me over. I can't stand the fact that she is my state's representative. Please don't vote for her.
  6. To me, if she was the caring liberal she pretends to be, she would have dumped that money into a couple dozen congressional and senatorial races.

    And, like the NH story, I am on the no-call list...lawsuit here?

    I just don't like the idea that she can establish residency at the Plaza Hotel the day before the election in 2000 and run for Senate in a state she knows is a springboard toward a potential presidential run, as has been shown in the past (Robert Kennedy, for example). She's not my senator, that's for sure.

    I'm not reading all that stuff. Sorry man, but I have beer waiting.

    All I'm saying is ... well, you know what I'm saying. The RNC ain't the only one guilty of shit like that and you know it.

    No, GOP isn't alone in it, but in all the anecdotal evidence you're ever heard, who're the ones always finding new ways to "ratfuck"? Who coined the term "ratfuck?" Who celebrates the lineage of the term from the Nixon camp all the way down to its heir, Karl Rove?
  10. I/m sorry 3BAGS, but, yes, the R's have invented a whole new thang here.
