    Right. Except for that VA nurse they investigated and nearly charged with sedition after she wrote a letter to the editor that was critical of the war.

    Other than that, they haven't tried to throw anyone in jail. They should feel really proud.
  2. Ah, yes, the pivotal year of 1992, when the Republicans threw a hissy fit that lasted the next eight. Bob Dole saying that he was the leader of the country that didn't vite for the guy who won the election, multimillion dollar dirty tricks operations bankrolled by shadowy billionnaires, phony Whiteater scandal, and economic recovery package that didn;t get a single Republican vote, Bill Kristol saying not to pass any health-care package because it would be bad politically, etc. etc. etc.
    Of course, they didn't think of ginning up fake terror alerts using bag people under the sway of the FBI to "bring us together."

    Can't Bill K finally just go down on Dan Quayle, long-term, and leave real Americans alone? . . .

    It strikes me funny that the first people to call bullshit when somebody on the left mentions Hitler or Nazism are going rah-rah over Cheney and Rumsfeld's use of the same tactic.
    If I'm a Nazi appeaser, Dick-head and Rummy are bin Laden appeasers. They've stopped pursuing him, right?

    He's a critic of the Bush Administration, fo sho.
    But let's see how he acts in 08 if the Dems win the presidency and IF MSNBC still exists.

    I'm from Canada. There's almost nothing on television here that's remotely left wing, outside of Comedy Central.
    Even there, Jon Stewart strikes me as a Clinton Democrat.

    I guess you missed the memo about that pinko liberal newsnetwork called the CBC.

    And "Corner Gas" is pretty subverside. Not to mention Rick Mercer.
  9. There's a few others here who need those lessons more than I do. Fight fire with fire, I always say.
  10. Just don't get drunk and shoot anyone in the face.

    That's like leading trump.

    Well, yes, people on my half of a fictional political divider have done, and continue to do, things that are downright scandalous.

    On the other hand, Dick Cheney shot a guy in the fucking face.

    Oh yeah, the press really lined up to criticize the unsubstantiated claims that led us into the Iraq clusterfuck.
