    Talk about it here BUT STICK TO THE TOPIC and if you can't do that without veering off into Obama sucks/Romney sucks, stay away. We're THIS CLOSE to some political conversation news, don't be a stupidhead and make us change our minds.

    And stop PMing me about the first thread. I didn't lock it - but don't PM the person who did, either. It was the right call.

    Carry on but do it cautiously and use your head.

    Re: The Embassy Thread

    Let me add if we have to lock this one quickly, we will rethink what we're thinking on political talk. Yeah, that sounds like a threat. I apologize - though it may be one!

    Carry on again.

    Still few details on the circumstances, but worth noting that Benghazi is a consulate, not an embassy, and not as heavily fortified.

    It's about getting the facts right, but stay classy supporting the Great White Hope.

    And I'm sure it's of great comfort to the family of the ambassador who was blown up that they attacked a consulate and not an embassy.

    It might have been the difference between him living and him dying.

    Do you not think that's important?

    Uh, this is called the Embassy thread because it referred to the Cario Embassy thread that was locked.

    Facts and all...
