Joking about the possession and reptilian form.

However, if we saw Bono display this in an interview Interference would go into meltdown mode wondering about his health. #PrayforBono

no, she got paid by a corporation for a speech. by your logic since i work for a financial corporation they're bribing me and im in their pocket and should be disqualified from ever holding public office. you're so logically inconsistent it's fascinating that you think you're making any sense.

Kaine Contradicts Clinton Statements on Abortion Funding - NBC News
Kaine has a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood.

Also, he may be personally for the amendment while not actively working against the Clinton campaign's goals. Kind of like he is personally pro-life but has a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood. You are allowed to hold religious beliefs but also believe in the separation of church and state and the value of not forcing your beliefs onto others in a secular society.

People are allowed shades of gray and nuance in their views.

They spent so much time and effort attacking them that real news sources had to start speaking to their claims. But this cartoon media has been focused on the word Clinton for so long that it's just permeated our entire media landscape.

There was like a list of seriously derogatory words to choose from to paint Democratic politians with. I'm not sure, but I think it was partly put together by Newt Gingrich. That's where most Republicans got their more nasty descriptions to use.

And then, of course, these descriptions were bandied back and forth between Republican politicians and the rising tier of right-wing radio talkers like Rush, NYC local Bob Grant, Michael Savage et all.

So what favors were they bribing the founder of Tesla for that day? He spoke the same day, and got paid more.

And thank you womanfish, dieman, moonlit, and popmartijn ( for the article about William Safire) for your posts.

I've heard some politicians say when asked that big Cirporate donators will get the donator in the door to be heard, but not necessarily that they will be influenced. There maybe a continium from some who are sometimes really influenced to those never influenced.

Federal Appeals Court over turned NC 's Voter ID law for " racially discriminatory intent".

Yes!!!

Hopefully NC Republicans can't successfully reset that before the Nov election!

Oh, I dunno, wanting influence in the company for which they are now the 11th biggest stockholder.

And in turn, potentially breaking the law:

So, if Clinton had given a speech in the backyard of the Koch brothers and walked out of their with $1 million in her pocket, none of you would think it's an issue?
