That's fair given the context of the your quote. Still hypocritical on a personal level though.

there's a big difference between a Hollywood actor who donates millions to environmental causes and drives a hybrid while taking a private jet to S. Africa to watch the World Cup with friends vs. an elected former Speaker of the House preach about "family values," about protecting the "sanctity" of "traditional marriage, and pursuing Bill Clinton's private life -- all things with real, tangible consequences that affect the lives of everyday people, like writing anti-gay bigotry into the US COnstitution, forcibly divorce gay couples, and ban adoptions by same-sex couples -- while at the same time living a life utterly contradictory to the ideals he seeks to impose on everyone else.

Callista Gingrich has to be the hottest female-to male-to female transexual I've ever seen in my life.

To remind us how much Mitt is in touch with the hard scrabble recession of everyday America mainstreet Joe the Plumber, he currently has at least $ 20 million and at most $ 100 million in an individual retirement account.

Romney's Unorthodox IRA - WSJ.com

The Gilded Age is back, bitches.

Well, it's good to see he's saving up so he can retire comfortably.

Seriously? That's uncalled for.

i'm much more bothered by him dumping his wives when they become sick (cancer, MS) than with wanting an open relationship. i also think that, yes, people make mistakes, they grow and mature, etc.

the problem is when you extend no such compassion to others, when you demonize others who live differently than you claim to, and when you actively live a life vastly different from the one you preach to others.
Well said .

And for the record, I think John Edwards is a douchebag, too. I was never a big supporter of the guy to begin with when he ran in the past, I'd always favored Obama/Kucinich. But hearing about his actions bothered me, too. Cheating is one thing and a problem in and of itself, but when you step out on someone who is ill, if not deathly sick, that's just beyond low. I fully agree that hypocrisy must be called out more on both ends with any issue, definitely.

It's funny that some voters are so desperate to go for these guys who supposedly "appeal more to the base". They forget that while they may like these guys, for one reason or another, they're not the only ones voting, and there's many more in the country who find the Gingrichs/Bachmanns/Perrys/Santorums troublesome at best, downright offensive at worst. And if I were a member of the base, and people assumed that these sorts of candidates automatically were good for me and would "speak for me", I'd be a little offended by that.

I will echo the sentiments of those about our more conservative posters here. Things have gotten heated every now and again, but I do appreciate the general respect you've shown in debates, and the arguments you bring up. Sometimes I agree, sometimes I don't, but either way, I enjoy the discussion. If it weren't for you guys it'd be nothing but an echo chamber in here, and that gets boring after a while .

Sorry if anyone thought I was offensive, I was just going for random funny. That's all.

Predictions for South Carolina tomorrow:

1) Gingrich- 34%
2) Romney- 32%
3) Santorum 16%
4) Paul- 15%

I'm going with Gingrich, but I wouldn't be surprised if Romney won either. Santorum had a pretty good debate last night- better than Gingrich- and he could take some support from Newt at the last minute. Also, today's endorsement for Romney from Bob McDonnell (who I'm increasingly thinking will be his VP selection) could sway some undecideds.

It will be interesting to see what turnout is like. I hear it's supposed to rain and storm in much of the state tomorrow, which means the race may come down to organization and get-out-the-vote efforts.

If the results play out more-or-less like this, I think it's possible that Gingrich privately offers Santorum something if he gets out, and Santorum might just accept, having little money to compete in Florida. I also think we might see Marco Rubio and/or Jeb Bush endorse Romney before the primary.

I really hope Gingrich wins SC by a few points, at least 5.

Romney will still get the nomination. And South Caroline will lose its so-called status as the king maker. It deserves to be as irrelevant as Iowa.
