the cross was 100% intentional.

and i really don't care. i wasn't "outraged" by it. Huckabee can say that Jesus Christ himself came down and told him to run for office, and it wouldn't outrage me. it would simple confirm my suspicions that he's a deluded simpleton with an uncommon down-home touch.

i don't know where the "same level" attention is over Obama's flier. i haven't even heard of it. i suppose this has to do with the liberal media conspiracy that keeps good Christians down and secretly promotes muslim candidates who are going to surrender to Iran.

Well if you're going to continue to play as if you don't see the difference then I'll spell it out for you.

First there was no outrage over Huckabee's "cross". Intentional or not, I don't care, but he did make the same ad for churches but with a "war on christmas" rant.

Huckabee sold himself as the "if you are Christian you need to vote for me" president, Obama is not doing that. Obama is trying to dispell the stupid rumor of him being Muslim, which is pretty damn sad. Obama has never and will never say the constitution needs to be more like the Bible.

One wants a theocracy the other doesn't. See the difference?

I mean making one that emphases that the first lady in waiting is an unpatriotic she-devil who will wield influence over her husband.

This election can turn on clips like that one,
first time in my adult life I am proud of my country?

plus Obama's statement about people's bitterness causing them to "cling" to their guns and "cling" to their religion.

something as simple and meaningless as not wearing a flag pin takes on added importance

maybe they'll go after Obama's little girls next!

tell me again, deep, why Hillary isn't winning with all of the baggage the Obama family apparently has?

is Obama bigger than Bono?

[q]By Matthew Mosk
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Sen. Barack Obama has seen his share of large crowds over the last 15 months, but his campaign said they have not approached the numbers gathered along the waterfront here right now.

The campaign, citing figures from Duane Bray, battalion chief of Portland Fire & Rescue, estimated that 75,000 people are watching him speak.

The scene suggests this is not an exaggeration. The sea of heads stretches for half a mile along the grassy embankment, while others watch from kayaks and power boats bobbing on the Willamette River. More hug the rails of the steel bridge that stretches across the water and crowds are even watching from jetties on the opposite shore. [/q]

Do I need to bring back that Obama v. Bono poll?

Actually the MSM lauded Huckleberry for his political savvy.

I do think the people of N Y and the Country would be well served by having Bill Clinton with all his skills and intelligence serve in the Senate.

What's wrong with clinging to your religion? or for that matter clinging to your gun?
