Jeepers. I was all set to vote for Hillary because she's a girl, but now that you point out that Ron hates the war, I might have to change my mind. :hmm:

True, and the primaries will go really fast this year

After Feb 5, we will most likely have our nominees.

he is Jewish

he only went GOP because he could not get the Dem nomination for Mayor

Sounds almost like Joe Lieberman's blueprint for success for the CT Senate seat. Rudy also held a lot of the same "liberal" positions as Bloomberg in the past as mayor.

Democratic Presidential candidate and Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich opened the New Year by publicly asking his Iowa supporters to vote for him in the caucuses this Thursday, and suggesting that if he did not make the 15% threshold, their second ballot should be for Senator Barack Obama.
I was starting to worry a bit about Obama because he had some sketchy poll results in the last week or so. Definitely wasn't going great. But this morning's poll is fantastic, and although Kucinich isn't polling well in Iowa, it's something.

The Republicans will still need all the votes they can get, though. I certainly wouldnt put it past the Clinton people to go around slashing some tires on election day.
Ah yes, the good ole VLWC.

I wouldn't put it past your crowd to bomb a few buildings and blame it on the Moslems.

But you can imagine Hillary voters voting for him?? Seriously, on what planet? He stands for virtually everything in 180 degree opposition to her platform.

Including the war. Hillary, the well know 'far leftist', is very much a war monger candidate.

Er, no. I think you'll find that would've been the massive electoral fraud.

Putting words in my mouth, nice.

Mind you, for the sake of argument, if I were to suggest that 9/11 was an 'inside job' then according to some polls, a majority of Americans would agree with me.

Though in actual fact, I don't really know what precisely happened on 9/11 (and neither, I suspect, do you.)

It's interesting that this rather insulting comment about Ron Paul's supporters, which does not appear to be said in jest, goes unremarked on FYM.

If someone remarked jovially that Hillary might be likely to attract the lesbian vote, would such a comment pass unnoticed?
