And then there were two ...

A little behind ... apologies citizens

With time creeping up and a nasty primary behind us, one would presume that things will only get nastier.

Ahh, politics ... left out sentences, presumptions of guilt, need I go on? Such is Louisiana politics. We've taught everyone else this speciality.

The question is which party will bring the biggest gun to this knife fight?

who in the world would appreciate rodney "i cover up online child sexual predators" alexander and piuysh "bobby fast talking bull shit artist" jindal?
they both lick the boots of the bush crime family. they both should be turned out of congress.

We,

Don't worry, Jindal will be out of Congress soon. He will be your next governor.....so you should get used to hearing him talk.

I do enjoy your take on local politics and agree with you most of the time. But your "conspiracy theory" on the Bush's is a little too "fringe" for my blood. Why do your liberals have to be such haters?

let us ask you and and the rest of those that support the criminal network: why do you hate america?
how do you justify supporting people that are and have transformed america into a police state?

We must stop the politics of personal destruction. We must get rid of the poisonous venom of excessive partnership, excessive animosity, and uncontrolled anger. That is not what American deserves.

what america and the rest of the world deserves are people in our congress that will stand up for the constitution and the bill of rights.

rodney alexander, piyush "bobby" jindal, jim mccrery, richard baker, charlie boustany, charlie melancon as well as mary landrieu and david vitter, have consistently shown time and time again their contempt of and for the constitution and true american values.

only william "bill" jefferson has consistently voted for our rights and people wonder why he is in so much trouble. hmmmmm.

we are selling out our children and our childrens children to a criminal network. a cradle to grave total survellience police state. how they will hate and curse us for it.

someday we all are going to stand before a holy and just god and give account of our actions here on earth. the illegal and immoral iraq war god will hold us all accountable for that as well as who knows what else our criminal government is doing around the world. someone has to be held accountable for not only the american servicemen that have needlessly died but also for all the slain innocent iraqi men, women and children.

at genesis chapter 4 verse 10 god said to cain "...the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground."

this is just one person. how loud the voices of those slain in iraq, afghanistan et al must cry out to god for vengence and justice.

america's day of judgement is rapidly approaching - you can place your faith in proven traitors like ol piyush or rodney or george w bush but you do so at your own peril.

"be not deceived god is not mocked for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap." galations chapter 6 verse 7.

Three More Former Pages Accuse Foley of Online Sexual Approaches
abc news snip:
Three more former congressional pages have come forward to reveal what they call "sexual approaches" over the Internet from former Congressman Mark Foley.

"I was seventeen years old and just returned to [my home state] when Foley began to e-mail me, asking if I had ever seen my page roommates naked and how big their penises were," said the page in the 2002 class.

The former page also said Foley told him that if he happened to be in Washington, D.C., he could stay at Foley's home if he "would engage in oral sex" with Foley.

hmmm looks like the plot thickens...

Scarlett's policy is to attack those who object to republican dishonesty. I don't mind them finding the $$$ in Jefferson's freezer or discussing the Bay of Pigs F U. I understand that democrats make mistakes and I want them to be caught and held responsible. Scarlett hates truth and justice. She is just like poor George: if you say that Iraq caused 9/11 often and loud enough, sooner or later it become truth. If you say Delores didn't lie and Foley didn't suck underage peckers enough, it will be true. but it never works. Soothsayer and Biff will always see thru you.

Anonymous said...

I would suggest that the hiring of Roy Fletcher may in and of itself be contrary to Brewers election night pledge not to go negative. However, perhaps she needs to be completely forthcoming with Fletcher before he casts the first stone. Incidentally as if Brewer did already not have the demographics to support her candidacy, she should ask some of the Republicans about how they feel about Fletcher. She would find out that if in fact she hired him that in and of itself will divide her very small Republican base. Her campaign song seems to be that Paul Simon favorite, Slip Slidin Away.

Anonymous said...

I have figured it every way possible. Roy beat Brewer in every demographic and is the most likely recipient of all the other candidate's support except the Sams contingent which won't really matter. Smith talks like he wants to help Brewer but his hand-full of votes won't align with Brewer, even if Smith could deliver it won't get her there.

I have been trying to understand the "why" of it and can only figure that Roy will win because he is Roy. I don't think anybody could have beat him.

We might be blaming the wrong person. Brewer is an intelligent realistic pragmatic person but she is set upon by certain parasitic forces that need her to hang on at any cost. In November they will leave her on the scrap heap of their greed and she will end up working the breakfast bar at Shoney's while her users try to sneak back up to the legal fee trough.

My dear Carolyn, you and Scarlett are the only people on the planet that need additional clarification on the "misspeak" and "figure of speech" issue. Mayor Randolph cleared that up about 20 minutes after it happened.

She needs to admit that she lied to cover for poor Ned who is scared to death of Kelvin and Bridget. She did it out of misguided loyalty to Ned and got the standard ungrateful screwing that fall-guys normally get. She should say it and be done with it.

beck got the emails and phone records; phone records showed she was using city cell phone to call swiney way back in march and february. The only emails sent were recipes; in other words the rest were purged. Delores was actually exchanging recipes with people while chief of staff. No need for roy to use this since she provides far more damaging information when she grants interviews like the last one right before the election when she proved all of the mailout points about the housing authority.

so what?? said...

Rick Ranson was actively supporting Delores before her weak showing in the primary. Does he have some sort of rabbit he will pull out of the hat for the general election? A more realistic way to look at it is that he may responsible for her inching our

Carolyn I have been far more than a regular at the Red Kettle for eons and your mother has never spoken to me. Come to think about it Lucille seldom speaks to me. Carla used too but she is no longer there. Paul is happy to see me. Gene does also. We will not go into who or whom the waitresses talk to. Rumour has it one carries on a conversation with herself and gets pissed if you interupt.

So I hardly think speakeing or not speaking to someone at Red Kettle is indicative of whether or not your mayoral material. What counts is the biscuits and gravy, sausage and large milk.

That's ridiculous. Jacques is running on his own platform, and Harold Chambers has nothing to do with it.

Chambers may be supporting Jacques's campaign, but that's only because he recognizes that Jacques is the best candidate, not because they've worked out any deal. Roy has stated from the beginning that Chambers is not part of his campaign team and will not be a part of his administration.

Instead of listening to people who claim to know Harold, why don't you ask people who know Jacques?

Her husband was the epitome of the "peter principle" as police chief and ,apparently , it is now her mission to be his apologist.

Anonymous said...

This really shouldn't be about kicking Carolyn. I would just like her to understand that most people simply to not see things the way that she does. This doesn't mean that she is wrong - or that others are wrong. She supports Delores because she had a major role in influencing Ned to appoint her husband as chief. Many of us see that appointment as one of Ned's serious and vital failures. She, like her husband in his barely literate attempt and a novel, put blame for his monumental failure on everyone else. Most of us assign the blame to him. The community disprespected him, the police force hated and resented him, and community race relations were set back 25 years because of him. This is not Carolyn's fault but her blind defense of him colors our view of her judgment and reminds us of a perceived low point in the Randolph/Brewer administration.

Anonymous said...

Carolyn you made no point. Just your typical rambling incoherent bullshit. You stated because Roy doesn't speak to your Mother at the Red Kettle he is somehow unfit to be mayor. Ned has been to Red Ketle - he didn't speak to me. Judge Bow Tie comes into Red Kettle and he doesn't speak to me. So speaking or not speaking in Red Kettle is no indicator of ability to serve in a position.

As usual your logic is illogical. You were doing better when your main whining subject was "stand by your man" and whinning because "somebody done Tommy wrong song".

I always wondered why a certain poster always tells you to STFU. Turns out that is an intelligent person.

I have a quesion - does Roy know your mother? If not is he supposed to come into Red Kettle just overflowing with rhetoric. I go there to eat not fratenize with people I don't know.

I wish she could have stuck to her personal feeling about the election and community without making herself a target for her husband's long overdue blame. Carolyn didn't do these things and shouldn't have to answer for it. I wish she hadn't read Tommy's self-serving self-excusing self-congratulating self-pitying attempt at a novel.

we saw squat said...

we saw that, calling President Bush a crime family you seem to forget so much of the shit that Clinton pulled while he was supposedly trying to be a president. He made a mockery of the office!

Of all the whoppers told by former President Clinton in his Chris
Wallace interview, perhaps the most outrageous was his claim that he was
involved in "trying to stop a genocide in Kosovo…" In fact, Clinton's
bombing of the former Yugoslavia killed more people than died in this
"genocide." And his policy benefited Osama bin Laden and the global Jihad.

In the year before the bombing, some 2,000 people had been killed in a
civil war in Kosovo. A conservative estimate is that 6,000 were killed
by U.S. and NATO bombs.

It's strange as well that Clinton complained to Wallace about the
"neocons" attacking him when many of the same neocons in 1999 supported
Clinton's war on Yugoslavia. The war was never approved by the U.N. or the
U.S. Congress, and in fact violated the War Powers Act. The main
beneficiary of the intervention was a Muslim terrorist group, the Kosovo
Liberation Army (KLA), with links to bin Laden, who had declared war on
America in 1996, bombed our embassies in Africa in 1998, and would later,
of course, orchestrate 9/11.

When former CIA official Michael Scheuer says that the Clinton
Administration "had eight to ten chances" to kill bin Laden and "they refused
to try," he is making a statement that goes far beyond acknowledging
Clinton Administration incompetence or a lack of will. The fact is that
Clinton had a pro-Muslim foreign policy that actually benefited bin Laden
and facilitated 9/11. Most Republicans don't mention this because too
many of them were duped into backing Clinton's misguided policy in
Kosovo. President Bush, then a candidate, even backed U.S. military
intervention there through NATO.

Scheuer's CIA also has a lot to answer for. It is noteworthy that the
CIA issued a January 2000 report that essentially whitewashed the nature
of the KLA and claimed it was pro-American. The only public release of
this dubious report came through Rep. Elliot Engel, in a posting on the
website of the National Albanian American Council, which supports an
Albanian Muslim takeover of Kosovo.

That report was prepared under CIA Director George Tenet, who on
February 2, 1999, gave testimony referring to the Serb "massacre at Ra├žak,"
which provided the pretext for NATO intervention against Serbia but
which turned out to be a hoax. Tenet was, of course, kept on by President
Bush. Not only were Tenet's fingerprints all over the failed and
deceptive policy in Kosovo, he told Bush that finding weapons of mass
destruction in Iraq was a slam dunk.

Interestingly, Al-Jazeera celebrated the fifth anniversary of 9/11 by
airing several al-Qaeda videos, one of which showed two of the 9/11
hijackers saying their actions were designed to avenge the suffering of
Muslims in Bosnia and Chechnya. Nothing demonstrates the bankruptcy of the
Clinton policy more than that. Not only did Clinton order the CIA to
help the KLA in Kosovo, he approved Iranian arms shipments to the Bosnian
Muslims, in order to help them establish a Muslim state in Bosnia.
Still, that wasn't good enough for the Jihadists. Nothing appeases them.

The Clinton policy of supporting the same extremist Muslim forces in
Europe that subsequently attacked us on 9/11 is far more controversial
than the policy of regime change in Iraq, which was officially a policy
of Clinton, Bush and the Congress. Kosovo was never a threat to the
U.S., and Serbia didn't even pretend to have weapons of mass destruction.

At least in Iraq, despite some questionable intelligence, the cause is
just. The U.S. removed a dictator and is fighting for democracy and
against the terrorists. The neocons got it right here. Such a policy may
in the short term provoke a strong anti-American reaction, as Al-Jazeera
rallies the foreign fighters to Iraq to kill Americans, but it is
vastly preferable to the Clinton policy of helping Muslim radicals come to
power in places like Bosnia or Kosovo. What's more, as the National
Intelligence Estimate (NIE) acknowledges, in a statement that has been
curiously played down by most of the media, a victory in Iraq would deflate
the forces of global Jihad.

Our media like to talk about Iraq, because they think the issue will
damage Bush, but Kosovo gets no mention, except when Clinton himself or
former officials of his administration bring it up and claim it as a
foreign policy success. There is no coverage of the anti-Christian Jihad
underway there. But seven years after the illegal Kosovo intervention,
the September 15 Washington Post reports on a new World Bank study on
fragile or failing states that "can breed terrorism." One of them is
listed as Kosovo, which is not a state—not yet. Actually, in the report
itself, Kosovo is identified as a "territory," not a province of Serbia,
but the point remains valid. Kosovo is identified as being "outside the
control of a recognized and reputable government," offering "fertile
soil on which terrorism could thrive." Terrorism is thriving there, of
course, because it was Clinton's official policy to support the terrorist
KLA and remove Kosovo from Serbian control.

The result was captured by the summer 1999 U.N. Association newsletter,
The Interdependent, which showed Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine
Albright on the cover with her thumb in the air. The headline was:
"Kosovo: The U.N. Takes Charge."

Seven years later, the U.N. is still in charge.

The growing danger in Kosovo is compounded by the fact that the problem
gets almost no attention in our media, which reported the false charges
of genocide that provided the pretext for the military intervention in
the first place but still refuse to correct the record and hold
Clinton, Albright and then-NATO Commander, General Wesley Clark, responsible
for what they have done.

The media blackout is what enables Albright, in a lecture on religion
and international affairs at Georgetown University on September 18, to
declare, "Of all that we accomplished during my time in office, I'm
proudest of what we did in Kosovo because we stopped the killing, and
people are back in Kosovo living a free life."

A free life when Christian Serbs are fleeing and their homes and
churches in Kosovo are being destroyed? Albright's outrageous comments
provide the answer in stark terms to the question: Whose side was the Clinton
Administration on in the clash of civilizations between Islam and the
West? All of the "missed opportunities" to kill bin Laden, and the
interventions on behalf of Muslims in Bosnia and Kosovo, didn't give us
anything but more anti-American attacks, more terrorism, and finally, 9/11.

Compounding the failure of the Clinton policy in Kosovo, the George
Soros-funded International Crisis Group recently released a report saying
that the international community "must avoid creating a weak state" and
that the territory must have its own army. Left unsaid is that it would
be an army dominated by former members of the KLA. That would be the
ultimate reward for terrorism. The terrorists would become the official
army of Kosovo.

Buried in the report, on page 8, you will find an interesting piece of
information. It states that "A tiny but growing minority is turning to
Wahhabi Islam," the dangerous brand of Sunni Islam underwritten by
Saudi Arabia, which is also financing the building of many mosques in
Kosovo. But this should come as no surprise. That element was always there,
nurtured by the Clinton policy. Now it gathers force again, just as it
did before 9/11.


Serbian President Boris Tadic was in the U.S. recently, on the eve of
the anniversary of 9/11, but failed to make any public comments about
the status of Kosovo in the context of the global war against radical
Islam. That was a glaring oversight. He failed to educate the American
people about the stakes involved in the proposed dismemberment of the
Serbian Republic. His article in the Washington Post, "Justice for Serbia,"
was similarly flawed in this respect, focusing on the admittedly
important issue of Serbian sovereignty but ignoring the religious dimensions
of this conflict.


It won't be enough to oppose independence for Kosovo. The terrorism
problem will remain regardless of whether it is a province, territory or a
state. But a U.S. position against independence will at least reflect
belated recognition that the Clinton policy of encouraging terrorism in
Kosovo has finally come to an end. The Bush Administration must side
with Serbia in this important chapter in the clash of civilizations.

Carolyn, I am sorry for all the personal attacks. I think we all underestimated to negative feelings of anger and betrayal that the community feels toward your husband. Perhaps a better posture for you to take is that your husband's detractors should take their issues up directly with him and allow you to be your own person with your own opinions trying to help you community.

he attack on her started because of her attack on others challenging her position on politics you dipstick. Tommie got drug into the fight because of her. She bashed Roy for not speaking to her mother - that kind, caring, loving person, at Red Kettle. As if this impacts a persons ability to govern. What it does do is show the unintelligent factors fools use in deciding the candidate they are backing.

Anonymous said...

In order to ellicit sympathy and make a grand, dramatic exit while appearing mortally wounded due to undeserved attacs Carolyn deleted her controversial postings. One could note that prior to each "attack frenzy" there is a deleted post. This was Carolyn's stupidity relative to those supporting Roy and the responding post were just that - responding o her craziness.

Someone should inform her where the word sympathy is found in the dictionary - between shit and syphllis.

hall monitor said...

Well, OK, lets assume for a moment that she is as entitled to vote against him for not being nice to mama is someone is to vote for him because he is a cute little guy or to vote against Delores because they don't like her husband. Do you think you help the Roy campaign when you react by calling her a stupid bitch? Let her talk and let her feel what she feels. She is the only female Delores supporter who has declared the need for Delores cleaning up some raw hanging issues on her honesty.

OK, we've got Ashley Simpson and you want Margaret Thatcher but maybe you are not the genius you consider yourself either. Anyway, I know Mr. Roy and he would beseech you to be nice.

Whether or not it helps or hurts the Roy campaign is not the issue. The stupid bitch assesses the ability to govern by ones actions in the Red Kettle. This is an intelligent basis to speak negatively of a candidate. Brewer is the one that got her husband in as Chief so it is understandeable Carolyn owes her loyalty. Delores is the one that doesn't need the dumb ass speaking publically.

If the stupid Bitch is gonna attack she should expect receiving the same. Not call others assholes and stupid and then publish her little pity posting. It ain't about Roy it is about her personally attackting others. Conviently she deleted her attacks. Fugg her.

In golf, you get to start from a different Tee box but in politics we all have the same rules and exposures and liabilities. They are not holding Carolyn responsible for what Tommy did. They are taking her to task for what she did and said and believes and defends. You really do women a major disservice when you start that petticoat crap.

In a city as this, where the good old boy system prevails, it is no wonder that, when presented with an anonymous forum, the citizens of Alexandria have let the mud fly. This is the first chance I've ever seen for the truth to get out there without people endangering their jobs, their families, and/or their reputations.

While I do not share all of the negative views about the people discussed on this blog (except for the things about Sams), I do agree with the concept that if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen. Don't expect people to hold back when they've been confronted with an issue they feel strongly about, and often have been forbidden from making comments on.

Lamar White, Jr. said...

Anonymous 4:46,

Yeah, anonymous blogging has allowed many people to share "open secrets" about Alexandria at little risk to their careers or their families.

Because when you decide to use your real name on this forum, you're taking a risk, particularly if people in the community still have unanswered questions.

However, to the blogger who stated that the courts have ruled you can't go after anonymous writers on the Internet, you should double check the law. Defamation is still defamation, no matter where it happens.

So yes, if an offended and overly litigious person really wanted to, they sue for defamation and possibly shut the blog down... and if they REALLY wanted to, they may be able to get a court order to find out the identity of any "anonymous" writer alleged with defamation.

Just something to think about. Personally, I believe in the right of anonymity, and I would never sue an anonymous writer. (IMHO, that would be absolutely ridiculous, and it wouldn't help anything). But not everyone in town feels the same way I do about protecting anonymity, particularly if they're the offended party.

Just something to think about.

the soothsayer said...

Ahhh a new thread! Bravo to Cenla Antics, and thank you.

The focus of the new thread seems to be the fringe of the mayor's run-off and the current state of the Republicans in DC.

As to the Mayor's race the choice seems clear. If you like the direction that the COA has taken in the last three years, vote for Brewer. She has not shown anyone that she wishes to disrupt the status quo. BTW slick campaign commercials which spout the same old retoric don't count.

If you want to change direction and proceed down a different path, vote for Roy. He has stated the things he will change, and as of yet, has not lied to the public. Also, his willingness to get involved in the Cleco debacle, when no other attorney in Alexandria would touch it, shows a certain courage.

The turmoil in DC is the making of the media. The two people most responsible for the page sex scandal have resigned their post and departed. Let's get back to the nation's business shall we?

Survey says...The mayor's race will heat up soon enough, and the lines that separate the two candidates will become much more distinct in coming weeks.

The page sex scandal will have little or no effect on the results of the November elections.

The feathers and bones have spoken.

the soothsayer said...

Oh, and one more thing....There are four words which amount to a "get out of jail free" card for anyone concerned with a defamation suit. Begin each post with "IMHO" or In My Humble Opinion.

Blog Legal Info at: http://www.eff.org/bloggers/lg/faq-defamation.php.

Can my opinion be defamatory?
No — but merely labeling a statement as your "opinion" does not make it so. Courts look at whether a reasonable reader or listener could understand the statement as asserting a statement of verifiable fact. (A verifiable fact is one capable of being proven true or false.) This is determined in light of the context of the statement. A few courts have said that statements made in the context of an Internet bulletin board or chat room are highly likely to be opinions or hyperbole, but they do look at the remark in context to see if it's likely to be seen as a true, even if controversial, opinion ("I really hate George Lucas' new movie") rather than an assertion of fact dressed up as an opinion ("It's my opinion that Trinity is the hacker who broke into the IRS database").

Actually, I don't think I agree with your Nunnally assessment. Nunnally went bad because he succumbed to the family curse but he knew and understood Alexandria city government and he was not run off for being a drunk, he was fired because he displeased the council members by, among other things, trying to remove Marshall because of his weapons conviction. He would be a valuable tool on a transition team and his authority would be limited by the short tenure of his service and an intelligent active mayor. Roy is young, eager and impatient and I doubt he wants to re-invent the wheel. The department heads are still intact but somebody needs the big picture. Ned won't be any help and Roy knows better than to trust Albin, Kelvin or Bridgett (all of whom will get a letter in the first 48 hours of the Roy administration). Just think about it.

Cell phone policy needs changing. City employees should have to list all personal calls and pay that amount. Or better yet how about not allowing personal calls other than to spouses or kids...and they have to pay back for those. It would be hard to enforce i guess.

the new guy said...

Lampert is an ex-city attorney and Roy speaks well of him and seems to respect his efforts and motivation. Maybe he could be some help in a transition operation. Anybody the council dislikes has a pretty good recommendation. Questionable whether he would want to be involved after his election rejection.

Anonymous said...

Nunnally was let go because he stopped working--period. No one could get him to do anything. Administration, council, nobody. He spent about maybe 2 hours a day at the office. he was warned that he needed to straighten up. he didn't listen. His buddy chambers agreed he had to go. his own father told people around town that he understood why his son had to be let go. if it was b/c of the family curse that he wasn't working and he is better now that's the best news i've heard in a long time.

The new guy said...

It makes sense to have top-level decision makers available 24/7 which a cellphone can provide. Allowing private use of that cell fone is a tiny price to pay for their committment to constant availability. It would be unreasonable to ask these civilians to carry two cell phones and pagers and radios. You are probably adding a total of 1200 to 1500 to the entire city budget every month. Would you rather pay these executives over-time to sit at the office or be out of touch until they get back home and check their answering machine. ITS A BARGAIN

Hey, do you need some "cheese" to go with that "wine"? If you feel that the Town Talk is useless, why do you still have a subscription? There are other media outlets of which you can indulge.

What is the purpose of this blog again?

I just have to ask. Ive not seen anyone comment on this BUT, what happend to the POLL that the Brewer people were braggin about and said showed Delores in FIRST by a lot and Roy either way back at 2nd or even at 3rd playing catch up? I did read those comments and hear those remarks didnt I ? So, what happened? Verne Kennedy Lie, Poll lie or did Brewer people mispeak ....again?

To give that confirmation, you would either have to be Roy or related to him. If that is not the case, I would advise you to buckle up for the ride. I have seen stranger partnerships and teams in the game of politics.

As for the poll question, there is a major disconnect regarding the dissemination of public information. Brewer was never noted as having a great lead over Roy.

Interesting Story in todays's Baton Rouge Business Report:

Kates wants opinion on blogs Thomas Kates, a Bogalusa City Councilman, has requested an advisory opinion from the Louisiana Board of Ethics regarding the content of political Weblogs and if they can be regulated or if there needs to be a "blogger code of ethics." Kates sent a request to the board asking about The Washington Parish Hard Copy, a message board about local politicians. The board will consider the matter at its meeting Thursday.

Brewer? Roy? Does it matter? The makeup of the City Council hasn’t changed one iota.

Re this blog: Somebody call “Venom ER” and let ‘em know there’s a great source for serum right here in CenLA.

Would seem to develop a blogger code of ethics first you would have to contact algore - he invented the intranest you know.

Secondly you would have to contact one of those federal agencies known by initials. The intranest, as best I understand it, is not merly limited to input from Loozana but worldwide. Board of ethics can't even properly police Louisiana politicians - hey maybe coffee anan could handle it, he ain't head of the new nited nations.

Why does this sound so typical of south of I-10 intelligence. The Louisiana Board of Ethics being requested to police Blogs by a politician from south of I-10.

Hey...you should get some Pepto-Bismol for that nausea. It really helps!

No, the City Council has not changed, which is GREAT! I LOVE IT!

Does "Re this blog:" mean "the reason for this blog"? If it does, that is just as funny as the question about Brewer leading in the polls! Teehee :-)

What ever happened to intelligent remarks regarding current issues? I don't think it is necessary to make degrading comments about every, single matter. That's ridiculous!
