http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A9307-2005Feb8.html Didn't most Republicans vote for Bush? I don't think he was for a smaller government.

I understand. Never mind. I guess I can't explain myself well.

I still don't think you understand. The people I was pointedly criticizing are the ones that assume republicans are racists. If criticism of any and all people offends you, then you are truly an open minded person, and I apologize.

I realized that it was sarcasm. I don't find pointed sarcasm that actually criticizes an entire group of people humorous.

I'm sorry that sarcasm doesn't come through when typing. It has been implied by many (I'm talking about out in the real world, not here) that people would be reluctant to vote for Obama because of his race. It has also been implied by many on the left that the majority of racists vote Republican, I do not agree with or condone that type of thinking. The fact that my asking if I have to be racist to be republican was even taken seriously saddens me. As for FOX and MSNBC, they are both so biased at opposite ends of the spectrum that I have a hard time watching either. I'd like to form my own opinion, and not have one given to as "news".

Regarding Olbermann: Yes, Fox News (and O'Rielly) are definitely biased to the right. The key difference between Fox and MSNBC is that Fox keeps its biased commentators to their own commentary shows (like the O'Rielly Factor, or Hannity and Combs, where by the way, right wing Hannity is balanced by left-wing Colmes). But Fox's news coverage and anchor desks are moderated by people that do not evidence a strong bias (Shepard Smith, Brit Hume). In contrast, MSNBC has very biased people doing NEWS coverage (like Olbermann and Matthews, until yesterday). By removing them from the anchor desks, MSNBC is going a long way to restore their tarnished credibility.

No, you have to believe in smaller federal government, which is at the core of the Republican party's system of beliefs. No person who truly believes in smaller federal government would support Obama. And your implication that Republicans are racist is rude and uncalled for.

Well, what's it take to be a "Real Republican"? Do I have to be racist? Both parties are running on a platform of change, so I'd say the republican party is obviously changing.

Those people are definitely RINOs.

RAC, I know plenty of Republicans who are voting for Obama.

Right, like when Obama says that McCain has served his country well and is an honorable man, but then goes on to say why he (Obama) has a better plan for our nation. Saying Obama's message resonates well doesn't reflect badly on Palin. Would it have been better if instead of using diplomatic language she had said "Obama followers have drank the kool-aid"?

I like it, too. I just seemed like she was being criticized and that if we could "dig up" video where she says Obama's message resonates that it would reflect poorly on her. I disagree. I think it would reflect well on her. She could say Obama's message resonates with voters because a and b are good about it, but my message is better because of c and d.

I like it when the candidates are nice to each other. It's better than seeing them talk poop and spread lies.

Good one, lilkimbo!

And I don't see anything wrong with Palin saying Obama's message resonates well. Is it not OK for her to compliment the other candidate? She's criticized for criticizing him and criticized for complimenting him. This woman can't catch a break!

Ah, but we've already been told time and time again that church ties don't matter, so I guess things about Palin's church shouldn't even come in to play.

I think it's funny that anyone could say that Matthews is in the middle. :rotfl:

CNN turned up some interesting stuff about Palin's church. I watched that segment last night. Now both tickets have some spiritual sketchiness. :amish:

I don't think it matters if Palin personally gave her daughter an abortion while driving illegal immigrants to the welfare office in a Toyota. No republican is ever going to vote for Obama. And vice versa. I think if we all sort of agree, maybe it doesn't have to get all cranky. And then we can go back to Hitler and whether he would have voted for Dewey or Truman in '48.

If the video doesn't show up it's called "Palin and her faith".

Palin has some ties that date back 20 years also -- if it's excusable for her.....

Steph, I'll see your baseless innuendo and raise you a candidate for president who has ties to Tony Rezko, Jeremiah Wright, Michael Pfleger, Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers.

Isn't it amazing that we have a vice presidential candidate with real ties to a secessionist group? That just shouldn't be.

The klan boys at Fox wouldn't know "fair and balance" if it came and shove it's foot where the sun doesn't shine. They've been doing it from the get go, but Keith Oberman is the problem? He's one of the few people willing to tackle the McCain BS. Everybody else is busy asking him which side of his buttcheeks to kiss. All these networks are owned by the same good old boys who are profittering from the wars and the military industrial complex. Even if you had one brain cell sputtering in an empty skull, you'd know the corrupt corporate media wants McCain to win. He plan to be in Iraq indefinitely up 100 yrs if necessary. He's gonna keep those blood moneys flowing. You know Palin's husband was a member of the Alaska independence Party who wants Alaska to be a separate country. Palin addressed them this year and told them to "keep up the good work." There's a clip of John Vogler spouting of his hatred of the American Government. I was just wondering how come the corporate media and "fair and balanced" Fox don't have those clips on 24/7 like they did Reverend Wright.?
