    NOT that it appears to be a “black thing” or anything…more like a former member of the Dem regime at the State Capitol…it’s just a coincidence that they are both black….and they both fail to pay their taxes….AND…they both commingled their campaign funds with their personal money….AND….they both paid family members beaucoup bucks to work as consultants on their campaigns and various political interests.

    How does David Scott feel about the subject of dogfighting? Was it a cultural thing when he was growing-up as Whoopi Goldberg claims?

    Much as your parents used tales of the Kennedy’s. Oh to have a time machine so I could travel a thousand years into the future and read the tales of mythology from the 20th century. I wonder do liberals tell tales of Nixon comin’ to gitcha!

  3. Federalist says:

    Well, we do tell tales of Nixon…he was a horrible man. But lately we have been telling stories about the mass murderes that were caused by weapons transfers and sales by the Reagan admin (particulary the Iran Contra affair) and about how Bush 43 lied to america so he could kill 70,000 (so far) innocent iraq civilians. The white collar crime and sex scandal stuff is not very effective in such moral lessons. Rather than talk poorly about bill clinton, why don’t you take a few chapters from Gingriches life story Erick! Not only did he not pay taxes, over draw his congressional accounts, and launder money through a non-profit in order to evade taxes, but he had an affair (again) while impeaching clinton for the same thing!

    if someone gets the hiccups at our house–we walk up behind them and say “president hillary rodham clinton” to scare the hiccups away…

  5. Federalist says:

    What I always get a kick out of, is the unfounded fear of hilary clinton. Her record speaks the truth of her moderatation, but people insist on demonizing her. The former hilary-care has been abandoned officially, and the right wing is still freaked out that she might be the next president.

  6. Federalist says:

    It seems like this election, more and more, is not going to be centered on policy (which it rarely is). The people in this country are morons. Unfortunately people will probably be voting for: the black guy with a weird name, that woman, that mormon fellow, or Rudy Guiliani. And they only know rudy’s name because of 9/11.

    I wouldn’t say CREW lean to the left. They were involved with Rep. Jefferson (D. La.) and his “frozen” money deal, and they aren’t going easy on Murtha either (D. Pa.) I think those guys should go too. They also went after Senate Majority Leader Reid over some free boxing tickets a while back, but he wriggled free.

    From CREW:

    Last year’s corruption compendium included 25 lawmakers, 10 of whom are no longer in Congress either because they resigned, like former Rep. Bob Ney (R-Ohio), who pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges relating to the Abramoff investigation, or lost re-election. Eight lawmakers from last year’s list are now under federal indictment.

    Eight under indictment, several others under investigation. I think a lot of this is that some Republicans got greedy with their time in power. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few Democrats end up in the same boat, just give them time. I don’t think our Hank Johnson will end up being one of them but you never know.

  8. Harry says:

    No, I don’t think Hank Johnson will end up being one of them, or any other member of the Georgia delegation…that is, excepting the “Honorable” David Scott, who should be shunned by his fellow Georgia Democrats. Is that likely to happen in this life? Unfortunately, no, but they’ll sure attempt to divert attention to Craig, DeLay, Bush, Nixon, Hoover, Ronald Reagan, or whoever else they can think to bring up.

    I rarely post here so please excuse my naivete. I have two questions:
    1) Is “Federalist” (what a misnomer!) joking or mildly retarded?
    2) Should I even justify his amusing, nonsensical rants with a response?

  10. jsm says:

    Peg, Fed has called himself a nihilist, but not really a nihilist, and said that he judges everything on economic viability. Trying to have a meaningful debate with him is about like trying to negotiate with Ahmadinejad.

  11. GodHatesTrash says:

    Republicans are killing innocent people by the boatload, and Democrats are supposed to get all defensive because David Scott acts like a typical red state politician?
