  4. MSNBC saying something positive about Clinton has about as much weight as Fox "news" saying something negative about her.

  5. Andrew, you didn't read that Rhode Island article very well, did you.

    What you said: "Democratic State Sen. Frank A. Ciccone III plans on introducing a bill that will put same-sex unions to a popular vote, rather than allowing lawmakers to decide."

    What the article said: "Rather, [the bill] would ask voters if they want it to amend the state Constitution so that it defines marriage as 'the lawful union of one man and one woman.'"

    See the difference?

    Also, Lincoln Chafee is a former Republican turned Independent, so he is not a party peer.

  7. The gays should team up with Scientology because the same people who are suppressing them are the anti-gay Christians and Catholics.
    The anti-gay Christians and Catholics turn the gays against Scientology so they waste their money and time attacking Scientology. It is a trick to get the gays to waste their time and money that they could be using to fight the anti-gay Christian and Catholic agenda to stop gay marriage and LGBT people. Everybody knows that it is the anti-gay Catholics and Christians who are spending millions of dollars to stop gay marriage and the "gay agenda", the anti-gay Christians and Catholics give their money to the anti-gay Christian hate groups like NOM and FRC to stop and suppress LGBT people.

  8. Does lightning cause migraines? I would think you'd get a whale of a headache if struck by lightning, particularly if struck in the head. I think that's fairly obvious.

  11. Those vanity plates should have read "Target Practice." What an idiotic thing to do. That's why cars in LA are pretty void of stickers and vanity plates have gone out of favor. Don't wear your politics on your car. It could be dangerous.
