Why do you do that. Kirk? It doesn't advance your argument. It is EXACTLY the bigoted statement that I expect from some inbred goof, not from an educated man.

The trick to winning an election is to get the 30% in the middle to be so offended by one candidate that they vote for the other. That is why negative stereotyping is so effective. Like your statement, above.

Gee, why can't I be a Dem...oh, that's right

If you're going to make an inbred, goofy and bigoted statement about my main man, Ralph, at least have the good sense to spell his name correctly: N-A-D-E-R

Technically he is correct, but he mischaracterizes what was going on.

He used the information he collected to blackmail them, essentially. Party didn't matter.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
