Only Alan Cranston was singled out for censure, and good ol' Slick Willy actually appointed Dennis DeConcini to the board of directors for the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. OOPS!

His race or background are insignificant to the fact that he's opted to take extremely flimsy third or fourth-hand information, and assume a position of authority by way of his notoriety, for the purpose of denigrating the candidate. I'm not saying he doesn't have the right to do that, or that he should be fired/chastized...I'm just saying it's ignorant, and comes across as an effort to smear him. I hope his thought wasn't that his race would somehow make the allegation more credible, because that's exactly the kind of shit that is wrong with America.

Do you have a picture of GermanStar taped to the back of your toilet too? That's his favorite line, as you know... He just doesn't usually include the winky-face!

Thanks for explaining. I understand better what you mean, though I don't agree. But that's fine, because I also understand that you are an Obama partisan.
