    file this under two wrongs make a right

    i like the GOP logic

    yeah we are bad but we aren't as bad as the democrats!

    that may be the case

    if the demo Craps can't win control this september they should disband the party

    seriously

    Nice to see the mud still flying. :yes:

    Hey, I was thinking about hooking up with Mark Foley for some underaged male sex.

    Nah, forget it. I think I'll just read some moronic e-letter from Barbara Boxer.

    And it looks as if I'm stuck with this middle-aged sex over here.

    Geez, which would be worse: To have underaged sex, or to join the Republicans? What would I tell the children?

    Geez, which would be worse: To vote dem or have your head lobbed off by a terrorist.

    BTW, if you care to notice, the list I presented was of actual crimes committed. And those were just from Congress. If I presented a full list of perceived crimes committed by the assistant to the assistant to the assistant, like one of you libs did, Sooth's board would crash -- never to recover.

    Grow up. What is wrong with you? Get your head lobbed off by a terrorist? You are a complete idiot.

    You are completely classless.

    And this was lost on them. Either that or when the assistant DA (a REPUBLICAN!) of Boone County, WI gets caught getting a bj from a teenager in 1982 then it's clearly a pattern with Repukeikkkans!
