Yes, thank goodness that Democrats never have affairs!

Again, Einstein, I did NOT say anything like that.

When you yourself spout something stupid, then say it's stupid, it's just... stupid. At any rate, it completely avoids giving any real response to what I said.

But if you want to say something stupid, then turn around and mock it as if I'd said it, you have to realize that you're arguing with yourself.

If it wasn't for your straw man bullshit, you'd have no response whatsoever. Do you realize that?

The fact is that as far as I'm aware of, there's been no prominent Dems who've had to resign due to affairs, drug dealing, pedophilia, homosexual sexual assault, cruising for gay sex (several of them) and on and on unlike the dozen or more hypocritical Republicans in the past several months alone.

Keep trying to click your heels together and repeat that the Republican party isn't shot through with immoral, lying, crooks, despite their incessant braying and yammering about "family values" and trying to portray "liberals" as EVIL for supposedly being as immoral as they themselves turn out to be in real life.

And though I've given up hope of getting you and others to ween yourself off your addiction to the illogical straw man dodge, just for the hell of it, I'll give you a short definition of it. Maybe you can grasp what it is and catch yourself doing it. Nah! That'll never happen.


To "set up a straw man" or "set up a straw man argument" is to create a position that is easy to refute, then attribute that position to the opponent.

Often, the straw man is set up to deliberately overstate the opponent's position.

A straw man argument can be a successful rhetorical technique (that is, it may succeed in persuading people) but it is in fact a misleading fallacy, because the opponent's actual argument has not been refuted.


Try to actually address something you didn't make up yourself sometime. If you can.

LOL. How many times have I read about something immoral that a Republican has done, then see a response like, "Well, Blago did such-and-such." Get a clue: hardly anybody of any political stripe likes the job the Gov is doing. Nobody's defending him.

Oh, yeah, and when Cheney shot his friend in the face, everybody had to bring up Ted Kennedy. WTH.

I guarantee that for every item of Dem debauchery we can come up with examples from the other side in double digits. GOP should stop trying to play this game.

wow, anonymous said 8 words, you responded with 331!!!!

on a lighter note, that blog you linked to wastes even more of my screen space than yours does!!!! the thing i don't understand with this day and age of people obsessing with wide screen lcd monitors, stupid bloggers still try and design their site around someone with a 15 year old monitor...

Coming from an asshole blogger yourself, and a pompous jerk to boot, I guess I should take your bitching seriously?


It's a bitch when everyone doesn't recognize your startling genius and do exactly what you think they should do, isn't it?

Boy, bet your lovelife sucks.

wow strong words from such a feeble man.

and for your information my love lief is just fine, thanks.

Listen, you posted your picture on your site. I know you're a mudslide, but what makes you think I'm "feeble"?

And congrats on finding a woman who can put up with your nit-picking and demands that she do everything the way YOU think it should be done.

Inside: you need to relax buddy. Look at the good you're doing for society man. If Robbie is here trying to come up with some putdown worthy of his overinflated self worth, then at least he's not trying to molest Pages like his Republican cohort Mark Foley. Or cruising the airport restrooms for a gay sex partner. keep up the good work keeping Republicans occupied and off the streets!

Ah, but alas, I think the good Robbie thinks he's a Dem. Not too sure though. He does help Republicans set up web sites. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

The fact that you trash people because they have a business that serves republicans and democrats is ridiculous. Paul Rumler lobbies against the minimum wage increase in Illinois.
What double standerds you have Mr. Dope.

Anon 8:51,

Well, you only got a few things wrong in that tiny comment, but sadly, they make it completely useless.

First of all, helping someone set up a blog for no pay isn't exactly "having a business" that happens to help Republicans.

I also specifically noted that there's nothing wrong with that. So your contention that I "trashed" them is ridiculous.

There's no double standards here, other than the ones you practically give yourself a hernia trying to invent.
