    That seems completely unConstitutional! I cannot believe that could be at all binding, considering one of the principles of American Democracy is the secret ballot - duh!

    No matter what anyone does, someone some where will be offended some how!!!!

    What is the punishment if you sign the "loyalty pledge" and then do not support the winner? Do they pull out all your fingernails, make you wear a scarlet letter?

    Of course, they are the party of liberty and freedom...

    Congratulations to the entire field of the Republican primaries.

    You couldn't have self-destructed more completely had it been planned.

    5 candidates who rail against judicial activism and overreach sue to get on the ballot in VA.

    Mitt, you're a used car salesman in a nice suit.

    Ron Paul.....well........frankly, your foreign policy concepts scare the hell out of me.

    I'll say it again.....

    We need an additional choice on every ballot: None of the above.

    If none of the above wins, then the pool gets flushed and you start over.

    Now that sounds like a good idea to me.

    Happy New Year!

    Okay, I dated myself somewhat tonight on another forum....

    Someone started a thread asking how you prep quail.....

    My answer?

    Give him spelling lessons and don't let him stray from the teleprompter.

    My answer went over most of their heads....then I realized I was dealing mainly with 20 somethings.

    Hee hee! Yes, I have to check my cultural references from time to time, to fit the age of the audience!

    Now, do we really really really have to listen to politics on the radio ad nauseum from now until November? Really? I could seriously do without constant dissection of the minutiae of the campaigns, and movements in the polls by one or two points, I really could!

    We've had enough nausea here with poll phone calls & the primary. At least 8 phone calls a day. It is worse then tell a marketers. I feel for the people in NH because they are headed your way. If you have a land phone be prepared for the insanity.

    Very droll and better than your "hoser."

    Speaking of Quail, I met someone recently who was with him as he
    prepared to give a speech. An aide handed him a copy of highlighted
    points of the talk & Quail held the paper 2 inches from his face to be
    able to read it. He's blind as a bat, but is to vain for glasses.

    His poor eyesight explains a lot. Not everything, but a lot.

    So I'm reading an article on Politico, and come across this -

    With a clear opportunity to win the gold medal of American politics knocking off an incumbent president Republicans produced a field of dwarves.
    I love it - wish I were clever enough to write like that

    So not a ooops, McCain was right the first time. Is this what is called
    a freudian slip?

    Props to Barack for playing politics and rescue missions at the same time.

    State of the Union address

    "America is back" -- Pres. Obama

    Really? Sure doesn't feel like it to me. I've seen my property value almost double and then return to exactly where it was when I bought it. Everything costs more, gasoline, milk, my health insurance. And I'm getting less. I'm paying the same price for ice cream and getting 1 1/2 quarts instead of half a gallon. Lots of people are still unemployed. Lots of people can't get the health care they need. America will be back when people are working and the economy is robust again.

    Also -- I don't think it is right that in an election year the current President uses the State of the Union address as a campaign speech. That is not the purpose of the address.

    Thanks for letting me rant!
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!
