Yeah, because that never happens to Democrats. :roll:

Politics Daily wrote:State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley resigned Sunday after creating a stir last week by telling a small audience at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that the prison conditions under which authorities are holding WikiLeaks suspect Pfc. Bradley Manning were "ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid on the part of the Department of Defense."

Pretty much every lib/Dem I know is outraged by the treatment of Manning.

And yet a State Department official who spoke out against that treatment was compelled to resign. Obama said: "I have actually asked the Pentagon whether or not the procedures that have been taken in terms of his confinement are appropriate and are meeting our basic standards. They assure me that they are." And Hilary Clinton accepted that resignation. Are they DINOs? :lol:

So, pretty much the entire GOP reacts against Gingrich, but a handful of Dems react the wrong way in this case... Yup, Repubes and Dems are opposite sides of the same coin... :roll:

You're weighing the president and sec. of state, and the loss of a career, against a bunch of primary-season sniping. Really? Really??

No, Establishment Dems. As the Republicans lurch further and further into the abyss of out and out fascism, the centrist dems like Obama and Clinton move into the space vacated by the almost-nonexistent moderate republicans. The are center-right Establishment politicians. The only real dems left are the 80 or so progressives in the House.

I always get so excited about the president elections. I'm Canadian, but I always make a big bowl of popcorn and cheer for my favorite candidate on TV. Isn't it in November they do that? I've picked the right president 4 out of the last 5 elections. I'm not gonna say which one because I'm too embarrassed.
Did I do that?
