First, "dimwitted skulls"? Isn't that like calling republicans neandrothals?

Won't even consider suggesting you use spell check.

To answer your question, No! It was supposed to read "dimwitted Numbskulls" with no inference to Neandrothals implied.

However, given the Republicans pathetic lack of outrage at Kennedy's statement, I would now have to consider them one geodesic era below the now embarrassed Neanderthal.

Today is now Monday and where is the media coverage as well as the woefully anticipated Republican outrage at Kennedy's "Neanderthal" statement?

As I stated, come Monday the statement will have become forgotten history......

Give me a break. Racist? His remarks were demeaning and ignorant, but they were not racist. Don't start hyping things into something they are not like the Dems do.

I can see where you just get tired after awhile with the things like the Lott affair that you described above, so you just lash out when you get a chance. But I thought our goal was to try to end the situation we've had over the years where every innocuous statement is searched for some ludicrous racial component. Raising a fuss over this remark won't accomplish that goal.

Most any other day, I do agree with your sentiments that the ends do not justify the means. I guess when you get down to the brass tacks, I'm just at the point where I'm fed up and honestly want to see the crows come home to roost on the Left side of the fence.

In all this, I'm reminded of the one poor guy who happened to use the word "niggardly" (which is totally unrelated to anything even remotely racist!) and he got the royal screw by the Left.

And somehow I'm supposed to believe that if we keep letting the Left get away with playing the race card at the drop of a hat while we take the canonical high road that everything will turn out all right in the end? I'm sorry, but I'm just not seeing it.

In a perfect world, it would mean getting his butt kicked out of the Senate.

Racism is hating a person because of their race. Yes the dems hate blacks and hispanics, that is why they put minorities where they do in their social agenda. And if the blacks or hispanics don't stay in their place, the dems are too quick slander. You need to open your eyes.

It sure is racial--but none of the current races. The Neanderthals were a subspecies of man that died out--perhaps due to genocide. So, in a way, "Neanderthal" is as racist as you can get. But since offensiveness is directly correlated to voting population, "Neanderthal" flies below the radar.

LOL!

I agree there should be some outrage, just not because it is racially motivated. It is not.

Also, I did consider using spellcheck, I was just too lazy. What makes it worse, I knew I spelled it wrong more than once since Kennedy's statement. My bad. I'm embarrassed, I'll go to my room now. "N e a n d e r t h a l" firmly implanted in my brain.

Speaking of Senator Kennedy...he's throwing a fit on the Senate floor now. Attacking the House Republicans over prescription drugs. Silly Republicans--wanting to give people medical savings accounts they control themselves with their own money.

I understand your view in this context: President Bush has remained above the fray of back biting and name calling. The Democrats have exhaustively used every dirty trick to bring Bush down. Who's winning? Let the democrats implode.
