So he likes to see the cow before he buys the milk! Being oversexed seems to be a political attribute. Knocking one of those Libs out of office would be a plus.

I had the same impression of McCain at about the same time. We were in Hilton Head at the time of the primary and happened to be in the McCain hotel.

The lobby was crawling with aides and I was invited to a press conference early in the morning and I saw a man I wasn't prepared for. I got the same, instant feeling that I did the first time I saw Hillary.

I won't go so far as to call it evil but there was a strange, unsettling feeling. No vote for you.

You are protesting not having evidence of that? Well...O.K.

My point was that there is no reason to tarnish the man by comparing him to Arnold. Yes, of course Arnold sold us out on everything Republicans stand for, but as I said, there is no proof Grammer is going to. So that makes it unfair to compare the two (for now).

Actually, Dan was saying it was unfair to compare Grammer to Schwarzenegger, since Schwarzenegger "[sold us] down the road on every issue we care about."

In other words, it's a jab at Schwarzenegger.

"Hello, Birch. Long-time listener, first-time caller. Kudos for bringing the public back to the Republican party. It's high time people realized we conservatives aren't all Johnny Hatemongers, Charlie Bible Thumps, or even -- God forbid -- George Bushes. "

"Young friends, my opponent, Joe Quimby, is confused about your school system. Do you know what he does? He flip-flops."

"That was a _big_ mistake, Bart. No children have ever meddled with the Republican Party and lived to tell about it."

" Bob: Only _I_ could have executed such a masterpiece of electoral fraud. And I have the records to prove it! Here, just look at these -- [pulls out binders and floppy disks] each one a work of Machiavellian art.
Judge: But why?
Bob: Because you _need_ me, Springfield. Your guilty conscience may force you to vote Democratic, but deep down inside you secretly long for a cold-hearted Republican to lower taxes, brutalize criminals, and rule you like a king. That's why I did this: to protect you from yourselves. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a city to run. "

He's been accused of raping his 15 year old baby sitter --- since when do Republicans nominate Clintons?

Dear Alter Kaker,

It sounds like a lot of difficult stuff came his way early in life, and he didn't do that well with it.

I'm not sure I'd have done much better if I had a father and a sibling murdered, and then two more siblings dead all before I was 25.

Given all that, he managed to turn his life around.

I'll judge him on the issues, but I can readily look beyond his past.

One more point:

After watching President Bush fumble the English language for the 5 years, I'm more convinced than ever that being a solid public speaker is a prerequisite to be influential public office holder. Perhaps the Presidents biggest failing is his inability to coherently relay his message and has been the cause of considerable stress and dissent.

Though I'm still unclear on his stance on any issues, Mr. Grammer does claim to be a Republican, and I believe him to be highly intelligent. I think he could mount a solid challenge against Sen. Boxer in California and I think he should be seriously considered. His ugly past could be considered a strength since he is quite open about the road he's been down. I think it gives him more credibility.

What does he know about the US Constitution? The California state constitution? Does he know how the government is set up to work, or is he one of those "reinventing government" types that wants to set up regional soviets and government by bureaucracy like Arnold is trying to do?

True. We don't know the answer to those questions yet. Wait and see. Hopefully if he's serious he'll hit the airwaves so we can make that assessment. All I'm saying is not to dismiss him at this time.

He'll probably be ripped apart by the ivory tower snipers for being a "RINO" before he gets a chance to open his mouth.



If he is pro-life, anti-homo marriage and anti-illegal alien, he has my support and my money. Otherwise he pretty much would be a Rinocrat.

I'm confused. Wasn't he caught with and under-age girl once? Or something like that? Seems I got real turned off when I heard what had happened. Don't think I could vote for him after that.

"Frazier for Senate?"

Who for what?

I've learned to always be skeptical of people who want power over me but I would vote for Kelsey Grammer at the moment, knowing what I currently know about him. Of course I voted for HW Bush, twice, so what how knowledgeable can I be.

The DA didn't even bring charges, and they bring charges on pretty flimsy evidence quite often. But an unproven accusation is enough to disqualify him in your mind. Tells me more about your sense of judgement than his qualifications for office.

No kidding. Gee, have any of the stone throwers considered that it is possible that a wealthy actor could be the target of unfounded accusations in a quest for monetary gain on behalf of the purported victim? Nope, in our society, accusation is enough.

This is why my husband NEVER takes the babysitter home.

Sort of how he acted in SunCity last week when confronted ie his stand on illegal immigration and the person asking the questions didn't back down or allow herself to be cowed by his obvious anger.

It will only happen if we all sit out the primaries and McCain wins over some good Republicans (there has to be a few of them that will still run).

Agree completely. Grammer being a celebrity could have a lot to do with that type of charge. And you're right. These days, if it's against a Repub, just the accusation is enough to destroy him. Who was it that asked, after being acquitted of charges, 'where do I go to get my reputation back?'?

"Actually, presidential. Remember Hillary and Eleanor Roosevelt?"

Eleanor never made it to the white House herself and, if we are lucky, Hillary won't either so they can talk to all the dead people they want as far as I care.

The moral slips that Grammer made would definitly make him Presidential materiel, but he would have to become a DemocRAT.

In the mid-'90s Grammer was accused of statutory rape by the parents of his child’s 15-year-old babysitter, but a New Jersey grand jury declined to indict due to lack of physical evidence.

Glad he got off. We can only hope the teenager paid dearly for her accusations.

his willingness to discuss his troubled past - which includes alcohol and cocaine addictions

Unless I'm mistaken, something about his "family values" left a lot to be desired, too.

Why he's Senatorial Timber.

I worked with Kelsey in the late 90s and adore him as a person and actor. I don't know if he is center or right of center, but I'm hoping he can be a formidable candidate in the socialist state of California.
