I was on the thread, too, and yes, there was.

Is the thread in isolation that big of a deal? No.

It was endless, first post, spamming of anti-Fred stuff, most of which people know to be false.

I think it’s easy to unfairly perceive criticism of a candidate as unfair if you support the candidate . . . if you can decode the last sentence . . .

I really don’t understand why you keep pushing this Intrade nonsense.

Fact is, Intrade is known to you and about 1,456 other voters in the USA.

IOW, not statistically relevant!

I know. “Unnamed sources” are a red flag.

So does that preclude divorce or just infidelity.

Nothing personal, but I was referring to the validity of a persons word. If you have broken a sacred promise normally made in a church " 'til death do us part" it does bring your credibility into question. If you can't keep the most sacred of promises, how can we trust you with a campaign promise???? It all speaks to character.

IMO, it's not much different than FR polls and endorsements. The 4,000 or so members and lurkers who vote in the polls, argue vociferously on every thread about their candidate (or contentiously on every thread about an alternate candidate) are statistically irrelevant.

At times it's challenging not to get caught up in the heat of the moment. But, the reality is that whatever we post here isn't going to make a bit of difference at the end of the day.

Duncan Hunter is a good man.

And that still leaves us Giuliani, Romney, or Huckabee.

Only if they support Giuliani.

So everyone who has been divorced is suspect and not fit for office.

That’s what I am hearing, correct?

There was an article posted here Sunday that covered the Gallup poll and I am sure a search on FR will yield it.

Not enough! All articles from CQ Politics should be banned, and anyone who attempts to post articles from CQ Politics should be banned for such scurrilous behavior!

Every campaign goes through lulls. I wouldn't get very worked up about this just yet, although I've been on record as saying Thompson's relative inactivity has made me nervous.

Fred could lose a lot of support after Iowa if he shows poorly and Huckabee does very well.
