The UK media have done a much better job of late covering this campaign than our liberal Obama lapdog media here in the US.

He never told them to stop, he attack proofed himself by saying his mother was 18 when he was born. That was completely self serving and basically holding the press’ coat.

Pray for W, McCuda and Our Troops

“...they succumbed to a spasm of hatred and threw the vase, the crockery, the cutlery and the kitchen sink at an obscure politician from Alaska. “

Earlier today I saw this article posted on du with an “I told you so” admonishment.

But as the thread progressed, the dUmmies there succumbed to a spasm of hatred and threw the vase, the crockery, the cutlery and the kitchen sink at a once obscure politician from Alaska.

They just cant help themselves!

Especially the UK. I suspect they long for the Days of Maggie when that country had a bit more self respect.

she did not send her son to iraq. Track made the decision to serve. his upbringing may have been instrumental in the decision but it wasn’t and isn’t his mother’s decision.

But instead of protecting their precious advantage, they succumbed to a spasm of hatred and threw the vase, the crockery, the cutlery and the kitchen sink...

Isn't this what qualifies them as democrats?

FOX just reported that obamagod and biden are likely to go after Sarah hard this week. Here’s a flash—they already tried to get to her through her kids and she came through like the trooper she is. I thinks she can handles the sticks and stones they dredge up from their pit this week.
