Here's Kinde; a typical Democrap female: butched hair, ugly, fat and dressed in a garment stitched up by Omar the Tentmaker.

Savage refers to them as mean, clipped-haired oven-stuffers from Bergen-Belsen.

“...dressed in a garment stitched up by Omar the Tentmaker.”

It looks like an ugly curtain or drop-cloth with sleeves.

The good news, based on the photo, she’ll be safe in jail. Who would want to have any of the ‘that’?

Always good to prosecute these kinds of crimes.

But let’s remember to “hold our tongues and keep it classy” as Palin suggested.

She stole campaign funds from Democrats. Mai tradire la famiglia.

Thanks george76.
...who works for federal, state and O.C. lawmakers including U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Rep. Loretta Sanchez and state Assemblymen Lou Correa and Jose Solorio... also oversaw the political-action committees of the Democratic Party of Orange County and the Democratic Foundation of Orange County, among others.
That will cost Zero some Cali votes in 2012. Lucky for him a lot of RINOs won't vote for any alleged RINOs -- e.g., the entire Republican field so far. Everyone's a RINO to someone.

Remember, this woman is our political opponent but she’s also a sovereign individual, a child of God.

I don’t mean to sound preachy. The true moral code is never the same as political correctness, and here’s how to avoid mixing the two—do it in God’s name.

I’m as guilty as anyone else when it comes to talking bad about others. And Palin’s comment to hold our tongue and keep it classy is right in line with the Commandment to love your neighbor.

I’m wondering if this was sanctioned by any candidate as a way to funnel funds to different entities or for the candidate’s personal use.

Sounds like she and her organization were so “entrenched” that they figured what they were doing _couldn’t_ be wrong!

Yes indeed, lending truth to the slogan “Democratic Women: The life of the Party”
