The DemoRat Party DOES have a "conscience". He's called Jiminy Cricket Carter.

Good points. I'd like to know what they said publicly about Sen. Lott.

I just find it extremely hypocritical that there isn't the FIRESTORM that the Dems created with regard to Sen. Lott.

That is the problem with their rantings over Sen. Lotts statements. Now they must live up to the HIGH bar they set.

Fair is fair.. ya know?

Nah!!! The St. Patrick's Day war will obliterate everything else for a minimum of three months. All else will be forgotten. In fact, if it takes much longer to start, it will begin to obliterate the presidential primary season, (which this year will be a 5 month commercial for the victorious Dem). These ceaseless UN delays could play right into Bush's hands on the domestic political campaign front. If the offensive is still going...it's hard to buy political ad time if every network is running NO commercials like they did for 6 weeks after 9/11/01.

It was the democrat party that condoned lynchings of Jews and legal proscriptions against "Hebrews." It has always been a source of amazement why Jews support the rats.

Real shocker here; Tom Lantos, Henry Waxman and co. are against free speech. Jim Moran is indeed a despicable guy, and a joke as a public official, but these remarks may have been the only time he's ever uttered the truth in his political career. I realize there are few left here who will agree with me-or refrain from attacking me for saying so-but whatever your feelings about the Middle East, you can't deny the influence Israel is wielding on the Iraqi issue.

Since he is a democrat, the media won't give this any coverage until they can figure out a way to call him a conservative.

How about you tell us a little about this influence before I "attack" you?

Thanks for the info.

Even if his district is majority 'rat I still can't understand why anyone would support him. How do those suburban soccer moms justify voting for a wife beater?

People are stupid. It has to be the reason why people like Moran and any Kennedy stay in office.

If he gets the Dem nod to run, then a Republican will probably win the district. They reason they do not want him to run has nothing to do with what he said. They simply do not want to loose another House seat. If he doesn't run, then they will have an untarnished Dem that would fair better against a Republican...

Simple politics behind their stance, not ethics.

It seems to me he is ripe for the picking in '04 if the R's want to fight for the seat.

I'm told that he occupies a Dem "safe seat" -- suburban Washington -- most of the residents are Govt. employees.

Well there is a certain amount of respected given to your own party members. There wasn't exactly a huge republican outcry against Lott.. and there should of been. At any rate what you haven't seen is a huge republican reaction to it(unless i've missed it). Which tells me two things. One the democracts trumped them(i find that hard to believe) or the republicans feel it's their own house and they should be the one's to clean. Which is how the democrats should of handled the deal with Lott. They didn't even give them a chance before they started frothing at the mouth about how the whole Republican party must be racist.

I would think it was very obvious. Can you deny the power of the Israeli lobby on lawmakers? The Bush administration is dominated by neoncons who are devoted to Israel; Perle, Cheney, Wolfowitz, etc. Israel has a good reason to be concerned about Iraq or any other Islamic countries in the Middle East. I don't think America does.

Years ago I found comments like this laughable. Post September 11th I find them insultingly absurd.
