I love when someone writes "all's fair in love and war" -- so in other words we go after everyone using sleazy tactics that clearly are sleazy or there would be no trouble admitting it, right? Then if the other side does something we wrap ourselves in history and principle and say it's shocking. I guess I mistakenly thought us conservatives stood for PRINCIPLEs...but I'm wrong seeing the size of our budget, people sitting back on the new immigration amnesty, and going along with the prescription drug plan. Principle is out the window if we condone this. And if the it is confirmed and the Democrats use it, it's good for the country that it comes out and is stopped. I think the new rule is: whatever the president says is right because he's our man. Whatever the president does is right, because he's our man. If it violates the written and unwritten rules in our democracy, it's all right, because he's our man. If it goes totally against conservative philosphy, it's all right because he's our man. I wish there was a third party in this country that believed in principle since I increasingly think I'll stay home and microwave left over pizza on election day.

Conservatives do. Does that have anything to do with the Republicans and/or the Democrats?

Well, aren't you eager to believe the worst.
Based on what?
The only thing being "microwaved" after election day if you and others stay home is going to be an American city, after the Islamofascists, with the help of a DEM president you put in, nuke one.
