Does this mean you'll stop blaming her for everything from the state of the US, to the price of hogs in Iowa?

I was rhetorical in nature for sure.... I know we'll be hearing it about her till we're all dead or the media presents a bigger "crook" to latch on to.

My Grama says this is all part of God's plan.

I can't really argue with either of them.

well shes got one mansion in napa valley near a vineyard (on which she employs NON union labor by the way, check if u dont believe me) and shes also got a mansion in san fran or sacramento or somewhere....

the tongue in cheek implication being that shes so rich and distant from those she supposedly "helped" that its laughable, but also even people who liked her cant feel too bad because her retirement will no doubt be on par with the fat cats her and obamski constantly denounce.

I think you could nearly sub any politicians name in there and say they live paradoxically different lives than the people they are 'standing up for'

I'm not bashing your point... but I feel it could be generalized on the larger body of politics as well.

One of my favourite pieces of advice comes from a Caliph during the time of the Islamic/Ottoman Empire and that is paraphrased,

"Any leader who is doing a just and fair job for the people aught to be able to sleep under a tree at night without a guard."

Sadly.... I am not sure when this has happened too many times in history, especially in recent times...

So by saying she is rich and out of touch with average Americans, are you implying that the Republicans are living like or caring about the people you speak of? Because clearly you are enthusiastic about her alternative, which routinely supports massive tax cuts for people who don't need them, and filibusters bills that attempt to get rid of or limit tax loopholes for companies who find jobs in developing economies overseas, rather than employing the good, hard working American people you seem to care about?

Compared to most others here, I am new, yes. However, I do not see the need to ignore ignorance simply because I haven't been here as long as others. That would be counterproductive.

then spend a bit perusing j wonders pearls and you'll quickly find that although he can sometimes spark a thought provoking conversation, it takes a looooooot of text to accomplish that feat.

Pick your battles with J, he can be a...

So he's a moron? Morons can be persuaded. Christ, how else could this country hold an election? It is based upon morons. We shouldn't discriminate here, out of all places.
