Again... how the Democrat Party still exists remains a mystery to me. After years of mulling this over it has become clear... people vote DEM because that is how they've always voted. Based on nothing else. Period.
Bigoted pandering anyone?

“Perhaps the outpouring of sympathy for [the falsely arrested Duke lacrosse players] Reade Seligman, Collin Finnerty and David Evans is just a bit misplaced....As students of Duke University or other elite institutions, these young men will get on with their privileged lives....They are very differently situated in life from, say, the young women of the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.”
-- “Nightline” co-anchor Terry Moran the day after the North Carolina attorney general declared the players innocent of highly-publicized rape charges, April 12.

“You know, I wanted to sit on a jury once, and I was taken off the jury. And the judge said to me, ‘Can, you know, can you tell the truth and be fair?’ And I said, ‘That’s what journalists do.’ And everybody in the courtroom laughed. It was the most hurtful moment I think I’ve ever had.”

“I think a draft produces a better Army than the one we would have with all volunteers, because I think you get average Americans if you have a draft.

-- CBS’s Andy Rooney, MSNBC’s “Imus in the Morning,” March 14.
“Everything you said about [withdrawing some troops from] Iraq yesterday, and everything you will say, is a deception, for the purpose of this one cynical, unacceptable, brutal goal: perpetuating this war indefinitely. War today, war tomorrow, war forever!...A man with any self respect, having inadvertently revealed such an evil secret, would have already resigned and fled the country! You have no remaining credibility about Iraq, sir!...Mr. Bush, our presence in Iraq must end, even if it means your resignation, even if it means your impeachment, even if it means a different Republican to serve out your term, even if it means a Democratic Congress and those true patriots among the Republicans standing up and denying you another penny for Iraq, other than for the safety and safe conduct home of our troops. This country cannot run the risk of what you can still do to this country in the next 500 days.”
-- MSNBC “Countdown” anchor Keith Olbermann
