LOL. indeed.
It is easy to change the language of oppression without changing the sociopolitical situation of its victims.

Blue, if/when Obama wins this November, will you please go away and never post about politics again?

Any chance we can get an advance on that?



lol ya'll do know that's just an invitation for him to post more, right? [sarcasm] Ya'll aren't thinking independently-  a coin can land heads, tails...what's the third option?  So he can post more, post less, not post  ??? [sarcasm]

As if we needed further proof that (a) McCain has completely lost his mind and (b) the McCain campaign is playing the race card.  Irony is completely lost on this man!

McCain keeps pounding on John Lewis statement

He said in an interview with a Florida TV station today that the Georgia congressman's invocation of George Wallace and Birmingham amounted to "the most outrageous and disgraceful thing that Iíve seen in American politics."

McCain also compared his denunciation of the over-the-line statements of GOP party officials about Obama to the Democrat's relative silence on Lewis.

ďThere have been statements made that Iíve had to repudiate by certain GOP operatives or apparatchiks," McCain said.  "Congressman Lewis is one of the most respected and admired men in America."

Perhaps not the best way to inspire your own party three weeks out from Election Day ó apparatchiks! ó but it gets the point across.
That's cool how you referenced a case.

It's not working, b-dubs.  I hope you realize that screeds like yours are ruining John McCain's name for all of history.
