Stupid is as stupid does.....but again, I ask, what would the media be doing if a Republican had said that.....but wait!......what are the chances of a Republican saying that?


DiNiro is going to be disappointed however.....may be too soon in his opinion, but it's going to happen nonetheless....

Probably the same thing they're doing now: some of them baying for his head in hopes of making a scandal out of it, some of them ignoring it because they don't think it's worth their time, and some of them reporting it in a reasonably balanced manner.

I'll say...it's certainly a  wonder if a liberal ever bucks the trend....you may not care but apparently others (who don't mean anything) think so.....



By the way, there is actually nothing offensive about the joke...

Yeah, but Gingrich felt the need to try to make hay out of it...


It's much ado about nothing, but still I wonder if the MSM would have made the hay had it been a Republican.....

Sez you.


I can understand why Mrs. Obama was offended.


I hope I live long enough to see the day when no one will give a care what color the president and family are...or whether or not they're religious.


THAT will represent some actual social progress.
