Why You Shouldn’t Vote

I understand the message this column is espousing: "Vote for the RINO, just because he's NOT the Democrat!" And I already have in early voting. But the inverse is true as well: "Vote for the TEA Party candidate, you establishment Republicans, even if you have to hold YOUR nose to do it!" The establishment Repubs for some reason can't get this through their heads. If a TEA party candidate wins the primary, they sigh, roll their eyes, and refuse funding a "lost" race. Yet they want everyone else to vote for their milquetoast candidate that managed to squeak by. Derek, you swear to me that you will fully, publicly support the TEA party candidates the same as you do the establishment Repubs and I'll do the same. Deal?

Dear Ms. Saunders, If you believe that the mayor had no input on the subpoenas, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. Seriously. Tell me that you are a better investigative reporter than this column appears. Sincerely, a Conservative skeptic
I will agree, with one caveat: sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander! I'll hold my nose and vote for the milquetoast RINOs (now that the primaries are over), and YOU vote for the TEA party conservatives who won THEIR primaries. AND they need to be monetarily supported by the NRC. Period. End of sentence. If there is even a hint of waffling over someone who is not an "establishment Republican", then it's over. War will be declared and the TEA party will come out swinging, loud and strong!

No, gw, ALWAYS vote for the Republican candidate, whether YOUR guy won the primary or not. YOU always want more conservative people to vote for your milquetoast candidate, but you don't want to vote for the TEA Party candidate who beat your guy in the primary. Can't have it both ways and maintain your credibility. Sauce for the goose, and all that...

I hereby volunteer 20 hours per week to place those warning labels on those dangerous breasts! After all, it's my civic duty...
Someone needs to come to court to defend herself with impeachment paperwork for the judge. He swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States... and he's actively working against it.
Gosh, Mark, if you had given citations for the numbers you threw out there, there might be something to refute. But as you pulled them from your third point of contact, there's not really any reason to respond, is there?
Marc, except for the report of the "very expensive" medicine that had to be kept near freezing to give to the two missionaries as quickly as possible, which appears to have saved their lives.... I think I would call that a cure, myself.

Doug, I was a substitute teacher for a while, and had a student in one of the advanced math classes who had all the appearances of a "gang-banger". One time, after passing out a 3-page, front & back worksheet, I announced that when they had completed it, I would allow them to use their cell phones in class to text or play games. He looked astonished, then quickly finished all six sheets in record time, far faster than anyone else in class. Suspecting he had "pencil-whipped" the sheets, I checked them immediately. Surprisingly, every answer was correct with work shown! I asked him about that after class and he said, "Aw, you know, I gotta keep up my street creds!" How sad that he had to hide his talent most of the time so he could fit in with his neighborhood...

Loyal Dem, you are on fire this morning! Some of the best satire, by far, that I have ever seen! Excellent!
