Am I the only one this happens to: The more I listen to Hillary the more I find I FUCKING HATE HER!!! DAMN, that voice is really like the screaming of dying pigs......

Huckabee has me really, really scared. If you look at the financials for all the candidates on CNN, you can see how little Huckabee has been spending or even has and is doing exceptionally well.

While I know that its only from 30 September, so hard to tell the total spending now, it is still pretty incredible that someone so far behind financially could even be considered to win the first polls.

Fucking hicks.

I am so tired of Hilary playing the "experience" card.

Go Obama go!

Intelligent people become followers of strange irrational leaders/theories (Ron Paul, Jim Jones , 9/11 Truthers) because they have been trained to value anything different or outside the mainstream. Someone really needs to tell folks that they don't get bonus points just by being different or taking he path "less traveled by."

Reason and logic trump being "different."

Funny, Cato, the more I hear Clinton, the more I like her. The more I hear Obama blather on without saying anything, the less I like him.

I agree. Hillary's winning her way into second choice for me. Obama's heading away from my second choice vote. He's really not saying anything even if he does have great hands. John Edwards has been speaking my language from the beginning and much as I'd truly like to vote for a woman or an African American, he's the only one I've been donating to and my top choice tomorrow by far. Kick some ass John!

I feel as Cato does. And I know we are not alone because I can tell that in this video H has tried her hardest to sound other than her natural voice. She's trying to be soooothing, as though she's trying to talk a crazy dangerous imbecile into putting the gun down. But it's not working because this crazy dangerous imbecile still wants to use it to stop that noise.
