I think you mean Billion for the China stimulus package...

That article on the Secret Service findings just makes me sick. It's basically a confirmation of what we were worried about when those speeches started.

This quote...

Irate John McCain aides... claim Mrs Palin took it upon herself to question Mr Obama's patriotism, before the line of attack had been cleared by Mr McCain

...really made me think that the McCain camp is trying to do everything it can to make it sound like McCain had nothing to do with any of the shitty stuff that went on. He's trying very hard to salvage his reputation, but I'm not buying what he's selling.

SLOGs persistent misogyny has made it "ok" to verbally abuse and denigrate women.

Bailo, you're an imbecile. So is Sarah Palin.

See? Equality!

@4: LOL!

Exactly. If McCain had such a big problem with those smears, he would have shut it down immediately, at least if he's as strong a leader as he'd like people to believe. Since he didn't, he gets to take the blame for it.

I am soooo tired of all this whining on Slog about oppressed "minorities" such as gays, blacks and women. No one on Slog ever says anything about the most truly oppressed minority of all, namely, my own. That is, white male fundamentalist Christian conservative heterosexuals. When is Slog going to stand up for our rights? Huh?

John, do you have any smallpox-infected blankets handy in your closet? I just ran out.

You're a fool, Bailo. You're solidly in the majority.

Posted by That annoying 'interest troll' | November 9, 2008 2:23 PM

I'm smelling a stinky sock (puppet) at 7, because while I think Bailo is a moron, I doubt he's THAT moronic. Could I be wrong?

Sock puppet or no, when you can articulate some actual rights your oppressed majority currently doesn't have, that other minorities DO, then we'll see about standing up for them.
