89. Last word from me and then I'm out....
....looks like this could go on all night....so I'll sum up, and then be gone....

...I can see you're fond of analogies about rape and stealing purses...but let me chime in with one of my own....

...I say he "kind of asked for it", yes indeed a choice of words which has obviously touched a nerve with you, and I'm sorry for that.
Would you not agree, being a progressive thinker yourself, that Karl Rove "kind of asked for it" ('it' here being the shit hitting the fan)when he confirmed/leaked the identity of a CIA agent to the press?? Or, is the term "kind of asked for it" strictly reserved for situations involving short-skirted women 'deserving' rape or forgetful women who leave their purses behind 'deserving' to get their purse stolen??

Give me a fucking break. And honestly, as I write this I'm pissed off at myself for even getting sucked into such a stupid, tangential argument having virtually nothing to do with walldude's original post.
I feel bad for the guy, for what happened to him. Just like I have felt bad for myself in the past, when I goofed off at work once (playing cards instead of doing my job), knowing that my boss could return at any moment. Guess what? He did, and he told me and my other goofing-off coworkers to "get back to work, or expect to be fired within the hour!!"

And yes....I "kind of asked for it"....ya gotta problem with that??


:applause:
