51. That was a conversational statement. I could have posted it to the OP,
Edited on Wed Feb-18-09 03:26 PM by Quantess
but on a whim, I posted it as a reply to yours. I wasn't being rude or nasty, I was just offering my opinion that Bristol Palin's communication skills were being critiqued too harshly, and unfairly. I could have posted to the OP just as easily, but, I ended up posting to yours. Can't handle that?

Why do people even bother posting comments about a video that they haven't seen? And then, get nasty when someone disagrees with their opinion of what they didn't even see?
