46. The BOG???
lmaoooo I could say something here in the reverse, but I won't.

I think I maybe posted in the Barack Obama Group one time, and that was ages ago. Nice try though, really. :eyes:

Back to why I think your hyperbole is out of bounds:

I really shouldn't have to explain it, especially on a Democratic Site. But alas, since you don't get it, I will.

You are dangerously close to accusing a Democrat, of using RW tactics, therefore they must be RW. Is that what you mean when you put quotation marks around centrist?

Then a post below, you tell a DU member, if the shoe fits, wear it.
