Poll question: Should McCain as VP threads be banned at DU?
I choose 2 and might add that we don't need that bitch on OUR Democratic ticket!

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

If people want to talk about it, they should be able to. It's easy enough to ignore...

on edit: And I look awful in a tutu.

2. yes, noone likes them, and they just piss off everyone in GD
even more. It's like dropping blood in the water with sharks (i'm guilty as well), everyone gets worked up into a frenzy rebutting the pure insanity of that notion for the 1,000th time. YES!

3. You'd think there would be enough pride so we would ban them voluntarily
Its even stupider than the Hillary for VP mania. Kerry's not gonna offer and McCain would turn him down if he did. So whats the fascination?

5. They're so incredibly pointless.
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 12:34 PM by Padraig18
McCain categorically removed himself from consideration today on NBC's Today show, and also said he would not switch parties. In his words, "It will never happen."

I see no sesne in discussing something that has absolutely ZERO chance of ever happening. :shrug:

6. I started a discussion on McCain in GD....
having not seen the topic before. I'm no fan, believe me, but the vitriol that resulted reminds me how little difference there often is between too many of us and the freepers.

Open mind ALWAYS. Beatdown censorship NEVER. This is what makes us better than them.

7. Do you know much about McCain's past record?
He would not be worthy of us.

10. DeFinately YES - ban them.
Not really. I don't really understand the reasoning behind Dems wanting McCain for VP. I almost supported him in 2000, based on what he was saying in his speeches, but changed my mind quickly when I looked at the position papers on his campaign website. He's not a radical like *, but he IS a republican - through and through.

14. Please Note: The is the DU Lounge, and I am not a MOD.
This is a protest thread to let those that think McCain for VP is a viable option.

15. I agree with you
And this doesn't sound like a protest thread, it sounds more like an anti-free speech thread.

18. So pro-McCain for VP is free speech but anti-McCain for VP
threads is anti-free speech? I'll take that as another vote for me as a fascist!

19. I didn't mean that
I just think that banning posts that aren't made to offend anyone is silly.

16. I was accused of being a fascist for starting this poll, see my post #7
in this thread:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

And see my fascism in action!

Note all other posts of mine in that thread were post-fascist accusation related activities.
