Let's Not Be So Hard on Armstrong Williams
Maybe he needed the $240,000 to help pay off that sexual harassment claim!

2. I'm not interested in Armstrong Williams at all...
I'm interested in the illegal use of tax money to promote the scrubbies agenda.

3. I would much rather
that money be spent on buying books for kids. Or -it's more than enough to air condition my school.

5. He needed some man-love to keep him from sinning before marriage!
From the article cited above:
"He also said his former boss had told him that he loved him, but somehow that didn't make him gay. Armstrong supposedly needed affection because he wanted to stay celibate heterosexually until he got married."

Ah, the sacrifices a virtuous man must make to guard his virginity.

Now that Armstrong lost his job, maybe Bush will hire him on to direct Abstinence Education.

7. I agree, he really did believe in all that shit, thats why the price
so low to do the commercial. He really has a heart, and it cushions him while he sits at his desk.

9. I imagine him and Clarence "Uncle" Thomas are good friends
Williams is a typical example of the philosophy some of the cable channels seem to have in their hiring practices, if they hire a black pundit then they must be a conservative Republican. Ever notice how many have this political leaning? When in the real world blacks support the Dems by a huge ratio, like 8 to 1 or so.

10. They do the same thing with the (very few) gay pundits.
Gay conservatives could hold their national convention in a phone booth, but whenever a news outfit wants the "gay perspective" on something they always turn to Andrew Sullivan.
