Anyone hear Wm. Bennett say Dems had far more sex scandals
than Repugs? I was listening with half an ear (Blitzer's Situation Room) and didn't hear the beginning, but assume it was in regards to the Foley scandal. It will probably be repeated at 6:00 CST.

1. Why should the thoroughly discredited "Bookie of Virtue"
be tagged as an adviser on anything. CNN used poor judgment when they hired this corrupt Republican. :(

2. I agree, but he still influences Repugs.
I just felt that if he said what I think he said, it should be hammered on to CNN...send them the list of Repugs that have been convicted.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't recall many sex crimes with the Dems. Maybe I need to be corrected.

6. It always matters, but not as much with us Democrats because ...
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 05:33 PM by ShortnFiery
we don't get all high and mighty about being "the party of traditional family values."

We represent the average working (usually wage slave) American, not some deluded 1950s image of what they THINK our values should be.

We try to care for the worker and not get into his lifestyle or personal life as long as he/she does not harm anyone or society in general. Or at least, that's the kind of Democrat I am. :shrug:

Yes, don't matter Right Now as much because The Republicans control The Congress ... it's the Republicans who were all pompous about "High Values." :nuke:

15. He still influences because media protected him on his DOMINATRIX fetish
that they knew about when he was caught for his gambling addiction.


Now that Bennett goes to his Opus Dei gatherings and gets his beatings there, instead, he's allowed to get in front of a camera again.

18. It only seems like Dems have more sex scandals
because the Republicans keep rehashing Ted Kennedy and Chappaquiddick for the past 37 YEARS!

unclean just hearing him and I was, after all, foaming at the mouth and screaming at the TV. Isn't this the asshole who lost hundreds of thousands of dollars gambling and who likes to hire dominatrices to flog his fat hairy ass and yank on his tiny flaccid dick in the vain hope of getting it bigger than a child's crayon?

7. Far more sex.
It may have seemed scandalous to him. Far fewer scandals true scandals, however. Manufactured scandals, are perhaps, an entirely different matter...

13. The kind of unchallenged crap that RWers spew on the tube 24/7...
They just keep putting the lies out there, over and over and over, until the average sheep could recite them in its sleep. :grr:

14. But we could have a concerted effort to flood the media
with proof the Repugs are wrong, couldn't we? CNN seems to be changing their focus and giving the Dems a more favorable impression/appearance. Why not take advantage of that?
