Senator Palpatine had TONS of experience too!
and look what happened there!

do you honestly think you dont fully understand Politics until you get into Washington and sit there for years? Is it like D.C. is some sort of vaginal cavity that gives you life that until then you didnt know about?

We are all born with certain abilities and knowledge. I'm sure we all have older relatives that are foolish.

Dont try to tell me for one second that knowing how to lie cheat and steal, how to make friends with ass holes that can cover you ass while you lie to the American public has anything to do with 'EXPERIENCE'. Hillarys experience argument is a load of horseshit. Bush, Cheney and Rumsfield rendered that argument INVALID.

2. So, now we've moved on to fictional characters?
Could we at least find someone real - and maybe even...alive - to compare our candidates to?

8. Some of these fictional characters have more depth and complexity...
,,,than our real-life politicians, unfortunately.

11. A fair assessment
Rick Santorum, for example, has about as much depth as a cardboard cutoff of himself.

6. Not yet. Right now, she's only Senator Palpatine.
Edited on Thu Jan-10-08 11:19 PM by TwilightZone
When she gets elected, *then* she's Emperor.

Edit: isn't "elected Emperor" an oxymoron?

17. Star Wars Democrats
I'd say that Lieberman looks more like Palpatine.

Byrd reminds me of C3PO.

Robert Riech bears a striking resemblance to R2D2.

Pelosi would be the spitting image of Princess Leia, if she had those cinnamon bun braids on the side of her head.

Ted Kennedy looks a lot like Chewbacca.

Zell Miller IS Salacious Crumb.

Gore is Obi Wan.

Who else...

15. I stopped reading at "vaginal cavity" and I can't believe I got that far.
Have a nice day.

16. There is no correlation between performance and experience
We have examples of both being good and bad Presidents.

Frankly, the people making the experience argument are mentally deficient or intentional disruptors.
