Will Kucinich betray progressives by visiting Ford or going to his funeral?
As has been well established by the people, anyone who pays any respect to Ford is supporting the pardoning of corrupt presidents (and thus working with the Republicans to prevent the chimpeachment) and also the establishment of the Project for a New American Century (do a Google search if you're an ignoramus) by giving jobs to Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld (don't give me that shit it was thirty years ago, it's well-planned; wake up).

Do you think Kucinich will betray progressives by participating in any memorializing of this kingpin architect of corruption and treason?

NOTE: This post is sarcastic.

2. If you put this thread next to one that accuses people...
...who pay some respects to Ford as "un-progressive", this one would be the least divisive! :woohoo:

6. Give it time, it's still early
and for the sake of comity ;-) I would agree that if there are "progressive litmus-test posts" over giving respect to Ford are idiotic. Can you PM me a link to one if you have time?

:toast:

5. I agree.
I will not feel betrayed if he attends the funeral. I trust him to make the right decision for himself.

7. This is bullshit
It won't mean anything if Kucinich goes to Ford's funeral. People in government do things like that. You show your lack of sophistication and knowledge in this realm by posting such a ridiculous message.

I'm sorry but I really lose it sometimes with people who have no knowledge of how the protocols work. Call me "Inside the Beltway" evil if you must, I still go to anti-war protests and some of you younger bloggers can't be bothered with doing that.

Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 06:11 PM by Lydia Leftcoast
as my Old Country grandmother would have said.

And with some posters, looking for sticks appears to be an obsession.
