  •  Is that the best they can do? (4.00)
    A youthful indiscretion that could turn up in any of our lives, were the well-funded character assassination machine to descend on us?

    I take it they're dropping the flagrant lies they planted in Mr. Kalotra's mouth, then.  Why should these crooks and liars and hypocrites set a standard of perfection in those criticizing them?  I should think a standard of truth ought to be enough.  That's a standard they don't have a prayer of meeting themselves, so they shouldn't expect more of anyone else.

    •  Well, Sen. Biden at least should be sympathetic (4.00)
      Didn't he borrow Neil Kinnock's childhood for a brief presidential run?

      There are very few perfect people in the world--except George W. Bush, of course. He's never made a mistake.

      As for me, well, let's see, there was that handful of years in my 20s when I tried to play DC off against Ohio in the hope of not having to pay taxes to either one. I hope I'd have the guts to stand up to Bolton and the White House knowing that and a few other embarrassments would come to light.


      •  Oh my God (4.00)
        I'd hate to have those creeps and thugs snooping around in my past life.  I'd finally have to move to Canada.

        That's precisely why we have to admire and defend Melody.  She has the balls I don't.

      •  i planned to raised this point (none)
        I wonder how people plagiarize.  Perhaps one chooses a text to lift the main points from, and then he/she succumbs to haste etc.  

        Well, it is not like Melody killed someone as a teenage drunken driver.  Very wise to raise the point pre-emptively, we are dealing with very ruthless people with a noise machine.

      •  Yes, Biden did -- and so did MLK (none)
        And we have a national holiday for MLK.
        (And he did so in divinity school!)
