  •  Can we get a pressmember to ask her something? (4.00)
    I want to ask her if she approves of insinuating that people who served in the military are unpatriotic.  I want to ask her if she thinks that cutting education funding is a good thing.  If she's gonna start complaining about the treatment of her husband, she should have to be made to answer questions about his administration.  

    What other questions should she be asked?  How is her boyfriend?  What was the booking process like?  How many times did she have to hold up Dubya's head so he wouldn't choke himself to death on his own vomit?  

    •  I like the question about her boyfriend (3.75)
      If Hillary had killed somebody with her car, you know the press would be all over it and never let up, even if it happened when she was a teenager.
      •  Laura Bush's ex-boyfriend (3.66)

        When Laura Bush was 17 years old she ran a stop-sign and "accidentally" killed her ex-boyfriend by crashing into his car.

        I suppose it's possible it was a random accident that just happened to be her crashing into the car of the guy who'd dumped her.  But given the Clintons have had every ridiculous conspiracy in the world floated, I wouldn't mind seeing a bit more investigation into it.

        •  I heard her talking about it on the Today Show (4.00)
          Katie Couric didn't blink an eye, and they just talked about how it was a "hard time" in her life.  I was like, "WTF???  She killed a guy with her car??"  

          I'm sure it was just an accident, but WOW, that's pretty unusual.  Not many of us can say we've killed someone with our cars.  She's probably the first First Lady who can say that!

          •  MANY PEOPLE KILL WITH CARS (4.00)
            over 40,000 people die every year in car accidents. thousands of the people who caused those accidents survived. cars kill far more than guns in the USA.

            if you think its an oil war in iraq, then every time you drive you must know you are killing iraqis. if you think the global warming is man made, then every time you drive you must realize you are killing all life.

            please drive less. parking is the safest way to drive.

        •  Why not Start a Rumor (4.00)
          Why not start a rumor and say Hillary did kill one of her ex-boyfriends with her car.  Let the press run with it, and then say, oops, it was Laura, not Hillary.

          Watch the press then say, oh Laura, well then, I guess it must be okay then.

          •  Why rumor, let's spread some truth (none)
            Hey, I've got an idea.

            Let's spread around that Democrat icon and grand inquisitor Ted Kennedy not only killed someone with his car but actually drowned them too.

            If you add the fact that he was cheating on his wife, driving drunk, failed to report an accident, tried to cover up an accident along with allowing a woman to suffocate underwater - THAT would be a story.

      •  According to Republicans I know, (4.00)
        it is perfectly appropriate to accidentally kill someone as long as you don't kill a person of the opposite sex to whom you are not married.

        But if you are married, it is unacceptable to have an accident, like Teddy Kennedy did, when someone dies. A good Republican will bring this up at every opportunity whenever "Democratic" (that is, non-family) values are mentioned.

        But if you are Republican and kill someone, it's okay. And, just in case you don't know it, married Republicans don't fool around because they are good, virtuous, Christian, patriotic, and family-valued persons.

        Gag me with a spoon.

      •  BUSH was a Virgin until 2001..! (4.00)
        Dumbya told Laura that He wanted to remain a VIRGIN
        until He became PRESIDENT....
        So He could SCREW ALL Americans at Once..!!

    •  now, now.... (none)
      Little Laura is just "standing by her man."

      Hillary herself said so.

      cheney bush guard thy arse
      rover dies upon thy hearse!

    •  Along the lines of your question (4.00)
      Did she think that the swiftboaters were out of bounds?

      If she did, what did she do to stop it.

      If not why not.

      •  SwiftBoat Crap (4.00)
        She most certainly did not have a problem with it at the time.  In fact, I explicitly remember a quote from her that incensed me at the time where she was asked if the attacks against Kerry were fair.  She said something to the effect that her husband was being attacked to, so yes she thought it was fair.

        Here we go, from Atrios:
            Do you think these swift-boat ads are unfair to John Kerry?

            Do I think they're unfair? Not really.

    •  Ask her if... (none)
      She is going to get some surgery to get rid of her "smoker's wrinkles"?
      •  My Prescription: 2 Packs a Day! (none)
        WTF?!?!?! I mean, she knows he employs super liars and Hillary is the target of all things GOP. Or maybe she doesn't know? Perhaps if she just sat down and read one of about a 100 "I Hate Hillary" books... and that was before she was elected to anything.

        Laura should just feel lucky that Dems don't have a Lucien Goldberg or Linda Tripp screwing with her hubby.

      •  Is she also going to have her Head shrunk (none)
        so people will not think she is a relative of George Lopez?
    •  Get your facts straight (none)
      I believe the question was if Queen Hillary's comment about it being one of the "worst administrations in history" was ok, political or out of bounds.  She considered it out of bounds and political.

      Considering who was making the statement about one of the worst administrations in history, I would agree that it was out of bounds.  Talk about the pot and the kettle.

      What does patriotism and all of the other red herrings you threw in have to do with Laura Bush's comment about what Hillary said?  

      Another opportunity to Bush bash.  I hope you we can elect another worthy Republican so you and yours don't lose your favorite pasttime.

      •  Yes, I bash Bush (none)
        I admit it.  

        The point was that if she is going to start accusing Hillary Clinton of being political, she had better be ready to answer some pointed questions.

        Of course I'll bash Bush whenever I get a chance.  If you don't agree that he is the worst President in a long, long time, I'm sorry.  

        Is this what trolling has come to?  Looking at days old comments?

        •  Definition of a troll (none)
          Actually, I had to wait 24 hrs to join the party to post a comment.

          As far as trolling, I guess "Comment Bashing" is in the same class as "Bush bashing".  

          Anyone who doesn't agree with you is a troll I suppose.  You obviously represent the majority of the NO Party.

          Nothing constructive to say or do, just NO to everything until a Democrat gets into office.

          After that, anything and everything goes.

          •  No, not really (none)
            Anybody accusing someone of Bush bashing is probably not operating with much objectivity.  

            Bush is not a good president.  He hasn't done anything well.  

            I suppose if you think you can come up with some good things that Bush has done, you're welcome to it.  There aren't many.

            How's that healthcare?  How secure is that pension?  How secure is anything.

            When the answer to every problem is "we need a new PR campaign," you know something is messed up.

          •  I'll make one last point (none)
            Hillary Clinton is an elected representative.  I sure the hell hope she is political.
