    ...nor their ideology (although I certainly could have with ease). There an plenty of Democratic crooks as well. But why much you be such a "Debbie Downer"? Can't I just enjoy a brief period of gloating before being smacked with the "let's be fair" stick? Come on. It's just an indictment, not a public hanging.

    •  OK, now that I know you're just trash-talking (0+ / 0-)

      when you say this:

      Tough to imagine how your Republican colleague can maintain his affiliation in the face of what he's been unearthing

      •  Trash-talking? (0+ / 0-)

        No. Not at all. I'm not even sure what that expression means. It has something to do with sports, right? I was being serious. I'm not sure how that sentence gets interpreted as some kind of insult on a Left of Left site...I meant no offense. You must care about this guy a great deal to be so sensitive, bravo on you.

            The frequency with which some posters here jump to ridiculous conclusions about some kind of hidden motives of people they don't know - in some cases persisting in believing their assumptions about someone's actual opinion in the face of repeated contradiction - is truly disturbing.

        •  OY! (0+ / 0-)

          Because I say you were trash-talking, you think I'm a Republican now? I'm just shaking my head. Making a silly statement like the one I quoted, while keeping in mind that Democrats have also been involved in scandals that haven't caused reform Democrats to leave the party, amounts to - in your words - "gloating" trash-talking. If you insist on ascribing ridiculous motives to me, I will cut off further communication with you as useless and not worth my time.
