Good post.

I generally noticed that the extreme partisans around here when talking about non-political things seem about 20 iq points higher. When it's politics though, brains shut off, they do-believe-excuse whatever they are told by their masters. It's a little scary how stupid they get.

You know what....I agree.....the Republicans do have a candidate problem...

This is how it looks to me.....Republicans run politicians for office....and face it....we do not really like politicians.

The Democrats....they are smarter in a way....they run celebrities.....people LIKE celebrities....at least the recognize them.

But, what do we end up with???

Celebrities in office......we all lose.

Yeah...let's ignore the fact that you voted in the same idiots as everyone else.
Clearly you're speaking only of and for yourself because most of us with common sense and any degree of decorum and social responsibility don't reveal our votes.

Idiot is as idiot does!

I'm not surprised. But I figure the ignorant on the right cancel out the ignorant on the left and vice versa.
