Why should anyone care about someone who hasn't uttered a word in over year.

In the other hand you bring up a good point: why is FOX not reporting this?

"McCain was trying to use me. I happened to be the face of middle Americans. It was a ploy."

Wurzelbacher was appearing at an event benefiting a Pennsylvania Republican state representative on Saturday.

"John McCain is no public servant," Wurzelbacher told the gathering, Detrow reports.

He then reportedly went on to announce that his enmity towards the 2008 GOP presidential candidate is so high that he no longer backs Sarah Palin -- because she is supporting the Arizona Republican’s re-election bid.
How dim is his bulb if he only now realizes he got used by a desperate campaign? McCain trotted his name out there like he birthed the guy.

He has ever reason to sue the state.

How would you like all your records accessed and then released for no other reason then asking a person running for president of this country a question

I am willing to bet you would be screaming from the roof tops had your info been snooped into and then released to the media to smear you for no other reason then asking a question

Lets not sit here and pretend we wouldnt be heated to the highest level had this been us

Maybe because no one really cares the campaign is over

You make a comment about why should someone care and then thing Fox should care. Makes total sense

In real life that was one woman, who looked into his records because he was a new celebrity. (I know it's a different story in Fantasyland.) She got fired.

That's what "on the other hand" means.

That one women was working for the state of Ohio and used state computers to do that search.

He isnt a celebrity and that isnt a reason to search someones records. We have a right to privacy in this country

Do you think she got fired because she did something that was acceptable?

Whatever....
Or maybe they're reporting it simply because it's controversial.

His bulb is no brighter and no dimmer than a lot of the citizenry. But that McCain used him is just one more reason why I don't like McCain (or other career politicians). They will use whomever or whatever to further their goals, regardless of the consequences to others. Remember the stacks of FBI files found on Hillary's desk? Do you think she was looking for resumes and considering appointments for Bill's White House staff?

First sentence - right, I know. Second & third sentences - He was a celebrity then. Fourth sentence - what? Uh, no.

Why would you assume I approved of it? I was pointing out to you the facts. Many right wingers make the same odd jump
