Do you think neighborhood safety, voter registration, healthcare, and affordable housing, all grow on trees? They don't. All of these things cost money and nine out of ten times its money from outside these neighborhoods that pays for it.

They asked the question because half of republicans believe it. Hey but half of republicans believe Obama is a muslim that attends a radical pastors church and had the election stolen by a group that no longer exists...where does this alternate universe exist and how can we send them there?

This question was an easy way to show how easy it is to dupe voters with doom and gloom on talk radio.

As opposed to Sarah Palin, who most likely thought the media said a can of corn stole the election. She thought they were covering up for the peas.

How is it "dishonest?" I think it's a very smart way to show how stupid the GOP really is. It was a litmus test that they failed badly. Very telling question, in fact.

crazy woman: He's a muslim!
John McCain: No. He's a good American.
crazy woman: Bbbb- but- he's not- a m-m-m-muslim?
John McCain: No.
crazy woman: (going all quavery) No? NNNN- NNN- No?

The Republicans should have learned a little something from that exchange. But they didn't. it will go unheeded next time, I'm sure. I'm beginning to thin you just can't fix stupid.
