Sadly, you are probably right. I forgot where I read it, but there was a study where women consistently polled higher on candidates they thought were attractive physically. Partially explaining Edward's appeal with women. We're a very superficial society these days and looks matter.
Oh Jesus, don't tell me you believe that Clark being "relieved of command" had anything to do with his performance as supreme commander. That's a GOP election 2004 talking point. It's known to democrats that Clark's removal was a casualty of internal politics within the Joint Chiefs of Staff -- particularly the Chairman.
Next you'll be telling me John Kerry didn't deserve his medals.
This is why I believe we should be doing everything we can to raise quotas and help these people enter the system legally. Make it attractive for them to apply for entry and expedite the process, perhaps even offer limited federal services and job placements. The 21st century version of Ellis Island for a new generation of immigrants.
We can benefit businesses, national security, and people in need.
He's against illegal immigration? He must be a moderate/conservative democrat then. I do agree that's an important position to take -- I don't understand how anyone can be pro-illegal immigration. We should be finding ways to help more of these people cross over into our system legally.
I take this as a surrender, Gary. I'll check back periodically but I'll keep our flames in the Felmee diary where you started it -- this will be my only post here. Let this be a lesson to you for starting flame wars with someone you can't handle.
I personally asked Jerome by email to intervene one week ago, early on in the African-American thread where you started this same crap elsewhere. I suggested he tell everyone to chill out before it got out of hand. He told me he doesn't have time to police the boards and that we should ignore each other. Which I did until you restarted this flamewar in the Felmee thread because I suspect your ego was still bruised.
Lastly, please stop accusing me of authoring your weblog. Even if I were to do that, it would be considered parody and satire, therefore completely legal.
To everyone else, I won't respond to your attacks here. You might as well keep it in the other diary and not spread the fire throughout the site.
