Political Moderate must have the day off.

Graves and Phillips (and Roe), going after those bad, bad, bad birth control pills! Never mind that those pills actually prevent abortions, and let a woman control her own reproductive rights-WHORES all. Remember, Bishop Finn says only prostitutes need an abortion, and only sluts use birth control.

Politcal Moderate Fan

Political Moderate? Where are you? Hurry back, the blogs have 25% less volume without you.

Another PM statement. I did not realize until a couple of days ago how old you were. That would explain your occasional cantakerous posts. It would also explain why you don't agree with me 100% of the time, must be the early onset of senility.

Sam Graves is an idiot. Quiet down Sammy Boy. Your Sugar Daddy Tom DeLay isn't around anymore to protect you. You should just operate in relative anonymity. If Barnes challenged you, you'd lose. Peace be with you Sammy "Send Our Brave Young Men & Women to their" Graves.

You guys are great. It's interesting to discover that Sam Graves is out of his political coma.
Craig, I've been nice lately, you've been the onery one on these posts.
FarRight and my Fan, nice to hear from you. That's more response than Sam gives his constituents.

"Craig, I've been nice lately, you've been the onery one on these posts."

Only when necessary. And if I hadn't been out of town this weekend I really would have went off on some ot the threads.

I can get to sleep tonight now that I know Political Moderate is okay.

Interesting how these things become like a community. A very partisan, dysfunctional community, but a community none the less.

I am going to pose somthing that may spark some comments. As a Republican who thought that the impeachment of Clinton was over the line and a waste of taxpayer dollars, I am going to ask this. Why the Heck is this trial with Scooter Libby going on? And before all you left wing kooks jump up and down, the "leaker" was Richard Armitage, and he was never charged. Patrick Fitgerald knew that Armitage was the "leaker" and continued the investigation. So Libby is being accused of withholding information to a prosecutor when the prosecutor already had the information. Even if Libby is guilty, this is almost entrapment (I know not technically, but you get the point). So not only was my tax money wasted continuing the investigation when it should have been closed, but now it is being wasted in a frivolous prosecution.

For the record, I feel the same way about the Barry Bonds investigation.

Political Moderate

Before I ponder your question craig (and I will) I want to mention that my travels this week brings me to spend several days in Salt Lake City.
Last night I listened to the republican Governor of this very conservative state, discuss some of the thorny issues facing all American citizens.
I appreciated his conservative slant. I greatly appreciated his candor that solutions to so many of our mutual concerns involves compromise and keeping our eye on the objective regardless of party persuassion.
FarRight is correct, and I commend you for saying, that these blogs become idea factories. I enjoy the give and the take which we all endure as we consider the issues challenging us.
Last night, the democratic response was polite, civil, and balanced.
Wow. What would that type of reaction be like in our area?

Political Moderate

craig, I'm a moderate, not a left wing nut, so I'll ask the question whether this isn't a diversion. You're correct that the issue feels like entrapment...orchestrated in my questioning mind...to divert the heat off of Rove or Cheney or POTUS???

craig

PM, I can see where you are coming from (and from some others I would question them asking your question) and I have thought about that. What you are saying is that you think that Libby is the fall guy, somewhat like Oliver North. But why put the special prosecutor there in the first place if all you are going to do is get Libby on some bogus charge? From my understanding, he was considered non-partisan upon his appointment so he shouldn't be looking out for the interests of either party. IMO, this trial is simply for Fitzpatrick to show that all his work actually did get an indictment.

craig

I meant Fitzgerald.

"IMO, this trial is simply for Fitzpatrick to show that all his work actually did get an indictment."

I'll let you know in 50 years when the papers get declassified.

In the mean time, what about Barry Bonds? Another "victim" of an over aggressive media and legal system wanting to make a name?

craig

I wouldn't necessarily call a pampered millionaire athlete a "victim". But the witch hunt on him is definitely a waste of my tax dollars.

craig

"I'll let you know in 50 years when the papers get declassified."

Won't you be giving Methusalah a run for his money by then?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Political Moderate

Yup...
You know, in most cultures, young people like you are taught to revere the wisdom of people like me.
Where did we fail in our attempts to civilize you?
Be nice to old people!

Is southerngirl around?
I haven't read anything from her in a long while.
I miss her point of view...

Has anyone noticed Sam Graves has voted against stem cell research and raising the minimum wage- two things his constiuents voted for? Doesn't that make him out of touch?

Rep. Jane Cunningham

I served in the legislature with Representative Susan Phillips. She is a "lady" in the true sense of the word....a soft spoken professional who always voted her principles and was respected by all. She will be a tremendous asset to Graves, but a loss for the Missouri House of Representatives.

Well hello Ms. Cunningham! Are you still going around the state telling that lie about the number of functionally illiterate kids graduating from the KC School District? Anything to justify those vouchers you so desperately want, eh?
