Gee, the Wash Post is spewing outrageous demogoguery too, Rick-http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/08/07/AR2009080703043.html?hpid=opinionsbox1Comment Posted By Kate On 8.08.2009 @ 19:54
John McCain ran the kind of campaign Frum, Brooks etc have advocated. And guess what, he lost!!!! Why do you want to replicate their ideas Rick?
Your use of the term "freeperland" says oodles about who you really are. The disdain shown for conservative Republicans by Frum,Brooks and now sadly yourself, show who are really intolerant. Sadly, I have lost a great deal of respect for you. As one who reads "freeperland" frequently I laud all types of conservatives. Its too bad you don't.
John McCain ran a very bad campaign - worse than Kerry and far worse than Al Gore. He didn't follow anybody's advice nor did he run his campaign the way any professional would have wanted. He lost because he was a horrible candidate - as inspiring as a jello mold and as clueless as a tapir.
The Freepers have come to this site many times and have shown that they don't know what a conservative is. They are mindless parrots, mouthing their talking points and calling anyone who disagrees with them a liberal. It is apparent that they have no knowledge of political labels and can only spout hate. If you respect them, I have to assume you are as ignorant as they are.

Rick, I confess to being confused. I see you are eagerly anticapating those pesky leftist Euro judges pursuing former US officials and jailing them. This pursuit will apparently be for the crime of successfully preventing another attack on the US by authorizing harsh interrogation techniques against known terrorist leaders and planners. Oh, yes and for being Republican.
Nice touch, comparing Ashcroft to Albert Speers. So is Bush Pinochet or Hitler.Comment Posted By kate On 10.04.2008 @ 20:22
The opening paragraph that implies that Rove, Cheney and Libby sat around and decided to out Plame to discredit Wilson is wrong.
The facts are that Wilson was telling people that Cheney sent him and everyone was trying to figure out who sent the unqualified idiot.
His wife sent him...very covert of her.Comment Posted By Kate On 30.05.2007 @ 18:13
Rick, your conclusion is right...Ware needs to go "home". But you attach wtoo positive motives to Mr. Ware. You contend that the war has gotten to him, causing him to be cynical, perhaps drink too much. Problem with that is I never hear him condeming his insurgent comrades for their violence. He is full of admiration for them.
No Mr. Ware loves, loves it. He loves the terrorists, admires them...the only ones he hate are the US soldiers and military.
So, I would argue that Ware is "home" already. He needs to be separated before he defects.Comment Posted By Kate On 3.04.2007 @ 03:47
When I first read the headline I read "Iranians" vice Iraqi and I was so happy. But this was a depressing post, but I'm afraid not far from what will happen.
The US can't outsource world leadership, the west in taking it on the chin. Israel last summer, the Brits now.
Maybe when we have a Democratic president, the media and left will let us take this threat seriously. I see the capitulation to the Islamists fanatics by the west ending badly, with the loss of a major western city.
And while there are things I admire about President Bush...his backbone and courage, the bare minimum requirement for a President needs to be the ability to deliver a speech from the Oval Office.Comment Posted By Kate On 1.04.2007 @ 16:46
Rick, I am no fan of Gonzales. However, I would be careful of any news on this case since it seems to be coordinated media/DNC hit piece.
Because of that, and only that, I would refuse to have Gonzales resign. We can't keep giving this coordination victories.Comment Posted By Kate On 25.03.2007 @ 09:38
No, Rick. I did not find her sympathetic. Sorry. Sympathetic was hearing my father moan downstairs when he heard that his son was killed in Vietnam. I will save my sympathy for the wounded and dead in this war and the wounded and dead from 9/11.
Maybe I'm not sympathetic because as soon as this broke Val and Joe wanted to know who would play them in the movie. They are careless people, silly people and I feel much more sympathetic to Scooter Libby, who will spend time in jail because this agent was much more interested in being a DNC agent than a CIA agent.
Sympathey, indeed.Comment Posted By Kate On 17.03.2007 @ 14:41
Rick-Scooter Libby is not going to jail.Comment Posted By Kate On 7.03.2007 @ 06:06
Rick, thanks for the clarification. I was having some difficulty understanding this story but a botched hostage operation makes the most sense.
I hope to see the Iranian "leader" fall this year. If the surge is successful, I expect that to happen. He is certainly making the powerful clerics angry.Comment Posted By Kate On 28.01.2007 @ 15:58
