    I'm not sure what to call that religion anymore. I don't think they should be able to call it Christanity. They certainly aren't Christians. Let's think of a new name.

    I thought Giuliani had prostate cancer at one time; why is he still alive?

    I didn't see, but I heard the report on the news saying that the crowd was pretty silent when McCain -- the only person on stage who has actually been tortured -- expressed his opposition to torture.

    Bloodthirsty lot indeed. Where were they again? South Carolina?

    Heathen atheist liberal doctors can treat prostate cancer rather well (if detected early enough - unfortunately we can probably detect it too well now).

    Because unlike a lot of people on his side of the political spectrum, he knows that prayer won't cure diseases such as cancer and sought medical treatment from a doctor....

    That article excludes the scenario in which the two are responding.

    Certainly that's an important fact.

    Yeah, because alot of people on the right actually follow denominations that don't believe in medicine... Just like every person on the left is a pot smoking hippie who uses abortion as birth control and never works because they live off of welfare checks... We all know where generalizations get us, lets try to make them as littl as possible and when they must be made in an appropriate, less biased manner.

    I was a little shocked at all these wannabee's who stood up and said they would torture like a badge of honor. The Republicans are discraceful these days without a doubt. The audience is as bad, dont these morons know torture is wrong and is why we "had" the Geneva convention? Dont these people know that if we torture that means everyone will? Giulliani was another draft dodger any surprise that the toughest talkers are allways the ones who never served and couldnt be found during Nam?

    I notice you move neatly from "a lot of people" (what's a lot? Hundreds Thousands? Certainly that's true, no?) to "every person on the left"; a very disingenuous maneuver if you ask me. Particularly when you are chastising someone for making generalizations.

    I understand what you are saying about generalizations and how we can easily get carried away with them, but you are unconvincing at best when you try to use that kind of sleight-of-hand.

    Haha! I find it funny that they had to go to South Carolina to pull this off. :) Or maybe it's sad. :(

    McCain was my top choice till Ron Paul came about. While he is not significantly different to have me jumping up and down, I do find that he will be a good, strong president. Maybe not perfect but of the candidates, other than Ron Paul of course :p , I would think he would do the least damage as President; ok and maybe some good!

    So they're idiots. Torture is not an effective interrogation tactic. If you get any information, it's just going to be lies to stop the torture.

    So is approving of torture a Republican Party plank now?

    Any conservatives or non-liberals here NOT in favor of torture?

    (Or what we used to call War Crimes.)

    Anyone?
