    Heh, very well done.

    Of course, it's very rare you see any comics printed that come from a non-liberal viewpoint.

    I found this on another forum I browse. Don't know its original source but it made me chuckle a little bit.

    "Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed.

    Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again, I laughed--just imagine the coincidence.

    When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.

    I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful.

    At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient deserved money more."

    Actually, Obama's tax plan is an illusion

    No matter how many times you post this partisan crap, it's still not true.

    They don't want to understand. They don't want to look deeply at each candidate's proposals. Your politics are contaminated to the core by ultra-partisanship that makes any sort of debate meaningless as people are too busy defending their 'team' to make any effort to understand or accept the other side's message.

    This forum is a prime example. It's no longer about learning through debate, or about exploring ideas. It's sport, pure and simple; an incessant smear-fest that gets us all nowhere and makes a mockery of what should be the most important democratic event of this century so far.

    I would point to this as coming mainly from GOP-supporters, but that may be my own bias taking over. I won't push the point.

    Surprise, surprise! It's a quote from the same Rupert Murdoch organisation which brought you Faux "News". Not idiotic, shameless propaganda. Oh no, definitely not. Perish the thought.

    Name some "extreme left" media in the US.

    EDIT: Saw you edited some in. Thanks for the laughs. CNN, "extreme left"?

    From my perspective CNN and CBS are right-wing, just like the entire mainstream USA political scene. Just because your personal politics would paint Margaret Thatcher as a Socialist doesn't move the definitions as to what left and right actually are.

    The Democrats are a centre-right party by global standards. Your brain is addled by propaganda if you believe differently.

    Sure. In whatever alternate reality you're living in.

    As someone who considers themselves to be on the "extreme left", let me tell you that I find CNN to be rather right-wing. They certainly don't represent my views.

    Here we go again. "I know I'm wrong, but everyone else is doing it (*ahem*) so it doesn't count."
    "Oh yeah, well you're just as bad."
    "That fact may be fabricated, but the media do that all the time."

    Sport. Infantile sport. Why not just get Obama and McCain in a ring and settle this through a boxing match.

    EDIT: CNN are not left-wing.

    Please learn to talk sense. There is no "extremely left" or even "left" mainstream media in the USA. Don't you understand? There is extreme right, far right, right, right of centre, and centre. Just like US politics. You obviously have no idea of the political spectrum in the real world and you simply continue to make a fool of yourself by posting this arrant and ignorant nonsense over and over again.

    Maybe "extremely left" means "does not agree wtih me 100% of the time".

    Hell, Fox News is left then. They have, recently especially, been calling McCain on his idiotic moves.
