    I guess the Secret Service want to avoid what happened to this assaulted reporter

    Typical. When you don't have ideas, just spout nonsense and rhetoric and don't let anyone ask tough questions. The Republican Party is truly ideologically bankrupt.

    "We're Mavericks gosh! Don'cha know!" :rolleyes:

    Just another example of the Republicans attempting to cow the media. The White House doesn't let reporters into its press conferences if they ask troublesome questions; now reporters are being corralled at McCain-Palin events as well. If that's any indication of the kind of administration these guys would run....

    I'm so sick of the GOP's whole war on the press. Their "liberal media" crap makes me ill. They know it's untrue, but they also know there's no end of people who'll buy it.

    LIBERAL to me means unbiased and open.

    CONSERVATIVE to me means the opposite.


    When it comes to EFFIN' NEWS I want all the facts, not your opinion.

    I dont get it when someone is like, "That paper is TOO LIBERAL!"

    WTF are they talking about?

    Why the SS would agree to this is beyond me, unless they've been corrupted by political hacks in the same manner as the Justice Department...

    Yep, we have the same problem up here.

    Just show up, legally, but voice your intended lawful pursuit, and you are summarily "removed" from the premises.

    Democracy is a shell game, but they don't want you to know it.

    More then likely it's because her supporters refer to Obama by the N word and McCain publicly states he is proud of them.

    Oh my, but realistically he's only 1/2 the N word. [​IMG]

    This is Liberty and Freedom of speech at its finest. Brought to you by the Republican party. Think about it.

    You can only hear what we want you to.

    Gestapo is not currently in use.

    Or how about Firemen, for fans of Ray Bradbury. ;)

    Palin would like that one, for sure. :D

    They're too well-known for that one.
