    He'd fit right in to Southern politics just fine. They like 'em simple.

  3. why NOT?!!

    Sure, he seems just as qualified as some of the whackos in the Congressional Black Caucus that wanted a national park on the moon!

    I really hope not. American politics is embarrassing enough these days.

    Go ahead and run. This guy will fit right in with the crowd who believes, If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it's probably a duck, until Fox "news" says it's not a duck,'s not a duck.

    Why not? He would at least look more interesting than the pink-cheeked fatbodies who now reside in Congress. Robertson would be the first man in Congress with long hair and beard since Reconstruction.

    Good representation of a southern backwoods hick. They wonder why the south is so backwards?

    maybe obama can pardon him? i'm sure this was all a little mistake. or maybe eric holder can unilaterally decide that this sentence is too long and have him released? i'm sure somebody will pop up with a racist angle to this somewhere. sniffin! where are you?!
    By the way, how are the investigation into Bob McDonnell and Scott Walker going? You seem to be remarkabley silent on those.

    investigations are still ongoing. don't you lefties understand the concept of innocent until proven guilty? all you clowns do is smear your opponents with allegations of wrong doing, most of which are rubbish.

    yet their names are always absent: why is that?

    because this is a discussion about ongoing current events and all of those ongoing current events happen to involve democrat criminals and perverts. whenever there are political opponents involved, the leftists are always in here attacking them which is fine.

    surely you cannot expect others to not comment on the current long list of democrat perverts and criminals in the news. i guess that democrat swamp that nancy pelosi professed to drain was also a myth! now please, don't get your panties in a twist, sit back and enjoy all of the media attention the democrats are getting.

    "don't you lefties understand the concept of innocent until proven guilty?

    LOL!!!! Coming from people who supported the birthers and ragerant here daily about the unproven "coverup" of what happened in Banghazi, the disproven IRS "targeting" crap, and every other unsupported or disproven ridiculous accusation you people have thrown at this POTUS and his's pretty funny to hear you say that. The GOP/Teatrolls, led by Issa, have taken the position that they get to accuse accuse accuse all day long, no matter what the evidence shows, and that the simply act of making the accusation places the burden on the accused party to disprove it. Elephants in the strawberry patches indeed.
