My point was that Fox didn't say that, really. =P



Wait a sec... you're trying to drive me nuts, aren't you.

Hello Danoz.
WRONG.
Hillary's been leaning more toward the center than Bill did. She' s not gonna fold. And if she gets the nomination, you wanna make a bet? <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

I'm pretty sure I don't give a shit at this point.

What I DON'T want is some woman winning a gimmick election, and getting stuck with some power-tripping family-values bitch censoring everything she can get her hands on and trampling over what's left of free speech here, just because everyone voted for her because it was "about time."

Frankly, after the Hot Coffee fiasco, there's no way I'd vote for Hillary. Ever. The only way you'd convince me otherwise is if Pat Lieberman was running against her, and I'm not sure if that makes sense.

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to raise the GTA issue with Hillary...

That is extremely sexist point of view since there is no prior evidence to base it on. Besides the congress and courts have the real power when it comes to lawmaking. Hell it's congress's fault all this shit has been happening because they like Bush are the lackey's of the Republican National Committee and if you want change then vote them out of office. <img src=smilies/cwm11.gif>

No, but somehow I'd imagine that a female president would be much more inclined to take a heavy handed stance against sex and violence in the media, video games, etc.

"It's just about time for a female president" should be taken with a grain of salt, and we should make sure we don't elect a shitty president into office because of it.

It's a wonder you all mentioned her bitching about the GTA thing, yet not bothered mentioning what she did that one poor woman.
A couple years ago a woman made Hillary a dream-catcher out of feathers she found had found at the zoo. They were small eagle feathers by the way.
Hitlary had the woman fined and given several years probation for this. So if we have a female president, it damn well better not be her.

Despite the above qualifying for Godwin invokation, I'll reply to this one.
Clinton never "had" the woman fined and put on probation. Fish & Wildlife heard about it on their own. She was eventually pardonned by Bill Clinton.

Ya know, every source I have ever heard about that NEVER mentions that fact. Not even the news. I still dislike her though. And the Hitlary thing's an old joke. I acknowledge she is nowhere near as screwed up as Hitler, I and quite a few others call her that for the Hell of it. It's because of the fact their names blend together so easily, and she is rather domineering.
But you're right, that was completely innapropriate.

Uhh... so because you never bothered to fact-check a poltical annecdote of the type that people love to retell and forward in e-mails to friends of the same political leanings (and which often is "improved" in the retelling), my correction is highly suspect?
Archived copy of CNN article- It really wasn't that hard to find.
