    Correai, if you steal from somebody, it's not a gaffe , it's steanilg. I want you to admit he stole a speech. Also, if you cheat on a test, it's not a gaffe , it's cheating, hence, thief and cheater.Johnson, how is asking what newspaper you read a bullshit question? If Barack had been asked that same question and given the same answer, you wouldn't think he was a nimrod? You two are gold; you're proving my point that true believers on both sides will never admit to the shortcomings of their party's candidates. Neither party has a policy on illegal immigration, for example. If they do, please elaborate.You guys .steaks at my house this Christmas! And when I say steak, I mean hamburger.

    Well pardon my nausea, trying to get past another attack by Howard "The Hypocrite!" Kurtz on MSNBC and the whining/sniveling of Matt Lewis makes me sicker. I want to address a couple of issues I have with your lousy manifesto. Since your so good at talking about MSNBC, here's a fact for you. MSNBC and FOX News does statistically better in the ratings than CNN (ad lib: ...I'm sorry, that's HypocriCNN!). You know it and I know it, instead of wasting your time playing media police, why don't you and this awful network of yours learn what real journalism is and isn't! Issue #2, the Democratic National Convention was mostly watched over the Republican National Convention in my opinion because people want to actually hear solutions to problems and how you get to the solutions. Not about hearing about trivial and almost schoolyard instigating put on by some of the jerks that work with CNN (ad lib: ..oops! ...that's HypocriCNN!). People who want to treat others with negativity and skepticism certainly deserve it right back. So take you medicine and grow up!
