Do you realize that way back yonder at the founding of our Republic the word "Democrat" was an epithet? Back then if you called someone a Democrat you might well be challenged to a duel --- or just get the snot knocked out of you. In the late 1700s, a Democrat was "someone who panders to the crude and mindless whims of the masses." Not much has changed insofar as the definition has changed ... but now we elect them.
"but now we elect them."
errr, you just elected a House-full of Republicans.
sheeeeeesh, get your righty-smears right!
You do realize that there are also multiple definitions of "teabagger" also don't you?
The term tea party as it applies to politics, has a valid historical basis....the gay community's use of the term was in no way meant to be political....
It,'s not strictly a 'gay' practice but there are so many gay republicans in office and in the closet you can understand why the error is so common. Actually, I have known a number of GOP women who practice though not with their husbands.
I wouldn't get too self righteous if I were you, since neither party has the morality market cornered.
Morality as far as a democrat is concerned is usually based on what they can get away with.
Morality to a Republican is saying one thing to the public and practicing the complete opposite of that in airport bathrooms.
But you wouldn't consider being gay a bad thing....would you?
Nope. What goes on between a Republican and his gerbils is their own business.
You are if nothing else, consistent.
But the gerbil fetish is a little disturbing.
Thank you. I'm am proud to be considered tolerant of Republican fetishes. Can't wait for Boehner's upcoming "gavel banging" scandal with a 13 year old congressional page.
I prefer my women to be alive.
The crypt-keeper AKA former speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi doesn't qualify.
And no, I don't prefer Boehner, but its ok that you do.
Ron has a curious preoccupation with gay sexual innuendo....
Prove it. It's only fair. You keep screaming for Obama's birth certificate; produce your proctology exam reports.
Maybe next time those people will do a little research before they name their little band of morons.
You'll have to forgive the Tea Party for looking to a turning point in American history for inspiration as opposed to our esteemed gay community.....
Guess it demonstrates just where our respective minds tend to wander, huh?
Didn't really think of a sexual position as being a turning point in history, but if that encompasses your knowledge of the topic...
Are you really that ignorant of American history or are you just stirrin the puddin? Because if it's the former, I'm gonna be real disappointed.....
Is surely.....? I can't read your mind, dude (for which I am profoundly grateful....)
Practice on your own first, you'll get there eventually.
The gay community is also looking towards a turning point in American history.

I am not an American, but what goes on in the USA is important to the world.Lincoln was a Republican and freed the slaves. One would expect black Americans to generally vote Republican. But they don't.How did this come about?

I am not justifying Herman Cain's behavior, but the media acts like he is the first womanizing politician. They willingly forget that Clinton had many scandals during his run for office and while he was in office. What about Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe? Then there...

I find it interesting when Democrats say the only reason people will vote for Romney is because he is a Republican. They chastise the people on the right who are loyal to their party. They cannot see that people will not vote for Obama because he is doing a lousy job. OF course it is Ok for them to...

Do you contend that in 2016 that Americans will put a Republican president in office? Why? Why not?

Newt seems to me to have slit his own throat with his criticism of the Ryan Medicare privatization proposal which was adopted nearly unanimously by the House last month. Moreover, the House vote may have cost the GOP seats in in several elections coming up soon and next year. As Eric Alterman said,...

Who believes the Republicans will win the White House in two years time?
