Sex scandals are getting kinda boring. Who the fark wants to listen to a Governor prattle on and on about how he's in love with an Argentinian? No thanks. I had enough of that shiat back in high school.

Damn how many Argentinians where there at your high school?

Republicans are making this so common that when Obama gets caught with a white woman, we won't even blink an eye.

It's nice that they go into detail into the Democrat's affairs and call what Mark Foley did "sext-messaging"

Sex scandals are boring as hell. Who farking CARES?

The only time I pay attention to them it's when it's one of those "family values" types who votes against gay rights and then gets caught getting pegged by a 22-year old boy. Because then it's a douchebag getting their hypocrisy exposed, and irony is nature's candy after all.

I'm sort of surprised that someone hasn't come into a sex thread and typed the word boobies just so that they can always have the last post. I think that is pedantic and distasteful.

Presumably for the same reason Congressman Jim McDermott (D-ick) wasn't prosecuted for turning over tapes of cell phones calls made by prominent Republicans.

I was pilloried for saying this in the Sanford thread but it's not the sex, it's the cover up...and the hypocrisy...and the sex

Don't see it happening. Not because he couldn't, or because he wouldn't. They just give out a vibe. I would guess that Michelle gets her zesty daily dose of "who's-your-daddy." Just saying.

Republican party shills who protest they're independents like their lives depended on it. Typically found in Obama threads last fall saying "I'm an independent, but I'm voting for mccain because of socialism birth certificate secret muslim adkjgnasdjnasdf".

I hate the Fark Independent label. I understand it's purpose but there are some true independents out here who don't get to put the other groups down as smugly as we would like.

Nah, Fark independents are those that basically make a living off of posting "Palin sucks! Bush started illegal war! Republicans R da sTupiD!1!" There have already been a few this thread.

I think sex scandals are boring. I guess maybe it might be because I've been politically independent since I became old enough to vote, about a decade before Fark was born.

/Git orf moy lorn!!!!

Jha: What is a Fark Independent™?


Someone who is actually a partisan supporter of one major party or the other, but who disingenuously claims to be independent in Fark comment threads in order to seem more credible and less partisan.

Not to be mistaken for actual political independents.

Just goes to show how out of touch the media really is.

Of course people will look at it when it's the top headline every day over the real news.

This is the website that had a minimum of 6 MJ headlines above all else for a week and a half too.

CNN business news is the only thing there remotely worth looking at.

US media sucks.

Republican or Democrat, I really don't care who you're farking. I care that you're smart as a politician and keep your word. I've noticed a lot of Republicans preach the whole "family values" thing, though, so getting caught with someone other than your spouse might be a bit worse in that case.

America needs to stop being so damn uptight when it comes to sex.

Count on CNN to skip over John Edwards and the still to be resolved issue of whether the kid is his or not and Gay American Democrat governor of New Jersey who hired his butt buddy for a state post.

I just am sooooo in love with that picture. It's amazing all the flack Obama gets for that, yet no one says a thing about Sarkozy checking out the entire package. Must be due to his rep. I say give Obama a couple more years of that, and no one will give a fark. Except Republicans.

The only thing I count on CNN to do is sensationalize the news and make it not news. If you want news try the BBC or NPR. If you want watered-down, soap-opera, average-idiot versions of things try CNN.

I'm not 100% sure what stance I'm going take on this issue, but it'll probably be a wide one.

Bravo and well done. Another reinforcement that both political parties do in fact suck.

Did anyone expect anything else of the Celebrity News Network? CNN exchanged its credibility for ratings long ago. Now it covers news the way MTV covers music.

Generally (in most states) a taping of a conversation is legal if at least one party knows about it.
