Either family values are an important part of the conservative platform or they are not. If they are, then violation of said values should be an important issue to voters and should be focused on. If they are not, then conservative politicians should not be attacking liberal politicians for violations of the same values they don't seem to hold.

You can't have it both ways. If cheating on one's wife is not an important issue. then why was impeaching Clinton for it such a big deal?

cchris_39: dopirt: I'll play if you will. In the vice president debate Paul Ryan stated that he considered life to begin at conception, yet he also felt that abortions in the case of rape or incest were Ok. How do you reconcile these two statements? How does the fetus's method of existence matter.

Believe it or not, there are conservatives who accept those exceptions, even first trimester abortions. And (this will really blow your mind), there are liberals who find third trimester and partial birth abortions as gruesome and unacceptable as conservatives do.


Even people who are devoutly pro-choice are not happy about abortion, you know. Nobody I know jumps out of bed in the morning going "Yay! We have abortions! Isn't that lovely!"

Yeah it was OKAY to FARK A PATIENT because I was divorced.

But he pleaded for understanding

Fine. How he lives his life is no concern of mine, and his infidelities are between him and his wife.

But I will remind viewers that he and his supporters refuse to give anyone else the same "understanding" they plead for when caught.

If Paul Ryan was against abortion in the case of rape and incest too, you would be flaming him for that. Maybe he just realizes how awful rape and incest are and that the burden of carrying the baby after such a terrible experience would just be too much?

Excuse me, but the sanctity of marriage is the foundation of this country. It's one of the founding principles, by God! When you allow people to engage in whatever kind of sexual activity, you're encouraging an immorality that strips away God's protection. How can you say that abortion and the definition of marriage are unimportant to voters?

The thing is, the republicans actually subscribe to a bizarre religious philosophy. They view themselves as "God's Chosen", which means that not only do they think they have the legal power (as granted by God) to force laws and religious doctrine upon other people, but they themselves as exempt from any laws, including the ones they force on the rest of us.

That ugly fark is the reason why I continue to ask out women who are way out of my league (and my batting average is pretty damn good, if I do say so myself).

I figure if an ugly fark like him can get laid, then a slightly less ugly looking fark like me should have no problem.

/of course, I'd have to see his women before I can make a completely accurate comparison.
