The 30-year-old questioned why his post was an issue. He said it was a "private" post, written while he was between jobs. He angrily said my asking about it was a political hit and an invasion of his privacy.
"I have a private Facebook page that was open to my friends only," he said, adding he had 423 friends.
"It's not for a larger audience - there's a reason I have the security settings in place," he said.



1. something said to 423 people isn't private.
2. I'd say that at least one of his "friends" took offense to the comment.
3. being a facebook friend doesn't mean they agree with you politically.
4. way to accept personal responsibility for your comment Mr party of personality responsibility

Why do you get to call men 'dick' but can't call a woman a 'coont'?

I love that the guy who did it is peeved because it was on his "private" Facebook wall. Not only is he sexist, he's also a moron.

Jensen said he should have the right of self-expression, the right to react to something Conrad said in what he thought was "behind closed doors."
He wasn't, he said, "using a megaphone in the parking lot."



ok, you're dumb. And, you're only 30. So you have no excuse for not understanding how Facebook works.

robohobo: AverageAmericanGuy: There is so much nasty name-calling in today's politics and political discussions. Go to any thread on the Politics tab about Sarah Palin and you'll find the same word leveled at her. It's disgusting when Democrats do it to Republicans and it's disgusting when Republicans do it back at Democrats.

The Bush years were especially damaging to political discourse. Once the Democrats decided that he was the Worst President Evar™ they turned their backs on working across the aisle and began with the name-calling.

I had hoped that Obama's election would put a stop to that and we could move forward as a coontry again, but the name-calling hasn't abated at all.

Is calling a woman a coont worse than calling a dude an asshole? I've used both, and interchangeably. In my experience,  normal women take the same amount of offense, while womyn rawr libber women take offense to coont like it's verbal rape or something.. Not that I go tossing either about all pell-mell. I just find it interesting. Also, guys react the same for either word.


Yes. Everyone's got an ahole, and aholes are full of ick, so "ahole" is neither a gender-specific nor (necessarily) sexual term. Coonts OTOH, only wimmins have'um. So, IF you're in a context where femaleness is derided as a weakness, as is sometimes true in politics, "coont" can be misconstrued as a sexist, rather than personal insult. Not that I agree with flying off the handle about it, but for those who wish to vent publicly, it might be wise to check one's language a bitsy. ... Sorta like, if you're my late Gma, and you don't want people to "mistake" you for a racist, best not to say stuff like "That Black-hearted Greek just Jewed me with his Indian-giving!" 'cause that could give the wrong impression.

She's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When she comes at ya, she doesn't even seem to be livin'... 'til she bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'.
