"Yes, I am still running. I'm not ashamed for saying that government officials should be held to the same standards that we are."

My employer is not in the habit of hanging employees that don't pass their performance review. I'm probably not alone in that.

They should arrest him, just for the extra GOP lulz.

LEO:         Coles goes on the radio yesterday and he says people in his district love America and you better not come down there cause you might not get out alive [laughs]

BARTLET: Bert's calling me out?

LEO:         Apparently, the people in Bert's district are so patriotic that if the President of the United States himself were to show up- they'd kill him.

Somewhere in Alaska, or more likely Arizona, a voice screeches out for the wifi password, and a keyboard is about to be assaulted with a word salad no Sizzler bar could ever contain, all in the name of ringing those bells and firing those surveyor's marks for first amendmentin', you betcha.

So this is how we treat true patriotic leaders who demand accountability and a higher standard of compliance with the laws we must all obey?  With intimidation?!  The chilling effect this will have will extend far beyond simply free speech.

This should be a call to action for all of you.  Instead you're cheering on this administration's thuggery of any who dare voice a criticism of it.  You should all be ashamed.

I copied and pasted that from a script online, but it's interesting how little a writer needs to actually put on the page in order for a cast of great actors to make so much more out of it.

I wonder if he wakes up every morning and curses his parents for his last name.

Seriously, though, how was that not deemed threatening language?  Because he's not actually capable of going to hang anyone? This guy is clearly insane, and he's cocky about it, to boot.  I hope the Secret Service is still keeping an eye on him.

"Black appeared to be happy with the increased attention, tweeting at Latvala early Wednesday, "you have done it again. Thanks to your meddling, I now have twice as many followers on Twitter as I did on Monday."

I don't think that means what this gentleman *thinks* it means.

It's as if he actually believes that the phrase "any publicity is good publicity" applies in all situations.

When it's likely that a large portion of your new followers are national media folks who are following you in order to see how you slip up next, that's not a good thing.

It's one of the perks of the job.  I'm not saying it's completely 100% in line with the ideals of free speech and the First Amendment, BUT it is intellectually dishonest to say this Secret Service investigation is an example of this administrations thuggery and would not happen with a President McCain or Romney.

It really takes very little to get called a troll around here. Someone misses a Monty Python reference, you're a troll.

Yeah, well, as a liberal I have been disappointed in Obama. But he's a pol, so you have to expect that from him.

It's become a gut reaction to any and all criticism because so much of what comes out of the Right Wing noise machine is nonsense.

It's been birthers, arugula, mustard, and so many attempted *-gates, it's hard to keep track of it all.

Well done, Mr Republican.  You've not only drawn the ire and scorn of the masses, but you refuse to slink off into the night as your superiors would prefer.

I encourage you to stay strong and stay in the race so that we can keep the association between yourself and the GOP as strong as possible for as long as possible.

Good job for Chris Latvala, most Republican give a smile and wink at these racists in the Republican party and refuse to speak negative about them.
