Rent Party: Wait wait wait....You mean the fabulously wealthy oligarchs that control the entire farking country aren't really divided by issues, but are instead united by their love of money?Why, it's almost as if politics is nothing other than theater to keep the plebes entertained!
nickdaisy: I refuse to vote for another Clinton or Bush.
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Scaife was a big deal in my neck of the woods. He had his hands in a lot of non-profits, think tanks, and media in order to facilitate his agenda. It'll be interesting to hear the dirt that comes out over the next few months. (It'll also be interesting to see which ones collapse without his largess.)
Headso: CptnSpldng: HotWingConspiracy: So many graves to piss on.Maybe if you hurry you could have a bowl of Cinncinnati chili and leave a deposit in the grave before they fill it in.Cincinnati chili becomes a Cleveland steamer?
Darth_Lukecash: NotoriousW.O.P: I worked for the Pittsburgh Trib for a while. Unfortunately, any good journalism they turned out (and they were capable of turning out good journalism) was overshadowed by an editorial page that reflected Scaife's political views -- which could turn bizarre (for example, an editorial suggested that Katharine Graham had her husband killed and took over the Washington Post).I think it's particularly telling that the only people who are speaking well about him are the ones who drew a paycheck from him -- and might not continue to do so for much longer. According to divorce filings from his second wife, the Trib lost about $30 million a year, and I can't imagine things have gotten better. The one owner who could stomach those kinds of losses is dead now, and I've got a lot of friends still at the Trib who are kind of nervous right now.Expect a dramatic downturn.People want news: but they don't. Want to pay for it.
cleek: Hillary is also "good friends" with Henry Kissinger.because she's such a liberal.
TV's Vinnie: Hilary Rodham Clinton has always been a corporatist. Before she became Fist Lady,
PunGent: TV's Vinnie: Hilary Rodham Clinton has always been a corporatist. Before she became Fist Lady,Scariest super villain ever..
EyeballKid: If there's such a thing as Hell, Richard Mellon Scaife is home now.
Infernalist: I still remember the GOP jumping up and down and screaming "He had sex in the oval office!!11one" and the rest of us went '...cool'
anfrind: nickdaisy: to the guy who said libertarians don't offer solutions-- if you believe in government being the primary source of solutions-- you're correct. But that wasn't my point. My point was that people like you and me, who hold very different political views, don't have much of a choice. It's vote for this bank's candidate or that bank's candidate.You're still not offering any solutions.
Chuckie baby! Hey, Chuckie, Chuckie, Chuckie!
What do YOU want!
Is my fly open?
No, man. Get outta here. Your fly is not open!
Well, it should be. I'm peein'.
GameSprocket: The problem with Hillary running for President is that it would be a race between a hard-core conservative willing to sell their soul for a political career and whoever the GOP picks.Seriously, I don't like Hillary. She co-sponsored a bill to criminalize flag-burning, for God's sake! I have never met anyone who has burned a flag as part of a protest who was not a total douche, but you can't say it isn't political speech. It is one of the most clear-cut cases of "I don't like it, but I will defend your right to do it" that there is.

We could stop putting people in prison for doing or selling drugs. We could stop putting people in jail for engaging in or soliciting prostitution. We could stop putting people in jail for gambling... You know, the simple stuff of getting the government you idiots implemented out of shiat that they never should have been involved in in the first place.
Mrtraveler01: Love it when I see this because it ignores the fact that marriage was a civil thing before it became a religious one.
