"I've heard Clinton's lofty pleading: "Shouldn't there be some forum where Americans and citizens of the world can put aside there differences and find common ground." "

Shouldn't their be some fourum ware Americans can set aside grammer and punctuation. I think so too?

I expect my ex-Presidents to have good manners to ladies. Ariana Huffington has proved herself not a lady.

Why do I get the feeling we're not far off from a pundit endorsing the 'political cleansing' of the country?

Leave Laura Bush out of this, Arianna. She's not her husband. She's just a sexy lady trying to do some good.

She's right, you know. People who have differing political opinions and who are not in any kind of direct competition with each other should not be civil or polite. They should always be pissing circles around the other person and grappling to try to gnaw off each other's gonads.

Politics 101, man,.

Pull out the troops and exile every pundit, pollster, and politician above local government to Iraq and let them try and carve out a country Israeli style. It's time to start fresh.

So why cloud the issue by giving a powerful symbol of the Bush administration a giant platform to deliver an upbeat message to the world about her husband's good intentions, announcing a major White House initiative on providing clean drinking water to Africa?

If a single speech is sufficient to cloud the differences between Democrats and Republicans, the problem is not the speech.

She's an idiot, a blowhard, an enabler, a dilettante, an attention whore, a gold digger and very, very irritating.

And a foreigner!

Ahh, a fan of the Karl Rove School of Do Whatever It Takes, I see.

Does Ariana prefer the political clusterfark that the UN has become? Where politics, posturing, and ulterior motives have stifled the organization's ability to do anything?

Get your head out of your coont.

Two things:

-As a confessed grammar Nazi, I can tell you that if you have resorted to pointing out spelling, grammar and syntax errors, you are scrapping the bottom of the argument barrel,
-I assume your level of outrage is the same now as it was when Clinton was President and folks attacked Hillary. I would expect nothing less from you bastions of chivalry.

Never, ever, ever again bring up Ann Coulter's yang. That's just freakin' disgusting.

Bill Clinton is the most mature member democrat in the country right now.

In his remarks at the unveiling in the East Room, Bush said Clinton demonstrated "incredible energy and great personal appeal" as a candidate for public office.

"As chief executive, he showed a deep and far-ranging knowledge of public policy, a great compassion for people in need, and the forward-looking spirit that Americans like in a president," Bush said as the Clintons sat in front of him in the first row of chairs. "Bill Clinton could always see a better day ahead -- and Americans knew he was working hard to bring that day closer.

"Over eight years, it was clear that Bill Clinton loved the job of the presidency," Bush continued. "He filled this house with energy and joy. He's a man of enthusiasm and warmth, who could make a compelling case and effectively advance the causes that drew him to public service."

The biggest reaction to Bush's speech came when he spoke of the former president's drive to meet expectations of success.

"And meeting those expectations took more than charm and intellect -- it took hard work and drive and determination and optimism," Bush said. "And after all, you've got to be optimistic to give six months of your life running the McGovern campaign in Texas."

Clinton, who worked in Bush's home state on the failed 1972 presidential campaign of George McGovern, burst into loud laughter, his face turning red.

Bush noted some of Clinton's other accomplishments, including his standing as the first Democrat to win reelection to the White House since Franklin D. Roosevelt.

"And I could tell you more of the story, but it's coming out in fine bookstores all over America," Bush added to laughter and applause in what amounted to a plug for Clinton's forthcoming memoir.

Bush also heaped praise on Hillary Rodham Clinton, currently a Democratic senator from New York and a favorite target of conservatives.

Other than LIeberman. But, yes, its odd. Has he and his wife been spotted in the same place since his presidency ended? I never see them together. Why won't they just get a divorce?

Laura Bush is just plain nice. You won't hear a serious democrat politician be anything but polite to her. It would be bad for them at the polls.

I_C_Weener: Reagan and Rosa Parks' funerals.

And Parks' funeral, IMHO, was a bad PR showing for Hillary. She should have stayed seated when Bill spoke. Bill, in his typically easygoing, comfortable, heartfelt speaking style said exactly what needed to be said. And next to him stood Hillary - looking dour and sour as usual. The contrasts in style couldn't be more evident.

I don't know why so many Dems think she's going to be a latter-day Bill. I hold no such delusions.

In another stunning display of flip-flopping, I cannot decide which I would like to buttfark more: Huffington or Ana Marie Cox.

/Can I have both please? Thanks!

As a CLOSETED grammar Nazi, let me point out that the moment you start correcting others, you are doomed to make mistakes therein.

Like misspelling "scraping" in your rebuke, for instance.

/ducks back into closet

I just don't get it. This woman, Huffington, has no purpose. She makes no contribution to the greater good. She is insignificant other than to be the negative image of Ann Coulter; who herself is worthless.

But this is not a time for Bill Clinton to be acting like a former president, floating above the political fray. This is a time for Bill Clinton to be acting like a Democratic former president. There is a world of difference between the two.

I am sick and muthapharking tired of the rampant divisiveness in this country; supported and encouraged mostly be people of much means, from all parts of the political spectrum, who have long forgotten what it means to work for a living.

/end lengthy rant

I guess it's a good thing I did no such correcting then.

BTW, thanks for proving the rule. :)
