well when you support a candidate that is friends with a terrorist whose wife actually killed to police officers... you tend to get passionate about it and derail whatever topics you are discussing...
i will say no more on this...
“My government is my worst enemy. I’m going to fight them with any means at hand.” This was former revolutionary terrorist Bill Ayers back in his old Weather Underground days, right? Imagine what Sarah Palin is going to do with this incendiary quote as she tears into Barack Obama this week. Only one problem. The quote is from Joe Vogler, the raging anti-American who founded the Alaska Independence Party. Inconveniently for Palin, that’s the very same secessionist party that her husband, Todd, belonged to for seven years and that she sent a shout-out to as Alaska governor earlier this year. (“Keep up the good work,” Palin told AIP members. “And God bless you.”)

The youtube video I posted on here was an example of how easily mislead people are by lies of the fox news and the like. These attacks are nothing but ad-hominem attacks on Obama and they are not true. I am not in favor of these racial slurs against Obama.
I had heard that the once-dependable FactCheck.org had gone left, falsely attacking Republican ads and providing cover for Democrats. I hadn't bothered to look at it, but, sadly, it appears to be true. Like snopes.com, FactCheck.org has bowled itself into the left gutter. Here's a recent example:
The McCain campaign and the Republican National Committee both claim that Obama has voted 94 times “for higher taxes.” We find that their count is padded.
It's padded only if you try to 'interpret' what they're saying instead of listening to what they actually say.
...There's another possible explanation behind FactCheck's positions. Just last year, FactCheck's primary funding source, the Annenberg Foundation, also gave $50,000 to the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence for "efforts to reduce gun violence by educating the public and by enacting and enforcing regulations governing the gun industry." Annenberg made a similar grant for $100,000 in 2005.
