allegations during a speech at a Baptist church in Theodore, Alabama on November 29. In a speech at

liberal agenda,” as well as “the Washington establishment.” He continued, "The attacks have
not only been false and numerous but malicious. They’ve attacked me for my judicial decisions, my

Yea, but they don’t lose. That’s the problem. It’s the American people that lose. These
assholes Republicans owe nothing to the American people. Only to those that bribe them with money.
As I showed in my OP about measuring success; they’ve already succeeded by getting elected. They
are now assured an income for the rest of their lives. And it’s the fault of the ignorant and
stupid that vote for them. They have no shame because they have no conscious. Once we rub their
collective noses in their ignorance, their pride prevents them from admitting to their stupidity.
Irish Prick, Rotten Pickle, Un-Travel, et al. They just can’t admit they were fooled and that we,
their betters, showed them.
