    Default Flabbergasting!

    So, we have frontrunners in key senate races that say things like:

    "some of you look Asian to me" to a group of Hispanic schoolchildren

    And:

    "show me where in the Constitution it mentions separation of church and state"

    You could hear the crowd erupt in gasps and then laughter at that last one.


    Tell me, tea-party supporters.....is this the best you've got?
    You want to trust the reigns of our government at a time of economic uncertainty, unemployment, war......to someone who asks where in the Constitution it mentions separation of church and state??

    Its not even funny anymore. Its sickening and scary. Since when is being stupid en vogue in America? If you pronounce names properly, you're called elitist and snobbish? I have no problem with having someone who's proud of being smart in office.

    Brace yourself. You're about to get an education on the constitution.

    and this is better than electing congressmen that have gay lovers running male prostitution rings and growing marijuana in their house, and then heckling opponents that dare run against their partner?

    or presidents who visit 57 states, and think Austrians speak Austrian? yeah, thats a great role model for foreign relations.....

    harry reid who says there are no illegal immigrants holding jobs in nevada?

    do you really think your side is so much better??

    and i thought you were "independent".....

    Let's not forget Greene running as a Dem for senate in SC. I believe one of his suggestions for raising revenues was to sell action figures of himself.

    that quote belongs to Tea Party favorite Sharon Angle...I thought she was referring to my family, because one of my brother's does look hispanic, a couple of my siblings could pass for being chinese, Clint could pass for being Eskimo,people often mistake me for being vietnamese except I am tall for being american-asian...and of course we are all American of Filipino descent..

    her comments were just another gaffe from someone ill suited for the job...unfortunately my choices are

    Sharon Angle
    Harry Reid
    Neither candidate
    All my Exes live in Texas
