ANY Dem can beat ANY Republican.
We are a Donkey state.
That's the way it is.
We can debate all kinds of stuff, but no matter, in the end, we vote DONKEY.

Lazio??? Probably still owes money from his last attempt at Public Office.

A little of topic but figured it could fit on the repub bashing thread.Can anyone explain gillibrands no vote on defunding acorn?

Senate’s Child Sex Seven: Suporting ACORN against Johanns defunding amendment: Don’t let them forget their votes!

Burris (D-IL)
Casey (D-PA)
Durbin (D-IL)
Gillibrand (D-NY)
Leahy (D-VT)
Sanders (I-VT)
Whitehouse (D-RI)

The House vote to defund ACORN isn’t going to be as easy. Help me stigmatize Senate supporters, and caution your Representative not to join this club during the upcoming House vote: Senate’s Child Sex Seven

Bring it on Rick! The Dems should be so lucky. Ricky or Rudy - either way GOP can you say buh-bye?

oh dear, i don't know if lazio would be any better than paterson. he seemed clueless in 2000. (that's not to say i'm enthusiastic about Andrew Cuomo: I'm not).

can't we have an upstate governor? I mean the last upstate governor we had was fdr. Is asking for one upstate governor a century too much?

Dede would make a nice choice (yes I'm serious). I wish she would run and the democrats would nominate paterson. she'ld win.

11:29 am, gillibrand is still terrified by the ultra-liberal nyc democrats who don't trust her and demand allegiance to every liberal cause.

Gillibrand needs a Dem Primary if for nothing else, to keep her honest -- which right now, she is not. But, flaky and wishy-washy come to mind.

I wish I had the money...

Gillibrand really made us proud, being one of 7 senators who think ACORN should still get taxpayer funds. But you probably agree with that, don'tcha Dan?

It's unfortunate that despite all of the wonderful things that ACORN has done, its reputation will be sullied by this "staged event".

This is nothing more that disguised racism.

9:20 - why do insist in trying to speak for me all the time, whoever you are?

If you speculate about me 10 times, you'd be wrong 11...

Grow up and if you have any questions for me... ask me directly - not hiding behind an Anonymous moniker.

I have never given anyone any hint that I was an ACORN fan of any sort.

But we can tell dan.some things you just can't hide.

Anyone against ACORN must be a racist.
Anyone in the Republican party must be a racist.
Fox News is racist.

These are all absolute truths.
Excuse me while I relax on my bidet.
