Re: “Less Is More

What Taylor recommends--- Being able to vote at any of 50 "super locations"--- Sounds like Early Voting writ large, and the GOP-led Election Commission has already proven itself quite incapable of handling that. Can I get a show of hands from the people foolish enough to believe that an Election Commission incapable of allowing people to vote at any of 20 locations will do better by expanding the field to fifty? Good. We can move on now.

By the way, the Flyer would do well to allow Steve Ross to write a counter to this piece. You know, since you've already given us the opinion of someone too lazy to check the law before writing, it might be nice to hand the pen over to someone that knows how to do some research.

Re: “Kenneth Neill's Take: "If the Shoe Fits, Throw It!"

You know, this would be a nice time for W to prove he can be "the bigger man". A man is about to face a 7 to 15 year sentence for an act that would have wounded little more than his pride--- It would make sense for him to request leniency.

Re: “State Republican Party Officials Come to the NCRM

The Republican Party of today would call Lincoln a commie and an "America hater". That's what they call anyone that's trying to upset the white male power structure. If that didn't work, they'd circulate a BS story on Fox News saying he went to a madrassa as a child...

Re: “Stacey Campfield is a Serious Person

After seeing the "Stacey Campfield is a Serious Person" headline, I can only hope you'll give equal time to "Stacey Campfield is a Tard".

Re: “Don't Say "Gay"

For people not familiar with Campfield, he's made a habit of sponsoring legislation that makes this state the butt of late night TV jokes. He got his last round of national headlines for an idiotic proposal that we issue death certificates every time there's an abortion. He also sponsored HB 995, an odious piece of legislation nicknamed "The Wife Beater Protection Act". As for the mewling, sycophantic apologist he's found here, Terry Frank's last round of headlines came when she made the "This Is HUGE!" announcement that somehow or another, evidence that we had found Saddam's WMDs had eluded every newspaper in the the world, all television outlets, and was in the exclusive hands of her and her editors at the Shoppers' News-type publication that puts her in print. Hilarity abounded as she spent every day stalling for time every time someone asked her for the documentation.

Re: “Don't Say "Gay"

"Can you possibly be a more dishonest person than this reporter?" And the person who swore up and down that she had secret evidence that we had found Saddam's WMD has the nerve to ask that question? Go back to a corner of the world where you're not considered a joke, Terry Frank. If such a place exists.

Re: “Tinker Blames Cohen for Hate Crimes Controversy

I'm still wondering how these ministers managed to read through the thousand "begats" in the first chapter of Genesis and are yet unable to read the Hate Crimes Bill and figure out that the only thing they are not allowed to say about gays is "Go beat them up". This is just a replay of the 2006 primary. Tinker is an empty shirt who lacks the spine to say where she stands on the issues, so she attacks.
