      To Scared Monkeys,
      You people are obviously racist, republican idiots. You are supposed to be neutral. You criticize the Democrats but look, even republicans see that George Bush sucks and a lot of them distanced themselves from him. The war is wrong it does not help in the fight against terrorism. America has a lot of internal issues and the republicans are not those to deal with them. I would rather say madame Pelosi any day.


      SM: Jen … why don’t you get a clue … buy a vowel … do something.

      We are supposed to be neutral? Who said, YOU? What planet do you come from where you think a blog needs to be neutral? We cover missing and exploited children cases here as well, think we are neutral with rapists and sex offenders???

      Yea, we spend hours upon hours doing what we do so that you can tell us how we should do things? Spoken like a true liberal moon-bat. Just another reason why moon-bats should never win elections and be in power. Because we are Republican , that makes us racist? What an open mind you have. You should be so proud of yourself. You would actually believe that someone is a racist because of a party affiliation? You are truly a fool.

      This is a perfect example of why freedom of speech is a double edged sword. We allow your comment thru just to show whats out there on the other side. When you vote for Dems … this is what you ultimately give power to.

      What does voting in Democrats have to do with distancing from GWB. Of course conservatives and Republicans are upset. They will be a lot more upset when Nancy Pelosi starts with her liberal SF crap.

      However, here is the prediction because the Democrats mortgaged the house to win this election. Liberals were not voted in for the most part. Democratic candidates ran more like Republicans than they did Democrats. Especially in the Midwest and South. You don’t think that they made promises that have to be kept? Lets see just how liberal both Reed and Pelosi run things.

      1 of 2 things will occur. They will act like typical liberals and alienate the new Reps & Senators and they will be voted out of office in 2 years. They will side with the new blue dog Democrats and piss off people like you and the far left.

      There is one silver lining to this dark cloud. Hillary Clinton’s job of becoming President just got a lot more difficult. No longer can the Left say that its all Republicans fault and they control all branches of GOVT. Its time for the Democrats to put up or shut up. No more just whining about GWB. Lets see what they do. Lets see what an economy does with taxes being raised.

      This was a costly learning experience for the Republican party, but obviously one that was necessary for them to comprehend why they were in DC in the first place.

      The US is about to see what its like to have Democrats in power. What will happen with taxes, national security, spending, war on terror, stock market, etc  We shall see what happens in the 2008 Presidential Elections …

      Winning an election is like giving birth. Your  job isn’t over its just begun.

      It’s a great day for democracy–the people have spoken up for change and I for one am very very happy.
      It’s time the fascist republicans step aside–after all–haven’t they made enough money? We are sick of this stupid war–sick of Halliburton–sick of sending our soldiers basic supplies.
      We are tired of corporate welfare and high insurance premiums–we are sick of it all and it shows.
      Congratulations Madame Speaker!!!!

    5. Karen Simmons on November 8th, 2006 11:32 am

      Yeah….for the Democrats!!!!

    6. Carny on November 8th, 2006 11:40 am

      who gives a shit . Its not like the ding-o-crats are going to make a difference in this country. except maybe make us look like the french..a bunch of wussies

    7. chloe on November 8th, 2006 4:00 pm

      I for one feel very happy today. I have to second the earlier poster called “D”. Very happy in Maryland. I hope we see some positive changes for everyone. I am so sick of the Iraq war. I hope to God we bring home the troops soon. I think it’s time for us to stop bashing each other and work together to get something done. This is such a wonderful country and I love living here, but I feel like we are so divided by our political parties. Most of us want the same things for our country and for our families. I hope we can come together and stop all the madness!
