    if you watched this guy throw the 2000 election to Bush
    while he was President of the Electoral College
    you’d know that he’s one of the hackers

    • I’ve always thought he threw the election myself,
      mainly because he didn’t want to owe anything to blacks.

      That’s right, he’d rather lose than owe former slaves.

        my suspicion is that the reason is even more mundane than that
        I think he “threw” the election because his bosses told him to

        but you’re correct, the only vote challengers at the EC vote
        were from the Black Caucus, except for one white dude
        and I think Jesse Jackson Jr.’s vote challenge
        probably led to his political downfall

  4. Another assclown for the corporate/state machine.
    Also, his head looks like a giant ham with a face on it.

    • granted he could be a lot more specific
      i’d never actually listened to the man before this
      heard plenty of shit irregardless
      i don’t find it to be that it aint the case that his abstract view and don’t step in the bullshit walk are entirely dissuasively persistent as an identicon to anyone else
      cough nast cough

    He is only being honest because it suits his agenda. Much like his green initiates all the while his whole family are invested in and or part owners still of Occiendal Oil. One of the biggest drivers of paramilitary spending in SA states when there is a convenient time to start attacking indigenous people who don’t want their oil stolen, under the guise of anti-communist counter insurgency or these days the more fashionable anti-terror war. This guy has always been a snake.

    Yes, Congress is hacked. Along with the Democratic Party.

    This is largely Al Gore’s fault.

    Gore and Clinton personally created the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC, Third Way) as a conduit for the corporate/superwealthy takeover of the Democratic Party for the centrist agenda set forth in the 1971 Powell memo.

    The Democrats have devolved into a vehicle for selling a “kinder, gentler” neo-liberal centrism to an upscale, “liberal”, “progressive” market demographic composed of hipsters and boomers too naive to know any better, whose “moral superiority” comes down to being “too cool” to bash gays and blacks and attend NASCAR races – but doesn’t go far enough to stop their President from blowing up foreign children who are the wrong color.

    (update) It’s appropriate that Gore said this at the Milken Institute. A look into the history of that organization and its founder, Michael Milken will explain why.
