Could not have happened to a bigger loser.

I know DK, and even though I disagree with him on almost everything ... I believe him to be a man of conscience doing what he believes to be the correct and best thing on the issues.

That is an exceedingly rare trait among politicans.

Is there some credible reason to post this over five months past its shelf date?

He had to contest <span style='font-size: 14pt'>another incumbent well-regarded progressive Democratic House member</span>, Marcy Kaptur, after his old district was re-districted.

And of course, he is not gone, exactly, yet. He continues to serve until Jan 20 next year or so.

Is there any reason to not still be happy 5 months down the road. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Yes ... a moonbat crazy leftist with integrity will possibly be replaced by a moonbat crazy leftist with little integrity.

It hardly rises to the level of something for which the monthly anniversaries are commemorated. Those are more properly sappy romantic anniversaries. I don't recall any glorious 5 month memorials to the 2010 GOP House takeback, which is far more momentous.

Especially as the 'gone' message is still over 5 months premature now, 11 months roughly premature then.

The only guy in DC to call out Bush and Rove for the liars they were and you call him a loser.
The only guy in DC with the balls to do the right thing EVEN if it made him unpopular and you call him a loser.

No, not that I've noticed anyway.

Hardly a point in question, though, as the FIVE MONTH ANNIVERSARY carries no inherent timing by itself, unless as part of a monthly anniversary commemoration. 6 months maybe, 12 months definitely might, but I don't know of any 5 month mark that is typically noted, UNLESS EVERY MONTH IS.

And there we have it ... yet another leftist admits to having zero tolerance of opposing viewpoints, not that there was much doubt.

I had been meaning to compliment your kind words concerning DK. Although you've said it before and it's not new, it is a rare thing to see you admitting the personal integrity of someone from the other side, and I think that's a healthy sign.

It's the OTHER characterization of him that is sad. You admit he's a man of integrity, doing his best by his convictions, and still slander him as a moonbat crazy leftist.

You had it almost right with 'even though I disagree with him on almost everything,' had it been left there.

You don't respect him enough to restrain yourself from hurling the dismissive language about someone who should not be respected, if they are moonbat crazy.

Hence the mixed reviews.

Sorry if I disappointed you. I simply was pointing out that in one post you were saying that you knew him personally and he was a fine, honorable man and in another post you were calling him a moonbat crazy.
Not sure what you thinks this "proves" about me. TBH, I have a lot of trouble following your train of thought. It may be that I'm just dense but I notice several others are having the same problem. Perhaps you're simply posting without carefully reading what you are responding to. I know Eg is very bad about that.

Thank you. That was what I was trying to say to him.
His bizarre response about that proving something about me
made me wonder about his state of mind. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

I feel that I am doing a much better job of controlling my emotions lately, not easy for an Irishman.
Several bring me up constantly on AZ. Larry Wilson, Yugo, and Lamas get pretty nasty. To his credit, Sev usually does not.
I've been tempted to respond but I know that's what they are waiting for.
I did find it interesting that Lamas brought up johnny d. a few times. I've always figured that he was a creation of the AZ klan designed simply to mess with me. I still figure that he was Larry Wilson but he could have been any of them. It really isn't important.
