    I voted this morning, and there wasn't much of a turnout.
    I think I voted because I'm a Republican: we always do.
    Democrats should remember that in the presidential election.

    Eric Holder needs the boot. When are we going to get rid of this guy? He's a Bush holdover with issues. He needs to go.

    Obama can talk education all he wants to, but throwing money at it won't help.
    Education is all in your mind.

    Cain's response to the latest allegation: "No comment. I *said* no comment. What part of 'no comment' didn't you understand?
    Oh, I'm supposed to comment?
    I didn't do it."

    I think you will be surprised at how many Democrats will be there; it certainly surprised Republicans in 2008, didn't it?

    Herb throws out a lot of tough sounding rhetoric, but in the "end" he will have to "dance" to the beat that he himself created. After all, this woman is caucasian, so she is given a higher level of credibility, even though her story reeks; still, this couldn't have happened to a nicer, more deserving guy. Let's see how the 'good ole boys' in the south take to their boy Herb now.
