And why not? Why shouldn't female Republican politicians get in on the action after Senator David Vitter (in Stormy Daniels' home state), Senator Larry Craig, Senator Ensign, former House Speaker Gingrich, Governor Mark Sanford, the RNC staff, and the rest of the lustful Republican family values hypocrites.

You see, what the Republicans say, whether it's family values or deficit reduction, non-interventionist foreign policy, or preserving personal freedom from government, does not matter anymore. We now all know that what they actually do is an entirely different story.

Based on Republican conduct, it is entirely natural that a porn star would be attracted to them.

Yep, guess the GOP is a Big Tent, including many who are against tax and spend. Yet, when did the left become the moral authority, while supporting those who would limit or take away the peoples liberties.

Nope, I disagree that because Republicans have a morality problem means they are a big tent party. My point was just the opposite. The Republican tent has shrunk to exclude those who are for deficit reduction, non-interventionist foreign policy and personal freedom from government intrusion like spying. That is why many moderate and Goldwater Republicans voted for Obama.

And we know from Katrina, the gay fearmongering and ballot initiatives and attacks on the nomination of the first Latina Supreme Court Justice and throwing overboard of the first Latino Attorney General how Republicans feel about minorities. Let's see how Michael Steele fares . . . .

And take away the Religious/Morality appeal by not practicing what you preach and that leaves who for the Republicans . . . . ? Hint: the tent is gone - there is just one luxury estate for a few right-wing billionaires who don't want to pay taxes on their big chunk of our economy and/or who own a media empire like Fox.

Feel free to deny it all while the Republican Party collapses over the next five to ten years.

Nope again. That is exactly the point. The left does not claim to be the party of moral authority to nearly the same degree as those proud, self-righteous family values Republicans who have wrapped themselves up with Religion with a capital R, and even have a name for themselves in the Christian Right or Religious Right. Think Pat Robertson, Gerry Falwell, James Dobson, Family Research Council and all the rest.

The left is not the party that launched the program to spy on Americans without a warrant. Bush and Cheney's secret spying program predictably has led to all sorts of abuses we are only beginning to discover and a paltry amount of results in stopping terrorism. In other words, it was run about as well as the Republicans ran the invasion of Iraq, Katrina and everything else.

Good for you. You seem to be saying, that is all the more reason for you to be a Republican. You are thereby conceding the Republicans are the party which is looser in practice in terms of their values. I agree wholeheartedly.

I think you have a good point. Why do you think Republicans aren't more transparent like you? Why do you think that Republicans instead make a big part of their platform preaching phony "family values" that they do not really hold?

Interested to hear your responses.

"because Republicans have a morality problem"


hmmm i don't know about that. I was a registered democrat, did lots of stuff that was immoral. I've been pretty clean since i've registered myself as a republican.

If that's what you really think I meant, then good for you and I don't think it's worth me responding further.

You seem honestly confused and this thread is not easy to follow so please let me explain.

The thread started off with the fact that Stormy Daniels, a porn star politician considering running against admitted prostitute-frequenter Republican Senator David Vitter, decided to convert to being a Republican. The reason she gave was she was inspired by the corrupt Republican spending at a lesbian bondage club:

"“After months of careful deliberation and consult as to the true nature of my political affiliation I am ready today to declare that should I seek the office of US Senator from the great state of Louisiana that I will do so as a Republican.

“While this decision has not been an easy one, recent events regarding Republican National Committee fundraising at Voyeur, an LA based lesbian bondage themed nightclub finally tipped the scales. ”As I have said for well over a year, it is time that our government and our tax policy begin rewarding entrepreneurship and creativity again. It is time again to inspire positive risks and out-of-the-box thinking in the interest of growing a strong economy and a strong America.

“For me, this spirit can be summed up in the RNC’s investment of donor funds at Voyeur. ”As someone who has worked extensively in both the club and film side of the Adult Entertainment Industry, I know from experience that a mere $1900 outlay at a club with the reputation of Voyeur is a clear indication of afrugal investment with a keen eye toward maximum return. ”And I firmly believe that it is precisely this type of creative and calculated investing that we, as taxpaying Americans, should expect not only from our political parties but from our government. The American taxpayer deserves consistent conservatives who reject wasteful spending and unwarranted government intervention in the private sector.

“As is the case with so many of my fellow Louisianans, I have been a registered Democrat throughout my life. But now I cannot help but recognize that over time my libertarian values regarding both money and sex and the legal use of one for the other is now best espoused by the Republican Party.”"

The GM interpreted the porn star joining the Republican Party as evidence that the Republican Party is a Big Tent Party that includes even porn stars who are attracted by corruption: she said, "Yep, guess the GOP is a Big Tent, including many who are against tax and spend."

I responded:

1. Her (the GM's) argument that Republicans welcome into their party porn stars attracted by Republican corruption, i.e. that Republicans have a problem with corruption, does not prove that Republicans have a big tent. This was me summarizing the GM's argument you were quoting. I happen to agree with the GM on this point that the Republicans are corrupt and attract people who like corruption, such as Stormy Daniels and Republican Senator David Vitter (and Republican Senator John Ensign, and recent Republican Senator Larry Craig, and recent Republican Senator Stevens, and Jack Abramoff and his gang of indicted/convicted Republican Representatives in Congress).

2. Republicans are not against taxing and spending. They are tax and spenders of the worst kind. They spend and spend and run up huge deficits that will only make future generations pay later far more taxes with lots and lots of interest.

So basically, you were responding to the GM's point, which since she expresses the views of a stout Republican I do not think she intended or thought through to its logical conclusion.

"The liberal thinks it's okay to condemn, ridicule, mock, and desire silence of people who have long ago spoke of personal values."

I am not mocking you. I am suggesting that you support people and a party that clearly do not practice what they preach. Republican politicians are mocking you, gm-marla, with their big spending big government, interventionist, anti-personal freedom policies, and their lip service to family values while they hired prostitutes, cheated on their wives, wasted your contributions in lesbian bondage clubs, spent taxpayer money and abandoned their duties on junkets to Argentina to see a secret lover, and pushed policemen around who caught them engaging in indecent behavior in a men's airport bathroom. This kind of corrupt, immoral, non-family values behavior is not to mention how Republicans spent just as big as Democrats and extended a recessionary stimulative tax cut into a period of economic expansion while engaging in a costly unnecessary war and passing a massive unfunded Medicare prescription drug program to boot. Very irresponsible fiscal policy gm-marla.

This is your party. These are your politicians. This is who they are. And it certainly does not match the words coming out of their mouths. They are mocking you gm-marla. You are being mocked all right. But it is not by me or Democrats.

This is a large part of the reason why right-wingers have formed the Tea Party. They are tired of this kind of behavior. They do not trust the Republican Party. They are forming their own party. And if you think they are going to take Republicans for their word after the kind of behavior the Republicans have engaged in during the past decade, I've got some news for you. They ain't.

The Republicans need to get their house in order and reform Mr. Murdoch's media spin machine, or its going to be lights out within the next decade.

I think it's kind of sweet that Republicans let prostitutes into the big tent...rather than just slipping them in the back door of their offices and hotel rooms like the Democrats do. LOL!

>>> Nope, I disagree that because Republicans have a morality problem means they are a big tent party.

The Republicans are a values and standards party...unlike the Dems who will pretty much accept anyone old enough to vote...including illegals, dead people and cartoon characters.

>>> My point was just the opposite. The Republican tent has shrunk to exclude those who are for deficit reduction,

You've obviously missed the point of the Tea Party entirely. !!!SHOCKER!!!

>>> non-interventionist foreign policy

Like sending thousands of troops to Afghanistan and violating the sovereign borders of Pakistan to blow people up without a trial?

>>> and personal freedom from government intrusion like spying.

Like Barry's warrantless wiretapping and his healthcrap bill that will require doctors to report patient information to the government?

>>> That is why many moderate and Goldwater Republicans voted for Obama.

And why the majority of the people regret voting for the Obamessiah.

>>> And we know from Katrina, the gay fearmongering and ballot initiatives and attacks on the nomination of the first Latina Supreme Court Justice and throwing overboard of the first Latino Attorney General how Republicans feel about minorities.

Unlike Obama's racist supporters, conservatives feel we should elect someone to high office based on experience and accomplishment instead of skin color.

>>> Let's see how Michael Steele fares . . . .

Would that be the black Michael Steele? Boy, when libs step in it, they really step in it. LOL!

>>> And take away the Religious/Morality appeal by not practicing what you preach and that leaves who for the Republicans . . . . ? Hint: the tent is gone - there is just one luxury estate for a few right-wing billionaires who don't want to pay taxes on their big chunk of our economy and/or who own a media empire like Fox.

Say, you're not referring to the Barry regime that's peopled with tax cheats and communists, are you? Or backed by corrupt, tax-dodging tycoons like George Soros and corrupt union leaders?

>>> Feel free to deny it all while the Republican Party collapses over the next five to ten years.

Yeah, it'll be fun to see the Republicans collapse back into power in November. LOL!

>>> Nope again. That is exactly the point. The left does not claim to be the party of moral authority

The the Dems record, I should hope not.

>>> to nearly the same degree as those proud, self-righteous family values Republicans who have wrapped themselves up with Religion with a capital R, and even have a name for themselves in the Christian Right or Religious Right. Think Pat Robertson, Gerry Falwell, James Dobson, Family Research Council and all the rest.

Or think Jeremiah Wright...or Pat Pfleiger...Jim Wallis...or Louis Farrakhan...god (small "g") the list just goes on and on...

>>> The left is not the party that launched the program to spy on Americans without a warrant.

No, the Dems are the party that railed against it but then voted to authorize wireless wiretaps and then have Barry, who both railed against it and then authorized it, decide to keep up this despicable policy...except that he's probably using it to spy on his political opposition rather than terrorists, as Bush did.

The most fascinating thing about the idiot Dems is that, after a decade out of power, they had grown SO corrupt and SO out of touch with the American people that it only took 14 months for the country to see them for the scabs they are and turn on them. They took a monumental opportunity to bring the country together and dashed it on the shoals of their corruption and socialism...and now they'll be relegated back to the fringes where they belong. Thanks, Dems...for handing us a "see what you get when you elect Dems" platform to campaign...and win...on.
