    The article and supporting graphs are okay, but read all the comments to understand the simmering underbelly.  We are in trouble.

    Norton seeks $476K in debt relief

    Former U.S. Senate candidate Jane Norton is asking the federal government to absolve her of hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign debt.

    …and responsibility.


    “I ran the campaign for about 100 days, and took the reins at a time the campaign was hemorrhaging unpaid invoices and was free-falling in the polls,” Penry said via text messaging while on his honeymoon in Mexico.

    I thought that guy was married forever ago.

    And why would he voluntarily choose to vacation in a foreign country so dangerous as Mexico? We have awesome beaches and resort areas right here in the USA.  Is it possible he’s been abducted and this was really his only way to call for help?

    Jane Norton?  Wanting to blow off the debt?  I’m surprised that this is how she interprets her church’s prosperity theology.  I can almost understand the snakes and languages and stuff (it’s in the Bible)  but avoiding personal debt and responsibility as the path to financial prosperity?  How is that any different from stealing?

    Look, you provide goods and services to me now, even lend me money, and later, I’ll get a judge to say I don’t have to pay.  It’s ok because God wants me to be rich.

    I was doing it all wrong.

    Is this going to be like Rush on Friday?

    GOPers are picking up more converts to block Susan Rice’s nom.  Same Repugs are pretty vocal in saying J Kerry nom would sail thru … what gives?

    GOP thinks if Kerry takes it then they weaken Dems in Senate (what committees does he chair?).  Would it push MA into a special election (giving Scott Brown another run?) or just weaken the state Dems?  Wtf does Maine’s Susan Collins have against Rice?  Collins now out there dredging up African embassy attacks ftom the late 90’s — unfounded criticism but enough get Faux f*ckheads nattering about (doesn’t take much).

    This is pathetic.  Same GOP bullshit, diffrrent day.
