and hardly anything.



After police revealed that a Minnesota lawmaker had a sexual encounter with a 17-year-old boy, both Republicans and Democrats have banded together to ask Representative Kerry Gauthier not to seek re-election.

He should resign. Even though the 17 year old admitted he lied and said he was 18 (17 is the age of consent in my state, incidentally), the guy holds public office and should know better than to hook up with some 18 year old he met on the internet at a rest area. That's not just sleazy, it's stupid. The police are always watching those places.

Would've been a different story had this been a Republican.

Absolutely. Biden makes an ignorant racially toned remark and the NBC news gave it (I think) 20 seconds coverage. (O'Reilly and Bernie Goldberg talked about this). Akin makes an ignorant remark and it was NBC's top story last night.

If Biden were a republican, he'd be laughed off the stage. The media seems to handle it with: "Oh you know Joe, he's just silly."

He's 2nd in line to the presidency. If that doesn't keep you awake at night, nothing will.

I wonder if this guy is a member of NAMBLA.

17 year olds are too old for NAMBLA members.
