I think it's beautiful how my fellow conservatives give each other blowjobs up and down this forum.

If you're offended by public displays of conservative man-on-man love, you don't have to look.

Blowjobs are nice, but the Wisconsin handshake will suffice.

Sexism - always the lefties' preferred fallback position.

I said "It's weird to watch you guys work each other up." and you said "sexist." Are you perpetually offended?

Cornbread, help him out!

By what? Their attempts to use sexism to inhibit dissent? Not only am I not perpetually offended, but I'm not even offended.

other i, were you able to discern the sexism in the comments of Stella_Guru, Talon Newsman, and Phil and Detritus above? (That's a yes or no question.)

edit to add: "Detritus" to "Stella_Guru, Talon Newsman, and Phil"

Hint to Larry: "sexism" doesn't simply mean "talk about sex".

I thought the robocall story had to be fake because it seemed obvious nobody would be stupid enough to be influenced by it. Clearly I was wrong.

Beyond multiple complaints to the Government Accountability Board, what proof that these deceptive robocalls went out is possible at this time? Even if they did not dissuade one person from voting, the important matter is whether they violated state election laws and if so, will those violations be prosecuted.

Definitely true Henry. Even if no one paid any mind (other than to report it to the GAB, or Barrett's campaign), it's still a violation of election laws. Hopefully, the can track down the callers though, I'm not sure what the track record for prosecuting this type of activity is. I can't recall a single news item regarding charges being filed for similar calls of this nature.

Always wanting to jump the gun Henry? The important matter would be first to establish whether the allegations are true. Anyone can file a complaint. Complaints are not evidence, they're just allegations.

Second, if it was established that the calls were real, to try to determine who initiated them. Then one could move on to your "important matter."

So you believe the media should not report on crimes until someone is convicted?
