    Here’s a descent article on Pete Peterson, who has taken some heat from the left as of late.

    It’s worth contrasting Peterson against the vast majority of our resident trolls. Peterson doesn’t come to the table with his own, unique set of “facts” that are held to be true despite the available evidence.

    Kill, kill, kill! That’s the rightwing answer to all philosophical disagreements. If you don’t think in lockstep with them, they want to kill you! Sounds an awful lot like Hitlerism and Stalinism to me.

    Don,

    Don’t be fooled by Peterson’s apparent “reasonableness”. His freak show is a well cloaked all out assault on our social safety net. It is nothing but a right wing solution in search of a problem.

    Read some Jamie Galbraith or Dean Baker about Pete Peterson and deficit hawkery in general. Then get back to us. Thank you.

    “Don’t be fooled by Peterson’s apparent “reasonableness”.”

    I didn’t say that I agree with Peterson. Indeed, I’m very much in Galbraith’s camp in terms of the debate.

    The point is, with Peterson, one can have an actual debate. You can’t do that with our resident trolls, most of whom are given to making shit up as they go along or simply ignoring relevant facts that are inconvenient.

    lets see, chelsea marries a jew. and the typical jew at that. not only an investment banker who made his millions at goldman sachs, but his father, typically, did prson time for fraud. how wonderfully jewish. ya think bill told her if she marries a jew the media is likely to never pry their jewish controlled eyes into her private life? coincidence? i think not.

    @14
    @13 Why should white christofascist republicans have a monopoly on looting?

    i’m not arguing with that rog, and i’m not begrudging the jews getting their share of the loot, i was only pointing out what was probably good advice by bill (they didnt call him slic willy for nothing) as to how to avoid a lot of media scrutiny (ya ever see a hollywood producer indicted for cocaine use, sexual assault aka the casting couch?) they have built in immunity.

    proudtobeanass, are you serious? first, he’s like the only one, second, it was for rape of a 13 year old, a little bit different than what i was talkling about, third, none of his hollywood friends ever condemed him, cause “it wasnt rape, rape. how fucking sad and pathetic

    Apparently being a member of Congress means you are a member of elective office…

    Washington state Democratic Party Vice Chairwoman Sharon Smith said Cordero, a California native who moved to the Valley about four years ago, is a former Army intelligence analytst and veteran of Operation Desert Storm. It will be his first run for elective office.
