Microsoft fires Ralph Reed

According to The Seattle Weekly, Microsoft will be sending religious conservative operative Ralph Reed a pink slip with this month’s $20,000 consulting fee. It could be a result of the bad publicity Microsoft received after dropping support for gay rights legislation in the wake of threatened retaliation from Christian conservatives. Or, it could be because of Reed’s own ethical and legal problem. In any case, The Weekly reports that Reed isn’t the only Republican hired-gun accused of influence peddling, with whom Microsoft has had a long standing business relationship.

One source notes that Reed was on a Microsoft retainer while helping run the George W. Bush presidential campaigns of 2000 and 2004, raising ethical questions. But Reed now has gone a step further and filed to run for public office himself

    What does this have to do with lying, cheating voter fraud felon Democrats who stealing elections with illegal alien votes, “dead” voters, and “look what I found” votes after the election is over?

    Thank the lord they’ve seen the light and gotten rid of the filth Ralph Reed embodies. Here’s a bible thumper who professes to want religious freedom: defined as the freedom to impose his very narrow minded views on everyone else in the republic.

    Just goes to show ya there’s more to literacy than computer literacy. How did Microsoft ever get hooked up with these social and mental Neanderthals? On the basis of this, I would question the quality of Bill Gates’ private education as this is a tactical blunder of major proportions that most 7th graders could have avoided.

    Isn’t that lovely?

    Between 77%-85% of Americans view themselves as Christian… then, of course, there are Jews, Mormons, Muslims, Quakers, Amish… and whatever others I’ve forgotten.

    In as much as you are in the distinct minority (being generous, 1 out of 4) in America, it must be a real bitch being surrounded by all those “social and mental Neanderthals”, eh poon, oh ye of the party/ideology that preaches tolerance?

    I’ll refer you to Judge Bridges’ ruling after he laughs the Republicans out of his courtroom for lack of evidence.

    This thread seems to demonstrate gimmee’s juvenile characteristics in a singularly stark fashion.

    Actually “juvenile” is too grown up, I should have said “toddler characteristics.”

    Well, that certainly speaks for itself.
    You libs, you know, the tolerant types, must be so proud for such an authentic representation of your ideology.

    Be sure to mention that again the next few elections.
