Or did you do what the Wingnuts on this board did? Defend it. Claim liberals have no sense of humor.
Balance my ass.
A quote from a Republican dinner in 1998?
Got any quotes from Democrat dinners? I bet they're pure as the wind-driven snow.
I was 17 in 1998. I was about as interested in politics as George W Bush was in securing our national borders.
Also, can you not agree that an obviously horrendous attempt at humor at a political dinner is much different than the drivel spewed forth over TV claiming to be "objective, unbiased journalism"?
Would I have defended such a comment at the time? I probably wouldn't have cared. But you see, most people change over time as they learn things. I am a different person than I was 10 years ago.
Edited to add: If I were the same person in 1998 that I am today, no, I would not have defended McCain's stupid jab.
