    Of all the reasons to not vote for an idiot like Trump, this has to rank among the worst.

        Here’s some straight, direct, concise talk this morning from the idiot Walt referenced:

        TRUMP: Well, just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke, okay? I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So, I don’t know, I mean, I don’t know. Did he endorse me or what’s going on? Because, you know, I know nothing about David Duke. I know nothing about white supremacists and so you’re asking me a question that I’m supposed to be talking about people that I know nothing about. […]

        Well, I’d have to look at the group. I mean, I don’t know what group you’re talking about. You wouldn’t want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I’d have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them and certainly I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong, but you may have groups in there that are totally fine and it would be very unfair. So give me a list of the groups and I’ll let you know. […]

        I don’t know anything… honestly, I don’t know David Duke. I don’t believe I’ve ever met him. I’m pretty sure I didn’t meet him. I just don’t know anything about him.

        Telling it like it is, right? He knows who David Duke is btw. Met him? Who knows? He’s an idiot but he’s aware of who David Duke is.

          Can I fix this? Trump acts like an idiot, but he’s likely the most astute campaigner in the field. Either party. Discredit him at your own peril.

            I knew a Jewish kid from Miami, one hell of an amateur lightweight boxer. He told me that he was in prep school with David Duke. He said Duke was a pussy, he called Duke out in front of a bunch of students, even slapped his face. Duke would not go outside with him. Prolly wise on Duke’s part, that kid had the fastest pair of hands I have ever seen in person. IMO, Duke is a blowhard and a coward that is making a living off ignorant people.

              My sister went to LSU when David Duke was also a student there. The guy was seen on campus wearing a Sturmabteilung (Nazi Brownshirt) uniform. Duke also ran for governor of Louisiana and made it to a runoff vs. Edwin Edwards. This got a ton of national press, and it hard to believe Trump has never heard of Duke.

              The race also spawned one of the greatest lines by Edwards, who was known as a ladies man. Edwards said he had something in common with Duke. They were both “wizards under the sheets.”

            When 51% describe their reaction to a trump nomination as “scared” and another 24% say “angry” the idiot is a threat to kill the GOP (good), but not a threat to be president.

              What did those same “americans” say about Clinton, Sanders, Rubio and Cruz? If you asked me, I would say they all scare me for different reasons. There is no one candidate that fits any voters wish list. IOW, polls are unreliable for determining who a nominee will ultimately be.

          Here’s some straight, direct, concise talk by Hillary Clinton about an Exalted Cyclops in the KKK:

          “It is almost impossible to imagine the United States Senate without Robert Byrd. He was not just its longest serving member, he was its heart and soul. From my first day in the Senate, I sought out his guidance, and he was always generous with his time and his wisdom,”

          Telling it like it is, right? She knows who Robert Byrd is btw.

            As I understand it she wants to swear an oath to serve and defend a document drafted by slave owners and which called Africans 3/5ths of a person. Pretty disgusting stuff ain’t it? Of course the rational among us think that 1776 is not 1944 and that David Dukes assertions of white supremacy from the 1980’s forward is a little bit different given the context of time. But who knows perhaps you dislike Christians because of Torquemada. I mean can you really associate yourself with a religion that participated in something like the Spanish Inquisition? Likewise, if someone were to promote the torture and exile of Jews today, one certainly couldn’t complain if they also went to a Christian church earlier today. That would just be hypocritical.

              You’re so cute when you try to sound intelligent.

              So you want to count slaves as 5/5ths of a person, no?

              LOL 😉

              Not sure about the rest of you screed and what it has to do with Hillary Clinton’s love and esteem for an Exalted Cyclops in the KKK. I think you copy and pasted the wrong article from Daily Kos. It’s cute though.

                No. I want disassociate myself with people that held other people as chattel and wrote the constitution. Anybody who would swear themselves to defend a document written by people with no regard for human freedom is under suspicion as far as I’m conerned.

                BTW: You’re posts make you the dumbest big tittied blond bimbo ever.

                What Byrd did was reprehensible, but it was also 40 or 50 years before Hillary said what she did and was followed by a very long Senate term where he was a longtime party leader and disavowed his actions repeatedly.

                David Duke continues to be an avid white supremacist.

                I don’t have a dog in the fight, but conflating Hillary’s comments about Robert Byrd with David Duke is absurd.

      Just to list the comedy of errors:

      Says Trump “pirated Walker away” in spring of 1984 … it was actually spring 1983.
      Regrets Georgia’s mediocre performance in 1984 without Walker, when Walker would not have been eligible in 1984 in any case.
      Mentions Lars Tate and Rodney Hampton as filling in for Walker, but neither Tate nor Hampton were at Georgia when Walker would have been a senior. Hampton did not arrive at Georgia until 1987!
