re: Why did our President only call on female reporters during his press conference? - Holden Caulfield
[quote]Are you asserting that Oduma accidentally called on only female reporters? [/quote] No, it was no accident. But I doubt if the reason for doing so would prove to be very interesting. ...

[quote]Couric always asks harball "gotcha" questions. Remember when she totally blindsided Palin with "What do you like to read"? That was harsh.[/quote] Palin's performance during that interview was borderline pathetic. I think she went into it with a chip on her shoulder and was ill prepared and ...

re: Notre Dame women's basketball " I can't breathe" shirts - Holden Caulfield
[quote]Wearing something like this would take actual courage[/quote] I agree that would take courage. Its sad that it would take courage to wear a pro life shirt at a Catholic university but they would probably be destoyed in the media had they done so. ...

[quote]Dude, it has nothing to do with asking hardball questions. [/quote] Yes it does, dude. Gender shouldn't matter if pertinent questions are being asked. Would you have been as aware of the gender discrepancy had he called on men exclusively today? ...

re: If Saints win and Panthers lose, - Holden Caulfield
If the Saints clinch this week I would expect Brees and other starters to sit out week 17. Maybe a series but no more. Would be counterproductive to risk injury in a meaningless game prior to the playoffs. ...

re: Why did our President only call on female reporters during his press conference? - Holden Caulfield
I don't care so much about the gender of the reporter as long as they're asking hardball questions. An issue arises when someone like Katie Couric asks obama his favorite color and tries to pass this off as probing journalism....

re: Obama: Sony "did the wrong thing" when it pulled the movie - Holden Caulfield
[quote]I think the only reasonable conclusion is that there's other stuff they know the hackers got that is being threatened for release and SONY views that threat as worse than the backlash they're dealing with now.[/quote] I think they threatened Sony with a Christmas day dumping of more emails....

re: Religious fanaticism, Islam and the IRA - Holden Caulfield
[quote]How many Church of England members do you believe were in Ireland in the 12th century?[/quote] And that ends that argument in its tracks. Henry had not been born. Martin Luther had not been born. The people in Ireland who accepted English rule were just as Catholic as those who didn't. It wa...

re: Prediction: Obama will set a record for Presidential Pardons - Holden Caulfield
It shouldn't be based on numbers but on who is being pardoned and for what offense. Clinton's pardon of Marc Rich, at Eric Holder's urging was one of the more egregious I can recall. Pardons aren't always a bad idea. But sometimes they're just plain sickening....

[quote]Good for them for cleaning up that mess that the gays brought on themselves! [/quote] That's actually a clever line. I appreciate clever. I suspect there were gays who reap the benefits of Pat's organization coming to the coast. By extending him some credit I in no way endorse some of ...
