they should apply same rules

to Planned Parenthood too. In fact I can think of a lot more organizations and foundations which depend somewhat on govt funds and have political lobbyist that should fall under the same umbrella of rules as those connected with the SEC.

If (heaven forbid), Perry gets the nomination.....

.....Obama's team will be all over this. I bet they've got comments already written up. How absurdly out of touch this comment was. Her son voluntarily resigned from his job. He didn't lose it, and I bet he'll be able to get it back after the campaign. And even if he doesn't, they're not exactly broke. She can't sympathize with anything because she has no clue what the REAL unemployed are going through.

I don't think it matters who ends up with the nomination, the smear machine will go after their spouse and family.

....."He's a MUSLIM and he ISN'T AN AMERICAN!!!" but we'll see how things go.

What do you think of what Perry's wife said?

Many if not most, maybe all of those were "plants" sent deliberately there to do that so it would end up on TV cameras, who may even have been clued in to it before it was to happen. Remember the guy with the curious George doll and how he was shunned by everyone there, but he kept going around making sure cameras would pick him up, doing all he could to be seen and pretend to be part of the crowd there who was rejecting him. Dirty politics at it's worst and I will not be surprised to see it done all over again. Disgusting political tricks.

There's a difference...

There's a big difference between a person attempting to smear with a sign in a gathering or by making a statement on some blog and a large organized "machine" like Media Matters.

Or like the American Spectator

Or like WorldNetDaily. Or like Newsmax. Or like Fox.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
