It's a short piece -- that's about all I can post under "fair use." Meanwhile, didn't Senator Ted Kennedy have a similar problem a while back? Too many coincidences, methinks!

As was shown to you long ago...

NO ONE has or has had a documented "Enemies List" as long or all inclusive as Clinton (were those more links you didn't read so you could use the vapid pronouncement in ignorance of the facts again?).

Simply considering the names mentioned should have provided the HC editorial board with enough clues to avoid looking as ignorant as the piece makes them appear--names such as Jim Moore, Gordon Smith, Kennedy, Young, etc.

Moore itself is a name well known for seditious activity.

So why isn't Sir Roger Moore on the list, Ed?

Besides, if one name's congruence is all it takes to make the list, half the public would be unable to fly! Heck, I'm sure there's a seditious O'Donnell around someplace -- probably a member of the Provos!

How do you know it isn't...

or wasn't at one time? The list (actually lists) also take into account geographic location associated with the name as well as other pertinent criteria.

Have you seen the list? NO, you haven't.

You simply wanted to get in a dig about an "enemies list" forgetting or purposely ignorant of the documentation regarding Clinton's actual list.

Clinton's database is well documented.

For some reason Democrats don't want Barrett's report on Clinton's IRS shenanigans publicized.

Wonder why the Democrats are so uninterested in this abuse of executive power.

Isn't this notion just a little paranoid? I mean I know lefties are not all there anyway, buut...

And are you sure Teddy's NOT a terrorist? I guess as long as he's not actually FLYING the plane it would be safe....
