Gubernatorial debate by the lake

The candidates are here are the Hilton, circulating among the approximately 100 people gathered for this debate sponsored by Associated Industries of Vermont.

At this moment, Republican Gov. Jim Douglas and Democratic House Speaker Gaye Symington are about one table apart, shaking hands. Hope they don't accidentally back into each other. Independent Anthony Pollina is at the back of the room.

I got a little advance information about the questions. They will cover all the issues important to this business audience -- from electric rates and how to control them, to whether there should be a moratorium on new road projects so the available funding could be spent to catch on maintenance on roads and bridges. There is expected to be a question about drug and alcohol in the workplace, whether economic development should focus just on green enterprises, plus some of the usual questions about taxes and health care.

The debate is scheduled to run about two hours.

More later.

-- Nancy Remsen

Gaye Symington is running for Governor?
 
Has Gaye Symington hired a debate coach yet?
 
Who is Gaye Symington?
 
I don't think that the Republicans should talk about issues.

They should just make personal attacks. That seems to be the only thing that works for them.
 
Right on. We need more issue-oriented discussions, like Michelle Obama's latest "don't vote for her because she's cute"! And white?
 
Right on, Bubba! America isn't ready for a black president.

She said that, eh, bubbakis? Feel free to produce the quote.

Gee, bupkis. Imagine that.

Psycho Sarah's just another just another cluelessly-corrupt, incompetent-trash, Alaska gop politician who's refusing to cooperate with a bipartisan investigation of her conduct in office after claiming that she not only would cooperate with the investigation, she welcomed the opportunity.

That, of course, was before the first dude refused to honor a subpoena.

Gee, another gop who thinks he's above the law. How refreshing.

Given those facts, why the hell else would anybody vote for Palin.

Truth be told, given the facts and the Palin/McCain record, if this about issues and fact or a prize fight, the ref would have stopped it.

Christ, McCain didn't know what day it is, how many houses he owns or what kind of car he drives before the fight even started and Obama's been landed every punch he's thrown since the opening bell.

McCain may own a lotta houses but they're all in Pallookaville on the corner of Dream Street and Canvas Back Court.

Face it, if it wasn't for ignorance, racism or both, Obama would be be up 90-10 over McCain.

Sure, that 10 percent would still be ignorant, Anti-American, racist trash, but ten percent is a more acceptable number than 40 percent.

That's a hell of a lot of wasted oxygen. Ten percent is wasteful enough.

Always a pleasure.
 
Oh Hi Jiffy.

I thought you were working late tonight at your imaginary job.

Yeah I know dumb, scum, blah, blah, blah, Yiddish profanity, blah, blah, blah, wing of bat, eye of newt, blah, blah, blah, homo-erotic threat, blah, blah, blah, sports jibberish, etc.

You really need some new material Coop.
 
Left-wing logic:

Racism: when 60% of whites don't vote for Obama.

Pride in their color: when 95% of blacks vote for Obama.

Idiots.
 
Dead-on. It all fits with the Liberals need to apologize for everything. You see it in everything they do.

It would be nice to see them actually show some pride in all the great things this country has accomplished. They need to learn they are in place to represent the best interests of America, not every single special interest group around the world that makes noise.
 
The libs are getting more and more disgustingly virulent in their attacks on John McCain and Sarah Palin. Guess the easy victory and dreams of unlimited entitlements are starting to slip away from these bottom-feeding miscreants. Hey, I mean you, jw! Get a JOB!
 
The attacks against Palin are disgusting.

You know what's great about Palin? She made rape victims pay for their own rape kits. That's right. Why should the government help out these people? If they'd work a little harder they could afford their own rape kit.

So what if she tried to fire the town librarian because she wouldn't ban the books that Sarah didn't like? Thoes books are bad anyhow. Why would you even want to read them? You shouldn't have that choice.

So back off from Sarah. She can kill a moose and that's what counts!
 
She never made rape victims pay for any "kits". As mayor, she asked a rhetorical question of the librarian about banning certain books, which of course she never did and the librarian was just fine with it. Only two Palin lies today? The leftist scum is slipping!
 
Rape victims in Wasilla had to pay for their own rape kits.

http://alaskareport.com/news98/x61620_rape_palin.htm

Sarah Palin is brave to be the only mayor in Alaska to endorse that practice.

Rape victims should have to pay for their own kit. Who even knows if they are telling the truth?
 
From the Anchorage Daily News:

WASILLA -- Back in 1996, when she first became mayor, Sarah Palin asked the city librarian if she would be all right with censoring library books should she be asked to do so.

"According to news coverage at the time, the librarian said she would definitely not be all right with it. A few months later, the librarian, Mary Ellen Emmons, got a letter from Palin telling her she was going to be fired.

http://news.bostonherald.com/news/2008/view.bg?articleid=1117009&srvc=2008campaign&position=15
 
You think that the government should buy you any book that the local librarian likes?

As Mayor, Sarah Palin had a patriotic duty to protect her citizens from certain kinds of "literature" that has the potential of poisoning weak minds. Get over it.

The cultural elites can cry in their fancy books. Sarah Palin is a patriot.
 
What's sad is that people deny that she has done this stuff.

She should just stand up and say:

"Some books in the local library are not good and should be banned!"

and

"Rape victims should pay for their own rape kits because this isn't a socialist society"

She has nothing to hide. She should stand up and be proud of her record.
 
The libs should all worry about rape kits and library books. Meanwhile, Obama's financial advisor's Franklin Raines and James Johnson, are mum on fixing the current trillion dollar mess that they helped create.
Raines worked for Fannie Mae and collected $96 million over five years and refused to listen to Bush and McCain when they suggested more controls be put into place. The Senate Banking chair Chris Dodds and the House chair Barney Frank went nuts when Bush suggested they inact more controls. James Johnson and Jamie Gorlick also stole 40+ million (bonuses) for ruining Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Dobbs, Obama, Kerry and Clinton collected over $500 million in campaign contributions and all voted in unison to tell Bush hands-off.
Obama is a crook, a fraud and a phony.
Meanwhile, Pelosi wants the market investigated- but no mention of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac- how convenient. Obama is mum on how to fix the mess!!! Why don't you ask the ones who f***** it up, they all worked for you!
 
Meanwhile, McCain admits that he, "doesn't really understand economics".

McCain's top economic advisor is Phil Gramm, who is a paid lobbyist working for the very banks that brought on this economic melt down.

"I thought ..."

And that's where your story falls apart and your ignorant anonymous ass lost all semblance of credibility whatsoever, little factually-challenged fraudulent fella.

Of course, your next material will be your first, little fella.

Always a pleasure.

Nah, it wasn't the banks, the brain-dead, gop-slime "thinking" that there was nothing wrong with the economy that more deregulation wouldn't cure and no fire that a few thousand gallons of jet fuel couldn't put out, it was the nation of whiners who did it.

The fact that McCain thought Gram was "knowledgeable" on economic issues in a good way or that one meeting with Psycho Sarah Palin revealed his soul mate and her relative proximity to Russia made her an expert on foreign policy who's qualified to be President tells you all you need to know about the scope and depth of McSame's cluelessness.

Alaska is home to Mt McKinley. McKinley is the tallest peak in North America. That doesn't make Palin an expert on outer space.

"As Mayor, Sarah Palin had a patriotic duty to protect her citizens from certain kinds of "literature" that has the potential of poisoning weak minds. Get over it."

That's the same argument the Nazis, the Soviets, the Klan and every other piece of "bible thumpin'" and/or "book burning" piece of totalitarian trash that's ever come down the pike in the course of world history has used.

How's that workin' out for your ignorant anonymous asses so far, little fraudulent fascist fella?

"The cultural elites can cry in their fancy books. Sarah Palin is a patriot."

Psycho Sarah is ignorant, Anti-American trash spewing psychotic Anti-American trash for psychotic, Anti-American trash.

Like you, psycho sarah doesn't have a patriotic bone in her body.

Unlike your ignorant anonymous ass, she's just got the meshuggah-metaphorical psychotic "stones" to sign her name and stand behind her brain-dead, bigoted-trash bupkis.

Always a pleasure.
 
Why Coopy you are sounding like an elitist? How can that be?...a regular guy like you.

It does explain your fondness for Barack and the guys.
 
Yale-educated, silver-spoon-livin' George Bush isn't an elitist?
 
Phil Gramm is not on McCain's payroll and hasn't been since he called you guys a bunch of "whinners". But, Raines and Johnson are on Obama's payroll and they are 2 of the biggest reasons Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac failed.
 
Obama sends 30 investigators to Alaska and all they find is that Palin MAY have asked to ban books from the library- WOW- what did that exercise cost Obama?
Banning books is horrific compared to Obama casting the deciding vote in IL to allow a full term baby born alive after a botched abortion to lay on the table in the hospital and die. It takes a real sicko to compare the two-banning books (if she really did) and killing a full term baby!!
 
So much Anti-American nekwit nonsense, so little time.

NEK...

"Obama sends 30 investigators to Alaska and all they find is that Palin MAY have asked to ban books from the library- WOW- what did that exercise cost Obama?"

Proof, Nekkie boy? Evidence?

Of course not.

"Banning books is horrific compared to Obama casting the deciding vote in IL to allow a full term baby born alive after a botched abortion to lay on the table in the hospital and die."

Ah, the ol' newsmax/worldnutdaily psycho-gop-slop shuffle.

Gee, now who coulda seen that comin'.

Evidence? Proof? Of course not.

"It takes a real sicko to compare the two-banning books (if she really did) and killing a full term baby!!"

And you're just the psychotic gop-slop sicko for the job, nekkie boy.

Congrats. You're found your nekwit niche.

Always a pleasure.
 
Coopslop- If you don't read the news I can't help you. Your standard response- where's the proof- well you must be the only idiot that keeps his head in the sand day & night.
Get a life!
 
So, nekkie boy, what you're saying is that you have no reputable sources to cite in an effort to substantiate your psychotic slop, so, once again, you're still dumb, you're still scum and your ignorant anonymous ass has got bupkis.

Thanks for clearin' that up, little fella.
 
that's not what he said Coop. That is what you would like to think since the facts conflict with your view of the world

"that's not what he said Coop. That is what you would like to think since the facts conflict with your view of the world"

Is that right? Then where's nekkie boy's evidence to support his psychotic slop, little fella?

Just how am I preventing him from citing his sources, little factually-challenged/fraudulent fella?

Say goodnight, greasy.
 
Well, isn't this just a purely disgusting display of immaturity. Asking for the citation of reputable sources to support your arguments is hardly a bad thing. Doing so while also namecalling is completely unacceptable. Responding to a request for the citation of reputable sources by replying in kind to the namecalling is equally unacceptable. If this is representative of what Vermonters can produce in the way of thinking and discussion, then I don't know why we even bother with a democracy.
 
For what it's worth if JWCoop10 )AKA Jeffrey W. Cooper of Montpelier) is up to his usual game he and NEK are the same person.

Cooper enjoys being the center of attention so he posts repetitive abusive nonsense under a primary identity then posts oposition and support under other names.

He's not stupid, he's just an idiot.
 
Gee, first I'm bubba, now I'm NEK - I can't wait to tune in to see who your ignorant anonymous ass will have me be tomorrow, little nameless-nitwit fella!

"Anonymous"

"For what it's worth if JWCoop10 )AKA Jeffrey W. Cooper of Montpelier) is up to his usual game he and NEK are the same person."

Well, I'm wager NEK will be almost as pleased to hear that as I am, little factually-challenged fraudulent fella.

It's as worthless as all the psychotic slop your ignorant anonymous ass spews, schmuck.

That's why your ignorant anonymous ass keeps posting my name and address while periodically threatening my wife, little fella.

Evidently, it's the only thing you can manage to get straight without misspelling or screwing it up six ways to Sunday since, apart from that, ya frequently can't spell what ya can't substantiate.

For some strange reason, ya always manage to spell my name, address and phone right. At least that way, ya can cluelessly claim your slop isn't totally devoid of fact.

So, should we wait for nekkie boy to tell you to substantiate your ignorant anonymous ass's latest load of delusional dreck, little fraudulent fella, are ya gonna fold your hand and slither away like your ignorant anonymous ass always does when I call your bluff now and get it over with?

I'm shocked.

Well, you're a clueless cretin, little nameless-nitwit fella, but you're consistent. I'll give your ignorant invertebrate ass that much.

"Cooper enjoys being the center of attention so he posts repetitive abusive nonsense under a primary identity then posts oposition and support under other names."

My own "oposition", eh?

Then I'm glad your ignorant anonymous ass will be only too happy to fail to substantiate your psychotic slop in this case as it's always been, little fella.

Attaboy. As ignorant anonymous trash with bupkis goes, you're one consistent clueless-cretin, little fella. I'll give ya that much.

"He's not stupid, he's just an idiot."

Clearly, your ignorant anonymous ass is capable of chewin' that gop-slop gum and squawkin' at the same time, little fraudulent fella.

Too bad that, postin' my name and threatenin' my wife and the extent of your ignorant anonymous ass's act.

Always a pleasure.
 
"For what it's worth if JWCoop10 )AKA Jeffrey W. Cooper of Montpelier) is up to his usual game he and NEK are the same person."
PLEASE- Being called JWCoop is an embarrassment and insult I wouldn't wish on anyone.

"PLEASE- Being called JWCoop is an embarrassment and insult I wouldn't wish on anyone."

Hey, he's the nameless-nitwit who said it, nekkie boy. If you've got a beef, take it up with his ignorant anonymous ass. He's the one spewin' the psychotic slop.

I don't like that schmuck in question claimin' you and I are the same person any more than I liked it when he was claimin' I was bubbakis a month or two ago.

As if.

You're all ignorant anonymous trash with bupkis, but that still leaves ya a rung or two above his ignorant anonymous ass.
 
Still telling that lie about me threatening your woman Jiffy?

Sad I guess you really are stupid after all.

Sorry to underestimate how useless you are pal.

Now run along and cook up some more imaginary friends.

Tomorrow is going to be another busy day of being king of the trolls for you so you'll need the help.
 
Nice try, little nameless-nitwit fella.

Even these loons know what lyin' slime ya are, schmuck.

Did ya really think bubbakis and nekwit were gonna appreciate ya lyin' about them like your ignorant anonymous ass has made a life of repeatedly postin' my name, threatenin' my wife and lyin' about me, schmuck?

Just how does that help your ignorant anonymous ass's clueless-cretin credibility, douche bag.

Christ, even the ignorant anonymous trash community thinks you're scum now, schmuck.

Go cheney yourself and slither back under your rock, little stoneless wonder boy.

Disappear.
 
Pollina for Governor
