Hey Groeny, how come you're too much of a coward to show up in MMR's?


You always skulk in the low number posts. As though you're scared of coming where everyone else is.


It's ok, if i were you i'd be insecure too - but i'm curious why you hide in the weeds all the time.. ?

Hey look! Kevin Groenhagen is back with more stimulating intellectual discourse! Why,  I wonder what insults he'll regale us with today? 

Can I request a "skippy" or "limp-wristed', Kevin? Those are always classics.

I see Teh Stoopid clinging to their thinly veiled bigotry.

No wonder the GOP is headed for the toilet.

It's a pity that for criminals like Jesse their apology is always 1 day late.

“Tell everybody back home I'm sorry I let 'em down, OK?”

The folks "back home" let the country down by electing this twerp and his predecessor, Mel Reynolds. This is one of those districts in which race trumps competence and integrity.

It's hard to feel sorry for him when he admitted he committed the crime.

@53_3 Teh Stoopid. The irony.

Jesse Jackson, Jr. is going to prison, yet you think the GOP is headed for the toilet. Moron.

@KevinGroenhagen 1950 is requesting you pick up the white courtesy phone. Sen. Pete Domenici is on the on end.

Well Im from the South and I learned a long time ago that when you stereotype people, you show your stupidity and ignorance.  I guess by stereotyping a whole region of the country, it makes it easier to believe your own political opion.
