I had forgotten why I had been banned at the Huffington Post…. now I remember.
I just got banned from HuffPo and my profile was [wiped-out] so that no one can read my comments.
Not because I am a republican troll. They have plenty of those there, and they let them post some of the most horrible comments I have seen.
I posted no calls for violence, no racist statements, no anti-Semitic comments, no profanity.
They banned me for pointing out what a witch-hunt this Blagojevich thing has become. They banned me because I posted links showing the connection between [Bank] of America and Blago’s demise.
They banned me because I pointed out that Madigan is probably on that list Rahm gave Blago’s people, and that Arianna had gone on TV the night before that came out and flat out claimed that Rahm hadn’t had any connection with Blago’s people. me, Dec. 16th 2008
Or maybe they banned me because of this…
I am not going back to Huffington Post. She is getting all kinds of press for her recent article “Character is Destiny” where she argues that in the end, the character of Rod Blagojevich is what set this in motion. That’s a fascinating theory coming from a “liberal journalist” who married a homosexual oil tycoon millionaire friend of the Bush family and then settled her plagiarism case out of court, when she stole another writer’s work and put in her book claiming it as her own. Is that “character” befitting the “destiny” she has received? me, Dec. 13th, 2008
I don’t know… it’s a toss-up. Ah, but I digress.
Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was found guilty on only one charge that had been leveled against him, the other 23 charges were dismissed in a mistrial. The judge declared the mistrial so that the case could be tried again.. talk about your double-jeopardy; “Double jeopardy is a procedural defense that forbids a defendant from being tried twice for the same crime on the same set of facts.”
