  1. There is a double standard going on. This Senator is the prime example of it. He wants to say one thing and do another. Did he for one minute stop to think about what the future would be when the truth came out? Now the real questions must be considered, such as his sincerity on voting issues such as the Iraq war, torture and financial regulation. Where does this man really stand on these things? What was his position on Katrina when Bush and Rove and Cheney sat back and did practically nothing. I personally would not trust this guy with a nickle of mine, especially in Las Vegas. Can you imagine. What's really so ridiculous and odd is that he called for Sen Craig to resign. Larry Flint, where are you when the nation needs you? Are you offereing a million dollars to someone for this ... Congressman Condit, where are you?

  2. Hey what happened to the old " What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" motto? Maybe this Promise Keeper can sue for false advertising?
