No, it doesn't. He's a Republican, appointed to the 4th(?) highest position within the DoJ by a Republican administration. These are facts. The fact that he donated to a colleague's political campaign changes exactly nothing about that.

You honestly find that donation surprising? This guy is obviously a moderate Repub, he voted for Obama because he was so turned off by Palin as VP - he's certainly not the only Republican to do so.

That's quite the logical leap there, Detective. Not very impressive deductive reasoning, to be blunt. Also, it's Clouseau.

Right back at you.

We're still at the same decision point - which is the simpler explanation, that Fried is telling the truth, or all those machinations that you posted above?

I never claimed it was impossible, just that it was more likely he was simply telling the truth, and there is absolutely no evidence to suggest he's not.

I guess we’ll just have to agree that every point you just made didn’t make sense...also, PeeWee Herman called, he wants his I know you are but what am I routine back.

I feel I've seen this sound and logical reasoning somewhere else recently, made by millions of other people. Oh wait, here it is:

Well, Helena seemed to understand it just fine, so maybe he'll explain the big words to you.

I'm certainly not going to waste any more of my time trying.

Do you post over there?

No, I don’t think so. I just asked because your quote included one of mine so I wasn’t sure if you were talking to him or me. He probably won’t remember if he was posting there or not, he seems to have a problem that way.

Sorry. I shouldn't have gone off topic. I just figured he would know what happened over there if anything.

Damn. It got very heated over there. I would read the threads but rarely post. A lot of personal shots were thrown around.

It's better over here anyway IMO.

Thanks for the info

It was pretty clear who you were talking to, IMO.

Herd just struggles a bit to keep up, bless his heart.

There is a thread discussing the demise of PoliSci on "that forum" under the Site Feedback/Questions/Suggestions forum that I started. Seems like the usual suspects might have found another "home" - link in that thread.

Maybe he Grot in trouble? (See what I did there?)

I'm not certain. He just disappeared. Perhaps PM him?
