The difference is that Hovde is in this to enrich himself and his buddies. And please, be a moron and come back to claim that is what is Herb did.

Strange, the left is also employing their usual game plan of peddling lies, fanning fear, appealing to bigotry and suppressing the vote. Just ask Mike Tate.

Don't forget promoting class warfare as well Greg... That whole divide and conquer thing.

I know if he has 4-million to spend on a campaign, he can't have any idea what it is like being me and there is no way he can posibly know how to represent me.
