Re: Republicans Who Died in Airplane Crashes
Look, the thing is that all of the democrats who are suicided and who's planes crash and die of other mysterious circumstances do so at the hands of Republicans.

All of the Republicans who die do so at the hands of their fellow Republicans.

The Neocons are completely worthless. They have no value.

When they die at each others hands it makes no impact on the world. Evil replaced by evil.

When scientists die at the hands of the Republicans this is a terrible blow to the world.

This post is no more than a distraction.

Therefore spam.

You mean, the Clinton Death List is the responsibility of Republicans?

The following is a partial list of deaths of persons connected to President Clinton during his tenure as Governor of Arkansas and/or while President of the United States and thereafter. Read the list and judge for yourself.

Re: Republicans Who Died in Airplane Crashes
Of course it is. After all their all republicans nowadays.

There is no honest party. The only difference is that the republicans don't pretend to be good people any more.

So yes it is the fault of the republicans.

Re: Republicans Who Died in Airplane Crashes
And this thread is spam.

The republicans aren't good people just because they died in plane crashes. They just didn't live long enough to do more harm.
