    the 5th anniversary of late Senator's death just passed a few weeks ago... i'm ashamed i missed it to post at the time...

    small plane crash... 9 days after the fateful and rushed "Authorization," and 2 weeks before the '02 midterms

    his name came up in another thread, and i doubt many people saw it ... so i wanted to present a thread in his name... either to discuss it, or just to call attention to any or all of these three chilling YouTube videos...

    Wellstone's anti-Iraq speech of the Floor shortly before his death (4:45)

    a tribute to Paul Wellstone (6:31)

    the assassination of Paul Wellstone (58:32)

    this man was articulate, strong, earnest, sincere and ... well, you might say, presidential... he yelled a little bit, sometimes.... but unlike Dean, with Wellstone it most certainly worked...

    Paul Wellstone is a hunted man. Minnesota's senior senator is not just another Democrat on White House political czar Karl Rove's target list, in an election year when the Senate balance of power could be decided by the voters of a single state. Rather, getting rid of Wellstone is a passion for Rove, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush and the special-interest lobbies that fund the most sophisticated political operation ever assembled by a presidential administration. "There are people in the White House who wake up in the morning thinking about how they will defeat Paul Wellstone," a senior Republican aide confides. "This one is political and personal for them."​

    R.I.P., Mr. Wellstone ... and family...

    any proof of the disingenious of the left can be seen by that spectacle that was his "funeral" at least it distugsted the people of Minnesota enough to elect a Republican to replace this lunatic.

    I was going to mention "the funeral circus" but thought twice about it, I didn't think God would like us to dig up all of that disrespectful democrat sh!t again.

    Paul Wellstone, Jeanne Garafool, Al Franken, Looney Clooney, Sean Penn & Michael Moore all birds of a feather, they were created for each other.

    His funeral was right out of Saturday Night Live.

    Its unfortunate that the best we can get out of the neocons who populate this board is empty, thoughtless hatred.

    as if they Dems had the time to get anyone in place to square off with two weeks left... and especially with the "Rove treatment" that goofy Norm Coleman was already getting from the GOP political machine... still, Wellstone was pulling away from Brooklyn born Coleman at the time he was killed... the election result had absolutely nothing to do with the memorial, where everyone in the room wondered whether Wellstone had been murdered... and the evidence is compelling, at least that an investigation should have been opened...

    regardless, i was wondering which hate-filled Reich Wing poster here would soil this memorial thread first... how telling that it was their moderator...

    more from the compassionate Christian party...

    My mistake, sorry, I was really thinking about the clown that made all the noise at the funeral.

    Every now and then I'm wrong about something.

    WOW, so you believe that a person born in another state, who wins a race only because her opponent has to leave the race, should not be in the Senate.... I can only hope that you are writing Hillary to resign now.

    What did I say about Wellstone??? I said that the DEMOCRATS put on a "funeral" that was beyond shamefull. I guess that you were equally appaulled when Republicans who showed up at the "funeral" to pay thier respects were booed and heckled (AT A FUNERAL!!!!).

    If you wondered who "murdered" Wellstone, please. Do you really think that everyone who worked on that crash for the NFTSB, was under the influences of Karl Rove? I love how you can just put this crap out there without any proof whatsoever. If it makes you sleep better file a FOI, and get a transcript of the "black box" and also remember to ask for the flight data too. Oh, what am I saying, I'm sure that has already been done, by whatever half bake lunatic website you linked to.

    Take a hint from Bill CLinton, if you want to kill people in a plane crash, make sure you do it in the mountains of a country wrapped up in a civil war, of which the side in power owes it allegance to you.

    thanks for chiming in without knowing any depth of facts about the topic... you seem to do that a lot... interesting that you'll run it, but can't show the common courtesy of responding to my private messages... there's really no doubt in my mind you're the most biased moderator in existance... at least Patters responds to people and remains respectful in thread debates... how exactly did you get the job?

    ummm... where did i remotely state anything resembling that? because i mentioned he was Brooklyn-born? do us all a favor and stick to what your debate opponent actually said, rather than make up things to argue with yourself over... i believe what i said was that Wellstone was pulling away from Coleman, despite the "Rove treatment" the GOP gave to the latter... as for your smarmy assertion out of left field, well, about all i have to say in response is this...

    what did you say? well, you called him a "lunatic" in post #5...

    classy... anyhow, it was a memorial service, not a funeral... so once again, you're just making up stuff... the fact that they were booed, loudly, displays just how many on the Hill believe the man was murdered....

    it's NTSB... but, just curious... did you even watch the video before running your mouth? my guess is: OF COURSE you didn't... because if you did, you'd be forced to absorb the evidence that screams for a criminal investigation.. also, if you did, you'd realize there was no black box in that particular plane... but, you're right... what ARE you ever saying? certainly not thinking or researching before "saying", are you?... anyhow, if you refuse to watch the video of Dr. James H. Fetzer, i'll point you to this post of mine that sums up the story... also, it was John Ashcroft who refused to allow a criminal investigation to take place... you know, the Let the Eagle Soar guy... how convenient...

    well, what would a back peddling, sugar-coating post of yours be without a side order of Clinton deflection? lol... newsflash: i don't like Bill Clinton, so you're not hurting my feelings... mmm-kay?
