Inbreeding is not something to joke about, it is no joking matter. It just makes me so angry when people assume things that isn't all true, this is 2008 he needs to get back to this century and stop living in the past. I bet he won't be getting any votes in that state. Well, atleast they know where he stands and what he believes in which atleast is him telling a bit of truth about himself. He should feel more then sorry, I think he should head on over to West Virginia and make a public apology. I live in Kentucky which borders West Virginia and I don't think all of them should get a bad name for what one or a few people do these people need respect and should be respected they work hard and put their pants on the same way everyone else does. It was a huge Insult to the state of West Virginia for him to stay such things he doesn't know much about..He can't say he personally knows each person in that state and know them well enough to say they are inbreeds. Someone needs to teach that "ol'boy "a lesson he own't soon forget maybe slap a slander case on him or something for slander, How would he like it if someone did the same to him, lumping them all together. Just because one does it doesn't mean they all do it, people need to stop judging the whole state and it's people that way. Okay..I am now stepping down from my soap box..Sory about that but he needs to go back to school and be re-educated about somethings or he is going to have more then his foot in his mouth.

Well he did say that there were Cheneys' on both sides of the family so he implied that they too were inbreed. He and Bush have been known to put their feet in their mouths too often. Neither one has any regard for their fellow man, they are where they are for the love of money not for the better of this country. You would think he would have learned something from listening to some of the stupid remarks that have come out of our presidents mouth. But then again he is just like him in that regard.

He shouldn't have done that. Didn't Robery Byrd, the W.V. Senator, call him out on this? He did the right thing by calling him out.
