It was an historic win...
There were only 2 other recall votes for Governor in U.S. History.
One in North Dakota and Grey Davis in California. But of these recalls, the sitting Governor lost the recall.
Last night, CNN had a story about how this recall thing happens all of the time. That story has since been pulled. CNN also had breaking news about a "narrow" victory. CNN must have just pulled their slanted, already written stories, and posted them without even looking at facts.

What a disgusting post Nikon
But, that's what we come to expect from liberals.

Nikongirl's post was taken down.
Just an FYI to you who will call me a bunch of names.

It will be interesting to see how much non-union workers in Wisconsin enjoy longer their workdays, lower pay, worse working conditions and even fewer benefits.

Yes, it was - my apologies...to you both. It was silly (and yes, disgusting) Shameful.
Bad girl Nikon!
Man this crow doesn't taste as good as it looks.

Wow, THAT post gets taken down, but the name-calling, hostile, racist and inciteful/inflammatory posts remain?
The MB BB has officially jumped the shark. All that remains in the water is the bloody chum.

Obviously boy parts and bodily functions are off limits on MB but NOT calling me a God-damned liar over and over - that's A okay with them. Sexist much?

It's absurd. The only reason I visit here every now and again is just to see if anything has changed.
But it's like Groundhog Day here. Same posts, same opinions, same YELLING AT EACH OTHER!!!
It's quite frightening actually. And I suspect going forward will be more of the same two or three posters starting inciteful threads and the same five posters SCREAMING AT EACH OTHER, with same poster always scurrying to get the LAST WORD.
Over and over and over again. B-O-R-I-N-G.

A true bellwether!
Like the day Sarah Palin was nominated!
Like Richard Nixon's 2nd inauguration!
Like Dewey defeating Truman!
This proves global cooling is real and that Obama will lose.
And that union thugs can no longer negotiate better salaries, benefits and working conditions for those slacker teachers and state employees!

We apologize for any confusion or frustration we may have caused by pulling Nikongirl's post. The nature of the post was inappropriate, which is why we felt the need to take it down. Please remember this is not a political board, therefore we are in no way trying to police the tone of your conversations or the topics you choose to discuss.

mbcomm.."please remember this is not a political board.."
i'm reminded of the old line about a "non-profit" business:
"..yeah, it's non-profit..we didn't PLAN it that way, but that seems to be how it's turned out, doesn't it?"..:-)

Accepted as such -
However I am asking you now - here on board (I sent an email that did not get a reply from you)
WHY you left all Cruz's posts up calling me a 'God Damned liar' repeatedly?
I didn't receive an answer -
I DID NOT call anyone a name, I was being silly - in jest - inappropriate - for some perhaps.... it was yanked in a half a second...Cruzo' calls people names all day and night and is allowed to do so without so much as a peep from MB. Why is that?

I wish Nikon's post was put back up.
It was inappropriate, but many posts on this board are inappropriate, from both sides.
But if "name calling" is a reason to pull a post, there would be very few liberal posts in my opinion.

would appreciate if the media bistro coordinator could explain further what are MB's standards for pulling or not pulling posts.
