Well-written, and flaming.

good point trixie, which is why I say wait for the trial.

The advantage in this case is that there will be plenty of eyes & ears on the trial. That is not a failsafe, however, as we saw in the Libby case.


Trixie, the parent-child relationship is a lifetime reality. It is immaterial that two out of his four kids are over 18. And I said specifically that I would give him a pass on whether he committed a crime, since all the facts are not out. I could also give him a pass on Playing Insider online for the purpose of writing about the sex trade. Hell, without the business about the photos, who cares if he enters online chat rooms for his own recreation? Except, of course, for the fact that he's a public figure, which additionally makes his children public, by extension. Except, secondly, for the fact that he referenced his very own children in this fantasy conversation. Now the 2 boys in high school can be expected to be exposed to ridicule or at the least, humiliation. You think their classmates are not aware? They know exactly who the father of these boys are. Doesn't matter even if this sex worker was a set-up (entrapment), and it was all a conspiracy. Why in the name of the Almighty would anyone with a pure heart ever, ever consider discussing fantasies about his OWN children online, when he's smart enough to know that nothing online is ever ultimately private. Shame on him.


whoops, meant who the father of these boys *is,* not "are."
The parent-child boundaries, prohibiting sexual intimacy (including publicly fantasizing about that, even fictionally) are lifetime boundaries, whether the child is 2 or 32.
A few years ago I remember one evening on the air when he talked about regretting something "really, really stupid" that he had done, that he "had screwed up" really badly & wondered out loud if he could ever be forgiven. In retrospect now, I see what he was referring to. Yes, some of us can make horrendously stupid mistakes, but most of us don't bring along our progeny in the process, to share in our ignominy.


Wow, it is the apocalypse. Next we will see Rachel Maddow with hair in her teeth. Is it not be expected of one who does this type of thing in the SF area. Character and moral inadequacies abound on the left without fear of incrimination. It does not surprise me that as we allow our impulses to dictate our conduct that we experience more and more amazement by the "what me worry" crowd. It is ingrained in their minds to just do it if it feels good. Nothing is wrong with anything I do, until I get caught. Then shift the blame to my environment. A more classic study of pedophilia and denial I may never see. And why shouldn't his political opponents revel in the pig slop? It is the pig who created it in the first place. Wallow I say...Wallow and prepare to defend yourself when next the winds of crime blow your way. We will be watching and enjoying every minute of it. Isn't that what pubic persona's are about? Entertainment. I wonder how long it will be after the conviction that Air America welcomes him back....And flogs anyone who challenges their complicity in his crime?


Since this is a federal case, does anyone know if the courthouse will be closed to spectators? If not, I imagine there will be quite a line for seats for this one. In either case, we can expect quite a media rush on that June date in SF. Again, so sad for his children. Families have been permanently destroyed for crises far less tawdry than this.

Wow...you all sound like a buch of old women gathered over the back fence, spreading gossip about what you "know."


I know only what was published, nothing else. Would not be interested in attending the trial even if I were paid to do so. Merely commenting on the high visibility of it due to the subject matter & how highly visible he has made HIMSELF. Any high-risk behavior of any sort always carries that corresponding outcome with it, but particularly if one is a public figure. I haven't made statements here about anything except what has been published.

Sherry Perussina

There was a report that came out the other day from a well known psychiatrist who has made a a very important diagnosis. The results of his and others studys of human nature throughout history is that to be a "liberal, progressive" or however you care to refer to yourselves you know which ever term makes you "feel good" is a mental illness. I would say that after reading the comments here and experiencing "liberals, progressives" standing and screaming in the streets I whole heartedly agree with that diagnosis. I agree because when one is in their mentally challenged state of mind they can never admit their thought process is wrong what they believe in is wrong their heroe's are flawed. They always look externally at everyone else's "flaws" and because others have flaws it makes theirs and their heroes non existent. It doesn't matter how awful the truth is about a "liberal's or Progressive's" heroe, it is never as bad as some "conservative's or some Priest's" because after all they know better their in with god they said they would be good. "Liberal's, progressive's never said they would be good. They did say however as Bernie Ward did they would be watching all those hated people not in the "liberal, progressive" tribe of anything goes and they would rant and scream and complain and demonize any one who was not perfect until they ruined their families, their lives and their ability to earn a living because after all that is what you get when you said you would be a good person. "Liberal's and progressive's have made it their duty to be judge, jury and executioner and now it has come home once again to roost and what do the "liberal's and progressive's" do? They go external and try to blame it on somebody else. Bernie Ward is a pervert and if you cannot see that maybe you should look in the mirror. He hid behind being the watcher, judge, jury and executioner of others. What is that saying "Live by the sword, Die by the sword". In Bernie's case Live as an accuser, Die as an accused!!!!
