    Recent conversations brought back up a memorable person that kind of stood out in the crowd:

    Ron Christie

    I just think Ron Christie is a faux pas in general, though he may have had a decent point here and there... just got overwhelmed by something else that I just cannot figure out.

    Christie starts off a bit bumpy, but maybe it's just jitters:


    But then we have these...








    After these back and forths, Ron went to where it would be "safer" for him



    Anyone have any interesting "political" faux pas that they can remember?

    IMO, West should be the last black man calling another black man a sellout.

    Now I don't know if this qualifies as one, but it was odd for a black man to sound like a white, while telling another black man to get out of America.



    Peace!

    In 1990, Duke announced his candidacy in the Republican primary for a U.S. Senate seat. In the end, he raised an astonishing $2.4 million and won 607,391 votes (about 60% of the white Republican vote), but lost the primary. Undaunted, he ran in 1991 against incumbent Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards, a scandal-dogged, Huey Long-style populist. Although the race was considered too close to safely call weeks before the election, a weak performance by Duke in the second debate — and political work including the famous pro-Edwards bumper sticker, "Vote for the crook. It's important" — helped tilt the balance to Edwards, who beat Duke by 22 percentage points in the Democratic primary vote. (Still, Duke once again took more than half of the white vote, racking up 671,009 votes in total.)


    Political Candidacies and Affiliations
    1975- Ran for Louisiana State Senate as a Democrat
    1979- Ran for 10th District Senate Senate as a Democrat

    1988- Ran in the Democratic primaries for President. He failed to win on the Democratic ticket; he then sought to gain the nomination from the Populist Party, where he was successful. With this success, he appeared on the ballot for President in 11 states and was a write-in candidate in a few other states.

    1988- Changed his political affiliation from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party

    1989- Ran for Louisiana State Representative in District 89 as a Republican- was successful in this race

    1990- Ran for U.S. Senate as a Republican- unsuccessful
    1991- Ran for Governor of Louisiana as a Republican- unsuccessful
    1992- Republican Presidential Primaries- unsuccessful
    1996- U.S. Senate- unsuccessful

    1999- U.S. Representative in a Special Election to replace Bob Livingston. Ran as a Republican- unsuccessful. Now U.S. Senator David Vitter won this election before later becoming a U.S. Senator.

    I thought you wasn't going to say anything, I knew I should have kept my mouth shut...:lol:

    Whats worst is when you step up to the ATM and waste your time, and everybody else that is waiting for the machine to show you what you already know.

    Then you have the nerve to act surprised

    Of course I wouldn't know anything about that:whistling:

    Peace!
