Here is a segment from the article which I thought kind of stuck out:
"A senior Republican strategist who will be advising a GOP presidential
candidate in 2008 said he did not see anything in the book that would be
a "disqualifier," but he cautioned that Obama has not yet gone through
an intense vetting process and that a problem could arise if there is
more to his story than he has chosen to share. The strategist, who spoke
on the condition of anonymity, also suggested that there will be high
tolerance for marijuana use among voters because many baby boomers
probably tried the drug in the '60s."
"high tolerance for marijuana use" This is but another example of how
chipping away ever so tiny bit by bit a society can be worn down. The
Roman empire is one example. America maybe another. So down the line
we can expect the president and members of congress actively
participating in hard drug use while running the country. This will
make a fine example to the youth. Drug use, it's ok.
Another word that continues to stick out in regards to drug use is
"tried". Everybody "tried" but didn't use? How many tons of the stuff
is smoked every year.
Police prefer arresting potheads over drunks because they tend to be
calm and cooperative. My father said that some would practically
volunteer to put on the handcuffs. OTOH drunks are often violent and
may not respond even to Tasering (he didn't have a Taser).
I don't have any problems with illegal drugs, do you?
Well as for your other questions, marijuana is illegal, against the law
as far as I know and in addition it like tobbaco smoke will get to your
lungs, plus the smoke really stinks, like you can smell it a mile away
if someone is smoking in a park or outside. Alcoholic beverages such as
beer, wine ect are not. Plus alcoholic beverages such as wine and beer
have been proven to be beneficial to your health if consumed moderately.
Marijuana has not been shown to have any medical benefit other than
perhaps a euphoric state for some terminal patients. It still remains
Marijuana has not been shown to have any health benefits.

Sex with underage people is illegal. A LOT of people had a lot of trouble
with Foley when he tried to have an affair with an underage page (well, I
guess he didn't actually TRY having the affair until the guy was >18)
So, is something ILLEGAL, or ISN'T IT?!?!?!
What I'm getting at is that *all* people are selective in their views toward
mind-altering substances. They'll crab all day long about pot because they
imagine that it's used only by a type of person they don't approve of. These
same people will say nothing about a bunch of senators leaving a cocktail
party with three sheets to the wind. Oh...wait: If it's Ted Kennedy, the
cocktails are a problem. If it's George Bush, it's not.

No, dunking your Delmont 88 with a femaile aide and then 'forgetting'
about it for 24 hours is a crime. Leaving 3 sheets to the wind is too, but
unless you causean accident, no one dies.
How the hell do you go home soaking wet and forget about it for 24 hours?!?!
What do you think of Barbara Bush driving a Plymouth Fury, rammed into
a Corvair, and killing its driver?
Or how about a drunk Dick Cheney shooting his friend in the face and
refusing a sobriety test?
Ted, Barb, and Dick all appear in the newest American Express
commercial - "Priviledge has its benefits".
