Perhaps this is being blown out of proportion, but how stupid/unlucky can this guy be to have had such a name on the hunting camp he leased? http://www.msnbc.msn.com...

Surely there 103 things more important? No of course not, thats modern democracy for you.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Wait, how is the paint job up to a lessee?
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Who cares? He's supposed to change the name of his ranch because the word fell out of favor? Seems silly to me.

There used o be a fair number of places, particularly in the West with offensive names. Some time around the 60s and 70s topographic maps were cleaned up. I recall a particular town, I think in Utah, that was named by miners; the name was changed to "Intercourse" on official maps. There were hills and other geographic features named with various unacceptable words that would not have been widely accepted at the time, but before they were widely known, they just stuck.

Perry was not responsible, of course.

Exactly, and the resources that went into desperately finding something race related. Meanwhile there are thousands of surface to air missiles missing in Libya, and hardly a peep about it in the news.

I personally find no problem with the camp name. Even if one finds the language offensive (Which I don't) there is still the right to freedom of speech.

He has the right, yes, but that doesn't mean that using that right shouldn't factor into his viability as a candidate. I have the right to insult everyone in America, but that doesn't mean America would disregard that when considering me for election.

That said, this issue is being overblown to ridiculous proportions. If there was any meat behind this, it would have been used years ago for elections in Texas.

Why is this not important? This guy is running for the highest office in the land.

The Dailyshow actually did something on this.

It was pretty funny.

It's not important because his campaign is already crashing down.
