      • So, dark skin is somehow antithetical to being good? When you have a megaphone, I guess you don’t need a dog whistle.

        I wonder who will get Strike Out’s vote for president?

        Truth is stranger than fiction.

        • The new poster Strike3 could be implying that a tanned individual isn’t likely to be a good guy…..or Strike3 could be using sarcasm with an eye roll, that isn’t picked up easily, to sarcastically say “surely a ‘tan’ person couldn’t be a good guy, *wink wink*. Either way – STF you don’t know and I don’t know, so for you to imply you know his/her politiical affiliation is making a lot of assumptions based on a lot of details you don’t know. Might want to reserve your judgement a bit.

          • So, Wing. Are you really going to hold this poster’s water? Amazing how tribes stick together.
