  The Left Coaster: Treasongate (Part VI): Response to GOP/Neocon talking points on the Valerie Plame expose
TALKING POINT: Karl Rove was "not the leaker".
It is quite possible this talking point is just spin or post-facto myth-making to escape prosecution, not to mention it reflects a lack of interest in securing the identity of CIA officers by reporting what he heard back to the CIA for action.
TALKING POINT: Indicting Bush administration officials for perjury or similar crimes represents a "criminalization of politics" and is a dangerous trend.

Those GOP talking points detail the Democratic connections of groups including the Center for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and American Family Voices, which are working to turn the scandal into an issue with national implications.
Like this, "you guys rely so heavily on labelling your opponents as "neocons" or dismissing their comments as mere "talking points" to do the intellectual heavy lifting for you." I know it doesn't mean anything, but the bosses seem OK with any sequence of words that I string together, so there you have it.
So-called progressives may not like the idea of talking points, but the GOP is winning the war while we're going 'round and 'round in one big circle down the drain.

 Talking Points - Our Standard For Talking Props
"Talking Points" is our name for both this interface (used for all of our talking and singing props) and for a distribution system that allows us to hook up several props and have them sing in unison and/or harmony.
Talking props equipped with Talking Points can be used interchangeably with either of these, and they can be anything (Boris is just an example).
Boris the talking skull was the first prop that we retrofitted with a Talking Points interface.

 Talking point - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Talking points are ideas which may or may not be factual, usually compiled in a short list with summaries of a speaker's agenda for public or private engagements.
A political think tank will strategize the most effective informational attack on a target topic and launch talking points from media personalities to saturate discourse in order to frame a debate in their favor, standardizing the responses of sympathizers to their unique cause while simultaneously co-opting the language used by those discussing the specific subject.
When used politically in this way, the typical purpose of a talking point is to propagandize, specifically using the technique of argumentum ad nauseam, i.e.

 Letters from the Bostonian Exile: Talking Points
Talking points are a symptom (or perhaps a cause) of the dumbing down of American politics.
Little points on a checklist of items to get on the record of the Sunday morning talk shows, they are almost never reponsive to the question posed.
Was her point that, as you put it, his position made him "an outcast from the judicial mainstream", or that, his position made him one sympathetic to rules which would make a woman's health care decisions subject to the approval of her husband.

 Talking Points
The identity of the 19 individuals who hijacked the four planes is known, but what is not known as we write is who provided the coordination, the planning, and the funding, and who provided the logistical support, both in the United States and elsewhere.
By talking about U.S. crimes abroad, you sound like you are excusing these terrorist acts.
If we are talking about terrorism of the sort exemplified by car and other hand-delivered bombs, kidnappings, plane hijackings, or now plane suicide assaults, we can reasonably guess that most of the countries on the State Department list, along with Afghanistan, Pakistan, and some other poor nations would qualify with varying degrees of culpability.

 "War On Terror" Talking Points
The purpose of these talking points is both to provide factual grounding for those feeling very uneasy about the course of the "War On Terror" but not able to readily express these sentiments, and to persuade those currently in support of U.S. policy to at the very least rethink this support.
Those with suggestions for additional links or talking points, or additional text itself, are invited to pass along your ideas.
Rather, to make the point that while a "War On Terrorism" is an admirable undertaking in the abstract (though we could do without the martial verbiage), it's virtually meaningless if only carried out upon those terrorists we don't happen to like at a particular moment in time.

 Ms. Magazine | Talking Points: How to Frame the Debate on Federal Judicial Appointments
If a federal judge takes the bench in her or his 40s — as many Bush appointees have — they could remain there for decades (the average tenure for a federal judge is about 25 years).
Justice Clarence Thomas is a case in point: He was first appointed a federal judge in 1990, in his early 40s, then named a Supreme Court justice in 1991.
Americans do not want these important protections, rights and freedoms to be reversed, but until women have full equality under the Constitution — as Rep. Carolyn Maloney points out in her commentary about the latest push for the ERA on Page 23 — our rights hang perilously on the decisions of the Supreme Court.

The religious right's "ideal" of a "sacred" marriage is one where heterosexual individuals fall in love, have children, are faithful for life, are never attracted to anyone else, and espouse a belief in God.
Although each religion can define the religious ritual of marriage within its own institution, the government is obligated to treat all people equally under the law.

I just can't see how just 7 years ago every Evangelical Christian, Republican and Neocon was talking about how former President Clinton lacked morals and how America needed a person in the White House with those qualities.
Bush told us that he didn't know how bad Hurrcane Katrina would be, then we find out In the 48 hours before Hurricane Katrina hit, the White House received detailed warnings about the storm's likely impact, including eerily prescient predictions of breached levees, massive flooding, and major losses of life and property, documents show.
Any time people oppose this man and his administration, they are destroyed by Fox News, Talk Radio, his Administration and the Republican party, just look at how they destroyed Valerie Plame just because President Bush directed Cheney to counter what former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson had said about the war in Iraq and yellowcake.

I was talking to a reporter the other day, arguing that while Bush inherited a lot of problems from Clinton, in each instance he had done everything possible to make things worse.

Amidst all the anachronistic advocacy of "sexual purity", however, I was struck both by important concessions these Christian-culture activists made to modernity and by the dualistic model their pro-abstinence mentality insists on asserting.
