How 'bout you take off that skirt and we'll go a few rounds?
BTW, how's that "I will not rape kids" pledge coming?
Think we'll see it before 2015?
I have a friend who
runs a religion. He's never been asked to stop raping kids - you know why?
because he hasn't raped any kids, that's why.
Excerpt: Behold, the Undecideds. Have you heard of this
bizarre, nefarious group? The millions of faceless,
slow-blinking, mentally unattached Americans
who are, right this minute, with mere days to go before
the most historic election in our lifetime and
when faced with what seems to be the most glaringly obvious
divisions of attitude and perspective you could
possibly imagine, still "on the fence" about Obama or McCain,
love or hate, country or disco, Paris or Fresno,
oil or water, Porsche or Pinto?
Do you know anyone from this group? Those who
have the uncanny ability to stare straight at
the biggest issues and most momentous decisions
of their very lives, and shrug?
Odds are very good you do.
Because they are, apparently, legion. And pivotal.
And they are, it must be said, one of the most
baffling groups in world history. Impenetrable.
Unnerving. As such, it is perhaps a worthy experiment
to try to enter the Undecided mind, to examine
what might be going on -- or, as the case may be, not going on.
I remember after the Bush bastards stole 2004, a big Brit paper ran
a giant headline,
"How can 56M people be so f-ing stupid?"
I sure don't want to see another headline like that...
Excerpt: With fewer than two weeks until the presidential
election, there's plenty of time for surprises.
Virtually anything could still happen. But you'd
never know it from the behavior of many Republican
pundits and thinkers. Among GOP savants, the
bitterness, recrimination and finger-pointing have
already begun - a heartening sign, actually.
After eight years of lock-step conformity and near-total
fealty to the Bush administration's every destructive
whim, one wouldn't have thought they had it in them.
Needless wars ? Staggering corruption ? Illegal
wiretaps ? Kidnapping ? Secret prisons ? Torture ?
So-called conservatives have rationalized them
all. Sarah Palin, however, many cannot abide.
Alaska's winking governor, who goes around complaining
that CBS' Katie Couric asked her
'gotcha' questions like 'What magazines and newspapers
do you read ?' has become a flash point."

Excerpt: In Little Havana, once the heart of Miami's Cuban
exile community and a reliable bloc of Republican voters,
it's easy to see the changing face of Florida's
Hispanic population. At storefronts that wire money, newer
immigrants line up to send cash to Guatemala
and Honduras. At Miami food kiosks, Colombian and
Venezuelan arepa corn patties are as popular
as Cuban pork sandwiches.
The Hispanic vote in Florida -- the fourth-largest
U.S. state with 27 electoral votes -- is one of the biggest
prizes in the presidential contest. In past elections,
these voters, dominated by Cuban-Americans, have
usually backed Republicans; this year, they may
not. For the first time, Cubans no longer are the majority
of Hispanics in the state, and some younger and
less well-off members of the community are more likely
to consider voting Democratic than their elders.
That spells trouble for Grumpy, who needs to capture
Florida to win the White House
This why why the modern Electoral College blows
To win, you have to go to Florida and say "Castro
is a wanker" or whatever.
Then you go to Iowa and say, "Ethanol will
save us from the Saudis." Then you go to Oklahoma and say, "Blacks just
don't want to work." Then you go to Montana and say, "Fuck those
wolves and bears."
If we went on total votes, candidates could concentrate
on the big cities, where the people with brains tend to live and let THEM pick a president.
Hell coastal big cities should count double.
But no, we want the "Obama is an Arab"
people to decide,
which is why I say nobody is stupider than an American voter.
"A few days ago, I wrote "If Elected, Obama
will be My President." You would have thought I killed Santa Claus judging by the reaction
to that piece..The point is very simple - too simple for some who seek to complicate matters by

Damn, wish I'd said that.
I like that part about the peasants and the comet.
Excerpt: McCain may long for the days when Obama got the
lion's share of the media attention:
His coverage has been overwhelmingly negative
since the conventions ended, a study found.
The Project for Excellence in Journalism's report
illustrates how the media echo chamber can
send things spiraling out of control for a candidate.
It's likely to give ammunition to people who
say the press has been biased against McCain,
but the organization said its findings on this were inconclusive.
Or, maybe Obama has been positive while McCain has been nothing but
Not only that, but he picked Mooselini to foam at the mouth on hearing

Funny you should phrase it that way. I've
always been called
a "bad" liberal for my position on the 2nd Amendment.
Liberals want to debate how things should be.
I'd prefer not to live in a nation
with 200M guns.
Since the facts are staring me in the face,
I'm going to reject liberal wishful thinking
and protect myself.
I agree with them - it'd be great if the bad
guys didn't have guns,
buy since they do...
This may be one of those rare moments where I
am emailing you to actually agree with you.
ha ha Welcome to the right side :)
The 2nd ammendment was designed to protect us
from our OWN GOVERNMENT!
The "well regulated militia" is not the army.
It is you.
YOU are necessary to the the security of a free
The founding fathers were a well regulated militia.
The Government was the British Crown.
They were wise enough to realize the we MIGHT
just need to rebel again.
I personally think it is my 2nd ammendment right
to keep an
Apache Helicopter in my backyard if I damn well
Well, that makes you a gun nut.
Years and years before Blackwater, I said, "What
if Bill Gates or Ross Perot decide they want to recruit, train, equip and finance
an army - I'm not cool with that."
But now Bush has his private army and we
gotta wonder where their allegiance lies.
I hope I'm wrong. I hope these bastards
haven't reached that level of corruption yet,
but if they have, I expect I may no longer be
that odd-ball, pro-gun liberal in the room.
Keep swingin', man.

Dave, it's you and me, dude.
but we're gonna need more guns and more people
Come on, Bart - this disingenuous outrage is the
height of hypocrisy and I'm surprised to see you playing along.
If you start out that way, you really need to
be sure you can back it up.
There's no reason to begin a conversation with
that accusatory tone.
Read Campbell Brown's commentary over at The Huffington
Post about the double standard for women in
high-profile positions. Women politicians
(remember Hillary?) are scrutinized ruthlessly about their hair,
their make-up, their thighs, their jewelry and,
of course, their clothing. I'm fairly certain that Barack Obama
has spruced up his wardrobe a bit over the past
20 months to maximize his appeal; however, no one is asking
from where his well-tailored suits were purchased,
how much they cost or who paid for them.
Nobody's asking Obama that because he didn't spend
$125,000 on clothes in two stores.
Let's be honest - these campaigns are essentially
job interviews and we know the sartorial excesses to which
we all go when preparing for one. Did anyone
honestly think her handlers would not put the shiniest bow on
their already-attractive package before shoving
her into the spotlight? It's just unfortunate for Palin that they
spent so much effort adorning the package and
little apparent time on the contents.
Someone said Michelle wore a $180 dress on The
You say there's a double standard here, I say
your position is not well-thought out.
Be appalled by the fact that such an ill-prepared,
uninformed lightweight was hastily put on a major party's
presidential ticket (because of her looks, in
large part); but don't buy into the faux controversy.
It's undignified and, if the poll numbers hold,
an unnecessary piling-on.
Kay, you're wrong.
I'm not talking about Palin's fat ass or her attrocious laugh or the
terrible way she walks.
I'm talking about "Little Miss Wal-Mart" spending $2500 a day on clothes
at Neimann Marcus.
I'm talking about the handjob charade that's being pulled on the dumbass,
How is this any different from Monkeyboy pretending to be a cowboy by
buying a ranch
and making reporters do their standup with a barn and a bale of hay
as their backdrop?
Next time my "disingenousness" surprises you, next time my writing seems
you might want to make sure you're standing on solid ground.
Excerpt: In this live-and-let-live town, (Sad
that all of America isn't that way) where
medical marijuana clubs
do business next to grocery stores and an annual
fair celebrates sadomasochism, prostitutes could
soon walk the streets without fear of arrest.
San Francisco would become the first major U.S.
city to decriminalize prostitution if voters approve
Proposition K - a measure that forbids local authorities
from arresting anyone for selling sex.
The ballot question technically would not legalize
prostitution since state law still prohibits it,
but the measure would eliminate the power of
local Church ladies to go after prostitutes.
They always say they want "less government"
then they pass laws that encroach on the Freedom in your Pants.
Bart, I too join with those of your supporters
who pledge $5 per state that Obama
wins on November 4. I will send the money

You have been right about what's happening politically
since I beganreading you 3 years ago.
If only the Democrats would hire you as an adviser!!!
I hope Obama (and each of us) has a great night on Nov 4th
One benefit, for a while, of the fall of the Wall
was the extensive amount of previously secret information
that was released concerning Russian actions.
At the time of Kennedy's showdown with the "Reds" there
were three Russian subs off our coast.
Since there was no reliable means of underwater communication
with Moscow orders were given anticipating which
way the standoff might go.
These three sub commanders were told, if they
all agreed, they had the authority to fire.
ONE commander disagreeing was enough to cancel
that. One commander did not agree.
It was that close and it was a sane Russian sub
commander who prevented the melting of Miami (and worse).
I like to picture him as Sean Connery the independent
minded Red October commander from Vilnius,
which is an area of proud,independent folk who
sought to minimize Moscow's influence in their lives.
Excerpt: Spending, the conduct of the war in Iraq for

modernize the [financial] regulatory agencies, failure to address
the issue of climate change seriously," Mr. McCain

"They put a trillion-dollar debt on future generations
of Americans, then allowed the liberals to expand it

Why should the taxpayers pay for my prescription drugs?"
