Media giants were dying at a record rate. "Fairness," they'd bleat, but one Fox refused the fascists' PR. It prospered.

By her master's design, she was smug and mocking, and eschewed first principles. Another useful idiot for the cannons.

He tossed the constitution in the dustbin, setting up warrantless wire-taps, never thinking the other side might win.

Regular or Extra Crispy

While voters decide which party to blame, they miss the one real difference: the speed at which the country goes to hell.

This one works very well. Either side can use it quite effectively. It has great appeal to my bipolar sensibilities.

But of course we can't blame those in office. It's been said many times before that we get the government that we deserve.

Jim bought the Saul Alinsky lie that the monsters were no worse. Just because the heroes had infiltrators and some evil.

I agree that the above sums it up best so far.
And wow, a guy goes and sleeps for eight hours and wakes up to an almost full page of Divisive Political Twabbling (or DPT for short :) )... and he groans while reading them... :(


Timbuk3 knew what was going on:

"Presidential elections, are planned distractions, to divert attention from the actions from behind the scenes..."

And TheJebi knows nothing, but will pretend like he knows something:

Anybody who has a shot at being President is so bought and paid for that a little D or R signifies zilch.

So, Ron Paul maybe?

:D I met him over the summer! He gave me an autographed Constitution and maybe the greatest hug I've ever recieved. Twas magical.

Also, I feel like I haven't creeped on Norm enough this week.

The tatto artist blinked and asked, "The name Norm? Sure you want it done in tentacles?" Nodding, she dropped her pants.

An Florida State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-10. The trooper asked, "Got any ID?"
