Voldemort? I always thought that Lautenberg's nickname was Dracula.

mojo_the_helper_monkey: making fun of cancer survivors

I'm not sure if he's a cancer survivor just yet.

Is anyone really a cancer survivor? I guess if you went into remission 10 years ago and then got hit by a bus.

All signs point to the Highlander. Cured his cancer by jumping off a cliff and devouring the souls of dead senators.

pylon23: Nobody will ever top Strom Thurmond in the zombie department...

Not a cool story bro:

When he was still in office/"alive", a friend of mine took a trip to DC and had his picture taken with Senator Thurmond. After looking at the pictures, his dad said it best:

"You look like you're standing next to a corpse."

Didn't you read the earlier article? Evil fuels our super powers.

When it said "Cancer gone," for a second, I thought the article was taking a shot at Byrd...
Sirsky: Am I the only one who read that in Professor Farnsworth's voice?

I did a little bit, but he said "Good news everyone," not "Great news everyone," so if Misquotemitter was going for it, he failed. But that doesn't bug me near as much as when people misquote the "I like turtles" kid and say "I saw a turtle." For some reason I get so irritated by that. Probably because so many people do it.

We really need to quit letting people who grew up in an era when radios and flushing toilets were luxury items govern us.

And Daniel Inouye is third in line for the Presidency, after Biden and Pelosi.

WTB term limits for all sitting elected officials regardless of house. I honestly believe that term limits on the senate and house specifically would solve a great number of our current governmental problems.
 
2010-06-28 04:59:20 PM  
I can get behind any elected offical with a platform centered on killing Harry Potter.

I'll bet at his age and health he sounds like he's speaking parsel tongue.

Yes, a thousand times yes. The mindsets of 50 years ago, while valuable for their memories and lessons, are not fit to govern the world of now.

I wish the founding fathers had included "6 terms in the House, 2 terms in the Senate, maximum" in the Constitution.

I don't necessarily agree - then you would create congressman looking for a private sector sinecure for their entire term in office. They would still be swayed by the people who could give them that.

Good point, Lampmonster.

Say, if you are a grasping, power hungry politician, and you want to kill the person who gave you your big break and tons of help along the way, to what political party are you most closely aligned?

Discuss.

Instead of a term limit lets just set an age limit. Something like no person over the age of 72 can run for congress.
 
2010-06-28 05:32:30 PM  
Some of these guys were senior citizens when I was born, for christ's sake. We really need to start setting some sort of age restriction or term limits on them.

Kurland: Instead of a term limit lets just set an age limit. Something like no person over the age of 72 can run for congress.

Sure, why not? We can also set standards for intelligence, sexual preference, skin color and sense of humor. Sounds like a fantastic idea.

Worse, I believe he was also instrumental in the creation of the National Maximum Speed Law, otherwise known as the hated 55MPH speed limit.

How about just a mandatory retirement age. I know some states have one for judges (Minnesota has one for Supreme Court judges).

Yeah, when your grandfather craps his pants while sleeping in the middle of diner, it's sad but kind of funny. When your Senator does it, it's a tragedy.
 
2010-06-28 06:07:46 PM  
Lautenberg sounds like an idiot every time he puts more than 3 words together to make a sentence. I'm pretty sure that's not age-related though. I remember breathing a sigh of relief when he retired, but it didn't last long.

This.

Since we won't be able to pass something like that (unless there are initiatives at the federal level?)

We just need to make sure that anyone serving over 2 terms isn't voted for in the next round.

I can never hear "good news, everyone!" anymore without hearing his voice. And immediately checking for slime of some sort.
