mrshowrules: mrshowrules: Do we still have to make buttsecks jokes when discussing homosexuality? I know this is Fark but really subby? I'm straight and buttsecks makes my whole month. Short of touching tips in erotica simulated sword play, there isn't much going on with gay sex that straights don't have an analog to.

Obviously the wrong thread but oddly appropriate.


You know, Just the other day I ran across a reference to a hetero version of that involving a strap-on and simulated light-saber noises.

No I won't tell you where, dirty old uncle Jerk can't give you everything for free...

yert: WTF is a Zomber?


A submissive bisexual republican with a HUUUUGE broner for Newt Gingrich who is a member of the tea party, believes McCain sank the Palin campaign in 2008, and thinks Dubya was a great president held back by a filthy democrat congress.

Poe's law, to some it's a law, to others it's a lifestyle.

jackthezomber: quiet please, the men are talking.


Look at you go all misogyny. . But back to this nonsense for a moment, please.

jackthezomber: it's a joke. employer - employee. Zomber - Zombie. get it?


Wouldn't it be "Zombee" instead of "Zombie" if we were to follow the given example? Wtf is a Zombee? And that still doesn't answer what a Zomber is. Maybe we need a definition of the verb Zomb to understand your cleverness.

There's also the chance you were going for a Joe the Plumber angle, but that makes no sense when given your above statement. Is there a Plumbee or Plumbie definition to be had anywhere?

No, I admit. I've tried several times and I can't find any funny in this at all. Please map it out for us.

"Beat Barack Obama"

This is their one and only chant for this political season.

Nothing about "Elect me because I have better ideas." Nope.

It's not, "Elect me because I'm better than Obama in some way, shape or form." Nope.

It's just, "Elect me and toss Obama to the curb."

But no, that chant doesn't reek of butthurt or anything.

I feel bad for you that you feel the need to analyze humor this deeply. It's a pun -- a simple play on words, my dear. A zomber in this case would be a neologism i coined to refer to a necromancer. If that's too complex for you, i suggest stepping away from the computer and making a sandwich.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: If Newt manages to say even half of that in tonight's debate and Romney hesitates for even a split second in his response, this primary will be over by next Monday, and no amount of maneuvering by the party brass will save Mittens.


I still don't think Gingrich beats Romney for the nomination, but unlike even 24 hours ago I'm beginning to acknowledge there's a remote possibility of it. I just can't believe it but yeah, if he crucifies Romney in tonight's debate it's going to at least be a very long, hostile primary for the nomination before Romney clinches it. The only thing that might save Romney in Florida if that goes down tonight is the pretty heavy amount of early voting that took place which likely benefited Romney pretty heavily.

All the scenarios I can think of involve the Obama campaign messing up brutally. Based on 08, that's a tightly run ship.

That said, a friend of mine's older brother, who was registered as a Republican because he wanted to vote in the 96 primary and being registered as Democrat would have been useless, voted for Bush in the primary in 2000 over McCain because, he said, there was no way in hell Bush could win the general. Womp womp.

But if you're Mitt Romney, a Republican primary debate isn't when you don't want to be explaining why you were voting in the Democratic primary in 1992

Wasn't Ronald Reagan a Democrat before he turned Republican? Mitt can just use the Reagan defense.

It's because your friend knows about Newt. There are many out there that apparently don't know much of anything about the man other than what they've seen in the debates.

Flaming Yawn: "Newt, no one but you seems to think the American people might be "stupid".


I'd give odds this is where Mittens will go. First time "Newt" says stupid, its probably done for him in the debate. Its way too easy to jujitsu that. You can't call your opponent stupid and you can't appear to be calling the audience "stupid."

Maybe it is absurd. It's just a username. what's with your username? Do you have some soup for someone named Bonnie? Does this have anything to do with Newt, or did you tire of discussing the topic because your side was losing so badly?

I have a sneaking suspicion most of them were younger than 10 during the 1998 meltdown, and are perhaps voting in their first or second national election.

I guess that, to a certain sect of the uninitiated, he sounds good.

Anyhow, they're about to watch Newt overreach in classic Gingrichian style. Romney gets the opportunity to take the high ground, wins Florida, and embarrasses Newt on Super Tuesday (remember that the Texas primary got moved up-this was Not Romney's big chance).

When in reality anytime some asks Newt a question he doesn't like. He'll whine and biatch that it's unfair and the right-wingers will eat it up.

Sounding

good in debates is how you stay neck and neck with an opponent who has outspent you 50 to 1 since the start of the campaign.

Seriously, how freaking flawed is Romney when he can't take a firm lead with all of his resources behind him? I don't think he's really that more electable than Gingrich. I think they're both equally unelectable, it's just that Romney's unelectability doesn't show up in the media narratives and on punditry paper, it always shows up on voting day with the voters. He's like the 6'4" 250 lbs. linebacker who looks great in the uniform and runs like the wind, but can't shed a block or make a tackle to save his life.

I for one don't think our debates should even have large audiences. This isn't "Whose Line is It Anyway?", it's a debate to pick who they want to be their candidate for POTUS.

Play to the electorate once you're the nominee. When you're debating serious topics, I want you paying attention to each other and the subject at hand, not trying to peg out the Applause-O-Meter.

I think it's great. Who says political debate is supposed to be pristine and bloodless? Ever seen footage of British Parliament? (or any other country's parliament?)

In the modern era of SuperPACs spending hundreds of millions on campaign commercial litzkreigs , and where every candidate is coached by debate consultants and just mindlessly regurgitate canned, market tested lines ..... the more organic, off the cuff and spontaneous the environment the better. Being President is a mentally and psychologically difficult job, and it's not performed in a vacuum. Let's see who has the temper. Let's see who reacts to being heckled. Anything to get these candidates to show even a glimpse of their real personalities and away from their canned responses.
