Lighten up, Mary.

That is kind of silly.

Quasar: That is kind of silly.


The North Korea thing makes me want to believe he's joking. But Sullivan is fickle and pissy most times, so who knows?

I barely want to wish my own mother a happy Mother's Day.

I wish my SIL's happy mother's day because they are mothers. I don't buy them a gift or card, but i do offer the sentement. What does it hurt, subtard?

I think he's grumbled about the weird, silly way Obama's campaign is trying to coolify the fundraising emails ("Sup, Brobama here" or "Hanging out on the Lawn with my buds Veepy and Hillcat") more because it seems unnecessary and immature than hip and effective.

Yeah, I misread what exactly you were labeling silly.

I guess I can see that. Maybe it works a younger demographic. And Sullivan's no dummy, despite my disagreements with him. It just seems a little petty to be nitpicking As silly as the silliness he's trying to sillify. It just adds to the noise.

works on a younger demo, that is

I'm a fan of Sullivan but he's off in his own political world most of the time. Nitpicking and silliness are to be expected.

Lumpmoose: I'm a fan of Sullivan but he's off in his own political world most of the time. Nitpicking and silliness are to be expected.


Yeah. There was a great panel on Maher including him and Glenn Greenwald discussing al-Awlaki a few weeks back. Sullivan's argument was "bad person, traitor, just the one time, etc." Greenwald basically said "you really trust this power in the hands of a Gingrich or Palin?" It was a great discussion.

Wow. That's really a quote. Good lord.

Anyway, changing the subject:

I think it's safe to assume that an evening at George Clooney's house is something you're not going to want to miss.

Honestly, that is something I would very much like to miss. I can't think of many other places I would less want to be.

Unless Clooney isn't actually home at the time. That'd be pretty cool. I could leave him a steaming present in his sock drawer.

No upper decker? Geez, you're losing your edge.
 
2012-05-09 02:40:07 PM
Really? The title reading "Me again" gets him upset. I know a lot of people that do that kind of stuff for emails it's a way of making it informal. Someone put the wrong little girl panties on this morning.
 
2012-05-09 02:47:53 PM

Diogenes: No upper decker? Geez, you're losing your edge.


Unless I am mistaken, an upper decker just involves stretching cellophane between the seat and bowl to, uh, "soil" the next person to use the toilet.

That just seems a little too technical when you are breaking into a celebrity's home using an empty fifth of Bush Mills as your burglary tool.
 
2012-05-09 02:53:43 PM
I'd like to join Barack Obama in requesting a blowjob this weekend.



well, not from Michelle, that would be scary

No, an upper decker as I understand it is dumping in the tank instead of the bowl. Very uncomplicated. More so if you have good balance.

Who has good balance after a fifth of Bush Mills?

Remember when soldiers were handed prayer cards, asking them to pray for George Bush? Remember the outrage from conservatives, that a guy being shot at in a war overseas ought to pray for the President?

But I do know Romney wants to wish my mother a Happy Mother's day. In the cemetery with a baptism at the end.

Hey, everyone has different tastes. I'm not busting your balls because you think she's hot, maybe you should do the same with people who think she isn't.

I named my chicken Michelle.

not really, no. Just like I won't remember this. Or where I left my keys.

I'll wish her a happy mother's day if the First Lady shows her tits.

I honestly don't remember any prayer cards like that. And I deployed a total of three times while Bush was President (the third time, Obama was inaugurated halfway through my tour). Do you have any links that shows such a prayer card, or to which service members were issued such a card?

/Not a Bush supporter

she's attractive as far as first ladies go but as far as ladies in general go she's just ok?

I got the same e-mails and didn't think anything about them. If dude hates them so much maybe he should click on the link to stop them, and why did he get put on their mailing list in the first place?
