A potted plant would do less harm so there's that.

These are crucial times people, Mitt is the only choice:

I have clients who used to have 150 employees that are now near homeless.
I have others that are in jail now due to the economy and they can't meet child support payments since they lost their jobs.
Everywhere I go near me - there are more vacancies, foreclosures, despair, jobless, homeless popping up etc.
There is no possibility of any improvement unless we first get obama out of office. Does Romney make me wince? YES!!!! Yes!!!!
But can i endure 4 more years of economic depression with my life, and my familys' life, as well as my friends' lives, clients' lives, etc all on hold or collapsing?
Think about that! Is the hatred for one person we did not vote for in the primary that strong that we will give the WH and country another term to? Seriously?
Finally - for all those biatching about Romney - maybe Y'all should have united behind Santorum, Newt, or Bachmann and not split your votes.
The idea of 4 more years of Obama and this economic destruction is simply unthinkable - regardless of how much mittens revolts me.

I saw a dead plant
It reminded me of Mitt
Away, to the blog!

Egads, man. An opinion columnist showing bias and revealing his personal preference?

This is an outrage...

Alert someone or something.

Our last Republican president was a dead potted plant and look how well that turned out.

At least Chia pets have personality.

"Ladies and Gentlemens, the next President, errrrr Vice President of the United States, Dead Plant!"

A dead potted plant wouldn't be ashamed in providing me health benefits.

Since when are columnists objective and unbiased (or supposed to be)? I thought columnists wrote opinion pieces. Besides, TFA seemed a bit heavy with either sarcasm, parody or both. If subby isn't trolling, then I think they are stupid.

"I'm probably smarter than this plant here. I might not be smarter than this thing here cause it has batteries."

Romney has batteries. Would you milk him be smarter than him?

I don't think anybody expects columnists to be objective and unbiased. It would make for a pretty boring article. On the other hand, his bias didn't exactly make the article interesting.

Now THIS,

NateGrey: I have clients who used to have 150 employees that are now near homeless.
I have others that are in jail now due to the economy and they can't meet child support payments since they lost their jobs.
Everywhere I go near me - there are more vacancies, foreclosures, despair, jobless, homeless popping up etc.


Is disingenuous at best. The courts aren't just going to take you to jail if you became unemployed and for that reason aren't paying anything. Either the person has assets and isn't working with the courts or, more likely, it's just not true.

Actually, you know what? The whole thing. Aren't Republicans supposed to be the party of personal responsibility? Why is it that all the Republicans I know are blaming the President (and specifically THIS president and not the one under whom the recession started) for their lack of bootstrappiness?
 
2012-08-15 09:49:52 AM
Dead potted plants are people too!
 
2012-08-15 09:52:32 AM
Opinion blogs: objective and unbiased on the internet since never.
 
2012-08-15 09:54:28 AM
Will we get to see the potted plant's tax returns?
 
2012-08-15 10:03:59 AM
It'd never survive a primary challenge from Inanimate Carbon Rod.

Even with a puppet candidate, the forces of evil still have a chance to win.
Evil is very good at organizing and they have all the money and most of the political power.

All they need is to keep something stupid from happening and who is better than a puppet?

Fartmitter doesn't know how media babby is formed.

does the dead potted plant come with the Lowes plant lives or money back garrentee? If so it would be my choice
 
2012-08-15 10:31:28 AM
The potted plant would say just as much about its stance without having to backtrack and change its opinion. In fact on important issues like clean water and soil it would have Mitt hands down.

Maybe instead of bashing Subby, you should be commending him for successfully getting greenlit. I'm sure that this is considered a major accomplishment for mental midgets everywhere... We can work on explaining columnists to them NEXT week. This week, we should just let them rejoice that this guy managed to bang out an (apparently) Fark-worthy headline with his forehead while wearing a helmet, and apparently not pausing to lick the windows even once.

On the upcoming presidential election:

"I thought last time was as bad as it got. Nope. Once again, shiattier vs. shiattier. If this is evolution in terms of leadership, I think in 12 years we're going to be voting for plants."

Lewis Black, June 2004.

Looks like he's right on schedule.

I figured subby was just banging their head on the window and licking the keys (because cheeto dust), but in my opinion, your version works too.

Dead Potted Plant/Inanimate Carbon Rod 2016?

A potted plant that can sign GOP-approved bills would be Grover Norquist's ideal President. He said basically that.
 
2012-08-15 11:21:47 AM
Heh. A couple of the most popular discussions in the comments there are about whether basil or rosemary would be the better choice for the plant.

Although I'd be inclined to try mint, myself; it's quite durable and shade-tolerant.

I'm hoping for the bitter irony of Arugula myself...

and what say you, angry liberal douche?

First, you'd need to be able to see a difference between them.

The potted plant is more photogenic.

Got some in the front yard. That shiat is hardy as hell, and has never once shipped a job overseas.

I prefer to compare him to an inanimate carbon rod!

Arugula doesn't do well in shade, in my experience. (I've tried; lighting on most of my balcony is pretty wretched, but still good enough for some hardier varieties of tomato.)
