mediablitz: Key Note? Like it's two words?

Subby is THAT stupid? Well, he bought this bullshiat article, so I'm being redundant...


well, subtard is a republican - they tend to want to go back to the gilded age of the 1890s, when amongst other things, words like keynote and gentlemen were spelled either as two words or hyphenated, as in: "gentle-men, may i present the key-note speaker for this year's annual acetate collar and spats convention, thaddeus mcdouchenozzle, esq.!"

what_now: "Sometimes I kick homeless people to death to get an erection"- Mitt Romney, Sunday, July 22nd, 2012 Meet The Press


That was taken out of context.

Full quote:

"I haven't done it very often but sometimes I kick homeless people to death to get an erection. I suppose some of them might have survived. Hard to say."

The nice thing about misquoting Romney is that if you wait long enough, he'll eventually say what you said he said.

MrBallou: So One = Several in derpmitter math?


Thomas Edison, after inventing the telephone, was asked what he thought it would mean for society to have at their fingertips such easy means of communicating over long distance. He replied, after a short period of contemplation, that he was both excited and unnerved at what his invention might mean. Why excited? asked the interviewer, to which Mr. Edison replied, "We are at the threshold of an age when all information -- be it for good or ill, be it truth or lie -- is at our fingertips." Why, then, unnerved? "Because I am afraid that the lies will have a way of overtaking the truth," he replied.

Interestingly, some decades later, noted Nazi propagandist Joseph "Frank" Goebbels loosely paraphrased Edison when he said, "The real truth is that 100 truths will always lose the race to a single lie."

All of which is to say that, where lies are concerned, the difference between one and one million is of no consequence, in the end. Roosevelt said that, by the way.

Castro claimed that Romney said "...start a business,"and "...borrow money if you have to from your parents,"

What Romney actually said was "...borrow money if you have to from your parents. Start a business."

It's totally the opposite of Castro's claim! Why can't the libs stop lying about Romney?

There's way too much wordiness in this thread.

Romney said it.

Castro repeated it.

The point was that Romney doesn't understand that some people just don't have that option because their families don't have a spare $20,000 lying around.

Castro was right.

Newsbusters is pancakes-on-head wee-todd-ed.

Cletus C.: Hypocritical doesn't even begin to capture this predictable and tiring farklib shadow boxing. What Romney said was clearly twisted out of context. What Romney said was actually the nice story of a successful businessman.



Castro PRETENDED that Romney said "...start a business," and "...borrow money if you have to from your parents"

Obviously a lie.

What Romney ACTUALLY said was "...borrow money if you have to from your parents. Start a business."


Totally different.

By "several" they mean "one."

Fact: both sides are equally bad*.

Fact: Last week, the GOP told some really blatant lies.

Ergo, there must be some equally blatant lies that the Dems told last night. If you can't find them, then it must be because the liberal media is suppressing them.

Three Crooked Squirrels: When Castro said that line in his speech last night, I was surprised. I thought to myself "Huh. How did I miss that? If Romney said that, I'm sure I would have not only heard about it, but would have also been in a Fark thread about it." Then I listened to the rest of the speech and went to bed.

This morning, I tune into this Fark headline. My first thought "Huh. I guess I didn't miss it. Castro made it up and Newsbusters caught him."

Then I read the Newsbusters article and realized, nope, not made up at all. Not a lie, not taken out of context. I guess I did just miss this the first time around.

Yeah, I watched the video and I don't really see a problem with what Castro said.
Romney: "...borrow money, if you have to, from your parents." then he went on to tell about someone who borrowed $20,000 from his father.
Castro quoting Romney: the exact goddamn thing. And it wasn't taken out if context like the whole " you didn't build that" bs.
