Huggermugger: Cletus C.: Serious Black: sprawl15: Serious Black: I have no idea what Obama will focus on tonight.

What we haven't seen yet is a serious mention of foreign policy.

True, but I think a lot of that is because everyone knows Obama has the GOP over a barrel on foreign policy this year. Maybe the only thing dealing with foreign countries he could focus on is free trade and how we should use trade to make everyone's lives better rather than just a few lucky duckies.

So, we trade out food stamps for what, rugs?

Gosh, you're classy! I wanna have your rape babies.


We interrupt our regularly scheduled bloviations to return to the War on Women.

Hopefully it's along the lines of "let's do everything we can to keep our money and our troops to ourselves."

Get your terminology right, pal. The War on Women is being waged by the GOP - those people elected to national posts, in Congress, and their supporters/surrogates/spinmeisters - on America. A single asshole on fark saying something misogynistic is not part of it.

If I say something like "Michelle Malkin's only purpose is as life support for boobs and vag" (I'm leaving out some context there), that's no more a part of The GOP's War on Women than (hypothetically) you saying "Hillary Coontlin should stick to evading sniper fire in helicopters, and keep her pantsuits out of government". They might both be equally offensive, but as neither of us is in any position to actually wage war, it's shouting at clouds on a sunny day.

I don't know whether you honestly don't grok that, or whether you're trying your hand at the "Nuh-UH, it's the Dems who hate women! Look, the unemployment rate for women 18-30 is .1% higher than the combined rate for the 18-30 cohort! YOU'RE the misogynists, misogynists!" game, but knock it off already.

feanorn: his speech wasn't really about why O, but why not the Rs, and why the Ds, who have O at the helm, and why he should stay there since he's there.


We get it. You didn't hear or read the speech, and you don't intend to.

Wow. All I got from that is you never get laid.

Cletus C.: Wow. All I got from that is you never get laid.


Well, the proto-gf lives 90 minutes from me, and is currently working on a trial. Last weekend, though, was pretty epic - apparently, The Dreamscapes Project is a panty-dropper.

// was anyone else at that show - 930 Club last Saturday night?
// not that you'll believe me, so I'll add that her particle physics research keeps her busy on most weekends

Just replace a few words and it all makes sense. Anyway, see you at the 930.

Dafatone: hubiestubert: His speech really dispelled the notion that Clinton was going to Eastwood his appearance. They didn't need to release the Biden, they just loosed Clinton doing what he does best: connect with folks and show what a Centerist approach looks like, in living color.

WTF was that all about, anyway?

Eastwood goes senile on stage, and the best comeback the right wing had was, "Well, maybe Clinton will do that too!"

No he won't. He's Bill farking Clinton.


I dislike him as a person, since he's the sort of farkwit who cheats on his wife, but on the other hand, yeah, he seems pretty damn awesome.

mrshowrules: Serious Black: "I would recommend to my friend Paul [Begala] here, tonight when everybody leaves, lock the doors. You don't have to come back tomorrow. This convention is done. This will be the moment that probably re-elected Barack Obama. Bill Clinton saved the Democratic Party once, it was going to far left, he came in, the new democrats took it to the center. He did it again tonight." - Alex Castellanos, GOP strategist

I hope he has found a nice place to camp under the GOP bus he will be thrown under shortly.


I know. I have some teabaggers in my FB friends list. They're throwing everyone who isn't ultra partisan right (ie wingnut to eleventy!!1!1!) as RINOs. Despicable.

To be fair, the strategy of purity is working. It's driving good folks from the party, and looking for a useful and sane alternative to the Democrats, and in the meantime, voting against the Crazy Train until said party can be congealed properly. They wanted a revolution, and they're getting one. It's quiet maybe, but Romney is going to see a lot of folks break ranks with the party, because he offers nothing as an alternative, save a lot of the same pablum that has been tried, and failed.

We need a Bull Moose Party again.

Really. How could you capture the complete polar opposite of the speech with any more accuracy?
