If you are full of it, sooner or later, it will come out.

But still a plane full of smoke is a bit more than what I expected.

SilentStrider: Dakai: Good Lord, had she crashed, you know MItten's would have gotten the sympathy vote

maybe. Although Obama's a good enough politician, that he might have a contingency plan for just how to act if something like that were to happen.


Wow. It's hard to imagine just what.

Seriously, has that ever happened in anyone's election race? Not that the candidate died, that happens a lot, but that their spouse or something died? What can the opponent possibly say or do that wouldn't sound just awful?

FuturePastNow: The type of plane cited in the article. I wonder which big Republican donor owns this one.


So basically a private CRJ? Would have thought his sugar-daddies would have sprung for better.

/Glad no one was hurt
//Maybe Mitt knew this was coming, and that's why he pointed out clouds?
///Thought it would be remembered as poignant.

Coco LaFemme: Altitude5280: Holy crap. Look at the Freeperville comments. :- O

I'll click on no such link. Can you give other Farkers like me a taste of what lies behind the green door?

Can the likelihood of involvement by Hussein's goons be eliminated?

I would love to have tail number to see who serviced it last.

That cake is disgusting. There were far more than two windows on each floor of the building.
 
2012-09-21 08:07:37 PM  
Yes, this would be an amusing allegory for Mitt's campaign, except that I'm kind of uptight and take stuff like smoke-filled planes seriously.

I'm very glad no one was hurt.

And let's face it, they can afford to just run out and pick up another one.

HeartBurnKid: russlar: I hope she's ok

fluffy2097: /Sure am glad nobody was hurt

jcsgDin: //I'm glad everyone is okay.

Some 'Splainin' To Do: I'm glad she's safe. I've been in a malfunctioning plane before and I can fully appreciate how terrifying that must have been.

whither_apophis: I will not stoop to snark despite my opposition to her husband's politics. Hope all is well.

Decados: As much as I want to see Mitt's campaign collapse in a smouldering wreckage, I hope that his wife and everyone on that plane is ok.

Gosling: I want her husband to lose, but I don't want that to happen to anyone.

Corvus: I hope she is ok

Somacandra: Glad to hear that everyone is OK and that there are no injuries.

netweavr: I'm glad everything turned out alright. No family should have to go through tragedies.

SilentStrider: Glad to hear everyone's ok.

pedobearapproved: Treygreen13: Well this has been a super classy thread so far.

Seriously. It's not even trolls it's just people who seriously wish bad things to happen to people they don't agree with. This doesn't even qualify as pathetic.

Yeah, what horrible monsters.


Thought it should be posted again, since the freeperites were busy kissing arse and talking shiate. Again.

mrlewish: Attempted bump off by Romney's own camp to garner sympathy vote?


The fact that my first thought at reading this comment was not "Aw hell no!" speaks volumes about the public image this campaign has created of itself.

/As does the fact that they failed

Serious you're an idiot if you want something bad to happen to her. She is a blithering idiot but so what? It wouldn't even help politically if something did happen. In fact if something was bad to happen to her it would make Romney more likely to be president. I am not saying you should want something bad to happen to someone for political reason but at least that would make some sort of sense.

Don't be stupid and wish ill will on someone like this.

I don't think anyone here hopes Ann Romney dies, whether before the election, or any time after the election. She's an icy, Stepford Wife-like coont to be sure, but that in and of itself is not a valid reason to wish her dead.

/Oh crap, I forgot to say something political!


Eh, I came here to say essentially this. Glad she's okay.

/Sure, she's whiny, but she's still a human being, and by all accounts at least tries to be nice, which is worth some brownie points.
 
2012-09-21 08:45:55 PM  
I'm very happy she's ok. Seriously. She seems a smart, driven and impressive woman.

That law needs abolishing.

Enough with the disenfranchisement.

Obama would make a touching and classy statement of sympathy that reverberated through the hearts of (most) Americans.
Mitt would try to blame Obama for it, and screw up, leaving the electorate with the impression that he's an even bigger jerk then they already thought he was.
And 40% of Americans would still vote for Mitt

/Based on recent performance

That plane was filled with Republicans. The repressed homosexual urges on it could set alight every building within a 20 mile radius. They should be so lucky to only deal with smoke.
 
2012-09-21 09:17:39 PM  
Ultimately however we can get less stupid, crazy, mormon republicans out of the world I'm down with it.

Plane crash, terrorist attack, mass suicide, all are good.

I couldnt help myself... I had to post a comment in a thread where they were discussing how current polls are skewing results because they are polling more democrats than republicans, and that you need to poll an equal amount of republicans and democrats to get an accurate unbiased poll. So I explained how polls work in the realm of science, in a friendly hey im a republican too kind of way.

The post never showed up, they screened and deleted it before it ever hit the page.

Im a little scared to think about how many people in our country are like this.

What has been seen and such...

Your reaction is normal, but it's when people react that way to FR but then turn and gush over Think Progress, or Mother Jones, or Talking Points Memo, or a half dozen other sites I could name while at the same time talking about those "freaks" at FR, I have to laugh.

The number of people who deserve to die in a plane crash number less than a dozen.
