That has to be a troll. It has to be. It's just too ridiculous. I followed the teabaggers a lot and i've never seen them call him gay. Lots of things, but not gay.


Oh, there's a whole conspiracy about how he's systematically killing off all his past gay lovers in order to cover his tracks.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: mahuika: Debate drinking game!

You're welcome.

Though these are nowhere near as fun as the drinking games for the Republican primary debates. :(

I'm sorry. If I followed anywhere NEAR those rules I would be comatose. And since I'm living in my truck, that is a very bad idea.

Maybe I'll use fruit juice. And park near Fedex Office so a bathroom is handy.


Oh hey well that sucks. Waste some more of your time then. It's pretty much the least I can do.

Go check out any random Obama topic in Freeperville. It's apparently a pretty pervasive thought over there.

It's simple. If you support gay rights, you must be gay. End of discussion.

bulldg4life: Michelle Obama has...like....a lot of teeth. When she is talking, the only thing I see is the copious amount of teeth in her mouth.


In Republican world, that means she is less than a woman because the trinity of a woman's responsibilities is beer, sammich, blow job, not necessarily in that order.

rynthetyn: Will-Mun: Oh god, I just popped the C-Span pre-coverage and they showed a shot of the Obama/McCain debate. McCain brought up Joe the Plumber. I thought I scrubbed that man out of my memories.

Oh wow, I'd totally blocked that out. Incidentally, that reminds me of how Obama is just a better campaigner than pretty much anybody--I watched that debate at a campaign organized event in downtown Hanoi in '08. Like, there was actually somebody who worked for the campaign running the thing halfway around the world in a 3rd world country; busy making sure that everybody knew just how to get their absentee ballots back to the US. Best I can tell, the campaign organization is even better this go around, and that's the way you make sure you don't leave any potential votes uncast.


The one McCain thing I can't get out of my head is this pic FROM A LIVE PRIMARY DEBATE:



/yeah, and I was supposed to believe this guy never called his wife that word you never call a woman you can't outrun

There was a rumor that Obama had sex with some guy and then had him killed, so anything is possible

Since it looks like the American and National Leagues are both locked down at this point, I'm gonna be a citizen about tonight.

I really hope to hear something beyond "think of how good it used to be" and "think of how good it might soon be", though.

My eyes keep looking up to her arched eyebrows, like I keep expecting them to finally settle down.

silgryphon: I had a conversation with a coworker today who said he's not voting for Obama again because Obama hasn't created any jobs. He used the analogy of starting a business with a million dollars and four years later you still have a million dollars cause you didn't do anything with it.


And what does he define as "creating jobs"? This is something that's always bothered me when people bring up this talking point. Do they think jobs just come into being out of thin air? That if you take away "regulations" that jobs just appear?

The Braves game was this afternoon, the Yankees are running away with their game, and the PGA Tour pro-am show is kinda boring...I'VE GOT NOTHING RIGHT NOW!

Well, this lady standing there not saying anything is kinda creepy.
 
2012-10-03 08:34:11 PM  

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: In case it hasn't been mentioned yet, Obama truly hates Mitt Romney. It's that fact that lit a fire under him this campaign season. He has absolutely no respect for him as a human being and politician, since he's the living embodiment of a cynical weather vane. Should be an interesting night.


and mittens doesnt do well when confronted. he may not say it, but his body language and facial expressions are telling
and obama is a bit unflappable in debates. he may loathe him, but you wont be able to tell with the potential seething coming ffrom the other podium.

Legit, there was a story going around the Conservasphere a while back that painted Jeremiah Wright as a man who protected a collection of closeted homosexuals, so they could come together and have illicit sex without anyone finding out. Obama was apparently one of them.

Coco LaFemme: Will-Mun: Coco LaFemme: bemused outsider: Running out of time to read all the posts...

Need advice: Which channel to watch?
My options :
ABC - KOMO
CBC - KIRO
NBC - KING
FOX
PBS
CNN

Was planning on CNN, but not sure who will have the least annoying commentators.

/wrong side of the border

C-SPAN. Click me!

My only problem with C-SPAN, as I prefer their "put the camera down and shut up" style, the quality of the stream is kinda... lacking.

It looks like a turd, is what I'm saying. The white boarders and grainy video is throwing me off.

No, it's not the best-looking video out there, but I'd rather a lousy video feed over a great video feed complete with stupid pundits waxing poetic about every sound that comes out of the respective candidates' mouths.


Which is why I'll probably go with C-SPAN anyway.

On a side note, Survivor has a lot of hot women on it this season. It seems they changed how they casted in the ten years since I've watched an episode of Survivor.

Wait, what? When was this? I thought I had heard all the teabagging malarky. Was this just some freeper/FSTDT shiat? Or is this some Conti conspiracy?

downstairs: We have "official" threads for sporting events and TV shows all the time, so here's your Official U.S. House Health Care Reform Voting thread for Sunday (8573)


Best part of that was that Fark crashed for about a half hour exactly when the voting was taking place.

I thought of this earlier. Possible but unlikely IMHO because it would come off as wimpy.

/If he does say it, the proper response from Obama would be "and our condolences on your relationship with Ann and the sister-wives."

Freeper suggestions for the debate:

Add 'Boy' at the start of every answer. Like...

"Boy, Obama wants details but has none of his own." Etc Etc. After calling Obumbles boy a few times, he will be reduced to a spitting, stuttering, raving loon, unable to answer anything.


Cunning plan there.

I don't know. But I did shoot back with. Every jobs bill that has been created has been shot down by the repulicans because of a tax increase.


Since I am on the politics thread please be nice to me. I may be wrong about that
