I thought he did OK...I mean, there were one or two moments where his attempts nearly approached a reasonable approximation of a somewhat life-like semblance of humanoid behavior signaling the possible presence of indications that may have suggested a quality comparable to an empathy-like emotion.

"I DO care about the suffering of others. When Rochester was taking me to the yacht club in the Dusenberg and accidentally ran over his own son I took the cost of the fuel he wasted while we idled waiting for an ambulance out of TWO of his paychecks, not one."

born_yesterday: Irving Maimway: He has no concept of what life is like for the people he's trying to empathize with.

No, but he has seen C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate, so he's got that going for him.


I just told a Republican coworker yesterday that I wasn't going to vote for Romney because he's just a Nexus One and I'm waiting for the Nexus Six to come out.

There must be some way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion
I can't get no relief
Businessmen they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line
Know what any of it is worth

Give Romney a break. He's had to deal with an uppity POTUS and now a female teacher? How much more do you expect him to take?

Weaver95: Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney set a new personal record tonight by pretending to care about average Americans for nearly ninety minutes.

There must be some way out of here
Said the joker to the thief

Cool song, and I used to write lines from it on my textbook covers made out of brown grocery bags. The biology teacher let the hamster escape once. In retrospect I guess smoking was dumb, but I was young and assumed I was invincible. That was the year I almost got with that one skinny chick.

markfara: On a related note: Someone told me that Candy Crowley was named after her favorite food. I googled that but couldn't find anything. Does anyone out there know whether this is true or not?


No, I heard that she's a relative of Aleister Crowley, making her half satanic on her father's side.

Irving Maimway: The man has lived his entire life in air conditioning and never needed money.


Um..pretty sure the Mormon mansion in Paris didn't have any air conditioning.
It was like Vietnam in that place.

Mitt has that one look after he delivers what he thinks is a crushing blow to someone's point. It's almost like "see daddy, I'm almost as good as you thought I would turn out"

Did we get a reading on the smirkometer? Or did it just burst into flames the moment Mitt entered the room, again?
