Look, I realize this is Fark, but the man's name is pronounced "Bay-nher". Let's not be a bunch of dicks, and go off half-cocked at every headline that makes some sort of juvenile reference to the man's name. He's third in line for the Presidency, which is hard to achieve. It's a great distance to rise, and they'll probably erect monuments to him in Ohio.

And while we're at it, sure, the man drinks. Who doesn't? But I don't want to spend the next 2 years talking about Boehner vomiting White Russians. Let's have a bit of respect.

And the GOP did feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu...

Skip a bit, Brother.


And Lord Reagan spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pinhead. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Boehner of the GOP towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.

My mother remarried a man very close to the inner workings of the House.

He has told me things only to have them come true. So I told him not to tell me what happened next but then this is the news that came. He laughed, but I told him that it was a lie. So I thought I had him until he showed me links and I had to apologize. I told him will never ask him to tell me nothing again until checking Fark first-thing every day. Then I found out he is a Farker!

My mother is a whore.

I hope the Republicans not just going off half-cocked by making Boehner their speaker again.  I hope they stiffen their spines and rise to the occasion. But we didn't really think Boehner would just give up and limp home, would he, even if the teabaggers won't stand up for him? As the head of the Republicans in Congress, can't go soft here. He needs to work really hard--on through the the whole term if necessary--and keep hammering at it. I mean, when the next debt limit debate comes in a couple of weeks, I don't care if the Republicans in Congress have to pitch a tent right there on the Congressional floor and spend the whole night there, waking up with wood floors as their beds, and filibustering this thing if they have to. Yeah, it's true that Fartbama has threatened to veto their efforts and yeah, the President's veto pen is mighty, but by standing firm Boehner can get Fartbongo to prick up his ears and listen and know that the Republicans are serious. But it's not enough to for the speaker to just erect procedural barriers--he needs to steel his resolve and hit those wimpy, chubby Democrats hard, like a semi truck, until they just give up and go home with their heads drooped. Don't dicker with them, just fire a budgetary rocket at 'em. I'm not saying he should get too cocky, but this is no time to spare the rod--if he does, taxpayers will get the shaft once again, so he needs to show a rock-hard commitment, bone up on the budget issues, and drive it home. I know that the Republicans in Congress don't have great opinion pole favorability numbers right now, but one way to get it up is for the Republicans to give American families a full salute and throw each of them a bone--daddy, mommy, grandparents, and all the kids. If they do that one morning, wouldn't you have to think that when it's in the newspaper the next morning, glory will be spread to all the Republicans?!

Something to think about!

Uncle Arthur gave me hope as a scared little gay boy. He was so obviously flaming, and yet he was completely accepted by his family and beloved by his niece. I was convinced I would one day lose my family and be hated by them forever when I eventually came out, so it was reassuring to see an example of a gay man who still had his family's respect and love.

Plus, he was an uber-powerful Warlock who pushed-around the uptight anti-magic Darren and teased him mercilessly. Most of the humour of Bewtiched came from watching the conservative priggish Darren being befuddled by his more powerful and intelligent wife, and it was the same with Uncle Arthur - a witty gay man in a position of power above a weaker straight guy was just not something you saw on tv.

Actually, I'm not sure it's a dynamic you see on television today, come to think of it. Bewitched was rather subversive.

/I just watched a Bewitched marathon on New Year's Day. I hadn't seen it in decades - it was awesome. I'm going to buy the dvd sets now.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: I have such a major dumb when it comes to politics. WTF is wrong with these people that they have to be all crazy like? I go out of my way when voting to make sure I at least somewhat understand all of what's going on, but our congress, they apparently don't feel it's part of their job. They seem to vote on what their little line in the sand is based on and what others tell them to do. They need to start hanging out at Fark. I've learned a lot of stuff here. I think if congress members were required to pay Drew $5/mo., they'd be a lot smarter about things.

"We're dicks! We're reckless, arrogant, stupid dicks. And the Film Actors Guild are pussies. And Kim Jong Il is an asshole. Pussies don't like dicks, because pussies get farked by dicks. But dicks also fark assholes: assholes that just want to shiat on everything. Pussies may think they can deal with assholes their way. But the only thing that can fark an asshole is a dick, with some balls. The problem with dicks is: they fark too much or fark when it isn't appropriate - and it takes a pussy to show them that. But sometimes, pussies can be so full of shiat that they become assholes themselves... because pussies are an inch and half away from ass holes. I don't know much about this crazy, crazy world, but I do know this: If you don't let us fark this asshole, we're going to have our dicks and pussies all covered in shiat! "
