serpent_sky: I look forward to our second black President.


I've voted for Obama twice. I can't go back to voting for white guys.

Cory Booker conquered ice when he saved the dog from the freezing cold.
Cory Booker conquered fire when he saved a woman from a burning home.
Cory Booker conquered wind when he gave people shelter, delivered food, diapers, and blankets during Sandy.

I'm guessing there's an earthquake in Newark's not-to-distant future.

Are you insinuating that Cory Booker is the Avatar?

Obviously the guy is a Democrat. Had been a republican or libertarian he would have either just told the dog to pull itself down by it's own bootstraps or set up a webcam to laugh at the dog's suffering while he watched in the warm comfort of his home.

Warthog: ghare: Lochsteppe: Warthog: As I noted in my red-lit alternative to this headline: he is not a real person.  He is a PR campaign with legs, a city-issued SUV, and a twitter feed.

It's like his personality dial is set to "pander."

Let me guess: your handle in TFA's comments section is "newarktheghetto."

Can anyone without an irrational hatred of people clearly better than they are explain to me why some people hate people who are clearly better than they are? Or is this a Jersey thing?

I believe it's just plain ol' jealousy.

No, it isn't jealousy.  I do not care to hold political office.  I do not care to be Twitter famous. Or TFamous.  Or any other kind of famous.  And I certainly don't ever want to move back to New Jersey.  I *do* care about being a good husband and a good father, and a good co-worker to the people on my team at my office.  If not a single person outside those groups ever comes to know about how I've lived me life, I'm fine with that.    If I ever get a chance to rescue a dog from the cold, I'll be perfectly content if only the dog and I know about it.



Considering it was a reporter who told him about it in the first place he didn't really have that option in this case, did he?
So do you have any reason to tell us that he doesn't lead similarly all the time and not just when a reporter tweets him? Because if you don't then I just gotta say:

I read that first as "panda" not "pander" and I think they both work.

Gee. I can't imagine why your submission wasn't greened. Based on what you've written here, I'm sure it was quite the "bon mot." I'm super cereal.

The more I see from this cat, this more I like him.

Maybe we can, I dunno, clone him and have him run all the coastal cities?

Or set up some kind of Cory Booker/Krysten Sinema breeding program.

You know, for Sciene.
