This is what a Democrat actually believes.
No wonder she keeps getting re-elected.

She either misspoke, or it is what that particular Democrat actually believes.

She's a farking embarrassment to the party, either way though.

Interesting that you would refer to yourself as a "relentless hack".

But I am glad that you believe it passes for cutting wit.

great.
things don't seem to be working out for you since you have some odd need to randomly attack people.
sad, really.
Hope you get better.

I know you won't care, but I believe my time on Fark will be vastly improved by subtracting your consistently juvenile postings.  I've held off, because I value cogent oppositional viewpoints.  You have ceased to bring anything to the discussion.

It's funny the way you two show up like clockwork in a thread where a Democrat may have simply mis-spoke, but are utterly absent from threads where Republican heroes talk about legitimate rape rape, say that domestic violence isn't that bad and that some people like living in abusive relationships, vote against the VAWA because it might help teh gheys, lie about being threatened by the White House, make blatantly racist statements from the Supreme Court bench, hold the U.S. economy hostage unless Obama agrees to f*ck the poor and give tax cuts to the rich, or just in general sound like f*cking misogynist, racist assholes as a whole.

Actually, it was about the terrible terrible article that tries to make something out of nothing and doesn't even cite an author that I can see. It wasn't about you at all. But apparently you feel a bit thin-skinned tonight.

Doesn't she know that If we went negative 30 million jobs the island might tip over?

And turn off that debt clock!

FTFY. The article itself states she corrected herself...and had used the corrected figure in an earlier tweet. The horror.

You guys tripping over yourselves to defend old Maxine from a simple slip of the tongue that she later corrected do realize that she is still an embarrassment to your party regardless, right?

I heard that Bob Woodward got scared by his grandson's jack-in-the-box yesterday. We can talk about that.

With all these egregious mistakes that have led to the deaths of thousands of servicemen, certainly Sarah Palin is President by now.

If one of the jobs lost is hers, the sequester will be well worth it!

Who cares? Government jobs aren't real jobs anyway. Do you think the interstate highway system would have ever gotten built if we were relying on government workers?

Let all these people get non-cushy jobs in the private sector and struggle like the rest of us. This is America, no one wants to hear you boo-hoo if you have to sweat a little to put food on the table.

We'd love to see, for example, a vote in the United States Senate on a moratorium on Federal regulations, which are coming out by the thousands, costing businesses billions and billions of jobs. We'd love to see a vote on that. But it will be interesting to see if the Majority Leader will allow it.http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/post/john-mccains-i deas- will-save-billions-and-biillions-of-jobs/2011/10/13/gIQAJpW1hL_blog.ht ml3.bp.blogspot.com

Hey now, those things are legitimately creepy. Clowns that hide in a box only to jump out when summoned by a certain song? Sounds demonic to me.

I liked how you parsed that.  Instead of saying "This is what Maxine Waters actually believes" you say "This is what a Democrat actually believes."  The implication being that if a person is "a Democrat", then that's what they actually believe.

Plus, you can give yourself plausible deniability when someone accuses you of painting Democrats with the same brush, even though no other Democrat will back up her claims.  Not elected ones and certainly not pundits.

Well done.
*golf clap*
