He actually might have gotten good video had he confronted him. "Boy, how dare you address me! Jeeves, have this riff raff removed posthaste!"

Frederick: Oh, I agree -there would have been consequences. But still; the ants have got to stand up to the grasshopper sometime. Maybe this ant would have been squished -but enough ants and the grasshopper gets his.

The ants (us little people if I'm not making myself clear) at some point have to take responsibility for getting shiat on.


I just spent 20 minutes watching the video of Scott Prouty's comments on The Ed Show, and reading the accompanying Mother Jones article. What Scott did, by refusing to come out of anonimity, was make sure the conversation stayed about the contents of the message rather than the guy who recorded it. He changed the face of an American election, and didn't get paid to do so. He could have taken money at any time for interviews, but he didn't, because that would have opened him up to all kinds of attacks and made the conversation about him rather than the words on the tape.

Sometimes doing what you believe in isn't so profitable.

Like the way John McCain treated medical marijuana patients who questioned his position?

Actually, McCain was gracious and let them state their question, and didn't demand they be removed. He was, however, rather dismissal of their claims that medical marijuana was beneficial, and stated that he had talked to many who claimed the opposite - never mind the fact that McCain (on several occasions) was talking to a medical marijuana patient in front of him and telling the patient that he (the patient) was incorrect about about the effectiveness of the medicine he was taking!

But he was somewhat gracious on the whole (in comparison to some other candidates), in that he let people ask their questions.

Sgt Otter: Is there a reasoning behind it?  Being compared to a lemon usually isn't very flattering.


Buggered if I know. I've always taken it as a compliment. *shrugs*

anfrind: Mitt falls in the second because he got a huge boost at the start of his career from his father's fortune and never knew what it was like to be poor.


Oh no.  Remember when he and Ann got their first apartment and they had to use an ironing board as a table because their furniture hadn't arrived yet?  And they hadn't hired a butler or cook yet so they had to server themselves?

stoli n coke: It's conditioned response. Years of talk radio and idiot relatives have gotten SJ to immediately associate "welfare" with "unmarried black woman with 8 kids who drives a Cadillac and has a big screen TV, paid for by taxpayers.


Not only that, but because welfare isn't taxed the welfare queen is not an income tax filer therefore she cannot be part of the 47% of filers who pay no federal income tax.

I am up too late and remembering what working poor means. We had a sofa that had a brick holding up one end. Our tv had a screen that rolled unless you thumped it. My big sis got wise and grabbed an armful of shoes. Toss a shoe at the upper left hand corner to stop the roll, gather them up during commercials...reload. Hand me downs and thrift stores, Rice a Roni with ground beef.... I didn't feel poor but I see as an adult that my mom raised us girls on a shoestring budget. What we lacked in material things, we made up for, in spades, with a mom who turned us on to music, art,literature, strategic thinking, and compassion. I didn't realize we were financially poor till I was an adult. I watched the RNC, the whole "we had it rough" routine and couldn't wrap my brain around how people that grew up poor like me or poorer, and are still struggling, could think Romney gave a rat's ass about them.
