Mentat: "Jim Demint without the charm."According to Robert's Rules of Order, that constitutes a burn.Do I have a second?
Mr. Breeze: Basically it boils down to "STFU noob."
Magorn: Mentat: "Jim Demint without the charm."According to Robert's Rules of Order, that constitutes a burn.Do I have a second?I believe there is a motion to re-commit on the table vis-a-vis whether an "Oh SNAP" would be an appropriate determination at this point

Alphax: I heard some NPR reporter refer to Ted Cruz as a 'rising star' in the Senate.. funny, I thought he was a punchline already.
DROxINxTHExWIND: YOU ARE BASING YOUR ASSUMPTION THAT HES AN ASSHOLE ON THE INFORMATION GIVEN TO YOU BY A BUNCH OF OTHER ASSHOLES.
tlchwi02: DROxINxTHExWIND: You mean the "unwritten" rule that he wasn't supposed to express his opinion? How are these rules doing at giving us a functioning Congress? Last I heard, no one is compromising with anyone else so how has this helped anything?so wait, your answer to "people are polarized in the senate and its hindering their ability to compromise" is "so they should be even less civil and more of a pack of a$$holes" to each other and surely that will mean compromise"? what planet do you live on?
m00: cram_hole: So Cruz can't run for president, right? I mean he had an American mother and a foreign father and he wasn't born on American soil, so he's not eligible, right birthers?Not a birther, but (from wikipedia)The weight of legal and historical authority indicates that the term "natural born" citizen would mean a person who is entitled to U.S. citizenship "by birth" or "at birth", either by being born "in" the United States and under its jurisdiction, even those born to alien parents; by being born abroad to U.S. citizen-parents; or by being born in other situations meeting legal requirements for U.S. citizenship "at birth". Such term, however, would not include a person who was not a U.S. citizen by birth or at birth, and who was thus born an "alien" required to go through the legal process of "naturalization" to become a US citizen.So, yes. If his mother is American he is entitled to US citizenship at birth.
m00: Yeah, Gosling I would agree with you if Congress was effective or had high approval ratings. But you have to understand people are electing loud-mouth agitators because they want Congress to be shaken up. That's all. And I can't say I disagree with that sentiment. I am sick of "business as usual." Ted Cruz may be a jerk, but I don't think he's a "business as usual" slimebag. But again, I haven't really researched him so maybe I'm wrong.
Gosling: DROxINxTHExWIND: You mean the "unwritten" rule that he wasn't supposed to express his opinion? How are these rules doing at giving us a functioning Congress? Last I heard, no one is compromising with anyone else so how has this helped anything?It may be an unwritten rule, but the guys in the seats that matter most abide by it and can easily relegate anyone who violates it to the Subcommttee on Bowel Odor Comparisons.
randomjsa: IE, he destroyed the liberal position on guns with a single question and made Feinstein look like a fool, so now you hate him.There is nothing that quite so much angers a liberal than the knowledge that they've been proven wrong.
Lionel Mandrake: Shostie: GAT_00: Yeah, but Cruz wasn't the underdog.Against Dewhurst he was. Once again, if it weren't for the gerrymandering, Cruz would have been knocked out in the primary.How do you gerrymander a state?
