Some Blah woman DOESN'T KNOW HER PLACE and made fun of the GOPs inability to perform their marital duties.

Rep's comedy act doesn't go over well, article fixates on awkwardly worded Cialis jokes and glosses over her poking Issa over Benghazi. Which is awesome.

Pay a writer or buy a joke book.

"My only wife" was pretty funny.

She was one botched joke away from the presidency.

No, she really did compare working closely with the GOP to "Cialis separate-bathtub time". It's weird, but no more so than the GOPs infatuation with force-feeding metaphors.

// from a long tradition of same, I'm finding out
// like EVERY SINGLE Anti-Federalist Paper compares that vote to cramming something down the throats of the people - a pill, a rancid meal, a spoiled tincture...

Tough crowd.

This explains EVERYTHING!

Since she's a woman, and it's the GOP, I assume she's talking about getting a rape boner in her?
 
2014-02-06 02:47:09 PM
She has the weirdest boner right now.
 
2014-02-06 02:47:10 PM
It's hard.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: She has the weirdest boner right now.


Female hyenas have to tuck their penis inside their before the males can mate with them. I saw a video of it, her vagnis was bigger than his penis.

I've seen a female hyena's false penis in real life. It was... Breathtaking.

/Hyena's Vagenis would be a good band name.

To be fair, that's only weird because the Cialis separate bathtub thing is just plain freakin' weird to begin with.

It makes perfect sense as generic branding:  find something random and pointlessly unique that can only be associated with your product.  Change your name to "Verizon" or "Zouvouvazz", replace your logo with a swooshy random glyph, have all your commercials feature a creepy silhouette woman walking around anxiously repeating affirmations about her asthma.  See, it's a silhouette because asthma is... well it symbolizes... well no.  No it's just a thing.  And pharmaceutical companies are the goddamn kings of that world.

But then you have the sexytime aspect.  If two people in separate bathtubs were used to sell any other pharmaceutical, it would be surprisingly normal.  Using it to sell boner pills leaves us all wondering why this nonsensical arrangement has been portrayed as a euphemism for sex.

This might help your point - which I agree with.

Last night, we were watching a show where one of the characters lands a commercial for meds for men with low testosterone and weak boners. His love interest in the commercial looked a good 10-15 years older than he did (which was humiliating). Mr. H pointed out that in those commercials always have a women who looks younger than the guy because that's the fantasy.

In Canada, it is marketed as two people in separate canoes which makes much more sense if you think about it.  Actually, if you look at that image long enough, you don't even need a boner pill.

Yes, that is who you think it is.
We've rarely seen this level of bipartisanship

working with Republicans to getting a boner

Both happen to immature men with limited ability to relate to women, both necessitate covering up lest embarassment be had, both reduce blood to the brain, both are responses to stimuli which involve short term rewards, and both are things one hopes an adult can avoid.

It's a very good analogy.
