Farking POS  bastards.


Hey.  If you manage to find the golden eldorado of internet forums where the trollishness is far less than here, and the quality of banter/discussion is far greater, please let us know.  I'll be happy to jump ship with you.  Posting here is kinda like voting Democrat.....  They don't really identify with me completely, and I'd like a better alternative, but realistically my options are this or the equivalent of youtube comments.

Sorry to interrupt some back-patting and caressing, but he lost the election do to the electorate, not because of a lower intelligence. By your logic, Bush was the most intelligent in 2000 and 2004.

Do you know why we know you flunked reading comprehension?  BTW its "due" not "do"


In TFA it states Cain said "a first grader would approach these problems a lot  smarter". Can't you comprehend that's what the Weenerser was referring to?

BTW it's "Do you know  how we..." not "why". Use the word "how" when asking "in what manner", and use the word "why" when asking "for what reason".

Imagine a standardized pre-voting test. The outrage would be swift, and of course the test itself would be "designed" to marginalize segments of voters.

"But we only asked to list if they knew who was vice president, and the polices of the candidate they were voting for."

"Then why did you ask them to list all of the "Friend's" characters?"

"We thought that show had a culturally diverse following."

Love me some Herman Cain. It's carpetbagging but he brings pizza out of that bag before he lines it with your donations. He reads Pokemon lyrics as if they were Twain and asks you to love him for it. He's the guy who undeniably doesn't give one shiat about anything other than his own wallet, and Republicans loved him for it.

He's farking Herman Colbert.

I was trying to narrow down your exact dislike of the ad. I didn't know if it was because of something like...

a. It Incites unnecessary hatred against those who caused 9/11 (or those who look like them)
b. That he was being disingenuous about 9/11 (that in reality he personally was emotionally unaffected about 9/11, and he was just pandering for votes.
c. That using 9/11 imagery to remember the tragedy was wrong because the victims or families of those perhaps would not agree with Cain's politics.
d. That the narrow-visioned "my country is always right" nationalism that is implied in that video is dangerous ideology to hold.
Or others or combination of those.

Certainly you wouldn't put it on the same level of grotesqueness as a pro-9/11 video, or would that be validated somehow.

Yeah, I can't tell where he's getting that derp from either. Cain's 9-9-9 plan, "empowerment zones", and a desire to get rid of the minimum wage were the reasons most people thought of him as a joke to begin with.

Cutting payroll taxes, mandated employer covered healthcare, and mandatory minimum wage increase...all of which are understandable for huge businesses like wal-mart but kills small businesses. For example even big corporations like Papa John's, who admittedly has a greedy CEO, franchise their business name and model out to small time business owner's, who pay a monthly franchise fee to use it. They are not the millionaire's. Many actually plan a 2-5 year loss in personal revenue.

The thing I liked most about Herman Cain?  That slow smile thing he did.  It was as if someone was off camera, admonishing him to smile, over and over again, and only getting him to comply by slowly tightening the thumbscrews.

Herman Cain speaking at Thumpercon tells the crowd that they are "Ambassadors of intelligence" and that Obama is not smarter than a second grader?

They must have loved that. Stupid people usually love being told they are smart.

Making noises like he might run again?

So do we know that name of his new book yet or will he be releasing it closer to rube-plucking season in 2015?
