“"I hate Obama, I hate the Democratic party's positions, please make m the Democratic nominee for US Senate."
I don't get it. I mean, if you want to vote for a candidate who doesn't like Obama, you'll just vote for McConnell.
And if you want to vote for a candidate who does like Obama and the Democrats, well, tough luck.
It's like the Ben Nelson wing of the Democratic party is now led by Joe Manchin and the likes of Alison Lundergan Grimes.”

“One, that's not exactly what Grimes is saying and, two, she is running for a seat in the Senate that will extend beyond the end of President Obama's second term. This is an election about good representation of KY, something Kentuckians do not have with McConnell.”
“I have a female friend who once saw Angelina Jolie walking in New York City. My friend said the camera doesn't do Jolie justice. Actually, what she said was "I'm not a lesbian, but I'd..."
I met Valerie Plame Wilson at a book signing. Photos and videos don't do her justice.”

“It's kind of strange how everyone will see a famous woman and say, "she's not all that" or "too much plastic surgery" when most of these women are better looking than most of us. That's why they're famous. No hate here.”
“Who does Romney think he is? John McCain? The TV "news" shows have room to book only one sour grapes Republican presidential candidate, and McCain has the market cornered.”

“It is not about sour grapes, or losing an election. It is about the winner of the election not being in control of his administration. He appointed these minions, yet his response is " I didn't know", WTH, it is his job to know!
A few weeks ago, a story ran about a CVS photo shop employee putting a racial slur on a ladys receipt, everyone was saying CVS was responsible for their employees actions, and she should get millions from a lawsuit. well why don't you think Obama is responsible for his cabinet members, his sec. of state, his appointees, etc...?
At least Bush was man enough to say the buck stops here at my desk, Obama just points his finger to blame others, while saying "I didn't know", either he is the dumbest man to ever hold office or he is the greatest liar to ever hold office. You decide which.”
“The nameplate in front of Kenan Thompson playing Elijah Cummings reads "Doc Hastings." Hastings is a Republican Congressman from the state of Washington. The other guy, who's playing a Congressman is referred to as "Gowdy," but has a nameplate reading "Peter Welch." Welch is a Democrat from Vermont.”

“I got totally confused. I Googled Doc Hastings and he's a white dude. Hastily assembled sketch, much?”

“Plus the room setting was all wrong. Noway they would have just 3 asking the questions. How could they be so inaccurate in their presentation. Top it off with the Arias character. She was too short.”
“How about "former Congresswoman Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky may run again for Congress"?
How come a former member of Congress, who used to be married to another former member of Congress (Edward Mezvinsky), is only known as "Chelsea Clinton's relative" on the front page You couldn't even be bothered to call her "Chelsea Clinton's mother-in-law."”

“Huffpost employs clever children to write its headlines.”
“I don't believe Roberts is right about Massachusetts.
But even if he is, there's a HUGE difference between Roberts' claim that minorities in Massachusetts DON'T vote versus the fact that in Mississippi and other areas, local and state governments proactively PREVENT minorities from voting.
That proactive approach to keeping voter turnout low is what makes the Voting Rights Act necessary.”
“Only one side is obstructionist -- ONE. The solution to one side obstructing is not "bipartisanship".
Republicans think the "problem" with voting is that too many do it.
Their strategy is simple -- fewer voters means more Republicans get elected, so reduce the number of people who are able to cast ballots.
The Republican co-chair, Ben Ginsburg, was one of the main cheaters who stuck us with Bush in 2000.
If Democrats want to ensure that everyone who is eligible gets to vote, and if Republicans want to ensure that fewer people vote because fewer votes means more Republicans in office, what's the middle ground? Where's the "bipartisan" compromise?
There isn't one.”

“Some issues aren't worth compromising on....this is one of them.”
“What a travesty. Biggio, Morris, Bagwell, Piazza, Raines, Smith, Schilling, Martinez and Trammell CLEARLY belong in the Hall of Fame. Lofton ought to be a top tier candidate too. Argue about steroids with Clemens, Bonds, Sosa, Magwire and Palmeiro all you want, but the rest of these guys are not debatable.
What do the baseball writers think? That Biggio's 3,000 plus hits will increase over the next year? That Smith will get more saves between now and next year's vote?
You're either good enough or you're not. If you are, then the baseball writers have no business acting as phony gatekeepers using made up criteria for denying eligibility to deserving players.
And someone voted for Aaron Sele? What the hell? The only way that makes sense is if he's now a writer and voted for himself.”
