“Your grammatical inadequacy pales in comparison to your complete lack of knowledge about the potential appointees.”

“"William Thomas, nominee to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida Obama nominated Thomas, a judge for Florida's 11th Judicial Circuit, in November 2012. His Republican home state senator, Marco Rubio, said in September 2013 that he will block Thomas from getting a hearing, even though he recommended him for the post in the first place."

So is Marco Rubio, admitting he is not fit to govern because he can only nominate someone who is not fit for the job. By contrast is he saying he is fit to govern because anyone he nominates is clearly not qualified?”

“As a gay, atheist liberal with socialist tendencies, I am VERY careful to steer clear of politics, religion and sexuality with all my tables. Since I don't "look gay"....whatever that means... I usually pass. I also work in a steak house and our guests are usually overfed Republicans. I am very, very careful.”
