“So let me get this right, the political party built on the sweat of inherited wealth of the hubristic white " upper class" would be willing to champion a brown woman for the presidency? Shirley, you must be joking.”

Sadly, DICTIONARY.COM chose not to mention Columbine, Aurora, Newtown or Santa Barbara as examples of mass accidents set off by itchy trigger fingers. Maybe the solution to this epidemic is to require every freedom loving American to slather Calamine Lotion on every index finger.”
“Well there you have it, if you are gay Republican politician you have to live a life of lies in the shadows of fear, away from your own truth. If you're a gay Democrat office seeker you can simply get on with your political agenda without giving a flip about pleasing the delicate sensitivites of right-wing talk radio heads.”

“Neckties, I suppose, are meant to lend gravitas to any situation which , okay if that's your thing then wear away. But if you want me to believe wearing leftover polyester/silk outer garments lends gravity to every televised sporting event, then your necktie is a bit too snug.”
“"In 1938, then sympathetic to the fascist regimes ruling Germany, Italy and Japan, Fred wrote that he hoped one day the United States would resemble these nations, which had "overcome" the vices of "idleness, feeding at the public trough, [and] dependence on government."
Isn't it grand to behold the roots of super patriots who bitterly oppose every single government handout that doesn't directly enrich them? Poor, poor rich men.”
“The reason most men suffer more than women is merely a choice of haberdashery beckoning back to post Medieval times when necks were assumed to need fashion accessories. The mere fact that since the Middle Ages men have insisted on fashioning a passive tourniquet( be it a neck or bow-tie )around the carotid artery, thus restricting blood flow to the brain should be a clue that shouldn't be taken nearly as seriously as they take themselves.”
“Careful what you wish for Mr. Bush's brain, for if Wall Streets pin-up centerfold decides not to run then Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren will sweep the nomination and the presidency leaving more room in the dustpan of history for those who would chose war over peace, gluttony over shared shared sacrifice and thirty pieces of silver over the environment.”
“"But many residents do not dwell on the pace of executions at the Walls. “Unless the high-profile cases are going on, you don’t really know until you read about it the next day in the paper or you hear it on the news that an execution was going on,” said Heike Ness, 48, an insurance agent."
Wow, that statement is an eery echo of the statements made by the residents of the village of Dachau in post-war Germany regarding Hitler's first concentration camp.”
“I like the way this silly game is being overplayed before the first gavel is banged in anger. If there's anything we know about the House majority is that they believe in Truth, Justice and the Confederate, er, American Way.”
“If I were a vocal Democratic congressman with a background as a trial attorney (like, say, Alan Grayson) I would run, and not walk, to gain a seat on this second coming of the House Un-American Activities Committee circus-clown panel. I would spend my time drawing comparisons to an attack on a US consulate half-way around the world to the events behind 9/11 and how poorly Bush, et al handled the whole situation and how shoddily that "investigation" was.”

“I would ask how Benghazi compares to Darrell Issa committing insurance fraud and arson, and ask that of every witness.”
“Let's see now, excessive sugar intake leads to depression, depression leads to fear, fear leads to Fox News, Fox News leads to anxiety anxiety leads to " comfort foods" like ice cream, doughnute, or anything else off of a grocery store shelf, which is infused with sugar, corn syrup, malodextrin, dextrin.....which leads to American obesity. And the Sugerhill Band plays on.”

Is it any wonder that a nation of children built from Cheetos, Doritos, and Coolaid aren't great at learning? Or that adults built from Cheetos, Doritos, and Coolaid are simple enough to buy into the Fox News narrative and vote accordingly?”
“Isn't it past time the Senate majority began holding extensive hearings into how and why the US Air Defense system happened to stand down on the morning go 9/11; the overnight sleep overs of male prostitutes at the White House during the previous presidency; the war profiteering that saw Haliburton win no-bid contracts? Fair is fair, right?”
“What perfect places to give shelter to the homeless. Give them a place out of the elements with the understanding they have to care for and police the place themselves, and then let them live their lives out in the dignity and privacy they deserve.”
“How, or more precisely why, does the American media continually give more than just lip service to any religious leader, or any religious organization which professes themselves to be both Pro-Life and Pro-Death, as irrelevant to either wither on the vine of one true Love.”
