Apathetic? Uninformed? Don't even vote? Have your bread and want your circus?

All creatures great and small, my ass.

That's why I am not too crazy about losing weight. It is my round, jolly face that keeps me looking younger. Ha!

You vigilantes have not righted the scales of justice. All you have done is sat at your computer and wrecked a person's life.

This possibly explains why Sharpton seems to have been around for so long while only being 60:

He felt most himself at the front of the room and always had, ever since his mother built pews in his playroom so he could learn to talk at age 2 to an audience of his sisterís dolls. A traveling boy preacher by age 6. Ordained by 9. Organizing voter drives by 12.

Obama looked like he felt terrible in his Grammy message.

Yes, or that he has a bad cold / allergies.

One reason ISIS hates cartoonists:

The group is so easily satirized.

Asking as a person from Wisconsin, does anyone think Walker has a chance in hell of being the Republican candidate? He is so incredibly polarizing here that I can't imagine it, but the media seems to be going crazy about him. I personally don't like him or most of his policies, but that doesn't affect my ability to see him as a candidate. I just think the Republicans would be seriously hindering themselves if they considered him as a valid person running for president.

Walker appears at the moment to have a very real chance.

I also think, however, that the Republican establishment is pretty happy to have him as a way of keeping Cruz or Paul from making a serious threat. If the media succeeds in finding a pin to puncture the Walker balloon, then Jeb will be left standing. If not, Walker is pro business, too, and will likely play ball with them on immigration.

Either way, they win.

Cold ass honky

"He is so incredibly polarizing"

You mean like Obama?

Novamida -- Thursday, February 26, 2015 -- 09:12:07 PM -- 5421 of 5431

Oh - it has been much worse than Obama. I know people that won't even be in the same room any more - families have been fractured through arguments about what's been going on. WI is split almost entirely 50/50, and the gap between them is huge.

I couldn't care less whether Walker is divisive or not. If he can be an effective leader for the things I care about, I just want him to win.

Cold ass honky

See, when liberals hate a conservative, the conservative is divisive. When conservatives hate a liberal, they're just h8rs!!11!

I'm of the view that if a conservative isn't divisive to liberals, then he's not doing his job.

So I'm very satisfied to hear that Walker has Wisconsin liberals like Novamida thinking of taking an axe to their conservative relations

Novamida -- Friday, February 27, 2015 -- 06:11:39 PM -- 5426 of 5431

I never ever talk politics to anyone except my husband. I'm sure most people just assume I'm a staunch Republican like everyone else in this area. I live in about the reddest of the red counties, so the rhetoric I've been hearing is not from liberals.

It could be worse.

John Kerry could be President.

(Man on left is the Russian foreign minister.)

Monica Lewinsky has always seemed to me more attractive at a little distance than in close-ups, but I have to say she's looking a might better than Bill Clinton these days.

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Rand Paul used to tweet under Rand Paul.

He's now tweeting under "Dr. Rand Paul."

Found a cached tweet, and he *was* @SenRandPaul / Senator Rand Paul.

Now, he's:

@RandPaul / Dr. Rand Paul

@DrRandPaul / Rand Paul

The old account no longer exists.
