Ah, Sarah, I love you so. Please, oh please, stay at the forefront of our political discourse. You look so lovely, and speak so well. I just adore you, Sarah.

2. headless lucy spews:

I can easily imagine Sarah sucking on my sweet-vine, but not as president.

3. Roger Rabbit spews:

Roger Rabbit can’t attend tonight because he’s busy doing stock market research. If we have a ‘January effect,’ I’m gonna relieve some Republicans of their money. It’s what I do. They must not want it anyway, if they’re giving it to me. =:-D<

4. proud leftist spews:

Rabbit
Republicans (the dwindling remnant of a dying party) are not very smart. Indeed, from a legal perspective, it is hard to believe anyone who still self-identifies with that party is legally competent. Roger, you practiced law, so you know that taking money from someone who is legally incompetent and unprotected by a court-appointed guardian is wrong. So, how do you justify taking money from Republicans? Do you think that taking money from Cynical or Puddy would be right, even if they told you to do so?

5. Roger Rabbit spews:

A white supremacist has confessed to Friday night’s cold-blooded murder of a Houston-area convenience store owner, police say.

Naushad Virani, 50, was shot during a robbery. Stevie “Bubba” Walder Jr., 31, is facing capital murder charges.

Walder told police he surrendered instead of shooting the arresting officers because they were white.

Walder is described as 6-foot-2, about 250 lbs., with a shaved head and Nazi SS tatoo on his neck, and driving a Dodge pickup with “a Republican Party sticker on the back window.”

Any chance Puddy would call the murder an act of terrorism?

7. Roger Rabbit spews:

@5 “So, how do you justify taking money from Republicans?”

Finders keepers.

“Do you think that taking money from Cynical or Puddy would be right, even if they told you to do so?”

It’s not only right, it’s patriotic! I’m saving America from them.

8. Roger Rabbit spews:

@6 I doubt it.

9. proud leftist spews:

Rabbit (did Updike inspire your moniker?),
Taking money from Republicans is surely a patriotic act. Still, if they are legally incompetent, as they most surely are, as an officer of the court, how can you guiltlessly take their money?

10. Roger Rabbit spews:

@9 “(did Updike inspire your moniker?)”

No. When I first began posting here, I used a variety of common first names, changing my screen name frequently to cover my tracks. When I got to “Roger,” I soon added “Rabbit” because it’s alliterative, and developing the “Roger Rabbit” persona followed.

“how can you guiltlessly take their money?”

I used to be a Republican myself.

11. Max Rockatansky spews:

Goebbels Rabbit seems more fitting a moniker….

12. rhp6033 spews:

I never found Sarah Palin to be that attractive. Heck, when I saw the video of the bathing suit competition in the beauty pagent, my first reaction was: “THIS is the BEST Wasilla could offer????”

But then, I’ve always been attracted to smart women. In high school I once dated a very attractive, but dumb, girl. She could have been a Jessica Simpson look-alike – complete with the southern accent. I swore I would never do anything like that again.

13. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

But then, I’ve always been attracted to smart women. In high school I once dated a very attractive, but dumb, girl.

Somehow you contradicted yourself… Maybe she thought of herself as a woman! Kind of sexist too…

14. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Maybe YOUR president was actually talking about Napolitano when he said this… “There was a mix of human and systemic failures that contributed to this potential catastrophic breach of security.”

Was she the human or systemic failure?

15. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Best WA Po commentary today…

How can it be that British authorities denied Abdulmutallab’s request for a visa renewal — without triggering a comparable review by U.S. officials? Was the United States not informed or did U.S. authorities simply not take action in response? Either there is a continuing problem of intergovernmental communication or a continuing problem of bureaucratic lassitude. How can it be that an individual passenger (a) traveling from Nigeria, with its known security lapses, (b) not checking luggage and (c) purchasing a ticket with cash was not singled out for additional screening? What did he have to do — wear a sign saying, “You might want to check my underwear”?

16. czechsaaz spews:

Puuuuddddyyyyyy…

I’ve only been up for a few minutes and I get to make fun of you.

Read the post, then think for a moment.

She was “very attractive, but dumb.” “I swore I would never do that again.” Which kind of woman wins in the end, all other things being equal, smart or attractive?

But then, as with HCR bills, I’ve proven exhaustively that reading comprehension isn’t in your skill set.

17. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Second best commentary today

This was not just one supposedly out-of-context stumble by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano; it was the official line. Making the rounds of Sunday talk shows, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs resisted every effort to get him to acknowledge that something had gone seriously wrong.

Christmas Day… Nice day gotta go golfing with my Chicago buds… Gotta call Rahm… He’ll know what to say… Make sure Gibbs tells the slobbering friends in the press there was no terrorist threat on Sunday… Wait it’s Monday… Gotta call a presser… Three days to prepare… No TOTUS, no tie, no questions; just three days late… Why are people upset with my comments… Hey I’m on vacation dammit… Call him a suspect, an individual… can’t call him a terrorist… Wait it’s Tuesday… call it human and systemic failures… Wait it’s Wednesday… Give Janet some street cred… let her write attempted terrorist attack… What will tomorrow bring?

Stay Tuned.

18. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Ummm checksaaz,

If any conservative wrote what rhp6033 wrote you’d be calling us names until you inhaled again.

Also calling a person a dumb girl vs a smart woman is sexist and misogynist. Maybe rhp6033 married someone smart but “ugly”? So Puddy guesses Helen Thomas fits his tastes? Maureen Doud? Andrew Dworkin? Susan Estrich? These are considered “smart women”!

Get it…? No you are too stupid to get it.

19. Karen spews:

@13 Maybe she thought of herself as a woman! Kind of sexist too

Kinda? He’s a sexist chump with an inflated view of himself.

20. czechsaaz spews:

@18 and to a lesser extend 19

I still refer to anyone I dated prior to college a girl. But I’ve dated women and married a woman. My neighbor has a daughter.
She is a junior in high school. I refer to her as a girl. His wife? Woman. (And liberals are accused of reading sexism into everything. I suppose you could make an arguement that it’s ageist…)

I get it. Find the most trivial and inconsequential thing ever and try to make an issue of it. Ignorant or Douchebag, Puddy. Choice?

21. Mr. Cynical spews:

Prezdint O-BOMB-out!
His chronic lying and misleading the Public is obviously catching up with him,

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 25% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -16.

Confidence in the War on Terror has fallen following the Christmas Day airline attack. For the first time since October 2007, the number who believe the terrorists are winning has reached 30%. Just 36% believe the U.S. and its allies are winning. Seventy-eight percent (78%) say it’s at least somewhat likely that the proposed health care reform legislation will cost more than projected. Eighty-one percent (81%) also believe passage of the legislation is at least somewhat likely to lead to higher middle class taxes and 68% believe it will increase the federal budget deficit.

Why would anyone “rally around” this failure??
Pander to terrorists??
Call this an “isolated incident”???
O-BOMB-out is simply unfit to lead.
He does not understand we are at war with terrorists.

22. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

checksaaz,

You are one ignorant moron. First rhp6033 never told us her age or grade level. Yet you ASSume something he never said. So she may have been 18, legally a woman while he was dating her. Yet if Puddy wrote the same sentence you’d be all over Puddy like the shit scent on Herr Goebbels Dumb Bunny. You on the other hand don’t qualify as a man. Just a misogynist!

23. GBS spews:

Mr. Cynical at 21:

OK, for the sake of argument, suppose your Ouiji Board Rassmussen Reports polls are correct and the public is against Obama in 2012

Seriously, who on the right is going to make Obama a 1 term president?

24. karen spews:

@20 to a lesser extend 19

Don’t lecture a woman about sexism, you moron. His language went right over your head, despite your CliffNotes.

There’s little worse than self-styled progressives who are clueless.

25. Roger Rabbit spews:

@11 If I wasn’t being called names by pigshit like you, I’d worry. Thanks for affirming my work! It comforts me to know I get on your nerves.

26. Roger Rabbit spews:

@13 “But then, I’ve always been attracted to smart women. In high school I once dated a very attractive, but dumb, girl.”

But aren’t those the kind you want to date in high school? When all you care about is what happens in the back seat?

27. Roger Rabbit spews:

@14 Then again, maybe he wasn’t.

28. Roger Rabbit spews:

@15 It might help if Sen. DeMint (R-Idiot) didn’t hold up appointment of a Homeland Security secretary to keep TSA workers from unionizing. But DeMint’s hatred of unions outweighs passenger safety.

P.S., if anyone ever needed a union, it’s TSA workers.

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2001977322_tsa12.html

“Workplace conditions jeopardize passenger safety, screeners say

“Copyright 2004, The Seattle Times Company

“By Ken Armstrong, Cheryl Phillips and Steve Miletich, Seattle Times staff reporters

“On any given day, federal workers who screen passengers and luggage at the nation’s airports stand a good chance of being berated by bosses, harassed on the job, injured while lugging heavy bags, ordered to work extra hours or cheated on their pay.

“In Seattle, a screener received a letter of admonishment for this offense: ‘Hands in uniform pants pockets.’ A Denver screener says a supervisor repeatedly called him ‘boy’ — and explained it away by saying that where he is from, that’s what blacks are called. A Los Angeles screener injured his arm lifting a passenger’s bag that held not clothes or toiletries but a small engine block.

“Some screeners struggle to stay awake while trying to spot weapons in grainy X-ray images. Some get distracted by managers prowling for petty infractions. Some have been fired by mistake, victims of bureaucratic bungling.

“Morale has suffered, and with it, security.”

Roger Rabbit Commentary: Obama inherited the joke that is called “airport security” from Bush and the Republicons. This clusterfuck is brought to you by the GOP’s anti-union, anti-worker ideology.

29. Mr. Cynical spews:

GBS spews–

Seriously, who on the right is going to make Obama a 1 term president?

It appears it is going to be a looooooooong list of qualified candidates on the Right.
Obam-Mao has alienated so many people in just 11 months…and his trend is quite poor.
Obam-Mao came out of nowhere and had the MSM pandering to him rather than vetting him.
Now look where we stand. Not good.

I think the Conservative Candidate may very well be Paul Ryan (R-WI). It has to be someone who is squeaky clean because the MSM will put him thru the ringer. Ryan is one of the few Congressman that actually reads and understands Legislation BEFORE voting.
Something we all should assume is done…but obviously isn’t.

The next President will be a technically sound Conservative.
Obam-Mao will be a mere footnote in history…known only as being the 1st 1/2 Black President.

30. rhp6033 spews:

Puddy @ 13: It’s not inconsistent, nor is it sexist. The girl I was referencing was sixteen at the time (I was 17). She was pretty clearly still a “girl”.

As usual, you are jumping to conclusions based on assumptions which might be convenient to your wishes, but are inaccurate nonetheless.

Oh, and by the way, my wife is quite good-looking, and smart as a whip to boot.

31. Don Joe spews:

@ 30

“Oh, and by the way, my wife is quite good-looking, and smart as a whip to boot.”

I’ve shown some of Puddy’s musings to my wife, and she’s responded with nearly uncontrollable fits of laughter. She was particularly fond of the whole NYMEX is in New York, therefore it’s run by Democrats schtick.

32. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

Puddy’s wife looks at the crap from all HA Libtardos and she shakes her head side to side. SJ has met Puddy’s wife.

33. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

rhp6033… You made a misogynist comment. Everything else is irrelevant. Puddy guesses you were still a “boy”.

See ya!

34. my ancestors came from Europe spews:

“Karen” seems to be the same person that attacked Roger Rabbit. Can’t recall the name right now.

“Karen” like “Sue” before her is conveniently about to tag team with Stupes to attack an HA regular.

I bet “Karen” is very intimate with Stupes..

What a comedy act.

35. my ancestors came from Europe spews:

You made a misogynist comment.

You make transform yourself into a champion fool with each feckless attack..

U.S. taking majority ownership of GMAC The federal government said Wednesday it will take majority control of the troubled auto lender GMAC, providing another $3.8 billion in aid to the company, which has been unable to raise from private investors the money it needs to staunch its losses. GMAC, which already has taken $12.5 billion in direct federal aid along with other forms of government support, is the largest lender to General Motors and Chrysler dealerships and to their auto-buying customers.

Puddy called this long ago! ylb arschloch can provide the link!

From +32 to -18…IN THE SAME POLL!
Go ahead & pretend it’s not true.
Go into the New Year believing Obam-Mao is doing better than in the eyes of American Voters than when he was elected.
Life in the Klouds must be like smokin’ a bowlful with Lee!

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 24% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18. Twenty-nine percent (29%) now say the country is heading in the right direction.

This is great news for the Atheist Progressive Movement, right GBS??

Now you sound like one of those HA Libtardo progressives.

41. my ancestors came from Europe spews:

36 – Heh.. He denies his silly tag team through name calling..

Where have we seen THAT before??

It must be so lonely here for you Stupes. Misery loves company.. You’re desperate for others to share your silly compulsion..

Even if you have to make those others up like you did with MWS..

38 – LMAO!!! An attack on Stupes’ tag team troll from the right wing…

Reaction to this ought to be interesting..

Such a lonely miserable troll.. C’ya in another week moron.

40 – There it is!!!! Such an idiotic failure!!! Fem-Nazi is Limbaugh-speak you STUPID MORON!!!

42. Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

ylb arschloch fool@41,

Puddy has no idea who Karen is you feckless frothing foolish arschloch chump. You vicariously live through other peeps commentary you can’t make a cogent argument. Glad you are scooting along knuckle-dragging progressive.

So tell us what does this sentence mean…?

You make transform yourself into a champion fool with each feckless attack..

Sound like you through and through… Maybe Proud Leftist can decode arschloch farts!

Oh yeah Happy New Year… Hope you find employment.

Fem-Nazi is for the Code Pink and NOW peeps. You can’t even get Limbaugh’s attacks correct.

Whatamoron!

Ben “Backroom Deal” Nelson’s sleazy deal going over like a LEAD BALLOON!!

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

The good news for Senator Ben Nelson is that he doesn’t have to face Nebraska voters until 2012. If Governor Dave Heineman challenges Nelson for the Senate job, a new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey shows the Republican would get 61% of the vote while Nelson would get just 30%. Nelson was reelected to a second Senate term in 2006 with 64% of the vote.

Nelson’s health care vote is clearly dragging his numbers down. Just 17% of Nebraska voters approve of the deal their senator made on Medicaid in exchange for his vote in support of the plan. Overall, 64% oppose the health care legislation, including 53% who are Strongly Opposed. In Nebraska, opposition is even stronger than it is nationally. Fifty-six percent (56%) of voters in the state believe that passage of the legislation will hurt the quality of care, and 62% say it will raise costs.

44. my ancestors came from Europe spews:

Puddy has no idea who Karen is

and I AM PUDDYBUD, not and my word is my bond, blah, blah, blah..

Yawwwwwwnnnn…

45. my ancestors came from Europe spews:

Oh yeah Happy New Year…

Can’t wish the same for you. It’d be wasted on a miserable, OCD fool addled by right wing bullshit.

You’ll be doing the same shit a year from now for sure..

Too sad.

46. my ancestors came from Europe spews:

Naushad Virani, 50, was shot during a robbery. Stevie “Bubba” Walder Jr., 31, is facing capital murder charges.

So Stupes. Was this person of color killed by this white supremacist because of the right wing policies practiced in the Lone Star state?
