The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
No Republican, can stand in the way of a Balck Woman ascending to SCOTUS. Except Probably Collins,Snowe.
I think Reid is already exhibiting BAD FAITH. he is starting to want to delay voting....interesting...
i think reid has demonstrated himself INCAPABLE of acting in GOOD faith.
they dang well better ram those three through before memorial day.
Been up. I stay up.
OK, I've heard about JBR, Owen, and Prior and sacrificing Saad and Meyer, but what about Cavanaugh and the other one?
ought not to be used Wheely neeley, LMAO! so saith Jeff seesions, the 'Baman.
Reid was acting in bad faith at the announcement of the so-called deal, using the opportunity of an open mike to bad-mouth Republicans, and the Administration, even as he was supposedly shaking hands with them.
Spiteful and vindictive -- he is simply a snake.
outside of the scope of the agreement.
That tells me nothing. Are they going to be voted for or against but the Filthy Fourteen?
Well, this looks like an easy one today, plenty of material to work with, and plenty of ire and inner seething to drive the use of said word LOL...
In the Senate, irresolute
Thinking only of Pork and Loot
Who could have ever once discerned
This the way the irresolute worm would turn
All that rhetoric to no good
It seems their heads were made of wood.
Led by none other than "Our Man? Arlene"
His irresoluteness plainly seen
No seer needed to make them learn
Then shouted "Compromise", "Adjourn"
What a Country ?!?!?!
No, some of us are just built like rhinocerwursts.
but you're a cute one.
Ah, but when was it first sold?
And allow me to add this: it appears Paris "I'm an enormous slut" Hilton has a hamburger commercial and is on top of the world. It seems that sort of behaviour pays off, vide Lewinsky and Pamela Anderson. This being the case, it is beyond my ability to comprehend why the Whyisa isn't Queen of Entertainment for the whole U. S. of A. Patently there is some manner of dreadful discrimination against Texans going on amongst the turkeys who decide these things, or else they're just irresolute, and Whysa, I'd just like to say that considering your relentless efforts, it's a crying shame.
An oldish joke:
A beautiful young redheaded woman goes into the doctor's office and says that her body hurts wherever she touches it. "Impossible!" says the doctor. "Show me." The redhead takes her finger, pushes on the left side of her chest and screams, then she touches her elbow and screams in even more agony. She pushes her knee and screams; likewise she touches her ankle and screams. Everywhere she touches makes her scream. The doctor says, "You're not really a redhead, are you?" "Well, no" she says, "I'm actually a blonde." "I thought so," the doctor says. "Your finger is broken."
Yes, for those late night moments when he closes his eyes, and imagines he's Cindy McCain.
