Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Bambam could have called them “pickaninnies” and they wouldn’t have complained.
oh lordy, ceej! LOL!
politicians used to promise a chicken in every pot, Herm can promise a pizza in every pan!
Whenever he speaks to a Black audience, he sounds so much like Kingfish from “Amos ‘N Andy.”
I was in Grade school during the Ford Administration, not working for them.
Though This cute little number contains a big band version of the infamous quote.
Say it’s 4 AM and you’re high as a kite ... pizza delivers!
Funniest line was Baldwin as Perry “there are only two people I listen to; Jesus Christ and Rachel Maddow”
googled it yesterday to explain to xsteen what had happened. it’s pretty appalling and imagine today he’d have been SHOT for saying such a thing.
That was an ugly win last night - I never expected the colts to play your team so close - how many INTs did Rapelessburger throw?
it drives xshub absolutely insane when he tries to be a “brother” like that.
That's where they needed Gary Johnson in there to agree.
Only one INT. It was the getting mugged of the ball while being sacked that hurt.
Though the net “QB sack/fumble/return for TD” stat was a pleasant zero.
Appalling? Coarse maybe...but I thought he was describing the third level of Maslow’s hierarchy....
Hillary Clinton did a better ethnic accent than Obammy when she read that Harriet Tubbman poem or whatever she read during her campaign.
i thought it was appalling.
when she was TAHRED? yeah, that was also ridic!
I have a hard time looking at Big Ben - he looks so much like the ugly former husband of one of my best friends. She is an absolute knock out and he is just so fugly no one could ever figure out why she fell for him. As it turns out, he was exactly what I thought and left her for another woman.....and he will leave her when he gets bored.
Thanks .... actually, more so dumbfounded than inspired, that this melange of young, relatively untested players and a “journeyman” Quarterback could essentially pull off the same trick two weeks in a row...
(No love lost that it was New England, either ;)
Hey, he didn’t use the N word!
The only reason i even know the outcome of NFL games is bc my hockey peeps that i follow on twitter comment on it. Slava Malamud is a foreign correspondent for a Russian sports daily and he also contributes to the WaPo and he was the one tweeting about the Bills game yesterday.
No, I only remember James Watt's quite accurate description of gov't diversity.
right, but the rest of it was just ridic. i only remembered the loose shoes part so i was taken aback when i googled it and saw the rest.
don’t recall that and have only a vague recollection of James Watt being controversial.
Sorry, before my time. ;) I heard my grandparents talk about them though...
He described a panel of his as being properly diverse because it had “a black, a woman, two Jews and a cripple.”
It was then I learned that people don’t like people telling the truth too bluntly.
And they had talent.
Yes, and they had talent. But one must not mock the gods of affirmative action.
Taxcheat Timmy Geithner in charge of saving us? kill me now.
There is no one who can save us.
let’s have the crash and then we can get on with our lives.
it feels very much like those moments at the very top of the roller coaster prior to the plunge downward.
Either that or he was getting in touch with his inner Wright and Farakhan.
Smart alec age comments. I watched them on TV back in the 50’s as a first grader.
I spent last week surrounded by people your parents’ age and then some. I’ll bet they could have told me all about it.
Well, he said that Washington needed to get a sense of humor. Perhaps this is the beginning.
Doncha just love the FREEPERS for their melange of wit, knowledge, & humor?
we love when YOU show up to class, moochy! A+++ : )
