Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Tomorrow night’s debate will pit the magniloquent, gaffe-prone Joe Biden, against the intelligent, fact-laden Paul Ryan.

To prevent further grade inflation, I have re-scaled the curve. The highest grade will be A+++.

No pushing at the door please!

Your link goes to a bunch of hose manure and not Steve Wynn. Not that horse manure is inappropriate for the magniloquent One.

Don't worry--the handwriting is on the wall for the all-time abuser of executive power.

Steve Wynn is legally blind, but he can still see right through Obama.

Obama’s speeches to his die-hard followers about his grandiose ObamaCare plan is a magniloquent malignancy on the public at best.

Wow--37 minutes after my ping, you were still able to pick up a bronze medal! Too bad Obama can't let the Teleprompter debate Mitt.

Wasn’t Magniloquent the name of that big, boastful dragon in one of the early Disney movies?

Benign and eloquent trumps malignant and magniloquent.

The magniloquent mystery monkey shakes his tree demanding to be fed. He has become a malignant nuisance when he attacked an elderly woman recently. Despite his fans and his facebook page, they are actively hunting him to relocate him. Tampa Bay's Menace.

Be wary of those with whom you cannot reason. Like big-ass monkeys. And liberals.

Did you hear that some OWS Types were whining about the fact that TOTUS was not allowed to debate Romney?
