Me: Heartless, greedy right-wing oppressive type looking to make a buck.
You: Obama's election was Christmas/your first kiss/May Day all wrapped into one. You dutifully wore his button -- which you have yet to remove -- contributed money to his campaign from your non-profit job and chanted "yes we can" as if it were the 11th commandment. A strange void now exists in your life and -- like an old hippie looking to recapture the spirit of Woodstock -- you are undertaking a pilgramage to Washington for one last gulp of the Kool-Aid.
Along with my bedroom you will have access to the house's many amenities including cable television (not that you watch much TV) for viewing Keith Olberman's latest unhinged rants and CNN in high-def. Wireless internet means that the Huffington Post and DailyKos are only a click away on your MacBook. American flags and other patriotic paraphernalia in the room can be removed upon request.
The house is located in the diverse neighborhood of Adams Morgan with people of many different skin pigmentations that will allow you to revel in your tolerance. Rest assured, however, that this diversity does not extend to ideology and that you are sure to march lock-step with the prevailing sentiment ensuring that your most strongly held beliefs remain unchallenged.
Easily accessible subway and bus stops will help ensure a minimal carbon footprint while fair trade coffee is never more than a few steps away at any number of independently-owned establishments. Nearby non-chain bookstores similarly mean that tomes such as Mao's Little Red Book, Chomsky's latest masterpiece or additional copies of The Audacity of Hope can be easily purchased either for yourself or as early holiday shopping.
Rather than state a price I am requesting that you bid on this fabulous opportunity to ensure profit maximization on my part so that I can better weather the Bush Recession.
Hope the poster gets a fat deposit. You know how lefitsts are when leaving someone else's homes.
That’s the best!
Just saw a CNN poll that said 77% of Americans believe that 0 will improve the economy.
was there one for a “seat for sale?”
I’ve never used craigslist. I went there but didn’t see how to use a “buy” search, as I’d like to pick up a printer on the cheap myself. Any suggestions?
be warned. CL is wierdo city.
Ya beat me to it, IH. Craigslist isn’t always what it seems. A friend of mine is still trying to recover from a major ripoff from someone on that site that happened last May.
The posts are fun to read @ times, for sure, but buyer beware.
And of those 77%, another 77% believe he will put gas in their car and pay their rent.
I wonder how they will deal with their disappointment?
Not to worry, he's black, he's beautiful, he's "O."
Hey! ; - )
for your amusement, not to give you any ideas ... ;)
Nope. Don’t want sny “0” fans in our house.
i vote we just hunker down and weather the storm ;)
Ayep. I am really in a “hunker-down” mood.
No, I’m not. Close to Moline, IL.
Well, if you're ever in Sarasota...
Here, try this. If you move or need anything else, just FReepmail me. ;)
I'm sure the pickings are slimmer in the heartland...http://quadcities.craigslist.org/search/sys?query=printer&minAsk=min&maxAsk=max
I am not a mean person, but I hope we have a severe winter storm or something and everyone gets snowed/iced in and can't attend. Obama can then ask ALGore what happened to Global Warming? Or blame the Republicans - like he will do about everything else.
