Party like it’s FRiday! It IS! Homework on my desk.
Obama is sneaky, *insidious
His policies lean toward invidious
We realize the danger
Of the fake hope and changer
And know that the man is **perfidious
*Proceeding in a gradual, subtle way, but with harmful effects: “the insidious effects of stress”.
** Of, relating to, or marked by perfidy; treacherous. See Synonyms at faithless.
But Rush’s invidious use of invective took the focus off of her invidious message and put the spotlight on her (activist) self. As I said in another thread....Pelosi gave her a microphone, Rush made her a star......
(stolen from the promo of 1987’s “can’t buy me love”, starring patrick dempsey as the geek.......”dating her made him popular, breaking up with her made him a star........”)
ShePac fights back....the ad is great.
A+++ almost forgot.
Very punctilious! A+++
Good ad, but didn’t you know that only conservatives are misogynists?
Here I thought you were all hung over from celebrating SU’s win yesterday.
Excellent depiction of the double standard.
Obama’s invidious attacks on the Catholic Church will backfire.
I’m guessing Rich Pilon and Jeff Norton never thought they’d be immortalized in statue form.
huh! I was on duty last night and didn’t even realize they played. Lost track of everything. COPDer. Hell of a way to die. He is still smoking AND working. Scary stuff.
A++ Let’s hope.
They play Cincinnati at 7 tonight in the semis.
Promissory notes incurred by excessively dumb people in movies not shown in theaters.
Isn’t it? I had never heard of ShePac before.
Cool, I am free to watch tonight. GOOO SU!
That is great - thanks for posting.
One of your best!
And what is a sleep train anyway? I don’t think of trains as a relaxing thing, I think of noisy clickety-clacking.
Dumbest name since “Airbus.”
I watched some of the interviews. Mario has kevorka, bigtime.
Good point Dave - dumb name.
The back story to Sleep Train and Rush is that they were failing when a little known radio talk show host needed a new bed. A mutual friend sent Rush over and he bought a bed, suggested they advertise on his show. They did and history was made.....they make billions every year now. From failing to success beyond their dreams, and this is how they treated Rush. They jump on a faux blitz of Rush and expect him to forgive and forget. They made personally insulting comments when the did this. The relationship is OVER, with Rush and his fans.
Thank you. Last night I scrolled up and down the choices on my NookTablet and found nothing new to read. I will check it out today.
BTW, last year I read a book that came highly recommended...A Discovery of Witches. Yes, witch and vampires. The sequel comes out this summer. Warner Bros. bought the movie rights. It was surprisingly well written. I actually loved the book. Bought it for my daughter for her birthday.
That was great, i sent it to a bunch of people.
Wish I could see that ad on TV.
Excellent, as always — I was going to post something similar using “fastidious” (i.e. “clean & articulate”) but defer to the Master...
A challenge: Ladies, if you’ve fucked more than 10 men in your life, make a donation to Planned Parenthood. bit.ly/AiGTtz I did.

What a slutty tweet. The aftermath of theFluke?
Liberals supporting killing off their own.
That’s a bit homophobic, isn’t it?
Not to mention “hideous.”
Maybe “ladies” who %$%$ed 10 women want to kill babies, too?
which you totally are! ; )
He is pretty amazing, glad he got his due from the Burgh, and it is gratifying to hear him speak highly of it’s citizens. Did you watch James Neal NHL36? we love those shows at our house. it was enjoyable.
perhaps, baby killing is a rite of passage on the left. I pic them in the dead of night with a fetus on the altar, dancing and having an orgy.
skankwhore. yeah, i said it. go ahead pull my advertisers.
Never heard of it. Is that on NHL network? Neal finally started scoring some goals this season, though he’s been dry lately.
the woman across the street from me is the COOKIE DEPOT for GS. there are vans of wimmens out there loading up for their troops every weekend lately.
Are you thinking of planning a heist? ;-)
yeah it is on NHL network. The Whats up ya sieve girlies, my fave hockey bloggers, LUUUUV James Neal and so i am kept abreast of his exploits. MOST disturbing thing from the NHL36 episode on him? he’s obsessed with his hair, spends inordinate time styling it but.... HE ONLY WASHES IT ONCE PER WEEK. he said that. on national tv. once per week. Anyone who has lived with a hockey player would have to be appalled at that revelation. he plays HOCKEY, he practices DAILY, hockey boys sweat and good lord THEY STINK TO HIGH HEAVEN.
...she's staking them out now....
