Smooth and oily? Obama himself is a demulcent. But soothe me, he does not. (yoda-speak: off)
BTW, the camel denies eating your homework.
Hey, no fair! Soothing is my bailiwick.
ha! that sounds like a grating whine to me, not demulcent at all.
In the definition, there is a great word. (continuing the Yoda speak meme)
store this one for a later “word of the day”
DemulcentDave? more alliteration!
But it doesn’t have the panache that “soothing” does.
The other Jets decided to engage the Penguins in a shootout last night. That rarely ends well. One might say they got thrashed.
I’m sick and tired of Republican contenders who are trying to effect a demulcent view of how well things will be if ‘he’ is elected. It’s not going to be that fantastic, because like cod liver oil, the medicine to repair the damage this Jackal has reaped upon this nation will be harsh, and filled with protest. And that’s if t’he’ really is trying to repair the damage. Dammit, stop playing games and speak the plain frikkin’ truth!!!
A+++ hope that rant served as a demulcent. what goads me even worse is the DC insiders who keep telling me Mitt is the man. gag me.
Oh mama, I know this one. Da mule cent is yesterday's dollar.....Mule, Dems, Inflation, Cent, Dollar...Right. But it's better than:
“A soothing, usually mucilaginous or oily substance, such as glycerin or lanolin, used especially to relieve pain in inflamed or irritated mucous membrane”.
This just conjures up visions of a brass device on the floor at the end of the bar and one of the Coffin brothers leaning over it. Whew...eeeeeee! Now that's demulcent!
Demulcent is the pleasing olfactory sensations released into the shopping center.
The Jets are nasty, glad you beat them. we play them again on Friday at home.
Haven’t paid much attention to them. I sometimes still forget momentarily what they’re doing in the East conference standings.
I keep hoping this entire campaign season has been crafted by behind the scenes minds who threw romney out there to work up our anxiety and throw the liberals off their game fighting the weaknesses of romney. Then, at our convention, someone wonderful will be put up before us and having not spent a dime on campaigning, and not having been in the dirt fighting against other republicans, will emerge ready to kick azz and take names! (hey I can dream can’t I?)
You might want to check for a gas leak. ;-)
Well i am no longer hot for a brokered convention, since i am afraid that AUGUST is far too late to get sufficient $ and organization infrastructure in place etc and get moving on a campaign against the Antichrist who has more $ than God to spend on campaigning. I know no one wants to hear it, but it is going to be Romney, let’s just *ing get going and make sure he wins because the alternative is Venezuela.
I think I prefer a gas induced dream state to reality right now....the headache of reality is worse.
All you say is good, but even better: Obama is blowing through money right now. He’s way behind on even matching the funds he had in 2008.
Oh, I haven’t gotten about to ranting yet...
A President Romney will need to be emboldened by a GOP Congress.
that is good to hear, but i will never count out the Antichrist, because he has a mephitic backer....
Chuck Krauthammer agrees with me that he has to pick Rubio and that Rubio will draw in lots of different constituencies. Whyisa i know you are concerned that the diehards won’t ever pull the lever for Romney, but if we can draw the Hispanics to the ticket by adding Rubio, it may be enough. Also, Rubio should put FL def in the R column. He suggested Portman as another alternative, but def was high on Rubio. and said that regardless of Rubio saying NO now, that he won’t say no, no one says no, when the call is actually made and everything is on the line.
Remain in denial, it appears.
Daughter brings home a flyer yesterday. The school is having some sort of contest to promote eating of fruits and veggies.
Winning classroom gets a pizza party.
I think Rubio’s book indicates he’s open to the VP slot. Did you notice it says “American Son” on the cover. Yea, he’s ready.
Ready up the birthers :)
Tebow is a Jet.
Mark Sanchez will continue doing what he does best, date young women.
I have worked up some enthusiasm of late for Santorum, even tweeted once in his defense and surprised myself. I know Romney will end up with it, but denial has nothing to do with it....it’s more like an act of resignation to defer finally to Romney. I am sure I could come around, but I don’t want to. I do think he will rake in the Dem votes and help us win, but that is the very reason I don’t like Romney.
he, he.......Tebow to the Jets. LOVE it. I am a Jets fan since the Superbowl. What happened to their last quarterback?
He may not be much for believing in global warming, but he sure hit this one out of the park.
Almost makes me wonder if the questioner was a plant.
LMAO.....I don’t consider pizza a 1st choice healthy meal. What kid is gonna love a pizza with veggies on it?
They signed Sanchez to a contract extension earlier. so bringing in another high profile QB has got to make him feel good.
I love this new version of Mozzilla, I just have to highligt a word and the definition appears on my screen. I like that word.
Think what theO will blow through when we have a candidate concentrating on him. Wowser, will the sparks be flying from hell then.
I know women who go nuts spending just from the scent of new clothing. True. A++
You’ve got your game on. LOL A+++
We had a late call, then I hung at the station (our village polling spot) to see who our new mayor was. Happy to say I got my pick. So nice of no one in class to notice the teacher took a 4 hour nap today. I think I got too much sleep now.
Will they be trading Sanchez or will one of them sit the bench? Weird.
I am hearing on my FB account that the Jets training camp is in Cortland, near enough to me. Everyone is planning a road trip this summer already.
Tebow will be the backup. Remember, for all the hype, he was just the rookie QB of an 8-8 team.
With Sanchez the reigning Superbowl champion, that makes sense. Still, the draw locally will be Tebow. He has some star power despite that.
What was the difference between the Rebuild Oswego and the Citizens parties? And congrats on your guy winning!
The other NY team won the SB.
In the big picture the Rebuild party wanted to rebuild after the flood, the Citizen one wanted to abolish the village entirely.
