That susurrus echoing Clinton's campaign slogan comes from the Romney campaign. It will move through the nation like lightening before fall. It's the economy, and we are not stupid!

The susurrus of the Slow Jam News was a morning emetic (thx, xs) for me. Can’t believe I haven’t seen a thread on it yet.

Brains and style of a dull brontosaurus
Wines and dines like the Greek, Epicurus
A cacophony of sound
Says, “You won’t be around”
“Bye, Barack” is a roar, no susurrus

Well, I voted yesterday, mostly to no avail. My RINO congressman Tim Murphy won against a real conservative contender. Murphy runs these ads every 2 years bragging about how conservative he is, and then votes for labor union stuff like card check and bailing out union pensions.

In the 5 way race for the US Senate nod, my guy din’t win, but more importantly the “anointed” candidate didn’t either. The state party actually endorsed a guy who voted for Obama in the 2008 dem primary before supposedly “seeing the light.”

Sorry. That’s poor judgment and a lifetime DQ for getting my vote.

And in the battle royale of the newly merged Democrats, Crist upset Altmire.

Was registered as a Democrat and voted for Obama in spring 2008. Now, in 2012 wants to be the GOP nominee to take on Casey for the US Senate. And the state party leaders say “yeah, that’s our guy.”

The press coverage of Fast and Furious has been little more than a susurrus page shuffle, appalling in comparison to the excessive volume of the pain created in the lifes of those impacted.

Awakened from his sleep by a susurrus, he searched futilely for its source.

Susurrus

When pulled over by the police and asked to recite all 29 or 30 letters of the alphabet do not just keep saying the same 3 letters over and over like this......susurrus....cause it sounds like, “Sue, sue, (har, har) us!” and kindly Mr. Policeman may think you’re calling hogs (not good) or you’re one of those shiny pants lawyers (very, very not good) and he sets his tazer on the “screwdriver in the back of the t.v.” setting.

Maybe best we forget this “sewerus”.

with Newt with one foot out the door, what will happen to FR w/o a candidate to elevate? Will it be Virgil Goode, obscure former VA state senator, current presidential candidate of the Constitution Party?

They caught Malcom’s brother, the one who shot his partner and stole $2.4 million from an armored car.

The idiot was flopping in some house in Florida in a drug neighborhood. Flapped his gums to much and someone looked up the Pgh police and turned him in.

He obviously wasn’t very bright. I’d have been in Mexico having senioritas feeding me margaritas.

Lovely here, too-puffy clouds, breezy and 68...

It’s serious campaign time now
Obama is out there painting
Rosy pictures for student loans-
Maybe next they will be fainting

On questions of the economy
He doesn’t have a proper word-
The susurrus of gentle breeze
Is all that can be heard

That is because most of us
Who have a working brain
Know there is no more money-
Thinking otherwise is insane
