till we vote him out not to
The agon of the Republican Primary Season has been pure agony.
Elizabeth Warren’s own agon
Shows a woman conflicted, who’s way gone
Got her in Harvard Law
But ‘twas false, now her pale face has egg on
Not this **** agon.
Outstanding! One of your best.
Thanks very much.
I’m a already agon.
And I’m feeeeeling strong
I will sing this victory song
Whoo hoo hoo, whoo hoo hoo
A++ I keep focused: ABO.
Fauxcohauntus just keeps on giving. Did you check out Amazon’s book reviews for Pow Wow Chow. Hysterical. DH even sat laughing while I read them to him.
Oh, yeah. A++
Hmm, let me count...dog war, war on women, Bain v public equity, high scool prankster v high school pothead....yeah, there will be a whole lot more in the next 159 days. A+++
Hmm, not much of a homework assignment from my star student. A++
Obviously, I have missed some pop culture reference.
After electing a Muslim president, it’s a little late. A++
Just remember this, my girl, when you look up in the sky
You can see the stars and still not see the light
Aww shucks ma'am.
I actually watched those reruns. A++
All I know is that Cruz is the TEA Party fav. When is the runoff? A+++ Excellent homework.
It’s looking like the agon in the Walker Recall story will have a happy ending.
Runoff is July 31
i had a “conversation” of sorts with a liberal in my ofc today. i was minding my own business talking to my paralegal (who happens to be black) about Obama, and asking what her friends were thinking. she says she doesn’t think he will be re-elected, that her friends are all over the lot about him. well the white jewish liberal had to poke her nose in, and she is to the left of Obama, thinks he is a hypocrite, really can’t stand him, thinks he is Bush lite. she got off of obama to politics in general, which was not productive. i would have preferred to hear her rag on Obams some more. He annoys her. she said she is depressed watching the news, and that she really can’t talk politics with people bc it upsets her too much. this is someone from the left. so it was interesting.
Finally a consistent liberal. Most seem pretty groovy with domestic spying and indefident detention and undeclared wars as long as they aren't being done by a Republican.

she thinks she is a dying breed, classic liberal. loves FDR, thinks we need to TAKE CARE OF the poo-er. my head wants to explode talking to people like that, though i was gratified that she sees him as arrogant, and a narcissist.
If you were questioning someone else about how their family and friends view Obama, how is this “minding your own business”? ;-)
i didn’t bring up the subject, the paralegal did, and this other person left her ofc to come across the hall and engage in the conversation, uninvited.
On the upside our State elections yesterday got great results here - we got the Sheriff we wanted in our County and Cruz will be in a run off with dewhurst for the senate seat previously held by Kay Bailey Hutchison this summer. Mostly everything else was uncontested but we were very interested in the Sheriff's race here!
The love of my life, Allen West certainly was the victor in the agon with the troll questioning him about his aggressive interrogation of an enemy combatant. Loved the tweet, tioga.
Four lines to that story and we still don’t know if she’s hot. Jeez.
Which one, paralegal or buttinski?
I was really asking about the nosy broad, but now that you mention it I’ll take info on any babes in the mix there.
We need more Agon!
I have a running war with a neighbor who thinks he's an independent, but who is actually a liberal. He says that we agree on a lot of subjects, but that he is more compassionate toward the poor. You have to give the left credit--after decades of repeating that Big Lie, it has become a huge talking point for them. Too bad it's totally false.
that was DELISH!
i said, of course we have to take care of each other, as a community, as a family, as CHURCHES and other CHARITIES, it’s not the function of a GOVERNMENT to do so. She rolled her eyes at me.
and no HD, nothing remotely hot. you should know better than to think it’s even possible for a lib woman to BE hot. She’s older than i am, and not as well preserved. And, my paralegal is a doll, but 60+
You got an eye roll - nice. Basically saying “I hate what you’re telling me but have nothing to say to defend my position.”
