We heard a lot of peremptory charges from pres’ent Obama last night, and Candy Crowley made sure that soon-to-be President Romney did not have a chance to answer.
The buck stops: her.
Anybody who doesn't believe there is media bias should have been disabused of that notion last night. Besides saving Obama from his tortured timeline on Benghazi, the very questions that were chosen came right out of Axelrod's notebook.
The worst was the "What are you going to do to correct the inequality of women earning 72% as much as men for doing the same work?" We had a lesson on "begging the question" a while back. That was a perfect example.
Very perceptive. I had to think about how Mitt had inoculated himself against that attack.
Roscoe drank a pint jar of Nofavors Triple Rectified Headbust Spirits with the greasy cracklin’s and his inards went from peremptory to complete emptory as he leaned on the hood of the slum limo.
Pretty funny. Does that drink come in a 40 oz. size?
Every time I serve jury duty, the defense mounts a peremptory challenge against me.
I think he may have seen my bumper stickers.
40 oz.? You planning on poisoning a horse or embalming someone?
The first time I heard the word, it was in that forum. I have also been chased from the jury by a peremptory challenge. When the facts don’t favor them, lawyers don’t want anyone with an I.Q. above 80 passing judgment.
(See “The State of California vs. Orenthal James Simpson.”)
We Have Capital Punishment in FL, and as soon as the defense reads MY profile, I am OUT! LOL.
Embalming a horse.
Candy “Creepy” Crowley deferred peremperortorily to her Liege all throughout last night’s “debate”...
And, despite Candy’s ministrations (not to be confused with minestrone,) it has become quite obvious that the per-emperor has no clothes.
I was the first one on that thread to comment on the ludicrous satement that cell phones are a Constitutional right.
I once bet on an embalmed horse. I’m still waiting on him to find the finish line.
