  As the election results were being announced, a bystander might have thought that I was suffering from coprolalia, so foul was my language.    

 

No pushing at the door please!

Get your homework in, miscreants. I’ve got an early afternoon flight out of DFW and will be unable to grade papers after 10 a.m. Central Time.

My objection to coprolalia and those consumed by it is that it seems to be a substitute for doing the work of acquiring an actual functional vocabulary; the very antithesis of what we’re trying to accomplish with this thread.

the sight of the Obams prompts coprolalia in me. A much worse case than the Clintoon prompted, which is pretty mindboggling.

Was glad to get this email this AM. xsbaby has already signed on to work for Cuccinelli, and we were going to support him anyway, as the more conservative candidate and a Gonzaga alum. Xsbaby has met him several times and made sure to mention to him that her brother was a fellow Gonzaga grad.

Look who’s all pop culture now. ;-)

Never watched it. Not my demographic.

iCarly just ran their last episode after 5 seasons. My daughter wasn’t too interested in it any more, but I tuned in.

my kids were of the appropriate age to watch, which is why i did. it was a nice show. disney went downhill after that era, IMO. xsgirls are worried that disney will crap up the sequel. hopefully they won’t. danielle fischel wrote on fb about how the show was very special to all of them who were on it, and they would do their best to keep the same spirit on this one. they’ve not cast the daughter yet, that will probably make or break the new show.

and while xsgirls loved Drake and Josh, they had outgrown it by the time icarly came along. icarly is also the nickname for John Carlson, washington Capital.

Coprolalia? Sounds like the answer to the question “Who is the dumbest Non-Comm in the Italian Army?”

I usually atribute my extreme bouts of coprolalia inspired by the current administration to Tourette Syndrome. I guess the GOP will start searching the Racial Pool to try to find a candidate to appeal to broader cross-sections of the electorate rather than looking for the best candidate to articulate a strong, conservative, limited-government message. Meanwhile, the teleprompter-reader in chief will get away with singing some BS Coal Oil Rap about how green energy subsidies are good for the economy. But hey, you can stand there and blow BS up the collective asses of the voters; as long as you are a Cool Liar, PA voters will continue to support you if you have the (D) behind your name. Given the election results, the determination of democrats to view obama's reelection as a mandate for socialism, and the GOP's propensity to Fail, crap looms ahead on almost every imaginable front.
