It’s the latter IMO, that jaunty swagger up and down the steps of AF1 drives xshub insane.

Like well-trained lapdogs, the democrat news media have truly drunk the robot-a-koolaid from Obama’s propaganda machine.

All the while cursing the repubbies who follow a well-worn path into “conventional wisdom” stupidity.

I saw Rudy on Fox & Friends this AM. He was ON FIRE over Marc Rich and the Clinton pardon and Holder’s involvement thereof and Obama’s incompetance. I love Rudy, but opposed him for President because of his messy personal life. I’m re-thinking my position. He would have been a MUCH BETTER candidate and president than McCain, Romney, Hillary, or Obama. Unfortunately, Rudy’s time has probably passed. We are the losers.

You keep giving us these hard words. Why can’t we have something like Mississippi, where a guy stuttered while explaining the coffee stains on his shirt front. He just missed a sippi.

Yes, she is. She just tweeted a “thanks for helping to prepare me” to her MSNBC colleagues.

Interesting review of Zimmerman trial. It seems the state witnesses made some points for the defense.

I’m appalled by the supremes-making sense yesterday, and essentially punting today...

I’m sure the rodomontade
By the homosexual lobby
Is about Jean and Anna
And David “marrying” Bobby

All they won are dollar benefits-
That made them feel “right”-
It doesn’t bring an invitation
To a neighbor’s party tonight

While folks accept in public
Things that leave us stunned
That is not true in private-
So “gay” may just mean “shunned”

I don’t think shaking your ass in other people’s faces is ever, ever a good idea, and that is exactly what the radical homosexuals have done-actions can have social consequences...

Well, even if you never use it, you might see it in print, as I did, and wonder what it meant.

I left off my estimate, turned on the TV, and the Zimmerman circus trial is on, and the girlfriend is being cross examined. First she sounded stoned, then she was rude, now she sounds like she doesn’t understand the questions-what the hell is she doing-is she even a real witness, or did the prosecution just throw her out there like a decoy?

Your rodomontade aside, if you talk like that you should know the meaning of the word. Not sure if any liberals know what it means, but they might use it on you. Nothing wrong with four syllable words. Man up.

I’m pretty sure that is what I heard-I didn’t expect she would be so-large-and she seems a bit mature to be dating a 17 year old guy, too.

You know it's a hard one when you get through five Google results pages before finding a hit that uses the word but is not primarily about the definition of the word. The first non-definitional hit I noticed was in the subtitle of a English technical consultant's blog.

That pathetic excuse of a witness was covered up by the media because she was such a hot mess. They knew not to interview her and let the world hear her.
