It was actually cool enough to drive in this morning with the windows down. Rainy, of course.

Unril they decide on a name, though youd have rhought that would have been figured out well in advance.

Methinks they are milking it.

I'm hoping that enough conservatives were in a swivet to tell Bret Baer that leftwing lesbian shill Sally Kohn should NEVER again be on the panel. i was outraged and she was AWFUL! the furthest left person he has ever had on there and it better be a one time only thing! it seemed to me that Charles was exercised at having to refute every one of her leftwing talking points. I can't recall the name of the black WSJ reporter that was on, and i think he was on with Paul Gigot over the weekend. he is FANTASTIC, i love him.

xshub’s IT guy and his wife were unable to agree on a name and the baby boy was two days in the hospital sans name. Literally as they were about to leave the hospital they settled on his name so it would be put on the birth certificate. the name— Maverick. They also had 9 mo to decide, i don’t think the royals are milking it.

She has been a fox contributor for some time, but never on the panel. if there’s enough pushback, hopefully Bret won’t ask her back. Jonah and others on twitter were equally appalled.

That would be the wise rhing to do. Especially since they change the name lwhen they ascend the throne.

Lineage counts for much among the Royals, and their popularity resides in publicity.

Jay Carney speaks carefully, no swivet
Deflecting each question with a pivot
One day he will die
And when St. Peter asks why
He’ll say, “My life is a lie, so I just live it”

Though we had a couple at the hospital when #2 was born, that couldnt decide. I just find it a tad kooky.

The Senate, in a swivet wants to waste our money on foreign entaglements.

When will they learn to stay out of the civil wars of others?

That’’s his name until he’s given a formal name. He could be known as Baby Cambridge for as long as 2 weeks. Then he’ll get (probably) 4 first names. Remember when diana got the order of Charles’ 4 names wrong during the wedding vows? Whe probably could have gotten an annulment, instead of a divorce for that blunder. They all have 4 names.

I couldn't agree with you more. I was literally screaming at the tv set. Detroit is a perfect, scientific experiment of what liberal policies do to a city. Blaming republican policies on its demise is like blaming the Mets' decline on George Steinbrenner.

it is every bit like being through the looking glass with Alice when trying to discuss anything with those people, it makes you feel like you are insane. their concept of reality is totally different. i think Charles may have a stutter, and last night, i felt like he was having to fight it more than usual because of his reaction to her insane arguments.

she was sooo thrilled to be on the panel and was a bit too loud and overeager, even apart from being over the moon and up obama’s butt on policy issues.

I'm pretty sure his stutter is the result of his paralysis.

she is a big woman isn’t she? But seriously - a man’s suit? Could she be more of a stereotype?

he controls it admirably. but when he’s agitated i think it becomes more of an effort. when you have a leftist puppet next to you, mouthing absurdities, i am sure it’s a great source of agitation!

So, if you worry about running out of deodorant while standing in line waiting on the TSA/HSA/DOD/DOE/FBI/ATF/DOE/HUD and everybody else on the federal payroll to allow you to re-enter the country, can you be convicted of conspiracy to swivet in pubic?

It was so interesting talking to his parents. xshub was talking to Karim’s father about the situation in Egypt. They despise Obama.

Did you see the pic i retweeted to you, of the guy at the Nats-Bucs game with LETS GO BUCS on his chest? one of my colleagues [the one from Pgh] said the guy was 5 rows behind him. Gotta love a pittsburgher. if i didn’t despise baseball, i would really have liked to see the Pierogie race.

That wasn’t a furrie. That was a stripper/adult film actress.

She was at the Pirate game, dancing in the aisles with the unicorn head on. It must have been some dance, for they decided to eject her.

But not before Officer Friendly (as yet un-named) decided to pose with her and the head.

And, yes, they meet here every year and the local media play it up with some stories. Not mentioning the entire thing is an excuse for orgies.

I don’t know if Bronies really exist, but if they do, they certainly are not having sex with each other. I hope.
