(Definition#3) We could use an assize or at least a special prosecutor to punish those who stole the 2012 election by using the I.R.S. to effectively silence opponents of the Regime.

“miscreants”?

You rang?

My “assize” is invariant, no matter what I wear.

Either these pants are assize too small, or that butt is assize too big.

Apparently a diet rich in fruits and vegetables belongs to the same “do as I say, not as I do” family as Obamacare.

With each passing day, Obamacare shows that it is the gift that keeps on giving, to a republican party that doesn’t know what to do with said gift.

Actually, I’m surprised that Michelle is getting all the attention. I figured that Hillary would be good for at least 50%. (Just my half-assed estimate.)

The best line I saw (on Twitter) was that people should be offended by “Washington Redskins” because it contains the word “Washington.”

Rather than the topic of the article, I was referring to the convoluted description of Buckley in court (about the 4th paragraph).

Words are magical things, routinely defying the sort of logic-chopping on display in Costas' tirade. Their euphony can be a siren calling us to dangerous shores. Logophillic pundit William Safire, an unreconstructed paronomasiac, could be so seduced by clever puns, he often crashed whole columns into them. My former boss, William F. Buckley, was often in the dock on charges of aggravated sesquipedalianism, to which he always pleaded nolo contendere, informing the court of public opinion: "I am Lapidary But Not Eristic When I Use Big Words."

They should take the Marxixt Maggot in the White House directly to the nearest Assize, try him summarily for Treason, and put him in the stocks. There's one handy directly in front of the Old Courthouse in Leesburg, VA.
