Chris Christie has panache, which he got long ago when ordering from IHOP when he misspelled “pancake.”

Hmm. And here I had always thought panache was the result of dropping a heavy skillet or saucepan on your foot.

And dropping one of those tiny breath mints on your foot could cause Tic Tac Toe.

Not yet. Waiting for the mercury to cross the Mason-Dixon Line, i.e., zero.

Yes, indeed. However, that latter problem can be cured quickly enough by ingesting some (wait for it)...tofu.

With Texas panache, abortion advocate and big talker, Wendy Williams, attacked her opponent and challenged him to “walk in her shoes”. He’s a paraplegic!

Unbelievable!

According to the table on the deck, I did the first 10 last night.

#1 son just did the rest without being told.

Wendy Davis (not "Williams") is the most honest democrat candidate since Elizabeth "Faux-cohantas" Warren.

DAVIS (Oooops!)

What scares me is that Faux-chahontas Warren now bears the title SENATOR and is being discussed as PRESIDENT.

Don’t take your eye off of Davis. She seems sneaky and bold.

Most libs are sneaky and bold. And liars. Davis' big claim to fame is her long filibuster in favor of (extremely) late-term abortions. Now she's running for governor of Texas, a state wherein that platform is not very popular.

I dunno. I lived in TX for 10 years and knew many women who were abortion supporters. Suprising women. I used to argue with them, but I never changed their minds. Of course, that was in the early 70s when the Roe v Waders were at their most militant.

JoeB, our VP, takes the cake with panache. Lest we forget his infamous "Stand up, Chuck!"......then, who could forget the big f***ing deal comment......but even before that remember when he said Obama was a "clean" black man? .........BUT even before that gaffe he said you cannot go to a 7/11 or a DD without an Indian accent.......butt the icing on the cake is JoeB at the Villages. Yes, his picture is next to the word pinache in the dictionary.

I hope little Andy Cuomo regrets the panache he showed when attacking conservatives this past week, but I doubt it since he is such a moron.

Not for nothing, but shouldn’t her asinine positions be the focus?

The rest, is just a distraction, that feeds into being able to deflect from them.

FWIW...If no women dyed their hair...there’d be no hairdressers...

Just a thought

are you ready to concede that we are pretty much doomed? there was a special election in VA YESTERDAY. YESTERDAY! and it wasn't entire counties, it was PARTs of counties, and people were confused about whether they were in the part that was involved in the election or not. And this helps tip the VA Senate to Dem control.

Since the detractors of Rick Perry called him “Governor Good Hair”, I think saying AbortionBarbie is a madeover woman is fair game. The reason this story is important is that her whole persona is “poor girl with a baby who made it through hard work and perserverance”, instead of 16 year old pregnant girl who got married and lived decently, then had an older man pay her way through school AND take care of her kids for 3 years. Every poor girl should have it so bad
