Lots of 'D' batteries.
Lots of vodka
Kirsten wouldn’t budge tonight on her “Rush wants Barry to fail” talking point until Rich set her straight. Wonder why they didn’t cover the fact that the UK press is buzzing about the Brown visit and Barry and Michelle’s tacky trinkets while the drive-bys remain silent.

Gibbs an Agnew? No way! Are there any good Agnew videos out there?

Confronted with the choice, the American people would choose the policeman's truncheon over the anarchist's bomb.
I apologize for lying to you. I promise I won't deceive you except in matters of this sort.
I didn't say I wouldn't go into ghetto areas. I've been in many of them and to some extent I would say this; if you've seen one city slum, you've seen them all.
In the United States today, we have more than our share of the nattering nabobs of negativism.
Some newspapers are fit only to line the bottom of bird cages.
The American people should be made aware of the trend toward monopolization of the great public information vehicles and the concentration of more and more power over public opinion in fewer and fewer hands.

You forgot one of Agnew’s most famous phrases:
Gibbs is like Scott McClellan, except not as smart.
This looks like a typical police lineup of hoods and con men.
As bad as Gibbs is, how would you like to explain this administration’s policies? Having to make the most corrupt incompetent gummit in history as the second coming?

I derive much pleasure from watching those reporters, whoc used to have lovely and sharp Dana Perino, now listen to bunches of nothing from the loathesome Gibbs.
Twinkle toes the ballerina and the three little gay pigs. All four want revenge against real men for the years of torment they suffered on the playground. They spent their entire adult lives with their noses planted squarely up the asses of men who were headed up the political ladder. Now that they are there they will go after every man who is not a limpwristed wimp like them.
