Anyone talked to Madam du Farge lately? I wonder how she's coming along with that scarf.
And you've contributed your share:-)
Hey, it's Friday night here. Time for a few laughs, a few guffaws at the opposition, who certainly took their swipes at us in the past eight years.
There' room for all perspectives on FR, have you seen the Canteen or the chat rooms, the Hobbit Hole ?
Cheers my FRiend!
Now you're getting it!
That's the spirit !
While many politicians stretch the truth from time to time, some are clearly worse than others.
The Bush twins never used the bully pulpit to berate Americans by telling what they should be doing with their lives, while they lived another way, behind their family.
Finally, I don't consider you to be "evil incarnate," nor do I expect you to succumb to any peer pressure, but I would appreciate if you remained consistent in your posts. You started off claiming Freepers were jealous and envious because of Mrs. Obama's shoes; I pointed out that it wasn't the shoes...that it was the hypocrisy. Then, you switched to your "all politicians are evil" rant. Sorry, but you lose credibility in my book, for what it's worth.
Why should I remain consistent on such an inane/stupid topic?
I've made it very clear that I regard this whole thing as a stupid waste of time. I refuse to take it seriously at all. I don't care which shoes the First Lady wears. I just don't see it as an issue worth all the bother.
But it is really fun to try to wind people up when you see that they're all worked up over something. I like poking at people. I mean, for me, this was good fun. It was good for a laugh.
Hypocrisy is a dime a dozen. I never met anyone who wasn't a hypocrite at some point or another- including myself. It is so common it is like the air we breathe.
I am not seeking credibility. What you or anyone else here thinks of me is irrelevent to me. Well, ok, maybe not irrelevent- but pretty darn close.
To me, this was merely an exercise in sh1t-stirring. Nothing more. It's just amusing to see people get worked up over the shoes.
