Bringing Chappaquiddick - are they really THAT stupid?

I can go with:
Bush or the Republicans drove the car into a ditch.
Obama has a shovel and digs the ditch deeper and tells us all he is working hard at getting the car out, all the while blowing smoke up our arses’.

No. It was the ‘08 class of the Dem clown congress that drove the car into the ditch. Things were pretty good until they came into power. Bush, unfortunately, didn’t call the tow truck to get the car out of the ditch.

I know I heard it, but I’ve had one of those mornings and I can’t be sure. Like you said, it was a mind-numbing stupid thing to say, but the idiot surely didn’t realize the implication. LOL.

Misquoted: Chris really said “Why would you hand the keys to the car back to the same guy who drank and drove, and whose policies drove the economy into the river and then walked away as the car sunk, leaving his kinda-hot chick in buckled in the front seat to drown............?”

“......and imagine if her name was Mary Jo Kopechne.......?”

“......and if his name was Ted Kennedy.......?”

“......y'see.......?”

Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your mouth,
Blowing down the backroads headin' south.
Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth,
You're an idiot, babe.
It's a wonder that you still know how to breathe.

Almost as good an exchange as would be:

Harry: "we'll cross that bridge when we come to it"

~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you, sweet Jesus, thank you, dear Lord ...!

I think this is another blessing and gift.

Our 'Angel in the Whirlwind' is confounding and confusing our enemies.

Van Hollen thought he'd be so cool .. being snarky and snide, with the sole purpose of demeaning Scott Brown and linking him to the typical attack by the Dems of Pres. Bush .. but instead, look at the words that came tumbling out of his mouth, uncontrollably .........

May our Lord and our Angels continue to confound and neutralize our enemies. I choose destruction, and I'll settle for confusing, confounding and marginalizing them as wicked screwups.

God bless and protect America.

When you stop to think about the probability that such a string of events could occur to hand the Senate seat to a Republican in a place like Massachusetts, it is difficult for me NOT to consider that maybe God had a hand in all this. . . one of those “couldn’t have happened without Him” scenarios. A truly breath taking set of circumstances and events . . . victory delivered out of a hopeless situation. Let’s hope it turns out as we wish.
