LOL!

When Clinton was elected in 1992 I delay-taped the Times Square midnight ball drop. The next day I kept running the tape backwards to make the ball go back up again and “1993” to go out. Sorta helped.

“Guacamolean Sotomayor” is pretty good, too.

;^)

She’s more suited as head housekeeper of the Regency Hyatt-—certainly an upgrade over the Rodeway Inn.

What an absolute travesty that low level Soto got appointed to the SCOTUS but the late Robert Bork was denied over a bunch of false garbage leftist lies from their liars. I’ll never forget what they did to a great and highly qualified conservative judge. RIP Judge Bork-—you will have a higher seat of Judgement in eternal Heaven.

The Rose Parade with homos “marrying” atop a wedding cake float, queen of disgusting Kathy Griffin co-hosting New Year's Eve coverage with homo Anderson Cooper, unqualified lesbian SCOTUS appointee dropping the ball in Times Square — Satan's minions foul and besmirch everything.

Sorry but the pronunciation that automatically comes to mind sounds too much like “sodomizer”.

I’ll never forget that pig Ted “lion of the senate” Kennedy accusing Bork of all kinds of nonsense. I forget his exact words, but it was the usual garbage about Bork wanting segregation, back-alley abortions, etc.

I’ll give Ted some credit, he managed to to keep his pants on and hide his drunkenness when he uttered that nonsense, though.

Good to know. I had planned to stay up long enough to watch it drop (11:00 where I live) but now I won’t bother. I do want to remember Mr. Mercat’s mother who passed away last January. By New Year’s Eve she was ill enough that she had to have someone with her 24/7. My sister in law drew the New Year’s Eve shift. She was sound asleep on the sofa in the next room when she heard a bell ringing wildly. She went in thinking Irene had fallen or worse and saw her sitting up in bed with a huge grin saying, “Happy New Year.” So Happy New Year Irene You are missed.

Nah, I thought President Hillary Clinton will nominate Barack Obama for Chief Justice - after "convincing" Roberts to retire...
