I had to giggle, first at Flat Screens for the Needy. Here, please.

But then when he talked about the napkin on the screen. I actually folded paper and taped it down the two or so inches of screen on the right of my monitor at home. First, because I was sick of looking at the stupid Jooler (jeweler, he can't say his own profession) with his big belly, bald head, and stupid grin. then it was to cover up the bright pink flashing advertisement (I don't even remember what it's advertising) that has a high probability of throwing someone into an epileptic fit.

This is all on pogo. I just want to whomp some words, you know?

It's useful to remember that they are competing with each other to appeal to their conservative base, because the contest now is to get their base to select them for the general election. In the general election, they will change their tune and suddenly be all butterflies and rainbows as they try to get moderates to vote for them. It's rather schizophrenic, but that's the way our system is.

Yes, and it's a relief to Democrats to see it happening to the other party for a change.
Dem's have torn one another up for years while the Repubs watched with glee.

Truth in the cliche: What goes around, comes around.
... except when a squirrel is involved.

It looks like the cartoon is dated 2000, which actually is even funnier. As you know, two-term Clinton had to go (sad, sad day) and it was between G-dub and Gore. Is that the date on the top? My screen is small.

Florida's election process, from hanging chads to recounts, was the stuff great jokes were made of.

It's pertinent as hell this year too...but I think that was drawn for the 2000 election.

(I just shuddered just now. GAWD those eight years.)

Oh, gotcha.

Well I've enlightened those who didn't know it was 12 years old and thought it was a 'new word' for 'this year.'

I think it is appropriate for this year, as well.
