Here is the ghostly ballroom where Dick Lugar's six-term Senate career is doing a sad, invisible waltz of doom. NBC is calling the Indiana GOP Senate primary for teabagger Dick Mourdock, thereby "putting the seat in play for Democrats in the fall," because Mourdock is some sort of terrible nut
Anybody know why the Libertardians don&#039;t try to peddle their wares overseas, where third (and fourth, and fifth) parties are sort of normal and actually take part in the government?
Keeps the &quot;con&quot; in conservative, at any rate.
Are you suggesting that he wouldn&#039;t have the unbridled power, unquestioning respect, and total control that Boner exerts over the highly disciplined GOPtard baggers in the House?
Mourdock on Congress: &quot;&ldquo;I think there needs to be more partisanship.&quot;
How fucking more partisan can it get than 100% obstructionist, 100% of the time?
Mostly stating a fact, but also reminding everyone who could become <a href="http:\/\/en.wikipedia.org\/wiki\/List_of_Presidents_pro_tempore_of_the_United_States_Senate" target="_blank">3rd in line for the presidency</a>....not that we could probably ever do worse than Ted Stevens or Strom Thurmond.
(I&#039;m of the opinion that the current line of succession should be repealed, because including members of the legislative branch violates separation of powers, but that&#039;s a debate for another time.)
Mitt probably thinks that song is about him.
Well, in that case: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wik..." target="_blank">" rel="nofollow noopener" title="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Senate_seniorit...">http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Tonight two beautiful lesbians are making sweet love in Charleston after eating oysters and grits with shrimp. And the North Carolina voters didn&#039;t make one bit of difference in their relationship.
Except both of these gorgeous women have PHd.&#039;s in Biology who are developing a genome for curing diabetes will leave. A really cool Research Triangle medical firm will collapse because these scientists they courted realized that NC is full of stupid voters who care more about the religion than logic. Because that&#039;s what the minister told them.
Meanwhile NC Farmer Brown who grows Cotton and Tobacco who has received numerous FDA subsidies believes he is the king because he doesn&#039;t want fags in the Tarheel state.
The venture capitalists will freak when they learn the smart, beautiful couple moves to Vermont or some other safe, sane state and begin their own enterprise and live happily every after. And pay taxes.
Stupid fuckwits. I hope NC feels safer.
mr fuflans is at bulls game tonight. lugar should have gone with him.
god bless america.
but only some parts of america.
The good people in North Carolina can sleep well tonight; their state joins almost 30 others in ensuring that same sex couples cannot be considered married. There will be less divorce, less adultery, happier and better children in the state. Spousal abuse, broken families, and sexual crimes will be more rare and God Himself will favor the state for their choice.
Dick dick dick dick dick dick dick!
How many dicks is that?
The ignorance of most people (or the effect of absorbing media via certain slanted outlets) has enabled state politicians to rail against sharia law, the encroachment of the United Nations, fear of losing the Second Amendment, indoctrination of school children, and the abolition of Christianity. What is already forbidden can be considered commonplace, what is ludicrous is believed prevalent.
The rise of the far right conservative control of media after the Goldwater loss in 1964 has led us to a Balkanization of truth and reality. I don&#039;t fear a new Civil War as much as I fear a long period of descent enabling the rich interests to force the rest of us back into a feudal state.
(I mentioned earlier I had a 12-pk of PBR.)
Or we could end up with another Evan Bayh. *vomit*
Assuming age is not an issue, I&#039;d be willing to bet Barry is already trying to get Lugar in as Secretary of State when Hillary Clinton leaves.
Assuming he wins his primary, Orrin Hatch becomes the next Republican to be President Pro Tempore of the Senate (also assuming they take control sometime in the next 6 years). Even though both Lugar and Hatch took office at the same time, Lugar outranked Hatch because Indiana had a larger population the year they took office.
