AdLib : Will do, thanks so much my friend! You get some rest too, need you just as much, pal! Have a great weekend!
bito : Night AdLib, kiss the wife and kid and get some rest, guy. we need you!
AdLib : Night Patsy! Night Bito! Night John Boy!
bito : G’night Ms. Patsy, Rest well
AdLib : Whoa, it’s 11 pm PST! Didn’t realize it had gotten so late! Seems like a good time to call it a night for this edition of Vox Populi. Thank you so much Bito and Patsy for all your wonderful contributions tonight!
AdLib : Bito – I started checking them out, The Media Consortium looks really good! Thanks!
PatsyT : I hope this new year brings many great things to all of our Planet friends everywhere.. I am going to have to say good night … All the Best
bito : Adlib, I sent you a link to this, might be a good add to the blogroll, «link» it is just the members list but clicking any one there gets you non-msm news.
AdLib : Agreed, I welcome the shots of anyone whose aiming at the ones trying to loot this nation of wealth and democracy.
AdLib : No kidding Patsy, the way folks minds are tuned and honed here, it’s pretty singular.
PatsyT : Ed and the rest will have so many BIG targets with the new House I think they will be very busy and they can be very good at picking apart some of the BS.
AdLib : Bito – I think you use all the tools available in building something worthwhile, even those not necessarily intended to be as useful as they can be. Opportunists, even like Arianna and HP and Ed, can help our goals so while I will honestly criticize them, I would not turn my nose up at getting any of them to help us move forward.
PatsyT : Beats crossword puzzles!
AdLib : Patsy – Agreed and I sure am spoiled by the brains we have here at the Planet, any out there lacking the integrity of the folks around here just pale in comparison.
bito : OK, AdLib, I guess I had a little faith and hope in him.
PatsyT : AdLib … We will just have to do most of this thinking for ourselves. It’s good for the brain.
AdLib : What I mean is that he is “outraged” right on cue, when the camera’s red light comes on and throws red meat to Progressives, very cynical stuff, all about him and his career. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t ever benefit Progs but he is all about Ed, not the Progressive movement.
PatsyT : Bito I am not against using him for a good cause .. he could be very effective
bito : I liked his town halls, and yes he is a opportunist, so take the opportunity! I don’t mind.
PatsyT : Yeah I know It is hard to come out of the cushy studio unless you Really mean it.
AdLib : Ed is an opportunist, he used to be a Repub you know. Just like another opportunist I know.
PatsyT : I would like it if Big Eddie did more town hall kinda things like out in the middle of the country.
bito : Before Ed Shultz was on MSNBC he would go on rants about libs getting together and buying radio stations. Now that he is making the big bucks to do so….. crickets. What dat, big eddy?
AdLib : Goldline News Network!
PatsyT : They gotta sell those survival kits somewhere
AdLib : From a business standpoint, is there really a need for ANOTHER RW slanted site?
bito : i think I just lost some brain cells
PatsyT : A joke really…
AdLib : And having to promote only RW stories, their lead is a slanted miniseries on the Kennedeys being canceled? Lame and of no interest to a broad audience, only the same likely suspects, extremists. They can’t grow like that…thank God.
PatsyT : Don’t look or wear protective gear if you go there and Oh Boy the comments… No Liberal anything anywhere!!
bito : No I avoid Glen Beck
bito : Cher mentioned it the other day about puff-ho’s CEO moving to it.
AdLib : It looks way amateurish!
PatsyT : Sorry Glen Becks version of Huff Poo «link»
bito : Help, Patsy. The Blaze?
AdLib : Blaze?
bito : I Know, Adlib, just hope we don’t scare her away. I like her comments.
PatsyT : Has anyone looked at the “Blaze” ?
AdLib : Jenuwin may be a bit shy but has a great sense of humor.
bito : Jenuwin, do you get a good laugh or do you just shake your head and wonder bout our sanity?
PatsyT : They get the double dose
AdLib : And the drag is, all the RW Evangelists get all the good crack for their vacations with RentBoys.
PatsyT : There is onlly so much good crack to go around…
PatsyT : He, who must be obeyed!
AdLib : Crawl, Google, on your knees when you come to The Planet!
PatsyT : Google will have ta git their own
bito : Be quiet, Ralph, google is crawling
PatsyT : I only play three girl mommy
AdLib : Patsy – It seems to me to be less “magic” than Three Card Monty, pander to the rubes’ greed and fear and the suckers will buy into your game. It seems SOOO obvious. WOuld you ever play 3 Card Monty?
PatsyT : Bito Yes you gotta stock up!
PatsyT : AdLib…Those corps have had too many conventions in Vegas studying the Magicians
bito : I need to write the SS Admin and ask for some more money so I can buy me some of that crack stuff. his golf tab in one club was over 8 times what I get. And he is getting paid by taxpayers money. Who is the sponger???
AdLib : The idea is, to hide the truth that corps and the wealthy have robbed the nation of so many jobs and fair pay, they ARE doing the Nazi thing of blaming the “other”, blacks and latinos, for robbing “you” of your job and being in the middle class. It is insidious and racist, all to shift the focus and blame from the real culprits.
PatsyT : Well I said ‘little’
AdLib : It is code for racism.
bito : Severe, Patsy, but you may be right.
AdLib : “Won’t compete” means the lazy, shiftless minorities who just want their welfare checks and Unemployment Insurance (which is all the same) so they can smoke their crack and rob and scare white people.
PatsyT : Yes AdLib and those Koch Boys have so many homes they always need help.
bito : Thanks Adlib.
PatsyT : Who judges who can’t COMPETE and who won’t? sounds a little Nazi to me
AdLib : Khirad – No, you see, the reason people are uneployed is that they are lazy and don’t want to compete for jobs picking strawberries and cleaning the homes of the Koch Brothers. Didn’t you know?
bito : But do we have a responsibility to help those who won’t compete? What, who is he speaking of?
Khirad : Don’t tell me: he was a jock, right? And he’s talking about the losers and dweebs.
PatsyT : Thats it AdLib
bito : Night Ms. k’es. Keep warm and don’t start any more Toledo wars.
AdLib : bito – “Well, clearly, I believe in the safety net. You know, we live in a competitive society. We live in a capitalist society. For those who can compete and do well, fine. Some Americans can’t compete. I think we have a responsibility as a people to help those who can’t compete. But do we have a responsibility to help those who won’t compete? I would have serious doubts about that. “
PatsyT : Nighty Night Kes… have a clown free weekend
bito : What was his line about the social safety net the other night? it was weird. Help me. something about those that can’t and those that won’t.
AdLib : Night Kes, have a great weekend!
Khirad : Night kes
kesmarn : Good night, all!
kesmarn : And on that happy note, dear friends, I’m afraid I’ll have to head stealthily for the back door. It’s after 1 a.m here in Boehner-Land and that’s when the scary clowns come out!
PatsyT : Gee AdLib I never thought of it that way but it does bring out the sensitive side and the protective side maybe this is part of the overall plot
bito : Just one line for the Ohio gals “Yet Boehner quietly continued to campaign for Iott even after his beaming Nazi photos were blasted over the national airwaves. “Boehner came to the district to campaign for him through the back door,” says a Kaptur aide, “and left just as stealthily.”
kesmarn : “Boehner is also an innovator in the loathsome new political phenomenon of men crying in public, co-owning mastery of the habit with screeching media dillweed Glenn Beck.” That one sentence alone makes the article worth reading!
AdLib : Patsy – Boehner’s tears bring out the desire for male companionship in airport restrooms in other Repubs.
PatsyT : I’ll read that over the weekend thanks Bito and Boomer!
Khirad : I was saving that Taibbi one.
kesmarn : I think that will be an alcohol IV running, Patsy.
bito : Did anyone get a chance to read the article by Matt Taibbi that boomer left? «link»
Khirad : You could bottle those tears.
PatsyT : Are they allowed to drink on the floor?
PatsyT : We can’t see go pail but we can see him FAIL
kesmarn : He’s going to need a running IV if he ever really has to filibuster, to keep him from getting de-hydrated from all the lacrimation.
PatsyT : So if a woman’s tears brings out the testosterone in a man … What do those Boner tears bring out?
AdLib : How will we know if Boehner is going to faint from crying too much? We can’t see him go pale.
bito : Letterman said that Crayola came out with a new color for Boehner. burnt boehner
AdLib : How would we know if Boehner has Malaria?
kesmarn : Someone will have to look very closely at the whites of his eyes. Then shoot. (And if Google is crawling…that was a JOKE)
PatsyT : How will Boner ever know if he has Jaundice or not?
kesmarn : Let’s hear it for non-doughy, cool men of any color!! Except Boehner-color!
AdLib : I understand how doughy, uncool white men might be enamored with Palin and the Fox News Bimbos but for the rest of us, they’re just plain nasty.
kesmarn : Whew…you had me worried there, b’ito!
PatsyT : Bito go to the 24 Hrs place OK?
bito : I think S’arah would look damn good at closing time.
PatsyT : Sorry Khirad I only know they played Columbus and the Ducks won.
Khirad : Milf? Nugent likes ’em a whole lot younger than that.
AdLib : Thanks Kes and Patsy! Maybe we can use that for buttons and bumper stickers when the 2012 GOP primary comes around?
Khirad : Patsy, you freaked me out and I thought I’d mixed up dates for the Oregon game. I had a real panicked moment there.
kesmarn : I just can’t get enough of men saying that they’re not all ga-ga over the Wasilla Twunt…I’ll admit it!
PatsyT : AdLib I like that one TOO !
kesmarn : Moron I’d Like to Forget!
PatsyT : Palin can’t inflict any of that pain until her manicure dries..
bito : S’arah is getting dumeped on TLC for Haggart? Is that what i heard? TLC is what? A freak show?
Khirad : Curious, tonight I brought up the story about those two (not mentioning their party) who were too busy to be sworn in to the FOX watchers – and it was news to them. And this is how the bagger myth is perpetuated. All other news is “liberal lies”, listen only to us, so we can construct are own reality for you. Diabolically genius. It’s something else to behold in the field when you subtly test their knowledge of current events in as nonpolitically stealth a way as possible. I hope they have the wherewithal to look the story up. I find it’s better for people to think they’re changing their minds on their own, even if it is a minute step in that process.
kesmarn : ‘Zactly, b’ito. And he’s into bow hunting, big time. The more pain you can inflict on an animal and the longer it takes ’em to die, the better, in his/Palin’s book.
AdLib : bito – Yes, he had some hits in the 70’s like Cat Scratch Fever but faded fast and became a well known RW gun nut.
PatsyT : Did I hear that the Huckster got a tiff going on with Ms Palin over Michelle Obama and her work on Childhood Nutrition?
AdLib : Palin is a MILF – Moron I’d Like to Forget
bito : What is Ted? a burnt out rocker?
PatsyT : AdLib that and it would make a great film plot ala Twilight Zone
kesmarn : I know a lotta guys call Palin a MILF. But Nugent apparently thinks of her as a “Huntin’ Buddy He’d Like to F**k”, just not a presidential one. Yet.
PatsyT : Hockey, The Ducks, Anaheim, .. my oldest daughter is at the game, sent me a text that they won.
bito : Won What, Patsy?
AdLib : Ted’s got “Grizzly Scratch Fever”.
PatsyT : OT Ducks Won!
Khirad : Ouch. Ted Nugent isn’t on board with a Palin presidency yet «link»
AdLib : Patsy – You’re on to something. The TP types are so insecure about themselves and the world around them as it is, if it became promoted that brain deficiencies contribute to being a Republican, maybe they’d switch just to look well adjusted!
bito : And he has a tale
kesmarn : He’d say: “I DO believe in spooks! I DO believe in spooks!”
PatsyT : At least he had a tail
PatsyT : AdLib it can be the new fear!
AdLib : Well, think of all the courage it takes for Boehner to cry and for Repubs to constantly lie instead of taking responsibility for their actions. What would the Cowardly Lion say?
kesmarn : Knowing them, AdLib, they’d say “Fear is good! You should have more of it!” (Same way they feel about greed!)
AdLib : Kes – It is a fascinating concept to consider that people may be Republican for physiological shortcomings! If this was more publicized, maybe many would vote Dem just so they aren’t viewed as defective?
Khirad : Oh my god, the Beckerhead we got literally thinks the future looks ‘bleak’ and the look on her face is apocalyptic. I’ve actually learned to laugh it off now. When I see her again in a few years I can gently remind her how friggin’ paranoid and pessimistic she was. And Barack better still be Pres. OMG, that would be the best.
bito : The is a fight in the the Repub. house the ‘baggers’-thos e who take the secret bag’o money and the baggers who really think they are going to ‘clean up Washington.
PatsyT : Kes That is why they say “Man Up” and they have SUCH a bad time with UNCERTAINTY .. They have no Courage!
kesmarn : Issa said that he believed the Gov of Hawaii when he said Obama was born there, but when asked if he would encourage his colleagues to accept that fact, he said: “They’re free to hold their own opinions.” Courageous…not .
AdLib : Kes – This is possibly the key strategy. A wedge needs to be hammered between the Tea Partiers and the GOP and bito’s suggestion was a great one, we should focus on highlighting how the GOP and the wealthy are betraying them and their campaign promises. Without this facade of being populist, they’re just less than 1% of the population and have no more than 30% of voter support (Repubs that is).
kesmarn : “At the same time, conservatives’ brains were also found to have a smaller anterior cingulate — the part of the brain responsible for courage and optimism.”
Khirad : AdLib and Kes, Absolutely, and even in the press they are dubbing it a Week of Missteps for the GOP. They’re breaking promises in record time and will need to put up or shut up about cutting spending. In reality, they’ll probably just try to create a lot of noise via Issa. That I still am trepidatious of.
PatsyT : They have larger fear centers «link»
kesmarn : AdLib, to go back to your question: I think as long as there’s a financial incentive for the backers of the Tea Party and the Repub party to stay linked they will. And they’ll be very resistant to publicly denouncing the craziness.
bito : Adlib, I agree, with most people getting their news from the TeeVee, I blame much on the media. You cant have a sane person on and an inmate on an call it “balance”
AdLib : Khirad – And of course, they will revert back to their hostile racism in 2012. I do think that by then, most Americans will have seen enough of the Tea Party. BTW, in case you didn’t see this at the beginning of the conversation, Kes said this about the behavior of the GOP in their first week: “You know, AdLib, as the week unfolded, I kept thinking how much of what happened was predicted right here on Vox! It was like a script that they followed!”
Khirad : Okay, numismatic plethora = wealth, right? Prophylaxis was the other odd one in context.
PatsyT : Khirad I will bother my brothers with that … They had to take Latin…
Khirad : I should totally post those on Whatsie’s article. What kind of universe would create that speech?
Khirad : Patsy, it ends up being gibberish, but amusing nonetheless.
PatsyT : The big problem is… they vote
kesmarn : “Our critical problems such as the numismatic plethora generate some agony and melancholy. This phenomenon is characteristic of our epoch. But, to my thesis, we have the dynamism to program therapeutic practices as a prophylaxis from chaos and catastrophe.” Sounds like it would fit today, Khirad. But I can just see Palin’s eyes spinning as she tried to decipher it.
Khirad : The “Arab” lady typifies the Baggers to the core. And, we had an early glimpse of them. They ARE mostly disgruntled, ignorant and bigoted GOP voters. How soon we all forgot the Palin rallies as they rebranded themselves as the newfangled ‘Tea Party’.
PatsyT : Khirad I will read that in the morning..
bito : Not sure if lysergic acid would have the same effect, k’es. repeated lies seem to work better. Ask Goebbels.
AdLib : Kes – I saw the video and thought, “How low do things have to go until a majority step up and say, ‘Enough of the craziness!”?
AdLib : Okay, here’s a question, just how insane do Repubs and Tea Partiers have to be for the MSM to refer to them as extremists. I mean, do they really think any normal American would yell out things like this from the Congressional Gallery?
Khirad : Back to the Greek for a sec. Ever heard of Xenophon Zolotas’s speeches? They were in English using only Greek loan-words. «link»
kesmarn : That was it, AdLib. (You were quick to find that!)
PatsyT : Wasn’t that gal that asked McCain if Obama was a Arab?
kesmarn : Yes, b’ito, it’s approaching widespread clinical paranoia. Was there some batch of rye bread that had some toxin growing in it that caused this national craziness?
AdLib : Birther Interrupts House Reading Of Constitution, Yells ‘Help Us Jesus’ — An apparent member of the birther movement seated in the gallery of the House of Representatives on Thursday interrupted a reading of the Constitution. The woman yelled out “Except Obama, except Obama, help us Jesus!” as Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) read the “natural born citizen” clause of the Constitution.
kesmarn : …and beyond. (Hit the send button too soon! Getting tired!)
bito : k’es and the EID stamps is a good example. Kenyan Socialism is another.
kesmarn : During the theatrical rendition of the Constitution some wild woman in the gallery started shrieking about Obama’s not being legit. People just feel it’s ok to do literally anything up to and including yelling “You lie!
bito : Excellent, bossman
AdLib : TerroRepublican
AdLib : Khirad – Once a legit political party declares that our government and president are illegitimate, that government is trying to kill our grannies and our freedom…how is it unusual that nutjobs feel encouraged to send bombs to people in government. They’re just being good patriots and Republicans.
PatsyT : Terroracist
kesmarn : And then they go: “DOH! I wanted to go to Atlanta!”
AdLib : Kes – You’re on tonight! SO true, these dimwits are taking minutes to read signs saying “To Hartford – 45 minutes”.
Khirad : I was taken aback by the “logic” myself. Sounded like racists complaining black people are racist to me. Same type of “logic” involved. Also, remember them up in “arms” over RW threats (the report first prepared under Bush admin)? Was that another self-fulfilling prophecy? Or are they terrorists who terrorize when ever anyone mentions they’re terrorists?
kesmarn : Maybe if the RW wasn’t so hostile to edumacation, people would be able to read those signs in under 3 hours.
bito : Homeland Security= J.Edger and wet dreams.
PatsyT : The stupidity is getting thick out there
kesmarn : How totally bizarre. What was the message?: “I’m so angry about your efforts to prevent terrorism that I’ll do something that will increase your efforts to prevent terrorism.”?
AdLib : “The Maryland packages had a message railing against highway signs urging motorists to report suspicious activity by calling a toll-free number. The message read: “Report suspicious activity! Total Bull-+–! You have created a self fulfilling prophecy.””
AdLib : Thanks bito, read it earlier, this is what got me, it’s a stunt apparently by a pissed off commuter who’s angry at longer delays due to HS signs: “The state’s terrorism tip line is widely shown on overhead highway signs along with information about missing children. To the ire of some drivers, the signs added real-time traffic estimates to major highways in March. Some commuters complained drivers slowed to read the signs and backed up traffic.”
bito : «link»
Khirad : A bomb went off addressed to her. «link»
bito : Saw the headline, didn’t read it, Khirad
kesmarn : What’s happening with Napolitano, Khirad?
Khirad : Have we gotten to the Napolitano thing yet?
bito : i know less than zero about the ICP. But I did get multiple emails about the Prez an doing an interview with O’Really.
AdLib : Hey Khirad! Greetings and salutations.
PatsyT : Oh Hey Khirad I put that a side for later
AdLib : Manson is a bright guy, ICP are not exactly.
kesmarn : Hey, Khirad! We were just speculating on how Ashcroft would have reacted to your photos!
Khirad : Beware the Moors in Toledo.
Khirad : After that Patsy, because ICP aren’t exactly joining MENSA anytime soon, watch Marilyn Manson interviewed on O’Reilly where Bill O gets owned.
kesmarn : We do have some pretty good Greek restaurants in Toledo, b’ito! Not to worry. I am a total fountain of info on all things Toledo.
bito : isn’t Toledo in Greece? (sorry, I was reading something today, and I wanted to ask you)
PatsyT : In my house, we always talk about the Toledo War
kesmarn : Would that be the Maumee, b’ito? I can’t keep up!! When did we start talking about the Toledo War????
AdLib : Kes – “The Ashcroft Burka” it would be called today.
kesmarn : b’ito…I thing Cheney should get some sort of indictment for Unlawful Knowledge of Carnage in Iraq…
bito : Speaking of the Toledo War, K’es, what is the name of the river that was the dividing line?
PatsyT : OK O’Rielly did an interview with ICP in 2001 «link»
kesmarn : Right, AdLib. And he would have put a veil over Khirad’s entire last article…
kesmarn : My daughter was into rap for a while, but she says it’s pretty much “played out” by now. She’s more into country these days…
AdLib : Kes – John Ashcroft would put them in Tommy Chong’s cell.
bito : “For Unlawful Carnage Knowledge” That’s what he would say, Patsy.
PatsyT : Kes I am lucky… my kids have no interest in that
kesmarn : Patsy, ICP is pretty liberal with the F-bomb for being religious guys…what would John Ashcroft say?
AdLib : Think of how many Greek kids loved saying “The A-crap-olis”.
kesmarn : And doesn’t “spanikopitas” mean “flatus”?
bito : “kulcher.” I’ll have look that one up.
AdLib : And everyone knows the old Greek gag, “Pull my digit.”
bito : That was a good article, k’es.
kesmarn : Dante used bathroom humor in Paradise Lost, too, b’ito. I’m trying to convince myself that I still got “kulcher.”
PatsyT : «link»
bito : k’es, there is an ancient Greek book of jokes and the first one is about…….,,Fa rts!! Bathroom jokes have been around for awhile.
kesmarn : b’ito, don’t you think the rest of the world must wonder what in the hell happened to us? Der Spiegel had an article on the Tea Party that was basically a German version of “WTF??”
PatsyT : Insane Clown Posse being religious.. I have to admit it was Khirad let me in on the Irony that these guys put this out.«link» outube.com/watch ?v=_-agl0pOQfs
AdLib : Kes – That Living Dead Guy better watch out, after all, he was just re-elected.
kesmarn : Dead people like these, Patsy? «link»
bito : Cool, Mississippi and the kidney transplant made BBC. Are we not proud? USA! USA! USA!
PatsyT : Kes Kids and bathroom humor and these are Girls!
PatsyT : I see Dead People
kesmarn : Patsy’s daughter is having an influence on me!
bito : pee soup party
AdLib : Kes – Love it! “I See Pee!”
AdLib : “Didn’t they go all Religious?” The GOP or ICP?
kesmarn : Referred to as: “I See Pee!”
kesmarn : Or did they claim that they had been religious all along?
AdLib : Insane Clown Party?
PatsyT : Insane Clown Posse
PatsyT : Didn’t they go all Religious?
kesmarn : Graham, Gingrich, McCain and Bachmann were the best!
bito : Isn’t it politofact the does one that does it on the Prez?
AdLib : Hey, remember Insane Clown Posse? Well…
AdLib : Sorry Patsy!
AdLib : bito – That’s a great idea! Repub broken promises!
PatsyT : Bad dreams for me for a month!
AdLib : Heh, check out this “Republiclown” video: «link»
PatsyT : I just glances at Google images and they must have scrubbed images of Boner smoking….
kesmarn : I’ve seen interviews with Alan Grayson and Nancy Pelosi this past week, and both of them have something to cry about. But they seemed to still be full of joix de vivre and good humor. This guy won and hasn’t stopped crying since! ??
bito : Another post that is needed, and it is being done on Mr. Obama, is Promises made v. promises kept on the R’s. They have already broken 3
AdLib : Where’s WTS when you need him?
AdLib : A golf club in one hand and behind him, a Bachmann Clown with his even more giant mallet about to conk him.
PatsyT : Oh Boy sounds like a hit
kesmarn : Using a golf club as a balance thingy?
bito : Good AdLib, You’re right, which one is the clown?
AdLib : Patsy – I can have him in a tu-tu on a tightrope over a giant martini.
PatsyT : Thats great AdLib Can he be Smoking and have a cocktail?
kesmarn : And was it Tomasky who called him “lazy and un-serious”?
bito : Taibbi said he had a 87,000 dollar golf tab in a Florida resort. this while he was supposed to be serving??
PatsyT : What Kes He laughs all the time at people that HAVE something to cry about
AdLib : Which is the real clown? You decide!
kesmarn : Is it wrong to laugh at pix of people crying? Because I just did.
AdLib : Okay folks, just made this while we’re chatting: «link»
bito : AdLib, never mind.
PatsyT : Not being able to get to the tanning bed or having to go with out a game of golf???
bito : Chemo?
AdLib : bito – go to tinyurl.com and get a tiny url for it.
kesmarn : Yeah, Patsy…booze? middle age hormones? depression? terror at the thought of actually having to lead?
PatsyT : President Obama quit smoking but NOT Weeper Boner!
bito : Weird, it was a page of pics of Emmet kelly
PatsyT : Kes Yes there must be a medical reason for the water works
bito : «link»
AdLib : bito – weird, maybe a problematic character in the URL? Try again.
bito : What happened there???
kesmarn : Those are exceptionally creepy, Patsy! It would be interesting to get Questinia’s take on Boehner’s weepiness (or did she already talk about it and I missed it?) and what could cause it.
PatsyT : «link»
bito : What’s with all the dark, scary clowns? i grew up with Red Skeleton and Emmit Kelly «link»
PatsyT : Why so Serious «link»
kesmarn : Got those creepy blue eyes just right! Someone was speculating that Boehner was pretending to cry. But — honestly — I think he’s not. He really is in a state of non-stop emotional melt-down all the time.
AdLib : Bito – Compare to your image – Twins separated at birth: «link»
kesmarn : Not just killer clowns…but from outer space, no less!
PatsyT : Bad Dreams for me for a Week!
PatsyT : My Kids all hated Clowns!
bito : «link»
AdLib : Then don’t watch this trailer for “Killer Clowns From Outer Space”. «link»
PatsyT : So right Bito!
bito : All the pics of him weeping are good enough. No make up needed.
kesmarn : My daughter was always creeped out by clowns.
PatsyT : Bad dreams for me tonight!
kesmarn : Tears of a Clown. A classic.
AdLib : Kes, I’d like to see a Boehner clown as the Red Skelton type sad clown painting.
kesmarn : Boehner clown is fabulous! And clown car on fire is hilarious!
AdLib : Love all of them! Clowns can be scary, sad clowns (boehner), dumb, so many things you can do with clowns including elect them into the majority of the House!
AdLib : Check it out: «link»
kesmarn : More like this, Patsy? «link»
bito : This one is better «link»
kesmarn : Republiclown with a congressman’s face on a clown body could work out well, I think, AdLib.
PatsyT : I like Republiclown
PatsyT : Bito they look too friendly these clown have ill intent on the brain.
AdLib : Not trying to push this too hard but…Republiclo wn? Goes with Bito’s image and just think of the fun we could have putting a new face of a Repub on a clown image every week?
kesmarn : But…but…when we notice how dumb they are, doesn’t that make us elitists?
kesmarn : b’ito!
PatsyT : I was thinking Rupert from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
bito : «link»
kesmarn : Ahhh…a DeNiro movie I missed. Shame on me!
AdLib : King of Comedy, DeNiro’s character.
kesmarn : Uh-oh…now I have to admit ignorance… Rupert Pupkin?
AdLib : Rupert Pupkin -> Repupkin
kesmarn : I have to admit to a certain fondness for Repuballoon.
PatsyT : Cirque de Ovey
bito : Time for you Republoony
AdLib : Kes
kesmarn : Repubaloney
PatsyT : AdLib that sounds medical
AdLib : Republiclown?
kesmarn : Full of hot air…
kesmarn : Repuballoon?
AdLib : Republoony of The Week?
PatsyT : Can they see themselves in the mirror?
bito : Patsy
kesmarn : Do Stepford women ever blink?
PatsyT : Has anyone ever seen that Shelly blink?
bito : GOPU!!Tell your youngster. BINGO!!
AdLib : bito – no way, Shell is just about the publicity, no deep following like Palin.
PatsyT : My daughter is at it again
PatsyT : G O P U
bito : Will Shelly give S’arah a run for the MONEY?
kesmarn : This week’s “Mendacious Refudiator” is…
PatsyT : Kes I Like it!
AdLib : The Refudiator of the Week?
kesmarn : Patsy! or “Refudiate This!”
AdLib : “Are you Dumber Than a 5th Grader?”
bito : That was Markey of Mass. What a flaming Lib!!

PatsyT : My Daughter says Globs of Poop … GOP you know how kids like stuff with the word poop
kesmarn : Giant Gavel-struck Goobers? GGG?
bito : How about just plain “HUH??”
PatsyT : GOPdiot
AdLib : GOP Goobers?

AdLib : Village Idiot has a ring and nice imagery to it.
AdLib : Class of 2011 Clown

bito : OK, brainstorm, kids! Whats the title?
PatsyT : Dolt? Nincompoop? Moron?
AdLib : GOP Doofus of the Week?
kesmarn : You’re right, Patsy. It’s a whole different level of crime, depending on the victim, isn’t it?
bito : Good idea, Adlib. make a sticky every Sunday?
kesmarn : b’ito, they have no idea how to respond to facts. That’s like being expected to breath underwater for them…alien environment.
PatsyT : Now Kes that depend if the black women take that 11$ from a white person or a black person.
bito : Had to take a break, too bad k’es that you didn’t get a reply.
PatsyT : AdLib and a weekly winner!
kesmarn : Yes, AdLib, all they have to do is issue a statement that they are “saved” and that anyone who doesn’t “forgive” them is godless and they’re home free. Let a couple of black women allegedly take $11 though, and look out!
AdLib : Patsy – Maybe an ongoing list where people can vote up or down the list the looniest words and actions of Repubs?
AdLib : they’re
AdLib : Kes – Repubs are allowed to lie, cheat on their wives and steal because their God’s Party.
kesmarn : Why are the supporters of the loonies so totally oblivious to their looniness, though?
AdLib : Monty Python did a political sketch about “The Loony Party”, that sketch will be studied like Nostradamus predictions by historians, “How did they foresee the Republican Party of 2011?
PatsyT : AdLib a top ten perhaps once a week maybe?
kesmarn : One of those little local papers around here did an interview with Richie-Rich Iott, the Nazi re-enactor who ran against Marcy Kaptur, and he was still trying to convince people that it was Kaptur herself who put out his Nazi-boy photos to the press. She had no access to them!! They never take responsibility for their own actions. Ever.
PatsyT : Sea Shelly …Hold up the shell and listen to the empty sound…
AdLib : Patsy – The next two years will be an Idiocy Bowl. We should set up a post for each week’s idiocies and vote for the top ones!
bito : I have never seen anyone with such a blinking “vacancy” sign in their eeys like she has.
PatsyT : How can any one ignore this stupid show? The press will have to lay off President Obama for a while… there will be way too much material to cover coming out of this House.
bito : With that look of Shelly’s, she will scare all the bad guys.
kesmarn : b’ito I sent that link to my relative in TN — the one that proved the “Eid Arabic” stamp came out on Dubya’s watch. Crashing, deafening silence from the south after that!
AdLib : “No dark mendacity in the House room…”
bito : You are right k’es, they have power over 300 million peoples lives. Not good.
AdLib : “We don’t need Moe education…”
kesmarn : Or “Less” on Education…
AdLib : Patsy – That means not interrupting the GOP for 2 years straight.
PatsyT : More like “No Moe” Education!
bito : Shelly talking about running for Pres???
kesmarn : Patsy, I like that quote. I just hope the American electorate is paying attention as they self-destruct.
AdLib : Bito – Moe on Education, Larry on Energy, Curly on intelligence. Nyaa-aaa-aaa!
kesmarn : Jinx, indeed!
bito : Fox on education. barton on energy. Shelly on intelligence.
PatsyT : This isi the quote.. “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.” – Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821)
AdLib : Kes – Jinx!
kesmarn : There is a really funny side to the whole thing, until you realize that your own life is in these peoples’ hands…! Then the terror sets in.
AdLib : Heh! Bito, it would be funnier if he wasn’t regarded as being among the best and the brightest of the majority party in the House.
bito : Where do they all come from??
bito : I think the new house will be like clowns coming out of an old VW. Just one more.
kesmarn : Oh, God. How do these people get elected? Like Virginia Foxx…who would ever vote for such a dolt?
bito : KO showed the clip, and I would bet it is on u-tube by now.
AdLib : Patsy – Exactly! The Repubs under their cartoonishly-wee ping leader will display their freak proudly, thinking that was what voters wanted…only realizing with Obama’s re-election that being mad at Dems isn’t the same as liking lunatic Repubs.
kesmarn : Did he actually say that on the House floor, b’ito??? What an idiot! Boehner is the embodiment of mendacity, though. Even a stopped clock is right….
AdLib : Kes – Many here called it and it looks like the Repubs are indeed going to use their power to give themselves big gavels and pander to the birthers and Ayn Rand “libertarians” . This is a train wreck in slow motion and indeed, folks here have seen it coming.
bito : Well, i will never question the Speakers mendacity!! (see my post in TOOT) If you don’t know the definition of a word,don’t use it. Especially on the house floor.
kesmarn : I might have to open a pub and call it “Wii-Fi.” No one wearing tea bags on a hat is allowed in.
PatsyT : “Never get in the way of your enemy when they are destroying themselves..” ‘Bonner’part
kesmarn : You know, AdLib, as the week unfolded, I kept thinking how much of what happened was predicted right here on Vox! It was like a script that they followed!
AdLib : Patsy and Kes – That’s it! Put polling places in bars and offer a free drink with proof of texting or Wii-ing your vote!
AdLib : As a first topic, what do you think of the first week of our new Repub Senate? Boehner needs a big gavel so the other kids know he’s a bigger boss of them…and if you don’t compliment him on the size of his gavel, he’ll cry. They exempted tax cuts, repealing HCR and so many other things from their tax cutting pledge, they’ve ramped up threats on raising the debt ceiling, they wasted most of a day taking turns reading a handful of words from the Constitution…w hat do you expect this year and the next year will be like in DC with Tea Party Repubs in power?
PatsyT : How about Free Beer for every vote!
kesmarn : Between Wii and texting, we could get turnout close to 99% I’ll bet.
AdLib : Hey, I wonder if they set up elections so you could vote with your Wii, if turnout would skyrocket?
bito : RehaB
AdLib : Bito – That’s the Xmas spirit!
kesmarn : In my case, Santa (aka my son) bought a Wii for the Fave 4th grader for Christmas last year, and new games this year.
bito : Yes, I think my baby bother thinks me old. When he gave it to me he said something about..Just like they have in the rehad
AdLib : Has someone been a bad boy or girl?
AdLib : Hey…did I just scare everyone with the mention of Santa?
AdLib : Did Santa bring you a Wii?
bito : I had to switch to ping-pong and Gawd am I good!
kesmarn : I was being Michael Jackson dancing to “Smooth Criminal” tonight, much to the Fave’s amusement.
AdLib : Bito – I didn’t know they had a bear wrestling game.
kesmarn : b’ito! Were you hurling that virtual frisbee again?
AdLib : Are you Wii-ping?
bito : Hey all, I think I tore a rotator cuff playing Wii. lol
AdLib : Everyone having a nice new year so far?
kesmarn : Hey, Patsy! How are you?
AdLib : Hey Patsy!
AdLib : Frowny the Snowman.
PatsyT : Hey How is everyone?
kesmarn : Icy heart is year-round, though…
kesmarn : Yep. He’s a Tan Frosty the Snowman.
AdLib : Is it true that Boehner has icicles hanging from his face when he visits OH in the winter?
kesmarn : Frozen eyeballs can come in handy, too. Boehner should try it. Dry up those weepers and create a few icicles for the Christmas tree. Oh– and when she got home, she played with her Wii…
AdLib : Very cool! Though moans from Wii manufacturers were heard.
kesmarn : Took the fave 4th grader out to celebrate a good report card. She picked the art museum! (Yay!)
Jenuwin : No problems here
AdLib : Frozen eyeballs can have their disadvantages.
kesmarn : Hi, Jenuwin, I had snow in my eyes. Sorry for IDing you with the wrong gender!
AdLib : G-Net-Lady?
AdLib : Chilly out here for LA but nowhere near what you’re dealing with!
kesmarn : I think I like “gnetlelady”!
AdLib : Kes – Whoa! Watch that last step, it’s a doozy.
AdLib : gentlelady
AdLib : BTW, Jenuwin is a gnetlelady as well.
kesmarn : Snowy evening in Ohio. Slipped and slid my way home and was almost late to the party.
AdLib : Good evening to you gentlelady!
kesmarn : Good evening, gentlemen!
Jenuwin : LOL!
AdLib : Mmm…chocolate turkey!!!
Jenuwin : Full of food and chocolates
AdLib : How about you?
AdLib : Very busy but fun.
Jenuwin : Thanks! Hope your holidays were nice
