• Kalima : I know all about those. As I often say to bito, why aren’t you sleeping yet. Off you go now. Bloody time zones, my bad. :oops: Take care.

  • AdLib : Heh…I could make a joke about that but I will instead be a good boy and just wish you a lovely call!

  • Kalima : I will, he will be delighted. Calls MB, your “Morning Thingy.” :lol:

  • AdLib : Say hi for me, Kalima!

  • Kalima : Not that there is anyone here to read it, but I’m updating MB early today. Hot date on Skype with my father. ;-)

  • kesmarn : Tab soda and vintage popcorn…mmmmm. ..

  • AdLib : Mmm…vintage popcorn…

  • Khirad : Just stay clear of that moldy 40 year old popcorn.

  • kesmarn : :lol: Gives whole new meaning to the term “pepper spray.” And Cheney in a garter belt…nightmare s!!

  • Chernynkaya : There is something unsavory about wanting so much pepper! I am picturing Cheney in a garter belt (ala Hoover)with shotgun, and Harry dressed as a little quail. Yikes! Shampoo my brain now.

  • kesmarn : That article could have been summarized in just a few words, Cher. Harry to Dick: “Please, sir, may I have another?”

  • Chernynkaya : DANG!! «link»

  • Chernynkaya : OOps– the link about Harry:

  • Chernynkaya : “Nearly five years on, he’s still waiting for Dick Cheney to say he’s sorry.”

  • kesmarn : And Harry was such a loyal gooper, he apologized for getting in the way of the pepper…sigh…

  • Chernynkaya : I STILL laugh at that–when Cheney “peppered” Harry Whittington, and Jon Stewart asked, “PEPPERED?? What, he was seasoning him?!”

  • kesmarn : ‘Shotmy Dick” sounds like something Cheney-esque and hunting related.

  • Chernynkaya : That’s fine too, kes! :lol: I think Shotmy Wadhams is actually not as perfect as Dick Wadhams.

  • kesmarn : :lol: Cher, I must be tired, too, because I initially read your comment to imply the name as “Shotmy Dick” !!

  • Chernynkaya : AL– That MUST be it!! Love it.

  • AdLib : Also, there’s always a couple of kernels that pop after the microwave stops.

  • Chernynkaya : Thanks, AdLib, but just one open. Maybe I am decompressing?

  • AdLib : If you have more than one window open with The Planet, you may hear a delayed “pop” from another window for the same comment you’ve already seen.

  • Chernynkaya : I hear pocks, but see no new comments. Is it me??

  • Chernynkaya : At least they didn’t name him Shotmy!

  • kesmarn : Richard’s mom must have been either cruel or clueless, dontcha think? :-D

  • Chernynkaya : My all-time favorite pol’s name is Dick Wadhams. It doesn’t get any better, IMO.

  • kesmarn : Khirad, :lol:

  • kesmarn : oops..meant to say, he’s almost a lefty!

  • Khirad : And most of ’em need this to compensate «link»

  • kesmarn : That name has always cracked me up, AdLib. In today’s GOP, he

  • AdLib : “Dick Lugar”…could there be any better Freudian description of the typical GOPer (keeping in mind that a Luger is a gun)?

  • Khirad : That would be a weird campaign – Lugar v. Obama.

  • Khirad : Converse makes other stuff now though. I called ’em Cons, myself.

  • AdLib : The 2012 GOP Primary will break new ground in next year’s Golden Globes, nominated as both Best Comedy and Best Episodic Drama. It will be Must See TV.

  • kesmarn : Word has it Dick Lugar is planning a run in 2012. Why did I totally not see that one coming? I could almost kinda sorta like him, in a wouldn’t-vote-f or-him sorta way…

  • bito : In 1970, Converse were not known as “Chuck Taylor’s”

  • Chernynkaya : HEH!

  • Khirad : You know I can’t resist stoner questions.

  • Chernynkaya : Got it! And read my post tomorrow too, OK?

  • Khirad : The shoes. Converse.

  • Chernynkaya : Tired as you are, who is Chuck Taylor? Is he down thread?

  • Khirad : I had a Chuck Taylor phase. Oh and ditto on Huckabee. Thought I’d streamline the two topics. And yes, I’m so tired I’m saving AdLib’s MLK article for tomorrow.

  • Chernynkaya : GAWD! That last comment was written by someone real tired!

  • Chernynkaya : But if my sleeper candidate is Marco Rubio. If he rans, I’d really be worried. Remember, Obama was a junior senator too.

  • Chernynkaya : Oops– my two cents is that Huckabee is the real danger. he’s likable while every bit as radical as any of them–maybe more so.

  • Chernynkaya : I missed Vox Pop but I read the thread–it was excellent!

  • kesmarn : Should I put my wig hat on my head? I’m pretty sure we’re gonna knock ’em dead.

  • bito : “put on your high- heeled sneakers, mama, ’cause we’re going out tonight”

  • kesmarn : Oops…forgot the link «link»
