• AdLib : Thanks Funk! Night!

  • funksands : Sorry I have been very distracted by a kiddo who won’t go to sleep… You have a good one too Ad.

  • AdLib : Well Funk, looks like it’s about that time to close the Vox bar for the night. Hope you and the family are doing great! Have a great weekend!

  • AdLib : Sounds great, CL. BTW, was it a pickpocket who stole Hubby’s wallet?

  • AdLib : The Pres abides.

  • choicelady : Thank you, AdLib – we’re slowly getting his ID back. I will contact Steinberg’s person (why can I NOT remember her name?) after the 15th when session is over. She and I have agreed to do that. I will keep you posted!

  • AdLib : Funk – We did discuss Syria, most agree that the vote will go against Obama’s resolution for an attack and Obama will abide by the vote.

  • AdLib : Sorry to hear that, CL! Get some sleep and let me know when we can start HOPE-ing! Rest well and best to hubby1

  • AdLib : Funk – Steele does strike me as a nerdy guy who would be looked as a worthless fool in the Dem party but as one of those rare things in the GOP called “blacks”, he stood out as every Repubs example of how black people can be Repubs. He has got to know how he was used and abused by the GOP solely exploiting him for his skin color. But denial runs deep in Repubs, they find ways of avoiding a view of realities that upset them.

  • choicelady : funk and AdLib – I hate to abandon you, but I’m absolutely crashing. Too much stress at work and last week during the MOW in DC. My husband got his wallet stolen, and picking up the pieces of his ID has been very stressful. So I’m heading to bed to try to revive some life in my old self. Be well!

  • funksands : Have you guys discussed Syria tonight? I’m feeling Syria-ed out until I see the vote and hear from the UN inspectors.

  • choicelady : AdLib – those pretenses are just totally embarrassing. TOTALLY.

  • AdLib : CL – I loved Steele when he tried to sound and act “urban” as RNC Chairman, it was like an SNL bit, Steele has so little in common with most black people, he thought just acting urban would do the trick. It was no different than Romney in 2008 singing, “Who let the dogs out?” with a totally bewildered group of black people.

  • choicelady : funk – that’s a good observation about Steele.

  • choicelady : AdLib – they myth of the ‘rugged individualist’ just won’t die with too many people.

  • funksands : Ad, I bet Michael “steels” himself with a stiff scotch every morning. The reason he sucks worse than tools like Keyes is that he knows better, isn’t insane and still aligns himself with the Grand Old Clown Car.

  • AdLib : CL – There is a theory that some people really want to be manipulated, they really want someone to tell them how to think and what opinions to have. The ones who pander to them the best, get their blind loyalty. This is the core of the GOP, they seem completely disassociaqted from how the GOP policies would destroy their lives. No SNAP, no HC, no SS, no Medicare, most of these people would just die yet they vote for snuffing themselves out.

  • choicelady : Is Reince Preibus real or a Disney Animitronic?

  • choicelady : AdLib – but but but – Steel is BLACK. Can’t have THAT.

  • AdLib : When Michael Steele became an MSNBC pundit I thought, “Really, putting a moronic hack like him on as legit?” Little did I know that the BaggerGOP would become so insane, Steele would look almost rational in comparison. What is ridiculous is when Steele decides he’s going to push the idiotic party line on this or that issue, he just makes no sense. And keep in mind what the GOP did with their historic first black RNC Chairman…they immediately ditched him when his first term was up despite the GOP winning big with him in place in 2010.

  • choicelady : AdLib – I know. I am still into head shaking wondering how so many people can be so totally flim flammed so often.

  • AdLib : The GOP has Log Cabin Republicans despite their anti-gay marriage platform. They have Latinos like Ted Cruz who oppose immigration reform and fair treatment for Latinos. They have rural folks supporting them while they push plans to take away the government money those folks rely on. What does any difference matter when you’re a Repub, they’re all the same lousy product no matter the wrapper they come in.

  • choicelady : funk – West could be their Secretary of Morality.

  • choicelady : funk – would there not be a duel to the death over who leads the Cain-Keyes ticket? HUGE egoes there.

  • funksands : I’ll say!

  • choicelady : funk – lack of facts makes life sooooo much easier!

  • funksands : ….Ticket

  • choicelady : AdLib – Oy. What a team that would be. Barf.

  • funksands : The “No Facts Batshit”

  • AdLib : Funk – Cain-Keyes 2016!

  • choicelady : AdLib – nope. It’s just fun to yank their chains.’

  • funksands : ;-)

  • AdLib : CL – You expected a troll to provide a logical explanation? You are a true optimist!

  • choicelady : funk – surely you jest…?????

  • funksands : I think Alan Keyes would have made a fine 1st black President…

  • choicelady : I keep asking the trolls who say Black people vote for ONLY other Black people why then they did not support West and Cain – and the answer is that they vote for people who support them. Oh shock and awe!!! So voting for a woman just because she’s a woman is the same thing. Bad policies are BAD never mind whose.

  • AdLib : Night Murph! Have a great weekend!

  • funksands : Night Murph!

  • AdLib : Murph – MSNBC was heralding Quinn months ago as the heir apparent to be mayor, celebrating her for being the first gar mayor of NY. But if her policies are the same as Bloomberg, why does that matter? It’s like electing Herman Cain as President and celebrating him for being the first black President. It’s one thing to be the first but another thing to be someone who should be celebrated because of their acumen. This is why Obama will be a true historic figure throughout US history.

  • choicelady : Murph – yup – it’s later there than here, so get rest. I won’t be here next week (heading to a wedding that night) but week after. Be well!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Well folks…time has come….I am off to bed….Nite all.

  • choicelady : AL – “exposed”. Sigh.
