• AdLib : I agree, Beatlex. I think Repubs hold the House but not a lot of gains and Dems keep The Senate.

  • Beatlex : AdLib,the maddening thing is that despite their obvious ineptness,the R’s will likely hang onto the house and have a chance to take over the Senate.Which personally I doubt,what do you think?

  • AdLib : Wow, thanks for all the wonderfully kind words. The feeling is mutual, I’m always trying to write up to my friends here.

  • Fergie1 : Ad, you’re a hoot as well as being clever, witty, erudite and right on! Good afternoon from me and Bon Nuit to you.

  • AdLib : Beatlex – Yep, those Repubs sure wet themselves a lot over all kinds of paranoid stuff.

  • AdLib : Same here, Fergie, enjoyed it! Take care!

  • Beatlex : LOL AdLib! Adult diapers indeed,they better be extra absorbent

  • Fergie1 : Ad, yes, that’s about it from here also. Take good care and have a great weekend. Thank you for the chat and the welcome. :)

  • AdLib : Rand and Rupert, that sounds like a bad comedy team or the manufacturers of faulty adult diapers.

  • Fergie1 : Adlib, agreed. It’s pretty much the same in most countries. I see that Rand Paul is trying to team up with that scumbag Murdoch. Pauls’s run for the Presidency! Oh please run Rand – another looney tune.

  • AdLib : Well Fergie, looks like it’s time to close the Vox Shop for the night. Lots of fun and great chats tonight. Have a great weekend!

  • AdLib : Yep Fergie, sad that we have such a lame media that doesn’t barbecue the GOP for its transparent dishonesty.

  • AdLib : Take care ppo, have a great weekend!

  • Fergie1 : Adlib, what can I say but YEP! 150% correct. Sad.

  • AdLib : And what is the worst possible crime that Repubs could possibly find that was committed by Obama on Benghazi? He politicized it! Er…my irony meter just exploded.

  • pinkpantheroz : AdLib, Fergie, thankx for the laughs and see you all here next week, and probably elsewhere before then. Tale Care, everybody.

  • AdLib : Fergie – It’s an old and tested game plan by the Repubs. Distract from what really matters because America opposes them on all that and focus on BS scandals and outrages like the ACA Death Panels and Benghazi.

  • Fergie1 : Adlib and PPO :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Fergie1 : PPO, you’ve got that take on the state of play down perfectly. Deflect from the issues that are deeply eroding America – no matter the cost.

  • AdLib : ppo – That’s right, no fuckin’ cursing around here.

  • AdLib : ppo – It’s gotten so absurd now, the extents the Repubs go to now to try and win elections because they don’t appeal to a majority based upon their positions on issues.

  • pinkpantheroz : Please excuse my profanity. Won’t happen again.

  • pinkpantheroz : Let me get this right. The US has: potholes the size of buses, bridges falling down, trains carrying toxic shit derailing, families who cannot live on welfare, Military who can’t live on their pay, huge corruption and insider dealing and trading everywhere, and all the GOP can say is ‘BENGHA-fucking -ZI’? Sure looks like it from here.

  • AdLib : The GOP is really falling apart emotionally, Lindsay Graham is coming off as frantic and crazed.

  • pinkpantheroz : good night, choice, and enjoy your NAG-free Weekend!

  • AdLib : I would like to see the families of Benghazi victims go public in a press conference just to condemn the politicizing and exploitation of their lost ones.

  • AdLib : Thanks CL! When this period is over, we’ve got some HOPE to catch up on!

  • choicelady : Thank you, AdLib – hope to be here longer next Friday! Be well and YOU get rest, too.

  • AdLib : Night CL! Get some rest, you deserve it!

  • AdLib : Night glenn! So glad you’re back on the Vox!

  • Fergie1 : To all those here heading off, take care, have a fab. weekend. Bye :)

  • AdLib : Night KT! See you over the weekend on the music thread!

  • choicelady : Well everyone – I’m heading out, too. Have had a hellacious week though often a good one, and we’re heading to northern beachside places for three days of relaxation. I hope everyone has a good weekend and week to come. Good night!

  • glenn : Thanks all, hope everyone has a great weekend!

  • choicelady : glenn – good night! Good to see you – I’m hot on your heels out the door. We’re heading up the coast tomorrow for three days of NO BODY NAGGING US! Can’t wait! Have an excellent weekend!

  • pinkpantheroz : Sleep wee, KT and glenn, ( of course, not together, but now…..) :)

  • Beatlex : Glenn,Thx,and you have a good night too!

  • Fergie1 : Geln, could not agree more. That is exactly right. Of course the GOP don’t care about the feelings of the familes, they just want to try and use every trick in the book to stir and deflect from their lack of action while getting paid for the past 6 or so years. A total disgrace.

  • glenn : And, folks, I’m right behind KT. Just a quick shout-out to Beatlex to say “hi” and “bye” in the same post. And, I will be definitely be voting.

  • choicelady : Good night, KT – take care. Hope Spring is a permanent thing there on the Cape! Tell your Mom we all say HI.

  • Beatlex : AdLib,exactly.I don’t think they even know what they are looking for.It shows how desperate they are really.This is all they have?? Bring it!

  • choicelady : glenn – mine, too, but… I give Hillary kudos for sticking with Bill when she wanted to kill him.

  • glenn : G’night KT. Take care.

  • choicelady : glenn – I just went over to Benghazi Watchdog – still there, still raising money!

  • glenn : CL–I’m with you. I’d have drawn and quartered the guy. And, my husband was the love of my life.

  • Fergie1 : Hi CL. That’s good to know as well about Glenn Doherty’s family. Graham should be ashamed of himself, but these GOPers never are.

  • KillgoreTrout : Well good people, I just stopped in, but gotta go, little time left fore the morning sun. This weekend, with music, well have some fun!

  • AdLib : Isn’t it also telling that the Repubs DON’T CARE about investigating and capturing those who actually killed Americans in Benghazi? How can they really care when they don’t care about catching the killers?

  • glenn : Fergie–I saw that story about the ambassador’s family asking that the repubs stop with the nonsense, already. I saw it on that website that will not be mentioned. It says that Pelosi says she heard from 2 of the 4 families, but she didn’t mention names. I’m glad to hear the families are speaking up and saying, “enough, already.” As the repubs keep asking, “Don’t you care about those 4 dead Americans?” If they cared about them, they’d stop bringing up the incident over and over. And, they’d stop fundraising “over their bodies.” Does anybody know–did the RCC take down that “Benghazi Watchdog” fundraising site yet?

  • Beatlex : Hi Everyone! The R’s are looking really pathetic.I love it.Lynn Cheeeny?? Who listens to that old bag anyway

  • choicelady : Fergie – Glenn Doherty, a colleague of mine, was also killed there, and his family feels the same as Stevens’father.

  • Fergie1 : *contempt

  • KillgoreTrout : What’s up Beatlex?

  • AdLib : Hey Beatlex!

  • Fergie1 : Jan Stevens, the father of Christopher Stevens said that it would be abhorrent to play politics with his sons death. And yet Lindsay Graham continues to use the familes of those killed as a reason to politicize what happened. He is beyond comtempt.

  • AdLib : ppo – Love “Gone Troppo”!

  • choicelady : Beatlex! Hi and thank you, yes VOTE.

  • choicelady : glenn – it’s supposed to make Hillary and Obama look incompetent. Now I will take a look at her refusal to list Boko Haram as a terrorist organization. However, her rationale actually made certain sense, tho damned if I remember why. But she might have had quicker international reaction to the kidnap had she been willing to follow advice from very many quarters.

  • Beatlex : So the R’s seem to be putting all their eggs in the BENGHAZI! Basket.They are in sad shape,for them.Sane people rejoice! And GET OUT TO VOTE MY AMERICAN FRIENDS!!

  • AdLib : glenn – Repubs are having this new Benghazi committee because they want to get to the bottom of it. “It” meaning approval polls and decency.

  • KillgoreTrout : I agree CL. Some say love has no bounds. I’m not sure about that, for everyone.

  • choicelady : PPO – I like that expression. Conjures up sweaty dementia.

  • glenn : Ad–I know that’s where the outrage rests. But, why are they outraged over that? That’s what I can’t understand! As Hillary said, “what difference does it make?” Will it bring those four dead Americans back? Will it stop future terrorist attacks if we call them terrorists? I just don’t get it.

  • choicelady : AdLib – how anyone could think Hillary would want to hear from Monica again… OMG that’s so Cheney-ish.

  • pinkpantheroz : Ad, you’re right. Cheney’s ‘gone troppo’ if HRC would have any interest in dredging up that whole sorry affair again. ( Gone Troppo, btw is an old aussie expression for getting Tropical Fever)

  • KillgoreTrout : glenn, I hope I’m not “misunderestima ting.”

  • AdLib : PPO – Happy to send the Daily Show a link to the Benghazi post, thanks!

  • choicelady : glenn – it’s spreading throughout the South and is bringing some fairly conservative people together with liberals around these justice issues. VERY cool!

  • choicelady : KT – there are friends of mine who’ve stayed together when had it been me, I’d have drawn and quartered the guy. Love knows its own heart. It’s not for us to determine what to do.

  • KillgoreTrout : Exactly glenn.

  • AdLib : How about the Lynne Cheney “theory” that Hillary was behind Lewinsky resurfacing? Repubs are clinically paranoid and insane.

  • glenn : CL–I know, isn’t it great to see Moral Mondays in a red state?

  • choicelady : glenn – there was a talking points email – it had to do with issues in general NOT just Benghazi – that they now claim is a smoking gun, but it was written DAYS after the incident and is from the communications people NOT policy people. Upon this their entire outrage rests. I am NOT making that up.

  • glenn : KT–I hope you’re not underestimating the American voter, either. I truly think the American people are not that stupid; it’s trying to make those same, sane American people into American voters.
