Tuesday Twitter roundup

If you want to honor them, put a roof over their heads:

The thing is, Owly, a successful "conversation" often hinges on whether you spell your words correctly or not. As far as using a boom box outside her window to woo the girl of your dreams, I can tell you from experience it doesn't work. Of course, my choice of "Baby Got Back" as a tune may have played a role in that rejection...

Speaking of huge asses:

No, it's you that don't understand the law. Or the US Constitution, for that matter.

That's the best idea I've heard in a long time.

Better to control access of those pesky citizens, regardless of what their eventual explanation will claim.

Hah! :)

More Facebook follies:

Not sure what having red ants all over your hand has to do with farting, but I'm just going to have to add that to the list of things that aren't on my list of things that I need to learn about.

Don't do it, just don't. I guarantee you there's a mom&pop pizza place within 2 miles of where you live. Unless you live out in the sticks, in which case Dominos probably won't deliver to you anyway. I know you've heard the "buy local" mantra before, but we're (you and I) going to start putting that into practice in a big way starting right effing now. Don't feed the corporate machine, because it will bite that hand.

Speaking of:

Okay, American Express. I'll let you slide this time. ;)

Don't you get it by now? The issue doesn't matter; if Obama is for it, the Congressional Republicans are against it. Period.

No shit, Sherlock, since your name was the only one on that part of the ballot.

Oh yeah, they'll pull something, for sure. We should start a contest to see who figures out what they're going to do...

Translated: "I need to see how much more embarrassment she can take from all my stupid personnel hiring practices and illogical public statements."

The pundits still can't see the forests for the trees:

It remains to be seen whether Democratic weakness in the South will outlive the Obama years. The national Democratic Party has fully embraced and even defined itself in terms of cultural liberalism — on gun control, gay rights, immigration, abortion, environmental policy and other issues. Generational and demographic change are likely to push the Democrats further in this direction, if anything, because younger and minority voters are strongly liberal on cultural issues.

Those voters have helped the Democrats win the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections. But without a broader base of support that lets Democrats win more votes in the South, it will be very hard for them to win back the House, and it may even be hard for them to win back the Senate.

It's that very "generational change" that will give the Democratic Party back both the House and the Senate. The issues you ascribe as "Liberal" such as gun control, gay rights, abortion and environmental policy are really common sense issues, which will simply gain popularity as the current octogenarian voting population succumbs to the inevitable and are replaced by children of the latter half of the 20th Century. Unless the Democratic Party makes the foolish short-term move backwards to try to woo elderly voters, that is. Time is on our side, as long as we stick to our core principles.

On that not-as-positive-as-I-wanted-it-to-sound note, here's your Onion:

Okay, on a scale of one to funny, that's about a nine. But it's still politics, so here's another:

:) I hate when that happens...




What a vile human being

There's a school of thought

that questions his humanity.
