Folks who give a damn about politics turn to FNC instead of CNN and MSNBC.

chucks

Of course Michelle Bachmann has never met the likes of joanie when she expresses ..."And the American people are very smart".
I was wondering when you would go after Bachmann, (R MN). She seems to be gaining prominence in the Republican party.
Of course she is just a lowly woman, mother of five, fostered over twenty. Probably seen many times in tennis shoes. How the heck can the people of Minnesota vote for such a woman to serve in Congress. We are so much smarter than those yokels.
Oh wait. Don't we have one just like her here?
Here we go again. Carry on Michael. Be a part of destroying another good person . Same old, same old.

AuthenticAndrew

Larry King is usually such a pushover. It was surprising to hear him laugh at her at the end there.

Cosnservatives buy into that kind of bright, shiny object logic. There is no group of people more oblivious to logical fallacy than the religious right because religion is itself a logical fallacy clusterfuck of epic proportions.

The radical talkers definately don't represent the right. Obama's approval is hovering in the center and he hasn't even done anything. As soon as some health care reforms touch pavement I'm certain the approval will begin to climb among liberals and conservatives alike.

AuthenticAndrew

chucks you have no place critiquing the intelligence of others.

mrogi

Michelle Bachmann has 5 children and 23 foster children. It is miraculous she manages to look like MILF.

AuthenticAndrew

Hmm, how very uncalled for. Well at least she's good for something other than spreading misinformation and producing spawn.

Drew

Harper was right- it's "entertainment" that is found on FNC, not news (even Bachmann's heroes keep running to the "entertainer" umbrella when they get caught in a lie or some other episode of lack of credibility, because they know they will never pass a litmus test as journalists.
Bachmann also exercised a very typical escape commonly found in cons- if the question is too uncomfortable to answer, diversion is the key. In a surprising move by King, he asked Bachmann if her empty suited heroes from con-talk should represent the GOP, and she knows that it's time to run for the exit. She made multiple attempts to escape and evade, to no avail.

Mack's dad

Five children? Palin with how many- 10? What is it with these good looking Republican women? They multiply like toad-mice, yet there's so few of them.

Drew

Yes. Mark Foley wanted kids too. He was caught trying to special-order them online.

joanie

Spawns children, "probably" wears tennis shows?

All the qualifications to be a politician.

If you're a woman.

On the right.


Let's all enjoy a group laugh!

M.Steele

Bachmann is doing the con crazy for the attention. Chucks is a great example of how she and her ilk attract the dim witted. Observe his commit, “It is miraculous she manages to look like MILF”. It is as if her looks compensate for her fanatical screeds.

Can you imagine Chucks in a passionate embrace with a woman and his request for her to talk dirty to him?


M.Steele

Hey, what’s with the icons?

Coiler

You have 2 distinct ones...

chucks

That was not my comment Steele. There is no sexual inuendo in my post either express or implied.
I do not make derogatory comments about moms. Never have.
(if joanie is a mom, which I doubt very much as that would have meant some poor man has had to have touched her, she is the exception and that is only because she really likes and encourages it. If she were a civilized human, she would get none of it from me)

chucks

Bla'M must have taken the thousands of dollars we sent in this last week to put in icons to class up the joint.
Probably got himself a new Porche as well.
But if you look real close in the middle, they have secret hi tech cameras so he can see us blogging in our undies.

M.Steele

Ohh, sorry Chucks. You have the same icon as mrogi. Do excuse me for the mix up. But the premise lays at the feet of you cons. You love her look, how about the message?

How the heck did you know i was in my undies?

chucks

I'm a real Steele, I'll never get caught red handed.
I know that this will shock you, but she and I agree on a lot. Don't know her well enough to say that I agree on all. But then my wife and I don't agree on all.

joanie

It is always about sex for you. That's exactly our point. Can you make any point without turning it into a sexual slander?

Another group laugh.

joanie

My icon looks like the Liberty Bell in a horizontal mode. And blue is my color. It matches my gorgeous blue eyes.

M.Steele

Yes Coiler, you caught that. If you feel curious, as did I, history will enlighten you. I know when I took the trip through the annals, I became more enlightened.

chucks

Hey Steele, I see that your 9:36 comment has the same icon as I have. Does that mean your are leaning my way? A little?
Ye, I didn't think so.

M.Steele

You do not have to convince me chucks. I know you are real….

And no, you do not have to take credit in my ability to shed the icon. My guess is you can no easily shed that icon as mrogi can.

sparky

what is the connection between names and icond??

Mark Question

I don’t think steele wanted to answer that.

Plato

Bachmann is a politician worst than those accumulating monies day to day for reelection. She is one that will use race bating and panic to take advantage of the dread of her followers. She is the worst of politicians, a charlatan hell bent for power.

Drew

Yes, Bachmann is as bad as Palin, and both represent the "new" republican party, whose followers can't think past the shallow surface. Someday they'll have to admit they were wrong to think you can drag a non-running Corvair out of the wrecking yard, put 5 coats of glossy enamel on it, and it's still just a piece of shit car that nobody in their right mind will ride in.

Grand Oligarh

Would you ride that car chucks?

chimchim

Why state the obvious? Let the cons heard the republicans into a dark corner? If they use stupid and fear to gather these folks together, more power to them. We don’t use these tactics and therefore we don’t have the chicken shits in our party.

mrogi

Michelle Bachmann has a nice chassis for a woman who has dropped 5 sprogs. I'd love to take a ride in her jalopy.

M.Steele

Have I been banned? I can not post.

Drew

My concern is the independents who don't have a lot of time in their busy 2.5 jobs life to listen to real news stories. Instead, if they're flippin' across the teevee dial and hear Bachmann mention internment camps for republicans and death panels for elderly, they believe it. Even though the cons know she's lying, not one will stand up and say so, because the party eats their own at a time like that. And allowing her to continue further pushes the fear agenda onto the public. It worked in 2002, and it'll be Democrats and Republicans with some sense of decency that have to step up and call them on it.

choo

Crazy, no one understands it but them, that’s why they attract the ugly women.

M.Steele

Good bye all

AuthenticAndrew

So the comments are messed up for 48 hours and all we have to show for it is little satanical images on the side that add nothing of value?

Drew

No, we also have a working blog. I would have liked it better if we could somehow pick an image to go there. Mine kinda looks like Katrina on a Spirograph. I would have preferred the pic of Tim Eyman getting arrested by Yakima PD. Or that look on Palin's mug when when asked the really tough question, "What magazines or newspapers do you like to read?"

KS

Hard to trust these posts - there is always a different version to these stories than the Lib Prog blogs show. It's called the true story. Sad but true...

Puget Sound

just want to check my icon.

KS, I would have guessed that your icon would be a pirates flag.

Nom du plop

Tis’ strange PS, your icon is the same as joanie.

And KS, you still blither like an idiot.

AuthenticAndrew

the icons are random

sparky

Mine is always the same

Watcher

not necessarily, it looks like it is linked to your ip. by the way you and Coiler have the same icon.

joanie

Yes, mine has always been the same, too. I want the pink one. Steele has gotten several icons, I think.

joanie

Anybody see "Maddow Calls Out Americans for Prosperity President: ‘Parasite Who Gets Fat On Americans’ Fears"

He kept a smile on his face but it was the smile of a man who was thinking: no matter what you say, the far-right fools out there will believe me. Cuz they're stoopid.

M.Steele

Truer words have never been typed.

Curious minds

Joanie, are you also Puget Sound?

joanie

Hahaha. I've been outed!

AuthenticAndrew

oh, that's pretty clever.

capcha

This exercise is going in bad direction.

Coiler

Yes, she said tonight that she thought about the statement and still thinks he is a parasite.

joanie

You're an old sourpuss, Andrew.

Rachel tells it straight. I love that. I think kent has upped the quality of his commentaries, too.
