Farm Animals Don't Actually Wear Makeup



I'll have my PR recap up this afternoon. In the meantime, I believe I am ready to predict the final three: LeAnne, Korto and Joe. Discuss.

Now, a political observation:

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

Birds of a feather flock together.

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck.

These are all common expressions, used to illustrate various points. Within the context of a political discussion on the economy or the war or immigration (for example), they are benign. Lift them out of context, however, and they are obviously a huge slam at Sarah Palin. Because she's touchy like that.

Big baby with her false outrage.

I agree on your final 3.

So glad Terri is gone. "he walked out on me, whine whine whine..." Watch the tape honey, you pushed him away.

Re: politics, and the rest of life for that matter: double standards. applies to me, not to you.

You can't really blame the Mccain camp you know.
If they had to campaign on the actual issues,they'd be screwed!
You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear after all.

The Mccrybabies are just using the avoid and "oh my gosh did you just hear what he said?" tactics. Commonly known as we really don't have any new ideas, so we will scrutinize you if you make fun of our bridge to nowhere, pitbull, pray the gay away VP! If you don't make fun of her we will take what ever you say and call it sexist.

Also, if we use the expression "drunk as a skunk," will McCain's camp whine about us calling Sarah Palin a skunk? Or a drunk? :)

Anne, right? That woman was getting way too mean. I won't miss her.

Too right, Sling. And I noticed those giant pig ears, too.

Should be right, Mols. I'll check it.

Sage, that whole "ooh, how sexist" thing is really annoying the crap out of me, especially coming from the party that has been doing everything it can to keep women "in their place". Word to Sarah, I'm not voting for you. It's not because you're a woman. It's because your politics scare the frak out of me. Thank you.

Crazy like a loon, Lost. Now I've probably pissed her off again for being anti-loon. Except she probably likes to hunt loons with her AK47.

MHP, you KNOW they will.

She is not outraged. She is trying to make something our of nothing and divert everyone from anything important.

I don't even know what the Lipstick Doctrine is, but I am willing to attack Russia if New Zealand bombs Equador.

Mom, yep. If you can't win on the merits of the case...

Iwanski, well, sure...but that's just sound foreign policy.
