    We all love children. But we grow into adults and we have to care for future generations and we have critical responsibilities to them. We grow out of our right to be childish and cling to a PROFOUNDLY CHILDISH VIEW OF THE WORLD. Fortunately alomost all of us do that. Have you noticed that compared against the vast breadth of our great country the teabag party is very, very small?

    Good Ad. After the GOP debate, I knew the dems would have more than enough material to point our the ludicrousness, lack of leadership, prevalence of worn out talking points that is the GOP presidential candidates. #ThankYouMoronicGOPTeabaggers for providing the dems and the Obama campaign team with campaign ads galore.

    That debate handed the world the BEST sound bite EVER! I bet this question went AROUND the world. It’s something that can’t be taken back. No siree, it’s out there!

      To bad Rick Perry wasn’t there so that he could have been on camera raising his hand. He will do and say anything to try and hoodwink an answer to this question.

    We’ve been on this path since:

    Since Jeff Davis resigned from the US Senate and created the most profound act of terrorism in American history (until now);

    Since Ronald Reagan picked up the baton dropped by Barry Goldwater and began an unapologetic attack on the social compact created by FDR and Harry Truman;

    Since the Supreme Court stole an Election and anointed George Bush;

    Since George and Dick and Rummy and Condi lied to the world and launched an illegal war on the Sovereign Nation of Iraq (a charged it on their Chinese credit card);

    Since the Supreme Court allowed unrestrained corporate and special interest financing of Elections;

    Since the Radical Republican Party began doing everything it could in Jan 2009 to wreck the American economy;

    Since the same Radical Republican Party took the Republic to the brink of fiscal catastrophe a mere 13 days ago ….

    Oh, yes, the savageness of the ultra-wealthy, unbounded in their bigotry and disregard for ‘the least of me,’ all the while chanting in the name of Jesus as they trounce on everyone except their country club buddies, have been unrelenting in their avarice and their treason.

    In 2012, we deliver a defeat more permanent and more profound than when Lee surrendered at Appomattox Court House in April, 1865.

    BTW – as others have noted – it’s great to have Warren Buffett on the side of the Republic – http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/15/opinion/stop-coddling-the-super-rich.html

    Love how they branded all those people as being part of the very unpopular TeaParty. That’s not gonna look good on a resumé.

        (I’m not sensitive but … ) On behalf of my body and others like it, thank you, Tien Le.

        Just stating an observation. She had lost a lot of weight and it was a story a year or so ago – I haven’t seen her in a while.

        I’ll assume you’ll be around to defend Chris Christie when his svelteness is mocked and ridiculed. Or is it only women that are off-limits? Because I believe there was a thread here when that whole helicoptering to his sons baseball game and driving 100 yards to the field pics that was one insult after another. And I didn’t even insult Candy, just made an observation from a five second clip.
