    I’m so going to have a gimlet when I get home.

    And the perfect gimlet? Juice of 4 key limes, 2 oz. gin, a splash of simple syrup. Shake in a shaker with ice. Pour in a chilled martini glass. Heaven.

    Well, I see I’m back to my usual pattern: Post something at the bottom of the thread right after a new one opens! πŸ™‚

        Yup..he didn’t deliver the goods for the GOP, so they probably ditched his arse. Now he runs to the DEM party for shelter….I’ve seen this movie before, and I gave it a terrible review, as I’m giving this one.

        Or maybe he finally got tired of all the racism. His letter is very interesting.

    Very under reported important election happened over the weekend….the former PM who was overthrown by Musharaf is back in power!

      You are brilliant at your summaries UT/NW.
      Please let Dr Maddow know how wrong she is.
      At least she will correct her errors sometimes.

        She knows perfectly well what she is doing. She is feeding the fake controversy and misleading her viewers. She seems to have a bad habit of doing this. I remember her doing it on several occassions during the 2012 election (i.e., perpetuating false media narratives and betraying the trust her viewers place in her to accurately report the news). Trust Ms. Maddow at your own risk. Fool me once…….

    Congratulations LL.
    I have been peeking in last while when possible. Wow, I hope all those congress critters who are up in 2014 ALL get voted out. Why are those people in congress if not to do the people’s work, especially the ones who don’t even like govern’t? I just do not understand your voters.

    Since the Queen B, Dudette, is in the house….For those that missed it…..(the coolest astronaut since Buzz Aldrin) is returning to earth. He recorded this gem, among others! Chips, LL what do you think of his rendition? How bout the Bare Naked Ladies duet?

          What walks upright on two legs, with both arms free (sort of)? MP! yay! Tough Love in PT, but it is making a difference, and with working on exercises at home, I will be getting more and more mobility over the next few weeks….. I guess it’s a long process, but prognosis is for perfect health again!

            Except – woe is me… I was just ouside half an hour ago cleaning up the birdbaths as the wind has been staggering all afternoon (they need to drink before bedtime), and imagine there was my neighbors eff’ing CAT in MY yard (a.g.a.i.n), and so when I started to run on one crutch with the watering can in the other hand, yelling at that eff’er and banging the can on the fence…. WooHoo! Did that little bastard run! Alas, I torqued my knee quite badly, was very pleased it did not pop out of joint! So, the good thing is I know for sure it is healed, the not-so-good thing is if any of the neighbors heard me they are convinced now I am the neighborhood crazy lady! Oh well, it was quite a party for you Meta! And now I am in bed, hoping I can walk tomorrow! Pain pills are in place, yes indeed!

    Evening all –

    I hope everyone is doing well! Given overwhelming stupidity and idiocy from faux scandals, I thought I’d post a video of my 10 month old niece Sophie having dinner! She’s such a good baby, and when we take her out to restaurants, she’s so well behaved and eats nicely!


    I continue to pray for the health, strength, and patience for President Obama, given the GOP morons and bratty media he needs to deal with, he needs our support!

    Hmm, now I’m thinking this is all about AG Holder.

    @DavidShuster 8m

    The DOJ’s collection of AP phone records is outrageous and sickening. Mr. President, you must fire AG Holder. @TakeActionNews #freepress

    Like I said, GOP-led, Liberal Media-aided.

    And you know if Holder were to leave, then how soon before you see Holder/Van Jones/Shirley Sherrod comparisons?

    • 76 hopefruit2
      May 13, 2013 at 9:45 pm

      Well, they’re backing up the wrong tree. Holder ain’t going no where. They tried with Fast & Furious/Solyndra, and failed. They keep repeating these failed techniques, and failing.

  17. May 13, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    Tip of the hat sir! Earned some major respect from me…….only honest, self-assessment, I have heard in since Iraq!

    TOD, take a few minutes and an open mind…..for someone, at least attempting to do right.

    I watched a news show on our TV last night about Sandy Hook & US gun violence. It ended with an interview of a democrat member of the Connecticut legislature – as to how and why they passed their gun laws – it was good to hear something positive about gun control in the US

      These beoches just can’t wait to pile on. This is not the US Media, it should be called the GOP Media, thank goodness I do not watch cable misinformation anymore. These so called pundits and “journalists” are not stupid, they just think that the public is. They insult our intelligence every day.

    An 80 year old man was having his annual checkup, and the doctor asked him how he was feeling. “I’ve never been better!” he boasted.

    “I’ve got an eighteen year old bride who’s pregnant, and having my child! What do you think about that?”

    The doctor considered this for a moment, then said, “Let me tell you a story. I knew a guy who was an avid hunter. He never missed a season. But one day went out in a bit of a hurry, and he accidentally grabbed his umbrella instead of his gun.”

    The doctor continued, “So he was in the woods, and suddenly a grizzly bear appeared in front of him! He raised up his umbrella, pointed it at the bear, and squeezed the handle.”

    “And do you know what happened?”the doctor queried.

    Dumbfounded, the old man replied “No.”

    The doctor continued, “The bear dropped dead in front of him!”

    “That’s impossible!” exclaimed the old man. “Someone else must have shot that bear.”

    “That’s kind of what I’m getting at …” replied the doctor.

          I know exactly what you mean…..
          I saw him live at Radio City years go and I have not been the same.
          It was one big dance party. Hardly anyone was able to sit still…and the acoustics!
          I could not sleep for days….
          Absolutely love a musical genius..he gets better. I never thought of this until now,but he does not have to ever make a single new record. All of these are golden hits and headings them fresh as ever…..
          Is there any wonder Stevie Wonder helped to draw POTUS and FLOTUS together musically. It was all a setup. So whatever the repugs and rethugs have planned, it is not going to work.
          This is higher grounds stuff, too deep for them.
          Carry on Ms. Dudette. Please, proceed…..

    The Corporate Media has a button they push. Whenever they want to push a narrative, left or right, that button is pushed.
    MSNBC is terrible, but now David shuster, which means Current tv is involved?
