    Bike: [Talking to self] Of all the bicycles in all the towns in all the world, he choses me.

    Chrissy: You know, Bike, I have many a friend in this town, but somehow, just because you despise me, you are the only one I trust.

    Chrissy: What kind of man is POTUS?

    Bike: Oh, he’s just like any other man, only so much more so.

    Bike: Might as well be frank, Chrissy, it would take a miracle to get you high ratings on MSNBC, and the GOP baggers have outlawed miracles.

    Chrissy: Well, they don’t know me.

    Bike: Things are never so bad they that can’t be made worse. Just look at your show. You owe the public better than that.

    Chrissy: That’s your opinion. The only thing that I owe the public is a good performance.

    Bike: A week old hot dog in the garbage can is better than your show.

    Chrissy: I take offense… Remember, you are only made out of metal.

    Bike: Here’s looking at you kid. I’m outta here.

    Chrissy: Okay. Don’t leave. We can work this out.

    (Andrea Mitchell) Just a little Halloween trivia for you. Alan is 21 years older than I am, but that gave him 21 additional years to earn all this nice money before I married him. So, I guess you could say my lucky number is 21. Trick or treat!

Anyhoo—–I’m using it for all my speeches—verbatim—hahaha— at Liberty U. and similar kooky religious institutions which really dig my kookiness. It’s got all this kooky info which I just love and pass along—-scary death panel stuff also some Bad stuff about Obama, B-A-D, which I like to share with my tea party peeps. They eat it up. Speaking of kooky—I was once called Too Kooky for Kentucky—-can you believe it? That’s kooky! But I got my low info tea party base to show up and vote for me, and here I am, too kooky in the senate. I’m in kind of a kooky race with my bud, Ted Kruz, on who can out kooky the other. I think he’s winning, but I’ve got time. Obama’s going to euthanize all the ugly people. See? I can win this thing! We’re both filibusterin’ freaks, but I can outlast him any day—-he had to resort to reading Green Eggs and Ham, I’ve got that super secret source and can read from there forever.

Before you look it up, I’ll tell you what it says though. It says, hey, if it was good enough for God, scribbling on the palm of his hand, it’s good enough for me, for us.

    Super Spy, Edward Snowden, reporting. I send all TOD family members my late Halloween greetings from the Free Democratic Republic of Russia, the world’s most free country in the world except for gays and the people who disagree with our leader, freedom fighter, Putin. I apologize for coming to the party late. I had all day meetings with freedom fighter Putin and talked extensively with freedom fighters Greenwald, David Sirota, the Brazilian President, the German Chancellor, the editors at the Guardian, NYT, WP, as well freedom fighters Papa Paul and Baby Paul.

    Today, I gave more documents to my brother, freedom fighter, Glenn Greenwald, which I liberated from the evil NSA. These documents will be a bombshell. They will show that the NSA was spying on Iraq and Saddam Houssein, going as far as back as 1990, before the evil U.S. government launched the war it called Desert storm. Guess what, Barack Obama is deeply implicated. Although he had not yet run for office he was getting information from NSA because he was already being groomed by the corporate masters to become President. So, more revelations to come. Stay tuned.

    Finally, I urge all my American freedom fighters to runaway from the evil America and join me in the FreeDemocratic Republic of Russia. If you can’t make to Russia, consider Free China, Free Bolivia and Free Venezuela. Or, you can join my brother freedom fighter Glenn in Free Brazil.
    Thinking about you on Halloween and your loss of freedom and privacy as a result of the evil NSA. I am sure NSA would have loved to see how TOD heard from me, but I made sure to communicate with you through heavily encrypted secure channels.

    P.S. (Sorry Hopefrui/Chipstickst. I’ve been missing in action. I had a very hectic day. I have not even had a chance to read ealier posts. Right now I am getting ready for an evening class. By the time I get out most of the people on the East Coast will probably be sleeping. I hope every one at TOD had a wonderful day. I hope to read the previous posts when I get home tonight.)

        Hello Sister Sarah,you must be talking to my brother freedom fighter Glenn otherwise how did you know tha that I have documents showing NSA spying on you while you were observing my dear leader, freedom fighter, Val Putin? But then again, it could be freedom fighter Rand Paul who also knows about this. Sorry I couldn’t release that document because Val Putin wanted to keep it a secret. For some reasons, he thinks you are a very shallow person and doesn’t want to give you any help winning GOP presidential nomination in 2016. Right now his preferred candidate for the Presidency (I must say he is my preferred candidate too) is freedom fighter Rand Paul. Val Putin doesn’t trust any one who has had any association with war monger John McCain who advocated a war with the Free Democratic Republic of Russia over traitor Georgia. Just so you know, Sarah, he means Georgia the country not the state of Georgia.

        A4alice, I am ready to help if you do the following: Stop being such an Obot and start praising my brother freedom fighter Glenn Greenwald. I monitor all your pro-Obama tweets and they are disgusting. How can you be so loyal to the worst dictator the world has ever seen who spies on innocent people all over the world?

    Remember when Harry Reid announced that GGail’s alterego R-money paid no taxes? At the time TODville speculated that Jon Hunstman Sr. was the source (both powerful Mormons in Utah). Well, it look like he was the source.

    Mark “Dick” Halperin and John Heilmann’s new book is another gossip-filled tome.

    This tweet links to page 2 of the article; link to the full article is below tweet:


    Here’s my response to @DavidGregory and @MeetThePress about R-money’s appearance (ran out of room to include Chips, the source of my response):

      RMoney here….what’s with this sudden fascination with my taxes tonight? Move along people….nothing here!!!

      No one stops to ask me how I’m feeling, how’s the wife? Nooo, taxes!! Food Stamps!!! 47%!!!!

    Details of the book were released by The New York Times on Thursday.

    Huntsman, per Heilmann and Halperin, was simultaneously assuring White House officials that he was not planning to leave his post as ambassador to run for president while, at the same time, meeting with campaign strategists.

    Huntsman’s wife, Mary Kaye Huntsman, meanwhile, was exchanging emails with one of Huntsman’s future presidential consultants but would only refer to the former governor as “HE” as a precaution, according to the book.

    Huntsman would eventually leave the White House to run for president but his campaign never gained momentum and he eventually dropped out.

    How did that presidential bid work out? Can’t lie and full MOTHER Nature as that Commercial stated years ago. Now Jon Huntsman Sr was the man who told Reid that Willard Romney didn’t pay taxes for 10 yrs…… πŸ˜‰

      I didn’t like what I read in the first paragraph of the NYT’s. Halperin and his friend wrote gossip. I peed on their leg for what they wrote about VPOTUS. GRRRR.

      (InaneKnoller) I TOLD you about that earlier (~comment #80)! Of course she didn’t turn me down – she never even noticed me long enough for me to ask! And I chose that picture of her at the hearing because I like her eyes, okay? I couldn’t have chosen one of the ugly male faces you accused me of earlier because I never even noticed them. Give me a break!

    (Andrea Mitchell) Finally. Alan has agreed to call himself Alan Mitchell. We decided to make the change because John King at CNN reported that our President is going to start going by the name Barack Hussein Robinson. Seems like a trend, and we’re trendsetters, so …

    Don Lemon here. Just found out I was part of this forum. I’ve been very busy in consultation with Bill O’Reilly. We’ve just concluded our next twin series: ” Pissing Off the Black Community – Part II ”
    Bill will go first, then I will give my approval and really piss more people off. Did I tell you I used to live in his neighborhood? They don’t litter the streets there. At least I don’t think so. EVERYTIME I went out to take a walk, I didn’t see a soul. But when they did come out ( I would see them through my window) to take their walks, they absolutely did not litter. They really are so much better than blacks. I just wish I could have gotten to know just one of them. But we never managed to walk at the same time. When I did, I didn’t litter, though.that’s part of why I am so successful.

      China now has more Middle Classers than our total population in US. China has built Speed rails. They have Cash. They are trying to be Us and better. Their gov’t invests and tries to keep 1.3B content. Perhaps, Bachmann should move to China now?

      Bachmann is a disgrace.

      Eric Cantor here: Mr. President, we will never get out of debt if you keep this habit of giving away more government candy to little children. This teaches them that they can just come to the White House and get candy every year on the last day in Oct. Please Mr. President, this just cannot continue to occur. These kids need jobs. Where are the jobs, Mr. President? Where are the jobs, Mr. President? HZ

    Cooch checking in. Sorry I’m late to the party……

    The campaign trail can be so time consuming. As you know, I am in a tough race for the governorship of Virginia. Previous attorneys general who have run for governor have resigned. But not me, I didn’t see any problems with continuing my job as AG while running for governor. Seriously, what’s the big deal. Where’s the conflict interest? The fact that my office may have to rule on any voting irregularities should not be a cause for alarm. And those voter purges just in time for the election are purely coincidental. /snark/

  38. October 31, 2013 at 10:11 pm

    Okay, obviously the Halloween party made a big dent in my neurons because here I am being Michelle Rhee when I was assigned Michelle MALKIN!!!!!! I think it’s bedtime ::slinks away with tail hanging low…::
