Re: Worst of TDPF

That's the last straw, as far as I'm concerned. Bye.

Re: Republican debates

Trump is apparently very not happy with the questions Megyn Kelly asked him. From the Washington Post: Trump tweeted -- and retweeted other angry late-night Twitter users -- more than 30 times between roughly 2:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. Many of those tweets mentioned Megyn Kelly or her debate co-hosts N...

Re: The Republican clown car is getting crowded

Somebody is writing off Iowa ... Christie's abrasiveness is bad enough that it looks like he won't seriously compete in the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, where voters aren't used to politicians shouting them down at town hall meetings. Instead, Christie's focused on New Hampshire, as top Christ...

Re: Outdoor spigot etiquette

I dunno. First, just to get this out of the way, I think trespassing and using someone else's spigot is rude, and by no means do I endorse it. But that said, if this was a rare occurrence and it was small amounts of water, and there were no other related problems, I'd probably shrug it off. If it we...

Re: WORLD'S GREATEST CONSPIRACY THEORY!!1!

What I find a bit strange is that the attempt to discredit Donald Trump by linking him to Bill Clinton isn't coming from establishment Republicans trying to slow his momentum but from Trump's own team. Very odd. Yes, exactly. WTF kind of n-dimensional chess is this? If it were just one person in Tr...

Re: WORLD'S GREATEST CONSPIRACY THEORY!!1!

What we've come to? Been here for a long time. Do you think so? It seems relatively new to me, at least in the US. The 2012 Republican primaries were somewhat similar, with fundamentally silly people like Bachmann and Cain and Gingrich (not to mention Trump himself) occupying first or second place ...

Re: Scott Walker's personal finances

If you're responding to me, dogmeat, then you're way off track. I don't have any particular interest in Walker's personal finances. I just think you don't quite grasp the meaning of the expression "red herring". That's all. A red herring is something that distracts. I don't think his pers...

Re: Scott Walker's personal finances

I think Walker should be judged on his record in office. If he did a terrible job managing his own finances but was being a prudent, wise, effective leader of state government, that ought to be good enough for anyone (outside his own immediate family and friends). Contrariwise, if he is mismanaging ...

Re: Scott Walker's personal finances

In the end his financial situation is not the red herring some here are pretending it to be.

Um, OK...
