Clap. Clap. Clap.

Yeah. It's not sexist at all to live off your spouse.

Oh, that's it! I should have said "spouse!" Damn. I'm sorry. I'll be more careful when I accuse a sponger of sponging.

Or would "If your partner is paying the bills I bet it's an even greater country" have been more appropriate? I want to get it right. Because when I accuse somebody of living off somebody else, I definitely want to be correct.

Woops. I forgot "mate." Thanks, j.

But you did say "wife" didn't ya Rabs?

Nice tap dance though.

So he has to lie to win the primary. Sounds like he has the ethics of a Walker.


No, he doesn't have to lie. He has to promise stuff he doesn't want to to get elected. The Tea Party crowd will vote him out after 1 term if he strays from their ideals that he is spouting.

Tommy knows that he probably wins the general easily if he didn't have to "pledge" items to win the primary. Tommy couldn't even get the backing of the Wisconsin Republican Party after being our governor for years and years and years. That is telling of how far right the Rs have gone.

Yeah. Cause everybody knows, it's sexist to call a wife a wife.

You know what they say about holes, dog. Keep diggin.

I have an idea. Since you're apparently seeing something where I do not, how about you splain to me why saying "living off your wife" is sexist, but "living off your female spouse" is not.

You can use big words. I have a dictionary.

Nope. Explain exactly why that was sexist or take it back.

Or I'll bring it up every time you and I tangle.

Who is saying any of those things are *automatically* true?

And something can still be true in certain cases without being *automatically* true, right?


Are these things true in the case of Mitt Romney? I would argue that no one really knows. They see that he inherited money and assume he's a deusche.

Inquiring minds want to know.

What if the statement included "spouse" or "mate" or "partner" instead?

Douche, perhaps?

If nothing else, there have been plenty of incidents that have portrayed Romney as out of touch. Like getting excited about touch screens for ordering sandwiches or saying how he likes the height of trees.

U.S. Senate hopeful Neumann releases first television ad

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mark Neumann is targeting President Barack Obama in his first television ad of the campaign, rather than any of his three GOP challengers.

Neumann's ad airing statewide starting Tuesday targets Obama's health care overhaul law, which was recently upheld as constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. The ad doesn't mention Neumann's primary opponents: former Gov. Tommy Thompson, hedge fund manager Eric Hovde and state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald.

Neumann is far behind in the polls, so it looks like he is just running this ad for The Cause.

If you get enough video on anyone you can make them look like an ass. Romney is certainly very in-touch where it counts: Our economy

I know I started this tangent when I compared Hovde to Romney, but if all we are going is discussing is Willard, let's move it to the National Politics and Government area. Maybe just add to this thread.
