    Talking about congress makes me wonder, if they had lockers would senators
    start stuffing Ted Cruz in a locker?

    Not gonna lie though, the Flip the South Koreans did looked pretty sweet

    This race has become nothing more than a race to the bottom. I don’t care
    about Hillary’s emails and bout with pneumonia. I don’t care about Donald’s
    tax returns and release of his health records. I don’t care. All I want to
    see, is to have both sides, come out about their policy positions, and how
    they differ from the ones their opponent is proposing. But it looks like we
    won’t have that. They look like a couple of children fighting, blaming the
    other person for who knows what, and saying to the teacher, ‘They did it
    first.’ It makes you want to shake your head in shame and disbelief. It’s
    pathetic; every single drop of it.

    yep.. all this talk about ‘corruption’ is really just the new word for
    ‘cooperation’.. it’s somehow become a bad thing to try to make as many
    people happy as possible – y’know.. their jobs -. It’s funny how when she
    works with people, it’s considered some underhanded ‘cheating’.. and when
    he makes deals, it’s… ‘the best deal. Trust him. A yuge deal.’
    They aren’t even polite anymore. Not that that’s the worst bit.
    Soon enough, chairs will fly.. supplying Trump doesn’t get in, and
    immediately dare North Korea to hit us.

    As much as I agree with his sentiments, Bill has a lot of blame to shoulder
    here, too. He has been one of the biggest assholes on the left for the past
    decade and has contributed to this current climate of assholery.

    gotta love how this clip is on youtube, but not yet available on HBOGO.

    I don’t think he is like Hitler and I don’t like it when people say that. I
    would vote for Hillary I’m not defending him, but Hitler was like pure evil
    Trump is like a prick.

  10. Patrick Milewski says:

    if the governor of Maine called his opponent a “socialist cocksucker” it
    tells me two things: 1. socialism works (in conjunction with reasonably
    regulated capitalism) and 2. the governor is an asshole who is going to
    lose his seat in government.

  11. tmz85 says:

    Civility?! To expect Trump to rise above it all is naive. He thrives in
    chaos and classlessness. Poster boy for everything wrong with society; low
    information, thin-skin, narcissistic and just plain mean. Supporters seem
    to worship his anti-American value unconstitutional stance whilst spouting
    ‘Make America Great Again’.

    Bill you are the best, I wish there were more people like you…

    Exactly the reaction to political correctness has been to be a complete

    I have to remind myself that there is no difference between the people who
    enthusiastically cheered fights to the death in the Colliseum and us.

    That was Japan, not South Korea. And it happened several years ago.

    Too bad Gore cost Nader the election.

    “Ted Cruz filibustered Obama-care by reading Green Eggs and Ham, a book
    about how you might like something if you give it a chance.”

    Good god man…the irony…too rich…cant handle. Way too delicious for it
    to be fiction.

    On a partly related note, in elementary school they made green eggs and ham
    for lunch one day, Dr Seuss birthday i think. Few kids got the green eggs.
    I did and they tasted like…
    get ready for it
    *loud whisper* REGULAR EGGS…well regular school-food level eggs but still.

    Its just food coloring Sam you are…food coloring bro.
