... However, since my personal experiences with Democratic Party components (Blacks, Feminists, Drug Culture figures, Hispanics, and Media Personalities) has left me with the opinion that each are currently power mad and, when furthering their interests, are quite abusive in their speech and tact,  I probably just won't vote, period.  ...

The Top Ten Issues I have With This Sentence:

10.  I live in the East Village.  Take away the Blacks, Feminists, Drug Culture figures, Hispanics, and Media Personalities and who do you have left?  A bunch of slow white boys who can't jump, that's who.

9.  My SO is a feminist woman of color.  She is only power mad in the bedroom.

8.  Don't be such a pussy.

7.  You left out the GAYS, THE GAYS!!!

6.  Dude.  I say Dude because my head hurts thinking of the possibility you might not be a Dude.

5.  Do you really meet lots of Media Personalities?  I bet they swoon in the electric field of your charm.  

4.  Michelle Obama must make your head explode.  (I'd like to see that.)

3.  By Drug Culture figures, are you referring to Rush Limbaugh?

2.  We ARE power mad.  We want to take away your AK-47.

...and the top issue I have with this sentence is:

David Koch & Mitt Romney ARE power mad.

That poster is not Dude.  Would not recognize Dude if Dudeness introduced itself to him/her.  

P.s.:  tz, I appreciate your sentiments, but I am not sure your sentence is free of unfortunate implications redounding upon yourself.

I heart Bill Clinton.

My two favorite quotes:

"I want the man who had the good sense to marry Michelle Obama" to be my next president.

and

"Poverty, discrimination, and ignorance restrict growth"

Classical economic theory from the liberals? Crazypants!!!

And did y'all see the quick camera shot on Chelsea? She looks fab! She's grown into a lovely young woman - poor thing who was all braces and frizzed hair in middle school.

Shhhh. Bill Clinton's coming on.

Finally it appears everyone realizes how great he was.

I would have voted for him a million more times.

I hope not, for her sake -- and that of even more young women who could be as discouraged as many whom I taught in that fall of four years ago.  Another appalling display of sexism and misogyny, and by both parties, we do not need.

And they, the fools who talk of "crankles" and nutcrackers, had their chance.

I hope that she realizes her longtime goal of a foundation to continue to work for women and girls, worldwide.



But, yes, nobody but nobody does it like the Big Dawg.  The only pol I tuned in to hear, because he always teaches me.

Bill is in rare form.  He's making a moving, personal, vigorous defense of government programs that help people and provide opportunities.

Very effective.

Really poked fun at Ryan.  Devastating.

In answer to the GOP question, yes, I was better off in 2008.  In 2008, I had never heard of Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Todd Akin or Paul Ryan and my world was a kinder, gentler and better place because of that.

Next time I see Mittens in a close up shot, I want to take a long, careful look into his eyes.  I'll wager ten thousand quatloos that if I look closely enough, I'll be able to see all those little green numbers in the Matrix running up and down back there.

In my opinion, Secundem_artem is precisely correct. 

I think secundem_artem, rather, has hit the nail on the head.

Watching live on the BBC. Former President Clinton is on fire.

That's how you talk to people, not to your handlers/spin doctors.

He's got dead eyes.

I admire your first paragraph immensely.

Wow - he really ended on a long string of powerful high-notes.
