I have no idea actually. Ann’s real or imagined proclivities and CurpliTium motortrend set the tone.

Caught Saturday Night Live and the guy that does the news part had a lot of fun at the Republican’s expense. Knocked them about having Obama speak to them – they’re too ignorant and he’s so brilliant, or something like that. Then had someone as Sotomayor and the two of them made fun of Alito. I did think the skit about Scott Brown was funny, but I’m pretty sure they were making fun of him too.

I don’t like Henin because of the slimy move she pulled against Serena in the 2003 French Open.
As for Murray…no, I don’t think he will. He’s under intense pressure.

I will ask Manuel the next time I see him. Manuel is sure to know as he waits on Ed on a regular basis.

Anyone who finds 0bama brilliant at anything other than underhanded manipulation isn’t paying close attention. He is such an obnoxious control freak.

I don’t know what it is about Republican politicians and how they let themselves be treated like doormats, but if 0bama had spoken to me like he did them, I would have ripped into him for his terrible manners and horrible interpersonal communications skills. I’d love to see someone dress him down like that. He wouldn’t have a clue what to do.

Maybe because of a ‘we have to respect the Office of the Presidency’ kind of attitude? Whatever it is, it’s pathetic. Where’s their self-respect?

I agree, totally. People have been walking on egg-shells for way too long. Someone has to do this…call him out ON ANYTHING. Find out he knows virtually nothing about anything.

I maintain that if you respect the Office of the President, you must respect the United States. That is their problem. They do not respect America.

No, people like him who talk down to others the way he does need to have their faces pushed into their own rudeness so that they learn not to do it. People like him don’t learn any other way.

Well, what I was trying to say was that you gave a recap of the SNL show, and observed that they tore into and smeared the right. It is a comedy show. I was trying to parallel it with my neighbor, who only seems to watch comedy, and seems to get his daily dosage of news from Jon Stewart. Only an observation, of many on the left, who believe these spoofs to be facts.

When I think of Lefties, I think of morons like GrowFins, strangelet, simplesimon, Norman Blitzer, etc., people who are utterly incapable of rational discussion. But, even then, like some but not most schitzophrenics, they’ll find their way out of the wilderness.

I don’t see Ann as a Leftie; I see her as a fence-sitter i.e a Moderate. I think she is more open to reason than you do.

I wasn’t trying to imply anything. I do enjoy comedy, and I don’t care who is the scapegoat, unless it becomes a total mockery and won’t relent. I NEVER, EVER thought, for one second that you “got your news” from SNL. NEVER. Actually, I appreciated your contribution and was only comparing “my neighbor” with AnninCa.

Ann clearly isn’t like the trolls I mentioned. I can see that she thinks, but certainly not as much as she could/should. One of my groups of friends from high school is like that. They aren’t on the Right side, but they aren’t full-blown Lefties either.

I know many on the Right, like Rush, deny their existence, but they’re wrong – Moderates do indeed exist.

I don’t have anything of consequence to add to the conversation here, but it seems like a bunch of folks are fading out with the 1000-post goal so close.
Unless the “Ann’s pimento”-thing you were discussing is more of a deterrent than a ‘goal.’

So…. Any panda hostility here?
Or was that just an isolated incident?

Me, too. Off to bed I mean. AnninCa has consistently claimed absolute Love-in appreciation for the Clintons’(for some odd-unknown rationale}, shouts that she never voted for Obama, doesn’t give a shit on any topic other government than healthcare, then she goes bananas. Thinks this is a grand plan altogether, swings wildly around, and thunderously swings around, ending up with the sicko-leftist viewpoint.

Hardly nothing!
Barry went to a college basketball and apparently was willing to speak without the assistance of his pal Prompty. That kind of thing doesn’t happy just any old day.
Or were you implying that my Poseidon Adventure opining amounted to ‘nothing’? It’s OK. I’m open to debate on the merits of Borgnine putting down a different tone this time around.
