Wait till I get to Congress.

He bops.

That one minute speech probably cost the nation $23,473.189.04. However, with the runaway waste that Congress endorses, my estimate may be too low.

As the doomsday clock ticks closer to midnight due to the current NoKo idiot, I take solace in 1980’s pop music singers by thinking of Cyndi Lauper.

I would have been impressed if he had died what little hair he had left a fluorescent pink.

Cyndi Lauper wasn’t hot even 30 years ago. Cohen looks like the second ugliest mamber of congress (next to Waxman).

Cyndi Lauper looks and acts retarded. Can I say “retarded” anymore?

Ahhh, Cyndi is the bomb. Obama is a bomb. Cohen is just a bum.

Leave it to Memphis to elect vicious politicians without fail. The last somewhat ok guy in that position was Harold Ford Jr. His father ease a vicious racist who once told me I was a” white devil out east” as in then predominantly white east Memphis.
