Via RCP. When you put it that way, maybe Obama should pardon him.

What does that even mean?

Is this a reference to oral sex? Or is he talking about blowing up the country? I don’t really get it.

I think the phrase you were overreaching for was ‘blew town’ Davey boy. And here’s a tip for nothing; shave those sad stray strands of hair off your head. Admit follicle defeat and go full Carville. Sure it’s more face to wash, but you’ll look less like a sad sack in denial. There isn’t even enough there for a comb-over.

Given his political leanings, I think David is uncomfortable suddenly finding himself on the side of defending the NSA and intelligence gathering efforts he was against back in his college days during and after Watergate. So he tried to throw in a bit of a double-entendre here to so that even though he’s gone from protesting The Man to being the No. 1 MSNBC mouthpiece for The Man, he’s still a hip sort of guy.

Exactly.

Not sure how it’s possible but he looks even sleazier than when he had the stache.

He certainly butchered that old phrase. “Yeah, Mugsy. He split for the coast, scrammed, took a powder, went on the lam, made himself scarce…

Yeah, mouthpiece.

Obama’s mad because Snowden didn’t blow him.

My son called mine “Gilligan’s Island”. I kept my hair short (being military or associated therewith), but he still mocked it. I finally did shave it.

Are you sure those words didn’t come from Ron Jeremy?

Now that’s funny! :)

Can someone please explain to me how we lost to these idiots…?

Now he just looks like a goofball. Axelrod was more credible when he had that Stalin thing going on.

RadClown on June 11, 2013 at 2:38 PM

Who knew David was actually Biff?

Here’s a few more we’re likely to see from good ol’ Scragglehair:

Make like a tree and get outta here.
As funny as a screen door on a battleship.
I’m not one to look a gift horse in the butt.
It’s time to race the music.
Have a nice trip! See you next WINTER!!

Though my favorite will hopefully when the Impeachment(s) start is when David will go:

Read it and cry
