So much for the swamp, I guess.
So much for the swamp, I guess.
That, right there, is one very useful phrase, I'll have to admit. I've used it in all kinds of contexts, and for different effects, and it works great. It's like a rhetorical swiss army knife.
Moving on, talk about getting shafted! I'm glad my political gambling is a hobby, not an addiction, cuz Cheeto Mussolini just fucked me out of 5K. Although I'm even more glad of my Senate side bet since it helps take the sting out of it.
Congratulations to all the Republicans out there! It's been exhausting work pretending to care about the deficit, unemployment numbers, and whether or not the rest of the world thinks the US is a laughingstock, so I'm sure you'll all be glad for the break.
Last but not least, commiserations to all the kids out there, the ones who'll get punched repeatedly in the face as they struggle through life because global warming as a solvable problem is gone for at least a generation, whilst us Boomers and Gen Xers get to pop our clogs before the really bad shit starts. Time to start volunteering for those Mars missions, I guess.
For any non-Yanks out there, there is a small silver lining: Between, incompetence, corruption, and taking advantage of these historic circumstances to finally bury the Dem party forever, the incoming administration may be too busy trying to fuck over the US to have any time to fuck over the rest of the planet any more than they have already have. Fingers crossed!
don't dare ask for details when a good conspiracy is on the line

JustNiz (692889) has made you their foe.
If you want to see the details of my one-and-only interaction with him - and witness the fury of his war on truth and logic - start with Shanen's JE . I didn't go in knowing that Mr Niz was the troll in question, but he certainly supported that identification of him as a troll by the time he gave up.
Waste my time? Yes, he did. Make me mad? No, he did not. We have a small army of similarly-aligned conservatives here, I see that narrative all the time.
information regarding the presidential election "every week for the next 10 weeks."
Which if my calendar is correct puts us at the week of December 13th.

Not that having a spinal column was ever a regular feature of your average politician, but the absolute cluelessness of major UK political figures in the last couple of days is stunning. As far as I can tell, only Nicola Sturgeon has managed to avoid dumping large amounts of shit on herself.
Personally, I lay a lot of the blame at Tony Blair's feet. If he'd hadn't been such a mendacious prick, most of the current crop of British pols wouldn't even exist today.
There was also a response from the democrats that got a little attention as well:
I'm still waiting for someone to post a new "smoking gun" to the front page of slashdot in response to all of this. I'd be surprised if there isn't a breitbart or newsmax link on this on the slashdot front page by mid-afternoon.
