Fill in the blank:

“The point, of course, is this: If you have 51 votes for your position, you win,” _______ told his Senate colleagues on the floor.

He added, “Reconciliation is a rule of the Senate (that) has been used before for purposes exactly like this on numerous occasions… Is there something wrong with majority rules? I don’t think so.”

Harry Reid? President Obama? Nancy Pelosi?

THOSE PRO(FESSIONAL) TEACHERS

Filed on February 25, 2010 at 8:56 pm under by dcobranchi

I’m not really sure how to classify these two teachers. Exhibitionists? Probably. Morons? For sure.

I like that the school trustee thought that having one teacher bury his face in another teacher’s crotch as part of a school sanctioned “dance off” was “not good.”

SCREW SONY

Our PS2 died and Jonathan’s been itching for a PS3. I’d go for it except the current PS3 is not backwards compatible with PS2 games. We have way too many to trash.

Way to go, Sony! You lost a sale.

ZERO INTELLIGENCE

Drawing on a school desk can get a student arrested in NY. Can educrats be arrested for blinding stupidity?

I’M SHOCKED HE’S NOT FROM GREENVILLE

Filed on February 17, 2010 at 8:45 pm under by dcobranchi

My hometown of Greenville, SC has the highest concentration of conservative idiots in the world. Seriously, it’s not even close. That’s why I’m really surprised to learn that the SC legislator who proposed a bill that would ban Federal Reserve Notes from being accepted in the state and, instead, would make silver and gold coins the only legal tender is NOT from Greenville.

He’s from Laurens, a few miles away.

Who took the residents of FAY and replaced them with pod people? The folks who wrote today’s LttE surely aren’t the neighbors I’ve come to know and, umm, er, *cough*, know.

LEGALIZE IT!

I watched tonight an MSNBC “documentary” called Marijuana, Inc. A modern day Reefer Madness. The nadir was when some Bush era drug czar called pot a poison. Made we want to fire up a doob just to spite them.

WHO’S ON FIRST?

The latest Mr. Deity episode is sure to be a classic. What’s that? You don’t watch Mr. Deity? Take the time now to watch the show. You can thank me later when you have some time. :-)

GOD IS APPARENTLY A CONSERVATIVE IDIOT

Filed on February 4, 2010 at 8:20 pm under by dcobranchi

Why? Because he talks like this:

6Then God declared, “A great sheet-like expanse shall come between the waters, and it shall divide waters from waters!”

If the writers at conservapedia’s Bible project really believe in the all-powerfull vengeful kind of God, they ought to be quaking in their boots. I know if I were some kind of omnipotent being and some bunch of yahoos made me sound like a dork, I’d be smiting their ass, big time.

I’M NOT SURE I BUY IT

Prosecution != persecution

And I’m not sure that not being allowed to homeschool ought to be grounds for granting political asylum in the US.

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike are not like other asylum seekers, people fleeing war or torture in places like Afghanistan, Iraq or Somalia. They’re music teachers from a village in southern Germany. And yet, in what appears to be the first case of its kind, the couple and their five children were granted asylum in the U.S. last week by an immigration judge who ruled that they had a “well-founded fear of persecution” in their home country for engaging in what has become a popular albeit somewhat controversial American practice — homeschooling their children.
