Ain't he sumthin'? (The writer, I mean, not the candidate.)

I try to stay away from the politics on Facebook, but I'm thinking that one might get posted. Along with the question for all my Mormon family and friends - why is his lying ok? I was raised in that church, and I was taught that the lying like that was a BAD THING.

I must admit, if I were still a practicing Mormon, I'd be PISSED at that fuckwit for making the religion look as bad as he does. Soulless, heartless, uncaring, out of touch, lying and manipulative to achieve his goals - this is the face they want on their religion? Hell, I'm pissed on behalf of my very devout Mormon mother, who is NONE of those things.

Pierce is awesome though. Just awesome. Second best writer on the web - after our A, of course.

the anti FDR. i finally recognized mittens. nixon w/ hair + a nose job.

Athenae: "mortgaged himself to his ambition on an adjustable rate, and that he's underwater on his soul". What a beautiful little morsel of creative writing! It perfectly describes Romney, who is as adjustable as they come. I've tried to keep up with your blogs ever since I stumbled on to your open letter to Kathleen Parker, which I consider a masterpiece.

on a tangent: here in NE Missouri where the TV station also covers SE Iowa

Just saw an ad by Gingrich where he takes credit for creating 11 million jobs, reforming welfare, etc. I assume he means as a congress critter while introducing civiility into congress in the 1990s ? Ad actually is saying "Gingrich created.... Gingrich reformed welfare....." etc.

And Al Gore only invented the Internet.

Not to mention that Gore didn't actually think that he and he alone invented it.
