  1. Watching them on television (heck, just streaming the radio) makes me old.

    I think the distinction is between "a President fighting a war" and "a President who's fleeing a war that he claims we won, so fast that we're bombing our own weapons and ammo because we don't have time to take them with us".
  3. Seriously? Warren is "failing the Commander in Chief test" if she cannot instantly come up with a detailed plan to fix the disaster Trump is still in the process of creating? Could you please point us at the candidate which you would consider acceptable, using the same test?

    I'm imagining a t-shirt for him: It DOES mean what I think it means, dammit! (And you got his name backwards.)
  5. Did anybody offer to go stick it on the refrigerator door?

    Long ago, I think on Facebook, I was a member of a Princess Bride fan group. And like half of the posts in the group was people saying that when they got married, the first thing their minister said to them was "No, I will not say 'mawaige'".
  7. . . . . because if he drops dead in the next year, it might cost us the Senate.

    PCS needs to be burped.
  9. re: "I will NEVER be quiet": True. For the last three years, you've been right in there actively co-conspiring with the Crook in Chief. re: Same thing they told Pbama: You mean, Trump's advisors are telling Trump that his predecessor signed off to a firm American withdrawal date before he left office, and now Trump is stuck with it, with no ability to negotiate?

    Maybe I just haven't seen enough Pacino, but to me, they all seem the same. (But no doubt there's lots I haven't seen.) I was thinking the same about DeNiro. But then I thought about it. About Al Capone. Analyze This! And Ronin. Yep, that's some range.
  11. And released them in hours.

    Movies: Once Upon a Time in the West. 2001. Princess Bride (Glad to see at least one person mentioned it.) Casino Royale. (No, not the joke one.) Star Trek: The Motion Picture. (Yes, I know I'm gonna get things thrown at me for this.) Actors: Johny Depp. (Again, glad to see somebody else has taste.) Harrison Ford. Vincent D'Onofrio After that, it gets tough for me. I think to be on that list, the actor has to have done a spectacular performance in at least two different, memorable, roles. And that's tough to think of. Might consider Peter Weller for that list. Henry Fonda. (Based on The Men Who Shot Liberty Valance, and Once Upon, above.)
  13. Bear in mind, we're talking about someone who may very well not know how to drive.
  14. Yes, but did they help us in WW2?
  15. Not as ridiculous as possible. To do that, they'd have to hand him quotes of things he actually said, and ask him to read them aloud.
  16. Gave em all to Antifa. Or Mexico.
  17. Waiting for the story that, after declining to be props in Trump's photo op, Trump cancelled their return flight.

    Racist costume?

    Well, while different, there is often a lot of overlap between those circles.
  19. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

    Really wish I knew a little bit less about the kinds of things you find fascinating.
  21. Remembering a scene from John Varley's book, Millenniun. (The events surround a mid-air collision between two airliners. Main character is an NTSB investigator in charge of investigating the crashes.) Investigator is departing one of the makeshift facilities set up for people to identify the belongings and/or body parts of their deal loved ones. And he is looking with contempt at the media who are assembled outside the facility, hoping to score an interview with someone who was just asked to say whether they think this foot might belong to their child/parent/uncle. "I hope that there is a hell. And when those ghouls get there, I hope a demon shoves a camera in their face and asks them to describe what they're feeling.:"
  22. This could be more fun than the Sharpie. (Because it's a lot less tragic.)

    Election 2020 The Non Presidential Edition

    I bet she's deeply concerned about it. And now, she has to vote the Trump Party Line again.

    You're describing somebody who's voting to protect a criminal who he knows is guilty, because he thinks that keeping his cushy job is more important. While that's not the definition of "treason", it is the definition of placing keeping power above what's right.

    Racist costume?

    I might be contrary, here. The question I'm hearing being asked is "If I saw somebody wearing this costume, would I conclude that he's racist?" And I think the answer is "no". (Now, if the question is "Is this a racial stereotype?" The answer is "No ****, Sherlock." But to me, it's such an exageration of the stereotype, that I have to conclude that it's intentional.) Again, maybe I'm overthinking this. But if I see that costume, what I see is someone who's making fun of Trump voters for whom the scariest thing in the world are scary Mexicans who are coming here to rape and murder the white women. Someone who's not making fun of Hispanics, but making fun of a lot of people's prejudices towards Hispanics. But then, it's well known that I'm weird.
