Quote of the Day


"When you take the 9-9-9 plan and you turn it upside down, I think the devil's in the details."

-- Michele Bachmann, finally noticing that Herman Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan is 666 upside-down

I'll give Bachmann this: It takes skill to say the most ridiculous thing at one of these GOP Clown Car debates, so good on her.

To his credit, the normally sycophantic Howard Fineman sums up the entire milieu of last night's debate -- which he called a "strange faculty lounge" -- in the Huffington Post. It's worth a read.

Somebody should show her how to spell "BOOBS" on a calculator. Her mind would be blown.

I think she's rejecting this purely on biblical principles, rather than any sort of ethical standard. None the less, the right thing done for the wrong reasons is still the right thing, I just get caught up in the intent.

@ Christi: "BOOBLESS" and "HELLO." It'd keep her busy for hours.

Looking at these GOP debates, I don't know if I should be reaching for the popcorn or the whiskey.

At a media opportunity this morning an elementary school kid noted that 9-9-9 = -9.

Whereupon Bachmann churlishly snapped; "I know what Pi is, thank you!"

I love this woman and will proudly vote for her. If the US is going to implode, I say fuck it and enjoy the ride.

BACHMANN 2012!!!!

Sarah Palin having exited the field, I will now say that a man who finds Michelle Bachmann attractive is a man who fantasizes about being spanked by a Sunday School teacher.

White-bread conservative pols flashing their forced smiles,
Pointing their plastic ideals at me.
I'm hoping soon their kind will drop and die,
But instead they proudly wave their freak flags high ...WHY!

GOP 2012: We're trying so hard to make the dark skinned people appetizing that we have completely forgotten about the crazy ladies.

When you take 46137 and you turn it upside down, I'm in the details. Oh, and also the devil.

Punch 46137 into the jukebox to hear "Lay Lady Leigh." There was no devil in 1969 when Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline album was released.
