The old thread.

Please confine health care comments to the proper thread.

Well, it looks like we won't have anything to talk about regarding health care reform.

Re: The 2010 Massachusetts Senate election thread, part II

Should discussions about Howard Dean's completely batshit crazy statements go here (since it's about the MA special election) or the Health Care thread (since it's also about health care)?

Be creative. Post every other word in each thread.

Re: The 2010 Massachusetts Senate election thread, part II

Well my favorite line in that bit was related to Scott Brown.

"The voters of Massachusetts agree with you, but they voted Republican. That makes no sense. If you were in the voting booth, would you have voted for Scott Brown?"

"Of course not."

Dean was a clown - a joke - as a presidential candidate.

He was very effective as Chairman of the DNC. Of course he had a little help from the Repubs.

Anyone notice Dean's hair went from gray to brown?

Re: The 2010 Massachusetts Senate election thread, part II

Dean appears to have health problems as well, though I can't put a finger on what it might be exactly. Possibly a subtle mental illness of some kind. And no, I'm not joking. Maybe he had it all along and it is just now manifesting more clearly. This isn't a dig on his politics, more a remark on his manner. His rationale could figure in as well.

They mis-spelled "super-majority"?

Maybe they did not want to use a smaller font?

That black man is helping a white republican and they forgot to make his daughter look like an asian woman in the name of diversity?

Well, I wonder who the extremely small woman is who is hiding behind the dog. However, it could be distortion from camera angle and an ultra-wide angle lens.

If I'm interpreting that box correctly, it contains an electronic picture frame which displays various waterfalls, presumably in motion. That's pretty lame. Christmas present from the daughter, I guarantee.

Re: The 2010 Massachusetts Senate election thread, part II

Senator Scott Brown's wife, Gail Huff, in an early music video. I just heard an interview with Brown, and he said when his wife gets mad, he and the daughters start singing this song to her

It was not uploaded to a hosting service, and can't be seen?

Just for Groucho and X, I'll stop leeching bandwidth from the blog where I found it.



(The correct answer is that the dog has not yet had its distemper shots).
