I know you are, but what am I?

Apparently at yesterday's circus, Senator McCain (?-AZ) complained about the emperor's choice of music, saying it didn't go well with the flames.

Barry, like he does whenever his string is pulled, retorted with his usual "The election is over," apparently thinking that the unspoken codicil to that is "...and so I should get to do whatever I want."

Then McCain said "Neener neener neener."

And Barry replied "Nuh-uh, I'm rubber, you're glue. What bounces off me, sticks to you!"

High school student government debates were models of maturity compared to these clowns.

Which is fine just as long as they don't get anything, you know, accomplished.

Bicker away, statemen, I don't care. Talk don't hurt me.

I rarely agree with McCain, but I have to give him the nod this time. If they want to completely destroy... I mean change... a sixth of our economy with one pen stroke they should at least have to do it clean, without a bunch of added on crap. This sort of thing should be about convictions and an honest assessment of what is best for America; not some gimme gimme gimme bullshit.

"This sort of thing should be about convictions..."

Hence my remark about McCain complaining about Nero's choice of music, rather than the fire itself.

Obama's point isn't even that good. Yes, the election is over. He won. So Obama is doing his job, trying to destroy America, and McCain is doing his, (as a senator, I mean, not as John McCain in particular) of trying to prevent him from doing so.

Now, it's John McCain, so he's not doing a very good job of it, but nonetheless, Obama's point still really sucked. The election is over, and John McCain is the opposition party of a (notionally) adversarial branch of government. Calling the President on his shit is like, his job. Ugh.

But you don't understand; Barry won!

Yes. Convictions that can't be appealed.

So that entire video was about how we don't care about *how* the product gets to us as long as we get it. I disagree with that. Unfortunately, Barry doesn't like being called on the fact that he failed in his promise of transparency (and I don't know how Reid or Dodd or anyone could have strong objections about that since it was Obama's promise). You want to know how to get it done? Remove all the special deals from everything. Crack down on the fraud. That will take care of 70% (a number I have pulled out of my ass)of all governmental problems.

Oh, that was Bo and Mac? Sorry, I was looking for the debate thread between the Yankees and the Patriots. Could'a sworn this was it when I saw that neener neener thing.

The bizarre thing is that CNN cites that exchange as part of the reason to say that the GOP pwn3d His Imperial Majesty at the freakin' debate.

I rarely ever comment in my own comment threads past about 24 hours.

Bitter experience has shown that by that time, anybody willing to learn anything or exchange adult conversation has long left. ;)

I presume you're referring (at this point) to the "We Are So Screwed" thread. And, you're right. We really are. 99% of the people commenting there were opposed to Barry's Health Care Plan, and were fighting with each other about something that happened 150 years ago.

Yep, we're right fucked.

Adult discourse? Not much of that in this post or the one I referenced, even when it was invoked.

I note that your 24-hr. policy is not in effect as to comments elsewhere...that's good, 'cause while "serious learnin' and adult conversation" may wane, some of the best humor and irony comes well after the self-deceiving "adults" have taken their toys and gone home. AT
