She's been on MSNBC a lot lately as a kind of Democratic congressional spokesperson. I think she comes across pretty well usually. So yeah, I had heard of her, but only in this election campaign. I'd have to say I'm a fan.

I don't get it though... urban? Vin Diesel/Harry Connick? Can you clarify, TE? I'm dying to know.

That's fucked up. 



Not in a good way. 



You have to at least respect that editing.  Prett-y impressive.

Oh, come on.  The reasons for your saying what you said are apparent.  I have a notion that people are worried that you posted about it to draw out hidden racism and that's why they are responding as they are.  (I will now await the lynch mob.)

On another note:  I voted yesterday.  Glad to get that over and done with.

Finally, this

Nice call, Sarah. I genuinely couldn't figure out what was going on, but smelled a rat. By the way, who is the speaker in the video? It's nice to hear from folks who will never be seen on CNN at a time like this.

Now to play loose with the subject of this thread to balance out my previous tweedy post

This is the main reason that any conservative friends I have are voting Democrat this year.

I saw that Eagleburger interview yesterday and thought, "What a senile old evasive loon."

On the bright side, Maine is dark blue again:  53% to 38%.  That made me happy this morning.
