She Urges Democrats to Grow a Pair

Recommended Posts

Persia

On her program tonight, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow urged Democrats to get their act together and stop campaigning in fear. Maddow argued that Democrats can win based on their accomplishments, “Imagine what it would look like if they started to campaign on the actual accomplishments they accomplished.” In short, Democrats need to grow a pair.

Yeah, listen to Rachel. Talk about the great things you've done. But I don't think Rachel would like anyone with "a pair", would she? Sounds like she's as confused about herself as she is about politics.

I'd rather hear positive campaigning than negative campaigning.

Even if they are pretty lies.

What kind of remark is that and how does it contribute to this debate at all? You've basically said nothing in a very intolerant way.

The overall Democrat effort this year does seem to be one of doom. They already believe that the Republicans are going to win more Seats and so they seem to have a defeatist attitude.

She's not confused. She is openly gay, with the same partner since 1999. Myself, I think it is a lifestyle Choice, but I don't think she is confused. It's not like she raves about Tom Cruise to make us think she is straight (Rosie O'Donnell).

I think I said a lot in an intolerant way.

Tolerance is only appropriate when egregiousness is not present. Otherwise it is cowardice. -- Someone with a pair

That's quite a list. From one all the way to one. A "Freudian" error?

opened my right eye,

opened my left eye.

Blinked both eyes.

Took sheet off.

Sat up.

Put feet on floor.

Stood half way.

Stood the rest of the way

I'm making a list of all the things I accomplished today. SO MUCH I haven't even gotten past getting up! I guess I am just a GO GETTER! . If I was in the Army, I'd be getting a bunch of medals or something

Turned toward bathroom.

Anounced intention to proceed to bathroom

Anounced intention to use bathroom while there...

I'm tired... but it's a GOOD tired.
