9. Oh, yes and to top it off a Tenn Republican. I cringed when he

said rocket surgeon. I don't know about other states but I wish there was a rule that Legislators from TN have to take a rigid test to prove they are not neanderthals.

7. That is so sad, the poor man.

Martin Bashir has to listen to this stuff. I'm going to turn MSNBC on, it will be like watching a train wreck. I love Tivo.

8. I use that phrase all of the time

 


I do it as a purposeful play on "brain surgeons" and/or "rocket scientists", but its become second nature.

You know what they say, it's just half of one and six dozen of the other.

12. Well, this isn't rocket surgery!

I have used the phrase for decades. But I'll stop now that the Repukes have adopted it.

13. Gads. Is that a malapropism

or an eggcorn?

The actual idea is, of course, idiotic.

14. I think he means mechanics that work on rockets.

Or maybe he means robot surgeons it's a common mistake. Rockets, robots they are mechanical things you know.

16. Feeling supierior to someone is a down side to human nature....

The GOP just seem to attract the kind of people where it is important.
I have, you don't have, that makes me better.
