5. OkaY it IS funny!



But it's Grave's (hypo) that causes the bug eyes. My fiancÚs eyes never went back in all the way when his thyroid tanked.

So I just asked him if he was going to Register as a Republican after we get married (he's an Italian citizen) and showed him the picture and instead of getting the joke he says - (big eyes okay :lmao: ) There is ANOTHER crazy lady besides that Jesus one with the brown hair?!?!?!

He's all twitchy now. I told him Callista is her running mate!

8. he sounds like a nice laid-back guy

I love that you could tease him like that and instead of taking offense he got worried about there being another Michelle Bachman! Plus he must have the most gorgeous accent!

20. You are wrong

Grave's disease is hyperthyroid meaning an overactive thyroid. Underactive thyroid is hypothyroid. With Hypothyroid you do not get that "big eye" as you said.

That picture of CG is particularly disturbing. It's actually almost like she got a hypo of "Joker venom".

12. Glass houses...

I wouldn't want to enter Nancy Pelosi in a "not looking surprised" contest and I really like Nancy Pelosi.

Bachman probably comes by her manic expression honestly but Calista's appears to be of the surgical variety, like a lot of older women these days.

And my candidate in 2008 (and current VP) has hair plugs, for gosh sakes...

But even given all of that... yeah, a lot of republicans do look unbalanced.

15. Did anyone watch the christmas mass on TV yesterday evening?

 

Mrs. (plastic face) Gringrich was in the choir. It was at the National Catholic Church in DC. Low and behold when it came time to receive communion Newty Fruity was getting his communion. Plastic face stood out in the crowd because of the fake blonde hair.

Women's looks always are a target because that seems to be, at the end of the day, what women are most valued for, whether it's us doing it or newt commenting on the first lady's backside.

23. Havings Graves' disease, I'd concur.

Bug eyed and emaciated?

Hey, what's not to make fun of?

Next we can make fun of paraplegics and the melanin-abundant. (We're progressives so we're automatically in a state of grace.)

25. There's something strange about the Gingriches

Whenever they do interviews together, it looks like she's his programmed robot and he's watching her carefully to see if she's saying the right words from the script.

They are not genuinely smiling, they are making the effort to smile because it is expected. That's how it comes across to me.

In either case, it is telling.
