2. A victim of Jonestown...

Flavor-aid:

The drink became inextricably linked to the Jonestown Massacre when it was learned that the cyanide poison taken by or forcibly administered to the commune's members was placed in Flavor-Aid. Large barrels filled with the grape variety, laced with the cyanide and a variety of tranquilizer drugs, were found half-consumed amidst the hundreds of bodies. For an unknown reason, Kool-Aid rather than Flavor-Aid is almost always mentioned in connection with the Massacre, this factual error even spawning catchphrases (e.g. 'Don't drink the Kool-Aid' being a slang admonition not to trust charismatic people). Film of Jonestown many months before the Massacre show stocks of both Flavor-Aid and its leading competitor within the commune's storehouses, so it is quite possible that both drinks were used as carriers for the poison.

13. After being called a baby-killing, war-mongering Kenyan Nazi Socialist Marxist by the GOP

I think Obama will probably manage to handle their "outrage" at this.

16. Although circumstances led/forced me to give up my intention to read everything on

the DU front page, I try not to miss Pics of the Moment. So glad they're also in your journal in case I ever need to catch up.

Anyway, this one's a real keeper.

18. oh, yeah--the absolute adulation, the professions of total loyalty,

the use of nothing but superlatives, the invoking of 9-11 to justify crimes unthinkable even in the 80s, the vicious smears against anyone who doesn't go along with the 180 turns!

20. Of course Podesta had to give an obligatory apology for those comments

but we know that in spite of the apology he really did mean it and he was 100% correct in his characterization of those wackos.
