Okay, one of those "sex toys" is a scalp massager.

Don't get me wrong, they feel great on your head, but I don't think they'd do much anywhere else.

Who doesn't want a whopper?

And in the end

The love you take, is equal to the love you make.

True, true.

ARE YOU SAYING I'M NOT GOING TO GET MY HARAMBE-SHAPED CHEETO?

No fucking way. I already insured it through Llloyds.

We need to stop overthinking these things and listening to the conventional wisdom.

You don't plug a bunch of variables into the "candidate machine" and get a winning candidate out the end like a frozen pizza. At best, you get a patchwork homunculous that doesn't stand for anything and inspires no one.

People want to talk about "finding that Obama magic again"? .... Conventional wisdom had Obama pegged as the WORST possible candidate, the one our party would be insane to run. NO WAY was "middle America" gonna vote for the One Term AA Senator with the name that rhymes with "Osama". No fucking WAY. And his middle name is "Hussein"? Are you out of your minds?

The Conventional Wisdom people, the people who try to design a candidate by plugging in the "proper" electability variables, wanted nothing to do with Barack Hussein Obama.

And those same people told us Kerry was a shoo-in. War Hero? Gravitas? Oh, and he voted for the Iraq War (yay!), so he can't be hit with Nineeleven, amirite?

Derp.

That same conventional wisdom said Trump was FUCKED. Hell, I thought he was too, at least after the pussygrabbing tape- but remember all the jokes about "more electable than Trump"?

Whoops.

We need to put this bullshit beltway conventional wisdom crap out to pasture for good. And what we need in terms of a leader is someone who genuinely inspires and organically LEADS, and if and when that person shows up I guarantee you it won't matter what gender they are, what color they are, what their last name is or what state they're from.
