Screw Clint. I have a better Hollywood surrogate.

Steve Buscemi!

"Guess what guys! It's time to embrace the horror!"

Perfect! Don't you think?

I wish Anonymous had hacked the background displays for Rmoney's speech.

With all of those wonderful DU background photoshop jobs.

What would the RNC have done with all the network cameras grinding away?

Damn! It is something devoutly to be wished.

on edit: There's nothing they could have done about it. It was real time.

This stuff about Romney is like "The Three Stooges" wallpapering.

They put on too much paste, getting it on their faces, and in the wealthy matron's hair who happens to walk through the door, breaking the wallpaper which Mitt, the Stooge, has glued over it.

Whoop, Whoop, Whoop, Whoop, Whoop!
Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.

Few working at Staples make a living wage.

Minimum wage. Less than 30 hours per week. No benefits. No opportunities for advancement.

One of my brightest friends worked there for a period and he told me all about it. It sucked as a place to work.

Staples sucks.

What's this? The Lawrence Welk fan club?

Well, looking at the crowd, maybe it is.

Who's next? The Lennon Sisters?

Oops! Sorry! I meant to say Donnie and Marie. Forgive me, Joseph Smith.

Many DUers here have been saying Mitt won't bring up his Mormonism. Well, here ya go.

Mitt not only brought up Mormonism, but surrogates for Lawrence Welk.

Isn't it Wunnerful, Wunnerful?

"God Bless You" all night long.

How many times do I have to hear that tonight?

I am tempted to respond, "Thank you, your Eminence."

Who the fuck do these idiots think they are that they would presume that god is on their side? This is yet another dog whistle to the Republican theocratic faction, which, by the way, is no small faction.

Fuck them!!! Religion belongs nowhere near politics, let alone government.

And Ralph "Jack Abramoff's pal" Reed is also going to speak.

Did anybody else notice that "god bless you" ends just about every speech?

OH-gov Kasich dispicible "black-eyed peas" remark.

Did I really hear what I think I heard?

Race baiting asshole! Where's his klan hood?

Fucking Kasich! Dog whistling to the KKK.

Why didn't he use watermelons?
What a horrible stereotype.

Gawd! I love Rachel Maddow!

She's on Letterman right now.

Have fun with DU ads!

I've noticed new display ads at the bottom of threads today. Many are good Dem-friendly, but some are not.

Rather than complain about them, may I suggest a little game.

When you post a response to a thread and there's an amusing ad, tag a comment on the end of your post.

My favorite is the Pick the Veep ad that depicts Alan West, Condi Rice, and Donald Trump. It's a bit histerical, as if West or Trump had any chance, or of Condi would accept.

I have also seen an ad for a religious fundie wanting to tell everybody about Jesus. Another promotes the Heritage Foundation.

I love the fact that these guys are giving money to DU. We ought to click through to all of them. I would if I weren't worried about viral infection.

Meh! I use Linux and iPhone. Not much worry there.

Have at it everybody.
