What does this hand gesture mean to you?

Someone places one of their hands on top of the other and twirls their thumbs.

Does this have a uniform meaning?

Mitt: "Doesn't everyone pay their taxes on Priceline.com"?

It's simple. You log in and name your rate!

Hey, Harry, as long as the testosterone supplements are working...

Are we going to get some new rules in January, or what?

Are you happy with the "deal" you made two years ago to require 60 votes for jack shit to get out of the Senate?

I think the rest of us are pretty tired about it.

I realize that if the D's are ever again a minority, then it can't be switched off, but here's the thing...

If we can get some LEGISLATION PASSED that actually fixes some things, makes some things better, and inures to the appreciation of the public, then:

(A) D's won't BECOME a minority, or

(B) By that time, the paradigm will have shifted far enough, and them along with it, that they can't do a whole lot of harm.

I think a large majority of the electorate is willing to take that chance.

Stop it. This is hard. Get in the ring.

That's some pillow talk they have in the Romney house, but, where are the remixes this year?

There were some awesome remixes the last time around. Thus far, the best I've seen is OFA's "context" video, but "stop it, this is hard" is beggin for a good remix.

How hard does Alex Castellanos work on being stupid?


Today on Mitt's tax release:

"At first I thought this was an April Fool's Joke," Castellanos said. "But it isn't April. I can't imagine that David Axelrod will now say, I'm glad Mitt put this issue behind him. This will drag Mitt's taxes back into the debate. And there's not many days left. I just can't imagine why they would do this. There are 40 days left and you have now made more of them about Mitt's taxes.... you don't serve a life sentence and then confess afterward."

Uh, no Alex, you don't. Because after you serve a life sentence, you're dead.

Mitt Proven Right!

I listened to Her Royal Romnificence for about 30 seconds and, sure enough, I was already tired of her at 15.

They gotta pull back the dosage on her to - maybe - single frame subliminal inserts only once a week.

There are newly discovered elements that hang together longer than my appetite to listen to her scolding someone about something.

My Seamus Epiphany - Seamus Is All You Need To Know About Mitt

A couple of months ago, it seemed to me it was all-Seamus all the time here on DU. At least three threads a day, funny graphics, the works.

"Okay, I got it, he put a dog on the roof," I thought, "That's not going to win or lose a presidential election."

What has finally hit me like a ton of bricks is that Seamus is not some stupid thing he did long ago, it is the essence of this man.

This guy thinks putting the dog on the roof and hosing it off was a good approach to the problem of taking the dog on vacation.

He wants to decide our budget priorities?

This guy not only thought it was a good idea - he bragged about it.

He wants to appoint Supreme Court Justices?

He thought it was a stellar example of how he can solve a problem.

He wants his finger on the nuclear button?

This guy probably had more regard for that dog than he does for a vaguely-defined 47% of this country.

It's not about some silly thing long ago. Every time this guy reveals more of his character, it becomes apparent that the Seamus story is not about something he did - it is about who he is!

Remember folks - He LIKED the dog, and he has less regard for dang near everyone else. Do you really want to let him drive this car for the next four years?

While Obama will have coattails...

...the only thing Mitt will be pulling along is a piece of toilet paper stuck to his heel.

That and Paul Ryan.

Criminal soft drink labs planned by NY gangs

Using the same strategy used to produce meth, NYC's criminal gangs are planning to expand their market to include sugary drinks of more than 16 ounces.

By sending several purchasers to a single store to each purchase eight ounce soft drinks, health authorities say that the labs are capable of combining them into drinks that are 16 ounces, and even larger.

Using multiple purchasers, or smurfs, an illicit chemist can disguise what would otherwise be the purchase of these large-drink precursor chemicals. Using ordinary household supplies, and a recipes that can be found on the Internet, one gang member says that from raw material obtained by having the smurfs hit several convenience stores, they can produce dozens of sugary soft drinks in sizes larger than 16 ounces each day. Some users have even been caught with portable soft drink labs they can use right in the store.
