Republicans vote for a LEADER that they can FOLLOW. Also a BOSS they expect US to OBEY. (They then accuse us of being disloyal to the thug.)

Democrats vote like it's for a Union Steward and watch them like a hawk for signs they've been sold out. (Often going into total crying jags at the slightest hint that it's happening AGAIN!!! WAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!)

In other cities too. Media said it might be a bad day to get a burger and fries! lunasun Jul 2013 #1
