Mark- thanks for your encouragement! We would love to have as many League readers join as possible!

Here's hoping to a fantastic tournament.

+ Ok, let's think about what might be different: 1. GWB was President of the United States then. He's a rancher in Texas now. 2. We were [. . .]

+ @Koz, "The reason they can’t do anything about our fiscal crisis is because they are in the minority party, otherwise they would." Remember when they were [. . .]

@Jaybird, Now that's funny. And very much on target.

Koz

Koz

Koz
+ "Especially when it’s coupled with these fever swamp hallucinations that the Democrats would ever allow a treasury default or a bond rating downgrade." Ok, let's start [. . .]
+ @Sallad, Yeah, I'm at a loss as to what the motivation could be for posting things like that. Even if he wants attention, now he's [. . .]
Sallad

That is a good line and it's quite sad the kinds of things people will say or do to get some fame.

+ @Koz, So because the Republicans have some backbenchers rattling around who talk a good game about reducing the size of government when they're not in [. . .]
+ @trumwill, Trum, I am willing to concede that point. But to provide a counter point; a person who drinks moderately will typically suffer no significant [. . .]
+ @North, that's true, as far as the effect that basic use has on the user. However, any conversation weighing the negative effects of tobacco vs [. . .]

I DUNNO BUT HE'S AN EXCELLENT DRIVER.

@Trumwill, I think the “Bad Romance” cover made a bit of a splash.

+ @Rincewind, See "Robin and Marian", starring Sean Connery in the title role (not the Marian bit). A really charming, low-key version of what the life [. . .]
Koz
+ "I’m kind of thinking of “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.”" Great, so how's that working for you? Obama is doing the same things that [. . .]
Koz
+ "I mean, seriously. I *AM* uncomfortable… but it’s because I feel like I’m talking to someone who insists that I name my favorite televangelist." Ugh. [. . .]
Koz
+ "Mark, if the GOP had pushed for Wyden Bennett you and I both know that Obama at least would have jumped on it like Oprah [. . .]
Koz
+ Uhhh, no. Really, no. This is kind of a silly analogy, but taking it for what it is, it's like the GOP is [. . .]
Koz
+ "So… got any GOP leaders who’ve endorsed the plan? Or you could lay out your reasoning for how this doesn’t matter and isn’t the same [. . .]

@Rincewind,

Mr. Elwes, welcome, I didn't know you read this blog.

@gregiank,
Nah I thought that was for after she's served a while in the office.

gregiank
