  2. Bob B says:

    …said “What difference does it make?”

  3. jw says:

    …well, they didn’t care when trashed the 2nd amendment, so i thought “hey, might as well get the 1st, too.”

    @50 Are liberals allowed to swear to god? Ain’t that a violation of their Separation of Church and State dogma?

    said, “I wasn’t acting as AG… I’m really only half AG…

    Take it away Eric the Orchestra Leader

    A-one, two, a-one two three four

    Half AG, philosophically,
    Must, ipso facto, be not AG.
    But half AG has got to be
    Vis a vis, its entity. D’you see?

    But can AG be said to be
    Or not to be an entire AG
    When half the AG is not AG
    Due to some recent perjury?

    -singing

    La dee dee, one two three,
    Eric the half AG.
    A B C D E F G,
    Eric the half AG.

    Is this wretched dumb-AG,
    Half-asleep, caught by AP,
    Some freak from a menagerie?
    No! It’s Eric the half AG!

    Fiddle de dum, Fiddle de dee,
    Eric the half AG.
    Ho ho ho, tee hee hee,
    Eric the half AG.

    I love this jive, employee-ee,
    bisected incidentally,
    One summer afternoon by AP,
    Loved just like Jay Carney.

    Loved just like Jay Carney,
    Semi-Jay Carney.

    The End”

  8. rodney dill says:

    @57 – down Pat who?

  9. rodney dill says:

    @Janeane Garofalo – You choose to address Eric Holder’s job performance in a straightline/punchline comment context that would ridicule your point of view, even IF it were absolutely true, toward people that would ridicule your point of view, even IF it were absolutely true, and yet you have the audacity to suggest that we’re slowthinking?….

  10. walruskkkch says:

    @57 Well I have HUMOR down pat, still working on this wingnuttery thing. Who would have thought Orals would be so tough? Holder doing an acceptable job of advancing the greater good? Paging Mr Eichmann, paging Mr. A Eichmann to the white courtesy telephone…
