faded obama poster - Google Search

I'd say Ryan's speech is taking on a life of its own

Now they're selling posters of students staring at fading Obama posters. Ironic.

Please point to another president in recent memory where campaign posters didn't hit the garbage can two days after the election? The fact that they are still up four years later is more than a bit impressive.

I'd say Clint Eastwood's (tremendously awful) attempt at wit and humor is taking on a life of its own.

NO ONE is talking about Ryan. Everyone is talking about Eastwood. And judging by the horrified look on Anne Romney's face last night I'd say that includes the Romney household.

I thought Eastwood was hilarious. Perhaps the humor went over your head...

Oh, gosh. Do you thinks so? Wait. Maybe I'll reconsider. Maybe he was a real knee-slapping, quick thinking comic last night. Let us ponder that.

OK. I pondered it. No.

And the deflection by the Republicans of "it must have gone over your head" isn't working. It quit being a snappy comeback before the last balloon dropped last night.

Yes, it was quite humorous. He was able to be funny without talking about pricks, vaginas, using the F word or wishing that a hurricane would strike somebody.

People are talking about Ryan, but not in a good way. This years RNC was all about Eastwood's horrific performance, and Ryan's massive lie about Obama closing a GM plant that was done under W.

You betcha, the little liberal educated brain dead reverse bigots have their very own Che to idolize while they toke their joints and pick up their food stamps. Hope and Change, "how's that workin out for ya!"
