Nevada Prefers The Mere Idea Of Not-Harry Reid To Harry Reid

by Juli Weiner

  • The Internet, as personified by a Utah State Rep., briefly suggested that Jon Huntsman’s ambassadorship means that Huntsman will be in a prime position from which to convert all of China to Mormonism, and probably Republicanism! [Ben Smith]
  • With 18 months til the election, Harry Reid is losing to Another Candidate, the GOP’s fiery young upstart and the Party’s next great hope after Bobby Jindal. [CNN Political Ticker]
  • While President Bush has already made a new friend at his new school in Texas, a young man of fourteen with whom he hung out with for an hour and a half, it still sucks his family had to move now, because it’s so close to junior prom and so who doesn’t have a date at this point. Losers, that’s who. [Top of the Ticket]
  • Bush and Co.’s secret emails won’t be released, but hey, recall the parable of the “hacker” who “hacked” Sarah Palin’s Yahoo account by guessing her password was “ilovetodd” or whatever. [HuffPost]

Haha! I just had a terrifying vision of of 1.6 billion clean-cut Mormon Republican Chinese, smiling their creepy, joyless smiles.

The Rightards are right, we will have to seal our borders.

Assuming Huntsman tries to ring doorbells at 8am on Sundays in Beijing, the LDS will be less popular than Falun Gong.

Speaking of W. I was sent an invite to the W/Clinton whoop-di-do in Toronto. It would have set me back $200 for the cheap seats or $500+ for the douchebag section (aka CEOs/Self important Motherfuckers/hangers on.) I’d rather spend $200 bucks hanging out with William Shatner prattle on about the artistic brilliance of TJ Hooker and how Orion Girls are in the sack–I had to the opportunity to, but declined. Besides, the Secret Service would take me away after throwing Cuban Cigars (for Bill) and shoes (for W.)

[re=320306]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Yeah, but think of all the bicycles we could sell them! No more Hobo Beans!

[Bush has] started giving speeches — regaling an audience of businesspeople in Calgary, Canada, at a $400-a-plate luncheon.

…but since Dumbass was giving the speech, they let him in for free.

[re=320315]LittlePig[/re]: Have you looked a bicycle lately? Sez “Made in China” right on it.

[re=320314]ManchuCandidate[/re]: I bet you could get a pretty good beej for 200 Canadian Dollars.

I hear they have some real pros up there in Canada City. French-speaking girls or somesuch.

Nevada will re-elect Mormon convert Reid.

Those are probably polls biased by even having voters from outside Clark Co (Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Boulder City, Green Valley and Henderson)

Nevada has 16 counties. Spread out among those 16 counties are 3 congressional districts. by spread out I mean all three are in Clark Co. One in Las Vegas city, one in Henderson/Green Valley and Boulder City and one that is the whole rest of the state including Nellis Air Force Base and North Las Vegas. More than two thirds of the people are in just Clark County.

The Democrats took the two Clark county only districts but not the “rest of the state”.

Reid will just have tie any Republican to Governor Jim Gibbons – the WORST governor int he US – probably ever. His wife kicked him out of the governor’s mansion when he tried to rape a waitress in the closing weeks of the last campaign he ran. Even Dubya won’t let himself get pictured with Gibbons. Apes are embarrassed to share his name.

One 14-year-old was invited to visit the Bush home in Dallas and “ask me anything you want.” According to the kid’s grandmother, the two chatted for 90 minutes.

Well, granted, it probably took Georgie at least half an hour to parse the first three pages of “My Pet Goat.”

“Will you take me to a titty bar?”

[re=320371]zenferret[/re]: Your post was long and brutally serious, but the last sentence made it epic win.
