I thought thats what Franken told Lieberman yesterday? This is just piling on.

the problem child December 18, 2009 at 10:08 am

Yeah, just try to shut them up.

Snarko Marx December 18, 2009 at 10:09 am

That’s about what Senator Franken said to Senator Elmer Fudd yesterday.

He really shouldn’t get the hopes of the SDMLF* up like that.

The status has never been more quo than now.

Pithaughn December 18, 2009 at 10:17 am

I am stunned that there is no mention of Schwhetty Balls today. For me, one of the top 3 funniest moments on TV ever.

Today, we are all full of bullshit.

[re=481363]Pithaughn[/re]: “Wow. I can’t wait to get my mouth around his Balls.”

Best line ever!

[re=481366]hockeymom[/re]: And just like that, it was gone.

Mr Blifil December 18, 2009 at 10:26 am

Guess that means it’s sexytime.

proudgrampa December 18, 2009 at 10:26 am

[re=481366]hockeymom[/re]: Wow. Looke like he did.

thesheriffisnear December 18, 2009 at 10:38 am

No need for a witty here snippet here. I despise Obama.

binarian December 18, 2009 at 10:42 am

[re=481374]proudgrampa[/re]: …and someone cleaned up his or her post. Banhammer!

betterDeadThanRed December 18, 2009 at 10:43 am

That’s the problem with the presidency – all he can really do is talk. It requires the cooperation of Congress to really fuck things up.

CaiteeCruelle December 18, 2009 at 10:49 am

Alt text win, btw. I am happy.

freakishlystrong December 18, 2009 at 11:03 am

[re=481379]thesheriffisnear[/re]:And you obviously despise sentence structure as well.

BlueStateLibtard December 18, 2009 at 11:09 am

Oh thank God, now we can start carpet-bombing Conneticut.

BeWoot December 18, 2009 at 11:16 am

Marginally OT, but I had this dream where I was punching Joe Lieberman in the jowls and kick David Brooks in the shins. I woke up with an erection, natch.

chaste everywhere December 18, 2009 at 11:31 am

[re=481421]BeWoot[/re]: Beats punching yourself in the erection and waking up with Joe and David (or so I’ve been told).

Toomush Infermashun December 18, 2009 at 11:43 am

Okay, but Glenn Thrush isn’t some pseudo-acronomic for Glen The Rush composite, now, really, is it…? Okay, I’ll shut up….Zip…Shhh…I mean it….

gurukalehuru December 18, 2009 at 11:47 am

Damned straight, the time for talk is over. Time to strip Lieberschmuck of his chairpersonships and start some trials for war crimes, corruption, constitutional violations and general fuck-uppery.
My guess is, though, everybody’ll just keep talking.

SayItWithWookies December 18, 2009 at 12:03 pm

I’ve got some ex-girlfriends who think that statement is never true.

Beef Supreme December 18, 2009 at 12:09 pm

The time for talk is over. It is now time for dance!

Potater December 18, 2009 at 12:12 pm

I feel like I’m watching an episode of Congressional Babies, and Obama is the head-obscured nanny figure telling Li’l Joey Liberbutt to pipe down for naptime.

Humpback December 18, 2009 at 12:29 pm

Can we still write? Because that’s not really the same thing as talking.

Oh, OK, I’ll go now.

thesheriffisnear December 18, 2009 at 12:44 pm

[re=481391]Mr Blifil[/re]: [re=481391]Mr Blifil[/re]: Proofread fail. Its a Paris in the the spring thing. So solly.

lawrenceofthedesert December 18, 2009 at 1:02 pm

Does that mean Obama will be our first mime President?

Violenza December 18, 2009 at 6:05 pm

So do we hate him yet? I am ready to come to a consensus on that.

hunter.blatherer December 18, 2009 at 8:13 pm

I’m waaaaaay ahead of the curve on this one. I literally (in the non-Biden sense) do more grunting, tsking, hissing, and whooping than I do talking, on any given day. And I manage to get paid for it.

wonkettefan December 19, 2009 at 9:22 am

I really hate the Oreo-cookie in the WH.

LowerdPeninsula December 20, 2009 at 2:26 am

President, pleeze. You know, after you say this, oh, a few hundred times in the span of 12 months it kind of stops meaning shit. So, the time for talk is over, eh? What, so you can whip and push over the finish line some other half-assed/half-dead pony “solution”. Whatever.
