Oh hey, Wonkette.
Oh hey, Wonkette.

What is that above? Could it be former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell, schmoozing with yr Wonket like a common schmoozer? It could possibly be! Thursday afternoon, Governor Rendell received the Frank Kameny award presented by the Equality Forum, for his contributions to the fight for LGBT equality. He is holding the trophy he winned, and we are holding a poster Nancy Pelosi gave us, because Nancy Pelosi gives EVERYBODY posters. (Allegedly.)

Rendell told many stories, and everybody laughed, and there was some anecdote he told that we couldn’t hear very well, but the punch line was “He came four times.” So, LOLOL! We bet the whole joke was SUPER GOOD, and not at all gross.

Ed Rendell would NEVER tell a dirty joke, heck nope, definitely not to a room full of gays.

    I remember Rendell on Morning Joe back in 2012. Romney had just embarrassed himself on camera.
    Joe covered his face, Mika was trying not to laugh – and Ed was grinning like he’d just gotten laid.

  • malsperanza

    Can I just mention how much Andrew Cuomo sucks?

  • cousin itt

    Shut up Cuomo. Your voice is giving me a headache.

    • Suttree

      The 1980’s called and wants it’s New Yawk accent back.

      • BadKitty904

        It’s like a goose armed with a dentist’s drill…

        • Suttree

          My mother was raised in Staten Island. Her accent has gotten better over the years, but she still says certain words that are nails on a chalkboard.

    • BadKitty904

      Well, yah, a tad long-winded…

    • 3FingerPete

      The whine! It burns.

    • Astraea

      Where’s Joe Beece to tell this guy to stop yelling?

  • UncleTravelingMatt

    No Mario.

  • miss_grundy

    Will this be the place to cheer and snark tonight’s speakers or will this be a progressive post and we are having dessert someone else? I’m asking for a friend.

    • Brian

      they should have a convention chat post up by 8:00.

      • WomanInAMood

        Would that be 5 left coast time?

    • Recipriversexclusons

      We’re a 1/2 hour from Livu post time.

  • Courser

    I thought this was a boring guy and voila, it’s Gov. Cuomo, Chris’ homely brother.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Andy’s goin’ for a cabinet post here. Governoring is no fun when everybody hates you.

    • BadKitty904

      This.

    • Recipriversexclusons

      Office of toilet flushing regulation?

  • 3FingerPete

    Fuck this guy. Whose brilliant idea was this?

    • Recipriversexclusons

      Appears you are not alone…

  • miss_grundy

    Andy isn’t anything like his daddy….

  • Brian

    I am not a fan of my Governor!

  • Beaumarchais?

    Uh oh, Evan’s posting about coming four times. I’ll be in my bunk.

  • ltmcdies

    he’s not ever running for president …right?

    • Antonin Dvorak

      He may run, but I doubt anyone outside NY will vote for him.

      • tehbaddr

        NY dems for the most part won’t vote for him.

      • malsperanza

        He is corrupt as fuck and has singlehandedly prevented the Dems from taking control of the state legislature. He has attacked and thwarted De Blasio over and over, for no reason other than his dick-swinging asinine ego. He can go drink a dick.

        ~Everyone in NY

        • Antonin Dvorak

          Well ok then.

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      He’s been flirting with it for a decade. But he’s a complete tool and everyone knows it.

    • UncleTravelingMatt

      AG.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Meanwhile, the NY delegation all had to go on a bathroom break at the same time.

  • Brian

    did he steal Guiliani’s speech?

    • BigBoppa

      was he ranting and drooling on himself?

  • BadKitty904

    OK, decent line.

  • IdRatherBeDancing

    Hey bastards — I. Am. Worn. Out.

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      I am too. #bitchmoangrumblewhine
      I’m actually not too worried about poor speakers right now; I’m not paying any attention.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Andy, time to go home.

  • parkii

    The metal detector line was really good. Although my kids went to Detroit Public Schools, and had to go through metal detectors, and you know what? No one ever got shot or stabbed.*

    *at school

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      It was the metal detectors in my son’s K-6 that drove me out of the public schools. just HELL no.

      • parkii

        I didn’t really mind, because kids at white suburban schools were getting shot. And my kids had some really great teachers and administrators, and they’re both incredibly smart and have a love for learning, so it was a good trade off.

      • (((JustPixelz)))

        Be sure to send Wayne LaPierre a thank you note.

    • BadKitty904

      I went to a Catholic school. Anyone who knows the Sisters of St. Joseph knows better than to even think about bringing a weapon to school.

      • parkii

        I am now trying really hard to remember if the Catholic schools in our hood had metal detectors or not!

  • BadKitty904

    Hilz was in a trench?

    Nancy Pelosi gives EVERYBODY posters TAKERS free gubmit handouts.

      Need to remember to get a new Obamaphone before the inauguration in January.

      • 3FingerPete

        I got a Obama 52″ flat screen tv with 1080p and Wi-Fi. It’s sweet!

        • david green

          Really? Damn! I’m still trying to get my Obamaphone!

    • Recipriversexclusons

      Shouldn’t you credit that? “Paul AynRand”

    • IdRatherBeDancing

      Speaking of — she’s yapping

  • Parchment Scroll

    He does not enunciate like a human being speaking a language he understands. He is just making sounds that sound like English, isn’t he?

  • Brian

    I am happy to look out my window right now and look at the Freedom Tower, or as we non-pols call it, One World Trade.

    • Suttree

      I can only see Manhattan in the winter when the foliage is down. *peers from the ridge of the First Watchung Mountain*

    I guess the best of the best of the best were the 1st 3 days. Can’t upstage the Star Performer!

    My bad.

    • IdRatherBeDancing

      In our heads!

  • Why the bad speakers today?

    Because Hillary will sound much, much better

    • Astraea

      We’re still pre-primetime. Only the nerds are watching.

      • House0fTheBlueLights

        Who you callin’ a nerd. Oh, right.

      • BadKitty904

        Ahem.

        • Astraea

          Are you not one of us??

          • WomanInAMood

            Proud nerd here!

          • BadKitty904

            You have NO idea.

            I was referring to you, actually – you sound much too pretty and graceful to be a stand-issue nerd…

          • Astraea

            Oh my goodness how sweet. That’s only because you’re spared the live view of me in my Doctor Who shirt and non-pants.

          • FlownOver

            Pics or… oh, OK. Never mind.

      • parkii

        Yep. I told my mom that she missed her state rep, and also Debbie Stabenow, and she said, “ok, keep me posted. Let me know when Chelsea’s on.” :)

        • Toomush_Infer

          I’m sorry – Debbie’s mine, and I’m kinda fierce about her!…

          • parkii

            But… I campaigned for her when I was a Young! She was my state rep before she went big time! Let’s share. :)

          • Toomush_Infer

            Yay you! I’m always remembering that first big campaign!…

          • parkii

            This was waaay back when she was still in the state house, I am an Old now! :)

          • miss_grundy

            I’ll keep Debbie Stabenow too. But could we get rid of that Tea Partier Dave Trott? I can’t stand that guy. This district keeps going Republican instead of going blue.

          • Toomush_Infer

            Grrrr….yes, please…..

  • tehbaddr

    Here we go!

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Madam Speaker!

    • Recipriversexclusons

      Remember to vote down-ballot elections so we are guaranteed the House after the 2020 census. Hopefully she can be handed the gavel for more than 1 term!

  • Parchment Scroll

    Oh, Ms. Pelosi, are the bad speakers done now?

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      no

    • miss_grundy

      I think the real program starts at 8:00 P.M.

      • Parchment Scroll

        In what time zone?

        • House0fTheBlueLights

          Beer Daylight Time

  • Markuserektus

    Pleased as punch to be here

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    It’s quiet among the BoBs. TOO quiet.

    • Parchment Scroll

      They’re all following Jill Stein around They might still be doing the outside sit-in or something.

    • Sardonicuss

      Silent but deadly?

    • Astraea

      I hope they’re exhausted from their fits of impotent rage.

    • They need to be quiet. Apart from anything else, there are 100 year old women that have been waiting all of their lives to hear this speech. And a lot of them don’t hear so well. They shouldn’t have to deal with straining to hear over the Busters.

      • Daisy

        Maybe they can give the BOB a death glare, and if they don’t behave, a smack with their purse. Just enough for them to question their behavior.

    • Recipriversexclusons

      To busy eating refried bean burritos?

    • Treg Brown

      Aren’t they gathering outside to citizen arrest Secretary Clinton when she takes the stage? Hope Susan Sarandon can fight cause I know Hillary can.

      • feministing

        has anything like this ever happened on either side? this seems like an extreme level of lunacy

        • Treg Brown

          It really is, and I’m hoping in 20 years when they look back on this they see how fucking stupid and nationally embarrassing their actions were.

        • House0fTheBlueLights

          The privilege, it burns. or Berns. At any rate, it’s going to give us the Erster Amerikinashe Reich.

        • Recipriversexclusons

          The alt-right has their own brand of extreme level of “L”unacy.
          Yup, labeled them with an L word!

      • Good_Gawd_Yall

        I hope they are barred from entering.

        • parkii

          There’s no way they’ll get in the building. They just want to get manhandled on tv so they can cry about how oppressed they are.

      • Courser

        WTF? I have not heard this.

    • The drums, the drums and the heat, and then the silence. The damn, damn silence and you know they’re out their waiting, waiting with murder on their minds and you know the drums will begin again signaling the end …

      The drums … will they never stop!!!!!

      • FlownOver

        When drums stop… bass solo!

    • malsperanza

      They’re taking a nap.

  • Treg Brown

    Nancy Pelosi reminds me of my 1-5 grade principal. She hand wrote every “graduating” 5th grader a personal note encouraging them and sharing memories. An awesome person and a great principal.

    • dslindc

      I had a principal like that in elementary school too. She was awesome.

    • Daisy

      Awww, that’s so sweet!

  • UncleTravelingMatt

    For a minute there, I thought she was giving Dellasandro’s a shout-out. My favorite cheesesteak, but I’m not a Philly native, so I don’t know shit.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Lesson: even when you’re reading off a teleprompter, memorize the speech.

    • Markuserektus

      …or at least rehearse it.

    • tehbaddr

      Yeah not going well, maybe teleprompter hack?

    • Parchment Scroll

      Oh my god I cannot upfist this enough.

    • CripesAmighty

      Pelosi’s always been an awful speechifyer. Seems that the true master legislators (Clyburn, Pelosi, Reed, etc.) are the weakest speakers

      • Good_Gawd_Yall

        She’s not all that great in interviews either IMO. I have seen her a few times where she looks like she just came from getting whacked in the back of the head with a small but heavy object.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Hey, Evan! We all actually did read your post! It was great! We don’t want to talk about that!

    • 3FingerPete

      There is a post?

    • Parchment Scroll

      We thought it was adorable and you should get us the rest of that assuredly-not-dirty joke! :D But post it here in the nonexistent comments instead of the article.

    • BadKitty904

      Yes! Poster & Rendall – very nice.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Nancy is a brilliant legislative strategist. Public speaking, not so much.

    • YoBunnyBunny

      I’m almost terrified she’s having a stroke or something… Is that anti-Old of me? But if this is the way she always talks, yeah not good public speaking.

      • House0fTheBlueLights

        She’s actually doing pretty well, for Pelosi.

        • YoBunnyBunny

          Oh, Well then… carry on.

      • CripesAmighty

        Yeah. She’s always been like that (cringe).

      • Suttree

        I am a better public speaker than she is, and I do my best to never speak to anyone EVAR. I would like to thank my speech therapists for helping me to say the letter R and to stop mumbling. It took me 3 years to say R and 3 years to enunciate. I now have a face voice for radio.

    • Daisy

      I love her, but you are right.

  • Mojo

    Nancy is this your first run through of this speech?

    • Parchment Scroll

      Earlier, she said “knowing from her knowledge” so I think so.

    • BadKitty904

      Hey, c’mon – she prolly can’t see as high as the teleprompter.

    • UncleTravelingMatt

      Wow, she is really bad.

  • Daisy

    I’m finally watching, been in and out all day. And yay for “no fly, no buy!”

    • Treg Brown

      Welcome Daisy!

        Hi Treg!

      Hi Daisy!

      • Daisy

        *waves* Hello Suse!

        • Suse

          Have you started classes yet?

          • Daisy

            Not until the 24th of next month. I move up on the 20th of next month though.

  • UncleTravelingMatt

    Each day. What kind of monster doesn’t think this is a big deal?

  • JMP

    I’ve met Ed several times, when he was first running for mayor there was a debate held at my high school and he was shaking hands outside my old subway station during both of his runs for Governor, and he was always so gregarious and friendly with everyone.

  • 3FingerPete

    She’s making me wonder what monsters are standing just off screen on either side of her.

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      It’s because the Botox is keeping her entire body from moving. I actually wonder if it affects her vocal chords because of the treatments to her neck.

    • Constant Gardener

      Is it the terrified smile or the unimaginably stilted reading?

      • Good_Gawd_Yall

        Yes.

  • Sardonicuss

    Her daughter makes some pretty cool documentaries.

  • Treg Brown

    That sweatband kinda looks last minute. No offense.

  • akryan

    She really is pretty shitty on the stage. sorry Nancy

    • Recipriversexclusons

      Can’t upstage the Star Performance.

  • BadKitty904

    My bf just asked me if that necklace is made of teeth…

  • 3FingerPete

    Try not to dry read your rallying cry.

  • Recipriversexclusons

    Pelosi may be small but she carries a BIG STICK!

  • I want her to be speaker again. Please.

    • Sardonicuss

      Only the most accomplished speaker of the last century.

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      You can thank DWS that that is not possible before 2022 when the new census redraws the congressional districts.

      • Grrrrr. Why do they make everything so hard? Stupid reality.

      • malsperanza

        Oh, I think Obama’s people are also at fault bigtime. They dropped the ball in 2010. O barely campaigned.

        • Astraea

          And DWS wasn’t head of the DNC then.

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      I want her to be speaker again, but I want them to call it something else. “motivator” or something. Not that I’m throwing shade about her skills or anything.

      • Hahaha – yeah, ok, Motivator of the House. With More Gavel.

      • Objectifer

        Thought that was the Whip.

  • BadKitty904

    Who’s this big palooka?

    • miss_grundy

      Tim Ryan, a Congressman who looks like he could have been a football player, maybe for Ohio or Ohio State.

      • BadKitty904

        They built him back when beef was cheap.

  • BadKitty904

    gritty!

  • Treg Brown

    Last night a wonker told us that they’re matching – complimenting the background colors to the speakers clothes and DAMN if they weren’t totally right.
    Attention to detail!

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      Whaaaa????

      • Treg Brown

        Pretty cool. This guy is complementary (gold and red) not matching, like Nancy Pelosi was

        • Daisy

          I didn’t know until it was pointed out last night, but it is damn impressive.

          • Treg Brown

            I’m equally impressed that there was a person on wonkette who noticed and could explain it to us!

    • BadKitty904

      Holy heck.

  • ViveLaRes

    OK, I don’t have time to be fucked with by Disqus tonight. You kids have fun!

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      • ViveLaRes

        IKR? Impatience is one of the many curses of old age :(

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    I need to know how they are changing the color of that backdrop.

    • Suse

      That basket weave thing?

      • House0fTheBlueLights

        Yes. It’s always different with each speaker.

        • Recipriversexclusons

          Telee mode ring.

        • CripesAmighty

          The background is composed of hi-res monitor screens. They can put any image they want, up. That basket weave motif seems to be the default.

          • YoBunnyBunny

            Really classy attention to detail.

    • tehbaddr

      Simply lighting. Doh’ yeah it’s a screen, though I’ve seen that done just with lights.

    • CripesAmighty

      it’s a digital image.

  • BadKitty904

    HELLS, yah!!! TELL it, Grandpa!

  • bubbuhh

    From the youtube chat box, it looks like all the RWhackaloons R watchin the DNC anyawyz, probably to gather some intelligence and rub it on their smarty bits.

    Seems Trump has a sad.

  • Astraea

    “The meat-cutters are on strike” is kind of a funny line, out of context.

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      Even funnier if you turn it into a fortune-cookie line: “The meat-cutters are on strike . . . in bed!”

      • House0fTheBlueLights

        Where are you getting your fortune cookies….

        • Good_Gawd_Yall

          heeheehee – my daughter-in-law taught me that!!

      • Astraea

        I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I want a working meat-cutter in bed.

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    #grumblemoanbitch is anybody else worn out already?

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      If “halfway through the bottle” is evidence of that, then yes.

    • Daisy

      A little. I’ve had a long day.

  • miss_grundy

    Cheetohead just got permission to hire 78 people from abroad for jobs at Mar-a-Lago, even though the local job center has hundreds of people who could do those jobs. What a douchebag.

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      Optics, optics, optics! Is this a great moment for him to shove that through, or what?
      Manafarts must be banging his head on the desk.

    • Suse

      That fact needs to be be publicized all over the place, although that will probably give him a boost in the polls.

      • feministing

        i actually this is one of the only things that could work to hit him with

    • malsperanza

      The optics seem not to worry him. Could it be that he’s not serious about this campaign?

      • Suse

        He’s probably nervous about debating Hillz.

    • Sardonicuss

      I wonder if they will wear generic camo, like they did in Ukraine.

  • BadKitty904

    Pie!

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Who’s up next. This doofus might be a good moment to go buy some chocolate, before I’m too drunk to drive.

    • YoBunnyBunny

      Yeah. Ice cream break!

    • Antonin Dvorak

      Kareem Abdul-Jabar.

    • malsperanza

      Doofus just picked up speed.

    • BigBoppa

      There’s a cannoli in the fridge with my name on it. Resisting the urge to had it til Hilz gets on. Easing the pain of anticipation with Pinot noir for now.

  • Parchment Scroll

    Profit sharing? Not super enthused about that. From past experience, it’s a bizarre carrot/stick combo.

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    Why do these dems keep hitting the xtian bullshit? I don’t wanna hear this.

    • Suse

      Yeah – it’s a bit off-putting

    • Recipriversexclusons

      Appeal to the lefty xtians. But. Yes.

    • miss_grundy

      Cause we have to demonstrate that we are not in league with Lucifer. That would be Fox TV in the fall.

      • AnOuthouse

        It’s going to be any way.

    • feministing

      eh it doesnt bother me. if anyone is gonna talk about it it should be the ones that most exemplify it

    • BadKitty904

      Hey, I *love* that verse!

      Despite having the name slimed by grifty horrible hypocritical fuzzy-mentalists, some of us progressives still like Jesus a lot.

  • Daisy

    Okay, does anyone else use Disqus’s main page for long threads like this? Cause I do, and it clogs up less. 1000 or less, Wonkette is fine, if a little slow, but my old computer can only handle so much strain.

    • Suse

      Hmm… interesting. Last night I had to completely close the page and open it again many times.

      • Daisy

        Yeah, that’s what I do normally.

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      how do you do that?

      • Daisy

        I follow Wonkette, go to the home page (I get to Disqus by clicking my notifications) click on Wonkette.com, then click the comment for whatever article I’m trying to get to.

        • Good_Gawd_Yall

          Okay, for an old like me that is a lot of steps but I’m gonna try it. if you don’t see me again until tomorrow you’ll know I’m lost somewhere in the intertubes.

          • Suttree

            Bring breadcrumbs!

    • Suttree

      How do you do that? I’m still running xp but I refuse to get a new computer until this one catches fire.

      • Daisy

        Posted under Good_God_Yall for you guys! :)

        • Suttree

          Yay! I figured it out! Thank you kindly!

      I has a BIGLY Persocom

  • BadKitty904

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaand cue the damned onions…

  • Parchment Scroll

    Wait, I thought Barrack tagged HRC for SecState and she shouldered it, not that she volunteered.

    • akryan

      Whatever. Don’t fuck with a tagline.

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    Middle linebacker’s done already? too bad so sad

  • Sardonicuss
  • Courser

    Holy shit, what happened to Andrea Mitchell’s face? It’s probably unkind to point it out, but…WTF?

    • Suse

      Watching CSPAN to avoid Tweety and friends. I miss Rachel, though.

      • ltmcdies

        Rachel’s seems to have been off…

      • Courser

        Eh, she’s been kinda pissing me off this week. She thought that Bill’s recollection of courting Hillary was… she didn’t say creepy but it felt that she was implying it. I thought it was charming.

    • miss_grundy

      No matter the amount of plastic surgery, she has turned into an old bitter crone.

    • akryan

      Sadly, no longer a 10

    • feministing

      she’s horrible, don’t feel bad

    • Vecchiojohn

      I ask myself the same looking in the mirror every day.

      • Suse

        I had cataract surgery and was appalled at how bad I looked when I could actually see again.

        • Vecchiojohn

          I got off the bus with my walking stick a few months ago and a guy I his twenties said, “How you doing, old timer?”

          • Suse

            Aww…

          • Courser

            Fuck that guy!!! I too felt that particular sad, when I hot young guy was being really nice to me. I realized that he was being nice, not because he likes the way I look, but because I’m an old lady. In my brain, I’m eternally 27

          • Vecchiojohn

            Actually, I just laughed and congratulated him on being the first person to call me that. To whichever replied, Hard to believe. And I laughed even harder.

            I’m kind of a doofus when you get right down to it.

          • malsperanza

            Did you beat him about the ears with it?

        • Courser

          Well, yeah, I hear that. If I haven’t worn my contacts in a few days, it’s kinda ‘Yikes!’ when I can see *really* well.

    • Suse

      She’s got amazing arms, though.

  • AnOuthouse

    Evan found his glasses and a new Shirt! Scoop some dirt. That’s why you’re there.

  • I’m kind of sad this convention is going to be over tonight. It’s been fun! Couldn’t we maybe stretch it out till the weekend?

    • IdRatherBeDancing

      I love it but have been burning the candle at both end cause I go to the gym early — I’m sooooooo tired

    • Jukesgrrl

      We should get an extra day because some people who shall not be named messed up Monday.

  • BadKitty904

    Goldwyn’s aged VERY nicely and really has an impressive voice…

    • feministing

      i still remember him as the dude from ghost

    • Recipriversexclusons

      He’s doin’ some good speechifyin’

  • BadKitty904

    “…by sitting down, she stood up for…” Very nice.

  • feministing

    i love what a big hillz supporter he is

    • BadKitty904

      IKR? Who knew?

  • BadKitty904

    The Rising Sun!

  • Recipriversexclusons

    Land of the Rising Sun – Japan????

  • BadKitty904

    Hickenlooper?

  • miss_grundy

    They are playing a lot of hits by Chicago tonight. Could it be because of Hillz?

  • 3FingerPete

    What’s funny is all three of those have happened to me.

  • CripesAmighty

    Always liked Hickenlooper. Seems like a joyful soul.

  • BadKitty904

    Dang, Loop!

  • Daisy

    “My business didn’t go bankrupt six times!”

  • malsperanza

    How many warmup bands obligatory speeches by worthy Dems up for reelection do we have to sit through before Springsteen Clinton comes out?

    • BigBoppa

      AOT, K

    • miss_grundy

      Perhaps another two hours. But we also have Chelsea introducing her.

      • malsperanza

        Not a huge Chelsea fan. Becky with the good hair and the $10.5 million condo.

        • House0fTheBlueLights

          I pray that the Obama girls do not turn into Chelsea. (Although in her defense, she does NOT have “good hair”– serious 4c mop)

          • malsperanza

            Their parents have stricter values, frankly.

          • Lynn A Myers

            Sigh!

      • Jukesgrrl

        C-SPAN has a countdown clock on the screen.

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      it’s Worthy Dems who aren’t Great Speakers Night at the DNC! Just think of it as political karaoke.

      • Daisy

        “We love the work you do, but I’m sleeping through your speech, mmkay?”

      • CripesAmighty

        Think this is bad? Try ‘Platform and Resolutions’ at a State Party convention. Gaaaaack!

    • Suse

      They need to bring on all of the contractors stiffed by Drumpf to talk about how he ruined them.

  • Recipriversexclusons

    2nd strongest economy in the country! Weed cures all ails.

  • BadKitty904

    So, you’re saying Drumpf is a dick? Hmm, I see.

    • ltmcdies

      apparently he’s threatening to hit some “little guy” who said nasty things about…money bets say he’s talking about Bloomberg

      • miss_grundy

        He should be careful. Little guys can punch low.

      • BadKitty904

        Bloomie will hand him his intestines.

        • CripesAmighty

          Yup. Dump likes to use ‘market power’ to push others around–Bloomberg’ll flatten him like a squirrel under a Peterbilt.

          • Jukesgrrl

            And his daughter will jump over the body on her show horse.

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    Even the delegates are starting to look more than a little exhausted.

    • Recipriversexclusons

      12 hour days TBS

      • malsperanza

        For the past 3 months, they have had to drink a shot every time Turnip tripped over his dick.

        • Jen_Baker_VA

          Their livers are all dead, aren’t they.

  • Suse

    I thought Ted and Mary split up.

  • BigBoppa

    Sam Malone got old.

  • I haven’t seen Ted Danson in forever.

    • Jukesgrrl

      He goes on talk shows all the time pumping up his save-the-oceans organization while they’re trying to make him talk about whatever TV show he’s guesting on.

      • I don’t watch enough talk shoes, I guess. Saving the oceans is good , though.

    • Frank The Rat

      “Fargo”, season two. He rocks. Also, oldest Airborne officer ever in Saving Private Ryan.

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    Awww, look, it’s Mary Steenburgen – the most exciting speaker best actress ever!

  • malsperanza

    Oh dear, B list actors time.

    • As long as we don’t drag out Scott Baio, we’re fine.

      • BadKitty904

        lol

      • david green

        Dragging (with votes) would be very appropriate.

    • Daisy

      Hey, at least it’s B list. The F list would’ve been insulted by the RNC’s actors.

  • BadKitty904

    An archaeologist’s son. Who knew?

  • Frank The Rat

    Fortunately Cuomo has squawked off the stage. Of hell to the yes, my governor John Hickenlooper is talking now. Slow it down John. You’ve got a great story but you’re Daffy Duck ing it.

    Oh shit, Mary Steenburgen is on. I’ll be in my bunk.

  • Apple Scruff

    They are just the cutest,

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    I need one of those messages from your possible president goof-ups from Fanta Hitler to wake me up.

  • CripesAmighty

    Switched to Tweety cuz I don’t give a shit about what Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen think, and theyre playing Ted and…Fuck.

  • miss_grundy

    Detroit is in the house!

  • Jukesgrrl

    As a Pennsylvania resident of many years (including all of Big Eddie’s administration), I didn’t agree with all of his policies and positions. But he was always on the side of human rights and he never suppressed any voters, unlike some other PA governators I could name. I’m sure Evan enjoyed talking with him because is IS quite the schmoozer and charming every time I ever met him. And when I once confronted him about something I didn’t like in a neighborhood meeting, he LISTENED to me. But then he had to go ruin it by being an Eagles fan.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Aw see, being an Eagles fan was one of his top redeeming qualities to me.
      You don’t mayor Philly and be a friggin Giants fan. That be a dumb.

      • Justno

        I’m surprised that’s legal.

        • docterry6973

          Legal but extremely dangerous.

    How is Lula, are you taking proper care of her? My dog JJ is most demanding, yesterday he barked from the bedroom, he didn’t want up, he wanted to have his tummy rubbed, yeah, he owns me, of course he took me for a walk today. We sniffed stuff, he did some marking, yes I got to bag poop.

  • URQ196

    Best dog in the whole wide worldwide, nah he’s not spoiled

    If Ed Rendell won’t schmooze with you, you must be dead.

    AND smell very, very bad.

    • Citizen Sissy

      Ed would go to the opening of a door.

  • Donkey Option

    Ed Rendell spoke at my college graduation and made a joke about asking your parents for money now because they’re so amazed you managed to graduate, this is your best chance to have them say yes. It was snarky and funny and he seemed pretty cool.

  • Citizen Sissy

    As a longtime Center City Philly office drone, I’ve seen Ed as both Mayor and Governor – he’s an old-school politician in the best sense. He loves pressing the flesh, and I’ve seen him gladhand on sidewalks, office lobbies, and food courts. He can be found on Election Day at the Clothespin exhorting commuters to vote.

    He gets mad props for successfully navigating two terms as Governor in the city-hating Pennsylvania legislature as both a native New Yorker and a Philadelphian.
