  •  The shorter Tasini: (8+ / 0-)

    In a truly progressive society, a great baseball player would hit at least 1500 home runs in his career.  It is a sign of how truly leaderless we are, from Congress to the White House, that people are slobbering over Babe Ruth's 714 home runs.  Obviously Babe Ruth sucked.

      In a truly progressive society, snide nonsense from Impolitics would elicit a chorus of loud jeers.

        •  Oh, my, back in junior high, are we? (0+ / 0-)

          Actually, it's sort of sweet that you are so in touch with your inner 12-year-old that you actually resorted to that school cafeteria gambit of "I'm not going to talk to that yucky boy who just said that mean thing about me, so what I'll do is talk about him to my best friend sitting next to me, but loud enough for everyone to hear."

          By the way, things that don't make sense to YOU are not necessarily things that don't make sense -- if anything, quite the opposite.

      •  Um, no, that would be the shorter YOU, tle (0+ / 0-)

        You see, when you use that rhetorical device of "the shorter so-and-so," you're supposed to give an abbreviated version of what you think THAT person is in essence saying.  What you've done here is given us given us your own thinking -- which completely misses the point.  FYI, this is generally a set-up for a satirical observation of some sort, so you're also supposed to say something clever, but that is clearly beyond you.

        But hey, you got an actual former candidate for the U.S. Senate to toss you a doggie biscuit and rub your belly, so your clueless post was not a total loss.

      In progressive terms, he's more like Terry Pendleton of the Braves.

      But your point is still fairly well taken.
