    I'll miss his Freddie Mercury mustache.

      I don't have the facial hair density to support a beast like that.  If I let mine go, it can get long, but stringy.  His is like the definition of a cop mustache.

    •  He never should have been elected. (2+ / 0-)

      Our 2003 candidate was worlds overqualified than him.

        dragged him over the finish line?

        In fact, the occasional victory for the GOP cannot hide the fact that this country is fast heading into another era, not of two-party democracy, but a party-and-a-half system. And the GOP is the half a party- Larry Sabato

          Is this the Richie Farmer that was on the Pitino team that lost to Duke in the greatest college basketball game ever played (said as a fan that despises both Duke an UK)? I always get this confused...

            I remember watching that game as I was in law school at Duke at the time and watching all the games, although my heart has always belonged to Iowa State and I quickly became indifferent to Duke after graduation.

            I just checked the box score, Farmer played 15 minutes off the bench and scored 9 points and added a board, an assist, 2 fouls, and 3 turnovers.  A forgettable performance in an overtime game where 9 different guys on both teams combined scored in double figures.

      ...on the Kentucky hoops team, too.

      Major college basketball and football stars on the better teams aren't the cleanest whistles in the locker room to begin with.  Toss in a guy who is already predisposed to ignore society's rules, and there you go!
