    But seriously, this shit is over the top crazy. Imagine they had some point, just for the sake of argument, does that mean we'd need to keep everyone over 6'4 and 275lbs off airplanes? What about Chuck Norris? He shouldn't be allowed within 2 miles of an airport. (Though he's Chuck effing Norris, how would we keep him away?) Pretty soon the only folks allowed to fly will be octogenarian paraplegics because anyone else is too scary for the likes of Steve Doocy.

    GOP 2014 strategy -- Hire clowns, elephants, and a ringmaster and say "a media circus" has emerged and blame Democrats for lack of progress. Have pundits agree that "both sides are to blame" and hope the public will stay home on election day.

    •  First of all, ontheleftcoast, Chuck Norris is (8+ / 0-)

      5'9 and about 175 pounds. So there's that. There's also a boatload of advanced degrees in martial arts. The man had a hip replacement two, maybe three years ago. He can still kick ass and take names.

      Am I gonna tell him he can't sing? Not just no but hell no. But he knows I don't listen to the crap he preaches 'cause I really am from Texas, and I can choose not to listen to his WorldNutDaily rants.

      Stevie Doodoocy, on the other hand, we can affect.
      By turning off his stupid show and writing his sponsors why we won't buy their crap when they peddle it on his show.

      •  I don't know where this Chuck Norris crap (4+ / 0-)

        came from, but he's no martial arts master. He's a guy who learned a new kick in 1965 or so and used it to win a couple of martial arts competitions, then became a bad actor for 40 years. Now he's a brain-dead conservative blowhard and shill for bullshit home gyms.

        I know quite a few people who could have kicked his ass forty years ago, and could do so today. Yeah, he's an "8th dan" tae kwon do master,  and that and $5 will get you a mocha latte.

        The reason they call the "Chuck Norris is so tough" lines jokes, is because he is a joke.

        •  I've seen him in person (0+ / 0-)

          but that was in the 1970s on an Air Force base, when he was doing a promo tour for "Good Guys wear black."

          You sound like a real tough guy, Captain Frogbert. Why don't you stand up to him? After all, he's 74 -- and he's got an artificial hip.

          Born: March 10, 1940 (age 74), Ryan, OK
          Height: (1.78 m)

        •  Off topic, but I gotta add... (0+ / 0-)

          Completely agree on 40 years of bad acting and being a brain-dead conservative blowhard.

          But, for the record, he didn't win a "couple of martial arts competitions,", he was WORLD KARATE CHAMPION 8 times in a row.

          He was actually QUITE formidable in his day.

          Still a bad actor.
          Still a neocon nutjob.

          Still a joke.

          Bruce Lee, on the other hand, was TRULY the REAL DEAL!

          Never trust anyone who considers "bleeding heart" to be an insult.

    •  Much easier (0+ / 0-)

      to simply declare that there is no such thing as "unarmed" so everyone is fair game. If someone gives you so much as a dirty look just shoot 'em and argue about it later. Depending on the race of your victim you will find supporters somewhere.

        from some sad "both sides do it" problems. Either way, comment fail.
