  •  Hey! I'll make appetizers! (3+ / 0-)

    And, look, I'm a straight WASP -- you're not cutting us out of the party are you?

      I'm Roman Catholic and a liberal who lives in a town of 30% Democratic registration (and its a swing state...)  can I join you in watching the GOP start using speeches from Jefferson Davis when they're stumping or if certain canidates get REALLY honest there's an Austrian who has some similar ideological stances... ;)

      Do we really want straight WASPs making the appetizers?  Oh well, toss in a bag of chips and some guacamole, and we'll make a place for you.

      •  Prejudice doesn't become you... (9+ / 0-)

        I'll have you know that I can do everything from gyoza (Japanese 'pot stickers') to a great antipasta platter.  And just day before yesterday the flowers I picked out for my girl, stem-by-stem, were given spontaneous compliments from several florist customers, "You're not an interior designer?!" said one of them.  

        So, just because I'm a white Methodist guy who likes girls, don't you dare assume that I don't know the virtues Stilton cheese, or that Duncan Fyfe was not a linebacker for the '68 Colts, that I don't like cats, or that I can't tell the difference between Imari and Nabeshima porcelain.

        Now, quit with your stereotypes and go back to adjusting your track lighting while Bette Midler plays in the background!

         I hate it when we fight.

          I'm more of a Dinah Washington queen, if you must know.

          So when are you stopping by the bunker?  Your choices sound yummy.  Hope you know I was teasing.

            Actually, that sounds more like Cheney's hangout.  

            Funny thing is (really), if things'll keep trending the way their trending, it's the NeoThugs that'll have to be hunkering down in there various "undisclosed locations".  They're certainly fighting like cornered beasts now, and will get ever-more-shrill over the next several months, but -- as Hunter points out -- it's really not anything we are doing:  it's their own failed policies, corruption and a sick-and-tired-of-it American populace that's backing them into a corner.  We're just watching the show.

            Pass the popcorn, my friend.
