    •  This looks like an argument to me: (12+ / 0-)

      Never, ever, ever, ever ever would there have been 16 Republican Senators to remove Bush from office, and a failed impeachment would be a disaster.  Conyers was dealing in the world of political reality, where one is responsible for the forseeable consequences of one's actions.  To pretend that good things would have come from a failed impeachment or that 16 Republican senators--17, assuming Joementum wouldn't have voted to convict--would have removed Bush from office is delusional.  

      None of your personal attacks were the slightest bit responsive.

      When you're gonna put up a diary?

      When it's worth my time to write one.

        Gotta be like 2005 at least.

        LMAO.

        Well, have fun trying to autoban people anyway.

        It's silly, but it's also funny!

        •  July, 2005--IIRC. (8+ / 0-)

          And I usually do.  Who did you used to be again?

          •  Holy shit I got it right! (2+ / 3-)

            Who do you think I am?

            It would be fucking fascinating to look them up.

            I don't come from KOS.

            I come from somewhere smart.

            Happy morning though.

            Your life must be sadder than mine.

            •  Well then... (9+ / 0-)

              I come from somewhere smart.

              Why not go back there.

              Your life must be sadder than mine.

              Kinda doubt that.

            •  If you aren't able to answer your own (0+ / 0-)

              questions about who you were before, or even who you want us to believe you are now, how in the heck can you know yourself?

              More importantly, how can you do any justice to your own positions when you have chosen to insult and play "happy" little "punch the clown" exercises.

              You minimise the important points you might be trying to make when you join in this juvenile masquerade of taunting and pissing in the wind.

              Either "spill it out" or "give it up."  The haggling minimizes the overall importance of the discussion.  Trying to pretend others are stupid while your brilliance shine is not a wise move on your part.

              What is really missing is your wise moves and important information for this discussion.  Otherwise, it belongs in the sandbox at the playground.  The kittens have pottied in the sand so you ought not throw it in anyone's eyes.

              You can do much better and  await you doing so.  If not, you seserve HR's which I will be glad to issue when you call others names or make baseless accusations.

              Hope your day turned out much better than it started.

        ...he ignores the vital difference between an impeachment widely perceived and understood to be partisan witch hunting and one widely perceived and understood to be based on widespread outrage at publicly revealed crimes and violations of the Constitution of the United States.

        The only delusion operating here is DH's.

    •  If control is your game, you ought to shush (0+ / 0-)

      right away.

      No one is going to respond to posting a diary because you said so or because there is an irresistible topic.

      What the hecky darn is the matter with you that you would wait breathlessly for a diary from MajorFlaw?

      Shamefully, it just looks like you view yourself the winner who can report and destroy MJ where numerous flat dicks have tried and failed.  My apologies if you are a woman and I stereotyped you, but this situation seems to repeat itself day after day without any winners.

      Amuse me or tell me to go to hell, but what is it about your argument that has any merit against Major Flaw other than your not liking him and hoping to get other kossians to not like him?

      May be wrong, but it doesn't look like you are making any headway here other than making an ass out of yourself.  Maybe it is time to stop.
