      dembum's unwavering devotion to Bayh without recognizing the error of this bill reminds me of a battered spouse saying, "He loves me. He would never hurt me. It's just a misunderstanding..."

        I personally take offense--dembum is refelcting poorly on all us -bums.

        •  folk, I think he's dembuRNs, not dembuMs (none)
          But, then, my eyes are starting to go.

          Either way, he reflects poorly on the "bums" or the "burns"...

          •  I know (none)
            But for more than a year here--probably because of the MT font, or something; it hasn't happened much since the Scoop transition--I was constantly being referred to as folkbuRN.  Also, often, folkbLum.

            I saw Johnny's comment, and had to jump in.

            •  Okay, folkblum (none)
              Thanks for clearling that up.
              •  I swear (4.00)
                the funniest joke I ever told in my long, illustrious dKos career came when someone asked me what I was going to do with all the Ls people put in my name.

                "I keep in my desk at school," I said.  "Could come in handy--I never know what they'll cut next."

            well, on a tiny iBook monitor, with a bolded font, it's often hard to see things like that. Must've been thinking of the Yankees sobriquet, "dem bums."
