    has been wined, dined, whined, and bribed (future tense) by those on K street, with a treat so enticing, so filled with zeros at the end, and so suggestive of comfort and riches, that no normal man could say no.

    Add to that, Doddster is no normal man. He was insane and deluded enough to run for presidon't. He was deluded enough to think that as one of 100 blessed minigods, that he was better than the rest of us, and that he EARNED his future riches.

    To put it bluntly, F U C K D O D D .

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      financial reward in running for President.  It seems like an awful thing to do but so many really unqualified people do it that there has to be some sort of money to be made there.  Sarah Palin is a perfect example...she had become rich off being an also ran.

        Ever been on stage? I have, many times. Many theater events, many song and dance events, and between teaching law, giving speeches as a professional, it is not as though I have some fear of standing up and making a fuel of meself. Having one so all those many times, you do grow some thicker skin.

        When the crowd is with you, there is an energy that flow from it to you. When you fuck up, the energy goes the other way.

        When you run for office, that energy is magnified. When you run for state office, even more so. I have heard from friends of dick durbin, that he once said running for senate was the biggest aphrodisiac he ever experienced.

        Remember that there are 100 senatwhores, and only one president. The ego, magic, power, energy, thrill, control, love, hate, and more that you experience must be on a level that would blow the minds of mere mortals, and ergo, only a few more special people can actually take the steps of running for president.

        What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

          both to yourself and your family but that's me.  I don't need people to feed me BS in order to feel good about myself, in fact sycophants irritate the shit out of me...but I am a born cynic.

            really is a silly office. Too bad Sir Monty Python is not available for  a candidacy.
