3. Best I can do is Charlie Rangel's comment on W Bush
"He sure disproves that theory about racial superiority."
Not sure if it fits but I love using it.

22. If you have to ask, you'll never have them.
When one is as charismatic, awesome, handsome, intelligent, and smell as good as me minions are just part of the deal.

They just sort of appear out of nowhere.




I'm not even going to adress the 'windows' question.


:P

10. The fact that you're drunk all the time, and still have these reasoned thoughts
speaks volumes.

21. Or at least have them line up so that we could kick them in their ass.
But you know, they never learn....and are on to a new folklore each and every day.

23. ROLF.> Yeah, it had such a major effect on the election!
I can see how you'd be worried.

:rofl:

(for the record, I'm not laughing at you but at the idea of the Bradley effect)
