    I didn't really disagree that Republicans were homophobes. I said that a homophobe has an ever-shrinking chance of becoming President, although I guess that politicians could resort to "coded" language like they mostly have with regards to race.

    I am not watchign all of CPAC. I tuen in for a few, watch something else, come back, etc. And in the scattered bits I am catching it's like the whole thing is on rewind but with different speakers. Every single person from Paul to Cruz(who is on now) says the same things: Religious liberty is under assault! Spending is out of control! The Founding Fathers were all religious!

    3: Rick Santorum 8%
    4: Chris Christie 7%
    5: Paul Ryan 6%
    6: Scott Walker 5%
    7/8: Ben Carson 4%
    7/8: Ted Cruz 4%
    9/10: Sarah Palin 3%
    9/10: Bobby Jindal 3%


    Good for Christie, since he wasn't even invited.

    Sarah Palin being in the Top 10... [face_laugh]

    Chris Christie is probably the most sensible of the bunch(not that I would vote for him), yet he is below not only Rand, not only Rubio, but one of the Kings Of Derpism the amazing Rick Santorum.

    My little cousin was reading the Federalist Papers recently, and i felt a little sad when i thought that that sort of thing will never happen again.

    All we'll ever see now is morons being moronic on tv...

    Did the statue of liberty at one point use to be bright copper colored? That would have been quite a sight. But this look suits it as well.

    The Bible History Channle show, Satan looks like Obama?

    [IMG]

    Yup.

    "As The Hollywood Reporter notes, "The Bible" comes to viewers from acclaimed reality-TV producer Mark Burnett and his wife, Roma Downey. Burnett has donated to Democratic causes in the past (though he also produces Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" and worked on "Sarah Palin's Alaska." Downey is known as being highly religious and also producers "Little Angels," a Christian show for children. "

    [face_dunno] I don't know. I call low end shenanigans but shenanigans none the less.

    I really don't think so. Does every middle-aged man with dark skin, thick eyebrows, and big eyes look like Obama?

    I'd forgotten about that show. I'm just curious enough to consider watching it myself.

    I remember when the History Channel was actually about history...and Hitler. Mostly Hitler.

    That should give you an idea of how long it's been since I was willing to watch or even pay for television.

    in the 1950's the closest this woman would come to politics would be cleaning the stains outta Harry Trumans underpants... Now she has an actual platform to speak to her fellow idiots.

    I personally believe its the sign of the times and this anti intellectual movement that follows people such as her. Things like facts and science don't sway her fans.

    Apparently it was. Here's a mockup for what it would have looked like:

    And just for the shiggles, here's what the old French bird looked like when she was still getting her gear on over in Paris:

    Yeah, that was God the Catholic Church hippie socialists Greenpeace chose that colour for her. Don't worry about this thing called oxidation due to the chemical reaction of copper with the air, that's got nothing to do with it. :p

    didn't years back they started putting something on it? I could've sworn I heard that at some point in time.

    Apparently they had to redo the torch in gold leaf a few years back because some fool caused too much damage putting windows in the thing, but that's about all I heard. I don't think they intended to change the colour?
