GOTCHA MOMENT! You mean, a VOTER asking a question?

Super glad Katie actually called a spade a spade

Awww, isn't that cute, the Somali pirates are channeling Greenpeace. If Greenpeace were an armed and dangerous ragtag band of desperate men in it for the money...

Speaking of boats, we've now had 3 boat collisions in less than 2 weeks. What's up with that? Besides idiots who shouldn't be driving boats driving boats.

"Not ready for prime time?" Very clever, Katie Couric. I don't think Palin and McCain got it, but it was clever.

lmao...mccain is so uncomfortable.

@3: Oh man, I didn't catch that either until just now. That's great.

Why don't we ever hear anything about the NAACP dealing with all the black-on-black crime in this and other cities?

At least the pirates still work in dollars. Once they move to Euros, we're fucked.

Do McCain and Palin really want to keep blaming the media for their troubles? It might provide an excuse to their political base, but it's not going to help them get elected.

As for not showing your cards, what about GWB announcing the start of the war 48 hours ahead of time, and JMC singing "Bomb Iran"?

re: Drinking: Ok, Mr. Sues-a-lot, I have a deal for you. You can totally get into bars free, with cheap drinks, if I get to make 30% more each year than you, for the rest of my life. Also, you get to be the subject of rape and violence about 50% more!

Sweet deal, huh? Yeah, I ladies have it MADE. Go ahead, have 3 Long Islands, it's on me.

Why am I still seeing WAMU commercials?

1. how about living longer, does that count, too? OR do we throw that out of the picture for some reason?

2. So it's okay for guys to pay money (cover charge) basically to be able to ogle and hit on chicks??
Isn't this just a way for the bar owner to objectify women and make money off of that?

3. What about the white guys who don't make shit, who are not making 30% more? Like the unemployed, the illiterate, the out of work. Or, take black guys. Maybe we should assume each and every one of them sufered discrmination too.

OR take chicks like.....Michelle...oh make that Carly Fiorina. Who got millions. she should get in for free, too, right? while a white guy who'se out of work becuase his factory got shipped over the china, he should pay a cover charge?

OR is asking any questions proof of vile sexism there fore there should be no discussion and no debate?

This is one of those things where I suspect frequent calls to "have a conversation about it" are not in fact genuine calls to have a real conversation. But that's a generalization based on past experience.

You could prove that that generalization does not fit this instance.

Uh, what? PC, have you tried medication?

Posted by Fnarf | September 30, 2008 10:23 AM

pc, why would a broke-ass, unemployed illiterate attend ladies night, anyway? wouldn't he have to be delusional, as well?

Posted by ellarosa | September 30, 2008 10:24 AM

Regarding the CNN article on the ladies night lawsuit, it's misandry not feminism.
