Pierce faked his injury. Lakers in 5.

Oh, the NBA finals have started?  Oh, good!  No more Sonics-rush traffic for awhile.

WiS - you claim to have served in the Canadian Army as an engineer or was it in the Special Forces in Nam, I forgot.

The Lakers suck. If you don't agree with that then you are worthless!!!!!

Bush must be quaking in his BVDs over that Senate report that he's a lying liar who's lied his ass off about everything.

Oh noes! He'd better stop raping our country and the world or the Senate might issue another report!!!111!!!

who can help Obama win the most?? Richardson? Clark? Warner? The AppalacHian hisckter marine dude Webb? Bland Bayh? Who do the Obama people want for VP anyway, apart from not HRC?

Maybe time for a poll.

Meanwhile, the meeting last night was not at HRC home but at Seen. Feinstein's home. Why not at Obama's place? What is his place in DC anyway, we still don't know a lot about him.

HRC lives on Whitehaven street NW, a woodsy stroll to VP mansion....Perfect for Bill's rendezvous's back at the manse...

Unity, y'all.

That sticky little "is"

excuse the repeat and kids, don't do drugs
(or if you must, then don't do cheap drugs.)

According to MSN it is also National Doughnut Day. How does something get to be a national day? Did elected people vote it into being? Did the lobbying involve large quantities of doughnuts?

Posted by PopTart | June 6, 2008 9:40 AM

PopTart @14, yes, and yes.

RE: the Obama-Clinton meeting, when I first saw the article in the NY Times this morning, I wasn't awake enough to fully grasp that it wasn't in Northwest Washington STATE, but rather Northwest Washington DC, and was briefly very cranky that both candidates were here. Then I woke the fuck up and realized that I'm an idiot for thinking something important would happen here.

#17 baby, you can feel it comin'.

(I think I root more for Boston sports teams now than I did when I was *in* Boston.)

So now that unPC is done giving the Republicans ammunition to use against Obama, you're now busy going through every likely VP and doing GOP opposition research against each of them, too.

You know, there was a Republican ratfucker for Hillary at our caucus. They sounded just like you.

So instead of analyzing bullshit polls yourself, now you just link to astrophysicists analyzing bullshit polls.

My scrolling finger thanks you.

This analysis does not predict what will happen in November.

It was pretty funny last night watching all the news twits "going live" to the super-sekret meeting, with LIVE! footage of parked cars in the dark and breathtaking special reports on how many lights were on in which windows "but we still don't know anything for certain, Anderson, but we think they're inside".

Many experts believe they may have been discussing the recent primary campaign and issues relating to the upcoming convention and general election.

Next up on The News - Non-Meetings of the Global Warming implementation committee at the Capitol and White House! Film at 11!

(and I served in a number of units, mostly engineering but also infantry, and Tim E is still a coward)

Remember, every day is doughnut day, but only one day out of the year is National Doughnut Day!

Party On!

unPC @10:

"The face-to-face meeting, initiated by Mrs. Clinton....

"Mr. Obama agreed to meet Mrs. Clinton on her terms — at the location and time of her choosing"


"Or was it happening at Mr. Obama’s small duplex on Capitol Hill?"

You're a "reporter" right? All of this information is out there, you just have to want to look for it. Or you can keep insulting our intelligence.

and where is this video you keep talking about?

Posted by cochise. | June 6, 2008 11:02 AM

Yeah, wasn't that Michelle Obama video supposed to be out? Sigh.

Posted by w7ngman | June 6, 2008 11:42 AM

Except for her fab makeup, looks like Nancy should just say "no to meth". To achieve that perfect "Social X-Ray Look", some drugs may be indicated.

Posted by RHETT ORACLE | June 6, 2008 11:50 AM

For someone who was supposedly "ready to govern from Day 1", Hillary is taking one helluva long time to figure out how to endorse Obama.

Posted by Mahtli69 | June 6, 2008 1:36 PM

ms. "unity, y'all", care to share with the class what PUMA stands for?

you're a fucking scumbag, unPC. that can't be said enough.
