I don't watch much commercial TV, so I had not heard of this breathtaking story until this evening. I'm all excited now.
Just imagine the possibilities! Geena Davis as the first female President of the United States! I'll bet you that she is a Republican, too! She's gonna be a fiscal conservative, a hawk on defense, a hard-headed fighter in the War on Terror, and someone who disapproves of Affirmative Action. She'll say she's pro-life but that she doesn't agree that abortion should be illegal. She'll toss illegal immigrants out of the country left and right and she'll tell the United Nations to kiss her pretty ass if that corrupt bunch of slimeballs get in her way.
Man! THAT'S gonna be a GREAT show! I am certain that Geena will remind me a lot of Margaret Thatcher with the way she runs the country.
Or maybe not. She COULD be a leftist barking moonbat, much like Martin Sheen's character in "
Left West Wing." Nawwwww.... Hollywood wouldn't do THAT again, would it? Nah. No way.
Now.... wanna bet?
You-->"Or maybe not. She COULD be a leftist barking moonbat"
(Thanks for makin me laugh tonight) :)
Guess what, Rob...
She plays a Democrat!!!
I am gonna laugh my ass off after these idiot right wing, (taliban-like) religious fundamentalists do away with the filibuster. Then when the Democrats take back control of Congress in 2006, and Hillary wins in 2008, it will all come back to bite them in the ass. That's reality........not TV!
My reaction was: "That show STILL comes on?"
PJ, if the Democrats win in 06, they could do away with the filibuster themselves, so what, exactly, is your point? If they win they have the power to do the same thing... duh.
My point is...only these assholes would do something so stupid as to take away the filibuster. It has not been done in over 214 years. The filibuster assures the minority some level of power and is a major part of our checks and balances system. That is what has made America great for so long. These far right, neoconservative Republicans (not sensible, moderate Republicans) are all about abuse of power.
PJ is right. If it weren't for the filibuster, us Democrats never could have kept civil rights legislation blocked for so long.
We lost that battle, but we aren't gonna lose this one. I'm with ya PJ.
She made a hell of a pirate captain, why not a president? Seems that the two have quite a bit in common
I fail to see the "EVIL RAIGHT-WANG PUBLICAN'S" you're talking about. What I DON'T fail to see is a soaring national debt, a trade imbalance that would embarrass most Democrats, and a semi-existant border with Mexico that neither party will ever address unless they're FORCED to.
The Neoconservatives are little more than liberals with an "R" next to their name. The actual "Right-Wing" of America can be found here:
JG22 damn I hope not. Right wing America usually can be found in their respective churches praying to their diety that we fiscal conservatives and small l libertarians will support them in the next election--even though they are bankrupting the country and trying to force religion down our throats. Most of what I read here is not right wing-more like thinking American who want the fucking government off our backs and out of our lives
Yes, but my view of the political spectrum indicates that the farther left you are, regardless of party affiliation, the more you wish to increase government's control over the population, endorse increasingly regulatory policies, Communists exemplifying the farthest extent of this extreme. The farther right you are, the more you want the government to get smaller and butt the fuck out of your life, the "big L" Libertarians being at the very edge of this extreme. The Republicans are trending away from this extreme, moving increasingly towards the center, and the Evangelical branch of the party is still in favor of policies that the national culture no longer wants backing it up. We seem to prefer the right to watch people rut like barnyard animals on TV over the right to pray in public, so how do the Christian policy-makers think they can be of any real influence in a culture that has grown increasingly hostile to them?
