Only a few of my Christmas lights are gullible.  :)

I told them that the word "gullible" isn't in the dictionary. And they looked!

Then I told them if you look up the word "Dictionary" in the dictionary, it says "you're holding it, stupid!" and they checked!

Then I told them that cleanliness is next to godliness. So they looked and let me know that I was wrong. Cleanliness was next to clean and cleanly. Godliness is next to God and goggles.

Wait, were you talking about light bulbs? Sorry, I was thinking about Obama voters.  :)

You know some of these people had the "fooled once" excuse, I'll give them that. But I've seen them driving around with Obama 2012 stickers now. There is NO excuse for that level of stupidity!

When I see one of those stickers, I don't know whether to or  ...So I usually just do both...

They only come out once a year and they're so jumbled up that it's infuriating? If they're seen during the year people think they're stupid and need to be put away?
Feel free to correct me on anything that i have said.

Of course not.  I'm sure there are folks of all different philosophies here.  But you've been the most vocal of those who seem to be closer to the other side of the spectrum (from right wing, that is), so I naturally wondered what your response to this would be.    At least I misspelled "informed" in keeping with the sign you posted above.  Don't I at least get points for that?

Naaaagh!
I'm pretty sure it's because I posted early on that I was a former Reaganite with my first vote as an 18 yr old enlisted............the "he betrayed the tribe" meme!
Plus, I pointed out the schizophrenia of Fox supporters saying that "Fox isn't biased" at the same time they say " Fox presents the RIGHT side only as a counter weight".
Realizing that Fox and the GOP slate of candidates SUCK doesn't put you on the other side of the spectrum, just sensible!
SOMEBODY tell me how GOP Wingers here see the winner of the 2 horse race, Rommney/Gingrich, as being good for the country?

It isnt and if Gingrich does win the nomination there is no way he will win the presidential election he will get destroyed by Obama.

Don't be too sure Obama will run.   If he does, he will be beat big by whoever unless there is a third party run.
