Barack Obama, our next President

appearing with Obama was fine, but slobbering him with praise was way over the line.....maybe Christie was suffering from lack of sleep or lack of food.....

Hannibal Keisterwitz, aka, "Fred," sat in his apartment with the shades drawn down and the lights off. He didn't really have a choice about the lights, because he lived in a Downy Toilet Paper box in an alley and he really didn't have windows or shades, just a slit cut in the side of the box with a paper towel pasted over it.

Hannibal had stolen an I-pad several weeks ago and every morning he'd take it down to the shelter to charge the batteries. He no longer ate, or bathed, or spoke, he simply would take the machine and charge it, then return to his big box in the alley and type.

For some reason, Fred could no longer relate to other people face to face so this was his sole means of interfacing with the world.

He'd found Topix very early on and had developed relationships there that, in his tortured mind, seemed almost real. It was as if he could be anyone he wanted to be, a successful billionaire, a decorated veteran, anyone, and he had "friends there too. Real friends, people whom he would never see and who would never see him in his box, alone, and frightened, and hungry.

For Fred, his stolen computer was the last link he had with the physical world and as the hunger and the loneliness took hold of him he began to forget there even was a physical world. Fred discovered that the keys of the machine had become sticky. Each time he touched one it would resist when he went to lift a finger to touch the next.

yeah, the United Mine Worker's Union has always been a rightwing organization......

coal mining is a way of life in Western PA, not just a job.....coal miners have zero interest in being retrained for "green" jobs....

I seriously worry for you when Romney loses. Do you have a support system around you? Friends, family?

Dear Rightwingers,

After Romney loses, Homer hereby declares his will be a shoulder you can cry on. Also, once the outcome is declared I will take a brief hiatus from casting any aspersions in your general direction.

If the impossible does happen and Romney were to win, albeit probably due to voter suppression, voter fraud or what have you, Homer will be in a congratulatory mode, again for just a short time.

Sincerely,

Homer

Stick a fork in Romney, he's done. Despite all the flip-flopping he did while in the frying pan. He's one cooked salmon.

I said 'Romney' ads, there is no mention of him in any of the ads I have seen. Apparently they don't know what to think or say about Romney either, with all the flipflopping.

Christie may be forgiven if Romney wins....otherwise a Conservative opponent will defeat him in the primary next year....

but maybe the Democrats will nominate Christie for Governor....
