Daddy’s Roommate

Daddy’s Roommate was on of several books that was challenged during the period of Sarah Palin’s inquiries into school libraries in the Wasilla region of Alaska.

When Laura Chase, Palin's first mayoral campaign manager, asked if she had read the book, the mayor responded, "she didn't need to read that stuff."

Go and smoke some more crack. I've dissected Chongo many times, and you make many lies, like now. You're a joke. You may now explain how those evasions of his serve as him putting me in my place. I ask questions that he cannot answer, and you claim that as victory. You are about as irrational as he is, to claim that.
Rose is female, oh great and wonderous dipshit.

Liza Lott often tosses around fancy legal terms in an attempt to imply he is a lawyer.
He doesn't believe in equal rights for people he doesn't like so he brings up obscure court cases and Latin mumbo jumbo in an attempt to conceal his hypocrisy.
Like I ask him why he is against equal rights for poly and he says "ex parti domino nexus" or some such nonsense.
I never implied I was a lawyer.
When did I use Latin mumbo jumbo? The only Latin I know is: Futue te ipsum!

No, of course we don't, even though you just did. You didn't say "all people have their evil types".... Just like that old racist never includes "Asians" in her racist remarks about who Jesus died for...

Your use of Pacman as a choice of options shows you are no more than an isolated working class hillbilly who relies on the internet and uses it to replace his life, since he really hasn't got one, and if he has, can't live for one day and accept it for what it is. The fact that he didn't use Xbox, or call of duty, or whatever games the kids play these days, shows he is so ignorant, and isolated. He doesn't have a TV, so no commercials to pick it up from, hasn't been to many peoples houses who have kids and saw call of duty on the kids shelves or an Xbox in their rooms, never seen an Xbox in stores, never passed by game stores, and probably lives in an isolated little suburban town!
