Reality is WW, I probably ignore a whole lot more than I lecture about.
But, where do you stand on such language?
Do you find it offensive, or just offensive that I didn't bring it up in this instance?
Or use?

BTW--as difficult as it has been to get a nominee, it seems to be at least as hard to come up with a viable VP candidate. First Bob (vaginal probe) McDonnel went down. Now it looks like Rubio is going to be tied in to the Stand Your Ground legislation.
Nobody (even the Repubs) really LIKES Newt, but he is a clever debater and a decent speaker (unlike Santorum and Romney). So maybe he could punch up the ticket a bit as VP.

Report this post. Chock full of unsavory language. Figures reader would post such an article and lecture others on their language. I always knew reader was a huge hypocrite. This article solidifies what I've known for years on here.

"A Virginia state senator gave Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) a new nickname on Tuesday, resurrecting a fight over McDonnell's support for legislation that would have mandated women have a transvaginal ultrasound before getting an abortion.

"[I]n Virginia ... we refer to Gov. Bob McDonnell as 'Governor VP'-- and that's not vice president, that's vaginal probe," said state Sen. Louise Lucas (D-Portsmouth) on a conference call organized by the Democratic National Committee."

Now, let's get something straight. You are a name-caller and get down and dirty just like the rest. You're more sly about it and that fools people, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.

I would have had a heart attack if you had just said,,,
you know BB....I should not have posted that article in its entirety.
I could have redacted it instead of just using an underscore to clearly leave the "c" word in it which was in fact unnecessary...
I am not surprised however , that in typical skimmer style you try to deflect blame with the kindergarten level excuse....he did it to......
By the way how the heck did you draw "used contraceptive device" out of what the other poster said?
What kind of stuff are you into? gesh.....
In fact, BB--I have said things very close to that if you have followed the whole thread.

But the point remains that there are far more posts here aimed at playing gotcha on Reader, than folks willing to address the content of the letter writer. And those who are protesting do not seem to care two figs about the language in other instances--only because it appeared under my name.

And maybe I am not up on vernacular, but s-c**b** to me has always meant a condom full of secretions. But I note that despite it appearing numerous times throughout this thread, nobody seems to notice or care.

Hello, is anybody home? Do I USE that sort of language?
Well, WW, I don't use that sort of language.

And as I noted above, I ignore it quite a bit. But I also talk about it.

So, since you seem to think that I shouldn't discuss it, or use it, but seem to have not problem with other folks, I gotta wonder if you are sincere in your protestations here today, or if you just relish playing the gotcha game.

So--I am asking for clarification.

If I hear Ann Romney talk about how she and Mitt lived in a “basement apartment” and “ate lots of pasta and tuna” because he’s a self-made man and “nobody handed him his success,” I might fucking implode…or worse. The thing about these people that scares the shit out of me is that they are so detached from reality they can’t even understand WHY us “common people” are annoyed. Maybe a letter is in order.
Dear Ann Romney,
No one really gives a shit that you are rich. No one begrudges you a good life or is insinuating that Mitt didn’t work hard to earn your money. Granted,“working hard” may have a vastly different meaning than taking over companies, loading them with debt, gutting them and then collecting huge fees to anyone with a modicum of conscience and decency, but we’ll get into that, as well as the tax havens and loopholes he milks for every last dime, some other time.
What you don’t seem to be able to get through your pretty little blond cranium is that, while you may have had to live in an apartment sans multiple Cadillacs and dancing horses in your college days, you always knew that there was a familial safety net there to catch you if you fell. You didn’t have to live with the terrorizing realization that your lights might get turned off at any moment because you chose to buy food or medicine for your kids instead of paying your overdue utility bill. You weren’t working two jobs while going to college, and STILL living in constant fear of eviction. You never had to apply for Food Stamps because your spouse died and then cower in embarrassment at the grocery store checkout counter, aware of the judgmental faces all around you glaring at the nice cake you put in your cart because it was the ONLY thing you could get your son for his 5th birthday.
In other words, you living like many of us live our entire lives for a couple of years isn’t reality…it’s a cute story, an anecdote to chuckle over at Thanksgiving dinner in one of your many mansions. It’s bullsh_t. You don’t know what it’s like to be a regular American any more than I know what it’s like to be a Sudanese orphan or a f_cking amoeba. I think it would make us all feel slightly better if you would just conjure up a little goddamned humility and admit that.
What is even more perplexing and infuriating is that the political party you endorse begrudges a social safety net to those not fortunate enough to be born into a supportive family. You don’t seem to grasp the fact that a stroke of PURE LUCK afforded you a start in life that most of us can only dream about. I’m not saying that your family didn’t have problems, as I’m sure they did, but regardless, they were able to care for you in a way that gave you huge educational and financial advantages. And, good for you! I’m happy for you and any other person that is raised in a stable environment. The difference between us is that I realize that when some poor soul is born into a situation with, say, a meth-addicted mother and an absent father, it is our job as society to make sure they have at least a chance in life.
We’re not all envious, Ann. We don’t want to take what you have or villainize you because you are able to live a luxurious lifestyle. We just want you to show some respect and compassion for all those not as blessed as you have been and confess that you have no idea what their lives are really like. In short, we want you to stop being such a self-deluded, egocentric daft c_nt.
Love,

The letter is right on point Reader, thanks for the post. The Stepford-wife musings of Ann Romney makes me physically wretch and I, for one, can't take her for longer than about 2 minutes.

She was never anything different than your garden variety trust-fund kid who wouldn't know a real day of work if her life depended on it. I'm not buying her "home with the kids" game either. She has nannies for all that "work". That's the difference between the likes of Romneys and that other Massachusetts family, the Kennedys. Kennedys, for all their faults, were raised on privilege but given from their youth a fundamental understanding of what the poor and middle classes had to work for to survive. You really believed they understood. That was real. The Romneys are fake.

The Romneys for all they're attempts look like nothing more than displaced relics of the "gee, golly" era -- a time at which wasn't so gee golly when you got under the surface smiles and the fresh pressed linens. But I digress.......

You really had no cred with me before so nothing really changes....

I went to the blog site you posted and for the most part there were many others just like you who delighted in the comments you posted.

Sad really that the enlightened compassionate liberals such as yourself who whine about the "war on women" feel free to unleash hate speech on any conservative female and in addition any black folks who do not agree with your agenda.

Spin and deflect all you want, but in the future you know what "YOU" posted and as far as I am concerned....Karma is a bytch skimmer....

Well of course she makes you wretch. You're envious because she has more femininity in her little toe than you can ever attain in your whole body, girly.

The only thing I like about the 50s and 60s was the music and miniskirsts on young ladies. What really makes me detest Romney as a person rather than his party or political views is like many of the children of the priviledged,he found a way to avoid the draft during that masterpiece of stupidity known as Viet Nam. It seemed like the children of the poor and middle class did all of the dying or were maimed either physically or mentally while someone like Romney was exempt for "religious puposes" preaching his Mormon BS in of all places Paris, France which is primarily a Catholic and secular country and could care less about Mormonism. Now at the behest of his zionist casino owning pig contributor , Adelson he is willing, if elected, to start a "preemptive war" with Iran. There was a term used in the sixties which was "plastic people" which referred to rich conforming sheeplike phonies. I think that description fits the Romneys perfectly. Besides the "let Detroit go bankrupt" crap and screwing so many workers out of their livelyhood through his "vulture" Bain Capital fundby bankrupting companies then making huge profits by selling them to other vultures at bargain basement prices the thing that disgusts me the most about him is his hypocrisy. I served during Nam went in naive came out very bitter and disgusted towards politicians. Iraq and Afghanhistan to me is a case of "Deja Vue."

What Reader wrote was although graphic very truthful. I grew up poor and became rich, I am not envious of the Romney's wealth either.I just despise phonies trying to impose their fantasy view of the world on others. What I cannot understand is why someone with a 250 million net worth would want the job of being president. It has to be an ego thing or to outdo "Daddy" who drove American Motors to the ground. I would vote for Howdy Doody against Romney. He represents everything I despise in this world. He is reminescent to me of some very bitter times in my youth.

So--you disagree that Ann Romney's tuna-noodle casserole remarks were demeaning to people that she doesn't understand in the least?
