What does sexual orientation have to do with job performance?

Remember, obsession signals desire.

All will be just dandy. There will be a rainbow, style and o prettiness will prevail. The new order will be met with parades and finery. Violence will cease and peace will prevail.

Milk and honey with white wine has come to formerly gritty Pittsburgh. Taxes will decline, assessments lowered, streets repaired, many more entertainment venues and peace among the children.

May we all live in the glow of the happiness which will descend on the residents of Pittsburgh.

Now, if we could only keep those terrible suburbanite leeches out. It would be Eden for sure. Again, not to worry, Billy's boss, Sweat Shop Fitz, will take care of that nasty old county problem..

There's a difference between gritty and gross. Pittsburgh could use a little queer eye.

True; closeted Republican politicians sacrifice their creative sides on the altar of conservatism. No imagination in the GOP!

I don't know. Death panels were creative. I wouldn't have thought of it. Then again, I didn't see Logan's Run, which is right up there with Lethal Weapon and Rambo in the tea bagger's top ten greatest movies of all time. They also have good imaginations when it comes to guns - the imaginary black helicopters and their bizarre fantasies of protecting their trailers in a shootout with intruders were always pretty impressive. And only a Republican could ever come up with the word "strategery."

I'll agree that the rantings of crazy people may be creative in a pure sense of the word, but those who would seek to govern must temper that "creativity" with a practicality essential to successful action in the real world.

Practicality and rational thought and reason are all synonymous with things tea baggers don't understand.
