  3. That's just wrong.... it's her politics not her face that scares me... well maybe a little, but it's not relevant.

    Cheers!

  5. Finntann,

    It's a JOKE.

    I hope you were kidding at least as much as I?

    If not I'm going to have to start to worry about you.

    If any woman ever did have "a face that could stop a clock, " sure it is the unlovely Maxine Waters.

    FJ might have said "The face that sank a thousand ships."

    I did think of that, but just couldn't find quite the right graphic.

    I dunno 'bout you all, but a little gentle malice does a lot for me in giving relief to tension.

    Cheerio!

  6. This is the second time today I've been put in the position of having to explain that something is intended to be humorous, or in another case elsewhere -- satirical.

    Why should the internet be any more humor-challenged than any place else?

    I suspect it could be because with politics being the lugubrious, dull-witted affair it has become most of us have started to take ourselves and what we're discussing much too seriously.

    Without a sense of humor life, quite frankly, would be unbearable.

    Satirical humor is what attracted me to Rush Limbaugh in the first place. I just loved it when started to refer to Molly Yard, Bella Abzug, Elizabeth Holtzman, Betty "The Feminine Mystaque" Friedan, and Gloria Steinem as "FEMINAZIS."

    I loved it too when he referred libloons as "COMPASSION FASCISTS" and when he started performing"CALLER ABORTIONS" accompanied by the sound of a vacuum cleaner when one of his callers became too obnoxiously inane.

    I loved it too when he started telling his audience "Many accidents are caused by women farding at intersections."

    Well, you KNOW what THAT sounded like over the air, but he kept on doing it even though he finally did explain that "farding" is a legitimate-if-somewhat-archaic term for "putting in makeup."

    I LOVED it -- ALL of it.

    I don't think it was Rush who said on air, but I've always loved this little rhyme:

    Remember the days before Gloria Steinem,
    When all you hadda do was wine 'em and dine 'em?"


    Now, if I have to explain THAT to you, you really are seriously "humor-challenged."

    We can still find something to enjoy in life, even if we're being transported to the gallows in a tumbril.

    come to think of it a wonderful book came out in my lifetime called Tumbril Talk. Alice Roosevelt Longworth was extensively quoted in it, if I remember correctly.

    In my opinion all of us ought to get a copy, and learn how discuss serious things a bit less seriously.
