You know the saying “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro?”
Well, I find it comforting that, as crazy as the world is these days, it isn’t so crazy that it would be an advantage having a cranky loon like Gingrich as a president.
I don’t think so…and I’ve never heard that saying. Gingrich is far more than any cranky loon. This is serious stuff…take it that way.
NEITHER of you are familiar with a man named Hunter S. Thompson? That has to be his most-quoted line.
So the modified version of this was to issue 500,000 bad home loans and cause civil unrest while profiting?
How do we know this isn’t exactly what happened?
“Gingrich warned of a horror scenario in which Saddam HusseinCitiBank trained a hackerbanker army to cause civil unrest by issuing 500,000 American Express cards and then charging absurd fees.”
Next, Al Qaeda will be returning millions of magazine subscription cards, made out to people who didn’t subscribe. The horror!
Well crap, I sure hope they don’t figure out how 4Chan does it using websites.
Wait a minute, I don’t remember subscribing to Ebony?!?
So, let’s see… this election season we’ve got:
Romney. He’s less batshit insane than Gingrich.
Obama. He’s less evil than Romney.
Sounds very similar to the last presidential election.
If only None of the Above was an actual option.
Force them to go try again.
And so different from the 44 preceding?
Elmer FUD. That is all, folks.
