Put him in a longboat until he gets sober.

Which is what the Republicans need to do with the whackadoos who seem to be in charge of their party these days.

>>The Right Flames the Volt<<

Mainly lately I'm seeing the Right criticizing Obama for doing things they supported under George W. Bush, chiefly the Executive Order about nationalizing industries and resources in a crisis (Bush didn't specifically make an E.O., since he already had Clinton's, but he did do this as a Homeland Security Directive), and arresting and holding U.S. citizens without charges (which the Bush administration argued in favor of during the Padilla lawsuit).

"Money is more important for men"? I think those shitheads need to be strapped into a chair and have Lily Tomlin kick them repeatedly.

(Explanation: there's a scene in 9 to 5 where Dabney Coleman's character says essentially the same thing to Lily Tomlin's character, that he promoted a man over her because that man has a family to support. Never mind that Tomlin's character is a single mother, also with a family to support.)

"Money is more important for men"?

That's right up there with "Oh, she'll just get pregnant and quit, anyway."
