Idiot box thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Wussy, conveniently edited response to yet another one of your flubs, as usual.

"Dancing with the Celebrities" doesn't have a double meaning.

As to this season's cast, I think I'll probably tivo the show so I can zap through the Paula Deen parts.

I'm hoping that her dancing is as clumsy as her lexicon.

Unless they give her one of the black guys as a partner. :lol:
:o :thumbup:

People will vote for Busey just to keep the talking segments coming. Bindi will have a popularity advantage at the margins.
Dancing With the Stars Recap: Bindi Irwin Brings Her A Game, Paula Deen (Maybe) Soils Her Pants

... But nerves got the best of her (Paula) — and she knew it. "I was scared. I had white underwear when I started, but it probably ain't white no more!" Paula joked to the judges.

Julianne told Paula, "I felt like you were holding on to Louis for dear life," and Carrie Ann noted, "You just didn't quite get your feet under you so it felt like you were being dragged around a lot."

Score: 15 out of 30

Grade: C+ (Keep your underwear out of it, Paula!)

... Bindi is bubbly and full of life, and that came across as she hit the floor with Derek.

"That was the best performance of the night," Julianne declared, while Bruno added, "You really are the wonder from Down Under."

Score: 24 out of 30 (tied for first)

Grade: A+

... Though his dancing left much to be desired, Gary and pro partner Anna still made an impression, mostly due to Gary's signature nonsensical commentary. "When I'm talking to you, your left eye is spinning," he told Tom during their post-dance interview. Umm.

Bruno compared their performance to a "summer blockbuster" full of "chaos, mayhem, and destruction." For her part, Carrie Ann praised Gary's commitment, though she didn't say much about his dancing.

Score: 15 out of 30

Grade: B (Gary brought the weird!) ...
Hat trick! :thumbsup:

Cheaters always accuse you of cheating

Liars always accuse you of lying

Insecure people try to make you feel insecure

Pay attention to how people treat you; it's a reflection of who they really are.

On one hand this claim is often a cop-out by genuine cheaters and liars, genuinely caught. So it's worth consideration, but it's not a rule.

On the other hand, you can add more. For example the principle that the most homophobic people often turn out to be closet homosexuals.

Then there's the Reagan variation: The far right's gold standard for being anti-gun control / anti-big government / anti-regulations / anti-deficit spending / anti-abortion / anti-taxes.... is inevitably *pro*-any of these things when compared to whomever the right attacks on these issues.

That was pretty obscure, even by Jeopardy standards.

I think that I would have guessed Little Rock based on "1957", but I may have subconsciously seen it further down the page as I was reading an article about the Jeopardy result.

I may not watch, but this looks fun tonight:
20/20: A Capitol Offense

Michigan state Rep. (Tea Party Republican) Todd Courser is caught on tape scheming to spread rumors he was involved in casual gay sex to help cover an extramarital affair between him and a colleague, Rep. (Tea Party Republican) Cindy Gamrat.

Gosh; what would Defender of Marriage Kim Davis say about THAT? Perhaps we can ask her kids, who were fathered by her eventual third husband while she was married to her first husband, and were adopted by her second/fourth husband.
