    What? The football player’s girlfriend never existed?

    Not necessarily a good thing. It’s been suggested that, since a middle linebacker is considered the QB of the defense, his draft chances might have evaporated due to lack of judgment.
    .
    And now people are “Te’oing”, putting an arm around an imaginary girlfriend (similar to Tebowing, which thankfully has passed from the popular media).

    Which would prove security is still a few years behind the times. In real life, he’d have streamed the video in real time to the cloud, and the thing would already be going viral by the time the thugs found out.

    That probably didn’t happen to whoever tapped the 47 % speech. An inside job is an inside job.

    Yeah, but even the dumbest people can learn something once in a while, especially if it helps their survival. I’m with Clark on this one.

    Suppression is a matter of perspective. Republicans see cemeteries for example, as places to pay respects to the dead that should stay dead. Democrats see cemeteries as residential areas for zombies to be periodically brought back to life as voters.

    Leaving pithy comments on a cartoon strip. Seriously? You are pathetic. Get a life.

    Your remark does not deserve a response. However, I will make an observation of my own: I am so glad that I’m not a member of the GOP (Guns Over People).

    Thanks for your pithy comment, Bill. Good luck finding a life.

    Now, now, the voter-suppression thing is just an intermediary step until we can transition over to a “one dollar, one vote” system like the Founding Fathers REALLY intended!

    “but now people that don’t even follow football know who he is”


    I’ve gathered from the background chatter this morning that some football player has been found to have an imaginary girlfriend. I suspect that by the time the news cycle finishes I’ll have some short-term recall of his name, but that’s not the same as “knowing who he is”, and a month from now he’ll probably be (to me) just “that football player who had an imaginary girlfriend.”


    Of course, I don’t see anything wrong with imaginary girlfriends. I’ve had my share of them, and while they’re less satisfying in the long run than real ones, they’re very low-maintenance.
