    I remember one Democratic politician was once called a “reverse Houdini” because he kept escaping from a position of safety to a position of danger, over and over. (I’m thinking it was George Will that called him that although I can’t remember who the politician himself was.) There’s a lot of truth to that for certain politicians of both parties….

    The rabid dogs will slip on the roller skate and banana peels, sending them down the manhole. Actually, that’s what happened last week at the RNC., So the only question is whether falling piano will cover the opening in time so the couple can safely pass…

    “I don’t belong to any organized political party. I’m a Democrat” Will Rogers.

    Why are manhole covers round?

    FDR said something like ‘Of course Republicans never bump into each other. They’re not going anywhere.’

    How many filibusters in the last three years? Somewhere between 300 and 400?

    The dogs are chasing a black cat across the couple’s path toward their left. Perhaps it will make a u-turn and reverse course, which would portend good luck for them, if it crosses to their right.

    As if.

    Oliphant forgot any precariously placed mirrors, near as I can see.

    I may vote for Chthulu after all.

    While Will Rogers was certainly correct, at most times, have the Republicans left any banana peels after THEIR “convention”?

    @ahab

    assuming your question is sincere it is because a round manhole cover cannot fall into the hole, unlike a squre one./

    Correct, even a politician couldn’t screw it up.

    Can the Democrats screw things up ? Of course they can, they exercise freedom of speech.

    The Republican Convention convinced the punters that they are certain to win. The House. And Obama has a 70% chance of re-election. And another four more years of deadlock, which seems far, far better than the alternative.


    (Deadlock was the objective of the Founding Fathers: As they said, “If highwaymen overtake a stagecoach and demand a vote on whether or not to redistribute wealth, regardless of whether there are five highwaymen and four passengers, or four highwaymen and five passengers, it’s still highway robbery.” So the founding fathers created a system which makes it likely that nothing will happen. Which is why the Senate requires that Democrats have at least 60 votes to pass a law, but Republicans only need 51 votes.)
