As bad as Fillmore, Pierce, and Buchanan were, I maintain their foulness is eclipsed by (in ascending order of rottenness) Nixon, Reagan, W, and Tweety Amin.
But to be fair (as I’ve said before), DJT has set new standards for Presidents: Less knowledge that W, more dementia that Ronnie, more paranoia than Tricky Dick, less couth than LBJ, more racism than Jackson, and more criminality than Bush, Reagan, Nixon, Harding, and Grant combined.
A professor of mine told a class she had volunteered to model while in late pregnancy; the art prof told her “My dear, we’re looking for a figure model!”
Myself, I think it would have been a great exercise (and beautiful).
That is a measured, considered, and rational assessment of the running train wreck that has been the Trump “administration” and the spoiled infant at its “head”.
“….dems are out to get trump….”
Only so far as everybody should be “out to get” any threat to both the future of the Republic and standards of human decency.
The idea that white meat is “healthier” is based on the idea that fat is bad for you. But it came out a few years ago that all those studies showing that eating fat made people become obese and die were commissioned by the sugar industry, in hopes of diverting people from the fact that if you eat sugar, you become obese and die.
Yes, in excess fat can be harmful – but in general, “fat” is another word for “flavor”. When said studies hit, there was a frantic move to take the fat of everything – which everything tasting like cardboard. So the food processors asked “What can do to make it tasty? I know; let’s add high-fructose corn syrup!” And now the country is fat and diabetic.
If anything were in question, sure they would have. But were it as clear-cut as this was, of course not; they are, after all (unlike Tweety Amin) sane adults.
And either way, they wouldn’t be throwing a tantrum and refusing to do a transition.
Turkey dry? Only if you eat the white meat. As with chicken, breast meat is dry & flavorless, thigh meat is moist & tasty.
I will never understand the general fixation on white meat, as if it were in some way superior. f I had to eat white meat, I wouldn’t eat poultry (well, maybe duck; the dichotomy isn’t as strong with duck).
Ralph. Though, as the walls are stone, more likely taped than pinned.
Of course, saying “more liberal than the pilgrims” is akin to saying “more liberal than Strom Thurmond”.
“Men’s football and basketball are the big money makers on campus. "
But they only make money for the athletic programs. A couple years ago the faculty at my alma mater (D-2 state university) were unionizing, and brought in an outside auditor to look at the school’s expenses; after all factors – ticket sales, coaches’ salaries, logo-wear sales, and even the much-vaunted alumnæ donations, were considered, operating the football program costs the school $11,000,000 per year ($12,100,000 when they make it to bowl game)
Football & basketball corrupt schools, drain resources from education, and just generally are, in the words of the great Robert Maynard Hutchins (spoken as he ended University of Chicago’s program), “totally incompatible with education”.
