You say that, but you don't really want it. Nobody really wants that.
I very clearly remember crystal pepsi.

It was good.

You *remember* that it was good. That's what it does. It's craft that way.
It's Crystal Pepsi, not the Crystalline Entity.

I admit as an outsider to that particular culture, I get pleasure in seeing figures such as Huckabee struggle so ineffectually at trying to articulate their supposed status as an infringed upon group in the United States. That feeling isn't helpful to dialogue, but I rarely don't experience it at least in passing.

I really do love the whole thing with a christian persecution complex. It's fascinating on many levels.

His apparent logic calls for a) the return of prohibition, and b) severe limitations to the 1st amendment. So thats... um... yes.

“In hindsight I regret contributing to the premature deification of Sarah Palin,” columnist Matt Lewis wrote Wednesday in the Daily Beast.

He added that “maybe her early critics saw some fundamental character flaw — some harbinger of things to come — that escaped me.”

maybe like how she didn't know that africa was not a country but a continent with a large number of countries on it

or maybe how she adamantly refused interview preparation and training for her on screen time with katie couric, and was just generally so abrasive to the 'little people' around her that staff members had an annoyingly consistent pattern of literally quitting in tears

Sarah Palin > Rick Santorum

Even Fox News anchors had trouble with him.

Being unable or unwilling to name a single publication that she reads? Being unable to speak in clear, concise sentences? Having less political experience than literally every other governor in the country at the time?

Its always a little bit amazing when a person like Santorum is essentially aware and worried about the impact of being forced to defend their policy exactly as it is, so they try to ... Carefully sidestep it and like in this case make DADT to be not what it actually is

Even though it was a setup, it was fun watching him eat crow when the quote he agreed with was against racial integration. He then pointed out that black rights and gay rights aren't the same thing because, essentially, black people can't help the fact that they're black but gay people can stop being gay.

i am completely 100% sure after he spent years being crushed down for his legitimately bigoted statements and legislative motives he chalks it up to being a poor oppressed christian held down by cruel secular society which is the real bigot

because, you know, that's what they do. even after they get called out for literally making the same arguments against gays that were once made against blacks to try to keep them intentionally persecuted second class citizens in any way possible
