Boy, from one extreme to the other - Elizabeth Warren, classy lady with great intelligence and understanding of the world - down to Rush Limbaugh.... well, you know where he is on the ladder.
So Virginia is not for lovers after all.... thank goodness for people like Lawrence O'Donnell who keep us informed of things like this - wouldn't want to go into Virginia without being aware of how that state thinks...and wouldn't you think Republicans would have more to keep them busy than sticking their noses into where they don't belong?

We need a whole lot more people like Elizabeth Warren, she is like a breath of rational air. Quite refreshing.

Republicans sure are concerned with what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own bedrooms. Now if they were just as concerned with what rapists are doing in other people's bedrooms and living rooms and alley ways and, and, and. And I'm just totally touched by Ken Cuccinelli's concern over pedophilia. So, when's he going after the Catholic Church for their continued enablement of their pedophile priests? Oh, ha ha, silly me--the Catholic Church has $$$$. Can't offend them!

Elizabeth Warren was blocked, but the other two videos were great. For an outsider this is all too hilarious.
Thanks again TomCat

Ken Cuccinelli would probably be the first in line to help locate people breaking the sodomy law. I am confident the man is a pervert in disguise. Does he ever do anything but get involved in personal matters between two people?

We need more people like Eliz Warren, I watched her shred the fellow on CNBC.

I do not know if you meant it, literally, Arielle, but yes "down to Rush Limbaugh," down to the cesspool.
"HYPOCRISY," thy name is GOPster!!
The GOP is always going to battle for small government, so how you gonna know what we do in our private bedrooms, or kitchens,etc.?

I wouldn't know, but it seems to me, like Arielle says, that if you mind your own business you won't be so enticed by that which is not your business. Me, I'm too busy trying to keep my own life honest, productive and worth while without being concerned with other peoples hush hush affairs.

Eureka!!! That's it. Those nosey people are trying to squash their own concerns and conscious by getting very busy with OTHER PEOPLE's affairs. Then they don't HAVE to mind their own affairs and their own commitments and promises to the people who elected them.

It's a dodge out. " Don't look at what I'm doing, Now do you know who Jim had in his apartment last night?
I could hear them through the wall,"

No one really gives a dang what Jim does in his apartment.

Perhaps it simply is an effort to keep the spotlight on other people.

And it's not working,

We know what the traitors are doing.

Puzzle 3:55 I damn near cut off my foot trying tip-toe through the daisies!

Daily Kos I would have liked to hear her but I had to settle for the snippet printed at the site since the video was unavailable due to copyright. Go Elizabeth! It must really piss off some of the Republicanus/Teabaggers to be set straight by a woman, a "delicate little flower!"

YouTube Why anyone would listen to that racist, bigoted troll is beyond me!

MSNBC Cuccinelli is a rabid dog that needs to be put out of Virginia's misery. Haven't Virginians suffered enough with Governor Ultrasound? How is he going to enforce the law have the NSA beef up its surveillance techniques. Lawrence has a point too will Cuccinelli answer truthfully if asked if he has only had vaginal sex? I think he'd have to be wired to a lie detector before I would even consider his answer. Lawrence was good he even got beeped at the end!

Cartoon Yup, just like a Republicanus/Teabagger! Dress one way, and they accuse women of being sluts! Dress more modestly including bloomers, and they are dressed so theRepublican/Teabaggers can't get at the women fast enough! Let's hear it for bloomers!

Thanks everyone. The Warren video was part of the article I was referencing. Getting them pulled is seldom a problem with NBC, but I suspect they don;t want so many people to see their personalities get so thoroughly trashed.

Great cartoon. That movement was initiated right here on Seneca Lake, NY where the ladies from the cities would come to cool off in our very deep lake waters.

That didn't work this week as it was a burner. We went to the Adirondack mountains and even the mountain top we climbed was a burner -worse down low. TC, one thing I did note, I could breathe so much better up there. Maybe you should consider Colorado (high country)?

John G, I am in Colorado, and, while this year has not been QUITE as hot as last year, we also had no winter, and we are still having temperatures this summer that, years ago, were undreamed of. I don't think there is a safe place. Maybe, for a while, Antarctica.

Thank you both.

John, I once lived in Denver and loved the high country, but it's not the place for someone on Oxygen :-)

Joanne, there may well be an Antarctic rain forest.
