Oh that man has made a fool of himself.... I loved Obama's retort though in the debate about horses and bayonets :)

I don't know....some of the Senators who spoke about "legitimate rape" and how a woman's body can "shut down" a pregnancy rank right up there. I'm surprised they weren't included.

I like: ""I'm an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability."
It made sing the following from "Pirates of Penzance":

I am the very model of an honorary Consul-General
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral
I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical
From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical

I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse

With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse

I'm very good at integral and differential calculus
I know the scientific names of beings animalculous
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of an honorary Consul-General.
For this I am a master of inviolability!

Here's my absolute favorite quote of this or any other campaign in my lifetime:

"If you say you're for equal pay for equal work, but you keep refusing
to say whether or not you'd sign a bill that protects equal pay for equal
work, you might have Romnesia.

If you say women should have access to contraceptive care, but you
supported legislation that would let your employers deny you contraceptive
care, you might have a case of Romnesia.

And if you come down with a case of Romnesia, and you can't seem to remember
the policies that are still on your website or the promises you've made over the six
years you've been running for president, here's the good news....Obamacare covers
preexisting conditions! We can fix you up!

I laughed my ass off when I heard President Obama say this....I still do.

Best and stupidest all at the same time. The man wins something, at long last. And I really hope the LAST part sticks.
