Bambi: not sure if it will happen before we're toast though ... at the rate things are going
Principalpoop: maybe the south will rise again, hah
Kohntarkosz: That's an old Letterman or Leno joke
Bambi: lol
Kohntarkosz: WHenever whichever President it was who they dug up to prove that he had been poisoned
Kohntarkosz: He was a Whig Party guy
Kohntarkosz: and whichever talk show host said, "He wasn't just a Whig Party member, he was also The President"
Dexter Fong: Read today another southern Repblican polotician (Attounery General IIIRC) busted ina cemetary naked with a hooker and some "sex toys"
llanwydd: well, ron paul had been running for president since the year one
Principalpoop: poisoned on purpose or by mistake using old medicines?
Kohntarkosz: What is it with these politicians all of a sudden?
Kohntarkosz: It's like these guys are just LOOKING to get busted
Principalpoop: i just have a wide stance hehe
Kohntarkosz: It's like there's a competition to see whose career can come to the most spectacularly decadent end
Bambi: then maybe he's the most experienced llan lol
Kohntarkosz: One guy gets caught with a floozy
Dexter Fong: He was poisened by the aresenic powder they used on his whig
Kohntarkosz: The next one gets caught with a floozy in Rio
Bambi: Firefox 3.5.4 is out
Kohntarkosz: Then the next one after that gets busted in a men's room at Dullus Airport
Dexter Fong: Out of what?

Kohntarkosz: then the South Carolina governor
Dexter Fong: Everybody is under scrutiny these days, ask Tweeny
Kohntarkosz: Let's not forget about the congressman who got busted sexually harassing the male intern or whatever i twas
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: SeaMonkey is apparently now using the same guts as the current version of Firefox
Principalpoop: just seems like it, remember mills with fanny foxx at the jefferson memorial?
Kohntarkosz: I mean all of this is in like the last 4 or so years
Popiel'sPocketTweeny adjusts his Prisoner cameras
Kohntarkosz: Mills? No I don't
Kohntarkosz: That might have been before my time
Kohntarkosz: I remember that guy who got busted back in the 80's
Bambi: back again

Dexter Fong: BYes Klhn
Principalpoop: this was the 70s
Kohntarkosz: SOmeone found a picture of some floozy (and it wasn't his wife) sitting on his lap
Kohntarkosz: Can't remember who that was now

Kohntarkosz: BUt he was running for President in 84 or 88, I think
Dexter Fong: But it was autographed Clem
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: lol clem

Kohntarkosz: Or as he is known in Canada, Gary Hart
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: Even 'squeaky clean' isn't good enough these days.
cease: wasnt the girl named donna rice?
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: You have to be a media icon.
Dexter Fong: The autograph said, From jesus to Gary, I'll never forget that night
Kohntarkosz: Yeah, I think you're right, it WAS Donna Rice
Principalpoop: cat wins
Kohntarkosz: Some newspaper published a photo of Donna Rice sitting on Gary Hart's lap
llanwydd: this was 1986 wasn't it?
cease: guess he was wading into the rice paddies too much
Popiel'sPocketTweeny couldn't be squeaky fromme, let alone squeaky clean
Dexter Fong: I thought it was Mandy Rice-Davies
Kohntarkosz: It was during the run up to the 88 election
Kohntarkosz: Because Gary Hart was running for the Presidency,
Kohntarkosz: But that one photo instantly killed him
Bunnyboy: #@($^& Yankees!
Kohntarkosz: Then you've got Jessie Jackson mouthing off about NYC and Jews
Popiel'sPocketTweeny: You have to be a 'christian' corporate pirate like Bush to win ;)

cease: wanted to tell her it was shown in canada last weekend. excellent shows
llanwydd: Oh, now that I think of it, I was going to tell you how I liked The Purple Rose of Cairo
Bunnyboy: cat: I think El stated her intention to concentrate on the Series...

Kohntarkosz: It could have been 86, like I said, he was running for the Presidential nomination for the 88 election
llanwydd: which I finally saw last Thursday night
cease: tell a vision, llan
Bambi: yes, how as it llan?

Kohntarkosz: Falls in love with the girl in the audience
Dexter Fong: yes
Principalpoop: spoiler alert?
Bambi: lol that good, huh?
