I thought they took all the pseudoephedrine products off the shelves years ago, and replaced them with pseudo-pseudoephedrine products. If those women are out there cooking with the wrong ingredients, they're gonna be EXTREMELY cheesed off.

Herz will still be writing this stuff 4 years from now ... 8 years from now ... he'll still be writing this stuff when he's in assisted living, while the robots who change his diapers laugh at him behind his back..

Most people learn and grow. A few just burrow in and hunker down.
Aug 7 RonK, Seattle commented on Primary Dropout Tony Ventrella’s Candidacy Is Jeopardizing Dems' Chance of Reclaiming a Seat in Congress.
p.s. If Tony won 17.5%of statewide votes, he won 170% of votes in the 8th CD where he's (no longer) running.

@14 -- Yes, @9's claims are recycled repudiated BS, but they are zombie recycled repudiated BS.

Boy oboy this Herz.

Beinert's reading of the Muslim quote was uncharacteristically wack, as others have noted.

Big things cost big bucks, and not just this party this year.

And self-quoting to burnish your reputation as a prophet of doom? Believe me, your reputation precedes you.
Jul 25 RonK, Seattle commented on Bernie Sanders: "Hillary Clinton must become the next president of the United States!".
I didn't hear a great speech, and 2/3 of the folks I watched with nearly fell asleep ... a letdown after several outstanding performances.

Throughout the day, I DID hear a handful of pasty whites neophytes heckle and boo a long line of life-long black life-long laborers in the vineyards of progress in their rare moments in the spotlight.

That did not sit well with me, not at all.

@11 -- That's just more of your Dolchstosslegende Lite .. as expected.

Factions on the Right work together for power and influence despite sharp factional conflicts. In power, they "betray" each other because there's no alternative -- they have so many conflicting goals and motives -- and they're OK with that because they work together to achieve the achievable and settle for that.

Isn't it ironic (don't you think) that the Right -- which largely denies value, or even the existence, of social capital, social goods, social contracts, even Society itself -- is vastly more capable of strategically-cooperative collective action, while the Left eats its own and shits on its friends?

For decade after decade the Right successfully, incrementally, strategically buried its divisions and chipped away at New Deal and Great Society progressive legacies, leaving the Left swimming against the current in every pool, park, lake, stream and river.
