commented on This Is What You Get, Liberals: Obama's Surveillance Scandal
@57: Definitely have thought about it, but still can't see that the GOP obstructionism, the 2010 midterm backlash, etc., wouldn't have been just as hysterical and vicious. Yeah, we'd have lost out on the birther controversy for lulz and some of the odder conspiracies that Obama seems to bring out, but no reason to believe that Whitewater and all of the 1990s "scandals" wouldn't replay under Hillary.

Well I'm from the 1870s and when we had music festivals it was one cent gets your whole family a bowl of turtle soup, a bag of onions, and a 3 day pass to the washboard tent. They really crammed everyone into the tent, mules and dogs and all, turtle soup spilling everywhere and not a lick of elby-room to scratch yourself. Nothing but glorious washboard music for three sleepless nights, or until the tent burned down from the gaslights. You can't do that these days with your Kenyay West and your wub-wub-wub-SKRREEE but these were simpler times.
